Dominic Monaghan Writes About Man United Exiting the Champions League

Dominic-Monaghan-374x479You may or may not know that as a life-long football fan and Manchester United supporter, Dominic Monaghan is also a columnist for PasteMagazine. He recently had this to say:

I’m fine with Manchester United exiting the Champions League.

It was gonna happen one way or the other. We can’t contend with Barcelona, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid. Hell, we can’t beat Manchester city or Juventus, Paris Saint-German or Valencia on a good day either.

But sliding out of a group that we should have topped seems incredulous for Manchester United and this is the real problem.

How far we have slumped. That it’s even possible. It wasn’t really that long ago that when Madrid or Munich or Barcelona drew us they thought, “Oh Crivens, let’s concentrate”.

We are a ghost of the team we once were. (cont.)

Dominic Monaghan: Why Manchester United Must Keep Faith with Louis van Gaal

dommanOur favourite Paste Soccer columnist (and a lifelong Manchester United fan) Dominic Monaghan posted the following article today:

Let’s be honest: Manchester United are a very famous football team. An empire. A football team whose shirt can behaves as currency in foreign countries, and an icebreaker. They are a buzzword in football.

They are also in a sorrier state than I have seen in a long time.

Injury ridden. Low on confidence. Players forced to play out of position. Out of the Champions League and battling for fourth spot? This is Manchester United? After 20 years fighting to WIN the premier league and Champions League? I dread to think what stunning display our darling Cristiano Ronaldo could put on against us at the moment.

So why am I about to argue in favor of keeping faith with Louis van Gaal? Here’s why: ….. Read more HERE.

Dom writes about Rooney

hobbitfootballDominic has been a frequent football columnist for PasteMagazine, as well as a life-long fan of Manchester United.

In his latest addition, he talks about Wayne Rooney:

Wayne Rooney, captain of Manchester United and England, has been subject to hateful press throughout his career, now more than ever. As a Manchester United and England fan, I am baffled.

Though Rooney is by no means perfect, nor does he claim to be, it seems to be the case that a highly paid person is subject to anything the media can thrown at him, however hurtful or untruthful it may be. Many absolute lies are printed in newspapers.

As captain of England he shows pride in the honor, does his best with the team that is selected around him, supports the manager and works harder than most. Anyone claiming that Rooney is lazy should look at his statistics as a professional footballer. He is elite and has always been that way. You cannot run as fast or as far as him so stop it.
