There is a rumour coming out of Spain saying that United are insisting on getting Kronos if Pogba moves to Madrid.
Not a bad idea if true.

{Ed002's Note - Can Kronos adapt from a career in Science Fiction movies to being a footballer?}

Palace 4-0 down an Wolves 3-0 at half time. Either we're worse than though or some times try more in some games than others.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2019 17:28:24
Or that isn’t how football works at all.

14 Sep 2019 17:57:01
By that logic, because we hammered Chelsea, we're miles above Wolves.

14 Sep 2019 18:31:06
Maybe that's footy.

14 Sep 2019 19:24:30
We're good when teams go toe to toe with us but struggle with teams that dig in. We'll do well against those that think they are better than us but struggle against the bottom teams as we have no way of breaking them down.

I can't be the only person that sees this.

14 Sep 2019 20:46:57
TB,

I agree with that, think it’s becoming apparent. If we can find a way to get past some of the lower teams who dig in we will have a good season.

14 Sep 2019 21:57:44
Hopefully, next summer, we invest in a couple of players who can unlock tight defenses then we should be looking good.

I like the direction we're heading.

13 Sep 2019 11:04:32
With all injuries and doubts, with a very short squad, we are in deep trouble.

Let's see what happens tomorrow.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2019 12:57:21
Deep trouble? Still think we will have 11 internationals out there.

14 Sep 2019 11:40:10
If he plays the likes of Greenwood and Gomes, the crowd get behind them and we score first we have a chance of winning.

14 Sep 2019 17:28:41
What if he doesn’t play then and we score first?

14 Sep 2019 18:31:58
Gds we win .
Some will disappointed.

10 Sep 2019 16:14:24
What do people think to this team in 18 months
Henderson
Wan Bissaka
McGuire
Tuanzabe
Shaw or Brandon Williams
James Garner
Saul Niguez
Maddison
James
Sanchez
Greenwood

Mostly English core and would fight for the badge. don't want to hear too young and inexperienced.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Sep 2019 17:29:42
Sanchez?

{Ed047's Note - Sancho? 🤷‍♂️

10 Sep 2019 20:37:57
I put Sancho how dare predictive text put Sanchez.

10 Sep 2019 18:36:49
That's right ed. never thought of that. I think a lot will depend on if the 5 or 6 players there that have hardly kicked a ball in the epl are up too it.
I like the notion but tuanzebe brandon Williams garner sancho henderson greenwood have hardly kicked a ball in the epl.

11 Sep 2019 10:30:04
Saul Niguez would be quite a coup.

11 Sep 2019 15:48:57
blackpool red we are struggling with the team we have now.

cant see that team being any better than the current team.

12 Sep 2019 07:13:19
Potentially a top team.

09 Sep 2019 19:30:55
Strong rumours that DDG is going to sign the contract on offer from united.
It would be nice to end the uncertainty one way or the other.
Id like to see him get his head clear and return to his best form he has been below his own high standards for the past 12 months but hopefully if he signs and settles down again he will return to his best
Dean Henderson has had a good start to the season at SU so it will be interesting to see if we end up selling him. I think he is going to end up Englands no1 .

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Sep 2019 10:13:57
If you had the choice ken, would you stick with DDG or see Henderson be No.1 for next season.

Henderson looks the real deal.

10 Sep 2019 16:16:39
That's a really tough call angel.
I would rather keep ddg to be honest but the fact that I even had think before answering tells us how much ddg stock has fallen.

10 Sep 2019 19:22:38
Either way I'd be very happy. De gea, though hit a rough patch, is still top quality. Maybe signing a new deal settles the mind as he sometimes looks as though it is elsewhere.

10 Sep 2019 19:53:40
That's got to be the hope angel.
Of course we are judging him against his own impeccably high standards.
If he does not sign then Henderson looks like he could make the grade.
If he excels with SU this season he could well find himself as our No1.

08 Sep 2019 15:59:02
Grazi, grazi, grazi regazzi, mamma mia, forza ferrari, grazi grazi grazi.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Sep 2019 19:04:19
It was both boring and interesting at the same time. What on Earth was Vettel thinking, I really do think he will retire as his errors are be joking more and more regular and he getting his ass kickWd by his team mate.

08 Sep 2019 20:11:48
AJH he just looks to me as though he has lost interest. He needs to move I think, feel the love from another team. I think a move back to red bull and max the other way would be good for both.

08 Sep 2019 20:14:51
Tony has been on the vino rouge with me lol. Yeah, he needs a break, number 2 now basically to Charles, changing of the guard moment and fair play to Charles, defending well, got a bit dirty when needed, must be a fantastic feeling winning at monza with Ferrari, first time since 2010 too.
Just need max to go merc and oust lewis now.

08 Sep 2019 20:21:19
Why would max go and oust lewis, who is comfortably still the best driver in the pack.

08 Sep 2019 22:01:34
Change of the guard, max and charles the future, lewis is the best in huge part cz of the merc he drives tbf, easy to say comfortably the best while he sits in that car with a rear gunner all the time.
Kubica would be in a title fight in a merc.

09 Sep 2019 08:10:34
He puts himself in that position WRD. He hasn't got the best car but is winning the championship.

Merc would not get rid of the best driver on the track to 'change the guard'. Its madness.

Kubica? Put down the vino, you've clearly had too much.

09 Sep 2019 10:25:09
Haha, course he has the best car, ferrari have had advantage at Spa and Monza, other than that Merc have the best package overall.
I'm not a lewis fan and you can probably tell, you're right Lewis wouldn't want to team mate giving him a challenge either, personally want a change of guard at the top.
Vino, yes, way too much lol.
Can tell its international break when this is being talked about ha.

{Ed001's Note - Ferrari started the season with by far the best car, but they have thrown away their advantage by taking their development in the wrong direction and by being unable to understand the tyres. They also threw away a lot of chances by backing Vettel rather than Leclerc in the early stages and by bad strategy calls. Overall though, even Ferrari agree they had the best package and have made a mess of it, hence heads rolling.}

09 Sep 2019 14:37:57
Ed001 if you don't mind sharing my opinion. I think Ferrari had a better car in Testing only not in Aus. Better engine perhaps but Merc had a better overall package from Start of Season.

{Ed001's Note - not according to the teams themselves. Ferrari just couldn't get the tyres switched on.}

09 Sep 2019 17:57:23
Agree Pirelli has that tendency that they operate best in a very narrow window of temp. I think it hasn't come as a surprise that even Haas who took lots of parts from Ferrari are massively struggling in race trim. But overall i think they lack right amount of downforce and braking stability at slow and medium speed corners. You could see back of a Ferrari sliding on medium speed corners. The car lacks lot of balance and they have gone backwards from last year i believe.

10 Sep 2019 11:29:00
Ed001, what do you feel the future is for Seb Vettel?

{Ed001's Note - he wants to go back to Red Bull. I just can't see why they would want him, unless they lose Verstappen. It does look like his time at Ferrari is coming to an end, unless he is willing to accept being number 2, but that doesn't seem like him. He is coming into the veteran stage, so it could well be time for him to step back to being a number 2 but a 4 time world champion doesn't play second fiddle easily. Maybe the answer is dropping to one of Ferrari's two reserve teams? Alfa Romeo or Haas would surely love him as their lead driver?}

10 Sep 2019 19:32:52
He needs to retire, a 4 times world champion doesn’t want to be fighting in midfield, and the number of mistakes he is making mean he is becoming a liability.

I’m sure Hamilton wants to drive for Ferrari but he will be eyeing equalling Schumi’s 7 titles so may stick with a Mercedes. I’d love to see him up against Le Clerc in the Ferrari or up against Verstappen in the Mercedes. He doesn’t have many years left but I think he’d still beat both of them right now.

WRD, I know Hamilton isn’t the easiest man to like but like it or not, he’s one of the best.

10 Sep 2019 20:49:12
Stick Lewis in a Haas and we will see how he likes fighting it out for a point each week, the car helps him enormously be as good as he is.

Lewis has proven he does not like team mates getting the better of him without throwing a strop, think Rosberg, no way he would like Charles or Max for a teammate, is why he's happy with reargunner as a partner, no threat, prob in Bottas contract he's not allowed to challenge Lewis, wouod be good to see someone allowed to challenge him in the same top car and team tho.

10 Sep 2019 22:05:41
Rosberg managed to beat him but it took a superhuman effort and he had to retire straight after. He also had far better reliability, if Lewis’s car hadn’t given up on him a couple of times then Rosberg wouldn’t have won it. It’s very subjective, the car plays a huge part but to do it over such a long period, against world champions sometimes in faster cars, shows just how talented he is. He saw off Alonso in his first year and continues to dominate.

07 Sep 2019 23:12:51
Just read that Van Der Sat may be appointed director of football soon, anybody heard anything to dismiss or confirm this?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Sep 2019 02:29:45
Where was this reported LLV?

06 Sep 2019 11:51:57
Not the start to the season we were all hoping for eh?

I am struggling to stay optimistic about this season, we seem to have a manager who isn't a top tactician, a group of players who are OK but not good enough for a top 4 finish and people running the club who don't seem to share the same visions as the manager and fans.

Everyone of us can see that our midfield and attack is light and I wonder how we managed to finish this summer without strengthening this side, especially with several senior departures. It makes you wonder what the boards true feelings are going into this season, do they honestly think this squad is good enough?

You can look at City and confidently say their board and owners would have strengthened this team with the right players, instead we penny-pinched and missed out on some top talent available.

With Europa league soon coming up, our squad looks super weak and lacks depth to compete in all competitions. A few injuries to our strikers and a midfielder or two and we're going to look like a very weak prem team. Even at full strength we have struggled to beat Palace, Wolves and Southampton. Imagine how we'll be doing once the manager has less options available to him?

I honestly hope Solskjaer is given the time to restructure this side, but feel the results will go against him and we'll be back to square 1 again. Already fans and media are turning on him and it won't be long until Ed Woodward folds and gives in and sacks Ole.

Despite all this, I feel we need to focus our frustrations and anger at the club, not the manager. Solskjaer clearly isn't a top manager but he has the clubs best interests at heart and maybe the work he does today will not benefit him but will benefit the next Manchester United manager. Already we've seen a lot of departures which most fans cannot argue against, it's just a shame the club didn't try harder to bring in replacements immediately.

I'll support Solskjaer until his final day at the club but if nothing changes above him, I can't help but feel we'll just repeat all this again with a different manager.
