    Why so many awful 'Super Sundays' so far this season?


    This is the worst yet!

    It's always like this early in the season. Sky & BT must show every club a minimum amount of times so they like to get some of the smaller sides quota out of the way early so they aren't in a position where they're having to show Cardiff instead of a potential title decider towards the end of the season.

    Cardiff v Burnley??? wow :p

    Throwback to cold sleepy Super Sundays a few years ago with delights such as Wigan v Wolves or Portsmouth v Hull

    TBH 'Super' Sunday hasn't been quite so super for many years, I think it was West Ham v West Brom a couple of years ago that was amazing whereas the week before had Man U v Liverpool and Arsenal v Chelsea (or Tottenham) and there was 1 goal over both matches.

    Usually the best matches are the ones where the mid table teams have a proper go at each other.

    An afternoon of coverage dedicated to Dave Whelan and his leg is pretty super if you ask me! :D

    They were never putting a Chelsea vs Liverpool up against the Ryder cup on a Sunday tbh.

    What I don't get is why don't Sky have the Saturday lunch time kickoff this weekend? I thought they always had that and BT got the late game? I presume it must be them not wanting to take audience away from the Ryder Cup.

    Sanchez dropped completely despite travelling with the squad.

    Good goal, we're being taken apart already.

    Mourinho has just decided to play loads of central midfielders.

    Lovely goal. We have been pushed back and applied no pressure to get out. Result they find a way through.

    Lose today I think Mourinho is under a lot of pressure with the next fixtures

    So, how long has Mourinho got left then? Gone by Christmas? Sounds like the wheels have completely fallen off the bus there now.

    He's already started looking like a hobo, I reckon he rocks up with a sleeping bag and flask to the next press conference if they lose this.

    West Ham at 16/5 was a crazy price.

    United's play is just laboured and without instruction. The only things I can see is an attempt to be compact, which is playing to the wingers of West ham. And the lump balls to Fellaini from De Gea

    Mourinho used to be so tactically astute, it was one of his biggest strengths as a manager. At United he looks like he hasn't got a clue, he's constantly chopping and changing personnel and formation, there's no consistency at all.
