Hi Steve

I went to Old Trafford fot the Huddersfield game. Got a ticket at the last minute.

Yes United are playing a much better style since Qle came. Pogba played as if he was interested and after 3 assists in the previous game he scorred two great goaals. I hope Ole can keep him happy because when he tries he is an outstanding player, Maybe Lucacou and Sanchez can follow suit.
Mind you the way that Rashford, Martial and Lingard are gelling they will struggle to get a game.

The defence needs stiffening though before we can be confident. How about letting us have Virgil.....lol ???

Cheers

Mike

Thank you Mike. Yes, 3-3, and last-minute goals (seems to be Norwich's habit lately)
He had an absolutely brilliant time. Was seated between two slightly older couples who were very kind and friendly and he was on his feet most of the time, yelling and shouting (he was a bit hoarse when he got home!)

He found a good place to park the car and walk to the stadium.

He also met a friend of ours, a Gambian chap, who was an acting extra security guard (he normally works at the Airport) He hugged him and they were delighted to see each other.
It was a good match with six goals to watch wasn't it?
I reckon he'll be going again very soon. He really loved it.

Just watched 3 great games this afternoon.

1. Rangers v St Johstone. good lively game . the Saints were on top for most of the game but Rangers won in the very last minute,

Villa V Leeds. Villa took the first half 2-0 but Leeds cut it back to 2-2 and won the game with the last kick of the ball to take them to the top of the League.......sorry Sen.

Everton v Spurs

An open high scoring game with the toffees taking an early lead. It was short-lived as the Everton keeper making another howler allowing the persistent Son to score in an open net.

Spurs then overran a plucky Everton side to run out 6-2 winners to only one point behind Chelsea. Dark Horses ???

Hi Steve

These days I only need a brush and polish !!!

My hairdresser is the daughter of a well known Man City and England player. - some years back mind.

Believe it or not she supports United ??

Yes Liverpool's win over Wolves was hard earned but they look capable of winning the League to me..

Our first game under Ole was a big change for us. We were actually pressing and tackling for the ball. Cardiff were very physical and the ref didn't seem to bother. Rashford was kicked all over the field and
then the ref gave a dubious penalty against the poor guy.

The game was Very good for us but we must keep our heads. Cardiff were not a big test for them but it helped us to get a good start under Ole
Our defence is not good enough to play with the big boys.

Have a great time over the holiday.

All the best.

Hi Steve

I believe that Pogba is a destructive influence to the other players, regardless of his being a member of the France World Cup Team.

Your other points I agree with. Mourinho was not the right type of manager for the likes of Rashford and Martial....and others, Lingard etc.

How the new "regime will progress we will have to wait and see. I think Mike Phelan will be a valuable asset to Ole as indeed will Michael Carrick.

Can't agree about Pogba, Mike. He could thrive under a less repressive manager. He did win the World Cup for France, lest we forget. A good gaffer could also bring out the best in Martial and Rashford, who have been very badly served by Mourinho. But I hope that Poch stays at Spurs. After all the good he's done it would be miserable to see him leave. Make Zinedine The Twat your target man!

Hi Raggy

I think most intelligent supporters know that they have a huge task on their hands.

I think that what they want is to see United start to fight back and show the attacking philosophy that used to be in United;s DNA.

ole Solskjaer has accepted the Caretaker job with an immediate start.
He will have Mike Phelan, Fergie's old right hand man as his partner, and Michael Carrick to help where necessary.There will be a wealth of knowledge of the Club and how they want them to play. And the Club know what they want and will put money into the project.

Solskjaer has something to prove as his only management job in the Premiere League ended up with Cardiff City going down and he got the sack.

This is different though Cardiff were a very poor side and the Club had no money.

I agree that Pogba should go and with him Sanchez if he does'nt start to earn his huge wages and cost to the Club.

It could be interesting.....we wait with baited breath


Cheers

Hi Raggy
Completely agree with you. Jose just had to go. He does so with 18 million smackers in his pocket.

In a ironic way Liverpool did us a favour !! They demonstrated to all just how low United have fallen.

The rumours will start who will succeed him. At the moment the view of some is that they will appoint a stand - in manager. Somebody who understands United and what the require. Ole solskjier (sic) has been mentioned. I would prefer Ryan Giggs to work with Michael Carrick to start the re-building. We need a person(s) who can get back to creating    a youth policy as well as re-juvenating the Premier League side.

It won't be quick, there is a lot to do but like most supporters I don't expect miracles.

I don't normally relish anyone being sacked, however he will have a nice pay off (18 million was one figure I heard) so he'll not starve.

Hi Steve

Liverpool 3 v Manchester United. 1

I was unfortunate enough to watch this game as I was embarrassed by such a weak and cowardly performance by a United side that hadn't a
clue how to handle a vibrant Liverpool team that knew exactly what it was doing as it tore United to threads.

United were a disgrace, they could not even pass the ball to each other. they didn't/couldn't tackle and meekly watched Liverpool run rings round them.

In contrast Liverpool were dynamic and had a plan and played to it. If it hadn't been for being wayward in front of goal it could have been a cricket score. The statistics tell the story Liverpool had 40 shots at goal - United had 2.........one of which was a mistake by the goalkeeper.

I don't mean to take anything from Liverpool's display they are light years away in front of United.

Surely the Old Trafford Board must do something very quickly. They need to get rid of Mourinho, Pogba and Sanchez. There are about a dozen more that are frankly not good enough and must go soon.

We know it won't be quick and won't be easy. The youth team could put up a better performance.

To sum up....While I was in the shop getting a paper. two guys were discussing the game. One said to the the other " They have drawn Paris S G they won't be long in there. The other guy said They've got to play Reading in the FA cup !!!!! nuff said.

Hi Rusty

I watched that match and was very impressed by Southampton's performance. They looked easily like teams much higher in the league. They had pace, goal scorers ( for once) and they attacked and defended well. I know about their patchy performances but maybe this will encourage both players and the well deserving supporters who were magnificent.

All the best to you and your team -

I watched it and maybe it was to be expected with 8 changes but we performed like a group of people who had never met before. No organisation of the defence no apparent plan how to play the game.

The team they were playing were made to look like World beaters when in fact they are a very average side in the Spanish League.

Yes a good game to watch. The winner was in doubt to the very end.

Yes Liverpool were the better team; especially in the second half when Napoli had to open up. This suited Liverpool and but for some very wayward finishing they could ( should ) have scored six. That great save at the end saved them and Napoli's last chance was netted but offside...phew!!!

Well done I really enjoyed it,

We also have been on the tour round the ground several times as our children and grand/great children grew up. We were always delighted by the way they they entertain visitors.

I was there last Saturday to see them demolish Fulham. No great deal as Fulham are struggling at the bottom of the League. But at this stage will will take what we can. There was more oeganisation and purpose in this display but we have a way to go to scramble into top four.

I will be watching for Norwich and their march to the top.

He's been to Carrow Road before many years ago, when his lovely driving instructor, who was very fond of him, offered to take him to a match as a treat along with his son. He was so thrilled. Wasn't that kind?

And he went on an Easton's bus trip alone all the way to Manchester to Old Trafford, and gazed at the actual ground where all his idols played. He was allowed to put one foot on the turf! And to go into the changing rooms, where a shirt with Rooney's name printed on it was hanging up on a peg. (staged of course)

I've just talked to my parents Sen. Their original season ticket seating when they moved here was in the Barklay Stand which is the (how do you put it) "traditional main home supporters end?" but when dad started finding it harder to get to the ground (and I think they also switched to using a coach service that was met by some sort of shuttle buggy thing to the ground), they switched to the South (/Jarrold) Stand and I'd guess not too far off where your husband will be. Their only complaint seems to be that it was a touch stuffy in attitude compared to the Barklay.

As far as I understand it, the "Snake Pit" is the corner between the Barclay Stand and the Geoffry Watling Stand. I believe it to be an area favoured by some of the more (shall I say) raucous Norwich City supporters.

Away supporters are in the part of the South Stand which is the other side of the Barklay stand.

Our neighbour was asking me about the ticket I've got for the Boxing Day match against Nottingham Forest. He said NOT to get one in the Snake Pit, where the opposing team's supporters sit, which is in the South Stand.
So I've just had a look at the actual ticket, and it says South Stand. Gulp!
But at the other end to the Snake Pit. And looking at the plan of Carrow Road stadium, the sign for 'away supporters' only goes along the first few areas. My husband's ticket is in area M, more or less at the other end to the Snake Pit. And printed on the ticket is 'Home Supporters Only'.
I just hope he's not placed all alone in among a mob of Nottingham supporters, who might also be racist.
He says he doesn't mind one bit, and will simply enjoy the game.
Do you think this will be all right for him?

Fabulous day. Liverpool cruised past Bournemouth at Bournemouth, an inspired performance and a hat-trick from Mo. I've tried my damnedest to persuade meself that his first goal wasn't offside and I've scoured the rules of the game. But I gotta be honest. He was a tad offside. Then Man Citeh were beaten by Chelski which means that we're on top, and the goal difference has been slashed by six. I believe Manure had a good day but I'll have to wait until MOTD comes on. Grand!

Hi Steve et al.

I watched Man United v Arsenal lat night. I recorded the other games and have only just dug them out.

United's game was exciting but not particularly skillful. United made 7 changes to the side mainly to the defence. Pogba was left on the bench ans wasn't missed. !!!

Both teams attacked but both defences blocked out each other for much of the game.

United came from behind twice to get a 2-2 draw. It was better than some of \united' recent games. Holding a team that has not lost in it's last 15 games is an improvement that we can build on. It was sometimes comical as all four goals were mistakes by the defences. But we were happy to see some organization and hard work being put in.

Cheers

Mike

Not good enough to make the top four.
