United look so so good, would love martial but if he keeps coming of bench and scoring then he will get his chance, and while they look formidable we are still talking about our small squad and if we're ready to defend this league title .

They've truly, within The first 2 playing rounds, shown The importance of having a strong bench.

United looked that good to you? They struggled to create anything of note during the first half up until Swansea's defense forgot Lukaku was playing and left him all alone on an island in their box.
After that they rolled over for United and didn't bother stopping the ball on counters. I honestly think they didn't look that good. They seemed blazing against West Ham, but they looked quite slow and deliberate today. We'll see what happens when they play some top quality opposition (which is only mid October lol) .

Plus apparently Pogba should've gotten a 2nd yellow in the first half. But he's a United player and not Chelsea so why would a ref send him off, ey.

Spot on Jackson! I agree with everything you just said.

On a side note Matt Martin your getting boring now mate, it's like you have to post every negative thought that pops into your head. Change the record fella we have heard it all before!

You can't blame Matt Martin for the negative posts, there is noting positive to say right now.

Hi Jackson

Sigh, Pogba was rightly booked, but you don't get a card for every tackle and the next one was a foul but nothing more.

I take your point on the difference between this week and last week but they had 11 men behind the ball and were playing for a 0-0. Last year we would have drawn that game, this year we won 4-0. I'm looking forward to playing top teams, we look a completely different outfit this year. Lukaku has given us pace and movement up front which Ibra, for all his talents, doesn't have any more, and Matic has added stability to let everyone else roam free.

Add to that Rashford is a year older, Martial seems to be rediscovering his confidence, Phil Jones looks like the CB we thought he could be and the feel is much more positive,

You can't steam roller every team, but to be slow and deliberate and still win by four works for me.

Cfc17 we all know very well how this window has gone but I don't think we need reminding by Matt 10 times a week. All his posts are the same doom and gloom even when he is replying to a positive comment he has to bring the mood down. Like I said it's boring and brings a negative vibe to the whole page.

Jackson, United are the team to beat. They struggled and still won 4-0, if they wouldn't have won 4 they would have won with the one goal. They look unstoppable and have an aura of invincibles to them. Mourinho has a board that have got him 3 out of 4 targets before the first game of the season and it's proving dividends.

Not a dig at Chelsea as were great at doing deals and saving money, but success wise united are on top.

I've tipped United to win the title since early July, so you don't need to tell me United are the team to beat, Standard. Their squad is loaded with quality and depth. Anything other than a PL title and this season is a failure for them, and I think Jose knows it as well. They really have no excuse not to win it after all their extravagant spending.

AJH, I understand your reply. Lukaku does give you more mobility up front, but he didn't really do anything today. His goal was a gift from the defense coupled with a good pass from Mkhi. Swansea stopped playing after that 2nd goal and you guys made them pay. Good on you, but most teams don't roll over like that after 2 goals. The match was surprisingly even in the 2nd half and Swansea had 1 or 2 extremely good chances to score. And I do mean extremely good. That early shot by Ayew should've been a goal. De Gea was rooted to the spot. Compare that to Stephen ****in Ward scoring a once-in-a-career worldie last week against us, and it's just a difference in luck, not a difference in quality of defense or play. Small margins decide the outcome of games, and today's could've been a lot different if Ayew finishes that or Pogba has the bad luck of having a ref like we did last weekend against Burnley (where he booked Rudiger for breathing near a Burnley player lol) .

I realize you can't steamroll every team, that'd be a ridiculous ask. But Swansea looked like your match in the 2nd half up until minute 80, so we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves here. Enjoy the adoration you'll get in the media this season. They're all fawning over you guys.

Utd have won two games 4-0 and some people crowing as if they've already won the league.
They have good players and a manager with a track record of winning.
That's the compliments finished with!
I can now see why fans disliked Jose. His smug attitude when his team win is so aggravating and his excuses when his team lose are embarrassing!
Of course I loved him when he was our manager!
Give me Conte every day of the week. The bloke is pure class and he gives the club, a long overdue, more appealing profile!
CHAMPIONS of ENGLAND we know what we are!

Jackson I just feel your being harsh at united. I hate them more than anything but got teams win even when they don't play well. United won 4-0 today. by playing poorly. They know how to get the job done.

Diego Costa used to do nothing upfront then nick a goal and win us the game and Chelsea fans praised and praised, Lukaku did that tonight and apparently he did nothing? He got the goal that won the game.

20 Aug 2017 06:04:55
Jackson, I enjoy our banter but you're telling me we were lucky? The League isn't won after 2 games but 4-0 and 4-0 is not lucky mate.

20 Aug 2017 09:29:34
Maybe I phrased it poorly, AJH. Obviously you're not lucky to have won both games. You deservedly destroyed West Ham, and were certainly better than Swansea. But you were a bit lucky to win by that much yesterday, that's all I'm saying. 4-0 was very flattering to your club, and I think you'd find it hard to disagree on that. Swans should've had at least 1 goal and Swansea letting you score 3 goals in 4 minutes is just a pathetic effort, no matter which team you play against. That's as much the fault of Swansea as it is the quality of United.

Standard, don't know which Costa you've been watching but he was always hustling. No matter how badly he played, he always put in a shift for the team. The comparison with Lukaku yesterday is very wide off the mark in my opinion.
