      Leicester and TPM have had a shocker.

      Brendans teams always have that tendency in the locker. Wasn't that long ago they were giving it the biggun over challenging us for the title ;D

      Shocker a understatement, in January they were 14 points clear of United and a goal difference of 20+

      United will be up there next year I think, I think themselves and Chelsea will have the third and fourth spot down easily, don't see Arsenal or Tottenham coming close, maybe Leicster, although I doubt it.

      They still need a top class centre back. Maguire's sh*te.

      I think every Ferguson team he created he had a least one if not two class centre-backs.

      How long before you get Henderson back from Sheff Utd as he seems to be nailed on as De Gea's replacement.

      I've actually mentioned this on another thread and yes, it's imperative for a title challenge. All we have at present is a side that can get in top 3 or 4 next year. When you consider United have been playing some awful football, espically in middle of season I'm very surprised we could now finish 3rd although more than happy with 4th.

      Think Henderson will be No 2 next year but if what we read is true ( media ) he wants No 1 status. You can certainly argue on De Gea's last 18 months form he deserves a chance. However, I think Ole will stick with De Gea for now. For all his bad games this year I'm happy to give him another chance as a fan.

      That's probably music to your ears.  :D I've seen fair bit of Henderson and still haven't made my mind up about him.. Do you rate him?

      I don’t think that’s anything to do with United suddenly turning a corner. Yes they’ve gotten the points which ultimately is the most important thing but Leicester have taken a complete nose dive in results, I think I read they have 21 points in the last 19 games which is abysmal. Then Chelsea have been very inconsistent too.

      I think yous lot, Leicester, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, Wolves and Sheff Utd are all on very much an equal balance in terms of ability with players, but Leicester and Chelsea to an extent just had that period of games, which you are having now, where the results just seemed to fall right, not only in terms of getting the 3 points but also the teams around the same position dropping them and that’s why they got so far ahead and why you’ve now suddenly managed to catch up.

      There’s 7 or so teams fighting for 3rd and 4th and it’s very hard to say who will get them because there is so little between the teams in terms of points and ability IMO.

      I think the most consistent of the teams chasing it has probably been Sheff Utd and Wolves. I don’t remember either of them having an extended period of games where the points were just rapidly being lost.

      If Leicester lose out then rightly so because they got ahead of themselves, they thought they were challenging for the title and since we silenced them they’ve just jumped off a cliff basically. It won’t be a case of “hard luck” if they miss out where as a few of the other teams can probably count themselves quite unlucky.


      I've seen fair bit of Henderson and still haven't made my mind up about him.. Do you rate him?

      Better than De Gea IMO who can no longer be viewed as a top keeper, he’s been poor for a couple of years now, he’s nothing more than the average keeper.

      But Henderson hasn’t proven anything other than he’s had a good season. He is playing in a team without pressure, put him in a team like United where there is a high expectation and essentially any slight mistake being scrutinised, that is the real test for him because bouncing back from a mistake in a team with no pressure is a lot easier to do. Making a mistake at a team expected to compete at the top or for trophies, a mistake from one player can be the difference between make or break and you only have to look at Karius to see how he cost us the CL and he’s never recovered.

      Like many will say, someone's downfall another person/team gain  :D and that's exactly what United have done. Like I've said though not getting carried away with it as you know just enjoying the moment.

      We both know although United improving long way to go before we catch you guys up, espically if you have another season like this one.

      Re Henderson.. This is my thought process too. Doing it for Sheffield your never really under that much pressure but United different matter. Can he take it with 75,000 fans looking down at him. Won't be easy that for sure. I'll keep open minded though..

      Ps.. good post.  :)

      Glad he’s getting his chance to show what he’s all about though, and hope it continues for a long time to come, just not against us.

      I just can't see that happening, not sure Henderson is good enough yet. Also De Gea is on a big wage for a long time so United will be stuck with him until the runs down now, and I cant imagine Ed Woodward being happy his 300k a week keeper being on the bench.

      United look a lot better now, but like I've said to a few of my Manc pals the landscape has changed from their glory days in that 3 losses in a season probably rules you out of a title these days. Not sure if they have that consistency  yet.

      Considering they got beat 9-0 at home earlier the season, Hasenhuttl has done really well to turn Southampton around.

      So, what are we making of the fact they're extending the five subs rule for next season?

      City have obviously got a stronger bench than us, no offence Div, and they can bring on five quality players to replace, erm, quality players. Us aside though and what with recent events regarding ffp it's a bit sh*t for the teams lower down the league if the 'big boys' can just bring on half a team isn't it?

      I think it's another joke decision that will only increase the chances of super rich clubs like City with £500 million benches winning tight games.

      Between this and the ffp farce I'm starting to lose faith in the future of football.

      I am not a fan of it even though we do benefit more for it as we have bigger squad than majority of side but it does punish smaller clubs.

      So I assume if they are keeping 5 subs does that mean they will still keep 9 players on the bench? (I believe the 9 players on the bench is worst than the ability to use 5 subs)
