Blimey. What happened to Luke Shaw? Looks like he has been partying with Andy Ruiz. 

He's always had trouble keeping the weight off which is a problem for someone in his position.

How good is the Maguire, Lindelof pairing....    

Had a scandinavian feel about it this match. Ole is Norwegian  Lindelof Swedish Ericsson Danish Spurs can't Finnish.

Thanks for the good wishes Rick.   Frankly I have got a little tired of that strange man from the blue side of Manchester stalking me and constantly asking "where are you from ?" "where did

He'll be the next Neville Southall (or David White) when he retires.

It’s a shame. I thought Sumo Shaw was destined to be a regular England defender for years to come. 

He clearly hasn’t the discipline or dedication required.

He's just come back from injury (again), and done pretty well. Sure the weight will come off a little more if he stays in the team.

 

A bit like Rooney, it appears he needs to play every game to keep the weight off.

A weeks a long time in football so the saying goes or is that politics ?

 

Prior to the Spurs and City games pundits, journos and all the "couch" experts on various forums were saying OGS should be sacked ................now it OGS should be backed.

.................The fickle world of football.

 

I didn't see the Spurs game, or a repeat ,but apparently it was a well deserved win.

 

Against City been a long time since we have seen such a pacy. fluid display, albeit only really in the first half and then backs to the wall blocking Cities efforts. Was almost feeling sorry for the City LB as James gave him a torrid time,what a buy that boys been.

Wan Bissaka will surely win the most successful tackler of the year ,his technique is quite unusual but so effective. He basically took Sterling out of the equation and that takes some doing

 

Fred has made fools of us all ,close to MOM and seems all the hours spent with Carrick after training are paying off or a switch has been flicked reminiscent of when Vidic and Evra first came and were written off as a waste of money.

 

Can't remember enjoying a game as much but totally aware that a rejuvenated Everton will be a tough encounter next weekend. The Europa game on Thursday will probably see the "kids" get ago plus the players that are just not getting game time.I think OGS finally knows his best side

 

Post match v City Pep appeared to be very sombre and almost tossing the towel in, that's not the leadership you need from you manager/ coach and maybe he's already preparing for life after City

He put in an amazing amount of work off season,shown in videos he posted,had knocked of a lot of weight.He's just got the physique of someone who needs to be playing week in week out something though injury he hasn't been able to do.foolish to write him off

So Rick do you want to discuss the game (rationally i hope)?

 

Early doors ManUs front 4 were cutting through us. I thought Pep took a huge gamble on playing Angelino who lacks pace against Speedy James - maybe his logic was we'll retain possession like we had vs Burnley - and i thought Pep needed to make a big decision at nil nil as you taking the lead on a break was on the cards. I reckon he should have moved Walker over to the left or put Cancelo there sacrificing Angelino ( excellent going forward but too slow defensively). He didn't and ManU took the lead. Big mistakes by Pep.

 

After that i thought it was a combination of our wastefulness (Jesus and Sterling should scored) and badluck (when your CB deflected the ball behind with his foot i knew we weren't going to get anything) and excellent defense by ManU. As ive said before, this is now the template for playing against City: Wolves did it best so far with a flawless performance.  At the moment we dont have it in us to combat this from the opposition like we did successfully in previous seasons.

 

Overall i thought it was ManUs best performance i have seen this season - even Lingard played well for God's sake.

Would you prefer him to say we're still going to win the PL (which he'd be ridiculed quite rightly for) or to be realistic and say  things aren't quite right now for a variety of reasons but we'll  work on putting them right, well try and win the cup competitions this season and we'll try and be better next season. I find it comforting / refreshing that my manager is giving an honest appraisal AND saying we'll come again next season (as we did after disappointing seasons in 2013, 2015 and 2016 to win the PL again). The media are trying to make out the wheels have completely fallen off but it's been one of those seasons City's management and fanbase accepts pretty much whatever can go wrong has gone wrong. I don't think we have become a poor team we just need a few things to click again. I'm confident well be right again.

Nothing to discuss. We all saw the game. I want to move onto bigger and better things.

He was amazing. Even better against Spurs I would say. Not sure which United midfielder of the past I would compare him to. He seems more mobile than Carrick, can get up and down very well. At his best (not forgetting his bad games too), I'd say he's closest to a young Roy Keane.

Another false dawn for 

OGS .and M/U supporters.

Prior to the last 2 wins Totts and Mcity .

OGS and his squad have served up Dross only football so far this season.

so can excuse M/U supporters for getting in a hot lather😎

Out fought and out worked by relegation fodder. 
 

How many times can OLS justify his side being beat by a team who wants it more:

5km more covered by the opposition. 
1km more covered by old man Deeney back from Injury than bone idle Martial. 

 


If OLS can’t get them to do the basics like work rate then surely his job must be on the line.
