United - A Midfield Battle

United - A Midfield Battle

With a lack of clear-cut chances last night and with both defences on top, the match, at times, descended into something akin to a midfield battle.

At times it was far from pretty with both sides guilty of giving the ball away on too many occasions.

Michael Carrick, who probably didn`t have the best of games, summed up his version of how the night went, as follows,

"We were disappointed with the performance. We did not create many chances and did not play near our best."

"We defended pretty well as a unit but the attacking side needs to be better. We`ve an opportunity to put it right at Old Trafford."


Or as we could say, we live to fight another day but with Marseille having now gone over eight hours in the Champions League without conceding a goal, it looks very much like it will be another tight affair at Old Trafford in a fortnight.

I'm sorry Carrick but stop using the collective term "we" and begin using "I". You were woeful to say the least, at least Gibson and Fletcher tried creating forward movement whilst you were happy to go sideways and backwards, you were even barely involved with the defensive part either. Heck, even O'Shea and Evra attacked more than you and they're fullbacks! Whilst you're a good squad player you're no longer first team standard and perhaps should be sold on. You've had a good career with us and now Fergie should let you go before the fans begin to lose respect for you as I suspect many already have or alternatively perform a miraculous recovery and turn your performances around.

Carrick you are *****, stop talking about others when your game is really poor, time for you to go but who would want you and how much are we going to lose when you go I suspect you will end up at Newcastle next season, enjoy.
