IF we've got any sense we'll be putting in most of the work for this signing in January to seal it for the summer. But I won't be holding my breath.
I'm sure we'll be 'monitoring the situation closely' and 'considering a bid'....:rolleyes:

He got sold short on the backpass and then square v Rashford is always a problem.

After that run in the early in the second half where he looked absolutely bollocksed afterwards and didn't seem able to get back at all a mate just text me "Marking 16 Positioning 15 Tackling 14 Acceleration 15 Pace 16 Dribbling 14 Flair 17 Stamina 2" which made me smile.

If Maguire or Lindelof served up that. Doesn't bear thinking about.

I think the phase of play where he won the ball impressively, went on a nice driving run then lost the ball stupidly and looked like he was running through treacle trying to get back as Martial steamed in behind him sums his night up

Looks great apart from getting done for two of the three goals.
Lost the ball high up the field which led to the handball pen shout..
Lost the ball there and Cavani scored (offside)

Shit game really..

Not saying he is a bad defender.. but all defenders make mistakes.. people need to stop overreacting everytime one of ours does.

Overindulgent in his pushing forward because of his pace and physicality and Naglesmann's seemingly gung-ho approach. Assuming it works well in the Bundesliga, but forwards like Rashford will eat him for toast if he plays like that in big games like this.

I don’t see what the fuss is about, he looked gassed before half time. He is decent on the ball but turns and accelerates like a fridge, his positioning is poor as well. I’d take Axel over this guy all day and he isn’t better than Maguire/Victor for sure.

Looks like all of RB lost their head after Rashford's first goal was given on VAR. Big mental collapse from the team, credit to Rashford and Fernandes being incredibly sharp when they came on though

He wasn't wonderful was he tonight, had a few decent moments and looks an imposing unit. Really struggled tracking back at one point when he lost possession- if maguire did that their would be a whole new thread about him on here.

We had the beating of him all night but what Rashford then went and done to him belongs on Pornhub

He made a lot of good contributions on the ball, one or two defensively but he couldnt live with a hot Fernandes and Rashford.

Does make you wonder how our defence would do against our attack...

at one stage I thought he was looking like RIo and Vidic rolled into one

finished the game looking more like Titus Bramble

Nights like this happen to all defenders. I remember when fergie went to watch Alessandro Nesta play in the derby against Roma with a view to buying him. He had an absolute nightmare, with fergie watching.

Tactics have alot to do with it. Upamencano still has the recovery pace that none of our centre backs other than Tunanzebe have.

Seen him 3 or 4 times now and not sure yet
He has all the attributes going forward and He is still very young so definitely not the finished article yet

Our defenders are actually good 1 on 1 defenders. We bodied Neymar and Mbappe just last week

So hard to judge that tbf. I thought Kounate 6 was a lot better. The reluctance as always was were we that good, did he have an off day or did we find something out. I hope the former as he is clearly a beast, just hope more Vidic less Bailly

Looked good to begin with, then got done for pretty much every goal. Surprise surprise our current defenders are actually quite good...

He's never lost a professional football game 5-0 before. You never forget the team that spanks you like that. United just meant something to him right now like United did to RVP with that 8-2 slapping.
