Why? He showed glimpses but lost the ball most of the time he had it after the first 20 minutes. Im not getting at him here but he didnt have an impact after the first cross, he looked extremely raw and thats because he is. There is no way we should be starting him over Bily or Ossie on the wings at this point.

Howard
Neville Jags Distin Baines
Osman Fellaini Arteta Pienaar
Cahill Beckford

That is my prediction but maybe Bily in for Ossie. I would much rather have Heitinga in for Distin though. Fellaini is a must though not just because he is arguably our best player but we need someone who might actually battle with Carew.

I'm not a big Distin fan but there's no way you can drop him after how he's been playing lately.

I could, easily. The guy is a liability. He doesnt have the pace he used to, he doesnt win enough aerial battles and often gets bullied by much weaker forwards than him. He has done ok this season as he did at the start of last but he soon became a big weak link and I would rather stamp that out now rather than a few bad results down the line.

Maybe I am harsh on him, coming in to replace Lescott hasnt helped him in my eyes. It was like going from a Bentley to a Hummer. Looks like it should have something but fails in most aspects. I just have no confidence in him being reliable.

I agree with your assessment of him, but I was coming more from the angle of what type of message would it send to the players if you're playing well and you're just dropped? He's been better than Jagielka as of late so it would be unfair on him to drop him instead.

Beckford has to start over Saha again. I'd like to see Rodwell handed a start in Cahill's role too.

You're always going to struggle when you can't get it right at either end of the pitch, regardless of how you do elsewhere. For some reason we just leak goals (Pienaar's fault for that one) and there's just no incision at the other end.

I'm not Moyes' biggest fan but how you can blame him today is beyond me. He made some bold decisions, starting Beckford and Rodwell on the wing. Granted, Rodwell was quite anonymous but he showed bottle in not playing Osman there.

He even overlooked Bilyaletdinov (who has been quite poor lately) to play Rodwell, and then brought Coleman on instead of him for the right wing.

I thought a lot of the players played well as well. They got their goal and defended like lions, heroic performance from their point of view. Strange game, we were unlucky.

This forum makes me fucking laugh.  Only this week people were clambering for Rodwell to play.  I have heard numerous people saying he should play right wing and when he does Moyes is a fuckwit for trying it.  If he had started with Osman there would have been murder.  He brought Coleman on at right wing (something everyone but me wanted to see) and switched an ineffective Beckford for the far more threatening looking Saha.  The only thing he didn't do was bring Bily on (and considering the stick people give him on here I am surprised that people all of a sudden see him as an answer). 

Honest of God what more do you want from the bloke. He and the team has received just criticism for the first two games but there was nothing he could of done about today IMO.  One thing I did notice is that the whole team have a nasty habit of playing the ball about a foot short of the player moving forward making them track back before they can move on.  Only Baines and Pienaar seem to know how to pass the ball in front of each other.

 

Good post.
