Hi

Watched Man United with Brighton last night.
What a change in two days. They played with purpose and power. This was rewarded by a (0 - 3 result away from home.

It could ( should ) have been more when Oly removed his best players and it was to save them for more difficult tasks to come.

Cheers

hi

I watched Man United play Norwich yesterday.

It was the worst performance I have ever seen from United.....and I've seen some c***p in my time. It was like watching paint dry.

Olly changed his side with 8 changes and they played as if they were strangers.

But.....after scoring a lucky goal on the last minute, they won and now go into the semi finals of the FA Cup !!!!! Norwich battled hard after having man sent off. They wuz robbed.

Not sour grapes at all Steve, Liverpool have played well and deserved to be champions.

However in the time the premiership has been running there have been 7 winners.

Liverpool          1
Blackburn          1
Leicester          1
Arsenal            3
Man City          4
Chelsea            5
Manchester United 13

These are the facts. In the seasons where United didn't win it they were second on 6 occasions and third on 3 occasions.

Sour grapes will get you nowhere. Klopp may not quite be God, aka Shankly, but he sure is seated at the right hand of the father...

Of all the campaigns since the Premier League started, Liverpool's this season has been the finest of them all. They've got some amazing home-grown players on the up and up as well. The future is bright. And I think future threats to our supremacy will come from Chelski, not Citeh. If the latter are banned from the Champions League, I can't see De Bruyne staying. Or Sterling. Or Pep even. And their defence, let's face it, needs urgent attention.

So well done to Liverpool for winning the premiership. Good luck in the chase for the highest points total.

Ye gods, that was difficult.


Just remember though you have won it once. Now to prove you're a great team try and do what United did and win it 5 times this decade and 6 times the next decade and a couple of times in the decade after that.

Hi Steve

I agree with you about Ancelotti. He has created a well organised unit. Does'nt produce much skill or excitement but .....hey... that's Football

I watched City tear apart a shattered Burnley due to off the field stupidity.

Nuff said

Ancelotti is a wily old bugger and he had his defence well organised. In a good few matches before the lockdown, Liverpool were stymied by several teams parking the bus. I thought Liverpool warmed to the task more in the second half and were moving the ball around more in the way we're used to seeing, but all too often the long balls were inaccurate and the final pass wasn't hitting its target. They looked blunt up front. They definitely missed the Salah threat and the Robbo surges up the flank. One or two heart-attack defensive moments too. I'm not worrying. Go, Burnley!

Hi Steve

I don't like the fake crowd noises.

I atched the Liverpool " Darby" Everton decided tohave all the side back in defence. It made a farce as Liverpool just could not break through. In fact Everton nearly scored as they hit the post with Keeper well beaten.

It's not all over yet !!!!!!!!

Hi I watched the game and must agree that The Blades got robbed by a lack of co-ordination between the Referee and the operator of the technology.

I also have watched several other games and some strange decisions have been made.

I include the decisions made in " my Team's recent battle with Spurs.

Some strange decisions against both sides and I think United got the better deals.

So nothing's changed. Sheffield United are still getting rubbish decisions against them.

Having been denied a goal earlier in the season because VAR intervened so say the player's big toe may have been a millimeter offside, now another one when the ball was miles over the line but VAR said nothing.

Could be important and expensive at the end of the season.

Nice piece in the Guardian by Klopp. Your opinion of him will soar when you read it. Funny how so many of the greatest managers in English football are good socialists. Shankly, Cloughie, Fergie, now Jurgen...

And I do think that any decent football fan would fully sympathise with Liverpool FC when you consider the brilliant season they've had and the great entertainment they've given us. But nobody's crowing and nobody's bitter, which is how it should be. Just for once, there something happening a bit more important than footie.

Tomorrow night sees Man United play in the Euro playoffs in Austria.

But due the problems caused By coranovirus they will be playing behind closed gates.

I believe that this is not fair to the players especially one ( about 1000) Man United supporters who are hoping to go.

In my opinion it will spoil the game.

What do you think?????

We also stayed in Granada and did the Alhambra by moonlight, and again the next day. On another occasion we stayed in the middle of Córdoba, right next to the Mezquita-Catedral, which is stunning. Two lovely cities, though it was a bit hot on both our visits, 40C every day! It was fine as long as you stayed out of the sun as the humidity was very low. Memorable!

I agree with you entirely, great to watch and both sides playing some good football......could have gone either way even thought Liverpool commanded most of the play.

I noticed the the game was played in a sensible way and did not spoil the match with unsavioury behavior that has marred these games by both teams in the past.

Yes losing Marcus is a huge blow, but we will have to live with it.

What a match, Mike. Seat of pants start to finish. I'm sick about Marcus. We need to see him every week. United had to go all out to get the equaliser and they nearly did it, then suffered at the end because everyone was up front. Man U fought like tigers. They were up against a very canny and experienced team. Even though they've lost Marcus and Young and have other injuries, they were great to watch. Days of hope, Mike!

It's such a shame that we're now at the bottom of the Premier League.
My poor husband nonetheless wore all his Norwich City clothes in the supermarket yesterday, and complete strangers kept coming up to him and patting him on the shoulder or grabbing his hand and shaking it.

The sad thing is, he used to be an ardent Man U supporter, but had come to love Norwich City FC too.

Hi Sen

I was at the match and United chose that day to " have a blinder"
They played the best I have seen of them this year other than the Win against Mun City
and the one against Paris san Germain.

I don't feel that the scoreline with Norwich was fair to them. They played well for the first half and could have scored except for some fine saves by our keeper and some wayward shooting by the strikers.

I know how he feels......all supprters do.

But next season I want to see a really tough challenge.

I think we'd all agree with that. This season's title race is shaping up to be about as exciting as Schumacher-era F1. Yes, you can admire the skill, but better do it standing up or you could fall asleep.

Oh, and when I opened this thread I got a pop-up ad for 'Period Pants'. Is that meant to be targeted advertising?
