Game #2... the one before David's Match

So, can United improve on their 5-2 win against the LA Galaxy on Saturday.? Tonight they take on Real Salt Lake. I have no idea how good or bad they are but a win is a must. Up next, the Manchester Derby... I bet Dave won't be on LOB on Friday!!

There have been announcements on the screens of severe weather around. Dark clouds are around but starting to clear

Mourinho has told MUTV that players will play 45 minutes each..perhaps less

9:34 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Already too many commercials

10:02 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good evening, Dave. I'm here to join you for the match before the one I watch in Houston on Thursday.

10:03 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Finally back
Real in white
United in black

10:03 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Back from the commercials as all the Pre-match pomp and circumstance takes place. Love the new United kit.

10:04 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I Shaw don't know where he went. He may gone by September 1st.

10:05 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

We are off

10:06 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Who is the McTomain that is starting on the right side of midfield.

10:06 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Off from Utah

10:06 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A very good evening, chaps. Who is this Manchester United that you speak of? ;-)

10:08 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lindy offside off a nice through ball from FM Radio.

10:09 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I hate this other guy on the mic... he is so anti United every single time I here him talk

10:09 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good evening, mate. What a pleasant surprise to read your comment. I surely thought you would be watching those hometown dates. Does any of them call Fred Town their hometown?

10:10 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Welcome Bob

10:10 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I don't think I can stand this bloke the whole match

10:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. Starting to sound like Bob.

10:10 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Hometown Dates were splendid tonight. Would you like to hear about them? Plenty of drama!

10:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fortunately the air conditioner is drowning out the sound so I can't hear him.

10:11 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks, but I will take a rain check on that.

10:11 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Hominy Grits not to far away.

10:11 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!McTomain poison nearly scored with a shot from just outside the box that went inches wide.

10:12 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So, where's Zlatan? I might have to turn over to Kate + 8 if he doesn't feature tonight.

10:12 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Do you think he could score with just one good leg?

10:13 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Alright, MUR - you win the pun war there. I shouldn't even try.

10:13 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Dave and I would be watching Coronation Street if we wanted dram, so that we can stay loyal to Manchester.

10:13 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks, mate. I try.

10:13 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United are not too impressive so far

10:15 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Is it the altitude?

10:16 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not a lot of action so far. I reckon a re-run of Storage Wars might be in order.

10:17 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Elizabeth loves that show. I know they run a marathon of those.

10:18 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It's amazing to think that when we were kids the only live matches we'd get every year were the League and FA Cup Finals, the Home Internationals and the World Cup or European Championship qualifiers. Now we get this one live. Incredible!

10:18 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Shut this guy up!!!

10:19 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I can't bear to watch it, actually. Clutter drives me crazy.

10:19 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Live T.V. has come a long way. I remember those days.

10:20 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

You're taking drama over clutter?

10:20 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United are second best

10:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Perreira fumbles a long range Real effort then gathers at the second attempt.

10:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, but they're playing like third best.

10:21 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - The Chunk just short of latching onto that cross from F-M.

10:22 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Chunk is not on the correct wavelength as he fails to connect on a pass from FM Music.

10:23 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Plata nearly got through the United defense there but was put off by Lindy.

10:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lindy with a last ditch block to prevent a Real lead as the win a Real corner.

10:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It is Real that United suck this evening.

10:25 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United have created nowt

10:25 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

He's no longer allowed to be called the Chunk!!

10:27 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Svarino, the young Venezualan has been lively as he win a Real corner.

10:27 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Moron on the Mic

10:27 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

F-M runs with the ball right to a defender and says.... take it from me

10:28 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Why can't I call him The Chunk anymore?

10:28 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Pogba too slow and ball gets taken away

Real break from that and score!!


Useless by United

10:29 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bloody hell - the Mormons have scored!

10:29 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BUGGER !!!! SALT LAKE TAKE THE LEAD

10:29 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That wasn't good by Lindelof...just let his man go

10:29 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Decent shot by Lukaku but straight at the keeper

10:30 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Savarino, who has been running the show, with a nice through ball as Jones was out muscled and out fought by Luis Silva who shot the ball past the on rushing Perreira.

10:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Offside by at least a Chunk.

10:31 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

These guys are idiots

ESPN are just as bad as Fox when they bring their own announcers

10:32 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Stevie Nichol not liking Lukaku... he is a RED and Lu was a BlUE

10:32 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Jones looks like he is still in LA

10:33 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BOOM BOOM, BASIL

10:33 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wahay - Miki equalizes for United! Polite applause from the United faithful.

10:34 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

GOAL!!

MIKI WITH A NICE FINISH!

A good move by United as these two bozos just kept talking not thinking there is a game going on

STOP ASKING AND ANSWERING QUESTIONS!

COMMENTATE ON THE MATCH

10:35 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! MIKI TIES IT UP FOR UNITED AGAINST THE RUN OF PLAY. FM MUSIC TO LINDY TO THE CHUNK TO LINDY TO MIKI, WHO PLACED IT IN THE CORNER FROM 25 YARDS OUT.

10:35 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Real have a wave of subs about to come on

10:36 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Healy usually not that bad but he's been unlistenable with this bloke next to him

10:37 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

half hour is pretty stupid!!

I know they have a game soon but still

10:37 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WTF! A REAL CIRCUS AS THEY ARE MAKING WHAT LOOKS LIKE ELEVEN SUBSTITUTIONS AT THE HALF HOUR MARK. I've never seen anything like it.

10:37 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Then why play this match?

10:38 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Silly season in Salt lake.

10:42 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lovely finish from The Chunk! You'll be hoping for more of the same this season.

10:43 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! THE CHUNK WITH HIS FIRST UNITED GOAL AS THEY HAVE COME FROM BEHIND TO LEAD 2-1.

10:44 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

YESSS
Account open by Lukaku

He would not have scored in the Prem

He almost blew it


It is first time

10:44 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice long possession from United that culminated in a through ball from Miki to the Chunk, who split a defender and the keeper to easily score.

10:46 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just wide by the Chunk as he nearly had a second

10:46 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Is this lead tainted as both goal came after the Real starting lineup had been subbed?

10:47 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

This guy needs to SHTUUUM

10:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Miki offside from a through ball.

10:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Are you referring to Adrian Healey or the guy from Venezuala?

10:49 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Please stop talking...just commentate

10:49 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Half time
United not impressive but lead 2-1

10:51 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

No stoppage time as United lead 2-1 at the half as they came from behind. Both goals came after the starters were subbed.

10:51 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Did you see the leak of United's third shirt
It is gray with United's Holy Trinity statue at the bottom

10:54 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just got out of the loo, but I will rewind and check.

10:58 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just checked and noticed that . Eagle eyes. Thanks for the info.

11:01 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bloody hell - the Deuce missed the kick off. Poor show. Amateur hour.

11:06 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

And ESPN miss the kick off .... for the second match in a row!!

11:06 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BLOODY HELL !!! THE COMMERCIAL BREAK ENDED NINE SECONDS AFTER THE SECOND HALF STARTED. EVEN FOX ISN'T THIS BAD.

11:07 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

You need time to tell all the changes... so lets go back to the match after the kick off!!


Are you Fox in disguise

11:07 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Adrian Healey just said that United made eleven substitutions.

11:07 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Healey said back in the nick of time...no... nine second late

11:07 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

They did that in the last match

11:08 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

No they are worse.

11:09 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I don't get why every time there is possession from the keeper, the teams have to build from the back... you get yourself in trouble!! GO LONG ONCE IN A WHILE

11:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The offside flag was raised as there was a karate chop in an illegal position.

11:10 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

He was onside there


STOP CHATTING AND COMMENTATE

11:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. A textbook shouldn't dictate EVERY possession.

11:11 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They need to SCHTUUM ! Is that possible for them?

11:12 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Elizabeth wants me to record the match so she can check to see if I get filmed. What is she going to make of the chitter chatter?

11:12 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

SHUT UP... winning the Europa League is good

11:13 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Seriously.... I can't take these guys much more


They do know there is a match going on in front of them!!

11:14 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Really rubbish commentary.

11:15 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Is it annoying you as much as it me?

11:17 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I want to let ESPN know... this is atrocious

11:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It sure is and we wonder why Adrian Healey is on a third rate American network instead of announcing in the U.K.

11:18 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Call the guy's name who has the ball, then who he passed it to
It is simple

11:19 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Valencia with a foul while the idiots are talking about a text message.

11:20 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm off to watch something with the missus, lads. I'll see you Wednesday evening. Cheerio!

11:20 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Mata is off... I hope his ankle is ok and it is just precautionary

OF course ESPN didn't get the change

11:20 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Take care Bob

11:20 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another substitution for United as Mitchell, a twenty year old from Manchester is on , but who came off?

11:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers, Bob. We need to tell him it's Thursday, not Wednesday.

11:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He came on for Mata. It really does Mata that these announcers are late on every bloody thing.

11:22 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United have been so poor tonight
No one seems to be trying

11:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm not sure whether it's the altitude or attitude.

11:27 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11:28 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Poor foul from behind by Valencia. Isn't that his second in the last few minutes? BLOODY HELL HE'S OFF!

11:28 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Are you kidding me.... ref sends him off.... FIVE MINUTES after the tackle!!

11:28 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

THIS IS REAL RIDICULOUS! I thought they already made eleven substitutions. Here's another five.

11:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This match has been a bloody joke. Looking for better from the Manc Derby.

11:31 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Of course, Adrian didn't tell us until after it happened but it was a great cross by Rashford and hopeless by Fellaini

11:33 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Adrian just did some commentating on the match.. Real go very close

11:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mulholland nearly nearly made it Desmond with a shot from just outside the box.

11:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's a bloody miracle. The AC just stopped running , so now I will be forced to listen to this.

11:35 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That was a nice run by Martial and he almost found Rash in the middle

11:37 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A pass is karate chopped into the Real box and cleared for a United corner.

11:37 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Great cross... Smalling misses a sitter of a header

11:38 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Is that Real's sixteenth substitution?

11:38 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A horrible miss from Smalling.

11:39 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United have been so poor there has been nothing to comment about

11:44 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

If United play like this when you're watching them...they are going to get crushed

11:45 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Mitchell with a great run... Martial with a chance... HIT THE TARGET

11:45 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not even close with the shot

11:46 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. I haven't found anything to comment about. Hopefully, the poor performance is because their thinking about that match instead of this match.

11:46 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Fellaini.... there is no one in the box!!!!

11:46 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I hope there isn't any stoppage time. I can't take any more of this and at night as is.

11:47 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

OMG... the linesman and referee has been just as bad as the players and commentators

11:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another useless cross to absolutely nobody.

11:49 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Why make a substitution with less than two minutes left in the match?

11:49 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

There is no way United will win the league this year
BUT...I am still picking them!

I'm loyal!!!!!

11:51 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Romero forced into a near post save that results in a Real corner as we enter stoppage time.

11:51 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A pointless substitution as Wasabe is on for the Karate Kid.

11:52 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I hate stuff like that from Jose

Off goes Martial for a defender

11:52 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Will they be better than the sixth place position from last season?

11:52 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Just blow up ref!!

11:53 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That's it
Very disappointing by United


I am off to bed


Have a GREAT TIME and send pictures


Nite

11:54 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

You should sleep soundly as the final whistle is blown.

11:54 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good night. Thanks and I sure will.

11:54 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's it for me as ten man United hold on for an unimpressive 2-1 win.

CHEERS!
