    Totally forgot Kompany spent a season at Hamburger before City...
  • Very well explained and I hope people at least try to understand that defending is not only about being aggressive and no-bs tackler/blocker. All of our defenders are so poorly understood by our fans, it's incredible.
  • As the saying goes, "attackers win you games but defenders win you titles"
  • It's called adapting. And circumstances include your opposition. The club is a business entity. They cannot (and should not) spend silly money just to please fans. VdB is a player that has so far been used sparingly, which is to be expected from...
  • No, I don't think you've said that Ole must stick to one formation. It's that you think he is thinkering and not knowing his preferred one while there is a ton of evidence that his changes are necessitated by circumstances. We can't let go of...
  • Common sense? Where? You do not appear to know what that means. Here is Manchester United's formation use last season (also Ole's first full season): What's that? Please tell me how that's different from Klopp's changing system? I guess you...
  • Now you are really proving how much of a agenda-driven knowitall you are though. Here are the systems Liverpool used in Klopp's first season: Second season: Third season: Fourth season: And finally, their title-winning last season...
  • I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are just remembering history wrong. Have a look at Liverpool's first season under Klopp and their most-used formation...
  • You are looking at squad tactics quite simplistically as "one tactic for all occasions". That's not true for ANY team, regardless of size or stature. Look at Manchester City's approach in their games against us recently, versus how they played us...
  • Well, I definitely see our style and have been able to for quite some time. Also, it has been quite obvious, to me, why we brought Maguire and AWB. Maguire brought a lot of calmness to our defense and enables us to play from the back without...
  • I can't write for everyone else, but I think Pauly's analysis is the deepest tactical evolution analysis on Manchester United I have read, maybe ever. I'm not sure about your expectations but would love it if you provide an example of what you...
  • I recommend following these several twitter fan-analysts, they come up with brilliant stuff: https://twitter.com/pkwestel https://twitter.com/timlongsports https://twitter.com/AbdelBeheri https://twitter.com/Adroit_Cadet...
  • Mata is key because of his almost unique role in the squad to be part of the front four positions and still be able to add creativity (either as a roaming nominally right-sided attacking player, or by dropping deeper into the midfield). The only...
