It was another strange performance for me yesterday. We dominated the possession, created two or three really good chances, created lots of not so good chances - but I always felt that Utd were playing in 1st gear and scared me senseless when they did break (although RvP, Rooney and Wellback barely got a sight of goal). Lemmon was giving Evra a torrid time and I thought Daws looked quietly confident. Parker, after a bit of a shaky start with some misplaced passes settled nicely for his first game for ages - and Dempsey again saw more of the ball, Dembele worked well - but for all that, we still seemed to lack something to me. I'm not sure we have the ideas to break teams down.
A striker and a VdV replacement (I'm not sure that Dempsey, Gylfi are quite up to it on current performances) for me.
I think one of the problems is that we have no penalty box predators. Defoe mainly likes to play on the edge of the box and run across defenders and get a shot away, but very rarely makes runs in during build up play, plus he's very static, waiting for ball to come to him rather than gambleing when balls played across goal. Ade's much the same and like a powderpuff in the six yard box IMO. We need someone like Hernadez who is lethal in the box.
