Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens
Meh. He's got a point about Newcastle harassing the ref as well on Wednesday. Don't really see the difference in what Fergie did with what every Newcastle player and Pardew did too. 2 wrongs don't make a right but that sort of harassing happens all the time and rarely gets flagged up until a top manager does it.
Foreshadowed, Buttner wasn't all that good vs Wigan. Really rash defensively but that got overlooked because of his attacking play. Chelsea he was horrendous and vs Braga he was at fault for going missing on 2 goals. There's no way he's a step up on Fabio so him going out on loan was odd, especially as he probably would have got as much game time for Utd as he has at QPR. Hopefully plays him more and gets him that experience
Lewandowski for anything less than £20m is a mighty big steal. We don't need him because we've already got 2 of the best goalscorers going in RVP and Hernandez but he's one hell of a goalscorer.
Kagawa will be a huge boost when he's back. RVP/Hernandez deserve a good run of games together up front so I'd be fine with starting him out wide and coming inwards. Hopefully Young and Jones/Rafael are available to come in on Saturday and obviously Cleverly needs to replace Scholes.
