If Ole picks Lukaku as his main CF after that performance then don't give him the job because I'm done with Jose-ball and fucking Everton strikers

Going to feel like a win for the boys. Ah well, disappointing but we move on and hopefully lessons are learnt!

It’s a shit result but when you’re 2-0 down with 3 mins to go..... that fight back builds character and in a daft way could do more to strengthen team spirit than edging a win.

But it highlights once again that Lukaku has no place up front for United.
this whole game sort of smacks of "Burnley ought to be our easiest game for a while so let's try him out in a low risk game". Utterly fatal.

9 unbeaten is incredible tbf

But if we'd have started with that pacey line up playing balls in behind then we'd have won that

Lukaku is not much used against a packed defence, but his pace is useful on the counter. We should let him move on and be the main man for a smaller club.

If he gets his fitness and sharpness back, Sanchez could be in the mix with Lingard, Rashford, and Martial as our forward line, but we need someone new with some x factor, preferably a leftie.

Shame to drop points, but useful lessons have been learnt about the limits of our squad -- it's clear how we should be playing, now it's a case of seeing who we have that can play that way.

Yep. Rom slows the play down and means it's all played in front of the opposition. And it means 82 crosses which munters like Burnley will header out all day long. The way to beat their lumps is with pace in behind, like we have done to the last 8 teams.

Not only that but it means you lose Rashford as well because he's absolutely shite on the wing

We looked more dangerous when Lukaku went off. We started playing OIe-ball again. The pen came from Lingard getting the right side of the defender, so he had to pull him back.

Its only fair we give Ole the chance to make mistakes and learn. He made a big one last night in his selection up front but the players also started slow and took the game for granted.

We might not have taken the 3 points but I'm sure lessons were learnt.

This season was a right off to me so I'm happy just to watch the games and enjoy the football again.

tbf, Burnley were rock solid and Heaton pulled off at least 4 very good saves. We should have won but at least we showed the character to recover from being 0-2 down. We would not have seen that under the previous three managers (bar the Juve and Man City games).

Perriera showed that he isn't United class and should be included in the Fellaini sale.
