  1. Paul Pogba | 2019/20 Performances

    Oh and one last thing on Paul Pogba,if I had a pound for everyone who said to me that he must be a brilliant player because he has won a World Cup,I would be richer than him haha.I can think of a whole lorry load of players who have won World Cups who I would have no where near my team and he is...
  2. Paul Pogba | 2019/20 Performances

    I am sure there are loads of posters on this forum rather like myself in as much as,they are sick and tired of Paul Pogba.I have said before that he is a very gifted player with talent when he wants to be but sadly for United those occasions are very very few and far between now and the time is...
  3. Are you guys happy with Maguires distribution of the ball?

    I have posted many times already about the most over-rated defender in the premiership at the present time.Yes you guessed it,Harry Maguire.Look I am a Manchester United Season Ticket holder,like I suspect many others on here so I do not want to be negative just for negative sake but when are...
  4. Jesse Lingard | 2019/20 Performances

    Lets have a dose of realism here please.Jesse Lingard had a good game,the best he has played for a while I would say in a United shirt.His movement and passing on the whole was more than adequate and his determination in this derby match which is I would guess is indeed,HIS,most important match...
  5. How to get better at breaking down deep sides

    The simple answer to the post and the question in general is to have gifted footballers in your team.It is pointless going on about formations and managers and to a certain but I concede lesser extent,coaching because it is the players and an individual players skill and ability or lack of it in...
  6. When will match going fans crack?

    I am a Season Ticket Holder of long standing and have supported United home and away for over 40 years and I just feel that whilst myself and indeed,most fans who go to Old Trafford can see what is going on,the fact our home record is pretty good(though I accept it could always be better) and...
  7. ‘Ole’s recruitment has been great’ narrative

    Lets have some reality here please.Dan James has been a decent signing for the money we paid for him,he is no world beater as some seem to feel however he has done well so far,is only young and I feel sure his best days in a United shirt are all in front of him.Wan-Bissaka has done ok,I wouldn't...
  8. We need to talk about our defence...

    Come on lads,lets add a touch of realism here please regarding our defence at the present time.It is ok, maybe slightly above average at best,lets not carried away and start thinking that Harry Maguire in particular,is going to be some kind of world beater and the same regarding Lindelof...
  9. Make a starting 11 with your favourite United players

    so in conclusion , my favourite players for a starting 11 for United would be Peter Schmeichel in goal and 10 other Bryan Robson's...
  10. Make a starting 11 with your favourite United players

    Being a tad older than perhaps the majority of posters on here who naturally have selected footballers from maybe the last 15 years or so and again this is only opinion and it is ,of course,all relative but the best United Player of my lifetime by a mile was Bryan Robson.People tend to have...
  11. Current Players Who Are Good Enough To Stay In The First XI

    This is a very difficult question to answer because,of course,it is all relative to exactly which United team we are comparing this current squad of players with.For example,Stam,Vidic,Rio were all far far far better players than Harry Maguire.I am certain no-one could argue or dispute...
  12. United’s next manager

    I, maybe like a lot of people would have liked Pochettino at United before we actually appointed Ole as our permanent manager.He had a brilliant reputation in the game,seemed very much a forward thinker, a players coach if you like and someone who could almost certainly get the best out of...
  13. When do we go Europa or bust?

    I loved it when we won the Europa League because for me,winning is all that matters and trophies and cups are far more important than anything else.Look I am not a financial man so I understand that for the club and especially under this ownership, making money is the be all and end all and the...
  14. Any Fergie players shouldn’t have been sold?

    The obvious ones have already been mentioned,in particular,some of my favourite players to wear a United Shirt i.e Jaap Stam and Paul McGrath who, when fit,was one of the best defenders I have ever seen.I liked Ruud, a pure out and out striker and goalgetter if ever there was one.I cant quite...
  15. Mark Hughes

    I would so like to disagree with the posts about Mark Hughes as I always think it is good to stimulate discussion and debate however on this occasion, I simply cannot because he was a fantastic player for us and one of my favourites of his era perhaps only behind the truly inspirational legend...
