Not always. Our team played that first half like a training pitch effort...totally unacceptable.

I wouldn't worry about it. Your team always packs up and goes home at Christmas. How many times this century have they actually finished the season ahead of United? This season will be no different.

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.

The word you're looking for is Envying😎

Sure, but why go public with it? Is that going to improve the player's mindset? Give them a bollocking behind the scenes but back them to the hilt in public. 

 

It's one of Mourinho's trade marks... snowballing negativity.

Yet he's so focused on United... if he can't find any bad points in our play, he comes on here to castigate the media for saying nice things about us.

Strange, United fans don't have any strong feelings about Spurs, they're just A.N.Other team, nobodies really.

You could say that about 90 per cent of the teams with anti United fans.

 

It's funny, it looks like that 6-1 has turned into a major positive for us, and could be their undoing. It showed us the way to a much more effective formation, while they seem to think they are a lot better than they actually are.

 

Having said that, I think Arsenal will be a really tough game at the weekend, while they have a nice run out against Brighton at home. Spurs are actually looking a lot better than we all thought, but take Kane out of that side and they look an entirely different proposition. With the depth we have now, if any of Rashford/Martial/Greenwood/Cavani got injured you would still back us to cope well. 

 

Might be unwise of Mourinho to stick the knife into all his 'squad players' with so long before he can bring in reinforcements.

He did the same at United and was roundly criticised for it. Always counter productive.

 

Arsenal will be a good test of our true current form although they are only 2 points ahead of us with an extra game played. Both PSG and Leipzig under performed.. A win and we're ahead of Arsenal..

Well we know Rashford + Bruno will if they were rested. We know Telles has COVID so Shaw is in. I would say it'll be same team as Wednesday with Martial Matic and Pogba out. Rash, Bruno, McT in.

De Gea
AWB - Lindelof - Maguire - Shaw
McTominay
Fred - Pogba
Bruno
Cavani - Rashford

No Dan James please

No problem with that but I think Mason deserves to start over Cavani after his goal.

Seems like a pop at Alli, well that’s how the media are seeing it. He’s doing a Luke Shaw on him but I seems to be backfiring.   I would say if they took Son or Kane out. He was singing the praises of Lo Celso recently so I’m not sure what his interview will do for the likes of him.

Conversely I actually think the tough love may have worked in the end with Shaw. I don't think he would have flourished under Jose, but he certainly seems to be one of our most solid and tactially aware players these days, and I think Jose drummed that into him.
