Man Ure lose to Derby

Apparently Man Ure put in a real shocker against Derby in the League Cup 1st leg and lost 1-0.

Of course, they'll probably tonk them in the home leg, but still... any day which involves Man Ure losing is a good day.

Is this a good omen for us or does it mean that Man Ure will come to our game on Sunday with a vengeance?

I watched the game on stream, utd were crap, Derby were ok.

After an hour they brought on R & R and played much the same.

One thing I learned from the game, even when Ronaldo is not playing well, he has a mean free kick, he was an inch wide on his first free kick after only being on the pitch a matter of minutes.

But utd looked crap.

United played in 2nd gear throughout. They brought on Rooney and ROnaldo after about an hour but neither did much of note. I think they were on strict orders not to over exert themselves.

They know they have a replay back at their Gaff, and have us at the weekend so I don't think them losing tonight can be read into too much. They did look poor, and I think R and R's introductions were merely damage limitation

Wouldn't it be nice if we all had such kind words to say about Chelsea when they lose.

Derby done well against a UTD team that looked unmotivated unorganised and generally clueless...who is the manager at their place anyway?..he hasn't got a clue :D

strange how when utd lose to a lower league team everyone says it will motivate them for the next game, we draw v a lower league team and its the end of the world, we will play like that for the rest of the season and we might as well prepare for some time in the conference league. and it wasnt half a utd team either, it was pretty much the same make up as our team v southend.

Yeah, but the difference between us and them is that Old Red Nose isn't exactly well known for going easy on his players when they put in a sh*t performance. So at the weekend they're going to be sh*tting themselves about what might lay in store for them in the dressing room if they lose. Whereas we have put in several bad performances in the last month without a sniff of a response from the manager or players...

Yeah theres another difference, Scolari might put his arm round a player and say something like "dont worry son, I know you can play better than that"

Fergusun might actually throw a plastic Bottle...what a nutter :D

Veron had this to say a while ago

Manchester United midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron says manager Alex Ferguson often throws plastic bottles around the dressing room when he loses his temper with the players.

"Bottles are thrown in the dressing room," the Argentine international told the Daily Mirror newspaper on Tuesday. "One time I had to dodge one which flew very close to my head.

"Ferguson doesn't do it intentionally, he's not looking to hit anybody in particular, but he throws them.

"Sometimes he's more withdrawn, then he gets close to you to speak to you and when he has to throw a bottle he does. He loses his cool.

Terrifying stuff :D

I'd more worried about flying football boots than plastic bottles.

Yeah but that was a bit of a one off,

the scary thing is Veron saying " when he has to throw a plastic Bottle..he does" :D

next thing he'll be stubbing out sweet cigarette's on their faces.

They must all be proper petrified playing under Sir Al.

plus, Man Utd do blood a lot of their young players in these games, where as we.............?

Kuszczak, Rafael Da Silva, Vidic, Evans, O'Shea, Anderson (Carrick 74), Scholes (Ronaldo 63), Gibson, Nani, Tevez, Welbeck (Rooney 63).

Seems to me that there weren't so many of their young players being blooded.

I agree with Chippy. If it had been us then the team would have been slaughtered.

Evans,Gibson,Welbeck and Da Silva thats 4 out of the starting eleven, thats blooding youngsters in my opinion.

they do it the opposite way round to us. they start with the young players then bring them off for the internationals when its not working. they ended the game with only 2 of them left on the pitch i think, maybe even only 1.

Add to that they never Drew the game or went out on penalties, they actually lost in normal time,

my point is regardless of the picky "who played the young players longest" or "who's manager will be the loudest in the dressing room"

Is it wrong to have a dig and a laugh at UTD when we could all be doing that to our own team?
