Unfortunately the statistics don't lie. Only one goal attempt on target in 90 minutes. Also we were often harried off the ball in midfield. We are too lightweight. We need more steel in the centre circle. Most of our best players played reasonably well (SWP, Ireland, Kompany, Hart) but the others seemed unable to raise their game. I'm not sure Robinho was fully match fit. Once again no striker to make the difference with a cutting edge. 26 minutes against 10 men should have produced a goal. Still, the Premiership is secondary to our season now. The UEFA Cup and FA Cup are where we can make breakthroughs. Shrewd investment in January and we could make top 7 or 8 -- and have two good cup runs. If this sounds despondent it's because right now I am.
