That first half was comical, some of the worst defending I've seen from any Prem team for a long time.

All the top teams press as one unit, Man United do this half arsed press with one or two players that doesn't actually cut any passes off and allows teams to just break it and play through the lines easily. So many times there was 1 pass that had Liverpool attackers outnumbering the Man United defence.

Something has to give because Ronaldo is never going to press, same thing happened at Juventus and they became a worse team for it overall - despite all the goals he scored. Speaks volumes that well respected senior players have come out and said they're happy he's gone (and there has been a serious upturn in form recently as well)

Great win for us yesterday, we're just a really good and solid team. Antonio is an absolute nightmare for defenders and could do a job for any team in the league. Rice is just getting better and better and is becoming a complete box to box midfielder, fucking superb again.

Had Liverpool got out of second gear yesterday then god only knows what the score would have been. 

Who'd have thought after first 3 games you'd be level on points with us after 9 😆

Haha I noticed this today, absolutely mental.

Honest question.

Who would you rather have in your leading your line in 2021, Cristiano Ronaldo or Michail Antonio? 🤭

i mean one will get you 30 goals a season and the other get you 10 and play half the games because of injury lol

I'll take any manager that gets rid of that cancer Harry Maguire - the hero defender who should be playing for Newcastle. 11 goals in 3 games conceded since he's been back and yet we keep playing him... 

Would have so much respect for Ole if he stepped down, if he really loves the club. Diego Simeone would be immense.

Roma - Napoli was pure madness, but we ended Napoli's perfect record with a draw. Mourinho has been sent off during after two sarcastic thumbs up to the referee and Spalletti was also red carded after he congratulated the ref after the final whistle. 
Abraham had a fantastic chance to score and close the game but he missed it. 

Hows Mourinho doing? Saw the 6 -1 did he rest a few players?

He so wants that Newcastle job i think lol

Lol yeah that was pretty bad, he had to play our whole b team against the Norwegian champions because he wanted to save our A team for Napoli yesterday, it was so humiliating to watch.


But he's doing well with us so far. A draw against the best team in the league (Napoli) which has 8 wins in 8 games is lowkey a good result.
However Roma needs to be more clinical, that was an easy 2-0 for us and we didn't even score.

As far as Roma in general, we're still beating most teams outside of Juve, Napoli, Inter, Milan like we were doing pre Mourinho though. If he can break into that top 4 and lead us to push for the League then it's an achievement.
We have Milan on Sunday and it's another big one, let's see how it goes 😬

The fact Ole is still manager this morning is proof we’re not a serious football club anymore

i honestly thought he'd be gone last night. Not a fan of Conte.

Ole puts himself in an even more difficult situation now - more fans/players/coaches will turn on him and he further damages the club he loves. 

Such a shame for players like Donny, Lingard & Sancho they should be playing.

Looks like we’re going to give Ole the next 3 games. Why? Ffs. Spurs and Atalanta away and City home. Sink or swim I guess but fucking hell Ole has been there a few years now and we’re even further away than before while adding 3 world class players. Why aren’t the glazers fuming? Why aren’t they thinking we’ve spend hundreds of millions here and fuck all is happening. Ok it’s not there money but still, why can’t they wrap their head around that if they brought in a world class director of football to steer the club in the right direction they wouldn’t have to spend hundreds of millions every fucking summer while damaging the brand, paying off managers etc arent they embarrassed that they keep getting it horribly wrong?

Being a United fan is much easier when you view the business as a soap opera rather than a football club. It exists solely to maximise drama, controversy, talking points, engagement etc. Football is secondary until the ownership/leadership changes.
 

That won’t happen for a while so all we can do is sit back and laugh at the nonsense.

What a result last night and without two of our best players, we're such a fucking solid team these days. City haven't lost a CC game in 5 years which is absolutely crazy. 

Knocked out both Manchester sides so far in this tournament so just know we're gonna end up drawing Chelsea haha.

Yeah great result. 
 

Bayern got smashed 5-0 last night.
 

Barca lost again, Koeman sacked. Madrid drawing at home. Gotta fancy Atleti for the title again.  

Juve lost again 😂 thought they were a better side without Ronaldo?? Don’t be ridiculous. @Elisa good win for Roma last night, into the champions league spots, Napoli and Milan look to be pulling away though. 
 

Celtic closing the gap on Rangers.

Bloody love football 😎

To be fair, you were a better side without Ronaldo. 

They're probably just adjusting back to a team that doesn't expect everything to run through one single player from an attacking sense.

Mate come on. This isn’t down to ronaldo ffs. We would have lost more games without him. In fact he’s the reason Ole is still in a job. This pressing stuff is nonsense, we’ve never pressed with or without Ronnie.
