Eat Some Humble Pie!

Eat Some Humble Pie!

Even though we`ve, almost certainly, hit the magic 19 mark when it comes to top-flight title triumphs, the accusations that United are not an attractive or efficient side as they have been in the past rankle.

Throughout the season, various pundits (probably too numerous to mention) have inferred that to be the case.

Our club captain, Nemanja Vidic, now that the 19 title is virtually assured, has hit back at those very critics, explaining,

"Compliments are not always good for you."

"Criticism can help a team. Back in early season there were people always trying to compare this team to other United teams."

"They were saying we didn`t have the individuals like we used to and that we weren`t as good."

"But you look at the names in this team and you think, 'How can they say that?` We have never been focused on what people have been saying about us, but you can still get benefits from it. It can be a positive."

"Sometimes criticism can help a side, it can drag you forward. You have to work harder to prove to your critics that anything they say is not true."

Or force feed them a huge slice of humble pie!

That's what I dont undertand, Vidic is spot on, when you look at the side how can they possibly say that? The defense is one of the best out there as is the width and strikerforce. As for 'individuals', football is a TEAM sport ffs!
