McGregor superbly tips over a long range effort from fellow Scoot, Charlie Adam. The corner is cleared.

9:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Back to the Spuds goal. It all started with an innocuous goal kick and after a few passes, the QPR defense was torn to shreds as Danny Rose had acres of space down the left and found Ade , who easily slotted past Rob Green.

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! 1-1 as Ryan Shawcross bundles home a rebound . it was just barely over the line and verified by goal line technology. it all started with a throw that Hull City thought they should have had. Bjoan Krcic put in a nice cross and Curtis Davies had a header come off the inside of the post and off McGregor , then Shawcross bundled home from close range.

10:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hull City will be bitterly disappointed as they thought they held out for a win and the replay showed that a Stoke cross last came off of Pieters. Hull City should have been awarded the throw instead of Stoke.

10:15 AM

Ping pong in the Spuds box and Bobby Zamora finds Row M with just Lloris to beat.

The Stoke goal has now been credited as a McGregor OG as the shot from Shawcross came off McGregor's back and trickled just over the line.

10:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It finishes 1-1 at the KC. Neither manager will be pleased as Hull City held a lead a man down most of the match, but conceded late off a throw that they should have had. Stoke will be disappointed that they only drew despite having a man advantage most of the match

10:23 AM

I'm off to take Sparky walkies , but will be back for United vs the Black Cats.

10:23 AM

I'm back for the late one. Here are the teams:

Sunderland: Mannone; Vergini, O’Shea, Brown, Van Aanholt; Cattermole, Larsson, Rodwell; Buckley, Fletcher, Wickham. Subs: Pantilimon, Jones, Bridcutt, Gomez, Altidore, Mavrias, Roberge.

Man Utd: De Gea; Jones, Smalling, Blackett; Valencia, Fletcher, Cleverley, Young; Mata; Rooney, Van Persie. Subs: Januzaj, Hernandez, Welbeck, Kagawa, Michael Keane, Amos, James.

Referee: Martin Atkinson (W Yorkshire)

10:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Of course this mundane matter of the match is somewhat overshadowed by the impending transfer of Real winger Angelo Di Maria to United for a jillion pounds.

10:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm back in time for the Black Cats vs United from the SOL. The teams are in the tunnel.

10:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I love the pretension of Sunderland playing Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana" overture while the players are coming out. Everton's "Z Cars Theme" would be more appropriate.

10:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Welcome back, mate - how was the walkies with Shadow?

10:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning Bob. Glad to enjoy the pleasure of your company. Di Maria better be one of the all time United greats or else that can be deemed another overpriced transfer.

10:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ta, Bob. It was with Sparky and am delighted to be inside the air conditioned house.

10:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I thought the theme music was rather interesting, building up the suspense.

10:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Both teams had poor home form last season. They had much better away form.

10:59 AM

They're off from the SOL.

COME ON MAN UNITED!
COME ON MAN UNITED!
COME ON MAN UNITED!

11:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Chaotic defending from United from the off as Yashley gives away possession , and Connor whickham played a nice through ball. Great last ditch tackle from Jones.

11:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We've only just started and Yashley has played a suicidal backpass that Leeds ex-loanee Connor Wickham was nearly on to. Jittery start for your lot.

11:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Of course Ander Herrera is crocked after one match. Welcome to the Prem Hair Bear too, but he's no loss.

11:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Van Gaal is apparently a tactical genius so he doesn't need to take advice from the likes of me but is Yashley really a proper full-back?

11:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I thought Herrera was good in pre-season, no?

11:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roon and RVP playing up front and United really need some goals from them.

11:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Cattermole scored a corker last week and he's trying his luck again. Whiffed it wide.

11:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Herrera was, but struggled against Swansea. Agreed about Yashley. I know Evra went to Juve and the other Dutch left back went to a Russian team, but I thought United did sign a left back.

11:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That goal from Cattermole was a collector's item.

11:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

In the GBB stakes, Ramsey, Costa, Naismith and Berahina are tied on two goals.

11:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United struggling with the back three formation as Smalling clears into touch. The players don't seem to know their roles.

11:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

will that change tomorrow?

11:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sunderland really working hard to put United's backfour under pressure. Poyet's got them well schooled.

11:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Clev tries a pop but that's an effort from a player lacking in confidence.

11:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United finally with a chance as Valencia goes down the right and passes to Not So Clever Boy , who shoots well over.

11:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Hey Guys
I am around and about today
May not be here all the time
Atrocious so far by the team in blue
They're making me feel blue!


I thought we were going to get rid of half the players starting today!
Cleverley, Valencia, Young

Herrera out injured

11:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Sunderland look well in control.

11:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning UWS. You are spot on about the blues.

11:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Blackett looked okay last week except for passing the ball right back to Bony so he could take a free kick and let Swansea break

11:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Welcome, UWS - "blue is the color/football is the game...." la la la

11:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Atrocious by Cleverley!!!

11:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I should know the answer to this question , but UWS probably will. Did United sign a proper left back this summer.? Bob and I were discussing that Yashley is not meant to play that position.

11:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Great football song.. one of the best

11:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Atrocious by Fletch!!!

11:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Well,
Shaw and Rojo are both left backs

11:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Blackett actually played better than his experienced teammates. I put that poor back pass down to inexperience. Otherwise, he showed that he should be starting.

11:12 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Young… unbelievable

11:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Young seems all at sea - gives away a stupid foul and Sunderland can now bring the big boys up.

11:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Training pitch routine....does all awry.

11:13 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Cleverley and Young have been as bad as each other!!!!

11:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now it's Clev diving in - take 2 on the free kick.

11:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ta, UWS. I should have know that. Is Shaw out injured.? Rojo should be able to start after the international break. otherwise, it doesn't make sense to start Yashley at left back when there are two internationals that play that position.

11:14 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I really thought United were going to be better this season!!!!

11:14 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Shaw is out at least a month

11:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Me too. They said that LVG normally has a poor start his first three months in the job , then all of a sudden play well. I'm not willing to wait that long

11:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Atrocious again by our VICE CAPTAIN!!!

11:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Wickham was in from a great ball from Buckley. Somehow couldn't compose himself. United at over the place at the back.

11:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH! Connor whickham was clean through and had a tame effot easily saved by De Gea.

11:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Yes - that's exactly what United needed. Mata with the finish!

11:16 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

GOAL!!

I MISSED IT

MATA WITH THE GOAL

UNDESERVED!

11:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!

UNITED TAKE THE LEAD AGAINST THE RUN OF PLAY A MINUTE AFTER WHICKHAM MISSED A SITTER.

11:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Valencia did really well to get into a crossing position and the deflection helped it on to Mata who only had to tap in.

United 0-1 up!

11:17 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Can't believe we are winning!
Is that the turning point?
Win six nil and win the next 36 games!!!

11:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And now there's a chorus of "Glory, Glory, Man Utd!" coming from the United corner of the terrace.

11:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It came off a long United possession and a pass from Valencia was whipped in and I think it was an OG by Seb Larsson. Definitely against the run of play.

11:19 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Before the goal I was typing this

United in the mid Naughties were better than this lot
When we let Arsenal and Chelsea win their titles in 04, 05 and 06… the likes of Phil Neville had a starting spot instead of in the 90s when he was a squad player

You could say the same as Fletch, Clev, Young, Smalling, Jones, Valencia….

11:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hopefully, this will settle United's nerves.

11:19 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United jump from 17th to 10th… a couple more goals would up us to 7th

11:20 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It was a dangerous ball in that neither Brown nor O'Shea - the two former United center backs - wanted to touch for fear of turning into their own nets.

11:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good point, UWS. United also spent 76 mil on players and two out of three are out injured. We need them ASAP.

11:20 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fletcher goes in with a nasty one on Chris Smalling.

11:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So how will Di Maria change this side. The first person you could see pushed aside is Juan Mata, right?

11:22 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Where would DiMaria play? Would we move back to a 4 4 2 and play him on the flank
He won't play out wide with 3 at the back.. he won't come back and defend

11:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Seventh place sound s familiar , but not good enough. Good point, Bob. The former United center backs let it go so the former Arsenal midfield player could turn it in to his own net. we need all the help we can get.

11:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That is a good point. I was thin king that he could replace Valencia, but he will have to defend. It's not La Liga.

11:23 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yashley with a decent cross over that Brown was forced to nod behind.

11:24 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Good run by Young and crossed well

United corner… it will hit the first man and be cleared

11:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yashley has a cross headed out for a corner by the Orange and a wasteful ccrner by Mata.

11:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I think he plays on the left more often for Real, no?

11:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A Dutch collision as RVP fouls Van Arnholt.

11:25 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

take Young's spot then… I think it needs to be a 442

11:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That makes sense.

11:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I do not follow Real closely enough. In that case, I'm not sure if he would replace Mata or Not So Clever Boy. Yashley would be replaced by Shaw or Rojo,

11:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice turn by Whickham off the throw, past Jones , but wide with the effort.

11:28 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I'd like to have Blind.. of course.. he plays on the left but would be good at the back
Blind, Rojo and ?

Of course, not sure what Rojo is like



Leeds United get another mention

11:28 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United are still piss poor

11:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It seems as if the system would need to change in order to accomodate Di Maria.

11:29 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That was a rather kind evaluation of Wickham's term at Leeds. He was pants.

11:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Leeds mention must be Connor whickham.

BLOODY HELL

Oh dear - Jack Rodwell with a free header levels it.

Good move from United earns a free kick down the right.

11:32 AM

A deserved equalizer by the Black Cats and a poor goal to concede. Great corner by Seb Larsson, but Rodwell had a free header.

11:32 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Useless free kick by Mata

11:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If United were to sign Danny Blind then we would hope there wouldn't be any blind spots. I hope Rojo doesn't see red, and that Shaw shores up the defense.

11:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And now another chance - Roon over this one.

11:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Mata runs over it and Roon whips it wide left.

11:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Poor free kick from Roon is well wide.

11:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Tyler Blackett appears to be playing left back. Where's Yashley?

11:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United having possession but going no where!!!

AND LOSE THE BALL


Why did Roon take it away from goal when he go the ball from Fletch

11:38 AM

RVP has been invisible except for committing fouls

11:39 AM

Atrocious AGAIN by Young

11:39 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Signs of the times… I just opened the ESPN webpage and the headline with picture says

United lose Early Lead

11:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It's really not clicking for United in midfield. I'm surprised - there's plenty of quality there. United should at least be like Arsenal - exciting going forward but loose at the back.

11:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

whickham heads on a long cross and Fletch well wide with a bicycle kick.

11:42 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Keane about to come on for Smailling… is it because he's crap?

11:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Early United substitution - Keane for Smalling. What's that all about?

11:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, Bob. They are really out of sorts. As I type there is going to be a change as young Michael Keane is about to come on for Smalling. Here it is. LVG definitely not pleased.

11:43 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Straight down the tunnel

11:43 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Two minutes before half time!!

11:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think UWS has an accurate explanation. LVG sending a very firm message.

11:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Unless Smalling is injured, it might signal the end of his United career. LVG will take a dim view of that conduct.

11:45 AM

Two minutes of stoppage time.

"United's front three something special"
NO THEY'RE NOT

Half-time - A perplexing half for United fans. Some bright moments but a lot of head-scratching play.

1-1

11:47 AM

Half time
Very depressing

11:47 AM

It's 1-1 at the half despite a poor United performance.

11:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not MANY bright moments

11:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Valencia did cross for the goal but it was same ol same ol from him
He just shuts his eyes and whacks it with all of his might… THIS time… it happens not to hit the defender in front of him. 95% of the time it is blocked

11:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It looked like the same old United. I hope subbing Smalling will give United players a kick up the backside.

11:59 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I hope LVG gave them the hairdryer treatment. His halftime talks will be crucial this season.

Apparently Smalling has a hammy strain. Makes sense.

Lucky United . Not So Clever Boy caught in possession and the ref's whistle saved him.

Yes. That does make sense. Otherwise, he was going to look a right fool heading up the tunnel.

Nice move but it's ruined by a useless delivery into Mannone's arms.

Pathetic going forward!!

Roon was not very positive going forward… of course.. hopeless cross by Young

Fred is napping despite Sunderland's performance. I blame the weather.

STRUTH.. Wickham should have scored and it could have been put in his own net by Blackett

Roon tries to take around the Sunderland many.. he doesn't change pace to get around him

OH! A shot from W attack on Whickham is nearly turned in for an OG by Tyler Blackett. Roon called for a foul on the following attack.
