    Sorry – just plain forgot your longrunning feud with Ian (amongst others). Bit tactless that.

    Cardiff at home is do-able and better than a potential giant killer pairing – where we seem to come unstuck far too often.

    We should be thinking of NO losses in the next three games – if we get 6 or 7 from 9 then we’ll keep our momentum. Other sides won’t be wanting to play us either – even form teams like Southampton though that game may well be an accident wating to happen

    Chuffed as anyone about yesterday’s win and don’t want to put a downer on the achievement but saying Pardew was tactical genius is stretching it. Ketsy is finally right, manure are a pale shadow of a CL Team of past days. It’s possible they will rev up at the end of the season but it looks more like a struggle to get into Europa for them. It was a great team performance but the Manchester United of a season or so ago would have done us in time honoured fashion. Perspective not criticism.

    We should have had something there the last two years – but we missed out last season and got the point the year before but might have snuck the win then.
    Hope we treat Southampton with same respect but lack of fear. We need to keep up with challenging the opposition when they’ve got possession. – what we didn’t do agin Swansea

    News just in:

    “Around 50% of United fan’s around the world are reported to have thrown away their United kits and memorabilia in favor of Arsenal. Our top analysist believes that it is no mere coincidence that Arsenal have seen a surge in popularity due to their current position at the top of the table.

    When questioned about who Arsenal’s best striker was, one young youth replied with Emmanuel Adebayor. Another ‘fan’; who had just come out of the store with a newly printed ‘Arnold Ransey’ Shirt also claimed that his all time favorite Arsenal player was Robby Perez, the goalkeeper”

    Martinez only fit for getting teams into a relegation scrap didn’t you know .

    Don’t see anyone slagging him off on here anymore even though I was slated for wanting him as NUFC manager .

    I thought there were quite a few Martinez supporters here. It might have just been the fact the media was “w***ing” over him while he was at Wigan, which causes footie fans across the internet to harp on even more about him.

    But technically speaking, we tend to rate and love any manager who isn’t our own these days 🙂

    If it is true that he said he prefers to lose beautifully than win ugly, than he must have a lot of fans. That is a very good approach. A manager that knows that the way is as important as the result for the long run.

    Oleg, I dunno, ask a Wigan fan if he would have traded a few ugly wins for beautiful losses, they may have still been in the PL

    We are talking about the manager though, not about the teams he managed. A good manager not always equal a successful side. Everton sure love him so far.

    Oleg you judge a manager on his team surely?
    Everton are having a good season but it is largely Moyes team and in particular Moyes defence which are very very solid.

    Surely it’s far too soon to judge Martinez ?

    I always liked him until he gave that spineless justification of McNanaman’s disgusting foul – he did it again defending another hatchet job one of his players did on someobody else soon after – so to clothe him with integrity in playing the ‘beautiful’ game just doesn’t ring true.

    Apology accepted Jesper, if yo had read my earlier posts I had made the point that HBA was worth perservering with as he is still a huge asset for us.

    So, we won at Man U and it didn’t even feel tense! I went for Sissoko MOM because he has taken to that winger role very well. Enjoying our results and games these days. Since I was a harsh critic I have to give credit where it’s due – for now 🙂

    Thanks coach.

    On Martinez:
    His teams always play good football, even with crap players. That says something. Today, they gave the (future) champs a game.

    Moyes never had Lukaku. Martinez win rate with Wigan was 28.98.

    Ask Wigan fans how much they loved winning the FA cup and getting in to Europe for the fist time.

    Martinez had to sell off Moses, Valencia, Palacios, Rodallega, Cattermole etc and regularly play the likes of Caldwell. Last season was just one season too far.

    Martinez has Lukaku, we have Remy, what’s the problem? Good use of the loan market.

    I am sire the Wiagan fans loved winning the FA cup but on balance I am sure they would prefer playing Man U in the PL rather than Boro in the Championship.

    tequila…I am completly behind reading comments at the moment – had to leave suddenly just after my smirky comment (it was a bit bad taste so I do honestly apologies). I just saw a quick reply from you and a felt bad!

    Sometimes things that are meant to be funny just come out wrong and it doesn’t help when you leave someone hanging.

    I probably need to apologies to Ruddy as well. Ruddy if you are there I do apologies. You will get one “in person” so to speak later if you are not here 🙂
