Ole KILLING this club

Ole did everything to cost us the game. He’s terrible.

Martial played well. Lazy cunt.

A win is a win.   Its a little concerning just how much of the ball City had in the second half.  It was pretty embarrassing.   Fortunately though they created very little.    But at least we showed some bollocks and didnt cave in.

Sometimes football isn't about who has most of the ball, it's about moments and we certainly took advantage of ours across the 90 minutes today. We were aggressive. This team is never going to outplay City but we out fought them in every department at half time they had, had 1 shot 😂 and in the second half they were better but we still never really looked troubled and Ole made the correct substitutes. Igahlo and Scott heavily involved in the goal and took Williams out of the way of Mahrez.

Damn Liverpool supporter. You must be, the way it hurts you every time we don't actually get a 'dickin'. Only thing that makes sense.

Martial was different class today, not for his forward play alone but for his workrate and desire in all areas. Bruno arrival has brought belief. Lets get shot of Pogba quicksmart and use the money wisely.

We all know that we are far from the finished article, but we don't look the woeful side we were before Christmas, and we now have a side that we can build on without terrible rash transfers.

Tale of the tape 

  • United are unbeaten in their last 10 games (W7 D3); their longest run without defeat since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first 11 games in charge.
  • This is the second time in Pep Guardiola's managerial career that he has suffered three defeats against a specific opponent in a single season (also versus Liverpool in 2017-18).
  • Anthony Martial is only the second United player to score in three consecutive Premier League starts in Manchester derbies, and the first since Eric Cantona netted in five in a row between March 1993 and April 1996.
  • Since making his debut in the competition on 1 February, United's Bruno Fernandes has been directly involved in more goals in the Premier League than any other player (five - two goals and three assists).

City battered us all 2nd half, man..

which made the 2nd goal even sweeter...

They dominated possession, but we defended superbly. Apart from Aguero's ruled out equaliser, there wasn't that much of a goal threat from them. We easily could've had another two or three goals if the front two's decision making had been better, and we should've had a penalty.
