Not quite sure if that was a dig or not? Going to be lucky to get there for KO.

The only reason I am going tonight is because the take up of tickets is not high, so you don't have to pay the membership fee to get a ticket. I've never known that before for a league game since they introduced payed membership.

No it wasn't a dig, just making a point, despite how badly they play and how bored you expect to be, you bought a ticket. A few empty seats might have said far more for the future of the club.

LVG will be leading the club into being the richest club in the world, whilst you might think they care about trophies and the like, in reality they're out to maximise their investment. If that is to play tedious football, as long as he's not asking for more money, then he's doing a great job.

I can but hope for an exciting 4-2! If we win tonight we have the best home record in the league - despite the lack of entertainment and the plethora of 1-0, and 0-0s. Madness. He won't be there much longer.

Its certainly the least energetic I feel about going to OT. Excited to see the youngters though.

Not sure what's going on here, United are playing with a sense of urgency!

This will never be the case at United. They have an army of members waiting for tickets, and an army of non-members who will take them up after the members say no.

The club don't really need a full house of 'fans'.

I like Martial, but he doesn't score enough for me. He's certainly one for the future, as long as the future involves him realising he's the most likely in the team to score, and him getting selfish.

edit:> Is Depay here on community service or something? He's pathetic. I hope someone steps up Depay for his flight home, because he's hopeless.

Reasonably decent performance. Palace never really threatened.

Awful atmosphere though. Thousands of empty seats. The guys next to me all walked out when Fellani came on - still 15 mins to go.

Our corners are pathetic - how can we continually take short corners that end up at the half way line.

Our corners have been bobbins for a long, long time. Maybe since Beckham left?

We don't even bother trying to get the ball in the box! Although we really don't have much of a threat to aim at.

That's Milner's problem - we do try and get them in the box but they never get past the first man (even when we are playing against 10 men like last night).

The ironic thing about Milner is - when he crosses from the wing (which should be a lot harder skill than taking a corner) then his crosses are fine

Tell me about it, I was screaming 'Don't Take another short corner' yet they did, again & again. Then they took a normal corner & a goal came from it.
