    This is because the next side playing Newcastle will get them serious as all of the sides played Newcastle (except Mous's bunch of clowns) in the last 4 months so far. One of the most wrong myths on here is that lower sides are raising their games playing United. The truth is completely different.United are not focused &good enough so the opposition sides smell the opportunities to grab points and glory.

    I’m getting the impression that people would much rather be “right” than see him do well for us.... Truely sad state of affairs.

    Paul Pogba 2017/18

    League and club record signing on eye watering salary, who's never off social media, has a different haircut every week, his own emoji, #POGBACK, and there's some mystery about why people get pissed off when he goes missing in a game? Mourinho is an idiot for playing him in a double pivot, but if he was as good as some people on here would have you believe, never mind how much the club paid for him and is paying him in wages, he should still be dominating games, and not just against Stoke. He's not going to get into the team of the year, he's not even in the top 5 midfielders in the league, and he's Rooneying about the place. The worst bit is that this was patently obvious to anyone who had actually watched him regularly in Italy or for France. Symptomatic of everything that's wrong with football in general, and this club in particular.

    Romelu Lukaku 2017/18

    He was very good yesterday, and took both goals really well. The ultimate flat track bully, though. His stats are padded by FA Cup goals against Huddersfield (17th), Yeovil (League Two), and Derby (Championship), and in the CL against Basel and CSKA Moscow. His league record is actually pretty underwhelming: 12 goals (7th, behind Kane, Salah, Aguero, Sterling, Vardy, and Firmino), having played more minutes than anyone above him except Vardy, who has played 14 minutes more and scored one more goal. His minutes per goal is pretty poor (188): about half as good as Kane (97), Salah (93), or Aguero (85). Quite a bit worse than Sterling (128) too. In fact, it's worse than any other centre forward who has scored 7 or more goals, except Lacazette (202). Rooney (164) and Glenn Murray (185) have been more efficient. Even Martial (164) and Lingard (183) have a better rate in our squad, despite not playing up top. Hazard has played 644 fewer minutes, and scored 1 less goal. Morata has played 700 fewer minutes (nearly 8 full games), and scored only 2 less goals. 0 goals against the top 6 sides. In fact, the highest placed team he's scored against is Everton, in 9th. He also has 1 against Bournemouth, in 10th. That means that 83% of his goals have come against sides in the bottom half of the table. He has 2 against Stoke, 1 against Southampton, and 1 against West Brom, so a third of his goals have come against sides currently in the relegation zone. Three teams (Palace, Swansea, and Huddersfield), are only one point ahead of 18th placed Southampton, and he has a goal against each of them, accounting for more than half of his total.

    So... you're bottom of the league and go to Spain for a bit of warm weather training. Randomly, four of your most senior players decide to rob a taxi and take the piss. FFS. Gareth Barry is the leading PL appearance maker and Jonny Evans was being linked with City and Arsenal a few weeks ago! They're in their 30s. 😂 Jake Livermore might have had a family bereavement in recent months, but he is constantly involved in off the field antics. Tested positive for cocaine, and now this. They are doomed if they don't go on a massive run of wins.

    VAR - yes or no?

    Any decision made, whether its in football, business or in your home, will be a more informed one, if you have more tools and information at your disposal. But the addition of tools and information also comes with it a price. You cannot gain something for nothing. With the introduction of VAR, referees will have access to video footage which in many cases, makes the decision easier to make. But the price you pay is that this will incur a delay to the game i.e. it takes time to process the information. Consider an example where a goal is scored and VAR is used by the referees to confirm the goal. This incurs a one second delay between the time the ball crosses the line and the time the referee announces the decision. I believe it would be difficult to find many fans who would complain about that delay. Consider now the example yesterday, where the delay was a few minutes. Although the correct decision was made, the delay has caused controversy. At some point, the FA need to establish a maximum allowable delay time which the majority of fans would be happy with. Unfortunately there can be no maximum (finite) delay which could be imposed where you could state, with certainty, that all decisions using VAR, will have been made. This is because there will always be underlying errors in technology - you cannot make anything perfect, and thus there will always be some statistical uncertainty in its usage, no matter how small. This is without even considering the fact that a human still has a final say in the matter, and the error brought about by human involvement in the decision making process. However it may be possible to provide a confidence level, that 95% of all decisions will be made, within the maximum "allowable" delay time. What needs to happen now is first, an understanding of what the tool is and what it is not. The latter is important, perhaps moreso than the former. We then need a decision to be made as to what is an acceptable time to wait. It then needs to be demonstrated that all referees can use the technology and make a decision within that acceptable time, for most circumstances, say 95% of the time. Once this has been achieved, the technology chould then be rolled out into more domestic games.

    Ridiculous that it hasn't been implemented already. The technology is there - use it. People are angry because it cost us a goal. That's human nature, but that doesn't make it rational. Technology by its nature can give a more accurate result than one set of eyes observing something once. If you refer something to technology that can tell if something is an inch offside, then it's offside. No point having the tech if you don't use it, and no point implementing something with that ability and then complaining that it's too accurate.

    Almost impossible to overstate how important he’s been this season. We’d in real trouble without him. Mourinho should be at The Hague for playing him behind Smalling and Jones.

    One of the biggest games of the season for me. Going out in this tie would place tremendous pressure on Jose. Our form has been poor and we need a morale boosting win.

    Barry is a dark horse. Remember he and a bunch of City players ended up at a student house party in Scotland? He seems quiet and professional and then he's involved in stuff like this.

    Do you trust Mourinho?

    The league is gone and realistically there's no chance of the CL. So any debate over improvement is rendered moot. Looking to the future, do we have a chance of A. winning major honours and B. playing well while doing it? The answer is a likely no. His approach to big games leaves us little chance of winning and therefore leaves us chasing ground against other teams. At any transfer window we could lose our best player, and recruitment in key positions leaves one of the most expensive defenders ever on the bench (and is probably shite anyway), our record signing going missing or worse, playing horribly, against any half decent side and a striker who the term flat track bully was invented for. We won't win anything of note while these players take up key roles in the squad.

    That's not what I said. Pulis improved Palace after he took over. Mourinho has been seriously unimpressive, especially considering the money he's spent and is earning. £75m+ on Lukaku £90m to play Pogba in a double pivot £30m on Lindelof to sit on the bench while Smalling and Jones start. He's a miserable, negative bastard. I'm sure there are at least a dozen managers who could have us in a dogfight for the top four after spending that kind of money, without the negativity and media nonsense.

    I was on the sign him up bus as well. His talent was so obvious - Especially when we played him. He was so attainable, it was our weakest position and if nothing else at least he'd stop destroying us. Ferguson's transfer policy from 2009-2012 was the greatest thing that happened our PL rivals. It restored balance at a time where we could have crushed them. Fergie out.

    Paul Pogba 2017/18

    Do people not see how much we clearly miss him when he isn't on the pitch? Even in his so called awful performances - We immediately died as an attacking force when he was taken off after creating some good opening with him on. Our attacking displays through his injuries and suspension are equally pathetic. Do people think this is just a coincidence? I would love to see our chances created or xG, whatever statistic you want with Pogba and without. I'd pretty much guarantee there's an astounding difference. The manager needs to take responsibility - He's a phenomenal, rare talent who we have to be getting more out of. He's an attacking player - Let him attack.

    Summer clearance

    He could but don’t think he would like that. Griezmann isn’t what we need. We don’t need more cowardly Frenchmen. He’s a very good player, but a bit of a luxury. Leon Bailey, Gelson Martins and Pulisic are players we should be looking at. I’d like to see Chong fast-tracked to the first team, though. He’s exactly what we need in attack. Fast, direct and a goal threat.

    A totally self-inflected spiral. It's natural for Pogba to expect to be the highest paid member of the squad, even if he does little to justify it. This is also why people laughing at City for saying they couldn't afford Sanchez completely miss the point.

    If this salary gossip is true, it goes to show how far the Bosman ruling is now hammering the game. If every time a new player’s wages becomes an excuse for a pay rise, we will end up in a stupid spiral of absurd limits.
