I'm not a Manure lover, as you can probably see from my the team i support. But apart from the players not seeming to give their all, most of the blame has to go to Alex Ferguson. This might be stretching it but the blame goes right back to the purchase of Veron. He's an absolutely brilliant player but why did Manure ever buy him? They had undoubtedly the best midfield in Europe with Beckham, Keane, Scholes and Giggs. Why mess that up? Ferguson should've spent the money on another defender to partner Stam. But then he went and fell out with Stam and sold him. Ok, so Brown's good but he's not the finished articly like Stam was, and Brown is injury prone. Ferguson should've just spent big in defence because that is their weak point. I seriously think that with another two world class defenders Manure would've won the PL and CL. It has been their defence that has let them down all season, such as last week when they conceded two goals at home. The result last night wasn't that bad concidering. But manure lost it at home.
