  1. Yet another Tactical Masterclass from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Whoop whoop!

    He's not. However that midfield is. You have 3 hardworking players doing all the leg work paired to a sober intelligent play maker doing the thinking and the passing for them. Regarding Matic and Pogba I think its the worst match to play as the base of a 4-2-3-1 system. Pogba is a defensive...
  2. Yet another Tactical Masterclass from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Whoop whoop!

    I read some posts prior to the game and I thought that they were silly. They thought that leipzig at home were going to be a far more difficult opponent to PSG away. Leipzig are a well run team but they are a small club who operate on an often shoestring budget. They also play an attacking...
  3. Yet another Tactical Masterclass from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Whoop whoop!

    I think that's we're taking it to the other extreme now. Ole is not yet in a position to compete for the League, not yet anyhow. However its also ridiculous to trash Nagelsmann for losing with his team at home with United. Sure Leipzig are a well run club, probably far more then we are. However...
  4. Yet another Tactical Masterclass from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Whoop whoop!

    Some people overrate him, others underrate him. I think he's here on merit having managed to come 3rd place. However there's many question marks surrounding his transfers and tactics at time.
  5. Yet another Tactical Masterclass from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Whoop whoop!

    What about being a bit realistic instead? It was a great result indeed. However it was one game, at home, against a well run but smaller club who operates on a limited budget. This year Leipzig lost Werner and yet the still spent less then what we spent on Traore AND Pellistri. Last year they...
  6. Yet another Tactical Masterclass from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Whoop whoop!

    TBF Nagelsmann would probably dream of having Ole's 'lack of financial backing'. Last season it was a busy transfer window for them and yet they still spent less then we spent on Maguire alone. This year they lost Werner and yet they still spent less to what we spent on Pellistri and Traore...
  7. Manchester United vs RB Leipzig

    There some great great players as pundits with BT. Then there is Hargreaves
  8. Monchi - "I cannot believe Manchester United do not have a Sporting Director."

    Anyone whose remotely Ole in wouldn't want Rangnick. First of all he's a purist who wouldn't want to spend huge money if he can help it. That probably means no Maguire for 80m, no AWB for 50m, no Sancho for 100m etc. Also from what I've seen in his brief interactions with AC Milan he takes no...
  9. "this midfield doesn't do enough offensively"

    Those 2 own goals came at the back of 6 goals against Spurs and 2 goals vs Brighton. Maguire had been a mess with England as well. There's no coincidence to that. I believe that football is a team game and the problem need to be tackled in such way. We need to find a balance between not getting...
  10. "this midfield doesn't do enough offensively"

    I am not blaming the midfield. I am blaming defence actually. We still ended up with 2 own goals in 3 matches despite playing with 7-8 defensive minded players out of 11 players. Meanwhile we could have easily ended up losing against Chelsea because mr 80m went on full WWE on a Chelsea player...
  11. "this midfield doesn't do enough offensively"

    If a team plays with 7-8 defensive minded players then its natural that it will probably have more shots on goal then the opposition. That's because they would close the gaps and win the ball more thus pushing the opposition in their own side. However its also normal that such dominance will...
  12. "this midfield doesn't do enough offensively"

    I repeat that midfield was moronic. Matic is slow and Pogba is a defensive liability. Ole should have known better. However we now went to another extreme now. Also note that despite going full catenacchio mode we still ended up with 2 own goals in 3 matches with the PSG game won with a penalty...
  13. "this midfield doesn't do enough offensively"

    No manager plays with 2-3 defensive minded midfielders especially when he utilise a defence with 4 defensive minded defenders unless A- he is a defensive manager B- he doesn't trust his back lines I don't think that Ole is a defensive manager and I understand why he doesn't trust that leaky...
  14. "this midfield doesn't do enough offensively"

    I repeat I don't give a feck what managers say in pressers. They won't expose their dirty laundry. I believe what I see on the pitch and what I see is a manager who has no clue what a balanced midfield is. We went from one extreme to another.
