US Open reaction

Day one's awful weather may have disappeared, but it was still a tough day at the office for our US Open hopefuls at Merion.

The day started early, with the likes of Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods having to come back and finish off their first rounds before quickly heading out for their second bash at the Merion challenge.

The course was softened up by all the rain but any talk of a low score have fallen by the wayside by now and Billy Horschel's three-under 67 was the stand-out.

Still, there are 68 players still to complete their second round, including Ian Poulter who is just one shot off the pace.

Phil Mickelson

The five-time runner-up endured a tough day, especially on the greens, but managed to birdie his final hole just before the end of play to grab a share of the lead.

Adam Scott

The Masters champion was left sweating it out to see if he would make the cut after finishing seven-over after two rounds. The cut looks like being at eight-over so he could just sneak in.

Jim Furyk

2003 champion Furyk was decently fancied by some this week, but he is out after coming back at +16 - although he still loved playing at Merion.

Rory McIlroy

The 2011 champion ended his first round badly but battled his way to a level-par second round to match Woods' score of three-over and book a third round with his mate.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
