    Me neither. For a while I have felt he doesn't like us and the Aguerooo orgasm was ringing in my ears for so long. Still remember him sounding so bitter when RvP burned City with that free kick. :D

    Not sure what to make of that really, he's got a really big job on his hands. Terry leaving means there's no old guard experience to hold the younger players accountable, whilst a lot of the bigger players shown a total lack of balls and immaturity for the first half of the season.

    I'd like him to play the younger players (Loftus-Cheek, Kennedy, Traore, Bamford.. Rahman has looked good, see what that Miazga is all about, Zouma was having a great season till he got injured). I think he also needs to bring in players with the right character (Nainggolan has been mentioned).

    But yeah, he's got a tough one on his hands with players who've shown they can be divas when things go against them.

    Looks like Bayern avoided a tight title race with a 0-0 draw. Can't see them losing a 5 point lead now.

    The Leicester show goes on. If they repeat the same run they had at the end of last season, they will be the champions. I would love to see how Selby "The Chester from Leicester" reacts while watching their recent matches. :)

    Saw bayern vs Dortmund and I was expecting more, such a disappointing match.

    Technically it was a disaster from all or nearly all of the more offensive players, plus some others like Schmelzer. Tactically Borussia was a total disappointment in the second half.

    I don't know much about this Tuchel, but didn't like what I saw. Borussia players were too tired in the second half to threat Bayern with it's speed in counter strikes and he didn't move a finger to try to change that.

    Arsenal runs away from Hull City late with 3 goals in the final 18 minutes for a 4-0 FA Cup win. Two goals each for Giroud and Walcott.

    To be honest, for a 0-0 draw, that was quite a nice game. Both teams had their chances to win.

    Tuchel just came from Mainz, just like Klopp did several years ago. If anything, he and his team deserve credit for pushing Bayern this season. BVB will probably finish 2nd in the Bundesliga, but in previous 3 years Bayern pretty much sealed the league before the winter break. That is not the case now.

    It wasn't a penalty, but there are sooo many worse cases than that. The guy that said it was the worst act of simulation probably started watching football this week.

    Tbh I think it was a penalty, there was definitely contact, maybe a harsh penalty yes, but as Carragher & Henry said there is contact and Benteke goes down because of it, it wasnt a dive. And as you said the bloke who tweeted "the worst act of simulation etc" has really no clue about football, he's actually an Everton fan and works for talksport, no wonder he's full off ****e.

    Anyway can't wait for Thursday now, how do you feel about our clash at Anfield? :p

    I see a 2-2

    all simulations are not created equal. There is not one that is worse than the other. cheating is cheating. The guy has a point, despite his rambling bs.

    Yeah I fear a possible score draw like this, it certainly won't be the end of the world but it would give United the advantage going into the 2nd leg.

    I feel optimistic but generally I always feel optimistic before such derbies lol

    I think it wasn't (no I am not bitter ;)), but larger incidents than that happen a lot more often in other leagues. EPL makes the least mistakes.

    I can't wait either. I think Liverpool will win the 1st leg, but getting an away goal would satisfy me personally. At OT, many great nights have happened before. :)

    Just saw your edit. Well he could have stayed on his feet, sure, but there was contact and it was enough to make him fall while he was running, it's not a dive by any means, maybe a harsh penalty though.

    Fair enough, at least we can both agree that it wasn't a dive!

    Yeah that's what I think too, we will probably win at Anfield but the 2nd leg will be really tough. I'd love a 2-0 win personally :p

    I didn't even see it. That game was not important enough to get my attention. I'm just one of those death penalty for anybody that dives kind of people.

    Hopefully there is a glorious night at Old Trafford. Attack, attack, attack. :p

    ManYoo keep disappointing. No way we're catching manshittie for fourth spot. Heck, even Chelsea might get into champions league above us!

    Not a chance for Chelsea imo, the 10 points isn't totally out of the question, but there are so many teams between them and the top 4. lt's unlikely all of them falter. lf they were 5th and 4th was 10 points ahead? There would be a chance.. not with all the traffic to navigate though.

    For those who watched it, how was the second half? Chelsea ended first better than PSG.

    Nerves are already starting to kick in...lets make it a night to remember, come on Redmen!!




    there is literally 0 chance of Chelsea finishing top4. They'll probably finish 7th or 8th.

    As for yesterday's game, it went as I expected really, congrats to the Parisians!

    Chelsea weren't as dominant as in the first half, but still the better team (they were behind so were obviously the more enterprising). The PSG keeper continued to make great saves and they took their chance up the other end when it came. fair play to them, their quality came through when it counted.

    I really the like the work that Tuchel is doing at Dortmund, and before that at Mainz as well. They have been excellent this season.

    I think that this season Bayern will hold them off in the race for the Bundesliga title. However next season I rate Dortmund's chances of toppling them. Bayern's incoming manager Ancelotti isn't a such great league manager. 3 league titles in about 15 years with Juventus, Milan, Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid is not a failure by any means, but I don't think it's absolutely amazing either.

    Liverpool are giving United a lesson here. De Gea keeping United in it.

    Rashford making big impact at right back. :confused:

    That cutback to Henderson. Pure pro evo soccer magic.

    Well, that was total garbage. At least Suarez left them, we didn't concede more. :D
    Lets see if Old Trafford can still produce a magical night.

    Imagining walking into the changing room and LVG putting me as centre forward. Forgetting that I am the worst outfield player ever.

    I fancy Liverpool to score at Old Trafford. Tie looks over.

    It seems LvG destroys players like Stoichkov said; he is being proven right. Look at Memphis Depay, now a total waste of space. Martial, who should be an exciting prospect, wandering aimlessly. Fellaini running around like a bum....

    Yeah, the wandering aimlessly philosophy of pure unadulterated ****e. You just watch and think, look what Klopp is doing for Liverpool, compared to the LVG United.I know he has/had good record against Liverpool, but this was another of the many bad nights for United. No progress being made.

    I have to laugh.

    Klopp and LVG in the Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen. They have both done a steak.

    Look at that. Fresh, vibrant, stunning, delicious.

    Look at that, Rough, tough, over cooked, over oiled. Why are cornflakes a side dish?

    LVG, give me your jacket, you're done. Get out of my kitchen.

    That weird moment when the Europa League is the least of Spurs concerns because they are competing for the premiership title.

    Every time opposition fans sing that, it comes back to bite them in the ****. I remember most recently when Norwich scored in the 93rd minute, the whole ground started singing that, and two minutes later they were crawling back into their ****ing holes! Oh boy, did I love it!

    I don't know if it was possible to hear them via the telly, but United's away support was a joke the other day, singing about Hilsborough, "the s*n was right" etc. Disgrace of human beings these plonkers.

    Awful seeing anyone making a mockery out of any tragedy. I also saw some City fans (back when we beat them at Etihad in 2012-13) imitating a plane that lost control by waving their arms, not to mention one fan (not sure if he was Liverpool or City fan) getting a "Munich 58" tattoo on his butt. Disgusting.

    Enough is enough. If we don't win the FA Cup now, Van Gaal must be removed. And not with the usual procedure

    but this procedure.

    Ross County win the first major trophy in their 87 year history. 2016 Scottish League Cup Champions. Andy Murray won't be happy, beat his Hibs.
    [​IMG]

    While the FA Cup nearly had 4 teams facing long droughts in the SFs, but United hit back late to secure a QF replay.

    SFs
    Man Utd (last trophy 2013)/ West Ham (1980)
    Everton (1995)
    Watford (no major trophies)
    Palace (no major trophies)

    Ahh, shame West Ham couldn't hold on to their lead for 10 more mins. Although tie is over as far as I'm concerned, United are not winning at Upton Park.

    Yesterday I really wanted Chelsea to knock out Everton, oh well. They won't win the whole thing anyway so i guess it will be even more sweet when they finally bottle it :p:D

    Classic Arsenal :p
