Fabio still likes a tackle, I see.

We're going ok. Rashford needs to score soon or I can see his head dropping.

We have played poor throughout the whole game & we got what we deserved. 1-2 to United. To let a team like Boro' have most of the possession is ridiculous. We need many changes before next season or it will be a repeat of this.

One minute + extra time & I can see them getting a penalty or goal. I can't see us scoring.

LVG would have drawn this kind of game. Let's see...

Well, nearly threw that away. Bizarre from Jose, awful tactics. Was never sure what Valencia was doing, he's proven to be an outstanding right back the last 3 years, but looked lost. 4 centre backs, mental against Boro.

Glad we are still paying Valdes' wages. Another horrible game to watch, but finally we have capatilised on a team above us dropping points.

Yes, another five minutes or so of that and we'd been lucky to get away from it. We're no good at this 'seeing the game out' thing, it just added pressure on top of pressure and when you've got Smalling and Jones at the back, there's always a chance of a comedy cock up.

Good points, but we're looking less and less impressive each game!

And we did have one comedy cock up when Smalling 'headed' the ball...

Excellent results this weekend. Gained points on arsenal, liverpool and city. If we won our games in hand we would be fourth.

You'd have to win them both well and one of them is City away

Clear penalty to City in the first half, which should have resulted in a red card for Liverpool and never a penalty for Liverpool.

Pretty hard done by I'd say. Still it evens itself out.

Not sure about that. Clichy's was a clumsy challenge on Firminho so we can't complain about that being given. As for the rest, most of them you could argue either way. Am I the only one on these forums who is NOT obsessed by referees?

Yeah, he missed some good chances today, but the amount of chances that we are creating is really encouraging - we miss so many, but still score a fair few (in most games).

I still think that the challenge on Sterling was as much a penalty as the one on Firminho

I'm confident of finishing above Liverpool.
