    It is a refereeing howler in its own right. But that is all totally irrelevant when the referee gives 12 decisions for the same or less contact in the rest of the half and then randomly doesn’t give that one. When it then goes to VAR the ONLY question can be “is a foul committed, yes or no?” And the answer to that can only be “yes”

    We gave them too much respect. Other than them putting in more effort than usual, which is expected, the game was for the taking. We missed Salah and Shaq.

    This was exactly the type of game for them to run behind Utd's 2 banks of fours, during the latter stages of the game.

    Oh well....1-1 is a decent result and we are still top of the table.

    Long way to go in the season. Moving on.

    If it was in the penalty area I can’t see anything but a foul.

    Fair result. We were awful first half, fair first part of second half and good in last 20.

    Won 8 drawn 1

    Keita, Ox and Lallana did more in their sub appearance than Hendo did the entire match.

    The team that won the European Cup and had 97 points last season reduced to long balls for most of the game. We looked much better once Keita and Ox came on. The question is why not Keita and Ox much earlier? I love Gini and Henderson but sometimes your can tell really in in the game that they aren't going to contribute creatively.

    I'm glad this is over. The media hype was crazy.

    Fucking hell, anyone would think Keita and Chamberlain came on and won us a point. Lallana did that.

    Keita was OK, but I fail to understand the praise. He made a few passes, but what else did he do? He is still so hesitant, he makes a move to go forward but then checks and looks for a short ball. Never looks like he's going to cause real damage. Or shoot even.

    As for Chamberlain, he's just fucking brainless, and his touch is awful. He had one decent shot and that was about it

    What do you guys think about the Fred shoulder, he used his shoulder as a tool so technically it is handball, or am I wrong...

    maybe they looked better in the context of one of our worst displays for ages, because almost everyone else was fucking shit, apart from Wijnaldum who was only fucking shit for half the game.

    Matip, Henderson, Firmino, Origi were all fucking dreadful, and TAA couldn't hit a bull's arse with a laser-guided shovel

    Gotta take a draw at Old Trafford to be honest, especially after being shit for large parts.

    We missed Salah running in behind massively but also they set up to defend and grind out a result at home so it's not that surprising.

    We need more options on the bench though for sure

    Was listening to Peter Crouch podcast yesterday and he was going on about the live of first touch that Gerrard demanded of him, which made him raise his game. Saw Zlatan saying he used to bet Lukaku on his first touch. If Origi kills that ball into him, we don't concede that goal.

    Can see why the foul wasn't given, but we desperately need another attacker who can come in for Mane or Salah, not as an impact player after 70 mins.

    Firmino was anonymous and Henderson awful. Mistake we made was letting them dictate the tempo early on and we just regressed.

    On the plus side I got to watch James bounce off a brick wall.

    Otherwise it's all been said, because we know all we need to know about this team for good and bad, and some of that just can't change.

    Keita didn't do wonders in his 10-15 mins. But he helped the whole team control the ball better with him and Lallana on. We struggled with that for long periods.

    But you wouldn't notice whether I really did because you're already gone!

    Quotes from Redcafe belong in the "Other forums meltdown" thread.
