Eric Bailly out for 3-4 weeks with muscle injury confirmed . Feel sorry for the lad but its a business and might be wise to think about cashing in if he can't stay fit, obviously more to it than plain bad luck he might just be one of those injury prone players his whole career.

boyfromburrenway

1.) 21 Oct 2020 08:42:09
I said this over the summer, while I think Bailly is one of our better centre backs, the lad just can't stay fit.


2.) 21 Oct 2020 09:28:21
I don’t even think he’s that good. Bailly, Rojo and Jones all need to be shipped out and replaced. Promote Tuanzebe and one other, and buy another CB.

Tuanzebe last night was incredible. Now if he can stay fit!


3.) 21 Oct 2020 10:04:59
If Tuanzebe can stay fit then he can become a great option for us. Mengi also looks a super talent. Add that to Maguire and Lindelof (who aren't half as bad as most people seem to think) . Then we have some decent players to work with, if we play three at the back then Shaw looks well suited to the LCB role, maybe look to bring in another left footed CB to complete with him and add some balance to our defensive options.


4.) 21 Oct 2020 12:07:50
I’m with you Eric, I don’t see what Bailly has to offer us. It probably says more about the quality of our other CBs that Bailly is highly thought of.


5.) 21 Oct 2020 15:55:17
Really like Tuanzebe. But most importantly, we looked much more in control and focused. Lindelof looks much more assured when not playing with Maguire.

Maguire's positional sense is a nightmare which gives those around him more work to do. But when lindelof plays with a more competent centre half, like Tuanzebe last night, it just seems to work better.

But I'm sure Maguire will walk back in unfortunately.

And shappy, mengi, he is the one. Honestly, really excited to see him when he makes the step up. We shouldn't need to buy another CB with him around.


6.) 21 Oct 2020 17:12:13
Angel, Mengi looks potentially like a top level talent. However, that jump from academy to professional football is vast, and many highly talented players have fallen by the wayside.

To be honest if looking at our central options when playing with three at the back we have Lindelof, Maguire and Shaw as first choice and I think they work well together. Tuanzebe and Mengi coming through to challenge those in the first 11. What we really need is another left footed (or at least left sided) centre back to challenge Shaw.

When playing three at the back the RCB and the LCB need to be comfortable moving wider into areas more traditionally covered by the full back. Which is why ideally you want a left footed LCB.

There are some very good options out there who could be available. David Alaba, if he can't sort out a new deal with Bayern would excel in the role. While players like Pau Torres, Zagadou, Bastoni, Badiashile and Ndicka could all offer solid options as well, all being left footed.

While Mengi has played on the left of the centre back partnership and at LB on occasion, so while being right footed he could easily enough cover there.


7.) 21 Oct 2020 17:51:14
I'm still not convinced with Lindelof angel.
He has not improved over time.
He still gets bullied and struggles in one vs one situations.

I'd like us to go for a top class CB like Giminez or Upamecano, to compete with Maguire, Lindelof and Tuanzebe.


8.) 21 Oct 2020 23:37:53
Angel,

You say unfortunately our captain will walk straight back in but I thought he had a very good game against Newcastle, he won absolutely everything and looked so assured after he got his goal.


9.) 22 Oct 2020 09:40:11
I think a back three with quick players either side of Maguire suits him. It allows him to step forward into midfield with the ball with adequate protection either side of him.

While I think Lindelof has better defensive instincts than Maguire, Harry is far more physical and certainly stronger in the air.

While we played excellently against PSG one thing I did note was PSG never tried the aerial route. Which suited us as Shaw and Lindelof are okay at best in the air and Tuanzebe is untested at the highest level.

In the EPL Maguire might be the better option. In Europe Lindelof might be the better option.


10.) 22 Oct 2020 12:33:46
I don’t get this obsession with needing a left footed CB. Especially as most wingers are now inverted and cut inside, moving on to the defenders right foot. It seems mythical to me.


11.) 22 Oct 2020 23:41:45
Wazza, it's about balance and shape. I would agree in a back four a left footed CB is less important. However, when you play a back three the LCB will have to move out to cover the LB area of the pitch. Which is why being left footed in that situation is preferable.

While the current fashion for higher pressing means that centre backs need to play passes quicker while maintaining accuracy. If you are right footed playing on the left, your options for a quick pass are limited to those players playing on your left, either LB or LW. Whereas a left footed player has a wider area of the pitch to play passes quickly.

If you're right footed and you are pressed then you will have to turn so your left hand side is shielding the ball. If you do that on the left hand side of the pitch you are turning inward towards your goal and then your passing option is limited to your CB partner or maybe a longer more dangerous pass across your box to your RB. If they are marked then you are screwed.

The advantage of a right footed player on the right and a left footed player on the left. Is that the players can play passes more quickly off their stronger foot. While if they are pressed they will naturally, instinctively turn their body in such a way that they will play away from goal and away from the danger area.

That is why Pep has signed Lapotre and Ake, while Arteta has signed Gabriel, David Luis and Pablo Mari.

Tactical managers looking for the best "ideal" solution. It is why left footed CB's are highly prized.

It's why Bayern Munich paid €80m for Lucas Hernandez. While they also play Alaba at LCB often if Hernandez isn't available.

While it's perfectly possible to play a right footed player on the left, you statically get better results from playing a left footer.


12.) 23 Oct 2020 13:24:59
The players you list don't exactly pour glory over your argument Shappy. With the exception of Laporte, of course, but the rule of averages says one of them will be good.

Look where it got LVG, he's history and we've ended up with Rojo.

Think where we'd be if had just signed Koulibaly or Varane rather than try to over complicate things.

I can't remember any time in following football where a CB pairing has been successfully because one of the pair is left footed, and that's when wingers were proper wingers. In fact most to the best pairings have both been right footed.

It's a load of old bolloxolgy if you ask me.


13.) 23 Oct 2020 15:54:18
GDS, not convinced he deserves the spot to be honest given how he has been playing. And it's unfortunate that he will walk straight back into the team.


14.) 23 Oct 2020 15:54:52
TRD, I'm still much more convinced by Lindelof than I am Maguire.


15.) 24 Oct 2020 00:52:16
We’ve got a LCB. His name is Rojo. Argentina international. Didn’t work out. Injured a lot. Very rash. To be fair he would have been decent in a back 3 a few years back. Never really tried it.


16.) 24 Oct 2020 02:12:36
Eric,

He played there for the under 23s tonight who played a 3-4-3 formation. Williams played right wing back and Pellestri also played. A last minute penalty winner in a 2-1 win, impressive performance considering how young this team is.


17.) 24 Oct 2020 08:05:11
Is Rojo even in the Premier league squad?

{Ed047's Note - yes but not the Champions league squad


 

 

05 Oct 2020 13:50:52
Anyone know if Mike Smalling can play the piano? Fully expecting him to be unveiled at 7pm tonight in a fog of dry ice "like a new signing" a la stars in their eyes.

boyfromburrenway

1.) 05 Oct 2020 14:29:25
Isn't that the standard line they trott when someone comes back from a long-term injury, it like a new signing, and we still want more for Mike than we just paid for Telles.


 

 

19 Aug 2020 16:46:53
Dont know if anyone listened to the Manchester is Red podcast today -I listen via MEN as I live outside UK . Samuel Luckhurst was very pessimistic about signings -he thought maximum of 2 -I don't know how highly he is regarded in UK - Ed W. came in for a bit of stick again for his "one deal at a time" strategy for incomings and out goings - as mentioned today "transfer window is 10 weeks .3 weeks gone already and seems to be all in for Sancho" Brooks at Bournemouth is someone Ole is keen on.

boyfromburrenway

1.) 19 Aug 2020 18:05:07
As per most summer windows a player will suddenly come out of nowhere that we sign when everyone is looking at a different player and then it will be totally forgotten and talked about that we only do one deal at a time. So I’d imagine we might sign 1 or 2 players that haven’t been mentioned as well as a major signing.


 

 

08 Oct 2018 17:31:22
Big worry if Dave the Save is now reluctant to sign a new contract as is widely reported - can only think PSG would be viable destination today.

boyfromburrenway

1.) 08 Oct 2018 17:54:35
Real Madrid could still be a serious option. Navas isn't getting any younger and Coutois hasn't been great since the move. They could easily go back in for DDG either on a free or below his true worth when he only has a year left on his contact.


2.) 09 Oct 2018 08:42:24
Why would DDG sign a new contract?
We don't know where we are going.

He will be a huge loss if he leaves. But the way things are, I don't see any top player staying if given a chance to leave!


3.) 09 Oct 2018 09:45:13
Don’t see where DDG goes, Real are ok, Barcelona too, maybe Bayern or PSG but less competitive leagues, anywhere else even if we aren’t on top atm is a backward step.


4.) 09 Oct 2018 10:34:36
If he left who could blame him?
Probably the best keeper in world football for about 6 seasons now and what’s he got to show for it
If he’d got his move to Real Madrid he’d have a couple of CL winners medals in his back pocket . The way things look for us it’s hard to see us seriously challenging for league or CL for a couple of seasons at the very least.


5.) 09 Oct 2018 14:54:01
Juventus have Szczesny in goal. I appreciate he misses Spain, but that screams out at me.

Ultimately he has been a great player for us, not one of our fans should have any hard feelings if he leaves. He signed for a great club, he now plays for a club I barely recognise.

Wouldn't mind a little swapsy with Athletico for Oblak.


6.) 10 Oct 2018 19:41:05
As I understand it the contract is almost done, but he wants a clause that states he won't ever be used as a center back.


 

 

04 Aug 2018 20:56:27
Several reports saying TFM going out on loan to Hertha Berlin.

boyfromburrenway

1.) 04 Aug 2018 21:28:55
Would be a shame as would have like to have seen him get more minutes. Especially with Valencia out and Dalot an unknown quantity. Hope this doesn’t mean darmian won’t be moved on. Guess we will have to wait and see how this pans out.


2.) 04 Aug 2018 22:11:30
Surely means a Darmian is staying now. The Italian international could be a revelation in a 3-5-2, or indeed at right back used properly.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


3.) 04 Aug 2018 22:24:11
Intersting Ed. Darmian def leaving then.

Very, very busy time coming up with ins and outs.


4.) 05 Aug 2018 04:08:03
Tfm will benefit from that i hope he plays in his more natural position. Periera looks a better player following n his ex perience should have sent martial on loan last season we could have got back a much more rounded player.


5.) 05 Aug 2018 07:40:55
With darmian likely leaving and dalot and valencia injured i'm guessing we'll have to play tuanzebe lindeloff at right back?


6.) 05 Aug 2018 07:41:40
Darmian will go to Italy so there is still plenty of time to shift him out as the deadline only changed in the prem.

We may use him the first couple of games whilst we wait on Valencia and Dalot and then sell him.


7.) 05 Aug 2018 07:59:40
If a LB is signed, then we may even see Young shifted to the right with Shaw and the new LB on the left. Final few days may be exciting and nerve wrecking. Checking the sites every 15-20 mins.


8.) 05 Aug 2018 09:22:37
We have Valencia and Dalot, Jones, Bailly, Lindelof, new signing, Shaw and Young, enough to cover any formation without Darmian. Presuming Smalling and Rojo leave that is aswell.


9.) 05 Aug 2018 15:39:02
Personally I’d keep Smalling and sell rojo and add Toby. Job done at centre half.

Still think we need a real left back more than a right forward if we are to make another purchase.

If Pogba leaves we will most definitely need to replace him too.

Obviously it was the Lukaku to Madrid for €102million so Inter can pay off the debt to United story.

Either that or the stadium valuation story from the Championship, could be a slow burner that one.


 

 

05 Mar 2021 06:26:57
A few results we didn't want last night. apart from the obvious 3 points teams gain, a win is a win and invariably boosts the confidence.

Chelsea, Everton, Spurs and Arsenal not so far away and on an upward curve

Lpool as well of course could get top 4.Leicester could pick up again.

City up next then a resurgent WHU. 36 points to play for and again we don't make anything easy for ourselves . We could be in a very different position 3 weeks from now.

We are in a fight for a top 4 spot and I wouldn't like to call it.

Any Forest fans on here on anyone watching the Forest games ? James Garner seems to be MOM almost every game - We can all be guilty of building young lads up but Forest fans seem to be really impressed, one on twitter saying best midfielder he has seen at Forest in decades after last nights goal and performance?

They’re my local side so I take an interest. He’s the stand out player and has been absolutely excellent each time I’ve watched him. Tidy on the ball, gets stuck in and has quality on the ball. Looks a player and far more ability than Fred.


2.) 28 Feb 2021 14:34:09
Glad to hear that Fresh.
He has been rated highly for past few years.
Looks like now he is displaying it on the pitch.


 

 

31 Jan 2021 08:27:47
1 goal scored against top 6 opposition this season. Once again the team looks happy with a draw after 30 minutes and Ole seems paralysed to make a decision on subs-we see a team there for the taking and we don't go for it. for at least 15 minutes give it a proper go see what happens . no, not this managers way. he talks the talk but when it comes to go full attack mode different story.

One striker looking full of confidence is the kid Hughill -get him on the bench . a la Macheda.

We are what we are. a top 4 contender, no more no less. I stick with my prediction before a ball was kicked. top 4 finish and a trophy and to be within 10 points of eventual champions which is progress.

boyfromburrenway

1.) 31 Jan 2021 08:41:59
Must have watched a different game to you because from minute 30-45 we were absolutely dominant and they hardly touched the ball.

We let them back in it in the 2nd half but still controlled parts of the game.

It’s another “what if” result.

We are still overachieving this season, but if we are to really push on we need to be beating mid-table teams like Sheff Utd and Arsenal.


2.) 31 Jan 2021 09:02:44
We are bang average at best.


3.) 31 Jan 2021 09:06:46
It was a dreadful game and we was also dreadful to watch, I dony see how we was dominant at all, the only team looked like scoring was Arsenal. Like Keano said, look scared to try and win games now we was in a good position, I'm afraid we will be hanging onto top 4 if we carry on in this vein.

{Ed047's Note - Wazza’s on the windup! 🤣🤣🤣


4.) 31 Jan 2021 09:06:55
Agree that we’re currently a top 4 side who lack the consistency of City but, with 3 signings in tbe summer (imo Rice, Torres/ White, Sancho) we should be challenging for the title, no excuses.

Will then be up to the manager to make the rest happen.


5.) 31 Jan 2021 09:28:36
Over achieving? 🤣🤣🤣 I wonder where we would be if we spent some money. 🤣🤣🤣.


6.) 31 Jan 2021 09:31:04
Not at all 047. I really enjoyed towards the end of the first half, we were in complete control. So I can see why you wouldn’t have liked it as it must have been frustrating.

The 2nd half was more even. Lacazette was unlucky and Cavani missed a sitter.

2-1 to Utd would’ve been a fair result based on the performances in both halves.

{Ed047's Note - you really were watching a different game, what did you do with your complete control in those 15 minutes. 🤣🤣

Honestly there was only one team going to win and deserved to win it and it wasn’t you.

I genuinely wasn’t concerned about you scoring as our defence had been solid, it was just a case of whether we could score mate and sadly Auba, Saka and Tierney were big misses.

You have to be the worst of the current top six when it comes to team cohesion and style of play.

Again Fernandes goes missing and so does your team.


7.) 31 Jan 2021 09:43:22
Wazza were you watching a replay from 20 years ago🤣🤣.


8.) 31 Jan 2021 10:22:19
Clearly i’m in the minority here, but I thought we played well at times and particularly in the first half. Cavani doesn’t usually miss chances like the one he had in the 2nd half. I think we deserved a goal and thought we played much better as a team than we did against Sheff Utd.


9.) 31 Jan 2021 10:29:02
Another woeful performance to add to list from the last 7-8 years. Most people are now happy to accept mediocrity from this once magnificent club. We have stunk the place out for the last 7 years and it won’t change until the club is overhauled from top to bottom.


10.) 31 Jan 2021 10:31:34
The only thing to take away from yesterday was how much i felt sorry for the groundsmen having to prepare that pitch for that dross!


11.) 31 Jan 2021 10:33:55
We went out not to lose as Ole does in most games where he fears the opposition. Dominate, I didn’t see that. It was an awful watch and there is a what if. What if we had a progressive attack minded manager? As the Ed says and Neville is now saying it too we have no coached pattern just rely on being defensive with occasional pieces of brilliance. United DNA where it stands for Do Not Attack.


12.) 31 Jan 2021 11:24:23
Im with Wazza on this, and can't really understand what game Ed watched.

I wouldn't say we dominated, but we were closer to win. Generally boring game, with few chances to score on both sides.

Cavani missed not one, but two clear cut chances, while best chance Arsenal had was that free kick. I was never worried they would score. Most of their "chances" were forced shots that went very wide.

Rashford, again, was pretty bad, and deserved to be subbed much earlier. I was sad that Greenwood didn't get at least 30min.

{Ed047's Note - it’s your opinion and you’re welcome to it mate but for a side supposedly challenging at the top and us having a weakened side you were woeful.

It was there for us to win and we didn’t. That’s life. The free kick wasn’t our only clear cut chance.

I’d have no problems putting my hand up and admitting you were the better side, but you weren’t.


13.) 31 Jan 2021 11:49:48
Both teams were poor imo, but we had better clear cut chances.

The lack of pattern in play hurt us because the forward line were devoid of ideas.


14.) 31 Jan 2021 11:54:49
How many saves did arsenal keeper make in this "period of dominance? " how many shots did we have or how many on target, how many corners in that period - we looked like 2 timid teams afraid to lose .

Against Arsenal home and away, city, chelsea, -we have seen a team too afraid to release the shackles and attack. you don't win much playing like that over 38 games. We are a top 4 side capable of going on good and bad runs, nothing more at the moment.


15.) 31 Jan 2021 12:08:02
We seem to be getting worse

Player ratings :-
DDG 7 - did nothing wrong but that is not necessarily a plus
AWB 6 - strangely out of sorts - made some timely interceptions and had a weak shot in the first half
Lindelof 6- Okay - fairly steady game but that is about it.
Mcguire 6 - Okay but seems to get caught out by anyone attacking at pace
Shaw 6 - played Okay -but had little support when attacking down the flanks
Mctominay - no rating as went off early
Fred 7 - Played well -still very determined
Pogba 5 - Not really an influence - wastes a lot of possession still
Martial 5 - Not really in the game unless he plays against a weak defence he gets caught in the mire.
Fernandes 6 - one or 2 shots and free kicks but not playng to his earlier form
Cavani 6 - involved in 2 chances in the second half -but no goals
Rashford 5 - out of sorts - not happy in the position on the right flank.
All in all we were disappointing and could not win a match which we should have won. Not title contender form.


16.) 31 Jan 2021 12:10:02
Wazza. Cavani misses lots of chances. Always has done. A bit like Andy Cole. His strength is that he gets a lot of chances due to his sixth sense and movement. He will always miss chances.
Arsenal had 2 chances just as good and both were goal bound except for great blocks by awb and maguire.
I'm bit sure either team was any better or any worse than the other. It was there to win fit both teams but neither were capable.

{Ed047's Note - he missed a shed load in a champions league game against us too when he was with PSG.


17.) 31 Jan 2021 12:23:56
Ed047

I don't think either team was any good in an attacking sense. Both sides did have decent chances but hardly caused real problems for either keepers. I don't think either side deserved anything other than a draw.

{Ed047's Note - yes, no way am I saying it was a great game but I definitely feel it was one we looked more likely to win.

It was interesting reading the player ratings on the BBC website in the report about the game and Shaw was your best player with a rating lower than Nketiah who came on as a sub.


18.) 31 Jan 2021 14:45:47
We weren't that good ofcourse Ed047 but we were the better of the two and the expected goals of the match were something like 0,5-1,5. I agree we weren't world beaters and if you had Tierney Saka and Oba you could have won the match but yesterday we had the better chances.

{Ed047's Note - personally aside from the chances at the end of the game we pretty much nullified you. Holding won everything in the air and the whole game I wasn’t concerned about you scoring.

For me we were more dangerous, albeit in a poor game and could and should have taken all 3 points.

It was only when the teams came out and I knew that we were missing those 3 that I was concerned we wouldn’t score.


19.) 31 Jan 2021 17:09:21
I would agree that Arsenal team was bit weaker, missing those few players, and I was happy when I saw the line ups. That said, you can never know what would happen if they played. They might lose crucial ball, like Bruno did for us in some previous game, and you would concede. Auba isn't in a great form anyway. They could have scored perhaps, but we can't know that.

I am listening, what other chances did Arsenal have? The one where Willian was blocked? Sure, Rashford had similar position, but didn't react the way he should. Smith Rowes shot? Wasnt clear cut chance at all, and De Gea defended it easily. What about Freds shot then, to parry that one? Bruno also had a decent shot, which Luiz blocked. Possesion? Was on our side. Corners? Same. Shots? Equal, if you don't count blocked shots.

The game was poor, we didn't "dominate", but in no way were you closer to scoring. Both teams passed the ball backwards a bit too much.

Im old enough to remember Ted McDougall, (ask yer dad) Peter Davenport, Terry Gibson, Alan Brazil . all strikers we pounced on after a good season who bombed with us.

When I see folk raving about DCL, Haaland, Ollie Watkins, the lad from Newcastle who trips over his own feet most games but they love him .

I think step back let's see how good they are next year, can they progress, are they as hungry? Maybe Cavani signing helps Ole with those decisions.

Thanks ED002 appreciated as always-especially during the holidays. All the best in 2021.

On a side note we have a very good player in DVDB, frustrating to see a young talented lad get messed about -no other word for it - better coaches would find a place for him at Utd.

Sancho broke quarantine earlier in the year to go to UK for a haircut apparently, left out of squad in last 3 games due to challenge and is at a party in UK. might not be the best role model if true.

His injury record makes Louis Saha, Owen Harreaves and Phil Jones look like the X Men -sadly.

If you are a defender with pace then you won't be too worried about Martial. He doesn't do headers, rarely does tap ins, not much movement, isn't very pro active in and around the box, he won't suddenly surprise you by posing up where you don't expect him, and if you shut him up early he sulks himself out of the game.

dont know if Cavani is staying or going but when people talk of intelligent midfielders to pick a pass to the runs of Cavani I would love DVB (Ajax version) to start in midfield.

I only we go for it and play as well as we know we can when we are on song.

What I can't stand is the build up "the lads are up for it " " there s a buzz in training, we all want these big games " etc etc etc. then we go out and can't string 3 passes together.

We need a trophy!

Ive been saying Arsenal for EL since group stages when they were scraping through games looking lost-I think its got their name on it. Just a feeling, hope i'm wrong of course.

Ole and the team talk the talk but don't seem able to motivate themselves for the must win games.

Met my hero Bruce Springsteen and very nice he was too. But take your point, Caolan, in their respective fields Giggsy, Best, Rooney Mike Tyson, Van Morrison, countless others have that "flawed genius " stamp, probably better revered from a distance.
