  1. Kristoffer Olsson - An offensive and deep laying creative cm player

    Soooo How did he do? Has he secured a move to Chelski yet?
  2. Post match vs RB Leipzig

    My comment is fair. He looks half arsed for the majority of the time. Tonight was different - he done well and played with passion. I am giving him credit. Finally, he's played a game where he looks committed and helped the team.
  3. Donny van de Beek | 2020/21 Performances

    Completely agree. From Ole's 1st transfer window it was clear his intention is to shape the squad with quality not only the first x11. He's doing that - it was always going to be a long job given how poor the squad was when he took over. Credit to Ole. On Donny - he's a great player. So...
  4. Mason Greenwood | 2020/21 Performances

    Superb again. Deadly when given a chance at goal
  5. Post match vs RB Leipzig

    A truly great performance. I've always said that if all players work hard for each other - we can be a great team. We are always let down by individual errors and lack of effort. If we play with that desire we can be a match for anyone. Even Pogba looked like he wanted to contribute...
  6. Post match vs RB Leipzig

    Agree with most assessments here, but want to highlight some further points: De Gea - excellent. Save from Konate header was superb. And why do we allow players to head from a point blank range? Konate was heading from 2 meters - Maguire and Lindelof could play 10/10 but they are both capable of...
  7. Telles has Covid

    Gutting for him. Hope he recovers well and we ease him back in properly
  8. Critique this 11

    Agree but we have issue's in this regard. For DM we have tried: Matic - natural position however lacks mobility and fitness to play this regularly to a high standard Fred - More box to box but playing as a pure DM limits him and I don't think he's reliable enough to play as a lone DM McTom -...
  9. Critique this 11

    Looks deadly easy for oppositions aye. Telles is an attacking full back/wing back and Pogba cannot defend or track players to save his life. We would be ruined down the left side all day long as Pogba will leave Telles too exposed.
  10. Post match vs Chelsea

    Read through the forum and performance threads - he's being scapegoated. Agree he's in bad form. What we have to acknowledge is there is many factors which contribute to that - it's not as black and white as people are making out. Just slating him and calling him not good enough is lame and...
  11. Post match vs Chelsea

    I said he played poor and i addressed the fact he isn;t playing to his strengths. That being said, the team doesnt play through balls either so it kind of limits him. He's in a bad rut at the moment We need to back him instead of hating on him though. There's a good player in there
  12. Post match vs Chelsea

    I know there is so much negativity here and i'd like to add my 2 pence worth. The premier league and champions league are different animals - we all know that. So we won our last premier league game with 4-2-3-1 and battered PSG with a 3 at the back system. Kinda put Ole in a tough spot...
  13. Should we consider selling Pogba?

    Is this a wind up of some sort? Pogba as a central midfield player is inferior to those mentioned. He's not even worthy of being compared to Zidane, Platini, Iniesta - frankly insulting to world class players in they're day. Ozil he can be compared too - talented but goes missing too often...
  14. Should we consider selling Pogba?

    I do like the idea of that formation. But fear we are too top heavy and light in quality in midfield for it to work. With some signings, sure. You'd have a dilemma for 1 spot between Rashford, Martial and Greenwood. Not to mention Cavani... But regardless - i'm done with the notion of...
  15. January....

    It doesnt matter who the manager is or who the targets are - the board are pretty shambolic in the transfer market. Ole had great targets - Sancho/Grealish/Upamencano that we know of. Issue isnt identifying targets its the board not being able to get them is the issue
