    Sheff Utd fall out

    Whatever the rights and wrongs, the people I feel sorry for are, as always, the fans. If this goes wrong it's them that'll suffer.

    Buendia's Transfer fee

    I'm also looking forward to seeing Onel unleashed on the Prem, just when they think they've worked us out, we bring in natural width with raw pace.
  3. I just hope that when we play them, Mings doesn't do a job on Pukki.

    Team for Burnley

    If we can cope with the physicality, we've got this..... right now, a draw would be an ok result.

    The genie is out of the bottle - in more ways than one

    It's all good, Roberts is available after his week off.

    Burnley Tickets

    Surprising, as you'd like to think that the locals would want to see an entertaining game. If we turn up and not get bullied, there could be something in it for us.

    I can't cope...

    Agreed, but we don't want to get like that lot down the road, still talking about it in 40 years time.
  8. I saw highlights of Blades v Saints, it was like a Championship game. West Ham are a solid side at this level and won't be looking down at the end of the season. Home draw against them isn't a bad result.

    Norwich City Football Club, by drone

    Welcome Gareth, nice footage, you couldn't use your drone to drop a bomb on that bl00dy hotel by any chance..... no? Thought not.

    Time to cash in?

    What you're talking about is the natural evolution of the squad, every Club has its own way of dealing with this. The big Clubs spend a fortune, pay top wages and in a couple of years time, buy the next multi million pound superstar to replace them. In our case, the best players will move on, they always have, the trick is to find a player to replace them with a limited budget, or a promising youngster, not easy but DF/SW have had more hits than misses. Last year the side evolved as result of injuries mainly, this year it's not been much different. However, take Klose for example, when he got injured last year, many thought we'd struggle, we didn't and he moved down the pecking order. This season is a right off for Timm, he's been desperately unlucky but will we have sourced better options by the time he comes back?

    They're going to try to kick us out of it. God forbid we lose Pukki to an agricultural tackle. Burnley aren't great but they are streetwise, something we're going to have to learn, if we're going to survive.

    The only way we're going to avoid the radar now, is to go into stealth mode.....

    Questions about the tickets

    Welcome Niko, good to have you on board, if you're traveling up from London by train, you might need to book a train ticket as well..... most Man U fans live in London.

    This stage last season...

    Now now gentlemen, play nicely. According to TWTD, they're tearing up League One, the crowds are coming back, Lambert is Manager of the Month and Chambers is looking like Van Dyk... .....snigger

    Todd Cantwell

    I'm pleased Todd has stepped up this season, great to see. I do wonder if Argos had been fit whether he'd have had the same opportunities.

    Otamendi Disaster

    ....move along folks, nothing to see here.

    Our First Goal

    Some of what you say is true, but it all comes across as smug. Mealy mouthed praise like Lineker's condescending grin when he interviewed Pukki after his hat trick. I prefer staying under the radar.......

    Our First Goal

    We're underrated Thirsty, and some of our own are so used to us turning on the style, that we almost take it for granted. Meanwhile, the 'experts' will say that Man City took us lightly, that if De Bruyne had started they would have won, if they had defended properly we wouldn't have scored, if, if, if.

    I wonder if,,,,,,,

    There'll be other Clubs watching how we dealt with Man City's press, and with their CBs everyone will be fancying their chances.

    Now do you understand??

    So, to stop us all fretting for the next 5 days, how will we fare at Burnley?

    Unlikely CENTER Backs

    My phone always predicts center and I try to take the trouble to correct it. There's loads of words that the Yanks have changed but I'm not American and will do all I can to put it right.

    How many will man city get

    ....and they only have to face us once more this season......

    Unlikely CENTER Backs

    Burnley will offer a different challenge, more crosses into the box for Chris Wood, a big target man. We'll need a bit more mobility in front of the back four as they're more comfortable playing wide. Man C got pushed wide and limited to crosses, which isn't really their game, their quick passing and excellent movement normally cuts straight through the middle but we played narrow and gave them no space. Credit to Farke, got it spot on.

    Same XI Next Week

    Byram's gonna get 4 or 5 games to show his worth, he was a star at Leeds and was unlucky with injuries at West Ham, a brilliant find by Webber.
