    You can add Fred too but there is more options to take Rashford off
    Fred terrible. But like every other game until we have a coaches team we need to rely on attacking individual moments to try win and rashford is so poor lately

    Maguire is absolutely shite. That could have been given as a pen.
    Same issue as Rashford. No football intelligence. When we are playing in a Gegenpress setup where you only have a second to decide the correct move, they will both be a huge liability.

    Why are we playing Sancho on the left and Rashford on the right ?
    Good point, only we’d try and buy a right winger for 2 years and play in on the left. Absolutely ridiculous

    Atkinson was looking at DeGea on the ground and facing his goal when the ball was cleared out of the penalty area. He should have blown the whistle right then. It doesn't matter if DeGea was fouled, clipped by a teammate, or did it himself. Once that passage of play is done, ball 20 feet in the air, he should have whistled to a stop. Fred trod on DeGea's achilles tendon, which burns, and he immediately went down.

    Both "Robbies" on the USA broadcast, as well as Graeme LeSaux and Arlo White, are blatantly anti-United. Clowns.

    Well done for the Bruno goal.

    Excellent tackle by McTominay. Remember when Arsenal used to shit their pants when the physicality got too much? Bringing the thunder back, well done, son.

    This Arsenal team is nothing. We need to get more adventurous in the final third, with all that possession.
    Yup, ref knows 100% keeper is on the ground and no way he could've seen Fred's foul. The piece of shit did it on purpose. We have lost these kind of advantages even at our home ground which is sad. Imagine if this was klopp at An field, ref blows the whistle 100%

    It was a bit of a weird goal. But in no way was it "the most extraordinary goal we've seen in Premier League history".

    Move on, ffs. Or at least give equal billing to the Bruno goal.

    FFS the Arsenal was properly allowed. Had De Gea suffered a suspected head injury from his own player then play has to stop. Had an Arsenal player stamped De Gea then the goal is properly disallowed. End of.
    I agree.
    They saw MCFC and LFC go easy on us in their respective games (in the 2nd half), so some fans feel that all teams should be going easy on us.

    Rashford's complete and utter disinterest is even more amazing - when you remember that the new manager, renowned for getting his players to work hard and press, is sat in the stand watching.
    Remember him under Jose and LVG? He was running and pressing all day.

    Awfully unsportsmanlike from arsenal. Even they way they celebrated it. Pretty disappointed to see.

    Hopefully United win and ram it down their throats.

    Once a keeper is down injured the ref should be stopping the game, regardless of how the injury occurred, you can't allow a game to go on with the keeper immobilised. If he thinks the keeper's simulating then he can book him but there's absolutely no reason to allow the play to progress to the point where a goal is scored and now he can't do anything about it because it was his teammate so a foul can't be called, inept from the ref.
    That's a load of nonsense. There would be nothing to stop one of our defenders standing on the 'keepers foot whenever the opposition are in a dangerous position. It makes no sense. There was nothing wrong with De Gea, he could've easily got back up and saved that shot, but he chose to play for a freekick and it backfired.

    The fact we're playing this same 4-2-4 with the same players makes me start to wonder if Ole was responsible for it in the first place
    Can't you see the difference in play? I actually enjoyed watching us in that first half.

    We should be 1-0 .
    Instead because of that asshole De Gea we are even.
    Play to the whistle FFS
    I like De Gea but that goal was all on him. People here are blaming Fred but looking at the replay what did he really do to cause De Gea to stay down so long? It appears to me De Gea thought he was touched by an opposition player and stayed down. Idiotic

    Can someone tell me why we play both of our wingers on their weaker side? Some decisions at this club are just mindboggling.

    He didn't know and neither did our players. De Gea actually went down once everyone had turned their backs to the goal. I guess he thought the danger was clear.

    Watch any challenge on the Achilles. Everybody goes down the same way, like a sack of shit.
    even if he gets up he isn’t diving to save it
    First up, if it actually tears his achilles like that, he's off, not carrying on two minutes later.
    Second up, yes, you drop, but you don't curl up into a tight ball. It's not a natural reaction to even an achilles injury to curl up tightly.
    Thirdly, I don't need to watch. My leg has gone through extreme trauma, not just the achilles but the ankle itself being torn up, with bones and muscles being torn right out of my body. I still sat on my seat afterwards on the way to hospital.

    My Thoughts:
    • De Gea is a pussy as usual
    • Fred's awful regardless of the assist
    • Nice play by Sancho for the goal.
    • McTominay Anonymous as usual. Awful trait for a Midfielder.
    • Rashford Anonymous too.
    • Should be playing Amad or Greenwood over him.
    • May as well play VDB instead of either Fred or McTominay. He can't be worse.
    Team is an absolute mess
    I would add Ronaldo trying to score from ridiculous positions instead of looking round.

    Goalkeepers have a pretty important job to do mate. And going down and trusting the ref to be sympathetic is cowardly.

    He is soft, it’s been a pattern for years. It’s some of the most pathetic play I’ve seen on a pitch. To see him up standing seconds later, disgusting.
    He went down because he was in pain.
    He wasn't just standing up a few seconds later, he was getting checked out by the physio. You're just making things up now. :lol:

    Why is Rashford on the right and sancho on the left? Didn't we it sancho because he can play on the right? Sancho's best games have come on the right recently.

    Rashford has always been terrible on the right. Why can't our coaches make a basic logical decision?

    All the people who went mad after Ronaldo was left out of the team against Chelsea should be made to watch every minute of his performances against decent teams in the pl this season

    I defended Maguire many times these last few years but this season he's been horrible and again tonight, so lucky penalty wasn't given.

    Hilarious watching Keys and Gray on bein sports at half time. They’ve spent 10 minutes remonstrating that arsenal should have had a penalty for a maguire pull down yet barely touched on the other incidents, comical.
