    Bring on Aston Villa! If Spurs beat city…we will be champions monday night after we beat Villa. Am I right?

  2. ys says:

    It seems the simple tap-in goal by Valencia has brought his form back. He had a couple of decent crosses after that. However it is kind of too late in the season. Just bring the title home and we ll figure it out next season.

  3. Toms says:

    Aaaah Still so happy with the Kagawa signing. I feel like he’s completely underappreciated still. 4 wins sees us with the title (assuming City win everything)

  4. wayne says:

    Toms we need 6pts assuming City wins every game

  5. Marq says:

    We need to built the team around Kagawa rather than trying to fit him into a rigid 4-4-2

  6. soccerisfootbal says:

    lovely first goal, kagawa completely fooled all the west ham defenders with that dribble move, and set tonyv a goal on a platter.

    we had another type of play like that but evra couldn’t pick out a man lol.

    was it me or did valencia look a lot better today? he put in some decent balls, perhaps RVP could have scored from one of them today.

    RvP goal was offside, but he deserved some luck after having his goal at reading incorrectly disallowed.

  7. Phil Jones' Birdshit Streaks says:

    This season needs to end ASAP. We are limping over the finishing line playing unassuming football. We can’t possibly slip up again, can we? I fucking hope not

  8. Brisbanefan says:

    Last night’s game showed why Fergie will accept any offer of over £30m for Rooney.
    As a MF he’s clueless. Can’t tackle; can’t make short term passes; positioning all wrong.
    But his efforts last night tells me that he’s no longer interested. That being the case it’s time he moved on. I think he knows it, and Fergie knows it.

    City to get beat on Sunday and UTD to wrap up the title by beating Villa on Monday night. Serious thought should then be given to the players who should be moved on – Young, Nani, Cleverley, perhaps Wellbeck, Anderson, and no doubt others.

    I’m expecting an influx of players during the summer. 2 MFs, a CB, a striker, and another winger.
    Without these reinforcements I can’t see UTD winning another CL any time soon. And I’m sure Fergie wants another CL title before he retires.

  9. GFS says:

    I feel taking Kagawa out was a smokescreen so that papers wouldn’t talk about Rooney as clearly he was the most composed player on the pitch and he was dangerous too hahahaha. Anyway I think had Kagawa stayed on we would have probably scored a third

  10. five says:

    Yeah Tom Cleverley who handled Yaya Toure and didnt look out of place against Real fucking Madrid should be sold at this tender age with his best years of football still ahead of him, go do one.

    Re-enforcements are needed and they will come but not at the expense of Tom and Danny..they are key to our future, SAF will give Young a go based on his good first season and work-rate this season so dont expect him to be sold…Nani sadly I can see being moved on..Anderson too.

  11. AntiScouser says:

    SAF: “We probably deserved more, but in the context of such a physical game, I think we should be proud of them. It was a display of real champions.”

    I think he’s thinking that if he keeps repeating we’re playing like champions, our non-existent flair and panache will magically realize themselves.

  12. LucasUTD says:

    Haha yeah I was shocked when I read Fergie’s post match comments.

    Was he watching the same match as us?

  13. Redblood says:

    We’ve been grinding out results with poor display.. I don’t know when are we gonna get to the 2008 level of play. All the same let’s wrap this thing up and work on next season

  14. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Have serious questions about Rooney in MF and Carrick Jones was not the deep pair we had hoped. Don’t really recall Jones in the game to be honest.

    We are playing like Champions, coming back from being 2 down. Ref not giving us a sniff. Just wish we had left Kagawa on. He had much more creativity than anything else we had on the pitch.

    That said, Hernandez could have knicked it at the death. We had our chances.

    Bring on Aston Villa. 3 home games in 5 should be enough for the League, just wish we could play some attacking free flowing football again.

    Probert was shocking!

  15. Hans says:

    Great first goal, lucky second!

    Yet again Fergie got it wrong with his selection and tactics. I will never understand why he is playing people out of position if he does not have to. I do not know what Fergie is about BUT WE DID NOT PLAY LIKE CHAMPIONS. On this form and way of play, we would not even be a top 4 team! He’s better get this right soon!

  16. Red Robin says:

    I think we are just getting restless with this campaign. Personally, I want to light my winning cigar in front of my ABU friends as soon as possible. I can’t be bothered their abuses any longer. Grrr!!

    On positive note. This was an away game where team like Chelsea were beaten, CIty were held to draw. Not saying this draw result is good for us, because I prefer winning, but it is a tough place to go. I can understand why Fergie say we played like a champion.

    We have 3 more games to beat!

    Come on you reds, support your team!

    20 Believe.

  17. Costas says:

    Great movement by Kagawa for both goals. And 2 guys that needed a goal more than anyone else.

  18. danielandthebus says:

    All Kagawa… He should play more. He links up well with ANYONE. If everyone had his mentality, to help each other ATTACK, I’m sure we’ll be feared again. We haven’t been feared since Ronaldo left us, which is fair, he’s a beast, but we’re Man United!

  19. mcdude says:

    I rely don’t knw, how we played like champions as fergie said in his press confrence after the match: i tink he’s just tryin to cover up for his ineptitude. We are not gonna see change anytime soon! We are vry luck to be toping the league with a 15point that is been reduced with each game played as we crawl to the finish line… Many will agree with me that had it been we are leading with only 6points; it’s obvious we would’ve conceded the league title by now. I no longer watch my team with excitment… How times have change! What happen to we’re gonna model our game the barce way after those brutal truth that we were dealt a footballing lesson by one of the greatest footballing team?

  20. lordrt says:

    lucky to get 1 point from that game, west ham clearly overpowered united in that one, but kagawa was in good form to create two goals (unlucky not to score that 2nd one). is this rooney’s signing out after a very below-par performance???

  21. King Eric says:

    Five. Spot on pal.

    Anyone who thought last night was gonna be an easy three points is deluded. Always tough down there and they have hit a bit of form. Wigan battered city but no cutting edge. Spurs will get summat Sunday. Would have taken a point last night.

    Kagawa showing the doubters what he is all about.

    That cunt Carroll is stealing a living as a footballer.

  22. King Eric says:

    I am baffled however as to why Tom not starting. All the big games we have won he has started.

  23. King Eric says:

    mcdude. You don’t top the league table being lucky.

  24. King Eric says:

    Half you moaning cunts wont know whats hit you when Fergie leaves. You know nowt else except winning pots.

  25. FletchTHEMAN says:

    King Eric.
    Worry that Cleverley is injured. Only explanation? But tactically I have heard Fergie comment on size. As it was, we gave up the first goal because we couldn’t match up Carroll at the back post. So tactics or injury.

  26. Dazbomber says:

    I think we are playing like Champions, just because the football is not flowing doesn’t mean any thing. Champions take points when they don’t play well , when they come back from losing positions , they keep going when they get decisions against them,this is what Champions are made of . When we win the league no one remember s games like this but these are the games that sorts out Champions from also ran’s . So suck it up and enjoy your 20 league title.
