      NB: Team no longer available

      We need to go all out and grab a stunning result. Our front three are on a fantastic form.

      Dreading it  :couch:

      You lot!  certainly have the momentum going into Sunday's match. Klopp will have Ole looking for cover if any of the recent results are anything to go by. Salah playing the best football of his career is going to be a nitemare to stop if that's even possible.

      Just when Ole was under increasing pressure again he pulls a result out of the bag on Wednesday. He'll need another of his get out of jail cards to squeeze a result out of this one. I know many say Derbies are derbies and (( Derby to me ) and past results go out of the window and both teams will be up for it but can only hope for a draw if I'm being totally honest.

      Anyway  :f_whistle: I'm going away for the weekend and won't be back till Tuesday so will miss all the stick that's no doubt coming my way., ;D

      I actually love your no biased opinion and I look forward to your contribution. I personally think that we need to beat you if we are to win the league or seriously challenge for it.

      If you're without Fernandes and Varane, it will be difficult to get a result.

      7 away games scoring 3 or more goals is phenemonal.

      The way were shipping goals it might be needed to.

      Let them off to a 1 nil lead, they wont have a clue from there.

      Weary of Matip VVD and Keita all having another start in them.

      Think Rashford is out of this for them? On form we should be winning this but form counts for nothing in this, theyll be up for it so we better be to.

      Back 4 sort themselves out were good, if not this could be a 3 2 or 4 3 job. 3 points redmen either way

      Thanks Clint, there's alway some (haters) doubters that always give it the what's a manc doing on here blar blar blar which I ignore but I honestly don't wear the rose tints like so many do.

      Do I want you to get beat? Course I do and obviously works both ways. However, that doesn't stop our fierce rivalry from good banter and honest opinions Said this many times but I have many Scouse mates and we literally do take the p!ss  (( bit like Carr & Nev )) out of each other all the time.  :lmao: We don't have hate we just want to win because between the both of us we have the greatest rivalry ( my opinion  ) in the game that have won countless trophies between what no one can argue are the two best clubs in English history to date.

      I think Varane will be a bigger miss than Bruno because we have lots of quality up front anyway so can take a bullet in that department. Midfield and defence certainly not our strongest suits and need two additions in January window to. Keep top four hopes alive.

      Saying that even if we had them available I'm not that hopefully. I'm just hoping Ole doesn't forget to put that get out of jail card in his pocket before he leaves for the match  :D

      I very rarely post in match threads coz I see how toxic it gets amongst your own fans when not going well so keep clear  ;D I've done the occasion post when we play you lot!  ;D However, I still get accused of wumming so keep everyone happy if I can. I'll certainly post till match day starts though  ;D

      We’ve all been here before, us being on fire and Ole getting fired, it’s the same old mopus operandi, we should batter this lot blah blah blah, yes on paper it’s looking like men V boys but we all know it won’t be a battering don’t we, it’ll be tight as f**k as usual, MUtants always raise their game against us and always seem to hinder us somewhat,

      I cannot see it any other way, however, I do think we will win, probably quite comfortably in the end but it most definitely won’t be easy, the best MUtants can hope for is a draw, they will have done well if they do, their problem is fitting all those ego’s in a side that will be cohesive, we have seen recently that they are miles off any semblance of working unit, and old Ole is trying to please everyone, which in all intents & purposes ain’t never going to happen,

      His problem began when golden bollocks cr7 returned, everyone at OT had a hard on when he came back, even the women, now it has become a nightmare, how can Ole not play him, the alleged best player ever to have breathed, and when he does play him others rely to heavily on him, and he brings  a imbalance to the team, can’t see that changing any time soon, well I f***in hope not, Ole’s doing a great job I hope he stays for the remainder of his contract and beyond.


      After Sunday we will start seeing the REAL difference between us, after nine games we will have opened up a 7 point gap, a truer reflection of where we’re at in comparison to them, they finished bridesmaids last season but we all know that that wasn’t a true reflection  due to our season destroying injuries , and as the season goes on that gap will widen, you can put your house on it.


      1-3 and that’s being generous.

      Good post Billy and yeah your right, their normally closer/tighter affairs even when one team playing better than the other. United's record against you lot! in last 5 years + pretty good so clinging on to that hope along with the fact Ole on tightrope again.

      CR7 is without doubt one of the best players to have graced our game along with the Messi/ Hand of God/Pele/ Best etc etc Being a manc shouldn't reflect our rival fans see him. He's been world class wherever he plays.

      As for Ole doing great? You obviously know you can p!ss off with that one don't you.  ;D

      I think it will be 0-2 or 1-3. However, I can't put that up in the prediction league thread coz my heart won't  let me.  :lmao:

      Whatever form both sides are showing, it’s gonna be tight, it is rarely anything but.
      I think Jürgen always goes a bit to negative in these matches, we should just play to our strengths and not worry too much about the other side.
      Deal with it as it happens, but don’t restrain our attacking strengths in fear of them.
      We do that, could be 3 or 4 nil.
      We go too negative and they could nik a draw.

      Be brave lads and go for the 3 nil option.

      Against Atletico, Keita went missing for two 50-50 tackles and we conceded both times with a  little help from matip !
      Although he scored a cracker, you can’t afford to be turned in a tackle that easy, that far up the pitch.
      No doubt the presence of Fab will help, but he’s still gotta be much stronger in the tackle, or turn and recover quicker.
      There’s a great player in there somewhere, just failing to show the complete article just yet !

      I’ll put that score up in the prediction league for ya mate don’t you worry about that, the bad news for you is I think they’ll stick with Ole at least through this season, talk of Zizu being the next gaffer but he might prefer a Nookie broon to a Boddingtons, and start from scratch rather than trying another rebuild with possible financial restrictions from the Glazers,

      Although it pains me to say this but for me CR7 has to be right up there amongst the best ever, we have seen through the decades how Pele’s mantle has dwindled but football as a whole changes with natural progression, so as admirers die off so does the esteem he was once held,

      If push came to shove I’d have to go for Maradonna as the best there ever was, the things he could do with a football are legendary, that story Linaker tells of how he played keepie  uppie and would launch the ball miles high and only move a couple of feet to collect it again and repeat it again and again, Linaker says they tried to do the same on the training pitches at Barcelona and nobody could do even one, unbelievable from the little fella, now like him or loathe him he for me was the best ever, as for Messi and CR7 for second I’d have to say CR7, while Messi more or less was a one club man Ronaldo has done it for three different clubs in three different countries, that is outstanding, to play at a level for so long and still be one of the best around is particularly special, you have no idea how much that hurt to say that, but sometimes you just got to doff your hat and give credit where it’s due, Oh and I’d put our King right up there too by the way, he too was one of the greatest ever to have graced us I’m sure you will agree.

      Balanced post from you but that is the norm anyway.  ;)  I'm with you on the Messi bet. I've actually said it on here while back. World class as he is never done it for another club and more importantly the hardest league  in football which we know is the premier league. I don't doubt that he could do it but always that element of doubt because he hasn't.

      Can Messi still do it at 36 like CR7? Remains to be seen but once again he's in a weaker league so still doubts  even if he does it in the French league.

      I think after 2022 World Cup see Messi leave European football and go either MLS/Newells Old Boys, felt to me like the move to PSG was to let him play a high enough level to be sharp for his last pursuit of the World Cup. Only way Messi PSG sint is seen as success if he brings them UCL title (similar fashion to Ronaldo's move to Juventus in which would be seen as failure despite all the goals and couple Italian titles). Always a great debate as different people view different  achievement in different way. Personally I think if either one is successful in Qatar next winter that could put it to bed but until then arguments can be made for both sides.

      Back to the game like to see the way we are scoring on the road can continue. I think their could be a few in this game the way both sides are playing (so expect 0-0) 😆

      Personally see only change being Fabinho for Ketia. See if that XI can do the job and if we need more thrust and attacking through the middle we can bring him on. Other then that I expect the same line-up as we played midweek.

      Very tough game ahead. We won there last season without fans but generally at a full Old Trafford we've really struggled to impose ourselves in recent years.

      I would go with Fab, Milner and Henderson in midfield, leave Ox and Keita on the bench in case we fall behind. Bobby to keep his place up top too. Could make the case of breaking the CB partnership up given how poor we've looked at the back but I think Jürgen will wait another week to do that.

      Baffling to think I am benching him because of that . Read what I said its about their CB pair we are coming up against why does everything revolve around Bobby FFS you are only as good as your last game when he err didn't score a hat trick

      Can Messi still do it at 36 like CR7? Remains to be seen but once again he's in a weaker league so still doubts  even if he does it in the French league.

      Think put Messi in any league and he will still do it, you only have to look at the amount of goals he’s scored against English teams over the years. Out of him and Ronaldo, as good as Ronaldo is/was, he’s not as naturally gifted like Messi. For Messi it’s almost effortless and he hasn’t had to really bust his gut to get to that level, the same can’t be said for Ronaldo IMO. That’s not taking anything away from Ronaldo because he’s earned the right to be viewed as possibly the greatest ever player, I just think it’s not been a natural thing for him so has to keep working hard to stay at the highest level but is definitely showing signs of being on the decline now. I view Messi more like Zidane’s final years, just so effortless.


      But that’s for a different topic and a different day. Regarding our game;

      On paper we are comfortably the better team, likewise in terms of form. However, form goes out the window in these kind of matches and it doesn’t happen often for me, but I’m not overly confident about getting the win. Our defence has been very fragile of late, conceding far too many goals, usually multiple goals at that and I can’t see an attack as dangerous as Greenwood, Ronaldo, Cavani, Rashford and potentially Fernandes if he’s fit, not getting on the scoresheet. Their defence is an absolute mess, arguably one of the worst in the league with the erratic and lazy decisions they make so I think we will score too.

      Think this game could easily end 1-1 or 2-2. Hopefully we can do what we done last season and get the 3 points though. With the run of games the Chavs have coming up and City breathing down our necks, we can’t afford to be dropping yet more points.

      Hopefully I’m wrong and we get the 3 points and it’s just pre match nerves.

      Get were you are coming from positions in table mean nothing against these we have better side for what 6 or 7 years really and we have only won once I think in league . Going to be tricky and as you say can't see it being 0 -0 drab affair

      Got to go at these from the off on Sunday. We've shown them far too much respect at their place in recent meetings and are long overdue giving them a pasting in their own back yard.

      I know we put four past them in this fixture last season, but it's a completely different ball game with supporters in the stadium. I took every result from 20-21 with a pinch of salt and apart from Alison's header I won't really look back at any moments from that campaign (victories included) with overly fond memories simply because of the environment they were played out in.

      Seems as though they've bumbled through almost all of their fixtures so far this season and any victories they have had were won by the skin of their teeth, so they appear to be in prime position for a twatting off somebody and it might just be us. Although it's worth noting I've said near enough the same thing almost every time we've gone to Old Trafford in the last few years and it's still yet to happen 😂

      Your views re Messi/Ronaldo almost the same as mine.

      As for the game.
      The amount of goals United are conceding is a worry, and that's without DeGea playing well to date this season. I'll happily take the 1-1 or 2-2 if you offer it me KK  ;D

      Alisson's header and beating these with Williams and Phillips at the back after the Invasion we're about our only highlights of last season.

      Form, league position, previous history, it all goes out of the window in games of this magnitude.

      It's all about fight, passion, desire and converting your hatred of the opposition into a positive and dominant force!

      Who wants it more? It will be us without a doubt! As long as we control the midfield the result isn't in doubt.

      I fancy them to get a goal but i think we'll get at least three!

      I predicted 5-2 to us. I think we'll slice through them time after time and press their clumsy defence into panic. They'll have chances too providing their talent is fit, but we function so much better. They usually go into coward mode against Klopp teams but with Ronaldo in the team they can't even play a counter game, they have to attack and we are far too good for them. If they play as I expect it might even be more than 5.

      On form it should be a win for us, by a couple of goals margin at least. Having said that form goes straight out of the window, especially playing away at OT.

      Horrible place to go for us even though we somehow beat them last season with an outrageous back 4.

      Their pitch is too big, with slopes going down the sides of the ground. The stadiums rotting and rusting away and if they didn't win in midweek they'd probably be donning their Norwich scarves banging on about the Glazers only spending a million a week on Ronaldos wage packet.

      Basically any result is possible here, we could blow them away or they could pick us off on their cowardly counter attacking style. For any title ambitions we have to win some games against top 6 sides so this one would be nice.

      Don't lose and I'll be happy enough. Always a real stressful game of footie this one for both sets of supporters no doubt.

      Ronaldo might prod or head one in but not worried about him particularly. Rashford though looks really sharp since returning back into their side.

      I don't think they can play on the counter because Ronaldo isn't fast enough now. Their focus is to progress the ball so they can get it to Ronaldo in our box and to do that they take enormous risks and leave enormous gaps. I don't see how they can do anything else because the Ronaldo ego is everything. It seems tailor made for us unless they drop him.

                 Ally
      TAA Matip VVD Robbo
      Hendo Fab Milner/Jones
      Salah Bob Mane

      Back 5 picks itself.
      Between Jota/Bob for the front, think Bob must be favorite.
      Hendo/Fab in the middle plus one other - I'd go Jones if the lad is fit, have been impressed with him. Milly 2nd choice. Keita 3rd. Though Jürgen started Naby against Athletico, so maybe he's in with a shout for first XI here too.

      Either way, can't underestimate Utd. Saw some of the Atalanta match, defensively ropey in the 1st half, but in saying that they still created enough good chances to be ahead at HT instead of 2 down, some poor misses. And they scored 3 in the 2nd anyway.  They have lot of options going forward, so need to be better at the back that we were at Madrid, or Ally might need to be MOTM again.

      And Ole always seems to pull out some results when under most pressure to give himself a few more months. Kinda torn, do want him to stay, but wanna beat these pretty badly :)

      At the back though they can be got at, and for our forwards this game comes at the right time. All of them chomping at the bit.

      Looking forward to it, always a massive game, moreso for them as the minnow :)    COYRs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Away to the mancs is the biggest fixture of the year every year for me. Always has and always will be. I never feel all that optimistic no matter the form of the 2 teams and tomorrow is no different. We've drawn 2 big games at home to the chavs and City so an away win at one of our rivals would certainly be a tonic.

      We're certainly playing well this season and still unbeaten. As for them you simply don't know which team will turn up. They be absolutely woeful for 45 and then brilliant for the next 45.

      I know one thing though, it always makes me feel good when I see Fred in the starting line-up. I know Naby gets some stick due to his price tag but this lad cost nearly as much and i think Djimi Traore was more comfortable on the ball!

      I reckon it'll be a 2-2 draw myself.

      I strongly advise us not to beat them by more than 4 goals because that could make Ole being fired and we do not want that. As long as Gollum is the head coach this lot will be stuck at #20 and #3. I'd almost recommend to rest some guys against these clowns, but then just play it safe. Win and move on.

      To be honest, I tend to have the same view regardless of whether this would be for trying to win the league, trying to get top 4 etc and relative to the teams we are competing with for whatever it is we are trying to achieve.

      Back in May my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, and we named him Elliot.

      His life was, sadly, a short one. Elliot lived for just thirteen days, having suffered a pre-birth brain hemorrhage that didn’t reveal itself until he was a couple of days old. Our lives won’t ever be the same but he did leave us with some gifts...

      One of them was the 4-2 win at OT, which turned out to be the only match we’d ever get to watch together. I held him in my arms for the entire game - his mom had stepped out of the hospital briefly - and cheered with him as the goals tumbled in. What a memory.

      Here’s to hoping they can do it again. This fixture will forevermore have a different shine to it for me.

      If we win, we eliminate Utd from the title race early on and keep fighting against the two blues.

      We are full team (except Thiago and Elliott) with our backbone all fit and I expect nothing less than a draw at their ground.

      Away form has been very impressive, expecting us to win, Ronaldo only needs half a chance, so hopefully Virgil can keep him in his pocket like he did Lukkaku, 3-1 to the mighty reds 😊💪

      Anthony Taylor is reffing this one. I'm not massive into blaming referees or thinking they all hate us but there is no way in hell he grew up in Wythenshawe during Uniteds rise to the top and supported Altrincham.

      My mate is a United fan and referee at conference and u23 level. He's been linesman at United u23s a few times because its down on his form he supports Bury.

      Its well known in refereeing circles who Taylor supports so I just hope he calls the game fairly.

      Im sure hes taken this game a few times now but the bloke is a manc and a red one at that. Have to hope he blocks that out with the world watching.

      Dreading this for some reason, it’s a 1-1 game all over… we’ll dominate possession and have chance after chance, but fear we’ll be left frustrated. If there’s a winner it’s on a bad decision and with todays ref that only falls one way unfortunately.

      Hopefully I’m proven wrong badly.

      I strongly advise us not to beat them by more than 4 goals because that could make Ole being fired and we do not want that. As long as Gollum is the head coach this lot will be stuck at #20 and #3. I'd almost recommend to rest some guys against these clowns, but then just play it safe. Win and move on.

      Sssssshhhhhhhhhh.

      Ole staying is a laugh, but I hope we f**king humiliate them.

      Aw mate, my heart goes out to you and your wife, happy you had those special moments with little Elliot as brief as they were, no one of course will understand your pain but I hope through time that will ease so you can treasure those memories,

      I’m sure if Jürgen and the boys had heard of this they would put extra effort in for you, I’m confident though that they won’t need extra motivation to get the job done, we will win today I have absolute no doubts about it at all, and 2-4 will do for me .

      Sorry to hear about your loss BostonScouse. Both you and your partner stay strong for each other, i will pray for you all. Know that Elliot is in a wonderful place and is no doubt looking down on us all and sending blessings.

      Know you will both meet him again someday, until then, you cherish those memories, those moments in time, they are priceless.

      May God Bless You All.

      If you could get Elliot to maybe send some blessings to Klopp and the boys it would be appreciated.  ;D

      We're much the better squad and a far more coherent side.

      On form this should be a given but never is in these games.

      With Ronaldo and Sancho signings, yes you are. You're not because of your PE Teacher.

      You certainly got that right  :lmao:

      No sadio? That can't be right. Today is not the day to leave out Mane nor Matip and fabinho.

      Same here. 3 games in a week for Milner would be a concern.

      Back in May my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, and we named him Elliot.

      His life was, sadly, a short one. Elliot lived for just thirteen days, having suffered a pre-birth brain hemorrhage that didn’t reveal itself until he was a couple of days old. Our lives won’t ever be the same but he did leave us with some gifts...

      One of them was the 4-2 win at OT, which turned out to be the only match we’d ever get to watch together. I held him in my arms for the entire game - his mom had stepped out of the hospital briefly - and cheered with him as the goals tumbled in. What a memory.

      Here’s to hoping they can do it again. This fixture will forevermore have a different shine to it for me.

      Very sorry for your loss, life deals some pretty tough hands, but what a lovely memory to have.
      Hope you and your wife are doing OK.
      Would settle for a repeat of that scoreline today :)
