Fucking hell, you couldn't make it up. Those that have it in for Mourinho will always find a way to suit their agenda. 4-1 away win in the champions league, albeit against opposition that had a bit of a mare and there's a suggestion it was thrown.

Fuck me. How about a bit of credit?

Quality performance that. We still have more to do, we still need 2-3 quality signings to be at the top in Europe, but we're clearly better and much more effective than last season.

Jose knows what he's doing. He can be a miserable cunt sometimes, but he knows his shit.

Aye, we should be giving the team credit for playing CSKA off the park rather than suggesting we only won because they were throwing it.

It was a good performance but it was against a poor side. It won't be this easy when we start playing the likes of PSG/Bayern/Atletico et al.

Lindelof looked pretty good last night, eager to come out with the ball and he played some good passes. Obviously suited to the continental game rather than the EPL chaos. Mkhitaryan also looked good, another who isn't suited to the EPL but thrives in Euro comps.

Lukaku, despite scoring goals, looks out of place in the side. His touch let him down on far too many occasions last night and he doesn't always link up play well. But he is putting the ball in the back of the net, and that's what matters at the end of the 90 minutes.

That was a really good CL away performance. Four goals.

I thought Lukaku had a good game, he set up a couple of chances and scored two.

Watch the goals back today, the defending looks even more ridiculous

It's the worst I've ever seen in 20 years of watching football - worse than anything seen in the Prem, division one, the northern prem games I go to sometimes

Fuck off Sid.

This forum has become a joke.

Scoring more goals than ever before, managers tactics spot on ...and all you talk about it match fixing etc

Go and support City or someone

Or what the fuck happened to Basel, getting so good?

They have previous tbf, beating us and Chelsea in the past
They are shit now. It's not the same team it used to be.

Lots of young unproven players.

I think it's you who needs to leave, if you can't handle people posting things that aren't in total deference toward Mourinho

Match fixing-doubt it. Lukaku's lack of control and all the other so called negatives from this game pale into insignificance when one looks at Uniteds abysmal kit. Looks like someones put it in the wrong wash cycle with something dark.Ghastly.

scoring more goals ,yes , against rubbish
spot on according to you !
if we get away with less than a 4 goal drubbing against liverpool, i will be shocked.
weve had a cushy start to the season and been lucky against real shite,shite who should not be in the same league. i did post with teams like celtic, cska etc you can only beat whats infront of you, but i wont rant about it, it wasnt a competition.

lets see his tactics at liverpool , 6 maybe 7 defenders (5 at the back and 2 dm`s),thats his only tactic,and its older than me.
