Both players were excellent. Hadn't seen much of the younger Longstaff before but he was really good going forward with his brother anchoring the midfield behind him. Could develop into a brilliant partnership.really impressed with them both today. Definitely a pair to watch out for
I watched the game and thought I was watching a young Paul Scholes.The next Scholes
Would he be willing to drop down to the Championship? Shouldn't we wait and see how does against decent opposition? etc. etc.I watched the game and thought I was watching a young Paul Scholes.
His passing, the way he struck the goal and his tenacity were all similar, but his stature and the way he holds himself was almost identical too!
It will be interesting to see if he can push on from a magnificent debut. If he does, United should be looking at both brothers.
Thing is this isn't even WUM! I'm curious to see how Matty does against, well, an actual midfield, too! Not even by Chelsea standards - just any other midfield in the league.Be curious to see how they fare against an actual midfield when we play them coming out of the international break.
I'm not sure they raise their game. I think our players lower their game.I know we're shit but honestly I'm just soooooooo tired of these average british midfielders in underwhelming teams like West Ham, Newcastle and Crystal Palace raising their game solely against Manchester United. I'm even more tired of them getting a thread of their own as if they are an option for this club.
Yes there’s been very few defeats where I looked at the opposition and thought ‘game raising c#%!s’. Yesterday was all-round dreadful from both teams. Ironically we conceded within the only 10 minute spell where we looked nearly half-decent, and that we might even potentially threaten the Newcastle goal. Once their goal went in, the towel quickly followed.I'm not sure they raise their game. I think our players lower their game.
