    Yet another pathetic away performance

    And this time it ends in a loss to the team bottom of the table.

    Pathetic performance. We stood off Wolves far too much in the first half. Defending set pieces and through the middle was awful.
    Wolves defended well second half, but our passing was dreadful, from everyone. We created nothing to trouble them which just isn't anywhere near good enough.

    Our away form is going to throw title 19 away the way we're going. 7 away games to go with trips to Anfield, Stamford Bridge and The Emirates is worrying.

    • Another HONEST post.

    • Its the passing and support game thats worrying, simply because it vanishes away from home! They dont seem interested in winning the second ball, you never know which back four is going to turn up, the mid field never turn up , this result has been coming its only suprising its taken this long to come. Rooney whos he, does he even know, striker winger midfield hes clueless in all of them at the moment.
      Carrick dont even get me started with him!!

    • At last an HONEST post!!

    • Pathetic and another frustrating performance. I will attribute the loss to the mid-field. People will say that the whole team played badly, which is true but this was due to the fact that MF was completely lost! I saw the second half and fact that Evra, Giggs,Nani and even Rafael were at one time in the middle of the field explains that the MF was dead. In my opinion, the whole MF should be let go. And i know i may get some stick from some , but Fletcher,Carrick,Gibson aren't the quality we need. A lot of people have been hard on Anderson but in most of the games we struggled this season, he either wasn't played or subbed, and most of our woes came from the mid-field. I don't understand his benching to be honest and the coach should have seen the effect of this already. With due respect to Wolves but i still don't believe that we gave them the three points.From this performance, tough games ahead of us.

    • Awful performance today, and has been coming.
      The midfield was a joke as has been all season, and deff needs addressing in the summer.
      I fear for us now as we could collapse, as we just don't have the players.
      Was Roney even Interested today?
      Tough games coming up, and we need Anderson to hit the form of couple of months ago, and Park back in the side, asap

    • "trips to Anfield, Stamford Bridge and The Emirates is worrying."?

      I won't take your team's away games against Wigan Athletic, West Ham, Newcastle United, and Blackburn Rovers lightly, steve.

      They all need the points just like Wolves and will be a much tougher proposition than you think.

      After all none of you guys sees relegation fodder Wolves throwing a monkey wrench in the works prior to today's match.

      Fergie will have to do his 84 points target maths again as I'm pretty sure it included what he perceived as 3 easy points against the bottom side.

    • Why do we go for the impossible pass all the time?

      Because Scholes is so deep there's no link between defence and attack so it's a tentative hoof forward.

      A glorious chance to consolidate our lead thrown away.

      • Not 1 but 2 quality central midfielders needed really. Carrick is absolutely useless. Get rid of him and Gibson in the summer - they're a waste of wages. Cleverley back and 2 young, hungry, quality players please. That and a left winger and a goalkeeper. It's time to let dross like Carrick, Gibson and Obertan go.

        Also, please please Fergie start playing balanced centre back pairings. Vidic and Evans never play well together, so Smalling should be 3rd choice after our 1st choice 2!
