Crossgate went from embarrassment to salvation to bitter disappointment for Manchester United.
Manchester United attempted a staggering amount of crosses on Sunday (81) in what amounted to a 2-2 draw with last-placed Fulham on Sunday.
United scored twice in a three-minute span to take a late lead and what appeared to be a vital three points. Fulham's Darren Bent played spoiler and scored a last-ditch equaliser in added time to pile on United's misery.
The criticism piled on under-fire manager David Moyes after (another) disappointing result for the reigning champions.

Well… at least they’ve still got that cross differential.— Bleacher Report UK (@br_uk) February 9, 2014
Fair play to Alex Ferguson for wanting Moyes to take over. None of us want to be replaced by someone who can do our job better than we can.— Huw G (@ed_son) February 9, 2014
