He was our best defender and we kept a clean sheet. He had a good performance. Certainly better than the impending doom most were predicting of him.

We were better on the day, I don't see how that can be argued. Liverpool were dictating things for the majority of the game, but it's worth noting that we actually had more possession up until we took the lead. And obviously once we took the lead, we were happy to drop deeper and look for counter attacks and let Liverpool be the more proactive of the sides while we become more reactive.

Verm was your best defender by a long way.

Not saying you weren't better. I said you weren't dominant.

oh and you guys had less possession when you took the lead, after the goal you guys settled in and played well.

What a disappointing first half from United. You'd think after the last two games where we conceded stupid goals that Ferguson would drive that into the players and demand a cleansheet. Nope, we concede yet another stupid goal where Rafael was the only defender marking Lambert. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Our midfield have been non-existent; Cleverley has been poor, Carrick has given the ball away countless times and Kagawa has been handled with ease. RVP has held the ball well but done nothing except score a good equalising goal. Welbeck has been so uncomfortable on that left wing and Valencia got more involved towards the end of the first half.

I'd bring Scholes and Nani on at some point in the second half. We need to stop playing such slow tempo football as Southampton are picking off our predictable passes with ease. The pressure they've applied to our midfield and the way they've dominated the midfield has been impressive to watch.

We play the worst football. The worst.

We dropped/sold Berbatov because he's too slow for our style of play? A team of corpses could play at a higher tempo than this.

Kagawa has been really poor, as have Cleverley/Carrick. You can really see there's no familiarity with the 3, I'd bring Scholes on to maybe settle things down, it's a clusterfuck of fuckery right now. Valencia and RVP bailed us out with some great play. Welbeck looks lost.

Verm was our worst defender. Got caught of out position loads of times. made a poor clearance or two. Sure he makes some nice blocks, but the positives don't outweigh the negatives.

Jenkinson says hello. Was fine when Raheem was running at him but he was dire with the ball at his feet and almost gifted some opportunities for Borini in the first half. Was out of position a few times in the first half as well.

I thought Verm was good.

I am damn excited about three clean sheets against three clubs who should challenge for Europa league spots. Two on the road, to boot.

Awesome. Arteta is a class defensive mid. Fuck Song. We don't need you!

Mertesacker has a better game than Vermerlean?

No.

Typical uncreative away performance from United. Rafael is still a liability at RB.

The "when he/we want(s)" chants are doing my head in at every match now too.
