No mate, this 'shooooot' thing has been going on for years.

That's what I mean. They've run out of patience. These are fans who pay a lot of money to go to the matches and have a right to show their disapproval. If the players don't like it they should step up to the plate or get out of dodge

These fans - who are not all of our fans - never had any patience in the first place. 

 

The shoooot thing is not voicing disapproval, it's the equivalent of a young child wanting their dinner before it's been cooked properly.

For me that was like watching a pack of dogs chasing a plastic bag in the park. 

Are you referring to (Lin)Guard dog and Pug(ba)

I agree. It's out of desperation

Fantastic pun but Pogba was good last night. One of the few examples of quality on show.

 

Anyway, I've said my piece.

I had to read that twice. I watched the game and thought he was bang below average. To ensure I wasn't being biased I've just looked on the SkySports player ratings and Pogba was THE lowest ranked of all your starting 11. Every other single player got rated higher than him

I don't agree with those ratings. He was playing as a 6, not a 10. He kept us ticking over in midfield nicely and looked more comfortable on the ball than any of our other midfielders. Had a header which he should have buried. 

 

Media platforms need to state clearly if they are rating players in relation to their own ability (i.e. did he have a good game for Pogba) or in relation to the rest of the players. If he didn't play last night I think we would have lost the game. And I think most United fans have come to the realisation that he makes a massive difference, even when he has an average game.

To me there is no doubt the quality of that fixture has gone down a lot. What we would give for a Roy Keane. Forget all the usual cliches that are thrown around about him... leader, winning mentality, hard man etc.... he was technically brilliant and the best in the world at doing the most important things well. Taking the ball, running with it, making the perfect pass to the right player.

 

If anyone has forgotten just how good he is watch the Ireland vs Holland at Landsdowne Road in a WCQ, or Juve vs United CL  semi-final. 

 

I love this anecdote on Brian Clough talking to Keano before his Forest debut:

 

"He gave me a bit of advice before the game which I've basically made a career out of. He said: 'I've seen your pre-season, you can control the ball, you can pass it and you can move'.

"I said I can do those three things and he just told me to do that tonight."

 

We make football far more complicated  than it is sometimes. City and Liverpool have a lot of players who are very good at those basic skills. 

 

I loved Roy Keane as a player, and enjoy his punditry

He’s one of a very few who doesnt seem to have an agenda and just says it like it is. Love listening to him.

He ruined one of our players careers (Inge Haaland) and so I have nothing but hatred for the dirty git

Who stood over him after he'd picked up a very bad injury and accused him of faking.

You really trying to justify this? And that incident was at Leeds about 3 years prior when Keane knew he couldn't get to a ball and upended Haaland but came off worse. They had met again several times before Keane decided to end Haaland's career.

Keane was out for several months with that injury, and Haaland accused him of faking it. What goes around comes around. He <deleted> with the wrong guy.

But it was Keane who tried to do Haaland and ended up injuring himself.

 

Are you honestly trying to say that because Haaland accused him of faking it on the pitch 3 years prior, that justified what he did? 3 years had passed and they had played against each other several times since
