Angel Di Maria once again played a cameo role as Manchester United sunk to their third defeat in a row against West Brom on Saturday.
Unfortunately, despite a few good runs and picking up good positions, the Argentine’s end product was about as bad as it’s ever been, each and every cross failing to find a United player.
He did have one good effort towards the end, finding space outside the box and forcing a top save from Boaz Myhill, but United supporters want to see more.
Fuck Off Di Maria's haters, he's just getting 15-20 mins play and what you can expect for him in that time.

I don't see the point of blaming Di Maria. He came in when WBA scored, got no time to settle and was pushed into attacking. He needs support

Starting to feel for Di Maria. Desperate stuff from him today. Was poor again but no reason to boo him. We're not supposed to be like that.

After costing the best part of £60m in the summer, Di Maria’s start to life at Old Trafford was a good as it could possibly have been, but he has failed to find the net in the league since October.
Despite a superb assist record, Di Maria has done little to justify a starting spot, but with the team desperately struggling to create meaningful chances, now might be the best time to allow him to pay some of his fee back.
