Hi Guys,

I'm a long time lurker, rare poster. Been here since almost 10 years.

We constantly hear the term "United Quality" or rather, "Not United Quality". So, I thought I'd ask the forum what we mean by United Quality?

My only point being that it's a squad game and everyone will obviously never be the same quality and you need the Park's, O'Shea's and Fletcher's as much as the Cristiano's, Giggs' and Cantona's. So should there be a minimum threshold or a role specific measure of "United Quality"

Good post, it's a team game.

Fair point Japs, it's just a throwaway phrase really, isn't it. There is no real way of measuring 'quality', it's it's very subjective and down to personal opinion. And let's face it, whatever 'United quality' is, it seems to have gone downhill in recent seasons.

It’s a good question, for me it’s less about being United quality but being a United player. Fellaini for all his skills and attributes was not a United player. I can’t articulate why I feel that way but he just wasn’t the right fit for our club. Lovely bloke, gave his all, but not right for us. Sometimes it’s abIlity, sometimes style, sometimes attitude. I guess we all have a slightly different view of what it means.

I think Ole described it best in his recent interview and Fergie used a few of these phrases often, take ownership, have hunger and desire to win, play without fear, are they for and going to run themselves into the ground for the club and teammates, it’s more about a personality type as much as it is a skillset to be united quality imo.

Good post Japs,

I think its a team game but you also need top class players as its got a lot more money and owners from all around the world.

City for e.g have 2 top class players for most of their players.

Liverpool are doing really well but not all their players are top class apart from their first team but its their attitude towards winning and Klopp being a top manager to get the best out of them and he has been backed by their owners.

I think having the right attitude is just as as important as being a top player. If you don't have the right attitude you will turn into a Pigba/ Martial type of player no matter how much talent you have.

Just read the quotes from McTominay yesterday. Its the attitude, the desire coupled with talent.

Fellaini is a great example of the contrast. Technically no he wasn't United quality. But attitude wise he was more of a United player than some still here.

For me its about how you apply yourself in training and matches.
Not everyone is a messi a Ronaldo or even a scholes or rio.
But good examples are neville fletch o shea. They tried to be as good as they could be. No over inflated ego. They made the most of their opportunity and worked hard to maintain it.
That for me is united quality.
Making the most of what you have. Bringing that to the team and doing it or trying to do it every week .
Its not about the flicks or tricks or the odd moment its about applying yourself the united way.

Well if you want to an example of what is not the United way, just look at that utter shambles today. Not one player played with any desire or passion. I can’t quite believe what I just witnessed to be quite honest.
