Mata: This season isn’t just Moyes’ fault

With reports in the press suggesting that David Moyes could lose his job at the end of the season and be replaced with a manager with a proven European pedigree, Juan Mata has urged everyone at United to stick together and not look to point the finger of blame.

"We have to be together," said Mata.

Signs of life have become growingly infrequent. Once an arena filled with joy and optimism, now bogged down in gloom and misery. Over the years a pantheon of greatness has now become a desolate, barren wasteland. Like the fall of Constantinople before it, Manchester was besieged and broken, what was once United is now torn apart.

German newspaper BILD is reporting this evening that one of our transfer targets for this summer, Ilkay Gundogan, has signed a contract extension with Borussia Dortmund.

It was reported five days ago that he was ruled out of the World Cup with an injury to his back which has kept him out all season.

How strange it is to be watching Manchester United treat the closing weeks of a season as a sandbox rather than a run-in. With their every trophy-hunting hope having been dashed by mid-April all that is now left for David Moyes is a period of extended limbo, ripe for experimentation.

The products of this tinkering could yet decide whether he remains at Old Trafford after the summer, as if the board wish to judge him on his workings rather than the underwhelming final results of the Scot's first campaign.

Pictures appeared in the press last week showing Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young going out in town after the defeat against Bayern Munich. They were out until the early hours and were seen dancing in the street and chatting up girls.

Reports in the press have today claimed that Moyes has fined the players for this.

Last week, David de Gea was voted Player of the Month by the fans and there are strong calls for him to be voted Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year too.

De Gea received a lot of criticism in the press when he first joined the club and opposition fans used to chant "dodgy keeper" at him. Last season he was named PFA Goalkeeper of the Year though and has expressed his gratitude towards United fans for their support.

Billy Whelan joined the United ranks when he was just a teenager and made his debut for the club when he was 19-years-old. The following week he scored his first goal for the club.

Whelan went on to play 98 games for United and scored an incredible 52 goals. He was on the plane with the team as they returned home from Munich and sadly, aged just 22, he died in the crash.

I genuinely wanted to support whoever replaced Sir Alex Ferguson until the bitter end. I've always enjoyed the siege mentality that our former manager instilled in us and was ready to back his replacement.

When David de Gea replaced Edwin Van der Sar, the press ate him up for breakfast. That first game against City in the Charity Shield was a nightmare.

Reactions to United’s defeat against Bayern Munich

1. If someone had told you when the draw was made that United would lose 4-2 on aggregate, you would probably be fairly happy with that. The expectation was that United were going to get battered and a 4-2 to scoreline is pretty reasonable. We are the 7th best team in England playing against the German and European champions, yet, bizarrely, this feels likely an opportunity lost.

Less than a year ago, Danny Welbeck scored the biggest goal of his Manchester United career when he put his boyhood team 1-0 up against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

"He was marvellous," Sir Alex Ferguson said after the game. "It is a pity he got cramp at the end of game, but he worked so hard.
