From the BBC website:

"Anon: Aguero alone scores in one weekend what Manchester United players collectively scored in 3 weekends Just shows the difference in the quality of players in both the Manchester clubs. At this rate, Manchester United have a long way to go."

Does a chorus of "Singing The Blues" count when have to wait an extra day for the rags to get beaten?

I think we need to be objective here, the rags are not crap. Mourinho has built a very competent side based on his experience of the Premier League. Under normal circumstances, and despite today’s result, they would go on to win the league, especially as their physicality would tell in the final third of the season.

His problem is that Pep works to an entirely different paradigm: Pep is aiming not for a good Premier League side, but for the best team he can create with today’s players. Pep’s standard is a great international team, or even better than that, given that he is not constrained in his selections by nationality.

I expect us to win the league by a margin of 17/8 points and rags to finish a 'worthy' second.

Remember all that bollox last week after we dropped and they gained some points? What they fail to say is that only 3 games back the points gap was 12, now it's 16. That's 2 losses and a win for them, 2 wins and a draw for us.

Mind the gap Raggies.

True enough they are not crap, (well only on comparison to us).
But what probably is true is that they are the sort of team Fat Sam would have if he had the same level of funding.

let’s see where the rags finish eh ? They have had a lot of things going for them. They are not as good as their league position suggests.

in the Daily Fail.. Souness BLASTS Pogba: 'He plays like a schoolboy running around in the playground...

So finally they have started to notice... he doesn't actually know what to do.

I hope the press start to pile pressure on now as a flop, he is the type that will get wound up by it, looks a fuclin mardarse to me.

If Mourinho were an organ grinder (wholly appropriate profession for the manager of a side that unashamedly sets their stall out to 'grind' out results), the monkey (let's give him a name such as Pep, for instance) would remain, sitting immovably on his back.

He must go to bed and have nightmares about Pep every night, either that, or he cannot sleep but, instead of counting sheep, he counts the number of points the SCUM are adrift of us, :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Perhaps. Personally I hope they are caught by Liverpool Chelsea and Spuds.

Still, any other season they would still be in the race (with last season as a possible exception).

All joking aside :lol:

We have broken them.

They are trying to play catch up at any cost , Maureen was the their perceived " Golden Ticket" and Oops look at what has happened , throwing money around like a drunken sailor in a brothel.

We are so much better in every way and we are not stopping , Pep will be here for another 5yrs and the plan for his replacement is already being thought of.

Humility is a great trait and one we should be proud off , we are going to need it in the next few years.

What a time to be a Blue.
