A last minute winner against Wolves and a no-show against Villa, (the last 10 minutes apart) were the prelude to what looked like an easy home game against our non-bogey team, Wigan.
The midfield, as usual this season, looked too easy to bypass and Wigan looked a threat at times in the first half but, as is our way, a last minute goal. This time in the first half from Evra, another who ‘hasn’t been playing well’.
The game was over when Wigan were reduced to 10 and then 9 within three minutes, both fully deserved I might add. Another good Hernandez goal and 2-0. Job done!
Rooney was back to what was definitely a mixed reaction but I think it was fair. I would never agree with booing someone in the red shirt, BUT we all know what he did, and sadly, why. Also I’m still waiting for an apology from him that the gaffer promised. Like most of the fans, I would rather have him, than not have him and he’s too good a player not to find form soon, so it’s not all bad.
What I’m trying to get at is… We are joint top of the league. We are joint top scorers (with Chelsea and Arsenal) and most importantly we are unbeaten in all competitions. Also United generally peak in the second half of the season.
So yeah, maybe we aren’t playing well at the moment, but aren’t you looking forward to when we do?
