Red Devils Fume: Fans Demand Antony Axe After West Ham Woes

Manchester United's festive cheer evaporated into thin air after a dismal 2-0 defeat at West Ham, and the heat is squarely on Antony. The £85 million summer signing endured a torrid afternoon, failing to contribute meaningfully and drawing the ire of the Red Devils faithful.

Antony's struggles are becoming a familiar refrain. His barren run stretches to 27 games across all competitions, with a solitary assist his only meager offering. This, coupled with a string of underwhelming performances, has fans fuming and demanding action.

The RedCafe forum, a hotbed of United opinion, is ablaze with discontent. "Lay" laments, "We used to moan at Antonio Valencia, but Valencia was 10 times the player Antony is." "Marwood" echoes the sentiment, stating, "Antony needs to offer something, even if his 'strength' is near the box. When he's not good at that either, it's a big problem."

The comparisons to former wingers like Dan James sting for Antony's supporters. "Seaside Aggro" questions, "What's his level compared to Dan James? I'd say James was more effective, if not as good at spinning around." The sentiment is echoed by "TMDaines" who declares, "Antony lacks the fundamentals for this level. He's miles off. The damning thing is, he just isn't good enough."

The hefty price tag adds fuel to the fire. "Abraxas" fumes, "This was an incredibly poor deal. When you see him play, it's hard to see what they were thinking. No current ability, no real potential." "Castia" joins the chorus of disapproval, calling Antony "easily our worst ever signing. He's as average as it gets. If you didn't know the fee, you'd put him in the same bracket as James and Elanga."

Manager Erik ten Hag faces a delicate dilemma. Does he persist with Antony in the hope of sparking a revival, or heed the growing calls for his demotion? One thing's certain, the pressure is mounting, and Antony's future at Old Trafford hangs in the balance.
