The disgrace is that liverpool players were allowed to push and pull utd players in the penalty box without punishment - Vidic was pulled down, Rooney was blocked off and when Berbatov scored his first goal it was despite Torres having his arns all over him. No argument with liverpool`s penalty but the fact is utd should have had at least one possibly two spotkicks.
This site is mixed of blindsighted/clueless fans and those who at least try and look objectively.
The reality is , you ran us ragged first half and we were lucky to only concede one.
First half liverpool were the better team and aside from berbatovs brilliance we were comfortable.
As for the Nani comment. Come on surely even some of you diehard united fans must wince at his play acting, and face holding. He had a great game but copuld have been sent off for a second yellow for that dive off agger. But we all know that Webb wouldnt have the balls to make a decision like that at old trafford.
I though a draw was a fair result personally , but all credit to berbatov for getting all three points.
Was rooney playing?

Rooney was playing......playing shite!
Its quite disconcerting that we keep gift wrapping goals to mediocre mid table teams that we walk all over most of the game, but Im going to put it down to Uniteds typically dodgy early season form, and hope it sorts itself out later, as it usually does!
Nani can be very frustrating. If he spent as much time on his feet as he does on his arse, then he would have a much greater impact on games. He needs to take a leaf out of Giggs' book, and then maybe opposition managers will say the same thing they used to about Ryan: "the difference between the two teams was Nani; we just couldn't cope with him".
As for objectivity, I think you might recall my prediction at the start of last season that Liverpool would drop out of the Top 4, and you accused me of lacking that very quality!
