A slim wins for United in the midst of celebration of Ferguson 25 years in charge at Old Trafford. It was party atmosphere for United faithful and the Great Old Master where he had a stand named after him. This kind situation should bring lively spirit to United players. However their performance still not arise to the occasions. They needed goal from their ex player to give them the three points.
Rooney again been tasked at middle of the field. One can argued that he performed brilliantly. His awareness, sharpness and passes were outstanding but again I believed it was a wastes to play Rooney there. He more useful as striker.
United needs to find the midfield maestro fast as they could not rely simply on Cleverley. To win many trophies they need in dept squad. As showed in 1999 when the won the treble, United played 75 games altogether in that season. So players rotation is very essential to keep them fresh and importantly to keep fit and injury free. There is still a lot of time for United to hit the fifth gear as now they are stuck at second's.
