this is an horrific picture
You have no clue how horrific it is for a Gunner.....
That's not your playing strip is it? It's hideous!
no, that's the training strip
When City were rumoured to be in for him I was nervous - every time someone tackles him I would have feared the worse.
At least that's over for us. Every time he went down it was a very nervous moment. Will never forget the time he insisted on going to a friendly intentional game unfit, played got nobbled and was out for the majority of the season. A friendly match!?! FFS
a 2012/13 thread already!
Someone needs to tell Utd that the friendlies are over. Obviously not a Liverpool fan though.
Underwhelming performance from manchesters second team
So if you win the League you can say City were three points and two goals clear at one point.
Lord Ferg's press conference was amusingly bitter (emphasis added):
United had four shots on target, btw. And no mention of the nailed-on penalty that Jelavic should have had when Valencia tried to Assange him in the first half
Also is the edit quote function broke?
i thought Utd were good as it goes, some of the football particularly in the first half was fantastic though no end product...primarily because Rooney had as bad a game as I can recall and think RVP will push him out sooner rather than later if he continues in this vein which stretches back a good while bar the odd blinder, could be the kick up his increasingly large arse he needs. Think the lack of centrebacks really didn't help, both from a defence point of view and not having Carrick in the middle..dunno how we always make Fellani look world class, he's good though not unplayable as we seem to make him...Kagawa looked great, did he lose the ball? some of his passing was exceptional, De gea was fantastic which says it all and can't say we didn't deserve to lose....still could be worse.... could be a Liverpool or Arsenal fan.
United seemed to want to play through them when a few crosses in the box would have served them better.
(Ex-) Our young Nick Powell did his cause a lot of favours by not even getting on the bench.
I listened to it on 5live. Sounds like Everton were battered in the second half. Well done to them for holding on. Always thought Fellaini should be at a big club, maybe this season he'll break through.
It always seemed to be Cahill who got the headed goals and therefore headlines. Maybe Fellaini will that dude. Always seems to raise his game against the big clubs but have seen him plodding around like a donkey in some games.
If you took that monologue to the Edinburgh fringe you'd win the Perrier (or whatever it's called now) Awardfor outstanding comedy newcomer.
Battered ion the second half no as the shots statistics will tell. Certainly United had the vast majority of possession but it was, as is evdienced by the score, meaningless possession, 21% was in the Everton 'penalty area', 20% in the United 'penalty area' and 59% in the middle. As such clearly Uniteds penetration and attack was a mere 1% better than Everton's. As such 'battered in the second half' is frankly fallacious.
Do you honestly think that a injury prone thirty year old is going to "oust" a twenty five year old who cost five million pounds more?
And (while I'm here) when will you scumbags start a 2012/13 thread....?
I can't believe the fucking injuries have started again.
This bollocks that a) Rooney is 'fat', and b) RVP is there to replace him is all over the press. The notion here is that Rooney's form has been poor for 'a good while' since presumably he was named as runner up as player of the year to the latter at the end of last year? This is also the player that most Prem managers say they would buy first 'money being no object' also last year.
Aternatively he is to be replaced by Kagawa who Fergie sees as a creative midfielder in the Scholes mold.
With the exception of Henry Winter the English press move like a shoal of fucking fish. Once one says something eg Patrick Barclay then they all follow. It sounds like gospel.
It's bad enough to read this ABU trope in every fucking paper under the sun but it takes the biscuit when supposed Utd fans start repeating it.
you reading this wrong, Rooney is not fat, though he looked far from fit against everton, as for RVP replacing him I don't see that for a minute, I do see the arrival of RVP shaking things up a bit and giving him a kick up the backside that I believe he needs. Rooney is class, I don't think he will leave and think him and RVP with Kagawa( my new idol ) behind them will be the best strikeforce in the prem.
I predict 3rd for you this year behind City (1st) and Chelsea (2nd). LFC to pip Arse to 4th.
Everton will finish above the pool, better team
I doubt it, but we'll see.
