How strange - United play well, dominate and win a game of football and not a single new post since the game ended (other hand some replies to earlier posts) .

Agreed. Was great to see. Jose went with what he knows and hey presto, comfortable win.

Still cannot believe the morons went ahead and hired the plane and banner. If anybody on here was part of it, Iā€™d love to hear your reasons and rationale behind it and why you thought it would help us in our current position?

02 Sep 2018 19:27:07
How very quiet the chat was too.

It was a very good performance against a team who have been historically difficult to beat especially away from home.

Fellaini typically justified joses decision to play him and show how good a player he actually is.

Onwards and upwards from here.

Some of us have to work weekends, Betty!

Played well today, players looked sharp and good in moments. That said I think people need to realise this isn't the Burnley of last season before thinking we have turned a corner. Burnley this season look like relegation material so far.

You have to beat the team in front of you and we did. Lukaku needs to sharpen his finishing for me, I didn't like seeing the land of the plodding giants in midfield, but it worked today. Plenty of times the managers tactics haven't worked so let's not forget that, Fellaini shouldn't be starting ahead of a new Ā£60m signing for me, with the manager bitching about not being backed.

02 Sep 2018 20:07:03
Oh beast. It's a squad game. Fred has started he first 3 and fellaini played today. Should the manager not be able to do that, surely that's the reason we have a squad.

I'd imagine you said Burnley were relegation fodder when they came up too.

Reality is, tough team, well organised and an even tougher ask when they play at home.

We could have had a few more goals today. Last 2 games we have created a lot of chances, very positive.

Fellaini doesn't get the credit he deserves. Very capable player who on is day is an absolute nightmare.

02 Sep 2018 20:44:57
I'll get absolute pelters for this but I actually think Fellaini can be very effective as part of a midfield 3.

He's a tough physical presence and when he's allowed to get forward and make runs into the box he's very hard to handle. When he's allowed to make runs into the box he provides us with a an effective option in addition to Lukaku. If we can get good delivery he becomes a nightmare for defenders to handle especially when he pulls onto the back post and isolates the full back. He's also very effective against teams that like to press as we can hit the ball into midfield from goal kicks where he invariably wins flick ons or he's able to bring the ball down on his chest and we can start attacks higher up the pitch.

Fellaini is poor when he's asked to play a deep lying defensive role. He's not good enough on the ball or quick enough to cover the ground and the game often passes him by. Used correctly he's a very good player although I accept the purists will never accept this.

I've been impressed with Fred but I'm not quite sure what kind of player he is yet or his best role. It's a squad game and no doubt he'll be suited to other games and I expect him to make a impact this season.

A good 3 points which it should be against Burnley.
Watford put 3 past them and Fulham 4 past them,
Now I'm happy with the 3 points but we still have a lot to prove
The next penalty we get should be given to Sanchez
And as for that banner that flew over today, what a joke.

Leahy, had the chances been taken and penalty scored we would have been a lot more than 2 up.

I envisage that that team are going to score a lot more in the coming weeks as players get sharper.

I hope Jose has turned a corner with tactics too. Seem to be a lot more attacking last 2 games.

02 Sep 2018 21:09:17
I appreciate that Noucamp, but it doesn't stop some when we lose does it?

Jose = Born winner šŸ˜†šŸ˜†.

02 Sep 2018 21:33:59
Fair enough, Betty. I only managed to catch the first 20 odd minutes, and we looked totally in control. Don't like commenting on something I haven't seen, but by all accounts we continued in that vein.

02 Sep 2018 22:15:29
No probs Nou, it wasn't aimed at any individuals anyway - and certainly not you! Thought we played really well today, and the interesting thing for me is that we didn't really play too much differently to our previous games. There were changes in defence of course, and Fellini in for Fred, but for me taking our chances first behalf made a huge difference and confidence grew - even after going down to 10 men.
It's a shame we didn't take our early chances in the previous two games as I think things would have been very different and we could have avoided the circus that has been the last 2 weeks.

Rumour has it The Sun was behind the plane, from all the utd forums I've been i haven't seen anyone part of it.

02 Sep 2018 22:31:47
Betty, i haven't seen the game. But Burnley have got 1 point in 4 matches. So let's not start beefing this victory as if we beat Barca. We are supposed to beat Burnley, just like we were supposed to beat Brighton, and we didn't.
Well done tp the team on winning, but let's not ho overboard.

AAA, who's getting carried away? A few of us have said we played well today. We did play well today. Would it really be too painful to acknowledge a good performance?

Haven't seen Barcelona mentioned anywhere. And after all, our season is already over, so no point celebrating anyway.

02 Sep 2018 23:36:50
Betty don't even bother with AAA. Three games in before today, the season was already over and top 4 was very close to being gone. 3 games gone! šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚

You can't try and argue with a person that comes out with the above logic, lol.

03 Sep 2018 00:36:29
One of the rare occasions I didn't see the game as I was at work.

Just watched MOTD 2 and Fellaini played just in front of the CB's in a deep midfield role and apparently played very well in complete contrast to my above post. Just goes to show I know absolutely nothing and I should watch before assuming anything.

Can only think Jose was expecting Burnley to play long and direct and deployed Fellaini as a shield in front of the CB's to help combat their aerial threat and physicality. Told you all Fellaini is a great defensive midfielder šŸ˜‚! (Having said I'm not convinced it would work against a team with great pace and movement) . Got the job done today though and I stand by what I said. He's certainly a useful squad player.

03 Sep 2018 17:28:49
Betty, it was the original post that mentioned that not a lot of people have come on to congratulate the team.
I always want us to win and will always congratulate the team. But this was Burnley, who have been playing absolute trash so far thos season. So maybe that's why people weren't rushing to congratulate the team on this victory.
Its 3 points and we move on to the next match. Watford away, if we get a result there, then I'll be the first to come on and congratulate the team.
