    Agreed.
    We just need a solid side with round pegs in round holes, and then a few match-winners.
    We do have match-winners, if deployed properly.

    Will we still have serious relegation fears?

    None. We'll comfortably secure 17th on Match day 38 :p

    A nice cup double will do.

    We’ll win the Europa League, and finish 6th.

    Utd just got pumped 3-1 at home by Palace.

    Palace got a very lucky penalty when Lindelof was adjudged to handle it (he was just running along in the box when Ayew strangely chipped it suddenly).
    Then De Gea saved Ayew's terrible penalty. But was harshly adjudged to have left his line and it was retaken.

    Two harsh calls in a row never happen at Old Trafford.

    Assuming Spurs aren't fighting with Pool to win the league, these are the sorts of teams we will be fighting with, and need to hope lose.

    That's the Sissoko handball in the CL final all over again. Mane flicked it on purpose is what I saw with my rose tinted lens.

    These handball penalties are a reason that VAR is not good for the game, its a manipulation of the new system and for me. Flicking the ball up to hit someones hand for a penalty is not football for me, if thats how the game is going you can keep it

    Surely it's how the rules are drawn and then interpreted that is the issue, not the VAR? I know VAR allows the opportunity to review the action, but the laws have to be a little less daft.

    Yeh if they have changed? I dont know if they have or not. I just take it on face value and its silly

    But teams are purposely adapting their game to take advantage of the fact that video refs will give a penalty for any touch on the hand, thats just annoying regardless, people just dont seem to show any common sense.

    I've had a good look at the wording of the rules now.
    Basically if the ball strikes the hand/arm below the shoulder it's handball. However, The rule explicitly lists exceptions when the ball ricochet of the players head, body or foot, as well as ricochets from a team mate or opposition player, or the arm is firmly tucked in. Same goes with a player falling and hits the arm, if the arm is used to protect from the fall. (a Klinsmann type dive ad ball hitting the outstretched arm, would be handball).
    From this we can conclude that the penalty against united was correct according to the rule (ball hit outstretched arm directly), but the penalty against us was wrong (richoched into the arm from team mate).
    But, in a sensible world, neither should be ruled handball.

    Agreed. Funny that Winks, the midfield player, has his arms tucked behind his back, and D'oherty, the defense has his arm out. I guess he'd just watched the start of the CL with Sissoko...

    getting back into CL would be a success already for me. competition for top four seems tougher this year with the top 6 teams seemingly spending well.

    This tune sums up my mood for the coming season.

    To say nothing of the wikked homegrown sativa (Green Crack) and indica (Hindu Kush) buds I've been sampling off the burgeoning pot plants in my backyard:
