That works out to 14 goals apiece which on paper is a very modest ask for each of them.If Martial, Rashford, Bruno, Greenwood, and Cavani score 70 goals between them...sure, there's a chance.
Last time this season our rivals dropped point, we won. So maybe it's not inevitable and it's happening?We manage to get some decent form in the league. Our rivals drop points. We play the last fixture in this round of games. Against the worst team in the league, who have been diabolical all season. Three points could see us surge up the table.
We all know what’s going to happen. That’s what this team does, under Ole. We’re not going to win. It’s inevitable.
We'll go down in the first half and come back with 2 in the second and we'll bloody like it.After those results we've seen yesterday, one thing I'd bet on is we'll be starting full strength team. Ole will want to put 2 past them in first half and just stroll in the second half.
I feel the same way. We have never been good when the time comes for us to react and get a good result. Ferguson teams loved such challenges and would make no errors and create so many chances in such games but post Fergie era, we've hardly take advantage of such situations except of course the end of last season. We did well there. I really wish we win and prove we're better then Lampard's Chelsea in spite of their big spending spree in the summer. It will truly be mud in their faces if we manage to do that. West Brom will fight to keep us at bay and take every chance to score first. If they manage to score first, they'll probably borrow Jose's bus and park it in front of goal. We need to be sharp and go for it from the get go. If we get the first goal, then they'll drop their shoulders and we can go on win comfortably. Let's see what Ole does. He should probably bench Bruno for this and bring him on in the second half or play him only for the first 45. Either ways he needs a rest but Pogba and VDB must play a part in this game along with Martial and Greenwood. Rashford can be rested as well and James can be given a go, he must be raring to go and this is the best opportunity for him. If you ask me though, I'd throw Facundo Pellestri in in the second half and see how he does. We need to be positive and confident because the whole world would be supporting the underdogs.Chelsea losing and City getting only one point vs. West Brom can't mean anything else than us losing to Sheffield United and it's not a jinx.
They are guaranteed to play out of their minds against us. We better be up for it and match their effort from the start if we want to have a chance at not fecking this up.Sheffield are so ridiculously bad I don't think they'll even give us a chance to bottle this.
Ok erase my predictions. Longshanks got it spot on.Yes a few disturbing things about this game
Sheff U haven't won yet
We are on a club record run of away victories
It's now clear that a fair few of our rivals have/will be dropping points
It's got embarrassing defeat written all over it.
I predict we will start well, miss some good chances early on, the concede from a set piece, fall apart for the rest of the half and go in at half time 2-0 down.
Second half we will see lots of passing about between our defenders and lots of over hit long balls from maguire and co and no penetration until we get a soft penalty in the 72nd minute that Bruno scores then play like a team possesed for 10 minutes but miss a host of chances, then spend the last ten minutes playing hoof ball with a random selection of 2 attackers 3 midfielders and 5 defenders on and look utterly hopeless.
Cue a complete meltdown of the caf with arguments about XG/no coaching/tactics P.E teacher, the creditenials of the Norwegian league and an apparently title winning squad and lots of mentions of Poch.
I really hope.this doesn't happen of course, but you can see it coming cant you?
Absolutely, 700 years after my death it still hurts, bloody William Wallace.Ok erase my predictions. Longshanks got it spot on.
Also, are you still pissed about that babe whispering to you about how she was knocked up by Braveheart and how your line would end with your death? That had to hurt.
Bit weird, isn't it? None of the big six have won a game since that 0-0. Now even Leicester and Southampton have dropped points too. Liverpool v Spurs to be a draw too?With each result my prediction becomes more and more certain. Just need a Liverpool v Spurs draw for 100% confirmation.
It’s like the footballing gods are conspiring to make a mug of Ole. Sheffield United have one point, so far this season. And a goal difference of -16!Bit weird, isn't it? None of the big six have won a game since that 0-0. Now even Leicester and Southampton have dropped points too. Liverpool v Spurs to be a draw too?
