Pochetino on MNF tonight, I wonder if he'll have any take on United at the minute. On what he would do differently or what needs to be done with the squad of players available. It might be an interesting watch because I'd imagine it will be heavily discussed as sky and the media would have no problem stirring the pot. Is it coincidental he's on tonight or the timing perfect with our start to the season and increasing pressure on Ole?

i imagine he's on because of the Bielsa connection.

2.) 02 Nov 2020 11:56:14
Maybe keane will interview him😂😂.

Good PR for Poch. Almost as if he’s saying hi everyone I’m still here and available.

4.) 02 Nov 2020 12:47:12
Thats the dream ticket Poch and Keane 🤣😂🤣.

Apparently he will be speaking about United also.

I am truly saddened to hear of Sir Bobby's dementia diagnosis I lost my dad a couple of years ago to this disease and it's a horrible one. Hearing of this has brought all these feelings of upset Rushing back to me as if Sir Bobby is a part of my family. I'm only 33 but he has been a major part of the club I love and my Dad adored him.

1.) 01 Nov 2020 16:21:32
It’s sad news and I’m sorry for your loss Derby. I hope we can get a win for him today.

My Gran has dementia and its been heartbreaking watching her decline. i feel for anyone with a family member who has it, its an awful disease.

3.) 01 Nov 2020 16:54:49
God bless Bobby, everybodies favourite United player.

4.) 01 Nov 2020 17:31:14
It’s a terrible disease. My Nan had it and my mum has early onset. Not a nice disease to deal with but Sir Bobby is made of the right stuff and will no doubt fight to the bitter end.

I mentioned on here a few days ago about our best formations going forward, which were 41212 and 3412 and in my opinion is what is best suited to our squad. Last night went a long way to confirming that for me.

Firstly pogba played more advanced and looked like the player we thought we were getting. Really encouraging display from him and he should never be played as a dm as he just does not have the discipline. Donny looked good on the ball and I noticed he covered a lot of ground and was always available for a pass he looks a very intelligent footballer and will get plenty of minutes. it seems like people outside of the club are trying to make trouble in regards to his playing time so far and I'm sure he'll be an important player for us.

Leipzig I thought were superb at pressing us and leaving no space for us to get out without really threatening us which is credit to our defending, until we brought rashford and bruno on Which highlighted for me the importance of squad depth, end of last season we didn't have that luxury of bringing on not 1 but 2 game changers. Add to that cavani who looked sharp and we look in good shape.

Can't not mention Fred his passing is awful but his work rate and attitude is great to watch I can see why Ole likes him, Mctominay is looking better each time he plays and is a serious option for the DM position his tenacity and ability to get about is a great asset and that's only 2 goals conceded from our last 4 games and they were own goals.

It's easy to get carried away after a win like that but maybe we are on an upward turn. Weve always seemed to bounce back after big setbacks with ole so now there is a need for consistency and hopefully ole doesn't revert to type at the weekend. One thing about us is when we're good we're really good and hard to stop in full flow I'm convinced that with the squad we have we should be challenging for trophies and if ole is the coach to guide us to that then this is the season he has to do it.

Really good post derby.

Heard from a solid source that before Ole brought Rashford on he told him that Naglesmann was a Tory.

1.) 29 Oct 2020 15:47:25
I think if true he would have taken that penalty.



24 Oct 2020 22:47:45
I hate to single out players but Dan James is just not at the required level to be in the squad. What's even more frightening is that Ole starts him, he offers nothing he's just quick. I'd of loved for it to work out for him to, but he's well out of his depth it seems.

1.) 25 Oct 2020 01:28:16
Not even close to the required level and if we didn’t have a better player in his position we should have played a different formation. It’s not his fault as he shouldn’t even be playing, he should be playing under 23 football like Pellestri and Elanga to build confidence and work on his game. As it stands I don’t even see a player who would get into any team in the premier league, I think he even knows this himself.

2.) 25 Oct 2020 05:54:27
His decision making has got to improve.

{Ed025's Note - he should be nowhere near the side TRD, im all for playing the youngsters but they have to be of sufficiant quality mate, im afraid hes not..

He probably in the future wants to be Madrid's left back to. so we would be better walking away from the deal if he's just waiting for Madrid to buy him back one day. Maybe put time into developing Williams.

Thanks ed. Is there going to be more of these? Is there a few already that you could direct me to?

{Ed001's Note - this is the second one, but I do intend to do lots more yes. The first one is linked at the very bottom of the article. Sorry for the late reply, I thought I had already replied but must have forgotten to check the box to actually post it! I blame my age, I always forget to check the tick box to post articles in as part of a series and poor Ed033 always has to go in afterwards and fix it.}

Interestingly enough I think Southgate would be ideal for the role that Greg Clarke has just stepped down from. Like Ole I just don't think he is the right manager to get the best out of the players.

Surely all 3 players could fit in the midfield especially as he's better/ more suited to a cm role? Either 41212 or a 3412, to me its glaringly obvious that they are our 2 best formations with our squad. No natural wingers apart from Dan James who's just not good enough! These formations are also easily adaptable in game and provide strong options from the bench in all areas.

As proven with psg 3 at the back is a good system for us in the big games against the so called lesser teams 1 holding midfielder should be adequate.

Well said GDS he is relentless with it. It is obviously something he cares very deeply about and uses his platform to great effect. Just 22 years old as well, he's an inspiration and deserves every bit of credit he gets I just hope when the stadiums are full his name is sang loudly by all fans as what he has done and continues to do goes beyond football.

Yeah I thought that was the reason for it being alongside the domestic leagues. Would this be a format where a team would have to qualify by placement in league or by invitation based on the clubs prestige and standing in the game? Surely it would mean more games in a season but makes sense why the clubs were pushing for 18 teams in the PL and not playing in the league cup.
