You were impressed by Kennedy? What exactly he did that was impressive? I honestly saw nothing that stood out but to each his own. Did Hazard even play today? Serious question.

Signing of the season so early? Wanna reach November first Adit?! Though Costa is doing really well, no doubt about it.

Pretty sure Izzy being the non Palace fan is loving today.

Kennedy won the ball back high up the pitch which helped Chelsea continue mounting pressure on the Palace defence, he also ran up and down the pitch helping his attackers by giving Hazard an outlet on the left and trying to put crosses in. You never get that from Azpi

Looks as if Hazard is having a reap slump, Palace is the sort of team he excelled in last season. He must be missing Oscar

Costa is great but still a little immature imo. Robben should teach him how to shoot because his shots are really poor atm

Doc, when you see Costa making the right decision everytime, super pace coupled with amazing dribbling and Crossing you know that guy is legit and not a chance taker like Di Maria.Guy almost every times makes the right decision.

All I saw Kennedy do run was up and down honestly. Nothing special but nothing bad. Pedro showed a bit of that uselessness he is known for minus that cross. Which was lovely btw.

Tottenham Everton is alright though Kane blew his load with that 1v1. Timed his run like a prime Romario and finished like Torres. Guy's confidence in his own ability has been shot to shit. Or maybe he is another Kevin Phillips.

I don't doubt Costa's ability or his form with Bayern Adit. Just wouldn't obviously call him signing of the season considering it's so young. To all we know, Kovacic can be the signing of the season. Or Pedro. Or Di Maria (:

Like any new very fast/energetic player... the opposition doesn't have a scouting report on Costa yet.  So they're playing him straight up.  Once teams know his tendencies, then we'll see how good he is.  Has skill though. Di Maria was on fire when he joined Madrid and then teams adjusted for example.

Doubt United would want to part with DDG after Romeros performance today.

The Philosopher at his best again. Ostracize his best goal keeper and then, when after 1 match against a decent opponent, it's being realised that maybe Romero is in fact not good enough, they are gonna scramble to plead to De Gea that Utd is the place he needs to be in. This is after The Philosopher made good work of his relationship with Valdes, his countryman.

He is a worse man manager than Mourinho. The way he treated players like Valdez, ADM and DDG was/is disgraceful.

I didn't think Romero was at fault for the goals. I think LVG is more concerned about his faulty offense namely Rooney, not to mention his own poor tactics.

He was outmanaged today by Garry Monk

I honestly never rated him that high. The kid has talent but he's been grossly overhyped.

I respect those who think he's good. But to me, and as a Real Madrid fan, I wouldn't want Real Madrid to sign him even for free. And that's not a hyperbole.

I got scared at first, given Perez's uncontrollable urge of breaking the world's transfer record fee every full moon, and I thought he might go after Pogba. Thank god he didn't.

You guys realize Pogba has been playing with Padoin and another scrub as his midfield teammates AND Mandzu/Dybala as the striker pairing, right??? Morata, Marchisio, Khedira and Sandro are all hurt. Cuadrado just joined. He's basically playing in a Serie B side or low level Serie A other than the defense and keeping.

A little logical perspective is always nice Laughing

Incidentally, once Allegri brought on Cuadrado, Pereyra and Morata... suddenly Pogba looked like Pogba. Why? There were threats on the pitch for him to work with. Almost got that final ball to Morata for the draw.

Second goal was definitely on romero even the first one was saveable. Dont get me started on his awful distribution, there was an instance where he cleared it straight to jonjo shelvey who was just outside the penalty area but his shot was straight at romero. Uniteds defence did well to shield him

I don't rate Pogba particularly because I prefer technically gifted midfielders. I don't see him as one. He also doesn't have the work rate to be a great B2B. He's a good player but not worthy of a 100m investment, even in today's market. You pay that money for a special talent like James Rodriguez for example.

PSG currently beating Monaco 2-0.

I know they don't have much tough opposition in Ligue 1, but they look good and the game in Paris could be very tough

Aside from having no creativity, no game control and the fact that he gets dispossessed every time he inhales you mean? Well, he doesn't create chances or rarely ever does. He's not a through ball player. I know he tries, but he seems incapable of it. He lacks vision. His defensive game is mediocre. And is useless in the final third.

I'm pretty sure I could go on but I think you got the picture.

Ya I don't see where all this Pogba hate is coming from. I still think he would slot in perfectly for us in a 3 man midfield.

I would join in on the Paul hate only to harass Sports but I too don't quite get why he isn't rated by some of us here. He is quite legit honestly. I could see him in our midfield prospering easily.

Pogba is a very good player but just like Hazard I think he is rated higher than he should be

Anyways sport you reckon ADM will play on the right or was that just temporarily?

You're either French or a Juventus fan. If you're neither, I apologize in advance. If you are, I rest my case.

He is French, and he's quite biased about French players.

Pogba isnt all that tbh.. Not saying he's a bad player or anything like that. But i think he's physical resemblance with viera has decieved people into thinking he's some good fit for real or a defensive midfield controling god. Actually, i see it as a disaster in waiting if he joins real madrid considering reals needs or lack thereoff. Btw, we all know sports bias towards anything french.
