City sign Dias and Ake for around Maguire's price 😂😂 rather have them two than that awful slabhead we have stealing a living.

Surely we have to make a move for a CB, LB and RW maybe a CDM if move pogba on aswell.

Yes and how good they looked today. Don't you think?

26 Sep 2020 17:46:09
Poor performance yes. Pogba was awful again - no mobility, couldn't keep the ball or win it back. Don't know what else a midfielder could do wrong. Defence shocking - we know about the centre backs but AWB was also poor in his positioning. Can see why Ole wants a left back so Brandon can push him for the RB position. Right now there is no competition in that place.
Three points and last minute winners always build confidence within the squad so I am over the moon.
One massive plus is the way Greenwood is progressing. His overall play - link up, picking the right pass and even hold up was excellent today. Can't believe he is only 18. What a talent!
And looks like we have the old Marcus back.

Roll on Wednesday.

since coming to us awb has gone from one of the best defenders to the worst.

26 Sep 2020 19:48:48
Dazw last season AWB was widely touted as one of, if not the best one on one defenders in the world.

Now here you are saying he’s one of the worst defenders around.

You are overreacting.

26 Sep 2020 19:51:47
Nonsense Daz. He’s been superb.

26 Sep 2020 20:09:44
since the restart he's been nowhere near the player that played for palace. we would be better playing williams there. ment to put and before lockdown.

26 Sep 2020 20:59:35
Dazw he has played 1 League game

ONE GAME!

26 Sep 2020 22:37:32
He’s our best defender by a country mile.

27 Sep 2020 00:34:57
wazza i said before the lockdown.

27 Sep 2020 00:58:55
eric all 3 players we bought last summer were playing well at previous clubs which is why we brought them. now seem to have all gone backwards.

27 Sep 2020 07:59:48
dazw, AWB had to be in quarantine for 14 days since he returned from UAE.
That's the reason he didn't train with other players and didn't start the first game.
He is slowly building up his match fitness.

Finally, he was our best defender last year. Kept Sterling in his pocket everytime we played City. There are many other displays in which he was superb defensively.

{Ed001's Note - why did he have to quarantine after returning from the UAE? There is no requirement to do so.}

27 Sep 2020 09:48:15
Ed001 I’m not sure if it was that, or if he was dropped for breaking the rules.

Didn’t he go there against the clubs wishes?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I never heard anything about that. There were quite a few players out here during the short break, none of the rest needed to be quarantined. I would ask around but all the people I know around here have gone home due to the virus, so not as easy to get info.}

26 Sep 2020 14:56:21
Well what to say after that.

You could march an army through the space between AWB and Greenwood.

It's not unrealistic to say Brighton should have had 7 or 8 there.

If we keep conceding chances like that we are in big trouble.

Lost count of how many times Pogba was either tackled or kicked the ball out of play. I'm encouraged to see Ole is subbed him twice in a row, perhaps he is starting to see how terrible he is.

I don't recall seeing an ending like that before. Absolute madness.

But hey ho. 3 points. Take them and run.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2020 15:38:35
Good assessment wazza. Finishing a game against Brighton with 1 attacker on the pitch tells its own story. Hanging on for dear life but snatched or at the end.
We move on in the hope it gets better.
Pogba was awful. Dvb adds a bit of life.

26 Sep 2020 16:27:24
Ken I think we had to hold on.

It almost didn’t work but we got out of jail in the most bizarre fashion.

It will just be 3 points in a few months time. Under no illusions though, the club needs to improve its staff from top to bottom.

26 Sep 2020 22:58:45
7 or 8? Give me strength.

27 Sep 2020 06:52:37
TBF Eric, they scored twice and hit the woodwork 5 times, and missed a couple of good chances. I can see Wazza's point.
Maybe COULD have instead of SHOULD have? Either way, we were very lucky.

27 Sep 2020 09:52:07
Eric, yes 7 or 8.

They hit the woodwork 4 times, had a (legitimate) penalty overturned and scored 2. On another day, that’s 7.

March also spurned two or three at the back post.

It’s a miracle we won.

27 Sep 2020 16:14:58
You know hitting the woodwork counts as a
Shot off target?

27 Sep 2020 18:55:00
Yes Eric but that doesn’t change anything. It could have been 7 or 8 if it weren’t for Brighton’s poor finishing. They got into scoring positions far too easily, had that been Mane and Robinson down their side god only know me what it would have finished up. I’m not really sure how you could see it any other way but fair enough.

26 Sep 2020 14:53:44
Well. 😂😂😂 not deserved at all of course. It’s good to win games when we’re bad but we weren’t just bad, we were awful. So today’s win is not through grit and hard work but through pure luck of missed chances by Brighton and a silly handball. Where do we go from here honestly?
A lot of our senior players always start matches like they’re only playing at 50%.
We’ve had this annoying common theme where we go 1 nil down and start to perform.
The sudden change in tempo and intent with our play when we went down really frustrated me.
Luke Shaw summed this up perfectly. He was constantly running down the wing then going backwards and misplacing passes. His first move after we go one nil down is to attack the wing properly, get a foul in a dangerous area from which we score. Why can’t he just attack the flank like that always?
The first goal we conceded comes from AWB juggling with the ball like a clown, he gets tackled and drops to the floor and the ball gets delivered from there to Lamptey who gets a pen. Brighton were winning all the little battles and our players seemed weak in comparison.
The way in which we started should have seen Ole on the touchline also. I’m not comfortable when he’s just seated waiting for the inevitable to happen.
The goal from March was coming all second half. For a defensive right back, AWB positioning was awful all match. He was so close to our CB every time the ball was crossed rather than Trossard or March.
The 343 system really worked for Brighton today and it’s something for other teams to note.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen us be this lucky in a very long time. Unlucky Brighton but extremely happy with the 3 points.

27 Sep 2020 00:08:48
Like I said on the live chat, I'd defend any manager for trying to shut up shop with 10 minutes to go, away from home with a 1 goal lead. Better that than setting up for a draw from the very start, in games we could be winning. Completely different mindset.

27 Sep 2020 07:21:20
Neville rightly said AWB should not be forced to play like Arnold or Walker but rather play to his strength. Everyone knows he is better at defending but most of the time he is out of position.

27 Sep 2020 10:42:19
Wan bissaka would be a good cb in a 3. He has the pace to get back and 1 on 1 he is up there with the best.

27 Sep 2020 10:44:38
It doesn’t matter who the team is, if you’re under pressure and need to secure the points then there is no issue putting an extra defender on and trying to get one on the counter. I think the intention is to have an attacking mindset but the implementation is not there. Brighton played how we should have played. It wasn’t comfortable viewing but the win is what matters.
I think AWB position in our own box is not the best. Just way too many chances came from that area and on another day we get absolutely battered.

Growing reports that Ed Woodward has put his house up for sale. No idea why, it could be that he fears a repeat of the idiots who went round to his house, but who knows.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 06:59:14
With a bit of luck he and Matt Judge are moving to Timbuktu, but the reality is he’s just being smart looking at how the property market is predicted to go over the next 12 months.

25 Sep 2020 08:31:35
Most likely he's just moving. He splits his time between Manchester and the London office anyway. Maybe he has decided to live in/ near London or maybe he is just looking to move after the the issue with the idiots who attacked his house.

25 Sep 2020 09:47:17
i can completely understand him moving to a more secure / unknown location to get away from the idiots who associate love for the club with violence. Especially with the over-riding negative vibe around the club at the minute.

25 Sep 2020 14:07:00
Not to go all tin-foil-hat about it, but wasn’t the attack on his house revealed to be a press stunt? Not saying he organised, or that those involved aren’t idiots, but I’m sure it was a bit of a mini-scandal as it was a set-up. Happy to be told otherwise - there is a lot of terrible journalism and sketchy reports out there!

25 Sep 2020 18:19:48
House for sale. Woodward raising funds to purchase some players.

23 Sep 2020 14:01:26
Van de beek mata and fernandez would play well together, with two wingbacks much like silva in his last years no pace but so clever.
(Mata)
Seems lingard and a few others are not on the same planet with intelligent link up play with van de beek.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Sep 2020 17:23:42
Juan Mata is still a class act. Such a tidy player- big fan of him. Not suggesting he starts every week, but still offers an excellent rotation option for us.

24 Sep 2020 11:22:14
Mata is still decent when employed more centrally, he’s played wide a lot and it’s pointless as he’s not involved enough and doesn’t have the pace to go outside. Playing centrally around the box he’s still got good feet and vision.

22 Sep 2020 10:12:34
Re: Patrice Evra’s 20 minute video on Instagram?

He says Abram Glazer loves the club and that Ed Woodward’s problem is that he trusts the wrong people and that he has told him this many times.

He calls out Matt Judge for not answering his phone. He mentioned a director from a top club contacted Patrice to tell him to tell Matt Judge to pick up his phone. Have to laugh at this point.

Says that unlike Madrid who send ex legends to players houses to help negotiate deals, we send lawyers and talk only about money.

A lot of this is basically what Ed002 has told us all along. Ed Woodward maybe should not be blamed in full?

Should our anger be directed more towards Matt Judge and the “amateurs” we send to negotiate these deals.

Evra says he doesn’t care about what he says in the open. He is a fan of Manchester United first and foremost. He’s not worried about losing a future role in the club like other ex players.

One major issue he addressed was how the club is losing its identity and not teaching the history of the club through the junior teams.
Well done Patrice!

A business is only as good as its staff.

22 Sep 2020 19:38:03
If the owners are daft enough to not know what's going on around the clun we are in deep trouble

I am suprised we finished as high as we did with how rubbish the club is run.

22 Sep 2020 20:24:30
Amazing isn’t it Bolger. You could almost say we had a successful season in finishing 3rd and getting to 3 semi finals. It’s truly a miracle that such terrible players and manager could finish ahead of the fantastic Chelsea, Arsenal and Wolves.

22 Sep 2020 20:44:20
Wazza if the club was better run with better staff running it we could be uo there challenging again.

22 Sep 2020 21:32:53
Bolger I’m not sure about that. Ole is still inexperienced and our squad doesn’t have the quality of City and Liverpool, but it is not all doom and gloom like people on here will have you believe.

We did well last season. We aimed to finish top 4 and finished best of the rest. We were never getting near the top 2.

We don’t have a top manager and we do need more quality added. But we also had a good season so Ole deserves to stay in the role as he surpassed expectations. People seem to forget very quickly after 1 game.

23 Sep 2020 08:55:17
Exactly Wazza.
People wanted top 4 last year and Ole managed to get it.

Now after just 1 league game, the Ole out brigade is back.

23 Sep 2020 23:06:12
We achieved what we needed to and to kick on, Ole must be backed. Show us you have a plan to get us back to where we need to be.
How can we start with the same players we had the season before knowing we have a massive gap to close?
Why are we haggling on players like Peirera? What squad has he got in to recently? It might hurt us in the short term and maybe we don’t replace the likes of him with top quality straight away but promote a youngster if that’s the case. I would rather see that then players like Jones and Peiera make up the numbers.
