Well they are missing a few guys, Pastore and Veratti are hurt, Aurier is suspended, Lavezzi is also hurt. We haven't taken an L since Mou got the boot. The bus will be parked. Gives us a very slight chance at doing something.
post #23312 of 50776
Didn't Lavezzi go to China? Without Aurier they still got Van Der Wiel. Looked like he was on his way out prior to the season but he's more secure than ever.

That midfield still got Matuidi and Motta, would love to see David Luiz as a CDM. If not the youngin Rabiot might get a chance on the big stage otherwise Di Maria back midfield and Cavani gonna have to play a false LW.

Oh wait......

Aight, I'll take the bait...

United didn't even play yesterday, and you out here slappin dem keys lookin for lulz? laugh.gif
We're going to pretend like all Man U fans watching the ARS vs LEI match weren't praying for our downfall?

Ready to taste the joyous tears of Arsenal fans after losing to Barca.
Then, missing the title race and not going to have a chance to win it in the next foreseeable future can hopefully finally send them into obscurity and they become the next Liverpool or what United is trying desperately not to become currently. Arsenal is already there, the fans are just in denial roll.gif

And then Man U fans talking about Barca vs Arsenal minutes after we beat Leicester City

We can't enjoy our victory over the #1 team right now?

Like "I can't wait for Barca to give y'all that work" type ish, when that ain't even y'all squad

Focus on y'all Europa League qualifying instead of hating on Arsenal

Not YOU or anyone in particular, but not of Man U supporters and otherwise throwing shade

I seent it.

Acting like y'all don't do exactly the same every week laugh.gif

Also who wouldn't enjoy seeing probably the biggest underdog in PL history win it all? Rooting for them against everyone but us laugh.gif

That Barca pen was highly disrespectful to me. Honestly if this was RM and CR7 the world would be flipping out on his arrogance. Surprised the other team didn't go for some cheap shots after that.

Missed the whole weekend of footy was out in NYC. City mean.gifmean.gifmean.gif still haven't sent the penalty call. Arsenal getting it done and United losing...

Yea I thought it was one of the most disrespectful things I've seen done to an opponent on the pitch when I saw it in real time laugh.gif. After reading up on the background I kinda felt 50/50 since it was also kind of an homage to Johan Cruyff who originated that kind of penalty. I say homage because he's been battling cancer recently so I have a feeling Leo was probably doing it in his honor but it was still type grimey laugh.gifsick.gif

I agree that some folks would've lost their **** if CR7 or Benz pulled that laugh.gif

As a coach I would have no problems with one of my players 2 leg tackling Messi after that Penalty
post #23319 of 50776
No racial but if that happened in certain parts of South America, Africa or the middle East there would of been an ensuing brawl.

Never seen that type of penalty at all. Only been into footy for about 6 or so years. How was that a legit play? Does the touch/layoff trigger a live ball that can only be played forward by both teams? The runner has to be outside the box before the touch/layoff otherwise it would be encroachment/offsides right?

Disrespectful. **** outta here laugh.gif

Football is supposed to be entertaining, fans want to be entertained, they tried a different way of taking a pen. That's if. They're by far and away the best team in the world. Let them flourish.

Same with Neymar, if a player from one of your teams pulled that off you'd be ******* loving it. I know I would if Riyad did it laugh.gif

I agree 100%. Sometimes I wonder why players don't try taking pens like that more often especially since its legal. I wonder what the success rate would be if it was a more common thing to do.

As long as Suarez didn't encroach the box before Leo touched it(it has to go forward, and it did) it's legit. Also, the penalty taker is not allowed to touch it again until some one else has.
It's totally legal and that's why it stood. It's not disrespectful it's just clever.

I called it disrespectful and filthy, cause yeah, I'd probably be mad if someone did that to me laugh.gifmean.gif

But realistically, I'm caught in two minds.

A part of me prefers when you just continue to attack your opponent and win without needing to completely humiliate your opponent. (See Germany at the WC, had they not spent the next few days going on and on about how they didn't want to humiliate their opponent laugh.gif )

But then again, I love watching Neymar attempt rainbow's in the middle of a match. The flair shouldn't be lost in the game. I guess it's a balancing act....

Highly disrespectful? You guys moral crusaders now? If you don't want them making assists off PKs, do your job as a defender and pay more attention while standing outside of the penalty box. It's not like Suarez has a distance advantage, he's taking off from the same spot as the defender is.

We said it was disrespectful.

We didn't say we didn't like it.

And your point is? I've seen salty Argentinian defenders slide in with two legs after getting nutmegged, it's a piss poor way to react to getting sonned.

Dude who said if CR7 and X did that there would be outrage about his arrogance is on point.

I didn't have an issue with them doing that though

Edit: imagine CR7 passing up a penalty though roll.gif

Dude actually might get some credit for getting his homie the hat trick
post #23335 of 50776

Ronaldo would let Bale take the pen and then talk him into laying it off for him, he's getting that goal no matter what.

If you watch the replay in slow motion Suarez was in before messi touched the ball. But its like calling a lane violation in basketball. Just saying if this becomes a thing dudes gonna be getting mugged on the run up. Like as soon as the shooter starts his run up just grab the other team's players on the outside of the box...whats the worst that can happen...another penalty will be given laugh.gif they will actually have to take a real one?

I agree with prime though. It was entertaining...but if that were my team and we were getting stomped and the other team did this...best believe the rest of the game with be "chippy" to say the least.

Yeah if you take away the surprise factor, the success rate of that play wouldn't be very high.
