Sticking Plaster Philosophy!

Sticking Plaster Philosophy!

The defeat yesterday, at the hands of bottom of the table Blackburn Rovers wasn`t expected.

Instead of sitting on top of the pile we now fully expect to be trailing Manchester City again after they win today.

But, as he wakes up and finds that his 70th birthday has been and gone, it doesn`t appear that Sir Alex has wavered when it comes to what he might deem panic buys in the, now open, January transfer window.

Speaking after the defeat, Sir Alex Ferguson re-iterated his thoughts, commenting,

"Why should you put a sticking plaster on something? We`re quite happy with what we`ve got at the moment."

"Who is going to sell their best player in January? I don`t see it happening."

"I would like to get one or two out on loan, particularly the young strikers, but at the moment we don`t need to do anything."

Well that appears to be that, or does it?

We've had the injury crisis to the back 4 for 3 season running now. It's not a sticking plaster, we genuinely need to sort it out, 1 CB and the whole thing is a lot better. In the same manner, not only is our CM not good enough par 2 maybe 3 players but it is also completely injury struck. It just seems silly and negligent not to reinforce/strengthen the CM and CB position.

It was poor result today, especially after how we totally dominated Blackburn, we just werent sharp enough up front, and defensively it was a mess. De Gea didnt look too good for the last 2 goals, not saying he was completely at fault, but I think Lindegaard would have sorted it. But De Gea needs playing time, and he will probably need an entire season to level up to PL standard. I think you are right Famous, we should get some kind of defensive cover, Vidic is out and with Ferdinand it seems he is more injuried than not.. Hopefully Cleverly will be back soon, and Ando is almost there, but we could do with a great am/cm.

Thought I was watching a Carling cup game whem I saw the line up . Far too many players playing out of position . We would have done better with Carrick playing in goal for that corner .And has conceded through his legs again The keeper cost us a point at least and we would be clear at the top. Consolation though with the Sunderland result did make me smile .
