    @Louis fair point friend. But you can’t play great only half the game. The second was just poor. I am not even talking of a good chances here, We couldn’t create a good combination play. Just couldn’t see anything. And what was that cunt Luiz doing by himself in our box? Our defense has been shit this year. We conceded the same amount of goals as Arse and their defense is a joke. Something we should look at, I think.

  2. Louis says:

    @ orez
    the luiz goal was due to Evra getting drawn towards the ball. Thats what you get sometimes with him, sometimes. I dont care. Every team concedes. It was a freak goal and a non-issue. If youre going to allow any team to do what they want, take you out off the ball, drag you etc and not even award a free kick; then youre going to struggle. At that stage, Ivanovic shouldve been off, and we shouldve had the ball. Even when chelsea attacked, Luiz wouldnt have been there.

  3. Costas says:


    I won’t be too hard on our performance since we were playing Chelsea, but I don’t like this annoying trend of sitting back as soon as our goal is scored.

    Anyway, I hope I am wrong, but I am afraid that tonight was a turning point. We need something special to win this Sunday and it doesn’t helo that our captain lost his head. Again.

    Non issue? He scored from It mate. Soft goal to concede.

  5. willierednut says:

    Vidic always does this. He lost the plot. As I’ve said a 100 times before, Rio is our best CH. He’s cool calm and collect. Yes, Luiz should have been sent off, but that doesn’t mean Vidic should lose the fucking plot. If Rio doesn’t make Sunday, we’ll have to go with Brown and Smalling at shit field.

  6. Louis says:

    Its something everyone has noticed before and Im sure hes working on, but nobodys perfect. With Evra you have probably the best left back in the world who gets drawn out of position on a cross from the left, sometimes. Id take that any day. 9 times out of ten, Luiz wouldve missed that.

    The point is that the whole course of the game changed because of bad decisions. They had more possession and chances than they should have and we had less of both than we should have. Thats why we lost. If we were a perfect side with the best eleven players ever than we wouldve won anyway. But to say that we lost because we were bad – thats way off the mark.

    @ aditya

    You are an ass – wishing ref was stabbed. Stupid moron, you probably rob old ladies too.

  8. McQueen says:

    KVN – Scholes didn’t play 90 mins. And Giggs DID come on for him in the second half. ??

  9. Red Ryan says:

    Yes, Luiz should have been sent off and the penalty was very soft.

    That being said, United created nothing in the second half. Fletcher and Carrick are out of their depth in the EPL. Rooney’s goal was brilliant, but he shouldn’t have been there to start with. I’m not really surprised at the referee’s decisions in light of what we got away with against Wigan. We shouldn’t have to rely on the whistle to win games like those cunts over in the Bridge.

    Fucking stupid referee!!!! Why FA uses this stupid for many times between CHel and MU???

  11. Busby babes says:

    Costas bang on there m8 time and time again we score first, and has you rightly say there seems to be a tendencey to sit on it espically in the big games. our midfield drops off alot deeper instead of pressing further up the pitch, hence then we invite the pressure closer to our goal area. if we play with the intensity like we did in first half we’d win that game. evenwith all atkinsons mishaps.
