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

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

It's a sad day in football when you can't celebrate your first England cap with an awesome foursome, bedding a couple of local floozies. What is the world coming to?

Wan-Bissaka quick and a good defender, but he was also not known offensively, can't cross, dribble or pass. This was all evident before he moved to United also. 

 

Bad recruiting. 

 

 

Can you believe he was a winger in his younger days at CP

Matic, Bruno and Van De Beek in midfield. So much more energy and purpose. Bench Pogba for a few games and use as an impact player when required because he gives the opposition more than he gives us, nothing but lethargy. Give Van de Beek his chance and i guarantee we look better balanced and with more intensity going forward and defending. Then Pogba can go to a Mickey mouse club in January.

Ok I'll take the reins on that 250 word dossier put up by 3-2.

 

Most of it was waffle, especially the Maguire part. He was never an asset he was a decent defender but as I said many moons ago. You need to be strong like John Terry if you act like John Terry off the field and he is definitely not JT. So now he's a liability.

 

Just doing a bit of forensic accounting myself so these posts are a godsend and chance to have a break.

 

Yeah so where's it heading.

 

I don't think it's gonna be as bad as most want it to be.

 

First. OGS will definitely be gone by Christmas. This is a fact.

 

Once that problem is done it can only get better.

 

It's nothing to do with defenders it's the inner workings of united that is their biggest achilles heel. Shaw came from a very well run club and to go from that to this must have affected him. I think also there's too many mancs stuck in the past around the place. They need a wenger type transformation to occur.

 

Pochetino may be the man to kickstart that but one thing is for sure, if he does well at united bigger boys will come knocking and he ain't gonna wait around again that's for sure.

 

It's already 7 years since united won a PL title they are at least 5 years away from competing for one.

 

It's a case of waiting upto 20 years at this point before they lift it and there's a big If needs to go in there too.

 

So to answer the last question put forward by 3-2. Not harsh at all.

Noted by his academy coach as not the best winger, which is apparently why they moved him back.

I think part of the issue is that Pogba and many others feel like they are already at a mickey mouse club. Do you blame them though? I don't think you do.

Somehow Rojo survived the chop, and apparently it was because we turned down offers, rather than couldn't shift him. A bit like Bailly, when he's injury free and on song, he's a good, quick, hard tackling defender. I wonder whether Ole will give him one last chance (contract ending June 2021 I think).

 

I can only assume Jones didn't have any takers, as he isn't anywhere near the subs bench these days.

Manchester United have simple captaincy decision to make

Man Utd captain Harry Maguire has struggled lately and deserves a break from the intense media spotlight at Old Trafford.

Basically he been <deleted> Ole has got to drop him for a couple of games,

Im dreading next week against PSG in Paris,

PSG could be without key defensive figure Marquinhos for the match after the 26-year-old suffered a thigh injury while away on international duty earlier this week.

I think the sensible think is to give him a rest / drop him. I heard somewhere that he'd played the most minutes in football in the world last season, that + his form and the media spotlight must be draining.

 

But there are other elements at play here. For example, as captain I'm sure his pride will make him want to 'stand up and be counted'.

 

Very interesting to see what Ole does.
