Spurs celebrating like they have just won the league. I guess that's what beating Man Utd means to some teams. Absolutely abysmal performance in the first half and an incredible performance in the second and we deserved at least a draw and that's not even mentioning the penalties.
Typical Utd supporters response. You just can't take a fair beating. How long is it since they won at Old Trafford? I think they deserve to celebrate a bit. The cracks showed last week at Anfield even if Utd won. They aren't looking good. Oh, and you got your penalty against Liverpool last week.
Typical United hater can't concede that United should have got the result in the second half after hitting the bar 3 times and could have got at least one penalty. We had 80% possession in the second half, that says it all!
@buddymagoo, I never said I was a Utd hater. i'm not. Difference is I don't get butt hurt when my team loses.
Hold on!? You don't get butthurt when your team loses? does it happen that often that your butt has become immune? I must just be more passionate about my club. Of course I'm butt hurt we played really well second half and deserved at least a draw is all I'm saying. You must have either not been watching the game or be blind to not admit United deserved more out of the game.
United fans are upset about the result, feel 3-2 to complain to your manager about picking the wrong referee this week.
@buddymagoo - Don't worry. I'm sure your Chairman, David Gill(unsurprisingly also a member of the FA board) will make sure Howard Webb(the best signing Fergie ever made) officiates your next game.
Wow buddy.. just wow. Can't you give the opposing side credit for ONCE? You really are a terrible biased supporter. Yea maybe United didn't get what they deserved but hey.. thats football. Just like how Liverpool didn't get what they deserved last week when they were down to 10 men for half the match, yet gave United a good challenge. GTFO of this site. No really.. GTFO!
Come on, man. You've been cool for a while but right now you come off as an ass. It was a great game and yeah they were celebrating because they haven't beaten you since what 1989. Get off your high horse, it's not because of who you are, any team with a losing record that long against another team would celebrate like that for a win. You really gotta ease up, I know you're a big United supported but seriously. Who cares how many bars you hit and how much possession you had. You lost. They put 3 in the net, you put 2. No penalties?! Wahh get over it. This was an excellent game for both teams. Get off your knees for united, take the loss with your head held high.
U mad Man United bro?
Why can't you take the idea that Utd are overrated? They really aren't that good.
LOL, I had to laugh!
What's there to laugh about? This season they have been awful even with big spending transfers. Last week they won even though they were horrendous and had all the ref decisions, I'm glad Spurs won as now hopefully Utd fans will begin to think that maybe they shouldn't be so arrogant.
They are over-rated they do so well through shoddy refereeing and opposition having a mindset thinking they are better than they really are. Its like if you think you are playing the best in the world you are a lot more cautious and dont do certain things thats what teams do against united they give them too much room. But look what happens when teams actually attack united? They get goals. City exposed this last season scoring over 10 against them in total over the season.
Haha loving how everyone is calling buddy butthurt, arrogant or wtv, yet there's this guy still sulking about last game. and gamer you are hilarious... city have hardly been great defensively so far this season and any other team with the injuries we have had there would have crumbled...
City are overrated, winning the title on goal difference in a weak league against the poorest Manchester United side in many years ravaged by a lot of injuries. City are massively overrated. This Man united team is not vintage right now. But I believe it will improve a lot in the next year or so compared to where it was a year ago. City won't improve now, they bought average players that do not improve the first team in the summer and look like they have peaked already. I doubt they will win the title this year, Chelsea or United will and Madrid showed they will get nowhere in Europe against decent teams. No hope of getting very far in the knockout stages. Mourinho's Chelsea were plainly a much better side than this City side, and they didn't cost as much to assemble. City don't even have the best premier league side put together with a blank cheque! Man Utd have won games playing poorly this season and they should have gotten something from the spurs game but it wasnt to be. Man Utd rarely start that brilliantly. This can be a kick up the arse for them now which they have always responded to. The last time they lost 2 from the first 6 games was ten years ago, 2002-03 and 20 years ago, 1992-93. They finished both seasons as champions. Looks like the stars are already lining up for another Man Utd title this season! Title 20 in the 20th year since the first premier league champions?
stop being a child buddymagoo and take your beating. They haven't won at Old Trafford since 1989, so I think its fair, considering how ManU were bringing on the pressure last 20 mins, I think the celebration was deserved.
Wow, things really got out of hands in here.
Ugh, great, now even Tottenham is above us...
I admit this was probably the first time I wanted Man utd to win. Spur's defense was in shambles in the 2nd half. Utd should have done better with their finishing. Scholes was brilliant as usual
great spectacle but that first half performance was terrible from us.. even so i think we atleast deserved a point given how much we dominated the 2nd.. scoles made nearly 200 passes with 91% success rate.. why did he ever retire, and how will we ever replace him? spurs are looking dangerous now after a shaky start and fergie needs to sort out how we play and his selection, starting giggs was ridiculous and even tho he scored nani was poor all game.
ye the last few games giggs hasnt contributed at all, maybe its finally time for him to hang his boots up. i was suprised at giggs starting too, was expecting welbeck to play on the left.
Young player is inconsistent, he is out of form. Old player is inconsistent, time to retire. Excellent attitude, especially they way giggs has served Utd over the years
Completely agree, Welbeck would of offered much more energy and defensive support than Giggs. Don't know why Gigg's was chosen to play left wing, He hasn't been a winger for the last 3-4 seasons, he prefers Kagawa's position behind the striker, so why play both. Gigg's was just wandering around for 90% of the first half. Welbeck or Cleverly would of provided us more Defensive and offensive options with more pace and strength than Gigg's.
Giggs should have hung up his boots when he got caught banging his brother wife. Scum through and through. Glad utd were beat, hahahahahahhahahahhaha. I hope they get beat in many others and well and finish outside of the top 3, would be funny. Spurs,liverpool won't be challenging for anything for quite some time.
I LOVED Bale's goal
Same here. it was awesome.
well done spurs. Bale's goal was a great one. Glad Fergie Time failed to turn things round.
Apologies for my earlier comments. I'm just officially depressed as a person (no, not just because of one result, although it certainly didn't help). I'm almost certain you could count on one hand how many tackles Man Utd even attempted in the first half. That is stunning to me. Man Utd is usually one of the most defensively aggressive teams you could ever play against (no, I'm NOT saying that you're Stoke). Usually a team wouldn't be able to travel spunking distance without getting collapsed upon by pressure, like what happened in the second half. Not only did Bale run almost the whole length of the field unchallenged, there wasn't even an attempt at a last ditch tackle when Bale was about to shoot. Were Utd guilty of complacency in the first half? Ah, well, worst possible week for Arsenal confirmed.
dunno what it is with united in the first half of games this season we are terrible. some credit goes to spurs though they were good but some shocking defending. second half was a lot better and we should have won the game tbf. kagawa looks a lot better coming off the left, got a lot more of the ball than in midfield.
United are terrible because they still rely on giggs and scholes who are too old and players like Carrick who are over-rated. Until they do away with those players and replace them with quality they will never move on and shut up shop early in games. City on the other hand have that quality just a manager who cannot use them right.. United has the manager just not the players lol.
About time United pick up a second loss, they haven't been playing good lately.
They been shocking lately and only won last week thanks to a dive. They need to start looking and players and thinking of the future and is this team gonna be good enough when Ferguson retires. As right now I seriously doubt it.
I suggest we get a new defender in January... Well done to spurs though! United has a terrible first half and Spurs took the advantage! We've conceded in the majority of games so far :/
All i want to know is what spurs is feeding Bale :/.
Its amazing there are so many people that are against United. Any United loss is celebrated all over the net. Its great to see. It just goes to show what a massive club this is that people feel the need to post and blog about a loss. This loss is down to Sir Alex. He picked the wrong team. Giggs should not start EVER AGAIN. He hasn't played well in over 18 months yet i can't fathom why he would start a big game like this. He offered nothing in the first half. We essentially played with 10 men. He doesnt offer anything great in attack or defence. He is just another red shirt on the pitch. Teams like Tottenham with Sandro and Dembele in the midfield need to be checked by players with energy and drive and most of all stamina. Giggs has none of that. Cleverley and Anderson does yet they sat on the bench after putting in an impressive display in midweek against Newcastle. Scholes and Carrick don't work against high energy pressing teams. Thank god we didn't play Barca or Real last night because Scholes (while brilliant with the ball) is a total and complete liability without it. He couldn't tackle a guy in a wheelchair. Carrick has brainfarts when an opposition player so much as breathes in his general direction. He gives away possession and he can't turn his man when he is being pressed. High pressing teams often thrive against us with Scholes and Carrick in midfield. The writing was on the wall when United's team sheet was announced. I feared the worst when i saw Scholes, Carrick and Giggs in midfield.
30 comments later. now that everyone is calm down.
lets look at the facts.
this is for the city, liverpool, tottenham, chelsea supporters.
liverpool, city, and tottenham fans will love he fact united got beat. did united deserve to lose, based on the first half yes. were they better in the second, yes. did they deserve to win, no. if any team playes as pathetic as united did and concedes 2 goals, they shouldnt win a match.
but at the end of the day, only chelsea fans and everton fans should be running their mouths. united is third on the log. if united are playing bad as city and liverpool fans make it out to be, how crap must your teams be playing to be lower than united? and city wins with an own goal against arsenal and celebrates like it was goal of the season.
united has a lot of work to be done. but an era is coming to an end. Ferguson needs to get the team right before leaving (whenever that is) otherwise united will go through manager after manager like chelsea did before coming right again, or end up as has been great team like liverpool. (not seeing the premiership in forever). but there is hope. if united play every game like they played the last 20mins against tottenham, they can get results.
What a trippy match, never expected United losing.
