Sheffield United beat Chelsea 3-0
Our next game vs Southampton. Win and we will be above them
Leicester also has chance against Bournemouth.
So it will be 3rd or 4th but we must win

lenghan 13-07-2020 07:17 AM

Watched Bournemouth vs Leicester this morning. After first half where Leicester dominated and lead 1-0 I gave up and went to bed. Lo and behold, read that Leicester lost 4-1!!!
Wow, now we must not miss this glorious chance tonight to go 3rd

Shadow7 13-07-2020 11:17 AM

With both our rivals dropping points we must sieze the chance and get the crucial 3 points, although Southampton is no push over we need to rake up our goal difference too if the chances comes as we are only 3 behind Leicester now.

Man City's Champions League ban overturned after CAS appeal in major win for Guardiola
So we must now ensure top 4 place to qualify

UEFA credibility gone. How to impose FFP in future.

moscowblue 13-07-2020 06:47 PM

If we win all our remaining matches, we do not need the city ban.
Anyway, this lifting of ban is not by UEFA but by the very best lawyers that city engaged to fight this case in court of arbitration I think. So nothing to do with UEFA. Or maybe UEFA lawyers lousy????

loveikan 13-07-2020 07:17 PM

Yup.
Just need to concentrate on winning our remaining games will do and we should be fine.

Ya, the destiny is in our own hand, and we should qualify based on our performance rather than by default

Hope this group that has been unchanged for the last previous matches lives up to expectations of exciting football. GGMU

What a poor way to start. PP poor control caused us to trail 0-1

PP needs to wake up as he almost caused us another goal after losing the ball so carelessly

Shadow7 14-07-2020 04:21 AM

1-1 Rashford

Offside , not counted earlier
But he leveled it up very soon with a well taken left footed shot

lenghan 14-07-2020 04:26 AM

2-1 up AM scored with a well taken shot assisted by you know who..BF
Both MR and AM saved the blushes for PP

lenghan 14-07-2020 04:53 AM

HT we lead 2-1. But the game is far from over as Southampton are still showing lots of threat

lenghan 14-07-2020 05:25 AM

So far Greenwood had been very quite and Pogba making far too many mistakes. Most likely to be sub sooner
First 20 mins we only managed 1 shot off target

lenghan 14-07-2020 05:49 AM

Good save by DDG/
The 2nd half has not been good for us. We played with little intensity as if to preserve the 2-1 lead only

lenghan 14-07-2020 06:02 AM

We did not deserve to win and Southampton fully deserved the 1 point
Throughout the 2nd half we were very subdued and when they had the corner I thought, shit, we are done and true it turned out.
Not a good game at all for us when we had every chance to go third. Now back to 5th
In fact, we could be considered lucky to salvage 1 point

KeeHuat 14-07-2020 06:38 AM

Poor goal to give away at the end and dropped 2 points. Had chances but could not get the 3rd goal.

Fernandes' passing was off today. Pogba initially back to his usual self of trying to dribble his way out and losing the ball for the first goal. He lost the ball again the same way.

We were simply punished for playing the JM style i.e. defending a slim lead. Most of the players were performing below par, and up till now, DDG has not improved on his game in defending corners. And VL positioning was absolutely poor for their equaliser. Ole must show more passion rather than sitting on the bench for most part of the game and watching on the tv set.

Shadow7 14-07-2020 12:08 PM

The corner should have been claimed by DDG, it was not whipped in but lifted up high where the goalkeeper is favored to get his hands or fist to it first.

De Gea doesn't usually come out for corners. His body is not built up enough and will get bashed by big players. Don't think he will change his style.

Lindelöf can play pass but he is not tough enough to deal with big solid forwards.

RASHFORD READY TO MAKE HISTORY AGAIN

Marcus Rashford is to become the youngest ever recipient of an honorary degree from The University of Manchester, in recognition of his achievements as a footballer and as a passionate campaigner against child poverty.

The 22-year-old will follow in the footsteps of Manchester United legends Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton by receiving an honorary doctorate, the highest honour the university can bestow.

In a statement announcing the award, Rashford said: “It’s a proud day for myself and my family. When you look at the great names that have been awarded this doctorate in the past, it’s humbling.

“We still have a long way to go in the fight to combat child poverty in this country but receiving recognition from your city means we are heading in the right direction and that means a lot. Thank you to The University of Manchester.”

Rashford's dedication to the cause has taken him from the back pages of the newspapers to the front pages in recent weeks. An open letter to Members of Parliament about his personal experiences of using foodbanks influenced a change in government policy, enabling children who have free school meals in term-time to continue receiving them during the summer.

In addition, Marcus's collaboration with poverty and food waste charity, FareShare, led to £20million being raised in financial and food donations and 3.9 million meals being distributed to vulnerable people every week during the COVID-19 crisis.

The University of Manchester's president and vice-chancellor, Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, said: “Marcus is an extraordinary young man with an extraordinary talent and drive that stretches well beyond the football field.

“His work for charity and his high-profile campaign will not only help countless young people across our own city, but across the entire country.

“Our university has social responsibility at its core and this sense of civic pride and duty is something we are proud to share with Marcus. That is why the university is delighted to make Marcus our youngest ever recipient of an honorary degree.”

A spokesperson for United said: “Marcus is an exceptional player and an exceptional person. His work with FareShare and his focus on child poverty make him richly deserving of this tremendous honour and everyone at Manchester United is incredibly proud of him.”

Congratulations, Marcus!

The dates for the Premier League summer transfer window have been released and it will run for 10 weeks from July 27.

The season in England’s top flight will have come to an end by then, and the window will shut on October 5 later this year.

Clubs who have a busy summer ahead will have time to complete transfers given the October date, plus there is an extended period for deals with EFL teams too.

The domestic-only transfer window for Premier League clubs to sign players from the EFL will run from October 5 to October 16.

The transfer window is subject to the approval of FIFA and it remains to be seen how much business leading clubs will decide to do this summer in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis.

Arsenal frustrated Liverpool with a 2-1 victory both goals courtesy of uncharacteristic errors (VVD and then Allison)
Liverpool completely dominated the 2nd half pounding shots after shots but to no avail. So there goes Liverpool quest to beat the 100 points of M City

Shadow7 16-07-2020 05:51 PM

The team really looks tired against Southampton maybe it’s time to freshen up the starting 11 and let some of them rest for the battles ahead. They have been playing non stop every 3 days.

Hope Greenwood recovered from the bad tackle by Romeu who is known to be a pretty dirty player. Surprised he was not even shown a yellow or even a red card as his tackle from slow motion seems deliberate to hurt Greenwood

We need to score as many goals as possible cos it may all go down to goal differences for the final match. At the moment Leicester is leading 1-0 and are appearing too strong for Sheffield United and their goal difference is +30 whilst we are at +25
As I write they added another goal (so +31)

lenghan 17-07-2020 04:36 AM

First 15mins non of our strikers able to muster a single shot due more to no services provided

Shadow7 17-07-2020 04:53 AM

Greenwood looks off form since the last match maybe should let Deniel James out for a run

lenghan 17-07-2020 05:06 AM

Rashford only attempt in the first 45 mins and what great control to put us 1-0 ahead assisted by BF

lenghan 17-07-2020 05:31 AM

Looking at the sub bench, just hope Ole does not choose Mata and Lingard or Dalot
Tonite both Martial and Greenwood looks off form
OMG Lingard, why not James

Shadow7 17-07-2020 05:32 AM

Offside VAR saves us again

lenghan 17-07-2020 05:45 AM

We are making far too many unnecessary fouls. This could give CP a way out

lenghan 17-07-2020 05:58 AM

AM's only shot/attempt ended in us leading 2-0
Very neat assist by MR

lenghan 17-07-2020 06:35 AM

Post match, so difficult to listen to Owen the traitor

KeeHuat 17-07-2020 06:49 AM

Tight match until the 2nd goal went in. Cooling taken goal by Rashford.

Could not afford to withdraw Rashford and Martial as it was a tight match. OGS did not make the same mistake this time which he did against Southampton by withdrawing Fernandes and Pogba who could hold the ball. When Matic came in he also could hold the ball. I think Greenwood is still suffering from the effects of the bad tackle from Romeu.

Tight decision for the offside for Palace's goal.
