- Haller looked like a quicker, fitter Andy Carroll. Was impressed with him. Especially in the 1st half :thup:

- Wilshere looked great in the 1st half and showed how good he could be in the right formation;

- Minus his final ball I thought Fredericks looked great;

- Rice looks like he has balked up a bit over the summer and in the right formation and more support from his central midfield partner I am sure he can have another good season;

- even know his substitution weakened us and saw us collapse I thought 'attacking wise' Fornals showed a lot of promise and his final ball was very good.

- the claret carpet looked as beautiful as it did last season :scarfer:

I thought Haller’s first touch at times was utterly sublime. He’s going to have a monster season for us.

Highly likely, either them or the Red Mancs.

I do think Haller will prove to be a great signing.

We've only got to play them one more time and being away they might be complacent. Everyone else has to play them twice.

Absolutely, his class shown through yesterday and he will be the difference for us this season.

Chelsea getting pumped by the red Mancs, makes me feel less concerned after yesterday.

Three teams had worse results than ours ( allowing for a Man City premium)

Absolutely no chance of falling any lower in the league table. The only way is up...............

he was on the NBC after game slot and he gave a pretty decent summation of the game and how it played out.......

I think he realises he has a big job on........(that's me stating the bleedin' obvious)...

And the FA Cup...
Still, we're the strongest team in the league. We're holding everybody else up...
