devilish's latest activity

  • I fully agree. The irony in all this is that we already had a British core with Smalling, Shaw, Jesse, Rashford, McT and Young + Greenwood, Henderson and Tuanzebe coming through. Don't take me wrong, I am not against us spending big money on...
  • Maguire need a rapid CB. Maybe Tuanzebe can save his career with United. Big fee signings in defence should elevate the current defence rather then expect others to make it work. I can't recall us worrying which player can make Pally, Stam, Rio...
  • There were various reasons why we conceded so many goals during Mou's last year as well. Strangely enough you prefer to compare last season's goal conceded with that season rather then to what happened prior to that. Regarding Mou's record we won...
  • There's no doubt that AWB had played great against PSG. However we defended with numbers during that game with 8 defensive minded players (De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Shaw, Telles, Fred and McTominay). The tactics were spot on but...
  • It wasn't the case. I was just suggesting that these days wingback need to be able to go forward and create chances. Then it went out of hand from there
  • 3 more assists in 20 less games.
  • The season before United were a mess with Mou losing the dressing room and getting sacked mid way of the season. We conceded way less goals in 2017-2018 (28 goals) and in 2016-2017 (29) then we did last season (36). That despite the lack of 130m...
  • Tuanzebe had lost 97 days in 2018. Irrespective of that he was so green that he pissed grass. We knew that Bailly was injury prone as well so our options were Lindelof and Smalling. Ole didn't trust Smalling so Maguire was set to play with...
  • I don't accept that. I raised concerns about Maguire, long before we signed him. I always said that he was slow, that he's overrated, that he doesn't fit what we need, that he's no leader and that he's overpriced. Let us be clear though. I...
  • Ole must have known that Bailly and Tuanzebe were injury prone. So he had 80m in the banks and 2 'reliable' CBs in Lindelof and Smalling. Its evident that he didn't trust Smalling which is quite strange considering that Hodor was rapid and he was...
  • I think Judge/Woodward are still clueless which explain WHY our POF now rotate solely around negotiating deals. What I think is happening is a steady restructuring on who call the shots which is shifting away from our traditional 'Manager know...
  • I can't think of any FBs who are worth 100m + tbh. But there's more to the fee Let's start from Maguire. Prior to us signing him our defensive core lacked a leader with pace. DDG, Lindelof and Matic were no leaders, they were pretty static type...
  • I think spending 130m on Maguire and AWB is stupid. None of them are remotely WC and Maguire is exactly the CB type we didn't need
  • Nothing can be taken for granted. Actually this stance is why United are in such mess and its also the reason why we didn't turn the treble side into an unstoppable force that could win 1-2 more CL. Speaking of not being backed, fans should have...
