Hi Steve

I think it very doubtful that you will come to Old Trafford. Unfortunately this Octogenarian will be traveling too far from my TV.
BUT then again you just never know. Just had Sky Sports put on my BT box. Great, now I can get all the game regardless of which channel are covering the top games.

Cheers

Hi Steve

" I know that footie invites tribalism but that's all part of the fun as long as it doesn't get too serious.".

Very true. While I am naturally biased towards Man United, I am not too serious about it - disappointed sometimes, especially this Season..
As you say it's the game that counts. If we were see you at a Liverpool v Man United game, and Liverpool were to win, I would always shake hands and buy you a beer.

Hi Steve

I agree with what you say. I wonder if you would have taken that view if it happened the other way round. I suspect that your view would have been the opposite.

The thing about the rolling ball is that the view was that the referee had stopped the game as he decided whether it was a goal or not.

But you are right it all goes to make the game exciting and interesting.

The Fulham "goal" was correctly called offside, as every replay showed. Free kicks are taken rapidly like that all the time and are allowed at the referee's discretion. Whether the ball was still rolling or not (if it was, it was moving at less than snail's pace) comes into the realms of things like players not standing exactly ten yards away, players pinching five yards at free kicks or throw-ins, goalies moving off their line before the penalty kick is taken (which they routinely do) and dodgy body contact. It's a game played by human beings refereed by human beings and that's part of the beauty of it. Had Salah not scored no-one would be talking about the free kick. The fact is that Fulham were caught napping, a disgrace when none other than Mo was running free down the flank.

Hi

Busy day with football 3 top games in TV.

Liverpool 2-v-0 Fulham....Not a great game to watch. Liverpool , by their own standards were unimpressive against the bottom team in the League. There was a controversial element in Lioverpol's first goal when Fulham scored what looked like a good goal only for it to be turned down by the Referee. In the turmoil around the goal Liverpool's keeper took the free kick ( while the ball was moving ??) allowing Salah to break away and score. In an innocuous rest of the game Liverpool scored again and ran out easy winners.

Chelsea 0 v Everton o Good game with underdogs holding Chelsea to a no score draw. Chelsea missed a penalty and wasted a couple of chances. Everton managed to prevent Chelsea from scoring and were good value for the draw

Man City 3 v Man united 1.

United were very poor and were completely overwhelmed by a good City display.United were dissorganised and City played with them. United will need t0 improve or things will get serious. Very dissapointing performance in a match against their local rivals.

On this form City look like repeating last year's winning of the League.

Cheers

Hi

Well I never !!!! Man united beat Juventus 2-1. This against the team that is favourite to win the Eu Championship. A team that had not been beaten on home ground since 1993.

We played a much different game to what we had being doing previously this season.

Admittedly they had some luck in that Juventus hit a post and then the cross bar. Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for the home team with a fantastic goal. Man U rode their luck and took the game to the hosts but were unable to pierce the defence of the Italian side. Mourinho made some clever substitutions and Mata scored with a great free kick.
On 90 minutes a scrambled scum in the goal area resulted in an own goal to give United the game. They should now be able the qulify for the knock-out phase but they still have something to do.

Great game to watch - let's hope they can continue this form.

Hi

Red Star Serbia 2 - Liverpool 0.

Watched this; Liverpool adopted a recent Man United fault. They started poorly and allowed Red Star to score two goals that were from sloppy play from Liverpool.

After that Red Star went on the defensive and despite lots of possession Liverpool could not break down the defence. They became careless in their attempts to score but all to no avail.

After this their place in the play off places is by no means assured.

Tonight Man United play Juventus in Turin after being mauled at Old Trafford last week.

They will need to play a hell of a sight better if they want to
oo be sure of qualification.

Got everything crossed.

Cheers

Ps Watching United and Juventus Youth sides playing in Europe.
They are playing much better than the Senior team. Current score 1 - 1 in a cracking game.

Hi

Watched Arsenal v Liverpool. It was a cracking game. Both teams attacking all through the game. It was a great game to watch with lots
of incidents and plenty to discuss. Liverpool were unlucky when what looked like a good goal was not allowed by the referee after the linesman waved his flag but then he should have taken it down.

Arsenal played fast moving football and Liverpool replied with some exciting play.

In the circumstances I think that a draw was a fair result.
It is serious up at the top as the loss of two points meant Liverpool dropped two places.

hi

Man UNITED 2 - Bournemouth 1

Just watched this game. This really was a game of two halves. In the first half Bournemouth were all over United whose defence looked full of holes. The midfielders couldn't put 2 passes together. There were no tackles so Bournemouth had the run of the play. No surprise when they went 1 nil up.   United were in total disarray.

Completely against the run of play United equalised. Martial scoring once again.

I don't know what happened over half-time but United came out looking like a different team. Putting Bournemouth under huge pressure and the mid field spraying great passes for the speed of the forwards to run on to. Made a few chances but failed to take them. But in injury time Rashford scored a deserved winner ( just!!).
It was an entertaining game with the result in doubt right up to the last second.

I just wish the could play a whole game like this. We can't afford to keep giving away cheap goals.

Now going to watch Arsenal v Liverpool. This should be a great game and I am looking forward to it.

Cheers

hi Steve ,

fancy you playing down a Man performance !!

The penalty IMHO a close one. The defender did get the ball but then with his other leg brought down Martial and prevented him from going for the ball.

I agree with your Pogba comments....he was also guilty of pissing about that caused the Everton penalty. With any luck he will go tp Juventus.
Pity about his attitude but he is a great footballer when he wants to be.

Yes City v Spurs should be a good game but I would have to tale City to win,

But the penalty that Pogba spectacularly fluffed, then got the luck of gods with the rebound, simply wasn't a penalty. The defender clearly went for the ball and got the ball (the replays show the ball changing direction as he made contact). Martial then did the theatricals. Jon Moss didn't have a good view. He's a good ref is Jon but he has a penchant for making occasional fearful cockups, and this was one of 'em. Mark Clattenburg agrees with me (actually, I agreed with him). Viewing the match as a whole I'd say the teams were evenly matched and that Man U didn't deserve all the points. Everton were unlucky. Pickford's totally brilliant, and he's a nice bloke to boot.

At the gathering in Radcliffe after my dad's funeral last week, among others there was me (Liverpool), me Mancunian cousin (Man City) and his younger brother (Man U). It made for an entertaining and animated discussion! They both wanted Salah. Of course they did. I wanted De Bruyne (naturally). Nobody wanted Pogba. Heheh!

Anyway, there's a far more important match on tonight!

Man U gave a much improved performance on last week ( but the still have a hell of a way to go).

They moved forward most of the time and looked a far better team on the odd occasions they were attacked. They were the better team and deserved to win but did make it difficult for themselves at the end.

Despite all the problems they are only 4 points off the top four.!!

Hi Steve
Watched Yesterday's game. Not up to Pool's high standard but easy enough to see off a poor team in Cardiff....though they tried hard.

The salah /Mane link was much to good for Cardiff. Salah and Mane feasted on the support from the defence.

I think Liverpool are going to take some stopping.

Now for Man United v Everton. It is very rare for United to be behind Everton in the League when they play each other. Such is the state of United's situation. A loss today could be the end of Mourinho.

Fingers crossed......you can work that out for yourself !!!

Hi Steve

Great show indeed. Red Star were no pushovers. The went at Liverpool from the start and looked as though they would create some problems.
They took the first 20 minutes with a physical display but gradually Liverpool started to fight back after riding a storm.

The defence conducted by Van Dyjk stated to drive Red Star back with some fine attacking from the back. Soon the inevitable happened and
when Shaqiri made a goal, well taken by Firmino they just rolled over the opposition and won easily taking them to the top of their Group.

For me Van Dyjk was the man of the match as he calmly encouraged his young defender to drive forward and put Red Star on the back foot.

I agree with you about Shqiri - great game - what a great deal.

Hi Steve

Your description of last night's game was on the ball. United slow and sluggish and juventus slick and organised.
The amazing thing was that united only lost 0-1 it should have been a lot more.

We have been to Madeira several times. Once while we were there we went to watch a schools athletics day up above Funcial. Towards the end the Funcial football team came out and had a training session. We stayed and watched some of it. My wife took some pictures. Acouple of years later Cristiano joined Man United. One later I was doing some processing on some pictures and when I looked my wife had taken some greay shots with Ronaldo on them. When she took them we and the World at large had never heard of him. That soon changed, arguably he has become one of the best players in the World.

We went to Madeira last year and came across the bronze statue of Cristiano Ronaldo on the wide Funchal promenade. He was born and bred in lovely Funchal. It isn't exactly the world's greatest work of of art, but the inscription at the bottom describes him as the greatest footballer in the world. He's a bit of a tit is Cristiano, but he is a damn fine footballer. The bronze of the statue has the usual tarnish - except for the deliberately-prominent "family jewels" region, which has a high sheen. I'm guessing that a thousand young women have posed next to the statue for a photo and inadvertently given yer man's testicles a damned good manual polishing...

Or even young men. Damn.

Should be a good game, I am not confident about United at the moment
they are inconsistent ( to say the least) but hope they can hit their best form.

Looks like a night of two Portuguese, in Mourinho and returning prodigal son Chistiano Ronaldo.

Unfortunately there will probably more interest in these two than will go on the match. Such is the power and interests of the media.

I'll say it again: Liverpool haven't got an effective attacking midfield playmaker at the moment. The defence is very solid, though I think Lovren has had his day. The Gomez/ Virgil pairing is superb and I think that Joe is going to be an England star for many years. Jürgen will either have to groom one of his rather expensive squad (Fabinho doesn't seem to be in favour and Keita is all over the place) or delve into the transfer market. But, for chrissake, we are joint top and we are going to stay there! I thought that Shakiri was an utter menace at times yesterday (tho' definitely a bit on-and-off) and there's a lot of potential there.

Hi Steve

Watched United and then Liverpool yesterday.

United did their usual start and gave a sloppy goal away and let Chelsea take command. Second half and the other United turned up. They pressed Chelsea and exposed weaknesses in the Chelsea defence. The result was panic for Chelsea while Martial helped himself to a couple of good goals. They continued to threaten more but then in the 6th Minute of injury time the defence went to sleep and gave away another sloppy goal. United deserved to win but must sort that defence out.

In the Liverpool game they were given a fright after Salah recovered his goal scoring form. They were pressed by Huddersfield who were unlucky with at least two decisons going against them. Liverpool are having to win ugly to get results. Just like united had to do over last two years under Mourinho.

Clopp says that tightening his defence has affected his attacking force, You don't have to be a genious to work that out.

All in all an interesting afternoon of football.

Defence was paramount because of the attacking instincts of both teams. In this game defence won out. Basically because both teams have bloody good defences. Here's a big clue: the score was 0-0. What Liverpool currently lack is a midfield playmaker. Coutinho has gone and Ox won't be back this season. Just watch Jurgen in the next transfer window...

Hi Steve

I must have been at the same match as Raggy. I watched a determined game in which two very good teams had decided to not lose.

Consequently we had a rugged game where defence was paramount. Neither goalkeeper didn't have to make a save. Salah hardly ever touched the ball.

A missed penalty - apparently PeP changed a preagreed action to change his Penalty taker as he picked up the ball !! this saved Liverpool and the match just then fizzled out into a tame draw.

Liverpool by the way have not won in their last 4 outings !!!.

Hi

I am back from holiday and I don't use the media at all while I am away.

Some of the results did filter through from other holidaymakers so I am am aware of the difficulties of our top sides in Europe.

Apart from Arsenal who have improved after a desperate start.

Ironically Man United remain unbeaten despite some terrible performances!!!

I watched United'd match yesterday when after a diabolical start 0-2, they managed to scramble through to win 3-2 in " Fergie Time".

We need a new defence NOW. Ironic cos last year we were only 1 goal against than the runaway winners of the League Man City.!!

Like many United supporters I don't have any faith in them at the moment.

Can Mourinho create a change of fortune ??? Don't think so. Drastic changes need to be made.

Getting ready to watch City and Liverpool....should be a good match to watch.

It was a poor do, for sure. Napoli's manager, Carlo Ancelotti, worked out from their pre-season loss to Liverpool in a friendly how to neutralise Liverpool's front three with an extra central defender. Salah hardly touched the hall before half-time and Firmino was anonymous all night. Carlo is a brilliant tactician and just for once Klopp was outfoxed. Let's see if Pep can do the same trick on Sunday...

I thought Utd were bad last night, at least they managed a very poor draw.

This thread's gone a bit quiet. Are people on holiday? Anyway, Liverpool still look good but vulnerable, while Manchester United continue to stumble along. Interesting times.

I acknowledge Man Utd are not the force they were and with Mourinho as manager I doubt they will get back to the top any time soon. (Never could take to the man)

However, you play Chelsea away in your next league match, away, and they will not be frightened after that lack lustre display.

Just as a reminder, though we did have over twenty years of consistent sucess.

Don't start gloating too soon Steve, yes United might be a spent force at the moment but Liverpool haven't won anything yet.

Oh, remind me just when did you last win the premiership?
