Ole's screen's latest activity

  • This thread should be locked during the games like the player performances forum. How can every stray pass or every opposition break be used to reinforced our perceived lack of coaching?

    Yes the club would for the most part. The only reason those two got fired was because they didn't make top 4. In van Gaal's case he even won the FA Cup clearly showing its not winning minor trophies that counts, it's consistently getting into top...

    All he's saying is we start poorly and grow into the season. The previous seasons we lost a lot of ground early on and couldn't make it up when we did start playing better and got into our groove. This season even though we've played bad we've...
  • Isn't that basically all our performances this season according to this forum?
  • You're joking right? In what way is he more physical? He's not really a good presser, and he gets shoved out of possession quite a bit.
  • Because we have Sancho and Pogba is still here. This isn't unusual. Lots of clubs buy players for squad/backup roles that don't play that often.
  • Managers don't wait for clubs, especially not clubs like United who seem to be backing the Ole horse til death. If he didn't get fired during that horror run in early 2019-20 season he's definitely not getting fired anytime soon.
  • Depends really. Obviously someone who prefers to carry the ball out would not have as many passes as someone who's looking to get the ball into his feet just to pass. And McT's passing isn't his strength so it seems foolhardy to try to improve...
  • Actually he's improved massively in that regard. He not routinely comes out to sweep towards the edge of his box. He doesn't come all the way out Like a Neuer or Allison would but his starting position being higher massively helps us.
  • Because we were struggling to do the Sancho deal and Pogba looked to be leaving and DvB was a fairly easy deal to do.
  • I think part of that is his positioning when trying to receive a pass. If you look at the clip posted above he seems to want to receive the ball on a half turn so he can turn and carry the ball up the field rather than like Fred or Matic where...
  • You'd lose that house. Also you seem to be confusing goals scored with goal difference.
  • Thats a very unfair reading of what happened. Regarding Van Gaal his problem was he set stupid demands about players like Muller, Lewandowski, etc while vetoing players like Kroos because of a personal vendetta. Jose was backed extremely well for...
  • True. But it was still more about getting into a slightly lower block and not something like making the forwards follow the opposition FB all the way back making Rashford defend in the LB position like under Mourinho. And when we broke and had...
  • I'm not implying that and I hope you're not claiming that we've been dire in every game since 2019. Because neither are true and both are hyperbole. Truth is we're a very streaky team. When we clicked at points last season, and the season before...
