      That was another game by City though that was far from a good performance. They struggled against Newcastle and ended up losing, they weren’t particularly good vs Arsenal and today they were far from their best. If Chelsea are on their game then I think they have a good chance of getting something from City because they don’t look solid. Several times they were arguing amongst themselves, Kyle Walker can’t defend to save his life and they look like something is missing. They don’t look like a team that will win all 12 remaining games, they look like there are more points to be dropped by them and I hope that proves to be the case.

      Watched parts of the game.

      Everton clearly played. They tried. They are crap. They are just crap. Can't really hold it against them. It's just the truth.

      Man City on the other hand were nearly as bad as Everton. They were sloppy, pressured, panicky, mediocre. Pretty crap really.

      All the talk of Liverpool feeling the pressure, but City are under performing more than we are. They grabbed the win (Everton were never going to score), but the 3 points was 99% guaranteed before kick off, so nothing new tonight.

      I just wish, more than anything we had a few more proven winners in the team.

      We look nervous, and in that sort of situation players look around the dressing room looking for inspiration. A classic example was Alan Hansen, a bag of nerves by himself but with the likes of Dalglish and Souness in the ranks he thought the team was invincible.

      This is just such a myth these players would have already won so many trophies, leagues in their age bands so they have already experienced the pressure that is causing most fans to lose their senses!

      Besides which Leicester player had any previous?

      Was just about to make this point.. the key was Ranieri & an exceptional set of circumstances..

      I know Milner has won it, Shaq in Germany & most importantly the Boss..

      That is exactly what I am saying, no body expected Leicester to win the League, not even the manager or players. It was a unown adventure, for LFC it is slightly different, I feel like we should be the best and if the players had it in their dna then the way we won championships in the past (with a swagger) would give us supporters more belief.

      We certainly make it interesting, I yearn for the days when we use to win with a swagger.

      That is why everybody wants anyone else to win the league, because we were that good.

      United back in top four, title winning form since new manager. Next season will be contested.

      United's streak under Solschaer can be put down to 2 things I believe.

      1 they hated Mourinho and the feel good factor is back and 2 Solschaer doesn't make his wide forwards track back meaning they can counter.

      Easy game football with good players and at times tactics can get in the way. They win the ball and counter and with the best players that's hard to stop.

      A lot of big clubs are going down the route of bringing positive influences from a past era back into clubs as the manager.

      Would love them to get a result, but their away form has been bad, and Hazard's mind is already in Spain imho. Fingers crossed tho.

      Just a bounce like it was when Kenny took us over. He'll get the job full time then it will be like us with Kenny on his second reign here - it will all go tits up.

      He's doing the right job is Ole - keep it up. Then we can see them sack another manager halfway through next season.

      He's doing a good job with the attack, but I still think that defence is suspect.

      Watching MOTD - f**k me everton are f**king sh*te. After hearing that sh*t about wanting to purposely lose against city then bending over the whole game - I genuinely think they’re the biggest bunch of cu*ts on the planet.

      I f**king despise them.

      Title winning form yes (( 10 from 11 )) but simple truth is you lads and City still the better teams. We need summer spending to become title contenders.

      I hope you guys get Poch because Ole looks a great fit for United, Poch could be an awful fit like Jose was before anybody knows. If it ain't broke, break it.

      I seriously think your spot on Frankly.  :-\  I'm hoping the hierarchy see it that way before its to late. Problem is if he get tops 4 and a Wembley appearance their backs will be against the walls as majority of fans love him. I did read in social media Poch buying a house in Manchester but probably the usual  bullshite  :-\

      I'm still very much all for Poch even though Ole been fantastic for us.

      see above, there's no way I want Ole there any longer. He's proved himself worthy of taking them to new heights and that's not on at all. Get Poch!

      Defensively I still think he has lots to learn Rib. Presently Ole only has one way of playing.

      Jose parked the bus every game, he only had one way of playing. Attacking football gets you more points.

      So who feels like Chelsea could get something today?

      I certainly do, i think the Chelsea lot will be up for it today and as much as their fans hate our own, i think they would love to see a big performance against City to act as an indicator of what they could be like next season.

      Hopefully, Hazard & Higuain hit the ground running today.

      Virtually almost every Manc and neutral in the media except our supporters have already assumed that City will be top of the league by tonight. The betting odds suggest so as well. So much for the market sentiment. Let’s beg to differ...

      Fine by me, let City underestimate them and get blown away, just like they did at Stamford Bridge.

      City obviously can win this but i don't see why Chelsea can't get something, especially if Hazard steps up to the occasion, as City do not look the best when facing a counter.
