He's very negative. I remember when you used to go to OT and get battered for 90 minutes, now Spurs go there and are the dominant team. Doesn't mean you'll always come away with the points, but the fear factor is long gone.

Mourhino calls it 'a tactical victory'. :lol:

Not the type of Football that's going to win them a Premiership any time soon.

The only type of football that guarantees winning the title, is winning football. Everything else is irrelevant.

That would be the type ManCity are playing at the moment.

So, how does Lukaku get away with booting a player in the nuts? Simple, he plays for United.

I honestly wonder what planet these disciplinary panels come from sometimes.

I agree it was clear what Lukaku did and he walks free, what a joke.

For some unknown reason I've just watch United play at Sevilla. I know it's the way Mourinho sets his teams up and it's been effective wherever he's gone, but boy they are rubbish to watch away from home. It's not far off parking the bus and I wonder what SAF, who was in the crowd, thinks of them.

Jeez, lucky to get away with that result at Palace, great strike to win it though.

I'm amazed that Smalling doesn't pick up yellow cards like confetti, his default method of defending is to grab the shirt, but the refs seem to let him get away with it all the time.

Sets up well for next weeks game against Liverpool.

This week's game.

Wth Chelsea now 7 points off us, the 'battle' for CL qualification is not huge but it is for second. The past week has made the game less of a 'must win' for both sides.

live and die by the sword.....there would be a large hard core element of Man U supporters (and ex players) who would cringe at the 'reactive' football on display...

Looks like Sir Alex is into "Fergie Time". Never liked United, but what a manager he was, I wish him luck.
