Well, we played well second half when Rashford came on (...please take note Maureen FFS)...I suppose we lost it in the first half, disappointing

I was in and out, saw their goals (lucky 2nd), missed ours.
What was with the Bravo tackle on Rooney?

It was a really poor touch, which meant he has to go into a tackle with Rooney - prob 50/50, but really didn't look good.

Flying over to Spain whilst this was on. No Rashford on, no win, no surprise. Pogba over paid, over rated... the last based on what I have seen & reviews of this game.

I take back what I said in here earlier this week. Rashford should be playing from the start - he was the only one of your players that seemed to want to attack. Ibrahomovic took his goal well and looked dangerous several times, but he didn't exactly work hard to get his chances, he just took what came to him.

Anyway, never mind about Rashford, when is Jose going to pick Pogba ..... wait, what, he was playing today? Sorry didn't notice him.

I though Herrera and Fellaini played well in midfield today, especially in the first period of the 2nd half.

I'm sure that Miki will be a good signing and do well for you, but Jose cocked it up big time picking him today. Wasn't he supposed to be injured this week? He looked well of the pace today.

Still it was a good game and the result wasn't certain until the end, even though it should have been wrapped up by half time.

Are you really surprised at Pogba? He's got his money, do you get paid more for playing well?

City played well and edged it, far superior in the first half. But we're better than last year and we'll be up there come the end.

I especially liked the bit where he ran into the box and fell on his arse without putting a proper cross in. We needed more of that in the first half.

I'd guess they'd be a drop in the ocean compared to his overall salary, if you were his agent would you allow much of his pay on how well he is doing?

No player is perfect, but he was bar far your best player yesterday.
Without him, the only chances created were misplaced passes from Stones and Bravo playing chicken.

Before yesterday, Stones hadn't put a foot wrong, but there were so many poor passes, he might as well have been wearing red. I had to laugh when Shearer said he was excellent!

I'm not slagging Rashford, he's awesome.

Picking Miki was a mistake, he was obviously carrying an injury. Herrera should have started.

Bet Hart enjoyed the game.

Yeah that was a bad call from Mourihno. He admitted to making mistakes to be fair, but I noticed that he's already started sagging off the players as soon as things have gone wrong. Off the field, he may be the most interesting coach to watch this season.

5 Live said there was nothing wrong with it; unsurprisingly Talk****e and Maureen said it was a blatant penalty and Bravo should have been sent off

Was other Waddle on 5 Live? I've always found him to be quite anti-United.

I think the penalty shout was sour grapes,you win some and you lose some,there will be times when it goes for you and against you so best to move on and put it behind and onto the next game.
Back again, don't you ever give up??????

I've said anythingnwas wrong with the tackle as it was a 50/50. But pretty poor from Bravo to get into that situation, and then needed an ugly tackle with Rooney. He only just got away with it. All teams will pressure him from now on.
