    The player of yours that I’m curious to see how Conte fits in is Bruno. Like if he uses the 3-4-3 he used when he was with us where could Bruno even play? Playing him in CM further away from the goal negates his biggest qualities and you’ll get...

    Bakayoko was his signing (though he didn’t want to sell Matic in the first place) Morata was signed because we missed out on Lukaku who was his number 1 choice. And DD was a last minute panic buy on deadline day.

    Bruno is also kind of an issue with Conte’s usual setup. In a pre-CR7 world I think he’d have lined up with Cavani up top, Rashford left, Sancho right, and Pogba next to a midfielder who dominates huge areas of the pitch and snuffs out danger...
  • Orc replied to the thread Would you take Conte at United?.
    Yeah, I admit I have no clue how he’d pick from all those attacking players you have. Ronaldo really complicates it even more. Ironically, Cavani is the picture perfect Conte forward and the idea of him up top with runners like Rashford alongside...
  • Orc replied to the thread Would you take Conte at United?.
    Also think it should be explained again why Conte‘s stints haven’t been working out for longer than a couple of years. There’s this wide perception that he some sort of angry demon who just explodes out of nowhere for no reason, falls out with...

    They may be similar in that they’re both excellent tactically, but they’re nothing alike personality wise.
  • Orc replied to the thread Would you take Conte at United?.
    I mean, it kinda can get worse. You lose your next 2 and even getting that 4th spot will start to feel nervy. You don’t want to be double digit points behind each of the top 3. Leicester are starting to kick into gear as well.
  • Orc replied to the thread Would you take Conte at United?.
    With the exception of CR7 who won’t press (and probably can’t for a whole season at his age, tbf) you have a squad full of players who can at least increase the tempo and aggressively assert yourselves. Which I think Conte could certainly...

    You have the type of squad that the Mourinho of 10+ years ago would have as runaway title winners.
  • Orc replied to the thread Would you take Conte at United?.
    People have to remember that when Conte first started with us he didn’t play his now famous back 3 with flying wingbacks. We had to switch to that after some terrible results. So it wouldn’t be 100% nailed on that he’d come in day 1 at United...
  • What exactly is all that money for? In the year 2022 anyone around the world who even knows who Beckham is will likely already be tuning in to the World Cup.
  • Orc replied to the thread Chelsea appoint Thomas Tuchel.
    I would say our squad overall is pretty much even with yours. But there is a colossal difference in 1 area that just so happens to be the most important which is midfield. And yes, the massive gulf between Tuchel and Ole.

    I mean, is he wrong? I don’t think anyone other than United fans would disagree with that. Edit: saw the stealth edit
  • Orc replied to the thread Premier League Gameweek 9.
    We’ve had 2 really poor performances (City & Juve) and one poor 20-25 minutes against Brentford. So not that many. Definitely haven’t been at our best yet this season for sure.
  • Orc replied to the thread Premier League Gameweek 9.
    I hadn’t been paying the table much attention yet this early in the season so I just realized that with this result against Norwich, if Liverpool win tomorrow we would be 8 points clear of United. :eek: For some reason I thought you guys were...
