Everton are fighting them well. We'll see what RVP has to say about it though.

Hate Evra. Why is he still on the team?

how did RvP look? He came on as a sub late. I followed the bbc feed for a bit but could not watch (work).

Pretty much invisible. It's almost as if he was an unnecessary signing and Ferguson should have looked at the gaping holes in midfield, where United rolled over and took whatever Fellaini felt like giving them for 91 minutes.

I hate Van Persie, but to be fair to him, he didn't play nearly enough to garner any sort of real reaction. But yeah, ManU need a bruiser in midfield. But they've been crying out for one ever since Roy Keane left. Kagawa looks very, very good, even being played out of position. He oozes class.

He'll show his class over the season, no doubt. I'm sure we'll see him pop up with goals here and there, but I don't think anyone can expect another season like he had last year.

Kagawa was United's best outfield player, but during the most decisive moments he was often stepping on Rooney's toes. I think both players like to play in the same sort of manner, and it draws further questions about signing Shinji, who would be better served at a team that press and push higher up the pitch, not play off crosses and quick breaks.

I fear Shinji is going to be misused as a CM or a winger, both positions he isn't suited for.

I hope Shingi is used as a center midfielder - I have seen him play quite a bit and he will be good there. Poor way to start the season but not worthy or much reflection. Too many players out to worry and Carrick as a centerhalf is makeshift against a six footer.

If Shinji is used in central midfield, as it seems he may be, then I can pretty much guarantee that you'll see many more dominant performances by big strong Premier League CMs over the season. He is great going forward and can win the ball back high up the pitch, but he'll get bossed by players like Fellaini, Yaya Toure, Lucas, etc.

Expect a dismal season if he's played out wide or in the center of midfield. He's good in between the lines in a 4-5-1.

Yeah, I'm giving Burton the benefit of the doubt and assuming he meant an attacking central midfielder, instead of wide midfielder (as he was deployed today). He's certainly not a box-to-box type of CM like you would have in a 4-4-2. Needs at least one person behind him doing the dirty work.

^^ Exactly what I meant--and thought I said. I do not believe today's formation has anything to do with the future look of the squad--not an excuse jsut a reality of the injuries and needs. Again, bossing Carrick, when in central defense, isn't that impressive. Would only Darren Fletcher have been healthy--much better choice for a makeshift centerhalf (but I digress). Ferguson has a lot of attacking talent--and today was actually a game that would have suited Chicarito--but that will get sorted. To believe otherwise is to think that SAF, after all these years and success, has decided just to throw something together--I just don't see that.

You'd think someone was posting lyrics to Munich songs. Not everybody likes your club, get over it.

It's the greatest club in the world, though.
