Carrick Accepts Blame

The opening few minutes of the Wednesday fixture, against Southampton, were pure comical farce.

The manner in which Southampton, through Jay Rodriguez, opened the scoring, made it easier to laugh than cry.

The moment Michael Carrick hit that woeful back-pass you knew David de Gea was in trouble. Unfortunately, the manner in which De Gea tried to rescue the situation only worsened matters.

However, Michael Carrick has done the decent thing and stood up and accepted the blame for the incident, commenting to the media,

"It`s my fault. As it popped up, I tried to flick it back to David, but I didn`t get enough on it. I take the blame."

Very noble of you squire!

Wish half the team that put De Gea in this situations would own up to their mistakes like Carrick has. Poor sod has been the scapegoat for others mistakes for too long.

Have to agree de Gea should have dealt with it better but should never have been in that situation in the first place.
