    Not sure I'd agree with that but each to their own.

    Watched game today and if De Boer keeps doing things in same fashion,he will turn one of best home grounds against him and that will lead to quick sacking. If that happens, we should pull TFM out because in that scenario crowd might hate everything related to De Boer, noticed today that crowd really was unhappy with the way how they play from the back etc.

    Well, let's not freak out too early. It can't be easy transitioning from a manager like Allardyce to one like DeBoer. It's like the fall of the Berlin Wall. Bit of a shock to the system, but Eastern Europe will recover.

    Not that high on forum i went to check. Then again in most posts they focused more on their own senior CBs, they were way worse then him.

    Its not freaking out, in some periods it looked like fans desire vs manager`s orders. Fans wanting them to speed up and go long, while clearly players were under orders to build up slowly from the back.

    If they win a few games, they'll chill. Players are employing a radically different method and will take time to transition. If results remain poor there will be a problem, obviously.

    Well i seen a little of him today, looked ok. Strong Pacey Nice touch at times. Did well i though especially as it was his first game with a bunch of lads he knows for 2 days.

    I know its just the start and theres a long way to go. But that tackle and the speed to make up the ground, TFM, take a bow son. Its only a flash but hopefully its a view of things to come. Going to get games and if he keeps playing and improving like this he will be with us very soon or it will be Michael Keane II at very least.

    Delighted for him!

    Tomkins, just terrible. Was TFM injured? I've only seen motd, not sure why the change was made.

    I agree we need to look at the situation if de Boer makes a swift exit again. However one thing that helps TFM in this situation is his versatility, another manager could use him elsewhere of course.

    That recovery was amazing, he ran from the wrong side and still made the tackle!

    Watched the first half only and Crystal Palace was terrible. Their players (all of them) weren't discipline enough and looked like headless chicken with 343. The manager is so clueless in his first game. Fosu Mensah just do what he usually does, good tackle, good pace and strength, nothing special to show that he's ready mentally. But the most important IMO he gets a lot of minutes.

    Brilliant recovery tackle. Hopefully De Baor stays in the job long enough to get him the games

    timo is more about power and pace or in an easy word a better athlete while axel seems to have a better overall package as a modern footballer.

    if we are going to field our strongest under 21 team maybe tuanzebe-mensah would be our first choice CB and they probably pretty much compliment each other.

    long term or at senior level it is not going to happen. timo's best chance of becoming a united regular is at RB / reserve CB while axel might have a better chance than timo to be a regular at CB.

    think there will be space for both of them in the first team.

    People might say he's an all brawl but no brain type but his pace really does make a big difference even at top level plus he clearly can play. Today is the first time he played CB after a long while plus he did not even train with them enough. Gonna be massive.

    His acceleration and power over the first 50 mtrs or so is something else.
