One night in Turin
There’s still plenty of work needed on this squad. Mourinho still may not be the ideal fit for United. And no, we still aren’t “back”.
But my lord, if any United fan can’t get excited about that result, maybe football isn’t for you.

Our most loveable player made that Juan Mata.

Watched the game last night then read the Winterburn piece and I gotta ask if we watched the same game. United matched, mind you matched not outplayed, Juventus in the beginning of the game. It was promising. I don’t know if it was due to tiring or class shining through but after maybe half an hour Juventus started outplaying us. They had numerous chances hit the frame of the goal twice, had numerous other chances (best one in my opinion falling to my fellow Bosnian Pjanic who really should have scored after doing so well to win the ball) and in the end lost due to nothing more than the collective prayer of all United fans and Allegri being outmaneuvered.
Mata in my opinion has been our best player for the past few years. He is semi consistent and really is bloody brilliant at football. Pogba has been shit. He was shit yesterday and has been shit since coming. I don’t know why anyone would question Fergusons judgement of a player. If he sold Messi I wouldn’t buy him back because the man knew more about football than google knows about its users.
Alexis Sanchez was also shit yesterday. Mkhitaryan was hit and miss, Sanchez is just miss. He played well for Arsenal but I get the feeling he needs a zippy tippy tappy game plan to get the most out of him whereas this sort of long ball football just does not work for him.
Lukaku is not a world class attacker but good enough for United currently. Martial and Rashford both have potential to become world class but lots of players have potential for greatness few realize it.
My point being our players are lacking. They aren’t up to par to the crem de la crem of the prem and especially CL. Yesterday we were outplayed by a better team and would have handily lost were it not for Mata and luck.

Don’t be Rash
Great result, commendable performance. But Rashford’s miss ruined an otherwise reasonable replica of the Andy Cole “full speed ahead Barcelona” goal in 1999.
Bloody get in
WOW! What a result! Great to see us capable of coming from behind to win in Turin – there is no way this result can be downplayed as Juve are one of the best teams in the world, defensively they are arguably the best, and yet we managed to come from behind to win! Absolutely buzzing with that result.
Does it mean we are suddenly a great side? No, of course not, anyone with ...
