Whole season gone in a fortnight really. Depressing April, this time last year we were coming back and scoring late goals against Villa and Spurs. This April we've only one once and that felt like a loss. Whether that's down to tiredness or a lack of Rooney we can't make excuses for not being good enough. Hasn't been our season what with injuries and everything. Been brilliant at times but losing 7 games isn't good enough, others have lost games too but we need them to lose more now. Still possible to win it but we need Spurs and the Scousers to do us a favour against Chelsea and for us to win every single game. More injuries again today with Rio, O'Shea and Giggs. Just hasn't been our season, i'm probably one of the most optimistic United fans but the season is looking bleak. And if the Glazers want to prove they're in it for the long haul they need to show the money in the summer otherwise they're going to face a roasting from us. If they back the team, Fergie and the fans, they might start winning the fans back.
Don't know what more to say. I want to believe we can still do it but at the moment pain is taking over for what our season has come to over the last 2 weeks.
I care not to rate the players. I don't even know who our best player was, I don't think we had one. Edwin didn't do much, sliced the ball in to touch unusually. Rio and Vida were solid but they had little to do. O'Shea had a typical "not played for months" performance. Neville, Scholes and Giggs played like the veterans they are. Nani, Valencia, Berba and Macheda were frustrating. Evra should have started really, he desrved a rest but he's so dangerous down the left, O'Shea isn't attacking enough. Maybe Rafael should have started too despite getting sent off on Wed. Blackburn aren't going to pose as much threat as Bayern do. We needed to be as attacking as possible, O'Shea and Neville just don't pose enough threat from the wings as Pat and Raf do.
as soon as saw starting line up I was fearful. Giggs and Scholes in centre midfield means will lack energy and spark in midfield, they both played deep which meant Berbatov had to play deeper than he has this season.
