  1. Is being a defender more difficult nowadays?

    I think a lot more is expected of defenders these days, like being good on the ball, and being involved in the buildup etc. So they are also likely to make huge mistakes, like getting caught out of possition, being exposed on the break etc. Also, attacks have evolved over time, now teams break...
  2. Luke Shaw | 2020/21 Performances

    I'm so glad our patience with Luke is finally paying reward! What a performance. Full credit to him for the effort he put to overcome his injuries, and the toll it would have taken on his mental health. (And of course to Ole for supporting him). I still remember Jose's post match comment after...
  3. Dean Henderson | 2020/21 Performances

    It was so good to see him coming out of the line and leaping to claim the ball. He also seems to have very good positional awareness of the outfield players. The way he made a save, immediately came out and threw it straight to Fred which eventually lead to our 3rd goal was a thing of beauty.
  4. Alex Telles | 2020/21 Performances

    Pretty good game considering that he is our backup LB. That pass to Bruno which lead to the Rashford missed chance was top notch! Wish we could get a similar backup option for RB.
  5. Luke Shaw | 2020/21 Performances

    So true. Thankfully we stuck to Shaw and Ole gave him all the support and time to rediscover his real ability. We really must wonder how many youngsters' careers the narcissistic and egomaniac Mourinho has destroyed over his time at various clubs. He has time and patience only for finished...
  6. 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...
  7. 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.
  8. Jesse Lingard | 2020/21 Performances

    I didn't watch the game - did Lingard come in off the left or the right?
  9. 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...
  10. 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.
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
