That would certainly give him some breathing space. Transitional season, giving the young players a chance, 'you have to expect that sometimes there will be bad results, they're young and they're learning every game'. As opposed to 'he's Young and he's never getting better but I'm playing him anyway'. I'd think even Man U fans would give him a chance if he packed the team with exciting prospects and gave them game time.
Oh aye, I like Kagawa generally but his sudden messianic status is rather bewildering.
I watched the Palace game and was amazed at just how slow the ball moved and how genuinely rubbish Young and Valencia where. It's weird when you consider there are dynamic, direct players like Nani and Zaha just sat there.
I'm sympathetic to the idea of just biting the bullet and throwing janujaz, zaha, kagawa etc at the pitch and seeing what happens.
Could use a central defender though, someone with experience and presence. You'd need him even if you wanted to experiment with 4-3-3 or 4-2-4 or 4-1-3-2 or whatever - although there's no way Cleverley is a '1'
