He's younger and has more pace, perfect for a sub. And he always might improve.

Mmmm well not the best performance of the year
we were outplayed for virtually all of the game, a draw is a point, and anything's better than getting beat there lol

DDG, wow what a stop brilliant

When will Jones stop making schoolboy errors
Ashley Young was solid IMO
Matic calmed us down in the 2nd half
We missed our injured players, but so did they
Possibly the game was hyped up way too much

Why did Maureen feel he had to park the bus.

After such a good start to the season with positive play that was dog dirt on Saturday, really disappointed he felt he had to set up that way, like a return to last season at times.

what the ****'s gone wrong, we seemed to be playing half decent football, a bit of free flowing stuff, then over the last few weeks it's caved in
Spurs showed how to play against Liverpool, granted they were at home, but the way we went to Anfield was shocking and then Saturday, well what a disaster
I can't imagine what we'll be like against Spurs next weekend, will it be backs to the wall, bus parked or will we play football - only JM knows that...or does he?
(only a few posts ago I admitted I was wrong us getting him as the manager, don't tell me that'll come back and haunt me lol)

I'd say it was OK against Spurs I expect he will have to play 5 at the back against City though

tell me this
how does Phil Jones get a game for us, let alone for England
he's useless
I just don't get it, has he caught Jose $hagging someone, bin him, get Van dijk or Dier
and hurry up and get dembele from Celtic, must be worth a punt
we're becoming so negative again, after such a bright start, it's all gone pete tong

That's Maureen's tactics for you elgassi, although you had chances and I wouldn't say the bus was parked against us. Looks like the rest of us are playing for second anyway As for Poch, the Madrid vultures are circling for him I reckon

what an embarrassing way to win 3 points
we were Totally outplayed for the full game, yet Won
Arsenal were brilliant on the ball
DDG was simply superb, the result could so easily have been 6 -3 to Arsenal
You can only ride your luck for so long
Hopefully it'll last till after the Citeeh game
Pogba's tackle looked horrendous when it was played back, whether he could have avoided Bellarins leg, who knows Ouch

I wouldn't say we were totally outplayed, certainly there were defensive problems, and Mr De Gea came to the rescue.
Pogba's challenge, I don't think he meant that at all, the slowed down replay shows his eyes constantly on the ball, so its a shame he got a red given next weeks game

I've been a fan for 50 years, I found it embarrassing for us to play like that we were like W.HAM today, backs to the wall defending for our lives

Arsenal should have destroyed us, but didn't & that's football

I know we won and all that, but if we keep playing like that we'll get fooking hammered and ripped apart, you can only ride your luck so many times IMO

we used to be the aggressors in matches against Arsenal and other teams

The stats:
possession %............................. 75 / 25
shots......................................... 33 / 8
shots on target........................... 15 / 4
corners...................................... 12 / 1

onwards and upwards, lets murder Citeeh next week

great display Bristol City, deserved everything you got

United got everything they deserved, for a good few matches now they've been so poor
Outplayed tonight, watching the game, you'd have thought the EPL team was in Red
Even with us playing so many 'Z' list players, who cost us a small fortune is NO excuse as to the way we go about playing
Shocking team performance

It's a roller coaster ride, I dreaded JM coming, (I fancied Simeone) then after our goal fest start to the season I warmed to him and the teams style, now it feels like I've been clobbered a dozen times with a Mash hammer and woken up

I think the Liverpool game in October confirmed JM's style of play to me, we were a disgrace
Liverpool smashed us, an absolute rabbit in the headlights display
Jm has made us run scared against teams that can play a bit

we must stay strong, United are bigger than JM

what do you do, hope he ***** off to PSG, he thinks he's the Messiah

Problem we've got is that other teams are stronger and better than us and he doesn't seem to know how to beat them, draw with them is his plan 'A', 'B' & 'C'

I hope there's NO WAY of us getting Liverpool in the Champions League they'll play us off the park, they'll score a barrel load and we won't get any, that would be BAD

Merry Xmas to all on this thread

Well that was a 5hite Christmas

More poor performances, I am beginning to think more and more that Jose doesn't know what he's doing, he was forced to play Pogba higher up the pitch due to injuries, but he excelled yesterday, especially in the second half why not play him there all the time. How come this hasn't been picked up on the training ground and specifically during his time at Juve.

I can't bear to listen to him anymore, in my 44 years of following United I don't think I have disliked a manager of ours quite this much, never wanted him as my comments on this forum testify, I very nearly changed my mind at the start of the season then the buses kept coming one after the other along with the BS that spills out of his mouth pre and post match to remind me he's still a ****.

FM,
I watched Arsenal Vs Chelsea tonight, both teams looked better than us, Liverpool, Citeeh & Spurs, they all seem to be playing better football than us, we're Boring Zzzz! to watch
I'll never turn my back and will always 'Believe'
JM, who like you I warmed to after the first few games of the season talks $hite
I wanted Simeone as our next manager

Hopefully JM realises he'll never beat Pep and he'll move to PSG where he'll get all the Euros he wants to buy success
I for one will rejoice in his departure

Pochettino looks like he could be a good fit
