So you won, annoying but it happens.

Think the game was one of the best between the sides for a long time.

We made a couple of errors you capitalised on and won it with a good free kick. Think Ali could of maybe done a bit better but that doesn't matter now.

No idea how the season will play out from here but if you can keep the confidence you'll be in the mix. You are a team that imo is hugely reliant on getting on a run of form and riding the wave which you are definitely doing at the minute!

Enjoy the win and we will see how it looks going into the return game in the league.

Fair points mate. There’s a good fell around the club right now and we keep picking up the wins. I know you have CB issues but Klopp doesn’t seem a happy bunny right now. Can’t blame him, you’ve lost your best player and having to play midfielders at CB was never going to end well.

I am surprised at your slump, you were head and shoulders above every other team last year and yet right now, games seem a struggle.

As for today, great game, could have gone either way.

2.) 24 Jan 2021 22:10:58
WYred, I think today showed how important Henderson is at covering your full backs. Our first two goals came from huge space in behind. Shows how disciplined he is when your team attacks.

3.) 24 Jan 2021 23:13:10
Pretty even game. You miss your central defenders. We took advantage. If you have them back for the league match you could win.

4.) 25 Jan 2021 09:08:36
Klopp is probably lamenting his luck but he can come across as an incredibly sore loser. but losing both starting cbs and a third who is made of crisps has definitely bought us down a peg or two. City struggled without laporte last year so its hardly surprising but its made it a very interesting season.

As for Henderson he is absolutely crucial to our side, I said it before on our page. People thought it was hard to replace Gerrard, just wait until we need to replace Henderson.

So another stalemate.

I thought we did well first half but didn't get that elusive goal and didn't really have a clear opening.

Second half you had the better chances pogba in particular and you defended well by throwing yourself in front of everything.

A draw is probably fair but neither side particularly happy with it. On paper our defence could be got at but at no point was there sustained pressure.

Either way we move on and do it all again next week.


1.) 17 Jan 2021 20:11:40
Good post.

There was a reluctance to attack at times, but both defences prevailed.

2.) 17 Jan 2021 21:57:00
Wyred sorry for throwing ourselves in front of everything. We should have kept out of yer way😂.

3.) 17 Jan 2021 22:40:25
🤣🤣 my point leahy was they played well after all the questions they got before a ball was kicked, mainly baily being dropped for lindelof.

Either way neither side did enough to win it.

4.) 18 Jan 2021 05:18:35
Result favors City, who I think will go on to be champions now.



02 Nov 2020 08:32:53
I thought I’d throw my two pence in to your current state of affairs.

You have a decent squad but you have a few players holding it back to it’s full potential. Pogba is the ultimate luxury player, he strolls around without a care in the world and effectively makes you play with 10 apart from the few minutes a game where he tries to do something for his highlight reel. G Nev summed it up perfectly before the game when he said Ole is somewhat forced to play him. If he benches him and doesn’t get results everyone will be calling for him to play, your problem is half the reason your not getting results or consistency is because he’s holding you back! Should of sold him in the summer imo.

Maguire can not play in the system Ole wants but again he gets played because of his price tag. You have two full backs one that can’t attack and the other that is half decent at both attacking at defending.

But you have a frontline that is very good and someone behind them who can supply them but you seem to keep playing a system to try and fit both Fernandes and pogba. Personally I’d build a system that gets the best out of Fernandes before he gets sick of it and leaves.

As for Ole, it was his attitude more then anything that concerns me. At half time you clearly needed to change tactics and possibly personnel. But he just saunters down the touchline without a care in the world. Top managers eek out everything from that 15 minutes, ex looked like someone who was just going through the motions.

But your problem isn’t Ole, your problem is there is no strategy or plan from a footballing aspect by the club. If, more likely when, Ole gets booted a new guy will come in with players from Moyes, Mou, LVG and Ole. It takes time to then assemble a team that suits their vision, but if it doesn’t happen within 18 months to two years the cycle gets repeated.

Their needs to be a blueprint of how united want to play and then a coach bought in to make it happen and get the best out of them. Then if it doesn’t work you find someone who can fit that plan rather then tear the whole thing up and start again.

To get you back competing it will take a couple of years but if you keep falling into the same trap it will take much longer.


1.) 02 Nov 2020 09:13:42
Surely its down to the coach to come up with and implement the style of play.

Pardon my igonarance but its not tom werner, john henry, linda henry or michael edwards who come up with the style of play that liverpool play. Surely its klopp who wants to play out from the back, press high, play with attacking full backs and fast goalscoring wingers.

I honestly don't think the sheik from abu dhabi or bergiristein or soriano has come up with man citys style of play. Maybe just maybe its pep guardiola who wants to play out from the back with inverted full backs, progress the play through the third and create huge amounts of chances.

2.) 02 Nov 2020 09:38:55
It was klopp but when they got him in they let him have the time to do what he felt was required to improve the team.

If you are switching manager or coach every 18 months because they aren't getting the results then the style needs to run through the club or you will just be bouncing between styles with a mishmash of players and before you know it its been decades rather then years for a title drought.

If the club can find someone that can implement there own style and have the trust to pull it round then great. I just don't think a manager/ coach will get that time at the minute.

Ole had the new manager bounce before it went flat and then another run earlier this year, what's to say it won't happen again?

3.) 02 Nov 2020 10:00:22
He is rubbish has no plan 100 games in and still no identity.
He is an amature manager.

4.) 02 Nov 2020 10:10:48
It would suit all our close rivals to keep Ole as manager as long as possible. Brighton, West Brom, West Ham, Sheffield United, even Palace must want it.

5.) 02 Nov 2020 10:28:22
I don't want United to sack managers every couple of years but this has to be balanced by an understanding of what is being built and what is the plan. In my opinion, there isn't really any direction or plan moving forward.

If we'd had the same results but you could see a coherent style of play both in and out of possession, I'd likely not be looking to bring in a new manager. That for me is the biggest issue with what is being produced on the pitch at United just now. Counter attack was the only threat we had in Ole's first 10 games and it still is the only threat we really have. LVG and Jose could hardly go down as brilliant United managers but it did seem that the message from the training pitch made its way to the game, whether fans liked it or not and whether it was successful or not.

100 games Ole has now had in charge with around 2 years as manager. He doesn't know his best team, he doesn't know his best formation. When we are in possession, we don't have any noticeable style of play, everything looks to be off the cuff which was a massive criticism of Mourinho and when we are out of possession, do we press, do we drop back, do we all press or no-one? It's honestly not clear as we seem to do both but neither at the same time.

Has he been backed in the transfer market? Yes and no. He hasn't got everyone he seemed to want but ultimately he has been able to spend over £200m since summer 2019 which is one of the highest totals in Europe in that time. This squad is also better than the one LVG or Jose had.

Ole should be commended as he did bring back a bit of good feeling around the club, he did oversee the sales of players who most agreed were either not good enough or didn't fit. He's also phased out players who we haven't managed to sell but again who don't look to either fit or be good enough like Lingard, Jones, Rojo, Pereira etc.

If we take emotion out of it, I can't see too much evidence that shows Ole is turning the squad around or that there is an idea of how we want to play in the next game or in a couple of years time.

I know there has probably been plenty written about him on here but can I just say what a man Marcus Rashford is.

To make a stand against child hunger the way he has is nothing short of brilliant and a true inspiration to fellow young footballers coming through the ranks.

These footballers have the ability to make real change and it's fantastic to see someone use it. Regardless of what is going on we are one of the luckiest countries in the world and there should be no need for a child to go hungry.

i don't think anyone can speak of the lad highly enough and I wish him all the success in the world. Things like this are much bigger then football rivalries and I would be amazed if the lad doesn't get the fantastic reception he deserves at every ground when fans return.


1.) 23 Oct 2020 15:02:03
Inspirational. A real role model.

2.) 23 Oct 2020 15:05:21

I’d imagine he will get a decent reception at most places, there will be plenty where he doesn’t I’m sure but I don’t think in any way that he is doing this so people like him, he’s doing it because of what he believes and the relentless of what he is doing is unbelievable and amazing.

3.) 23 Oct 2020 15:14:52
Of course not GDS2 he isn't that type of character, his actions alone show that. But the lad deserves to be recognised for what he is doing, many have shown that you can sit by and let it happen.

4.) 23 Oct 2020 22:30:08
Told to concentrate on his football and gets the winner against PSG.
Next day he’s feeding kids in need.
What a man. Honestly cannot be more proud of him. When he hangs his boots up, even if he wins if all, this will always be his biggest achievement.



25 Aug 2020 19:46:20
So Maguire has been found guilty and I’m not here to sharpen the knives.

Maguire is your captain and I get the club need to stand by him but they need to be careful.

I know it’s a different scenario but we did similar with Suarez and look how that worked for us.

I do think maguire has done wrong but if his story is true you could argue some of it was justified but as it stands he has been guilty and if it was me, or it was liverpool captain I would take him out of the limelight and remove the captains armband away from him. If this is still up in the air come the start of the season the media and limelight on the club will be massive. Then after this has run it’s course it can be reassessed.

Plus if the appeal isn’t overturned the club should have some damage limitation in place. Again we stood by Suárez and it massively backfired in our face.

In regards to England I’d take him out the squad short term, for damage limitation and to protect him. If he does anything wrong in the game the media will be on him like a tonne of bricks. Making his situation even worse.

The situation is tough for all parties but united have themselves to protect too and can’t drop him like a potato but back him too much and it could go the other way and negatively effect United.


1.) 25 Aug 2020 19:59:32
WYred did gerrard get arrested .
Thd media will love it, but it will blow over .
The bloke has been a prat but thankfully no one has been seriously hurt.

2.) 25 Aug 2020 20:08:13
Previous captains rooney keane and cantona all were sputtered by the club as was gerard so it will be ok.
Not ideal and he may well lose the captaincy but life will go on.

3.) 25 Aug 2020 20:09:52
Decent post mate.

We’ve seen countless things like this in the past, even at the club. Keane and cantona for examples. I agree he probably shouldn’t be captain now, but I think it’ll come down to his mind frame and whether he plays. It’s very hard for any of us to comment on this case, as to be honest I doubt many of us have knowledge of the Greek judicial system.

I think what the club does next is crucial, we tend to stick by players and support them as best we can and I think this should be done for maguire. Not one of us where there, and once there’s a proper appeal we may well get a better picture. But right now what we get released from the case are the headlines and the things that grab the attention. That’s one thing that was heavily criticised by a judge in the case of an Ulster rugby player (a completely set of circumstances again, but if anyone is familiar with it they may see my point) .

Personally, if maguire comes back and plays and works hard for the team, that’s what matters. When he’s on the pitch he has my backing, if he’s guilty and I think the appeal will determine that better, then I’d be disappointed in him. The guy will be going through hell right now too.

4.) 25 Aug 2020 20:12:24
ken i agree, opposition fans and thd media will love it and why not. But it will blow over.

5.) 25 Aug 2020 20:20:53
I think I will wait for the full story to emerge with this one. If Maguire has done what has been alleged then I have no sympathy and he deserves all the greif he gets.

However, all this doesn't quite add up for me. Looking at the quotes, things just seem a little strange to me. I appreciate there are language barriers, but Maguire is supposed to have called himself "the leader of Manchester United", and got angry after being "hit on his golden leg".
Do they sound like genuine quotes? And then the prosecution submitting their evidence late the night before the trial, leaving the defence very little time to digest the 'allefed" evidence, and being denied a postponement.
Sound a bit if a kangaroo court to me. I may be completely wrong, and if so then I will be first to admit I am wrong, but I don't think we've heard the last of this, not by a long shot.

6.) 25 Aug 2020 20:27:46
Jred, itll be the media that get the most out of all this, bet skysportsnews haven't had this many views for months. As a rival fan, I'm interested how it plays out but don't intend to mock united fans for it.

It has clearly happened on both sides and will blow over but the club need to protect themselves imo as they could end up with egg on their face.

Before all this he wouldn't of been my pick of captain as, from what I've seen, I don't think he's a big enough leader. Now, the captain represents the club and to protect both parties the smart move would be to take it away.

Also Gerrard was a prat away from the pitch apparently but it wasnt as well known when he was captain. But just because our former captain wasn't a great role model doesn't automatically mean Maguire is exempt and can be immune from criticism.

7.) 25 Aug 2020 20:16:37
caolan I think your right but people will and are very quick to judge .
Bug that's a good post imo.

8.) 25 Aug 2020 20:38:59
WYRED I agree with that, although if I'm honest i probably would mock liverpool fans if roles where reversed.
Nothing personal just football fan banter.

9.) 25 Aug 2020 20:54:45
They saw a millionaire footballer and got publicity from
It. Greek authorities are as corrupt as our own, if maguire offered them Money they would of snapped his hands off it’s a load of rubbish and maguire will win his appeal. If it was genuine it wouldn’t me concluded it less than a week.

10.) 25 Aug 2020 22:01:15
Fair enough for being honest mate, I won’t because his actions don’t reflect you guys.

But he has put the clubs name in lights for the wrong reason the club should do everything to put the fire out as the other players don’t deserve the pressure.

As for the case and corruption etc we all have no idea and it’s all speculation. The police have claimed he said things and it’ll be very hard to prove otherwise without cctv or independent witnesses.

just to add to that, which decisions were dodgy? surely not the first one and the second its mike dean, even sky sports were having a dig about how he loves the drama. Even if it was wrong they were hardly going to score 6 and get back in the game 🤣.

I'm guessing this is tounge and cheek right?

There is still a long way to go in the battle for the title, personally I think City will win it, and nothing is won in January. But as I've said before if you do win it I'll be one of the first to say well done. You don't win a league by accident or luck.

Unfortunately some posters over react, we have been spoilt the last couple of years and this is probably our first blip since klopps first season. It can happen to anyone its now about how they react hopefully against you on the weekend!
