The players have quality, there's no doubting that.
There were 2 big problems with last nights team.
1) Nani probably has more English first team experience than Simpson, Bardsley, Pique, Evans, Martin, Eagles, Anderson and Dong added together. And he has only played 6 games.
2) John O'Shea being the experienced player on the pitch is always going to be a worrying sign. Especially, when he is playing in midfield with a winger longside him.
I'm fairly certain that we'll be seeing a lot of Pique, Martin, Anderson and Nani in the coming years.
Rossi was the player I was really looking forward to coming out of the youth setup. Unfortunately, Ferguson decided to let him move on and get on with his career. He has scored 3 in 3 to help Villareal to 2nd in the Primera Division.
