I get the frustration, but from the replay there didn't exactly seem to be a lot of contact if any. Neves was trying to be clever and buy a free-kick.  Bruno on the other hand was kicked right in the face. It's hardly equivalent.

 

It's daylight robbery if this is the final score though. I can't believe United are ahead considering the match as a whole.

Yeah, I understand,  and as I say, I’m more annoyed we kicked it out, but United players hadn’t seen a replay, so they didn’t know either way.

Three 1-0 losses is tough to take to be honest, we’ve deserved something from all three games. 
 

Still, much better than last season, exciting to watch. 

Didn’t watch the 2nd game but you were the better team against us and United. Think you’ll do pretty well this season once Jimenez hits form.

Yeah he looks very rusty which is understandable. 
 

We’ve just signed a forward from RB Leipzig but no idea what he’s like.

Traore also suffers from the Stirling affliction. When either of them have time on the ball in front of goal they invariably make the wrong decision. Stirling has got better so hopefully Traore can rectify this. 
 

Plus Leics, Spurs, United is a really horrible start to the season. That you’ve not really been outclassed should give you comfort. Especially when you compare that with Arsenal.

He may get to be as good as Sterling at some point though :P

Just seen a still that shows neves was caught, so a little unlucky. 
 

Congratulations to United though, big deal to win games like that. 
 

That Wanbisaka (sorry, almost certainly spelled wrong) clearance first half probably won you the game.

Definitely, incredible clearance. The shot was powerful and got through De Gea, I don’t know how he managed to do it.

More than a little unlucky overall.  That clearance and the De Gea save would each be annoying things to happen against you in isolation. Both in the same match seems a bit unfair!

 

Edit - I don't think United were under any obligation to kick the ball out, but it was a foul. Is there a ladder placed above the Wolves turnstiles for you all to walk under on the way into the ground?  It's ended up being one of those wins you feel oddly guilty about.

Well, all afternoon there had been talk of what a model professional Kane is, and even talk of how he's self-isolating that's why he's not playing.  Not a huge amount of condemnation of him for trying to force a move by effectively going on strike. 

 

When Pogba was brought up, Souness dismissed his performance, getting four assists, as no more than should be expected considering his price tag, then they started talking about how Pogba was probably going to leave United at the end of the season.  They started talking about Pogba's agent constantly talking about Pogba moving. Richards made the point that despite what his agent says, Pogba has never made himself unavailable, or talked up a move elsewhere himself, that he always plays and tries to help his team win, so why doesn't he get called a model professional? I don't know if Richards' point was completely correct, but he does have a point about the bias some pundits have against Pogba (he was obviously aiming at Souness) and said they're supposed to be neutral. He asked why it might be that the likes of Pogba are treated differently than the likes of Kane by the Sky pundits, and that weasel presenter insisted that they move on.


holy fuck souness really has it in for pogba

Hwang looked very good for RB Salzburg a couple of years ago, not sure what happened at Leipzig but it seems he didn't get many games there.

 

How much have Wolves paid for him?

Cheers for that, sounds interesting. 
 

Year long loan with an option at around 13m I believe
