Slow start away from home again but by the end a well deserved win .
Not everyones favorites but pogba and bailly played really well.
I can't help but think someone sit down with pogba show him how well he played without the flicks and Hollywood passes and concentrate on the possession passes and bursting from midfield breaks like he did today, on his game not trying to be fancy he's our best central midfielder.
We are in mid January and well in the tittle take, wether its through C.V., injuries, no crowds or whatever its the first time in years, even the year we were second it wasn't a race it was like whos second to usain bolt and not a race .
Theres a few match winners in the side and let's roll with it, i still fancy city but its good to be involved again.

Pogba was phenomenal. If we see this Pogba turn up every game, we will win the league.

I hope everyone had the best Christmas possible under the circumstances and best wishes to all for the new year .
What a crazy season it looks good for the team that can string half a dozen wins together first, haven't studied fixtures but I still fancy city to accomplish that although its surely within reason for many teams including us .
My views on utd are although we build painfully slow from the back we are dangerous and exciting once we finally get the ball forward . We are built to break on teams but we need to master dominating and taking it to teams more . If we had a better right hand side attack I think we could be so much more than we are now and be better equipped to challenge .
Happy new year all and don't fall out over football we all want the same thing.

I want utd to win and I want england to win, I hate it when utd play a back 5 and I hate it when england do as well .
I dislike a back five even more when mctom and matic in front of it . That's a gk, five defenders plus mctom and matic, eight of the team in for defensive abilities not attacking abilities . I get we only needed a draw but it just meant Leipzig had zero fear of us in the first half .

We try various formations because we basically ignored the obvious, in the summer and never bought a first team ready right sided attacker.
Tonight the brave manager beat the super cautious manager.

I’d hardly say that switching formations ahead of our biggest matches of the season and not making it clear to the players where they were supposed to be playing was cautious. To me it was more a case of a competent manager beating a clueless one. Each to their own though, I guess.

Really? The think the manager needed to tell Wan Bissaka what a right wing back was supposed to do? Everyone seems to like bashing the manager - at what point do the players take responsibility? My wife doesn't know much about football but when I asked where a right wing back should be on the pitch she got it right and had a chance of preventing the first two goals. The guy stealing 4.7 million pounds a year from the club not so much.

{Ed001's Note - then why isn't your wife out there? That's right because it is much easier for some no mark to criticise than it is for a professional to actually do it.}

1st goal wasn't his fault team had shifted too far left striker he was covering with Lindelof should have been between him and Maguire but most importantly matic should have stopped the cross we had Shaw matic Maguire and telles around the ball and he got a free cross.2nd goal was Shaw he got out of position then didn't get back so telles had to cover and telles man was the one who scored. we played 3 left backs last night but your complaining about the right side? Rather than those covering that side and a manager who subbed a lb off and left one on who hasn't played for 4/ 5 weeks?!

The team as a whole were woefully poor defending. As others have pointed out we lack leadership on the pitch especially in defence.

I never said a word about being getter or or not with additions, you you added that on yourself, I said we were worse than city two year ago and still are .
I said the team looks similar to 2 years ago as in ten of the eleven starters versus Chelsea could have played at the start of last season .
I said we are not the second best team yet we are second and said through to circumstances at other clubs you then repeated the same thing.

Not a great deal of balance to the whole ole debate, there's people who will never take to him and people who think he's doing okay and not much in the middle.
I think we sit second but I don't think we have the second best team player wise so that suggests ole is doing okay, however there are circumstances that have helped him do this with drop offs in other teams, that's not oles fault though.
I think sometimes we are a little dull and people may wish for a bit more attacking intent, if you find us dull now though then you couldn't have enjoyed it under jose it was duller.
Draws away to rivals are okay aslong as you take points at home against them if you win neither youl slip behind .
The team to me looks very similar to the team a year or two ago when it was apparent then that city have a far superior side and they still do .
We have many of the same issues as last year or the year before my bugbear being every season the long list of players we try on the right side of attack which is then repeated the following season .
We are top scorers though, so my view is we have improved under ole but its a slow burner and needs a bit of a jolt, the football we play away from home once we fall behind is often good good but can make me think why wait till we have fallen behind.

{Ed077's Note - if you had asked me on October 6th 2020 after the end of the transfer window, I would have said MUFC have a top 3 squad this season. Man City and LFC being the other 2. Soon after both VVD and Joe Gomez got injured for the season. That would have meant that MUFC had the 2nd best squad in the league IMO.

If you think the team isn't much better after the addition of Bruno, Cavani, DvdB, Telles than I have nothing more to say to you.}

A cb, sancho and a pogba replacement if he goes for me .
If a cb is added try to move one on so we don't end up with loads of cbs who never play as that's happened before
Cavani, greenwood and Rashford to cover the striker slot and amad to cover either wing if he's ready for it next season.

I thought we played really well yesterday and could have scored more goals than we did .
I'm not sure our opponents game plan was the greatest I've ever seen if they have watched much of united, leaving space behind the defense and giving fast attackers one on one situations with big spaces behind the defender but that's on them they paid the price for it .
Good win and good performance.
