    With City dropping points, it crystallised our draw today. Ibrahimovic took casual with his chance, Pogba probably the same with his chances. But our play was positive and lot better than Leicester but still I'd say we are still not fluent and that's probably due to the midfield balance not there. Early days but October will define how our season objectives will ponder out.

    As poor as you've been this season, you're still well up there so there really isn't anything to worry about.

    Beat us at Anfield and you'll be level with us at 16 points after 8 games. That's 2 PPG which is really the aim when you're going after top 4.

    I know you may have title aspirations but I don't think you'll quite make it this year. Plenty of time to go for that to change though...

    These games are crying out for Carrick yet he persists with Fellaini. Eventually goes to a 3 in midfield but still poor team selections.

    Jose Memerinho is just the gift that keeps on giving. Anyone have serious estimates on how long he'll last before you sack him? 2-3 years?

    He will get sacked at the end of this season if we do not achieve champions league football for next season at the very least.

    What is happening though, we are 6th place and we still have yet to play: Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, and Everton. I really fear where our season is going.

    Who says you aren't like us who win against big teams and mess up against lesser sides?

    We've beaten Chelsea and Arsenal, but lost to Burnley...

    I hope so, but if our performance in the derby is anything to go off, that is not the case.

    All signs point to us tearing you apart, so naturally that won't happen.

    At Anfield with the form we're in, I'd put us as slight favourites. We're terrible in games we're expected to win...

    Even better, we haven't lost in the league at home since January and guess who that was against?

    I would put you more than slight favourites, we have just drawn against a team who has been thumped by every other team they have played this season. Not only that put the dark cloud of negativity and hopelessness which loomed over Old Trafford in the Moyes and LVG era seems to be making a return. I honestly have no confidence in United at the minute and I just hope we don't get turned over by you.

    idk if it was different to watch live, but I was actually happy with the performance watching on MotD. On another day, it could easily have been 6-0. Under LvG etc, finishing wasn't the problem, creating chances was, so this is a refreshing change. Finishing will come and go, but this kind of performance is good. I also thought Pogba was really good today - several incisive passes. Finishing not up to much but that's easier to fix.

    Awful attempt to be funny, truly terrible.

    Pogba was pretty bad if you ask me, and I like him.

    Not how things work though - we lost to Burnley yet somehow beat Chelsea and Arsenal away. It's all about how things are on the day and with a heated rivalry like this, form goes completely out the window.

    Although my favourite stat this season is that Jamés Milinho has the same amount of goals as Zlatan

    Nah you will win, your pressing game and the atmosphere because you are at home will be to much.

    We both know what happens in these games.

    We're in terrific form, you're playing poor football...but then Mata scores his customary worldie and DDG turns in to The Flash and makes it impossible to score.

    Every time...

    LVG had three more points last year then Jose has this year

    People will inevitably point to that stat and laugh but they forget that early on last season we were first and LVG was doing well...then the Arsenal away game came

    I don't even know what our best team is, i'd like us to go 442 against "lower" quality teams with De Gea Valencia Bailey Smalling Blind - Herrera Pogba CM - Martial LW - Mata /Mickey/Lingaard RW - Ibra and Rashford CF....

    I agree, why does know one play with 2 strikers anymore?

    Leicester getting spanked at Anfield and Old Trafford is the reason why, you need the right players for it.
