The thing that worries me is that nobody came in, apparently the club were looking at Fellaini all summer, right up to the last week. Did they really think we could do without? Worrying!
I just saw some ratings, they said about Mikel.. "The Nigerian's passing from deep was poor, only emphasised by his part in Juventus' equaliser. Still has not progressed to the required level for this team."
You don't say!
