Fucking hell, that missed penalty better not bit us in the ass. Arsenal can't play any worse and it will spur them on. COME ON UNITED!!!
Been a good day after all that. :)
Half arsed performance that happened to be too much for arsenal. We need to be better than this...i'll take the points tho.
Should have put 8 past them like last season really.
Missed most of the game. Nice to be top of the table though. Thought RVP did the right thing by not celebrating the goal.
Didnt really appreciated RVP till now, he is genuine world class, brings so much than just goals and im glad wazza has accepted the deeper position.
That was a weird match
Very weird, we were so poor and their pen wasnt a pen, but im glad we won the group and smalling got 90mins. Best young english CB.
Not really happy with wazza playing so deep, he is almost a DMC now, Im sure he isnt neither but that kinda sums up CM if carrick/Clevz isnt playing. But no doubt RVP HAS to play up top with Wazza just behind.
:lol: Well done whoever made that. Made me laugh.
Shouldnt paper over the cracks, pleased we won, but we just cant defend. Scholes shouldnt of started either. Smalling did OK for his 2nd game in 4 days after 6 months out.
Lil pea is just the one. he has also rounded up his game to become more than just a poacher.
RVP is just sex
Wazza was AWFUL.
Young shouldn't play. He has been god aweful even after having 3 games under his belt.
About Scholes, he is the perfect guy to bring on when we are coasting 3-0 at 70th minute to keep possession and spray the balls around a bit on the wings for the occasional conter attacks. He looked very rusty today and invariably so. We can't just use an old guy once in a month and expect him turn in a performance next to Carrick of all possible mid-fielders. Cleverley didn't play in the mid-week and was quite good along side Carrick against Arsenal, thus it confuses me as to why he didn't start.
Hopefully, we will have a Ando + Cleverley mid-field soon.
Scholes and Carrick shouldn't start together.
It's obvious, isn't it? Or at least it should be.
Scholes + Carrick = no pace, little mobility and plenty of time for the opposition to flood back and reorganise their defensive shape.
Also, Carrick almost always ends up playing far deeper than he should, almost as if he's deferring to Scholes at every opportunity. Or worse, he just flits between 10 yards either side of the half way line to little discernible effect.
Scholes is still an asset but more as someone to turn to when you're looking to close out a game.
I agree Young should never be first choice. To be fair though, he's only playing his fourth game of the season. The problem is that with Nani almost certainly a goner in January, there aren't many options. Maybe Kagawa?
Suprised both teams conceded for the Chelsea Liverpool game. They're both usually good at defending racists. :lol:
Made me laugh anyway.
Missed the game yesterday but saw some highlights. What in the world was Smalling about in the challenge for their first goal? He has to be stronger in those challenges, I know he was up against a big guy with a lot of pace but still. Rio or especially, Vidic, wouldn't let themselves be taken out in such a challenge.
Also, it's great to be able to turn games around like we can. But to have to do it game after game isn't good. It'll affect our physic later on in the season. SAF must find a way to get the players to perform from the first second until the last if we're going to have a successful season.
I feel we have the ingredients to win both the league and the CL if we can mix them right.
Im not gonna be to harsh on smalling, 6 months out and 2nd game in 4 days, plus he did fine after that and benetke is a beast and their best player,
The question is will we be able to hold onto Hernandez? He seems happy enough, if another big team comes in do you think he will stay?
Lil pea aint going nowhere. im 100% sure of that. He has forced himself into the starting 11 now. Welbz needs to be worried
One of the great goals. Stunner
Am i the only one who didnt think it was that good of a goal? I personally thought that his 2nd one was his best.
As for Joe Hart, why does no one mention that he is also able of having a mare, but if DDG has one, the press are ALL over him
Why oh why fergie. legend yes, but giggs shouldnt be starting games like this, we have ando, clevz and fletch ffs
Watched the game, not one player performed.....my heart sank when giggs and scholes ended up playing when we have ando and clevz on the bench. worst culprits were the wingers............
United look really rigid when Scholes and Giggs play in CM together. I think you're missing Kagawa how City missed Silva.
