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
