The tactic here has to be to bore them to death and play on their collective frustration

If we've got any chance at this game then we need to look forward and not backwards. Try and expose their weaknesses.

It scares me though that ibra could run at Pennington or Williams. But for me Davies, mirralas and Barkley have to play from the off. If we sit back and defend all game we will get slaughtered

They're a strange team as they don't seem to have any great defenders nor a good defensive midfielder but their goals against record is top drawer. They do have a world class goalkeeper though which may explain it.

I don't think they're a team to be feared but they don't lose many games so it won't be as comfortable as some are making out.

In isolation a draw would be a good result. But after the weekend's defeat and in the interest of looking up the table we need to think about winning, which won't be easy.

Well top 4 has now gone and we hold the last Europa League spot so unless we completely fold in the next few games the season is over for me. Let's crack open the transfer window thread now and be done with it.

Agreed, I mean the daily star has already stated Michael Keane has chosen to join us

That'd be a great way to start the summer window early, unless Mourinho declares an interest.

After Saturday I just hope Lukaku wants to show Mourinho he made a mistake and puts in a shift . They are beatable and the longer we keep them out the more we will be in with a chance on the break . Thats unless Koemann  read my advice and benches him .

If Lukaku allowed himself to get bullied against Lovren and Matip then he needs to be targeting this makeshift defence as his chance to make amends. He can't allow himself to flop in the second high profile game since telling the world he wants to play in big games and win trophies.

The press conference is hilarious, I think. Koeman's lack of giving a fuck does make me laugh:

I think my favourite quote is when he's talking about Lukaku and says 'it's a human boy' like an alien discovering the last vestiges of humanity on a distant planet.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

For whatever reason Dutch never translates very well to English. I suppose that's why he looks so pissed off when they're trying to bait him. I'm finished with the press personally. They are hanging onto their jobs by their fingernails, hence some of the persistent almost interrogation like questions they continually throw at him.

Mourinho destroyed the BBC guy for his laughable initial questions after United's game. They need to earn their corn and stop the attempts to sensationalise. It's getting worse.
Steinbeck's maxim: “Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”.

Last week they were lauding Barkley and asking why Southgate would not play him, this week it's how bad he is/was in the derby. You would think by now they would know that you can't judge a player off one game, football has too many variables to be able to that. That's one of the reasons we love it.
