1) man utd has never won a game where both carrick and blind didn't start
2) chelsea only had 37% possession against man utd, their lowest home possession in the last 4 PL seasons
3) chelsea completed only 192 passes against man utd, their lowest total in a league match this season
4) it's chelsea's 10 consecutive games of not outscoring their opponents more than one goal difference... in their past 14 games this year, there are only 2 occasions where they outscored their opponents with >1 goal margin, the last being on 31 January
chicha did well today vs malaga off the bench. i feel he would have been a better lone striker today vs chelsea, this loan deal has been very poor in hindsight.

theres been no news on the extent of carrick and blind's injury so i would presume he will get a couple more chances to start and i really hope he can leave a positive impression in his final games here.
I agree. Chicha was the one loan/transfer that I didn't like. At the very least, he offers a more mobile option upfront. I hope he returns and at least gets another shot.
Falcao's movement were good but no one picked him out, other than the one where he hits the side netting
don't know about this match. but other than couple of early season matches, falcao has been absolutely s**t. his hold up play sucks, his movement sucks, his shooting sucks. but again idk about today's match but until today, he didn't do anything whatsoever to deserve a place in the team next season. and i don't give a rat's ass if he finds his form at some other team next season cause being a 29 year old coming from such a big injury, he is just simply not worth the massive wage and fee. and i would rather see rooney up front anyways.
+6
what that one run he made and hit the post? he was piss poor in the entire game and can confidently say he was the worse player out there today. Your also missing the part that signing this man means we will have to cover his entire Monaco wages which is over 400k a week. Falcao is a bad deal no matter how you look at it. If he was showing moments of brilliance then we can have some kind of talk on the matter but he can't even pick up simple chances and gets knocked off the ball waaaaaay too easy.
didn't get to watch the match. was it a foul on falcao leading to chelsea's goal?
no, Falcao fell too easily
it might be biased
+2
lol nah they haven't been calling those fouls on falcao all season. if he had a better first touch and controlled the ball it would have been a foul obviously as terry just clumsily knocks him over and never touched the ball.
all 3 pundits on sky said it was a foul
+7
yes, it was a foul.
Definite foul
+2
MOD pundits think it wasn't a foul
I am probably in the minority opinion here but it wasn't a foul to me. Falcao went down waaaay too easily
+1
@Bazinga - robbie savage, yes robbie f*****g savage is the one who said he doesn't think it's a foul. phil neville actually said "i can understand why LVG is upset" about the challenge.
Lol yeah... It looked foul to me as well, I have seen many such fouls not given in the same game...tough to take a side here
Guy in my neighborhood said it wasn't a foul
+2
^ guy in your neighborhood is probably a pundit, we can trust him.
it's a foul, the only 2 reasons it's not a foul:
1) you are a chelsea fan, or non man utd fan
2) you hate falcao because you think his first touch is crap

get over it
It's one of those you've seen given many times but also not given many times. Probably depends on how big a turd the ref had that morning.

I think Rooney gets them quite often. But yes, it looked a tad weak from Falcao.
+1
TOD - What's your opinion on Da Gea handball?
@bazinga

gotta give me a picture for that one to assess

as far as i remember it's not a handball as the ball is not wholly outside the penalty area... just like when ivanovic was trying to get a goal kick for man utd but only ~99% of the ball was outside the line but still not enough to bring a goal kick
Just try to tell that both decision above were 50-50 some days refs give and some they won't.
Credit for LVG for bringing confidence, good possession, creative play etc to our team but his substitutions is something i still can't understand.

Bringing in ADM, Januzaj and Blackett into that game changed nothing. Actually it made us even worse.

ADM and Januzaj brought nothing onto that wings. Young wasn't in a great day but i actually think he could have created something in the last mins.

Januzaj was completely absent. Lack of games and confidence. This wasn't the type of game where we should play him.

Blackett for Shaw ? No comments.

Last week he made the 3 changes and at the end Carrick got injured and we played with ten men and conceded a goal to City. Thought we had more minutes to play against City, they could have catch us back.

IMO, he should have bring in RVP for Falcao even thought RVP isn't fit enough he can score one within minutes with his killer instinct.

+1
I think it came to a point where Louie didn't want Shaw re injured so he took him off. Especially after that beast of a performance he put in.
So it sort of made sense to do it as the risk wasn't worth it.
+2
Young and Shaw were double teaming Ivanovic who was on a yellow card. I was expecting another red card for him (all his league red cards have been against Utd lol) then Van Gaal decided to show mercy.
Definitely trying to keep Shaw from getting injured again. LvG will have remembered the first half of the season.
Shaw sub I can understand, the rest I can't. Not subbing of Falcao I can understand lvg was waiting for that one moment, but he hit the post, that is the only time we played Falcao into the box, his typical game and he almost scored. From hero to zero there.

He gotta get out of here, he is not the type of striker we need.
Well i think its about time everyone realized that Januzaj is simply not good enough and that a few good games last season can't justify him being on the first team
+1
^ Jan needed to be loaned, I would not sell him yet, lets see how he does in another league/team. He needs to fight to be in United's shirt.
Ramires's introduction helped massively, since he came on, Shaw was nullified
+1
^thats not even true, didnt shaw create that chace for mata with ramires on the pitch? shaw was taken off so he wouldnt injure himself, i never saw ramires anywhere near him
+3
@SIF

watch the game again. Ramires was not on during that chance created by shaw to mata.

Bluff is right, ramires nullified shaw.
+2
lol? If anything, that chance is why Mourinho brought on Ramires. Re-watch the game bro, Ramires came on in minute 68, Mata came off in minute 69.

There was hardly any threat down the left hand side afterwards, heres the minute by minute in case u don't believe me

people can not be serious about this nani thing are they? like i thought it was one big joke but i think they might actually be serious at this point.
+4
no just some people are just upset at the money spent on di maria, a fantastic player, but not a natural goal scorer. let them whine, it doesn't really matter. he is a quality player and we will get someone in this summer who scores more goals from wide.
+2
No, i'm serious. young and felli both were arguably shite last season and are our best players this season. don't see why we shouldn't give others a chance.
+5
Nani haha that ship has sailed
+1
Scoring goals is the least of Di Maria's problems. His overall play is shocking. He'll get the odd assist every now and then after a shocking performance so yeah that's defiantly worth the 60M
+1
I'm sorry, what quality do you speak of if he can't beat a single defender?
Ignore the price tag, ignore the fact that he's wearing the #7 shirt, ignore all that and you still get a player who is completely lost on the pitch.
Look at Hazard. Now that's a 60 million signing. Perhaps not a natural goal scorer, but he plays with such confidence, pace and flair that bamboozles defenses and he is the kind of player United need and not someone who can't even beat his man.

I'll repeat myself again...it has nothing to do with Adm either.
I want Nani back because i believe he will be rejuvenated under Van Gaal, i'm sure of it.
+5
he has 10 assists mate, more than your golden boy hazard. thats a quality.

hazard is brilliant in tight spaces but today he was running at acres of space and we were trying to get by a blue bus today man. di maria has plenty of flair and creativity, hard to show all that playing 20 minutes against a mourinho team.
+1
'20 minutes against a mourinho team'? Ok what about all the other games he's featured in? 3 of those 10 assists were his fluke shots that fortuitously landed on our strikers' feet.
to be honest IF PSG gives us a good offer for ADM, we can Maybe consider selling him for PSG's player as a swap, while his price tag is still high.

I would still though give ADM 1 more year to see where this will take us (which is a risk as price may go down for sure and interest will be lowered if he fails to perform), but to be honest I like our midfield even when he is on a bench. We only need to focus on defense purchases + 1 more striker really. And yes I guess we can look into another WC winger if 1 is available.
+1
Not sure what you're talking about SIF. Hazard has 15 assists, 11 of which were in the PL this season.
+4
Not sure about solely using assist to even compare Di Maria to Hazard.
+2
^ that's the only retort Di Maria apologists have to defend him with.
His assist/goal tally and then they point out how he's not a 'natural goal scorer' and keep repeating 'quality quality quality' = argument won.
@ jeroen whats your source?

http://www.espnfc.us/barclays-premier-league/23/statistics/assists

http://www.whoscored.com/Regions/252/Tournaments/2/England-Premier-League

that's ADM's strength, chance creation. he led all of europe in that category last season.

no one is arguing ADM is a better player. just because YOU don't rate him doesn't mean he isn't a quality player. his pricetag is irrelevant. it's already been established we overpaid.
+2
Sif i said many times i'm not picking on ADM's pricetag and/or because i am holding a grudge against Nani's treatment.
Yet you keep bringing it up as you aren't even willing to acknowledge that.
I keep going on about how shocking his overall play is (he can't even get basics right) and you keep going back to his assist/goal tally, and how good he was last season for RM.
Nani has been at united since 2007. What is this nonsense about him not being giving a chance? He wasn't even treated bad here especially after ronaldo's sale which was his time to step up and he failed to do so. During his time here, last year was the only time he was sent out on loan. Nani was given his chances and he wasted it. Its ridiculous to even compare him to ADM who is in his first season here. If someone is willing to pay alot of money for adm in the summer though, i agree we let him go.
there was nothing shocking about his play today imo. it's two vs 1, blackett never even tried an overlap, made it way too easy to have him shut down. adm tried some creative passes, tried to run at players. not easy given how chelsea was set up.
@gohonaf: Moyes didn't give him much of a chance when he took over as well as injuries did him in. Rojo deal meant Nani went the other way without LVG seeing much of him this season.

What we meant by given a chance, is of course under the new boss LVG.

He still has 4 years on his contract anyway.

Nani vs ADM: (lol. just for laugh)

LVG aftergame presser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXLRSCh5ldg

thoughts?
Love how he stood up for the team. LVG could have just walked away instead of explaining each detail by what he meant 'good performance in his opinion' to those simpletons. With the given squad today, I do think we did well, what LVG said was right. We just lacked one or two better finishes (the Rooney miss and Falcao's post) or else we shouldn't have lost this game.

All players wanted to hear from manager is 'proud of my team.' We'll come back strong next week.
+1
positive points:
Shaw and McNair did well especially Shaw. It's been a while so i forgot how good he is and could be in the future

Despite injuries, we played much better than i expected. Yes, there was lack of created chances but we had 70% possession at Stamford Bridge ffs

Still in top 4

Now let's move on and focus on next game. It's going to be tough imo. If im not mistaken Everton last home defeat was back in Dec. Hopefully few of the injured players will be back then. We really missed Carrick today
Only if Blind wasn't injured, he would be playing as CDM so Herrera can stay up there and link up plays. Curse you Kompany
+1
Mourinho is a genious! He's turned world class players into time-wastings, bus-parking twats and Hazard.
Forever an antagonist of Football. The football his team plays always disgust me.
Hazard was the difference. Brilliant player.
+2
Yet his players have scored most goals in PL this season.... If anything all the players have improved under him and have what it takes to win big games
+4
I hate the football his teams play but respect the man.
+2
Where is Fellani today?
+1
There are games they totally overpower opponents. on occasions they don't, they grind out 1-0 wins. Quite some masterclass although his tactics are not entertaining somtimes, it does get him results.
+5
Love him or hate him he knows how to win the games, and players do mature very quickly with him it seems.
+6
^ I think its because you're either mature or out. So its impossible to be immature and be part of his team.
i dont know why people are hating on mou,we've grinded out 1-0 wins,2-1 wins by luck this season and we've said "aslong as we win and get 3points who cares how bad we played"..i could care less how defensive we played and ended up scoring with only 1 shot at goal rather than have 20 shots at goal and only score 1 or worse,not score AT ALL..
+4
@Zhenwei "not entertaining somtimes" sometime is a bit understatement lol more like Always :)
+1
Anyone think De Gea should be doing better 1v1? He let that shot from Hazard go in straight through his legs. He doesn't look like his usual self lately.
+2
Hazard was too fast, and i think DDG was surprised he took the shot low and fast.

A bit harsh for DDG, i think he did well for most of the game.
