    Rashford has this uncanny ability to look like a completely different player each game. Are we sure he doesn't have a twin brother?

    Things like having a group of players who've hardly played together ever? I wonder where all these great managers are who can instantly gel a group of 11 players into a team who know each others strengths....

    Using his right foot when it should be easier to use his left. Too many one footed players.

    Really? Maybe you’ll have a good answer if you, ten years down the line, get the question; Where were you when Chong made his debut? ;)

    Suppose some squad players got minutes today and we’ve progressed. Job done.

    Brutal performance though.

    i didn't misconstrue anything, merely asked what you were expecting to see. you're adding connotations to my post. I did add the qualifiers of the current match he's playing in, but that was only to contextualise things
  23. 90+2 min

    Jan 5, 2019

    Perreira with a good effort from the edge of the box and Jaakkola makes a good save to push it wide. Our first corner of the game!

    Best thing Andreas has done, he's been wasteful otherwise. Good shot good save.

    He should’ve just smashed it. Why take it round the keeper?

    Full-time

    Not a convincing display but we're through to the 4th Round of the FA Cup. Reading had more possession and more shots on goal today and with more quality would surely have made this a much closer contest.

    First-half goals from Mata and Lukaku were the difference as we did just about enough today. It was a very changed line-up missing many of our top performers so I'm sure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have been glad to assess many of the squad players over 90 minutes.

    There is now a much needed break before the big game at Spurs. The team are off to Dubai this week for some sunshine.

    It was definitely a fan, I was being sarcastic in the mentioning of the tactics being shouted. It's just vulgarities from the crowd. Other notable shouts have been 'Total wank!', 'Christ sake man!' and 'Piss off, dickhead!'

    How exactly would it be easier to use his left?? He took his eye off the ball and misplaced his foot a little bit. Shit happens.
