Well done City, deserved win. Hats off, that's the standard we need to get to for next season. They were class without needing to be incredible today but you sensed they had an extra gear in them. Like we used to. No crying, just accept the challenge of surpassing them.

The season so far:

Exactly as expected. We're better than last year but need some more players and time before Jose trusts the team enough to send them out to destroy direct rivals for the title.

I think most of us expected top three would be the logical progress this year and we seem on track for that. Some performances have been bad recently and I'm not entirely happy, but again, looking back to what I thought would happen at the beginning of the season, we are bang on track.

Two more transfer windows, a third place finish this year and we should be ready to challenge for the title next year. If performances are still like this against the top six next season, if we are still below par for a title challenge, then I might start to moan/ worry/ criticise. But for now, what else did anyone expect?

We have no lb. An average rb.
No left winger or right winger.
No one to put a decent cross in to big rom. Yesterday we didn't have a creative midfielder to link the players up top.
We have 2 average central defenders.
But the positive is we have a world class keeper.
Plus we need an ole gole to come off the bench.
So for me it's back to the drawing board and hope we can finish in the top 4.
We are at least 5 players away from the title.
The sooner pogba comes back the better but with a club like United we shouldn't be depending on one player.

Not sure if any of that is an argument against what I said Leahy, apologies if it's not meant to be! :) Two windows = 5 more players (at least) . So by next season we will either be challenging or I'll be agreeing with the naysayers. As for this season, it's gone exactly as reasonably expected so far when you consider the scale of the job.


3.) 07 Nov 2017 16:09:00
Would be lovely to know what people disagree with rather than just thumbs down. Polite discourse, my fellow humans, we need more of it.

The fact that no football pundit can see that going into the crowd is dangerous and should rightly be a yellow is weird. MOTD show Sterling going in, Shearer says it's ridiculous that that's a yellow card, then they cut to images of the fallout of what going into the crowd encourages - City fans on the pitch, stewards being asked to maintain order and getting it very wrong. The main argument for trying to stop players going into the crowd of course has not happened yet and long may it never happen - when fans rush forwards like that a smaller person or a child runs the risk of being badly injured or worse. It should be a red, not a yellow. Tell me why I'm wrong. I'll listen.

I agree fella. If it's a yellow for taking your shirt off then It's a 100% yellow for going into the crowd. I understand that it's a very emotional thing scoring so late, but these are supposed to be professionals, I'm sure they can manage to celebrate without going in to the crowd. Something bad will happen at some stage, unfortunately, and then they will all be arguing for tougher sanctions. Not the brightest these pundits.

I was watching after the United game the other day and Nobbie Savage arguing with the ex referee about the Fellaini goal. The ref was saying it wasn't offside as there was a deliberate deflection off the defender. Savage was arguing that it wasn't a deliberate touch of the ball and so should have been offside. Now to me if a defender dives in, and it hits him, then it is a 'deliberate' action. He might not have meant to deflect it towards goal, but his intention was to touch the ball to try and block it. If then it goes to an opposition player and he scores it is unlucky but these things happen.

Can't be doing with Nobbie at the best of times, but arguing with a guy on live tv, who has actually refereed professionally and knows the ins and outs, like he did, made him look like a d***, as far as I am concerned. By the rules of the game, the decision was correct. Yes I'd have been gutted if it was the other way round, but if those are the rules then those are the rules.


2.) 28 Aug 2017 13:19:01
Brendan,

I haven't seen that argument but it doesn't matter in the laws of the game if it was deliberate or not so he is talking sh*t anyway.


3.) 28 Aug 2017 15:28:21
Cantana went into the crowd and got 6 months. Where is the justice haha.


4.) 28 Aug 2017 16:32:59
Never understood why they feel the need to take their shirt off or run into the crowd. As RWWD says, it could cause a mass crush. Do we need this in football or any sport? Of course if Carla from coronation. Street felt the need to take her shirt off, then I'm not complaining. 😊.


5.) 28 Aug 2017 16:55:14
So, we can all see it, but I've not seen a single pundit point this glaringly obvious thing out on TV. Bemuses me. Of course, when I said above it had never happened I was talking specifically about in the context of a player going into the crowd in the modern era. Unfortunately mass crushes in general have (obviously) occurred. All the more reason to stop this now.


6.) 28 Aug 2017 19:20:58
Hargreaves said exactly that on saturday evening rwwd.


7.) 28 Aug 2017 20:59:30
Martin Samuel wrote a good piece about it today. Looking for a bit of understanding from players about how police are trying to maintain safety in the ground. As for the stewards, I don't doubt some of them are a little more enthusiastic about stopping opposition players from celebrating with the fans, than their own.


8.) 28 Aug 2017 22:55:32
I didn't see that Ken. Thanks for the info. Should be mainstream view.

I really had no idea Matic was THAT good. Very impressive.

RWWD

1.) 13 Aug 2017 18:57:58
Only his speed is his weakness, but he doesn't rely on speed. However players who don't rely on speed can play well into their 30's. Which is why 29 years old means very little.


2.) 13 Aug 2017 19:06:17
He bossed that game. What a signing and massive mistake it was by Chelsea to sell us exactly what we needed. Totally deserving of MOTM today.


3.) 13 Aug 2017 19:09:51
Sydney, he is more than fast enough. When your brain thinks that fast and you can read the game that well, pace doesn't seem to be much of an issue.


4.) 13 Aug 2017 19:24:42
Angelred - precisely mate. Like Carrick he reads the game well. Positions himself well. He's like 6-7 years younger too.


5.) 13 Aug 2017 19:28:14
Wow just checked. 7 years younger than Carrick. Great attitude and works hard in training. So £40m or whatever the fee will look like the bargain of the century if he can play at this level for five more years.


6.) 13 Aug 2017 19:30:48
I never remember Keane being necessarily quick especially when he was about 29/ 30 but his ability to read the game was 2nd to none.


7.) 13 Aug 2017 19:47:13
You find usually the slower players are the smartest. Great on the ball. Can read the game well. Funny thing is he's not tragically slow either. Probably quicker than Mata and Blind.


8.) 14 Aug 2017 10:01:39
He is very different to Carrick in terms of his ability to dribble and go forward with the ball. He also is the best we have in terms of not being scared of having the ball with opposition players around him and finding a positive pass to release us going forward rather than passing back to the CB's who then kick it up the field.

Phil Neville says he's worried that Smalling and Blind are untested together. They played an entire season as first choice under LVG. Great punditry.

Hey Raconteur, honestly, do you not aspire to be more like that city team we played yesterday?

The predictions of a man named James Ducker
Are obvious even to a sucker
Jose wants to sign
Two players, that's fine
Now bring it on Pep you mother-f.

Is it true that Alan Shearer celebrates his birthday by putting one hand in the air?

I would share mine with Zlatan but Zlatan does not share his birthday with anyone.

Jambon, thanks for this. Why is it more likely we draw some teams than others? Genuine question.

Couldn't agree more Beast. Imagine Pogba in the 90s era with Keane and Scholes in a midfield three! They would have made him into an absolute monster by sheer will power. I love a serious footballer. Smiles are for wimps.

I'm absolutely certain some will look at the possession and shots stats and still interpret that as parking the bus though. Confirmation bias is strong in most fans and people like to see Mourinho derided. Great performance by players and management tonight. Delighted.
