Speaking of refs the small game this weekend Dippers V Yernited has Martin Atkinson in charge. Apparently this would be good news if Utd were playing Citeh


Why Man United fans should be VERY happy Martin Atkinson is refereeing the Manchester derby - Mirror Online


If Fellaini was playing I could see a Red Card in this game. Mane is not playing and Im just hoping Lukaku doesn't get injured in the meaningless WC qualifier today as allegedly he had an ankle scare injury in the last game for Belgium.


A hard game to call but I will be happy with a Utd 2-1 win and Jose running down the touchline to the Kop after Martial scores a last minute winner.

It can't be overstated how good the news that Mane isn't fit to play on Saturday is...

With the Belgian Poodle out, we have only Matic & Herrera fit to play as holding midfielders, and not having to worry about Mane whilst dealing with Coutinho & Salah will be a big help.

If it were anybody but Mourinho in charge, I could see a very attacking line-up to expose just how shite the likes of Moreno & Lovren truly are.... as it is, this will be cagey, and I just hope OUR defence are having a 'good' day, as that'll be the difference between the teams.

No chance, we can limit them to shots but you only need 2 to score against us. The way we're playing at the minute if we're 5-0 up in the 89th minute I'd still be expecting a draw. My only hope for this season is Lallana and Clyne coming back in and being decent but they're both a way off from playing still.

Maureen's plan is always to draw with your main rivals and beat everyone else by lots. I am betting it is another one of those no shots before half time game

5-0 United.

Never been more confident playing the thieves. With Captain Chaos as manager and Mane out, there is no plan B.

Hopefully some hilarious diving will win us a penalty. It’ll make a lovely change to get a dodgy decision at Anfield.

0-4 United. It's written in the stars..... Liverpool will be on negative goal difference after this weekend.

And you'll still moan about the ref.

If it is true, it’s hilarious because Spurs would now be the team with 25 years of unrivalled success and 2 European Cups, and if it’s bollocks (which I assume it is) then it just amplifies the thought that they are a club beyond parody.

Imagine how insufferable their fans would be if they’d actually won something?

nope - Levy would never have agreed to all the spending required to buy 25 years of success. Old Red Nose would have lasted 18 months max
