Pre-Match Discussion Premier League vs Sunderland (a)

Away to Sunderland in the Premier League
Sunday 09th April 2017, KO 13:30 BST

Sunderland have gone 6 games without scoring, so they will probably take the lead against us. Januzaj cannot play in this one, which is a shame for him as Jose has apparantly already made his mind up on his future, and whilst he wont say what that means, it's likely not good.

fully agree with Jose's comments on Chicarito.While it's true he doesnt offer much else than goals , he's a poacher like Inzaghi , we need his end product.

From Sky :

Jose Mourinho says Javier Hernandez would already have 20 goals this season if he was still a Manchester United player.

United are 20 matches unbeaten in the Premier League but have drawn half of those, and their tally of 43 goals is 10 lower than any other side in the top seven.

Mourinho is on record as saying he would have kept Hernandez, who was sold to Bayer Leverkusen during Louis van Gaal's time in charge.

The United boss, speaking at his Friday press briefing, admitted signing a new striker this summer is an option and again brought up the Mexican's name unprompted.

"We have some players that are not really players in love with the goal," he said. "They are good players, they are creative players, they can create, but naturally they are not the kind of guy that is a killer.

"I give you a simple example. In the way we play at Old Trafford, in the way we dominate opponents in the way we play in their box, I think Chicharito would have 20 goals easy. Even coming from the bench for the last 10 or 20 minutes, he will have 20 goals.

"He is a guy that naturally the ball comes, rebound here, rebounds there, boom - goal. The goalkeeper saves, he goes there, tap in - goal. The cross is coming, he anticipates the first post header - goal.

"And not even coming from the bench, we have this kind of player that scores 10, 15 goals and gives you 10 or 15 more points.

"We play well, most of the time, not always obviously, but we play well, we create a lot, we don't score enough goals for the way we play and the teams that come to Old Trafford."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has bucked the goal-shy trend at United with 27 in his first season, but the 35-year-old is yet to commit to another year.

Asked if an experienced striker was on his shopping list Mourinho said: "I cannot buy a striker more experience than Zlatan!

"We have Marcus Rashford. We believe in Marcus, that's no doubt. Are we going to buy a striker? Maybe, maybe."

Stupid Sunderland fans booing Herrera when he didnt roll around or act like he was badly hurt. Was a straight referee decision.

If Herrera wore any other shirt than a United one i would despise him. I find him a bit annoying as it is

Will freely admit that he regularly exaggerates how badly he's been hit and I don't care for it either but on this occasion it didn't go like that so why boo him when the blame lies with your own player for a dangerous challenge?
As I said.....stupid
