A bit of a be-lated review of the weekend but oh well....
Patrick Vieira recently claimed that recalling Paul Scholes was a sign of desperation from us but after watching him seal the win on Sunday and then watch his side drift further behind us, I'm sure he's finding eating his words a bit bitter.
As far as the title race is concerned, we're now in a position where I'll commit suicide if we manage to throw away the title. An eight point gap with 6 games left should surely be enough for us now, for the simple reason that we have manager who should ensure that at worst we finish a point ahead of City now.
That said, the manager said he'd rest a few legs for tonight's meeting with Wigan; Now whilst it is understandable, given that we have another game on Sunday, we've yet to put up a midfield that can cope minus Scholes and Carrick. Cleverely might come in and he can do a job but the times I've seen him at his best are when he's got Welbeck upfront with whom he has a perfect understanding. Nani and Smalling could be the other players that come in whilst we could see Rio, Scholes and Carrick given a breather.
Ultimately though, I'd gladly take another scrappy win.
Winning the title at the Etihad is now a possibility, or even better is staying so far ahead and earning ourselves a guard of honour at Wastelands.
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!
