That's why Moyes should have been silent. Winning and playing good football. If Pogba had taken just one of the chances he had earlier in the game, this could have been a bigger score.

Ibra looked off the pace all day and ends the match with 1 goal and 2 assists. Can't complain at that.

The score summed up Manchester United. 3 useless years with Moyesvanhell & 1 good one with Mourinho

So Tevez has signed for Shanghai, and reported to be the highest paid player in the world! I assumed at his age and being paid so much he was a free transfer - but they have paid anywhere between £40-70m! I bet Boca were wetting themsleves... Absoubtly mad - surely we can sell Rooney to China?!

They said somewhere in the region of £600k p/w on the radio earlier.

I can understand them needing to pay massive wages to get people to come, but what is with the huge transfer fees as well? Why is a player suddenly worth 3x the amount just because China are paying?

Agreed. Utter madness. Would have thought Chelsea would have bitten anyone's hand off for Oscar if they offered £30m for him, and Tevez at 32, is probably worth £10m, £20m max.

I can't agree more. If we had all the penalties etc we should have been given, this season we would be not far behind Chelsea.

How we are losing is beyond me, we just can't be losing games where we have so much possession!

Have not seen the match, but followed closely - but appears we have got our 'never say die' attitude back. Happy 75th birthday Fergie.

Really important win.

No surprise to see Valdes having a worldy against us

Great result but how it wasn't 5-0 plus is amazing.

Think it'd have been a rout if the Ibra goal was correctly given.

Gotta laugh how the goals came in pretty much as soon as Fabio came on

But this was the first time I've had that gut feeling we'd turn it around after their goal since the Fergie days.
Even at all square under LVG and Moyes with 15 minutes left I'd pretty much conceded it'd either be that or a loss.

A shame we hadn't finished it off earlier to be honest... somehow I think this was supposed to be Bastian's send-off.
