Who else thinks we should keep Fellaini? I'd rather not sell him, he'd be a great player to bring on against certain teams or in a match against a team we're failing to penetrate. He seems liked amongst the squad too which is great for team spirit which as we've seen with leceister. Can make all the differenence.

I would keep him as well. he gets a ton of abuse and is sometimes clumsy but he offers an element that's completely unique and if utilized correctly he can terrorize teams.

Good, some of you guys agree, will be interesting to see what happens to him. Have a feeling mourinho quite likes him and has already spoken sbout the importance of a squad. Can understand why Moyes may be interested!

I'd sell him. I don't think we will use him properly because he isn't good enough to start and the temptation to "go long" is too tempting too early if ever we are not in control. Plan B shouldn't always be Fellaini but with that weapon in your arsenal you kind of have to do it.

We would get £15m+ I reckon and he must be on a decent wage. We have a lot of midfielders that can do a better job in CM, we have a lot of AM's as well. He can serve a purpose of course and I used to really like Fellaini, but he disrupts games too much by his presence and it isn't typically positive. That works for Everton's of the world but not for Utd's imo.

Nothing against the big man, but he isn't quite good enough and the X factor he brings isn't that useful an X as the majority of our players haven't played the style of "hit the big man".

Nor for me, never a United player in the first place. Simply not good enough. If plan B is knock it long to the big man then we have truly lost our way.

The Beast, AJH I have to agree he is not good enough for United and in games in our glory years we never used that type of plan b, sure we threw the kitchen sink at it but can't remember ever just luping a ball in the box for a big man. Also would any of the top tier european teams have him in their team? I would say they wouldn't.

If plan B is knock it long to the big man then surely we have Ibrahimovic for that. You know a big man with the actual talent needed to play for a top side. Sorry Fellaini isn't good enough and is only an obstical for talented youngsters.

i was thinking more he puts himself about ruffs people up .
we have a lot of nice players, but the wig can change things when things aren't going your way.
i can see jose liking him.

Never good enough for a top 6 team. Maybe not as bad as rival fans or even some of our own would have you believe but what does he actually do well on a consistent basis? That for me is the crux, where we have lost our way these last few years by having players that can "do a job " or " I can play him there " and not having a starting line up of 11 excellent or very good players in their own positions.

Same opinion as jred here. Keep him, gets about, not too friendly and can always be a decent alternative if things aren't going our way.

12.) 03 Aug 2016

Problem with using him as plan B is that he is always prone to a straight red leaving us with plan C in a crunch situation.

I would sell him for some reasons stated above.

Good debate this one. I'd keep him personally. He is a good age, has good experience, plenty of energy and is a pain to play against. As far as midfielders go, he's contributed more in there than Ander and Basti have since they joined the club! Somehow Ander escapes crtiscism as he our latest cult hero, but he hasn't shown anything consistently that he is good enough for our midfield either. Hopefully both can shine under Jose. I think Basti will be off.

Cant beleive how much my opionion has changed over felleini.

Never thought i'd say this but i think keep him! I also genuinely think JM will find a use for him.

Agree he is not good enough but having said that there are plenty others I would rather see the back of. Felliani's ability is limited but he always gives his all for the shirt when he gets an opportunity.

Doesn't he have 1 red card in 3 years?

19.) 03 Aug 2016

The worrying thing is sometimes Mourninho has reverted to Anti football down the years and with Felliani around it could be very tempting if things don't go to plan.

Glue his elbows to his chest and he can do a decent job.

Remember them 2 corners we launched into the big man Sheringham (who we brought off the bench as plan B) and Schmeichel who came up for the 1st corner in 1999? Didn't see many people complaining that we were just banging it in to the big man.

Having a different plan is not a bad thing and some people need to get over themselves if they think United are too good to occasionally get the ball high into the box.

I agree Fellaini probably isn't the man to do it with and Ibra will be more than capable, but having a different plan does not mean anti-football, if it works then it is brilliant.

Agree GDS but this was injury time on a cup final, LVG shed to use Fellaini more quickly and in Legue games. It's a slippery slope and even if a valid Plan B, not sure Fellaini is the right man.

i think that's a good post i fully agree . the wig has done more in a united shirt than herrera imo.
