Comg up to half-time now, one each. Ronaldo and Cahil scorers. I am listening to it on the Radio and we sound a bit disappointing.

COME ON UNITED.

That's a great result considering the form the Blue Scousers have been on, vital 3 points at a vital stage.

Great result. Didn't think that was gonna come, what a foolish tackle from Pienaar. We'll take that, we were no luckier than Arsenal were yesterday.

We better hope that Gary Neville gets fit double-quick, especially if Brown is gonna go. Much as I like to see young local lads doing well, Simpson - who I think has a bit of potential - was a complete and utter liability in the first half and O'Shea, though a bit more solid, doesn't seem to look before he passes the ball at times...

Agreed Neil.

Shame for him giving away a bad tackle after he did so well for setting up Everton's goal.

Ah well who gives a shit we won and thats what matters....I was so nervous for the penalty, didn't doubt Ronaldo but it was all on the line....I think I peed a little haha

Unfortunately, I had to miss today's match so I cannot comment on his performance. But, sounds like you are looking to pick at a sore spot. I SURE hope I'm wrong about that...

The last thing I'll say on this IS this. I don't like him. I have never liked him. He has bags of talent, and is a fine player. But, there is something about him that rubs me the wrong way. I can't put my finger on what it is exactly. I make no apologies for it. To ANYONE!

He played well. Far better than at Anfield. Credit where it is due.

my 2nd stretford end experience was awesome. lots of signing and a great game to go with it.

i thought ronaldo was class today, again. tevez and rooney (once he stopped storming around like a 10 year old) were busy and looked good aswel.

Like Oli says. Credit where it's due. Good job Fergie's selection policy isn't based on 'not being able to put his finger on it'. Words of 'wisdom' there for you. :lol:

We were quite wonky for a while, but i thought the pressure we put on them in the second half deserved the three points.

I do not think we deserved 6 points from Everton this season, but we deserved yesterday's more than we did the win at Goodison. But, you make your own luck right?!

To be honest, I thought O'Shea was even more of a liability in the second half, numerous times giving the ball away and putting us under pressure neadlessly.

Hopefully Rio will be fit again shortly though and Brown can return to right back. If he does leave in the summer then we could do with decent cover for Neville and hopefully we'll be looking for an Evra like player for the right back spot.

It's the strongest squad we've had in ages and a great sign that the potential transfers now are probably for covering the likes of Neville, Vidic and Ferdinand as apposed to trying to find replacements for Keane, Beckham, Scholes and Giggs etc as it looks like Hargreaves, Ronaldo, Anderson and possibly Nani will be more than up to the task.

Yeah, because as we all know, Fergie's selection process has never been anything but perfect...:roll:

Yes, he was a disaster for the first 10 mins he was on, but he improved after that.

Huge 3 points with christmas football and two away games on the horizon.

The performance wasn't the best but we played well enough to deserve 3 points imo.

Ronaldo's first goal was terrific and the mental strength he has shown when taking the penalty just shows how he has matured over the last 2 years.

No need for me to pick at sore spots, I just happen to think there was a mass over reaction to his performance against Liverpool so thought it important to recognise that he had a good game, like others have said - credit where its due.

I actually like Brown and always have - he has over the years recognised his role in a squad and been happy to fulfil that role - I don't know the in's and out's over the current contract negotiations but then i'm guessing only a few will.
