So, by the looks of things we have Di Maria. Not a bad player to have. But our main weakness at the moment, I would say, is in defence. We have a good attack, we actually have the makings of a good midfield again. But our defenders are average. We still need to see how Rojo will change that, of course.
I kind of get the feeling Di Maria is being signed because the fans want to see a big name signing, not necessarily because he's a player we actually need. I'm not going to complain about having great players at the club - having lots of options of capable players is the best kind of problem to have - but the money needs to go to the weaker areas, surely?

I don't know about that, from what I've read mistakes caused two goals. That was a defence playing together for the first time, with two new signings, and by the sound of it that showed.
I can think of one instance where lovren and moreno perhaps could have reacted faster, but my first thought when I saw it live was more like "good lord jovetic was on that like lighting"
the second goal definitely found jovetic unmarked at the back post with skrtle and johnson nowhere to be found, but that was after a city move of about 1000 passes pulling the whole liverpool team all over the pitch, capped off by a wonderfully deceptive backheel by jovetic that fooled just about everybody in the grounds.. then he preceded to be on the end of the incoming cross..
I dunno man.. jovetic came to play yesterday. he was getting goals no matter what

Di María: "United are the only club I would have left Real Madrid for."
OK, I like the general tone, but let's not kid ourselves, shall we? Whatever, it's a good signing for us. It shows we've still got money, still got the ability to attract big names, and of course he'll be the first decent winger we've had since Valencia's leg went all Bussty.
Hopefully this'll edge people like Vidal into joining us.
