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.
