Re: Danny Rose > Rafa Benitez - In every way possible
United have been terrible first half, we look so disjointed in midfield and lack any composure or creativity in attack. Van Persie has been anonymous, Rooney looks rusty and keeps giving the ball away, Giggs has been awful in central midfield as predicted, Young has been decent and Welbeck has worked hard. Evra is all over the place defensively, all the danger is coming down his side and he's started doing that jogging back when we lose the ball routine - 20 minutes into the match already! Ridiculous!
Rafael has been hit and miss, started well, then had a bad spell where he kept giving the ball away but he's done a good job keeping the pressure on Silva and Nasri and has done his defensive duties well. He's having to do all the attack down the right himself as Welbeck keeps cutting inside. Ferdinand and Jones have been rocks at the back and Carrick is having an alright game. Still, they could be doing A LOT better out there, they don't look motivated whatsoever and are playing like they know the league is wrapped up. That's fine but there's still a lot on the line; it's a Manchester derby, the record points tally, claiming an 18 point gap... show some urgency!
Get Giggs off, bring on Cleverley as City have dominated. Barry and Toure are running the show and Silva is finding all pockets of space. I'd also get Rooney off at some point if this continues, been such a huge disappointment this season but usually turns up against City. Today so far, hasn't been that day. Get Chicharito on at some point.
