The First Super Sunday!

Morning, chaps! It's our first very special Sunday morning in the Premiership this morning. We start on the South Coast with United's opening visit to Bournemouth. How will the new look Mourinho United turn out? Will Bournemouth suffer a sophomore slump? Then it's the big one - Arsenal hosting Liverpool, two of the the perennial heavyweights. The outcome of this one will tell us a lot about their fortunes for the new season. Join me for all the fun here on the LOB!

When these two sides last met, they ended the 2015/16 Premier League season with a whimper. United won a hastily rearranged, poorly attended fixture, sealing their Europa League status but harming Louis van Gaal’s Cup final preparations. It was less than three months ago.

Rooney slow off the mark, as per usual. I read an interesting article in When Saturday Comes yesterday that suggested that Rooney continues to be included because United's Chinese interests need him as an iconic player to sell their products. Crazy!

8:34 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I was

8:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

An early chance for the Cherries as Charlie Daniels was played down the left. His cross was misjudged by Luke Shaw and Callum Wilson blasted over from close range

8:35 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Yikes!!

8:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I expect a tough match. United have lost their last two matches here.

8:36 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Why doesn't he just bugger off to China

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

United's backline look a wee bit nervous so far.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It doesn't surprise me . I read that Roon is included in the starting lineup because it's in his contract that he has to play so many matches and train with the first team. Is that true?

8:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Valencia isn't a full back!!


Leeds get a mention

8:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Vitality is such a small ground that you can hear individual people clapping in the background.

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. He should dig a hole to China and follow that path.

8:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'd rather not talk about Leeds - we've had a wretched start to the season. We're second bottom today.

8:38 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Put Roon in the midfield for Fellaini
Bring in Pogba for Herrera
Bring in Miki in Roons spot
Rash on the right

8:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Improvement from last week
You were bottom

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. There's a cozy, lower division, family atmosphere about it. They seem to bve enjoying themselves.

8:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That sounds about right. Why aren't you the boss at United, UWS?

8:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not impressed so far

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. If UWS were in charge at OT then I would pick them to win the title.

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

Bailly looks really raw to me - I can't believe that they spent £44 million on him.

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A rash challenge by United debutant, Bailly on former United trainee, Josh King

8:42 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Valencia gets over a cross
Ibra almost gets on end of it
Headaches all round

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A clash of heads between Zlatan and Simon Francis at he far post. It looks like Simon Francis got the worse of it.

8:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I suppose that's true, mate - we were tanked 3-0 this week. We'll need something against Fulham midweek, otherwise we go into a big match against Not a Big Club next weekend with three losses on the trot and Gary Monk's job up for grabs.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A surprisingly decent cross by Valencia.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think that match at Hillsborough is an early kickoff. It will be a tough one and is probably BEIN shown on the telly.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cherries fans are mocking United and why not?

8:46 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Sad that it is Valencia getting it over
United need an attacking wide man

Rash comes to mind
I hope Rash plays a part this season
It is deserved

8:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United don't look dangerous at all
Not as much passing around the back tho

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with you about Rash and about the passing around. Jose is not into the Tiki Taka. Citeh will be the Manc club to be playing that way based on what Bob and I saw yesterday.

8:49 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

None too pleased at the moment

8:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yes - our local derbies are always police-enforced early kick-offs. It should be televised.

8:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Andre Marriner is trying not to book players right now. I don't like this kind of game management from refs. If the foul is bad enough, it deserves a card. Full stop.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree, mate. Top flight players need to be accountable for their action just as players at pub level are

8:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Both sides just giving the ball away too cheaply.

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jordan Ibe is a decent signing for the Cherries and a sign that they plan to be in the Prem for quite a while.

8:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Martial cuts inside from the left and fizzes a curler well wide.

8:54 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Shot at goal
Not that close by Martial

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well wide by kung fu panda . Quite an erratic karate chop.

8:54 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Too much damn passing !!!!

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The announcer says that Roon is quite a vital artery to United. I would say more like a hemorrhoid or wart.

8:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

First decent move ends with a tame shot by Roon that Boruc saves easily.

8:56 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Finally a good move
Tame short by Roon

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Better from United . Roon with a chance that was easily saved by Boruc, but at least it's a chance.

8:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I agree, MUR - what to do with Rooney is Mourinho's biggest challenge. I'm not sure he has it in him to drop Roon.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Valencia wins a corner off of Charlie Daniels after tons of passes. Boruc easily catches the corner from Mata

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LVG's last Prem match in charge of United was vs the Cherries as is Jose's first, but at different venues.

9:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Simon Francis with a textbook karate chop.

9:00 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I don't like how Jose came in and said Roon isn't a middie
He was playing well there

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers, mate. I wonder if he would even be allowed to drop Roon before his contract expires.

9:01 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

So much for Zlatan s scoring 4
Hardly touched the ball

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Harry Arter is over with a long range effort.

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Has he even had four touches?

9:03 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I like the look of Bailey

9:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roon has a shot blocked for a corner off as run and pass from Kung Fu Panda.

9:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boruc does well to catch the corner from Roon.

9:04 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United should now be dangerous at set pieces...but they aren't

9:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

If I hadn't had a good night's sleep, I'd be struggling to stay awake through this one, lads. It hasn't been a classic.

Not the United of old
Sigh

No point waking him up either

Useless by Herrera

I'm back from a trip to the bog to see that I missed absolutely nothing

9:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Zlatan did much the same last weekend. One classic header won the match, though.

9:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! One suicidal backpass and Mata nipped in to score United's opening goal of the season!

9:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Yes!!
What a couple of errors
Total gift

9:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

One more goal and United are top

9:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY!!!! DOES A CHERRIES ERROR MATA? IT SURE DOES AS SIMON FRANCIS LOOKED MORE LIKE ANNE FRANCIS. FIRST, A POOR BACK PASS FROM FRANCIS , A SAVE BY BORUC AT THE FEET OF A MATA THEN ANOTHER GIFT FROM FRANCIS THAT MATA TUCKED IN FROM A FEW FEET OUT

9:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Quite ironic as the first goal of the Jose error was scored by Mata, one of the first players that Jose sent packing at Chelsea.

9:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I was surprised to see Mata on the team sheet today, after last week. Jose stuck him on in the second half and then yanked him off with only moments to go in the match. Maybe that goal will change Jose's mind about the man?

9:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

He was player of the year for Jose
It just soured

9:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Has Rooney played a ball forward yet?

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Two minutes of stoppage time/

9:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Mata would be in my team before Roon

9:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United have no interest in scoring again before half

9:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United are one up at the half to start the Jose era thanks to a gift by Simon Francis and a goal by Mata , a player he sent packing at Chelsea.

9:18 AM

Hi Guys . Hope you are all well . Sorry I haven't posted yet but I am reading all of it . Keep up the good work .

Good afternoon, Chelskilad. Great to hear from you.

9:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Football, it’s a Funny Old Game: how many times could Louis van Gaal have done with a stroke of luck like that presented to Juan Mata, during one of his trademark teeth-grindingly dull draws? Poor old Louis. I wonder what he’s up to right now.

9:32 AM

HIya, Chelskilad - great to hear from you.

The second half is underway from the Vitality Stadium

So we're away again at the Vitality.

He's probably on gardening leave where he may have a green thumb.

9:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I have a feeling that United will be grinding out results this season

9:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Clumsy by Bailey on Josh King.

9:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bailly is a bit of a bull in a china shop right now. Marriner's had a lot of patience.

9:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Rooney was in there of the second - well saved by Boruc.

9:38 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Great pass by Z
Useless by Roon

9:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boruc does well to block a close range effort from Roon off a pass from Zlatan , who makes his first contribution of the match

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

UWS must be really fed up - he's buggered off, probably for a walkies with Shadow.

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

Rooney goes down in the area - Marriner not impressed by the performance.

9:39 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Roon down
No pen

9:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I'm here

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A pathetic fall by Roon, trying to win a penalty

9:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Why didn't Roon try and shoot

9:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The match has at least opened up a bit.

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jordan Ibe has a shot blocked by Blind for a corner.Taken short. Mata tackles one of the cooks.

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roon should be at the Olympics because he would probably win a medal in one of the diving events.

9:42 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I used to like Herrera
He stinks of late

9:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I have observed over the years that Jose's teams are know for gamesmanship. I expect that from United and Roon does not need to be asked twice as witnessed a few minutes ago.

9:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Roon stops all the attacking flow

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. I wonder if he will last more than a season under Jose.

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If asked that question in a press conference, Jose will say that all his teams play that way, but we know the truth of the Mata.

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

GOAL! Rooney chips in with United's second.

9:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Two nil
Roon with a decent effort from a miss hit
United are top

9:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY!!!! UNITED GO TWO UP. VALENCIA PLAYED DOWN THE RIGHT . HIS CROSS WAS MET BY AN ERRANT KARATE CHOP THEN DIVERTED IN WITH A CLOSE RANGE HEADER BY ROON.

9:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Quite a jammy goal there, with the ball ping ponging all over the place in Bournemouth's area before Rooney finally nodded home.

9:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Decent header there

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think United have clinched a win since the Cherries have been toothless in attack today and don't look like scoring. I can't recall De Gea having to make a save today

9:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice little turn and run by Kung Fu Panda before being chopped down by Sermon.

New season, same old UWS. You're 0-3 up, top of the league, playing well. But not good enough.

9:55 AM

A double change for the Cherries .First , the Cherries hope that Lewis will be Grabban a goal as he's on for Callum Wilson and Afobe on for Jordan Ibe, who did not impress on his debut

9:56 AM

According to the bbc, zlatan hasn't touched the back inside the box

9:59 AM

I don't think I will change my picks. It didn't really make much difference last year and let's see how United do against more difficult opposition than the Cherries.

Here comes Miki

10:02 AM

Mik becomes the first Armenian to play in the Prem as he's on for Mata, who gets a pat on the back from Jose for a job well done.

10:03 AM

10:03 AM

Mik for Mat?

Bournemouth giving it their all right now. Another goal back might make the final five minutes lively.

He did as one former ER player replaced another. Two Cooks meant that too many cooks spoiled the broth.

OH!!! De Gea does well to turn around a shot from Surman . That leads to a short corner. Did Gea get away with a foul? United finally clear and the final whistle blows. United start the Jose era with a 1-3 win at the Vitality Stadium
