Yeah, very laboured performance, we made hard work of that. Terrific play by Welbeck for the second goal though -- he made it and finished it nicely. I'm telling you I think I'd start him over Hernandez based on current form.

Shocking, but did the job
The defence is lacking confidence thanks to injuries and tinkering, and they're not helped by a midfield that doesn't press
We've definitely hit a rut post-being ace, so long as we keep winning we'll be reet
woeful display when you see the quality of those in red shirts compared to the working men of norwich
fucking grow a pair of balls collectively before the scouse game otherwise it is going to be a long hard autumn
no balance in this side. At this rate the scouse will fuck us up.tbf
The return of Vida and Cleverly will give us an injection of energy and bollocks. Would be nice to have the twins back too. I don't know about Evra though, he's showing no sign of returning to his best.
2-0 thank feck for that, lucky?, play bad and win, good.MANCHESTER IS MY HEAVEN- SIR MATT BUSBY
no value in improving our midfield apparently.LKHM
I used four different streams yesterday, but they were all crap - kept going into stop-start mode, so, later, I downloaded the match and watched it again. I need to add Nani and Rooney to the list of players whose passing was killing United's attack, but there is really no need to single people out in this match; very few of United's players played well. Once again, they were sluggish and sloppy, and, this time, also very naive in their tactics.
For only the second time this season, United were facing a side that did not attack in numbers, but United "counterattacked" in exactly the same way as they have been doing, and, until they finally scored from a corner, all of their offensive efforts died as players ran into cul-de-sacs or had their passes and crosses intercepted or cut out by a well organized defense which always seemed to have at least nine men behind the ball. Rather than be in too much of a hurry to score, United should have emulated Barcelona and retained possession, moving the ball quickly back and forth from one flank to the other until an exploitable gap appeared.
On the plus side, while only Arsenal could compete with United for the number of games missed by their first team through injury, United remain unbeaten and on top of the table.
