...and everything is on Peacock. So I guess I'll be following the text commentary on The Guardian.

Stupid online only games. :/

In other news of "brand new manager, same old shiat", Fred again gets a start. The Pundit Narrative(tm) towards the end of last season was that he was Utd's "most improved player" and one of the few to come out of last season with any credit.

I don't get it. I have no idea what he contributes to the team, and when I see how effective McTominay is as an attacking midfielder, it's pretty obvious what the weak point in "MacFred" is.

Brighton with a first minute shot that hits the side netting.

Fred was Untidy's "most improved player"? If by that you mean "most like The Invisible Ozil", that would be correct.

Mind you, looking at Utd's squad right now, I'm not sure who is better (and fit). Apart from a couple of names, it's a veritable "Who's That?" of footballing talent. I don't even recognize half the names, others I'm surprised to see are still on the payroll (presumably trapped in a locker in a disused room somewhere?). There's not a name on there that would inspire fear (or double marking) from an opponent. It's a squad that just screams "mid-table".

No kidding. Half that roster sounds like they plucked them from either the League Championship, or some B-squads in UEFA.

Oh that was a beautiful cross
 
2022-08-07 9:31:57 AM  
Pascal Grob left completely unmarked at the back post to tap in the opening goal.

Nice cross, but terrible defending.

Next week, at least according to my NBC affiliate, Brentford vs. Manchester United. This could be a balls-up that makes me wonder if I should watch.

/would not be surprised if last minute it gets pulled into the 'Cock

Go for a stop, just backpedaling in the box and giving them that opportunity

I'm sitting here shacking my head.
See what ManU needs to improve on for the squad.
 
2022-08-07 9:43:44 AM  
Afternoon All,

Good day for black and white stripes yesterday. I'll see if I can chip in a bit more this season.
 
2022-08-07 9:48:33 AM  
Meet the new ManU, same as the old ManU.
 
2022-08-07 10:06:47 AM  
Well, Leicester went into the break up 1, and 30 seconds into the second half have doubled the lead
 
2022-08-07 10:10:11 AM  
Ronaldo getting ready to check in to try and save ManU's mess again.

"Exchanging words of a non-pacifist nature" is going in the ol' lexicon

I could see that phrase making its way into the hockey threads.

Even among the better players, it seems there is a surplus of decent-but-not-outstanding players in certain positions, and nothing in others.

And let's be frank here, any team that fields Fred and Maguire is going to concede goals. Just a question of how many. In fairness though, I think Maguire could excel elsewhere. He just needs to get away from Utd.

Well, with the rescheduled World Juniors starting on Tuesday; we might get to try it out
 
2022-08-07 10:17:36 AM  
And I would say something about Man Utd, but I don't want to jinx anything
 
2022-08-07 10:18:52 AM  
Well saved... oh, flag is up so it doesn't matter
 
2022-08-07 10:19:43 AM  
Brentford sting Leicester, Toney cuts it to a 1 goal gap
 
2022-08-07 10:20:21 AM  
That should have been one back from Rashford.
But Sanchez spread himself wide and made the save.

Almost 3-1, but post laughed it off
 
2022-08-07 10:24:50 AM  
I don't really understand the finer points and the ins-and-outs of football, but Rashford appears to be having one of them games.
 
2022-08-07 10:26:09 AM  
Nice save by Sanchez.
 
2022-08-07 10:27:09 AM  
Let's go!!!!! 1-2
 
2022-08-07 10:27:11 AM  
Own goal gives ManU some hope.

Rashford has been having one of those games for several months now, unfortunately.

This pressure is great, let's get another!!!

Only good thing with Spectrum, we got a 1 year Peacock+

Scrolling through content other than EPL, not sure who is paying for it

LOL, missed my team play again. I just can't wrap my head around Kaiserslautern games being shown on ESPN regularly. There's a replay though.
