"Why do you like Manchester United, Dad?" my little one asked. "They always lose."

We're the new old Liverpool, aren't we?

It's a good discussion, about loyalty and supporting your team no matter what. At my school you got the **** taken out of you if you were a glory supporter, now everyone seems to do it.

We were in the midst of our drought when I started supporting United, so this is nothing!

Supported them since the early '70's so, until Fergie, it was a few FA cups that kept us all happy...ish. I'm sure we have been as bad as this at some point but it's far harder to take since our glory years came and went. United are horrible to watch now, but I still do in the hope that a 'corner' will be turned and the title will be in our grasp once more...but that's probably how Liverpool fans felt 30 years ago!!!

You know it's going to be a long and painful 90 minutes when you see Phil Jones in the starting 11...you can add Lingard to that too!

Ole should maybe given the summer to prove himself in the transfer market but I doubt he'll survive that long

In the MEN player ratings Jones and Lingard got 1/10.

I can understand persevering with Lingard, he's been good in the (distant) past, and we are horribly light in midfield, but I have no idea how Jones gets selected, one of the kids would be better.
