    idk which game you were watching but they were far from playing well. they were decent when attacking but left way too much space on the counter attack. a better opposition team would have equalized and then possibly went on to win when the moans and groans from the stands start affecting the players and the manager

    They were far from convincing.

    Remember that wonderkid, hot property, 'the next Patrick Viera', Yann M'Vila? He's playing for Rubin Kazan 0_o what happened... He could easily have signed for City, Arsenal, Juventus, or even any mid-table team at a top league...

    Che 3-2 Man City (Kompany not playing will be huge).

    B. Dortmund 4-3 Schalke ( i really hope so).

    Barca 2-1 Madrid (Madrid will miss alonso). Messi and ronaldo will be on the score sheet.

    if you're not 1-0 up by 20 minutes, you might have a problem. also if not 2-0 up by 70 minutes, you might go on to concede. it's all down to the crowd. the players can feel the fans' anxiety.

    Stoke have no offensive prowess whatsoever. Stoke could potentially be the opposition that can kickstart United into attempting to fight for the title again.

    Emphasis on the "attempting". But don't think that the title is 100% beyond United just yet, this early into the competition...

    the title is already out of united's reach for me
    nearly a quarter into the season and they're already off the pace with no signs of pulling back the five or six teams that i'd confidently predict to finish above them based on current form, they need RVP and their midfield to realise their potential and shut down weaker teams to have any chance

    By Stoke having no offensive prowess, I meant that Stoke has offensive prowess

    This is brilliant.

    United won't lose this. Will pull out the win. Their pressure is good, just nothing going on.

    I can just imagine Moyes in the dressing room at halftime. Sitting along with the players with his head in his hands asking for advice. "Anyone have any ideas?"

    Ronaldo + Bale starting for Madrid.

    Barca's frontline of Messi, Fabregas and Neymar...

    This is one game I am not missing!

    Disgraceful play by Van Wolfswinkel + Fer "scoring" from throw-in in injury time after Cardiff kicked it out because Tettey was injured. Referee did the morally right thing to disallow it (although not sure if it was technically correct?). Pretty disappointing not to win after dominating the match, can't seem to score at the moment :(.
