Default Man Utd Thread 2017-2018

Well The season kinda starts today with another Mickey Mouse European trophy up for grabs.

So time for a new thread

Will Zidane start Bale just to shut Maureen up, the fact he may be on the bench is the most exciting part of this game as it could prove enough for United to make their move, must be the reason they haven't forced through the Perisic deal.


Momentum is with us, I don't expect the title but we should give it a bloody good go !!

I'm hoping Matic hasn't lost it and Lukaku carries on banging in upteen goals. We need to set the team up to supply Lukaku I think.

Glad he got a goal, you could tell he was keen to get one.

Cracking game, top of the table.

Some nice footie by United, Matic looked like he owned the place

Jones, Rashford and Pogba all stood out.

Romelu, loose the beard man you just look like a fat bloke that can score goals !!

I enjoyed the match, didn't get to see much of the first half.
They played well, nice movement of the ball, probably could have been more than four nil.
There will be tougher matches ahead for sure, but West Ham had the better of us last year.

Still pop in now and again fm, got to keep an eye on you
Matic will certainly strengthen any team, doesn't get the credit he deserves. Can't believe we sold him to another Premier League team, even a lowly one

lol

I'd take another player as well Costa, Just don't know what he did wrong last year, I thought he had his best season

Alright he's a player who gets into trouble, the away fans give him stick, he does stupid things, but bottom line, he's a great player and proven goalscorer

Can't understand what Conte, (if true) was playing at saying he wasn't in his plans
I don't blame him for not returning, why come back if your not wanted ?

Another 4-0. If Rashford could finish he'd be properly dangerous. Wonder how long before he loses his starting place to Martial? He's got to score those one on ones. There's a real balance to the team - best team for a number of years. Still think we need another quality striker just in case. Bring on Leicester!

Well i was gutted United didn't win. Zouma seemed to nullify Rashford, i wasn't sure on formation either.

They looked half asleep most of the game especially the defence.

It's a good reality check tbh

It was Phil Jones, Eric pace helped alot, a few times Jese shot off and Eric out paced him.




You can see he had him marked well.

Darmian and Bailly were poor, but as usual one of the opposition unknowns has a worldie against us. Can guarantee Choupo Moting will do f*ck all the next few games.

Draw was a fair result, but Lukaku should have won the game for us, and maybe Rashford could have passed when he got greedy when we were 2-1 up.

De Gea's save//// holy ****

I think the result flattered us, there were long periods of the 2nd half where we just didn't play that well, had they taken their chances (which they didn't) it could have been a draw or worse a loss
In the end it was a canter, but until the 2nd goal it was in the balance and they did look as though they were going to score
another 4 goals in the bag,
confidence = helps make a winning team

Ludicrous that "Kick it out" want Lukaku's chant banned because of racial stereotyping .

FFS it's a bit fun and who knows maybe he does have a 24" ****.

Best use of a Stone Roses song in a football chant

I realise that ^^
Ruthless, Er I wouldn't say that at all, if it was 4 - 0 at half time and 6 or 7 at full time, I'd say we were ruthless, they're a bottom of the table outfit
we can't play like we did for long periods of that game against better teams

Last year Tony's volley would've hit row'z' and Everton would've scored 2 goals at least (probably Lukaku lol)
We have confidence now, but we still need to get stronger to destroy the Top teams IMO
Our main focus this year must be the EPL title, Oh & the CL
