Had a scandinavian feel about it this match. Ole is Norwegian  Lindelof Swedish Ericsson Danish Spurs can't Finnish.

How good is the Maguire, Lindelof pairing....    

Thanks for the good wishes Rick.   Frankly I have got a little tired of that strange man from the blue side of Manchester stalking me and constantly asking "where are you from ?" "where did

Who else on here thinks Lingard is just not good enough

he missed 2x clear scoring opportunities that a skilled striker would have hammered into the back of the net

 

The missed penalty has already been addressed

He's far from perfect. But let's not forget he does pop up with important goals, like FA Cup final for example.

pop up the odd time is not good enough - we need someone special that can consistently put the ball in the net - Lukaku was supposed to be it but failed miserably - I never once thought he was up to the standard needed

But Jessie isn't a striker mate - I think you might be getting him mixed up with Martial?

 

For me he is a decent squad player, and a good defensive choice for attacking centre mid (if that makes sense?) when we want to close down the opposition all over the park.

 

Let's not forget about the positives..... Maguire and AWB were immense... James aquitted himself well, but I hope he doesn't pick up an Ashley Young reputation as a diver.

Crushing? I'll say one thing about you Rick, you're the most positive ManU fan I think we've had in all the years I've been on this forum. You really don't see too many negatives with your boys do you. What position you going to finish this season (im expecting you to say third)?

I wouldn't like to commit right now. What we know is that looks a United side which plays in a completely different way, and is far more defensively stable. 

 

I wouldn't rule us out as title contenders at this stage.

Rashford is 6 out of 6.

Pogba is 13 out of 18.

10 at senior level and 3 at 'junior' level.

All the players that were not involved in the Wolves game played a behind closed doors game against a Sheffield United last Tuesday. Rojo and Fred didn't play the latter poses a ? mark maybe an injury? Funnily enough with the style OGS is trying to play I think Fred, could he get up to the PL standard could be a useful inclusion.

Playing against them  Ravel Morrison, remember him ? Ferdinand always said one of the best talents to ever come through the academy until he went off the rails.

A remote family member who works at Carington said Gomes was used in a no 10 position and looked very capable and for his small stature tough as nails.

I'd settle for 4th place and a good run in the cups but I wouldn't rule anything out at this early stage The priority for me from is the way they are trying to play,breathe of fresh air.Just light on another striker IMO.Average age last weekend 24 lowest in the league a team that can grow.

Positivety gone wild :cheesy:

Are you sure?... If it really was completely unthinkable I would have got more slaughtered for that comment. 

 

I think everyone knows in the back of their mind, if things start going for 'the new United', these two foreign outfits playing in the Prem might be in trouble.
