Okay, the ref got it wrong in the Real Madrid game, but that doesn't excuse the kind of football and results that Manchester United have served since the 56th minute of that tie.
The other issue is a continued reliance on the wings for service to the attackers. Whatever happened to playing through the middle and varying the play just to give us that other option.
It therefore begs the question as to why Sir Alex continues to bench Shinji Kagawa and yet he is the one player in our team that is comfortable with playing through the middle and hence supporting the striker ahead of him.
Anyhow, as it stands, we remain on course to win that 20th title. City last night simply showed how good they can be on their day and its a level that we shall have to match next season if we are to hopefully be in the position as defending champions.
It's a 7 game limp to the finish line, but you wouldn't bet against United to make it an entertaining finish for the neutrals.
