So we now have our best goal difference at this stage in a season since 2000, boring boring United, wish Jose would stop parking that bus.


1.) 29 Nov 2017 06:53:58
In any other year I think we would win the league but City's start has been incredible. Our next 2 games are critical as if we slip further behind then I can’t see Ity dropping a double digit lead. However, if we beat them then who knows?

We have huge potential. Rashford, Martial and Lingard can all look devastating but can also be anonymous. If they continue to develop and become consistent then they have the talent to hurt anyone.

Everyone is crying out for wide players but I thi;I it is midfield where we have given up a lot of the ball and sometimes been overrun. However, give me a 4-2 any day over a 1-0.

2.) 29 Nov 2017 08:29:04
Lingard is 24/ 25. He needs to be more consistent. Granted, he was a late bloomer in today’s football after numerous loans away.

3.) 29 Nov 2017 08:36:36
I a agree with all that, the players are there for some reason people want to make out it's a poor squad but any other season we would be top .
City have raised the bar and produced the best ever start to a EPL season, can they keep it?
United definitely have another gear.

People are very quick to give the defence stick or the attack stick but it's the midfield that hasn't really clicked .
Mata pogba both quiet last night Herrera wasn't great when he come on . Knives out for Herrera on the chat last night .
But plenty more to come from this squad.

4.) 29 Nov 2017 09:45:56
Jred, yes they can keep it up. They have a strong squad and a fantastic midfield and attack. Gundogan and Bernardo Silva haven't even played yet. Both will walk in our team. People are talking as if city's form is a fluke. Guadiola has come in and set the Barcelona system there and we know how efficient that proved.
There will be no major slip up at city. So we have to continue winning and beat them home and away to stand a chance.

5.) 29 Nov 2017 11:20:27
You mean Gundogan would hobble into our team.

6.) 29 Nov 2017 12:47:00
You said the same last season .
Mind you you spent a week bigging up Watford.
I can't see city slipping up to be honest but I don't think they will win every game either.

7.) 29 Nov 2017 13:56:24
Mata was so quiet he didn't even get on.

All we can keep doing is picking up the wins which with our squad are more capable than anything. True Jred, the midfield seems to have dipped in performance of late, more so Matic who really ties it altogether. He has not been his ultimate best although I did feel, even not at the peak of his powers, when he went off last night we definitely suffered and of course let 2 goals go by.

He went off after picking up a slight knock, maybe it has been something he has been carrying.

Have to say though it was tremendous performance last night in parts, away from home against a good team we could have scored many more than 4. I hope Lukaku get's that boot deal sorted!



25 Nov 2017 17:45:09
Think it's safe to say last season we probably would have drawn that game, something a bit stronger about us this season. Only 1-0 and no prizes for style (although didn't think we played too badly, Brighton were decent) but a big 3 points.

United record for games unbeaten at home, Jose has turned OT into a fortress again, the next home league game will decide if we are fighting for Top 4 or for the title I think, although our away form hasn't been great. I think I would be happy with 4 points from the next 2 games.

As someone said below, city playing so well is clouding the judgment a little, most other seasons we would be top of the league with this points tally, hardly conceding a goal, especially at Home. Hopefully we keep the form up and let's see where we end up.


1.) 25 Nov 2017 17:50:22
I just think the European travel took it out of the players. They looked very tired compared to the Brighton players.

2.) 25 Nov 2017 18:03:11
I'm very happy with the result. Maximum points from a hard fought game. Just glad the players fought till the end. Hoping for a Chelsea-liverpool draw now.

3.) 25 Nov 2017 18:18:35
We should have had a pen too to be fair.

4.) 25 Nov 2017 19:17:36
Gds, do you think we'll get 4 points from away ties at Watford and arsenal? I think we'll be very lucky to come away with two draws.

5.) 25 Nov 2017 19:44:26
Watford are no mugs. Arsenal on their day can beat anyone. I'm not expecting 4 points. We'll see.

6.) 25 Nov 2017 20:56:27
Schmid your starting to sound like maze.

Be careful or people will stsrt to talk.

Please make sure your on here after the next 2 games when we get more than what your expecting?

7.) 25 Nov 2017 22:17:15

I think they will be very tough games, I almost said I wouldn’t happy with 3 points but can’t be happy losing a game. I think to continue applying any pressure to city we need to get 4 points really, I expect city to get a minimum 7 from the next 3, probably 9.

I don’t think we will be lucky to come away with 2 draws, that makes us sound like we are a very poor team. We are above both of those teams in the league for a reason and both of them are beatable, our away form was good until pogba’s injury so hopefully now he’s back we will kick on again. I’m glad I don’t have your negative attitude, must be hard getting through life sometimes.

8.) 26 Nov 2017 07:54:55
Arsenal are good on there day ask spurs also pretty poor on there day ask, well anyone .
Watford are doing well up to 8th in the table behind Burnley

Mind you man United aren't a bad team either.

9.) 26 Nov 2017 08:02:36
We are sat in 2nd arsenal 6th Watford 8th .

Maybe they should be worried about Manchester United.



21 Oct 2017 17:12:44
I just want to say a massive welcome back to MAZE, its been a while mate.




19 Oct 2017 10:48:54
3 wins in a row in the champions league for the first time since Fergie was here, 2 of them away from home, 8 goals scored in the 3 games with 1 conceded and all I can see in the press this morning is how Mourinho is ruining our club. In my mind he must be doing something right to get everybody to hate us again.

We all know the Liverpool performance was a poor one, I think both teams cancelled each other out, he expected klopp to be more pragmatic, he wasn't and even made subs that took away their threat, we move on from that and get another away win in the CL pretty much confirming qualification into round 2 and hopefully as group winners if we don't get hammered in Switzerland.

We are playing without Bailly, Jones, Shaw, Pogba, carrick, Fellaini and Zlatan and possibly now rashford as well. Mkhitaryan has also been poor since Pogba got injured and we are still getting results in tough games and remain unbeaten so very unsure where the negativity is coming from, even Maze hasn't been on here yet so things must be going well so far.

It was nice to see McTominay get a go last night even if it was for a couple of minutes, I really like him as stated in pre season, he always wants the ball and always looks to be positive, fingers crossed he progresses as I like his attitude and how he plays the game.


1.) 19 Oct 2017 12:02:55
Good post GDS, very level headed view of the present.

I enjoy reading the headlines. It reminds me of when fergie was in charge and there were many many negative headlines about this club. But yet we kept on winning.

We, United and Jose will never be perfect, not everyone/ fan will be happy with our performances in certain but there is no doubt that we are on track now and to use a boxing analogy, we will still be punching in the 12th round and will have our hand raised many times, which is what we have craved since fergie left.

Yes, a good player GDS, really hope he progresses and gets the chance to play in a number of games this season.

2.) 19 Oct 2017 14:24:37
GDS2 - It's hard to argue with what you say mate as the cold hard facts indicate we are a force to be reckoned with. My major issue is the same as always - what's the point in having a a glamour model bird if you have to watch her perform way past 10pm on cable tv and she turns up knackered as you leave for work? (loose connection with last on MOTD again and we would be for CLTV)

So much potential, so boring to watch - be nice to enjoy all the kit we have in the locker for once.

3.) 19 Oct 2017 16:02:33
I'm just a bit confused. We started like a train but the last 2 and a half games have been dire. Hanging on for dear life against Southampton with 8 defenders on the pitch, the bore draw at Anfield, and a somewhat underwhelming performance last night. Perhaps this is a short dip, a few aren't playing well at the moment. I think Huddersfield will tell us, we should set up to attack and win.

4.) 19 Oct 2017 16:16:04
Poor game to watch last night, I think we have seen a lot of them games away from home in europe .
Keep a clean sheet do enough to win .
Can be a bit painful to watch .

We scored 8 goals in 2 games before the international break but have looked a bit flat after it.

5.) 19 Oct 2017 16:18:44

Might be a coincidence but the performances have dropped since our best midfielder and link between midfield and attack got injured, fortunately the results haven't, but I can't wait for him to be back, always loved Fellaini.

6.) 19 Oct 2017 16:21:08

We won 4-0 between the Southampton and Liverpool games, I am guessing you missed that out by accident but it does seem like all of the good perfmances are being ignored at the moment for some reason.

7.) 19 Oct 2017 17:02:43
Was that with pogba.

8.) 19 Oct 2017 17:59:49
Read the lampard interview. Bye said jose asked him about 6 times a season to stay in a defencive position and to curtail his runs. He hated doing it but doesn't think about those games when he polishes his medals.
There will be days with negative tactics and days when players simply don't play well but if we had 32 games like the first 7 and 6 like the Liverpool game with the same point return i'd be happy with that.

9.) 19 Oct 2017 22:32:25
Only thing i have hated about this week have been mourinhos comments about PSG. I think he should show a bit more respect to the club than force their hands regarding a new contract.

Dont really mind the performances against liverpool and benfica as you have to dig in and win ugly sometimes this season and mourinho has got us excelling defensively without a regualar left back and to the extent of making phil jones a reliable defensive force this season.

However I still think the club should have a contingency plan in case mourinho implodes next seaon, prefferablly pochettino from spurs in my opinion.

10.) 20 Oct 2017 07:00:28
The Liverpool game was tough to watch but everyone knew how Jose would set up. He set up the right way in my opinion, the players let him down big time in that match. It's not his fault they couldn't string 3 or 4 passes together. And even with playing so poor we were never in any danger of losing that game.

It was the two week international break and the fact everyone was saying "yous haven't played anyone decent yet" which made everyone overreact to the performance. There were more articles about Jose ruining football and how he's the anti-christ by getting a point at anfield then there was about Arsenal and Chelsea both losing!

As for the game last night. A 1-0 away win in Europe is always welcomed regardless of the laboured performance. If you look at the season as a whole, we're in good stead.

11.) 20 Oct 2017 06:32:57
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.

12.) 20 Oct 2017 08:08:07
And I'm not sure we can count Shaw as a loss right now.



20 Sep 2017 22:58:09
If only Rashford was any good he might have scored a few tonight, eh Shan 😉.


{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.

Young has been great at left back and nothing I’ve ever seen in Rojo would make me think he could do a better job there at the moment. We need a new left back and if not I think young is the best one, as does Jose.

Would be comfortable with all 8 of them leaving in the summer, don’t think any of them are good enough to see us get to where we want to be, none of them would get in the city team and that’s our biggest challenge.

Today showed they have a structure and a plan? Just showed me that they know how to win ugly, go down and fake injury and foul when the opposition get the ball.

Not sure if you’re joking ed0333 but Liverpool have no chance of winning the league this season in my opinion, Your defence just isn’t good enough.

He has been naive but I would suggest listening to the podcast in full rather than picking out the quotes out of context that the press want you to head.
