It'd be just like this Man Utd team to pull off a wonder result here and then go to Carrow Road and get thoroughly twatted.
This is going to be absolutely brutal.
We’re going to need some kind of act of God here.
We'll win 1-0.
Then fail to beat both Norwich and Bournemouth.
I'm going to this, should be fun.
We are 8 games in, and the scousers are 15(fifteen!!!) points ahead of us. Crazy.
I am hoping that Pogba, Martial, and AWB will be fit for this and we might luck out a good result, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
We do seem to be game raisers these days so fingers crossed, but then we've not been in as bad a patch as this so Christ knows what's going to happen.
Wonder if Young will be able to pull off such a great performance against Salah again. Easily his best ever performance at LB.
Thing is Young is quite good when defending, he has a bit of experience to know how to handle some attackers. But when he gets the ball by god is he bad. He may as well pass it square back to Salah when he wins it.
yeah, and he's got worse since then.
He was quality that day though.
Despite the fact our manager is from the Norwegian league and is extremely incompetent and out of depth, we will win this if we have all our injured players back.
Apparently Pogba has a fractured toe.
He could try kicking him. Hard. Like, really hard. Like, a lot.
This should be interesting. I think we will score against them. But we will also concede. I’m guessing 4- 2 to them.
It’s genuinely fascinating the people at the head of the match day score leaderboard. Fair play to ya, you must live interesting lives!
It is strange to say but I am not overly worried about this fixture.
We have developed this weird habit of being equal or worse than mid table teams and but also looking pretty equal with good teams in a one off game. We have turned into a mid table game raising team.
1-0 to them or maybe 1-1.
We'll lose this, and it'll be a heavy defeat in terms of score or display.
They'll be up for it, and we'll be absolutely trashed by these f*******
Then Ole will fail to beat Norwich or B'mouth, pressure will be too much for him
My team for the last real game for Ole, Phelan and co
Manchester United 0-3 Liverpool
I see us losing 0-2 or 0-3, unfortunately. We definitely won't score, unless it's an own goal or a penalty. And contrary to popular belief, I think Liverpool won't go out of 2nd gear and might even hit us on the counter.
Who have we raised our game against? We actually had our fill lineup v Chelsea, so I wouldn't call that a game raiser.
Liverpool in the past. Not sure what the lineup has to do with it?
You said "these days", so I thought you actually meant recently!
These days as in the past few years I mean. That counts as 'these days'!
I’m going against the grain here and being all hipster but I think Liverpool will beat us.
I hope Mason Greenwood is fit, Id like to see him up front with Martial in for Rashford.
Haha, fair does pal.
Let's hope we do up our game, as if it's the same level as last week, we'll be annihilated!
Actually, they know how to do one thing.
Like we've been in most of our games, since the PSG away match, last season.
Last April, I wrote off this season and unless unless we get a big name manager who makes demands of the board, I fear that I am going to be writing off next season, too.
Ole simply does not have the stature to demand the signings which will allow us to finish top 4 (or perhaps even top 6). If he doesn't get fired soon, I will begin to think that maybe our target is top 10.
You think we can score 2 goals in 1 game?
I'd surprised if we managed to get more than 2 shots on goal against Liverpool.
He will play Mata because he " may create" something for someone. Unfortunately I don't know who that someone is. And neither do the "pundits".
If they beat us Gary Neville is going to have a good bashing from the Pool contingent.
Actually we are so bad even Graeme Souness looks like he is feeling sorry for United. That takes a lot of doing.
I think it’ll be a tight and slightly dull affair with both teams afraid to lose. A narrow 1-0 win for either side or a draw is my prediction.
I'd take that.
Wish the club would make up their mind. Against Southampton he had a sprained ankle then against Rochdale he had a knock on his ankle now he has a sprained toe. Wonder where he got that from?
Pogba will be ready it seems.
Doesn't look anywhere near ready in that video, to be honest. Won't make a difference if he plays anyway and I'd rather he isn't risked again, because these injuries just make his form even worse.
I am predicting a mostly comfortable 2-1 for us where we get an early brace and concede late in the game and just manage to hold on for the win.
I had a dream we lost 7-0. Let's hope I'm not psychic.
He won't be ready and if he did somehow play there is no way he'd even be 70% fit. Question is, is an 70% Pogba better than 100% Fred or Matic?
Either way I'm expecting a loss, anything else is a bonus.
De gea - Romero (can we play two goalies? no? shit)
AWB Young Lindelof Maguire Rojo Shaw
I predicted a 2-0 win for us lads.
Since I was correct in predicting a 1-0 loss against Newcastle, fingers crossed I am correct this time too.
Sigh. A 70% Pogba would be better than the combined 200% of Fred and Matic.
