Manchester United Message Board
Rubbish performance. Defending was awful, but it wasn't the makeshift central pairing that was the problem. Yet again for me it was central midfield and defending through the middle. Mereiles in particular was allowed the space to run through the middle with ease. Neither Carrick or Scholes tracked his runs once. Evra was too slow to get back after going forward a lot in the first half. Rafael lucky to stay on the pitch with his challenge at the end of the first half. Carragher lucky also with his challenge on Nani. What a disastrous header from him that led to the second also though. VDS should have done better with the freekick, that 3rd ended any unlikely chances of getting back into it. No striker will ever score an easier hattrick.
A fully deserved 3 points for Liverpool who were far more organised than we were and played far better. We were clueless.
Only positive to take from this weekend is Arsenals draw yesterday that keeps us ahead by the smallest of margins. Its anyones to win at the top now.
