I know a guy who's hair dresser looks like Paul Scholes and he promises me that our new Director of football is going to be none other then Djemba Djemba!

Does anyone have any of this type of rumour anymore or has twitter stolen this away from us completely?

How dare you! I posted a club shop post in January re Bruno. Some fella took me seriously and ridiculed me for buying something from that shop.

Be careful mate. There’s a few numpties knocking about.

It really is amazing how the powers that be would give Matic a 3 year deal.

Although he played well 2nd half of last season everyone can see he's just not what he was. Was it worth keeping him signed on this rediculous contract or buying Partey for £40m? Absolute madness.

Ole was in charge . Another fluff up.

2.) 05 Nov 2020 10:00:20
Bit harsh Obi, when Matic signed that deal, him Bruno and Pogba looked like a pretty good combination in midfield and McT was seen as his successor. Matic needs a run of games to get back to those levels.

People talk about Solskjaer being tactically inept but Tuchel mustn't have seen a United game before.

Mbappe can play anywhere across the front three but he decides to put him up against the one player who can nullify any player one on one. When will people learn, don't try dribbling past Wan Bissaka it just won't work.

He's a bloody sniper! Also loving the understanding between him and Tuanzebe. The youngster knows exactly when to step in.

Actually, Mbappe started in the center and he switched with Neymar midway through the first half because they kept getting in each other's way. So that was an in game decision taken by the players, not Tuchel, although he didn't seem to oppose it.

2.) 21 Oct 2020 08:43:03
AWB was back to his brilliant best.

3.) 21 Oct 2020 08:46:54
Obi AWB was great tonight. One on one he is fantastic. I have to say my heart is on my mouth at times but he does live a tackle and his decisions will imoprove with experience.
I think someone else said below mom is a tough call.
Ddg with a couple of saves other keepers just don't make.
Shaw looks better there.
Axel was close to foot perfect.
Mctom and fred doing it ugly. That's a compliment. Its not pretty but they are effective. Id love to see dvdb get his chance and I'm sure he will.
Bruno and rash were great. Martial won a pen not much else went right for him.
Ole got his selection spot on. Great call with axel and a brave call. Let's hope we keep him fit.
Ole deserves all the praise he gets four tonight's show.
I think bruno inspired his team tonight. What a signing he has been.
Great start to the group.

I think the 1st goal yesterday really summed our defence up yesterday, how many chances we had to clear the ball was mad.

The worst part of it, our captain fouls Luke Shaw, just as he was about to clear the ball.

He really hasn't come back from Greece at all.

Didn't he try to nutmeg matic with his dribbling recently. Par for the course with him it seems.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 08:30:20
And for the second goal, he had no business going after Kane. It's almost like he was trying to prove a personal point against his England team mate, and it cost us.

Out of position
Unnecessary foul
Failed to stand over the ball

3 very basic mistakes in a row, and he's our captain.

The spine of our team needs sorting out before we start next season.

{Ed025's Note - this team has no spine wazza mate..

3.) 05 Oct 2020 09:14:13
Where was Maguire for the fifth goal. Pogba got the blame, but Shaw had tracked Moura so he was dragged out of position, and Maguire was no where to be seen. Sure Pogba should be more alert, but he was playing left behind Rashford, all of Fred, Maguire and Shaw should be behind him, none were.

Maguire was mainly responsible for three goals. Bailly messed up for one, but Bailly also put in some crucial crunching tackles and made many blocks, all of which prevented Spurs from either created more chances of actually getting a shot on target. Maguire did none of this. Arguably, Bailly, albeit far from his best, prevented the scoreline from being worse, AWB likewise with some well timed tackles, can the same be said for Maguire. Also, Shaw had a bad game, but he always seems to be doing his job and covering for Maguire at the same time. What business does a slow Maguire have getting so far forward. When Son missed his second one on one with De Gea, it all stemmed from Maguire making a dodgy pass on the edge of Spurs' penalty box.

I also think we lack an organising goalkeeper in De Gea, it's not his forte. He yells at the defence after they concede but seems to do little in terms of organising them in between, somethin the likes of Schmeichel, Barthez and Van der Sar excelled at. I got glimpses of that from Henderson, so maybe it's time to try him out, see if he can organise them better.

Finally, I've seen a lot questioning the coaching in regards to defense. But it was Jose I seem to recall, who said that players are not coached on basics, as they are to be expected of them. Yesterday, the mistakes were basics, positioning, manmarking, spacial awareness, not things to be coached at professional level.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 09:36:47
Spineless manager. That's where all the onfield issues come from.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 09:42:34
Every time Kane received the ball Maguire ran to him, was this his poor decision making or his instructions before the game. I don't excuse the players but the coaching is diabolical, there is no defensive shape, no tracking runners, the team look clueless. We may need some new players but unless we accept the big mistake was giving Ole the job, nothing will change,

6.) 05 Oct 2020 09:18:01
Exactly Ed. We are too soft. Nobody communicating and getting into the players when they aren't performing.

{Ed025's Note - i dont see any respect for ole from his team wazza, he is a bit wishy washy for me mate and i feel his days are numbered ..

7.) 05 Oct 2020 14:45:06
Saying that he didn't came from Greece is a huge wrong, is an exuse.
Its like he is good and smart but his brain is not here but in Greece.
The truth is that this is the real Maguire, he don't have a brain or he don't use it.
He is always the same, chasing the ball everywhere without really using his brain just like at FA cup who injured Bailly, a ball Bailly controlled and Maguire should never involved. He is not in Greece, he is here and he is just so bad.



27 Sep 2020 11:04:22
Awful performance but! . that goal by Rashford though

Seen glimpses that he's returning to form again and that goal was a peach!

There's been way too much hate towards him since he came back from that minor injury of a BROKEN BACK but people forget that when on form he is a one man counter attack. No matter how badly you play (aka yesterday) the boy can keep you in it.

The team look under prepared but Ole and Co had to give them extra time off and they'll be back to fitness soon enough. Plus, with an extra two signings (that we will make before the end of the window) we will be better equipped to battle on all fronts then last season.

Keep the faith lads, it's a long season and it will get better!

I was pleased for him after the great work he did in the week leading up to the game.

That’s two in his last two now, hopefully a sign he’s recovered from his injury.

2.) 27 Sep 2020 12:04:37
Obi I've seen no hate for rashford. I've seen people critisise him. But hate?

3.) 27 Sep 2020 13:35:41
Yeah, hates a bit strong. He’s had a bit of stick, probably undeserved but no hate.

4.) 27 Sep 2020 13:24:46
It's what the younger people refer to as negative or negativity now Ken.

5.) 27 Sep 2020 14:08:08
A word used all the time in here and its simply not true for anyone i'd imagine.
Criticising a player does not constitute hate. A load of bolloxollogy.

6.) 27 Sep 2020 16:37:38
Agreed. It’s nonsense. Rashford and Greenwood are superb talents and the fact they’re homegrown make it even better.

I'm not one to get over excited over 1 game nor write off a season but what is blindingly obvious is years of penny pinching and frustrating negotiations.

We are so lucky that Van De Sar and Ole are mates as we would not have a single signing this transfer window.

The question is what do we do? What is it that will hurt the glazers enough to make them do one? I'll be wearing my vintage kits (1990 away kit being my go to) this season
and not be buying another till something changes as I can't think of anything else.

Genuine question to the eds and anyone else - is there actually anything we can do to get the Glazers out?

Obi Chong Kenobi

1.) 21 Sep 2020 09:10:32
In the short term I’d say no. not buying kits etc makes us feel like we are doing something but unless it’s done by large numbers it won't affect them and they’d still get the Adidas money regardless. What I do think will eventually lead to them going is if we continue to struggle. Right now we are still living off past glories which means we still attract huge sponsorship deals, tv money etc, however if we keep slipping these will slowly dry up and revenue for the owners will decrease thus making us less profitable for them. The problem with this scenario is that they will bleed ever penny they can and will only leave when they can’t make any more. what sort of club will be left behind as a result? In the meantime we just have to hope the penny drops with someone up high and a structural change occurs. Wishful thinking I’d say.

2.) 21 Sep 2020 09:13:23
Getting a proper coach and backing him 100% (not referring to signings but give him time) would be the way forward.
I believe the current team is good enough even without new signings.

3.) 21 Sep 2020 11:58:12
"Backing" is not something our club does.

Do you think if Pep is appointed, they would allow him to sign half a dozen full backs like at City?

4.) 22 Sep 2020 10:11:53
Yes offer them £4 billion, that might do it.

I think we're done buying older players on high wages. He's a fantastic player but you'd imagine he'd demand Sanchez type salary. Just doesn't seem to go along with Solskjaer's plan.

I can understand why established players would want to leave or not join but surely this is the best time ever for u18s/ youth to be at the club.

Why go to other big clubs where you have almost no chance to play. If these reports are true, youth players seem to have way too much ego these days.

Why not work hard, establish yourself here and if we're still not a champions league team by the time your 23-25, then move on.

Just like Angel Gomes, he could have signed a contract this year and had so many games this season like Greenwood, McTominay and Williams. But instead he's had his head turned by Barcelona. Does he genuinely think he's going to get more gamtime there?

Does nothing but 3 goals, 6 assists (most in the club this season) tracks back, win free kicks, and goes past people.

James has been one of our most consistent performers this year with a goal or an assist every other game so fizzled out is a bit harsh.

What's wrong with giving Lindelof a new contract? He's everyone's first choice CB alongside Maguire.

Another 2 years without signing a first choice RW, not a bad prediction that with our transfer record 🤔.

I agree with you Shappy. I think context is an easy thing to loose. When you loose your previous two home games you have to go back to basics and that is what we did.

Everyone wants fast attacking football but sometimes you have to create something to build on. Every player in that back four needed to build their confidence and that is what this game provided.

After we lost against Tottenham I saw a lot of predictions saying we would loose all but Newcastle in this difficult run but we are doing far better.

I thought every player in the back 5 played fantastic and Telles looked great going forward and didn't do anything wrong defensively (but always hard to tell when someone plays WB) .

Wan Bissaka and Tuanzebe handled Mbappe and Neymar all game. If Tuanzebe can keep fit there's no doubting he should be keeping his place.

Totally agree with this. His head's clearly not in it atm. The problem is, the choices to replace him aren't great.

I imagine as last time his house was mobbed by fans angry the lack of transfers, he probably wants out before people realise that we will only be signing Beek this month!
