  • A-man replied to the thread Bailly and Lindelof.
    Our first back-4 is good. Lindelof-Maguire have conceded less than 1 goal per game which is totally fine. Not sure where you get your stats from. Bailly has started 9 PL matches. 4 wins 2 draws 3 losses That’s 14 points in 9 matches = 1.56...
  • A-man replied to the thread Confirmation of CB.
    I think he’s been doing that in the matches where Maguire’s been out, except Liverpool but that was a game where most players underperformed, as expected when top-4 is accomplished. Granada as example, he took charge of the defence. We’ve also...
  • Compared to others in our team or in general? I think I have watched them pretty close, but I’ll pay extra attention to it next game. Most likely going to be Axel and Victor in that game.
  • No true. I was replying to another post and misread yours, my apologies. But the reason why his team mates get in trouble, AWB/Fred, is because they are not the best on the ball in those situations. AWB has improved a lot but Fred seems to have...
  • A-man replied to the thread Confirmation of CB.
    The pair Maguire-Lindelof is not a problem, they have been one of the most solid CB pairs in the league this season with less than 1 goal conceded per game. The problem is when one of them is missing, then we get Spurs 1-6, or Liverpool 2-4. I...
  • We all fully understand that you don’t need that. Especially since the facts contradict what you believed you saw. (It is impossible that he misplace every pass as soon as he gets pressed, considering he has so few misplaced passes)
  • I don’t think he misplaces many passes, especially not those on the ground. United passing stats for PL this season: Accurate passes per match: 1. Lindelof 55.9 2. Maguire 52.7 3. Fred 48.9 Inaccurate passes per match: 1. Bruno 10.1 2. Pogba...
  • I don’t think his position has anything to do with it. It’s more that to his left Shaw had his worst game in a long time, to his right Bailly had a positional disaster game and in front of him Fred and McT were horrible. The only one who had a...
  • A-man replied to the thread Eric Bailly | 2020/21 Performances.
    Given it’s not so easy to come in and first play CB pair with Maguire, next match Tuanzebe, and then Lindelof. But wtf has happened to him? He had a stretch of games that were from ok to very good, definitely good enough for a third CB. Now he...
  • I really don’t agree as Maguire -Lindelof have looked very good this season. Maguire looked awful with Bailly recently as well. What we need is really a third semi-senior CB. Doesn’t need to world class but someone reliable who knows the basics...
  • Not a good match even though he wasn’t at fault for any of the goals or made any direct mistakes. But I had hoped he would organise the defence better. I’m starting to think Baillys bad form is costing us stability in the centre. Maguire...
  • A-man replied to the thread Our set-piece defending.
    I don’t have the stats now but when we had conceded our first 20 goals this season 9-10 of them were from setpieces (if you include second and third wave, which are not included in official stats). Also, the quick free kick to Son who scored is...
  • A-man replied to the thread Our set-piece defending.
    Looked at the stats. We conceded a lot of set piece goals the first 25 matches, but only 2 in the last 10 matches (and 1 of them vs Leicester when we didn’t have any first xi defender on the pitch). It is a little too short stretch of matches to...
  • A-man replied to the thread Our set-piece defending.
    It has been our big weakness this season. Actually it is not setpieces in general, but more specifically corners. If you count second and third wave after corners I think it is even more than 12 goals. Only City and Liverpool have conceded...
  • It’s incredible low intelligent to not see the how City did the same thing.
