City have withdrawn their offer. Chelsea intersted.

Cant follow the figures though although I doubt any journo knows. The Indy saying Arsenal wanted Martial PLUS cash? and now its 30 million PLUS Miki? neither of those deals look good to me.


2.) 15 Jan 2018 22:54:54
I can't see Chelsea splashing the cash when there is an unknown with the manager. Probably going public to satisfy fans that they tried.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 02:04:16
Replacement for Hazard is my guess. Hopefully just BS, but if they are in the mix it will be a problem for us I think - these foreigners seem to love London, I doubt they spend much time partying, learning the history and shops you can find anywhere - it's just convenience and the 'image'.

I genuinely don't see the draw in London for a professional footballer over other major cities in the UK.

Di Marzio reporting that we have reached an agreement with Sanchez and his agents.

Than surely we have. that guy is special at news.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 14:13:10
That guy is specially wrong everytime he opens his mouth.

Incredible.


3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:29:19
Yeah sure he is mikon. What planet you living on. Has always been incredibly accurate. Most have some decent sources.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 10:31:48
Incredibly accurate? that's a stretch, sure he is better than some but he is wrong about transfers all the time!

This goes out to Ed002 if he is available. I read somewhere, I think it was the Chelsea page, that United could be in for Fabregas. could you possibly shed some light on it please? Given that we see a Magic discussion down the page, is it Matic or Fabregas that we are interested in, if either.

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United could potentially be push for Matic as the interest from elsewhere has gone. Fabregas is keen to stay.}


1.) 13 Jun 2017 21:25:38
Sorry Ed, can I clarify, the interest United had elsewhere has gone or interest in Matic from elsewhere has gone?

{Ed002's Note - The other club that was interested in Matic are no longer keen.}


2.) 13 Jun 2017 23:41:11
Cheers for the reply, Ed!


3.) 14 Jun 2017 05:26:33
Thanks Ed. If Fabregas is staying, why are Chelsea considering Verrati? They can't have two similar sorts playing in the same game.

{Ed002's Note - You appear to be on the wrong page.}


4.) 14 Jun 2017 05:38:51
@Ed002

Wasn't the other club that was interested in Matic? If so, have they found someone else they are going for or have they backed out due to a high asking price?

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry - this is the MU page.}

Brilliant game. Wonderful win. Chuffed. This is the damn problem. This team is capable of these performances. They just don't do it enough. Midfield or no midfield.

Look out for an essay from Shappy now telling us how Ole is the second coming. There will also be some "brilliant post, couldn't have agreed more" from some of his loyal subordinates 😂😂😂😂.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 04 Dec 2019 21:27:53
You could have just stopped after chuffed. The rest just sounds really churlish, mate.


2.) 04 Dec 2019 21:31:37
Great to win, much needed.


3.) 04 Dec 2019 21:34:28
It’s very frustrating. Despite all the deficiencies we know about, we should have at least 4 more points. It wouldn’t make us title contenders but would put us right in the fight for top 4. Just need some bloody consistency.


4.) 04 Dec 2019 21:37:58
I'm just happy that I won't have to listen to all my spurs mates bigging it up. Also nice to get 1 over jose, wonder how much extra motivation that alone gave the players tonight? 🤔.


5.) 04 Dec 2019 21:40:14
If your going to slag ole off when he gets it wrong at least credit when he gets it right.


6.) 04 Dec 2019 21:47:14
Thought we were excellent especially Rashford. Good to have McTominay back. Thought spurs were woeful.


7.) 04 Dec 2019 22:09:29
Still don't know if Jose picked McTom to prove a point, or because he genuinely saw something in him. I think and hope it was the latter, so fair play to him. Makes the odd mistake, but struts around the midfield area like he owns it, at such a young age. Great attitude.

I know Young was possibly at fault for the goal, but I still think it was the right call to pick him. Young Williams can still be a bit rash at the back, and I think an older, more experienced head was needed tonight. Good result, and thoroughly deserved.


8.) 04 Dec 2019 22:21:46
Shan, everyone is in full agreement that Ole doesn't have the credentials to manage United and no one mentioned he is the second coming or something. Just like you and others are slagging Ole off at any given chance, people who like Ole are trying to support him given the state of the club into account and the sentiments they have for the man - nothing wrong in that.

I do like whatever the right things he is trying to do at the club - clearing out players that are not good enough, bringing in youth, trying to play a high-pressing game, etc. However I am critical of the performances on the pitch, his tactical flaws and his ability to keep the players focused and motivated. If he can improve on these things and get the right results consistently with the players on his side, I don't mind having him around and complete the rebuild.

To be honest, it has been a frustrating season so far and I for one hope that we go on a rich vein of form winning matches from now on and come Jan/ next summer we strengthen the squad with some quality additions and kick on from there. This cycle of changing managers has gone on for too long without any significant improvements and I do not want any more knee-jerk reactions from the club.


 

 

03 Dec 2019 05:37:34
This one is for RedMan. I saw a pic on the internet of Ole in what looked like a deep discussion with Phelan. The tag line of the photo was-

"Failed Cardiff Manager in deep discussion with the Failed Hull City manager on how to resurrect the great Manchester United. "

😂😂😂😂😂

What we have is Ole and Phelan with records as above and assisting them is Carrick who has no managerial/ coaching experience and McKenna. What should we expect?

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed047's Note -

A - a miracle? 🤷‍♂️
B - The 2nd coming 🤔
C - a massive slice of luck🤞
D - more of the same 💩

Those providing an essay need not reply. 🤣


1.) 03 Dec 2019 06:49:25
Shan

I want to laugh but this denial by the club over the Ole situation is too frustrating, maybe the originators of that picture and line have read my posts over the last 12 months. It is factual though, obscurity management from Norway and via Hull through backwater Australia. Amateur as Ed says.

Nevertheless there are rumours the club decision makers are starting to feel this isn’t a long term situation and may get resolved sooner if results continue. This has already gone on far too long, dithering board. I won’t cheer when he and Phelan get sacked but I will feel relief, OGS will always be a club playing legend and revered as such.


2.) 03 Dec 2019 07:08:02
Shan, basically, they've got it spot on. Appointing phelan was the worst decision, as I've said previously and at the time. He offered nothing as a player and even less as a coach. I also criticized the appointment of Carrick, as he has zero coaching experience and a very dour character. Non of the three in charge are going to be running motivational courses, are they? You look at Pep and Klopp and you see the emotion in them, this transforms itself to the team and the fans.
We have three men in charge who are all dour and with no leadership qualities. You've either got it or you haven't.
My preference is for Rodgers as he's got excellent tactical awareness, a good balance between emotion and calmness, and seems to be an excellent man manager. I think he'll be an excellent choice. But will he leave Leicester City in the near future? They are flying and I think it will be hard to drag him away before end of this season.
Ed047, I think a combination of A, B and C is required.

{Ed047's Note - I make you right AAA much like we need at Arsenal


3.) 03 Dec 2019 09:58:39
Unfortunately, even when he loses his job in the next couple of months, the stubborn Ole fans will still cry foul play about the situation. The sooner this mess is put behind us the sooner we can start planning for the future.


4.) 03 Dec 2019 10:01:23
Might sound childish but I never want a manager Liverpool have sacked at Old Trafford. I don't buy into the Rodgers hype. He bottled it at Liverpool. Failed to keep key players likes Sterling, went to Celtic which is a two horse race - and they had already lost a horse and now is having a few good months at a solid club like Leicester and he's flavour of the month again. All those who say Poch hasn't won anything so we don't want him and then in the next breath call for Rodgers, are frankly embarassing. It broke my heart he went to Celtic as its a club close to me and my family. I couldn't enjoy it as I just don't like the guy. If he gets any further up his own arse he will get stuck. At least Jose had the C. V to back up the arrogance.


5.) 03 Dec 2019 11:00:28
Mumbles,

I think if Ole went the fans would appreciate he tried but it didn't work, nobody could really be surprised at the club making that decision right now, it was a strange decision to give it him really, especially the timing.

I think you are getting mixed up with people thinking there are some good things he is doing and not wanting to 'start again' and stubbornness.

There are 3 or 4 managers available right now who I am sure would take the job, they will need backing in the market though and continue the work Ole has done but with better results which will buy more time from fans who judge on a game by game basis.


6.) 03 Dec 2019 11:07:16
Whilst I am not advocating Rodgers, was he not an academy player at United?


7.) 03 Dec 2019 11:59:18
GDS2, fans will always still sing about Ole. His status as a legend will be untouched. There was a thread the other day proclaiming we play attacking football. If Ole lost his job tomorrow, they will cry he didn't get enough time. It's stubborness plain and simple. There's is virtually nothing to be positive about this year.


8.) 03 Dec 2019 09:22:32
What we need Ed is a combination of A, B and C but what we will get is D.

{Ed047's Note - yep I think you could be right


9.) 03 Dec 2019 13:48:22
Mumbles, your posts here are starting to sound childish now. GDS explains how most of us will feel. It'll be sad that it didn't work out for him, but we'll move on. As football always does. Why try to start silly arguments by getting wee digs in at people, and trying to encourage this, 'us and them' situation on the site?


10.) 03 Dec 2019 14:14:03
On your high horse again NouCamp. Neither side of the argument can take the moral high ground. Every post is hijacked with people's thoughts on the matter.

It's not about starting an argument. Its not us vs them. It's not I told you so. I am distraught by the state of the club on and off the pitch and unfortunately on the pitch matters start and end with the manager.

Some posters would rather stick with Ole struggling for the next 18 months, because they originally backed him and are too proud to admit it's been a disaster.


11.) 03 Dec 2019 14:59:16
"Unfortunately, even when he loses his job in the next couple of months, the stubborn Ole fans will still cry foul play about the situation".

Nah, not trying to start an argument, or make it us v them, at all.

And I thought we were supposed to back all our managers once they're appointed. We might not like them or rate them, but surely wanting them to succeed, thus making the club successful, is more important than getting a chance to say I told you so, to a group of total strangers.


12.) 03 Dec 2019 15:13:24
Ate there die hard Ole fans? I've not seen many if any. Some are more patient than others but I'm not sure many think he is the answer.


13.) 03 Dec 2019 15:24:29
I think that's exactly it, Tony. I don't know one person who thought he should be first choice for the job, nor anyone who doesn't have serious doubts about whether or not he's up to the job. But some say he should go now, while others argue the conditions at the club currently, make it irrelevant who's the manager. Like you said, patience is the only real difference.


14.) 03 Dec 2019 23:11:33
I think I’m like most fans. We all desperately wanted OGS to work and be our version of Pep - a hidden gem that came froM lower level coaching to become the next big thing. I think it’s clear to see he is not that - I wonder if a change of assistant might help as I personally think Phelan is a dinosaur and well out of touch with modern football.


 

 

28 Nov 2019 10:34:15
The biggest quality of a good manager is his ability to get the best out of the current squad which Ole is failing at the moment. We cannot and should not do a hit and trial method if we consider us to be a big club. We can't sit here for 3 years waiting for his players and then see what he can do. Sorry but that's a big risk and i wouldn't take that risk on Ole the manager. For me "knows the club" is irrelevant to what a manager can or cannot do. SAF didn't know United when he joined, Jose didn't know Chelsea, Arsene didn't know Arsenal and so on.

I honestly don't see the improvement in the team, a few players here and there are improving but you simply put that down to may be a season or two under their belts but the team as a whole has regressed. We are 9th as things stand. We bought 130m worth of defenders and still shipping in goals for fun. Each week there is a mistake and we quickly point out that it was his mistake and his mistake. Where is the accountability of the team as a whole. Ole after the Sheffield match said that the performance was good. I mean really? Bar the 10 minutes of all out attack, it was dire as hell.

I never called for sacking of Moyes, LvG or Jose even when they were boring me to death but with Ole i really get enraged. I wouldn't have asked him to be sacked if he were appointed based on his skills as a manager and if i thought he were capable to turning things around. But i really can't see that happening. You put a proper football manager in his position and i am ready to afford him as much time as he needs.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 28 Nov 2019 10:57:18
Enough already. We get it. Ole is inept, clueless, inexperienced and whatever other synonyms you want to use to describe him. Feel like my eyes are going to pop out reading the same things over and over.


2.) 28 Nov 2019 11:30:05
Ed025, this was supposed to be a revert to one of your posts down the page :D. don't want this to be another in the long line of posts demeaning the great one and open up a can of worms. You see the first reply on this.

St Lucia, its a similar feeling for the other half of the spectrum when people tell us that he is good and the squad is useless.

{Ed025's Note - its all about opinions in the end shan, i respect yours mate even though i dont agree with it...but time could prove you right i suppose..


3.) 28 Nov 2019 11:35:35
Agree St Lucia, the same people banging on, I saw Red Man taking about relegation again yesterday, let’s assume that Ole is not the answer and that he is not a top coach, but let’s step back. There were clearly issues at the club, a lot of players not good enough and some questionable attitudes so some form of clear out was needed. It is clear that that is what is happening with Lukaku gone, Sanchez hopefully gone, Pogba looking like he will be gone, same for Matic. Smalling is on loan (I would have kept him) and we have made 3 reasonable signings. Add to that the continuing emergence of McTominay, the gentle integration of Greenwood and Williams, the time given to other youngsters, it becomes clear we are starting a major rebuilding programme. Perhaps the club has accepted it will take time and papering over cracks with a shiny signing is not a long term solution.

Let’s assume (and it’s a big assumption) that we sign another 3 players who integrate well and take us a step up. Let’s assume a couple of the youngsters step up and become solid squad players. Let’s assume we can offload those players surplus to requirements.

I’m not convinced by Ole but I like the changes of playing staff so far and lots more is needed. The lack of application against Bournemouth and Sheffield United was dreadful and needs addressing, Maybe he is reshaping to hand over to someone else (whether he realises it or not), maybe the club is blind and thinks he’s a Messiah. Whatever the situation, continually posting he is useless and needs to go is pretty pointless.


4.) 28 Nov 2019 12:26:10
On paper do you believe we have a better squad than the likes of City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs?

I would imagine you could even argue that Arsenal and Leicester have first teams comparable or even better than ours. Most people would snatch your hand off if you offered them Ndidi, Maddison, Tielemens, Vardy and Chilwell. That's five players from Leicester who most would swap straight into the United first team.

So if there are at least four better squads then the reality is 5th is the best we could achieve if playing to our potential. That's not factoring in things like injuries that can significantly impact a teams ability to play to their potential.

The quality in our squad is mostly locked up in young players with potential. We have DDG, Fred, Maguire, Jones, Rojo, Pogba and Lingard who are players in their peak years 25-30. Everyone else is either young and improving or declining such as Matic, Mata and Young.

Of those players in their peak years most would only sat DDG, Maguire and Pogba are good enough to be first choice. Of those three Pogba has been out injured and is uninterested in playing for us. While even Maguire has been getting criticism lately.

Compare that to most of our rivals they have 5-6 players on average who are considered good enough and in that 25-30 age bracket.

That means for our squad to achieve the best of its ability we will NEED 3-4 young players under the age of 25 to step up and perform at their full potential consistently.

Is that really likely regardless of who the manager is?


5.) 28 Nov 2019 12:29:54
Tony i agree this is painful and i, for one, am ready to take a step back and not post the same again and again. But everytime i see a post (essay) hailing him to be the messiah and that he needs time to do this and that, i cringe and the hand is forced. But yes, this has gone on far too long and i will try to not force my opinion on others day in day out. Once a week may be :P.


6.) 28 Nov 2019 12:34:26
regardless of manager the team is average,

there is a few decent players but you just have to look at our bench its awful



put any of the top 4 teams midfield in ours and we would massively improve

as it is we don't have the midfield to dominate games.


7.) 28 Nov 2019 12:35:09
Gary Nev was spot on about the effort and attitude of the front three at Shef Utd first 70 mins.

Everyone knew that Fred and Andreas were going to be under a lot of pressure against a very good midfield

Young players are going to be up and down. But the application and effort should never be in question. Martial and Rash in particular were strolling around with their bottom lips hung out as if the game owes them a favour. James was the source of almost all our threat, and made a few poor choices when it came to end product.

The coaching team will no doubt be hammering that into the players. They are young and they will learn.

When they are good, that front three can be as good as any in the prem. If they can crack the issue of consistency we will not be far away. A midfield that wins the ball and can create chances would be a good start.


8.) 28 Nov 2019 12:56:25
We drew with Liverpool and Arsenal, beat both Chelsea and Leicester. Them having better squads than us does not and should not affect us one iota when we play the likes of Newcastle and Bournemouth.

One the year the man is in the job and we look worse than when he took over. Our shiny new defenders have helped us keep 2 clean sheets this year, ironically against the two teams that have better squads than us in Chelsea and Leicester.

Jose was sacked for being 6th mid December. Our next 3 games are Villa, Spurs and City. Let's see are we 6th on Oles one year anniversary?

How long should it take for a manager to implement their "style" on a team?


9.) 28 Nov 2019 13:54:20
We are were we are and it’s down to many things. The club being run like amateurs, shocking recruitment. We are well off because ultimately the playing staff are not at the level we as fans want. That’s it.


10.) 28 Nov 2019 14:10:45
Dodgy please watch the games rather than listening to neville spout nonsense out of hindside. Rashford, Martial and James were consistently making runs and the ball rarely came 5 yards near them, periera a a midfielder had a 60% passing success rate, how exactly are the forwards suppose to do anything with that brilliant a display behind them.

The reason james was the only so called threat was because he was the poor guy who had to drop 20 yards back to get the ball and hope that he can carry it forward for either of martial or rashford to make something off it, because we rarely had any meaningful posession around the final third of sheffield's goal.


11.) 28 Nov 2019 14:30:50
CSM, I watched the game, and I thought Rash spent more time with his hands on his hips, pouting, than making runs. I didn't need Neville to point out what was staring me in the face. Yes, our midfield was creating nothing, but there was also nothing in front of them giving them an outlet either.


12.) 28 Nov 2019 14:43:38
Me too Stevie, they spent the first half pretty static.


13.) 28 Nov 2019 15:00:51
Noucamp how are they supposed provide an outlet when the ball doesn't reach them, how many through balls did we attempt in the entire game? I don't remember one. I saw awb, fred and periera mess up 5 yard passes to stationery james and martial. All 3 made multiple abrogated runs in the match as the game is called football not track and field.

Right now, this team creates nothing for the forwards. One of the reasons we struggled so much when martial was injured because rashford doesn't have a clue what to do with the ball other than shoot it when he can see the goal, james is raw and has a long way to go to be consistently creating chances for others. And no one else is good enough to step up. Especially ole's 2 golden boys lingard and periera.

There seems to be a weird blame culture among utd fans right now where we keep blaming the only part of the team that is working right now. let's not criticize the midfield who outside of mctominay don't help in defense or attack, let's not criticize the backline which folds every time an opponent attacks us, let's all pile on the forwards because it is their fault that we create nothing for them to finish, its their fault that we keep conceding soft goals, their fault that the rest of the team can't keep possession.


14.) 28 Nov 2019 15:21:32
The criticism should be aimed where it's warranted. The forwards shouldn't get a free ride, just because they're better players. In fact, you could say that being better players, they should be criticised more when they're not pulling their weight. Despite the midfield's ability limitations, there's no denying their work rate. That work rate needs to be replicated elsewhere as well.

It seems to be a factor when we play the so-called weaker teams, and one that they'll need to fix attitude-wise. There are no easy games, and teams like SU will not just sit back and let you play your pretty football. Rash almost looked like he was affronted that SU weren't giving him time to play. I like all three of our forwards, but their work-rate's and attitudes need to change.


15.) 28 Nov 2019 16:17:15
Well it took pep 15 months to implement his style at city and he had a better starting squad and spent how much?

It took klopp 2-3 seasons starting with a squad on par with ours and he's spent how much?


16.) 28 Nov 2019 16:45:06
Mort if we are comparing managers, why don't we compare their resumes before they joined their current teams. And you also conveniently ignore the fact that that within months of joining anyone who watched the klopp and pep teams could see what style and tactics they were trying to implement, even ole would be hard pressed to explain how exactly it is that we set up to play.


17.) 28 Nov 2019 16:26:41
Mumbles mate, I don’t think that’s the issue. I think he is clearing out and trying to build and develop. In some respects, this reminds me of around 1990 when we won the Cup. We had been all over the place yet we won the FA Cup and also whacked Arsenal 6-3 at Highbury. I’m not comparing Ole to SAF but the team could go either way. Poor purchases and we regress, good purchases, and a couple of youngsters developing and we will step up. It’s not a quick fix, Ole may well not be the man, but it will take patience.


18.) 28 Nov 2019 16:38:18
Mumbles, I think it's fair to say our squad is better suited to play sides that will come out and attack us.

We have pacy forward players, but no one behind them with the intelligence or ability to find to half spaces or a round the corner pass when teams sit deep in a low block.

The other issue is that we don't have a player to provide that shield in front of our defence. With players in some games able to waltz through our midfield at will.

Gary Neville suggested that a midfield duo of Pereira and Fred doesn't even look midtable standard.

But with no one else to play we are stuck.

There aren't any managers anywhere who can turn players who aren't good enough into world class talents. People rave about how Pep improves players, yet in three years at City he has sold or moved on all bar 2 or 3 of the original 26 man squad he took over. So why didn't he just improve the 23 players he has let go? Fact is, you can help a player develop and reach their potential, but you can't get a player to elevate themselves above their ceiling.


19.) 28 Nov 2019 17:48:00
Is it just me that is missing all of the posts hailing Ole the messiah? Really strange people keep replying to posts saying that when I’ve not seen one.


20.) 28 Nov 2019 17:59:08
I don't think he was even anyone's first choice, GDS, but it's a tried and tested tactic when trying to whip up a lynch mob. Overstate the position of the other side.


21.) 29 Nov 2019 10:07:15
GDS, Those comments are targeted at anyone who doesn't toe the party line that Ole is clearly the worst manager ever in existence.

Like Stevie says, its about overstating the other sides position to make them sound deluded or unrealistic.


 

 

10 Nov 2019 16:47:51
Is the league fixed? How was Salah not offside? Where was VAR? Why wasnt the penalty given for TAA's handball. Smells of the Serie A match fixing scandal.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 10 Nov 2019 16:54:16
Yet again, no yellow for Fabinho. couldn't have been a clearer tactical foul.


2.) 10 Nov 2019 17:05:06
Match fixing, no, VAR still being a bit of a shambles, yes.

A few years ago, you'd consider the TAA handball to possibly be a bit harsh as his hand is at his side and he probably expects Aguero to get a touch. There have been far more dubious handball decisions given this season than that one so for me it was a definite pen.


3.) 10 Nov 2019 17:07:07
Salah offside in the first ball not the ball for the goal?


4.) 10 Nov 2019 17:09:02
Salah was offside using the current interpretation, I think there will be a big outcry.

Looked a handball by Arnold but If you ignore that I just don’t understand how they decided everything so quickly for their second. It looks offside.


6.) 10 Nov 2019 17:29:27
Liverpool are going to win the league in the season nobody understand the rules anymore including the refs it seems. Even if TAA isn’t a penalty as soon as they go up the other end and score it can’t be given as there’s no doubt it his his arm in the build up.


7.) 10 Nov 2019 17:33:24
For the second goal, first replay looked offside and suddenly Salah now looks onside, funny that.


8.) 10 Nov 2019 17:37:31
I didn't think Salah was offside for the header but was in the old rule of build up?

But it was handball no question.


9.) 10 Nov 2019 19:49:12
Have you forget B. Silva's hand ball?
Are you sure Salah is off?
For the second hand ball, where can a defender have his hands then? Isn't it would be harsh call?


10.) 10 Nov 2019 19:56:36
Certainly the ball that hit Trent's hand came from Bernardo's hand? Wouldn't it seem like a play on by the referee, for a Bernardo handball? Which of the handballs should he have given?


11.) 10 Nov 2019 21:19:24
Trent played the ball knowing there was a player behind him. Definite pen. Shocking decision by VAR.

I'd have been fuming if I was Pep.

They deserved the win.

More of that please. More of that. Williams should be first choice with Young as backup with Shaw first choice at the hospital wing. Rashford scores a good one and then misses 2 absolute sitters but still had a good game. Enjoyed watching this game. Hoping that they continue in this way going forward.

Totally agree. Very refreshing to actually enjoy a game. Williams Fred and James excellent.


2.) 10 Nov 2019 16:14:23
You could almost say that fragile positivity is returning to the club Shan 😁

Need to keep this run going. Some good performance from players, and they no longer look like a team of overpaid strangers.


3.) 10 Nov 2019 16:29:37
Dodgy i think the word i would use is "cautious". Cautious positivity. The overpaid stranger is injured and it will be interesting if the great one is prepared to break up Fred-McT partnership to include Pogba.


4.) 10 Nov 2019 16:31:33
We played really well. Not every team we play against will be as naive as Brighton were throwing bodies forward. A little toothless in attack and not clinical enough but a lot of really positive performances. We're moving the ball a lot quicker and with a lot more purpose. Let's hope this isn't another 2 steps forward 3 steps backwards.


5.) 10 Nov 2019 16:34:17
Rashford should have scored 2 hat tricks in a week easily.
The attacking play was absolutely exciting to watch.
Good interchanges and link up play.
Hope McTominay is ok.


6.) 10 Nov 2019 17:05:40
Enjoyed that today. Was fun.


7.) 10 Nov 2019 17:09:42
Fred was a revelation, it’s slow progress but he keeps improving,


8.) 10 Nov 2019 17:21:13
AJH,

Best game Fred has had for us today by a long way, run in the team may have helped. Couldn’t pick a poor player today, perhaps martial was the weakest but he got 2 assists, very good team performance. Williams a revelation at left back, local lad with something about him, brilliant.


9.) 10 Nov 2019 17:34:07
Indeed, there was a period where we were attacking wave after wave, just need to convert more of the 21 chances we created.


10.) 10 Nov 2019 17:35:18
Rashford missing the sitters is a common enough occurrence these days, he'll never be a striker because of it but shouldn't hinder him too much.

It's his tunnel vision that's the problem, martial today was time and again unselfish choosing to make the smart pass instead of having a shot which led to 2 of the goals and atleast 1 other chance. Rashford had multiple opportunities to return favor and play lingard and james in yet chose to have shots from angles he is not scoring from. The kid really needs to be told to be less greedy.

Can't wait for pogba to replace pereira, the front 4 would be good to watch.


11.) 10 Nov 2019 19:51:31
Careful what you wish for CSM.

PP will not press with as much energy as Andrea's. He will dwell on the ball longer. Remains to be seen if he can find the pockets of space as well. Andreas may be our best option there until Maddison arrives ;)


12.) 11 Nov 2019 02:38:11
Dodgy, I know people here don't like pogba much for various reasons but periera adds little to the team outside workrate, he has the same problem as rashford as the minute there is even the slightest hint of open space he wants to have a shot, it's worse than rashford as atleast rashford has the excuse of being a forward.

Pogba whether you like him or not is a great player and has actual passing ability that none of our no 10's currently possess.


13.) 11 Nov 2019 08:55:38
Agree with CMS.
Pogba can split open defenses with accurate passes. He is a much bigger goal threat than Andreas as well.

Wonder if Florentino Perez also thinks the same before a sacking. What if my next manager thinks that fans will have issues.

Man Utd will be a lucrative job for any manager provided he has the balls to do it.

But Weggy, MH could bo onto something. Despite having Maguire and unbeatable AWB and Lindelof, we have hardly kept a clean sheet this season. Although, i understand we are still early days in the season and the partnership needs developing but MAguire hasn't had that effect on the United defense as VvD had on Liverpool's.

Good shout that Shappy. Both great options and won't cost much, but then again its United so even stones cost us diamonds. Wonder what happened with Bertrand. Remember he was linked to us and he is a good option for Shaw to compete with. Are there no fullbacks in our academy?

I am not complaining here guys. But you got to keep in mind the other aspects of the game. We are playing Darmian behind him and he was conpletely left exposed against Leicester because Mata didn't have the legs to help out. If Mata plays centrally, then he is brilliant but on the wings you need to help out your fullback which is where Mata lacks.

What we need Ed is a combination of A, B and C but what we will get is D.

So Ole is just a rubber stamp even in the dugout. Wonder what the players think of that. Yes Man. Big V by giving out this info you have just given more ammo to demean Ole.

Thanks Becks. This made my day. Its always good to have a good laugh early in the morning.

Ed047, its more like Andreas Perreira to Messi. But going by Becks viewpoint, i am sure Messi is OGS and Perreira is Klopp 😂😂😂😂.

Redman, i think it would be a 3-0 to us. Just get a feeling. Fred with the hat trick.

I better wake up now, too much dreaming for the day.
