What a shit goal to lose to.

It's strange to watch utd being good to watch but sloppy at the back.... Exact opposite of most of what I've seen since I was a kid.

We really need a striker in the window or I fear for holding on to top 6 place
And you've got Gary Madine ... can't imagine that will please many Unitedites?

Meanwhile his last two clubs are looking pretty good, Derby and Blues.
I really had Stoke as favourites at the start of the season after that much investment.
Stoke appoint Nathan Jones - resisting the temptation to make a joke about the song, that seems an interesting move. Leaves Luton managerless at the moment ahead of their replay against us next week as well.

We may be seeing you down The Bridge then?

If we win the replay I'd love to be there but as I don't have a season ticket don't think there's much chance. Someone said to me there's only something like a 2,500 away allocation at Chelsea nowadays?

It's the FACup like most clubs we dish out a bigger away allocation for these games. I don't go any more but I think it's about 6,000 for Cup Games. Good luck with the replay anyway and with getting a ticket if you do win.

I'm fucking livid. He's a prick.

Points deduction for Leeds?
would be ridiculous. plenty of teams have done the same thing - palace got fined for it.
And Villa Boas routinely sent out his spies when manager of chelsea - As Frank "outraged" Lampard would have known full well as he was playing for them at the time.
If anything leeds should get extra points for the sheer brilliance of their football against Derby - it was the watching Don Revie's team in their pomp.

hmm - your lot sneaking into second i notice - yorkshire double for promotion?

I'm starting to feel much more confident about keeping in top 6 but top 2 is a real stretch as we don't really have the depth in the squad

6k allocation for Wednesday - with it being switched to the ridiculous ko time of 6pm on Sunday evening as well I may be in with a shout. But if we play like we did last night it could get embarrassing

Bielsa's press briefing over spygate was legendary - one long epic trolling of frank lampard. As someone else on social media media put it -"It could only have been improved if Bielsa ended this presentation by standing up and saying “GOTCHA” to Lampard."
The puffed up self-righteous hypocrisy of some of the managers and commentators is something to behold.

I think statue is needed for that alone even if we collapse for the rest of the season.

Just watched the weekends highlights. I was a bit surprised a Pulis side scored 3 away from home but West Brom gifted Boro 2 of them.

Norwich look solid.

Just listened to the Villa v Blades game on local (Brum) radio. Crazy game but great atmosphere. The Blades fans, 3-0 up were singing (loudly) "are you Wednesday in disguise". The Villa fans really missed a trick not to sing it back to them at the end.

Looking bleak for Bolton :confused:

I had nightmares last night about those goals... Not good enough really

Very big run of games for us coming up and hope we don't have a hangover from pissing that lead away

The Villa fans on the after game phone in were equally as disappointed on account that they were dire for 75 minutes.

I was in my local and there's a few Utd fans also watching the game (we're all in exile in Surrey), they were giving me all the stick for about 70 odd mins.

Just about pissed myself laughing at the end :D

We've all been there to be fair.

Somebody after all, had to make a start
Great game! But any blues fan will tell you that you can't relax at 3.0 up! I remember us winning 4.1 at home to swindon, '93 ish. We were doing the congo all round the tilton, then their manager glen hoddle brought himself on with 20 mins to go. It went 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 then 4.6! Unbelievable, hoddle was brilliant that day.

In other news, looks like we're gonna be hit with a points deduction for ffp breaches, which really sucks in the middle of the season and so close to the playoffs. Still, Che Adams is probs worth £15 to £20 million in todays market though, bet Sheff Utd regret selling him now lol.
