  1. davidmichael replied to the thread United’s next manager.

    I agree with all 3 of those choices as well as Pocchettino who I think has now hit a wall at Spurs and needs a really big job to motivate himself fully, thing is I don’t see any of the 3 you said or Pocchettino coming in anytime before the end of...

  2. davidmichael replied to the thread How much time is enough time to gauge Ole?.

    I think we give him until at least Christmas and if he’s had a full squad available to him but the results are still the same then it needs seriously looking at, the problem then though is that we’re back to exactly where we were last Christmas...

  3. davidmichael replied to the thread Our most important player this season: Fred?.

    Was easily the best player on the pitch on Thursday night, full of energy and very industrious. It wasn’t the hardest opposition at all but it was definitely a performance to build on, I think Fred as he played on Thursday alongside McTominay as...

  4. davidmichael replied to the thread There is no United Way it’s Fergie’s way.

    Sir Matt created ‘the United way’ and it continued all the way through to the end of Sir Alex’s reign but only Sir Matt and Sir Alex were able to turn it into a winning formula, since Sir Alex we’ve strayed and then sprinted away from that brand...

  5. davidmichael replied to the thread Ole Gunnar Solskjær | Permanent manager.

    How can people be moaning about tonight when outside of Rashford, Romero, Jones, Rojo and Matic we played a team that probably didn’t have more than 50 starts between them and Dalot would have had 75% of those himself ? People have been...

  6. davidmichael replied to the thread Post match vs FC Astana.

    Rashford is very wasteful and I think going forward he should play as left sided attack permanently, I think Greenwood is better through the middle especially seeing as he can go either way and with either foot whilst Chong is so left footed he’d...

  7. davidmichael replied to the thread Raphaël Varane - Summer 2019.

    I think Real should take Klopp, Van Dijk, Salah and Mane from Liverpool and whilst we’re at it Barca take Pep back and he can take De Bruyne, Rodri and Bernardo Silva there too :lol::lol::lol:

  8. davidmichael replied to the thread Man Utd set to appoint Director of Football (when hell freezes over).

    https://www.skysports.com/share/11813341 Well we can rule him out, I’d have loved to have seen him brought in to fill a similar role to what he has done/is doing as he’s clearly extremely good at it.

  9. davidmichael replied to the thread Lindelof signs new contract until 2024 (+1).

    Well that kind of came from nowhere but good news regardless, he’s still only young for a centre back and will hopefully only get better so we’ve got him tied down now for what should be his prime years.

  10. davidmichael replied to the thread Sky Sports: Gary Neville on Utd's season expectations | MNF.

    Definitely agree about the not panic buying as that’s what got us into a lot of the mess we’re currently in now. Ole clearly wants Sancho, Maddison and Rice or Longstaff (my preference is Rice) but it wasn’t possible this summer so we play the...

  11. davidmichael replied to the thread Declan Rice.

    We need both a playmaker AND an out and out defensive midfielder, different games mean different tactics and different players starting matches. They’ll be games where we need an out and out defensive midfielder due to playing with a playmaker...

    Progression or league position?

    Just seen this from Gary Neville, http://www.skysports.com/share/11811959 Personally I don’t agree with him as I think our league position at the end of this season basically shapes where we'll be going forward, another season out of the...

  13. davidmichael replied to the thread Influence of Sir Alex.

    I’d say 2 and 3 are definitely things that Sir Alex has played a part in or had advised as I don’t think for a second Woodward would have been intelligent enough to have gone with Ole, bringing Ole in was such a romantic appointment that the fans...

  14. davidmichael replied to the thread Declan Rice.

    I know, it’s the same as people wanting us to play McTominay as an out and out defensive midfielder just so we don’t have to play Matic despite the fact McTominay isn’t that type of player at all.

  15. davidmichael replied to the thread Declan Rice.

    That’s why I think it’s better to sign Rice than Longstaff as from what has been said by experts Longstaff is the exact same player as Garner which is a deep lying playmaker who dictates from a position just in front of the defence akin to...
