Hutton is useless
Jenas not up to it
Bale-Southampton did well getting rid of him
at least we know if we are to do anything to challenge the top 4 at any stage, we cannot afford to have players like this playing for our first team ..FACT ....
Harry said there was a lack of atmosphere, lets face it OT is quite quiet at times. im guessing that not many yids made the trip? Im not sure, but anyhow it could of contributed towards the teams lack of inspiration and appearance of a practice match.
Overall though I'm pleased to announce that and by public demand that Jenas is offically shit.

agree with sash 100%.
i think harrys attitude to the game seemed to rub off on our poor performance & lack of team spirit.
i know a lot of u including el tel thought we were the better team & man u werent that good. but to me it looked like man utd were just coasting, taking it easy & knowing they would win what ever.
man u were very sloppy & were their for the taking but we didnt take advantage.
do u really think of we played like that against man utds starting 11 we would win?
basically we lost to a man u fringe team who didnt play very well & coasted in 1st gear through out.
agreed that at least a young11 would have been more hungrier then the likes of jenas & bentley picking up there 50grand a wk for strolling round the pitch.
jenas,bentley & hutton have to go in jan.
He's signed until 2016, I don't think we need to worry about it for a bit.
Been following today's football on the BBC site, they started the day with a poll on who'd be champions/top 4/relegated - we were consistently in the top 4 predictions, but a fair few of them were citing us as second/biggest worry to man u/contenders for next year, and I'm fairly confident most of them weren't spurs fans.
I have my own thoughts on where we could finish, don't want to ut them into words yet in case of jinxing us, but it's nice to see that other teams see us as a threat. If they're even half right I don't see Bale going abroad for a while, the possibilities with us will be too tasty.
I only watched on TV - but can I just say in their (pseudo) defence...if we were that 'poor' then what did it make Utd? From what I saw (and maybe I was watching the wrong game...!), we totally outplayed Utd for the first half and for the first 15-20 minutes of the second. We just didn't score and they did.
The last 20 minutes seemed poor - it just seemed that by then they had given up on the idea that they could score.
John, im totally with SB on this one, its not just about losing the game Harry is right to want CL football as we all do, but its the manner in which we lost it, sure for the first 25 minutes we played reasonable but its time the big time Charlies started to be accountable to the fans we all make the effort to either watch Spurs on the box or go to the games which SB does and so do I, but i can assure you if Harry did not want to win this game ( I did )then do as Man Utd And The Gooners do put in players that are up and coming from the reserves or the academy, we our loaning most of the young talent out to pick up match experience which is fine, but to be honest its been plain for all to see that everytime the 3 clowns play they are garbage, Bentley, Jenas and Hutton are and have been totally usless everytime they play, i think Harry is under pressure to play these jokers just because of the fees that were paid, i promise you if you had been there last night the away supporters area was like a morgue, the only thing they could do was be loyal to ourselves, even though the full numbers were not there we totally sang our songs and i must say if i was a Man Utd fan i would have been embarassed as you could hear a pin drop, i have to say our fans are magnificent and deserve so much better than what we saw at Old Trafford, lets put the kids out and lose 4-0 and show fight they sure cannot do worse than messers Bentley, Jenas, Hutton and Keane.
Harry my friend its time to sharpen your sword.
if u actually read my posts i said i rate bale as a left winger, not a LB.
also the only diff between bales mistake & corlukas is that corluka would have just fouled him & hope we dont concede from the free kick.
if corluka so great im sure a top 4 team might want to buy him off us. hang on a minute, no one would touch him with a barge pole. even man city knew he wasnt up to it.
This was probably the last chance some of those mentioned had in proving their credentials to HR last night. With the January sales looming, the likes of Hutton, Bale, Bentley and Keane had one more shot at showing what they could do. I'll add Jenas to that lot and tell you exactly what they can all do.....FO!
Ive always been a Keane fan but perhaps his time has finally come and with the scouse debacle still fresh its possibly to much to expect any more from him. Time for a hungrier striker who wants to prove himself.
As for the rest...well they had their chance and were found wanting.
Shame we are out but a good performance and result against EFC should see us all right with the world again.
I know you were there, and the game looks different 'live', but my point was that Utd didn't look comfortable. The only time they looked ok was from the mid 60'th minute on - and by then we'd given up.
I don't think it's only me, as El Tel was also quite amazed that we were losing at half time. It just seems that this morning all the hype is how well Utd (and their 'kids') played - no..that isn't true - it makes good headlines, but that isn't the game I saw. We just couldn't get a goal.
What did Obertan do? Berbatov? Welbeck? A couple of shots from 20yds and they get two goals from midfield. That doesn't mean they played well at all.
31st Minute: United apply a rare bit of pressure
60th Minute: United have a rare forray into the Tottenham half
I know that's selective, but that's what I saw as well.
Anyway, the game is gone and we're out of the CC.
I just hope 'arry can get that belief into the team. To me that's the key. Once the team believes they can beat Utd or Chelsea or ... then I think a top 4 slot will follow. Until then, it's just a dream.
