Hi guys,

Sorry been away for a while had some family stuff to sort out (still is not all sorted as of yet).

What a great result at the weekend hey? taking the first half away from the post the second was decent, these games have always been hard to manage, and that's now 3 in a row we have now dispatched against Liverpool without to much fuss, does that say more about them or us, I guess that's in the eyes of the fans?

Seeing Blind excelling in the CB role is really good to see too, I think that's 2 motm's in 5 games for him now.
In all games except Swansea he has looked the business imo, he has the football brain to keep himself in position and not be done for speed, and the passing ability to bring it out from the back.

Shaw is improving every game too and along with Darmian I think we have 2 very very good fullbacks.

Smalling is maybe now showing signs of kicking on although there is still that lingering thought in the back of my head that this could just be good form and not the progression we hoped for, but I am feeling more and more confident with him in the team over the last 6 months.

Basti was a real calming influence on the team, and Carrick gave everyone a gentle reminder that he still has a big role to play for us too.

Herrera is brilliant and I hope that he has now cemented his place in the starting 11 for the foreseeable future.

Mata and Depay seem to be the most at risk in this team atm, Mata just doesn't seem to thrive on the RW and seems to wonder off into the middle to much and its only Darmian's intelligence of knowing when to go and stay that has not seen this area exposed me thinks.

Depay will improve that I have no doubt of, he seems to be trying a bit to hard at the minute to impress and i'm sure once a bit of form comes his way he will flourish.

I'm so made up or Martial, the boy had all the pressure on his shoulders for having the audacity to force united to pay £36m (at least) for him.
I hope this will be the start of something quite amusing for the next few years after some of the stuff I have seen the press writing about him.

All in all we done what was expected and beat them. Next in the prem is a real test in Southampton away, this has always been a bogey ground for us but I hope we continue our winning ways.

{Ed007's Note - Hopefully you get whatever the problems are sorted out, take care buddy.}

Mata needs to play in the number 10 role and felliani should never start a game especially as a striker.

I agree mate , especially about Daley Blind. And even the fact that he struggled against Swansea , I can guarantee everyone on here that Gomis will give many "big name" centre backs a torid time this season.
He is a big guy , very fast , very direct and very strong. Of course , he will not be on top form every week , but when he is the very best CB's in the league will have their hands full.
