Ok game. Bailly, lindelof, shaw, pereira and ddg were brilliant. Fred looks like a better version of Herrera just needs time to settle, pogba was decent. Rashford was rubbish and Sanchez is just a grossly overpaid ji sung park.

Agree with that assessment. Thought Sanchez was very poor but played some nice balls. Obviously he is a world class player though CSM and I expect him to have a very good season. We need to shift him to the right and use his ability to cross the ball. The biggest bonus for me was the togetherness of the team after shaw scored. Clearly he is a popular member of the squad and there is a good team spirit within the squad. Great to see Jose celebrating his goal today and praising him near the end and before the match. Me thinks that all this negativity from Jose has been a way to create a siege mentality, them against us. The players and manager are clearly on the same page and with a few tweaks and consistency and I think we will have a good season. Just need to go for the kill when we have gone a goal up as opposed to inviting pressure on ourselves. I love the look of the midfield combinations and they all compliment each other very well. Pogba is a die a big season and I can see him having a huge season. Great to see united back playing, even if the football is not always entertaining.

Yeah I agree as well.

Got to wonder why Martial wasn't starting up top if Rashford was meant to be so unfit?

Agreed with Jose's press conference. From the looks of Martial's face when Pogba came off and how many times Jose kept bringing it back to wishing he could bring Martial on in the interview, makes me think he promised him a game and reneged - won't be going down well I'm sure.

One key thing. He kept saying the lads were not ready etc, but the majority had a full pre-season, we need to knock these International trips on the head and get back to focusing on pre-season being about getting ready, not handicapping it. Delighted for Shaw, Pereira played well, loved Fred's energy and passion, something we desperately lack (the football part will come) . Darmian is a waste of space, can't believe the regression in him since signing.

Not often I agree with you but generally I did there. The owners are never going to stop raking money in from foreign trips, if there was a winter break I wouldn’t put it past them to organise a money spinning friendly.

I thought Lindelof had a very calm effective game and prefer the combo of Baily and him than Smalling and Jones.

People may not agree but I think the owners lack of support seemed to have fired Mourinho up a bit, I may be wrong but I sense a determination to show them. We shall see, what I saw of him last night was not third season syndrome.

Very pleased for Shaw who was so excited when interviewed post match.

We will know more when we play away but our right side looked cumbersome Darmian and Mata, but Fred looks a good addition.

I think the owners have got it 100% right by sticking to there guns and looking to buy players that can be developed .
Best way to build a team.

I agree jred. Gary Neville said the same. However, like many of us, we question who is making the footballing decisions upstairs.

And i also feel we did the right thing in not paying over odds. Rod off his own back ed Woodward but at least now it looks as though he will not pay over the odds especially for a player in their late 20s/ 30s.

11 Aug 2018 11:06:29
Maybe but I still think we lack on the right side.

11 Aug 2018 11:48:34
Jred - I agree with the logic but then why employ Jose when everybody knows that is not how he manages. A few bad results and we could find ourselves in the middle of a meltdown between Jose and the board.
It seems an odd decision to give Jose a new contract and then not support him in the transfer window when there had clearly been a discussion about what Jose's plans were.

11 Aug 2018 12:50:56
It doesn't mean he can't manage like that .
He will of had little say in transfers at both Madrid and inter .
