Always thought he was value from a footballing perspective actually. Highly surprised to see him back though.

Is it just me or has Silva been told to seriously bulk up/get on the pies? Was like a whippet when he first came over.

All a bit ugly at the end there.
Nasri really is a gutless little weed.
Not what you want to see regardless of which club you follow. Incidents like that are bad for the game.
Hart really is ****. You could put literally any other keeper in the league in City's net and the 1st and 3rd goals would not have happened.

Not really having the Hart backlash, to be honest. He's not ****ing Superman but he's the best keeper in the league and it's not close.

Nasri clearly more at fault for the 3rd goal than Hart. If he doesn't move and then flick his leg at it half heartedly then the ball never gets that far anyway. Typical French surrender monkey, no bottle.
The first goal was probably the worse of the two though. You're right he's caught out but whose fault is that? If every keeper was caught out every time someone put it in the opposite corner every game would finish 5-5. Neither are 'mistakes' as such but they're both piss poor goalkeeping.
Hart isn't close to being the best keeper in the league. I don't really get you with goalkeepers tbh, Hart has made at least as many high profile errors as De Gea in the last year (might even be more tbh, though he has played more games as well tbf) yet De Gea is League One and Hart is the best keeper in the league?
I don't remember hearing any of this criticism when De Gea let one in from Mata on that side. And that may just be the price you pay for saves like the one he made from Mata at 3-3 last season.
Well no, because it gives Hart a great chance when Rooney smashes it into the other corner. As everyone in the ground was expecting him to, I think. There were two defenders blocking the shot into the corner where he scored; when he gets it past both of them, you probably just have to say well done. It's exactly the same intuition as you've used for the second.The first goal was probably the worse of the two though. You're right he's caught out but whose fault is that? If every keeper was caught out every time someone put it in the opposite corner every game would finish 5-5.
They both boil down to the same thing- keeping is all about positioning and positioning is a percentage game. Hart's been beaten on his positioning twice today but, trying not to be results-oriented about it, I think both times his positioning was fine. The clear shot into the near corner looked far more of a threat for Rooney's first and you can't really account for what Nasri did for RVP's.
And I think his positioning's very good generally too. But if you don't agree I can't really argue, it's just a judgment I've made from watching him constantly bail Citeh out over the past 18 months. Keeping is really subjective.
I just think this is nonsense. De Gea's made far more outright mistakes, probably had a few more "maybe could have done better" moments, and far, far less world-class stops.Hart isn't close to being the best keeper in the league.

Can't believe how stupid Clichy was to give away the ball in the position he was in to set United up for that free kick. I don't even care about Nasri, Clichy is a ****ing idiot and I'm so ****ing sick of watching his ******** ass float around the pitch like a piece of ****. Nutmegged and out of position on both of the first two goals as well. Get ****ed.

That Everton game finished excitingly.
Not seen Moyes that pumped up since he scored twice at Maine Road.
