Why would he sit on the bench?

Not a great draw. Woukd have liked to get a higher team than Benfica, and Moscow is a pain in the arse. On the flip side, no excuses for not qualifying, and we should be winning the group.

Zlatan. Why not? Might as well have him as not. I think he'll slow us down a little but nice to have an alternative and he was so important last year. As good a signing as any.

Another frustrating game. All over them, a very close o/s goal & a penalty miss.

Another good result. Going well so far, we're among the best this year it seems.

Such a stupid time for the international break - a complete disruption, and during the end of the transfer window.

Pleased with the quick response before half time. A win today puts us in a strong position.

Utd have been poor today. Horrendous defending. Need to step it up the last 20 mins.

Dreadful game, stoke are boring. We need the type of striker that all the very top teams have. Not overpaid sitter missers. TBH we are not really any better this season, just luckier.

I didn't think Stoke were boring, they did what Stoke do and they do it well.

We're better than last year. And certainly better than the year before that. It's annoying, on another day Lukaku scores that and we're called comeback kings.

Not going to panic, top four is the minimum goal and I think we're good enough for that at least.

You mean Lukaku scores our only chance in a 90 minute match to be comeback kings. A good team would walk through stoke. All those multi millions of pounds for nothing.

How do you manage to get up in the morning with the black cloud hanging over you all the time?
