Great comeback yesterday's game.
Whilst we can all see that Sanchez worked his butt off and scored and my pick of MOTM, I feel Pogba deserves mention as he made that great and fantastic assist for Sanchez's goal. In fact I think Pogba really played well and if he is able not to be distracted he can become one of the legend in time to come. He will probably outlive Jose in ManUtd.
Back to Sanchez. His efforts need to be mentioned especially when he ran back to cover the defense. That said the defense needs to be seriously looked at. We can be seriously punished against more aggressive and pacey teams. No names to mention but I'm sure we all have a few in mind.
We have a potent attack and the selection depends sometimes on who we play against. Rash injects pace but lack in shooting and decisive actions. This attack team can work well together and Jose needs to realize that. I believe Jose will involve less defensive responsibilities from attack team once the defense is fully built and trusted.
We are somewhat ok with midfield but may need one or a couple more building the team around Pogba. Pogba is not slow but only look so as the way I saw that when he ran his strides is big and outrun most. BUT you would've notice that he is not the best defensive midfielder.
All in all I think we are still WIP and needs 3 to 4 signings max and we should be better than good.
Right now just happy we are in the final and a chance of silverware. Hopefully we win and close the season to what I would consider above average but not great. Spoilt as we are to the glory and dominant days but trying to be positive at least we are moving up.
Sorry long post.

I thought the defense played well yesterday done what was asked of them .
Spurs done well in midfield but the backline was solid yesterday, really don't know what people's problem is some times.

Jred, Son had the beating of Valencia literally every time. Spurs goal was down to Young getting caught up far up the pitch, and that was without spurs actually playing with a right winger. We need 2 full backs, possibly 3. Fabinho would be awesome for both midfield and right back, and a new left back, hopefully an experienced one like Rose, but would also like Sessegnon.

22 Apr 2018 07:59:31
Jred no problem here but I felt we could’ve been punished a couple of time. Son was so quick and Ericksen was solid. Lucky we were saved by upright.
There is no doubt we played well (how could we not if we won? ) . But I’m saying we had luck with us but we need to tweak a bit to be solid next season.
Really don’t understand why people so sensitive some times.

22 Apr 2018 08:06:28
Son played well for the first 15 minutes and that was it really .
Not sure how you can blame young for the first goal? Young attacks some one else steps in its then up to them to deal with it .
Sessengon hasn't played lb for months now and his future is further up the pitch

Good example how some players carry the can for everything tho .

Oh I wasn’t blaming anyone mate.
All I am saying is we can do better. Mind you Spurs are a good team. Just a little short of finishing touch.
As I said we played well and dug in. No panic and I like it. Seeing Pogba putting in effort and Sanchez scoring has me all very happy.
As I said we need to tweak a little more to come up with a solid team to challenge the title next season. This season is done and hopefully we can cap it off with the FA Cup. I can’t ask for more.
We have work to do for next season and Jose will be measured if the board supports him with the signings. We are in track really.

22 Apr 2018 08:28:52
For whichever position, looks like Sessegnon is going to be great. The CBs were great, best I've seen this season. The full backs were ineffective esp in attack. I'd be happy if we only added full backs and one midfielder.

22 Apr 2018 08:46:19
I think we played well for the team we have. Jose made reasonable good selection and the team delivered. No one is to blame for the goal imho.
But I agree with a couple or few more key signings would really make our team all round solid.
Hopefully with a stronger defense Jose will then get the team to play attacking football and also challenge the title next season. I am very hopeful.

22 Apr 2018 09:04:19
666 I agree. We seem to be well on our way to recovery from the post Fergie slump. The football may not always be easy to the eye but the progress is undeniable.

22 Apr 2018 09:49:59
I thought we were all over the place defensively. Spurs created a lot of chances in the first 25mins and the game could've been out of sight. Ddg was helpless on a couple of occassions but luckily the ball just missed on one occassion and hit the post on another. Every time Eriksson got the ball, i was sh. tting myself. Son had the beating of Valencia.
For a team that's supposed to be organized defensively, we look completely shambolic. It all stems from the attackers (apart from Sanchez) and midfielders giving too much time to the opposition, so our defense is always under pressure.

AAA agreed and I’m not defending the team blindly but we were very lucky albeit we did not do that badly in 2H. There were a couple of ref decisions but lucky Jose behaved himself unlike Klopp else he would’ve been heavily penalized. I magazine how far he has to walk up the stairs to be in the stand 🤣.
But yes we still need a few signings to bolster the team.

22 Apr 2018 10:32:52
The full back play was Bad, anyway not their fault their wingers.
Young is solid enough at times but can't be our fullback next season.
They would be ok as back up.

22 Apr 2018 10:33:02
Smalling and Jones were excellent, Valencia was a bit shaky at times and young went walkabout for their goal. Smalling really was super.

22 Apr 2018 10:35:11
Pogba was caught napping for Tottenham's goal in all honesty but it is pretty obvious we need two top quality full backs. That plus a quality midfielder, this team will look and perform very differently.
Sessegnon is a good player but he's no full back, he's similar to how Bale started. He has a real knack for popping up in the right place at the right time though.
