    Would like to reiterate that if we're still 2 points behind Leicester a win over Arsenal will put us top and put all the pressure on them. They seem to play before us a lot lately, so let's see how roles are reversed.

    Obviously get through Wednesday first!

    It was like Krul from a few seasons ago. Was it 12 saves and I don't think we won either.

    But we didn't struggle today to break Swansea's defence down, we struggled to beat a possessed Fabianski and we got a bit unlucky with two Eriksen free kicks going narrowly wide.

    Totally agree, Fergie has often said that at their very best, during their most successful seasons there was possibly three players in each game that were being carried or off form, BUT still possessed the right attitude and desire.

    Today Lamela and Kane were not at their very best, Lamela i would guess from the effort he put in on Thursday and Kane because of his injury, but they both still ran their nuts off and played for their team.

    So in all honesty how would you have felt if it had ended up 2-2. When Dele gave away that free kick. I thought bollocks here we go. Maybe furious was the wrong word to use but not being clinical will cost us. I don't mind losing if we're outplayed and I don't mind drawing if teams match us, but I don't want to drop points when we batter teams blow our chances and they nick a lucky goal to win or draw

    I have had the good fortune to be invited to watch a couple of games from an east stand box. I went today, and previously the home win against palace. The constant pressure we apply is reminiscent of the way man utd would play in their hay day. A real belief has come to this side. We look the real deal, a solid team. COYS.

    You realise that you're complaining about something that didn't happen right? :confused:

    Okay I will bite. Since you are so determined to deal with "ifs", what if a quarter of our 34 shots had scored? Get my drift?

    FFS. We are the joint top scorers in the PL. We have conceded the least in the PL. We are second and hunting down the leaders. Today we scored 2 - the opposition scored 1- this means a win and three points. The pressure was on after falling behind and we did the job. Also played pretty damn well enough that their coach said we were the best they'd played this season.
    Now cheer up.

    Average player positions. Note 2 of our players in our own half & only 2 of theirs in our half

    I'm pretty sure @millsey, @Francis Gibb and a few other supposed malcontents are actually fictitious characters rotated by @Archibald&Crooks to keep match thread page count going :sneaky:

    If we'd had lost today we'd be up to 120 pages by now easy :LOL:

    But they didn't, that is the point.

    You're getting all unnecessary over a totally hypothetical scenario.

    Think about it chief, "if they had scored"... Seriously, if? If you want to apply hypothetical situations against us, you seriously need to balance them with those for us.

    "If Fabianski had had a standard game we'd have put up a cricket score."

    "If Eriksen hit his free kicks a little sweeter he'd have had a brace."

    If you are going to get anguished about something, FFS find something real rather than imagined.

    What's with the mass opposition to any criticism on this forum? You literally can't say one negative thing without being bombarded by neg ratings and replies shooting you down. The world's best players get to the level they are through continued perseverance at improving all aspects of the game and the top managers demand perfection. Just because we're doing lots of things very well at the moment doesn't mean there shouldn't be discussion why X, Y or Z can't be done better.

    didnt get to watch the game live as was working so managed to watch it after without so much emotion knowing we eventually won, first half i felt we were ok but apart from the save at the end didn't do too much, most fab's saves were straight forwards, 2nd half felt we really took it up a gear,were more threatening from set plays for a change, liked how much toby and dier interchanged when bringing the ball out from the back and a special mention to Walker who i felt had probably his best game of the season,some excellent crosses and didnt always come inside like he has done too much recently.
