Final score. We lost 1-2 and Man City officially crowned champion
But no shame to lose as the youngster played pretty ok but we were always going to be second best in this match

lenghan 14-05-2021 04:28 AM

1-0 from OG by Liverpool defender when he tried to block BF shot after a good run by WB to retrieve the ball

lenghan 14-05-2021 04:38 AM

So far the first 20mins we have been the better side pressing very high onto Liverpool hlaf

lenghan 14-05-2021 04:49 AM

Once again we concede the equaliser from corner
Liverpool has been on the ascendancy after the 20th mins

lenghan 14-05-2021 05:04 AM

Bloody poor defending again. 1-2 down on 3rd min of extra time
We simply cannot defend set pieces
This 2nd goal by Liverpool is fault of PP for standing still when he could have taken the ball off Firmino.

lenghan 14-05-2021 05:23 AM

What a poor start to concede within 2 mins
Fred trying to pass from the back once again
1-3 down now and the fault is also with Hendersen
Ole is still on his seat looking so blankly

lenghan 14-05-2021 05:28 AM

Why is MR still playing when he still does not look match fit
Get Greenwood in and also get Fred OUT
At the moment Liverpool is running us to the ground and Jota almost made it 1-4

lenghan 14-05-2021 05:44 AM

2-3 now
Scored by MR good assist by EC
Hope this spells game on
And it was almost 3-3 when Greenwood and BF shots were cleared off the line
PP is playing in the centre after Fred sub out seems to change the tempo

lenghan 14-05-2021 06:00 AM

Ole is bringing in Matic on when we are behind 2-3???
Where is the logic??

lenghan 14-05-2021 06:07 AM

Overall Liverpool deserves to win
Hendersen was poor again to allow Salah to score their 4th goal

KeeHuat 14-05-2021 06:24 AM

Poor performance from many players: Fred, Lindelöf, Pogba, McTominay. Fred's passing was rubbish. Pogba tried to dribble too much and lost the ball, McTominay didn't play well, Lindelöf's passing was bad and instead of heading the ball always lets it bounce first and the opponent is on top of him.

3 of the goals were mistakes. 2nd goal Pogba lost his man. 3rd goal Fred poor pass and Shaw dribbling and lost the ball. 4th goal, Matic dribbled and lost the ball.

After United scored the first goal, the pressing disappeared.

Very disappointing.

lenghan 14-05-2021 10:09 PM

Isn't football a very strange game. We have always complained about HM not fit to captain the club but ironically his absence last night was greatly missed!! There seems to be no motivation in the team, esp EB after he had been offered his extension stay. He was, to put it bluntly, played a poor game, just like how poorly Fred played too.
And we talk about selling DDG when we clearly see a error prone DH but of course the English media chooses not to highlight his shortfall. Had it been DDG, he would be left to loads of abuses.
And what about Ole, he rather play Matic when we are chasing for either a draw (at best) or win (most unlikely)
Why leave Amad or DVDB on the bench throughout instead of taking a gamble with them? If we were leading, I can understand his rationale, but losing?????
If this trend continues for the new season, the fans would be on Ole's back

loveikan 16-05-2021 11:49 AM

Love Lei's owner celebration with the players.for their FA cup win.
The trust and respect. everyone are in it altogether.
Not just at this special moment.

lenghan 16-05-2021 01:25 PM

So typical of our bidding style...trying to make a 40millon bid for Varance is a sheer waste of time. If we are to secure him, which many other clubs would be trying, Woody should be realistic

With Liverpool also keen, looks very unlikely we will win the bidding war as we love to drag our feet, hoping to low-ball

KeeHuat 16-05-2021 02:39 PM

What do you make of this that the Brazil manager has called up Fred to the Brazil squad for the first time since 2018 for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers with Ecuador and Paraguay.

Real Madrid is asking for 60million which in today's market for a world class defender is considered cheap, but we are known low-ballers with Woody still calling the shots. Liverpool would willing come out with this demand so we better act fast

lenghan 19-05-2021 02:21 AM

What a wonderful shot by EC to give us a 1-0 lead. Clearance by DDG direct to EC who fired a long range shot into goal!!!

lenghan 19-05-2021 03:11 AM

PP iis having a poor game so far. So far SM and Fred playing quite decent game. Tuanzebe is giving a good show too. Other than the wonder goal EC has been starved off any service up front and remains relatively quiet

lenghan 19-05-2021 03:39 AM

What a poor goal to concede. Where is the defense???
1-1 so 2nd place not guaranteed.

lenghan 19-05-2021 03:41 AM

Actually had it not been for DDG we would be losing the game.

Poor DVDB again has only 5 mins of playing time given by Ole.

We are really ending the season very poorly and the final of the Europa League looking gloomy

KeeHuat 19-05-2021 04:23 AM

After a wonderful Cavani goal, failed to score a 2nd goal from the chances.

Lindelöf lost the run against Carvalho and Fulham almost scored in the 1st half. United's did not keep up the pace.

Wan-Bissaka failed to notice the left back Bryan and Greenwood at fault for not tracking the fullback,

loveikan 19-05-2021 09:05 AM

Poor 2nd half. Fulham goal should be disallowed for offside by the right winger
Worrying form in the last 3 games
Hopefully the players trying to avoid injury as many players having an off day in the last 3 games.
And 2nd place secured after Chelsea beats Lei by 2-1.
Sad that we have to depend on others to achieve 2nd placr

lenghan 19-05-2021 07:10 PM

Chelsea, it was reported is after Sancho and is bidding 80million
Pretty sure we will soon be out of the race cos Dortmund would surely go for the highest bidder

lenghan 22-05-2021 02:57 AM

The amount of players that we are rumored to be signing is truly amazing. Just to name a few...Kane, Sancho, Rice, Varance, Tripper, Ronaldo, Kounde....the list goes on. Probably some of these names are Glazers' PR spin to distract the supporters from their anti-Glazers sentiment
Also wondered how Ole's influence could be this new window.
We should follow Chelsea or Man City who are very ruthless in clearing dead wood.
We should stop offering one-year extensions to some of the current squad in particular Mata.
Time to move out Martial, Linggard, Matic, Le Grant, Romero, Jones

Sometimes, when a player is wanted by a club, the player's agent might leak out to the press to get more suitors to drive up demand. Even if a player is not wanted, the agent might try this trick. For a player coming to the end of his contract and who wants to stay on but to get a big raise, his agent will say he is wanted by a host of clubs just to get his present club to offer the player a big new contract. So many tricks going on in the market. Don't know what is genuine and what is trickery.

KeeHuat 23-05-2021 11:17 PM

United: Henderson, Williams, Bailly, Tuanzebe, Telles, Matic (c), van de Beek, Amad, Mata, Elanga, James.

Subs: Grant, Fish, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka, Hannibal, McTominay, Shoretire, Greenwood, Rashford.

lenghan 24-05-2021 12:12 AM

Very encouraging start by our young lads so far
Beautiful cross by James for Elanga to score

lenghan 24-05-2021 12:54 AM

HT we lead 2-1 thanks to DVDB winning a penalty and converted by Mata which could be the last time he scored
Chelsea could be out of the top 4 trailing 0-1 to Aston Villa but could still pip Leicester on goal difference
Kane at the moment leads Salah by 1 goal for the golden boot

lenghan 24-05-2021 01:00 AM

For the 1st half I fancy DVDB to be the MOTM so far
Ole should unleash Hannibal and Shoretire

Liang_Zai 24-05-2021 01:20 AM

How the hell can James miss that?

Haha that is Daniel James for us!!!
Well done to the youngsters. They passed this test in the final match of the season and DVDB to me was the MOTM but so what, Ole is not going to start him in the finals

lenghan 24-05-2021 02:05 AM

Chelsea must be luckiest team to find themselves in the top 4 after losing 1-2 to Aston Villa. They pipped Leicester by goal difference when Leicester lost 2-4 to Spurs. Could it be Kane's last Golden Boot with Spurs??? He pipped Salah by one goal since Salah was not able to find the net in their final game whereas Mane found 2

lenghan 27-05-2021 03:58 AM

Ole is preferring experience over form with the lineup tonight.
Would have thought Tuanzebe to start but instead it is EB whose form unfortunately has taken a dip after he renewed his contract.
Ole spoke so highly of Elanga when he scored but now not even on the bench
DVDB who was MOTM in the semis on the bench as usual

Liang_Zai 27-05-2021 04:26 AM

Cavani been wasteful so far. 2 nice cross n he totally mess it up

Liang_Zai 27-05-2021 04:32 AM

Lindelof seriously can't make it

lenghan 27-05-2021 04:36 AM

We simply do not know how to defend free kicks or corner and we now have conceded from a free kick where VL completely lost his man

loveikan 27-05-2021 04:36 AM

Creating problems for ourselves.
Poor clearance by gk to a Vil players to PP again giving the ball away to another Vil, all inside our own half.
Cavani was forced to drop back to help and give away a free kick leading to a stupid goal

Lost count of the amount of time PP loses possession trying to dribble when he could have made simple passes
Similarly Rashford has been poor so far with far too many poor passing

Liang_Zai 27-05-2021 04:50 AM

We need to release the ball faster than usual n villareal is defending with full team. More sense of urgency please. Rashford have been shitty for quite sometimes and he avoid challenges like Afraid of being injured
