News on Pogba not good. Could be out until after Christmas now.   Hopefully he doesn't turn out to be be another Hargreaves!  :o


His captaincy and leadership is being badly missed right enough  ::). Fellaini replacing him more than adequately. Might be no harm for him to have some time off and realise the world doesn't revolve around him.

I like big Fellaini but a more than adequate replacement for Pogba, have a word with yourself...

Fellaini is having a big impact but I doubt we'll see a midfield 2 of Matic & Fellaini for the Liverpool & Spurs game, would imagine Herrera will play in both games. Fellaini will certainly benefit from Young's inclusion in the team, 2 assists from him in the last week.

Its a tough October for United, given City's easier games we'll need 4 point from those games to still be in touch of them.

Another great result for City although for completely dominating the match they didn't create much. Chelsea were shocking, midweek game took a lot out of them and they could barely put 2 passes together when under no pressure.

Looks like Fellaini picked up a long term injury yesterday, big blow if true especially if Pogba is still 5-6 weeks away from fitness.

A bad blow for the player himself who was probably in the form of his life and on the verge of a new contract. Why was Belgium playing him on a heavy pitch when it was known he had a knock going into that game and Belgium had already qualified?

The latest seems to be itís not as bad as first feared, no cruciate damage and may be be back in a couple of weeks, I hope so.

Big game on Saturday. Form would suggest a Utd win but I guess that all goes out the window for this fixture.

Absolutely but the permanently unemployable are expecting us to score 4 again so hopefully we can oblige! 😊

A score draw looks the most likely result. A high profile game such as this played so early in the day and so soon after the international break can more often than not lessen the quality of the spectacle.

I expect us to score but lets see how we do at the other end. Carrick is out so wouldn't be surprised to see an extra centre half and play wing backs, if that happened then I could see Darmian playing as 1 of the 3.

The squad is starting to get tested with injuries to Pogba, Fellaini & Carrick.

A score draw would be a brilliant result for the scallys. Most of them are secretly fearing a hammering but the injuries United have at present makes that unlikely.  Regardless of injuries their defence is a laughing stock so I'll be disappointed if Mourinho goes there defensive but you never can tell with Jose.
