Fans’ view: Should James Wilson or Radamel Falcao start against Tottenham Hotspur?

by Ben Topliss

Oh, the indignity. Radamel Falcao, once considered one of the world’s deadliest strikers, was made to play for Manchester United’s U21s against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday.

He could have no complaints having put in a number of ineffectual performances this season and he produced another for Man United’s second-string side.

Substituted on 71 minutes, the Colombian had no meaningful effect on the game.

It was a massive fall in grace for Falcao and, with this in mind, we asked our Twitter followers whether it is time to drop Falcao altogether in order to make space for James Wilson:

Supporters have been split down the middle when it comes to the subject of which striker to play. There is almost a confusion as to what to do with Falcao now.

On the one hand, Falcao’s time at Old Trafford looks to be at an end. On the other, Wilson is relatively unproven despite a number of good cameos this term. With United heading into a crucial run of fixtures as they bid to qualify for the Champions League, the team really cannot afford to have anything else than the very best.
