Hi Steve

We have been away in North Yorkshire for a while. Don't use the internet while I am away. Back for a couple of days and then off to North Wales .

I have been able to watch some of the games in pubs etc while away.

Liverpool have looked unbeatable until the wobbled a bit the other night. It was a surprise because the defence has looked so solid.
but Firmino saved some red faces and earned The Pool a deserved win.

I have watched Man United. They have managed to recover from a terrible start and have won the last three games away from home, including a good win last night over Young Boys of Berne. United were overrun on the plastic surface in the first quarter of the game but gradually improved and won relatively easily in the end.

I don't think we are any way near to hitting the standard that we United supporters expect. The defence is disorganised and the attack very wasteful in front of goal. There does not appear to be very much endeavour in the team yet.


I would not bang the drum too much about Liverpool Steve, they have done nothing yet They have collapsed in mid-season too many times recently and have not won anything of note for about a dozen years.

Man City got a shock last night but I didn't see the game. So there is many a slip twixed cup and lip.

Looks like being an interesting season I am looking forward to it.

See Ya

Mike
