Q: What are your opinions on your manager?

A: José needs to be patient with his players this season, and continue to address the weaker areas in the squad by bringing in new, quality players. I'd also like to see him start Juan Mata more, as I don't think he's very effective when coming off the bench. We're playing well though, and a lot of credit goes to Jose for that. 

Q: Who is your favourite current player?

A: Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera

Q: Who is your favourite ever player?

A: Herrera
