Typically as the Great Grant Apologist, Hammersfan puts the blame for our defeat on referee Mason and whilst I'm not denying the Pillock with the Whistle played a blinder for Ferguson, the fact is, we were 2-0 up at half time and lost the game 4-0 in the second.
What happened? Did Scotty go into the away dressing room and deliver a fight them on the beaches speech? Did the Man Utd captain of the day do that job? Or did Ferguson, a proper manager, get amongst his team and tell them how to rip us apart second half?
Why is it that time and time again, we only play for 45 minutes? At West Brom it was second half. Against Birmingham in the Cup, it was first half. Today, just as at Stoke with the Etherington penalty, we handed the initiative to the opposition in the first minute of the half. Same flank, the right, defence fast asleep, and this time Hernandez put the chance wide. The writing was on the wall from that point onwards.
Second half we were shagged out. Why? Had Grant taken them all on a bonding exercise to a massage parlour he knows during the international break? Or had Keane taken them on a bender in Dublin? Your guess is as good as mine but we looked slow and unfit, and the Mancs over ran us in disgraceful fashion.
When will Grant play Ba down the middle? When will he recognise O'Neil is shit? When will he learn how to deliver a half time team talk? And when will somebody sort out Green's positioning at free kicks? Never mind Rooney, I could have bent the ball into the space he left.
We were piss poor today and Grant has to take the blame for that. He invited the Mancs on and they said thanks very much and murdered us. This team is too good to go down but Grant could engineer it, just like Roeder. Blackburn drew at Arsenal. We are deep in the shit again!
Come On You Irons!
