I said it at the weekend, but United are abysmal. Christ knows how they aren't in the bottom half. Outside of 'Pool, Man City and Leicester (who have been pretty hit and miss just recently) the standard is just dire.

Or, the standard has evened out.

I suppose that is another way of looking at it. But considering the amounts they have paid in transfers and presumably pay in wages, they should be thrashing everyone who isn't the teams I mentioned out of sight, rather than looking insipid whilst losing 2-0, to Burnley, at home.

Martial, for example, had a golden chance, but squandered it because he wanted to take 75 touches rather than 1-and-bang from 12 yards out.

And now they bring on Jesse Lingard, who is stealing a living as an "elite" footballer, as the "super-sub". Says it all...

Sports Bar on Talksport will be entertaining with all their fans and Andy Goldstein crying on each others' shoulders. Inevitably, they'll be wanting us to sell Jack and John McGinn to them again.

Pass the popcorn!

I notice Vardy has just turned thirty-three, perhaps he's reaching that stage of his career where a player of his age,style and undoubted pace is going to begin picking up injuries of this type, assuming it is a hamstring problem.
Same age as the retired Gabby

Fuck it. Man U losing is always funny. Also, I understand people wanting West Ham to lose but I'm not particularly overjoyed at Leicester hitting form again.

They play Chelsea the weekend after us. Already missing Vardy, maybe not worth risking a few others midweek...

What’s the betting Pochettino’s first game in charge at United will be at VP?

Man Utd are rubbish! Why is Solskjaer still the Manager??

Because it's extremely funny?

Well hopefully he is still manager when it gets round to our fixture with them.

John McGinns crutch has more skill than Phil Jones.

The commentator Making a remark thatUtd fans leaving early revealing a lot of plastic seats. He could have just said “the plastics are leaving early”.

Rodgers thinks Vardy hasn’t done an hamstring but just whatever it is might ease off over the next few days and he will be fit.

I caused his hamstring to spontaneously heal itself by transferring him out of my FPL team.

West Ham's goal difference coming back towards ours now with Liverpool next up. They are in deep shit. Norwich still playing well but not getting results. Fair play to Burnley, we only played them a few weeks back and they were shocking. Big win for them tonight, showed a bit more backbone than we did at Old Trafford and got the points.
