Another stuttering display which yielded 3 points, so I don't have much to complain about. BUT that performance was not worthy of champions to be. If we're aiming to win the Champions League, we need to perform much much better than that. Apart from the goals by Valencia and Rooney, there weren't much positives during this game.
I'm not sure what's happening but something is not clicking. We've performed below par for the last 7 games (in champions league & premier league). We need to get out of this poor form as soon as possible because we just can't slip in the upcoming winnable games. We'll be facing Sunderland, Swansea and Newcastle during this month and any average performance could cost us the three points against the likes of Newcastle, who are still unbeaten.
At least our main rivals, Benfica, drew against Basel today and that means that now we're joint leaders in our group. We should progress towards the second stage of this year's champions league but then again, there shouldn't have been any doubts about our qualification. That game vs Basel should have been won easily but complacency cost us 3 precious points. Anyway, its no use crying over spilt milk. We'll have to look forward and hope that we recapture our August form and destroy anything that comes our way. I believe we have got the squad to do so. Come on United!
