Manchester United 17/18


#541

Lucky bot to be sent off, disgraceful refereeing


#542

Great day, always great to see the murderers sent packing


#543

What did he do?


#544

He’s a gas man.


#545

The only man who understands the clubs current position. A realist. He is the man who can resurrect the club. But he needs time and patience.


#546

And an FA Cup.


#547

Winning the 1990 FA Cup saved Fergie’s job . The FA Cup can be a springboard for Jose and Man United .


#548

Absolutely. And proper financial backing as well.

Barney Ronay in today’s Guardian

“Once, and once only, Fellaini found himself in space in a forward position, taking a return pass from Jesse Lingard and hammering a shot in the general direction of Sergio Rico’s goal with all the refined finishing instinct of a man punting a medicine ball through a swamp.”

:laughing:

The win against Liverpool banked Jose some good will - talks of schooling Klopp and all that lark — Two hoof balls exploited a very poorly regarded Liverpool defence - he then played all 11 players behind the ball – grand he got the 3 points but when that performance was almost echoed at home to a piss poor Sevilla in a tie to get through to the last 8 of the Champions League – there is no excuse for that – Liverpool hat off — that’s simply not good enough for a club like Manchester United — Liverpool hat back on ---- I hope he sticks around for a long time.

It was a master stroke from George Klopp to lull Mourinho and Man U into a false sense of security last Saturday. He’s mugged them off good and proper.


#553

The passion from Graeme Souness and @Robert_Emmet on the failings of Man Yoo is very heartening to see. Last night cut them deeply.


#554

That’s a bit unfair. It was a decent shot from a very tough angle off his weaker foot after he had made the chance himself with a decent 1-2. Nobody would have complained if it was Rashford hitting it


#555

I believe some united fans placed a win over the third place team in the Premier League, over a win in the knockout stages of the Champions League.


#556

They judge themselves against Liverpool


#557

Closing the gap with man city to 13 points albeit for 48 hours is worthy of celebration.


#558

George Hamilton and Ronnie Whelan.


#559

George was never much of a midfielder


#560

And Ronnie was never much of a co-commentator.
