Good finish but poor defending by Liverpool.
Now there’s a guy who understands what the protests were supposed to be about, he’s the kind of guy who understands  the club and their current plight. He needs to be applauded for standing up to the billionaire owners of his club.
Though to be fair it is possible that some might be sceptical and see a guy who chanced his arm and followed the mob as they broke into the stadium, armed with a football so he could boast to his mates that he played at and scored a goal at Old Trafford.

VAR would have ruled that one out for handball in the buildup to the play  ;D

Billionaire owners aren't always the problem evidently just the American ones..

The Glazers haven't spent one brass farthing of their own on Manchester United and all the transfer funds spent wisely or otherwise was raised my Man U and yet the Glazers take a chunk out of United year after year as well as servicing the huge dept they've accrued on the Stadium.
Parasites are far too strong a word for them.

The FSG crowd at Liverpool aren't much better, just not as brazen.

Apart from the small fact that FSG bought a club that was broke after the previous owners and invested significant cash. The Glazers invested zilch.

Aye that's the thing. It's fairly warped. You've these supporters getting at wealthy owners yet applauding players earning a million a month and totally detached from their fan base, funded by these owners.

Not really sure what these fans want.
They are peddling a misty-eyed Newton Heath narrative when in fact they've just got the wrong sort of billionaire. They are living in the shadow of City and would give anything to have the bottomless pit of cash City have.

City’s owners might have a bottomless pit but it’s not City’s to spend. They can only spend what they generate which is sort of the point. Utd’s revenue stream is one of the biggest in the world and the owners are siphoning it into their own pockets.

City exposed the FFP legal rules to be a house of cards. They can now spend what they want with impunity

Game off because of the riots at Old Trafford.


What would you call it? 

Early this afternoon, groups of protestors began to gather at Old Trafford and separately at The Lowry Hotel, Salford where the United players were staying. By late afternoon around 200 protestors had gathered outside the Lowry and over 1,000 at Old Trafford.

Officers continued to closely monitor the situation, engaging with those present but as the groups grew in size; it became clear that many of those present were not intending to exercise their right to peaceful protest. Flares were let off and bottles thrown at officers.

Protestors outside Old Trafford became especially aggressive and antagonistic towards police before a group of about 100 forced entry to the ground with some United staff having to lock themselves in rooms.

Those in the stadium were evicted by officers but outside on the forecourt hostility grew with bottles and barriers being thrown at officers and horses. Two officers have been injured with one officer being attacked with a bottle and sustaining a significant slash wound to his face, requiring emergency hospital treatment.

With the situation increasing in hostility, additional officers had to be deployed and officers had to be drawn in from neighbouring forces to assist Greater Manchester officers.

Following discussion with The Premier League, Trafford Council and the clubs, a joint decision was made to postpone the match for safety reasons.

GMP Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson said: "The behaviour displayed today by those at both Old Trafford and The Lowry Hotel was reckless and dangerous.

"We understand the passion many supporters have for their team and we fully respect the right for peaceful protest. Plans were in place to ensure this could happen safely, but it soon became clear that many present had no intention of doing so peacefully.

"The actions of those today required us to take officers from front line policing and call in support from neighbouring forces to prevent the disorder getting worse. At different points, bottles and barriers were thrown, officers assaulted and people scaled the stadium structure creating risk for themselves and officers

Not a peep out of you when LFC fans bricked the windows of the Real Madrid coach. Funny that.

I applaud that there was a big protest today.
I applaud that there was presence at Utd hotel.
I applaud that fans got into the ground
I applaud that they got the game called off.

Do I applaud some of the things that occurred, no definitely not. Was it a peaceful protest with trouble around the edges? Or a rabble looking for trouble? I know what I think and I'm happy enough with my opinion

Thankfully no attempted murder of the opposing team and bus driver by bricking the windows as has become the norm down the M62....

Celtic look rudderless atm.  Mcgregor was a dick for going to ground while on a yellow but the first booking would not have been a yellow in any decent league.

Somewhat ironic that Liverpool were saved from a likely tanking today by manutd fans.  On the plus side the rearranged fixture might give united the opportunity to put the final nail in their coffin as regards champs league qualification

United have to get rid of Fred, Matic and Martial.

As for the Liverpool match, got nil nil written all over it.

Liverpool fans absolutely shitting the pants but I'm not sure why? They would bite your arm off for a 0-0 at the minute.

Isn't it so that the new DUP leader will have to gain SF support before taking up the First Minister position?  if so, the chances of that happening are very low and a new election beckons.

SF will approve the appointment. And they should approve it.

This is power sharing. You don’t get to pick who you have to deal with.

Martin McGuiness would have had a thing or to in his past that your average everyday human (unionists included) would have objected to. Imagine the outcry if his appointment as DFM was blocked??

Stay off the drink before posting.

Not a chance if Gavin Robinson. Despite being a barrister he's considered within the party to be a lazy fat useless twat whose intelligence makes up for not having a clue on the detail re any key issues. Another Boris type.

Pep has never lost a cup final
Lost the Copa Del Rey final against Mourinhos Real Madrid in 2011.

Which is why Levy is an imbecile sacking Jose a week before the cup final
Levy could have waited until after that final, Jose past his best however one can't ignore his cup final record

Mediocre final with few clear cut chances. Poorly defended corner in the 82 minute the difference and the goal scorer  Laporte was lucky to avoid a 2nd yellow before he scored.

Yes he prob should have walked alright. Referees always reluctant send players off in showcase finals

Story of the last three months. Messing about, not taking chances.

Just sickening that they get a dodgy VAR reprieve and then blow it anyway.

Very hard to see them making top four now.

Roll on next season!

In fairness UEFA cup has been Liverlools level for the greater part of the last 30 years.....

Arsenal have 3 times as many EPL wins as Liverpool
