The last few games probably paint an accurate picture of where we really are. I think we'll be 3rd this year. We need to strengthen at FB, a box to box midfielder and perhaps a winger. Iibra is not the answer, too slow and ponderous. We are better than last year but not good enough yet.

Is pogba a box to box midfielder.

05 Nov 2017 20:42:22
Good post, agree with all of that.

05 Nov 2017 20:44:10
Ibra gives us a different option.

05 Nov 2017 20:56:26
Matic - Pogba -? .? .?

Jose is not a huge fan of Herrera.

I think Jose will add another CM. We're certainly looking at a few. Carrick and Fellaini going. McTominay getting a promotion too. We definitely need another box to box midfielder.

05 Nov 2017 20:57:42
So basically after spending nearly £500m, we still need nearly half a team.

05 Nov 2017 21:07:37
Has Jose spent £500m?

05 Nov 2017 21:36:25
Lindelof - Bailly - Pogba - Matic - Lukaku - Mikhitaryan

I can't think of any other signings. This is what we've bought thus far under Jose, and still not finished.

I didn't add Ibra as he was more of a stop-gap.

How many of them played well today? About 300 mil there.

05 Nov 2017 22:33:44
Well Matic was not bad, but that's about it.

Probably take £500m to complete rebuild.

Was Jose the right man to do it? We'll see.

I think they're all good signings though.

05 Nov 2017 23:00:49
Syd, you can say it's a confidence issue, and I could understand if the team couldn't buy a win. But we had a very good start, scoring for fun, and a good win against a rival for top 4 only last week. We're second in the league. How can it be a confidence issue? Unless you use the way we set up against a Liverpool team with a brittle defence, as evidence that José still didn't think his team were good enough to compete against them, and that mindset has trickled down to the players.

Question so if Jose had spent 550 to 600 mill and bought 14 players and we were top of the league, would people say he is great.

City bought 8 players previous summer and six this summer having people like Augero, Debruyne, Silva already in that squad before pep came. Many would argue he had the best striker, midfielders in the league already even before buying 14 players. the other 8 players currently starting are all new purchases. Ottamendi was also a purchase just before pep came on and he was touted as top defender and no slouch.

Whether you like to hear it or not we are going to need to buy more players so when you lose a Pogba, we don't see a drop in our performance the way we have seen.

We will need to replace our fullback just like city did in the summer and buy some cover for midfield and a long standing need to sort out the right wing. Yes Jose has bought but still making use of many of the existing players we had before coming on, which is not something pep has done.

4 more players of a certain quality will turn this team into a great team.

United will always buy more players but when you have cm options of pogba Mata Miki fellaini matic Herrera Carrick it's hard to make argument we need more cms .

Not many teams have the same options how did Chelsea do midweek with out kante?
How well is Harry winks doing at spurs after been given a chance?
I would add tripper as well .

City bought 2 fbs in the summer Mendy only played a couple of games delph has been playing there.
GK is the big difference apart from that it not a huge difference from last season .
Danilo has been playing who is nothing special but sterling sane kdb Silva stones are playing out there skins .
Not to mention fernadinho who suddenly looks the best cm

Do United need to buy some players yes have we got the ones we have playing to the top of there game no .

{Ed001's Note - City bought 3 fullbacks mate - Walker, Mendy and Danilo.}

True, not a big fan of danilo to be honest .

What do you make of city .
Sterling and sane out wide both playing well
A cm 3 of Silva KDB fernadinho.
Back 4 (most the time ) with stones delph otamendi.

Will sound nuts this but I'm not 100% sure aguero is the right striker . great player but I can see pep changing him with some one like Sanchez, bit more pace and work rate.

{Ed001's Note - City are ok but no one has tried to get at them other than Liverpool this season. Until the sending off they were wobbling badly at the back but the final result has skewed things in people's minds making them look unbeatable. They are very beatable and there will come a game when their forwards have an off day and De Bruyne doesn't rescue them. That is when we will find out what they are truly made of. Personally I think they showed against West Brom that they are still have the same problems defensively. Pep's teams always fade and Xmas will stretch them physically.

As for Aguero, I think he is right for any team, when you have someone like him you adapt to get the best out of him. Pep has other ideas and has been looking to push him out since the day he arrived. Big mistake if you ask me.}

06 Nov 2017 08:44:46
I like aguero great player, but got to say I think Sanchez could be a better fit with how city play .
Wouldn't be surprised to see that happen .
I don't think city look that beatable at the moment not compared to the other teams out there .
Hopefully there form drops off.

Mata is limited due to his lack of pace and defensively gets bullied against the bigger guys in big games with everyone now days having some serious big athletic guys in midfield. Carrick has been injured and also defensively lack the pace and can be exposed and miki as you saw struggles mightily against mobile midfields defensively.

In truth we have matic, pogba, herrera and fellaini. Pogba and fellaini have been out and for me you need better options to choose from as a manager if a pogba or Matic are injured. The alternatives fill the team sheet but too far off a drop in performance against top opposition.

I think Fellaini makes a huge difference given how we play and we were so much more dangerous the last 15 minutes and almost stole a point.

People like to see us compete with the likes of Barcelona and Madrid. if you want that you need some better options in midfield.

Every game we play poorly its our midfield that gets beaten up by the the other side. I think playing with 2 mids works when pogba/ matic and to some extend fellaini/ matic is there but otherwise the other guys are a compromised forced on the manager.
