Hi lads down at the game, frustrated? It's difficult to say, I here what your saying but you can't push to much with what Utd have on the counter. As for the pen I agree rice a player on the pitch should have taken it, rice had the ball and was ready but on the other hand nobles record is immense, and I tell u now, everyone in that stadium was buzzing at that change so in my opinion Moyes should step forward and take that one. It was a good pen, it was was right to the side but at the same it was at a good height for a good guess, we played well, Lingard a goal was a good taken goal but fabianski faltered for a good five mins leading up and for the goal, he wasn't commanding enough. As a fan we played well and for 90% of the game we were the better team, yes we didn't close down enough but you could see the reason for that. Respect to Lingard no celebration. Revenge coming Wednesday mark my words.
Yarmalenko for me is done he did a good few passes but was shown up by the lads who played all game, work rate was poor. Hand on heart a draw was the right result.

I'm not blaming fabianski for the loss but I agree with Whitby he's not a presence or commanding enough I think its time for AREOLA to be given the chance to be our no1.

{Ed002's Note - I think that is a fair comment. It is always difficult with GKs.}

Imo DM should forget about Noble in the playing and the Captaincy business! He is yesterday’s man, great servant and club man, he still has a big part behind the scenes to play, but that’s all! Rice is the Captain, end of story! MN is not Mr Big at WH, DM is the Manager, Rice is the Captain, treat Rice with respect, he is the future, not Noble!

I think it was undermining Rice as the on the pitch Captain to stroll on and take the ball from him, even if it was DM’s decision, that’s bad management showing a lack of trust in everybody else?
Noble would have puffed his chest out had he scored, but he should have been man enough to admit he shouldn’t be taking it just coming!
Of course it would have been the right decision had he scored, butt he didn’t, so they should both take the flak for the that!
It was a crap penalty, those in easy reach a yard off the ground is easy to save when the Keeper goes the correct way, most Keepers are well over 6 ft so no probs stretching,
Also agree that Areola should now be given the chance of stepping up in place of Fab, not because Fab had a really bad game, but simply because we need a younger number 1 Keeper now, I thought that was the purpose of Areola coming in, he could have stayed at PSG as number 2?

I still rate DM but he needs to be prepared to be more open minded in his thinking of selections and prepare some of the old guard to start stepping down?
Overall I think we played decent against a team that are superior, so no complaints at all otherwise apart from the Noble business, just sort the penalty taker out DM!, ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Fair comment Ed its a difficult one but when i look at Fabianski in our goal he looks tiny i ain't going to slate him as he's done very well for us but just this season i have my doubts and i would give AREOLA a chance like i said.

Benny scoring versus the great Utd and no points as an outcome is bound to deflate us lads here. onwards and upwards Antonio is playing later on.
