Lampard's got his revenge. We beat him 4-0 first game of the season and they've thumped us today

We've beaten em 3 times this season. One cup win against a changed United team isn't revenge.

Exactly. I'm not fucked about losing. I'm arsed because Chelsea have had to do very little to win, and it's only proven how fucking threadbare our side is. Which may be a good thing tbf

Weve lost. I dont care about that anywhere near as much as I care about the manner of loss

But i worry about the mentality of the side and even more about the lack of depth we have. Forget a title challenge next year, we're 4-5 players short of even going close.

Too many arent good enough. A few who are young and might improve. A few who wont.

If we have anything about us, Ole will tear a strip off us now and needs to sort Gea.

We need a big and quick response in the next 2 games. If we do, fair fucks. But wake the fuck up!!!

Aye, the FA Cup final would have been just another game, when the priorty atm is securing top 4 and/or going all the way in the Europa.

What disappointed me was that we were no better than we would have been had we played the like of Perriera, Lingard, Rojo etc. It seems like they have slipped back into the recent 'old' United way again, directionless passing and movement and devoid of anything other than sideways and backwards. Hopefully it's just tiredness but it's worrying to think that we don't actually have any decent players apart from the starting 11, for nearly all the positions bar goalie.

We had absolutely no threat down the right hand side yesterday. AWB offers no attacking threat (hence why the opposition give him so much space) and is defensively sloppy as well now. James is just a younger version of Lingard, lots of running around but shit touch, shit passing and fuck all assists. He doesn't have anything to offer United from what I can see, he's not even worth putting on the bench ffs. Hopefully the Board will see just how desparately we need a Sancho.

Fred was diabolical yesterday, he is late reading the game and he more often than not gives the ball away. Both him and McT seem to have come back from the break worse than going into it.

And don't get me started on that defence. I think some money needs to be spent sorting it out otherwise it we will end up as the 90's Newcastle i.e. we wills score goals but ship just as many.

Fucking pathetic showing really.
We cannot ring the changes with a different formation, looked shit when we tried to revert to the hobbit's standard formation and shafted yet again by the hobbit's reluctance to drop DDG. That the hobbit said in the post match interview that DDG would play the last two games just proves for me that he hasn't got what it takes to be an even half-decent manager.

His comments on De Gea make sense of sorts - presumably a 'show of faith' to help his confidence, which looks shot. The summer will be more telling - We may not be able to find a taker who'll meet what we pay him, but we do have a genuine option to keep Henderson and let him have a go for the shirt. Wouldn't cost us anything to do so. Could probably move Romero on easily enough too.
