Carrick hasn't been quite the same this season and it was his lack of concentration or slowness (in the brain) that led to the first Bayern goal. But I think he's still a decent player and worth a place in the squad. Saying that, we do need a class central midfield addition - something that was clear to see in last season's CL final.
As for Berba - he's OK when we are playing well. But if we are chasing the game, he's not really up to the task most times.
Again though, worth being in the squad.
I am not in any way trying to absolve Carrick of being at fault in part for the first bayern goal but the question i would pose is why was a midfield player the last man in defence especially when he was chasing their centre forward.Surely the central defenders should have had him in their sights.
last nights was a good performance destroyed somewhat by the Rafael sending off but i believe we lost the tie in Munich due to a terrible piece of defending in the last few seconds of stoppage time.That late goal combined with their first goal last night gave them a terrific lift.
