:D

We were absolutely awful mate, proper bad. Southampton played some great football and their movement really caused us some problems. You could tell they'd had 12 days (or whatever it was) off as they looked well drilled, but I said to my mate that I think they'll tire in the second half because of it and around the 70th minutes you could see United grow into the game

Saints had a goal ruled out for offside too (was just on :? ) although they should have had a player sent off (Stephens I think) and that Romelu should have had a second yellow on five occasions

Still, a cup win is a cup win 8)

Ibra is a goal machine and his hold up play at times is fantastic.

Not sure?

Think with this win there's no doubt that United are the most successful side in English football? (Liverpool didn't like to count charity shields and world club championships)

Have read Liverpool had to change their tag line on their official social media profiles.... :D

And the man with yet another record :-

Jose Mourinho is the first manager in Manchester United's history to win a major trophy in his first season - and with a crap defence.

Man United's 50 man squad is being stretched a bit :-

Quote:
TEAM NEWS

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has been ruled out of the FA Cup quarter-final at Chelsea, leaving his side without a recognised striker.

Rooney collided with Phil Jones in training and misses out with a leg injury, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic begins a three-game ban for elbowing Bournemouth's Tyrone Mings.

Forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford [illness] are also missing.


10 defenders, 1 up front for the long ball and Jose will be looking to grab a win in the last 10 minutes then.

Manchester United came to play football for the first 20 minutes and at the end of that time they were chasing shadows as Hazard had started dissecting their defence.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 fouls later and the attacks on Hazard reached the point where the Referee spoke to one player at length.

The player moved away and another one took his place immediately - literally immediately.

However, the fool who clattered Alonso inside seconds of the restart had forgotten that he'd already been booked.

Exit Herrera at 35 minutes.

The referee was then surrounded by a cess pit of United players and, almost nose to nose, the referee was harangued for at least 30 seconds.

Mourinho was finally disowned by his shocked former fans last night and the chants of "Judas, Judas" were ugly indeed.

They weren't as ugly as the hack and slash assaults going on throughout the period of Hazard's bruising but the chanting was still ugly, even if thoroughly deserved.

United played football in the first 20 minutes or so and then in the last 10 minutes, as was to be expected.

Image

United amassed 28% possession and had one clear shot at goal when their lone striker shot straight at the Chelsea goalkeeper after bamboozling the last defender.

Oh, and Mourinho and Conte had a spat as well. It wasn't a great game to watch as shooting-gallery football rarely is. United had more bookings than chances at goal and that was after the referee seemed to have lost his cards in the second half. One assault - which looked like stamping to the pundits - may well see another United player having an enforced break - bye Mr Rojo, that sneaky bit of thuggery on Hazard wasn't missed by the cameras.

That was the final disgrace for Mourinho; he had coached his side to hack and slash after failing to get an early goal and the bruised and battered Chelsea players also had a few lunges at United soldiers.

Diego was hauled off late on after being booked and the crass comments of the ex-Arsenal pundit were priceless.

So the expected win for Chelsea - it was 1 - plonk at the end, but could/should have been 4 or 5 in truth. Congratulations to the United goalkeeper who had a tremendous game, saving shot after shot. The only one that beat him was from Kante who was a bit good when compared to the invisible man. (See stats above)

Chelsea are now unbeaten in 12 games against United in all competitions (W7 D5) since a 3-2 home defeat in October 2012.

UPDATE

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39272896

Manchester United charged with failing to control players against Chelsea

Referee Michael Oliver was surrounded by several United players after sending off midfielder Ander Herrera 10 minutes before half-time.

An FA statement said United have until 18:00 GMT on Friday to respond.

Spanish midfielder Herrera was sent off after a second foul on Chelsea forward Eden Hazard.

No further action will be taken against United's Marcos Rojo for an incident late in the game.

Rojo appeared to stamp on Hazard but Oliver has told the FA he saw it and dealt with the incident as he saw fit at the time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

United have doughnutted referees for 20 years. A smack on the wrist would seem appropriate for that. £50 K max.

Kicking lumps out of Chelsea players might be considered more serious.

Manchester United have been fined the standard £20,000 by the Football Association for failing to control their players in last Monday's FA Cup quarter-final defeat at Chelsea.

United admitted a misconduct charge after referee Michael Oliver was surrounded by several players following the dismissal of midfielder Ander Herrera.

Was never a second yellow. Is every foul a yellow card these days?

Michael Oliver is an awful referee, one of the worst and hopefully he follows clattenberg to the Far East. This was obviously because they couldn't give Rojo a retrospective ban for his alleged stamp. Perhaps Chelsea should be fined for not controlling Diego Costa for the umpteenth time, his play acting is embarrassing to say the least

Still was for the best that we got eliminated as it's the least of our priorities and the fixture pile up and lack of help from the fa over fixtures is killing us at the moment

Saying all that Chelsea aren't any great shakes tbh, before the red they were second best and struggled to score a second against a side who were down to ten men (for over an hour) and were out on there feet after playing in Russia in awful conditions a few days before (and without key players and any fully fit strikers)

Also not sure what this has to do with United winning the league cup...
