ChristGreat draw. If OGS is actually what he is touted to be he should have no problem against coaches supposedly inferior to him like Tuchel and Nagelsmann. Bring it on!! 10 points against Paris and Leipzig. We go on as group toppers. Also this is the "Stage" players like Pogba are supposed to own. Let's see how world class he is.
This. We will get 4 points from the PSG games. Maybe even 6. But a lot depends on Rashford finding his best form. Our counterattack mechanism does not work without him.Seeing as OGS record against the better teams Is decent and struggles against the poorer team maybe we can qualify.
They are very different players and we'll have signed Sancho by thenTough group. Last season's finalist and semi finalist in the same group as us. Should be very exiting. If our players needed any motivation to be back in the CL - this is it. Playing against top sides and showing their abilities. This is why players want the CL.
2 games against PSG will be fun to watch, specially after the Paris robbery. Will show us how far Ole has got this team. I remember we never looked like we were going to win, and barely had any spells of pressure. Our progress (or lack of) will be obvious in those fixtures.
We could have had an easier group but if we wanted that, we should have won the Europa and put ourselves in Pot 1. If we get out of this group, the team should feel very confident of going deep in the competition. No easy games.
Can't wait to see how Greenwood will compare to Mbappe and the likes. If he gets off to a flier in the CL - we really could have a superstar on our hands. I always remember Rooney having something extra for big games, and hopefully Mason has a similar streak.
Obviously they are different. Point is that he can go head to head against them and might as well end up with a greater impact on the game.They are very different players and we'll have signed Sancho by then
The draw is not that bad, but looking at the schedule, we don't look to have the squad for it at the momentCL fixtures out tomorrow.

Without stating the obvious Ed needs to pull the finger out and get players in by Monday.
So far they've played Yussuf Poulsen up front. Not as deadly as Werner of course.You still didn't answer the question. Do they play with 10 men?
Yeah, forgot they bought Sorloth. Thank youSo far they've played Yussuf Poulsen up front. Not as deadly as Werner of course.
More of a mobile-type of striker, who understand where to place himself to get to chances. He drifts. Behind him / on the side of him is Dani Olmo and Forsberg.
Edit: And they've bought Sørloth now to replace Werner. Sørloth has had a great season, so no, they will definitely not be playing with 10 men.
Yeah but we ain't realistically winning it unless Ed has a master plan in the final weekend of the window ..we will get absolutely butt fecked in that groupIf your intention is to win the Champions League, not just make up the numbers, then you should be looking at that Group as perfectly fine.
If we don't think we can take at least 10pts from Leipzig and Istanbul we might as well not bother
