Funny after the loss last night. There's a monkey off our backs in terms of this unbeaten bollocks. I think it removes a bit of pressure. And i think we will play better for it on Sunday so I am feeling confident we will get a result.

I’m loving that all the pundits are tipping a Utd win.
If we turn up we are head and shoulders above them in almost every department, getting past De Gea will be the problem. He is an exceptional goalkeeper, we just need to take a high percentage of our chances. I feel positive

Not seen any of the Rag media PRs out yet, usually we've had all the wise old sages spouting about the Rag Way and purporting all thing Scum.

Was that a 'No shit Sherlock' comment or what? He thinks that if they win every game and take every point then they'll be closer to us! The fact that he thinks they'll win every game is disturbing in itself.

Pogba's as bad and him missing the match is more hurtful to the Rags pockets than anything else. There'll be multiple shots on TV showing his new haircut during the match, probably when we've got the ball and attacking their goal.

But where's the likes of Crerrand, Yorke, Robson et al, beating the Rag drum and getting their propaganda across.

Have heard it all from Rags this week.

We have been lucky for weeks now blah blah, fucking blah., we are playing shit, scoring injury time winners to secure undeserved victories. No point pointing out irrelevant little things like facts to them, possession statistics, shots on goal etc.

They most definitely think they are going to do us on Sunday.

Personally I think the only way the Rags can win will be with set pieces, hoofball to Lukaku, and Marcus Neymar. That is all that worries me.

Not a chance they will do us playing football.

Only playing anti-football.

I remember him, was there for an eternity and played about 10 games a season. Sky must be scraping the barrel to drag him out of retirement. Saying that, he does seem to do a lot of Rag/Chevrolet advertising abroad so just another one who is 'On Script'.

Just the start I feel.

Fingers crossed, both of them come through.

Read a piece on the Beeb and anti-football was what they were saying Maureen should play, and probably will. However, after watching the Arsenal match, I think they will make it look like they're attacking and not playing 2 separate entities, attack and defence. Maureen allowed the front 3, or those that were forward, to chase the ball and put pressure on the defence, while making sure that the other 7 were parked in their own half in case it didn't work. It did work on that occasion but even with a back 6 at times, Arsenal still got 33 shots away. Didn't seem like very good defending to me.

From us, hopefully it will be a breath of fresh air playing a team who have something to prove. I'm hoping their ego gets the better of them and they actually try and play football, at least to make it a spectacle. Our last few opponents have had no intention of playing football, and can you blame them, so it may be that the Rags come out and at least try to test us rather than park that double decker that Maureen is so keen on.

Or am I being naive?
