Cant argue with that JM. Arsenal should have won by 2 or 3.December 5, 2018 at 10:09 pm #1704782
If you sort out the bread and butter of beating a dire Crystal Palace and a shit Southampton you can shrug your shoulders at drawing with Arsenal, especially as they are on their uppers at the moment.
How sad though, when we’re in a big game that a) the two most expensive signings in our history aren’t worthy of a start and b) with the game finally poised we actually look worse when the two most expensive signings are brought on to the pitch. Neither had the simple gumption to influence that game in any way whatsoever.December 5, 2018 at 10:12 pm #1704785
Its just impossible to see how this team will improve. Another shambolic team selection, comedy defending, no creativity in midfield and utterly clueless attacking. How Hererra gets picked ahead of Fred astonishes me. Dalot looked hopelessly out of his depth. Where do you start with the clearout!!!?December 5, 2018 at 10:17 pm #1704788
Agree JM about Bailly. Its a pity really. At times he shows real quality with his pace and strength but you just know a lapse in concentration is around the corner. He was the one centre half i thought might be a proper player.December 5, 2018 at 10:18 pm #1704790
Didn’t watch the game, but not too surprised that Arsenal despite an obvious upturn in fortunes under Emery couldn’t beat us tonight despite us probably having our worst outfit since the Dave Sexton era 40 years ago. They might have improved, but they are still not that much better than us!.
Quite how Pogba can be picked ahead of Fred despite his obvious downing of tools against Southampton and being called a virus by Mourinho after the match god only knows and the poor guy must be wondering what the fuck is going on, especially when he sees McTominay also picked ahead of him who is not much more than a pub player.
So on it goes to the next game and what should be a comfortable win against Fulham who have been shipping loads of goals all season, I for one won’t be holding my breath!.December 5, 2018 at 10:41 pm #1704803
United like to make lists of targets for positions blacky. I would wager Fred was the bottom of Mourinho’s list for a midfielder. Or there was a deal to be done with his agent that impacted on some commercial side of the business that made it viable to bring him in. McTominay hasn’t been picked ahead of Fred either, he’s been picked ahead of Bailly and Rojo in defence to make a point to Woodward.
I’m not 100% buying this worst since Sexton either. We are definitely not worse than those early Fergie sides with Colin Gibson and such like from around 86-89. It’s not saying much mind you.December 5, 2018 at 10:43 pm #1704805
Arsenal should have won by 2 or 3.
I don’t think they should have you snivelling little lily livered wretch.December 5, 2018 at 10:50 pm #1704808
You watch Bailly and Rojo and think, hey, these guys are doing ok. But you know it’s only a matter of time before they make an elementary mistake. I’m afraid you just can’t have guys like that anywhere near your back four.
Sort of jm1502….but Rojo was playing his first game for a long number of months and against a very decent side too and Bailly has had very little playing time this season either. They also had a cub on one side of the defence and Darmian on the other.
Not 100% convinced by either but if you don’t want to be called a daft old senile cunt from Preston or filed alongside that little cockroach moral then you have to give a bit of context or just occassionally give a bit of credit where it is due. Which I think both those players earned tonight given the circumstances.December 5, 2018 at 10:59 pm #1704818
Tommy, there are none so blind as those who will not see, and a very average Arsenal carved us open on numerous occasions and 2 great saves from DDG and 1 glaring miss from Mikki is what I am referring to. We created sweet fuck all and were an embarassment for the last 30 mins.
You are clearly seething inside that you are slowly but surely having to relent on your staunch but baseless defence of manager and players – something you were ramming down the throats of all and sundry up to a few weeks back. When you ease off on the gargle and quit hiding behind the corkscrew in your bitter and twisted fashion, you will start seeing what everyone else has been seeing.
And nobody us buying your stance that JM is not a has been…..
Back to your bottle and incontinence trousers sir….December 5, 2018 at 11:07 pm #1704819
Thought Bailly did ok, looked a bit rusty but that’s to be expected. Dalot and Rojo tired massively as the game went on. I think this led to Rojo’s error for their goal however he is a red card waiting to happen. The foul he was booked for and the goal were both high risk tackles that either weren’t necessary or due to an error.December 5, 2018 at 11:07 pm #1704822
No, I can see the problems we have writ large…probably more than a whining spoiled little dick like you can.
Arsenal might have edged it but I think only a rabid Arsenal fan or an utter cunt would say the cockneys were worth three goals more than us tonight.
You’re the embarassment kid. To our fan base.December 5, 2018 at 11:21 pm #1704825
You are the embarassment I’m afraid with your foul mouth and the only one spoiling themselves around here is you – on copious amounts of alcohol. An obvious mechanism for you to suspend reality and convince yourself JM is good and Woodward is evil. Spare us the “when I were a young lad” diatribe – have followed the club for 35 years.
Several bedwetters think you need to be dried out. Wonderfuelly ironic.December 5, 2018 at 11:39 pm #1704826
Guys guys come on no need to rip into each other! Bottom line is both sides were shite today but being the home side the onus was on us to go for it but sadly these days we can’t do some of the basics I don’t know when things will change. As for arsenal? Make no mistake you ain’t making the top four either!December 6, 2018 at 12:14 am #1704832
The front 3 did well. Great energy/pressing from them and Herrera in midfield. Defence is all over the place though. Dalot has potential but he looked out on his feet towards the end. We need a new LB to push/cover Shaw. Both Bailly and Rojo looked like they haven’t played a game in months. Bailly may improve but Rojo won’t.December 6, 2018 at 6:27 am #1704841
Didn’t watch the game (I rarely watch evening games due to time difference) but no surprise from reports other than Arsenal not being as good as many thought they would be.
It doesn’t really matter much what happened. A team is not taking shape and there’s no indication it will under Jose or with these players.December 6, 2018 at 6:32 am #1704842
PS – Just came across this article ….. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/46463178
Manchester United: Have fans reluctantly accepted their team’s ‘B-List’ status
Manchester United’s hopes and ambitions have slipped so alarmingly this season that a routine show of grit that left them eighth in the Premier League drew warm applause from Old Trafford at its conclusion.
Jose Mourinho’s side battled back twice to earn a point in an eventful, if scrappy, 2-2 draw against Arsenal – but was the sanguine reaction at the final whistle acceptance this is now as good as it gets under the current regime?
And while this was a performance that contained many admirable qualities when measured in grit and character, it showed no signs of being the early stage of development into a team that could claim the big prizes.
That last remark about “no signs” is what bothers me most. Dare I say the P word … PROGRESS.December 6, 2018 at 6:51 am #1704844
How anyone can complain about the opening 30 minutes is a mystery. We looked good, took the game to Arsenal, played on the front foot, crisp passing and did none of the things the bed wetters moan about.
Arsenal got into it the second half, but anyone should have expected that.December 6, 2018 at 6:57 am #1704845
It wasn’t just last night with Bailly and Rojo though Tommy, they were making the same mistakes way before they went on their respective injury lay offs mate. In fact making rudimentary midtakes is their only consistency. They’re just perennial mistakes waiting to happen. Lewis fucking Dunk is better than either of them and he’s as average as fuck.December 6, 2018 at 6:58 am #1704846
By the way, Arsenal were piss poor in my opinion, and in days gone by we’d have fucking minced ‘em.December 6, 2018 at 7:01 am #1704847
They pressed and were lively Alfie07, i’ll give you that, but anyone with eyes can see that there’s just a lack of quality from back to front. There’s no doubt Mourinho’s got to go but, as i’ve said before, next one in will have to start from scratch. We’re shite, simple as that.
