  1. I wouldnt disagree with that. I just think some are losing more than their shit when, let's be honest, these last 3 years the players have exceeded our expectations.
  2. Yeah did you call him a brain dead idiot after the derby goal, the winner against barcelona and the 2nd in the CL final? Im as gutted as anyone he smacked the clear chance against the bar. It's symptomatic of our form right now. Any one of Sadio, Mo, Bobby or anyone else could have messed that chance up last night.

    Utd (A) FA Cup - Sun 24/1 - 17:00

    Nah, it's our year in the cup, this year! I can feel it.
  4. Been saying it for some time, far too often we've had the look of trying to walk the ball into the net, only trying to score from 12 yards or less or by nice intricate movement in the box. I remember a city game, not sure who it was against, but in the first few minutes the ball came to Mahrez at an angle in the box. He just smashed it at the goal and it flew in. I said at the time if that had been us, the ball would have either been lofted hopefully into the middle of the box or crossed and pulled back to around the penalty spot. That's what we should have been doing against West Brom, taking a few digs at goal and others instead of the pass, pass, pass, pass. Retaining possession is great and important but you need to stretch teams who just want to sit deep. You've also got to move the ball quickly and accurately. Taking a few shots is also a good idea.

    Sadio Mane

    To be fair, most of his teammates didnt want the ball either. Im sick of seeing Gini, Trent, Curtis and a few others immediately give the ball back to the player who has just given it them. What happened to pass and move?

    Fans back in stadiums

    August is a long way off and next season will likely start late August with the Euro Championships supposedly being held this year. Given the vaccination programme, Im hopeful fans will be back in stadiums when the next PL season starts. Not sure we'll have full admittance even post vaccine and I think a portion of fans may never return to stadiums by choice.

    Things I can't do that seemingly everyone else can

    Haha, me too! I can remember starting in the infants and they brought this crate of mini milk bottles in, plonked a bottle in front of me, pricked the foil top with a knitting needle, gave me a straw and said drink that! I wasnt thirsty but gave it a go. Before Id drunk half the mini bottle Id had enough! Next thing I know, the teacher is rattling the back of me knuckles with a ruler saying what a naughty boy I was for not drinking all my milk. When ma came to collect me at lunchtime, I said I didnt want to go back again and told her about the milk. She frog marched me back into school to have it out with the headmaster, told him as a baby Id chuck my milk bottle out the pram and wouldnt drink the stuff unless it was in a pudding or 'baby tea'! Headmaster said write a letter and we'll excuse him the milk. To this day, I cant drink plain milk and still prefer my 'baby tea'!

    The players did appeal for the handball. Think there was Trent, Shaq and one other? Carragher's going oh his arm's in a natural place and it's hit close to him blah, blah, fucking blah. Yeah, funny as fuck a pen is given against Gomez at city for the same situation! Rule on handball be changed? Oh, that's ok then!

    Really feel for the boys tonight, they tried hard all night but nothing came off for them. Even if we'd been given 3 pens tonight, you get the feeling we wouldnt have scored 1. Divock should have scored, no doubt about it but even when Mo and Bobby came on, what difference did it make? The link up between them and Sadio was non existent. This team really looks like it's run its course to me. Gini's faffing about over money supposedly. Mo, Sadio and Bobby dont look anything like a striking partnership, if you can have 3 in a partnership. They dont look on the same wave length any more irrespective whether you think they dont get on. Their movement doesnt look anything like you'd expect forwards to be. Sadio just lofts aimless balls into the box, when was the last time he beat anyone dribbling into the box? Bobby's nowhere and Mo goes down a blind alley. I hate being critical of them after all they have achieved for us but they look done. They look like 3 individuals in a team. Maybe they each think if they score it will get the others scoring but that looks a forlorn hope to me right now. All 3 of them look as if they couldnt hit a cow's arse with a banjo even if the cow's arse was 6 inches in front of them. People will be critical of Div tonight with some justification after the home run has gone but, we just weren't scoring. The only thing about long runs is they come to an end. All the fawning by sky over Burnley can fuck off as well. It's not like they played magnificently or created loads of chances. It was a pen that was the difference and I look forward to Mo being given pens when he catches the keeper's leg like that but we all know neither he or any of our players are getting that. Alli doesnt make contact with Barnes, Barnes catches him. Maybe a pen according to the letter of the law but will we get that? There was fucking uproar when Mo was given a pen after the West Ham player kicked his foot so Im not holding my breath. Jurgen needs goals and quickly. Trouble is you cannot see where they are going to come from with the front 3 and Div firing more blanks than a munitions starved Army infantryman. It's just lob an aimless ball into the box or, Trent just slam his cross into the first man. Why the fuck is he taking free kicks when most of them are finding the first defender or row Z? Talking of his crosses, how many has he just lofted into the keeper's arms this season? We had chances in front of goal even after Div's miss and still couldnt find the net. I dont know about signing a centre back, I think we need a forward or two.

    The fuck, people having a go at Jurgen for having a go at the oppo manager who probably tried to get Fab sent off?!

    Yeah piss poor from Souness saying 'Anyone but him (Divock)'! Like Mo, Sadio and Bobby havent missed some easy chances this season. We all know he should have scored but that's just shite punditry by Souey.

    I think our team bus must have run over a few black cats. Hands up who thought Divock was going to smash the back of the net with that breakaway? Why the fuck are we letting Trent take potshots from free kicks when he's been miles off with almost every fucking one all season never mind this game? That double save by Alli around 14 minutes, how come the burnley 'challenge' on that isnt a foul? Schmichel used to get them all day long. Handbags at half time. Im surprised they didnt find a reason to red card Fabinho if they are looking at that for 'violent conduct'! Fuck off, will yous. How about having a word with pope for his time wasting on goal kicks yet again? Money on it, Dean will do fuck all. Come on boys, heads up. You've got to make it happen.
