  1. Pre-Match Press Conference | Villarreal v Manchester United | UEFA Champions League

    Yup. Ronaldo is the problem according to English press. Unbelievable. Maguire also gifted Leicester their 1-1 goal.
  2. Conte | Spurs Manager

    Fair points, but Conte would have been one of the better choices for an interim manager. Will be interesting to see what a new manager can do with players such as Wan Bissaka, McFred and Maguire. Not a lot I am afraid.
  3. Would you take Rodgers at United?

    If we get him I hope we sign some of Leicester's scouts as well.
  4. Paul Pogba | 2021/22 Performances

    International football is slower than the PL and France play a three man midfield to accomodate Pogba. I don't think we have built a style of play around him but he is too inconsistent and Bruno is a better player. He is probably off to Madrid but it is a pity he will leave for free after...
  5. Can Aaron Wan-Bissaka be an attacking right wingback in this formation?

    He was very good yesterday and put in a great tackle but he also misplaced a few key passes. I was positively surprised but there is a reason why we tried to sign Trippier in the summer. I would be tempted to call back Laird in January.
  6. Jadon Sancho | 2021/22 Performances

    It is symptomatic on how the club is run when we chase a player for 2 years and then we have no clue on how to use him while at the same time we have failed to address pressing needs in CM and at RB. Rice or Trippier would have made much more sense than Sancho in this window.
  7. Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United

    It is probably the only way we can keep a clean sheet. If only we had signed Trippier...
  8. Harry Maguire | 2021/22 Performances

    A rich man's Eric Bailly based on recent form. Selling Evans for 12m and buying Maguire for 80m. Out of his depth. Varane is missing.
  9. Manchester United vs Liverpool

    Salah to score at least one on the counter and we will concede at least one from a setpiece.
  10. The McFred midfield duo

    4-3-3 with Bruno as a false no 9? McTominay - Matic - Pogba Greenwood - Bruno - Rashford Main issue would still be that we lack a good CDM. I think our best line up is: McFred Greenwood - Bruno - Rashford Cavani At least all 6 players would work their socks off.
  11. Post match vs Leicester City

    We do not have a world class squad. We lack world class central midfielders. If you play Pogba, Matic and Ronaldo any team in the PL will out run you.
  12. Manchester United vs Villarreal

    I do not think Telles will start. Telles and Pogba would form a too weak left side. I think Fred will be left back. I am probably wrong though.
  13. Next permanent manager

    Has it? We are buying expensive players with no game plan, it seems. Donny? A replacement for Pogba who decided to stay? 50m for a RB who is quite inept going forward. 80m for Maguire is hardly a steal. 180m for those 3 is not great business for any DoF. Buying Sancho and not a top CDM is the...
  14. Next permanent manager

    Potter did a great job with Östersund (a skiing town) in northern Sweden and took them to EL. He is a great young coach. Can he cope with the pressure? He knows the league but Zidane has more European experience.
  15. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2021/22 Discussion

    Same old problems: AWB and McFred are not good enough technically. Pogba together with those 3 are not press resistent. Maguire in poor form and losing Shaw did not help. Villa have a game plan that we lack and that is on Ole. It is very obvious that this team will win nothing.
