Just to put last night into perspective ; how many of that PSG team would you swap player for player with the team we put out?

I'd say all of them bar Buffon for DDG.

It just highlighted that we have a Frankestein squad with little depth of quality, plus a manager who is inexperienced at the top level.

Agree3 Disagree7

Really? You’d swap,

Bernat for Shaw
Draxler for Pogba
Alves for Lingard
Di Maria for Martial.

13 Feb 2019 15:40:00
Silva/ Marquinhos for Bailly and Mbappe for Mata/ Sanchez, Rest i am good.

Young will be gradually replaced by Dalot and Shaw has been doing decent.

As for yesterday they figured out one thing " STOP POGBA STOP UTD"

13 Feb 2019 17:22:49
Becks your wouldn’t take Veratti then no? Come on.

13 Feb 2019 17:24:54
DDG, Alves, Lindelof, Marquinhos, Shaw, Verratti, Herrera, Lingard, Mbappe, Rashford, Martial

Would be my team. With a bench of Buffon, Dalot, T. Silva, Pogba, Draxler, Di Maria and Lukaku

From the players available last night. So that's 7 United players and 4 PSG players in my ideal 11.

However, that's 8 PSG to 10 United when you consider the squad of 18. WHich is much closer.

Stand-United, Verratti is often criticized for his unhealthy lifestyle and his injury record is of some concern. He has played 25+ games just once in his last 4 seasons.

13 Feb 2019 17:56:54
Shappy their manager didn't even play alves rb last night. The lad he did play did not give martial or sanchez a kick so psg's 3rd choice rb makes your combined team?
Mbappe is a Better player than rashford currently
Di maria is currently better than martial imo and has achieved a lot more
Bernat is better than shaw. Silva and kempeppe better than lindelof currently
For me
Kheere rb last night crap spelling

Marquinos Veratti pogba

Rash mbappe di maria

Jessie martial herrera matic lindelof all make the bench for me

Neymar would replace rash when fit in that team imo.

13 Feb 2019 17:59:08
Id swap Bernat shaw in a heartbeat Danny.
While di maria is better than martial currently i would not swap them. Nor would i swap the other 2 you mentioned.

13 Feb 2019 18:08:15
not alves fan really but all the rest agree with team wise- bench, I wouldn't let di maria play keepy upp in aldi car park would rather have fellaini drafted back .

not much change out of a billion there shappy ;)

Ken Alves played further forward last night because of the lack of options in attack for PSG rather than because of how Tuchel feels about Alves as a RB.

There is a case for many of the PSG squad over the United counter parts. I didn't put Pogba in which statistically has been our best player. So an argument could be made for him over Verratti, Herrera or Lingard to be honest.

However, I picked on who would best suit how I would want to play and on balancing out that side rather than on simply who could be considered the best player. Which is so subjective it makes it practically impossible to get any kind of agreement.

Alves has played rb twice this season shaps that's how the manager fells about him as a rb.
It is all about opinions but your team stinks of bias or maybe you were not watching last night or all season😂.

14 Feb 2019 00:27:39
They bossed us all over the park last night. You can only judge players against each other when they play in direct opposition. On the
night every single PSG was better than his Utd counterpart. That tells me they are the better players.

For example it's why in my opinion Pogba still isn't that good. Bossing it against Fulham is one thing, pulling your team through a really tough European tie is quite another and he is unable to step up.

Utd are miles behind the top teams in Europe. At least we are better to watch now though its going to take a huge transition for us to start challenging again.

14 Feb 2019 00:46:00
The one thing jose was right about was that our squad is miles short.
Nobody will argue against that he had to be fired and nobody will argue that the football was dire to watch. Nobody will argue that we have not spent plenty of cash. But anybody that argues that we have a squad capable of competing to win the cl or epl is just in complete denial.

I think ole has done a terrific job. With what he has. Jose got this lot to 2nd In the league albeit in a crap manner. But until there is some significant personnel change on the playing style we will have more seville and psg results in europe.

14 Feb 2019 08:40:44
Agreed Ken. We have the resources but we all know we need a vision/ strategy and the right dof and manager to implement it over the long term.

Ole has done well and has got the most out of what he has to work with, although I agree with DGS that he didn't cope well with the injuries on Tuesday.

PSG was a good benchmark and now we see just how much change is required, even in areas such as full back and attack where even a few weeks ago we might have thought we were pretty sorted.

At least we are having fun again and I'm really looking forward to the games against City, Chelsea and the scousers.
