    Diogo Dalot

    Has potential. Nice to see attacks actually go down the right ending with a chance created, gives the team more balance as we nearly always create down the left.

    He seems to think being from Liverpool means you're a minority Few interesting tweets from someone so opposed to geographical stereotyping though

    It was hit right at him? Shocking finish from the Milik.

    I know we've got a few pep fans on this forum and rightly so. However comments like this don't exactly back up the idea that he brings youth through on the regular.

    Diogo Dalot

    Benefits Mata greatly. Dalot basically took over the whole right side against Fulham. Stayed high and wide. This enabled Mata to cut inside. Now it’s more like City’s setup. Bernardo Silva would be nothing without Walker on the outside of him. Now Mata will hopefully have a similar presence backing him up.

    Valencia dominating us. Thank christ that we somehow beat Juve and these lost to YBB. I suppose that we wouldn't be fielding this side if we had to win but I'm not so confident that we would be faring much better with Jose's boys...

    Batsh..Batus....Batshui....matey should really have scored. Wow, Pogba almost broke into a walk there.

    Yes he is - but only after SAF has pulled on his wellies and walked through copious amounts of pigshit followed by trawling through some cowshit and finally plain old street dogshit. Only then is Jose fit to lick his shoes because after putting the fans through the various degrees of shit, this would be the perfect just desserts for him.

    They're wanking themselves stupid over this save tonight. I can't deny its a good save he got out nice and quick to lessen the space but fuck me its really not the amazing world class wonder save the cultists are making it out to be, its literally hit at his chest.

    UCL - Game 6 - Valencia vs Man Utd

    The midfield we've been crying out for is played in a dead rubber because the manager doesn't trust them in a game that's worth something. Wonderful.

    Romelu Lukaku 2018/19

    https://www.skysports.com/football/news/29326/11577547/gary-neville-on-romelu-lukaku-verdict-on-strikers-weight-issue Some good points here. It raises some valid questions: How have we allowed a player to stay overweight for 3/4 months since the start of the season? How has it taken him so long to lose the weight? And it doesn't even look like he has lost it all yet. He still looks overweight. If the answer to the above q's is that they've only recognised it recently, then how and why on earth has it taken so long to recognise it!? What does that say about the staff and coaches? Not to mention the player himself!

    No-one trusts Mourinho

    Nope, no-one trusts him. Or at least I don't. I did begrudgingly up until about October of this season, but then results mirrored performances and now we are where we deserve to be and the honeymoon is well and truly over. And I say begrudgingly because our performances have been fairly consistent over the last two years too - we're the only team in the division that plays a stodgy, boring game based on the percentages and not one that goes for the throat. Then when we do try to go for the throat, it all looks so haphazard and discombobulated that it's painfully obvious that there is no plan for forward-thinking football, so much so you really have to ask yourself what it is that goes on during training - do they all sit in a circle holding hands singing kumbaya with the hope that some sort of cosmic connectivity with each other will spontaneously take place? Because that's what it looks like out on the pitch. It was only this weekend that some sort of cohesion, mostly through the sparsely-used Mata, was there to see but that was because Fulham are rubbish and gave us some measure of respect for whatever reason. We won't get that kind of space against Liverpool and we most certainly won't be shown any respect nor will we be playing attacking, pressing football because Mourinho will revert to type and park the bus against a side he feels is superior to us. Another vote of confidence from the man who inspires none.

    He reminds me of father Christmas. Wears red but only puts a shift in once a year.

    Yes, I would. Don't even need to think about it. There comes a point when hope of a turnaround is replaced by the reality that the turnaround quite simply isn't going to happen and we're long past that point in my opinion. We're basically turning into City prior to the ADG takeover and celebrating about the scraps of winning a derby while still being nowhere near them in the league and the same goes for this Liverpool game if we win - we'll crow about beating them and they'll probably lose top spot were this to happen, but it still doesn't change where we are(or indeed where they are in comparison to us) and would only serve as another Mourinho self clap on the back that he masterminded it. However, the only thing that a victory against LFC and a run of good results up to the New Year would achieve is to relieve the pressure on Mourinho to be sacked straight away, even though I think that he should have been sacked in the first international break after the Newcastle game as we were abysmal up to then and got a couple of results then to relieve the pressure. What's essentially going to happen is that he's going to stay until March at least when the CL is well and truly gone and the hopes of reaching the top four have all but disappeared no matter what the results for the rest of December. United could get stuffed in each game and he'll still be there because the board won't sack him until everything is mathematically gone - this is blatantly obvious and I would go so far as to say that they've probably already eyed and/or interviewed a replacement for this impending eventuality. If we had a proactive board he'd be gone already but since we don't, it's a moot point really. But if losing to Liverpool was followed by three draws like what happened after losing to City and it was a case of should we or shouldn't we get rid now or in the summer, I'd still say now even if it meant someone like Carrick being in charge until whoever the next man is supposed to be takes over in May. It's like walking in dogshit and not realising until you've walked halfway through the house and now all the carpets stink of it and had you noticed earlier, you could have cleaned it off before entering the house and it would only be the smell that you couldn't get out of your nose until you stopped thinking about it. But what we've done is essentially the same as going out on the piss, clambering through fields on the way home and not only forgotten to take off our shoes before entering the house, but went into the kitchen to fix a ham & cheese toasty before going to bed and falling asleep with our jeans halfway down our legs and the shoes still on our feet.

    The Jose Mourinho Thread

    Or maybe his angle is that he actually won the league last year because City should be stripped of the title. Actually, the double was won as Chelsea also would be done via FFP. Also makes this season's CL a foregone conclusion so then he can say that he's brought us titles which is what he came here to do. The man's a genius - give him another contract extension, that kind of foresight is uncanny...

    PL Matchday 16: Man Utd vs Fulham

    So Liverpool are the only unbeaten team left in the premiership.....wouldn't it be great for us to take that away from them? Unfortunately, we are so far away from top quality that the chances of that happening are as likely as one of the Liver birds taking to wings and flying off the building. Shame though, if we were just a lot more stable and consistant, it might have been possible!

    Way too easy, Jones just wafted his foot at it, and he was pretty much the only defender who tried anything. Not sure where Marcos had got to.

    UCL - Game 6 - Valencia vs Man Utd

    0-0 masterclass is Tony Pulis territory, but I suppose that's why he's JVP and he would most definitely be more than happy with that despite the fact that we actually need to win just to stay 8pts behind the top four because Spurs, Arsenal & Chelsea will easily beat Burnley, Saints & Brighton respectively and if we draw then that's 10 points behind fourth. It's immaterial really because we could still lose 4-0 and nothing will change except the same feeling as after the City game where we'll see just how far behind the title challengers we are and how much ground we have to make up. And even a 0-0 masterclass wouldn't mask where we are because while a draw at Anfield is never a bad result no matter who you are, the fact that we felt like we had to park the bus is basically saying that Liverpool are so superior to us that we'll be happy to take a point and brag about it. And make no mistake, Jose will brag about it. Christ, this is depressing.

    Cant believe City the stupid bastards losing today. The only thing that keeps me inhaling oxygen and thanking the lord is City winning to stop them horrible dirty scouse bastards winning the league. Sharpen the fuck up Pep for fucks sake.

    Goalkeepers should earn half of what the lowest paid outfield player earns.

    I don't think anyone would argue against him deserving to be the highest paid at the club. It's certainly going to be cheaper (and much easier) than trying to get a replacement.
