    We really aren't a very good team so far this season. Very average today. We'll do very well to win this.

    Edit: Thank $#@! for Van Persie. There can't be any doubt that he was well worth the money. Pulled us level again.

    Edit again: We are simpy horrendously poor. We're making Southhampton look like Barcelona. Two nearly identical goals, extremely poor goals to concede as well. I'm brutally honest if I tell you how staggered I am at the appalling lack of quality from our side. We are several levels below Europe's elite.

    Wow, Van Persie getting a hat trick to save the day!

    Fitting, perhaps, that on Fegie's 100th league game we win it with a late goal.

    Yeah. The performances this season has been unacceptable. We need a response next game.

    Might give BŁttner a debut, too. Not impressed with Evra.

    At home to Wigan next I think, would be a good time for him to make his debut.

    Aye. Wigan next.

    Love RVP's attitude in his Sky interview, more pissed about the penalty than pleased about the hat trick.

    We didn't deserve to win but RVP saved the day, even if his penality taking leaves something to be desired.

    Shakhtar are a quality side. They beat us season before last, their Brazilians may not be high profile but still top players. I was praying we wouldn't get them, think they'll beat Chelsea at home

    Right, win aside, that was ANOTHER awful performance from us.

    We had to rely on a 37 to change the the game.
    Evra is done.
    Wasnt rafas fault for the 1st goal, where was vida or rio?
    Why was a striker (Welbz) playing on the left when we have nani?
    Why wasnt CM properly addressed? we are liking a cheap $#@! through the middle of the pitch, so easily got at.
    Chico also made the difference when he came on.
    DDG shouldnt of been dropped, that was VERY harsh. I actually think he saved either of their headers!

    Tbh, i know rio/vida aint played together since basle and both are coming off injuries, but still, i expect better from them

    Where was ando? he wouldve got stuck in.

    Carrick seemed to forget that he was playing in CM, a lot a mis placed passes from him

    Didnt use Kagawa well. He had a poor game. Learning curve.

    Awful performance yesterday. At times in posession of the ball, Carrick looked like he was auditioning for a part in The Walking Dead. Rio looked like he was tweeting during the game, but the most shocking thing for me Mike Phelan.

    Isn't he the assistant manager at United? Someone needs to get the bloke a onesie, during the game he looked like a big tired old baby. He couldn't even be arsed to get up when RvP scored. And if a team reflects its manager/assistant manager, of late it is doing. Tired, sluggish and just plain old.

    And now Fergie has set a precedent for a player making one mistake. Will Silva and Evra to be dropped from the next game? Felt sorry for De Gea yesterday, bad enough to be dropped but for the manager to be so public about it, not good.

    On the bright side, Liverpool.

    De Gea will be back for the Wigan game. I have a feeling we might see Buttner make his debut too. If he has anything about him, he could be no. 1 LB by Christmas.

    Watched MoTD2 this morning. United back to their old tricks of turning games around, didn't anyone tell Fergie it's now called Manicni Time?

    Joking aside, RVP looks ruthless. Scholes ran the midfield when he came on which leads to one question...

    How can Fergie not invest in a quality CM when Scholes is 37 years old and he won't be around for many more years?

    United will struggle against any team who can out boss them in midfield this season. Everton did and you lost. Southampton did and you almost lost.

    Where do you find a CM that can immediately step in and take over from one of the best midfielders to ever play the game? I think that's the issue, Fergie said a few years ago he'd spend big to replace Giggs and Scholes but there's two, maybe three, midfielders in the world that can replace Scholes and Barcelona isn't selling.

    Replacing Scholes may end having to be, by necessity, a multi-man job. Seems very unlikely we'll ever be blessed with a CM of his quality again.

    There can be absolutely no excuses if you watch someone like Dembťlť move to Spurs for 15M. That's all I want to say on the subject.

    Its not even replacing scholes that is the issue, its the fact we get bullied in CM ALL THE $#@!ING TIME.

    Yet he seems to think we can just outscore everyone all the time.........................."shakes head"

    I'd bring in M'Villa to bring some truculence and belligerence to the midfield. He'd also be a good replacement for Fletcher right away or when needed if Fletch can come back to his top level.

    Think we have enough offensive talent in the MF with Clev and Kagawa to pass on players like Dembele.

    Buying a ready made replacement is now United's problem. If they invested in a CM a season or two ago like every United fan was crying out for then there wouldn't be this problem. You'd have a younger midfielder who has learned from one of the best for two seasons or so.

    Many quality midfielders have moved to other clubs and United haven't shown an interest in them.

    Spurs almost capturing Moutinho for £22m. United should go for him, he has everything it takes to be a top midfielder.

    Yaya Toure is the leagues best midfielder without a doubt. He cost £24m and that's proved to be a steal.

    United don't need a creative midfielder, we need a player who can boss the midfield and control the play. Basically, we need someone like Yaya Toure, he is City's most important player if you ask me. I think Cheik Tiote is good shout but he's a dirty bastard.

    I don't think anyone that's been on the market these last few years, except Modric, has what it takes to reach Scholes level.

    That was during the "no value" years.

    I think Fergie realises he will never replace Scholes and is kicking it down the road for the next bloke.
