Why can't Luke Shaw get a game?

We've got two competing threads this morning, chaps (and I was starting one but deleted it!). Which one are we going to use?

Morning MUR

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's United's third match since Monday. They must be ready for a break.,

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

Looks like we are all on this one

8:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It seems United may be playing 4-4-2, with Bailly at right-back, Young at left-back and Valencia at right midfield.

8:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, chaps. Great to join you on an early Sunday morning.

8:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Works for me.

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

United have started on the back foot

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

First corner for Boro - they go short and it comes to nothing.

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

United can't get the ball out of their own half!

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

Any thoughts about Aitor Karanka?

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I know he was Jose's assistant at Real. If Ranieri could get the sack then I guess Aitar could . The announcer mentioned that the players weren't happy with him, so I guess in this era that means he goes.

8:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Rash was in on goal but Valdes kept him out.

8:07 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Rashford misses a one v one... WHY!!!!

Just slide it in!

8:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I suppose it does - player power, eh?

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United should have taken the lead on their first attack of the match as Rash was through with just Valdes to beat, but it was saved by the keeper.

8:07 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Karaoke was almost out of the door earlier in the season. He wasn't in charge for a game.
I always feel bad for managers that do the hard work and bring teams up the Premier League. They struggle and get the boot

Managers should be successful in the Championship but just slip up in the play offs...you'll keep your job

Monk?

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boro players seem to be up for the match with the interim manager in charge. . Will that last the entire match?

8:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Fellaini closes a guy down in the corner then kicks it out... try and kick it off the guy

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ledbitter shoots well over from long range off a poor United clearance.

8:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United have started poorly again

8:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Why oh why couldn't Marcus scored!!!

8:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Gaston pulls a great save out of Twilight.

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gaston Ramirez cuts inside Bailey and De Gea does well to turn around his shot.

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

I would hope that Gary Monk would keep his job if we fell short in the playoffs. He's been a revelation for us!

8:13 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

When I have been listening to callers on the radio, so many times Boro fans call and say they don't get a shot on goal all game....they sure have today

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If Boro play at the Riverside does that mean they have been drowning?

8:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh dear - Valencia was able to get to that ball but then he ballooned the cross over to no one.

8:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I think he would too
I am saying if they make it up and then struggle

I was saying that it is better for managers in the Championship just miss promotion instead of going up

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yes. That's a welcome change because that may have lasted the remainder of the season.

8:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

You've started early this morning, mate. Boom boom!

8:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I refuse to comment

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YIKES!!!! The team with the worst attack in the league has 75% possession against us. That makes us look really pathetic.

8:16 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

We are!!

8:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I just don't understand it. It's a miracle for a club to get out o the Championship and they should expect to go straight back down the first season. It's a huge leap.

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

Only club of the bottom 6 that hasn't changed their manager is the BOTTOM one

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

All this short passes back and sideways ends up with De Gea who hits it long!!

8:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers, Bob. Stuart Ten Downing Street was not signing any karaoke songs about Aitar being the Prime Minister.

8:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

When he was first in the country, Mourinho used to be all about sharp Italian suits and London Fog overcoats. Now he's dressing like Tony Pulis - what's happened to the man?!

8:18 AM

United being dominated

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

Ouch - the puns are hurting my head!

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The only reason that the Black Cats haven't made a change is that they've made so many in recent years. I guess they want to start with some continuity.

8:19 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Rash picks out Lingard...no he doesn't
Corner

This will come to nothing

8:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Hair Bear puts a routine header over the bar from the corner.

8:20 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Finally a long corner to the middle
Fellaini heads over... he used to knock those in wearing Everton colors...especially against United

8:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jose may not have a suit budget at United or he may be a closet Pulis fan. Not sure why. Was he dressing for success?

8:20 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Boro's keeper was frozen out by LVG, wasn't he?

8:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He hurt United against Everton when he conceded that late penalty.

8:21 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Rash tries to find Lingard again... attack the ball

8:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He sure was, but he was never going to start ahead of De Gea.

8:21 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not enough blue shirts are in the box

8:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

For reasons that are beyond me Ramirez, having been a major influence on the opening sixth of the game from the left wing, has been moved to the right.

8:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yash takes the next corner and it's cleared by Negredo.

8:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

For all Boro's pressure, Negredo seems to have hardly touched the ball.

8:23 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Valdes with a super double save there from Rash and Valencia.

8:23 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

BLOODY HELL

Rashford with a shot....great save.. twice


WHY OH WHY!!!!!


8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Great double saves by Valdes, first form Rash then from Valencia.

8:23 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Why can't keepers drop clangers against United....ala Stoke's keeper yesterday

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

After surviving early Boro pressure, United are starting to dominate and have had the best chances.

8:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Phil Jones picks up a yellow there - seemed soft to me.

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Phil Jones booked for a foul on Negredo.

8:25 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Phil Jones gets a yellow...he is ignorant

Why bother doing that? The player was no where near getting the balll


MORONS

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. It's upsetting when players do everything they can to get their opponents booked. It's cheating, IMHO.

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Useless pass from Valencia to end what looked a promising attack.

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

United should have done better than that

Useless by Valencia

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

Where are players that can put the ball in the net???

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Will Ledbitter be celebrating with some bitter after the match or will defeat leave a bitter taste in his mouth?

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Rash is supposed to be able to score, but he must have forgotten. Does he miss LVG?

8:29 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! United take the lead through Hair Bear. It was coming!

8:29 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

YES!!!
Finally

Decent cross and great header by Fellaini

NOW SCORE MORE

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!HAIR BEAR WITH HIS FIRST LEAGUE GOAL OF THE SEASON AS HE SCORES WITH A FAR POST HEADER OFF A GREAT CROSS FROM YASH. HE BEAT FORMER UNITED DEFENDER, FABIO.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

How will Boro respond? They usually don't come from behind.

8:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And that's you lot leapfrogging both Everton and Arsenal into 5th on 52 points. Try to be grumpy about that, eh?

8:31 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Boro get the ball into their striker who should have laid it off but turns.. then cross comes in.. United survive

Come on United...make my morning easy peasy please

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Negredo heads wide from a great cross from Fabio.

8:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Grant Leadbetter into the book now for some silliness.

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

As I type, United up to fifth and only three points behind Liverpool in fourth with a game in hand. City win today then United would be only 3 back with TWO games in hand

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sixth place for the Gunners this late in the season is their worst position in the Wenger era.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sounds like we're going for Citeh . I was originally going for a draw.

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

LIngard with a chance... takes to long.. deflected shot

Corner for United

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

Nothing

Have they scored from a corner this season...not sure

8:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hair Bear has a shot deflect for a corner. Smalling heads wide from the corner.

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

No way have United already won this one!!
Let's not count the chickens...

8:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob will be amused that Adam Clayton was booked for stupidly kicking the ball away. No surprises there.

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

Boro still look dangerous when they come forward.

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

Not surprises at all. Clayton is a wally.

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

Struth...United survive there
Quick passing, cross comes in... misses everyone

Jones of course falls

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. We really could use another goal and as I type , De Roon played a great pass across the box, but nobody was there to connect.

8:36 AM

Is that Zlatan in a Fellaini wig

8:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hair Bear clears for a Boro corner. He didn't seem to know where that was going.

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

Fellaini almost scores in the other end... he had no idea the ball was going to hit him


United look so shaky agains this mob....sigh

8:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LOL, Gary. He would have been proud of that finish.

8:38 AM

United look like they should score more...but they won't

United look like they will concede... sigh

Fellaini's first league goal since Dec 2015
30 appearances

8:39 AM

Magnus says Boro started , but they can't finish for Toffee.

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's quite a drought. Surprised he scored today.

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

Get the ball out wide to Young...he has put some crosses in... that is what is needed

If said it before and I will say it again... Crossing... a lost art

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great run by Rash, but Valdes blocks his pass.

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

Lingard plays in Rash... cross blocked by keeper

UNITED NEED TO SCORE AGAIN

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

United do not get enough players in the box

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It did result in the goal. You make a great point.

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fabio wins a corner off of Bailey.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fortunately, Boro haven't done any better with their corners than we have.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another great run by Rash and another pathetic end product.

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

Oh - great run by Rash and nearly a brilliant back heel into Lindy. Marvelous stuff!

8:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United's clinical finishing....you're 'aving a laugh

Rash should have found Valencia there instead of a back heal
Of course, Antonio would have closed his eyes and just whacked it across the box

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A minute of stoppage time.

8:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So, you'll go into the interval a goal up away to a side who rarely score any goals. Not a bad position to be in. All you need to do is to keep winning the matches you have in hand.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United are one up at the half despite a less than convincing performance.

8:46 AM

HT

United ahead...just score a couple more please!!!

Ding ding! Major landmark alert! Middlesbrough have now played eight hours of league football since they last scored a goal.

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A great way to stay awake.

9:06 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Again, Valencia fails to cross the ball

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hopefully, they extend that streak. Great anoraking.

9:07 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Useless again by Valencia and then Jones

9:10 AM

Yash clears for a Boro corner.

9:10 AM

De Gea catches the corner from Ramirez.

9:10 AM

Too slow by United... get the ball in the box quicker

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

Young is the only one that is taking people on

9:13 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I think Young has played well...he'll be subbed

9:13 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

This is exactly what I didn't want United to do this half


Just going thru the motions

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

9:19 AM

GOAL! What about that strike from Jesse Lingard!

9:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

0-2 isn't good enough for you?

9:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It started with a tackle won by Bailey deep in the United half. He passed to Mata in the center circle and Lindy nicked it off of him, going on a solo run , then scoring a cracker from 30 yards in the upper 90.

9:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boro with their second shot on target as a header from Negredo is straight to De Gea.

9:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another solo run by Lindy, but this attack took too long to develop.

9:23 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

No it's not

United have scored 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 in the Prem matches...I want TEN

9:23 AM

Ball put in the box... Jones doesn't go for the ball at all
Lucky there

9:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Adama Traore is on for the fragile Gaston Ramirez and burly Rudy Gestede is no for holding middie, Ledbitter.

9:25 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Steve Agnew throws on Traore and Gestede for Leadbetter and Ramirez.

9:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Rojo on for Mata as Jose counters with a change after Traore won a Boro corner.

9:26 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Rojo coming on for Mata... really positive move by Jose there!

9:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner from Ten Downing Street is headed away by Bailey.

9:26 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I guess he's going back to back four but still...

9:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

So much for United scoring ten this match.

9:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Steve Agnew is the Boro caretaker manager. it could be Spiro and it wouldn't make a bit of difference.

9:28 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not going to happen. But then you don't need it. Just keep winning your matches. If you get into the Champions League and win the Europa League this season, you'd have to consider that a successful first season for Mou.

9:28 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United NEED another goal

DON'T SIT BACK

Agreed. We have a chance to make a success of this season. Just need a strong run in

Mourinho is an utterly pragmatic manager. Sometimes it is good enough to be good enough.

Agnew is happier than he's been since he was wiretapping the DNC at the Watergate.

How's that for a historical pun!

9:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lindy is down and will be replaced by Martial in a moment.

9:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Why are we struggling to hold on against the worst attack in the league?

9:35 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Smalling play there was so bad
Baiily didn't jump for the ball, Smalling can't stand and kick the ball!

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

Superb acting job by Lindy there. Taking off the boot was a masterstroke.

9:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lindy is karate chopped off the field due to hurt ankle.

9:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BOOM BOOM. Great historical reference. United playing so poorly that no wiretapping is required.

9:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Looking at the table, we have the worst GD of the top seven
We actually are closer to Arsenal than I thought
Only 3 behind... that's why you should score four not two

9:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Celtic is one up at Crocodile Dundee early in the second half.

9:38 AM

At this rate, We'll be lucky to get three points from this match.

Come on, United - hang in there!

9:40 AM

Perfect example of what is wrong with United

Free kick with a chance to get it in the box...NO ONE was anywhere near the box... the ball is. chipped wide, lose possession... give away a free kick

useless by Smalling getting megged

Now there is handbags....United players need to be above that


This will just mean there is 5 added minutes!

It looks as if Rudy Gestede started it with a push on Bailey.

Blogger United We Stand said...

Now they concede a corner


I'm sorry....this is not good enough
