Morning, MUR - thanks for getting us started with an excellent posting. I had a late night with Kate, so it was difficult rousing myself for Spurs v. Palace. But I'm here.

Cheers mate. Thanks for joining me for the match. I think it should be a decent match. It sounds like the night Elizabeth and I had Friday night.

A shock in La Liga As Sevilla lost 1-2 to Celta Vigo.

8:31 AM

Yikes! The Evil Blades have come from two down to make it Desmond at Valley Parade with two goals in five minutes from OG and Bob's beloved Billy Sharp.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Number One Son has a shot deflected for a corner, then a poor header by Harry Kane's standards as he heads high and wide from ten yards out, looking me in my playing days.

8:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not at all happy with that come-back.

8:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A lot of pressure today on Harry Kane, who has scored for England but not for his club in the Premiership this season.

8:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Some nice interplay there by Spurs on the edge of the Palace box ends with a corner.

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Son has a shoot blocked for a corner after the Spuds made several attempts to get a shot off. Souare heads away the corner from Lamella.

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Palace are finding it hard to get out of their half at the moment and even when they do, their passing has been letting them down. This is a decent start from Spurs.

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I thought you would feel that way about the Yorkie Derby despite your beloved Billy Sharp scoring the equalizer.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. I was expecting better from Palace. I guess it's still early doors.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This match is on Born in the USA, not East LA.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice long range save by McCarthy from Lamella then Delaney clears for a Spuds corner.No Kane was offside.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Vertonghen clears a pass from Sakho for Palace's first corner.

Bloody Billy Sharp - I should have known (sigh)....

Hangelaand shoots straight at Lloris as Sore headed on Puncheon's deep corner then McCArhty saves from Chadli

Speaking of Sheffield, there was a guy we were trying to get from Charlton this summer who decided not to join Leeds. His reason - "Leeds is too far North." Where did he end up - Sheffield United. I thought - what twenty minutes up the motorway is "too far north?!"

Bolasie has a shot deflected for a corner off an entertaining solo run

8:54 AM

Chadli’s man bun. Your thoughts?

It finishes Desmond between the Bantams and the Evil Blades.

8:55 AM

Number One Son has a shot deflected for a corner.

8:57 AM

Not at all manly.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner is easily caught by McCArthy.

8:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

#1 Son seems to pull the trigger whenever he's within fifty yards of goal. Extraordinary.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ben Davies skies over a long range effort.

9:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Walker got to the by-line there but his final ball was woeful. Was he mentored by Aaron Lennon?

9:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He bundled in a corner in the six yard box in the EL. was that a trick play?

9:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

McCArthy does well to save from Alli then Kane shoots the rebound across the box.,

9:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Ally produced a great save out of McCarthy and Kane on the follow-up could merely fizz one across the goal-line from a tight angle.

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He could well have been tutored by the eight beetle, although, it's rare that someone from the LUFC Academy tutors someone from the Evil Blades Academy.

9:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The commentator seems to be priming himself for a Harry Kane goal celebration. Every time he winds one up, he bellows his name and then...."no." I'm sure that he's got a snappy line tucked away somewhere for that moment.

9:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bolasie turns and shoots sharply but Lloris is behind it.

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Can you Adam and Eve it? Three local derbies in the Capital One Cup in midweek:

Palace vs Charlton, The Second City Derby , and the North London Derby. Were these drawn at random?

9:05 AM

I'm sure Harry's used to it!

Ben Davies fouls the speedy Bolassie just outside the box.

9:07 AM

Lloris punches away a powerful free kick from Sakho.

9:07 AM

Alli called for obstructing Sakho.

Delaney is fortunate not to be booked after a rugby tackle on Kane.

mCcarthy is forced to punch away a miss hit cross from Chadli then the Spuds win a corner.. It's taken short.

The Spuds have huffed and puffed like an overcooked potato fresh from the microwave.

9:14 AM

Oh - Cabaye hit the post!

9:14 AM

OH!!! Off the post from Cabaye.

Son breaks and Kelly hacks him down - first yellow card.

9:15 AM

Then Kelly is booked for a foul on a Spuds break.Into stoppage time.A minute

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 0-0 at the half. Hopefully, it will be a more entertaining second half.

9:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

One former United trainee is on for another as Frazier Campbell is on for Willie Zaha. The second half is underway.

9:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A nervie moment for Palace fans as McCarthy clears a back pass off of Son, but it goes out for a goal kick.

9:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We're back on at Shite Fart for the second half. No changes for Spurs but Palace have made a switch up top.

9:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

AN LOB moment as David Goodwillie gives table topping Aberdeen an early lead at Hearts.

9:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Palace made a change .A swap of former United players as Frazier Campbell is on for Zaha.

9:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Still the best name in British footie - Goodwillie.

9:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That means Frazier and Alli are both on the pitch!

9:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They love their big name players in Aberdeen. I think Dean Windass had a spell there. They don't discriminate. Any end will do!

9:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice one, mate - it should be a Rumble in the Jungle.

9:37 AM

Cheers! where are the score cards?

9:39 AM

McArthur fouls Alli just outside the box.

9:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice free kick curling over the wall, but tipped out by McCarthy. Palace are no mugs - they'll not be easy to beat.

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

McCarthy pushes over the free kick from Lamella. Souare heads out the corner for another.

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Aberdeen do two up at Hearts. Niall McGinn, the NORN Irish international, with the goal for the table toppers

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Palace will be a tough nut to crack.

9:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And I'm not sure a home draw is what the doctor ordered for the Spuds. They're mid-table with no improvement in sight. Palace are 7th and over performing.

9:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Both 11 AM matches will be televised. I guess it's a rare PIP on Sunday morning

9:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Spurs have the ball in the net after a massive scramble, but it's been flagged off. More frustration.

9:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A relieved Palace as they couldn't clear and a headed goal by Ben Davies was disallowed for offside. I think Harry Kane was when he headed on to Big Ben,.Not very timely.

9:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Love the coverage - it's even edging out the Bills v. Patriots pre-game nonsense.

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It will be Saints vs United on NBCSN and Pool vs the Canaries on Born in the USA.

9:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You know which one I'll be watching!

9:46 AM

Hopefully, NBCSN. You will enjoy the double Dutch!

9:47 AM

Bolasie is booked for a foul on Walker.

9:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Sako rockets one off the post! Might have been tipped on to the post by Lloris.

9:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Palace hit the upright again as Sakho has a shot cannon off the outside of the far post. Great cross from Soaure.

9:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Eriksen is on for Chadli in an attempt to provide some late magic.

9:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Son scores his first goal for his new club!

9:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! NUMBER ONE SON GIVES THE SPUDS THE LEAD ON A TEXTBOOK BREAK LED BY ERIKSEN, WHO JUST CAME ON AS A SUB.

9:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice break forward for Spurs, Siggy fed him and Son did the rest. McCarthy might want that one back as it squeezed in between his legs.

1-0!

9:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm sure this was a sight all too familiar to you as McCarthy was too easily beaten at his near post. Lamella tackled Cabaye just outside his won box, then found Eriksen, who passed to the speedy Son, who unleashed a powerful near post effort past McCArthy despite a challenge from Hangelaand.

9:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was Son's first Prem goal for the Spuds, but he did score Thursday in the EL against a club from the Land of Borat.

9:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A nasty lunge by Delaney on Kane.Just a lecture from Michael Oliver.

9:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

An Atrocious free kick is well over and wasted.

10:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Well pointed out, mate. How did Spurs get on in the EL?

10:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jordan Mutch will need to live up to his name as he comes on for McArthur in an attacking switch

10:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just wide by Alli as he's ahead of Frazier on the count.

10:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers mate. They trailed early on, but ran out 3-1 winners. Pool drew 1-1 in Bordeaux. It was Desmond between Celtic and Ajax Cleaner.

10:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Spuds fans treat Son as if he's Number One as he's replaced by Clinton N'Jie.

10:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob will be delighted to hear that David Goodwillie has scored a second for Aberdeen as they go three up at Hearts . That's now a halftime score.

10:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I am delighted for the lad.

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Celtic vs Dundee just kicked off and the Hoops will need to win so that they don't fall further behind the surprising Dons.

10:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Spurs still need a consistent goalscorer. It's clear that Kane is suffering under the huge expectations.

10:09 AM

Bolassie wins a Palace corner.

10:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lloris easily catches the corner.

Looks like last season's Championship top scorer Patrick Bamford is coming off the bench.

Wee Gordon may do well to watch Goodwillie unless he's to much for him to handle.

10:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He's on for Bolassie. Will the Chelsea loanee be able to handle the step up to the Prem.

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed about Harry Kane.I thought this may happen.

10:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Tom Carroll is on for Lamella.

10:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lamella off and some 12 year kid is on in his place.

10:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lloris and Frazier battle for the ball. Lloris wasn't happy about the jab, but got over it.

10:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think he's more like 22. Tom Carroll has been on the Spuds books for a while, but has been loaned to multiple clubs.

10:16 AM

Alderweireld heads out for a Palace corner.

10:16 AM

Palace giving it a go as we wind our way into stoppage time. Four minutes to come.

10:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into stoppage time . Four minutes as Lloris punched away a corner that was Punceheon in.

10:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Souare well wide . That won;t tie it up.

10:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Palace need to launch it into the Spurs box.

10:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not much of a cross as Lloris easily catches the cross from Jordan Mutch

10:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was more like lunch for Lloris than a launch

10:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's over and finishes 1-0 to the Spuds.

10:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Spurs run out 1-0 winners thanks to Son's goal. They still haven't sorted out their goal drought but this will give them a bit of boost ahead of their League Cup match against the Arsenal.

10:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Celtic are two up vs Dundee as they keep pace with the Dons. The goals were scored by Tomas Rogic and Leigh Griffiths in a three minute span.

10:23 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now then - this is a major opportunity for United to catch up with Citeh. A win against the Saints today would bring United within two points of the top.

10:42 AM

Here are the teams warming up on the pitch:

Southampton: Stekelenburg, Yoshida, Fonte, van Dijk, Targett, Wanyama, Romeu, Mane, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Pelle. Subs: Kelvin Davis, Cedric Soares, Long, Steven Davis, Rodriguez, Martina, Juanmi.

Man Utd: De Gea, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Mata, Rooney, Depay, Martial. Subs: Young, Romero, Ander Herrera, Valencia, Fellaini, Schweinsteiger, McNair.

Not sure at all about these United away kits. Black with red trim and white shorts. Doesn't look like United at all.

Back for the late uns and 0-0 in both as Tadic shoots just wide.

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

It’s a slow, scrappy start here in truth. The midfield looks as if it’ll be pretty congested and tightly contested.

11:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Rojo clears a cross from Tadic for a corner.

11:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United win a free kick off the Saints corner.

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

That's a bit better from the home side. Tadic tried a slide rule pass to Pelle - well cut out by Roja who's deputizing.

Now it's is - 1-0. Sorry, mate. It was coming.

11:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BUGGER!!! PELLE GIVES THE SAINTS THE LEAD.

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

Sweeping move by the Saints. De Gea did well to save the first shot but Pelle followed up.

11:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mane oh Mane! it's hard to blame De Gea. It was slick football form the Siants that started with the kepeer. James Ward-Proswe put in a teasing cross that was saved at point blank range byu De Gea from Mane and Pelle easily put away the rebound

11:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! off the outside of the post by Pelle as the Saints are running rampant/.

11:16 AM

Aberdeen won 1-3 at Hearts while Celtic are three up vs Dundee.That means that Aberdeen will maintain their five point lead over Celtic.

A team in red and white striped shirts and black shorts is running riot vs United. It's a feeling of deja vu.

But Martial gets a little space in the ‘D, slicing well over on the half-turn.

Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nick Ames of the Guardian says: "There we are. United weren’t at the races for half an hour, conceding one to a sparky Southampton side and lucky not to go down by more. But Martial scored a superbly-taken equaliser and Louis Van Gaal’s side definitely finished the stronger. Really hard to call a winner here. Stay close."

11:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

At Anfield, it is Liverpool 0-0 Norwich at the break. Liverpool fans must really be missing Suarez today, as he scored a whopping 16 goals against the Canaries during his stint at the club.

Interestingly, Anthony Martial is now United's top goalscorer with...two goals. (gulp!)

11:57 AM

It's over at Celtic Park as the Hoops hit Dundee for half a dozen without reply. Emilio Yzaguirre, the Honduran fullback would have had a hat-trick , but for a penalty miss.Perhaps he wasn't thirsty enough to put his team seven up!

12:03 PM

Now Arlo says The United change was tactical

12:04 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Darmian/Valencia switch was apparently tactical, which might mean it was a conscious attempt to get United further on the front foot.

I remember Suarez doing better against the Canaries than Sylvester. I'm sure they prefer a putty cat over the Uruguayan striker.

Danny Ings has opened the scoring for Liverpool against Norwich.

Those Kung Fu lessons are paying off as Martial keenly concentrated as he took advantage of a poor back pass and finished cooly past Stecks. United have come from behind to lead 1-2 at St.. Mary's as they did in the Monday nighter last season./

Martial's finish is even better when viewed from the angle behind the goal. He waits and waits for Stekelenberg to commit to the right, before sliding it by his left side. Very cool!

His first for Pool. Kung Fu took advantage of a poor back pass from the Samarai Warrior.

Rojo gets back well there to cut out the cross.

Romeu is replaced by Davis, who should add more forward impetus to the home midfield.

I just viewed the Danny Ings goal. it was a similar finish to the latest United goal. Moreno tackled Russell Martin in midfield then played a long ball over the Norwich back four. Ings finished well past John Ruddy in front of the KOP./

What a world class save by De Gea from a header off a Saints corner. I'm glad he stayed with us instead of going to Real./
