Love our annual straightforward cup exit at the hands of United or Chelsea.

We never seem to get the 'plucky underdog' boost so many other teams manage to muster up for the occasion. The last time I can remember any joy was in the first leg of the semi-final when Kris Commons scored an absolute belter to give us a 1-0 lead, that we squandered within a handful of minutes in the return leg at Old Trafford...

*secretly prays Derby win and Jose gets the boot*

Apparently Jose has now said Pogba will never captain the club again. He seems hell bent on turning every single player he comes into contact with these days against him.

Got to be incredibly happy with the performance. We've genuinely been the better team throughout the entire game. Not in a plucky underdog way, just in a playing better football than them way.

United equalising right after Pogba made sure tv showed him leaving is much funnier than them just losing tbh

What a dickhead

Credit to Derby though, they played exactly with the sort of tempo and desire that United haven't shown all season. Jose getting schooled by a former player says it all. He's stood still while the rest of the game moved forward.

Disgraceful!

I can’t blame Derby as they’ve been very good and they deserved the victory. We were shambles. Just shambles. Romeo. :fp: Jones, what the hell were you doing? Get out!

Funniest part of this is going to be when this game alone tricks some relegation strugglers into hiring Lampard

I'm sat here thinking if Jose was to turn it around and we finished 2nd or 3rd in the league would I still want him at the club? I'm not sure I do anymore.

Every time something goes wrong it isnt his fault and he's always more than willing to throw his players under the bus.

No! I want him out and I’ve had enough. I want United to play attractive football and attacking more like the old days of Fergie-era.

Now, it’s boring and tiresome football. Derby were joy to watch and they played great football. Well deserved.
