    Bloody Everton just put 4 goals past us, and to think i'm getting shot down for being the only one worried that today we may have completely blown it? Everton!

    It was a shambles out there today, not a team who look like champions.

    At Wigan, our performance was utterly horrible, absolutely unacceptable. Here we outplayed a decent Everton side in the second half, showed some brilliant football but paid the price for slack defending and complacency (from Fergie, too).

    I can't feel too bad when United play brilliant attacking football. I wasn't too down when we got knocked out by Madrid in 2003 - those were great games, fantastic spectacles. Losing to Bayern in 2001 was much worse, for example.

    Rafael worries me. everyone says how good he is going forward. He is a full back and he should be a defender first, if he can get forward that is a bonus not the other way round.
    Evra is the same, he is so intent on going forward he forgets his defensive duties. Evra never gets a rest because the Boss obviously doesn't trust Fabio to come in, that is why he is sending him out on loan. This need addressing. Hopefully Vida will be back fully fit next season. Feel so sorry for the forwards who busted a gut.

    The attitudes people have in this thread, they may as well be. I certainly don't want to think of them as people I'd like to associate with, a lack of belief sickens me to the core.

    I think it's the manner of the draw. If Everton were leading, and it was us who scored the equaliser to salvage a point, we'd be delighted.

    But 10 minutes remaining.......10 fecking minutes. I hope that's our last kick up the arse. Even if City win today, we're three points ahead. Go to their ground, and win to end this fecking race once & for all.

    Fergie will be looking for a "reaction" I bet.

    Why ? They'll have to win so the fight they'll put will be even more intense and they have that Tevez cnut back.Always fancy him to score against us.

    Why? We can still afford to lose one game and still win it, whereas they cannot!

    Bah...Ferguson is equally much to blame. He could see our left side being wide open - he still kept Nani on.

    If we had made a substitution at 4-2 - taken Nani off and put on Jones or Smalling - we would have won.

    Oh please. United are never "there for the taking". We make it hard on ourselves but when the chips are down in the big games, we know how to deal with it. Have some fecking faith.

    It feels like we've thrown it away, but there's still games to be played and it is still in our hands.

    We aren't jumping ship and not supporting the club anymore. We are however highlighting how standards have dropped. If we were wolves that last ten minutes would have been laughable. We've had opportunities to wrap this title up and we haven't got the bollocks.

    We certainly have the advantage, but if City win all their remaining games they win the title. So from their perspective, it's in their hands. Their fate; is in their hands.

    Technically it's not because if we lose our remaining two and City win, they will win on goal difference. We need a win at the Etihad and a point.

    The way I see it is that at this part of the season (last quarter of league matches), performance and quality of football take a back seat for me.Mathematically it's wrong to say it but this draw is worse than the Wigan defeat.

    Yes people do go OTT, but I think you're also going OTT at the moment.

    Just because people get angry, does that mean we're jumping ship? Give fecking over.

    6 points ahead should have been 8. Then it would completely be in our hands.

    Experience, that's why. These must-win games are United's forte and we've a lot more experience than the mercenaries at City. I don't give a feck about Tevez. We'll handle him.

    I hope the thread will stay to make them look really stupid! come on Wolves. Being an United fan is not easy. And I hate the added need to fight against glory hunters who assume we must win every fecking game. And if not, they start to flip and talk nonsense.

    Performance and quality of football always seems to take a back seat with United these days. When they don't, I'm a bit happier, even if we don't win.

    Had we got a single stupid little point at Wigan, we could afford to lose at City...

    For being angry and dissappointed with us dropping 2 points from the position we were in? Alright, lets not turn this into rawk now.

    Giving away 2 goals in the last ten minutes has sickened me to the core. Football. Bloody hell.

    Maybe we are all in collective shock, and are debating completely irrelevant and pointless things to avoid accepting or understanding what just happened?

    Would you not classify today as a big game?
