Just a few comments to catch up from when I was last on.

firstly - delighted with the fightback and win on Saturday. Huge credit to Martial who really lit the spark. Lucky not to concede a 3rd several times but glad of the win and a bit of throwing caution to the wind for once. They just decided to go for it....that's what Manchester United are supposed to do. No reaction from the manager to the first goal but subsequently realised it was a good PR opportunity and started acting like he gave a fcuk. Calling over his lieutenent Matic with instructions after the 3rd went in....it's all about you Jose.

I found Neville's comments a bit rich considering his backing of the Glazers previously at the height of the green and gold campaign. Seems he's a company man and of course his current employers want Jose to be kept - he keeps their newsreel full with his bullshit. Rio and Scholes were good after the game.

The Glazers are scum and Woodward is a donkey. However, they (Glazers) were there for several years when Alex Ferguson was there and still winning things. Nothing has changed except they have provided huge sums of money to be invested in the team. Obviously Ferguson was the greatest manager of all time but his successors have had a much more favourable financial regimen to operate under and they've made a complete balls of it. None moreso than the incumbent.

There is no progress to be made without sacking Mourinho. It's over.

  In Fairness to David Moyes, He  only bought 2 players Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata  and Mata was only signed weeks before his departure , Also Moyes wasn't even in charge for a full season ;) Not saying he was the answer but I  think we forget how short his reign was and that didnt spend much ;)

One thing Moyes did do was fail to manage Van Persie who was Player of the Year. He over worked him and consequently was always injured. Moyes was in over his head. A team that won the league by 11 points the season before, failed to qualify for Europe.

His short regin produced long term damage for the club. Took over a side that walked the league the previous season and they were left in 7th confirming the club would miss out on Champions League football for first time since 18 years.  He was given a six year contract at the time highlighting that the board are ran by business that had no clue on football and this season would have been his 6th year and he probably would still be manager today if United had reached the champions league in each season.

Martial is a headless chicken who attempts to beat all in front of him like a 9 year old every time he gets the ball and ends up losing the ball. He gets lucky with that approach once or twice a season.

I wouldn't actually have the gall to take money for Martial, young, Jones or Rojo - all of whom play regularly when fit. I would take humble enough money to shift McTomoney, Lindelof and Darmian and would keep Rashford and Lingard as squad players at a stretch. None of those 9 are good enough to be playing regularly for Manchester United - irrespective of Manager, wages, etc

Strange I find Martial an exceptional finisher who regularly converts chances. Yes his defensive work is lacking but I think if he was played consistently through the middle he’d be superb. I also think Lindgard and McTominay are very good squad players

Josè should be sent to jail for this latest outrage. Swearing at a football match whatever next  :)

Interesting to see what team he goes with tomorrow.

Not holding out much hope of a positive result if the form of the season so far continues.

A point would be seen as a great result tomorrow. Holding hazard wont be too easy though. No point in starting with lukaku the guy has no brain.

Even worse was his reaction trying to blame Lindelof for his own mistake. It’s all about Paul

1-0 and no other chances Chelsea created in that half. Chelsea much quicker on the ball while the likes of Mata,Matic,Lindelof are so slow on the ball. Lukaku, unmarked 10 yards out headed well wide was the only chance United got i think.

Amazingly United in front. 2nd goal for Martial
