United have played a fair bit more football then Liverpool in recent weeks and United have nothing to play for except for pride; I wouldn't be getting too carried away over analysing last night's performance.

United conceding goals from set pieces continues to be a problem and we all know unless United buy at least 2 top players this summer we're not good enough to mount a realistic challenge for the title.

Glazers or whoever has loads of police and barriers outside the stadium already. No chance of it being called off tonight. Absolutely none.

Depends on whether Liverpool are stopped from getting out of their hotel.

Sounds likes lads are going to try and get the game postponed again!
Wont be a chance in hell that fans get within half a mile of the stadium and team hotels tonight

Yeah you would think the police would be well aware of the situation and have a decent level of security in place. Hopefully the fans recognise this and stay at home. You’d fear if they’re stopped in their tracks that it could turn much nastier than the last time...

Not sure what getting another game postponed would really achieve unless getting points deducted is the end result they are looking to send a message to the Glazers.

That would be a huge result

well if they do it should be Liverpool awarded 3 points and Utd deducted 10. Joke, they made their point and didn't do anything the other night?

6pm kick off on a Tuesday evening is out of a question for a protest, United v Liverpool is 8:15 tonight and the most watched game around the world whilst United Leicester isn't.

Forgot about Mulkerrin, replace him with Johnny Duane in a possible starting 15.
few names missing from that galway team  injuries or not in favour? m daly ,A o laoi Sean andi ,cein d'arcy, Ian burke,varley and E brannigain   
They were ther guys mayo hated to see coming esp Varley who never seemed to play as well against anyone else
has Robert Finnerty applied for a mayo passport
Daly Burke and Varley all opted out of the panel.
The others you named are on the panel - the team
above was just one persons prediction of what a team might look like.
Would disagree with you totally on Varley - he has played well off the bench for us plenty of times not only Mayo. Never really nailed down a starting berth though

Varley did very well when he came on as a sub against Kerry in 2018, from that list of drop outs he's the only one that disappoints me; Michael Daly has never kicked on and Ian Burke has done nothing since 2018. McDaid can't catch a break although he had a shocking first half against Mayo last November.

Cooke coming back is a bonus and lets hope Comer can stay fit but as others have pointed out it remains to be seen whether he can get back to his best. There's not too many counties who can match Galway's underage success the last 5 years but not enough players from those teams have really kicked on especially in the forward line. Galway far too reliant on Walsh & Conroy for scores, that needs to change. Culhane has been outstanding the last 2 years in the 17's and 20's but he's still got this year and next at u20 level. Some of Finnerty, Conneely, O'Laoi, Cunningham and two Costello's have to make an impact.

I know Tesla had sold 10% of their Bitcoin but did they sell the rest?

Ole has to do what's best for Man United and playing his best team after already playing 2 games in the previous 4 days wouldn't have been and even more so considering there's another game in 48 hours.

United would have beaten anyway if they'd played their best team, legs would have been gone after 30 minutes and probably would have picked up several injuries.

Moyes was rumoured to be after him in 2013, such a shame he didn't come then as would have been a United legend; Brilliant all round centre forward.

United took some stick for signing Cavani but he's been some signing, they've got to keep him as United won't be signing Kane or Haaland. He had a dip in form a few months ago and didn't think he looked interested but since then he's been outstanding. There's plenty of big clubs around Europe and the Premier League wondering why they weren't in for him.

Thats a good Chelsea squad, probably got more strength in depth in midfield and attacking areas then City; Their first 11 isn't of the same quality but Lampard seriously under performed with that group.

Arteta another media darling, with the emergence of Saka & Smith Rowe who both look like really top talent that Arsenal squad doesn't look that bad; With no European football and if they can get reasonable fees for all those players they've got out in loan and bring a couple of players in then they've got a squad capable of challenging for top 4. All depends on Kroenke though as Arsenal probably stand to loose £100m this season.

Fining United millions and deducting them 15 points would be fantastic news, a huge win for the protestors.

United fans have had enough, this is not going away.

Andy Cole & Robbo I think are both club ambassadors, heard Cole on Sunday on talksport and sounded like he was rounding on the protestors. Turned it off, Cole is clueless anyway. Schmeichel in a world of his own, not exactly popular with his former team mates either.

I don't see the next buyer of the club loading the club with debt, don't see any major increase in club revenue in the next 5 years. The domestic TV deal will likely stay the same as will gate receipts and doesn't look like there's going to be any big shift in the CL money. They've exhausted all avenues with commercial revenue, probably can increase it slightly if there was more success on the pitch but nothing to the extent that will be particularly attractive to a buyer.  United pays for itself, doesn't need a sugar daddy but the likelihood is next owner will be from that ilk anyway.

I was there on Sunday and hope this is the start of it. The level of ignorance in the media from so called pundits is hard to believe, a couple of minutes research and you could see why United fans are so unhappy.

I'm sure I'll be criticised but Fergie disgusts me with his antics, happy to keep quiet as he's still on the payroll.

I've mentioned this before they bring next to nothing in terms of expertise to the club, their rich kids living of daddy's inheritance. I keep hearing United have spent big money which they did during the LVG/Mourinho ear's but either side of those years its not been good enough, a great side was allowed to break up in 2009 and money which should have been given to Fergie was spent on interest repayments contrary to what Fergie says, the accounts don't lie. OT was once one of Europe's best grounds but its not any more and the training ground which was the best in country is now not even in the top 5 or 6.

They appointment Woodward a man who knows nothing about football along with owners who know even less, clearly this was going to lead to big issues which it did.

There's not exactly man people who can afford to buy the club and 50 + 1 is not remotely a realistic possibility given the value of the club but United are probably the most famous sports organisation can still be bought given Barca/Real are owned by their members so there will be people interested. The Glazers will maintain they have no interest in selling which everyone knows is not true, they'll sell when the time and price is right and that can be brought forward with protests and disruption to the brand and its sponsors as they'd put it.

Kane or Haaland won't be coming to United so its imperative we keep Cavani, he's far too good to be heading back to South America. He was superb last night, probably his best performance since he joined.

I'd like to hear a logical reason why the owners of PL clubs would vote for allowing Celtic/Rangers into the league, there isn't any.
