    Not exciting, but it didn't have to be. Just take care of business in the second leg and we are on to Wembley.

    Typical performance of this season : we battered the opposition, created countless chances but our finishing is not as good as the actual performance.

    Should have been 4-0. As it is, 2 should be enough, if we score in 2nd leg, we basically guaranteed of another final!

    Jose did very well on team selection and rotation. Valencia Herrera, Pogba and Mhkitariyan were busy, though mhki finishing was wasteful.
    Rashford and Rooney were in effective but that's OK.

    Going into crucial game with Liverpool in very good shape!!!

    So it is. I gave my opinion - I don't have to elaborate on something most are agreeing with.

    Job well on its way to being done. Should have been out of sight after 20 minutes then got sucked in to a bit of an arm wrestle for the rest of the half. Poor second half from us but we bagged two goals.

    All in all good to get through the game with a good win and minimum injuries/fatigue.

    Players never really had to work hard, so that's a bonus for Liverpool anyway.

    First impessions Herrera motm. Rashford still not good enough to lead the line on his own. In fact no one seemed to be on top form tonight. Think we needed a 2-0 at least. That should put the tie to bed. Its nice to keep winning when we dont play as well as we have been. Does Ibra gel the team better? I think so.

    Hull revealing themselves as the main cause of the NHS' winter struggles there. That poor lad will be in A&E until 6am. Don't know if anyone else saw Fellaini smile and look up at the sky after he scored - Moyes was there, smiling down upon him. Has anyone still got that 'chosen one' banner? Could be worth hanging it back up at OT

    Never really got going but good result, glad Fellaini scored as at 2-0 we can afford to play a much changed side in the next leg, especially since it comes just before we play City in the league

    Hull were set up defensively and we did well to break them down. Should be easier away as i expect them to attack us with a 2-0 deficit and that should play right into our hands.

    Good:
    We got the win, and a halfway decent score to take into the second leg.
    Mata was decent
    Clean sheet. Hull offered nothing going forward
    9 wins in a row! For the first time since 2009! :devil:

    Bad:
    Again we're back to being poor without Carrick on the pitch
    Boring, mediocre performance
    Mkhi's finishing
    Rashford, Rooney and Martial's performances

    Comfortable win, could have been more especially in the first half if we'd had our shooting boots on.
    Seemed a bit in 3rd gear with an eye on the next match. Defence had little to do but Valencia and Darmian did fine.
    Mata and Pogba best of the bunch

    I'd take boring win against Hull in the cup semifinal with Liverpool on the weekend any day of the week.
    Can't believe some people aren't happy about this

    Do you have statistics or hard evidence to back up the claim that most are in this agreement?

    In our last 15, we've won 12 and drawn 3, scoring 36 and conceding a mere 8. And with 7 clean sheets.

    That Pogba free kick was literally identical to one he did earlier in the season. The ball even bounced off in the same direction iirc

    Oh how times have changed. We've gone from 'boring performance' to 'boring win'. We're just bored of winning aren't we?
