First the ref books Phil Jones for next to nothing, then David Meyler make a definite yellow card foul & get NOTHING. Then to top it all the most non penalty ever is awarded to them.

Rojo did have hold of his shirt though and, although he did pretty much blatantly throw himself to the ground, it did give the ref a reason. Wrong decision though methinks...but we've only got ourselves to blame...we are AWFUL!!!

We're so sloppy and workmanlike tonight, so frustrating. Hull are having a go, which surely we must have expected, but it seems like we've turned up here to coast into the final.

The officials, as ever, are up to the 'FA Standard'. We don't ask for perfection, but consistency would be nice.

If we're going to have a bad game, I'd rather it was in the Cup. We did just enough over two legs, bu that was really really poor.

It's not just about the result though, it's about how we are playing. But yes, a major final is great.

We definitely need better strikers or midfielders who can score goals. We miss too many good chances. We have the basis of a good side, but all parts need strengthening.

Excited to get to the final and hope we go on and win it because the difference between this seasons United and last seasons United is like night which is why last night was frustrating, it was like watching last years all possession no penetration teams.

So last night I was a little grumpy. But I "woke up this morning feeling fine..."

Didn't watch the semi, but not going to read anything into a match we didn't need to win. Great news on getting to the final, two very winnable matches coming up.

Tepid stuff again, doing just enough. Martial looks shot of any confidence, he needs a break, I hope it comes this half.
