Manchester United fan' launches X-rated rant about Radamel Falcao

Manchester United supporters did not hold back in their stinging criticism of Radamel Falcao after the Colombian striker produced another infuriatingly poor performance against Preston North End in the FA Cup last night.

The 29-year-old took the brunt of the fans' collective frustration as Louis van Gaal's side struggled for long periods to break down their League One opposition, who held their own for the first hour at Deepdale.

The Red Devils eventually ran out 3-1 winners and set up a quarter-final clash against current holders Arsenal at Old Trafford. But, despite progressing to the next round Falcao still found himself condemned by one particularly irate spectator, who remains unconvinced about the team's playing style.

"First half absolutely s***," he evaluated angrily in a FullTimeDEVILS interview. "Shocking, weren't it? But, it's no f****** different is it? Every week like you keep saying - every f****** week it's the same old s***.

"[Marouane] Fellaini's our f****** best player - that's how bad it is! Falcao has a first touch like a f****** car bonnet. It just doesn't stick to him. It's like pinging off him everywhere. It's just absolutely s*** init?"

The furious fan is not alone in his vexed view of the AS Monaco loanee, who has been lambasted for his frequently lethargic displays since joining Manchester United on a temporary deal in the summer.

Based on what he's delivered so far - a paltry return of four goals in 21 appearances in all competitions - Van Gaal would be foolish to fork out the £43 million that's required to make his move permanent at the end of the campaign.

It's a dreadful return for any centre-forward, let alone one that used to be regarded as among the most prolific on the planet, and that's before you take into consideration the whopping weekly wage that Falcao is earning at the Theatre of Dreams.

Yes, there was an element of risk taking someone that had only just recovered from a serious anterior cruciate ligament injury, but nobody could've predicted how badly the South American would struggle in England.

With an hour on the clock in last night's match Van Gaal decided he had seen enough, and hauled the much-maligned marksman off in place of fit-again winger Ashley Young, who made an immediate impact after his introduction to make matters even worse for Falcao.

Ander Herrera grabbed the equaliser and Marouane Fellaini put the visitors in front following a close-range finish, before Wayne Rooney converted a late penalty to put the tie to bed.

Looking ahead to the last eight match against the Gunners, the interviewed Manchester United fan remained confident of beating Arsene Wenger's side to advance to the semi-finals even if he hasn't been happy with the football on show this season.

"No I think we'll beat Arsenal," he concluded. "We always beat Arsenal at home don't we. So, I think we'll get through."
