    Our Pat, if you don´t like anything coming from the club at least listen to what he has to say.
    Fully agree.

    Basically says we should stop constantly bashing our managers and expect the players to take responsibility instead, support Ole, stop bashing De Gea because he's been our best player for 4 years, stop bashing Pogba because he's our #1 goalscorer and turn our attention to our non-scoring attackers instead and explained why he distanced himself from the club a bit after his PSG reaction caught so much flak. And the standard stuff about how we will bounce back, how people hate United etc.. Oh and he said it's just his opinion and he can be wrong. That's it from the top of my head :lol:

    Speaking sense about Pogba being our top goalscorer.

    Also about the fact we have to back Ole now, as fans. He's got the job. Let's back him.

    He didn't mention the board though...

    Edit:

    "I've been watching games with Ed (Woodward)."
    That explains why no criticism of the board or CEO. He's missing out the main factor in our demise.

    I fully agree with the guy obviously but one of the last sentences "I sacrificed my life and everything". I never get that when footballers say that. Its not like we send him to Syria and he came back without his legs or something is it.

    Not really since half his goals come from penalties. Take those away and he's what? Not even top 3 I reckon.

    Well said, Paddy.

    If that doesn't propel you to the top of the list of ex-players in line for the DoF role at the club, nothing ever will.

    That's because Rashford, Lingard and Lukaku are absolutely garbage.

    Im glad one trick pony Rashford has picked up criticism, he's got worse the longer he's been here.

    The signing of Alexis really is turning the screw here. Damning from Evra.

    And I like that he has called out Rashford and Lingard and Lukaku.

    Why can't he just come train with us

    Why should they be taken away? You man weren't counting when Gerrard had 10 penalties in 2014 or when Lampard had scored average 4/5 pens a year. Or when Harry Kane had bagged nothing but pens to win golden boot of the world cup.
    it's embrassing for the attackers that CM has outscored them all. His assists alone will have been multiplied if we had some competent strikers.

    I think the little dig he gave the club about United coming under pressure from PSG and some politicians after his celebrations at the final whistle in Paris, were quite damning. Sounded like Ed buckled under the pressure and wants him to release an apology and he just said, "nah I'll just walk away from the club and put distance between us if you are gonna through me under the bus like that."
    That's how it sounded to me anyway, maybe I read too much into it

    Because had those penalties been given to any of our attackers he wouldn't have outscored them. Those goals were practically gifted to him. Most of our attackers would have put those away. IIRC he's missed a fair few as well. The rest of the squad just weren't gifted those chances. He's not our main man when it comes to goals from open play. Goals scored is a misleading stat.

    I think his dedication to United almost cost him his marriage...reading between the lines, he said he left for personal reasons, and in the interview he remarks about the "United, Kids, Wife" flag and that it does not make him laugh

    Pogba is not judged on goals to exonorating his performances simply because he is the too scorer makes little sense to me. And I'm not one to pick on Pogba.

    Yep. The forwards have been disgraceful. Martial hasn't even come close to what he did in his first season, never mind improve. Lukaku has gone backwards from his last season at Everton & first season here where he got 26-27 goals. Then we have the likes of Rashford and Lingard who have never achieved 15 goals in all competitions in a season. Nowhere near good enough.

    If I remember correctly his wife initially joined him in Manchester, she wasn't happy, was far from family and friends, so she went back to Paris. Evra was supposed to leave the club after a certain time but when he had the opportunity, he didn't and his wife wasn't really happy about it. He also cheated on her though. IIRC the same thing was true for Vidic.

    Whatever else, he's a clever man.

    Wasn't surprised to hear him say in the Sky interview that he had talked about a role at the club (even if he ultimately wasn't able to commit to it). Given he also seems to have a good relationship with Woodward he would have seemed like an obvious choice if we're looking to get more ex-players involved behind the scenes. Oh well.

    Pogba was our main penalty taker. And he missed quite a few, and these ain't the type of cup final penalty. Trying act all mighty on such ground and he would end up with protest form other players. He is taking penalty regardless of failure this season is not due to him being the best at it, but the friendship and respect from other players. It's used to be change of taker after a failed penalty the previous seasons.

    Love Evra but as you can see, he is the king of banter, not necessarily without blindsight.
