        • Absolutely no way he meant that, but it was nice looking.

          • Like the United of old with the late goals.

            • We are now 2 points from 4th place. Arsenel drew.

              We were very lucky in the last game. Shouldn't have been a red card and the second goal was offside. .

              • Looking at it again, Feghouli went in with 2 feet and didn't get the ball... looks more like a red to me now. Going in with 2 feet regardless of winning the ball or not is almost always a red card. In his case, he didn't even win the ball.

                • It should never be a red card and I'll argue that on every fucking incident until I die. How is something a foul if you don't make contact? Should I score a punch in boxing if one boxer attempts a punch and misses? Get out of here.

                  Another of my big issues with refs: when someone dives and falls on the ball and stops play. If I were the ref I would give a yellow for handball every time, but they never do. They always reward the guy falling on the ball and grabbing it with a foul.

                  • There was contact and he didn't get the ball. According to FIFA rules, a "reckless" challenge is usually a red card but what a "reckless" challenge is a very vague term and is very subjective. It was more worthy of a yellow though. Red is harsh but I presume it was given because he went in with both feet in the air for that challenge.

                      Yeah, I've been noticing this for years. Players grab for the ball too much when falling.

                        • Rooney matched Bobby Charlton's record with a goal scored with his right knee. I am glad we won comfortably without Zlatan and Pogba.

                          • 3rd offside goal in a row.

                            We have now won the last 9 games for the first time since 2008/09. If we win against Liverpool, we could be 2 points off them. Things looking good - 4th place is on the horizon. We've already lost too many points this season to win the league but I'm excited about next season.

                            Schneidierlin is going to Everton for 22 m, could rise to 24. He was bought at 24 so it's a good deal considering that he hardly played this season.

                            I had high hopes for him; I still think he was a good player for us. Mourinho never tried to play him; instead playing Fellaini. Carrick is 34 or 35 so I was hoping Schneiderlin would fill his boots. Now it looks like it may be Fellaini. I don't know what he needs to do to convince Mourinho that he is not good enough.

                            • Sweet strike by Rooney. That looked like a flash of old Wayne Rooney brilliance.

                              Stoke yet again extremely lucky to draw. They scored from an extremely fluke own goal and didn't create much other than that.

                              • Oh and of course, not much you can expect when Fellaini is playing. He's not doing anything wrong but he doesn't complement the style of attacking football Mourinho is playing.

                                Very good defensively, good header of the ball and good ball control but doesn't have good enough passing range and slows things down. He breaks the flow.

                                Carrick is slow too but he keeps things going with his excellent passing. I wished Mourinho had tried Schneiderlin more.
