24 hours behind the transfer muppets
My friend, I assure you that MMM are not the same as BBC.
I remember when people were talking about Martial winning the Ball on Dor.
I also remember when Luke Shaw was the best LB in the country and when he got injured, he became one of the best in the World and that he could single handedly win us the league.
And now (based on a win against Burnley), I see that MMM is being talked up.

Put it this way, if MMM improve beyond our wildest expectations, they would still fall well short of BBC (or MSN of Barcelona).
To put this into context, as to just how bad/good our attackers are: LFC have scored 46 goals. We have scored 32. And LFC have played 2 games less than us.

People need to start managing their expectations, otherwise they are in for massive disappointment.

A few good example happened a only a few hours ago: I read that Haaland has signed for Dortmund. Many fans had absolutely convinced themselves that he was joining us and have now been left dejected.
We need to be realistic and accept that board would like us to be a 4th place club, though realistically, we are a top 6 club, where if results go our way, we could make 4th place. I believe our average finishing place since SAF retired is 5th, which falls in line with this. The playing staff we buy, will be in line with what you'd expect of a 4th-6th place team.
MMM have an average age of 21.3. You have to give them time.

They have scored 34 goals in all competitions.

The rest of the squad has 12 goals


Mane,Salah and Firmino has 33 goals.

The rest of the squad has 35 goals.


Our front three have been fine. We need to get them better service and have more goalscorers in midfield.

Midfield and fullbacks (attacking-wise) are where they are so much stronger than us.

They can be even better. We need a top coach badly
Why should a 'top' coach reap the benefits of Solskjaer's hard work in clearing the decks and promoting youth?

This is Solskjaer's side. They are growing with him and will get better with him.

I just want to see Pogba on the pitch with these three.

Please.

Fernandes.
Mmmeh.

Having watched him quite a bit, I've never really been sold on him, and said so in the summer, too.

Still, I'm not opposed to the transfer either. Despite not being a bit fan, I'd take him over Pereira and Lingard in the 10 position all day everday. And twice on Sunday's.

Think the three of them can get 60 this season for sure. Dan James should hopefully take his rightful place as a squad player next season, and look to add about 10 of his own next season.

I just wish they gelled together better, especially Rashford and Martial. A very good 10, though, might make that happen. Maybe Pogba when he comes back.

Top coach might not even play them.

Ole has shown a lot of balls in putting his trust in these relatively unproven guys, it could have easily backfired for him.

Imagine how effective these guys could be with a functional midfield behind them?

Ole should get a lot of credit for getting these guys consistently improving and motivated

It feels like the first time in years that we have a set of attackers who work well together

Still think Martial can improve his overall game... also if we can find one player who can play from the right and is left footed and has similar pace as Rashford, we will be unstoppable. We still need a backup striker, ideally somebody who is tall, has good holdup play and can head the ball.

Really think we need to gamble on Ousmane Dembele. If he clicked,along with Rashford he can form a wide striker partnership which will be more devastating than Salah and Mane.

I forgot about Dembele on the right! If Sancho goes to Chelsea I’d say Dembele could be our big signing.

Slight worries about his mentality but as he matures his skill set may pay off big time. Robben not making the grade at Madrid for example. Bayern got super lucky there.

I'd be more worried of his injury record - he's one of those athletes who are so explosive that they will always be susceptible to injuries. Then again so was Robben.

Worth to note, MMM trio is only 5 goals away from equalizing our trio of top 3 scorers in all competition last season, if they score another 26 goals this season, it'll be our highest goal-scoring tally trio ever since 2007-08 trio of Ronaldo Tevez Ronney.

eg. Pep and Foden.

It's just so tedious, stupid and utterly boring that people will find any reason to link Ole Out into every/any thread. Cant have any discussion here without some stupid agenda being driven.

I see the Manchester United official Twitter page are slow to catch on


Now it time to see when the world will realize that these three will give us one of the best attack in the world

They are absolutely on fire. Needless comparison/pressure, though.

So, you are saying that these kids are secretly Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo?

So many questions.
