Knowing our like they will strike back to hurt us - as they normally do.

Come on you Lions,----Villa can do this,

reckon its not right that VAR is only used at Premier home games---should be all or nothing---

we was done again---with VAR  just looking for a morsel to disallow Ings,s goal---not offside oh blimey what else can we look at? oh when Cavani ran into Ramsay,,that,ll do nicely  the ruddy process took at least 4 minutes!!  and what about Konsa getting downed with blood oozing down his face in their area---not a second glance-----pathetic---screwed yet again at Old Trafford!!!!

We were def better, and more attractive side. Some of the touch and go’s were great to watch, the midfield was a class above Utd’s, and they had no clue how to manage Watkins and Buendia. On the downside wtf is going on with Targett ? He has a lovely left foot, but seems determined not to use it - was continually given ball in a good position but then stopped and just shuffled a pass backwards - often then putting the receiver under pressure. His game has just fallen apart compared to how he played last year, and is now back to the liability he was in the first season back in Prem. We also badly ran out of puff in the last 10 mins and did not  have the strength on the bench to bring back the energy and drive, so just when it looked like the last 10 mins would be like the Alamo it became more of a stalemate (more Somme than Alamo).

Dermot Gallagher says on Sky Sports that the goal was disallowed because,Ramsey "impacted" Cavani, this occoured right next to Oliver, so the poor lad missed it first time around despite being about 3 foot away!!! a visit to Specsavers methinks!    ,2 offsides and 1 handball could not be proven, so that was VAR,S last desperate shot to refuse the goal-----farcical,!!!!  i ask  would so much trouble have been taken if it had been at the other end?

Frustrating but as Gerrard stated - we are a nearly team at the moment. We MUST take our chances.

 

Yes the VAR was extremely frustrating but we should have put the game to bed without that. I must say SG is so refreshing imo.

  • avstu changed the title to FAC: Manchester Utd 1-0 Aston Villa

It was good to see us battle for that last night. The stats showed we had more possession than them. Just a shame we didn’t take our chances. Was gutted for Watkins when he hit the bar as that was some real quality.
