agree, to say we could've nicked it would be insulting, we were 2/3 goals better than them with sadly, a team that can't score goals.

if we had a AJ up front, or a young Dougie Freedman, Armstrong or Wrighty, we would've beaten them 2-0 today. quite easily on that showing, I watched the entire match.

A good performance, but not 2 goals better by any stretch. Wayne saved us on 2 occasions, De Gea not really troubled. Kouyate, PVA and Townsend lack composure in front of goal.
Sakho and Tomlins were excellent again, our best centre half pairing in years.

We could have beaten them 2-0 at least if we had a decent goal scorer, that's a thrashing in my book. Just because it's Man UTD it doesn't automatically make them a good team, they played pretty awfully today and gave us all the chances we needed and if we'd taken those chances we would have won.

I think it's a bit of an insult to say we could have nicked it.

Ok if 2-0 is a thrashing, yep we could have thrashed them. But then if hennessey hadn't had a blinder they could have thrashed us 2-0. Personally delighted with a draw, slightly dissapointed we disn't nick it..

Their bench valued at £100m didn't do them any good.

I still cant believe Lindelof beat jordan ayew with a bag leg .

Would have liked to have seen Sorloth come for the last 20 minutes, particularly given that Lindelof was hobbling and presumably couldn't have jumped. The ends certainly justified the means today though and of course our big problem is that the bench is weak.

Have you not seen Sorloth play this season????

Does a point away from home get any better than that? If we had taken all 3 who would say “we didn’t deserve it”

Get a striker in January and we will climb away from trouble, we’ll done lads for a gritty performance...

Exactly. Break the bank if necessary...no more excuses. After today I feel we are a goalscorer away from mid-table stability

The best thing from the game today was not the point, welcome as it was , but the fact that we did not get beaten in the dying minutes of the game after putting in a great performance. From all our recent games we have played wel and got kicked in the teeth in the dying moments which must have gradually knocked back the teams confidence. This result today more than anything will have fully restored our beliefs and confidence to build over the coming fixtures COYP

My biggest worry was that Roy would bring on the donkey as two fresh pairs of legs near the end of game but fortunately, he didn't. He's 'ing useless!

Hennessey did have a blinder (as I pointed out before, MotM definitely) and if we'd done Man U 2-0, even if they were having a bad day, adding the hypothetical goals (the only ones we have these days unfortunately) to the performance of the rest of the team would have been a thrashing as far as I'm concerned, I don't think many on here would disagree.

To say that if we'd won we would have "nicked it" shows far too much respect for the way Man U played today and is pretty insulting to Palace but that's all moot anyway because we can't hit a barn door with a banjo at the moment so we're going to struggle to beat the s***test of teams, let alone the so-called elite.

It was my first visit to Old Trafford for 35 years. I used to go and stand on the Stretford end when I lived up in Manchester for 3 years in my uni days.
I was stunned by what has become of the fanbase, totally pathetic support, whatever happened to them, where did they vanish to?
The years of success under Sir Alex seems to have turned the club into an over expectant soulless, lifeless bunch of joyless football watchers, they are certainly not supporting their club with anything except their money.

Up the Palace with our proper support, down with the 600 million Man Unt watchers

Great result and we are hard to beat. But unless this group of players find a way of keeping their nerve in front of goal when the big chance comes their way we’re going to be in serious trouble.

was a problem last season when we were creating far more chances A lot being made of the need for a striker but we lack quality in the final third generally.
