  1. The McFred midfield duo

    Fred played well tonight. McTominay looked a bit off it.
  2. Bruno Fernandes | 2021/22 Performances

    Without wishing to be mean, I know he had some key moments, as usual, but I find the match ratings of him interesting as to me he had quite a poor game and was responsible for a lot of good opportunities going awry. We should not be scared to play Pogba ahead of him sometimes.
  3. Post match vs Atalanta

    Belting game! Excellent second half, especially in commitment and application terms. A bit unlucky to be two down at half time, though we remain generally too easy to get at and we overcommit in attack too early in games, especially at home. To my mind that is not that hard to sort out and it...
  4. Aurelien Tchouameni

    I think what you are saying is that the system wouldn't work if you play him with Tchouameni other players in the same midfield?
  5. Best XI now?

    DDG AWB Varane Maguire Shaw McTominay VDB Fernandes Sancho Ronaldo Rashford
  6. Why so many knee-jerk reactions and negativity 7 games in?

    I think we have generally been decent to watch since Ole has been in charge. Definitely better than the team under Mourinho, LVG or Moyes anyway. It does seem like we are a bit too inflexible at times though. We have been naive in a lot of home games especially - so obviously expecting to win...
  7. Aurelien Tchouameni

    Two big name players :)
  8. Manchester United vs Villarreal

    Meh I think we'll win.
  9. Players whose names are accurate

    Alphonse Areola - a bit of a tit
  10. Players whose names are a lie

    Bernd Leno - undamaged by fire Tyrone Mings - smells pretty good Teemu Pukki - is rarely sick at all Kelechi Iheanacho - does not own any Mexican food Juan Mata - increasingly doesn't Ben Chilwell - has problems relaxing Daniel Amartey - no, you're Daniel Max Kilman - does not murder as many...
  11. Manchester United vs West Ham United

    Weird game, we should have won it really. I don't like this writing off of Martial. He is clearly short of confidence but there really is nothing else wrong. He can come good... I know we have crazy options in attack now and he has to be down the list for the moment but really don't want to see...
  12. Phil Jones

    No of course not, and I assume the player himself didn't want to talk about it, which is of course absolutely fair enough, but probably a misjudgement.
  13. Phil Jones

    The only really curious thing about this, IMO, is it took so long for either Jones or the club to explain anything at all about his injuries. So much so that even I started to wonder if the injuries keeping him out last year were partly a bit of cover for him being so down the pecking order...
  14. Phil Jones

    It was a good explanation for sure. I have had a small part of my meniscus removed due to a tear (much more common), and I know the impact of that, so removing the whole meniscus... it's pretty astonishing he could play at all after that. The microfracture stuff can really work... it might even...
  15. Manchester United vs West Ham United

    I reckon they might go for 3 at at the back (Diop, Dawson, Johnson maybe, with Fredericks and Masuaku attacking full backs). If so, we will need to attack down the sides and stretch them across. Sancho, Martial and Lingard behind Cavani or Greenwood should work. Hope Cavani is fit, that would...
