Liverpool 1-2 Manchester United: United come from behind to win | Zonal Marking


The analysis by Micheal Cox doesn't really address most of our concerns in the live thread and post-match, but it does make a distinction between Kagawa and Rooney, which should give us a hint of how each will be used in the hole. Also, clearly points out the frustrating long balls were a tactic, not us clearing our lines. However, their inaccuracy was because we didn't have people to dribble out and play better balls. Enjoy!

'Scholes is simply the best English player of his generation'


Yup. Regular readers of TBB know what I think of the little genius. How about though, these words from Gary Neville? Enjoy.

My Q&A answers for Pie Eaters Footie


If you happen to be curious, here are the answers I provided for Pie Eaters Footie -- the Wigan Athletic site on the SB Nation network. In case you missed it, our Q&A with them is posted right below this FanShot.

The lowdown on 5 deadline day signings including Buttner


SB Nation gave their verdict on five deadline day signings that may impact the Premier League. Alexander Buttner was included, but it seemed that was more because of the damming verdict they have given Patrice Evra's form over the last year or so. Other players included are Manchester City duo Javi Garcia and Maicon, Spurs Hugo Lloris (I don't see how you can drop Brad Friedel after his last game however) and Swansea's surprising signing of Pablo Hernandez, who could have a real impact for the Welsh team

'Tom Cleverley fits the bill in England's search for classic No10'


I personally don't see Tom Cleverley as a classic No.10 (I think he may be ideally suited as a driving-midfielder in a 4-1-2-3 system), despite impressing versus Moldova in an advanced midfield role. I think it's a bit of a reach to suggest the 23-year-old as England's new No.10 after just his first competitive match for country. Nonetheless, this piece by the Guardian's Richard Williams is some food for thought. Discuss.

'Premier League ponders salary cap or financial fair play as new cash looms'


I picture a dark room lit by candles while the outside of the building is cobblestone streets. That's probably not what happened. This is what one too many Rick Steves' book-guided walking tours does to the imagination in regards to thinking of trips throughout old continent. Anyway, this piece by the Guardian discusses a possible salary cap for the Premier League. Apparently, Manchester United is on board with the idea. I personally think the idea is splendid.

'The Joy of Six: memorable Manchester United v Southampton matches'


The Guardian's Scott Murray chronicles 6 memorable matches from the past between Manchester United and Southampton. Once all of the transfer madness dies down -- for other clubs at least -- perhaps this read will transition everyone into Southampton match mode.

'Premier League Transfer Deadline Preview'


Over at the dot-com, Callum Hamilton has this preview of the transfer deadline for each Premier League side. In my opinion, he has United summed up pretty well as the club seems unlikely to add another player as the deadline nears. However, I certainly think we could use a combative presence in central-midfield.

Dembele to Tottenham


Really thought he would have fit well at United. Not sure 15 million pounds would have been a reasonable price, but for up to 10 I would have loved to have him
