Rooney, Kagawa and Rafael were our weakest players on the night. Valencia was absolutely dogshit when he came on too, literally contributed nothing. As much shit as I give him, I'd love for us to be playing Nani over Valencia right now. Welbeck will definitely end up being a cult hero at United, he was superb last night. De Gea made several fantastic saves, the pick of them being the one from Coentrao in the first few minutes and the other one from him with his feet. Evans and Rio have both had great seasons and that continued here. Jones continuing his first half from Everton too. Fully expected to get battered in the possession stats but I'm encouraged by the amount of chances we got, RVP could have gotten a couple along with Giggs pissing about near the end when he would have been better off smashing it like it was Imogen Thomas.

Meant to say it in my first post after the game, but do the United lads on here think last night emphasised what Cleverley brings to the team? In the first half especially it felt like many a game at Anfield where the midfield and attack were so spread out we'd concede possession quickly because no-one was about for a simple pass. Cleverley constantly looking for the ball and making runs has meant in big away games this season that hasn't been as evident and it just occurred to me last night that the minute he was out of the team the midfield and attack looked more disjointed first half, although by the second half as the game became more open we improved in that area.

Jones was a tad wasteful at times on the ball, though he's young and energetic so that's expected. What impresses me most is he has that drive and hunger to win a ball back and redeem for a mistake. I remember in the second half he miscontrolled a ball on the halfway line, but then tracked back and won the ball of the Madrid player as they got near the 18 yard line. Reminds me of Cleverley in that both can give the ball away but always work hard off of the ball to atone for an error and give us a pressing advantage and workrate we've missed since Fletcher hit his peak a few seasons back.

Old Trafford hasn't been the fortress it was for so long in Europe recently, but I'd fancy United's chances against that Madrid defence.

I'd much rather have seen Cleverley out there based off his recent form, than Kagawa. Cleverley is a very CLEVER footballer (hehe) and whilst I don't think he'll be world class or anything like that, he's starting to show he belongs at a high level.

He still doesn't excel at any skill though haha. Like I said though, he's a smart footballer and works very hard, so that'll do.

Yeah he moves the ball quickly and shows a sign of confidence in making himself available for every ball. Just refreshing to see a bit of bite and graft in the midfield off the ball which we've been sorely lacking for a while. I appreciate Carrick's game is more suited to reading and intercepting instead of putting a foot in, but it can be a tad irritating sometimes to see him be light in the tackle and almost letting people glide past him for fear of putting a tackle in. Cleverley and Jones give us some bite and tenacity in fighting for every ball which can be so crucial in winning the midfield battle.

He may not become one of the great midfielders to have ever worn the shirt, but he looks to be likely to securing a regular position and who should amount to a very dependable, reliable and handy player.

I have always said he'll be the equivalent of Nicky Butt, in terms of capability to step in when needed whilst never quite being a Scholes/Keane.

Rafael's had a fantastic season, best RB in the Prem so far. Sure he had a crap first half, but that aside, he's been brilliant all season.

That seems like a fair assessment based on what we've seen so far. Good potential, handy player, brings a lot to the team, appears to link up well with Carrick and Anderson which presents versatility and always there to do a job for the team.

Any predictions for tonights Europa League games? Maybe the racists get beaten by Zenit? Will probably watch Newcastle vs Metalist Kharkiv. Watched a fair few Newcastle games over the past few weeks and have found them enjoyable.

Tottenham 1-0 Lyon. Lyon aren't in great form from what I've seen.
Zenit 2-1 Liverpool.
Sparta Prague 1-3 Chelsea.

You'd be better off skipping over comments like that. I rarely bother with people who don't have a clue what they're on about.

Which is probably why I never talk to you.
