Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens
Terrible statement to declare the title United's already. We've been as open at the back as Rush's mother and it's only a matter of time before half our team get slight knocks that keep them out for 3 months. Very entertaining season for us thus far though, I'd take 4-3's over 1-0's every day of the week.
Enjoy seeing Liverpool and City both lose on the same day, Scousers being on the end of a couple of 3-1's recently to teams they should perhaps be getting a result from - especially Villa. Unbelieveable Bentekkers from them though. Stoke continually doing well for such an average set of players, besides a couple, shows that hard work will do well.
Hernandez is our modern day Solskjaer. Rooney's injury will hopefully give him a kick up the arse after that Swansea game as despite him doing well up to that game, that was the shittest performance from a United player I can ever remember. Not sure if I'm exaggerating that but nothing else springs to mind.
I don't think De Gea is a liability at all, in fact I can only remember a couple of mistakes from him this season and unless I'm wrong none have led to goals. I may be wrong with that statement though. I'm not talking about shit like "oh he could have saved that" moreso "he should have saved it". Plus, I've always liked a lunatic of a keeper in regards to decisions for some odd reason, I might be the only person who rates Barthez as one of my favourite keepers. It's weird though as I don't think Evra has been that bad this season, Evans has been really good at times, Rafael has been good and yet our defence is one of the worst in the league (I'm sure there's only about 5 or 6 teams who have conceded more) - I think a lot of it comes from needed more protection from midfield. Carrick is very underrated in terms of what he brings to a team however I don't think he's ever going to pair up with anyone we've currently got, aside from maybe Fletcher or Jones, to offer the defence any proper help. Fergie has often said a ball winner isn't needed for the team anymore and in my opinion, and the opinion of our goal's against column being fucking horrific, he's completely wrong.
