  1. Pretty unfair to Pedro, whose energy has driven this late run of possession.
  2. Nice of the ref to ruin a perfectly entertaining cup final
  3. I must say I don't recall him committing many absolute howlers, as we've grown accustomed to seeing from some of the other supposed top keepers in the league this season (De Dea, Pickford, Kasper, etc.). I wonder for all the stats about his poor save percentage and high number of goals conceded, how many of those he should genuinely have been expected to stop.
  4. It is inevitable that he will show up as a world class keeper somewhere else.
  5. A pure class act, was genuinely annoyed that Tammy didn't play him in at the end of the game today for what looked like an easy parting goal.
  6. Echoing what many others have said, this more than perhaps any previous season was excellence (and frustration) by committee, I don't think there a stand-out option and the fact I can barely remember the first half of the season now makes it more difficult still. Voted Kovacic as I believe he has been the most consistent player in the team, and has had a hugely important role given the inconsistency displayed by Kante, Barkley and Ruben this season. Willian probably second. Pulisic, Giroud, Mount and Abraham have all been brilliant in spurts but haven't been consistent. The inclusion
  7. Incredible scenes in the Championship today. Can't imagine how Forest fans are feeling, and Brentford fans will be gutted also. Congratulations to my adopted home Luton Town also on clinging onto survival.
  8. If at the start of the season you'd offered me an FA Cup Final and that all we need to make top 4 is a home draw with Wolves on the last day, I would happily have taken it. I would run back the same team which outplayed United and, really, outplayed the champions today for large stretches, with the exception of Pulisic coming in for Mount.
  9. Very entertaining game, and very unfortunate to be 3 goals down when I don't think Liverpool created a decent chance the entire first half. For all the moaning about our defence it's worth noting the first and third goals came from mistakes by Willian and Giroud. Second goal was a very soft FK. I'm also not sure which of those Kepa was supposed to save - perhaps the FK? The camera angle from behind TAA shows it went well outside the post before coming in though, I think people overreact when the keeper doesn't throw a futile dive at the ball. The defence, goalkeeper and holding
  10. 7 goals in his last 9 starts. Tough to see him not getting first crack at the starting job next season on this form.
  11. I really cannot believe how much I have grown to like Giroud, as I did Fabregas before him. A striker who puts himself about physically as you want from any number 9, but also has the ability and attitude to play selflessly and make everyone around him better.
  12. Tough call on whether he stays, given we're offering two years and he wants three. In that third year he'll be 34 when the season begins, and turning 35 shortly after it ends. He's been immense this season, and while he's always clearly been very athletic and extremely fit I don't recall him in prior seasons pressing and tracking back anywhere near as much as he has done this season. I'm not sure whether it is him naturally maturing or that he's playing for one last big contract, but if the Club is confident we can get this Willian, and not the streaky and sometimes sulky Willian of old,
  13. My man of the match today, lost count of the number of times he received the ball surrounded by red shirts in his own half and dribbled or passed his way out of trouble and broke us out of United's high press. Almost has that Hazard-like ability to put his shoulder down and burst past people on the half turn.
  14. Penalty aside (and to be fair he was back defending in his own box - re: complaints about his effort), I thought he looked quite lively when he came on. He's clearly a bit desperate for a goal but I don't view today's performance as particularly damning.
  15. If my maths is correct - if United and Leicester both win their next two games, and we lose to Liverpool, then going into the final day we would be 2 points behind both with worse goal difference. And if that happens, both teams would be incentivised to play out a draw to ensure they both progress, and even if we beat Wolves we miss out on GD? That would certainly be an interesting scenario, I don't imagine both teams would go into it looking for a draw but you can imagine if it's tied at the 65th minute neither team is going to do anything overly risky to push for a win in the final
