    We're going to get clobbered by Liverpool but they look very ordinary tonight.

    Enough excuses for this result to not matter one bit.

    Corona probably done Liverpool a huge favour, because the transfer market might be rubbish. So they might be able to squeeze another title or two out while the rest of the teams are useless.

    What a BS VAR decision at the end there. WTF was Foden supposed to do with his falling arm there?! Can't stand the fucking thing.

    Thatís not a VAR problem.
    Thatís the change to the handball rule that says any contact regardless of context is handball.

    But does it matter? I'm not happy but equally I can console myself with the fact in a couple of weeks I get to see the team lift the trophy...

    Some of that spurs defending was unbelievably bad.

    Nice to have the shine taken of Liverpool a bit. Fingers crossed they lose every game ever from here on out.

    Yeah that was probably worse than the spurs one (if the ball did hit the spurs players arm) as with this it really didnt help and give city a massive advantage.

    Still for me, the problem is more to do with the discrepancy in the rule penalizing offensive players but not defensive. But I will repeat, I'd rather the handball was what it was.

    Seen the result, that's a lol.

    Bit of a dangerous game to start phoning it in with seasons being as close together as they are.

    @JYM60 ahhh got you. My bad, I read it as you saying enough of the excuses that it doesnt matter.

    Hands up, sorry!

    In my defense i have had a few strong beers during the match!

    I see JŁrgen Strop was back for the post match interview.

    Full on rambling, heads gone interview.

    I was chatting to someone the other day about how much I rate him and they looked at me like I had just fucked his mum. I had but there was no need for that.

    Just discovered that man utd haven't beaten any of the teams this season that we're playing in the run up to the end of the season apart from Leicester.

    Just goes to show how hard it's going to be for this Man Utd team to get 4th.

    Not confident at all. Must win all games! 😝

    But this is a different MUFC than started the season.... would expect you to pick up some places.


    Fuuuccckkk, positivity towards MU coming from a Liverpool fan. Must be the End of Days! 😀

    With this new handball rule, why does it only apply to attack? If weíre saying benefitting from handball is bad regardless of intent, why doesnít an accidental handball by a defender that benefits them become a foul? Perhaps an indirect free kick would be an appropriate outcome.

    There was a time when new rules were always introduced to try and speed the game up and generally benefit attackers, to make the game more exciting. Feels like recent rules have really gone against this spirit and made the game slower, more boring and with fewer goals.

    It doesn't make any sense, I agree. No idea of the rationale though. They seem to make it up as they go along.

    Not to overhype him, but I wonder how many years it will take Greenwood to overtake Shearer's record.

    He looks absolutely incredible. England have so many top forwards either in the squad or coming through. I'm glad Mason is taking advantage of the game time he's been given.

    De Gea is all over the place. He's starting to revert to the plonker he was in his first couple of seasons.

    Keeps trying to be Allison or Ederson, looks like he wants to prove he can play it on the floor. Just put your fucking foot through it.
