  1. Manchester City vs Manchester United

    Fred is a work horse. Today it’s pretty clear his technique isn’t good enough at the highest level. What happened with Rashford’s speed? He seems slower.
  2. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2020/21 Discussion

    Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and United are in trouble. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Milan are actually also in trouble. Only BM and City isn’t in trouble. It’s a hard world. Feel sorry for people taking things for granted. High expectations and especially unrealistic...
  3. Telegraph Football: Man Utd looking to appoint director of football this summer

    Yes. Martial, James and Greenwood wouldn’t be starters on Arsenal. Odegaard and Ceballos are better than Fred and McT offensively. Rating Luiz above Lindelof is no sensation.
  4. Telegraph Football: Man Utd looking to appoint director of football this summer

    Don’t agree. Maybe our squad is marginal better than Arsenal in total. Arsenal’s offensive line up is as good as ours, maybe better (Aubameyang, Odegaard, Ceballos, Pepe, Wilian (in normal form) and Lancazette), and I also choose Luiz above Lindelof.
  5. Telegraph Football: Man Utd looking to appoint director of football this summer

    Summa summum our individual quality is not much to talk home about. United for sure isn’t top 2 because our squad is top 2 quality. In general people seem to overestimate the quality of our squad. Lindelof, James, Fred, Matic, DVB, Mata would even struggle to play regular on a mid table team...
  6. Erling Haaland

    Just do it! Sell Martial, Pogba, DDG = Haaland Sell Matic, Lingard, Lindelof + ?m = CD or CM
  7. We are an awfully coached team

    Taking into account the quality of our squad it’s no doubt we are over performing = good management. Central defence = pretty average (mid-table quality) in total. Striker = pretty average RW = pretty average LW = top 2 quality L/R Backs = top 2 quality CM = maybe top 5 quality in total...
  8. Individual Brilliance vs Pattern of play

    The last 35 minutes against Newcastle is a good example of how Ole wants United to play; the pattern of play was very obvious. You can like or dislike our pattern of play, but it’s wrong to say we don’t have a pattern and only rely on individual brilliance. Bruno is a great player, but he also...
  9. Victor Lindelöf | 2020/21 Performances

    Watched Brighton - Palace and have to say I’m impressed of Cahill’s warrior mentality and his leadership on the pitch. He is into his 36y and still a motivated professional, although he has achieved a lot in his career. Why I’m speaking of Cahill? Because he is everything Lindelof isn’t; what I...
  10. Roy Keane

    Watched a long interview with Roy Keane on Norwegian TV2. Many very good reflections. His assessment of Martial was spot on: glimpse of greatness, but lacks character and not our future nr.9. Keane was very calm, humble and almost shy during the interview (surprised), at least until the...
  11. No.1 for next season - De Gea or Henderson?

    Agree De Gea should be sold, but I think Henderson is more than good enough to be our nr.1 GK, and he only will become better.
  12. Post match vs Newcastle United

    I only watched the game from approx the 54th minute. Not much to complain about. From that point it was a good performance. So if the last part of the game wasn’t representative, I recommend people to bring with them the positive from the game. It was a positive experience for me, and I’m happy :D
  13. Post match vs Newcastle United

    Total domination in second half. Our passing quality has become much better lately. Not often I give credit to Matic and James, but today they deserves it..
  14. Erling Haaland

    Just do it! Don’t care if we almost ruin ourselves and it’s our only incoming this summer. City, Real Madrid, United and BM are interesting candidates for Haaland. Barca doesn’t fit him, and PSG is his enemy :D BM is likely the safest bet. Lewandowski is on his last verse, and Haaland...
  15. You have a £80mil Summer Transfer Budget...

    80m + Sale of Martial = Haaland Sale of Pogba = CM or CD
