    Looking at the reports of this game, Manchester United seem set to win the title of oddest-looking squad if nothing else.

    Head too small:



    Head too big:



    Everything too small:



    Old Man Rooney:



    Weird bra:



    Posh school trip:



    Stupid shirt name:



    Quagmire:



    Siamese twin:






    Mind you, Redknapp wins oddest-looking manager having had his feet amputated (and for looking like Harry Redknapp):

    Outrageous, banning the chips! What was he thinking?!

    My God, today 'footballers' are such primadonnas and princesses. I wonder what all those English 'stars' would do under Pearce, Guardiola or any other manager who wouldn't want to put up with their shit.

    I see the media have again changed tack at the speed of light, suddenly van Gaal is the messiah once more and United are world-beaters. It will make their dismantling by the top-5 sides all the more entertaining.

    I dunno, United looked awfully, awfully good Sunday. QPR beyond dire, but that was a performance. Blind gives United something they have not had in years. The other new guys all looked excellent. They will finish third, at the very least.

    Between QPR and Newcastle, one could not find two more under-motivated sides.

    No shape to United's midfield despite the millions spent on it.

    LVG won't last the season.

    So that's what £150m buys you?

    Midfield diamond of Blind, Herrera, Di Maria and Rooney. Absolutely no width, only Di Maria with a change of pace.

    You expect them to beat teams like Leicester, so to see them struggling suggests they won't be able to cope with Chelsea or City's dynamism.

    RVP needs to be dropped, he's past it. Herrera and Blind can hold, Di Maria wide left, Rooney/Mata in behind and Mata/Januzaj wide right. Would give them so much more control over games.

    It's more the defence being weak and unprotected by a weak midfield that has too many attack minded players who don't want to defend that is their problem.

    To be fair, if Clattenburg hadn't made a humongous error, then compounded it by making another one which leads to them losing a defender, they might have won it, you never know.

    I knew some people were getting carried away by them rolling over a poor QPR team last week.
    There's no point overloading your squad with highly rated forwards if you don't have a defence.
    Moyes would have been slaughtered if he'd been in charge today.

    How on earth he can give a penilty 2 seconds after the most blatant foul I'll never know.

    Since fergp went they haven't had a controlled and thoughtful transfer window. Everyone has had panic but written all over it

    Ahh normal service is resumed. Poor lambs, it'll be a long drive back to Maidstone tonight.

    That QPR win last week was exactly the same as when Moyes smashed Leverkusen 5-0 in Europe. Complete overreaction from the fans and media to paint over the cracks. If enough of a gap opens up to fourth place in the next few months their implosion can hopefully be brought about when the sponsors and glory fans begin to jump ship. I do wish that they'd managed to get the Europa League last year though - those extra games would kill them this year.

    The best thing of it all though is that they've yet to play a top PL side. Of their five games so far, they've played all three promoted sides, a team that only just managed to survive in Sunderland, and good-but-nothing-special Swansea. Looking forward to their games against City, Chelsea and Arsenal in October...

    I can see Everton getting 4th (even 3rd) at the moment. City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Everton are a different class from the rest. A lot can happen though. As it stands I wouldn't be upset to see the table to end up

    1- Chelsea
    2- City
    3- Everton
    4- Arsenal

    ...and we will give you a wave at the end of the season as we go up and you go down.

    Do Port Vale have a forum? I'm going to sign up and experiment with a fictitious rivalry.

    The overreaction from the media following the QPR result was far too much. It was QPR for fucks sake!

    Blind is a full on defensive midfielder and is herrera really that attacking?
    Regardless if what you say is true its their own fault for spending so much on transfers and wages and not fixing the problems that they had for more than just this year.

    The penalty should have been a freekick before hand but the challenge on blackett wasnt much.
