United - The Inquest Thoughts of Sir Alex!

Having just witnessed the Premier League title head south for a minimum of twelve months, it was a rueful Sir Alex that faced the media.

Not retaining the title, for a record fourth time, saw the inevitable media inquest commence, Sir Alex, doing his best to hide the bitter disappointment he must have felt at failing to add another Premier League title to our record, batted a few dilemma`s around remarking,

"Did I always make the right team selection with the appropriate tactics? Do we have a strong enough squad."

"I have to weigh up whether to move into the transfer market, considering our own youth development and our players."

"It`s an assessment that has to be set against injuries, bad luck and the fact there is a harder competitive edge in the League these days."


I`d also add that probably a defining element was a lack of a quality strike partner for Wayne Rooney, in hindsight our greatest failing was not replacing Cristiano Ronaldo or Carlos Tevez adequately.

Do you disagree or agree?

"I`d also add that probably a defining element was a lack of a quality strike partner for Wayne Rooney, in hindsight our greatest failing was not replacing Cristiano Ronaldo or Carlos Tevez adequately" D-oh!

Berbatov is not a striker that will lead the line,we require a striker who will try to get behind the defences and atleast try to strike the ball.I've seen it on numerous occasions where he prefers to pass rather than strike in a good position,maybe its lack of confidence but I've not been impressed by him.

Anderson is another one who has failed to perform,he was the one who had to take over from Scholesy but he hasn't performed uptill now but seeing Nani it gives me hope as age is one thing that works in Andy's favour.

Our problem was entirely mental in most games (except the chelsea game where they were just better). We scored more this year than last, so it wasn't their goals that needed replacing. Its the names on the team sheet that provide a psychological blow to the opposition and a boost to us. Knowing that we had Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez meant we always felt capable of getting a goal. With Berba, Valencia and Rooney we only felt confident when rooney was available as the other two are goal shy. I think we've shot berbas confidence to nothing now, to the point where the fans, the manager, the team and even berba himself have no confidence in his ability to deliver goals. If we bring in a well known name or two to replace him, we might be able to re-introduce some of the fear into our opponents and boost our self belief.

More add to than replace I guess with respect to Berba, not so sure it's a financially viable option to sell. If we are going to be adopting the 4-5-1 for major games and Europe, we wouldn't want the big man up front, maybe some one who can play off Rooney or part of a front three? Definitely some one a lot more mobile than Berba!!
