Victory Was Vital

Victory Was Vital

Some of the players proved their worth to the club, according to Sir Alex who spoke after the 3-0 drubbing of Everton.

United were not playing particularly well, and lack of concentration was apparent at times during the first half. Still, our second-string team managed to cruise to a comfortable victory but that required a moment of brilliance.

"We needed a breakthrough," admitted the boss. "James Beattie has got a fantastic spring on him, and Everton played on that. He was causing us a lot of bother.

"We started to get a bit of pattern to our play prior to the goal, but it wasn`t a fluid United display in the first half. Ronaldo`s goal just settled us down a bit. When you make a lot of changes you`re not going to get the same sort of flow we`ve had in previous weeks when the team has been playing together and been in good form.

"But, even though we made a few changes, I thought we`d be OK because there was a lot of athleticism and there were players playing to prove their worth to the club. And credit to those players today, they did well."
