United 2 - 0 Blackburn

O'Shea Brown Evans Evra
Valencia Anderson Carrick Nani(Obertan)
Berbatov(Owen) Rooney

It was a frustrating match but United still managed to get the much needed 3 points. Berbatov and Rooney scored the only two goals during the second half but in reality United should have won by a wider margin. Berbatov's goal was beautifully executed while Rooney's goal was the result of a well timed run by the Englishman and a pin point cross by the impressive Anderson.

I think that it was a good performance by United, we played some marvelous football at times but we're not really deadly at the front. Although both strikers were on target, Berbatov should have scored at least a hat trick today but I guess his brilliant goal makes up for the missed chances.

Meanwhile we've finally seen Obertan play in the Premier League. What do I think about him? Well it wasn't the best of debuts. His first 'contribution' was to carry the ball out of touch, he also missed a sitter and showed some poor touches. In my opinion he's not yet ready to play for United against Premier League teams. He will get his chances in cup matches.

My question is.....When on earth will we see United play the United way? When will we start battering teams we totally outplay? Blackburn didn't improve on last week's performance vs Chelsea so why on earth didn't we stuff them with 5 goals? I think our problem is our attack. We need that lethal finisher, a finisher who's deadly in front of goal, unlike Rooney, Berbatov and Owen who missed another good opportunity late on. I think Fergie might have to buy someone come January.

Next match is vs CSKA, a draw will see us through to the last 16.
