McCarthy today was fantastic. Easily MOTM. Its all about putting points on the board so i can't really complain much knowing we won.

Who was doing the tannoy at the game? Sounded worse than Rossy and that's some achievement

also, Naismith's first pass was behind Leighton Baines - the groan was way too loud

I'm not his biggest fan by any stretch of the imagination but that's just not needed is it?

Yea I thought that was way over the top, especially given how many players misplaced passes today and avoided the same loud groans.

We didn't play brilliantly but considering only Bayern Munich had more players on international duty than us then it's a decent win.

Not sure how we faired last season after international breaks but I think we lost to Reading after one.

This reminded me a lot of last year's Reading game.  But instead of 0 points, we made a great tactical sub, scored a beautiful goal, then managed to grind out the 3 points we had to have.

To me, this is the perfect microcosm of the positive change to RM.

Barry, Jagielka, Distin, and Barkley to name a few

it was the lad's first pass of the game as well.  give him a chance before ripping into him at least!

Agreed. This game reminded me of a lot of games last season where we dropped stupid points, due to many factors, but one of the main ones being Moyes reluctance to make a change before 70 minutes.

 West Ham and now today Martinez has made early subs and we've gone onto win the game, he see's the danger and reacts to it, whereas under Moyes he would just stick with it and see what happens, then make the changes when we inevitably conceded a goal.

It's Pienaar's fault, he set the bar too high for first touches.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

Be interesting to watch MOTD.

I thought Barry was lucky to stay on the pitch as was whoever it was who clattered Jagielka and Huddlestone had a studs up challenge on McCarthy I think.

It would've been a very unfortunate red card. He went for the ball, he got the ball, his studs slipped on the top of the ball and he clattered into the lad accidentally. The one on Jagielka was far worse, it was nowhere near the ball.

I didn't think the Barry tackle was a red. It looked to me like he went for the ball his boot hit the top third of the ball and skid up and over hitting the player, I haven't seen a replay yet though. It was clumsy but I don't think that was a red. Whereas Sagbo didn't even get a yellow for the tackle on Jagielka.

Second last we are, second fucking last!! Second last only to Stoke 0-0 West Brom, which makes us the equivalent of being last anyway because no one gives a fuck about Stoke v West Brom. And the shite are second, fucking second, the media love the shite, if I wasn't so annoyed I'd start a fucking thread about this.

To be fair our game was shit, while elsewhere there were a lot of better ones. Even Liverpool's.

I think Gary is being satirical.

I think it's partially about the opposition too. If we were playing a more glamourous team it would've helped. But in fairness, the game wasn't the best and there were more goals in  those others games before us with the exception of the Man Utd game but that was always going to be ahead of us as it's continuing the narrative of Man United struggling.
