There were some massive red flags when Ole was given the job. Poch has at least had some EPL experience . Ole's  appointment was proven to be a disaster.

Calling it a disaster is a hilariously bad take.

Well I thought we kicked off at nine and tuned in as Sancho spanked his goal.

How was the rest of the game?

Citing Pochettino's last 3 months at Spurs as being representative of his managerial ability overall is a far worse take to be fair.

I don't know why you choose to be deliberately disingenuous at times.

I don't think three months is representative of Pochettino's entire career. I said that period (which was longer than 3 months - I lived with a Tottenham fan at the time I remember about him complaining about it) highlighted flaws and problems at Spurs Pochettino ultimately failed to deal with.

Given United has very similar flaws and problems, I think it's perfectly reasonable to question how he will deal with these problems differently at United.

Why would you hire a manager that was clearly under qualified.

Well, we played a lot better than we did in the first match against Villareal. De Gea was by far the busiest keeper. Luckily, Villareal don't have great goal scorers! Great to see DvdB start, and Sancho played well - his best match for United?

De Gea and Ronaldo both keen on a bit of silverware and the Champions League seems like the best shot, what with the might of Ranieri’s Watford not in. 
But seriously De Gea was amazing. And if Sancho and Fernandes can step out of Ronnie’s shadow, not forgetting how experienced at these ties Rashford and Cavani are, a bullocking cup run shouldn’t be ruled out.

I just wanted to come here and say that De Gea is absolutely stupid for doing what he did. He rolled the dice hoping to get a foul and came out wrong. What a silly risk to take.

My memory recalls him doing something similar in the past, but the attacker missed the goal.

I think the decision on the field to give the goal is correct. You can't have keepers feign injury when they're threatened and just stop the game. If De Gea was actually injured to the point where he could no longer stand up I would argue that Arsenal should've given a goal back from a sportsmanship perspective... but of course he wasn't injured. Stupid stupid stupid.

Always good to beat this mob, but not as pleasurable as when AW was in charge.

I was just watching The United Way again , and some things popped into my head....most of which are not directly related to the film. 

Roy Keane has been near-on erased from Club history, because of his bust up with Fergie. This is so sad. 

For Keane, R., also see Ince, P. Incey, at his best, is possibly the best midfielder I've ever seen. A force of nature. Again, his contributions have been downplayed. 

Why isnt the 2008 team venerated like the 99 side? The 2008 team is the superior team....you listen to the 99 team on the United podcast, they say they'd lose to the '08 team. They would have won the Treble as well, had Fergie not shat the bed vs Pompey.

Speaking of not enough kudos; Oh Teddy, Teddy. His efforts actually won the 99 final. Scored the first, and won the header for Ole to prod home a relatively easy chance. Not many people talk about Teddy though. 

The FA Cup win vs Liverpool in the fifth round was the most dramatic game of 1998/99, and that's saying something!

That season Eric came back (was that 94/95 or 95/96?), how good was he? I remember him being on a one man crusade. And Schmeichel stopping Asprilla and Wor Les time and time again. 

Mark Robins - given a fair go, or not?

And is it Rang-nick or Ran-nyick?

Looks like a few anti vaxxers at Old Trafford! 

You'd think it would be mandated for players and officials to be jabbed.

@rustydunks, this comment;
"The FA Cup win vs Liverpool in the fifth round was the most dramatic game of 1998/99, and that's saying something!"
That is certainly saying something alright!
I don't know what happened in that game, but my main memory of your treble that season was our ridiculous loss to you in the FA Cup semi. We had the game won, Bergkamp taking a 90th minute penalty with the score at 1-1, but he bloody missed it. Apparently he was so affected by this he never took another penalty again. ManU were down to 10 men and completely up against it, until that ridiculous length of the field effort from Giggs in extra time. It was insane, I'm still spewing to this day. I think from memory we coughed up a huge lead in the league that season as well. 
In reality ManU were very close to winning no trophies, and then ended up winning all 3! So symbolic of Fergie really. When his teams were up against it, they still had the best winning mentality going around, they never quit, they always thought they could win from anywhere, anytime, and often did.

And United score. 
This is a real premier league game.
Fans right in, feelings everywhere. The underdog bossing, cards being shown. 
Newcastle were looking good for a result. United hit some meaningless long balls and worse shots since I’ve been watching, but the goal is guna lift them.

Our players are naive and scared. We can't do three decent things in a row. Basic skills gone astray, miss-kicks that should happen once in a player's career career happening every couple of minutes.

I have previously supported Maguire but this season he has gone completely off a cliff. Every camera shot of him is him diving into a tackle and getting beat.

Fred cannot control a football. He cannot play a forward pass. He cannot make a tackle. He cannot break up play effectively. His good performances look alright as he's energetic and likable, but really they've just covered up a pretty lackluster footballer.

Lots of other players to call out.

As United are playing poos at the moment, we can still have fun with wild speculation based on absolutely nothing....

Top 3 United players who are definitely maybe anti-vax;
Ronaldo - when you're that much of a prick in real life, you don't need any more pricks 
Matic - see Djokovic, N.
Martial - sulker supreme would love to grumble about the nanobots.

Top 3 United players that are definitely vaxxed;
Mata - such a lovely man
Maguire - jabbed in his forehead
De Gea - heavy metal lover ain't afraid of no jab!
