Hard to call this one. We are poor away from home yet we've still only lost league one game since November or so, Swansea are on a bad run of league form and look less of a threat without Bony but they always worry me as a team.

I'll go for 2-2.

I don't understand what the fuck Monk is doing with the starting line-up. Thrashing imminent.

I don't think we are capable of handing out a thrashing at the moment.

My optimism from previous weeks of thinking this is the game we click has completely evaportated. I'm now resigned to preparing myself for an ordeal. We're so boring.

More open game and we seem to be taking a few more tactical risks, which is a breath of fresh air. McNair looks good a RB.

Is McNair injured? He had a good first half I thought.

I thought so too, he must have picked up a knock.

At least it hasn't been a boring disappointment this week.

Spot on prediction, this is the best they've played in months and are losing to a freak goal. I hope LVG perseveres with Rooney up front and doesn't use a (potential) loss to revert back. This has been a decent game to watch at least.

Don't see how the players will ever have faith in Plan A if they switch to the hoof-to-Fellaini Plan B as soon as things don't go their way.

Man Utd have no fucking clue in the final 3rd. For all the possession I wonder how many shots on target they had compared to Swansea in that 2nd half.

Flattering to deceive.

Exactly. Van Gaal has us playing such a risk-averse, possession by numbers, boring style of football right now. Possession is all well and good when you use it to your own advantage rather than to stifle the opposition. Today we didn't even manage that part.

RVP was hopeless again, shooting like Phil Mitchell after running a marathon.
