Yeah Cavani is class. Annoying how it’s worked out for them as it wasn’t some master signing, was a last minute panic buy for a player who had almost joined another team only for it to fall through.

Those type of signings can be invaluable, when they experience and touch of class comes in for 1-2 seasons. Chelsea have done similar with Silva (especially now under Tuchel).

This means they will at least take the leicester game, somewhat seriously.

You reckon? They are playing a shite side against them and saving the best for us ... without sounding like a c*nt, good to see a few walking wounded for United in preparation for Thursday.

That Watkins yellow for diving means that a precedent has been set and any further simulation in the box from here on by any player from any team means a yellow, right? RIGHT?

I think they might as well. If they win their 2 midweek games they will be on 76 points. 4 points behind City with 2 games to go. Be surprised if they don't give it a go. I imagine though they will be fucked on Tuesday and there could be more walking wounded.

Well, United's players were diving for most of the game didn't see any of them getting even a yellow card. So, don't get your hopes up.

Au contraire.
I believe the rule is being correctly applied now in that all non MUFC players should be given a yellow card, even if there is contact ("the contact was not sufficient, he was already on his way down..."). While all MUFC players should not be given yellows, but pelanties instead.
The only problem with the rule as it stands right now is that it is not fair to those MUFC players who fall outside the box, and thereby miss out on being awarded the pelanty. That is one amendment that would go a long way in making the game fairer, and also allow us to watch Bruno Fernandes perfect his hop skip score routine further.
The game is  not perfect, but I believe it is going in the right direction.

Great ideas there. It goes without saying I expect our front three to all pick up yellow cards on Thursday.  :D

Why do they need to do that when they'll have an official that will ignore any handballs in their area, send an opposition player off and award them randomly penalties before giving them every decision in the game.

We haven't seen it yet, but it's coming; Taylor smashing one into the top corner for them on 104 minutes after a turgid 0-0.

If it was us in their position and we fielded a weakened side I'd go fucking mental. There is no guarantee that City get the 3 pts they need in the next two away games.

But if they lose to Leicester then City win the league. I don't imagine United want to give them that satisfaction. Surely they want to win both games, so then it's up to City.

Check the pre game thread on redcafe ... they’re not thinking about city, only resting players to do us over.

Tuesday will be a nothing game for them.

The last remaining "tough" game for West Ham. Just for laughs, I would love to see them make the Champions League.

If City, as unlikely as it is, lose their last few games and Utd could’ve won it but spited themselves then I think they all go mad so I don’t think they should give a fuck if we get top 4 until it’s over.

They're just gobshite wools on that forum. Proper Mancs, not wankstains from Cornwall, want to keep the pressure on City until the league is gone. I'm married to a proper Manc so I speak from what I see/am told.

No matter how much we hate the Mancs, if we were in the position to catch the bitters for the title, we'd want us to win every game.

That's it exactly. All of a sudden they then cannot afford a slip up and Newcastle away won't be easy, fat head would love to help Fergie win the league again, the bitters will go all out to help their best mates last day and Brighton can cause an upset.

If they do get to within 4, Paddy Power might offer me a couple of hundred cash out on my bet that the Mancs win the league, 100/1 odds I got.

I’d have United winning the league over City if it meant we got top four. I care about Liverpool being successful, anything else is secondary.

Nail on head. Anyone who puts stopping another team winning something over the best interests of their club is not a supporter, they're either a dickhead or an Evertonian.
