Welbeck Rues Lapses!

Welbeck Rues Lapses!

As the inquest into how we let a comfortable two-goal lead slip against Basel continues, our two goal man, on the night, Danny Welbeck, has given the media a few thoughts on the aftermath.

Welbeck, who probably had several chances to get a first Champions League hat-trick commented on the defensive side of things, remarking to the media,

"We need to get back on the training pitch and put things right."

"Throwing away a two goal lead just isn`t like us."

"The lesson is not to be careless and to carry on playing the game the way we started because we threw it away."

"We need to get our defensive mentality right."

"It`s not like Manchester United to give away three goals at home, so you could say it`s a wake-up call. There was some careless defending creeping in so we need to correct that."


Some would say it`s something that has been on the cards. In the Premier League games against Arsenal and Chelsea we were far from water-tight and could have shipped four goals in each game.

Obviously, that`ll be something Sir Alex Ferguson and his coaches are well aware of and will be hoping to apply some sort of corrective action as Norwich City arrive at Old Trafford this Saturday.

But, despite the heartache the shipping of those three goals caused, Danny is quick to point out that such things can happen in the Champions League, further rremarking,

"It`s the Champions League for a reason and everyone who has qualified are difficult opponents."

"You have to give it your all every game."

"People were saying it looked an easy group but we knew no match would be easy. With it being Manchester United, other teams would be stepping up their game, which Basel showed here."

They did really well so full credit to them."

"We made life hard for ourselves and you can`t afford to do that in the Champions League."


Indeed you can`t as there are far better teams than Basel lurking around the corner.

But referring to his personal performance and his first Champions League goals, a brace, Danny commented,

"It`s good to get goals, but I`m not happy if the team isn`t winning - they don`t mean as much. It`s a team game and I`m just disappointed with the result."

Despite having only accumulated two points from two games, our safe passage from this group shouldn`t be a problem, although the defensive carnage we`re currently witnessing needs to be sorted out by the time we commence the knockout stages.
