  1. McTominay - what’s his potential?

    McTominay is a regular starter for the team currently 2nd in the PL. Given his age, the amount of football he has played in his career to date and the position he plays, it is reasonable to expect him to improve a bit, but probably not a huge amount. I think he could be a regular starter for a...
  2. Who decided to sign Van De Beek?

    Paul Tomkins and Graeme Riley did a huge research project into transfers as part of their book, Pay As You Play. They found that 50% of transfers are a success, and that figure applies as much to high priced signings of elite players, as it does to lower priced transfers. If you go on...
  3. Victor Lindelöf | 2020/21 Performances

    Lindelof seemed to struggle having to play left CB, instead of right CB. Not a great performance but I thought several others were far worse.
  4. Luke Shaw | 2020/21 Performances

    Gave away possession cheaply at times. Didn't seem like Shaw + Pogba took the threat of Salah and Alexander-Arnold seriously enough.
  5. Paul Pogba | 2020/21 Performances

    Totally at fault for their 2nd goal. Gave away a foul in order to give Bruno time to recover from his injury then made a terrible attempt at preventing Firmino from scoring. A fierce left foot shot that went well wide and a header wide from Fernandes' cross after a corner. Failed to create much...
  6. Fred | 2020/21 Performances

    Several ugly passes tonight, an awful pass got us in trouble leading eventually to their 3rd goal. Good player who had a very poor game.
  7. Scott McTominay | 2020/21 Performances

    Poor performance. We needed to retain the ball better, especially when Liverpool were so dominant in the first half after we scored. Tried some ambitious long passes in the 2nd half that didn't find the intended target but weren't so far away either.
  8. Dean Henderson | 2020/21 Performances

    Worrying performance. Admittedly they had a lot of big chances but awful error for the 3rd goal and left a huge space for Salah to score the 4th. Did well to stop Jota in the 1st half and Mane in the 2nd. Keepers are going to make errors from time to time. At the moment, I'd still have...
  9. Transfers - comings, goings and what we need - for the 21/22 season

    You can cross Ebony Salmon off the list. Katie Whyatt said the deal to Louisville was done a few months ago.
  10. Miscellaneous Reserve/Youth News

    There are a couple of YouTube videos on the last page of his thread. And details of how many mins he got in each match he appeared in. Initially he was an unused sub for 3 League matches, then 3 sub appearances, 2 starts in the League in April, in amongst more sub appearances. As Mickson stated...
  11. Miscellaneous Reserve/Youth News

    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/mark-helm/profil/spieler/596217 Read the player data section, contract expires comes at the bottom of that bit (2022) (from time to time Transfermarkt do get things wrong, so it is possible that it's incorrect) There is an article in the Mail that lists Helm...
  12. Miscellaneous Reserve/Youth News

    I was wondering this too. Max Taylor has announced he is leaving. There have been articles that suggested Puigmal and Woolston either haven't been offered new deals or have refused them, so they are off. Harvey Neville has announced he has joined Inter Miami's development team, Fort Lauderdale...
  13. Who will be our first choice #9 next season?

    This. Though the picture may change during the course of the season, depending on the form of Cavani and Martial. If Martial can rediscover his form of last season, then he could win back his starting role. Since Solskjaer selects the team, his opinion is far more important than anyone else's.
  14. What to do with the kids

    Elanga - loan, most probably for 2 or 3 seasons, then if he demonstrates he can perform at PL, Serie A, Ligue 1, La Liga or Bundesliga level, then come back to United to compete for mins Garner - probably another Championship or PL loan, assuming Matic stays Mejbri - loan to Eredivisie in...
  15. Donny van de Beek | 2020/21 Performances

    Donny completed 37 out of 43 passes. To give some context, Mata completed 40/49, Matic 75/85. Touches (which Opta means occasions a player had the ball, rather than actual touches) Donny 58, Mata 55, Matic 102.
