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.

That second goal conceded felt like a year it was in the box for that long! I have never seen 6 players freeze because a basic AF attacker had the ball. Martial was particularly culpable. Actually, I think we'd have been better off with 10 men today, I just haven't a clue what's happened to him this year. Would much rather Mason through the middle.

People will say their goal shouldn't have stood (which I agree with) but still DDG has to be stronger.

It's still 2 steps forward and one step back for me instead of the other way round but that was a shocking performance.

I think initial stages mason was not doing particularly bad. He had a scuffed shot, and brilliant turn where he shot just at the Keeper.
He was the best in terms of rash, him and martial. And Ole subs mason off, we lost any little balance we had on RW, Ole doesn't help greenwood at all, for me greenwood never gets subbed today.

2.) 28 Jan 2021 07:19:19

Questions need to be asked of Ole, keeping Martial on beyond anyone else, why? What are his tactics against a team that sits back? Why after two years can we not even see a hint of those tactics?

3.) 28 Jan 2021 08:09:29
one word, complacency.



18 Dec 2020 09:13:38
Not going to analyse last night's performance too much but I've got to say that 3rd goal was risky, arrogant and damn right disrespectful. Everything I want to see from a United team.

We've seen Pogba get caught in that position time and time again trying too much this season but when it comes off it looks AMAZING. The whole move oozed class.

As much as I'd like us to steam roller every team we play. The unpredictability of this team actually adds to the excitement and tension of our games.

As for the questions on Solskjaer's style, I think it may be giving the opposition a false sense of security 😂

I was yelling at the tele because Pogba gave away the ball thrice in a minute before that third goal. h had an OK game to be fair, but he still takes too long on the ball and can be caught in possesion far too often for a player in his position and of his capability. It tells me its an issue with awareness of his surroundings, which is criminal for someone playing in midfield.
Love or hate Ole, he has given us moments in the last 2 years, that has reminded us what it felt like to support the club when it was in its prime. Nights like Paris, thrashing city, playing with arrogance, fast, incisive, edge o the seat football.

2.) 18 Dec 2020 12:19:20
Pogba missed more or less a full season with injury, then had C.V. which he has said took a big toll on his fitness.
But the lad is improving the more he plays. I don't think he will reach the levels many set him but if he stays clear oc injury I can see him having a big season for us .

3.) 18 Dec 2020 12:45:20
tbh ryans left foot, I am not a big fan of pogba but in his defense and others it seems like they are reluctant to play the ball to AWB. The kid can tackle and that's it . any attempt to do anything else is a disaster: he isn't a good crosser, not a great passer unless its sideways or backwards and that's probably why we don't see the best in greenwood as he has to collect the ball too deep and make all the play himself. He really doent give oozes of confidense when he plays.



09 Dec 2020 11:08:12
I know the biggest 'shock' and let down yestersay was our inability to defend crosses.

Simple, playground basics like looking over your shoulder to see who's behind you when a cross is coming in is so basic it shouldn't need coaching at this level but neother Wan Bissaka or Luke Shaw seem to be able to do it.

Yesterday, strangely felt like de ja vu of the Brighton game. Simple balls to the back stick were not dealt with then but we got away with it because it was Brighton (to an extent) . RB Leipzig did the exact same thing and punished us.

Surely between now and then this must have been worked on in the training ground but clearly not.

How often do you think we train? We have about 3 days between each game and most of this will be rest days, it’s quite clear the players aren’t working on tactics in training.

2.) 09 Dec 2020 12:57:50
Ole said before the game that the players had a cool down session and a walk through the tactics on Monday and tue morn.
Are you suggesting that he changed the formation and didn't train on the tactic. That would be even more negligent.

3.) 09 Dec 2020 13:54:38
The most impressive thing I thought about Lepzig is that they managed a 3-3 draw with Bayern, after resting a few players, and also managed to dominate us tactically.

So it is possible to adjust your tactics in a short space of time to suit the opposition.

4.) 09 Dec 2020 15:08:02

Yes I am suggesting that, did that performance feel like we did any work on the formation?

5.) 09 Dec 2020 17:16:52
Ole said differently pre match. Maybe he is a liar as well as a crap manager.

6.) 10 Dec 2020 00:17:04
He also said pre match that we wouldn’t be playing for a draw and then played a back 5 and 2 DM’s so think we can take everything he said pre match with a pinch of salt.



08 Dec 2020 22:52:10
Not going to lie, we clearly got it wrong today. I had no issues with the formation today, just the personnel. Matic really stood out as a player that couldn't press, or get up to the speed of the game. It really showed how much you need a player like Fred on a game like today. He makes other plays (e. g McTominnay) look good.

I reckon pogba was going to start if it hadn’t been for last nights news. Now that isn’t an excuse for the result. The system didn’t work at all for me- wan bissaka was hung out to dry as angelino had no one forcing him back. They’d overload on one side then switch it through sabitzer. It was too easy.

2.) 09 Dec 2020 09:35:48
Says it all that after ll the money spent and players bought we struggled last night because Fred was missing.



03 Dec 2020 12:02:06
I think if there's one player that splits opinion other then Paul Pogba it's got to be Martial.

I've always been a big fan of his and he showed his quality last season but you have to question his mentality under pressure.

Any time there is competition for his place he seems to wilt and as a CF at a club like ours it just isn't right. Since Cavani's come in he seems to be struggling, thrashing at things in a very un-Martial way.

Hope it's a blip, as on form he's my favourite player to watch but does he have the mentality to fight for his place in the team?

Obi Chong Kenobi

1.) 03 Dec 2020 13:24:22
hes is lazy as F.

doenst make runs and is poor at decision making.

2.) 04 Dec 2020 11:02:29
Sorry but that's bs bolger, there were a number of times when Martial was back in our penalty area helping out Telles. Whilst I can't defend his finishing of late, the other parts of his game have been very good linking up well, dribbling past players and his decision making to look up and pass when team-mates are in better positions. Let's not go overboard.

Agree to an extent TrueRedDevil, but Gabriel will be cut price when Arsenal and their 'fantastic style of play' get relegated. So worth a punt.

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.

Schmeichel, Stam, Keane and Rooney.

I loved Ferdinand but Stam was terrifying and was quicker then he looked. Get caught in a Schmeichel Stam sandwich and you're game is over 😂

Question is how much would those 4 cost now? 350-400m.

Sancho and Varane for me. We need a Right footed RW to help spread widen the pitch so Sancho fills that gap.

And Varane is a vastly upgrade on any CB we have, think Pau is possibly a better option just because of injury record.

Wow, a balanced post! Really good to read.

RW has been our biggest problem in attack since even the Moyes era. Am worried that having spent a relatively high fee on Diallo that'll be it but if we do sort it we would see the best from our other strikers as well. Fingers crossed.

Rashford is a strange one this season. He had a shoulder injury at the start of the season which he was playing through.

I wonder if he still has it as he doesn't seem to want to run past people as we know he can. But he still notched an assist yesterday with a fine pick out to Pogba so can't knock him too hard.

Don't like to disagree with Eds but saying Bruno wouldn't cope with the physical demands I'm not sure about.

He never stops running for a second, one of the hardest working players we've had since Park Ji Sung, except Park would get rested quite often.

Obi Chong Kenobi

{Ed001's Note - I agree he is, I didn't mean he couldn't do the amount of running, it is the mobility to reach position quickly enough I am referring to. De Bruyne is quicker, he can get about the field more quickly, while Bruno lacks a little in that regard. He is no slouch but he is not quite pacey enough for the high press teams. That is why he was available for you to buy, that was the worry teams had about him, could he keep up with the pace of the game? He is quick mentally but that doesn't help when the ball is moved quickly around the way City and Liverpool do with the quick switch, unless players have pace they can get left behind. He has shown he is quick enough and physical enough for just about any other team though.}
