Bugger. 2nd time he's injured himself in warm up. Hopefully not serious?

Arse. Rooney needs to perform today then.

To be honest with you I thought he had his worst game against Leicester last week since he became a regular starter , so it makes a bit of sense , but hindsight is a wonderful thing

What has Darmian done? Doesn't look good!

It's more of the same again, then. We are playing quite well but we don't look like scoring.

You wouldn't think either team were desperate to win.

I don't think we are playing well. Missing Martial, Rashford and Blind. No spark. Memphis has been awful. I'd bring on Adnan, who may offer some creativity - but he's been pants all year. Serious lack of options.

I keep thinking under a better manager some of our average players will shine, but I also wonder if perhaps both manager & players are useless.

I'd give Januzaj a run. I'm not sure what more we need to see from Memphis. He's a nearly man - clearly got some ability but unable to put it on the pitch. He also gives up too easily if things don't come off first time for him.

I think we're comfortable, but I'm not sure how we're going to win it. Rooney is totally stuck up there without anyone to play off and we're so slow getting forwards.

I think a lot is the manager. We won the league with the likes of Young, O'Shea, Anderson, Cleverly etc through the years. We don't have enough players who have a spark/ can make a difference on their own.

Norwich are playing like they deserve to go down. And we're not able to beat them. No-one wants to have a go and take someone on.

That we're still in with a chance of 4th is pretty incredible really but I can see West Ham giving us trouble in the week so we might not even end up 5th!

Yes. Awful performance though. How we are even in contention for CL is a joke. Let's hope Arsenal give us a hand.

That win gave us a bit of hope until we couldn't score against villa

And with the mackems beating Chelsea means we're relegated not if but when sunderland beat Everton on Wednesday.

Well well well. How is it that LVG can win his last 3 games and finish in the top 4 and win the cup..? West Ham is going to be a very tough match, and traditionally our bogey team, so extremely difficult to do. But amazingly in our own hands.
