Supposedly there is going to be a fan protest.
He'll get some stick. Especially if we lose.

If we win, i reckon a lot of fans will change their tune. Except those hardcore fans who take supporting a team way too seriously. :laugh:

I wouldn't call it domination, but spurs did press hard in the second half. It just goes to show how much our defence has improved since the first part of the season when we were leaking goals all over the place. Spurs were lucky to get off the hook though with the Rooney penalty shout. They should have been dead and buried had that penalty been given. I guess the officials have their good and bad days. The weather certainly wasn't on their side.

Dominated, partially. Screwed out of a PK, yes. Given the circumstances, I think Tottenham came out pretty lucky with that result.

Haha! Though, he should be embarrassed for giving up 1 or 2 other easy opportunities.

I hope Rafa gets sacked just for continuing to start Torres. Ba has already proven to be in better form, he should start every match - we need the scoring. I've always liked Torres, he works hard, but now we have someone better.

Couldn't stomach a full season of Benitez.

It was reported in the press that RDM was sacked because of not starting Torres, something which RA demanded. I don't understand why some clubs have to interfere and take such matters out the managers hands. Why have managers in the first place?

One example is the oligarch at Chelsea and another that comes to mind is the chicken merchant aka 'global advisor' @ Blackpool FC who was ruffled (excuse the pun) for picking their starting team not long ago.

If that was any Man utd player getting almost chopped down in the box they would've gone down, if Dempsey hadnt have let you off it would've been a very different game! Penalty and a sending off.. Either way, happy with 4 points against united this season!

From what I heard the new manager just told then to continue with what they know. Sounds like we have the best chances and some of our players did raise their game a little. Hopefully we can continue our improvements and get a couple new faces in before the end of the window especially with some of the people we have been linked with. I don't watch the games, I seem to be bad luck and only see/hear goals going against us so I watch the replays and updates (plus last thing I need is premature aging!).

As for the fans. We knew we needed to back the team and the new manager, NC's actions are not their fault. Show Adkins that we respect and appreciate his actions and that he will always be remembered for what he has done for us but then move forward and focus on the rest of the season.

Yeah I didn't see the match, but my thoughts pretty much mimic StrikedOut. Not a bad start to the Pochettino era, bring on Man U I guess!

Just saw that there's some discussion going on about the Man Utd vs Tottenham game and if you think that Tottenham were "lucky" to come out with a point you clearly didn't watch the game or you're one of the deluded Manchester United fans. Man Utd has ONE opportunity in the first half which they took (don't give me that 'we're a one chance one goal side GGMU rubbish) and in the second half they were absolutely outplayed.

It was domination from Spurs, the shots and shots on goal shows that. Each time Manchester United had the ball, they'd try and hold it for long periods because Spurs isn't exactly a side that presses on you when the opposition has the ball but Spurs were most definitely a more threatening side going up top and they most definitely deserved the point, if not 3!
