I reserve my judgement until the end of the season.

Under soil heating.
Everton, a not so easy away tie vs Rooney then City are the next 3. Let's see where we are then.

We’re alright yeah.
If we keep up our form towards the end of the season we could win some trophies, if not Solskjaer will rightfully be gone and it might be back to square one.
Biggest potential end to the season we’ve had post Fergie imo, in terms of importance.

We were good after a decent start. Yes the 10 men did help but lets beat Everton next week. I still do not like the parallel two midfield players. Against better teams we have been found out.

These are the games we've struggled against lately so good to see us start destroying them again. Some tough fixtures coming up, but we seem to be on the right track at the moment. Bruno is a game changer of a signing, finally got a replacement for Pogba.

Yep, I think our upcoming games will paint a better picture of where we are.

That has to be our consistent level.

Full of pace, power, energy, ruthless with waves of attacks and not being happy at 1 or 2 nil.

Key thing that stood out for me was Shaw’s run - roughly 80mins in, already 3-0 up and the left back bombs the length of the pitch to contribute to an attack. That is completely different mentality to previous seasons post-Fergie.

Can genuinely see Pogba staying on along with Bruno you know

Honestly we are only a couple of top signings away from challenging.

The key is consistency though, we would be up there this season had we not dropped points to teams we should be beating.

We can be devastating when we're given space, which we were against a 10 man Belgian side. 11 men behind the ball away to Burnley is a different story.

We're actually not.

We're actually miles away from even being decent.

People creaming themselves over a 5-0 home win against 10 men Belgian no-hopers.

Too much damage done, he's long gone. But that doesn't worry me as much as it did a few months ago.
I wouldn't be adverse to selling providing we buy again. Grealish would do nicely. Wouldn't be happy him moving on without another bit of quality in the midfield.

I actually reckon we might’ve won some other matches this season imo.

We're alright... and we're still missing Rashford too.

I just want to see what our fully fit first team can do

Played against a poor side but its great that the team look positive.

Shows what signing players who want to be here does to a club.

Bruno is life. I actually think Igahlo will be an absolute bagsman for us on the brief appearances he's made for us...
