PLAYERS: Federico Macheda


After Manchester United's 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace, all of the part-timing fans have flexed their Twitter muscles by listing players who don't belong at the club - and it's getting old quick.

Macheda struggled to impress against Palace Without hesitation, these simpletons listed Federico Macheda as public enemy No. 1, as he joined the likes of Darron Gibson and Jonny Evans, as the younger players who aren't fit to wear the famous Red shirt.

The facts that nobody cares to consider is that some of these players play once every month - with a couple of them making their first appearance of the season, which just gives those certain fans a reason to complain.

There is not one player that can honestly say that they played well against Palace, so there's no reason other than pure stupidity and hatred that someone blames one player for that loss. Macheda didn't play well, but neither did the 10 others, which is certainly disappointing, but the type of backlash that they are getting is something that shouldn't be accepted by the rest of the supporters.

Critiquing a players performance isn't ever a bad thing, because it enables them to know what went wrong and what they could do the next time. But when someone criticizes them by calling them useless or the club should sell them with no factual basis is just damning their mindless argument and reputation as a fan of the club.

What people don't take into effect is that players are human beings with a gift of being able to play the sport we all love at a higher level. Macheda for example came to the forefront at just 17-years old and won United the title with his last minute winner, but now, three years on, he's consider as a flop who never will fulfill his potential.

Ask yourself this, has Macheda ever done or said anything wrong during his time at United? Absolutely not, if anything he's more appreciative of being a player at this club - and he said that, himself, after his failed loan spell back to Italy last season.

People fail to realize that players, especially young players, don't tend to act the way he does. He didn't have to, but Kiko stood up to him not playing well and said sorry the fans. His tweet read, "I feel bad for all our fans! That wasn't a man u performance! Sorry lads! I understand your pain!!!"

The fact of the matter is, the majority of Manchester United supporters would love it if those in the minority who constantly criticized our players would go and support another club - if that's you - you know what to do!
