    @mufc I wouldn’t be knocking City about the Wolves defeat given we lost to fucking Newcastle. No heart, no energy, no pace, no desire, seemingly no plan. Fucking disaster from start to finish. I’d say Ole has to go but I don’t think any manager can do a job with this squad, we just have to grin and bear it.

    But Killboye, Utd seem to have spent hundreds of millions over the last 3 or 4 years, yet they have no players? Obviously Lukaku came and went, Pogba cost a silly fee, but after that I can’t even remember who they bought.

    and many many more, they have just spent very poorly and most have moved on, and likley why they still have so much deadwood at the club they re forever selling more recent expensive flops to get cash back

    G Nev said the funniest thing a couple of weeks ago (or maybe last week):

    This is Man Utd’s time to build and catch Liverpool and City in 3 years time and win the league.

    Er sorry G Nev… the only league i can see Utd winning in 3 years is the Championship League, not Premier League.

    Amz, three years is a long time in football track back and review the relative positions of the top 6 from three years ago will tell you that.

    If United invest wisely and take the right decisions across the Club who knows?

    Of all the Club’s potentially capable of competing with City and Liverpool United are probably one of the best placed considering their financial might which would be unhindered by FFP. United just need to improve their decision making.

    9, if i backtrack 5 years i can see a big club in decline and they have a shocking Chief Exec.

    They have spent almost £1bn in 5 years and look where they are.

    Arsenal and Chelsea are much more primed to pounce in 3 years time if they can continue to develop the young players that are already showing a lot of promise.

    @amz, they haven’t spent £1bn, they’ve spent £900m and recouped £250m of that. So we’ve had a net spend of £650m which is still damning given the current state of our squad.
    We’ve had one bad decision after another, the first right decision the Glazers need to make is to take football matters out of Woodwards hands and insist that he appoint a Director of Football and force him to concentrate on commercial matters where he’s a genius. He’s just a complete numpty when it comes to football.

    So how much do you blame previous managers for the choice of players? Or did they just get what they were given?

    It’s a complete shitshow Kingo which is why we need a DoF to ensure some sort of continuity. The board have appointed four different managers since 2013, five if you include Giggs’ short reign, all of whom approach the game in a different way and who as a result wanted different types of players. Not only have they bought and sold different players, they’ve changed coaching staff, scouting staff and god knows what else. Despite buying different players they’ve all claimed that the board/Woodward have consistently failed to deliver on desired targets. It’s a farce. I don’t think any one individual can be absolved of blame, most of the blame must fall on the board but each manager must shoulder some of the responsibility too.

    I don’t get why the board didn’t back Jose with another CB. Ok you can say he asked for Bailly and Lindelof but he wouldn’t know how injury prone Bailly would be. Man Utd have no identity now and won’t have in a years time probably, it’s crazy.

    Utd need a hard reset with a proven manager.

    I don’t think they were unwilling to back Jose with another CB, at the time they felt that Maguire was overpriced and not worth the money, they may yet be right on that one. Although he may be better if Tuanzebe gets more game time in CB instead of Lindelof, not that Lindelof is bad, he’s just not great and we need two great CB’s. They wanted Jose to go out and find a younger, cheaper CB who’s better than Maguire. Defence is far from sorted now but it’s not the priority at the moment. We need a striker and a creative midfielder as a priority. I can see us spending another £150m on those two positions alone. Rashford will have to move to the wing as he’s not a natural striker, he can take his goals well but he’s not the smartest in and around the box.

    No, I exaggerated. Only 4 (four) games which had the results directly changed by wrong VAR. What a farce.

    A decent point for Utd yesterday, but can’thelp feeling that it ended up as two points dropped. Liverpool didn’t turn up, which was nice! A lot of Utd players put their best performance in for a long time, lots of graft. Made too many wrong decisions in the final thord though.

    Controversy over teh Utd goal, but had he not scored there wouldn’t be any talk about a missed fould or not as it was one of those that could have gone either way and the ref let a lot of them go in the match. Origi threw himself to the floor and was looking for the freekick so hopefully more refs follow suit.

    Thought VAR did well for both handball calls, but you certainly are better off if teh ref goes your way first time around. I think the liverpool goal from the handball was the first in a long time that I have seen overturned. Mostly VAR hides behind clear and obvious.

    So far, so good for Chelsea. Utd and Spurs drop more points, hopefully arsenal do the same tonight. Leicester are performing consistently right now and seem to be a real threat for a top 4 spot.

    did you guys notice that United did not have a single foul from the 22 min until the 72 min, which seems oddly strange considering they made 9 out of 11 tackles inside that period, especially considering that United only had 32% possession. We all saw how the goal came about but its so blatant the bias the ref had there, he really needs to be pushed down the ladder into the non-league section or something. How can you add only 2 extra minutes to a half that had two VAR decisions, I would have thought it was closer to 5 minutes extra. Either Atkinson is on the take or he just has to accept his role as the worst referee in the country…

    havent seen the game od incidents os wont comment on them, i did have the bbc live text thing going and at somepoint early on a comentator said something like

    there have already been 3 or 4 deliberate cynical professional fouls from united to break up play,…have they been told to employ these dark arts….?

    so was surprised this morning to see the number of fouls more than double by pool than united!
