  1. Andreas Pereira vs Jesse Lingard

    I don't think any United fan with ambition would be upset if either or both got moved on this summer. I'd be delighted, as I feel both highlight the current averageness of some squad players. Andreas seems to be a bit more grounded and more likeable, but he is still woefully short of what we...
  2. Which position should Ole prioritise in the summer?

    Right winger - we haven't had a proper, effective RW for decades it seems (exaggerating but you know) CDM - I still feel that we lack decent protection for the back 4 when Matic plays. He's genuinely ok when on the ball but not effective enough to protect and cover. Fred isn't positionally...
  3. Should we sell David De Gea?

    DDG hasn't been our best player for a few seasons. He is one of the highest earners and I don't feel he warrants such a wage. I'd swap him for Henderson in the summer, without question.
  4. Club Brugge vs Manchester United

    I’m pleased in a way that Ole is prioritising the league over this tournament. This line up shows as much. Looking at the team I expect us to get beaten tonight - Brugge as a good side.
  5. The Deadwoods Assassinated by Babyface

    Because, like I said in the post, we can’t replace and boot out all those we don’t seem good enough in a couple of windows. We still need some depth in an already thin squad. Both of those players can still play a part in some way as there isn’t enough coming through to replace them just yet. As...
  6. The Deadwoods Assassinated by Babyface

    We need to be realistic about how many more players we can release without replacements. There aren’t that many coming through the ranks that can step up next season. Key players to shift: Sánchez - doesn’t fit and big wages. Needs replacing. Rojo - clearly not wanted and not good enough...
  7. Post match vs Chelsea

    Finally got around to watching the full 90 minutes this afternoon. I'm enjoying seeing this United side battle for a win last night at a tough place for us of recent years. I think we deserved the win. My biggest point on the game (VAR aside) was how we desperately need to drop Daniel James - if...
  8. Mino Raiola talksport interview

    The bloke is an absolute rat, who cares little for any club or client he’s just looking for his next big pay day - and moving Pogba will be one of the biggest. Lingard can feck right off for signing with him and I hope he never plays another minute in a United shirt. If the club do business...
  9. Can we get top 5?

    If Fernandes can do the job of a number 10 when others have failed, then we can achieve top 5 finish. Whilst the overall play has been poor to watch, we are still a pretty difficult team to beat. Our lack of goal threat is what is holding us back. Hopefully, Igahlo can chip in with a few goals...
  10. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    I expect us to play 3CBs, and 5 across the middle with 2 up top. Chelsea will need to win as much as us tonight, so I expect them to come at us. We will sit and try and hit them on the break. Marital and James up top (I'd prefer Greenwood but Ole always plays James for pace). CM of Fernandes...
  11. Solskjær sack watch | 2019/20 edition

    I always thought he’d get until the end of the season but I feel the potential for finishing 5th providing a CL slot, it may change it all. Deafest against Chelsea tomorrow and the club will be nervous. Arsenal, Spurs, Sheffield Utd are all picking up points whilst our draws are starting to take...
  12. Which striker should we sign this summer?

    I see Woody’s latest briefing has done the trick and got the Caf excited about half a dozen signings this summer.
  13. Odsonne Edouard

    Half the guys I work with are Celtic fans and they think he is the best thing to happen to the club for decades - he is banging the goals in for them, looks class, and is going to make the club a very tidy profit as the fans know he will be sold in the summer. On the times I've watched Celtic...
  14. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2019/20 Discussion

    I feel Ole won’t last into next season because I’ve not seen enough consistency in this team to make his job safe. Top 4 is not going to happen unless we go on a run we haven’t seen since he took the job permanently. Top 6 finish is more than achievable but would that be enough? We’d need to...
  15. Dean Henderson | 2019/20 Performances

    I think DDG will be sold this summer. If a club like PSG is needing a top class keeper, then this summer would be the right time to approach United. Henderson strikes me as the type who would thrive under the United pressure in the press and just press on, like he has done at SU. United don't...
