Rashford misses a sitter and then scores a great goal, he’s still patchy but I think he can nail that position down for years to come. There’s a view that he misses too many chances so I had a quick look at the top scorers on the Beeb’s website. It shows how many goals the top scores have but is also shows you the percentage of shots on target, and it makes interesting reading. Rashford manages to get 68% of his shots on target, which is more than Kane (63%), Aguero (47%), Aubameyang (54%), and just about higher than Salah (67%) . Hazard is top with 77% followed by Stirling on 76%, which I’m sure will surprise some

Only Giggs made 100 appearances at a younger age, he’s a special talent who we need to nurture and develop.

And, just read further down the list, Lukaku is at 78% and Martial at 76%, so basically if we can create chances then we usually score. It kind of reinforces the issue that we need a little more creativity to give our productive forwards more chances,

AJH he’s definitely the way forward. I’d love to see him spending as much time as possible with the baby faced assassin. Rash has the potential to go on to be a United great.

03 Feb 2019 16:53:07
Tony, that's a nice stat. However, is there a further drill down of that stat as to how many of those 68% go in the back of the net? That would be interesting. Shots on target mean for nought unless they go in. Rashford gets too many straight in the goal keeper hands or mirubbishs them for my liking.

I think the header was more of a Rom sitter than a rashford sitter. The goal was what Rash is all about. He's ready and just needs to play. He has loads to work on, but that should be exciting, not worrying.

Shan i'm not sure why you are not happy.
8 wins in 9 games is not shabby in fact its better than any other team has achieved in the last 9 games.
We won't play flee flowing possesion football and control games more often than not. Even in games like today and v burnley where we have lots of possession we look scrappy because we don't have the right balance to our team and squad.
We need better players in a few positions but until then ole has found a winning formula.
As basil fawlty said 'dont look out a Torquay hotel window and be disapointed with the view of Torquay ' don't expect to see the hanging gardens of Babylon.
When you watch this current united squad don't expect to see error free football. But at least they are trying now and looking to attack.
Rashford is our top scorer and is doing fine imo.

Ken, i am happy. don't get me wrong. I am happy with the result. I am a results oriented person. But i am failing to see what everyone is seeing with respect to performances. Aftee the first 3 games and first half vs spurs, rest have been the same for what our previous manager was sacked.

03 Feb 2019 17:42:20
Of course we have we have the same bunch of bang average players in many positions.
It wasnt joses fault the football they played was crap. It was his fault that they were not trying their best and were all miserable confused and lethargic
But ole has them winning. Sure they might come u stuck on occasions and their technical ability is limited but they are trying.
The substitutions are now largely attacking and the mindset is better.

03 Feb 2019 17:54:52
For someone who claims they're a results orientated person, you don't half go on about not being entertained.

03 Feb 2019 18:00:42
Shan for someone who is “happy, don’t get me wrong” you’re doing a great impression of a misery guts mate.

Shan still caught up on 'rashford is crap'.

I'm a results orientated person but 9 wins are not enough.

Jose got sacked because he was miserable and played terrible football. It's only acceptable when the team are winning and we weren't doing that. So rubbish football plus bad results = sacking.

Ole, so far has us creating more, scoring more, conceding less and winning games. You okay Shan?

03 Feb 2019 19:37:42
Better than most i believe. I still have my head in the right place. I think i need a bit of a time off from this place. See you guys. i will be back when i find the same definition of entertainment as you all.

As to why i don't like what i am seeing is more probably by what i see at the top of the table rather than where we are or what we are doing. Its just that effect to know that it just might be their year.

03 Feb 2019 19:51:02
Stat's before the game today.

During Solskjaer’s tenure, no side has won more points (19), scored more Premier League goals (19), had more shots (121), created more chances (87) or conceded fewer goals (6) than Manchester United.

You must lead a very demanding life shan if you haven't found entertainment in that.

04 Feb 2019 06:28:36
Jose in his 2 and a half year tenure never had a clear playing style.
The starting 11 and back 4 were changing frequently.

On the other hand, Ole has shown glimpses of his vision in such a short span. The team is playing higher up the pitch, there is more intensity, better width from the fullbacks etc, .
He has the players on his side as well. They seem to give everything on the pitch.

65% of stats are made up 73% of the time.

{Ed025's Note - love it eric..
