Saturday's Alright for Subbing

A very good Saturday morning, lads! Welcome to what promises to be a fascinating day of top-level Premiership footer. We start with the tantalizing tie of Manchester United and Leicester at Old Trafford. That takes us up to the 10am EST kickoffs, including Liverpool v. Hull and Swansea v. Citeh. And we end with another biggie - Arsenal and Chelsea from the Emirates. Join me, won't you?

Are you sitting down? Okay, then - Wayne Rooney, icon of English footer, has been named on the substitutes list for this morning's match. That makes sense from the perspective of his actual play but it's still a big-balls move from Mou. Wow!

7:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, mate. I agree with the move too. Then he basically said that Roon was dropped because he's too slow and Little Joe had a an evil look of satisfaction on his face. I like it.

7:21 AM

The Little Neviller and presumably the Ginger Ninja agree,

Morning mate
I'm still upstairs and on my phone
As for Rooney, I'm surprised that he has been dropped. I haven't been a fan of his for a while but I think he hasn't been playing any worse.
Not sure Mata is the answer.
Miki is the one that needs to play there.
Where does Pogpants play? What is his position ? He's supposed to be really good !

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, UWS. Roon could also lose a stone and I'm not talking gall stones or kidney stones.

7:26 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Is Miki hurt or is he in the Jose doghouse with Shaw

7:26 AM

Morning, lads - great to have both of you on board for this one. should be a cracker!

The players are out on the pitch wearing shorts with the names of children that are guests at the match. Nothing like confusing everyone, but Arlo says they will change shirts. If they didn't have too then I could play in a match and have Nocito written on the back of my Man Yoo jersey

7:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Arlo said that Shaw is out injured or is it that he didn't Shaw up the defense?

7:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roon seems perfectly happy in his new role, sharing a laugh with Carrick and they're off from OT

COME ON MAN UNITED!

Good to see both sides in their traditional kits.

United should be faster without Roon in the lineup. It's like Usain Bolt replacing an arthritic granny with an attitude.

7:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers, Bob. UWS acting too much like Roon, LOL. Not too early because I've had some coffee. It kicks in faster than Roon does in an entire season combined.,

7:33 AM

Miki isn't on the bench
Is he hurt
Not a dangerous bench

7:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

With his extra weight, Roon will hold down the bench with no problems whatsoever.

7:35 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

GO FORWARD
WITH PACE!!!

7:35 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Rash is the only one to attack

7:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm not sure why Miki did't make the bench. I hope he's not like the last player we signed from Dortmund, who just happened to play his position.

7:36 AM

Of course Valence doesn't get cross over

7:37 AM

Vlaencia wins a corner off of Fuchs.Ron Robert punches away the corner then a cross is headed away and volleyed high and wide by Zlatan

Hair Bear can be a useful target man if you need a late goal.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

IS Roon on the bench for being a Fatty or for smoking a fatty? Does anyone know?

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The through ball from Zlatan is just too long for Rash.

True, but he's always inches away from an early bath too.

Did anyone see United play Northants at Sixfields just down the road from Leicester? I did and they were useless for large periods of the match. Northants looked more the Prem team for part of the match

I've never heard of this Slimani bloke before - have you?

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He's a new signing and made his debut in the CL match at Brugges. He scored twice on his Prem debut vs Burnley last weekend. Sounds like a useful signing and gives extra competition for places up front.

7:46 AM

Something annoys me these days
Leicester are mostly called the PL Champions
NO they are the Champions of England

There is a nice cut and thrust to this match but we haven't really seen any chances on goal yet.

GOAL! As I type, Smalling rises to nod home a corner from Daley Blind.

1-0 United!

Novel idea...put in a decent header

From a decent corner

Roon was dropped and stripped of the captaincy and the new captain scores . Lovely!

Pogs fouls Islam. I think that's a French connection.

The free kick from Mahrez is headeed out for a corner.

7:54 AM

Nice break there from United - shame that Rashford couldn't control the pass from Zlatan.

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

Great break from United
Rash was a bit rash at the end
Shame

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner from Albrighton is headed away. Now Zlatan is set through on a counter and puts forth a great pass to Rash, whose touch lets him down and he slices it horribly into Row M past the on rushing Ron Robert.

7:56 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I like that Roon was dropped by his replacement is just as slow

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Rash is over with a bicycle kicks off a pass from Pogs.

7:56 AM

Oooh
Great play from the two newbies
Pass chest volley
What a shame

7:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great control from Zlatan but then he turned and blasted over the top. Should have been on target.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Pogs plays in a superb pass and Zlatan chests the pass then volleys just over with just Ron Robert to beat

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United would be two up but for some Rash finishing.

7:58 AM

Who is just as slow as Roon? I don't see any replacements that are as slow as Roon nor that look like they've been into the kidney pies.

Great hit by Pogs

Much better from United since the goal

Zlatan is offside off a cross from Pogs, who is having his best match for United since his debut.

8:02 AM

MUR, your Champions pick look really impressive. I just hope they keep slipping up at places like Turf Moor
They've already visited the Em, WHL and SB and didn't lose

8:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with the Little Neviller that Claudio will probably read his players the riot act at the half.

8:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Leicester look a shadow of the side that ran away with the title last season, despite having nearly the same side. They've been reduced to Christian Fuchs lobbing aimless long throws from distance. Sad.

8:04 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Back to the Roon comment
Mata is just as slow as him

8:04 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Get Lingard off

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's why I picked them. I don't want them to be champs , but sadly think they will. If you think about it, they are in a similar position to the Foxes of last season. That was my line of thinking when I made the pick. I think they will be neck and neck with Citeh as the season progresses.

8:06 AM

YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! MATA PUTS UNITED TWO UP.

8:06 AM

Yes
Great goal from Mata

United lulled the foxes asleep with lots of short passes then all of a sudden Mata played a one two with Lingard and scored with a nice finish past Ron Robert.

Three goals from corners from the same side. All Mou had to do is get Blind to take the corners, eh?

Definitely moire like it. See what happens when you drop Roon?

I should have predicted Leicester this season, not last! I was only a year off!

8:13 AM

Agreed. A hat-trick of goals from corners. Correct, mate, It was like we had been running down a blind alley from corners prior to this match

8:13 AM

The Foxes have done well at home. For some reason they are poor on their travels. I think their home form will keep them up.

United four up at the half with three from corners. Their best half in ages.

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Very much so and glad to see how much better we are without Roon in the side.

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Modern footballers are idiots. Andre Gary, the Burnley striker, begins a four match ban for offensive Twitter posts. The last thing Burnley needs. Not any smarter than Andy Gray, who was also a striker for a team in claret and sky blue.

8:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Robbie Mustoe attributes United's four goal lead to playing faster football. Uws says they're playing with more pace. I agree with Robbie.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Claudio makes a double substitution as Andy King and Damari Gray are on for Vardy and Mahrez. WOW!!!!! IOf that doesn't send a message nothing will and they've been out on the pitch for five minutes. Is he a bit pissed?

8:33 AM

The second half is underway

Naughty by Huth on Pogs, which results in the first booking of the match.

I don't want to put these four goals just down to Roon not playing

8:39 AM

I'm sure Little Joe will be taking notes of the poor behavior on the bench

8 goals in 15 appearances... not too shabby Marcus

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

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

True, but it's a good part of the reason that we're ahead. Robbie says we're playing faster football.

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

Well - you have to admit that Blind's corners have been more effective than Roon's were, right?

8:40 AM

Zlatan with no goal yet... he must be pissed

8:41 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I am too...he's my GB

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Zlatan heads wide from a cross from Pogs as he was pressured by Huth. Amarty gifted the ball to United

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, Fat Sam would be a fat not to pick and play Rash, but he is anyway

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Opponents were intentionally conceding corners, knowing that United wouldn't score from them

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Are you surprised that Vardy and Mahrez were subbed at the half? Claudio says if Jose can bench Roon then I can bench Vardy and Mahrez.

8:44 AM

Hendo is full of beans after that cracker last weekend. He tries a full volley from 30 yards. No this time, mate.

Oh - great move there from Pool but the finish was tame. Cleared off the line.

Number One Son has put Tottenham Hotspur a goal up against Middlesbrough with his third goal of the season. Seven minutes is all it took for the deadlock to be broken, due in no small part to some atrocious defending by Middlesbrough. Victor Valdes got a hand to the ball, but couldn’t keep out Son’s shot.

Yes!!!

Aguero blasts the ball through Lukasz Fabianski’s legs to give Manchester City an early lead against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. That's his fifth of the season - he's level with Costa again.
