Shoot me down as much as you like, in January and maybe Summer we do not need a RW, LB or St. We need to spend any cash we have on a world class number 10 and another CB.

How can anyone watch us play over the last six years and not think we need a right winger?

We attack only down one side of the football pitch and all of our first choice front three want to play left wing.

Add to that our first choice right back is a gun defender but offers little going forwards.

Right wing should be our top priority in the transfer window, purely just to stop up being so lopsided when attacking.

City and liverpool don't only play with sterling and mane and ignore the other side of the football pitch. We should probably follow their lead and use the whole football pitch. It is there for a reason.

15 Dec 2019 19:10:21
DSG, do you not watch James.

15 Dec 2019 21:23:15
Yes i do but he is primarily a left winger being played out of position.

16 Dec 2019 04:18:44
Agree with DSG. We need another option in RW in addition to DJ.
At the moment, I feel we are over playing him.

16 Dec 2019 04:47:44
RW is not an immediate concern as even if we get someone to deliver dangerous crosses into the box, neither of Rashford/ Martial are alert enough to make the runs to make it count.

We really need a creative midfielder who can make those clever passes to open up well organized defenses, who is also willing to make those timed runs into the box and also capable of scoring goals from anywhere in the final third. Also a striker who anticipates and is alive to the balls coming into the box and is clinical to finish any given chance.

RW, CB, LB and another DM/ CM can wait till summer. In an ideal situation another CM would add more depth to the squad.

16 Dec 2019 05:29:18
After yesterdays game i hope you would have changed your mind Cantona, Shaw is an average defender and even worse when it comes to providing anything going forward. Martial again is inconsistent with his performances so an experienced striker is definitely needed.

15 Dec 2019 17:32:10
OGS saying that Erling Haaland has made a decision about his future.

I think we need someone like him who can smell goals and get to end of crosses. He is a big physical presence as well.

Him along with Greenwood will probably sort out the CF position for many years.

15 Dec 2019 18:39:16
We also need experienced players aswell.

15 Dec 2019 23:28:13
I agree Not so mad hatter.

15 Dec 2019 09:13:00
We need the fast passing tempo today and complete commitment. This issue with defensive teams can be addressed if we just speed up our play and the slow side way passing. Our front men need lots of movement and to take players on. Confidence is high now but we must start quickly.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Dec 2019 11:33:00
Agreed, we need to start fast and go at them. The games we have struggled in are when we have been quite passive, Ole needs to get them fired up as we have a great run of games coming up.

15 Dec 2019 03:15:19
Just saw the stat.

Greenwood has more goals than some of the big signings we have had in recent years,

Sanchez 5
Depay 5
Falcao 4
Di Maria 3

Incredible, wish the kid keeps on developing and becomes the player we all wish him to become.

Agree4 Disagree0

15 Dec 2019 09:50:53
Every one of those signings was a disaster in one way or another. Sanchez in particular turned out to be probably the worst signing we have ever made.

15 Dec 2019 12:44:36
aj you forgot pogba.

15 Dec 2019 16:25:47
So if the rumours are true and we are going for Haaland, can u see us getting rid of Tony Greenwood is a better striker and why have three number 9's when Rash can play there as well?

16 Dec 2019 07:26:38
Greenwood has more goals than Messi from Open play, let that sink in :P.

14 Dec 2019 17:11:36
If we win tomorrow, granted that's a big if with us when playing against rubbish opposition, we will be within 2 points of 4th. That's some serous progress considering not too long ago there were comments touting us being in a relegation battle by Christmas.

If Ole can find a way to en ale us to unlock packed defences and start beating the more defensive teams, we'll start looking like a team on the up.

Granted I've been one to moan and criticise Ole, but if he can get us competing with what is a very young team and playing the kind of exciting football we've seen lately, I'll have been proved Completley wrong and be dam happy about it.

{Ed025's Note - rubbish opposition you say D?, football is a funny game mate and has a nasty habit of biting you on the arse...i really hope so..

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Dec 2019 17:24:08
Poor choice of adjective mate, I assume you meant ‘not one of the top 6’. I also posted the importance of tomorrow in closing the gap and maintaining momentum.

14 Dec 2019 17:33:10
Ed their 15th with negative 9 gd. I'm afraid that's in the bracket of pretty rubbish.

But we suck at football pretty frequently, so regardless of Everton's poor form we certainly still have it in us to walk away without any points.

{Ed025's Note - being an evertonian D...i really hope so mate.. :)

14 Dec 2019 18:58:12
I think the players will be up for it with Duncan in charge and you just beta Chelsea so I don't think it would be that big a surprise if you get something out of it.

{Ed025's Note - a draw would do me nicely D..

14 Dec 2019 19:11:39
Only 3 points is acceptable for us imo. We need them points and have a point to prove re teams outside of top 6. I'm hoping we see greenwood leading the line and try martial behind but doubt it'll happen.

15 Dec 2019 00:14:09
It’s these kind of posts that really do show a lack a class!
United are my team, but I love football.
I really went off the atmosphere inside old Trafford some 10-15 years ago, as there wasn’t any. I’d go to plenty of matches, Wednesday, Leeds, Barnsley and Everton.
None of these clubs are rubbish fella, Their fans have a passion and love for their clubs.
I’m glad ironically that old Trafford has in what you could term the lean 6yrs since Fergie left, has a great atmosphere and gone are the trophy hunting supporters.
As United fans we didn’t realise we had it do good, until it had.
I love the banter, beer, misses, debates and watching teams grow. I don’t miss, the almost idiotic ‘we should be top 3’ vitriol. You get the points you deserve, players you deserve etc. We are at the moment at best 4th, at worst mid table.
Everton are not a rubbish club, they like us have hell of an history. Local clubs outside the premiership are dying but they are not rubbish, as you say.

15 Dec 2019 07:53:12
Totally agree davegedge.
Disrespectful and arrogance in a wrong way by using such words.

15 Dec 2019 08:11:15
Oh my word, you guys a little touchy. I used the word rubbish, it's hardly that insulting or offencive. If you've let in 9 more goals than you've scored and are 2 points off a relegation position then I think rubbish is entirely reasonable to describe your performances and not particular insulting.

If any Everton fans are offended then I'm sorry. Your club isn't rubbish, but your results certainly are. And if you read my posts on that thread and think it's arrogance then I think you're choosing to see what you want to see.

{Ed025's Note - i get what you mean D and to be honest i was not insulted, we are not very good this season but nobody likes to hear that when its your club, for me its just a bit of banter mate and i gave united a bit of stick when they were in a bit of a slump. dont take it personally...all is fair in love and football.. :)

15 Dec 2019 14:48:33
Tbf they didn't look rubbish in that first half.

{Ed025's Note - we were the best of a poor bunch there i think DSG..

14 Dec 2019 17:03:03
I've been a big critic of VAR. It's done us a favour today! Bournmouth's goal at Chelsea was flagged offside, and was a tight goal line decision. No way would that goal get given without the technology.

Big game tomorrow, win and the table will look a lot friendlier than a couple of weeks ago. And Wolves play Spurs, so more dropped points from the teams below us.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Dec 2019 19:37:46
Win our next 2 league games and we will be top 4, we play before chelsea next week. Big opportunity.

14 Dec 2019 14:41:33
Just realised that we are the only team to take any points off Liverpool this season. That's scarey 😂.

Linders has took a lit of stick but looks like the lad has had a lit going on . There only human.

Hope things improve for him on those personal issues.
