    Maybe we should've played for 90 minutes instead of 45?

    That'd be a good way of making sure that we didn't lose even with our misses and waved away penalty appeals.

    We do that a little too often recently. Did the same against Southampton and only got away with it cause we weren't up against better opposition and we were lucky.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    thats bad luck and poor finishing.
    They also didn't score as many goals as we did, which is always going to be an issue.
    I guess its like being an arsenal fan over the last 10 years, and teams like stoke coming to the emirates and parking the bus, and we pepper the goal with shots which hit the woodwork, keeper makes amazing saves etc etc and then the other team breaks away and scores a goal with their one shot on target.

    deep down you know that the other team are a load of shit and you were unlucky, but unfortunately you don't get points for bad luck.

    i guess what i'm saying is, united are far from fucked, and spurs are far from good based on the result in one game.

    The "definite pens" were both "seen 'em given" but not nailed on. The Sandro handball would have been very harsh and while Vert definitely did have a lot of whoeveritwas's shirt, that is standard defending to be quite honest. Rio certainly gets away with that every single game ever.

    We rode our luck a bit but we kicked their arses all over the shop in the first half and for once Man U didn't get the luck they needed for a miracle comeback. Think we deserved the win for the first half performance on balance, not to mention being owed a fuck load of luck from over the years.

    Cleverley needs to start games. He's a much better midfielder than Giggs, and he isn't even drawing a pension yet.

    Very true. What we need is some sort of points system and league table to get a better idea of how we're all doing.

    He'll start more. I reckon he's just being protected over the last few games since the last England game.

    We need to wean ourselves our geriatrics pretty fast now though.

    Agreed. And we should look at it after 38 games have been completed rather than 6.

    It is possible that Spurs may finish above Arsenal one year, but it's very unlikely.

    What makes you ask that? Arsenal have started the season really well.

    Ah, so that's why we didn't hear a peep out of you for 99% of last season then. Makes sense.

    Saturday's win has moved us above Villa for the first time in the all-time PL table. We're now 5th.

    Liverpool next. Just 200 or so points to make up.

    There will be a poster in six months where it says "Time is Over" and has Heskey lying in a heap on the floor.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    24% - Sunderland have the best chance conversion rate in the Premier League, but the worst shooting accuracy (33%). Quirk.
    Um, I can't get my head round that.

    Presumably its because they either hit the back of the net or the carpark.

    Depends what they clssify as a chance.

    Must not be counting all shots as chances. You'd have to wonder what definition they do have for a chance then though.

    All-time Premier League table my arse. The all-time top division table is the only one to look at. You're 7th on that btw :p

    Actually the current PL table is the only one that really counts, but I'll understand why you'd prefer the one you're referring to.

    Oh, fuck me ragged. If they're that desperate, I'll dig my old boots out and give them a couple of games. At 40 I'll class as a promising youngster.

    Fletcher has also scored all of their goals so far. Bit early to start saying they're a one-man team, but if he's injured soon it could be interesting to see what happens to them.

    So, after wiping away the tears I realised that silvestre and his deflated balloon head coming back makes sense given the utd policy of beating defenders senseless in training every week. Better to have silvestre at the back than carrick.

    But then, the realisation that getting that chump back again would improve our defensive options made me weep again.
