The big difference between Özil and Mkhitaryan is to have the right/intelligent/talented players around.


#4739

This is going to be a shit season isn’t it


#4740

You know what, I think you’re right really, I’ve changed my mind on this. I’m very much in favour of safe standing, but when players go into the crowd you inevitably get crowd surges down towards the front few rows and it’s dangerous. Players should be kept back to a certain distance and punished if they contravene it


#4741

Yep… unless we get 3 points tomorrow, we are going to be 5 or 6 points behind Mou after only 3 games…


#4742

Despite the fact United have been shit for 4 years, you always knew they’d be back challenging for the league properly before us.


#4743

United have looked decent so far but it’s still early days and honestly they’ve played 3 teams they should be beating


#4744

Stoke are shit…


#4745

What pains me is they have had average seasons since Fergie left - and We havent really got better since they dipped. Theh now look to be better than us once again.


#4746

With united i just keep hoping that the longer they dont win the league, the more mistakes they make with signings/managerial acquisitions etc. Eventually that could see them settle as a Liverpool, always flirting around 4th, 5th and 6th in the league.

Even if they finish a very close 2nd to the eventual champions, it can only be good news as they’ll panic buy next summer


#4747

Mediocrity has yet to be normalised at Man United. It’s still deemed shocking when they aren’t in a title race annually, steps have been taken and they’re now back challenging. Meanwhile over at Arsenal we talk in serious terms about how to regain our top 4 position


#4748

In what universe is West Brom v Stoke considered “super”? Which bright spark at Sky decided that was a game worthy of a Super Sunday slot?! :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#4749

Pulis is fighting for the title, with 6 points in 2 games :hipster:


#4750

The arsenal game is televised right???


#4751

Yep, on Sky.

But they’re televising wba/Stoke ahead of chavs/Everton


#4752

Chelsea Burnley was such a freak result. They are still favourites for the title imo, totally bossing Everton today.


#4753

They completely are… and Cesc is controlling things - great finish, too. To be fair, Everton haven’t showed up… they look lifeless and devoid of confidence - can barely string 3 passes together.


#4754

:joy:


#4755

Morata scoring a more offside goal than Lacazettes last week


#4756

No, United have more depth, imo.


#4758

Chelsea win, while WBA draw.
