You make me wish brunty was a united fan instead of you. You'd be happy whinging in the Liverpool forums.

I want us to be playing with the flair and speed of the Fergie glory days, but Jose isn't like that and the game has arguably moved on.

For now I will take a year on year improvement, regardless of what is happening on the pitch, and I believe we're better than last season, so it's going in the right direction.
I have to save this post for when I want a good laugh.

Hell will freeze over first

But Micon does have a point ... for the most expensively assembled squad in Premier League history, you should be a lot closer to City than you are.

Second most expensive, no?

That doesn't excuse things, but City are the most expensive squad in world football, apparently.

Who's idea was the grey kit?

...fair to say we are very much second best here...I think it's time we all got used to mediocrity!

It’s Pogba who creates chances. At least he tries to be creative, something the rest of our midfield can’t do. That’s why he’s so important.

As a Bristol Rovers supporting Man Utd fan - I couldn’t bear to lose this one!

Well you better keep your fingers crossed then 'cos this could go either way...City look tired but we always seem to have that suicidal tendency!

The only positive I can take is that it wasn’t Matt Taylor who scored!

Embarrassing, Embarrassing, Embarrassing. We so missed pogba tonight. We are playing worse, YES F ing WORSE, than under moyes & van hell. That was Embarrassing. We played like a second division team, we looked like a second division team & ALL MY predictions, all my posts have proven to be correct, YET AGAIN.
I hate to say it, but we are a million miles away from city, chelsea etc.

They were better all over the pitch than us tonight. Martial is in terrible form. We're so sluggish right across the team. This result has been coming, really.

Fair play to them, the best team won.

Oh dear, some on here will not regard this as a disaster but, realistically, it was our best chance of silverware. Bristol City deserved it, no complaints from me...but...Mourinho has to go before we can get back to where we should be. His tactics and ability to inspire this team when needed is woeful, no wonder the Chelsea team wanted shot of him! He has zero charisma, is a totally miserable git and I'll be glad to see the back of him!

I see the Leicester game is live on Saturday, I won't be watching it...the ********* ain't spoiling my Christmas!!

I can a number of times. The difference back then, every result wasn’t analysed to death.

Exactly.

When we won this competition last year everyone was looking down their noses at it, now we're out it's the end of the world.
