Will you all please calm down. Maybe not all of you. Maybe some of you. Possibly none of you. United are going up this season. Rafa Benitez is our manager. Two poor performances and results will be long forgotten come May.
The team is patched up. Players starting who may not even make the bench come mid September. The reaction at the end of Huddersfield was ridiculous. Who booed? Why? rafa Benitez is trying to build a dynasty and you’re ‘venting your frustration’. Piss off.
SJP needs to be supportive. Hostile to the opposition. Wednesday is a great chance for the team and fans to redeem themselves. It’s gone really badly so far. Rafa has said it. Things will change. It will get better. Hopefully this week. Maybe next. All our dreams came true. Compare us to this time last year under McClaren. Think of this time next year.
Paul Dummet is a struggling left back. Anita isn’t a winger. Rafa knows – he’s trying to fix it. Shelvey blows hot and cold. Ritchie looks class. The rest not so good. Get behind the lads. Another game. Another chance.
Reading were beaten 2 0 at Wolves. They’re beatable. They’ve a new manager in Jaap Staam I know little about. They’ll be up for it as Hudersfield were but most likely not backed by 3,200. Let’s beat them, and if we don’t – fine. It’ll happen for us, soon.
Prediction 2 1 United
