Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread
Half time, 2-1. The positive... getting one goal. The negative... getting one goal and conceding two. Urgh.
The only players that can leave with some dignity from their performance is Rafael, Kagawa (for the last 10-15 minutes), Rooney and Chicharito. Van Persie has been okay also. Other than that, we've been very slow, sluggish and sloppy. The 3 S's I always seem to repeat time and time again during a United match this season. Our home form has completely dipped over the past 12 months. 2 seasons ago, it was a fortress but now, anyone can leave with something.
I know there are still 45 minutes left but still, what a disappointment. Why are we doing this? Starting so slow, conceding stupid goals from abysmal defending and then realising we have to suddenly play better. It's getting repetitive and ridiculous and needs to stop. Otherwise, we're completely fucked when we travel to Stamford Bridge.
I can see Kagawa coming off at some point with Nani or Young coming on. The formation needs to change also. We're at home so why utilize the diamond formation? Just go with our width, which is far more dangerous.
