Feels a bit more important than it has done in recent years. Disappointed that Matic and Martial are not near being ready, but think we've got enough to give them a hard time today.

2-1 United.

Massively important match...we win this and we might still catch Spurs for 3rd...and of course, we may just prevent the scouters from getting back up on our perch!

24 mins gone and 2 United subs already...and a less then 100% Rashford!

...going to be a long afternoon and something really special if we win this.

Change of plan. 0-0 will be an incredible result.

Doesn't help that we're punished for every 50-50 ball by the ref.

This is like an early release of Champ Manager that has an injury bug that needs patching.

General consensus from the pundits is that 'United are there for the taking'! I hope Rashford can make the full 90+ otherwise we're going to get battered... ...0-0 will be a great result for us, but there's always the chance...

Revert to a bit of Jose for 2nd half and play the old 8-1-1 formation if we want to get anything out of this. It's a shame because it was shaping up to be a decent game.

Liverpool should be winning this if they really want to win the league.

Well, all things considered, we did pretty great. Maybe the 2 points we stopped them getting will cost them the title?

...dropped to 5th though

Or maybe the 1 point we got will win us the title

And you are arguably only 5th cos you've played a game more than Chelsea.

Adam,. straight in here to shout at us because his team are misfiring.

I thought we did ok. Compared to the last performance of Jose's bunch, we'd have taken 0-0 with a full strength team. They had 1 shot on target all game so this is not all about free-flowing attacking, we're getting better as a team.

Not happy, but easily the happiest bunch of fans today.

(
we won't be winning the title but it'll be points chucked away against the likes of Leicester & West Ham that'll cost us just as more as today. Before the game i'd have bitten your hand off for a point but fair play,you defended well and looked the more likely to score when you got out of your half. It won't be a matter of you rolling over for City though, they'll beat you comfortably anyway

You were way better than the in the reverse fixture. And most of the media pundits had you winning before kick off. United have been playing well since Ole took over and we have been poor for the past month - there is no way 'you' would have taken 0-0, at home, if you had been full strength.

We underperformed but it was more important, IMHO, we didn't lose.

Correct. I thought we'd do you 2-1 at kick off, but then we lost nearly all of our attacking machine. And went on to have more shots on target than you did.

I can see why you're upset Adam.



It's slipping.

Why am I upset ? We got 1 more point than I was expecting us to get

Fair enough. We were there for the taking, though.

Sanchez is finished, isn't he? He looks all at sea in this match, falling over at every opportunity.
