@rogybiv – whilst there are teams better than us, don’t think it’s impossible for us to win it either. Looking at the teams in the competition right now and teams that will most likely drop down from the CL, I reckon it will be between these teams who will win (and potentially United if we pull our finger out):
Arsenal, Sevilla, RB Leipzig (from CL), Valencia (from CL), Borussia Dortmund or Inter (from CL).
The rest of the clubs really aren’t good enough to beat the teams above.
It’s not the longest shot ever – If these clubs start knocking each other out and we get a lucky draw (similar to what happened a few years ago when we won) than anything is possible.

And the relegated CL teams haven’t even dropped down yetNovember 8, 2019 at 9:10 am #1798026
Good performance, and potentially a blueprint for how we might play against teams that come to Old Trafford to defend. Brighton will offer more on the counter attack this weekend though, so we’ll need to take our chances.
Martial leading the line at home makes a big difference, and although this should be Mata’s last season, at least he got us passing forward in the first half.
Does anyone else think McTominay is clearly our best player now?November 8, 2019 at 9:33 am #1798036
The worse thing that can happen in this competition is during the knockout stages or if we get to the final. We play Inter and Lukaku destroys us lol.November 8, 2019 at 9:38 am #1798037
If we play Inter it’ll be Martinez destroys us not LukakuNovember 8, 2019 at 10:05 am #1798043
I enjoyed the first half performance. Good, incisive, quick passing, playing going forward. Lack a clinical striker cost us. 2nd half was a bit flat but teh game was won, can’t help thinking that a better team would have scored 5/6 though.
Brighton will be much tougher, but I think we will win 2-0.November 8, 2019 at 10:53 am #1798060
The fact that we are nervous about playing Brighton at home says it all.November 8, 2019 at 10:54 am #1798061
A very enjoyable football in the 1st half,took the pedal off the gas in the 2nd where it could have easy been 5 or 6.Onto the Brighton game.
ps:brilliant goal by Greenwood.November 8, 2019 at 11:22 am #1798076
Didn’t see the match, but 3-0 with Greenwood, Martial and Rashford scoring is what you like to see.
Going for a win on Sunday, but a narrow one, 2-1.
Historically Brighton have been one of the shittest teams to ever come to OT. They don’t even try and score.November 8, 2019 at 11:29 am #1798079
2-0 to us.November 8, 2019 at 11:41 am #1798086

I’m torn, I want us to win but I’ve been wrong every week so far. Maybe if I predict a loss, we’ll winNovember 8, 2019 at 8:59 pm #1798197

Penny for the thoughts of one Harry Maguire on the eve of the Brighton match as 13 point United trail 26 point Leicester after less than a third of the season gone.
Truly fucking embarassed, I hope, like all the rest of us.
It really is a simple game and in Rogers, Leicester have a man who has sensibly gone about his business. He clearly recognises that the fulcrum of the team is the midfield – a deep lying, no frills player in Ndidi; a box to box in Tielemans; and a crafty player with no little guile in Maddison.
Leicester put our owners and executives, our football management and coaching team, and our squad of players to absolute fucking shame.November 9, 2019 at 7:29 pm #1798341
Fair play to Leicester, lovely little tram to watch at the moment. Would love them to pip either of City or Liverpool to the title!
How the hell did we beat them…?!
That said, and the Bournemouth result aside, I think we’re doing (just about) alright at the moment. I just hope we do finally click into gear when Pogba comes back.
I think we’ll beat Brighton 3-0!November 9, 2019 at 7:35 pm #1798345
They’re a fucking good side moral, no doubt. Excellent fullbacks in Ricardo and Chilwell, a midfield all of whom would walk into United’s midfield and Vardy up front. More to come from Gray and Barnes and the Turk is a more than capable replacement for Maguire. After watching them and the blend of youthful exuberance and experience of Chelsea earlier, it’s with almost no enthusiasm that I await tomorrow’s game with Brighton.November 9, 2019 at 7:39 pm #1798346
Happy, we are 6pts ahead of bottom club Norwich and 18pts behind Liverpool after 11 games.
In any era, that is any fucking thing but alright for Manchester United.
It is truly fucking attrocious and doubly so when you consider the riches squandered by Monsieur’s Moyes, Van Gaal, Mourinho and Solskjaer.
That we continue to rely on the likes of Rojo, Young, McTominay, Fred, Perreira, Jesse, Mata et al says it all.
