  1. Alex Telles | 2020/21 Performances

    We surely have to change the way we play. Rashford can now afford to tuck in more with Telles maintaining width on the left. We may now have to turn to a double pivot of probably Matic and Fred or Fred and McT to give defensive cover for his marauding runs. This may have worked out well had we...
  2. Juan Mata | 2020/21 Performances

    Mata now has 13 goal contributions (5G+8A) in his last 15 starts for Utd. Pretty valuable player to have in the squad.
  3. Jesse Lingard | 2020/21 Performances

    I didn't watch the game - did Lingard come in off the left or the right?
  4. How would you rate United's 19/20 Season?

    6/10, although the way things ended (FA cup exit, Europa exit, and our performances int eh last few PL games )makes me feel the season ended somewhat on a bitter note. We clearly need to strengthen depth especially in wide areas. And given the competitive nature of the PL, this season's...
  5. United v Chelsea 2006-2008

    The Bridge was such a strong fortress back then. I hated us playing there. 86 game unbeaten run at home, and no body is anywhere close. That's just mind-blowing.
  6. Juan Mata | 2019/20 Performances

    His passing was slightly off today and some of the attempted risky passes didn't work out (He himself admitted that in the post-match interview). Missed a good chance in the first half. But I'm glad he finished the game with a goal. Good give and go to Fred - nice movement by him and killer...
  7. Would Ander Herrera get in this team?

    What a joke. I hope you are not talking about some other player. Herrera was more than average and decent in his first 3 seasons. In the 14/15 season he was played in a variety of roles,CAM, Box to Box and CDM roles. He had 13 and 11 G+A in his first 2 seasons inspite of playing just around...
  8. Would Ander Herrera get in this team?

    This is such a pointless thread, but since I see many people having short term memories I have to say this. Herrera was among our only good signings since SAF retired and the man himself would have loved to have Herrera in his squad. There was a clear difference between when he played for us...
  9. 12 months since Mourinho was sacked and we've arguably gone backwards

    United under Jose's first season was waaay better than what we are now. Don't know how you could forget the countless draws were we created so many chances, for us to miss them or the GK to turn out world class at OT. We created far more chances back then, Zlatan was the striker that year who...
  10. Ole Gunnar Solskjær | 2020/21 Discussion

    Under Ole, we will be a half decent counter attacking team at best. whatever squad he has at his disposal. If we are aiming for a 7th-12th place finish, keep Ole. He is clearly not qualified enough the improve our attacking play. We need a better manager. The whole thing about 'getting the...
  11. The key players that will decide our season

    Martial, Rashford: Really have to be scoring at least 15 goals in the PL. Mata: Really has to be taking a share of the creative burden. We can't expect Pogba to do everything on his own. I don't expect Lingard to add much apart from running around.. With Ole playing Mata in his preferred...
  12. Not enough Goalscorers

    I am not saying Mata is going to have a great season. I'm just saying that we are in a spot of bother when our season rests on expecting Pogba and Mata to be our creative sparks, and relying on Martial and Rashford for the kind of goal tallies they have never had before. I am sorry to say...
  13. Not enough Goalscorers

    With Pogba being our only creator, it is easy for our opponents to stifle us, all they need to do is man mark Pogba out of the game. Not signing Dybala or Fernandes means, Mata needs to have a big season and share Pogba's creative burden, if we are to have any chance of making it to the top 4...
  14. What is the absolute minimum that United should achieve next season?

    The bare minimum is a season like LVG's first season in terms of results: finished in top 4, played good football at least for some spells (especially the Spring of 15), beat top teams.
  15. Ander Herrera | 2018/19 Performances

    Good bye Herrera. We let our most consistent post Fergie era signing to walk away for free. We will miss you. I love Man Utd more than the individual players, but Herrera was one player on whom I had a special affection for and I am sad he is leaving us, especially when we are in a difficult...
