Good call Jeppers7.If it looked like Ole was going to play the youngsters and not Matic,Mata,Young,Jones before them I'd be looking forward to the season...but it doesn't look like that. As a season ticket holder after last season it's difficult to see how we aren't better in defence and worse in every other area.
Why any United fan would be buzzing about this season, at this point, City are champions, Liverpool champions of (can't even type the rest), we've had a terrible season and weakened our team. There is a way I think that it could be positive, improve the back four tick, get rid of the tried and tested failures not tick, and move on with Tuanzebe, Gomes, Greenwood but that won't really happen.
So no....not at all. And the rest just seems like top red syndrome. I'll go to games. I'm expecting us to play better to start with but we are lacking quality and I think a few key injuries or the likes of DeGea, Pogba getting pissed off with playing with players below their level, and we could end up with a worse season than last season.
You are not the only one there, my optimism has evaporated quickly as well. I would have never thought that we we'd be this much hopeless after SAF. Ole's at the wheel does not sound that encouraging these days. I feel like a fooled former Brexiteer, who has come to realize that what he/she was wishing for, turned out to be a massive feck-up.
No, not at all. Quite clear in fact. Just goes to show that there a realists and dreamers/fantasists........on here the former are lynched, the latter encouraged, as if it somehow it will have an affect on the team if they are all bigged up on a forum.Cheers, it wasn’t difficult to see happening really was it. FFS who was honestly buzzing for a season where we would obviously struggle and either City would win 3 in a row or the scousers would finally win the league.
'Top reds' are always appreciated, regardless of how delusional they can be..No, not at all. Quite clear in fact. Just goes to show that there a realists and dreamers/fantasists........on here the former are lynched, the latter encouraged, as if it somehow it will have an affect on the team if they are all bigged up on a forum.
You were right to be worried, you clever little sausage. I presume the reasons to be excited were getting to see more of the kids, your Chongs, your Greenwoods, your Lingards etc.I'm worried, but I'd say there's more reasons to be excited for it than last season. So that's a positive.
Errr yeah. I would say this was probably a heart over head moment, I didn't think we'd be scintillating but I was looking forward to high energy and a basic plan of pressurising the opposition to win the ball back and quick, direct attacking...I'm excited, screw the haters
Shows what i know innit.Hmmm.
Who's passing the humble pie around?I'm very excited. We're fitter than last season, we've had a lot of time for Ole and his team to get their tactics in, and the preseason looked good when we we had the first choice midfield playing. We've got a raw pacy and direct attack who've shown glimpses of gelling together, we've still got Pogba to ping magic all around the park. The hyped duo of Greenwood and Gomes will finally get a lot of gametime this year and Rashford looks ready to start being the main man. Most importantly, the defence is sorted with players who're solid in the tackle and can all play out from the back.
As long as Rashford, Pogba and one of Lindelof/Maguire stay injury free throughout the year, I'm quite confident that we'll give Spurs a run for their money and finish 3rd/4th.
Our football was defensive first from 2008 until the end of the Fergie era, and shit thereafter. Expecting a possibility of exciting football wasn't a big stretch when you consider that Ole had already managed it from December till March.Sorry for the quote mate as there is a lot of good material all around but holy feck
Seems like you used the shovel to dig a hole for yourself instead.
You got meNah.
