Not to mention a slick goal ruled out for offside.Thought we played very well and controlled the game from the third minute on. Match stats don't always tell the whole story but tonight they did: 64% possesion, 28 shots to seven (14 on target), seven corners, four goals and all that having missed a penalty. Great performance from the lads - Rashford and Bruno were outstanding.
Finding a win negative. LovelyThis is why we’re going nowhere under this management. One decent performance against fecking Newcastle and everyone’s creaming themselves. Ole will get a few good results when his job is on the line then we’ll turn to shite soon enough, rinse and repeat.
People aren't excited about the performance because it was only decent. A lot of people seem to only think in terms of results, but the game was not great. It was a game that had some sparks, but for long periods it was actually pretty dull.Its the modern redcafe. They only post when we lose
His other foot was on the line, wasn't it? I thought both feet had to be off the line. But, not entirely sure.Has anyone asked why the Fernandes penalty wasn't retaken? Goalkeeper was half a foot off his line!!!! Knew there'd be no consisteny in that bullshit rule.
Yeah you can see the talent that James has. He just needs to put it together to be worthy of keeping his place in the squad.My thoughts as well. Really impressed by McT. But I saw flashes of good football from Shaw, AWB and James.
Both fullbacks were getting forward on regular occasions and AWB got rewarded with a goal. With regards James - well it wasn't his best game, but I still saw quite the improvement. Instead of hugging the sideline and pushing the opposing fullback towards his goal, James was droping deep to pick the ball and drifting into the free spaces that Bruno was vacating. His shots were hurried and his dribling was lacking confidence, but his overall performance was above average.
I’ve not seen any keeper picked up like DDG was, and it was mm, but he was off the line. The Newcastle keeper clearly had part of his left foot behind the line.True but they pulled de Gea back for all of half an inch of movement. It seems arbitrary as with most things in football these days I spose
Eh? Martial has played 2 games this season and was sent off early in 3rd. In those 3 everyone including Rashford was crap.Rashford deserves a run up front, Martial has had his chance.
Mata and Bruno were great.
Van der Beek should start.
