Carrick Shocked!

Carrick Shocked!

Michael Carrick, drafted into our midfield on Tuesday evening, also has a few thoughts on what turned out to be a dramatic encounter with Basel.

Somewhat stunned, a bit like the rest of us, Carrick remarked in an interview with the media,

"It was a shock to find ourselves 3-2 down after being 2-0 up."

"We`ll take a draw but it feels a bit like a defeat. We`ve got no excuses - we threw it all away."

"It`s not like us at all. We said at half time it wasn`t over."

"We`ve given ourselves a lot of work to do but we are capable. It`s not the end of the world but it`s not ideal either."


Perhaps it`s time to put it down as one of those things and move on!

Not shocked really. We were exposed on numerous occasions during the first half and were luck to not have conceded 1 or 2 already, it was no surprise or shock to see Basel finally start finishing their chances and punishing us. The only shock was that despite the woeful defensive display the main culprits in Carrick, Ferdinand, Evra (more experienced heads who should know better) remained on the pitch.
