  1. Is Roy Keane dead to you?

    Roy Keane can say whatever he likes. I don't always agree with him, but respect his passion and his honesty. We need another Roy Keane.
  2. Juan Mata | 2019/20 Performances

    There's been several games where he looked like he was the only one with a clue, but was still subbed off. He hasn't been given a chance to get into any kind of rhythm, any momentum, any confidence. He isn't always the best option, and we obviously need to reinforce the midfield, but Mata...
  3. Juan Mata | 2019/20 Performances

    Exactly. I can get why people want someone quicker, but Mata gets unnecessary abuse tagging him directly on the poison pit that is Twitter. You could be forgiven for thinking he must have disrespected the shirt.
  4. Juan Mata | 2019/20 Performances

    In both recent matches, he's shown more pace than he's given credit for. And his brain is quicker than most. We still need a creative, younger, quicker, midfielder, but JM still has plenty to offer and hasn't deserved to be treated like the villain of the piece like he has been so often...
  5. Has Juan Mata been a flop?

    Would you like to clarify what 'absolutely nothing' means.
  6. Has Juan Mata been a flop?

    Agreed. He is almost certainly past his best, but still useful - he might not be the quickest physically, but is probably the quickest mentally. We look more creative when he plays. A few seasons ago, United fans were claiming he was better than David Silva, which he likely was at the time -...
  7. Post match vs Tottenham Hotspur

    I'm not claiming to be a body language experts. It doesn't take an expert to see a determination on the face of Rashford last night that has been missing for a lot of the season.
  8. Post match vs Tottenham Hotspur

    I know. But there were games he wasn't played in. I'm only surmising, but Marcus certainly had a different look last night, including his facial expressions.
  9. Post match vs Tottenham Hotspur

    Rashford looked very driven. If it was personal because he still holds a grudge against Jose, I wish he'd apply it every game - he was awesome. It does make you question whether the players are more to blame for this year than Ole is. We're very quick to suggest it's the players when teams...
  10. Is Pogba as good as gone?

    Important obviously, but I can’t remember many games when I can say I’ve enjoyed watching him play, when I haven’t been irritated by his lack of urgency, when he’s lost the ball and made no attempt to get it back...he does not strike me as a team player.
  11. Is Pogba as good as gone?

    I'd put a few ahead of him. Including Brandon Williams, Daniel James and Wan-Bissaka. Sometimes effort goes a bit further than the occasional killing pass.
  12. Manchester United vs Aston Villa

    I think all United supporters would hope that any player in the squad could prove their detractors wrong. There's a lot of vitriol aimed at players just because people have taken a dislike to them. I would be happy - on current form - to see the back of Matic, Lingard and Jones. But if they...
  13. Manchester United vs Aston Villa

    I'm worth far more ;)
  14. Manchester United vs Aston Villa

    I'm better than Fred.
  15. Manchester United vs Aston Villa

    The tree in my garden is free. And if it's a bit windy, will move more than Static does.
