Following the social media backlash Memphis Depay faced following the late drama at Stamford Bridge, Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney, had this to say:

“Memphis is a fantastic player and that happens, we all give bad passes away. A lot of things happened from when you give the ball away to when they’ve scored the goal, so I don’t think we can stand here and blame Memphis.”

The England international did, however, have a few suggestions as to what was to blame for the Red Devil’s failure to win on Sunday and their poor campaign in general.


Louis van Gaal is clearly a stubborn chap, and the Dutchman just perseveres, irrelevant of whether it suits the players at his disposal, was his bloody philosophy – if anyone actually knows what his philosophy is, please do tell us.



“You’ll never win anything with kids”, although Alan Hansen was proved to be painfully wrong, this current bunch (which includes the wonderfully named Borthwick-Jackson) are hardly the Class of ’92.



The man is insufferable, with his ‘woe is me’ mentality and controversial press conferences; his attitude and approach really isn’t doing Manchester United any favours.



van Gaal didn’t leave enough in the budget to pay off the refs like Sir Alex Ferguson was shrewd enough to do.
