    Thank you sir.

    Looking forward to the massive overreactions after we lose. Will be nice to see Sturridge and Benteke play together, though.

    Looking forward to the game. Hoping for Klopp to keep his 100% record against City intact.

    Rooney and Martial out with minor knocks and Wilson not in 90 minute form yet. Depay pretty much the only option up front against Watford then... :help:

    Edit: seems Marcus Rashford & Sean Goss will be in the squad. If that will be the case, United will have used more youth team/academy players this season than in many years.

    You'll still get 3. It's Watford.

    I don't think Bournemouth will win another game again this season. I wonder if I'm the only one captaining any player that faces them in the fantasy leagues.

    Last time out, Newcastle United introduced a new concept into football- the traumatising victory. All and sundry babbled about 'character', when in fact NUFC demonstrated none at all. Taking a fortuitous lead prompted them to play even worse than they had beforehand- and that was dire enough. Rob Elliot was praised to the skies, for his performance, but Bournemourth's execution in and around the penalty area was so inept, one suspects they were being distracted by encountering an opposition keeper with man-breasts. Three points were achieved in such a manner as to create a doubt that Newcastle's rabble will never win another game of football ever. Remember, NUFC were not merely torn to shreds by Bournemouth, but an injury-hobbled Bournemouth. Had Gradel and Wilson been fit, one shudders to think what would have happened.

    Claudio Ranieri is an experienced coach, so presumably he's spent the build up to this game showing slo-mo footage of Elliot's wobbly boobs, in order to get his players' laughter out of the way before the serious business starts. So it would be nice if Tiote and Anita could raise their game to the level of, say, Northern Premier League reserves.

    If you stop Mahrez, you likely stop Leicester. So the smart money is on Newcastle giving him the freedom of NE1, and then saying afterwards that they can't understand what went wrong.

    Mind you, last year Leicester came north and played as if they were stepping into the den of the lions, polar bears and Tasmanian devils all at once. And maybe they'll be confused by the playing of the Marseillaise- an example of EPL gesture politics at its most crass, in my book.

    Herrera pulls a hammy? Rojo comes on and United switch to 3 CBs, Blind moves to a wingback.

    United are giving the ball away way too much.

    Memphis needed that goal for his confidence, looks real good in this game.

    Too bad Herrera picked up a knock. The injuries are piling up now.

    Watford's manager looks like Doran Martell.

    Kenedy starts at LB. It's official, Mourinho's lost it.

    Figures. Lingard had a chance to seal it, lob too low, then Rojo makes a sstupid tackle, penalty and we're level. :shakehead

    Schweini!!!

    Might go down as an Own Goal, ironically via Deeney.

    Well deserved win for United. Can't believe the commentators felt like Watford deserved something when the only positive thing they did was win that fluke PK from Rojo.
