Chelsea and Liverpool both took huge steps towards their pre-season dreams, whilst Raheem Sterling and Eden Hazard are selected for special praise. David Moyes, not so much...

You should have added two more lines just to praise Coutinho. Brendan Rodgers has made him a better player. He always had an eye for a killer pass(needs to work on his shooting though) but now his ability to work off the ball is equally wonderful to watch. Take note...he has the making of the best midfielder in the world. He'll eventually get there. He is just 21 years old. All hail the magician!!!

Stirling has definitely improved and is a strong candidate for the world cup, but I wouldn't say he has a better end product than Walcott. Could be the better option in a 4-4-2 (which we shouldn't play, mind). He was fantastic against arsenal, but we didn't half let him play. Sagna wasn't interested in getting close to him at all. Meanwhile, Mertesacker was left stranded in no man's land against the fastest player on the pitch. We would have made anyone with pace look like a world beater on the day.

Moyes's brief at the start of the season should have been to reach the Champions League for next season, he is going to fail in this and no amount of excuses makes up for this. I said in May he was the wrong man, anyone who still disagrees is the equivalent of a child covering their ears and shouting 'na na nana na', wilfully ignoring the evidence. Ferguson was given time, but even ignoring his remarkable achievements at Aberdeen, he showed early promise at United, leading them to second in his first full season, and even when things were going badly after that, there were glimmers of light that things might improve, there was reason to hope. Under Moyes there is no reason to hope, my only hope is that he leaves United, by whatever means, as soon as possible, This isn't lack of patience, I said the same in May, he wasn't good enough then, there was never any reason to give him the job and there's definitely no good reason not to sack him.

This is the same team, that played long balls in the wind against Stoke. I've been following them for 32 years, and i've come to conclusion Moyes has no clue. Like i said before, i can live with defeats, i can't live anymore with the sh*te football we play. He played Mata on the right wing, ffs. Is it any wonder why he hasn't got the best out of Kagawa. Moyes out. Moyes out. Moyes out. NOWWWWWW.

man of ire (Manchester United) says...

I'm living abroad at the moment and I'm about 6 hours behind England. I woke up this morning as usual, reached over for my phone, typed f into the address bar and "football365.com" appeared in the favorites list. Grand. I clicked on it the tab and it started to load the page...all pretty normal. What wasn't normal was that I was hoping to see the headlines scream that Moyes was either sacked or had resigned. It had done neither. To say I was disappointed is an understatement but I'm not sure if I'm still mad or have the blues from all the alcohol consumed over the weekend. What I do know is that I had complete faith in Moyes up until the Stoke display and now I have basically none. He needs time, he needs a midfield, he needs some luck, he needs to have his defense get a run of games together but it also seems that he needs a plan and he doesn't have one. I'd love nothing more to stand by Moyes but at this stage it just feels foolish and I can't keep lying to myself. And the worst thing is that he has already pulled the machine apart, it can't be put back together the way it was and this is starting to look more unforgivable all the time. It seemed stupid at the time and now it just seems horrendous. If Moyes was a winner he'd have left his old staff behind and showed the type of desire needed to succeed by making minor tweaks at United, riding that success and using it catapult him towards future successes he could claim as his own. Instead, he replaced his Bugatti Veron's 1000hp engine with that of an unchipped Ford Focus and expected to win the race on looks alone. I still hope he turns it around but I really don't see how. I want to support him but i don't like being made feel a fool.

What should alarm us about Sundays performance isn't that we attempted 81 crosses in 90 minutes. It was that Moyes said in the press conference that crossing WASN'T part of the game plan in the first place. That is concerning because that would suggest that either 1) the players were attempting a repetitive game plan that wasn't in the managers plans, or 2) that our mananger never once stood up and gave the order to "stop f*cking crossing the f*cking ball you f*cking bunch of half-witted f*cking retards". That's where my frustration lies. That we never, over the course of 90 minutes, attempted to alter our approach to the game. What the f*ck is that all about...............

Ok, so 11 days ago Arsenal were in the Winners section for a poor draw away to Southampton. Yet Stoke, unarguably a lesser team than Arsenal and so should be bigger winners for their exact same result obtained with less talented players, are nowhere to be seen this week. Hmmmmm...

@aceandy79 - Pretty sure he should get a 5-game ban as that's his third red card of the season.

hump333 (Ipswich Town) says...

Honestly @bobsy, on the back of a result as good as Liverpools I wonder why an individual Liverpool fan would resort to such a comment about West Brom. That coming from an Ipswich fan in Liverpool who spent the day celebrating the result with the fans so I know they're not all whoppers.

FrankFan - I was somewhat tongue in cheek given the stereotype most people have on here about us always moaning so was said in jest.

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...

H

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.

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.
