So ole says we need a Bryan Robson. If only, there is no midfielder out there fit to lace captain marvels boots. Best midfielder I've seen at old trafford.

I am sure everyone on here who had a pleasure of watching him will agree with you blackpool red.

But i think because midfield roles are much more defined in modern football, looking for a bryan robson or a roy keane is a red herring.

Who is the all action bryan robson type in the city team or the liverpool team or in Barcelona or reals team?

We would probably be much better off trying to be realistic and find the new michael carrick, someone mobile and intelligent enough to screen the back 4 and sit deep and dictate play than look for a new bryan robson.

I took a close look at Jamie Shackleton at Leeds. Now I'm not a scout by any stretch of the imagination. But I know a player that gives 100% every second of every game when I see one. I hope somebody in red has/ is running the rule over him. If you're watching the Leeds game have a look I'd be interested in your opinion. 👍.

Living the past. Sentimental. Sack him now.

My favourite ever player for the club.
There is still room in any formation for that box to box player. Although as you say the role has changed and more technique than blood sweat and tears.
That screening player you speak of. The goal scoring box to box midfielder and the veey offence minded playmaker are the ideal combination.

Longstaff / matic
Fernandes / mctom
Pogba/ fred

If pogba wants to stay and let his football do the talking i'd be delighted if they were our options going into next season. Tough to get both those deals plus maguire over the line. Plus deal with the possible exits of lukaku darmian rojo.
Lots of work still to do on the squad but that midfield 6 plus garner should see us through the season in better shape than last season.

Robson was the reason I chose to support United when I was very young.

very good piece on sky about longstaff. Well worth a read, you can see why solskjaer would want him. Not comparing him to Bryan Robson, but he might be worth the money if he keeps going the way he is.

Agreed penfold. if we get longstaff, a midfield of him and mctominay will have a lot of heart and effort. need a spark of creativity (pogba / fernandes ) with them and we have the makings of a solid midfield.

{Ed002's Note - Longstaff's heart is in the NE.}

16 Jul 2019 11:11:24
I agree Penfold. We should go for him no question.

16 Jul 2019 11:31:26
But his bank account might be in the northwest soon ed 😂.

16 Jul 2019 11:47:59
do you think he’d stay in newcastle regardless Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - No, what I said was in reply to a rather flakey comment.}

16 Jul 2019 15:04:15
Truth be told by team would be improved by having a midfielder like Bryan Robson.

** any.
