Stupid, but I doubt we were going to beat City anyway

Good point, especially as the FA don't increase the ban length for that kind of thing anymore

You've got to have grounds though, they'd need to come up with something better than they want him to play the next game. I'm sure they'd come up with some sort of charge.

As far as I know they do.

And, as rbullivant says, what grounds would you possibly appeal on ? Other than 'he got away with body slamming players on to the ground last season and this wasn't as bad as that'

I think it was similar to the Mane challenge earlier in the season. Both were really dangerous, but I honestly don’t think there was any intent from Pogba, it was a really weird challenge from Bellarin, and his leg shouldn’t have there. Very frustrating for him to be suspended for the City match.

We have played like sh 1 t & we now are a goal down. This is a must win game, not a draw, not a loss, but an absolute win only game.

First attack is after City score. Why wait, at least have a go.

Mind you, Jose is right about one thing, they like to fall over if there’s a gust of wind. Equaliser. That boy, Rashford.

You might as well have Allardyce managing. The distance between Lukaku and any other Utd player is ridiculous.

Hopeless and gutless...yeah,we got a fortunate equaliser but, christ, WTF is wrong with this team!?

...take off Lukaku and put on Zlatan, can't believe how few attempts we've had!

If we don't win this Credit Card team at home, who will? So we have to win this with positive tactics.

Lukaku is an absolute liability. Esp in our own box. That’s two goals today, and DDG had to save his blushes against Arsenal.

It was a sloppy pass from lukaku in the first place that started that move. He is hopeless, I never liked him, what our pathetic scouts saw in him, I don't know. Back handers I guess...
