Its some run from United with 29 points from the last available 33
Yes, in a lot of games Utd have had the rub of the green.
At this point, either their luck will run out or they'll build on it and start to win games with more conviction.

Disagree on the rub of the green, its over egged.
Burnley, Villa, Sheff Utd, Southampton and Wolves games were all games that were squeaked out to some degree. Leicester was the only game where Utd were punished.
Not that I'm complaining but if last night's game had gone on 10 more minutes Burnley would have surely scored.

United thoroughly deserved to beat Burnley, Villa, Sheffield United and Soton. United might have been 2-0 down at half time against Soton but played well going forward in the 1st half and shouldn't have been in that position.

If the game had gone on another 10 minutes last night United would have scored another goal. United were lucky against Wolves but were very unlucky against Leicester who equalised with a deflected shot that was going wide.

United will have to defend better and produce more consistent performances to go on another run like we are currently.

Can't stand Pogba, turns up when he feels like it. Put himself about physically last night for the 1st time, lets hope his form can continue until the end of the season.

Its some run from United with 29 points from the last available 33, don't think any red seen this coming so going to really enjoy this week. I have no idea how this season pans out for United, we could drop plenty of points this month and be well out of it come the start of Feb. Keeping Bailly fit is going to be so important, if Lindelof had played centre half the last 4 league game I doubt we'd have 10 points. If I were Ole I'd be trying to bring someone in this month even if it was a winger on loan, we're desperate for a genuine wide player.

Hope Ole can keep proving me wrong.

So where schools are taking in children and half the kids are at home being home schooled or doing lessons online, will the children in school be in a better position educational wise, for being taught in class?

I doubt it, my 6 year old is getting a lot more one on one teaching then she would in the classroom and is certainly getting a lot more work done.

Totally different to the 1st lockdown, mine are getting way more work and support from the School. My 6 year old has 30 in her class, currently 14 of them are in as they have parents are key workers which is a complete joke. The teacher is a mate of mine and said his workload has increased considerably due to this. Its very time consuming for us as I think there doing more at home then they'd be doing in School and both struggling to get on with our own work.

Another mate is working from home, 1st lockdown he reckoned his workload was reduced by 65% but this time round its increased by 30%. He's desperate to get back to school.

He's not really telling any lies. United have something like 1 in 2 games in all competitions under Ole. Scary.

The one at the weekend just shows all that is wrong with football at minute.

It was a clear penalty, the new footage from another angle which the VAR official had access showed that Pogba had been fouled.

Such nonsense, just because Pogba brushed the defenders leg before he tripped himself doesn't make it a penalty. It was  an awful decision

You've clearly not seen the angle which VAR had access too and that the reason the ref wasn't told to go look at it again. It's a clear pen.
feel free to post the link.
Ive seen it from several angles and non of them are a pen


Presume itís this one:

Can't seem to find a figure of how many in the UK have had the vaccine so far, anyone know? It was 940,000 as of the 27th of December.

26 points from 17 games with that squad is pathetic, if he wasn't a Chelsea legend he'd have been sacked this morning.

City back training and no new cases, the plot thickens.

4 points a fair reflection from xmas so far, should have beaten Leicester with the chances we missed; Nothing beats an injury time winner even more so given it was undeserved.

I really hope I'm proved wrong with Ole but United have to improve at home and start to create more chances if we're to continue winning games. I don't think United pressed Wolves as much as they should have done last night but its clearly going to be easier to do that with Fred/McTominay in the middle as opposed to Matic/Pogba. I think its clear United need more work on the training ground to work on it but with so many matches its going to be difficult to get the time he needs.

Shaw has upped his game since Telles came in and Bailly has done well the last 3 games, there's a decent player in there if he could just stay fit but his next injury is probably only weeks away; I saw a stat earlier that Bailly & Maguire have 8 clean sheets from the last 11 games they've played together.

Another tough game against Villa who's away from has been brilliant, they've taken 16 points from 21 on the road. Villa will have had an extra days rest but don't have the depth of quality in squad to make that many changes, hope United start Fred, McTominay, VDB & Martial.

Chelsea have won 7 matches in the league so far against the teams placed 10th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 16th, 17th & 20th in the league. The only win recently was against West Ham and they were very lucky to win that too, they didn't play well.

He should be getting hammered in the media, with the squad he inherited and money he's spent he should be top of the league given how many points Liverpool have.
