    Rumours of a takeover brewing by the Saudis.

    Oh. :( Would have to be an eye watering amount of magic beans to persuade the glazers to sell of the cash cow that is united plc.

    Comes to something when it's a case of 'better the asset stripping, socially inadequate monster you know'.

    Doubt that they will sell, but a united backed by Saudi money and all the income streams we already have would be immensely strong. Backed with all that money we'd have a reasonable chance of getting a draw against Brighton.

    I doubt the Saudi takeover will go ahead anytime soon :hmm:

    Away to Chelski will be interesting. Hopefully an ill disciplined draw :thumbs: is Jose allowed on the touchline?

    What a total fucking cunt. If I ran football, diving, faking players would have to immediately suffer violence commensurate with their reaction.

    Good second half today after an abject showing in the first 45 minutes and great to get a late winner from young Marcus.

    The introduction of Herrera helped turned the game. How he is not a regular starter is more than puzzling. Particularly as Matic, for whatever reason (fatigue?) is visibly struggling in the middle. But the idea that Fred ought to be first choice is bizarre. MEN awarded him a 1 or his efforts on Saturday, and that might have been a generous assessment of his overall contribution so far. He's not disciplined, doesn't tackle, dribble, assist or score. No wonder Jose is complaining about the scouting system. Some will argue that he needs time to adapt but the harsh truth is he doesn't look anything like a £50 million footballer.

    One of the very best ever away Man Utd results in Europe - ever.

    I honestly think that without Fellaini you'd never be near that comeback. I only watched a tiny bit of the match, starting just before him and Mata came on. He scared the shit out of the Juve defence. Then Mata got the FK and boom, it was the Mo Show-time.

    Impressive result all the same.

    What you have to take into account is that a 'no tackling, no tracking,' Utd can make anyone look good on their day. Newcastle were two up at OT at half time. While for much of the first half Bournemouth were made to look like world beaters too. In the second half both teams looked like relegation candidates, which Newcastle are of course. Someone, or something flipped the switch against Chelsea in the second half too. The switch wasn't flipped yesterday. In the same way it wasn't flipped against West Ham, when Utd were again woeful across the entire game. So finding what it is or who can trip is the key to sustained revival.
