The British media thinks klopp is some kind of saviour just because of his cheesy interviews and touchline antics. We might have played crap that day but we’re not the team that has 1 win in 8 game. Klopp is a fraud and the media covers up for him, I wasn’t happy with how we played on Sunday but at least I know we have a manager who hasn’t a plan b.

Mourinho had some very interesting tactical points after the game. The essence of it was, yes, we set out to be solid defensively. BUT Mourinho also anticipated Klopp making an attacking change later on in the game. Perhaps if Liverpool had taken off 1 midfielder and replaced him with an attacker, we would have opened up more at that juncture. It's a valid point, it's not like we could have started the game with another midfielder considering they're all injured. Herrera works best in a midfield 3 and was forced to focus more on defense in a double pivot with Matic, so that limited our breakouts from defense.

So it was sly from Mourinho, but also partially true--Liverpool didn't do anything to open the game either. Now from their perspective there was no urgent need to, considering they had more of the possession, but the fact remains that neither team took additional risks. And I think that shows that Klopp was more content with a draw than he wants Liverpool fans to believe.

All that aside, yes I'm also tired with the Klopp love affair. I find him to be a likable guy generally, but he's not without his faults, and he often comes off as childish to me on the touchline, flailing around at the smallest thing. Call it passion if you like, but to your point, Moyes had a better win percentage at United than Klopp does at Liverpool.
+3
His touchline reaction is starting to get annoying. It's perfectly okay to do it during special moments, but every single goal? It starts to feel silly.
+2
Klopp's a lil tantrum-throwing beyooootch
Not worried. Both games that we have been poor came from after internationals break but other than that we have been good. We've been demloished by Liverpool in both games in the past such 08/09 for example but we end up winning the league. As the saying goes lose the battle but win the war
Why the f**k is Jose talking about PSG? This is the part of Jose that I don't like.
mind games. anything to deflect attention from how s**t we were against pool. same with pogba and france etc..hes just loading press up with bs.
yea i was pretty disappointed to read that too. oh well, it might just be a trick to get offered a new contract since his current contract will be ending in a year and half. but whatever, as long as he delivers a league title in this season or next, i will be okay with him leaving for whatever club he wants.
He said very nice things about CSKA, because he was asked questions about them. So unless he decided to grab a reporter and say " hey I have something I want to tell you, I think PSG are magical" I'm not going to pay much attention to it. Almost every manager would say they are good right now. It's also being reported that he has been offered or will be offered a new 5 year contract.
It's not a surprise he will move on from united. It's just a matter of when
Contract moves already? He must be gone before third season syndrome occurs. If we still love him, just hire him again after he is gone.
he said his son went to paris instead of manchester to watch a football match. whats the big deal? with neymar dembele and cavani, that's the best front 3 in europe right now in terms of form.
Neymar, Cavani and Dembele???

I mean i guess its easy to Dembele and Mbappe mixed up.

On an unrelated point, do you happen to know Andre Marriner?

EDIT: oh you changed it, you're no fun!
Lol i was thinking of what the closest trio to psg would be and it's messi, suarez dembele but on current form psg wins and thats why i didnt say best front 3 instead of in the best form.
Aaaaah fair point. To be completely honest minus Messi i would argue their front 3 are a bit lacklustre right now.
lol fine i can change it back

and yeah suarez is not on form but everyone knows he is better than cavani. messi obviously a better player than neymar despite neymar's increadible form. dembele and mbappe are about the same for me. mbappe seems to have more composure but both are outstanding and have similar qualities.
Doubtless i would agree that Suarez is indeed a better striker than Cavani when on form, the same would be said in regards to Messi compared to Neymar. However if youre talking about in the closest comparison to PSG's front 3 in terms of form right now i would probably put the likes of Manchester City, Napoli and Dortmund above Barca as it stands.

In my opinion Messi has been the only stand out performer in their front line so far this season.
im better than Suarez based on his current form
Posted this in the EPL forum - thought this might be a good place too:

So it is Mourinho's way to go to a rival and look for a point. Except for, that might not work out that well this year, with so many rival teams. That's why I think this approach is irking so many United supporters.

I personally think United this year have the firepower to go and attack. What is so extremely scary about a Liverpool team without Mane that has not won in the last 7 games? With all due respect to Liverpool, United should have taken the chance to get 3 points.

I don't buy the argument 'it is better to win trophies than entertain' when really going for 3 points is going to get you closer to the trophy. Stifling Liverpool of 2 extra points is not going to win United the trophy. Liverpool really isn't their direct rival this year. If Mourinho does that at the Etihad I can totally get it.

Liverpool have a goal difference of 1 with 12 goals being scored against them already. Don't tell me United is not capable of putting a few past them at this stage when they are most vulnerable.

What promised to be the one of the best games in the league has become one of the worst ones to watch, honestly
+5
Here is the thing. Mourinho has no obligating ( he feels ) to make this the best game in the league. Secondly, we did not go to win one point. We went there to make sure we at least get 1 point. If Lukaku scores that goal, would this be even a topic of discussion?

I wanted us to go out there and batter them but i knew we were never going to do that. Why should mourinho change the way he plays or his 'Philosophy'? Would Pep change the way he plays? Nope.

We do entertain. We are the second highest scoring team in the league. If we play like this for 5 games out of 38, it is not right to say that we do not entertain.

Yes, its ugly to watch but this is how Mourinho likes to play in big away games. Us fans will have to get used to that. I will take this anyday over the last 3 years Tomi. Anyday. It was hard watching united play for 3 years! Unbearable and now a manager has finally (at least it looks like) has got us back on track and i am happy about that and if it mean we will have to watch a s**t show for FIVE or SIX games in a season, i will take it for now.
+2
Totally agree to your points. Mourinho is not obligated to entertain and United has definitely entertained this season. No questions about that.

My question is why give Liverpool so much respect when this was the chance to run them over. I do of course acknowledge that Mourinho is the manager and I am just a plain football fan but at some point you ask yourself - can mourinho afford to do this against arsenal, Chelsea, city, spurs liverpool? My thought would be no. There are too many too teams for this tactic to work. You cannot try to stifle 5 major opponents by potentially sacrificing your own points. Last season this would have still made sense since mourinho was building a way of playing. This year the team is so much better - precisely why the fans expect to give their ol scouser friends a walloping when you can.
+5
I was frustrated with our approach however I was more annoyed that we couldn't string a few passes together without losing the ball.

There were so many occasions where we were in liverpools half and then we'd pass the ball back to de Gea. He probably had more touches of the ball than Lukaku.
Playing Jones and Smalling was our downfall, neither of them know how to play the ball out of the defence. That's why they kept passing sideways & back to the keeper.
+2
tomi, i think the idea is that a loss at this point is unacceptable for united against a rival so a draw, while hard to swallow, leaves no joy for us either. it's a pretty smart move on his part especially considering our defense has been shaky. a draw isn't ideal but it's acceptable, but with our record of letting in goals despite low percentage opportunities, it's almost a win/win(ish) considering how good united's defense has been (props to ddg). coming away from a hostile ground with a point ain't the worst thing in the world.

again, with you that i'm just a fan and not a tactical genius that's won trophies unless you count the middle school team i coach where everyone gets a participation trophy ;)
+1
There are very few teams in the world that can pass the ball as normal under the pressure Liverpool put on teams. That's why they do well against the top teams but struggle against others. United have good strength in depth but with the midfield injuries of Pogba and Fellaini the options needed to counter the press was very limited.

So Mourinho went extra safe, like last year. With Pogba on the pitch and a Fellaini off the bench option, United would have had a lot more chances in the match. So I'm relaxed and content for now.
I don't believe there would have been a single man Utd fan who's OK with such pathetic performance few years back, in precise during SAF era,lol. I
+2
4ever i agree with you 100% that is why more and more united fans are leaving the club and becoming City fans. My real estate agent said his son had season tickets but decided to trash it down the toilet and stopped watching united games all together. To play with 6 at the back and waste time against a team like Southhampton...now i see why Ferguson was so against hiring Mourinho. I think United played better football under Van Gaal and Moyes than now.
+2
You didn't even watch UTD during SAF era did you? He created a very good attacking team but that is not why he was so successful. His best trait was grinding out results week in week out. Those 1-0 wins led to titles.

Am I happy with Mou defensive approach? Hell no! But i'm not gonna whine because we all knew this about him when he took charge. Let the man do his job the way he wants and judge him by the result at the end of the season.

UTD fans becoming City fans? LMAO. Those are not fans, just glory hunters. City can have them since they fit right in
"let the man do his job the way he wants and judge him by result at the end of the season"?? LMAO so what you are saying is that you are ok playing with 6 at the back and wasting time and kicking the ball out every time you have an opportunity against mid table teams? This is bad for the image of United my friend.

i wouldn't call them glory hunters. Its more like beautiful attacking football hunters, which everyone fan in this world deserves.
+3
Don't feed the troll
+1
Yea right, because SAF had an incredible record at Anfield.

Go on FootballisCity, tell us more about how we played better football under moyes and LvG.

Joey is right, account created yesterday, makes sense.
+1
Hahaha what a troll!
Lol... united fan becoming City fan ... next thing you know he'll have us believe Micheal Jackson is still alive and good
yes their leaving a world class renowned top club with loads of trophies to support a team on par with aston villa. 100%
lol you should know the word "fan" comes from fanatic right? Meaning someone who is unconditionally devoted to what he/she supports. People who switches clubs so easily is not even a fan. That is why CP still has fans, Sunderland still has fans, Portsmouth still has fans. They dont simply go and support other clubs because their club is doing badly.

Of course a City supporter like you wont understand any of these.
@footballiscity - thx for destroying a good thread and totally changing the topic. I am beginning to believe you just love to annoy everyone best you keep off other team pages if you cannot show respect

@others - what fun are you getting out of this conversation about fans? Just ignore the nonsense please. What a stupid topic to fill the page
+2
@Tomi, Tbf Liverpool always show up against Utd. No matter the form. Utd have injuries and players have just come back from the international break. So I'm not sure how confident Jose was going into this game. In arguably the biggest game of the season so far for Utd, a draw against Liverpool is not bad, compared to the hell critics will give if Utd had lost to Liverpool. I feel on another day, Jose would have gone for the win but I just think he went for the more undesirable measured approach.
Moe that makes sense - just one detail though - I don’t think Liverpool is a same level rival for United this season I see a good 15 point gap by the end of the year. Which is why I keep saying that this tactic makes sense - just not against current day Liverpool. Maybe against City or Spurs yes.

Of course - no offense to pool - they just have to go through another cycle I think this team has run its course truly and i don’t see them finishing in the top four (I’ve love to see them make me eat my words but they just don’t have the squad depth at the moment)
If we draw top 5 teams away from home and win 33 other games we would get 104 points, enough to win the league. Of course we will not win all of the 33 other games, but you can clearly see where Mou is coming from.

But if we park the bus against city at Old Trafford I will be upset.
+1
@tk, I actually watched plenty, you only get it if you understand there's a diffrence between playing defensively and parking the bus!
+1
it's typical mourinho.. nothing has changed. we did have some injuries (bailly, pogba), but the way we performed indicated we just didnt want to lose. it is so frustrating to play like that.
4ever, if parking the bus results in 21GF after 8 matches, I hope Mou parks it all season long. If you are talking about Southhampton match, then you should know it was a good decision by Mou. It was a thin lead and UTD players were playing horribly. Southhampton was bossing the midfield. At that rate, a goal was coming.
So are you saying parking the bus isn't playing defensively? What kind of logic is that? Yes, there is a different between looking for a tie and playing counter to win but both are defensive styles.
I frustrates me that Mou went in Liv match with defensive mind and yes, a lot of Utd arent happy about it. However, don't tell me SAF never did the same thing. There were many matches when he was playing for a tie. It's call strategy. The league is won by points.
Former Man United academy Tom Cleverly scored against Arsenal. Oh dear, I feel for you gunners.
+1
Ah TC23 one of the finest English midfielders of his generation
+2
Chelsea lost to CP (worst team in the league).
ARS lost to Watford
I am just waiting on City to fall off the grid soon, hopefully sometime soon caz they just look scary good.
Yet, we are only two points behind. We just have to keep up the pace with them and hopefully after December we might see a different city.
Watford are in the top 4 lol.
It is still early days, and as long as both Manchester teams keep defeating minnows they are going to be in the hunt. I think it is sort of important for both teams to arrive at the Derby game without too much daylight between them in terms of points.

While I do have a point of view on United's attacking intent given today's game (topic for another day) saying that City and United are too far apart this season is too simplistic. They are two teams with different, proven philosophies moving towards the same goal. This is going to be fascinating.

City do have some easy games coming up though :P
+1
Look a bit like fifa all the top teams in mid table lol
+2
Watford have a very good manager I think. He is someone people should keep an eye on.
^Especially Arsenal
Wenger going nowhere, unless they rename the club
What has a better ring to it - Marcol or Silval?
i just watched the highlights and holy s**t we were lucky to get a point out of that match a more competent team like city would totally hammer us if we were to put out the same kind of performance and tactics. if city keep going at this rate i can see them achieving an "invincible" season they have so much quality all over the pitch.
+2
I think it was ridiculous for Mou to go into a derby with a gameplan like that. Disgraceful even
+4
If we play like we did today versus City, well.... it will be one dull and nervous match. And we will be played off the park

What totally sucks is that we do have the quality to give liverpool a good spanking but instead of going for the win, we were set up right from the start to see the game out defensively and offer nothing going forward.

Some of the players performance were just horrible. What the hell was Mkhi doing all game? I cant think of one good moment he had. Martial was playing at Left back...jeesus. And Ashley young is the go to option on the right flank.
I personally don't feel like today was a bad result. Sure we could of used more entertainment in a derby but what do you expect with "rockstar football" Liverpool.

Anfield is a really difficult place to play coming off a break like that. I didn't like the 3-5-2 and thought Ashley Young could hold the left side himself. Martial did good tracking back, but definitely more effective when asked to fulfill offensive duties only. I hope we don't use the 3-5-2, as our defense looks just as effective in a 4-4-2.

Individually, we need some players to step it up in the absence of our key playmaker. Mkhi especially.
+1
I don’t see ya beating out City for the title this year. Obviously I will still be rooting for it to happen and I still have hope but with how good they are and our inability to have balls against the top sides...I just don’t see it. Don’t chalk this down to a bad performance. It was absolutely the game plan coming into the game just as it always is. I’ve loved watching our team play this season and I think we are a very good side but he is just too afraid to give it a go.
Still early days nothing is won or lost at this stage of the season. If they playing like this around April then yea you start to worry.
Just watched the highlights and we didn't deserve a win. We barely deserved a draw out of that. Pool will be disappointed they didn't get all 3 points.
+5
A shame we didnt make use of their poor form. But we continued their poor form nonetheless, just 1 win in their last 5 games.
City are just unreal. They're almost walking into Stoke's net with the ball...
+2
Stoke are unreal to how they bend and roll over against other teams. Don't forget chelsea beat then 4-0. City will probably score more at this rate.
+2
The goal we conceded to them were from our own making. They strong at home but rather s**t playing away
Well to be fair unlike us city actually finish teams off and go for more goals. We always content with only scoring four
Scoring 4 goals in not finishing teams off?
+2
I think this season city are different class compared to others. Unless they screw up, they will be champions with games to spare.
Me channeling my inner optimism: If we win all our remaining games, we can win the title.
yaldho it is but the majority of the 4 goals were scored late. We never finish teams off early
+1
Two things:

1) I'm happy this pathetic excuse for a team got pummeled but that also makes me feel
a) weary of how good City are
b) upset that this is the team that played out of their skins against us

2) Is the gulf in quality between us and city the Stoke game? Playing at Britannia notwithstanding, we only managed a goal against them compared to City's 7....a telling sign?
+1
Ok that I agree.
lol should've said that the first time. It seems we are winning those 4-0 games by stamina the way we only managed to score more goals until we wear them down. Two times we came back from intl break, we lacked spark and energy. Dont think it is a coincidence.
No mate. We are not beating team beacuse of 'Stamina'. We are beating them because we are scoring goals that we deserve from our performances. Let try to keep our heads here. One draw at Anfield does not mean everything up till now have been a fluke.
Our record at stoke is not that great
DDG deserve a statue of himself already in front of OT. I just rewind back the whole game to find that save and I watched it 10x, but it's NOT enough.
70% of the world is covered by water, the rest is covered by De Gea.
+3
Easily the best goalie in the world right now. He just makes ridiculous saves look simple
Only worry is Navas is getting too old. He's only got a season or 2 left.
Easilly best in the world
@MU2017 Kante strongly disagrees
Fair enough. Kante too deserves to have a statue all around the world, since he's everywhere.
@Drogbalampard - Oh he can have Mars too if he wants...Earth is not enough space for him. I still remember one of the games last year he went and retrieved his own pass.
