...what? They will suddenly click into gear automatically?? You know it doesn't work like that. In case you haven't noticed they are playing pretty poorly right now , passes going astray , low tempo etc - these are very bad habits to start developing right now. They ha ...[text shortened]... thing though. I absolutely hope you are right and I am completely wrong!
I completely agree with you that United have lost momentum, fluency and confidence.
I agree with some of your points and disagree with others.
United have had the following problems recently:-
- Our defense has suffered from injuries and a different back 4 every game
- We have had some very difficult games Roma(2), Liverpool, Arsenal, Boro away, Blackburn away, Chelsea away
- Ronaldo has lost confidence and form
- Trying to guess the midfield is like throwing a dice at the moment for various reasons
Surely you don't think you are a better judge of how United should play than Fergie?
We have had to play Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea and in each of these games the opposition HAD to perform.
These teams have rasied their games against United.
I think we'll go all out against Barcelona now that we know we just need a win.
The team can't play at the highest tempo every game, 2 games a week against the best teams in the world, it just doesn't happen.
Look how Arsenal faded away.
We have a clear target now.
We have to beat Barcelona at home.
Lets get behind the team, we have a great chance of making the final.
Ronaldo and Tevez are fresh, Ronaldo has to perform, he knows this and hopefully Rooney and Vidic are fit.
I can see us winning 2-0 or 2-1.
As for the league.
Chelsea played fantastic football in the 1st half.
They had to put everything into the game.
You're wrong if you think we can put out an attacking line up every game and we'll dominate games.
Its the end of the season and anything can happen.
Tuesday is our day to go for it.
Even though we have been playing inconsistently we should have got an away goal in Barcelona and was 5 minutes frmo a draw at Chelsea.
We also played well in the 2nd half against Chelsea but thats partly because Chelsea sat back a bit.
The difference bewteen United and Chelsea isn't so much that we can just put our best side out, play attacking football and expect to win.
They are unbeaten at home for 4 years for a reason.
Fergie took a strategic gamble, gave Ronaldo a deserved kick up the backside, rested Tevez.
We will really go for it now on Tuesday.
In the league like I said.
If we can't beat West Ham at home and Wigan away.
BTW, there's no guarantee Chelsea will beat Newcastle away.
Come on United.
