It's been coming... very sloppy play almost all game. A lot of teams would have really punished us playing like we have...
Arsenal could well be at least two up by now.

76mins 15 secs

Hernandez and Berbatov on the bench and United bring on Scholes and Park? Playing for the draw much?

Good shout on the subbed sub whoever it was.

Can't say Arsenal didn't deserve that. (was referring to their goal)
Nicely took by Welbeck.

Actually, I was right as he didn't enter the field of play until 15 minutes had elapsed. Hence, 75 to survive...

You're kidding, no? Walcott was on the floor for a good few plus there was numerous other minor stoppages!

Agree though, massive result today!

at least 1 of them was spent with him bumbling around while we were waiting for him to blow the whistle to let us take a free kick.. i kept thinking we were going to get done for timewasting only to realise he hadn't actually blown his whistle yet..

Doesn't victory taste just a little bit sweeter when a young lad from the academy scores the winner

more so when it's been so long since anyone from the academy looked worth keeping hold of. I'll admit i didn't rate Welbeck but that loan has done him the world of good, he's come back a proper player. Shame we can't say the same for Macheda.

Unhappy to see one of the Da Silva twins failing to complete 90 yet again, i wonder if these guys will ever hit puberty and get a bit of muscle on them, they could both be great if they weren't so fragile.

I noticed that - United players were actually complaining to him about the time wasting!

Evra was on form today, probably the best game he has had for 18 months.
