Don’t like the 2nd half we dropped off but the penalty awarded to them was rubbish, Herrera got the ball

Didnt watch leh, any hint of positive play?

A lot of positive play

3-0 up by half time...attacking line up. Both FBs go up frequently to support the attack. Fred managed to play when we are defensively comfortable. So did McTominay as his birthday present. The only blip is some aweful refereeing, took away out clean sheet and made it up by giving Fulham a weak red card.

Overall a positive performance. Oh and LKK finally scored at OT.

Conspiracy theory, what if Ed has been interfering with selection tactic?

We started the season with Pogba being vice captain, wasn't too long before he was stripped.

Took another while before JM could finally drop him, not as if we couldn't tell he was playing as though he couldn't really care.

But what if JM knew all along actually?

Watched 2 games at Old Trafford. 9 goals in total. 1 red card. What a game!

Why can't United play like that every game?

Watching live n I can see rashford off the ball movement is very good. Always pressing n chasing.

Lkk in comparison is ****. Can't run can't hold ball can't press. His pressing is atrocious. The fans beside me always fff lkk lol.

Nice, glad that you got your money's worth. It's better than watching a drab 0-0 game. Did you wait for the players this time around to get autograph/selfies?

You lucky bugger, not bad a return for you I guess, caught at least 45 mins of nice flowing football akin to the United many of us knew. Could've been even better if AnthonyM was playing instead of RomeluL.

DiogoD still looks like one for the long term, but I would reserve final thoughts until at least 5 or 10 games. We all saw what happened to AlexB and MatteoD who started really well in the first 3 or 4.

NemanjaM was playing on one of his best modes today, and is helped greatly with the energetic AnderH and very consistent JuanM. No ball waster-hogger in the midfield helps a lot.

So it does seem like the coaching team puts in effort to design moves, but that is very dependent on the opposition players not being on their tip top form. Credit where it's due, but I think they can still do better than that.

Comparatively poor 2nd half, shows how prone we are to individual mistakes when we are on the back foot. And it was a very mediocre Fulham.

Good display of what we are capable of, now they need to keep it going for this whole period.

Finally, pretty awful refereeing today. Felt like we were the away team with the amount of tolerance shown to the Fulham midfield.

Ah, it's alright, there's always another time. At least you get to watch Utd score 6 goals and a win at OT as well as soak in the atmosphere.

Let's not get carried away. I thought that Fulham was a very weak team, not us playing fantastic football.

I'm quite worried looking at our next game. This team always prove us wrong when everyone has high hopes.

Dalot is a good player for us. His crossing ability gives us more threat from the right. Balances our play.

I think his throw ins for a fullback is rather weak. I am just being critical.
Our bigger and smarter Trippier I hope.
