    It’s the hope and the 2nd half that kills you

    I think we have played ok this half, see how it ends, but I think Utd have been pretty average, and part of that is our press has been working ok.

    Didn't we lose 5-1 in our first home match last season after being one up at half time? :bandit:

    Thought it was 2-5, didn’t some lucky, injury prone, not that good anyway, striker get a late penalty?

    I don’t want to get carried away but Livramento is the new Cafu.

    Happy with that half. This is man utd we are playing and to go in 1.0 up is a 1st half job well done. Need a big 2nd half as they will come at us alot more

    Not bad. Not bad. I’d like us to defend set pieces if at all possible though.

    Our best chance this half is Fernandes getting himself sent off, which would be delightful.

    I think everyone did pretty well in that half, without anyone being exceptional. I do think Moussa has taken a step on though, and gets waaaaaay too much stick from our fan base.

    Walcott off for someone. Not sure who. That would be my main change right now. Possibly Tella to scare Shaw back a bit.

    Think we did okay in that half. Rode our luck a bit with the early onslaught and came into the game a bit more as it went on.

    Big 45 for Ralph this I think. Not saying I expect us to see this out but if we lose the manner is everything. As mentioned pre match he needs to be proactive with subs if we're under pressure and not wait for them to get two goals.


    Can someone kick Bruno really hard?

    How can anyone think that was a foul on Fernandes? Cracking tackle, but Sky and the media will push the "it's a foul" mantra. Already seeing it on facebook

    Who had the shot to make it a Fred own goal?

    You rang? I do give stick to Moussa, and they he played for ages I think rightly so.

    But saying that he has been pretty good today, so happy to acknowledge that.

    I doubt Theo will be hooked at half time, I worry Tino is looking tired already, so wouldn’t be surprised if Theo comes of at 80 mins for Tella, with Tino playing the whole game.

    I thought it was a foul, he takes him out before getting the ball
