    United (H) Post Match Thread

    No matter the players and the tactics, there's always a chance that we lose. That's football. The probability that we'd concede a penalty in the 1st minute was absolutely minimal but it happened and influenced the whole game. Literally nothing guarantees a win and a great performance in...

    United (H) Post Match Thread

    Why didn't Pep play Bernardo? Surely, not because he isn't part of our best XI. Maybe Bernardo was a bit tired from his heroic exploits over the last 3 months and Pep wanted to keep him fresh for the final part of the season while giving Kevin a chance to regain form? Or Pep was also thinking...

    United (H) Post Match Thread

    Think Pep knows better than us that we are stronger with Bernardo right now but probably thought that we will manage to win without him. That was perhaps a bit arrogant on Pep's part. I love Kevin but his bottom level is really poor. None of the other players loses the ball as cheaply as him...

    Points to win the League

    Think this thread is busy because people want to convince themselves that it's done. It isn't though. 4 wins may be enough or perhaps 6 wins. Nobody really knows and it doesn't make much sense to guess. It is what it is. We are very likely to win the title, that's it.

    United (H) Post Match Thread

    Hopefully the loss will be used to draw the right conclusions and to avoid mistakes like today's, both from Pep and the players. Hopefully it will make us stronger. I love Pep but that wasn't our best team right now and he knows it. Got away without Bernardo against West Ham but today he was...

    Liverpool thread 2020/21

    Think they didn't realise how lucky they were last season or even the season before when they were actually playing better. When they won the CL in 2019: how likely was it that they would beat Barca 4:0 without both Salah and Firmino and with both Origi and Wijnaldum (of all players) scoring...

    Very true. If we were threatening and suing journalists, it would only strengthen the prejudices about the non-democratic nature of our owners. It would be a bad OG.

    Points to win the League

    It's likely that even 3 wins will be enough for the title, especially if we win on Sunday. But 'likely' is the key word. Extremely unlikely things happen, especially in a strange season like this. When we drew with WBA, virtually everyone including the most optimistic fans didn't expect that we...

    Man United (H) | Pre-Match Thread

    Momentum is very important in football. Jesus has scored 3 goals in his last 2 starts and Mahrez has contributed 2 goals and several assists since Everton. At least one of them will start, maybe both. Rodri, Gundogan and Bernardo will start. Bernardo has started in 14 of the last 15 league wins...

    100 days since we were 13th in the league.

    Think we may use tactics similar to that at Anfield: wear them down patiently and then go for the jugular in the 2nd half. It will be their 3rd game in 7 days and they are not likely to have much in the tank in the last 20 minutes. We made 7 changes against West Ham and 6 changes vs Wolves, so...

    Our bad start to the season makes what's hapening now feel even better. Back then, after we lost from Spurs, or after our draw with WBA, they were writing us off and were thinking that the wheels were finally coming off, that Pep was tired or found out, that we were going to rebuild for years...

    Man United (H) | Pre-Match Thread

    After Jesus scored 2 goals and Mahrez was brilliant, it will be really tough for Pep to select the first XI. Imo, the plan was Foden to replace Mahrez/Jesus, Gundogan to replace Kevin and Stones to replace Laporte. Gundy and Stones will play but not sure about Foden now. Bernardo is key in...
