    Sean, as opposed to our fantastic start to the season eh?! ?. Valencia will smell blood I think and will probably cause us a lot of problems the way we’re playing at the moment.

    Valencia at home is a game United should win and I think they will then a win at home v Newcastle and the pressure will lift a bit.

    Good win for City. Sounded as if we were playing 12 men at times. I will leave that one to Adlab lol.

    Good win for City – not great, especially in second half but kept plugging away and eventually got what, I think, we deserved. Referee terrible again.
    First time I’ve watched United this season – my God, it really is like watching paint dry – plenty of enthusiasm (in patches) but no endeavour, no invention, no pace to the play and very little idea.
    I almost feel sorry for the United fans. I did say almost.

    Just back from cinema… Mission Impossible (good yarn) . Just watched City match highlights. Should have won more easily. What a stonewall penalty on Sane and not given.
    Utd 0-0 81mins

    United at least put in a shift tonight but they lacked both confidence somewhat understandably and creativity.Real beaten by CSKA and they’ve now gone 3 games without a goal.

    If, hypothetically, Fergie was back available (I know that couldn’t happen now), but would he get the job anyway? The club has abandoned his legacy so quickly over recent years, that if he came in and immediately chucked out a lot of the egos in that dressing room, he probably wouldn’t be allowed to do it because of the money invested in them. So like other clubs in the league, they might as well change the job title from “manager” to “head coach”. Not sure Zidane would take it (and his English would be a problem). Conte can be a bit fiery himself and commands the obedience of the dressing room so I’m not sure he’s the answer. I don’t think the job would be right yet for Pochettino. Which basically implies that Man Utd need an interim manager in the short term to steady the ship and very gradually move players on whilst trying to develop the younger players. Out of all the names being linked to the job, the only one that would make some sense, particularly if they’re hell bent on keeping Pogba happy, would probably be Didier Deschamps.

    SAF is probably the greatest Manager the PL will ever see but even if he could turn back time it’s a different game now. Also imo all this started to go wrong in the last couple of years of Fergies tenure.

    I think United are so massive now that they have to bite the bullet and go for a DOF and a Head Coach and then go out and find the best two candidates available for those roles.

    Jim, we are getting the job done phase. All teams aware of City potency and all have made efforts to curb us. We are not the finished article yet by any means but I have to say it is nice to look forward to a match day and see some football, rarely a bad game name from both sides from what I have watched so far at the Etihad. I like the progress beig made but next season I anticipate at least 4/5 new players being brought in to maintain the standard
