I've been critical of Jose's tactics but hats off to him today he got it spot on. I think it's the most effective I have seen Pogba, the movement of both Jesse and Tony also caused all sorts of problems.
Even at 0-0 we showed better movement, caused Everton problems and it did look it was a case of when we would score.
Great stuff from José and the team, more please.

The extra man in the middle suits pogba.

Reminded me a little bit of the days of Rooney / ronaldo/ tevez/ berba / nani - no out and out centre forward as we know them in the conventional sense but a group of attack minded skilful players who were comfortable across the pitch.

Of course they were better players and were surrounded by better players but even so very fluid and dangerous, a bit like current liverpool forwards now they've ditched sturridge.

I hope we are interested in both especially since the Griezeman option was taken away. I would like to think that Belotti is also still being considered, we do not score enough goals. Whatever people think of him, Lukaku is a proven scorer in the EPL and I know some criticise his record against the 'top' club's, but last season it was our inability to beat the so called lesser clubs that cost us dear.
I've also seen some comments saying that Lukaku won't help us beat Europe's best, I don't see that as an issue at the moment. Let's get back to competing for the EPL and being the best team in England first, if we can achieve that then we will be more appealing to the very top players. Some players will want to play for us because of our history but most of the top players want to be competing to win leagues and the CL.
Since Fergie left we have struggled to compete, so first and foremost let's concentrate on seriously competing for the EPL, the rest will follow.

For me Weds summed up the José conundrum, most people are completely against how we played but we got a result. The style is not easy on the eye so it's not a surprise when we lose to the likes of Huddersfield and Newcastle.
I get fed up with people saying we are 2nd in the league as a defence for José and his tactics because it's where we finish in May that counts. If we lose the tough games we have in the next couple of weeks and we are 4th does that make José a worse manager than he is now.
AAA may have a point about the club looking depressed, how many players play with a smile on their faces, the players look miserable, Lukaku is a great example.
I think our strongest asset is the strengths we have going forward and I would rather see us try to win games rather than avoid losing them. I'm not sure we have gained anything by signing Sanchez due to the way we play, in fact it seems to have disrupted things. Sanchez is a top quality player so let's see him operating in the final 3rd of the pitch rather than just in front of our left back.
Like many I have supported Utd for over 50yrs and even when we got relegated I can't remember the style of play being so hard to watch. We have had worse players and worse managers but we have always tried to win games and for me that is the crux of the matter.

Ed002 - you couldn't be more wrong, the right decision was made so I don't have a problem with the decision about the goal being disallowed. It's the process which is the issue, looking at the pictures that were sent to TV with the wiggly lines, how could the TV ref be certain of his decision. Surely VAR is there to provide definitive evidence with the offside and looking at the pictures I don't see how it provided that evidence.


{Ed002's Note - I am far from wrong. (a) It is nothing that will embarrass the FA. (b) You are whining - regardless of the decision being right or wrong. Whining.}

AJH - I'm not saying all offsides but when an offside decision is reviewed it is a straight question, onside or offside.
I think the offside area of the game presents major problems, it works in instances like yesterday as by millimetres it was correct Mata was offside. We can argue about the process etc but having used VAR the decision was correct.
Where I think it fails is where the referee's assistant (RA) flags for offside the referee awards the free kick but the RA has made the wrong decision and an attacking team is denied a goal scoring opportunity.
To balance it up I would like to see the referee let the game continue where it's a goalscoring opportunity. A goal scoring opportunity isn't just someone through on goal, it could be a winger having the ball wide with players in support who he could pass to after drawing the keeper. If the attacking team gain an advantage, goal / corner then review the RA decision afterwards.
Without spending a lot of time thinking exactly how the advantage would work, the best I can do is to use the above as a starting point.

Ed002 - my understanding is that VAR is a FIFA initiative that the FA has agreed to trial in the FA Cup? As yesterday showed, the system as is is not fit for purpose and as the FA agreed to the trial I think it's embarrassing for them.
Happy to withdraw my statement if my understanding is incorrect.


{Ed002's Note - It comes from IFAB not FIFA. The FA are not embarrassed by any little incident in any Manchester United game. You sound like a Liverpool fan - no doubt you will continue to whine and bleat about it for weeks.}

AJH - when it is offside it is a straight question, onside or offside, the clear and obvious error question does not apply.
That said, the whole incident yesterday was a complete shambles, an embarrassment to the FA.
I think BT said it took them 8mins to get a picture that showed Mata was offside, his knee was millimetres offside. Hands and arms don't count as you cannot use them to play the ball legally.
