Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens
Never get tired of Van Persie saving our bacon. Incredible player. The touch for the goal was out of this world. Amazing ball from Giggs too. Been loving Giggs' revival the past few games. Utd fans on here are awfully quick to jump on his back when he's played in the middle for some reason and gets outpaced by kids literally half his age but don't mention his recent form. Made a big difference going forward down the left coming on against Swansea and today and was a big threat against Newcastle too.
Thought a draw was fair. We can't play well for 90 minutes still. Started off well but 2nd half was dire bar the moment of quality at the end. Cleverly's goal was class. Thought he has a great game running the game in midfield. First half at least anyway. Thought Welbeck looked good too. Guy always puts a shift in. Shame he's down the pecking order right now. Kagawa with another shit away day performance. Doesn't look like a natural fit in physical away games without time on the ball. He's a talent so he'll get there. He doesn't really fit in the team though unless we play 4-2-3-1 but that rules out playing Hernandez with Van Persie. Buttner was unimpressive. Just isn't Utd talent or even close. These are all games Fabio could be playing and developing in. Rafael continues to shine. Evans too. Vidic just needs games. Smalling really isn't a natural fit at RB, especially going forward. Replay is annoying in between Liverpool and Spurs but we should progress now.
Brighton winning really aint an upset, especially against the team Newcastle sent out. Caught the last 15 or so minutes and Brighton were a joy to watch passing the ball around. Granted, extra player and weak deflated opposition. Can see them becoming a fixture in the league once they get promoted. Playing a strong team and getting a result would have been great for the confidence but I guess I get why they just passed on the Cup this season with injuries and their league position.
Ba's gonna be a goal machine at Chelsea with their service if he plays regularly. Only concern maybe would be not even balls over the top to him but didn't seem to matter today.
