The Doc and his young team were my formative United years, I absolutely worshipped them... He was a fiery, colourful character I often wonder what path United would have taken had he not been sacked

Well he certainly didnít help himself on the sacking! Colourful manager and period when I also started to show interest
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

3 match suspension for Cavani. Only misses one league match though so not too bad. Given the context it is all a bit OTT.
Well, after all, the football authorities have the prerogative to belatedly eavesdrop into a conversation conducted in a foreign language in the context of a "foreign" culture and  proportion guilt of extreme offense to a statement made by Cavani that was never intended to offend, but only made to  acknowledge praise with charm. Sometimes the ugly perceived, is in the eyes of the beholder

A hard earned and deserved win for United. Finally showing a bit of consistency at home. Villa a well organised side in good form and United needed a number of good individuals performances in order to win and they got that in the likes of Pogba, Wan-Bissaka and Bailly tonight.

That's a good Villa side and a good 3 points

I don't watch a lot of Utd, but any time I've seen Wan-Bissaka, I've thought he's looked good.  But people here don't seem to rate him.  What's the issue, is it just inconsistency or what?

In fairness to AWB he got an assist and made a brilliant clearance but he was at fault for the villa goal. He is often out of position and prob gets no assistance from his central defensive teammates they all lookout of place at times. Brilliant tackler poor going fwd though. Another right back in jan would help for the season.

Not sure anyone who's opinion matters doesn't rate AWB? He might not get many assists like Robertson or Walker but he is the best defensive FB in the premier league at present

I probably wouldn't notice someone being out of position unless it was really egregious (what's the keeper doing over by the corner flag?), but Pat'sabu's comment is consistent with my impression of Wan-Bissaka from the 5 or 6 games I've seen him in.

In terms of tackling and being a pure defensive FB he is pretty good but he offers very little going forward. Physically he is a very good player but I donít think he is the smartest footballer. The sort of player who will do A repeatedly until you tell him to do B.

Big win for United and certainly they must be favourites for the title now given the injuries in Anfield. The game in a few weeks will really be the Ďmomentumí game

I know you jest about the favourite tag but all joking aside City are in a good position. If they win there 2 games at hand they are only a point behind Liverpool and Utd. All to play for.

Only half joking. I genuinely think that United could go the whole way. LFC decimated by injuries. City not quite firing but could pull it together. Itís there for anyone who wants to make a run at it and United have the tradition. The only thing is they are liable to have a run of shit results as easily as a run of good ones and if Fernandes losses form youíre  fucked

Uniteds main objective from this season is trying to finish in the top 4 for two seasons in a row, something that hasn't been done since Ferguson retired. Only 16 games played in this season and just 4 points ahead of 5th so plenty of work to reach that objective yet.

Come April, May it remains to be seen if Liverpool will have any challenger still chasing them as I still have my doubts on Man City to suddenly find their consistency of two seasons ago.

United have actually been pretty consistent in the league, from a point gaining perspective, over the past year in the league. Saw a 'table' the other day showing the standings of the PL teams since Fernandes joined United. Over the 30 odd games, United were top.
