Shove that up your collective gooner arses you bunch of twats
no one can remember yesterday you clown. it's all about the international friendlies from here on in.
all the 1-0 matches were better than you'd expect
hope some people got on my betfred 4/1 odds for united win. Just call me cheekybettingtwat
you lads need to get on to this anti-bants betting.
Though unlike in England, where I think the results overall made the prospective title race EVEN closer, with Roma drawing there is a looming feeling that Juve may walk Serie A again. Best Italian team of the 21st century though, so it wouldn't be undeserved.
the other, Pirlo, is still great but a bit slow for the EPL. It seems greedy of them really. Wish Pogba wouldn't celebrate like that though.
PROPER FOOTBALL, PROPER LADS, PROPER PIES

THE QUADRUPLE'S BACK ON!
shortwood have looked decent
Wayne was desperate to win. Hopefully this will build a bit of momentum, attitude wise.
No danger. No-one can hold a candle to us.
Great to see Wazza doing the business for the club he loves.
Ten years a United player now, such loyalty is rare in the modern game. Please don't sell him.
looked ridiculously fast yesterday
Think I prefer the late summer tub of lard version of Rooney. And the left behind by the sunshine bus version of Phil Jones. Still, nice to see United look scared of Arsenal for the first time in fucking ages.
Arsenal were utterly shite. A couple of chances late on seems to have kidded people into thinking they were okay. United anti-footballed them and they had no answer. Dreadful game.
You're doing that arguing with yourself thing. Again. Which has nothing to do with City being 9th I'm sure.
i mean, literally ten minutes ago, that's what you said, look, just above there ^
Take it easy, big guy. All the best.
a few months after claiming the end was nigh. I doubt many are mad fella. City fans on the other hand...
It's cute that the United fans suddenly want to play again the minute they go above City in the league!
it honestly feels like a conspiracy, and everyone including our own manager(s) are in on it. I can't think of any other reason why Sunderland only know how to defend against us, why Pellegrini keeps changing the backline, why Pellegrini keeps playing Javi Garcia, why Larsson was allowed to stay on the pitch, why the goal was allowed to stand, why we bought Demichelis, why Yaya Toure played like he was carrying several sandbags.
The worst of it is I didn't think we played at all badly in the second half, Yaya aside- we certainly played better against them than we did under Mancini, trying pretty much every single ball there is to try instead of endlessly going down the middle and then tripping over. They just defended ridiculously well and had everything ridiculously go their way. It's a voodoo curse.
Admittedly, Sunderland are gash, but they're our bogey side now so we all knew what was coming, and we were without six or seven of what most supporters would deem our strongest XI (Kompany, Nastasic, Fernandinho, Silva injured, Pantilimon and Kolarov in due to surreal needles-in-dolls form from Hart and Clichy, Zabaleta very strangely rested).
Just very, very odd that we can play such brilliant, slick football at home, but are scared of our own shadows away. Don't think Pellegrini's really helping himself by a) refusing to play a three-man midfield, and b) having the defence playing such a high line, but the main issues are the injuries, and a lack testicular fortitude away from home.
and it upsets me he didn't see Sunderland scoring the way they did using it. Really could have done with sitting further back like you say since they seemed to fancy it a great deal more than a O'Neill team would've. Hart probably would've saved it but he's deserved his place on the bench for a long time now.
Again like you say it doesn't rankle much because I'm pretty much enured to this result now- to the point where the whole Sunderland SHOCK City thing genuinely bewilders me, you people have been around for the last four years right? Somehow the fact all the major competitors also lost/drew hurts more than if they'd won, though. We leave so much ground to make up when we keep flopping around on the road like this.
most of them cleared by Wes Brown and John O'Shea :'(
