  1. Post match vs West Bromwich Albion

    3 points is 3 points, but hard not to feel like this team is less than the sum of its parts. We have to improve massively if we want to be within a shout of top 4.
  2. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    That's damning.
  3. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    Me too. I get it in the big games when we risk getting overrun in midfield, but it's not acceptable against a team like West Brom. No reason Bruno and VdB can't play together with one holder.
  4. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    Disagree completely, the rules need to change because VAR has changed the margin of error. Offside is a perfect example. The spirit of the law was to ensure the attacker doesn't get an unfair advantage by being ahead of play, but when you're measuring millimetres, that intent gets lost in the...
  5. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    Massive let-off, could have gone either way that.
  6. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    He's not wrong. I don't have time for Owen mostly but he talks some sense about strikers. I wouldn't hook Martial as I don't think he's been terrible and his link-up play adds a lot. But his lack of ruthlessness in front of goal is a problem. I feel we should bring on Cavani, play Martial off...
  7. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    West Brom only looking to defend. No reason not to drop the double pivot and add another attacking player for the second half. I will be critical if Ole is slow to make changes and force the issue.
  8. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    I think you're projecting. I see nothing wrong with his body language
  9. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    If there was one thing I could change about the way we currently play, it's how far Rashford and Martial are away from each other. They have the best understanding of any two players in our team but are rarely close enough to exchange passes regularly. I think if we pushed Rashford higher and...
  10. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    Disappointed still no start for VdB. Feel like he could easily play as one of the two deeper midfielders.
  11. Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion

    I like this, but don't think everyone of that front three will play. Isn't Rashford a doubt for this one?
  12. Solskjaer's Press Conference - West Brom

    Sounds like Tuanzebe might be playing against West Brom with Jones out, Bailly not ready, and Lindelof a doubt.
  13. 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch

    A lot of people jumping to the most obvious conclusion that this is about money or that it means Messi is coming... but I"m not sure Pep has that many other options right now. How many top clubs would sign Pep as their manager right now? I'm not sure there's that many. What has Pep proven over...
  14. Internationals November (Nations League / Euro 2021 play-offs / Friendlies)

    That's the frustrating thing though isn't it? He does so well with his link up play, gets the team going, but then misses both of those chances. So do you persist with him, knowing he's probably not the most clinical but will help the team flow, or do you look elsewhere because he misses too...
