Finally, first competitive game of the season! Fuck all Macedonians and everyone that got one of those €15 tickets, I didn't want to go anyway. These few things aside, can't wait for tonight, I think we're in with a good shot. Seeing as Mourinho has preferred 3 at the back lately I'm going with :
Mourinho and his cowardice cost us first half, improved in the second with the additions of Rashford and Fellaini who caused Madrid problems. Madrid are the best team in the world and a class above so no shame in losing to them and the score line wasn't embarrassing. We gave it a go but we're a long way off that level.
Matic was very good and looks to be a great signing, Lukaku did ok given the service and he'll get us goals this season as for Lindelof well I'm not sure what Mourinho see's in him, he looks so timid at the minute so a lot of work to do there.
We look pretty sharp going into the season, the PL will show us whether we've improved or not
That Madrid side have been together a long time and are bulging with confidence and know-how. We're basically starting from scratch. They all now know, if they didn't before, what the bench mark looks like.
