  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Seeing Out Games.
    Yes there is a problem I think. When we get hit by an urgent wave of attack, we look very ragged. Sometimes we skip down the other end and score. But often we look desperate. The cause is a lack of quality in CM. It rarely happened when we had...
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread We are an awfully coached team.
    The best indication of the effectiveness of the management and coaching is the results we get over a long period. If we’re looking for something in particular and it ain’t there or if player A or B ain’t delivering like we know he could, we’re...
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Jack Grealish.
    I’d want him in centre mid and I would want everything to go through him. The last ten minutes yesterday were so frustrating the way we couldn’t get hold of the ball and take the sting out of the game. Grealish would solve that problem (among...
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Michael Oliver.
    No it wasn’t a mistake. I wasn’t aware anyone said it was a mistake. The point about “clear and obvious” is that even if it was a mistake (which I don’t think it was), VAR is not supposed to overrule the ref unless the mistake is “clear and...
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Michael Oliver.
    Yes because it wasn’t a clear and obvious mistake. I do think it was a penalty. A soft one, but a penalty.
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Michael Oliver.
    Like all penalties, it is one if it’s given. Whether it should be is where the debate comes in. I don’t think VAR would have overturned the refs decision if he said No Penalty. “Soft”, in this case, means minimal contact, debatable impact of...
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Fred - £47m well spent.
    Decent player, decent value at £50m. Gets through a lot of work and we need him. Long term I see him as a valuable squad player who will, for sure, start 20 games a season. I would like to think we will get a top level DM in before too long...
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Jack Grealish.
    Great to see so many posts enthusing about this guy. He is so good that we just have to sign him without any whingeing about priorities. SAF didn’t give a shit about that stuff, if the top players became “available” he tried to get them.
  • I know nothing about this guy but our midfield looks short of top quality with Fred and McT both starting. They both do a job when in form and I like Fred as he really gets about but they lack that quality we need to snuff teams out. I mean, we...
  • He just looks like an absolute top level player. Personally I like him as a replacement for Pogba but obvs he can play as 10 if Bruno is out or play wide on either side. Class.
  • He’s in bad form after being injured and his shite show against Wolves (or was it Leicester) might have knocked his confidence. But at this point I am doubting his long term future here. I understand his selection tonight but given how he...
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Manchester United vs Aston Villa.
    Sounds right. Assuming Rashford will spend a lot of time out left but where’s the width on the right coming from? Nowhere I suppose. Which could be fine, we’ll see.
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Manchester United vs Aston Villa.
    Yeah that could be good.
  • OrcaFat replied to the thread Manchester United vs Aston Villa.
    Couple of posters saying Pogba will be wide left but I can’t see that happening. Looking at the personnel it may pan out as 4-3-1-2 unless Fred or McT are asked to sit at the base of a diamond but if that’s the shape surely Matic was the choice...
  • Hope Grealish has a great game against us, hits the bar three times and we win 4-0. He’s impressed with us, we’re impressed with him and we get the deal back on (assuming it was ever really on before it was off).
