comment on the article

The result may stay the same but the performances are getting better and better.
Kuszcack: 8
Assured performance, as if hes been playing in goal in the champions league for a long while
O' Shea: 5
Possibly the weakest performer, right back may be the weakest of the 11 posiitions he can play in.
Vidic: 7
Solid as ever
Ferdinand: 7
As with Vidic
Evra: 8
Great adventure going forward, solid at the back
Nani: First half 6, Second half 9
Brilliant second half from the youngster, finally starting to look like the player we thought we were buying.
Carrick: 5
Anonymous, tried to run things but couldnt get a foothold.
Scholes: 5
Again, below his high standards
Ronaldo:
No real impact, unlucky to be offside for the cheekiest goal since pobrsky against barnsly, but defended capably and was always a threat
Saha: 6
Good shot with weaker foot in first half, passing a little off
Rooney: 8
Match winning goal from a match winning player, tenacious display

Subs:
Tevez: 6
Good work rate, good shot, not enough time to get involved in the game
Giggs
Anderson

Held on a bit at the end, bit too confident at one nil i thought, but european 1-0s tend to have drama late on. With Sporting winning at Kiev, group F seems Uniteds for the taking.

Nani/Ronaldo - Ronaldo/Nani They are always the best...! Rooney goal is 30% from him and 70% from Nani!

good performance and good result overall for manutd. to be fair to roma they played very well and should have taken their chance in the second chance but united also missed few.

and great to see nani finally putting a good creative performance. now he needs a consistent run in the side. he and ronaldo can rule the wings. but i am still not convinced about the midfield. scholes was again offcolour and same was carrick. we needed hargreaves here for that energy and bite with scholes and carrick getting chance with him in each half. ans defence as usual was a rock supremely led by ferdinand.

it was a decent game but Roma should easily scored 2 goals
Rooney's goal was class
from an Arsenal man

Im a Man Utd fan and i think Nani performence last night was useless, Im starting to think he wasn't a great buy for United, Anderson and Tevez looked good when they came on

why do people keep slagging off Nani and Andersons performances, they are kids they are new to the team and new to the country give them a break, Jaap Stams first season at manu was terrible and as soon as he settled he was the best defender in the league, Henry first season at Arsenal was awful then went on to be the best striker in the league, give the kids time to settle in and as per usual united playing poor by their standards and still grinding out the results COME ON UNITED!!!

Was actually at the game on Tuesday. And i don't know how alot of people are saying Nani played well.

Yes, he had loads of possession but he kept giving the ball away.

Thought Rio was superb in defence, and Scholes was solid in midfield. Rooney was quiet apart from the goal, as well as Ronaldo. Tevez looked really good when he came on and Anderson showed glimpses that he might actually be quality.
