id say fulham deserved to win especially as 1 of your goals was an own goal & even more so because of the clear tug by vidic.
the ref bottled giving a pen against utd but was quick to give it for them.
i thought u looked better for the first 20mins but then fulham took over.
i dont expect utd to take their foot off the pedal at 1-0 but thats what it seemed like u did.
1 utd player who does worry me is evans. when he 1st came on the scene he looked really solid & confident.
but since early last yr he has suddently looked very shaky & unconfident.
he still seems to be playing with a lack of confidence & conviction. i highly rate him which is why im so suprised about his long dip in form.
im trying to think when this lack of confidence started & the away game to milan springs to mind. the game where they had about 5 chances in the 1st 20mins & evans was all over the place. i remember fergie on the sidelines screaming, shouting & laying into evans who looked a hurt player from that moment on.
maybe im wrong & have looked way too deeply into his form etc
I don't think Evans looks like he's lacking from confidence, but he has room for improvement. His concentration wavers from time to time, but I think he's still been pretty solid. He won't keep Ferdinand out of the team when he returns though.
I think defensively, it was from the wings that let us down. Park in particular in the first half was drifting far too infield, which left big gaps on the flanks for Fulham to counter.
