I have a baaaaaad feeling about this, Chewie
This is the real world and elite professional sport at that. If someone replaces you and does not deserved to be dropped you should not automatically get your spot back. It's not like he is being sacked for taking paternity leave.That's not how paternity leave works. You don't punish people for taking it.
He should start or be benched based on merit, nothing else.
In which case the decision is based on merit, which is fine. If Henderson deserves to start then Henderson deserves to start.This is the real world and elite professional sport at that. If someone replaces you and does not deserved to be dropped you should not automatically get your spot back. It's not like he is being sacked for taking paternity leave.
Lets pray it is. The sight of “McFred” in the starting lineup kills any excitement I have for the game because I know it’s gonna be a chore.Hopefully that leaked lineup is true and there is no McFred starting this game.
Oh yes - Danny Welbeck with 75 goals in his entire career at the age of 30 is a better striker than Martial. It's ok to criticize without being deludedWe will probably play Martial, just because he's too shit to play for France.
Brighton have a much much much better striker in Welbeck.
That said, Pogba and Fernandes will give our team too much quality. 3-0 to United
You don't think the players find out who is playing that late...do you? They'll know the day before if not earlier then that. Maybe this is a joke that's gone well over my tiny head!Why's Ole letting the players know 3.5 hours before who's playing?! Surely keep it until an hour before so everyone stays focused and mentally prepared.
I don’t see the point of designated squad numbers other than just to sell shirts. Just do 1-11. If your favourite player is a starter chances are he’s gonna wear the same number every game anyway so you can still buy his shirt.Pedantic but it’s a good point. Why put Henderson at the head and the numerical order the rest? There’s zero logic to it. It’s like they’ve gone “well he’s definitely the goalkeeper so he’s first but I’m stumped on the rest“
