    If you go to a place like Old Trafford and try to stifle and slow them down eventually you get what you deserve.
    Totally different match plan from the last three games and left Grigg so isolated on his own.
    Brought on Yanic for pace but soon after took off the only striker at the club and no further positive options on the bench.
    Two of the pointless signings had a run out but hopefully we won’t be seeing them again.
    Let us hope we get back to the style and approach we had for the three wins.
    Very disappointed today but at the end of the day we were playing the bank but just wish we could have been more positive and not have just put up a brick wall.
    Could we have lost with a greater score?

    Totally agree……I wonder how the other underdog teams who won or went close set up at the start.What’s the point in trying to hold on to 0-0 for 90 mins ? Yes a lot of effort but only 1 striker at the club and a shit load of midfielders is laughable. If we do cash in on Wildschut then I hope we’ve got some non loaned goalscorers lined up sharpish….somehow I thing that money will go towards our league 1 campaign.

    We’ve scored 1 goal at Old Trafford in what 9 goes and that was a last minute Baines penalty in 2006 I think.

    We were 1 minute away from a perfect 1st half performance.

    You really didn’t think we were going to go gung ho at them did you – they would have scored a hatful similar to their 3rd if we had.

    We should have been 1-0 up if Jacobs had connected instead of that air shot in the 1st half.

    Morseys performance showed the class difference between the PL and the Championship. He was fairly anonymous today.

    That was one of our better performances there and we should be OK for the rest of the season.

    4th bottom will do at this stage then we can take stock and consolodate ready for next season.

    Wonder how Wycombe approached it at Spurs…..no gung-ho just take em on and put THEM under a bit of pressure, Christ it wasn’t the strongest Utd team .If we lose so what but that was insipid…..4th from bottom will do but not a chance unless we get strikers in…..cos I’m sure you’ve notice we are championship lowest scorers and playing Grigg as we do are you surprised he’s 1 goal in 17 games ???..Joyce has steadied the ship but needs to be more attack minded….we’ll he could be had we more than 1 forward..@@@@@@g joke.!!!

    Utd’s 2nd 11 is stronger the Tottenhams I’d argue ……………

    Anyway Friday and the Norwich home games are more important.

    Must be our bogey team Runcorn. That Utd side today weakened must have cost around 300 million quid and had some good players. Must be a nightmare for any manager to decide what to do. May have made a difference if we had been given the penalty. Not to worry Friday is more important and we will bounce back. Just hope we sign a striker or two permanent and not a loanee.

    That United team today would hold its own in the top six of the PL and would be capable of beating all the others around them on their day.
    It may have been weakened slightly but any of the players they had out their today would get a place in any other PL side.
    Like donny said, there was about £300M worth of players on the pitch, and probabaly only about £8M pounds worth at the most had white shirts on.
    We gave a pretty good account of ourselves on the whole especially in the first half, and actually had 5 shots on target to their 4.
    We weren’t embarrassed and probably looked as good, if not better than in any of our previous 8 visits to OT.

    We got beat by 4&5 when we had so called Prem players so our current heroes have nothing to be ashamed of. Lets cut the guys some slack and get behind them on what is hopefully a table climbing few months. Up the Tics.

    I agree but if our team selection had of been abit braver. We were unlucky, every chance we had went straight down the keepers throat
    Shots on goal
    Utd 4 Latics 5

    I put a status up on Facebook, regarding the fact that we will lose 4-0, when people asked me what score it would be I said it will genuinely probably be 4-0 although it sounds cliche.

    Now I have people asking me if I am psychic .. when they do I ask them if they are deluded… We always lose 4-0 to United!!

    Why oh why I didn’t back it up with a bet I have no idea, if I did though, would have been more than a 5er filmoss.

    Shame I no longer bet. :(

    Fair play on that one Bullitt :lol:

    I meant I no longer regularly bet, once every goodness knows how long.
    To be fair this is something I am going to safely say I should have had a bet on :P
