    :lol: that's why opinions are subjective. I think the away kit is an instant classic and absolutely banging.
    Yeah see, prior to seeing the kit in person and on the players I thought it looked awesome, now I think it's hideous.

    I've not changed from one opinion to another like that with a kit before. I think once I realised just how sky blue it was and that the pattern was quite a weak pattern (unlike the old blue trefoil one we had which brings back memories of Giggsy and Hughes) I went off it straight away.

    If they had stuck to a more solid pattern it would have been a classic imo. But like you say it's all subjective. :D

    It did but why did the twitter account just show the one rather than all three? Just makes people think it is what they're saying the lineup will be which isn't the case.
    Probably just the agreed on most likely of the 3 suggestions

    i saw the MEN projected lineup....are they fking mental???? did they not learn from last season?

    start the group that played against Newcastle and get the game done n dusted as quickly as possible and then look to make changes. If Ole makes one or two changes to the starting XI fine, but not 5 or 6.
    :lol: People having meltdowns over MEN predictions.

    Its going to be full strength with the odd rotation. We’re not fecking around in the UCL when we have got a League Cup match coming up.

    I randomly looked at livescores. Thank God I did. Why such an early start?

    Usually get the team news for UCL earlier than an hour before the game don’t we?

    Why do people write stuff like this with zero reference to the source etc? Pretty useless.
    It's infuriating and tedious.

    Apparently Cavani ate toast today, Rojo made it for him. Didn't even know they were friends.

    here's what i've seen

    degea
    awb varane maguire shaw
    fred pogba
    sancho bruno lingard
    ronaldo



    edit....looks like it was slightly wrong with Donny in for Lingard with Pogba going to the wing and Donny in CM. Lindelof in for Varane.

    Van de Beek makes an appearance! Pogba left wing, Sancho right wing is nice too. So much creativity for Ronaldo, though I generally like 1 inside forward on a wing and 1 creator on the other. Lindelof had started the season well so fair enough there.

    Glad there's been changes but I'd of rested Pogba and brought in one of Lingard or Martial as well

    I really like that lineup. Assuming Pogba on left and Donny in midfield with Fred.

    Love this ! Great to see van de beek start.. claim your champions league starting spot beek. He has to take this chance and show what he can do.. be more daring than the simple passes. Rooting for him

    Why the feck is Varane dropped? He did better than Maguire.

    Sancho is apparently down the right today with Pogba left

    Donny in midfield hopefully
    This is my hope too, him as a AM will be a little bit useless, as he'll never get ahead of Bruno, Pogba and the variety of Fowards that play in that position

    Why do they list players in that manner, the most frustrating thing our social media team does and that's saying something...

    Probably Pogba on the left and VDB with Fred in midfield. With his techniques, he can be an asset on this turf
