City don't look a patch on the team that won the PL 2 years ago.

And Man U today, v Brighton and v Palace have been shocking.

I assume that Man City will probably still make the Top 4 but it looks a really tough call for Man U. Taxi for Ole ( should really be Woodward?)

Woodward is crap but the money they’ve spent since Ole has been there is staggering and he’s not done much with it bar one good run end of last season, and they had good players before he got there too, it’s very much on his shoulders imo

While they keep trying to shoehorn the awful, disinterested Pogba into the team, things won't improve anyway.

Another game I wanted them both to lose! Can't stand Manchester United and their entitled non-Manchester fanbase, and any team with the smirking Mourinho is automatically one to dislike.

But having said that, Spurs were so superior it was actually embarrassing at times. Son and Kane are just such a good combination up front. Lamela on the other hand is a twonk.

Strange start to the season with villa now giving Liverpool a tanking at halftime. Loads of goals which makes for entertainment but defending is increasingly a lost art.

How beautiful would it be to see a "grand old club" like Everton, Villa, Leeds making Europe.

Might just spark my interest in Premier League football again. I've not really watched it for the past 10 years.

The smirk Mousinho had seems a long time ago now. He looks like a baggy-eyed, bored grump in the dugout nowadays.

He hated it at Manchester United, living like Alan Partridge in a hotel. He seems more at home at Spurs where he can commute from London but I still don’t think he’s fallen back in love with football again. He does seem like a manager going through the motions.

I’d actually like to see the smirk back again. Whatever you say about his football, a Mourinho wisecracking his dry humour and pissing off the ultra serious types is good fun for the neutral.

Yeah, that shouldn't detract from what they achieved though.

Agreed it doesn't detract from when they won the PL, it just makes them hard to like currently.

Not for me. That wore thin a long long time ago.

Man Utd won't solve their problems by signing more strikers/midfielders. They clearly need another CB and maybe another couple of full backs. If Maguire is of form they are a complete shambles at the back.

Something hookey about both of those results yesterday. I get the feeling that There are a set of very wealthy Asian/Arab businessmen who have just ordered matching gold Rolls Royce’s this morning.

It's a clever Liverpool defender who can be hit by a ball from a few yards and deliberately deflect it with a random part of his body into the bottom corner!
