Gotham City is in danger and Master Wayne is nowhere to be seen. As if the pro-longed absence of Commissioner Gordon was not enough, the departure of Batman has creating a sense of anarchy all around.
It has been more than a month now since Robin Van Persie last featured for United. Wayne Rooney joined his fellow striker on the sidelines and United have missed his services terribly in the last 5-6 matches.
Alongside the terrible patch of a large number of first team regulars including stalwarts like Michael Carrick, Nemanja Vidic, their absence has made life miserable for the Old Trafford giants.
United look a weary, worn-out side incapable of penetrating the defences without their star strike duo of even the end-of table rivals. Adding to that some unbelievable officiating by Premier League referees have left David Moyes bewildered and perhaps wondering what else on earth can go wrong for the Red Devils.
It would be unfair to attach the blame on Moyes but then it would also be unreasonable to acquit him of his responsibilities.
The majority of United supporters will continue to support the new manager as Sir Alex Ferguson demanded in his farewell speech. But the scars of these defeats will take long to heal. The rise of City and Chelsea, both under new managers as well, further aggravates the pain.
Time and again, Rooney and Van Persie have rescued United from tricky situations. With the below-par performances on the rise, United fans are desperately hoping for a quick return of their Master Wayne and Commissioner Gordon.
Time is running out fast and if that does not happen very soon, situation might soon be out of hands. The fact that Rooney almost single-handedly controlled the downfall speaks volumes about the ability, character and importance of.
United needs you Master Wayne! Come back soon!
