2-0 down with 30 minutes left and your fans start heading for the exits? Hope Sunderland are relegated.

Never understood that..even if losing support your team!

Went Chelsea once and a lot left before the end where we were losing and yet ending up winning..

I personally don't see it like that now. If we lose today City would possibly only 5 points behind us.. Need to beat West Ham but I am very nervous.

there are certain teams no matter the form in which you are, They are always uncomfortable to play against (west ham). Especially other London teams apart from Arsenal.

Each time we lose to West Ham though, unlike other 'bogey' teams like Tottenham or Everton where we've simply underperformed, there's always a glaring tactical error from the first minute with our set up. Mainly, we don't give their strikers any respect, and let them do whatever they want. Too often do we have our full back marking their tallest striker at a set piece for example.

Good analysis on MNF of Pogba.....If you actually completely disregard the price and focus totally on his performances they have been so poor, and then when you watch him, especially as what was highlighted last night it's completely crazy just how poor the levels he has been playing at barring the odd flashy ball over the top. So factoring the price in now......Fucking insane money, for IMO, a very middle of the road player.

I watched a lot of Juventus the past few years and the problem with Pogba is, is that he just doesn't seem to understand what his role is in the United midfield.
At Juventus, he knew exactly what to do. Conte and Allegri understood him. He looks lost in the United midfield and that's because I truly think Mourinho simply doesn't know what to do with him or what instructions he should give him. He isn't a Mourinho type of player. Mourinho plays with a CAM for the balls to the striker and with a DM for the extra defense in the midfield. Mourinho has no CM's. No hybrids between a CAM and DM.
Also, Juventus overall midfield with the likes of Marchisio, Vidal, Pirlo and Khedira was miles and miles better than this current United midfield.

Another thing is Pogba himself. He looks nervous and uncertain and at times like he can't cope with the tempo of Premier League matches. Also very, VERY nonchalant like Frank says.
Is he overrated? No. Is he overpriced and overhyped: a big, fat yes. 

The whole emoji thing was ridiculous to do and did even put more pressure on him.

3 match ban. 

They actually showed some balls and not only banned the poster boy of the FA's darling club, but also banned him for their own Cup. Wouldn't have been shocked at all if they found some way of excusing him of that elbow saying it was "accidental." :D

Hang on in there Stoke or even better get a winner

 

Incidentally when Sparky was scoring for Barca, Joseph Guardiola was just a ballboy at Camp Nou

Have you seen the first half? If so has it been any big chance for either team? Cheers!
