That's to be expected when you don't have the ball. United had over 80% possession over some five-minute spells in the second half. We also started at a hell of a tempo and some of the lads played midweek as well so I wouldn't be too worried.
He isn't a good finisher, never has been. He just hits the ball as hard as he can and sees whether it goes in or not and he needs loads of chances to score. His shots to goal ratio is 0.14, Crouch's is 0.13, Bent's is 0.22.

Regarding his footballing ability, personally I've always thought he's got the potential to be a cracking defender, all the attributes you would need and when he has a run he does iron out the mistakes. Potent in front of goal too; always a bonus.
Assets are always handy to have in case of financial difficulties. Imagine we get in a spot of financial bother, if we have three or four £20m players the club survives, if we have old players we can't do this and we'd go under.

Debuchy Chedjou Rami* Emerson
Mavuba Cabaye Balmont
Gervinho Sow Hazard
That is their starting eleven, Beria sometimes plays instead of Chedjou though. The players in bold are looking likely to leave. Rami was sold to Valencia in Jan but was on...
It was a very good goal, but he didn't get involved as much as I would have wanted. To be fair to him though, Bertrant from left back was getting forward a lot forcing him out wide and too high up where he looks less comfortable.
