"Jingle Bells, ManYoo Smells, Chelski Ran Away....

...Oh what fun it is to see Leeds win on Boxing Day-ay!" La la la!

Happy Boxing Day, chaps. I'm here to get us going this morning with United traveling to the Britannia to meet stoic Stoke. Later we get top of the table Leicester against Klopp's new look Liverpool and we finish up with Newcastle v. Everton.

I'll be around or the first one but Kate and I will be joining Dad for the rest of the day. Join me for the early one, won't you?

Morning, chaps - the big news out of Blighty this morning is that Van Gaal has made the bold move of dropping Wayne Rooney out of the starting line-up. While I think it's the right move, it is sad to think about the deterioration of Roon's career. I still remember him as the teenage phenom at Euro 2004 tearing it up against France and Croatia.

Morning Bob
I am ready for a feast of football! Not sure if I can be here for the duration!
This game, then the ten o'clocker and then NBC has a double header! Football from 7:45 until 5!!

It’s looking grim this festive period for Van Gaal. Last week’s home defeat to Norwich City stretched his side’s winless run to six matches, they’ve dropped from first to fifth, they’re out of the Champions League, his team is eye-wateringly dull despite having £250m spent on it, there’s talk of him being replaced by Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, or Ryan Giggs, the press is on his back, the supporters aren’t happy and no one wants to watch Louis van Gaal’s army any more.

Morning, UWS - it's wall to wall footer today without even the time for a traditional game of Chutes and Ladders on Boxing Day. Glad that you're on board for at least some of it.

Good morning chaps. I'm here for the Boxing Day action. I love the jingle.

Your thoughts about Herrera starting ahead of Roon, gentlemen?

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I remember chutes and ladders from my childhood. I wasn't aware that it was a Boxing Day tradition.

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm glad to see it. It should have happened about three years ago! Also , Roon is starting to go a little Frannie Lee on us.

7:39 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

He's a numpty. He wants an apology from the press??
Classic headline on The Mirror
We're sorry that you have dropped from 1st to 5th
We're sorry that you have been knocked out of the Cl
We're sorry you have bored us to tears
We're sorry you have spent a quarter of billion

7:39 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

What about Schneiderlin?

7:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Leeds doesn't play today. They're the only football league match in England tomorrow. It's BEIN shown on the telly tomorrow with kickoff at 11:30 AM EDT.

7:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

A Stoke fan is in the Space Station right now.. wonder if he has good coverage of the match? Maybe he can focus in on the match from there as they pass the Brit

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great apology UWS. I think you read his mind! I think Schneiderlin is more defensive than Herrrera. He would play more the Carrick or Pig Stick role.

7:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Love the Mirror headline - great stuff!

Just the way LVG walks annoys me

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's so warm here that the AC just turned on. Dinner at the in-laws had to be eaten indoors in stead of outdoors because it was too hot!

7:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What about the way that LVG sips his tea - annoying? ;-)

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Guillotine for LVG! I would like Giggsy to taker over.

The AC is hear at Gooner Central as well. Bloody hot for Christmas.

What about Mourinho - would you welcome Jose at OT?

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sparky is going for Stoke City. He's lying down on the couch , so I guess he's expecting a boring match

7:45 AM

United about kick off at the Britannia wearing their black away kit.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They'e off from the Brit.

7:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Mata had a half chance there but didn't expect that cross from Herrera to get through to him.

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Stay away Jose . Do not pass Go, Do NOT Collect another fat paycheck

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Here's one that the press didn't ponder. How about Mark Hughes to replace LVG. He wouldn't do any worse.

7:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I have thought of him

7:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That was a dangerous cross across the box

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Potters on the attack and a cross goes across the goal. Now the Potters win a corner.

7:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great move there by Stoke, Shaquiri at the end of it fizzed over a great cross but no one was following in.

7:48 AM

They take it short and the cross is poor .

I saw that - not sure that I'll be around for that one. It's an odd time for it.

A shot from Bojan is well over. Johnny Wilkinson would have been proud.

If you get BEIN you can DVR it.

Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arnautovic is already creating a nuisance of himself for the United backfour.

7:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I do but I'm on the road so can't do that.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Robbie Mustoe said that we will see if the players are playing for the manager. Based on the start, they seem to want him out as much as UWS and I do.

7:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Herrera tries a daisy cutter from distance. Straight into Butland's gut.

7:53 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

SHOT ON TARGET!!!

That's what I hate most about LVG
United have had SEVEN shots on goal TOTAL in FOUR home games

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Obvious foul by Smalling on Whelan, the former Citeh trainee.

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Arnautovic had too much bend and went wide.

7:55 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Everyone keeps talking about United's defense.... they have been pathetic as of late

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I missed that shot because I got a refill on the coffee and not just because it's early in the morning. Does anyone need an explanation?

7:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

When Stoke look more dangerous going forward than United do, you know that the footie world has been turned upside down!

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. They've had some passes in concentration and that's me being generous in the spirit of the season.

7:57 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

From the Beeb
I'd take Stoke's front four over Man Utd's all day right now, only possible exception Martial.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's been a topsy turvy season. Also, that's why I was suggesting Hughes as a possible replacement for the one headed for the guillotine.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, UWS. Me too.

7:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Shaquiri is tormenting the United defenders. Gets upended by Herrera.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was fun watching Shaquiri until that nasty one from Hererra . That would have been legal in the 70s.

7:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Shaquiri whips in a dangerous ball but it's eventually cleared out.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bojan has a shot blocked as United are under the cosh then Blind finally clears

8:00 AM

I would rather see United play the way Stoke do than the way they play now.

8:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United win their first corner of the match

8:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bojan , the shortest man on the pitch , heads away the corner from Blind. Then, Bojan fouls Herrera after being tackled.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The wind drags the free kick from Memphis and Butland is forced to make a save as it was about to creep inside the near post.

8:03 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

One nil... absolutely pathetic!!

DAMN IT!!! EASY PEASY AS BOJAN TAPS INTO AN EMPTY NET AS UNITED WERE CARVED APART.

8:05 AM

The defense isn't that good!!

DeGea has saved them far too many times!
David's eyes are in Madrid right now... why put up with this crap in front of him

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Memphis believes it is better to give than to receive as he basically gifted the Potters their goal. He headed back an innocuous pass from Affelay and Glen Johnson squared it across the goal and Bojan easily tapped in. He likes receiving gifts.

8:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Let's talk about a good team... Leicester City!
They say they will fall but will they?
They won 7 out of 10 matches from last season
They have won 11 and only lost one of the first 18 games this season... that is almost a full season!!

8:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sorry, lads - I chose the wrong time to visit the bog.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Despite that, De Gea has been a pro and has been playing well despite that. His teammates should stand up and be counted.

8:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

They must fall at some point. The Foxes are relying on their first team and particularly Vardy and Mahrez. But no team goes through an entire season with their first team intact. Something's got to give at some point. But while it lasts, they are fun to watch.

8:10 AM

Bojan drilled one into the wall and then Arnautovic curled home the rebound with a scorcher.

Another shot on target... and another.. no just one!
HairBear was offside.. it was a back pass anyway

8:14 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I hope you're right Bob

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hair Bear didn't , but Butland was alert as he made a close range save, but the offside flag went up. At least that was a better idea from United

United clearly need to have more man-buns on their side. That appears to be the key to Stoke's success.

United are lucky as as Arnautovic beat the United offside trap and shot wide with just De Gea to beat

No creativity
Always reacting and never anticipating


PATHETIC... like my computer

LVG needs to stop taking notes. You don't need a legal pad to see what's wrong with United.

8:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Will LVG even be in charge for the match on Monday?

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A corner from Blind is carried by thew wind and headed out by a man bun

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The next one is headed out by Whelan , the first man. It's quite obvious which way the wind is blowing.

8:24 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

No danger caused by United at all!!

Wonder if Mustoe will change his tune at half time


Don't care where they are in the league.... they ARE NOT PLAYING THE UNITED WAY

This goes back way before SAF. As I stated before, Sexton got the axe after seven straight wins to end the season... it wasn't done the United way

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

All the waterlogged pitches are in the Northwest of England . Rather interesting.

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I did some research last night. Prior to that run they drew eighteen matches and scored very few goals. The number one defense despite being eighth in the table. That doesn't sound too different from this edition of United.

8:27 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I'd fire LVG on the way back to the dressing room... lock him out !


Last time United came back from two down to win was in 2013... on Boxing Day... it aint happening today

8:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

One goal back for United before the interval would turn this one around. Hair Bear nearly got onto that cross.

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sexton was sacked because Martin Edwards had just become the new owner and had the sense to see that United weren't playing the right way. A certain Mr. woodward seems to be bloody clueless. That's part of the problem

8:28 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Nice research.... they were better than this lot

8:28 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

LOL! Van Gaal definitely got a lump of coal in his stocking from you, UWS.

8:28 AM

Hair Bear is called for a push off the next corner . Idiot! A complete waste.,

The second half is underway as both sides have made a change. Van Ginkel is on for Whelan. Who did Roon replace.

He's on for D 3.14. The first correct decision of the day by LVG

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Did anyone see the graphic for the first Stoke goal. Memphis was 25 yards from De Gea, but the back header went a mere three yards. I bet it was really 3.14 yards and rounded to the nearest whole number by NBC

OH!!!! what a save by Butland from Hair Bear off a run and pass by Roon. Better from United.

Shawcross is a great Martial Arts student as he easily tackles Kung Fu Panda off a nice pass from Blind.

Herrera is fouled by Van Ginkel.

9:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sorry, mate. I was just reminding myself of how great player he used to be.

Shawcross easily heads away the free kick from Roon. the former United trainee is defending better than any of the United back four.

I think talking about United squad's is ridiculous. Excuses. You've got England's top scorer of all time, the Premiership's best goalkeeper, plus a load of internationals. Whereas Leicester have got few if any internationals and they're playing out of their skins.

United are now sixth and a win by Watford and United would be seventh... Moyes territory

Oh - Martial nearly steered one in past Butland but the big Stoke keeper did well to tip it around.

Great by Butland to chop that shot around the post. Affellay breaks from the United corner. De Gea easily saves from Bojhan

Watford could win at the Bridge.
