    Why is Matic playing again?

    Cool to see Hamilton though, hopefully he gets some meaningful game time. Been a beast for me on FM this year.

    Because Pogba is absent, no doubt that Jose would have rested Matic today if Pogba was fit.

    Nice play with Mata to get that through ball, and good finish by Lukaku.

    Truly dreadful performance again. Huddersfield are bloody dreadful, have seen under 8s defend better than they do.


    I cannot believe we are going to be paying Sanchez half a million quid this week to produce a performance like this...

    This is going to be the worst performance I have ever seen from a team who are going to win. Awful.

    What are you guys talking about, I thought we played quite well considering the team that was put out.

    Professional performance.

    Basically your first team bar 3 players against Huddersfield.

    Goal changed the game obviously and we were fortunate to get the goal so early but Joses change at HT worked, Lukaku and Smalling were excellent. Back 4 seemed pretty solid and with Carrick adding extra support we were comfortable. All to add I guess was that McTominay and Sanchez weren't particularly great and great to have Bailly back

    Was better in the second half, but come on, first half we couldn't move the ball forward, couldn't control possession, couldn't stop Huddersfield from creating chances. If we play like that in mid week we could get smashed.

    Huddersfield are beyond trash, they looked thoroughly incapable a couple of weeks ago and weren't much better today. They completely dominated the first half but never really made good chances and were always vulnerable when the ball was in their half.

    Also, I bet Hamilton and Gomes really benefited from sitting around in the cold for 2 hours, likewise Bailly playing less than 20 seconds...

    However, I do have a positive (weird, I know). Because we were so deep, when the ball did come forward it put Lukaku in exactly the position you want him in, in a foot race against defenders charging through on goal. It looked very dangerous in that situation and we haven't played anything like enough into that this season.

    All i'm saying is that after the last couple of weeks this was the typer of performance we needed, but there is much still to improve on.

    Huddersfield are a prem team (who have beat us at home already this season), we had a goal disallowed and Huddersfield never had a chance at our goal. We defended really well.

    Just trying to be a bit positive.

    Fair enough.

    I was listening on the radio and it sounded like you were very poor.

    Irrelevant game midweek before Chelsea at Old Trafford. That should be a cracker.

    Yeah I think it will be interesting to see what Mourinho does with Matic. Look nackered towards the end of the game, wondering if he will rest him midweek so he will be rested up against Chelsea. Hopefully Pogba will be fit to face you as well.

    Looks like Semi-finals for FA cup could be United, City, Chelsea and Tottenham.

    Can't remember the last time the semi finals had all top teams in it.
