Just caught up with MOTD, I thought all our players played well. Amongst other things that stood out though:

1. Joe Hart, wow, surely he isn't England's goalie any more
2. Anyone else warming to Rafa? No? Just me?
3. City, still not convincing and I think strong teams will bully them.
4. Shearer has become a half cent pundit since he stopped sitting on the fence.
5. Phil Neville, got to love him, is he the most positive person in the world ever?
6. Swansea possibly not as bad as we have thought.
7. Bilic and De Boer have to be worried although after today's debacle, perhaps Wenger will be first to go.

Pretty much agree with everything there mate.
I was saying to my lad yesterday that if this palace squad go down it's the best squad ever to be relegated.


2.) 27 Aug 2017 00:43:07
Phil Neville really annoys me. He's so biased it's unbelievable. Agree with the rest. De Boer is no surprise, he was abysmal at inter. Played some disgraceful football there.

We may have beaten the League leaders 2-0 but my roast carrots were overlooked and I blame Fellaini. He's a disgrace.

Rumours Ed? I could live with Others but Rumours?

{Ed004's Note - This is just hearsay until more sources confirm it}

De Gea made no saves that is not good enough. Get rid.


3.) 16 Apr 2017 21:31:26
I have several witnesses to the carrot issue, but no video ref.

I can confirm Bond Tony's carrots was burnt to cinders.

I've heard that Rooney is not opposed to a move back to Everton as part of the Stones deal, seems like a great idea to me.

AJH

1.) 25 May 2016 13:16:05
And who is going to pay his wages at Everton?


2.) 25 May 2016 13:35:45
Absolutely ridicules.


3.) 25 May 2016 13:57:06
Cant see it, pus I think he will want to get the goalscoring record - 18 months from now maybe.


4.) 25 May 2016 14:26:07
My opinion, great idea, although the wages will be an issue?

Could we not subsidise Rooneys wage along side Everton?


5.) 25 May 2016 14:54:25
Yes Ronnie, let's pay huge wages for someone who no longer plays for us. Great logic?


6.) 25 May 2016 15:00:23
Farha Moshiri?


7.) 25 May 2016 15:06:53
I cannot see that happening in a million years but if Everton can be rumoured to be interested in paying ยฃ40million for Joe Hart then they obviously have some money in the club after being brought?

Still, it's silly season now so a nice rumour to get the ball rolling early doors I suppose. If Jose does come in I fully expect the media to link us with Courtois when DDG moves to Real which they will report and we will also get linked to Hazard at some point despite his supposed fall out with Jose.


8.) 25 May 2016 15:55:34
Mmmmm can't see it Tony๐Ÿ˜.


9.) 25 May 2016 16:07:59
It's the club he supports, he has more money than he can spend already, he may not be first choice next year, it makes perfect sense to me,


10.) 25 May 2016 16:57:43
People do realise Rooney is only on ยฃ150K basic don't they? When he signed his new deal he got insane on target bonuses but I don't see why a similar thing couldn't be worked out at Everton.

I'm sure the likes of Lukaku are on ยฃ100K+.


11.) 25 May 2016 17:14:41
". only on 150K basic. "

13.) 25 May 2016 23:57:46
For the life of me I will never understand the Rooney haters that live on these message boards. Game in game out he's one of our best players and has been for years. For the better part of half a decade there has been a vocal portion of United supporters who seemingly only look at total goals as a judgement on Rooneys contributions. Shameful really but I get satisfaction knowing that for five or six years they've been complaining about Rooney and for just as long they've been proven wrong over and over again. Just embarrassing to have to see these posts all the time.


 

 

10 Sep 2015 12:55:25
Anybody seen the Times this morning? It alleged some senior players went to see LVG to express concerns about his training methods and rigidity. They want more freedom to express themselves. It appears he did not take the feedback well. If true, very interesting.

AJH

1.) 10 Sep 2015 15:04:56
Carrick and Rooney apparently were the ones due to them having captaincy and vice-captaincy. Apparently they were ignored.

The general consensus is that they players want to play more attacking, expansive football and LVG won't let them. They are also displeased at how Rafael was treated and the treatment of the Spanish players in the team.

If this unrest and falling out goes on for long I can see him gone by next summer. I hope he is while Pep and Klopp should be available.


2.) 10 Sep 2015 14:51:27
I think it is a load of rollocks personally.


3.) 10 Sep 2015 15:27:37
It was only a matter of time before players voiced there opinions, I hope LVG and his stubborness doesn't make it personal against them.


4.) 10 Sep 2015 16:19:06
Rooney has just gone up in my estimations.


5.) 10 Sep 2015 16:31:32
I don't think this is true. If it is don't expect Rooney or Carrick to start on saturday. LVG dropped Rivaldo just for asking to play in a more central role, so I can't imagine holding too much sentiment for Rooney or Carrick. Having said that though I think its just tabloid nonsense trying to stir thing up. I doubt the players would question his tactics, he is the manager and its not as if we are struggling massively, the play can be dull, but I think it will improve, fans and players alike need to have patience.


6.) 10 Sep 2015 17:18:56
There is a way of speaking to the manager and I'm sure if there were any concerns it would be done between the captain/vice captain with LVG and not leaked to the media.

If there were some discussions that somehow got out then the media are dramatising as usual just to sell papers. A whiff of anything and most of the rags jump on it.

We all know LVG doesn't take too kindly to players going above their stations. Maybe the Eds can shed some light on it if there is anything at all?


7.) 10 Sep 2015 19:26:32
Hang on, it was in a paper, therefore it's true? Can I just ask every single person on here how reading the papers over the transfer window worked out? They know f all! Pinch of salt I'd say with this story too, probably 1% truth, 99% horse shizzle.


8.) 11 Sep 2015 12:07:14
Senior players talking to the manager! Whatever next.
Surely this is a good thing, the manager talking with senior players about training, etc.
Just the newspapers trying to turn it into a scandal.

Saw an interesting stat this morning that we have signed 4 of the 5 most expensive teenagers ever. Martial, Shaw, Anderson, and Rooney. I think Shaw will prove an astute investment, we have had our money's worth out of Wayne, and sadly Anderson didn't work out. The same article also suggested that Chelsea tried to hijack the Martial move by matching the ridiculous fee. not sure whether that is a sign of his potential or desperation on Chelsea's part.

Reflecting on the window we did some good business and addressed some key areas but rumours in the press suggesting we were pursuing Bale, Ramos, Benzema, Varane, and Muller, all without success are both encouraging and disheartening. Encouraging that we are prepared to bid big for world stars, disheartening that we didn't get any of them and instead spent a enormous amount of money on a 19 year old. let's hope he is more a Ronaldo than a Bellion.

AJH

{Ed002's Note - The article is incorrect. Martial was discussed between Monaco and Chelsea when loan players were being negotiated some weeks ago - and Chelsea would have been willing to pay โ‚ฌ20M - but the asking price was an astonishing โ‚ฌ50M - there was no way Chelsea would pay that for him.}


1.) 07 Sep 2015 00:13:55
Tee hee. I love how frank Ed002 is. Huge respect. I mean really, who would be mad enough to spend โ‚ฌ50m on an unproven teenager???


2.) 07 Sep 2015 09:44:57
A team who has funds to spend and a feeling the player could go on to be worth even more than that? Bit of a gamble but we have the funds to work with so all good.


3.) 08 Sep 2015 06:27:03
GDS, did you not know that it is TeddyShezs money that the club are spending?

Great interviews with Jose where I thought he was brutally honest; they had more passion desire and a better attitude. Given the last few performances I think a sit down and open, honest, and direct discussion is needed along the lines of "what the hell has changed? ".

We have players not playing particularly well but we also have some who do not seem up for it, the first is understandable, the second is not.

Today, I think the debate about Martial or Rashford was answered, not sure what was going on in Martial's head but he was pretty dreadful. Mata was committed but had a poor game. Lukaku got stick on live chat but he never stopped running or trying, nor did Lingard. Young was as steady as ever but we lacked creativity throughout.

Bailly was a loss and then losing Jones left us with carnage at CB. Lindelof may settle but right now he looks way out of his depth.

So all in all a reality check. City look light years ahead of everyone right now, watch their pace and movement and then compare it to ours and the difference is all too evident. However, other than City I think the rest are much of a muchness.

AJH

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with any of that AJH..good post mate..


 

 

14 Oct 2017 19:35:12
We weren't great today and in the second half were pretty shocking. However there were some very odd results today which reflects the impact the international break has had on everyone. Chelsea losing to Palace was a real shock and Arsenal losing, whilst less of a shock, was still probably unexpected. Spurs sneaked a win but what is clear is City are playing a different game to the rest of us right now.

We sit 7 points clear of Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal which is a great position to be in. Spurs are in form but are still 3 points behind us whilst we see City moving ahead. Their record so far is stunning and we can only hope that this purple patch they are having passes soon.

As for our performance today I think Jose should have picked the people who had not played or played only a little. I know we were challenged in central midfield but we had some very tired legs out there; I struggle to think of one of our players who played well (other than DDG) .

A sobering day but as other results show it has not been a normal weekend.

AJH

{Ed004's Note - I thought Valencia, Jones and Matic also played well. But the other results today have put our result into perspective. A draw at Anfield is always a good point during the season}


1.) 14 Oct 2017 19:50:16
Fair point Ed although Jones almost gave a goal away with a slack pass. It's been a bizarre day, we need to put it behind us and quickly move on. There was a point in the second half when Matic got hold of the ball and seemed to want t take control but I thought overall we lacked leadership and it was a niggly display from us.

I also think Liverpool will win a trophy this year. They are clear favourites for the 'rolling around clutching your face like a 6 year older old girl' Cup. Can and Lovren were pathetic. Can wasn't touched and whilst Lovren was, the 15 rolls were a little too much.

We are really missing Pogba, could do with knowing when he will be back.

{Ed004's Note - Apparently Pogba is due back within next 2 weeks. I thought the ref was poor enough today. Some bizarre decisions especially against Young. It seemed they could be as rough as they wanted but if it was the other way around and anfield jeered he gave Liverpool the decision}


2.) 14 Oct 2017 19:51:40
I don't think people are bothered about the result per se, it's more about the manner in which we set out and the execution of the game plan. Personally I am not too bothered about us getting a point simply because it keeps the gap between ourselves and Liverpool to seven points. We were pretty depleted in key areas and I think we had a couple players playing through injury today. But I would have liked us to have a good go today as Liverpool started very shaky too and I just feel we could have gotten more from the game today.


3.) 14 Oct 2017 19:57:39
I thought we had a decent first half, we pressed high and whilst they dominated we looked up for it and had our chances. The second half was a different story, I think at some point Jose decided a point was ok and we were pretty awful. I think we need to shake it off and get back on the horse.


4.) 14 Oct 2017 20:46:43
Yes AJH, we need to beat Huddersfield and get straight back on track.


5.) 14 Oct 2017 20:00:49
I noticed that too ED004, Ashley Young did have some lumps chipped away and seemed to be manhandled and barged in the back quite a few times and got no decisions. The first time he offered the same physicality the referee blew up, very frustrating for a player.


6.) 14 Oct 2017 23:39:50
Ajh. You talk about city having a purple patch. It's quite laughable. Guadiola inherited an excellent squad, but he then went and bought excellent players to play his system. The kind that Barcelona played. He has a plethora of top class midfielders who are exceptionally creative. They are tearing teams apart and I had them to win the league by a ten point margin.
This is not a "purple patch". It is what we're going to see most of the time from them. The demonstrated it against Chelsea.
It makes me sick watching how good they are and wishing we had half the talent and a manager who is so intent on attack. It's going to be a long few years as I can only see them getting better. This is not a purple patch, it'll be the norm.
We can either learn from them and try to build our own attacking side or we can do what we did today and hope they slip up, which they won't.

{Ed025's Note - no argument from me there mate..


7.) 15 Oct 2017 02:53:44
Schmid
Jose won't play the pep way it's not and never has been his style .

The league will be between city and United imo but then I thought that last season .

How many points did you have city winning the league by last year.


8.) 15 Oct 2017 07:11:35
Schmid, I read the first line and knew it was you ๐Ÿ™„.

They started last year like an express train and faded away. Right now they look brilliant but it's still early.


 

 

13 Oct 2017 17:39:09
I'm sorry but I'm not buying this "a draw is a good result" baloney. We have made a storming start and are playing a tea, with a dodgy defence. I know Jose is pragmatic but we need to get at them, they will be nervous as hell about our attacking threat and I would expect Lukaku and Rashford, or Martial, to have a grand old time.

I don't want a draw, I want a win and a statement that we are the real deal. Settling for a draw is a cop out.

AJH

1.) 13 Oct 2017 17:48:02
Amen to that AJH. I have a feeling in my stomach that we will out a few passed them tomorrow.


2.) 13 Oct 2017 17:58:38
Exactly Mate we are better in all aspects at the moment than Liverpool, We need to take a game to them. Form doesn't matter in these kind of matches but this time around we are better and we must win. People keep talking about not being tested yet but Liverpool won against disorganized Arsenal and lost to City, I know they will argue about being a man down, its ok, but they are failing to beat teams which they should.


3.) 13 Oct 2017 18:03:06
I expect us to win too AJH. We have seen over the years this game does not always go with form. I think there are players in our squad who still have a lot to prove. But the good thing is i think they know that and they want to take this chance to proove themselves. I expect high energy all action displays from everybody. And within all the hype and frantic nature of this game our attacking players must remain calm and make the most of whatever chances come their way.
This is an opporrunity to put 10 points between us and to keep the presure on city spurs and chelsea. A win at anfield will be a marker to them.
Keep the crowd quiet give them no encouragement.


4.) 13 Oct 2017 19:26:13
I donโ€™t think we should play for a draw and donโ€™t want us to draw but I donโ€™t think either team would be disappointed with a draw at the moment, it would be a better result for us than for them though.


5.) 13 Oct 2017 19:39:27
I wouldn't take a draw, but I do expect Liverpool to play exceptionally well tomorrow. They love playing against the big teams.


6.) 13 Oct 2017 23:54:05
We don't want to settle for a draw. No United team should. But I don't think people are giving Liverpool enough credit. They'll be up for it and we'll do well to get a draw. We've had a good start but Stoke showed we're not the finished article. The atmosphere at anfield will be hostile and they'll be aware that if they lose then effectively their season is over. I think a draw will be a good result.


7.) 14 Oct 2017 07:50:52
I think we all respect Gary Neville as a good pundit. And even he thinks we'll struggle. The misplaced confidence on here is bordering on the ridiculous. Liverpool are no pushover. I can bet that mourinho recognises this and will be very cautious with his tactics and rightly so.
If pogba and Fellaini (can't believe I'm saying this! ) Were fit, then we would have stood a better chance.
A win will be an amazing result but a draw or even a Liverpool win will be more likely.


 

 

01 Oct 2017 19:26:05
Reading the other pages Chelsea fans are well hacked off about Conte's approach to the City game whilst the red and blue of Merseyside are both mentioning Ancelotti. I
can't believe the Liverpool fans feel that way already, it's been a less than stellar start but it's still very early. However, Everton have been a surprise, they look very poor and whilst they lost Lukaku they did buy a few.

It's been a very interesting start this year, Burnley punching well above their weight so far but the top of the table looks good. A number of us had De Boer down as first to be sacked but take your pick as to who is next. Koeman looks vulnerable as does Shakespeare with Clement and Howe also under pressure.

If we beat Liverpool (which we should) then the howls about Klopp will just get louder, come on Jose, let's get at them. I expect a couple more Managers will have gone by Christmas, take your pick which ones.

AJH

1.) 01 Oct 2017 20:00:57
Liverpool were always going to struggle. They never sorted their issues and they don't have a good enough squad to deal with a heavy fixture schedule.

Everton have signed many players and they must gel. Also not signing a top striker was a huge mistake. Also taking Rooney may have been a mistake too.


2.) 01 Oct 2017 20:03:01
Yes tony! Get at them on 14th.


3.) 01 Oct 2017 20:50:44
Everton are going to take time, but koeman has been very negative so far. Even if he does manage to start getting points, I can't imagine he'll play attractive football.

Liverpool haven't started well but when you watch them, you always feel like they can score. A couple of wins and they're right back in the mix.

I hope Shakespeare goes next. Just so he knows how Ranieri felt.


4.) 02 Oct 2017 00:14:23
Personally i'd love to see us but a couple of nails in klopps coffin he is a complete bluffer and bufoon that squad would do so much better under someone like anchelotti.
Everton look all over the place. Awful defence and no attack.


5.) 02 Oct 2017 05:10:39
I think Koeman will be next now that ancelloti is available. I hope palace go down as any club and the idiot who runs it that sacks 4 or 5 managers in 9 months deserves to go down. Hodgson is such a poor manager and he will be sacked sooner or later too.


6.) 02 Oct 2017 09:47:20
Everton did spend a lot of money in the summer but when you look at their team they remind me a little of us in LvG's first season. Yes there is quality there but they have a total lack of pace right throughout the team. one of Williams and Jagielka always playing makes it difficult for them to play a high line, there defense having to sit deeper means the midfield has to sit deeper or expose space between the lines that in turn means either the forward line has to play deeper or risk being isolated. The forward line sitting deeper wouldn't be such an issue if there was pace in the forward line meaning they could spring counters quickly and make up that space between them and the goal. But they don't have ant pace in their forward line. That is why they look so blunt going forward, add to that several losses and poor performances that have no doubt knocked their confidence means they are in a real sticky situation. I'm not sure how they are going to get themselves out of it, sacking the manager will not add any pace to the team which is so sorely lacking.


7.) 02 Oct 2017 10:58:52
Klopp to stay. I donโ€™t want him sacked. In my opinion heโ€™s doing a great job for Liverpool. All hail Klopp ;) .


8.) 02 Oct 2017 14:03:51
Mad Hatter youโ€™re really mad! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
But I agree with you ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.


9.) 02 Oct 2017 14:30:31
I don't want klopp sacking either. He's doing brilliantly. Fails to sign a centre back then wastes forty million on the ox. Genius.


10.) 02 Oct 2017 16:25:32
Every time I see Koeman, and how he sets his teams out, it just reminds me of LVG. (shudder) My brother-in-law is a die-hard Toffee, and a forgiving one at that, but even he thinks Koeman is on borrowed time. Ashley Williams, so good for Wales, looks a complete liability at club level.


11.) 02 Oct 2017 19:08:40
Koeman reminds me of Slimer from Ghostbusters. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Oh and Avram Grant is Baron Von Greenback in disguise.


12.) 02 Oct 2017 19:14:00
i Was surprised when Koeman bought Williams. His best had gone. Distinctively average, still fits into the Everton team nicely.


13.) 02 Oct 2017 20:50:45
I don't think any of the real Liverpool supporters are screaming for Klopp to be sacked, but the "Keyboard warrior forum fans" probably do. can't really blame the manager for defenders who can't kick a ball rolling towards him, defenders who pass the ball straight to a opponent or a goalkeeper that needs 3 tries to catch a floating cross. But if he can't get a new cb in january or in the summer, their is something really really wrong.


14.) 02 Oct 2017 21:08:28
Nah he was told at the start of the window that vvd wasn't for sale. Shouldn't have faffed around and gone for someone else. Ox was a poor signing.


15.) 02 Oct 2017 21:33:22
Yeah well i don't think anyone disagree that AOC is a waste of money, but what manager hits with all his buys? And it was also clearly a panic buy, since they couldn't land any of their first choice targets. And its easy to scream for the managers head when the team is not winning every match, but who should they get that can do a better job? Atleast i am able to watch my team play, and still see entertaining football matches. Not everyone can say the same :D.


16.) 02 Oct 2017 22:10:19
Yeah our goals going in are awful to watch.


17.) 02 Oct 2017 23:08:31
Benitez just might end up at Everton! If Koeman gets his marching orders and klopp might be looking to escape to Bayern if some bookies have their info correct ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†.


 

 

01 Oct 2017 07:28:14
If results go as on expected today then the top 6 will be the 6 most of us expected albeit Chelsea will only be 5th. I think the games between the top teams could determine who finishes where and I hope that for the most part we take it to them when we play them. Chelsea seemed to set up defensively yesterday and whilst it limited the threat they still lost.

I look at City, Chelsea, Liverpool and I think we can cause them real problems, can't wait for the games to roll around.

AJH

1.) 01 Oct 2017 08:00:47
I agree with that AJH. I think we can have any of the top teams.

Even watching the game yesterday and how city controlled it, I still think we will create many more problems against them.


2.) 01 Oct 2017 09:09:15
As much as it pains me to say it (as a Liverpool fan) - You are looking pretty special. You've battered everybody you've played since Basel so credit where credit is due. Unfortunately for you lot though, your first loss will come against us :) lol but to be honest right now, I'd take a draw.


3.) 01 Oct 2017 12:57:31
Tony

I picked city to win the league with us finishing second and spurs and chelsea to fill in the top 4 and still believe that will be the way it finishes. I think our first 11 is good enough to win against any first 11 but don't believe we have the bench to replace key players if they get injured i. e. pogba, Likaku.

Whilst in games like yesterday we were just fine i think against the likes of chelsea and city especially away from home we need our best to get a result. I think we are one summer away from ticking all the boxes.


4.) 01 Oct 2017 13:17:50
Bang on x. Although i put us down to win as i could never think otherwise personally. Keeping key players fit where our replacements are sub standard against the best teams will be the key for us. A bit of luck in key moments would also help. City look good too but its only 7 games. So many things can hapoen.


5.) 01 Oct 2017 15:03:25
Hate to say it but City are much better than us at the moment apart from centre backs and goal keeper. And those positions they aren't much worse. They are playing and pressing with pace and as a team. Shearer highlighted it on MOTD. I still think we have a way to go but we are on our way.


6.) 01 Oct 2017 15:53:16
Ajh, of course we can anyone trouble. We should. But as I've said all along, City are looking excellent and their defence is their attack. The system Pep is playing is a repeat of Barcelona days. They are pressing at every opportunity and have high possession stats. It's easy to say we can hurt them, but we need to get the ball off them first. I also think the two centre backs are gelling very well and as I said months ago, their GK will be one of the best in 3 years time. I was impressed the way they controlled Hazard. Against us, he creates havoc and has been a thorn in our side.
Hope we can go to our competitors and put up a show. We have the players to hurt teams, but we need brave tactics and system to beat them.
We'll see how far we've come when we play the Scousers at Anfield.


7.) 01 Oct 2017 17:10:49
Ken

City have demolished Liverpool and took 3 points away at Chelsea. I would say their points total whilst the same as ours is against much better opposition. I would need to see how we go against a couple of top 6 team to make up my mind on how good we are.

I agree x. Only played bottom half teams allbeit demolishing them. Our best 11 is very good but smalling young blind fellaini darmian rojo have been found iut over last few years against the bettet teams so if we have to rely on them to start 20 plus games a season we will find it tough.
Fellaini looks good against the weaker teams imo he gets exposed when playing against fast technical players but his attitude is terrific. He looks confidant and had the managers faith.
Matic is the fulcrum for how the team plays but him and fellaini in there does slow us down imo.

Ken
Jose seems to rate fellaini even if you don't.
No team is perfect and every team will struggle with injuries to there top players not sure why you keep making the same obvious point .
You argued in the summer it was the worse squad in 20 year that's maybe why, but it's looking pretty good at the moment .
By the way smalling and young have both won the epl before.

Young blind rojo darmian.
How many long term injuries would we have to have for them 4 in particular to start 20 plus games?
Rojo won't even be back until next year but if bailly Jones smalling lindelof all get long term injuries there is a chance the Argentine international might play a few this season .
How would city look with 4 cbs out?
Mendy is out for 6 month and they have Delph at lb .

Fellaini will play more than 20 games imo although with Herrera matic pogba and Carrick maybe not .
But the bottom line is every team is better with a fully fit squad and a bit weaker with a number of injuries.

None of them are good enough for a permanent place in a first choice MU side IMO, however they are great back-up players. I mean many teams would love those players as their first team players. Luckily we can afford top wages so we can have decent back-up players. But I cannot complain guys. We are so lucky we didn't sell Fellaini, we are very short on midfielders. Could have done with Perreira staying put too.

Jred i said that jose took over the worst performing squad in 20 years which he did he has briught in 7 and cganged half the starting team so well on our way to success.

The shiny new players approach is one issue but my biggest beef is the sweeping generalisations people make about our players. Blind, Fellaini, Darmian have all had their turns, I think they all have something to contribute and all seem pretty committed to the cause.

I think we have a great team spirit right now and we seem to have momentum, sometimes personalities have a big part to play in success.

Sigh, please tell me when Blind me was a liability last season, he was caught out of position a couple of times I can remember. People make sweeping statements what check are frankly dumb. I get some don't like him, some think he is average, everyone is entitled to their opinions on. I'm not saying he should be a regular starter but 'often a liability' is simply not true.

Ed, on behalf of ken I'd like to say a tremendous thank you for all your hard work in pulling no this together, it is a stupendous effort.

I think there may be some interesting results today. Chelsea are struggling and Watford are stronger away from home so that looks tasty. I hope we have had a kick up the jacksy and return to free flowing ways but I have to disagree with 666, I, th No Burnley will get hammered.

Really looking forward to the Spurs Liverpool game tomorrow, whatever the score I am guessing it will be entertaining.

And I'm not sure we can count Shaw as a loss right now.

Everyone has their opinions but I wouldn't swap Mata for Ozil, Mata should get a proper run again.

GDS, I have enjoyed many of our games and we have created a lot of chances. I just struggle to see how we can go from being so damn good to so average so quickly. As I said previously there were some very odd results and performances after the international break and as is always the case on here, it is is to take a very short term view, i. e. the last game only.

I'm just still not convinced about Jose. I guess for me it's a bit like Rooney, I just didn't like the bloke and try as I might, I can't warm to Jose. Apparently he's warm, compassionate and lovely in private but hid public persona and comments are bloody annoying.
