Sadly there's been absolutely nothing from United this season to support that belief...

Shows what I know! :lol:

Papers over the cracks but that was a much better 2nd half, also really glad it was Sanchez that got the winner, he needed that.

I'm not a United fan, and that helped me with my prediction. As a fan of a club, we tend to be overly critical and, sometimes, we don't see the brighter aspects. United have had a poor start but they're far from being a poor side; they certainly have the capability of beating a lower-placed side at their place... even when starting the second half from a deficit.

Edit: I am doing gooseberry fool in my Dream Team league :slol: .

He continues to play players out of position and then slate them. The comeback in the second half was brilliant but a better side would have put us away.

From Guardian's post-match live report: I have no idea what formation United were playing in the second half. There were times when Pogba looked like he was playing sweeper, at other times it seemed like a back four with Matic and Smalling.

That Ralls tackle on Moura today was ridiculous, how Warnock can defend it is beyond me. Clearly a straight red as it was straight forward cheating and malicious. Just took the player out several metres from the ball.

If a super-intelligent alien fell to Earth and spent decades learning about the human condition, then an attack fleet from the alien's home planet came to annihilate the world which had enslaved its kin for so long, and the UN managed to negotiate a game of Pictionary to decide the fate of humankind, and the first card the alien drew from the pack was "victim complex", they would draw a picture of Neil Warnock, and all would understand why the planet has to die.

What? :lol:

I don't like Neil Warnock and think he has a bit of a victim complex, with is why he defends bad tackles and peddles the "little Cardiff/Sheffield United/whatever" mentality.

Why don't Arsenal start both Aubameyang and Laczette? :?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Reckon their pace suits them playing about 60 and 30 minutes respectively, with one working as an impact sub to rip apart tired defenders. Seems to be going well for them so far!

They do Aubameyang was on the bench because he had been ill and missed the Europa game.

Still waiting to be convinced by Mkhitaryan if I'm honest. Not sure if I'm missing something with him or expecting too much, but he never seems to be a standout performer.
