They didn't look too invincible yesterday now did they? We didn't put in a classic performance, but we did manage to score two goals against a team who put 10 men behind the ball and are just as rough as Stoke! So all in all, the rags aura is starting to slip, and they don't look that good at all, whilst we are getting stronger with each game. We might be sharing top spot at the moment, but I can't see them staying the pace for long, given that they have been conceding loads of chances and scoring about 50% of the ones they take. Somethings got to give soon.

I think we are seeing that they have no real strength in depth. Minus Rooney up top the rest of their forwards are bobbins and if they didn't get work from Nani they would really struggle. They have no natural ball players a la Silva in the middle. The twists and turns will continue and will have us all biting our nails

Rooney is the lifeblood of that team and with neither him or Hernandez they lack movement up front as Berbatov is lethargic and Owen is like a much slower version of Hernandez and easier to pick up. Nani is their second most important player, he is a**** but a fantastic player who is a game-changer. Without he and Rooney I honestly think they could plummet to third or fourth.
