  1. Post match vs Leeds United

    I don't rate Dan James as a first team player for Manchester United but you can't deny his work rate and effort. However, having said that what was wrong with starting Greenwood on the right and Cavani in the middle? They both give you EFFORT and more importantly a stroke of genius when needed...
  2. Post match vs Burnley

    Great performance all round. The one main benefit I feel United have gained from the last three games is that it is evident the further away Martial is from the starting line-up the better off we will be! Better to start with 10 outfield players than just 9.
  3. Post match vs Istanbul Basaksehir

    Don't forget Cavani is still coming to grips with the language. In just the short introductions he's shown that sulking, pretentious little french shit on the left how the number 9 position should be played. Hopefully he'll learn from Edison. Can't see it happening. He'll go to his other french...
  4. Passing - Players or bad coaching

    A good passing team is down to tactics. It is very simple. If you are in possession - you need options to pass to. Which basically means your teammates should be working off the ball to provide an option. Clearly this isn't happening at the moment. For all the criticism Matic receives on this...
  5. Finally, an informative view of the game from the perspective of someone who was at OT. I...

    Finally, an informative view of the game from the perspective of someone who was at OT. I agree wholeheartedly with your comments. Would you agree that our basic weak-point is our lack of pysical presence in Midfield when defending?
  6. Post match vs Liverpool

    I was watching Roy Keane pre-match just prior to kick-off, the look on his face watching the United players in the tunnel - priceless.
  7. Manchester United vs Liverpool: right now would you just settle for a draw?

    I haven't followed anything about United for some four weeks now. I don't even know who is available other than DeGea and Pogba won't be starting because of a notification from the App. All I want to say if Matic, Mata and Young play in the same team tonight it will be a very bad/sad/rotten...
  8. Post match vs Crystal Palace

    Same old .. same old. It doesn't take a genius to work out that most opposition teams have worked out Ole's game plan and put in place tactics to stifle it. Why do we play this slow square passing game at the back and in front of the opposition box? With the supposed pace and skill we have with...
  9. Post match vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

    Very poor performance today. Too many passengers. Shaw is a weakness at left-back and is too often exposed by players attacking him on the run. His positioning is just woeful to watch. I still can't understand how Lingard gets a game. That miss-kick in the box - just unbelievable. No excuses pal...
  10. Solskjær press conference vs Everton (A)

    Having read most of the above comments my thoughts are this: The only reason Ole got the job was that he was able to provide a temporary reprieve and an almost fake belief that things had turned around at the Club. I like most posters on this forum agree that there is a core group of players...
  11. Post match vs Burnley

    When will it dawn on the heirarchy: YOU CANT HAVE MATA, JONES AND YOUNG PLAYING IN THE SAME TEAM FFS! Please Ole tell me they made you play these below par squad players against your own comprehensive opinion?
  12. Post match vs Reading

    A bit late to cover this - but a little curiosity on my part. Was watching highlights of the game and saw the bit when Sanchez was in OLG's seat and he asked him to move. What do you think he was whispering to him? Something along the lines of "I know your'e getting paid a little bit more than...
  13. If we finish 4th, should Ole get the job full time? [Poll added]

    Having just watched the Man City v Liverpool game and looking at the intensity, defensive mindset, positional play and attacking prowess of both teams I am not so sure that we can compete with those guys this season. Both teams do not carry passengers when they play. Ole has done a fantastic...
  14. Post match vs Newcastle United

    You guys in the UK have it easy. Try getting up at 3:30am to watch your team play. That aside it was an expected performance by Utd last night. 4 games in as many weeks, travelling away to Newcastle and having to contend with Benitiz tacticts. Like most here I agree the Mata/Valencia pairing...
  15. Our Defence

    I have to be careful for what I wish for. As a Man Utd supporter I would love Koulibaly to come to Old Trafford only for his sake. His ability deserves that he plays at a top Club like Utd and wins some medals. But as a Napoli supporter it would saddened me if he moved before winning the...
