Can`t afford to drop points like this
3 points lost to Arsenal, 2 points dropped yesterday to Reading, and United now 3rd in the table. Although a better start than last season experience suggests that if you give Chelsea too much of a head start then it`s nigh impossible to overtake them. Early days but not looking good for Ferguson`s men.
Yesterday`s team was almost at full strength, even though Saha only came on as substitute and Giggs is out injured. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came on as sub in the 2nd half but failed to dent the Reading defence. The finishing of United was poor and without the goals we all know that success only comes through scoring.
