Crikey. That ‘rubbish’ Brentford side that we lost to have just taken the lead against Liverpool.

Liverpool got a pretty quick equaliser though.

Latest in the line of jaw dropping decisions, in the Man U v villa game Mginn knocks it past Maguire on the halfway line and has 50 yards of space he’s about to run in to to potentially have a 1 v 1 vs de Gea, maguire clearly puts out his arms to drag Mginn down. Some refs might even see it as a red card for denying a clear goal scoring opportunity- I think Koscielny and Xhaka have both had refs for half way line fouls - it’s a certain yellow. Maguire doesn’t even get pinged for the foul. It honestly defies belief

Brentford good value for their 3-3 though. Not an easy fixture (especially with the patched up side that we turned out).

Brentford are the new Leeds. Great entertainment, no respect for reputation and a home stadium that’s absolutely rocking.

I do think these late kick off games, away from home, when you’re the only game on tv is the worst time to play these sorts of teams

Well he said he didn't watch the earlier games before the Brentford-Liverpool one. :blob9:

I watched the latter part of the Chelsea-City game. That Bernardo is a midfield wizard. That's our missing piece.

Compimenmts of the Eastern Cyprus Forum:

"Petrol tanker drivers have an ADR qualification as well as a HGV licence. They need this for them to drive petrol tanker lorries.
There is a shortage of HGV drivers. That's a true fact.
However HGV drivers cannot drive a petrol Tanker lorry without having an ADR qualification.
The UK had ADR drivers last week. NOTHING repeat NOTHING changed much in a week. Maybe some holiday or some sickness but not, I doubt a dramatic change.
The ADR drivers that were driving last week are still driving this week delivering fuel. So nothing has changed.
The petrol panic we are now experiencing is all down too media hype.
It's not because of brexit because all the EU drivers went back to Europe. Which is some of the reasons being banded about.
These EU HGV driver's, left months ago, and yet the country was still getting fuel without problems up until today.
So what's changed? Nothing !!
Apart from the disgraceful media hype and scaremongering to make news. Too sensationalise the fact that a couple of petrol stations were getting a late delivery so they closed.
The Result of the media scaremongering!!
Massive panic and chaos by everyone. Which is now causing a shortage of fuel until the ADR drivers, that we already had delivering fuel a few days ago, can deliver again.
The media should be fined and penalised, severely for publicising false news and creating the crazy situation that has been going on all today. Disgusting. They should hold their heads in shame.
And to top it the government have 1000’s of trained military personnel who are available if there was a real fuel crisis. Bloody Media!! Bloody sheep, bloody selfish mentality."

Check what the head of the Road Haulage Association says, then get back to us.

https://www.channel4.com/news/shortage-of-uk-lorry-drivers-critical-says-road-haulage-association

You’re quite mad. The reason it’s happening is the effects have been gradual. It’s only going to get worse.

Still thank god my banana’s can now be straight.

Seen a bit of fuss being made about Marcus Alonso now not taking the knee. Players who now don’t take the knee generally do so because they say it’s lost it’s impact. Alonso instead stands and points to the anti racism badge on his sleeve. Surely the very fact Alonso is doing something different is drawing attention (more attention) in the media and therefore keeping the anti-racism as a big focus. In a way, by doing something different it is having a greater impact - in terms of exposure and keeping it relevant - that just taking the knee with everyone else.

He never spoke to his black team mates about his stance apparently which I find quite odd.

What a div :14laughter:

The governments solution is to offer temporary visas to HGV drivers from Europe. If the solution they are pursuing is to undo parts of Brexit then how can the problem not be Brexit! :laughing7:

There simply isn’t enough haulage capacity in the country anymore because of Brexit. The petrol stuff will get sorted but there will be other issues about lack of availability of goods to follow.

One just knew after the first double exclamation mark that we would soon be hearing about sheep and how awful the media is.

Even if it is well meant, it is very egotistical and precious, and misses the point about solidarity.

Yes that one really does take some explaining.

I think there is an exemption that reads: at Old Trafford, since the days of Ferguson the usual rules do not apply to Manchester United players. Referees are not to do anything to upset the club.

I don’t think they showed it on motd at all. They lost which was the bigger story. I guess them also getting the benefit of dodgy decisions doesn’t scan with that.

No. But I would certainly understand if Arteta played Xhaka and Partey together.

Then there's Wilfried Zaha , who's been mentioned on here before as he won't take the knee.

I think Xhaka will come straight back in. I don’t necessarily agree with it but I’m sure Arteta will start him

Xhaka starts. Pépé benched. Looks like it will be Saka on the right and smith Rowe on the left, Ødegaard central

Xhaka fits quite well into that formation. Not at bad selection actually.

I hope he's got it right with Xhaka.

My concern is that he slows us down and we want more dynamism, not less.

Great start - well deserved.

We're playing through the lines. Spurs are just going long ball.

We look up for this

So far, up to and including the goal we are playing like:
we are in a NLD
we are possibly seeing the football that Arteta has been trying to imprint on the squad
