Everton will plummet once a few injuries to key players happens, they are already back to using Davies in midfield.

And he was very good too. You should know how good he can be as he scored when they beat us at St Mary's last season. In fact, Everton have never lost a game against us when Davies has played.

Looks like Lemina is doing exactly what most of us thought he would.

He's not involved again.

Neither is Reed fwiw, another player too fragile for this league.

Tony Khan buys the players so imagine there might be a bit of friction after his tweets last time out.

How is Martial sent off and Lamela fine? A vaguely forceful arm in the throat v a tap on the face?

martial can’t argue but that’s insane. And lamela is a disgrace for the acting. Enjoying this game (laughing at the defending) and then reminded what horrible people some footballers are

Martial may as well have gone back on the pitch and punched Lamela’s lights out.

I was playing in a Sunday league game 30 years ago where a bloke was sent off for swearing at the ref. He was arguing “I’m sent off for that”, he then followed it by saying “I might as well get sent off for something worthwhile” and then chinned our best player on the way off.

You watch the media & pundits blame Woodward. They won’t blame ole, just like they won’t accept what a good job Jose did there with that bunch. 

Bad manager, bad owners, awful defence, horrific star-player ... they won’t be back on top of the league for a long time at this rate.

🤣🤣🤣

Yup, annoyingly good pass - absolutely perfectly weighted first time.

Sadly he has made a difference to them. Mourinho is no mug.

Makes our showing against Spurs look half decent.

Our defence might have been terrible but at least we didn’t just completely throw in the towel like United just did.

Yep was thinking this too.

I think had we got the goals we deserved in the first half we would have had something to defend or the game could have gone so differently.

Oh well- it was satisfying watching Utd get destroyed instead haha even if it is Spurs doing the damage

Their fans are so weird. Demanding new signings to replace all the signings they demanded last time. One said well Saints recovered from 9-0. Yeah, pretty sure our defence didn't cost about 300m, but yes I'm sure you'll recover and finish 11th too.

Every player there has been a half decent or very good player under other managers. Talk about signings and the board once you can say the manager is vaguely getting the most out of his resources. 

They were so lucky not to lose to Brighton, absolutely outplayed there too. 

No tactics, no coherent team, every player off form, defence all over the place, motivation not right. 

It is crying out for someone like Poch to actually form a proper team from it, but they'll stick with the guy who wasn't as good as Neil Warnock.

Man Utd are broken and it all stems from above the management/coaching.

Their recruitment is nothing other than diabolical, every single year. They are one of the biggest clubs in world football, what they bring in on marketing alone would make us squirm, but they are being left behind by most 'top' teams in Europe now on the pitch because their recruitment is bitty, slow and failing most years.

They don't seem to have a recruitment strategy, as will be proven by the deadline day signing of Cavani. Their fans have every right to be baffled and frustrated by the overall ownership of the club, arguably one of the biggest club names in world football is being managed in a way that no one could have seen 10 years ago.

Evra looks ready to kill on TV. 
How has he just said he is ready to rip up his contract with Sky?! 😂

He just said 'I don't promote violence, but I'd go in there and give them all a few slaps at the moment'

Lol.

Maybe United haven't been busy in the transfer market because they have no faith in Ole. As he trudged off he looked like a dead-man walking. Poch has long been tipped for this job, but United's resurgence after lockdown made it difficult to replace Ole. I have a feeling today will have given them the excuse to get rid of him. Poch by the end of the week? Mind you, having seen the shambles today, would he want the job?

Their recruitment was odd/confused under Van Gal and Jose either. Although with Jose, he threw the board under the bus with his comments and they ended up sacking him.

With Van Gal they went for headline signings such as Falcao and Di Maria. No real impact from those. It's a club with no plan, just flying from season to season and seeing what sticks.

I always say Man Utd’s demise right now is with their wage structure and recruitment.

These players coming to Man Utd thinking they've made it. Is Cavani for £210k per week going to change anything? No one in that team until they have won a title should be on more than £150k a week.

However- in truth I don’t care so much I hope they lose even more this season

Would Poch want to go there the way they’re being run at the minute? Sounds like all frustration from the fans is being aimed at Woodward and the owners, unless there’s change on that front United will carry on a shadow of the side they were.
