Won't ever have to sit on the bench after performances like that son......(Photo by Alex Livesey/Getty Images)
Were going to do this differently today. Basically me and Gene both had issues watching the match yesterday. So we need your help.....
We need you to post your ratings in the comment's section. Come later in the week we will then stick a further post on the front page taking each rating and averaging it out.
Simples? Hopefully it is. This needs your input for this to work.
A score of 1 being the lowest (Any Arsenal defender standard), 10 being the highest (Messi like) A score of 6 will be standard, 7 is solid, a very good game will get an 8, 9 is good for outstanding and 10 is unplayable. 10's will be very rare. Not only will they have to play the game of their life, but it will usually come against a team of good quality or in a big match (Finals, championship deciding game's etc.)
Although mine won't be accurate, I will start us off
David De Gea - Best performance of his young Manchester United career. Clung onto the ball in crosses and saves. Love that. 9/10
Phil Jones - Was disciplined. Didn't get forward as much as he would have liked, or as much as we are accustomed to seeing. 6/10
Jonny Evans - Steady performance. Has cut out the mistakes that once tarnished his game 6.5/10
Rio Ferdinand - Much better. But we do tend to sit deeper with him in the team. Invited pressure onto us. 7/10
Patrice Evra - Still not getting it done defensively. Let Pilkington run off him far too easily in the first half. 5/10
Nani - Brilliant for the first 20. Grabbed the assist for Scholes. Then vanished. 6.5/10
Micheal Carrick - Let Norwich dominate for large parts of the game. Needs to impose himself just a little more 5.5/10
Paul Scholes - Grabbed the early goal with a trademark late run. But the same as Carrick. We got dominated far too much and we couldn't keep foot on ball 6.5/10
Ryan Giggs - couldn't have timed his goal any sweeter. Could be a Macheda moment in our title run. Momentum may have shifted.... 8/10
Danny Welbeck - A fine first year he is having. Didn't get on the score sheet but caused Norwich problems none the less. 7/10
Javier Hernandez - Quiet. Couldn't get into the game. Lack of service did not help a bit. 5.5/10
Ashley Young - Came up with a delightful cross for Giggs. More of the same please 6.5/10
Chris Smalling - Feed had really bummed out by the time he came on.... N/A
So all in all, not the greatest day at the office, but we still came home with the title run in tact. Norwich made it very difficult, but we didn't expect any less did we.
So, just post your ratings in the comments section. If it is a success, I might even think about doing this every time out.....
