Sir Alex Ferguson‘s reaction at full time after Manchester United’s 1-0 loss against West Bromwich Albion summed fans’ feelings up perfectly.
Glum faced and stony eyed, Fergie was almost visibly angry at the football he’d just watch and so he should be.
We should have shown fight against West Brom with ten men and 1-0 down but instead we rolled over like a puppy and let Darren Fletcher scratch our bellies.
We feel the same way Fergie!pic.twitter.com/p0XV2pJvyC

It was almost as if the players can’t get up for playing your West Brom’s or your Watford’s and only turn up in important games like Arsenal or a knock-out European tie? Our record against teams in the lower half of the table is truly diabolical.
That leaves United with only five wins in our last 14 Premier League games and questions will once again surface asking why in the world van Gaal is still in a job.
