collecting the ball and then doing nothing with it-rooney's speciality at the minute.
I've never been convinced by Rooney on his own up front but that was his best performance in about a month.
took no-one on at all, made no runs after the incorrect offside decision in the first ten minutes (exactly the same as liverpool).
anderson was ace yup, and Evra.
when did he take the ball past anyone instead of passing down to the wings? when did he make a run past a defender for someone to aim at?
that thinks a striker is only playing well if he's taking people on? He looked your player most likely to score today easily
testing the keeper with shots, or doing good runs so a midfielder can thread a ball through to him, yeah one of those three
he was the only player of yours that looked dangerous, bar obertan who looked impressive when he came on and like someone who could cause us problems.
the shot outside the box, sure, but except for that every time he was in a position to try a shot or move into a better one he'd just lazily lay it off to valencia or giggs on the side.
except for quoting Martin Samuel in something i baulked at?
and i think Evans is a better option as a game-in, game-out partner for Vidic than Ferdinand. has Rio's performances/appearance record proved that wrong?
im basing it on the numerous calf and back injuries he accumulates
