So were the BBC, Clinton Morrison said on the match thread that he has the potential to be one of the best numbers nine in the world.

Commentary on our game against them, Lee Dixon was adamant there isn’t a better player in the world for running off the shoulder of the last man

So many are desperate for him to be this sublime striker

Has anyone got those stats about the number of pens they’ve had this season, especially the one about what percentage of all pens in the League they’ve had.

I’d have to have a look back but i’m sure a few games back 40% of the pens awarded for the whole league had been awarded to them

Manchester United now have 6 penalties in 10 games.

The next nearest to that are Us an Palace with 3.

5 teams haven’t even had a penalty.

There have been 26 penalties so far.

Manchester United have 23% of all penalties awarded in the League so far.


updated:

8 penalties in 15 games

6 penalties in 10 league games

1 penalty in 2 cup games

1 penalty in 3 European games

Haha Sky Sports are so desperate for them to be good again, Another article today asking if they've "turned the corner", an article comparing Rashford's free kick to Ronaldo and another one describing McTominay as their "new enforcer and leader". It's hilarious.

Have just seen the penalty.  It wasn't hugely dissimilar to the ridiculous penalty that he got at Norwich.

He has that turn of pace to get in front of defenders and he's very cute in using that to get just goal side and initiate a tangle of legs/bodies.

I think like Vardy dragging a leg behind him to draw contact, or Kane booting the ball off in any direction before hurtling into goalkeepers, it's a ploy that will be seen through soon enough and will stop resulting in penalties.

I only watched the last 20 minutes after our game had finished but it was dreadful stuff.  Just booting the ball up field and out of play, like a turgid game of rugby union.

Seen through? Vardy pulled that trick a week or two ago and got a penalty, I don't think I've even heard a single commentator wise up to it, they just refer to it as "smart" and "the dark arts".

Who's this Penalty fellow they signed? Went under the radar when they signed him this summer but he's been involved a lot for them from what I've seen.

Hes pretty streaky though. Lots of touches but uneven finishing. Still, best player they have.
Damn that Mane's good!

Zero chance.
Even if they are in a solid vein of form, City game will not motivate them that much. They’ll be quite content with a hard earned, low scoring defeat. Only forseeable battle would be if City are wiping the floor with them and some ManU players lose their heads and start kicking out. Not much more.

They've reported a former member of staff to the sexual abuse inquiry.

According to reports, the staff member in question died in 2009 and one of the club's scouts who was made aware of the allegations died in 2011. The club's minutes from the time period apparently state that he was disciplined, but don't say why. Man Utd allegedly "redeployed" him in 1989 to Old Trafford following an internal investigation. The club has reportedly since received more than one complaint. Thus it sounds like the inquiry will want to know what Man Utd and their employees knew and what they did about it

This goes beyond football politics. Needs to be a full investigation across the whole sport with a reliable, confidential and robust reporting system in place. Stories like this have been brushed under the carpet at far too many clubs. It's not about pointing fingers at your rivals, it's about protecting kids.

It’s worth noting that their penalties have in some ways airbrushed just how bad things have been.

But they won’t keep penalties at this rate.  They’d get over 20 in a season which would be absurd.  They’re just on a streak at the moment and eventually it will tend back towards normality.

Should also blame the defenders. First tactic against Man U should be to stand off and let players like Rashford / Lingaard / Mata / some other shite actually try to produce something. Instead some of these defenders are  jumping in and giving them a chance to fall over. And no surprise they have mastered the art of falling over.
