Everton conceded 6 in there last 3 scored 0
United conceded 2 scored 7

I predict 4-1 and us back on top

On second thoughts, Everton play like Real Madrid and Rooney and Lukaku gets a hat trick a piece, goal deflected off Phil Jones and we win 4-3

It's one of those games where you can sense Evertons bad run will come to an end. No doubt they'll raise their game and we'll have an off day.

Rooney is bound to get a goal, Lukaku and Fellaini will have shockers.

1-0 defeat

Now that the vermin, the arse and the rent boys have all "dropped" 2 points.
I hope we will finally start capitalising on these sort of results...

Shocked

Pretty poor today, after a great start. Seemed to just expect to cruise to a win and stopped playing.

The result is the difference between this season and last. We can play badly and still get a good win.

On to the next one.. Very Happy

Played badly for half the game, still ran out 4-0 winners. That'll do, winning ugly was missing last season where we could draw beautifully at will. Different this season, it's building.

So...that ended well.

Just need to get the concentration levels up and sustain them throughout the game. Better teams might have punished us.

I'm pleased though and there were also a couple of nice touches:

Rooney's reception.
Martial's penalty.

The table is looking good apart from those other blue cunts.

Played well for the first ten mins and the last ten mins , apart from that we were shocking,
A better side would have punished us,

I don't want to be negative ,but we cannot play like that and expect to be anywhere near a title challenge,

A good result, but a poor performance,

City look a lot slicker than we do at the moment, but we are joint top and they can't go on forever like they are now.

Was a game of 3 half hours for me: 1st half hour they couldn't get out of their half and we should have been 2 or 3 up

15 mins before and after half time was their best spell, a few ropey moments for us, was convinced Sigurdson was going to score again against us at home...

Then last half hour I thought we edged back into it and were well deserved winners

Just out of interest, did Rooney show any appreciation to the supporters yesterday? He got a pretty good reception from us, but never saw him offer anything back.

He was just focused on the job wasn't he? He certainly showed more endeavour for them than he has for us in the last couple of years but I suspect that is because he knows he is past it at the top. The couple of openings he had showed that.

The game wasn't unlike a fair few I witnessed under SAF. I used to feel even back then that if we scored early doors against average opposition complacency set in until it got embarrassing then usually we'd pull something out. The scoreline was justified and not simply because it is what it is but because they only got a toehold as a result of our diffidence.

Personally I thought Rooney was as poor yday as he had been for us in the previous 3-4 seasons, couldn't get my head round some "experts" analysis of his performance:

The below stolen from F365:

You’ve been sensational, you really did your bit
A few facts about Wayne Rooney’s performance at Old Trafford on Sunday as Everton lost 4-0 to Manchester United:

* His 67.2% pass completion rate was the worst of any outfield starter.

* He did not create a single chance for his teammates.

* No other player was dispossessed more often nor lost the ball with a poor touch more often.

* He made one tackle, no interceptions and two fouls.

* He did not score.

And yet according to Danny Murphy on the BBC Sport website he was “sensational”, he also “led the line on his own for much of the game, made chances and held the ball up brilliantly”, he was “absolutely brilliant”. “the shining light for Everton” and “his performance was something the other Everton players should look at and think ‘that is the level we should be at'”.

Yes, they should all aspire to create no chances, score no goals and give the ball away with alarming regularity.

Of course, there is one key statistic we neglected to mention: Eight England squads where the international careers of Wayne Rooney and Danny Murphy intersected, with Steven scouse diving cunt Gerrard and his fellow Scouser Murphy taking it upon themselves to nurture the then-teenage Rooney.

Sensational.



Rooney > Just about everybody
And so back to the ‘sensational’ Wayne Rooney, awarded 7/10 in the Daily Mirror’s match ratings for his performance against Manchester United, which makes him better than Phil Jones, Nemanja Matic, Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku. In fact, only Antonio Valencia was more impressive.

Rooney (7) was ‘given a tough role but never stopped trying to make a difference’ while Lukaku (6) ‘missed a first-half sitter’. A reminder now that Lukaku then went on to assist and score for Manchester United, while Rooney was substituted. At which point he presumably stopped trying to make a difference while Lukaku crucially actually, you know, made a difference.

Bizarrely, the Mirror’s Chief Sports Writer Andy Dunn, who penned the ratings, then wrote this in his match report:

‘Thirteen years later, now an honest but limited grafter, Rooney re-appeared at Old Trafford as a symbol of its past. Lukaku is the muscular, intimidating symbol of its future.’

But yes, 7/10 for the honest but limited grafter and 6/10 for the ‘muscular, intimidating symbol’ of Manchester United’s future.

I don't doubt that. But he doesn't have to acknowledge supporters pre or during the game. He could even celebrate scoring a goal against us. However, the minute he is subbed his game has finished. Just a wave, a thumbs up on his way off the pitch, or even on his way down the tunnel after the game. A message through the media or social media? His failure to do this is just a little disrespectful IMO.

As for his performance, he showed plenty of endeavour. That is all. For me he confirmed we were correct to sell him.

a pretty fair summing-up

In the best of all possible worlds yes but I don't think Wayne exists in anything like that. He seems to live in a world of banana skins of his own making. He's kissed the badge at Goodison, wound up supporters giving him stick, rubbed their noses in it when he's scored. I reckon he started out back there walking a tightrope. I'm not sure how many will have been pleased to see the prodigal son's return so obviously past his best when he really should be bang in it.

Acknowledging our fans a la Brucey is not going to earn him any plaudits. I reckon he just took the diplomatic way out. Interesting Jose thinks he will be back in some role or other.
