Apparently arsenal have been offered Di Maria, no idea if it's true, is there any interest from United and would that be followed up with a bid if he were to be made available?

Any truth in these Mata to Barca stories? Or just a slow news week and the press kicking up a fuss?

What did people think of Telles in his first PL showing?

I know the overall team performance was not top-notch but considering he has only played two games for us and has been excluded from training due to CV for a while I thought he looked good.

Noticeably his willingness to stay wide and overlap down the left and also his not always successful but attempted progressive forward passing looked promising.

I think with some more time he is going to prove a shrewd acquisition although it will interesting to see how he performs when given and more thorough testing defensively.

Early days but good early signs.

He has an opportunity now to make that position his own. He looks a lot more dynamic than Shaw. He’s got goals and assists in his locker which we are crying out for right now so hopefully he builds on a decent performance last weekend.

I think Telles had a decent outing in his PL debut. He does stay out wide and makes those overlapping runs. Although, there was one thing that i want to point out. There were several occasions when Telles had made that run to put in a cross but the ball never came to him, it was recycled backwards or towards the middle of the park. Sorry to say but most of the times it was Rashford doing that.


3.) 24 Nov 2020 14:40:29
Yes Shan. The more they play together, more they can understand each other's strength.


4.) 24 Nov 2020 15:09:32
Agreed TRD. My concern was that its not something new. Shaw too made some runs but again ball was played centrally.


5.) 24 Nov 2020 16:04:04
Rashford plays better on the right.
He has been doing this cutting inside and passing to the centre in a crowded space far too much, then the ball goes wide right to AWB and nothing comes off it.


6.) 24 Nov 2020 16:11:11
Shan,

The left back making a run on the overlap shouldn’t get the ball every time anyway or it becomes a bit obvious, that run pulls the full back out to mark and then there is naturally more space inside, so there is no problem with the off the ball run creating space.

Rashford was poor at the weekend and needs to be more clinical but I have no problem with him cutting inside when the full back has taken his marker away.


7.) 24 Nov 2020 18:24:02
I get you GDS. A team whose parts are playing their roles perfectly would understand that game plan. But how many times have we had an attack from the left this season? You could literally count it on your fingers. As Rohan says it has almost become a norm with Rashford. You know he will cut inside 9 times out of 10 and all the FB needs to do is cut that out and Rashford becomes null.
There is something wrong with Rashford since Feb. Either he is still injured, his head turned, being selfish or simply being poor.


8.) 24 Nov 2020 18:33:44
He did ok in an awful team performance. Nobody played well really apart from ddg.
Maybe he will imorove again tonight and with every game he plays. He has not played much recently.

Please tell me these rumors about LvG wanting Robben aren't true. He's a good player but getting on it bit and hits the deck too easy.

jd91

1.) Always scoring against us lol and better then any other winger we have


2.) I can see some logic behind it. If we go for the 4-3-3 which I'm sure we will we will need goal scoring wingers - Robben is very much that. He plays off the right which is Januzaj's best position, both of whom have similar characteristics. I think it would be the ideal player for Januzaj to learn from. Add to that his connection with RVP and possibly Strootman I think it would do wonders for the team.


3.) The problem is
1. Robben is 30 plays for a top team that will win there league and has a very good chance of winning the ECL. 3 months ago he was happy enough and the club was happy enough to give him a new contract.
Why would either robben or munich suddenly change there mind?
2. Adan would learn from him? I think you could argue his progress would actually be blocked.
3. Strootman is injured with a serious knee injury


4.) LVG will have plenty of chance to chat to him about it, he will know if he wants the move or not. And as players get older they need rotating. Adnan would have plenty of chances.


5.) Fresh
So is this the road we want to go down, rather than give youth a chance sign 30 year old superstars on big wages.
Over the next 2 year adan should be making that position his own he will struggle to do that with robben ahead of him.


6.) We can't afford to give youth a chance any more. We need to play the best players in their best positions. We screwed up last season because Moyes didn't know who to play and where to play them, once season of tinkering and it messes a lot up.

Robben looks head and shoulders the best player on the pitch every time I see him play. He would be great for 2-3 years whilst Janujaz matures. Perfect acquisition if we can get him.


7.) Arjen Robben is EXACTLY what we need.


8.) Beast
I couldn't disagree more .
Do we really want to turn into a team that can't afford to give youth a chance.
The type of team that doesn't build a team but buys established star names .
Buys 30 year olds on there way down on mega contracts before playing young players with the talent of adan.

Robben is exactly what we need?
Really we need a rw?
Or r we just buying any superstar that is available.
Whos next cole for lb
Xavi cm.


9.) Gagus
That last bit wasnt aimed at u


10.) Lets be honest we would all prefer a Reus, Draxler, Pedro etc, but if LvG does in fact want Robben and MU end up buying him, I wouldn't be too disappointed. Will BM sell? Well I am sure the editor has mentioned that BM would sell Robben. I am sure he would consider a move to MU. Question is does LvG want Robben?

Strootman has to be unlikely. He is injured. Is he good enough for what we need? I am not so sure. Personally I would want to see us aim higher than him. But again it comes down to what LvG wants to do. I'm sure we will sign Dutch players under LvG, but I am not sure they will be Robben and Strootman. We will know more soon enough.


11.) Syd
Would bayern sell?
Well every player has a price, especially when that player is 30. It would also give them money to go out and buy reus, draxler, pedro etc


12.) Jred, I could be wrong, but I am sure the editor said last summer and recently that many players will leave BM and he could be one of them. In a perfect world I'd go for Reus and Kroos, not Robben and Strootman.


13.) Syd
The idea of buying 30 year old "stars" is wrong imo.
In 2 years time they will need replaced will of cost a fortune in wages and we will be no better of than we are now .


14.) Yeah, I'm all for 22-26 year olds to be fair. let's see what LvG wants to do and hopefully pretty sharpish. I get the feeling Shaw is soooo close, I don't want us spending too much time on each signing. We have too much to do this summer, no time for penny pinching IMO.


15.) Jred - Don't get me wrong I am all for giving youth a chance if they are deserving and if we are secure. However we are currently in a whirpool that needs to be swam out of, only world class signings can do that at the moment.

Hernandez, Welbeck, Celeverly, Jones, Smalling, Rafael, Zaha, Nani, Anderson, they are the youth we have gambled on in recent years, where are they now? None of them have developed that's for sure.

We can only go for youth when we have a world class squad to break them in and to learn from. It isn't 1992 anymore, the game is global, the opposition is far tougher and unfortunately the youth we have are not delivering.

I have confidence in Janujaz. Others have it in Powell & Wilson and a few others (haven't seen enough personally), but we play 2-3 of them against top 10 and we get beat. We need to buy world class then concentrate on youth after, once the ship has settled in 2-3 years.

So Robben is perfect for me yes. Youth can be bled in over the next few years, but now we need the best or we fall further behind.


16.) I know, jred.


17.) Beast
Robben is 30 and struggles with injuries .
You want to buy a top player get one that could be here for the next 7/8 years that will also continue to improve.
Reus, pedro, sanchez, draxler.

We should of signed robben 10 years ago we never and that ship has now sailed imo.

You can buy top players and build for the future at the same time

I thought Greenwood looked a little too eager to impress last night, snatching at his chances and his decision making was a little wide of the mark.

He is still the youngster I am most excited about since Rashford broke through and my ill-placed faith in Januzaj!

Let's hope he works his way back to full fitness quickly and regains that icy cold finishing he showed so often last season.

I really enjoyed Cavani's performance, I had my reservations about him when announced but from what I've seen so far of him I think he could make his time with us a success.

Albeit a couple of years past his best, he is tireless with his work rate, makes intelligent and unrelenting off-the-ball runs and in the first half, yesterday showed plenty of deft touches when receiving the ball with his back to goal and knocking it back to others to recycle and move the play up the pitch.

I would guess he is still a little short of full match fitness and there is more to come.

There will be far sterner tests than this was but I am quietly optimistic Cavani could have a similar impact to Ibrahimovic as opposed to Falcao.

So if I am reading that correctly 002 DvdB's team are already looking to move him on to another club a few months after signing for us? Obviously, that is pretty damning for the club but also surely shows his team to also be pretty flippant in their decision making?

jd91

{Ed002's Note - Donny van de Beek has been offered to Real Madrid and will be offered to Barcelona due to a lack of a plan or direction at MU. But both clubs have moved on and unless Manchester United would accept a long-term payment plan there would not be the spare money to buy him. If Pogba leaves there will be space - but MU seem intent on holding him hostage. I would not expect DvdB to move.}
