I'm not saying Spurs had an all-star side out, but those players I mentioned are all capable of scoring and that touch of class needed at the highest level (wasn't Bale being built up as one of Europe's best last season?).

United didn't get out of second gear and still strolled to a 3-0 win - to suggest that they are shit is clueless (a bit like how they were shit last season and won the league and made the CL final).

i said shit defence but i meant it in the sarcastic sense that this is uniteds shit defence and they are still keeping clean sheets against spurs, wait till they get rio vidic and evra back and de gea starts to settle and get confidence

I thought Young played a blinder. Does the same trick on the edge of the box and works everytime to beat the defender to get the cross or pass in. Cool

P.s. It's so good to have monday night footy back (I know we had it last season, but glad it's continuing this season as well Cool )

Jimmy326 wrote: Don't understand the "United shit defence" comments Puzzled De Gea aside they looked very solid. Jones looks an exceptional talent, plays more like he's 29 rather than 19. Smalling has also come on a hell of a lot since last season. They'll both be England regulars in the near future. Not many teams could play with their first choice centre halfs and right back missing, a "shit" keeper, and beat a Spurs team with Defoe, Bale, Van de Vaart 3-0.

Thing is, it helps an unbelievable amount when you have quality players around you, not that that's a great insight or anything. Smalling at ours was rarely used, and although it was obvious he had talent, when he played you'd be nervous that he might get caught out. But when you've got world class players playing alongside you instead of Dickson Etuhu, it no doubt gives you reassurance and immeasurable confidence in your own ability. Smalling looked good at Fulham but he'll be fantastic at United.

If they had Gomes it would have been 6-0

that shit keeper was up against probably the worst forward line he will encounter this season, if that was city it would of been 3-3 or even 3-4.

Utd walked City only a few weeks ago.

Spurs where shit against the top 6 last season, United didn't stroll it, until the goal it was pretty even, they certainly aint shit but that's the weakest United side for a long time.

You know nothing. I'd bet that Vidic takes a backseat by the end of the season. Jones will be first choice. Smalling for permanent right back. Rio (depending on injuries) rotating with Evans. So they've got a weaker goalie and most of the experienced players were on the bench. Thought the team tonight were faster and more clinical than anything I saw saw last year. The second youngest side in premier league history just beat the spuds 3-0.

We're all entitled to opinions and none of us can predict the future. But to suggest that Man United's captain, who's only 29, won't be starting by the end of the season (when he's probably the best centre back in the league let alone at United), whilst calling people cunts and telling them they know 'zilch' because they disagree with your nuts prediction is a bit daft.

You know zilch, what that performance was more clinical than when you smashed Birmingham 5-0 was it? or when Rooney ripped Wigan to bits? it was a decent performance against an average team who fell to bits.

Heres an opinion who is top of the fuk fantasy league..

Whoever was calling for carrick to come on is lolclueless.

Spurs are a strong side and I was going to think it was heading for a 0-0. Jones has been amazing but Vidic and Ferdinand will always be ahead of them on the team sheet. I can see Ferdinand though retiring in 2/3 years though if his injuries continue to thwart his career. Smalling was dogshit last year but looks a new player. De Gea I was singing praises for even after the Man City game but there has been too much attention on him. Every keeper has made fucking ridicilous mistakes but are not ridiculed for it and not watched or clapped if they catch a ball. Once De Gea keeps the clean sheets it will not be because of him but Man Utd's strong defense. I sadly see him making shit loads of errors but after some training and experience he will be class. Sadly not looking the 18mil yet, but in a couple of seasons I hope he will.


Spurs still have an amazing team sheet but without Modric they lacked the creativity and Defoe is nothing what he was 3 years ago. I always thought spurs had too many good strikers and they were rampant a week ago (yes, it was Hearts).

Man Utd look so much better than last year, but City have improved the most.
