Reaction to the game against FC Basel…

1. I am not sure if I have ever seen United be so complacent. In my opinion, we were lucky to come out of that with a draw. We came out of the blocks firing, as you would expect us to do at home in Europe against lesser opposition and we played, I thought, very well in the first half. FC Basel did play their part in the first half and had their chances but were very wasteful in front of goal. Come the second half and 2 different teams walked out; everybody in United was guilty. Possession was lost all over the pitch and United just couldn’t seem to string moves together. Giggs missed what was a simple opportunity for him to put United 3 up. Welbeck was struggling to play as a lone forward in the second period. Young was finding his crosses ineffective from the wide positions and Valencia struggled to balance his defensive and attacking duties.

A few words ahead of the Leeds game…

As quickly as the massive fixture against Chelsea has now gone away, an away Carling Cup fixture to Leeds comes around only 2 days later. The history between these rivals is a long and bitter feud having played each other 106 times previously with United having won 45 of those in comparison to Leeds 26 (they have drawn the other 35 matches) and the game tonight bears to be no different. The last time these 2 sides met at Old Trafford in the 3rd round of the 2010 FA Cup, a solo goal from Jermaine Beckford gave Leeds a surprise victory that the home fans will no doubt rub in the face of us when we go to Elland Road tonight but considering Leeds have only won 2 times in 15 years against us at Elland Road, history dictates that it is a good feeding ground for United and after the loss at Old Trafford last year, SAF will be keen to reverse the result tonight.
