Poor performance today but credit to Chelsea awful midweek good today .
We suddenly need a new manager and 10 new players .

Role on the international break hopefully we come back the same team that went in to the last one .
Few Injuries and a bit of a slump it's time like this that the manager needs to earn his money and justify his reputation.

Just a confidence issue in my opinion, 3-4 positions strengthened between now and September.

Are we under performing now or were we over performing before? I really don't know the answer but recently we have stuttered and stuttered and flattered to deceive. Midfield seems to be the issue for me, we have a lot of talent up front and enough in defence but in the middle we are lacking. Pogba will help but I think we are a world class CM short of being a very good team. Everyone bangs on about full backs and a wide rIght player but I think the yawning gap is in the middle of midfield, we need another star in there and we will be fine.

So if we go out and buy a player he will come in and play great?
Who honestly played well today, some good players out there today had very poor games.

Obviously a lot depends on what Jose wants to do. But from what the editor has said we are looking at the position where most of us feel we need to strengthen. If we are adopting the 3 CB formation then we will likely need another CB, this ties in with what the editor says.

I don't need to mention the fullback positions as they are obviously areas we need to improve and areas Jose is looking to improve. Perisic is a player Jose really wanted, but screwed up by Woodward. Hence the tension. A box to box midfielder that will replace Fellaini in all likelihood.

So we don't need ten new players, but we did do when Jose took over. Anyway, let's get behind the team and hope our fortunes change.

Never a guarantee a signing will work out well Jred. But managers buy players to improve the team/ squad. So that's what Jose will do.

But he has bought players .
Buy a new cb? Lindelof can't even get in the squad.
We lack a creative 10? that why we bough Miki, Mata can't get in the squad .
Buy a wide player? are we getting the best out of either martial or Rasford?

United like all teams will buy players every summer but at some point you need to deliver.
Start of the season most people would of been happy with a midfield 3 of Miki Herrera matic there not bad players . Options of martial rash and lukaku up top .

Lindelof isn't deemed ready and from what I have seen have to agree with Jose. He was also a MU target prior to Jose taking over. So don't think he was a Mourinho signing per se. As the editor said Smalling and potentially Jones were available for sale during the summer, so I guess one or both still have a price. Also with playing three at the back, you need six as Jose likes two players for each position.

I guess you could say same for Miki, he doesn't really have someone pushing him in that position. I guess we can wait and see what Jose wants, but for me we need to strengthen 3-4 positions, maybe five in the squad.

Was lindelof really a United target before Jose come to the club he had only made 15 first team appearances?

05 Nov 2017 21:22:49
Didn't we fail to sign him the season before? I'm probably wrong. Maybe he was a Jose choice? But certainly isn't ready yet anyhow. Mind you Vidic didn't start too well, but didn't turn out to shabby.
