    Well they had a game plan to play to Carroll's strengths and it worked...feck that we were controlling the game.

    Don't know how you could call him lazy, he may have played the occasion but he wasn't lazy, and that wasn't entirely his fault

    Better than losing in the semifinal or the final to be honest.. We have way to many injuries to be competing in multiple competitions.

    Let's concentrate on the league now..

    Well they scored twice, hit the bar, and Kuyt missed a sitter. And on top of that we defended badly. It's no use controlling the game if you don't create many chances and give stupid ones away on top of that.

    The other problem we had was they knew we would be attacking from the right .. and it would be Valencia.. as we had nobody else...
    So you could see sometimes 4 players marking Valencia..

    Be nice to have some consistency from the refs. He went to his pocket after this then bottled a yellow at least. Then booked Rafael straight after!

    Maybe I didn't see it, but Scholes did not seem like he was tiring that much.

    Valencia hit the post...
    Welbeck turned Reina but Skertel hooked it away

    We could have won this, instead we have to see Dogleash celebrating like he'd been given the keys to a whisky distillery

    he was not as bad as some paint him out to be. really he did not have much to do today. he made a couple of errors...his positioning for their first goal was one. but our defenders were not great there either.

    The reason we lost is we were toothless up front.

    Conversely, we completely outplayed them but one key player underperformed.

    With increasing amounts of frustrating losses, and given the general knee-jerk reactions to anything other than a win; it might actually save time and effort to just create an "official: Knee-Jerk reaction" thread for those that wish to extol the virtues of "end is nigh" ideology..

    btw I thought the ref had a good game overall. That tackle was a yellow...but not a red imo.

    just move on lads.

    I was pleased we passed as well as we did with so many players out.

    it hurts cause we lost to them....

    on to the Stoke match.

    No idea, but I bet he admits to picking the wrong team/taking Scholes off, and blames injuries.

    Still better than "Next year will be ours" to be honest, and I hope we don't end up saying that in May (or worse in April or March)...

    Let's go for #20!!!

    Scholes coming off was fully expected. He needs at least 4 matches to be totally match fit.

    But it was great to see him in command when he was there.

    what a player to have back.

    Dissapointed to loose.

    I went into it with fairly low expectations but on the whole I was pleased with the performance apart from the softness of the goals.

    No idea why ITV chose to subject us frequent shots of Goofy though. Horrible little man.

    Really? Didn't hear that from where I was sat. You sure it wasn't us chanting attack, attack, attack attack attack in the last 20 minutes?

    How did the United end come across on tv anyway? Was well loud in the ground and I dont really want to witness replays of it to see if they picked us up well or not.

    Yeah no that was definitely attack, attack, attack. Would have made the press by now if it wasn't!

    Pretty good actually. Was a good bit of back and fourth between the home and away fans. Could hear most of the songs clearly. Home fans got louder in the last 20 minutes and, of course, after the goal.

    i was at the game. we played well, controlled the game. we lost. life sucks.

    one thing i wanted to say, is that i was ashamed to be a united fan on saturday. we can have all the moral outrage we want, but the idiots who sang the "the sun was right, you murderers" should be banned from the club. thankfully it wasnt everybody, but alot sung it.

    liverpool fans were doing their munich taunts of course, they too should be banned. but its rich of us to complain about the racism and all that, when we sing those songs.

    it was sickening to be in the police escort on the way into town and having to listen to the always look on the runway for ice, so i imagine its the same for people who were hurt by hillsborough.

    2 wrongs dont make a right, i hope both clubs will stamp this out. but any united fan who sung that, should be ashamed. it doesnt make you a good fan, it makes you a c*nt. same goes for them.
