11 goal attempts with 8 on target against a rampant Man U Team ain't bad going really. Against lesser opposition that would be atleast a point.

Well, it was a better performance than the one against Chelsea. Even so, MU were able to score because of the gaping holes in the defence. The Jarvis-Fletcher axis is looking good though: it has to function effectively next week.

...gaping holes in the defence, and a porous midfield as well;the reluctance to challenge for the ball outside the penalty area and no attempt to block incoming shots at goal....MU saw this and their forwards started having a go whenever the opportunity arose, taking WH by surprise. The most, or the one effective department, was the attack. The positive point is that MM has seen that only an attacking approach can pay and is worth all the toil and preparation - go for all three points whatever the opposition. So I cannot complain either as to the approach or to the commitment. But I also see that he can hardly do otherwise - with Fletch in the form he is in, and Doyle undropable, not to mention Jarvis. Against lesser opposition, results are possible, barring an encounter with a bad day at the office of the QPR kind.

Defensive sweeper/enforcer a must,shrek and co had way to much space and failure to close down a major worry,words like turkey shoot come to mind!.Awaiting Wolfies report with relish.UTW.

Although I cannot write a report at the moment, my comment on another thread- gaping holes in the defence, a non-existent midfield but the makings of a partnership upfront between Jarvis and Fletcher- accurately sums up our performance. Crete's comment encapsulates it all as well.

Why no report southbank? Technical problems or lack of time?

Maybe it's time Mick is sacked. He has the look of resignation all over his face. Pretty pathetic given the amount of money these so called 'stars' are on.

Wolf Man: I had two discs removed from my neck a month ago and if I hunch over a keyboard to type it aggravates the site and hinders recovery. So, I can only type in short bursts standing up with two box files under the keyboard on my desk. I can't drive or travel to a match either so all in all it's rather frustrating at the moment. For a moment yesterday there was a glimmer of hope when we pulled one back after the break. Then, MU resumed normal transmission, storming through our midfield and taking pot-shots at our goal.
11/12/2011 12:20:00
So, another one for Fletch. How much is he worth? That will be for the bidders to decide. The next 'window' is almost upon us and for the first time in our PL experience, we are going to be tested as a club in a way that's new to us. He isn't the biggest earner at the club, if reports concerning the RJ and KD contracts are anything like accurate.He wouldn't appear to be in the inner circle of MM favourites, either.If his treattment last season and his continuing playing of second fiddle to Doyle this season come back to bite MM should he have to persuade Fletch to stay,then what?
11/12/2011 12:48:00
I think MM is becoming a believer, judging from the pre-match report that he pencilled in Fletcher and nine others (Henry was a given). But, how forgiving is Fletcher? Perhaps MM should ask Craig Levein, the Scottish manager.
