Think we’ve played pretty well recently, bar the Chelsea game. Had we smashed Stoke and Burnley like we might have with the wind blowing in a different direction, we’d be on a decent run of form with one appalling performance. For me, this weekend was the closest we’ve seen to a Fergie like siege on the Stretford End and the signs of improvement are there which just weren’t under LVG or Moyes.
Despite some people dubbing him Rooney v2.0, Ibra’s overall performance was great bar the finishing touch, though naturally that’s a huge part of his game. Needs to fix that sharpish, but unlike Rooney, I don’t think he’s suddenly washed up. Even RVP went for a run of 10 games without scoring in his title winning season. Been too readily blamed when none of our other forwards are contributing to the score sheet either.
