You are, I won't argue with that one.

We ain't doing great ourselves at the moment. But after 15 years of seeing United dominate it does make a nice change.

Did you know, we had four English players on the pitch yesterday at one point, who have played together since they were 8yrs old.

Was really impressed yesterday with the Saints. The hunger and desire that you had because of so many players coming through the academy was apparent.

City.. not so much.

I won't lie. I went ****ing berserk when Osvaldo scored. What a goal.

Nasri is a dirty little ******** who should have been sent off. Nice to see Davis just got up and Chambers didn't make a meal of being tripped up.

Did enjoy hearing the Yaya/Kolo song though and still want you guys or Chelsea to win the league

He has got a dirty side and tbh it makes a change. It's good to see him get stuck in.

It was a beautiful goal. You don't mind not winning a game when that is the deciding goal.

Best song in the league. Always reminds me of when we won the league and just being in Manchester with thousands of other city fans singing it.

Have you seen the videos of it going off in clubs and things? Loads of pissed up students just going mad for it. Quality song.

Saints were great yesterday. They look like they have potential to keep on rising. That finish was sublime.

It's been a weird season so far. Even if you take United out of the equation, City, Spurs and Chelski are all dropping points willy nilly! United fans always knew it was going to be a season of transition, although admittedly I didn't think we were going to be this bad!

Unfortunately it's making Le Arse and The Scallies think they are in with a chance.

I want Everton to storm through!

Do you think Keys-ey would 'smash it' though?

Only if he got to explain the offside rule to her first.

It is typical of Al Jazeera. I renewed last month and they never mentioned this. They only let me renew until the end of May because they want to screw everyone over for the World Cup. The last World Cup they couldn't get the joys of English commentary and a picture until day 4 or 5. Their coverage is awful. I don't know why Abu Dhabi sports lost out decent enough coverage plus all matches in HD. I was pissed off because they were going to show a couple of FA cup games and they were not shown. It makes me look forward so much to the World Cup in Qatar.
