re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (Winning at home is overrated anyways)
Half time and it has been pretty even between United/Newcastle. We've had 3 or 4 really good chances, which have been the best chances but Newcastle have really caused us problems on the set pieces. They could get a goal back but we have defended pretty solid thus far.
It's good to see Fletcher back, he's picking out some good passes and has helped the back four out well. Rooney's long balls have been brilliant. Welbeck has got more into the game as time has gone on, Hernandez is showing a lot of energy and making good runs but the end product hasn't been there yet.
The youngsters have looked good, especially Keane. I really like the look of him, looks very comfortable when on the ball and bringing it out from the back.
Cleverley has been decent but should have buried that chance. The goals will come for him and hopefully that miss won't affect his confidence as he's had a few golden opportunities to score this season and has messed them up. Anderson however, is Man of the Match thus far, always charging forward but comes back to the United half to retrieve the ball to start the attack. He's linked up well with Rooney, Cleverley and Welbeck and the goal towards the end was fantastic. Showed great strength.
Hopefully we start moving the ball a lot quicker and utilize our width more.
