Premier League 2012/13

Nope. I still don't think he is right for Spurs and I still wish we had 'Arry back. A little part of me is cheering on QPR which was the team I first supported when I was very, very little. I think it was the name that I liked.

I'd really like to see the back of Daniel Levy. He is not a football man, he's nothing but a business man. Abramovich is a nightmare. Glad I'm not a Chelsea fan. The man is never satisfied.

Good result

Rio was a silly boy celebrating as and where he did, but that doesn't excuse the City fans doing what they did

I think if United can get a fit team, we might stop leaking so many goals and might then stand a chance of winning the league, although IMHO this year the league is the Poorest standard its been for a bit, United are 6 points clear and are quite frankly rubbish at the Moment.

And before anyone asks yes I do think Tevez should have been sent off.

No excuse for throwing things but Rio really does court trouble.

There was a lot of coin throwing at the corner that Rooney was taking. it's not exactly difficult to solve the problem. Leave those areas within coin throwing distance empty.CCTV to record & identify the criminals. It's not difficult, it just takes the motivation to address the problem.

It's a shame that it's taking the shine off a great match. City could and should have scored more, but United were clearly robbed several times, the most notable being the Young offside.

I'm not worried about the defense except for De Gea - we clearly miss Van De Saar. Once Vidic returns all will be well.

Surely that was Ballotelli's last chance? City really fired up once Tevez replaced him, so I can see him being sold in January - City are rumoured to be going on a spending spree then.

Balotelli would fit nicely in Uniteds team at the moment.

If we could knock the petulance etc out of him

Personally I think Vidic is about finished the injuries are too often and take too long to sort.

We need 2 centre backs, unsure on Smalling and Jones needs more time to come back

So who would you sell to make room for him? :lol: Welbeck wold be favourite - & he effectively created van Persie's goal!

Well you could have said the same about Scholes & his eyesight in 2006 8-)

I don't know the real stats but I think Carrick has had more starts than anyone? He seems a bit of a fixture.

Hopefully being dropped from the 1st team might make Nani less greedy, and get him practising his crosses. He does have potential, it's just that Young and Valencia have more!

Apparently Rio wasn't struck by a 2p - it was a Euro. City fans don't have any use for them now .......... :lol:

I wonder if JT is flying out for the World Championship final, just in case so he can rush on to accept the trophy

Don't personally think Young has more potential than Nani

He needs to learn to stay upright, not fall over at the first touch ( given that I still think compared to Henderson or Downing he was a bargain )

I was joking the other day when I said JT would fly out for the world championship final so he could pick up the trophy

and now I see he's on the bench

Nope. Tomorrow I'll be concentrating on my elder granddaughter. It's her third birthday.

I probably won't want to know. Although there might be a miracle and we'll do the double this year.

I've been too busy giving Dave grief. He spent most of the match slagging off Dempsey calling him a useless lump of sh*t.

ROFL

I did actually call for Carrick to be Man of the Match, but my second choice would have been Lennon.

I was quite pleased with the result. There were times in the past when a 1 - 0 defeat by Man U was considered to be a good result for us.
