  1. How many times have we and other clubs been cheated there by shocking officiating, when DiCanio said that even if he was gunned down in the penalty area by a sub machine gun he “might” get a decision he has been proven statistically and factually to be right, Utd despite conceding numerous penalties that haven’t been awarded have lowest amount of penalties conceded at home in premier league history. Utd are beatable they have a lot of great individual players some
    of whom are not great team players, history is there to be made always, we start the match level on points and goal difference with them let’s finish the match superior to them COYI!!!

  2. The past is completely irrelevant. This is a new era.

  3. First time for everything COYI ⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

  4. Just don’t put West Ham in your Acca – and hope for the best – sorted!

  5. Sean – you’re not selling an ISA here. ‘Past performance is not an indicator of future, etc.’. New season, new team, new start. Looking up not looking back. Hahaha.

    So 3-0 to the Mancs then.

  6. Very tough game and a 5-0 home win on paper. However, take into account the weird results at the beginning of every season and the fact that we have dreams that don’t actually fade and die……… 4-0 home win.
