On a lighter not I just checked the beeb for the preview of tomorrow’s game and also Lawros predictions only to remember he retired and now I need a new pre round routine! I know he was biased but it’s been a part of the weekend for years and years!

Yeah it'll be weird without Lawro's predictions, although I'm not going to miss them as he had a talent for finding an Arsenal or Chelsea fan every week to join him. It's Chris Sutton instead now:

I bet nobody had money on Sessengon or Dier scoring today. I rolled my eyes when I saw them in the starting 11, I guess Conte knows best! Spursy start to the game but a convincing final three quarters.

The Fulham vs Liverpool game was decent, if they play like that regularly (Fulham) they'll do alright, definitely deserved to be ahead at half time.

I didn’t see it although I was surprised Leno wasn’t in goal- got him in my fantasy team as well 🙄

Fair ****s to Fulham they deserved a point there. Pool were ****ing shite though. How you go from comfortably out playing City to scraping a point against Fulham in the space of 6 days I will never know.
Thiago off injured helps as well.

Just a bad week at the office.

It must be tough for them to stay motivated when they keep getting points tallies that would cruise the league for most of the previous 25 years and yet have only have the one championship in the bag

Ten Hag booed off at half time in his first game, with United 2-0 down against Brighton who have never won at Old Trafford before.

Yes I’m really surprised Man Utd lost today, especially with 9 out of 11 players starting that featured last season (the worst ever season for Man Utd in the PL) he wasn’t booed, the directors and one of the Glaziers were in the crowd, they were booed. Ten Hag basically has a free pass this season and rightly so. The Glaziers have no one else to blame for this mess but themselves. You can’t polish a turd.

Agreed @theforceuk. I was amazed that a defence with Fat Maguire at its centre and a midfield of Mcfred was ripped apart and made to look very bit the Championship level it is. I mean, who saw that coming? They did so well last year too....................oh, wait. Hold on!

Ten Hag probably does deserve grief for starting Fat Maguire over Varane, assuming the latter is fit. Varane has won a few things in his time. Minor trinkets like five Champions Leagues and a World Cup, which is, admittedly, nothing compared to Harry Maguire and his three relegations and conviction in a Greek court.
But he had no options with the midfield two. The Board haven't signed anyone, and their continued flirting with DeJong gets more and more embarrassing every week. Three months and no signing, take the hint FFS. He has as good as said he doesn't want to leave Barca and wants to play in the CL. UTD are not Barca and aren't in the Champions League. Move on. Try and sign someone else. FFS Spuds got Bissauma for 25m, Utd could beat Spurs in a bidding war. Though Spurs are more desirable club to play for ATM. But they would have had a chance there, and Bissauma is EXACTLY the kind of player Utd need in midfield.

Now we hear Utd are after Aurnautovic and Rabiot? Dafuq? One is 34 and was a lazy **** 5 yrs ago at Stoke so is hardly going to work now. Just what Utd need, another forward who won't work. Instantly adding to the work rate and pressure their rock solid midfield is under. The other is a decent player but has been trouble at every club he has been at and has had a questionable attitude. Again, ideal for Utd where everyone is famed for pulling together and never throwing a manager under a bus.

The club is such a shambles.
