Looked great. Technically excellent.

Still not sure why the WBA pen was overturned, no difference to the Fabinho one against Sheffield and that was out of the box too!

It almost felt comforting watching the state United are in after the City game. Almost.

He's nothing more than his physique. Blessed in that department but nothing more. When his pace goes he'll be a championship player. He's been good for us to be fair but easily the worst technician at the club and his positioning is horrendous.
Absolutely. He can still recover well (due to his pace) but it’s error after error.

You oppos must be beside yourselves with fear after watching United tear poor WBA apart.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

The prospect of being bored to death is really quite scary.

Very feisty in midfield, got blatantly fouled for a penalty that was chalked off for no reason whatsoever.

The penalty was overturned because the contact was minimal, certainly not enough to make a player go down. Exactly why the late penalty for Villa was overturned against Brighton, contact was there but not enough for Trezeguet to crumble as he did.

But yeah Gallagher was impressive last night. Saw him against Spurs as well and looked good there too.

He missed the ball and kicked the guys shin. It's a blatant foul.





Guess which one they gave?

And on the 2nd one, Maguire (or another United player) was mandhandled first in their penalty box during corner also. Nothing was given. But you might not remember that, do you?

Pool will smash Leicester, huh? Rodgers' such a bottler, I have zero expectations.

I hope Leeds beat Arsenal and I feel wrong for saying that. I think for some bizarre reason, I hate Arsenal more than any other team.

Depends on when you grew to watching United. For me it was from the late 90s, so I hated Arsenal more than any other English club (remember celebrating when Mellor scored that late winner v them in 2004).

That hatred has gone down now though given how bad they've become and the rise of Liverpool and City. I don't think I'll hate any club more than City right now.

Terrible for Fulham!

Why is this game on BBC though? Is it one of those PPV games that got binned? I thought this was Sky Sports

Pickford is England's no. 1 ladies and gentlemen

Correction - southgate's no. 1 is more apt

Why do Fulham insist on playing out the back when they are so bad at it?

You guys should be the last one talking about being bored. Managed by Jose and talking about other team's being boring. What next City and chelsea fans complaining about FFP.
