If only Rashford was any good he might have scored a few tonight, eh Shan πŸ˜‰.

GDS2

{Ed007's Note - I don't think Burton Albion could afford Rashford's wages but he'll have caught a few Championship teams' eye tonight.}


1.) 21 Sep 2017 03:16:14
Didn't watch the match yesterday but I am glad for the lad. Hope he continues to give this sort of performance against teams that people might have heard of outside of Burton. Cheers!


2.) 21 Sep 2017 04:09:01
Cheeky :P
I can't believe we have Rashford, Martial and Lukaku in hot goalscoring form.
And Zlatan who also scores for fun.
We are definitely winning something this year.
How awesome would it be if Rashford puts Lukaku out of the team and starts ahead of him? Wouldn't bet against him if he keeps improving.


3.) 21 Sep 2017 05:31:18
That's 23 goals in 7 games scoring 4 times on 4 occasions. I struggle to remember when we last did that.


4.) 21 Sep 2017 06:56:05
We did AJH. In LVG Era.
Ooopsss sorry I was sleeping at that times watching games. So I assumed it. Lolsss.

Just wanted to say something on the Zlatan deal, I know people have made their mind up either way and I know the people who have will still support him on the pitch. I am happy we signed him, he is somewhat of an enigma and I don't really see many negatives to it as long as he isn't playing instead of players who are in form.

One thing I wanted to point out is that people are saying the style of play is better without him, but is that because of the striker or is that because Matic being there is allowing us to attack in more numbers meaning we have more options when we get forward. Pogba for example looks like a different player.

Lukaku touched the ball about 20 times against Swansea, was it really his contribution that made us play the way we did in the last 10 minutes of that game? I am happy with Lukaku so far, he is a great finisher, but if the goals dried up for a spell many on here will be on his back saying he doesn't do enough for the team.

I think it is too early in the season to really tell, maybe Zlatan will look a better player with the extra numbers we are attacking in getting in around him, he is certainly clever enough to bring others into the game. People blaming Zlatan for some of the poor performances last season do have a point, in some games he did seem to be the issue, but in many games he definitely wasn't. We played ok after his injury but we were hardly sending shockwaves around the world with our performances like we are now.

In 2-3 months time when we have played 2 games a week and the squad has been used we will know how good this signing is, until then let's just see how it goes rather than deciding already that it is a 'step backwards'. Jose seems to know what he is doing to me so I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one for now and see how we go.

GDS2

1.) 25 Aug 2017 11:33:53
GDS what the hell are you talking about! Mourinho hasn't got a clue what he's doing and signing Zlatan only confirms one thing that we will be in a relegation battle it's as simple as that.

Seriously though don't talk sense on here it's frowned upon.


2.) 25 Aug 2017 11:33:54
GDS2 - totally agree mate.

We played exceptionally well against West Ham as a team. However the two other games I have watched we were generally like last season, pretty much playing how we did with Zlatan. Those were the Swansea and Real Madrid games.

Lukaku's movement hasn't stood out yet, his role in games has been limited, he has started pretty much exactly how Zlatan started. I need to see more games to make a decision especially a decision on whether we have turned a real corner with the way we play.

Matic has looked very good (looked a bit slow against Swansea), but we have played 2 weak teams and the start of the season is always a bit of a lottery because of varying levels of fitness and new players taking time to settle etc. I am obviously happy with our start, and West Ham was brilliant to watch. But we have had 5 years of false dawns and spending Β£100m-Β£200m every summer is going to bring natural improvements to any team short term - injected talent will see instant improvement.

So I'd take your Ibra/ Lukaku point and pull it further to the team as a whole. Next game will be very revealing as Leicester are better than the teams we have played so far and that Swansea performance showed a regression for me so it's important we lift it again. IMO we still don't know how to play with one striker, they are often too isolated whether it's Falcao, RVP, Rooney, Zlatan, Rashford or Lukaku, this needs working on.


3.) 25 Aug 2017 12:51:58
He comes deep for the ball too often occupying the space the likes or miki and Pogba want to be in.


4.) 25 Aug 2017 12:58:10
Good post GDS.

I agree it is Matic who has made more of a difference to our style of play than Lukaku.

When Lukaku is on a run of form there is no stopping him. But he often has spells (like many strikers) when the goals dry up and he looks short on confidence. Zlatan isn't a bad option to have when this happens.

Also one thing we have lacked the last few years is having options on the bench who can get a goal. Throwing Zlatan on for the last 20 mins is a great option to have.

He won't start every game but later in the season with injuries and 2 or 3 games a week etc he will be needed.

I can see only positives from re-signing him.


5.) 25 Aug 2017 13:21:48
GDS, good point. The counter argument is that Lukaku's movement opens up the space for the others; defenders have to move with him πŸ˜€.


6.) 25 Aug 2017 13:26:42
"Lukaku touched the ball about 20 times against Swansea, was it really his contribution that made us play the way we did in the last 10 minutes of that game? "

Yes, it was his contribution because he played as an out and out striker making runs and stretching the defence. He is happy to have fewer touches if they're touches that count, and will spend most of his time forcing the centre backs to follow him around the forward line.

In contrast, Zlatan needs the ball, and will drop deeper and deeper to get it. No doubting that Zlatan is a world class player, but he isn't what we need in a striker.


7.) 25 Aug 2017 13:43:03
Tony / Stand / Danny,

As I said some people have made their mind up, I just wanted to give an opposite side to it as to why it could work with Zlatan now we have other players playing well around him. I haven't made my mind up yet as in my opinion it is impossible to know how Zlatan will fit into the current set up because it is different from last year and not just because of Lukaku.

I fully agree that Lukaku has been stretching the defence and creating more space, I said on Saturday I would be happy if he touches the ball twice a game and scores 2 goals, but there is more than one way to skin a cat. This way of playing has worked so far against 2 mediocre / poor teams but when teams work us out they will plan for how we played in those 2 games and wouldn't it be great to have a top player to bring in to play a different way. Managers planning in the week won't know which United are turning up, that can only be a good thing.

Lukaku has always been great at scoring against the lesser teams, Zlatan has always been great at scoring big goals in important games, I am hoping some of you are eating your words when he smashes in some last minute winners in some big games, which as we all can't disagree with, he is more than capable of doing.


8.) 25 Aug 2017 13:53:53
Think jose disagrees Danny but maybe we should bow to your greater knowledge and experience. how are you doing on the titles won front in your managerial career? 😁😁😁
Great post gds.
If he makes a positive contribution on and off the pitch then that's all that matters.
He was the only prem player selected in the top 10 in europe last season. Selection was by all the the coaches in europe so Danny i think you need to convince the football fraternity right across europe as most of the people who know seem to think otherwise.


9.) 25 Aug 2017 17:13:23
The whole attacking unit has looked better with out ibra .
Jose looks like he has done a mate a favour prob won't be fully fit till xmas don't expect ibra to play much to be honest not good enough the question is can his ego take it?


10.) 25 Aug 2017 17:18:51
Ah Ken, Jose the omnipotent. Just talk me through his last season at Chelsea again. I like what I'm seeing from Jose but it doesn't mean we can't debate some of his decisions.


11.) 25 Aug 2017 17:28:40
Post of the year jred. ' looks like Jose did a mate a favour' comedy goldπŸ˜‚.

{Ed001's Note - why is that funny? It would not be the first time it has happened at United. Bebe ring any bells?}


12.) 25 Aug 2017 18:19:10
I didn't realise that this was the new board for uncritical Jose worship, can Ken be the ed for it?

I don't know what's so confusing about saying that Zlatan is not what we need. Last season Zlatan was great, but most of our other attacking players struggled because the way he plays doesn't compliment them. Our team plays better when they have striker creating space in the final third by pushing the CBs deeper. It also gives players like Pogba the chance to pick out passes in behind. With Zlatan you get a very static player who likes to drop deep, so the cbs can push up and help close off space in the middle. It's not rocket science, and fairly obvious what the biggest difference has been this season so far.

If Zlatan was signed to be an impact sub, I have no problem. But I just don't see him being happy with anything other than starting the big games.


13.) 25 Aug 2017 18:27:47
Of course we can debate any of his decisions that's what we are here for. Sarcasm does not always come across in text.

Of course it happens ed i mean moyes gave rooney a bumber contract but resigning a 20 goal plus striker on half his previous salary i think the club should be delighted.

{Ed001's Note - one that has caused problems with young players and when his signing will come at the expense of their chances of first team football? Not sure I see why you would be delighted about that personally. If it was me I would rather Rashford, Martial and other youngsters got any of the gametime he will get.}


14.) 25 Aug 2017 20:36:04
I would get too excited about the half his salary line when the club know that the player is unlikely to feature for the first half of the season. So it's more like Zlatan will earn the same wage he earned last season for the months he will play, and the club have agreed to pay for his rehabilitation.


15.) 25 Aug 2017 20:53:59
Totally disagree ed i'd rather have ibra up front than martial this season if lukaku were to be injured.

{Ed001's Note - ok, each to their own. May as well sell the lad then if you are not going to play him until he is the finished article as he will never get there.}


16.) 25 Aug 2017 22:58:47
Id keep rash and i'd have been happy to loan martial for a season to the likes of inter or monaco to be honest ed. I think he will get more game time there and come back a more mature player and person.
I think if we are playing 1 up front then there ibra is a better and higher scoring replacement for lukaku than martial or rashford.
Some on here feel ibra slowed our play and i can see that but look at the goals scored when ibra was out of the team they were much less and neither rash or martial did nearly enough to replace zlatans goals.


17.) 26 Aug 2017 06:33:20
To be honest none of us know what part ibra will play by the sounds of it he won't be match fit until the second half of the season and imagine we won't renew his contract thereafter so how much will he really harm the rashfords and martials chances besides they play more on the wings than up top and I can guarantee one thing ibra won't play there.


 

 

13 Aug 2017 18:46:21
Can only echo what everybody else is saying (even Beast! ), brilliant performance today, let's not get carried away but we look a much better, faster team this season and we have a striker who will score 30 goals in the league in my opinion.

I do wonder if Jackson still doesn't mind that they sold us a player that we so desperately needed in our midfield. I am guessing that isn't how Matic played most of last season but wow if he plays like he has in his first two games we are in for some good times. Looks like he has been there for years, should only get better.

GDS2

1.) 13 Aug 2017 18:54:41
I can only echo your echo GDS but what I will say is Jackson always said he was disappointed Chelsea sold Matic to us but anyway less of that.

What a brilliant performance Matic has completely changed the way we play arguably the most important signing this window.


2.) 13 Aug 2017 18:58:26
I agree GDS, he seems to be playing a different role for us than he did at Chelsea. Not sure where this leaves Herrera but after a 4-0 win I'm not really bothered right now πŸ˜€.


3.) 13 Aug 2017 19:14:59
If we bring in rose or aurier or both we will be a force to be reckoned with.


4.) 13 Aug 2017 19:16:01
Herrera will play in tighter games with Matic sitting. He'll get plenty of game time.


5.) 13 Aug 2017 19:30:11
Bring Aurier in to rotate with Valencia and get a fit and firing Shaw and we will be massively better than we was today and we was brilliant today roll on Saturday.

{Ed004's Note - We were fantastic today but I think Aurier will be needed to cover and most likely replace Valencia}


6.) 13 Aug 2017 19:33:47
Leahy
Like lindelof .


7.) 13 Aug 2017 20:21:16
Not Herrera's biggest fan myself so don't mind too much if he isn't an automatic first choice. I know I get pelters for that opinion as he was player of the season last season and played well, I just don't think he is at the top top level that we will need to take us to the next level.


8.) 13 Aug 2017 20:53:11
GDS, there are a number of posters who I respect greatly and you're one of them, fair play that you say what you think and don't give a stuff how people react, top man.


 

 

25 Jul 2017 22:37:23
So I've just read down the page and it only seems right to say it to everyone on here.

Welcome to silly season!

What has happened to everyone? A week or so without a signing and everyone has gone stark raving mad. You would think Jose had come out and said he is extremely happy with the squad and wants no more signings πŸ˜‚.

GDS2

1.) 26 Jul 2017 00:28:14
Patience is a virtue. i'm not sure if perisic is first choice so who are we waiting for?


2.) 26 Jul 2017 07:49:35
Cough cough, not everyone.


3.) 26 Jul 2017 09:25:50
Every player we are linked to suddenly becomes world-class every player rumoured to be leaving is suddenly crap.
We will get the players we need, Jose has said he is happy with the squad .1 more in maybe 2 roll on next season.


 

 

15 Jun 2017 10:20:14
Question for MAZE,

I see you have recently come back on the site all guns blazing having not posted for quite a while. In fact, just before the Europa League final victory ironically (though sure that is just a coincidence) .

Just wanted to ask your thoughts on the EL final win, did you celebrate like the rest of us? It was my favourite day as a United fan for a good few years, thought it was a tactical masterclass and made Ajaz look like League 1 level fodder.

GDS2

1.) 15 Jun 2017 10:46:55
G'day GDS. What exactly do you want me to say here? That I wasn't pleased about United claiming CL qualification for next season? I really do not know why you have asked me such a foolhardy question.

Of course I was pleased United won the cup. Although if I am to be completely honest I was a little embarrassed for Mourinho for building up his achievement after his previous scathing remarks.

What was it the special one publicly said again a few years back something along the lines of 'Winning the EL would be a disappointment (or embarrassment I cannot remember the exact wording) ' and 'I don't want my players to feel that the EL is my teams level (again something along those lines) '. Some utterly pathetic backtracking from the gaffer in my view.

Again though winning a second rate cup for largely less reputable clubs was a means to an end that we were not capable of achieving in the PL so yes I am pleased with the ultimate outcome. As for not posting in a while I have simply been very busy. Does this answer suffice in answering your foolhardy question?


2.) 15 Jun 2017 11:04:22
The thing is Maze, with Jose comments, he meant his team failing to qualify for the CL and winning EL isn't good enough. But Jose took over with us in the EL, so he had no option. He didn't have a chance at CL as the previous manager failed to get united to qualify. So them comments are totally pointless to use.


3.) 15 Jun 2017 11:15:04
Stand you can wrap it in cotton wool all you like but Jose was trying to be-little Rafa Benitez's achievement with Chelsea that is why he said it. Now look at him crying after the Celta game and talking up his EL win so to me those comments are not 'pointless'.


4.) 15 Jun 2017 11:26:03
MAZE,

I pretty much expected you to say that, express that you were happy but then totally rip that view apart by laying into the manager and club. I was just wondering, you like to aim posts at me and call people out on their opinions so I thought I would ask you a question to provoke some debate seeing as you are posting a lot at the moment.

Do you not see the difference between winning the EL now compared to when he made them comments? If CL football had not been on offer for the winner we would have played the kids in the compeition and probably got knocked out in the group stage, the relief of manager, players and fans alike was there for all to see, we wanted to be in the CL next season and we are, 5 years ago when he made the comments we wouldn't have been, so can't really compare.

It is a huge coincidence that you are busy every time United seem to be doing well, thanks for saying I was 'foolhardy' for asking you a genuine question I am sure others are interested in the answer to as well. After all, you are the person who repeated in capitals each week that we would never win a trophy under Louis van Gaal, how did that one work out?


5.) 15 Jun 2017 12:00:06
i thought we won 3 tropies probably not the best ones but trophies never the less how many did the special one pep win.


6.) 15 Jun 2017 12:01:11
GDS you asked for an honest answer and I gave you one. I don't believe I have 'laid into the manager' I am just saying it as it is and as it was. Did I say anything untrue?

The point you are making about the comments is irrelevant because quite simply Jose made those comments to put down the achievements of his predecessor. Maybe if he kept his mouth shut at the time we wouldn't be having this conversation or maybe if his side were better in the PL he could have played the kids in the 'cup that is a disappointment'? I'm sure he was crying after the Celta game it was just something in his eye right?

I am busy guy GDS what can I say. I posted before the EL final did I not? As for the rest if the campaign is finishing 6th your idea of 'doing well'? It is really worrying if it is. As for the question you posed I believe others would be thinking "of course a United fan is pleased when United win" so again it was a foolhardy question.

My apologies I almost forgot that trophy LVG won (probs because I fell asleep during the final) but let's not recall past statements. Don't make me remind you of your claims of LVG's sides being great to watch or Smalling being the best CB in the league.


7.) 15 Jun 2017 12:15:07
Didn't Mourinho win the Europa with Porto? I think some people make the mistake of taking anything Mourinho says literally when what he is nearly always doing is plant phycological seeds in his own players and the minds of other managers and their teams. Much like SAF used to.


8.) 15 Jun 2017 12:26:33
Supasub that is what makes his comments even worse because winning the UEFA Cup was the making of him. It wasn't mind games because Rafa was gone from the PL by then, he just wanted to show off to the press and put down someone else's achievement by saying it was below him.

Fast forward 4 years later and he is crying his eyes out lauding his own victory in the same competition. This is why some folk didn't want him at United because he talks a hell of a lot ****. Narcissist or Hypocrite? You decide.


9.) 15 Jun 2017 12:37:40
JMB,

Haha if you can find where I said we were great to watch under LVG or that Smalling is the best centre back in the league go ahead and show me but they never happened, whereas you came on here each week and in capitals told us that LVG would never win a trophy.

Yes you posted before the EL final, that was kind of my point. If you don't think calling the manager 'utterly pathetic' is laying into him then we obviously have differing views.

I am glad to hear you took a little satisfaction and happiness from winning the final, shame you did't come and share it with us like the league cup final and fa cup final before it.

I don't think finishing 6th was good enough and never said it was, I would rather get into the CL via the EL than finishing 2nd though. We missed too many chances in the league and will need to be more clinical next season (perhaps why we need to buy a striker despite you thinking we have enough already minus our top scorer) . The winning mentality from winning the cups now needs to be taken into the league, Old Trafford needs to become a fortress again, too many draws, though i think the last time we lost at home was against City in November so we aren't too far away.


10.) 15 Jun 2017 12:54:03
GDS if I could be bothered to delve into the archives I could easily find posts to support those claims. The Smalling one sticks out like a sore thumb as many posters including myself kept talking about the 2 x CM's constantly protecting Smalling to make him look good but you had him down as the next Rio. WOW!

Again GDS did I call Jose utterly pathetic as a manager or his contradictory actions regarding the EL trophy utterly pathetic? More twisted words I believe.

You clearly said I wasn't on here when 'things were going good this season' tell me about these 'good times' as from what I understand United finished 6th. Hence why I assume that these are the good times you speak of? No? Yes? Possibly?

I personally would rather finish 2nd than win the Sevilla cup. I'd rather leave that too the teams that aren't capable of constantly competing in the big time.


11.) 15 Jun 2017 13:15:44
Maze, the 2nd part of my post was clearly lost on you.


12.) 15 Jun 2017 13:37:47
Now then. I'm one who always casts envious eyes at City's players. With the players they've got, they have seriously underachieved.
Mourinho win three trophies with an average side.
Maze, while we weren't magnificent all season, we did play better than in recent years. We played more games than any side in Europe. We had serious injury problems.
Pep took over at City and achieved NOTHING despite having de bruyne sane Aguero sterling Silva yaya in the side.
Not sure what else mourinho was supposed to achieve.


13.) 15 Jun 2017 13:38:43
Trying to talk to the Wall Supasub, some people will never be happy.

GDS I actually watched the final with a Liverpool fan and he asked what I'd prefer to have, our season or theirs and I was baffled by his answer, he would rather qualify on merit according to him, yet we won three trophies and have qualified outright where as they need to qualify still.

Qualifying for a tournament because you finished fourth, winning no trophies or winning three trophies and finishing 6th, I'd rather have three days out and finish 6th than finish fourth aanytime.


14.) 15 Jun 2017 13:50:07
Schmid what has this got to do with City? Why don't we compare our season to Chelsea's instead?

Gazpat who is not happy here? If you are capable of reading you will see above I have said that I was pleased. I would agree with your friend assessment to an extent. The Europa league is essentially the back door into the CL and is designed to give clubs who would struggle to get into the CL on merit an opportunity.


15.) 15 Jun 2017 13:53:47
Gazpat i agree completely.

And as mentioned, i'd take winning the EL to qualify than finish 2nd. Trophy is a trophy and its one we have never won.


16.) 15 Jun 2017 14:01:08
Do we have to count the charity shield as winning a trophy?

It a one off game before the season has even started little more than a friendly.


17.) 15 Jun 2017 14:02:54
Better than 6th he was supposed to achieve and dare I say a little bit (lot) more attacking intent.

Jose played his Joker this season, probably both of them. No more left in the deck next season.


18.) 15 Jun 2017 14:28:28
Winning the Europa league is achieving cl on merit . We've won a trophy that we didn't have too albeit not the most decorated but I'm from a time when winning it was considered a good if not great thing for any club. You've still got to go and win it. I'm all for bringing in winners. I noticed Mazes players he'd like to bring in haven't won a trophy between any of them as far as I'm aware. Very romantic all the same to bring in players who are untested at the highest levels and think they will make the difference.


19.) 15 Jun 2017 14:28:34
Oh here comes the other one. You would have fired him in February Beast so God knows where we would be now if you got your way.

JMB,

I don't want to cause arguments or get offensive as that isn't what it is about, was just having a bit of banter and you have started bringing up things I never said to defend your own comments.

The good times were clearly the 2 trophies that we won, one of them for the first time in our history. My original question was were you happy, you said yes and then named reason after reason why you weren't happy and are now calling it the Sevilla Cup to prove just how disappointed you are that we won this terrible trophy.

So in answer to my 'foolhardy' question despite you saying otherwise I will have to assume based on all your comments you weren't that happy, which is a shame. That's all I wanted to know, I will leave you now to get your knickers in a twist and make up more things I never said. Good afternoon.


20.) 15 Jun 2017 14:30:27
May be a good question to ask an arsenal fan next season if offered 4th place and back into champs league that way or win the Europa and come 5 th or 6th what would they see as a more successful season it seems to split opinion . As a one off option i'd take the later as a stopgap because as posters point out it wasn't JMS fault we weren't in champs league last season and he won a lot of what was available to him . However we can never accept 24 points off the pace again.


21.) 15 Jun 2017 16:12:37
And to further your point Slate151 -

City, our noisy neighbors and direct rivals who are managed by 'the messiah' - won nothing. Do people think they enjoyed their season more than UTD fans did?


22.) 15 Jun 2017 16:35:11
I think Utd had the 2nd best season of all in the EPL. Call me for it I wouldn't care.
But behind Chelsea no one else had a better season.


23.) 15 Jun 2017 16:51:24
I don't know why everyone bites at jmb and beast

Just don't reply to there posts if everyone is so bothered.

It's pointless having a debate with them because there always right.


24.) 15 Jun 2017 20:32:58
I am sure Jose is not satified with 6th and I am also sure he still regards the Europa as a minor competition and a low bar for a team like United. However there is a substantive difference between the Europa then and the Europa today - now it's a route into the Champions League. It's a far more important competition than it was prior to last season. I bet Wenger will be choosing teams to win it next season if for no other reason as insurance against dropping out of the top 4 again. It was a good decision by UEFA to raise the competition's profile by adding that carrot.


25.) 16 Jun 2017 00:38:24
I agree maze

He did say that smalling is king. It's like he cannot cope unless his name is all over the page.

If beast is not replying then I ignore it. Beast does not intimidate or ridicule people's views only the players. Sure why are th REGULARS the regulars

Beast is a good man to have a conversation with always shows respect and can take people with opposite onions very well.
Unlike a couple of others who have double standards at every turn and only come on to stir trouble or have a row. I agree maze is one of tbose bolger but he is not alone.

I think we would have a very successful spell in the clubs history if Jose stays for 8-10 years, if we keep improving the quality of players as we have so far under him and continuing to improve the youth system he will leave us in a good position and success on the pitch would relate to even more success financially, i am very excited for the future of our club and think the team is in capable hands.

As Beast says though, contract don't mean a great deal in the current game, although as it stands I can't see a better manager out there for us and can't see a better club out there for Jose so all good as it stands.

Jred,

I agree, that's my point, but we played West Ham and Swansea, I'm not getting carried away just yet but I know things are looking better.

Can't argue with your opinion stand, I respect it but don't fully agree with it as long as he isn't first choice. As a back up striker he will be fine. Imagine 2 years ago turning your nose up at our club signing zlatan ibrahimovic. The other players all seem to love him, what he does behind the scenes might not ever be quantified, but I am sure we can agree he has a positive effect.

Beast,

Fully agree, and as we have just signed a 90m striker I imagine the striker we have signed on a free who has taken a pay cut will understand his role in the team has changed somewhat from last season.

I know stand has made his mind up but none of us know how he will play, all I do know is that lukaku can't play 65 games this season and if we hadn't won the first 2 games 4-0 nobody would be complaining as much.

AJH,

We spent about 20 years doing that under Fergie but very much not in his last 3-4 years, do you think we have won and entertained since Ronaldo left in 2009? This season is the most entertaining we have been since then so I am happy to give the benefit of the doubt at the moment.

We set up to let Liverpool attack us and then hit them on the break when they commited men forward, give them enough rope to hang themselves so to speak, but Liverpool never commited the number of players forward that we needed for this to happen so they were quite easy to defend against but also very difficult to counter attack against as there were always nunbers around Miki and Lukaku meaning they never got a kick.

Both managers were too cautious in my opinion but both will be content with the point and we move on to easier games with our unbeaten run in tact and an extra point ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea with a big away game out the way.

I disagree that United games against Liverpool are always boring, there have been some classics over the years, but generally they need an early goal to open up the game, if this had happened you would have seen both teams committing more men forward creating more spaces on the counter.

I don’t think we should play for a draw and don’t want us to draw but I don’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.

FPL would have had him down as a goal and 3 assists last night.
