The official Manchester United thread 2019


Recommended Posts

I have to say Luke Shaw surprised me yesterday,  he was world class.  Maybe all the injuries made us forget how good he really is. Let's see if he can continue the good run.

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

Yeah bloody good player... Think the 'world class' is a bit ott.. BUT the injuries have 100% taken a yard of pace away from him.. if the injuries hadn't happened   then probably .....when he arrived at utd he often made pacy runs flyin past opponent's   now... It's down to his timing and nouce. Which imo is really good        Oh..just a side thingy    I did a course with a guy who worked at xoachin side of Southampton when  shaw was there.. apparently.when he was lookin for a move his old man and Shaw was repping him himself m.. apparently Jose was at the chavs att and Shaw walked in and TOLD Jose what he wanted in a v v 'direct manner' ... Needless to say Jose didn't sign him and so the story went he left the chavs with a sharp and to the point 'summery' from Jose.

2 opinions from former Liverpool players on ESPN FC today that agree with...

 

Steve Nicol - Salah is a player that relies on moments of genius. When his magic wand isnt working he doesn't have much left.

 

Don Hutchinson - United definitely didn't 'do a Spurs' against Liverpool. We were under pressure for the first 30 mins and after that the game was pretty even.

Let's embrace the feeling of a title race tonight... City play first then it's our turn. We need to get back to winning ways.

 

If we can keep in the race you just never know. I still think we could play much better especially where finishing is concerned.

2-0 or what?

I'll take any win. I'm a bit jumpy about tonight. We are creating chances which is a good thing, but our finishing needs to improve.

 

If we have a good first half then 2-0... why not. Let's be patient and grow into the game.

I think any Man U supporter would, at the start of the season be surprised to see where they are on the table. However, and only my opinion, until the team gets more balance any trophy is quite a way off.

 

By that I mean the continuing absence of a real right wing, and not a fill in, and a genuine 20 goals + striker which they don't have.

 

Have never considered Rashford or Martial, as yet,  to have the instinct to be a genuine "street smart" number 9 and OGS seems a little reluctant to start Cavani regularly in the position. Bringing him on with 20 minutes to go is just not productive to him getting his goal tally up. His ability to create space and make runs without being constantly offside is his strength. 

 

Currently Fernandes is way in front in goal tally, albeit through many from the spot, but if he doesn't fire, like the last 2 games, we are pretty toothless.

 

United haven't had a genuine right winger for quite a few seasons .Greenwood is not a natural winger. Probably have to go back to when Valencia was a converted winger to RB but had the ability to get forward and provide crosses and having Pogba or Fernandes out to the right is not where they should be, they must play in more central roles.New signing, or Diallo, in time might  solve that but its currently a very lopsided approach. Of course they had potentially one in Zaha but gave him away for ,from memory, 4 million.

 

The defence seems to have sorted itself out .Was surprised Lindelof was selected and played well against Liverpool and maybe he will rotate with Bailly to partner Maguire. Tuanzebe is more than capable for rotation with WB and Luke Shaw if he can stay fit is undroppable.

 

Anyway its only the half way point and this is a weird season, even the bookies don't have a clue.

 

cheers

Yes sparks I'm seeing a VERY strong balanced defence with good competition for almost every spot.  A midfield that can hold and make a goalscoring contribution and a four man strike force thats scoring and overall WILL give a decent return...atm for me Ollie's got his squad about bang on the money   Next to the resurgent city I make you my favs for the prem.

I'm still in 2 minds with Pogba. He scores a goal like he can but then in the first few minutes when we needed to put a stamp on the game he goes missing. Still not a CDM for me, yet he made the difference attacking wise.
