The Best Day of the Season!

The FA Cup may have been degraded over the years by any number of modern football trends, but the 3rd Round Saturday is still for my money the best day of the season. I'm here early doors to enjoy the return of Jaap Stam to Old Trafford as United host Reading at 7:30am. Then it's the flood of crazy fixtures from around the country at 10am. At 12:30, we've got Arsenal's tricky fixture at Preston North End. Can you smell the romance in the air? Join me with a cuppa, won't you?

Morning, chaps - is Jaap Stam the greatest ever United defender? Discuss....

7:22 AM

Fox Soccer Channel is trying to learn from NBC Sports, showing the teams coming out of the tunnel now:

Manchester United (4-2-3-1) Romero; Young, Smalling, Rojo, Blind; Carrick, Fellaini; Mata, Rooney, Martial; Rashford.
Substitutes: Pogba, Ibrahimovic, Mkhitaryan, Schweinsteiger, Fosu-Mensah, Jones, J Pereira.

Reading (4-3-3) Al-Habsi; Gunter, Van Den Berg, L Moore, Blackett; Evans, Williams, Kelly; Beerens, Kermorgant, McCleary.
Substitutes: S Moore, Cooper, Swift, Obita, Samuel, Meite, Watson.

The coverage of the tunnel walk out may be better but we've still got to deal with Big Red, Alexi and Big Brad as studio pundits today.

Morning boys
Couldn't get much sleep last night but Im up as the teams come out of the tunnel
Here comes Jap..I'm sure he'll get a good ovation


Of course, FOXs coverage sucks!

That music is FOX's isn't it?

Could Rooney take over Sir Bobby in the FA Cup



We are off

Guy Mobray and Clive Allen on the microphones. I'm trying to get adjusted to this Fox coverage, as the match gets underway.

7:30 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That's great to hear... a packed Old Trafford...

Rashford with an early shot...that's what I like... take em on and shoot

7:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, UWS - sorry to hear about your insomnia, but I'm happy to have the pleasure of your company this morning. Welcome!

7:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning , chaps . As I type United have a chance early doors as Rash shoots just wide after Roon flicked on the ball.

7:31 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

ooh, Rooney almost gets his 249th

7:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Al Habsi saves from Roon,

7:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - United are out of the traps quickly with two early chances. First Kung Fu and then Rooney are in on goal. Al Habsi gets down well.

7:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, MUR - welcome. How are you feeling about this one?

7:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We're thoroughly snowed in here in WNY, so there is nothing else to do but watch a full day of footer. That's my excuse anyway.

7:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Two shot inside the first two minutes...that's more like it

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry about the insomnia. I had it the other night, so I know how unpleasant that can be. I hope United will play well enough to keep you up.

7:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

How much snow did you get? We got nothing from this storm. We had rain during the week so most of the snow on the ground is gone

7:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I actually had the opposite problem. It's our coldest morning in several years and I didn't want to get up, but United are playing, so here we are.

7:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just checked. It's 31 outside , but the win chill is 18. Far below normal for us.

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

There are only 24 days left to offload Fellaini... fingers crossed

7:36 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

YES!!

ROONEY SCORES NUMBER 249!!!!!

7:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! THERE IT IS! HE'S REACHED THE RECORD. 249! ROONEY!

7:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

This is how United should always play.... right at them

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! ROON EQUALS SIR BOBBY'S RECORS

7:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That was coming - the Championship side was under the cosh from the off. Sir Bobby is delighted in the stands.

7:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I still don't like Rooney over taking Charlton

7:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Scoring inside the first 10 minutes... that's more like it

7:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

If only you could play a rubbish Championship side at home every weekend, eh? This opening is exposing the obvious gulf in quality between divisions. That's my fear about the possibility of promotion this season.

7:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That was the predatory Roon of old. Tw solo running karate chops occurred. the first one was cleared as Welsh international, Chris Gunter, was schooled being turned inside out. He passed to Mata and Roon diverted his shot in the corner past Al Habsi

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

Carrick with a weak effort but again United go at them with pace

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

way to get it wrong colorman

7:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wayne is saluting the memory of George Michael - his favorite pop star. RIP George, eh Wazza?

7:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carrick dragged a long range effort wide then Yash wins a corner

7:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Clive Allen got it totally wrong there - said it was the "Record Breaker," then had to retract quickly.

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mata volleys well wide after the corner was headed out.

7:41 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I'm please how United have started but of course a second goal has to be scored... haven't been able to do that as of late

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He sure did . it tied the record. Unusual by the normally reliably Clive.

7:42 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Up next for United....eight days time... a small match vs Liverpool... a win and United will still have a say this season

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

Kung Fu tries a cheeky little chip but Al Habsi had no difficulty with that one. United are cutting through the Reading defense like a hot knife through butter.

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A karate chop is a weak chop is a weak chip to Al Habsi

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

United players are lining up for shots now - Reading seem completely overawed.

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, UWS. Also, Leeds have matches on both Friday and Monday this week.

7:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Is that at Old Trafford or Anfield, UWS?

7:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

YES!!!!!!!!

Martial!!!!

I know its Reading but going forward and going forward with pace

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! THE READING RAILROAD IS STEAMROLLED BY A KARATE CHOP AS THEY GO TWO UP.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It came off a one two with Roon and a deflected effort past Al Habsi. The move started with a throw in midfield.

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

Of course, Reading won 3-2 after being two nil down at Ashton Gate last match

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

Can Unite do one better that Citeh and hit their opponents for Six

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The match is at OT. Also, we have an EFL semi against the manager less Tigers on Tuesday.

7:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This is all too easy. I went away for a moment to refill my cuppa and Kung Fu has added a second.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think half a dozen is realistic based on this start. I don't even see the Reading Railroad getting out of their half three times, let alone scoring three.

7:48 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Who is hurt.
Jones about to come on for Rojo... United had been doing well with him and Jones in the back


Is Young crippled too

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Don't feel bad, mate. The same happened to me on the first goal. Good thing there is the DVR.

7:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Rojo has got a problem here and may have to come off. He is trudging off, to be replaced by Phil Jones. Not exactly part of Mou's script for today.

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jones on for the injured Rojo.

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Japp was booted out of United as a player and looks set to have the same done as a manager. His return to the Theater of Dreams is a real nightmare.

If the Nocito Curse occurs when UWS is in the bog, the Dahlgren Curse is when I'm getting a snack or refilling my cup.

A rare foray for Reading in the United box - cleared out by Carrick.

7:51 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Reading almost in there... don't give them a sniff please

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carrick desperately clears on the Railroad's first attack.

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

Agreed, MUR - it's boys against men so far.

7:51 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

almost in again..

7:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

United were away again and Kung Fu ran the whole length of the pitch and was a bit greedy to take the shot. Al Habsi nearly allowed it to trickle through him.

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United break of the Railroad's first corner and Rash shoots right at Al Habsi

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I was a victim of the Dahlgren curse.

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I wonder if SAF must be laughing inside at Jaap. I wonder if he must be enjoying this. Surely, he must have told Jose to give it to Jaap's chaps.

7:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I do not like this trend at United of converting older wingers into fullbacks. First Valencia and now Ashley Young. They're not proper defenders.

7:54 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

oooh, Reading should have scored there

They are going to do another Ashton Gate!

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Liam Moore misses a sitter there. Jaap isn't happy.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Jones blocks for a Railroad corner. Liam Moore diverts a volley form Van Den Berg wide . Great out swinger.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Liam Moore was more like Dudley with that effort.

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

Rashford into the side netting!

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

Oh - Rash was around Al-Habsi but then found the side setting with his effort.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Rash by Rash as he was superbly put through, rounded Al Habsi and shot into the side netting. United should have been three up.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW!! 9-0 in shots . Talk about a thrashing.

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

Citeh were 2-0 up at a similar stage yesterday; do you predict a 5-0 finish here?

7:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yeah - the Reading defense are looking as porous as a block of finest Ementhal here. They're being run ragged.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Besid e AL Habsi, the other big names for Jaap's Chaps are Tyler Blackett, who flopped in his few appearances for United, German born Yank international, Danny Williams , and Chris Gunter, who played for wales in the Euros.

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

Kelly has been the only danger for Reading down the right side. Got in behind there.

8:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Rooney tries a Cantona from just outside the area. He doesn't quite have the skill...or the collar for that one.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Roon chips just over after a poor clearance from Van Den Berg.

8:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Jaap needs a warmer jacket...and a decent defense. He'll catch his death today.

8:02 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Rash almost in again... come on Marcus hit the old onion bag

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

Rash is in again but Al-Habsi closes his down well. The keeper is keeping Reading in this one.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! AL Habsi out to block from Rash for a corner as he was put through yet again. The corner is out for another.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gunter heads out for another. and this time Yash is called for a foul.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Actually, Yash wins a free kick.

8:05 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Free kick for United... Mata takes...straight into wall
Wazza should have taken it

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into the wall by Mata.

8:06 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Fellaini acting like an idiot again

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YIKES!!!! It's 29 outside with a wind chill of 15. That's far below normal for us.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, UWS.

Reading, not Reading, an article on the Daily Mail website about Tommy Doc
He said that he wanted to sign Shilton from Stoke but Sir Matt didn't want to play a keeper 100 quid a week
He also tried to sign Charlie Cooke from Chelsea AND Tony Currie from Sheff Utd but they wanted 50 grand

8:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ah - Kung Fu ran through the Reading defense and found Mata but the ball was just slightly behind him. Ballooned it over.

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's supposed to be sunny and reach 50 this afternoon, so it will feel warmer by then

8:13 AM

8:14 AM

Great anoraking , UWS. You all will be interested to know that he's still married to the same woman , which resulted in that United exit. It seems well worth it as they should be close to celebrating 40 years

Two minutes of stoppage time.

I will be mum about the rest of the week, mate.

8:16 AM

United are two up at the half on Jaap's return to OT thanks to early goals by Roon and a karate chop.

8:17 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Oh why oh why did United only draw at home to Burnley, Stoke, Arsenal and West Ham?
All should have been won... 8 more points!!
Near the top of the table


Half time... Fox turn off the sound one second later!

Good half from United. No complaints here

8:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Half-time at OT then. Reading Railroad have experienced a derailment as United have cut through them again and again. They can just pick their spot in the second half and rotate some players out for the Liverpool match now.

8:18 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Just wanted to answer Bob's first question of the day...Jap was a great player for United but wasn't here long enough.... he should never have left

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I don't understand how FOX decides which matches to broadcast. The 10 AMERs are both Conference vs L1 contests when there were better choices available.

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with UWS. He was great , but wasn't there long enough to be considered the greatest United defender.

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jaap makes a change as Jordan Obita is on as a sub. The second half is underway

8:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

We are off for the second half

Please don't sit back

8:33 AM

Because they are Fox

He's on for former United reject, Tyler Blackett, who was almost invisible.

8:34 AM

Back at it - United straight into attack again - a half chance for Roon.

8:35 AM

YIKES!!!! Carrick and lone striker, Kermorgant are down after a clash of heads.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Glad to see Carrick is finally back up and is applauded by the United fans.

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

Blackett didn't really distinguish himself on his return to OT.

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

United had 18 shots in the first half...LVG days we had none

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

Carrick has been patched up Frankenstein style and is back in action.

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with UWS. That the 10 AM coverage is not very Foxy. They could be airing the Toffees vs the Foxes, the Saints vs the Canaries, and/or Fat Sam's return to Bolton. There's also the Tigers vs the Swans, who both have recently sacked their managers. Fred says the Black Cats vs Burley would be even better

I remember that Roma match - Rooney scored a similar goal to the one he scored today.

Rooney misses it from six... great pass by Rashford but Fellaini has no left with the cross

8:43 AM

Al Habsi saves from Hair Beat then British Rail scramble away the loose ball.

8:43 AM

Al Habsi drops one and that could have easily been number three. United could be 8-0 up by now.

The Reading shirts are a travesty. Not only do they have some crap advertisement on the front of the shirt but they've got "Waitrose" plastered on the shoulders, just above the players names. No wonder they're losing.

Did you buy a snowblower?

Ta, UWS. It seems like everyone has scored against them the past few years. Bob's choice was not far off.

8:57 AM

No - I like the exercise (honestly).

That's a great explanation, Bob.

8:58 AM

Decent spell here for Reading but they're not really threatening, are they?

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

We don't have snow. Even though it's below freezing, we don't have any frost due to the wind and lack of humidity.

8:59 AM

I was close with West Ham. I remember that that Roony/Ronaldo side liked to tonk the Hammers quite a bit.

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

3 feet is a little too much exercise

9:00 AM

After that spell of pressure, United have won some corners. United pass all the way back to Cesar Romero after the corner was headed away

9:02 AM

A couple of corners for United come to nothing. The edge has gone from this match, and it’s essentially a training session for both teams now.

First goal for Rash since September. Great ball from Head Wound Boy. And that's the end of Carrick's day.

A double substitution for United. First , Samuuel is on for striker Kermorgant. Now the United changes. Fosu-Mensah on for Carrick and the Pig Stick on for Mata as United go from one holding middie to two as they are now three up.

GOAL! Goals like busses for Rash. Al Habsi makes a mess of the clearance and Rash says, "ta very much."

Beasant almost laughing about it


Love to Rashford score his first United hat-trick or Rooney's 250th... they both have a full 90 minutes
That doesn't happen often for Rash or Martial either
