We won.

For a spell there we were buzzing. I thought that in the second half we had good chances to score but some players choose to go alone rather than play the obvious ball to a team mate in a much better position.

Playing for themselves at 3-0 up I suppose.

It all worked out well and in the end a very pleasing score.

Strange game, that.

Thought we were poor. The attatck took it chances. That was about it.

Defensivly we looked solid, up until a period in the second half. We looked like we were ready to settle for 3-0, sat back and invited pressure and nearly got punished for doing so.

Lindleof had his best game in a United shirt. Hopefully it's the start of a turnaround in form for him. Rojo looks like he has never been away.. I wasn't convinced as some that it should be been a penalty..

Zlatan... how many minutes do we give him before we can start asking him to deliver something? He's had a few now, but he hasn't really had a positive effect on the pitch yet.

Bloody hell SR, are you ever happy? 4 exceptional goals against a half-decent Watford team away at their place & you thought it poor? It was a good performance, one where we could have & should have scored at least 6.

How many minutes do we give Zlatan's before he stats to deliver? Jesus. lol.

I reckon 17 more minutes & there better be fireworks.

"Poor" wasnt the right choice of word. It was frustrating though, IMO. I was very happy with the result and the performance was better than recent weeks. But we got the three goal lead and we sat back and allowed then back into it.

What's wrong with asking the question? I'm not expecting him to reach the level last season, but he sets his standards very high, so I judge him by those standards. I just want to know when we will see him back to that standard.

In fairness the man has come back early from an injury that has been known to end careers. I think his very presence raises the standards but obviously that doesn't always mean goals galore.

Well I thought it was obvious that he can't be expected to come back & start bashing goals in. His career almost ended. Give him more than s few minutes as sub for fucks sake.

He wasn't expected back at all, then not this year. Jose revealed in October that Zlatan had targeted 4th December. He came back in November. Expect some product late Dec or the new year.

I enjoyed the Watford game. Some good work which in the past has come to nought was rewarded handsomely. There was a lapse which suggests a continuing inconsistency over two halves but it was ridden and then overcome in the old, traditional 1990s way.

It was good. The shoots are green.

If you go back over my old posts you will see I think players need to be 'match fit' and playing consistantly to reach their peak. It is also the case with Zlatan.

Admittedly, after re-reading my original post, I explained myself poorly and it came across over critical. Embarassed .
