Mirallas Pienaar Oviedo
This may help Jelavic start scoring, Pienaar last year was playing though balls to Jelavic, Jelavic was slotting them away.
I doubt we'll see him score score much until some rearranging is done in the attacking half, Fellaini needs to play deeper.
In this sort of game, our passing should be superior, keep it on the ground, no hoofing or long balls.
Subs need to be better when we are leading, clap of the hands goes to Moyes when we are losing games, when he puts subs on but when it's the other way round there needs to be fresh impetuous when we're winning. Getting that 2, 3 goal lead is vital especially in games like this.
Norwich is a perfect example of that, taking of Jelavic to bring on Mirallas was just a joke. Same with the Oldham replay, we're 3-0 up in the 2nd half, what does Moyes do? Instead of pushing Oldham further, he leaves the already tiring team on when they put their 2 subs on.
When we are in such a dominant position 3-0, put another attacking player on. What is the point in putting Naismith and Hitzlsperger on in the 84' and 89' minute respectively? It's absolutely bizarre some of the decisions Moyes makes when we are leading. And it really does question my believe that Moyes has doubts about using his squad, whether that be using subs or finally dropping Neville when we have someone who can do all what Neville does but better, 'Hitzlsperger'!
Everybody saw the difference in the last two games when both opposite teams put subs on. Norwich put Kamara on, what does that do? Reinvigorates their team and gives the fans something to shout about, they then scored 2 in the last 5 minutes while we've done ourselves by taking Jelavic off. We probably would of won it if Oviedo and Mirallas would of come on when they put pressure on us 30 minutes from time.
Oldham as well, luckily we were too good for them, as they're a League 1 side, they put two players on (including the grock) guess what happens when the pile pressure on? They score.
Moyes needs to show confidence for once in his squad, because I for one do not feel comfortable when we are leading 1-0 and it's happened so many times this season where we've completely lost the plot, not by fatigue but often by how the team is set out when they put some pressure on us. Games like Norwich at home, Reading away, Oldham away, Norwich away are just a few examples of this, all games we should of won but they all have a common theme, not putting games to bed when we have a chance.
