I'm liking ETH's approach. We know that the Dutch can be perceived as 'direct', but I like it. I hope he is true to his word and picks players who impress irrespective of age or experience.

I see Rashford says the players are a lot fitter under ETH; let that sink in, our players were not fit enough. We knew this because we saw them lumbering around the pitch but how on Earth did that happen?

A new k3ft back, a new CB, a new CM, and we are still trying the somewhat futile attempt to secure FDJ. Add in improved fitness, clear standards, proper coaching, an actual plan, and we may hopefully see something that brings some joy and not depair.

And finally Esther (one for the oldies), let's sort the Ronaldo situation out, personally I'd prefer him to go but let's not drag it out.

What new cm are you talking about AJH? Last I knew we had not signed anyone in cm. Eriksen still hasn't signed and I don't think he will be playing cm. It'll be wide or no10.

14 Jul 2022 11:15:24
Ronaldo needs to go, the press from the front capitulates if he plays and that is unacceptable. Even martial seems to be on board with it (for now) so he either plays and keeps working or we get someone in that will. Ronaldo staying puts us back a year imo.

14 Jul 2022 11:26:46
I meant Eriksen, interested to see where he fits in.

I'm also interested to see is and where ETH plays DVDB.

14 Jul 2022 12:52:36
Fdj will also be a new midfielder imo. I think they will get this over the line.
Really important for the manager.
Dvdb ericksen fdj Fred mctom Bruno fighting for 3 spots in all likelihood backed up by a few youth prospects.
Still looks a bit light on aggression in midfield but it depends on our approach I think.

14 Jul 2022 12:58:49
I think DVDB will play the same number of games he played last season. He isn’t suddenly going to be good enough for the premier league no matter who his manager is. He’s weak, doesn’t create any chances and looks lost when played deeper. If ETH gets anything out of him he’s a genius.

14 Jul 2022 12:59:33
It's been obvious for years that Ole's standards in terms of competing was non existent. That bleeds through to training and over time you'll see a dip in everything including sharpness and fitness.

He rewarded mediocrity while placing no expectations on the team. It seems like the squad have already bought into Ten Hags methods in training. So much of football is mental. If you set the expectations high then you meet them or leave.

Early sings are positive AJH which is music to all our ears.

14 Jul 2022 13:14:46
Completely agree with you GDS2. He looks completely lost, the game just passes him.
I think he will be a squad player, and mainly be used as a substitute.

14 Jul 2022 12:37:58
Think Eriksen will be a regular starter in as part of a midfield 3 - great player.

Best transfer will be Martinez - more important than FDJ. He can bring it out from the back, distribute accurately to both wings (look at what VVD for Liverpool) rather than hoofing it hopefully to the front and losing it straight away.

Plus he can play CDM, which is where I think he’ll play for us for the first year, then back to CB if we can then bring Rice in to play as CDM.

Roonbest, CR7 is going nowhere. We've got another season of him I imagine. Enjoy it!

14 Jul 2022 14:04:26
Spenno he will get goals I'm sure but it will be at the cost of the team I fear . 1 player not pressing is enough for it to fall apart unfortunately.

14 Jul 2022 14:41:46
Strangely I think dvdb will have a better season and think he may do well. I have to be honest and say this is just a gut feeling and he has not been great at utd or Everton but imo he was good for ajax.
I just have a feeling once the whole side get used to quick passing and creating triangles this may benefit him by suiting his game and help his performances.

I hope I am right as it would mean he played well for our team but I could just as easily be wrong.

14 Jul 2022 15:25:37
Donny is a good player who hasn't got any sort of run in this United team. Hopefully with a new set up, we will see more of him.

As Ten Hag said himself, United were committing a mortal sin with their treatment of DVB.

It won't take a genius to get something from DVB, just not someone like Ole.

14 Jul 2022 15:31:09
We bought DvdB and Bruno, they both played in the same position at their respective clubs. We played Bruno as a 10 meaning DvdB was shoehorned in at 8, not his best position. He played with Tadic as a false nine, making runs into the box when Tadic dropped back playing intricate passes thus why his goal and assist numbers were good. Playing in a system he knows with a coach who trust him and knows his attributes I’m sure will mean DvdB will have a much better time of it this season.

14 Jul 2022 17:05:45
Unfortunately, I suspect Ronaldo will drag out.

There doesn’t seem to be much interest in him at present, but as we get closer to the transfer deadline, he might seem an attractive option to a side struggling for goals.

{Ed0666's Note - Al Nassr FC maybe?

Why would you go to a Saudi Arabian club for 2 years for £210 million in wages?

14 Jul 2022 18:17:32
Cos he loves the club Oakbark.

14 Jul 2022 19:26:37
What’s with all these acronyms? It takes me half an hour to work out who the contributor is talking about. Can we not use their name or nickname?

15 Jul 2022 01:38:20
DVDB is Derek Van Dunkle Burger obviously, that’s all you really need to know.

15 Jul 2022 09:35:45
And Shaw is, I ate Derek van dunkel burger.

EtH is Eventually Time Heals

Fred is Frustrating Excellence Equally Distributed.

15 Jul 2022 16:23:21
That would be the only thing Fred has ever distributed.

15 Jul 2022 17:35:41
What was that? How did I spell Fred?!

I was thinking Fantastic Rubbish (in) Equal Distribution and type out that nonsense!
