  • Has there ever been a more frustrating and enigmatic team than United? When they show what they can do, you have to wonder how they ever manage to be so completely different at other times. Even if they'd conceded a losing goal tonight, would...

    I agree - I think Pogba has been a far bigger disappointment during his time here. In fact, I think Mata has been the better player over his United run. Pogba did have that one absolutely sublime period when Ole first arrived, but Mata has...

    Pass and move football is what he's best at and he's only recently got team mates that compliment that. It is a shame that, as you say, he is a little dispensable for that reason but it's definitely my favourite type of football. No problem, I...

    Renaissance! Mata, Bruno and VDB are on the same wavelength in terms of passing and movement. All three players are a level above everything else we have which is why I really want to see them in and around the box together linking up with...

    Firstly, the style of play I was referencing to was of the players and what they do and not the tactical style of play introduced by managers. With Bruno he's always having someone to pass to, which wasn't the case earlier. The issue everyone...

    I thought you were talking about Anant as it was his post you quoted. Sorry.

    I thought that was the gist of what he was saying - that overall, good players need each other?

    Meanwhile, the other players on the pitch were Rooney, Rio, Vidic, Evra, Scholes, Giggs, Nani, etc. Whereas Mata got to play with people like Shneiderlin, Fellaini, over the hill Rooney, etc. It's much easier for a player like Cleverley to play...

    It’s hilarious that people don’t think one of the worlds best midfielders in terms of retaining possession and seeing the bigger picture - should not be in the team when Mata plays we don’t lose in fact we tend to win he reminds me of iniesta...

    This is exactly right - he's obviously a clever footballer but he suits specific games. Essentially he is the anti-Fellaini. You keep him on the bench when playing an aggressive high press team but against a Newcastle, Burnley or Palace team -...

    Well you're wasting mine by constantly putting your own spin on what I say. I never said he should have started. I did ask for opinions on why as the in form player, he didn't. I said he would have been in my line up - but I also said that...

    Ffs, by 'right from the start' I meant the game against Spurs. I didn't have a particular opinion until the season got underway :rolleyes: And as the season progresses, I'll likely change my mind because I have this strange idea of using the...
