      That Fernandes goal is an absolute joke. Rashford 100% interferes with the City defence’s decision making. No way should that have been allowed. Did it actually get reviewed by VAR or was it all handled by the onfield refs?

        The only reason I would pick TAA (as I’m not a fan of his) is because of the back 3 plus Philips and Rice in my lineup there. All of those are very defensively minded and could cover for TAA who can be free to maraud forward

          I’ve rated Toney for a while. Not many weaknesses to his game and will cause havoc for opposition defences. However, I can’t see him ever starting so long as Kane is fit.

          You’d assume Southgate will go for a back three, as he’s obsessed with it. If he does, then I would go with the following lineup:

          Pickford
          Walker – Dier – Stones
          TTA – – – – – – – – Chilwell
          ——– Philips———–
          —–Rice———Foden—
          Kane —- Sterling

            Just seen the Haaland goal, amazing finish and crazy cross! Take a bow Haaland and Cancelo!

              I’m fairly certain the death of the Queen will also be the death of Rodgers. I really saw the Villa game as very winnable and could have bought him time, however now our next game is Spurs away. If he can survive that game he then has Forest and Bournemouth, both very winnable.

                I’m still not convinced by Potter. I don’t think he’s bad but ready for a top top position? I rate Eddie over Potter

                  I’d say this is more about securing an alternative before that person is no longer available otherwise they’d give him more time. Poch must be lined up

                    I’m starting to think that the CL win for Chelsea was more to do with Kante than Tuchel. The last two seasons under Tuchel seems to show no Kante, no Chelsea.

                    As for Philips, I really rate him, he was just blighted with injuries last season. In terms of a move for his career, I really thought Man U would have been a better move for him than City. I think he will play, especially as the fixtures start to rack up and Pep begins his merry-go-round of selections and refreshing his squad.

                      There is no doubt in my mind that Rodgers is trying to get fired so he can get paid out. The comments recently certainly suggests this!
                      I agree with you Nine, I don’t want to see him go as the alternatives won’t be any better. I still maintain that we have a top 10 squad as it stands but if we have a manager who is doing his best to lose games right now in order to prove a point to the board then I think he does have to go. His decisions have been baffling. Nearly every foxes fan has the same opinion about which players he should be picking and yet he goes for players we all wanted gone from the squad. He really is sabotaging the team right now.

                        Just watched the Utd game. Can’t believe this is the same team that lost to Brentford. So much more desire and hunger now. Great to see. I did think the disallowed Martinelli goal was wrong. If that foul had happened in the box the ref wouldn’t have reversed the decision. Very soft, it was technically a foul but for me VAR shouldn’t have overturned it.

                        I must be the only one who actually thought the decision against the Hammers was the correct one. He did foul Mendy

                          Expected the loss but not through being so poor. Man U really weren’t that good but we showed no desire. Thought Rodgers set us up way too defensively and then waited until 70 mins to change it. Why you would play one of the best defensive mids in the league at CB when you have Soyoncu on the bench is beyond me.
                          The formation was so negative, Vardy completely isolated, growing very impatient with Rodgers now.

                            My earlier prediction is looking like coming to fruition. I really can see them running away with the league, if they can have injuries go their way. Still reckon they need to tidy up I defence, but that should come as the season progresses. With Haaland they really are a different proposition! If they have the league as good as sewn up by New Years we could see the CL drought come to an end

                              Agree about Chelsea. At the start of last season IMO they had the strongest and deepest squad in the league. To finish 3rd was a huge under achievement.

                              I’m worried about the game on Thurs, can’t see us winning it with the way Utd have bounced back and I fear it will be Rodgers’ last. We really need this window to close so we can get on with playing with the squad we have

                                I still think Liverpool will finish second, they are easily still the second best squad in the league and should finish comfortably ahead of 3rd IMO. I think you are right though, I can’t see this being a two horse race. I suspect City will have a very comfortable lead by Jan/Feb. I do think there are far more dangerous teams than there ever have been this season. So many teams can and will push those traditional top 4 teams I think. Arsenal are playing well and finally have a squad to put away some of those top contenders, same for Newcastle, who I expect will keep building their squad throughout the season.

                                  Gotta say, that is the most hearty performance from a Utd team in two seasons for me. They all worked hard as a unit for once, which was rarely ever seen under Ole and certainly was not present under RR.
                                  Could this be a turning point? It certainly sets a blueprint to the players to prove that working hard together pays off. They’ve just outworked the hardest working team in the prem!

                                      Nine, if you watch the game back they barely had a shot until after we scored and then Rodgers decided to make weird substitutions and make us sit behind the ball. That’s when they racked up the chances, not before

                                        I think with Rodgers right now there is mental games being played with the board and if so, it’s pissing me off. The lack of transfers and the off-field management of the squad (Kasper leaving on the eve when Pope and Henderson were both available only weeks prior, Fofana being left out of the squad due to possible transfer when he only signed a 5 year contract weeks prior) are nothing to do with him. However, why the #### he is picking Amartey and Perez over Soyuncu and Tielemans/Albrighton I have no idea. I feel like it is a show of petulence from him to the board to show them he doesn’t have the squad to compete, when in reality we have a very good strongest XI available, he’s just refusing to pick it.
                                        We have lost two games now we had no business losing, we dominated and created the most chances in both games, the opposition were terrible in both and yet they won both. The selections and uncertainty are really hurting us. I’d rather the window be shut now so we know what players we are moving forward with for the rest of the season, this window still being open is plaguing the squad mentally. I still believe that with this squad and no more major injuries we could fight for a top 6 spot, but we need momentum and there is currently too much uncertainty.

                                            Ok, fair points, but what chance would a really top manager have at Utd with a dysfunctional board???? They don’t have to be mutually exclusive of blame, but if the board that appoints managers and seems to make player acquisitions is faulty you are setting both the managers and players up for failure. You can’t keep “fixing” one part of the equation without fixing the source of the problem.
