Sorry but I disagree, I think Nev hardly ever goes over the top with praise for Utd, he knows what is expected quality wise and he rarely seems particularly impressed with what we show.
Carragher on the other had is typically deluded after 2 wins in a row for the bin dippers.

I don't think Nev had a fair crack at the whip at Valencia, they knew he was only on until the end of the season, he inherited an already struggling side with bang average players and couldn't speak the language. Would be good to see him at a club in England to see what he's really made of

great draw in Europa League, FC Rostov, lowest ranked team left
could turn out to be a real good season, treble and 2nd/3rd in the EPL

Ranieri's lost his job, what an incredible turnaround from last year, talk about over achieving

Saved us again. What a player.
I think we need to start seeing a lot more from Pogba.

Anyway, back to the game. I feared the worst when they equalised, because they were the better team.

Still nice to get some silverware though.

The 12 men of Utd couldn't cope with the 10 men of AFCB...

Yes that's the number of players left on a football team when one has been sent off.

The ref was shocking today, totally bottled it in not sending off ibrahimovic. Then there's Surmans first yellow, what a joke that decision was as was the penalty award....We got what we deserved today, a big point at Old Trafford.

As for Pogba, 100 million, wow!!! He's no better than Harry Arter, he really isn't.

Mings and ibra should both have gone.

Pogba was 89m

Best I've seen the Bournemouth defence play all season, Boruc was outstanding. If they could have defended like that all season they wouldn't be looking over their shoulders at the drop.

Nice to see so many teams still saving their best for when they play United.

136 shots at goal in the 7 home draws we've had this season

89 million/100 million either way the guy is a bang average midfielder and nothing more and I'm totally amazed at his transfer fee.

Our defence did have a good game and to be honest, Mings has been terrible since he come into the side and has been responsible for a few conceded goals but he had a good game against Ibra. The rumour is, Ibra is still in Mings pocket

This just about sums it up...

Lack of Strikers tonight is a worry, it was going to be a tough game, it just got a whole lot harder.

I'm sure I heard that 20 odd years ago, 'you'll never win anything with Kids', lets hope we can bring some younger players in tonight who really put on a good show and keep us in the tie and Cup

We did well, I can't grumble with that.

Did Hazard and Costa swap boots at half time, spent far too much time on the floor in the respective halves.....

That's the hardest I've seen us fight all year, great performance, I reckon we would have been in with a great chance of winning had we kept 11 on the park
Valencia, Young, Rojo & Rashford worked real hard all night

Hazzard and Costa are a disgrace with the constant falling down. Good goal though.

To be fair I didn't think is was a second yellow and also thought Hazzard was going down way to easy.

Yes, but not only falling down too easy, but also looking for the ref whilst falling

So how did you Utd fans see the Rojo/Hazzard incident, did Rojo tread on him intentionally or was it an accident?

I didn't see that during the game to be fair, but looking at the slow mo's it doesn't look great.

Need to see it in real time though.

Can't stand Conte though, not quite sure what it is.

yes he wiped his feet on him, probably get a 2 game ban for it
Rojo had a good game all the same, he played Costa well, they had a good battle all night

Rojo - no charges by the looks of things, officials maybe think Hazzard needs to get checked out for falling down disease.

An absolute farce...Mings gets a 5 game ban and Rojo nothing... Our own FA is as corrupt as FIFA!

I'll have to plead Wenger on this one, I didn't see it.

The fact he got nothing was because Oliver saw the incident, had he not seen it then retrospective punishment could be dished out.

Mings got 5 games because he appealed the charge, had he not he would also have got a 3 game ban as Zlatan did.

Rojo did stand on him when he was down..............not hard enough

Anyway enough of all that

could Lukaku do a job for us?, big strong boy, scores goals, only 23, time on his side to improve his skill and first touch - could be JM's new Drogba !!
