Wobbles like a massive pair of tits

Hopefully that goal gives him a bit of confidence and he can find a run of form.
Fair enough... I'm more cynical in the sense that if we need a Koulibaly next to him and Makelele type in front of him then he probably wasn't the right purchase given budgetary constraints. Smalling-Lindelof with an £80m mobile DM (with Bissaka and Williams that we didn't have last season) would be in my view be far more effective for that kind of systemI don't think it's one or the other. You want them both to be able to without the worry of leaving the space. You want more options. A quality CDM allows Maguire to step forward, it doesn't mean the CDM can't. One of Maguires strengths is coming forward with the ball.
Also I don't really recall Maguire ever really being exposed and left for dead. I feel that weakness is exaggerated and it hasn't really been a problem despite his lack of speed. The whole defensive unit has been awful which includes those infront of him. A pacey CDM and CB next to him opens up more options.
A fit Bailly, Tuanzabe or Koulibally type player is perfect next to Maguire. The energy of Somoure, Fred/McTominay and Fernandes with that defence would be unreal.
I'm an optimist when it comes to United.
Yep, I wasn't that surprised it went in. I remember him scoring a goal like that last year from outside the box at a tough angle that went right into the bottom corner; giving the 'keeper no chance.The goal is not just mere of coincidence. I remember he had two similar attempts before this season. Can't remember which game was the 2nd one, the first one was in Arsenal Old Trafford game. He got some locker with his long shoot. Great top bin corner goal.
Well in fairness, he did pass the ball straight to a city player 8 yards from his own goal. I mean as flaws go it's a fairly big one. 95% of the time that would be the reason the team lost the game.Brilliant performance but people would still find flaws.
Point is the amount of criticism he has been getting has been overexagerrated. People have already called him a deadwood and some say smalling was better when in reality both are joke comments. Has Maguire been outstanding? No, but has he been crap, no he has not been.Well in fairness, he did pass the ball straight to a city player 8 yards from his own goal.

Although outside of that he was Rio-esque. So overall still a big step forwards.
I think he headed the one last night down and it came of the defenders head because of that and over the bar.Great defensive performance, but seriously how many clear headers on goal has he skied this season? Every time it’s like fecking hell how many is that, and it keeps happening. Must be over 5 now
