    Got away with one there. Danso very naive.

    Good point, well defended in the end. United poor in that second half.

    Yep. We were looking the team most likely to score again up until the red card.

    Given how much pressure they put us under after that, I'll gladly take that point. Not a chance we would have held on to that last season, so the signs of improvement are there.

    A fair point.

    Draw the fair result. We grafted for it when Danso got sent off. Good defending by JV and JB.

    I'll take that.

    Big point, that holding on will do wonders for morale plus we’re out the bottom 3.

    A lesson to learn for Danso, but thankfully no harm done.

    Silly from Danso but I really like him so far, will be great at CB I think. Very pleased for Vest, been criticised by all, including me, and I always say he should be more dangerous from set pieces. Well today he was a monster, and got an important goal too, great stuff.

    Cool Saints 1-1 Man Utd - Reaction

    Good point without our two best wide men.

    Bednarek and Romeu were awesome but MOM to Vestegaard. Great blocks and a great header.

    JWP, who should have been helping Cedric with James, wasn't even in the camera shot for the United goal. Cedric recovered well from that though.


    Adams needs to hit the target with his next effort.

    He seems intelligent enough to be able to.

    Mustn't forget as well he set up Veestagarrd for the goal.

    He will learn and improve

    Syupid early kick off. I was wasting my time while waiting for kick off. Just caught the last couple of minutes.

    Vest & Rom had great games imo. Very good result considering the sending off. Utd have fallen pretty far. The likes of Rashford wouldn't get near the top sides starting 11.

  17. Default

    Yeah forgot to mention Romeu. What a performance, Hoj didn’t turn up at all so he basically ran CM on his own.

    Yep, the real disappointment was the implosion against Burnley. But as you say 4 points ok, 6 would have been nice. A steady start and we will be OK if we are more clinical against our mid to lower rivals.

    Over the course of the game it’s a fair result, the momentum really ebbed and flowed between the two teams. I thought we were looking favourites to get the next goal before the red card so that’s a shame, but overall we’ve gotta be happy with a point after defending with ten men for 20 odd mins. Some really good performances from the CBs and Romeu in particular.

    Utd are pretty ordinary but Wan-Bissaka is some player. Tackle after tackle.

    Romeu was a beast in the second half today!

    Brilliant second half which seems to be a theme. Romeu outstanding.

    Utd use to have the best away support in the country, amazing what a few years of nothing does as they were terrible today.

    Great point and happy with 4 points from those 4 games.

    Seemed like 2 average mid table sides, which is far more worrying for them than us.

    With Bertrand, Redmond and Djenepo we'd have won that. Most did well besides the strikers. I just don't know what Ings offers at all. Hopefully Adams will develop in time but he was awful. I'd rather start Boufal, Redmond and Djenepo and just go for the movement and pace once we can.

    Boufal was the only spark in the side really, did well considering united put plenty of men around him.

    Dug in well once ten men, can't fault that.

    What a game from Vestergaard. Awesome. Good Saints team performance too, apart from a few mistakes which could have cost us dear but thankfully Manchester’s second team couldn’t capitalise.

    Great point, shame about the sending off but sounded deserved. Good to see some spirit in the side.

    A decent effort given the circumstances, defended a lot better but stupid from Danso. Adams really needs a goal though, had a great chance which he sliced. Another positive contribution from Boufal. I think with him, Redmond and Djenepo we should be able to get enough goals to stay up this season. Difficult to assess 4 games in, but having played Liverpool and Utd 4 points isn't a disastrous return.

    Lets hope Danso learns from his naive red card in the same way Valery did last season!

    As said a great performance from Vestergard and Bednarek, Romeu was a monster in the centre too. Pretty poor game from Adams, Ings wasnít good either. Would quite like to see Boufal through the middle with Redmond and Djenepo either side, if Obafemi can ever be not injured that would be a lively front 4 (probably get ripped defensively though...Chris Nicholl style football).

    We seem to be improving game by game which is good to see!
    We also managed to hold on without conceding in the last few minutes, as has been our habit of late!
    Obviously the solution is to take a man off last ten minutes!

    Watched it with my Grandson and we enjoyed the determination of our defenders. I'm a little disappointed in Adams though. Perhaps he would be better as and early sub. Yet again Young got away with his tackles but the Yellow he received was well deserved. Rashfords 'corner' was not! All in all well done to all. Once Saints scored the Mancs went silent. Arrogant s.h.i.t.s

    Out and about today so not followed the game, thus a draw is a decent result on the surface.

    At least it gives the mods further chance to turn a blind eye to the next "XXX days since a win against the top 6" post...

    Would've taken a point at 12.30pm but felt we were bossing the game before Danso's stupid red turned the second half momentum. OR and JV were outstanding and glad JV finally won a header in the opposition box. Three games unbeaten #WeMarchOn

    Very happy with a point there.

    Was a bit unsure that we could afford to play 4-2-2-2, but we might be able to get away with it if Vestergaard can keep up this form!

    Romeu MOTM outstanding with JWP absolute dogsh1t today.
    Good defence today Cedric did well but at the end scared me with Pogba coming deep needs to chat more.
    Good point

    Called the Danso red card, could sense it. Shame as he and we looked decent up to then. Decent long throw on him too.

    Take the point - rom and vesty excellent. Hoj seemed out of sorts

    Boufal has potential

    Important to point out that Boufal was up against Wan Bissaka too, for me the best defence full back in the league. Really wished he'd been switched out to the right hand side to face Young. Thought he did well, worked hard, they were definitely worried about him as he always seemed to have 3 players in front of him.

    I even wondered what the odds were of a Danso red card as soon as he got the booking, felt inevitbale, surprised you didn't make some money out of that one.

    Thought he looked a good player though, encouraging signs apart from his crazy yellow.

    I missed it due to the stoopid early kick off....Consoling myself by watching the footage of the 76 cup final on Saints site.

    Edit: on my 3rd play now. Spoiler alert, we win!

    Yeah, I thought the same. Wan-Bissaka put in a maginificent performance here last season and he was on similar form today. Putting Boufal against him felt like we were negating his best attribute. That being said, I thought Boufal played ok in general.

    Some people might point to his poor pass to Hojbjerg as typical-Boufal, but the failure was not putting him earlier, after that it was a poor run from Hojbjerg, didn't give Boufal a good angle to play.

    What was Danso thinking???? Up until then he was the best player in a shirt. Fantastic buy.

    Hate sitting in family stand, canít express myself fully with kids about but had perfect view of Utd goal. Carbon copy of Liverpool game mane goal, just stood off player, absolutely pathetic. Was screaming close him down, then bang and once again, goal!

    Romeu, take a bow. Was fantastic against Liverpool. Was man of the match today. Got a second wind again. Mustíve been the solid Ralph pre-season. Fantastic performance. Lost count number of times broke it up or won it back. Class.

    Overall, if Danso doesnít go sliding in like that, we win that game.

    Utd are not the same Utd of old.

    Up the saints!!!

    Got to be happy with a point in the circumstances. We've picked up 4 points in 2 games without playing well which augers well for if and when we do start to perform. Still loads of issues, particularly Ings and Adams who look static and unthreatening.

    Ings at least wins the ball in the air as was shown again today but where was his support? He challenged almost every possible header and on this performance he was an improvement from previous games. MOTM for me was Romeu he was outstanding once he got his second wind.

    Good game to be at. Can't fault the players effort of work rate today at times though they are just let down by their own lack of quality.

    Defence was pretty solid help out by a bit of luck.

    Midfield was decent mostly thanks to Romeu who was Motm today one of his best performances in a long time

    Attack looked about as threatening as a blunt, rusty butter knife. Neither Ings, Adams or Boufal looked threatening to often over doing it in the final third and wasting the few opportunities we had.

    Danso looks like a good player quick, strong good with the ball. A shame about the red card but then the ref was just looking to give man u an advantage so at least he was happy.
