Yeah, after a promising start it was ultimately as useless as usual!

...one more game of interest the tail-end of May and then LVG can be on his way!

If we had got rid of this excuse for a manager in January, we almost certainly would have been up in the top three now.

Really disappointed. We were excellent for 30 minutes, and then reverted to the slow ponderous backwards looking crap that we've been for most of this, and last, season.

We can still make top 4, but it is unlikely now. If LVG gets us a Cup then it would be a good jumping off point for both Club and Manager. I wish it was different: there is definitely progress and for half an hour today it was like watching Man Utd play but I just don't want another close season of Depay and Rojo and Old-Man Schweinsteiger signings and then more ******** about a philosophy.

Oh well, point gained today then. We need Arsenal to beat City, and win our last 3.

It almost makes it worse with City losing! We've still got some hope... But if we had gone for it today, top 4 would have been in our own hands!

Can Arsena beat city? Probably - but wouldnt count on us doing our job. Just so annoying.

That's the key. Arsenal will beat City, bit we won't get 9 points.

To be fair, Huth has history for being a filthy player also, and whilst Fellaini isn't the most talented of players, in the right system, he is a nuisance and causes defences problems. He also does appear to want to play for United, and does some work for the team.

He's not a United player, but at least he tries when he gets on the pitch.

Its almost as if giving him time to settle, make mistakes and progress through the ranks with some coaching has brought out his potential...

Every team relies on every other team's results, that's the whole concept of a league.

Rubbish!! You should rely on your team winning to acheive it and NOT others.

If you do qualify then you would have to thank Arsenal for getting you into the CL.

If we get into the Champions League, we will thank our wonderful manager & team for getting the points required & no one else.

You're trying to change the concept of a 38 game league on the fact that there are only a couple of games left.

Leicester are champions because of both their results and those of others (as is true of previous years).
Whoever stays up will do so because of their results and those of others.

If we finish in the top four (or not), it will be because of our results and the results of others.

The only time this isn't true is if the Champions win all their games.

Even if we finish fourth, we may not get into the CL anyway.
