Excellent at times today, Welbeck was good when he was on i hope his injury isn't too serious. Cleverely silently going about his work in midfield too, it's good to see the confidence up. We were wasteful at times (especially with Valencia on the ball). West Ham are dirty fuckers, Mccartney should have been off for that challenge on Hernandez. I hope they get relegated.

Gradually getting better. Seeing an improvement team wise, and some individual play as well. Pity we couldnt of gotten a 4th clean sheet, and Hernandez's goal was onside. He was level with the defender. Pity the advantage for Cleverley hadnt of been played also.

That was a fairly solid performance today and quite comfortable at times.
We were by far the better team and actually should have won it a lot more convincingly.

Valencia wasting possession up top, then Buttner falling asleep at the back, was what led to the West Ham goal.
Nothing De Gea could do. He should be fuming. Had literally nothing to do all day and he deserved another clean-sheet.

Nice to be on a bit of a winning run. Lets make it last over the Xmas now.
More like the United we all want to see today. Encouraging.

I thought you had looked in to tell us how pleased you were with the way Kags played!:whistle:
ffs, Dave :adolf:. I mean, would certainly like to see more of Kags. Would have worked well the way we played today, short, quick, movement. Pity he's been ill for these confidence building fixtures. But today, man... Cleverley, Jones, Rooney, we had a midfield. Minus Anderson and Buttner, a lot of the less reliable lads have been stepping up. Welbeck was superb. Young wasn't particularly impressive overall, but that goal is one to remember. Januzaj promising, but damn that diving has got to stop. And Cleverley, you realize he's had a few good games on the run now? Evans as well, wonderful ball play from a CB. Rafael-Valencia unplayable... if only Valencia had better end product. Jones again a barely noticed MOTM worthy performance at DM. Still a ways to go, but there is hope.

3 points 7th pending the results of other games. Despite Young's goal our attacking in the 2nd half was not good enough. Far too much on the right hand side, Valencia despite him being a threat does not have enough end game, which is all well and good in games against WHU, once we get into tougher teams, he will be double and triple teamed, he won't have the same number of chances and cannot afford to be wasteful.
Ravel who? It's no coincidence that we have been scoring more goals since Rooney started playing CM.
Another solid game for Jones/Evans/Smalling, especially Jones, still think he is capable of playing CDM.

Yes, but remember 7th is just 7th. We must remain quiet, and sneak up the table you know as you do.
It's certainly galling to see City, Arsenal, Chelsea and even Liverpool being at the top of the table and us NOT being there.
The points gap is 5,6 and 7 now. (before Chelsea play Arsenal, of course)

To think we were 5 points off the top on Nov 10. That was supposed to be the start of the comeback!

Only a couple of annoyances today. The injury list is mounting. Welbeck, Nani ( for what it's worth), RVP, Carrick, Fellaini and Kagawa even though we have relatively light opponents in the next few games so hopefully we can get one or two back.
Januzaj. Diving. Moyes has hopefully had a word with him. Let's hope it the age thing. Absolutely embarrassing today.
Other than that, a good performance. We're slowly accumulating points and gaining momentum and consistency in our play. We actually looked like we could break a defence down today. An early goal makes all the difference.
