hi Steve

I was not and I am not underestimating Liverpool, I was just trying to advise you not to get too confident so soon in the season.

I am aware in the difference which Liverpool played against PSG and in no way compared it to United;s performance.

I said in my earlier post that we are not good enough to take on top European teams -including Liverpool at this moment. In fact I think they will have to improve vastly if the want to finish in the top 6 in the Premiere League.

I hope I am wrong.

Cheers

Mike - heading off to Wales early tomorrow. Good luck for the up-and-coming games.

Hi Steve

We have been away in North Yorkshire for a while. Don't use the internet while I am away. Back for a couple of days and then off to North Wales .

I have been able to watch some of the games in pubs etc while away.

Liverpool have looked unbeatable until the wobbled a bit the other night. It was a surprise because the defence has looked so solid.
but Firmino saved some red faces and earned The Pool a deserved win.

I have watched Man United. They have managed to recover from a terrible start and have won the last three games away from home, including a good win last night over Young Boys of Berne. United were overrun on the plastic surface in the first quarter of the game but gradually improved and won relatively easily in the end.

I don't think we are any way near to hitting the standard that we United supporters expect. The defence is disorganised and the attack very wasteful in front of goal. There does not appear to be very much endeavour in the team yet.


I would not bang the drum too much about Liverpool Steve, they have done nothing yet They have collapsed in mid-season too many times recently and have not won anything of note for about a dozen years.

Man City got a shock last night but I didn't see the game. So there is many a slip twixed cup and lip.

Looks like being an interesting season I am looking forward to it.

See Ya

Mike

No way, Mike. You're heading for the bottom half and you know it. Unless you get rid of the Unspecial One very quickly indeed. That second-half defensive display was a farce. And Pogba was bloody useless. On top of that, Spurs were denied a cast-iron penalty in the first half. You need shot of Phil Jones.

Hi

I went to Old Trafford last night to watch United Play Spurs.

The were well beaten 0-3 in an interesting but not exciting clash.

United had the best of the first half and managed to miss some scoring opportunities, especially Lucacu whom seems to have lost his shooting boots.

The second half with a different Tottenham team do most of the attacking. The inevitable happened when Kane scored. After that it was all Spurs and they ran out easy winners.

This is the worst start to the season that United have ever had since 1962. But perhaps we needn't worry because they went on to win the League. ( Fingers crossed in hope rather than expectation.

Do you think that because I am a Man United supporter I am biassed in my views of Liverpool and Man City,??

I am not. love football no matter who is playing. I try to be objective about all the games I see.

Obviously at times my views differ from others' but I try to be fair.

Naturally I want United to be successful again. We are miles behind Liverpool and Man City and others too. I try to give credit where it is due.

We are playing Burnley this week. Burnley are one of the clubs I admire. I wish them well even though they are playing us,

Cheers

Yebbut you're a Man U man, so...

Salah was definitely clipped for the sending off - the only slight doubt is that he just MAY have been letting the ball run a bit too far ahead of him. But it was a clear foul, no messing, and the defender was not going for the ball. I've watched the replay Gawd knows how many times. The ref made the right call and had no option.

Hi Steve

Strange how two people watching the same game see things differently.

I thought that there was some doubt about Salah going down as did most of the guys in the pub.

However if the ref saw it as a foul then he was right to send him off.
The problem is that the referees are not consistent. For this incident some refs would have not given a penalty. But the referee can only give what he sees. Maybe The Premier League should install VAR ??

I thought the ref had a particularly good game, actually. The penalty was a definite foul, no doubt about that, and the sending-off was obligatory within the rules. The only thing I saw Liverpool getting away with was Andros thumping one against the crossbar. A decisive moment.

Hi Steve

Crystal Palace under Roy Hodgson are a difficult side - especially at home. Liverpool got away with a couple of decisions but as you say won dirty. All teams have to do it sometimes.

Unless United buck up you could be right about them struggling to get in the top ten. Nearly all the teams have strengthened their sides and other than Huddersfield and Cardiff any side can beat any other side.

I don't see Liverpool topping Man City but we will watch with interest.

Palace are a tough bunch of buggers and I reckon they'll easily finish in the top half this season. Liverpool showed at last that they can win dirty. Three bloody good points from the match: Virgil was magisterial, Allison was not only a great stopper but is also a very cool and accurate distributor, and there was absolutely none of that mid-match flakiness that Liverpool demonstrated too often last season. It's between Liverpool and City this season. United won't finish in the top eight.

We could do worse than to offer the manager job to Ryan Giggs. At least he will have them playing " the United way.

It's devastating to hear that Jimmy Mac has passed on. He was a true gentleman of football, as fine an inside forward who ever graced a football pitch, and, above all, my boyhood hero. Where were you on the evening of March 7 1961, you may ask? Well I was at Turf Moor, nine years old, watching Burnley beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 in a quarter-final FA Cup replay. It was a brilliant football match and Jimmy played a massive part. That night made me everything wot I am!

" "You've gone strangely quiet, Mike," goaded Steve...   :-) "

Thanks for missing my absence. I have been away for the Bank Holiday week-end. I don't do any postings when I am away from home. I leave all that until I return.

Anyway noe that I am back I will agree with most of you comments. I did get to watch United in a pub in Llandudno. I agree that it was a shambles ;they played as though they did not know each other and did not care about doing so. Something will have to be done. First thing should be to get rid of Pogba. Then Mourinho should get his marching orders. At the moment there is no coverage of Man United, just loads of s**t about Pogba and Mourinho,

The way we are playing we won't even finish in the top 10, !!!

I don't follow much football, Raggy but I think the difference is that Liverpool look like a club that's moving forwards with a progressive and refreshing manager.

Man U don't look to be going anywhere and I don't know what's happened to Mourinho. Always full of himself but I used to find a likeable side. But since the last time at Chelsea, he seems (to me) to have turned more "bitter old man" and more interested in carping than building a team that would produce their best.

OK maybe the end of season will produce a different outcome but that's how I see things at the moment.

I agree. We are completely disorganised at the moment. What a F*** up with the transfers.!!!

We were lucky to get away with it against Leicester. The Pogba/Mourinho saga is wrecking the club. We should do something about it. I have a feeling that one or the other ....or both will be fired very shortly.

In contrast Liverpool are very organised under Klopp. They have strengthed the team and wiped the floor with West Ham.

It's going to be a long season for us.

Gilmore you are right. I am not a soccer fan. Many non fans take an interest in the World Cup.
David, I have noticed that many fans embrace the concept of "we" when talking of their club, even though they do not "take part."

As Mike said, England only got as far as it did because of an easy draw.
It was unable to beat teams from very small countries like Croatia and Belgium, and last time was knocked out by Iceland!

I would call that a humiliating defeat for a large country with a huge soccer industry, but as Mike said we fielded a young team who might fare better next time.

Hi Keith

Like others I never felt humiliated. England had a very good draw by only having to play...shall we say moderate opposition. So we qualified for the finals easily.

Gareth Southgate opted to select a very young squad because the more experience players were not up to standard.

We got to the semi finals, in doing so we got further than the likes of Brazil, Argentina,Spain etc.

We have a host of younger players coming along in the Under 17 and Under 21 Teams. So the future at this stage looks bright.
"
Money may be a factor but by no means does it guarantee "buying" The World Cup.

Think back to this year.....Croatia got to the final and could have won it but for a brilliant performance by France. I don't know what the financial position is with Croatia but would think it small compared with the more well known teams.

Football is a sport and one of the wonderful things about it is that you can't guarantee success.

That is indeed a bit extreme, firstly what is your concept of "we". I didn't take part, and I suspect neither did you. I don't feel ownership of a team just because it happens to have the same nationality as me. Secondly, and accepting that by "we" you mean the England football team, getting to the semi-final of a major competition is hardly being humiliated. Its just not quite being the best.

Hi Keith

There is no doubt that English clubs higher wages than almost all foreign clubs.

I was surprised to see only this week that Barcelona do not pay top money.



Foreign players flocked to England so much that in 2005 Arsenal played a full team of foreign players. More recently Chelsea have played 8 players.

Belgium have invested huge sums of money into sport. The result is that Belgium are progressing to be one of the leading sporting Countries.

Money is the key. Charles and Law were paid more in Italy than they would have been in England, Wales or Scotland. Now its the other way round.
