  2. Micro managing games…Myth?

    I remember Evans getting a right blllcking off Fergie in a CL game.
  3. Micro managing games…Myth?

    Tactical anarchy is a tactic. Look, the point is that you do not need regimented attacking play; you need tactical awareness of how best to defend in transition. It's more a comment on the constant request for "We can't attack without a proper tactical mastermind." The players have to think...
  4. Micro managing games…Myth?

    SAF wanted his attacking teams from Aberdeen right through to United to be tactically unpredictable in attack generally speaking save for some specific scenarios/games. Del Bosque was genuinely amazed at how much of a gambler SAF was in that particular match; hence he rightly described it as...
  5. Micro managing games…Myth?

    This. The obsession with tactical savants - beyond some key games - belies our traditional maverick approach to attacking play. SAF and Ole want unpredictability in attack regularly; the issue is that you can only do this with consistency IF you have a solid back-line -midfield shape/plan. My...
  6. YouTube United channels

    The Mike Phelan interview was fascinating; explains our approach somewhat: "Well? What position did Robson specialize in?" Phelan rhetorically asks I think when Howson rightfully asks "Do we need a dedicated DM?"
  7. YouTube United channels

    Mark Goldbridge is the Match-Day thread personified with more elaboration. Paddock have a good mix of opinions but can't say I like some new potato they have on the match threads. At least they've tried a variety of shows on Paddock; though not always funniest, the PL Psstake is a much needed...
  8. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2021/22 Performances

    Rashford has alot to improve in all-round tactical passing and decision making with and without the ball. I can't wait to see him improve; my suspicion is because he's so fast and quick it simply will take more time and learning for him to adapt the best approaches consistently. No doubting the...

    What did he mean by this?
  10. Alex Ferguson filmed saying Ronaldo should have started

    All I will say is that even the great Sir Alex Ferguson would have "Fergie Out" die-hards, had social media been around the days of Djemba-Djemba .
  11. Ole and xG

    Horrendous. How else will they ever win the prestigious xG League?
  12. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2021/22 Discussion

    Fred will literally cost him his job. Ole's biggest flaw is in-game management and his inability to shape our midfield patterns or strategy. At home, today, we were far too open and Dean did him tactically.
  13. Harry Maguire | 2021/22 Performances

    Will struggle to hit the heights of the levels of Rio or Varane; needs to work on his game especially decision making.
  14. Chelsea appoint Thomas Tuchel

    A proper Team. Tuchel is very dangerous if he keeps this up. The team intelligence especially when the players get pressed is astonishingly high; nearly always the best decisions made across the pitch by his players. I would put them as League favourites if his squad stays healthy.
