Man Utd (A) 20/10/19 - Premier League

Recommended Posts

We can all fully expect, that on Sunday, Tyler will be on high alert for another Rashford goal after tonight, claiming his confidence will be sky high, ignoring the fact that the Bulgaria defence are somewhat less accomplished than Virgil & co. This is the best reason that exists to watch it on an alternative channel, for those who have them.

On present form not a single Manc would be in there , but you could argue that Pogba is a better player than Hendo / Gini , and Maguire v Matip is a contest. De Gea is on a steep descent & Wan-Bissaka definitely behind Trent.

Matip is a much better footballer than the Fod. It's not even close. 

 

Pogba on a good day can be better than Gini or Hendo, but you couldn't count on him. Our lads are far more consistent.

I'm only surprised that it's not that nice unbiased Manchester person from Manchester, Anthony Manchestaylor

He's been busy gifting dodgy penalties to Cristiano Ronaldo tonight; y'know, for old time's sake.

Too much overconfidence from our fans and too much dread from the mancs - not giving me a good feeling. I think this will be much closer than people think. Our record there stinks and our performance there last season was shockingly bad, considering all the injuries they picked up during the game AND how badly we needed to win. It's just a shit place for us to go. They will raise their game massively and I reckon it could be another dull draw.

We always seem to have played them after an international break the last few years with some of our players not getting back until a day or 2 before. Seem to remember the club flying them back on a private jet straight after the internationals more than once, to get them back ASAP. Games after the international are usually shit and cagey with most of the players from both teams fatigued. We gave them too much respect last year.

This time is different. Our players will be well rested, Salah has had 2 weeks off, Mane would have had 10 days off, the rest will have all had best part of a week off. We’re so much better than them. they can’t score, their Midfield is shocking and their defence is shit. Im never ever confident over this fixture but given the circumstances, give them zero respect, go out an fucking blitz them. I can see no other outcome but a draw.

I'm surprised Solskjaer hasn't been binned before this to give them that new manager buzz. I would have hated Allegri to be there now. I do think we will put the final nail in sperm of gollums coffin though.

Add to this the fact that Klopp has had a fortnight to do his homework on the opposition.

It’s maddening how we consistently play so badly there, our players touch goes to shit, people taking two or three two many touches, lofted shite aimless balls. Our front 3 have been consistently brutal there. We have nothing to fear here, they’re absolutely hopeless and it absolutely turmoil. Need front 3 to deliver here and ensure Trent and Robbo see as much as ball as possible and we’ll beat these. If we can score in first 30 I expect us to win comfortably, they will implode.

Just fucking win.

 

As many others have said on here, a shitty 1-0 will do, but I'd love to annihilate them.

 

 

I'd settle for 93 dull, cagey, goalless minutes, followed by their keeper fucking up and gifting Origi a goal.

    • What? What the fuck is this clown talking about in the Guardian comments section on Ronay’s Silva dissection? They love to give themselves more relevance than they have,  
       
    • It's great news that we have two players fit and raring to go. 
    • A bullish Xherdan Shaqiri has said that he is ready for more game time after his star showing against Everton in the Reds 5-2 victory on Wednesday evening.

      The Swiss star was a surprise selection in the starting lineup especially when you take into account that he had not started a league game since the end of January and his last start in all competitions came on that memorable night on the 7th of May against Barcelona.

      Before Wednesday night, Shaqiri played a grand total of 25 minutes in all competitions with his longest run-out coming in the Community Shield against Man City.

      A long running battle with a calf injury has been the main reason for his lack of regular first-team action during this campaign, but after scoring his first goal in nearly a year and displaying his sublime skill, Shaq has made it known to all concerned including his manager that he is well and truly back.

      The Echo reported the popular utility player as saying:

      “ I’m ready, I think the coach saw that too in training,"

      "I trained very well and today he gave me the chance and I think I played very well.

      “ At the end of the day it’s important to win games with my team, we won it as a team, and obviously when I can contribute it’s always good. 

      “Let’s hope for more games!"
        Shaqiri said despite the lack of minutes, rust was never a issue and he felt at home on the pitch.  

      “ You know me and how I play, so it’s nothing new!

      “I’m an instinctive footballer, so I like to play good football if I feel good. I felt good so I tried some things and it went well.

      “ I was very happy to score after a long time. It was a good feeling."

      While the injury was undoubtedly a frustrating time for the 28 year-old, he counted his blessings that it was not something more serious like a ligament injury.

      “ I’ve been injured [but] thank God I don’t have knee problems or something. I had some muscle problems so I just needed a few weeks to recover well.

      “The calf is very dangerous to get another injury and I had this so obviously it was not nice but I stayed positive and tried to come back. 

      “I worked very hard in the gym and with the fitness coaches to come back and be ready when the coach needs me. I’m feeling good."

      Shaqiri was a player that Jürgen Klopp turned to around this time last season and he certainly did not let his manager down turning in some special performances against Man United and Arsenal in particular.

      He is well aware of the jam packed fixture list during this month and says it is great to be option for his manager again.

      "Everybody knows that it’s a busy period now with a lot of games coming up, [so] I’m very happy to be back. I’m feeling fresh, feeling good, and I think you saw that.

      “We know each other very well, we train every day together, the team stays like last season even when the coach makes some changes - five changes, I think.

      “He changed the formation a little bit so it was not simple but we managed that very well today against a good side.

      . [It’s] a derby obviously so we wanted to keep the city red, so it was a very important win.
