  • Like him or hate him, you gotta admit it. He is right! Liverpool and Man City have been under performing this season compared to previous season. Man Utd has not been exceptional. Fact is that if they achieved this season what they did last season, they still would not have won the title. Credit due, they have performed better this season than the rest. But does that make them that good? Answer is serious NO. They still need to do a lot more additions. And Ole still is a question mark. That huge question mark is made stronger when you get kicked out of the UCL when you had every opportunity to move on to the next round. Winning 1 season FYI is by no means any accomplishment. Especially when you opponents do poorly. I mean Arteta is in danger of getting kicked and he just won the FA cup. But lets see what happens at the end of the season first. Ole might surprise us, and im not saying that is a bad thing. But you gotta achieve it first.

  • That keeper haven't got a clue. How tf is Stece Nichol the only sane one??! He hasn't seen the tackle when he brings up knees. Nichols is actually right here. Shaw didnt "Catch" the ball. He WON a 50/50 with the momentum not through the player but by the side, and by not stifflegging after the challenge catches the opponent. That is about as good as you can get it in that position. His leg wasnt even straight.

They have to win every game 5-0 for at least ten matches and even they beat city 5-0 it will be because city has dropped off. Give me a break!!!

  • Craig, after so many years in the premier league, you still don't know that the best teams don't win the league, the most consistent team does. No wonder you never win before. I think the standard of ESPN has deteriorate so drastically that these people has to act like clowns to attract some attention. Nah, United fans should all ban ESPN and stop watching any of it.

  • (1) "The drop-off is inevitable" - Newcastle dropped off..In 1996..12 points ahead..We won the double. Who cares? Who cares about the last THREE years..Living in the past yeh? Is that gonna deter the present, Marty McFly? If my auntie had bollox she'd be my uncle. (2) You are top my merit, you beat whats in front of you, you deserve to be where you are. Christ. Such a witch-hunt since Fergie retired. Credit where it's due. The word "Depleted" is overused. Managers build squads. They are the people who choose the teams they see fit to win. Klopp made a big mistake in not strengthening their backline. He made 1 signing in Thiago. (3) Shaw got a yellow, cause Brady halved Cavani. Done. Nicol is spot on too. If you get the ball, its not a foul. (4) Maguires goal ; Alan Shearer, one of Englands greatest centre forwards, found it laughable to be disallowed. "I'd have had half my goals taken away from me if thats the case."

  • Literally there was nothing else Luke Shaw could have done to prevent the Burnley player from falling after the tackle. He slid, got the ball away and the follow through ended up taking the player down. A controlled tackle in which a player hits the ball away and the momentum from his tackle causes the opposing player to fall is a yellow at best. Whereas a tackle that completely or largely ignores contact with the ball and ends up taking down an opposing player is way more grounds for a red. Luke cleared the ball first and as a result of his momentum the Burnley player fell - a yellow at worst, and the correct call by the ref.
