    Why am I always filled with optimism before a match when my head knows what is likely to happen?

    The man deserved more respect for keeping them up in a Mike Ashley regime, but ultimately he was never going to be the person to manage a team of superstars going into the future.
  • I'm awaiting an incredible run of form to 97 and 99 points in the next two seasons then, if he stays as manager.

    Liverpool have the toughest group and are qualifying at a canter. We on the other hand are shitting ourselves over Atalanta. FML
  • I don't know who is to blame but I can't believe something so simple is causing us so much problems. Set pieces is dinosaur football. It's straight out of the Fat Sam coaching textbook. It's probably a 10 credit module for the UEFA Class D...
  • Looking at Sancho now, it would have been more likely he was on the bench most of last season rather than help us in a meaningful way but that's all ifs and buts really. Think he's one that'll need a lot of time to adapt. Also I don't think...
  • He's better on the left but unfortunately he's probably not better than Rashford or Martial on the left. Even if he was in form on the left, Ole would never drop Rashford if he's fit. This will lead to Sancho joining Donny on the bench soon...
  • Naw I don't think so. Once Cavani leaves, Greenwood will get more chances in the centre which will leave more chances on the right for Sancho. In the long-term (i.e. when Ronaldo retires), Greenwood will be CF. But, Sancho needs time to get used...
  • Me too. Shaw's defending this season is non-existent.
  • There is no way anyone can convince me that there is good coaching going on, especially in defence. This is not a single brainfart from one person. There are at least 5 brainfarts going on in that picture. It's disastrous in the most Sunday...
  • We should have a massive sign on the motorway: System players -----> that way to the Etihad X-factor players-----> Welcome to Old Trafford
  • Yeah but what about the other 89 minutes of that match? What about the SHOCKING defensive structure in that match? We can play well in 10-15 minute spells, no doubt, but if we don't score in that period the mojo and colour just drains from the...
  • AWB---------Lindelof--------Maguire-----------Shaw Sancho-------McT------------Fred------------------Rashford ----------------Cavani----------Ronaldo----------------------------
  • I'd rather go out in the first knockout stage of the CL and have no European football then wait for Ole to bottle another Europa League final Pride aside, one round in the knockout stages of the CL probably gives us more money than the entire...
