Is it bad that I love Rob Green just for his Europa League celebrations?

I always hate seeing a West Ham fixture around this time of the year. Similarly I hate seeing us playing Moyes about this time of the year. Bad combo especially after two losses. We made it hard for ourselves, but we got the job done in a very tricky fixture.
Our corners have been our saving grace this year. Lovely to see. Credit to Tammy for poaching two late on as well.
Not many more positives but who cares, a win is a great Christmas gift. Onwards to inflict more suffering on Arsenal after boxing day!

Did someone say we're above Spurs this Christmas?
It's a small thing, but a thing nevertheless 😆

That was painful.
The front players in terms of Werner and Havertz like the ball in front of them with space to run onto and see the next move.
With teams playing deep they don't get that type of ball yet receive it further back with more than one player in front.
Werner was actually more frustrating for me as never once in the 2nd did he get past his first man.
James was disappointing today also, for me that was touch and go with the penalty not just with the initial contact yet whether Neto's trailing leg was caught by James, we got away with it. Also he never seemed to play the ball forward when receiving it from defence and there were opportunities.
Round about the 80 min mark thought we need to go 4-4-2 with Tammy and Pulisic up front and Anjorin on and Werner off.
Pulisic was our best attacking player by some distance and Kante played well.
Thought Mount looked tired.
I though Wolves took their goals very well.

My wife's german and I live in Austria most of the time over the year, so I assume one can't accuse me of racism or anti-teutonic sentiments. But Kai has to massively improve his game and I don't understand whats wrong with Werner. I always knew he wasn't very good on the ball, but his first touch is atrocious. Really, really bad and totally unexpected of a star signing. That being said, Mount got bullied too and was only slightly better than Kai, Reece James and Chillwells "defending" for the equalizer was horrible, Reece James and Zoumas defending for the 2:1 was just as bad. All in all it was a bad team effort from top to bottom with maybe Kanté doing ok.
The reason for our loss is the same as last two or three seasons though. We didn't take our chances, yet again. For that I can only look to our 5 players in front and their lack of creativity and urgency. I felt no aggression or will from them at all.

Gol I’m actually not counting out Kai at all. My comment is much more an endorsement of Kova (playing better than ever) than a criticism of Kai. We have an embarrassment of riches now as you have been saying too. On current evidence, Kova deserves to start.

Whenever we conceded a corner last season it felt as though we had already given a goal away, at times I couldn't even watch the stream whenever we conceded one it was that bad.
Complete opposite this season, not just defensively but offensively. A big factor for that is Willian, no more Willian hitting his first man, we finally have some good set piece takers.

Far from our best performance tonight but this is how champions win games. Great mentality again after conceding the goal. Actually even after we conceded I was unusually confident we would win this one, which is something I haven't felt in years.
For me the MOTM is Kante, he was everywhere on the pitch. Probably his best performance in a while. Also Mount and James were top class.
Isn't it lovely to look at the table right now? 😁 Can't believe I'm going to support Arsenal tomorrow.

Well worth getting up at 4am to have a butchers, great win at a ground in recent years where it’s been a struggle, early KO after internationals played without getting into top gear and a clean sheet, this imo is proof that SFL & Jodys masterplan is on track. Shame Temo didn’t get on the scoresheet but he’s done the assist running from his own half for Tammys and the second. All in all a great away day with tons of games left to enjoy. Top o the league for a few hours let’s all get wasted !

We've kept a clean sheet in 7 of our last 9 games.
Very impressive turnaround.

The best part of that goal is the perfect weight he put on the pass, running at that speed with the adrenaline pumping its very easy to over hit it but he got it so right, beautiful assist.

Or it could be that he’s a good player playing in a position he does well in?

Second clean sheet, we defended better as a team
We now have a keeper again between the sticks
Finding balance in the team is possibly going to Franks hardest job
Getting a penalty at Old Trafford is always hard...even harder when you have VAR to overrule
mez reacted to Dean in Man Utd v Chelsea (PL) Sat 24th Oct 2020 17:30 GMT
Particularly with the defence looking more solid.
mez reacted to Gol15 in Man Utd v Chelsea (PL) Sat 24th Oct 2020 17:30 GMT
This is an improvement from last season, where we lost both home and away. So we are in fact improving against our rivals. Our attack just needs to start clicking, out of all our new signings I think that Werner is finding it the hardest because he does a ton of work off the ball but it doesn't really result in much...
