Agree with one of the posters above. I thnk Ando did very well and lately, i have been impressed with his improvement and contribution. did you guys notice how the game changed when he came off? it didn't change for the better. Alot has been said about Obertan but maybe i can add a word or two, and that's just my honest opinion. This kid has got some real talent. He seem to play well on the left wing and his pace is something we don't have on that side of the wing. We have? Giggs, who at the moment is getting old. Firt half he made some decent runs and that shot was unmistakable one of his best contribution.Our game changed completely when Ando got off, when the Da silva brothers got off as well. We wouldn't have complained during the first half would we? No goals, but the youngsters did a great job. I think Obby is one of the players that has some Nani like attributes, can frustrate you a minute or two, but then produce one of those brilliant moments. A lot has been said to others who also left withought getting second chances and look how they've been doing at other clubs. Just to mention a few, who i still enjoy watching them play. Forlan, Richardson,Eagles etc. They may not be great where they are, but they are a talent that we do miss right now. That's my humble opinion. Mid field is our major problem and this is the area Fergie needs to address. If Mid is dead, the effect spreads all around the other positions too. Carrick, in my opinion was the weakest link in the midfield, and before we blame Obby and Bebe, the team did not balance well as a result of the substitution. As for Bebe, i can't really say much. He IS still very raw and it looks that he's going to take long to adapt to ELP environment especially that he doesn't really get a lot of first team exposure. by the way, isn't he a striker? or a supporting? Could be he's not position where he should. I didn't see the pace that i say the first few games he played so if he's been doing well in the reserves (which i don't get to see a lot), judging him from this one game, where in my opinion a lot of people were poor, including big names Rooney and Carrick is a little bit unfair. Everybody was poor in the second half.
This isnt just one game for Obertan, this is about a season and a half.
Yes he is quick. Very quick infact. But he simply cant play football! If we want someone because they are quick, we may aswell head to the British Athletics Centre and start signing up all the 100m sprinters, because they would probably be better than that clown.

I appreciate your comment Psyco. The only thing that i said in summary is that any good player needs lots of play time to really prove his worth. Any good player can flop,despite daily play time so what about Obby. How many games has he started? or how many has he played,let alone starting? 15 appearances this season in total and 7 of them as subs in my opinion isn't enough to really write this lad off. What am trying to say is lots of us seem to forget that the whole team was crap on that night, hence my mention of Rooney as an example. Now compare his overall season involvement and that of Carrick for example. And yes, i will keep on pointing at Carrick because personally i think the mid field, after the sub of Anderson (who a lot of people thrush him) got completelt overrun. Infact, as optimistic as i am for the game tonight, my worry is again in the middle of the park.I just hope we pull this one away from home.
