  1. Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United

    This is bad as bad can be.
  2. We’ve criminally underused Matic and Mata these past few seasons

    Let's not get carried away. Matic looked shattered when he was playing two games a week for us. Mata is good but has physical limitations.
  3. Juan Mata | 2021/22 Performances

    Have I missed something? Has Mata actually confirmed that he's leaving? I know it's almost certain but we thought that last year.
  4. Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United

    Penultimate game Nearly there guys
  5. Players you would get rid of.

    Stay De Gea - We'll have to swap him out for a more modern 'keeper at some point but not a priority Lindelof - Could be decent squad player/retrained in another position Varane - Fantastic Shaw - We've seen Shaw be first class Fred - Could suit Ten Hag Bruno - Out best player despite a bad...
  6. Ronaldo asked Bruno to take the penalty

    Maybe Ronaldo didn't feel up to it after what happened? That would be weird as he started today and looked on it all day. The only thing I can think of is that they have some informal rotation system. Ronaldo started taking the pens after Bruno missed vs Villa (I think). Ronaldo missed vs...
  7. Jurriën Timber

    One of the things that makes me nervous about Ten Hag is the possibility of him bringing loads of Eredivisie players who can't hack it in the Prem. However I do like the look of Timber. It's almost impossible for him to be worse than our current options of at RB and CB
  8. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2021/22 Performances

    Sometimes you have to stand back to see how far Rashford has fallen. He can't get into this United team! Elanga starts ahead of him and deservedly so. When Ronaldo was injured we played Bruno instead of him. He's out of the England squad. He's out of our starting XI and if his performances...
  9. Jadon Sancho | 2021/22 Performances

    I can't wait to see him playing under Ten Hag. He's got everything. He just needs to coached and he'll do the business.
  10. Bruno Fernandes’ “Bad Season”

    He's had a bad season. I still love Bruno and he's one of the very few players I'd be desperate to see here in 5 years time.
  11. Let’s not make Europe next season

    I think it would be very useful if we qualify for the Europa or even the Europa Conference League for a few reasons: - Ten Hag is a systems coach and he's going to need all the games he can get in order to implement his system. - It'll give Ten Hag an opportunity to try out loads of young...
  12. Mikel Arteta | Lego Pep watch

    God I dislike Mikel Arteta.
  13. How will you remember Pogba's time at United?

    Amazingly talented and he had some good moments. Became a circus after his first season with us. Unfortunately I'll remember him for the injuries and the long drawn out recovery sessions in Dubai and Miami. I think he wanted out quite early but found himself marooned here by circumstance...
  14. Arsenal vs Manchester United

    Can you get a new manager bounce when the new manager hasn't started yet?
  15. What are your expectations for Ten Hag's first season?

    - Implementing a recognisable style of play - New signings bedding in - A clear out - A top 4 challenge and a good cup run. - A good challenge for the Europa if we qualify
