A win is a win---and that is all I usually ask for from Manchester United but something has got to happen among Bebe, Obertan, Carrick and Gibson if the are to stay at Manchester United for the long haul.
The lads have already received enough criticism from the press and the media alike for their 1-0 win last night that saw us book a place in the last 8 of the FA Cup so I won't go on about that a lot but those few players I've singled out might attract unfriendly attention from the manager. I feel that when you play in Manchester United's 'B' team, then you are as good as a first team player because more often than not you get to play a lot of senior games. I mean I've lost count of the number of games Sir Alex has gone without naming the same team. So you expect the likes of Gibson and the like to put in top class performances especially against inferior opposition five league below us.
That the Crawlely Town midfield passed the ball better than us in the middle of the park is appalling.
Wayne Rooney came on in the second half and the most significant thing he did was to pick up a yellow card. Valencia's return can't come soon enough for him.
We sustained a few injuries on the night that could cost us personnel for Wednesday night so hopefully Rafael and Anderson are fit for the flight to France.
We've turned winning without playing well as a theme song for the season so I won't be complaining much of we win the lot after playing poorly all season but that attitude will change when we start losing after playing badly.
