My theory is he was back in Holland, left with 28 goals and player of the season and tried to 'turn it on' failing spectacularly.

Still I think it will be a long time until we see them in the shirt again...when's the league cup?

If and when Depay leaves, he'll be brilliant.

It might be that he is great, but will he get the chances at united to prove it? He is very wasteful and we're not good enough to carry him at the moment.

Too early to call this a must win game? I don't think anyone can afford to get too far behind City this year.

Well, we could be a couple behind already so we'll do well to get any points from this....disappointingly poor...AGAIN!!

Hard to do much with refereeing like that.

We are **** though.

You look way off top 4 at the minute.

What was that defending? Why turn back towards goal when you've got two players bearing down on you?

The entire problem is midfield. We hold nothing up. We don't chase back.

We're missing Carrick.

WTF is the matter with this team...Ibrahimovich missing two opportunites, Rashford looking hopeless and Young not trying an easy lob of the keeper?

United shots on target = 0 ...I think we're going to have to wait a long time 'til the good times come back to OT.

It is, but I doubt Maureen sees it that way...Young's time was up years ago but he's still here...and whilst he's still England captain I s'pose there's pressure to play him.

We sold our best striker. We paid way over price for an average player. We deserve what we get. Nothing.

If this is the finished team then we'll win nothing this season and finish top 10 if we're lucky...really depressing considering the huge amount of money we've spent! I think the OT head honcho's better get on the blower to Chelski and City...this 'buying the title' tactic ain't as easy as it seems!

...and now Watford score the winner...seems like we'll get what we deserve after all
