Ratings v Rovers

Ratings v Rovers

Steve Harper - 7 - Some cracking stops in both halves.

Habib Beye - 6 - Tempted to award him an extra mark for throttling Pedersen.

Steven Taylor - 5 - Struggled, overshadowed by Faye, and made dodgy clearances.

Abdoullaye Faye - 6 - Half decent and nearly got a goal from a set play.

Jose Enrique - 7 - Looked tidy all day and gave us some balance.

James Milner - 7 - Tried hard, got the sponsors` MOTM which is always a worry.

Joey Barton - 5 - Shite bar a couple of balls to Owen. Runs like he wears diving boots.

Nicky Butt - 6 - Battled hard but knocks and the pace of the game seems to be showing now.

Damien Duff - 4- Rank. No pace, no confidence, no final ball, plays everything about 2 seconds too late.

Michael Owen - 5 - Could have been a 9 on another day if he took his chances.

Alan Smith - 5 - No goal threat again. Looked better in midfield which is always a worry.

Because the fat ******** is hibernating until late March, just like how he used to with your lot.
