Mejbri, McCann and Hoogewerf very good. Mejbri just oozes class on the ball.

Think we started brightly but the second half of the 1st was pretty poor, Lincoln made it hard by being really physical. 2nd half was much better and after the 2-0 goal we just cruised.
Thanks. Even though I only caught the last half hour, I echo yours and @Adnan 's opinions that Mejbri and McCann were the two that stood out last night.

Shoretire 6
Forson 7
Neville 6

Once the first goal went in it was over as a contest but they'll have to up the tempo in the next round as Norwich will be a useful side, hopefully Devine and Elanga will be available to come in for Svidersky and Sotona/Wellens.

Noticed that when Forson came on the MUTV caption announcing his 'substitution on' was only allowed to give his surname because of the FA/PL's child protection laws as he's under 16, yet the second, or third time he touched the ball Dave Stowell called him Omari Forson :nono: Fine on your desk this morning Mr Stowell.

Hopefully McCann will kick on from here, was strolling around too much on his new position this season and was overtaken by Helm in the pecking order.

United was, like the last 10 games, very poor. Still managed to win due to our opponents being Lincoln. No way we will beat Norwich with this team. Maybe if Elanga, Devine and a couple of others are back.

Generally agree with who you rated as better - but think your score overall is too high. We were average against a poor side

Having watched it a 2nd and 3rd time(yes I am that sad), I probably did give them all 1/10 more than they deserved but at the time I was just glad they'd won after so many early exits recently, that and being still under the influence ;)
