Realistically, I think most of us already know our fate but, may well be confirmed by 2.30pm this Saturday after the West Ham and Watford matches which both kick off at 12.30pm.
I know a few will disagree but I can only go by our pretty pathetic attempts to win matches since the restart.

Nobody expected us to beat Utd. Itís still in our hands though. Iíll still believe we can do it until itís out of our hands. We do look to be down though, but you never know. The worst thing about it all is that I think we deserve to go down for being so shit.

Only watched the last quarter of the game, i get people are upset about the penalty decision but didn't we have a decision go for us two weeks ago when the ball was definately over the line. Diabolical decisions happen every week, not all teams raise the white flag.

Trezeguet both looks, and plays, like a chubby teenage girl.

He is absolutely shit, easily the biggest waste of money last summer.

I know nothing about the standard of play of chubby teenage girls, but I take your point.

I decided to watch it again on motd as I'm a bit of a masochist. Dublin and Cahill both called that pen a joke and pointed out that absolutely no-one who had ever played football would think that was a pen. Cue Solskjaer "I thought it was a pen" I shouted "fuck off ollie" at the telly which scared the bejeesus out of my sleeping Mrs. With that kind of one eyed myopia I think the new Fergie has arrived at OT. Just something else to ruin my already ruined evening. 

Yes, what a c*** Solskjaer is. I hope they bin him off in the summer. But then again, why would they. And also, they'd only end up getting someone really good.

Fuck them, fuck him and fuck our useless bunch of degenerates.

So MOTD says the "Premier League Match Centre"  confirmed three wrong penalty calls just in tonight's games.  They can see it.  We can see it.  Why can't the VARs, with all that modern technology can offer in terms of angles and viewpoints,  see it?  It smacks at the least of lack of integrity and cronyism, At worst it smacks of corruption.  It really does make you wonder what the point is.
It is corruption, how can it be anything else.

Itís absolutely corrupt. They can sit there for four minutes and work out Wesleyís heel is offside in a different phase of the game against Burnley, but they canít see that last night.

They canít get involved when Kevin Friend gets a brown envelope from Crystal Palace.

If that had been the other way around last night, it would have been reversed, 100%.

The only person fatter than McGinn on the pitch was the ref, surely they should be fitter than that.

He looks in really poor condition, heavily legged and lacking mobility.

Special call out to Mings as well for backing off Greenwood, giving him a free shot and holding his bollocks. Shameful.

There is a lot of money resting on Manure being in the Champions League next season, an awful lot of money.

I have just read the post by Ads and I totally agree with him

We had 2 months in lock down to prepare for 10 games and it looks as though most of that time our players watched box sets and ate pizza (apart from Luiz), I don't know what dvds Dean was watching (probably Debbie does Dallas)

The most disappointing thing about last night was after they scored (they were given that penalty), where was our fight and determination to get back into the game we were only losing 1-0, unfortunately it looks as though we have given up.

I agreed with Keane when he talked about about Mings (why was he inside their Half with 30 seconds of the 1st half to go, he ought to have dragged their player down, and gave away a free kick) also when their player took that shot why was Mings holding his bollocks -  someone ought to tell him it is a football not a bullet that is coming towards him!

For sure the most depressing aspect was our reaction after the iffy penalty decision. No fight , no courage , no leadership and seemingly no togetherness. Doesnít augur well for the final 4 matches. I do not include Luiz in this bracket as thought he played well yet again.

I think we are going down but it wonít be confirmed by Saturday at 2.30om, not mathematically anyway, if both West Ham and Watford win theyíll be 7 points clear of us, weíll have 4 games left inc palace on the Sunday.

Watched the game with my villa mad 10 year old, even before the replays he was shouting at the TV that it was a foul by Fernandes. Then he was shouting at the ref that heíd gone 2 mins over stoppage time, before Mings decided to not throw his body on the line. A kid doesnít need replays to see thatís not a penalty, but those fuckers canít see it, stinks.

But the team is also rudderless, the so called spine in the team have completely gone missing in action before and post lockdown. Mings shouts a lot at the other players but then wonít close down a kid on the edge of his box, McGinn has shown a couple of glimpses in the last couple of games but obviously hasnít looked after himself during his recovery and couldnít wait to get off the pitch, and I donít know even where to start with grealish, been poor every game inc and since the cup final. Feck knows whose gonna buy those 3 but I wouldnít be touching them if I was the so called top 4 or 6. Maybe Leicester might buy McGinn because Rodgers wanted him at Celtic.

Trezequet is shite and el Ghazi is too inconsistent and I donít want to see them anywhere near the team for the last 4 games, but itís our so called leaders that have let us down. Smith cannot keep banging the same drum before relegation is confirmed, Archer, Vassilev, Barrie, they might not save us but I bet they would at least show some energy and enthusiasm.
In the cold light of day Iím still as pissed off as I was last night.

Very true - but for me the point is it has happened systematically against Man United for 25 years. Over the season I also think weíve had more go against us than for.
