A Draw Won't Do For Jose At Man City...

Winning a point away at Manchester City might be regarded as a good result, but not when it's the best chance you have of gaining ground. Nick Miller previews the weekend...

@tom33. One commenter by the name of 'lankymanc' did write that United had turned a corner, he told him to settle down until after the Arsenal game, I didn't think things would remain so dreadful. While Moyes is at United there is no cause for optimism, no matter who is signed.

Clever old Mourinho has somewhat backed himself into a corner. He can hardly park the bus with the world watching after his comments about West Ham, and if they really go for it City will smash 'em up on the counter. Shame Kun is out, but Negredo is back and Jovetic may get the chance to add to his own tally.

Sorry, I don't usually criticise articles, but this is utter nonsense. Anyone would take a draw at the Etihad and rather than worry about losing ground in future, Mourinho would be happy if they don't lose ground this weekend. Anything can happen in 14 games. 100% record at home and you are suggesting Chelsea wouldn't be satisfied to still be 3 points behind on Tuesday morning? Man Utd, away, Arsenal away, Liverpool away, plenty of places where City can drop points and it would only take a problem for Kompany and/or Negredo and it is back on again.

nufc83 (Newcastle United) says...

@Jimbob87 - what a load of utter nonsese. Cabaye went on strike in the summer when Arsenal were rumoured to be after him and he clearly expressed his desire to leave again. Newcastle had a top quality midfielder for 2 and half years and made a £15m profit on him. Hardly bad business. As for saying the money from selling Carroll stayed in Ashley's wallet, that's just plain wrong. Since the sale of Carroll, Newcastle have spent a reasonable amount on money and the sale funded the signings of Cabaye, Debuchy, Sissoko, Gouffran, Anita, Santon, Cisse and left the squad in a stronger position. Hopefully the same will happen again after the sale of Cabaye and our recent transfer business suggests it will.

jimbob87 (Peterborough United) says...

Newcastle are doomed to spend the rest of the season plummeting towards the bottom and only have their early season form to thank for giving them a chance to stay in the league. The sale of Cabaye was not inevitable and if they had shown some balls they would have kept him until the summer. Instead JFK and Ashley opt for a quick buck, make some half-arsed efforts to get other players in (the rumour about Grenier saying the offer for him was "unfair" for Lyon has more than a whiff of truth about it) before claiming that they couldn't get players "over the line", but that money will go into Ashley's wallet and stay there like the Carroll money did. The entire set-up and ethos of the club now is to finish 17th. No effort was made in the cups, every plan at the place is just to sign low, sell high, get just enough points to stay up, and call that a good job. It is rotten and until the fans vote with their feet this is the way things will continue. Without Remy as well on Saturday they don't have an ouce of inspiration that isn't Hatem Ben Arfa, who, on current form, doesn't lend itself to optimism.

As has been said, there are absolutely no United fans treating a 2-0 home win against Cardiff as being a sign that we're back in business. Any optimism we have is solely down to the Mata purchase and the suggestion that more exciting signings could be on the way. Good to see F365 trying to stamp out any optimism United fans might have though. It's almost as though you guys want the mailbox to be full of miserable Mancs.

Mourinho would be delighted to leave the Etihad with a point despite your attempts to say a 3 point gap being tough to bridge. It's 3 points!! Nick we come here for football reasons and do not care if you have a school girl crush on Cabaye. I am sure you are one of your buddies at Sky could get his number if you love him that much

red_robbie (Manchester United) says...

I echo Ted - I didn't see any united fans on the forums I am part of rejoicing over that result, it looks like you've used a bit of artistic licence there. Also you haven't explained at all why it's a big weekend for united or arsenal, rather just repeated what went on last week

macduff says...

I think Chelsea would take the draw at City now, the most important thing for Chelsea will be not to lose and still be within one result of City

ted, manchester (Manchester United) says...

No United fans are rejoicing after Tuesday's result. Happy we won? Sure. Optimistic for the rest of the season? Not even close.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
