Birmingham 1 - 1 United

Rafael Brown Evans Evra
Valencia Carrick Scholes(Diouf) Fletcher(s/o) Park(Giggs)

Another 2 points dropped :( Fergie demanded a reaction to last Sundays match vs Leeds and he could not have complained about the commitment and determination of his players as they dominated the first half. However, Birmingham still managed to score against the run of play. We are definitely missing a lethal striker and I guess young Diouf wasn't the answer to our lack of finishing abilities in front of goal. He's still inexperienced so I can't really phatom why he was brought on instead of Owen. It was an own goal, the 5th of the season, that won us a point and that is really worrying.

Mark Clattenburg made a fool of himself by sending Fletcher off for a soft tackle. What on earth was Mr Clattenburg thinking??? His lousy assistant nearly dismissed our goal for no reason, just beacuse the City players were complaining! Now for a positive. Our Pole in goal was excellent once again, and although he may be at fault for the goal United conceded, he kept us in the game with a few brilliant saves. Well done Kuz!

Anyway, we had a chance to go on top of the PL and we've blown it again. Heck! Even Man City are now breathing down our necks. I'm resigned to a trophyless season. City will probably dump us out of the Carling cup. I don't think that we'll win anything this year. We haven't got the character and we rely heavily on Rooney. We need another strong, word class striker, otherwise we might as well bid the 19Th title goodbye and if we don't have the money to buy one, then fuck it, Fergie should admit it rather than keeping us in hope.
