    After that first half I can't believe how boring that second half was. Some really sloppy play and I don't think there were any chances after RVP went off.

    Hernandez>Wellbeck for me.

    Did anyone bring up the argument for de gea being reinstated? Can't help but feel he'd have saved at least one of those goals.

    Maybe he would, but in my view the defense is to blame for all the goals, not the keeper.

    Defence and keeper are almost symbiotic. One doesn't perform to a level, the other loses some confidence.

    It was terrible man-marking at set-pieces.. The keeper can go out and get some crosses but not all. Evans let his man go more than once.

    To be fair, Evans has improved since his loans with us, where he was brilliant...but he still doesn't seem a Utd level player to me.

    And Evra is shot.

    Agree he's a lot better than he was - I don't get nervous every time he's on the ball now =P

    Evra, Vidic & Ferdinand were formidable a few years back, but they are getting on now and no one really seems to really boss the defence any more. Theres no rock solid partnership to build on.

    Bring back Brown & Barthez! :)

    Evans is so badly underrated by so many. He's a fantastic player imo. He's a brilliant footballer to boot, think he gets blamed for far too much.

    Probably the best CB in the league. :p

    Who are you then?

    edit; if I thought he was being serious I'm pretty sure I'd have come out with something better than 'lolwut'.

    Let's be honest, my quality standards are not very high.

    Meh I'm not saying he's the league's best (I, personally think he's up there but understand others don't see it the same) but he is really very good. He's definitely underrated by most and could play for any of the top 3 teams easily.

    Edit I'll add an imo there.

    Evans has been quality, he's good enough and the odd bad game doesn't change that. Consistency will come with experience. I remember a time when Ferdinand had a reputation for falling asleep and costing the team a goal every few games.

    Anyway, Anderson has done his hamstring and will probably be out for a month before returning twice the size and half the player. Oh well. Scholes is nailed on to start against City, Vidic will also return and probably be rusty as hell. Good job we have a that three point cushion..

    Anderson done for the season now imo. Same pattern every year.

    Bloody hell. Utd's defence was so bad, even yoda's having a pop!

    Catching up on last night's MOTD.

    Swansea were immense, they bossed the match, had the lion's share of the possession (not easy to do away), and had loads more chances. Systematically took Arsenal apart.

    West Ham really should have lost, but a wasteful Chelsea performance saw WH tale their chances, great subs by Sam. (Shit, I've actually thought something positive about Big Sam...that's a first).

    So happy that Spurs won, that first goal completely changed the game, and Defoe is on rampant form. AVB made a great point about Bale, yes he's getting a reputation, but in the past players have made bad/tough challenges on him (with intent too; I'm mainly thinking of that mad cunt Adam. Will never forgive him for those two terrible challenges he's made on Bale - both times taking him out of action).

    I can't blame a player for going down easy when you have glass ankles, better to get a card then fuck your ankle again (I realise this goes completely against my moans about Bale in previous weeks, but AVB's point has really stuck in my mind).

    Edit- ADAM, not Adams :p

    Tony Adams stealth assaulted Bale?

    I know he's Arsenal through and through, but still.

    Also, as a few of you were saying midweek, Liverpool are playing some really nice football at the moment.

    They're quietly going about their business and creeping back up the table. I really don't like them, or Suarez, but Rodgers has them playing like a team again*

    (*though I won't forget that goal Suarez scored a few weeks back and nobody celebrated with him)
