United 2 - 0 Wigan

Rafael Rio Vida Evra
Nani Carrick(Chicharito) Fletcher Park(Scholes)
Obertan Macheda(Rooney)

You can call me Mr. Grumpy but I wasn't impressed with today's performance. During the first half we lacked ideas but were lucky to lead at the break thanks to a good Evra header. Wigan had more goal scoring opportunities while our striker(s) looked like headless chickens running around with no particular clue of what to do. Macheda failed to impress me, although I firmly believe that he earned his place in the starting XI after last week's goal while Obertan is all about fancy stuff that doesn't get him anywhere.

However during the second half, Wigan had 2 players JUSTLY sent off and from then on only one team looked like scoring and, I must say, I'm gutted we didn't score more. Chicharito scored a stunning header and then went on to miss a sitter. Rooney, back after that October fiasco, did quite well. He had a powerful header saved and made some fine cross field passes. He missed a sitter as well though. Rafael, in my opinion, was the man of the match. He looked willing to attack and defended cautiously. His crosses were perfect today. The others who stood out today were Nani and Evra who both were a thorn in the Wigan defence.

We are now on top of the league. This position has been reached mainly because our rivals have become inconsistent and are dropping points for fun. Yes, United played their part but we haven't been playing that kind of football that makes us deserve to be on top. We need to wake up before the other sleeping giants do! Come on United!
