Whilst patience with Nani is something that ran out a long time ago for some United fans, I'm definitely still in his corner and hope that we one day get to see him playing consistently well in our shirt. In 2010-2011 he was voted our best player by his team mates, thanks to the brilliant performances he put in mainly on the right wing.
Wilf Zaha has yet to feature for United this season and there have been suggestions that David Moyes just didn't fancy the player. He was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson as a replacement for Nani, who was set to leave the club this summer. The plans changed when Moyes was given the job though, with him signing Nani up on a five year deal.
Nani has spoken out in favour of David Moyes, claiming he's received a much-needed confidence boost since the Scotsman replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in July.
Timely though the confidence boost might have been, United are still to reap the benefits, with Nani starting only five Premier League games this season and, much like fellow wingers Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young, failing to impress this season.
Manchester United have managed just three wins from six matches this season and it has been one of the primary reasons behind their poor start to the season. David Moyes appears close to turning things around, as United have been going on a good run in recent weeks. However, it is still some way off before United get back their swagger and winger Nani reckons that the club needs to improve the home form.
Manchester United have began to pick up some pace this season having started to string together a few victories and their come from behind win at Old Trafford last weekend looks to have been the dose of "we have what it takes without Fergie," that they might have needed.
Javier Hernandez has been the hero once again as of late but he is expected to be rested in order to see Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie once again partner in attack.
David Moyes has rushed to defend Nani after the Portuguese was booed off the pitch by sections of United fans during Saturday's 3-2 win against Stoke City.
Nani, who had been at his frustrating best throughout the afternoon, was substituted by Adnan Januzaj after 58 minutes and the Portuguese was targeted by boos as he left the pitch, after some fans had allowed their frustration to spill over and directed their anger to the Portuguese.
Manchester United have been granted a brief reprieve with their 3-2 come-from-behind victory over Stoke City today. But for many supporters, the performance of the team for the majority of the match was extremely poor. If it weren't for the efforts of Wayne Rooney, Adnan Januzaj, David de Gea and Chicharito, the Red Devils would have been answering some serious questions following the match at Old Trafford.
Manchester United will be walking into a cauldron of noise when they enter Donbass Arena for their UEFA Champions League match against Shakhtar Donetsk today. Donetsk has never lost at home to an English team in the Champions League and their manager, Mircea Lucescu, has already started the mind games with Manchester United.

I am stunned that Manchester United have given Nani a new five year contract with a pay raise!
Nani had fallen out of favor with Fergie and United tried to sell him last summer and again in January. With less than 12 months left on his current deal, I had expected United to finally sell the winger this summer instead of letting him walk for free in a years time.
Manchester United winger Nani has ended speculation about his future by signing a new five-year contract with the Old Trafford club.
Nani signed for Manchester United in May 2007, and helped the club win four Premier League titles, two League Cups, a FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Champions League in his six seasons at Old Trafford.

Nani was entering the final year of his contract and as such was garnering attention from clubs interested in luring the player away from Old Trafford.
Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain are reportedly looking to improve their flank options this summer, and have been linked to Manchester United's Nani after missing out on Gareth Bale.

The legendary Scot has finally called it a day from Football management though his ideals, mantra and inspiration will remain ingrained forever in this iconic club.
David Moyes spoke out following Manchester United's 1-1 draw at the Friends Arena in Stockholm against Swedish sideAIK Fotboll to reveal that midfielder Nani and defender Jonny Evans had picked up injuries throughout the course of the match. It appears that both injuries are minor and each player was taken off more as a precaution with the beginning of the Premier League season less than two weeks away and United set to take on Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield this Sunday at Wembley Stadium.
Manchester United winger Nani was subbed off moments ago for the Red Devils in their friendly match against Swedish side AIK. It's not clear why the Portuguese winger was dragged off, as there were no visual indications that he picked up an injury. The substitution came in the 29th minute, suggesting that the player may have suffered a knock off the ball.
Three key issues David Moyes must solve immediately - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Premier League champions Manchester United might have won the Premiership last season at a canter but there's a lot of work still needs to be done in order to roll their juggernaut for new manager David Moyes before the transfer window slams shut.
Manchester United striker Nani has publicly stated his wishes for the upcoming campaign after appearing in the club's preseason friendly against Crewe Alexandria, stating that he aims to win the league again and improve on a personal level. The Portuguese winger fell out of favor with the retired Sir Alex Ferguson last season, but hopes to get back in the club's starting eleven under new boss David Moyes.
A double from Nani helped Manchester United record a fine 2-0 pre-season win over Crewe Alexandra. The Portuguese winger has been frozen out of the first XI picture in recent seasons after falling down the pecking order but was in fine form as his brace helped United to an easy 2-0 win over Crewe Alexandra [.
Fans who snapped up early tickets for last night's match between a Manchester United XI and Crewe might not have held out much hope for seeing star names since the first-team squad was in Hong Kong finishing its pre-season tour. As it happened, Nemanja Vidic, Antonio Valencia and Nani were all returning from injury and [.
According toMonaco sporting director Vadim Vasilyev, Premier League giants Manchester United have offered star winger Nani to the Ligue 1 side, and the club has not ruled out making a bid for the player says Sky Sports. Nani's future with the club has been up in the air since the arrival of David Moyes at Old Trafford, and the player could move to the rich French club sometime this summer after the Premier League side offered the player to Monaco.
Monaco manager Claudio Ranieri has ruled out a move for out-of-favor Manchester United winger Nani, according to Goal.com.
The Portuguese international has struggled to find his form with the Red Devils recently, and with Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia, Ryan Giggs, and new signing Wilfried Zaha all competing for the same role, many had speculated that Nani's future at United was uncertain, with Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain, and Zenit St.
English newspaper The Daily Mail is reporting that Manchester United could be on the verge of handing Portuguese winger Nani a new contract. According to the report, new manager David Moyes is ready to give the former Sporting Lisbon youth product another chance at Old Trafford after the winger fell out of favor under Sir Alex Ferguson.
As the Moyes regime begins to take shape, it is a time for United fans to reminisce and remember the good times. Now, we all know the title race isn't over and a new manager needs time to settle, but the retirement of Fergie himself was the final stage of the clubs transition; one that has seen the club regress.
Nani has been a player that has split opinion for some time which meant there were mixed responses to news that he had agreed a new five-year-deal with the club. Not long ago, it appeared as though Nani would certainly be leaving the club and had Sir Alex Ferguson remained as manager, I imagine the Portuguese winger would have gone.
The Arsenal midfield is a much more complicated situation. Last year we have used two players, Arteta and Ramsey in a more defensive position to be able to patch together our winning run at the end of the season. What that creates is a lack of an extra creative attacking player.
It was the only finish to the season Arsenal fans could hope for. Having been told that Arsene Wenger had money to spend, but with the January transfer window not offering up the right players, the Gunners snaffled fourth place, the key to the promised land of the top bracket player. The club could offer [.
