Man U – Villa; Could we possibly beat them?

Well, that was a comprehensive win over Newcastle, wasn’t it?
And regardless of what some of their deluded and obsessive web-site fans think, my opinion is that if we’re going to be relegated, they’re going to be below us.
I simply thought they were awful because of the way they’re being played by Steve Bruce.

I never did get round to going on a certain site and handing back some of the abuse the Newcastle fans handed out to our club and it’s probably just as well really, as it’s not my style. I prefer our results to do the talking and we got that by some distance.

Moving on, I know it’s Man U away and our record against them is frankly criminal, but they’re not the force they were, are they?
Hence I think they’re now very beatable.
It seems Dean Smith agrees and he’s talked about how we’ve been competitive against the likes of Liverpool, even though we haven’t got the results.
It’s also interesting to see that Newcastle managed a draw against Man City today, which sort of proves that this year’s Premier league is very even, or even poor.

So anyone can beat anyone it seems and when I mentioned to a (Derby) workmate that we face Man U away, he said “I reckon you might actually do them” before I did.
Which just goes to show. Maybe we’re not as bad as we think we are at times.
That said, it’s not been often that I’ve thought we’re bad. It’s just getting the results, isn’t it?

Anyway, squad news and on our part, I think we’re ok the usual apart.

Man Utd have Pogba and McTominay as possibles.
Which is interesting in itself.
Not long back, I’d have been able to rattle off Man U’s first team, no problem.
Nowadays, I haven’t even heard of McTominay.
That’s how far they’ve fallen and they really aren’t a force anymore.

They’re still a big club with massive support though.
Yet, they’re only three points in front of us.

I don’t think Dean Smith will bottle it for this one and will want to take it to Man U as best we can.

I’m going for a draw. 2-2.

But, as much as history and them being at home says we’ll probably lose, so it really wouldn’t surprise me if we win.

    Mings’ place in the starting 11 should be under threat. Another error results in a goal. Not good enough at the moment.

    How are we not winning that half?
    Totally bossed it, Man are not confident, losing the ball and challenges.
    We’re much the better team, but I still fear for our luck.
    Trez was offside for his goal, but it was well before he actually netted.
    Oh well.
    And yes, Mings fault for their goal, messing about again and not clearing it first time. It really annoys me about him and while I do rate him, he can be a bloody liabilty at times.

    Onwards and upwards. If that half is duplicated, we’ll win this.

    If Mings is struggling, then now is the time for quality management as his attitude, commitment and ability are without question. All players go through bad periods, it’s just how the Manager deals with it without destroying the player. He may just need a smidge of time out. He hardly looks like the type of player who takes his place for granted.
    Now, Villa, sort this dirty, shit ManU side out!!!!
