Bolton 2 - 2 United

O'Shea Vidic Evans Evra
Nani Fletcher(Owen) Scholes Giggs(Park)
Rooney(Macheda) Berbatov

Some say this was a point gained, other say two points lost. In my opinion we gained a point because Bolton could have buried us if they converted a couple of decent chances, however, I'm still disapointed we couldn't capitalise on the Londoner's slip yesterday. We are a point closer to Chelsea, but I'd rather be a point behind them! We are now second with Arsenal and Man City breathing heavily down our necks, but hey it's still September and trailing "unstoppable" Chelsea by 3 points isn't such a big issue.

Nani scored a superb goal and Owen helped us get the point with a very good header. The problem today was, as with all the other games, our defence. Evans did well at times but was atrocious on others. Vidic will have better games while O'Shea and Evra were poor once again. O'Shea is to be blamed for Bolton's second, he should have been defending that area rather than Park. Evra, this year, looks uninterested. At the front, after last week's highs, Berbatov was sent back to planet earth by being marked out of the game. On the other hand Rooney wasn't awful today, but I still expect more from such a talented player.

All in all I'm pretty dejected. Not being capable of winning a game away from home is very worrying and we still have to face a lot of very strong teams both home and away. I'll take the season game by game and see how it evolves and whatever happens I'll still keep the red flag flying high! Meanwhile a tough away game vs Valencia looms large. Come on United.
