- Oh well... time to move on.

Deserved victory for Barca. Watching United was almost painful this time. What happened? I would simply say that wasn't our day. And Barcelona is in top form recently, it was their season. But IMO our tactics were bad too. Playing Anderson and setting Ronaldo as a striker? Oh no. I guess Sir Alex wanted to put some good technicians there, but it didn't work. Barca is playing well, while they have the ball, we saw that yesterday. Putting there Scholes (yes, I do remember his tackle, but at that point of time, I would do the same thing ;) and sending Ronaldo to the wing would be more accurate. Cristiano can score of course, but he won't help when Barca has the ball. Tevez would help. Or even having Berbatov on the pitch would help, cause Rooney likes to fight for the ball on the whole pitch and then he woudn't have to sit there, in front of Valdes goal.
Just my opinion. It's good to know that the players are aware of how badly it looked.
