  • That’s put a genuine smile on my face. Big game from him tomorrow I’m sure.
  • Bruno’s touch & finish :drool:
  • AFC NimbleThumb replied to the thread Bruno, Fred, McT.
    No but I wouldn’t draw the conclusion that McT & Fred are the answer given we were drawing 1-1 when Fred came off. I just don’t believe our current tactics get the best out of quite a few. We want to play a high line but our Cbs attributes...

    We saw last year how effective Fred can be against better teams in a set up that conceded possession so yes I think he’ll show even better than yesterday in those games. As for midfielders not helping the defence, I don’t like dedicating 2...

    Who the feck are we, Stoke!? Chasing & harassing Newcastle away. Pogba isn’t the answer - Mct & Fred sure as hell ain’t either.
  • AFC NimbleThumb replied to the thread Bruno, Fred, McT.
    Our best/most dominant performances came right after Project Restart though :houllier: Can’t wait for the anti-pogba agenda to haunt next season when we’re effectively drawing away to a Newcastle & look to the bench with no WC winner on it. We...
  • Wonder who the whipping boy will be next season when we’re 1-1 away to a Newcastle-esque team with McT & Fred bossing the midfield to a draw :lol: Fans wanting to strip the club of quality instead of asking why the hell we’re playing this...

    We’d lost the previous game 6-1 with Pogba playing LW for 45 minutes; I’d expect a vast improvement. 2 of our 3 best attackers were indeed missing, so remind me what happened at 2-1 against Spurs & who the DMs were in the second half because a...

    Exactly. We were drawing 1-1 when Pogba came on, we won 4-1 - I’m not even stating he was integral in the 3 goals buy people are behaving as if McT & Fred raised the level immeasurably. We won a game, both were ok. If that’s them stamping their...
  • Guess we’ll see going forward. People got what they wanted yesterday & game wasn’t won until Pogba came on the field. So long as our best 3 consists of McT & Fred we won’t be up to much. We need 2 starting midfielders. Playing Pogba in a...
  • I can’t get over the fact we have Paul Pogba & Bruno Fernandes at the club yet people are willing to accept mismanagement as a reason they can’t play together. I refuse to believe there’s no system that couldn’t get better out of such talent...
  • AFC NimbleThumb replied to the thread Bruno, Fred, McT.
    Fred & McT were not the one today, absolute wrong game to make a thread like this off the back of. The fact a certain section of fans have let their distain for a French midfielder make them force such statements is genuinely saddening. We need...
  • A forum should be a place for open debate. This one happens to be about Manchester United so a debate about its management & its competence are valid. The stain on the forum is the group think mentality tied to an opinion. The conversation lacks...
  • He scored a goal against newcastle, calm down lad. I actually came in here to post fair play to him as he was blatantly unfit yet put in a good shift. Do tell me how this works though, do I bookmark your post then quote it next time we lose...
