Anyone seen the Sanchez article in the mail?

Basically it sounds like a response to Scholes criticism of him, and saying he is not used to Joses tactics.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2018 20:11:33
Reports that McKenna will be the 3rd additon to the JM staff. If he can manage to implement his style on JM and the team then that will make for a refreshing change next season.

Nice to promote within. Would be nice to see Jose perhaps delegate and appoint someone who can sort of the attacking side of the game. Some sort of cohesion and plan wouldn’t go a miss.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2018 20:06:20
Fans on here seem obsessed with this right winger we need, our main issue is the RB and LB. If our forward players stay wide or cut inside like Martial, Mata, Sanchez etc then the full back must push on and overlap (Neville did it for years) . At present we have Valentia who stops every time and plays the ball back, it's hard to believe he was ever a winger. Sort out our full backs and we will immediately look better going forward by creating more problems for teams.

I wonder what's Jose asks the players to do?

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed025's Note - not get beat..

21 May 2018 20:28:08
Exactly ED. Josh’s team talk is don’t concede and we don’t loss. Then he hopes someone will manage to score the odd goal.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i think your spot on PTD..

21 May 2018 20:31:46
Valencia used to have the engine to get up and down the pitch but ever since his mid season injury (West Brom away? ) he looks to have lost it. I don't think it's tactical that they sit and wait for the ball to come back to them.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2018 21:15:57
So maybe not fully commit the fb until your a goal or 2 up .
If your fb is in the last third don't lose possession and get caught out of position, find feet support the attack .
Don't just lob it in the box?

Agree0 1Disagree

21 May 2018 15:58:18
Seeing as the defence is just as important as attack for jose, why not go nuts out and sign not only alderweirald but also eric dier, i think dier could be the leader needed, give the spuds shaw, smalling and jones, heck give them martial if it gets the deal over the line, at least that way its put to bed now, and not spent in a bidding war over the summer on players from other leagues who normally take a season to settle in, spend extra if needed, just get players in so the team can hit the ground running, hungry and angry for wasting last season, splash the cash now.

Agree0 10Disagree

21 May 2018 17:20:47
Wow, give them 4 players so that we can get an average defensive midfielder who has never won a thing? Talk about an overreaction / absolute nonsense.

Agree9 0Disagree

21 May 2018 17:27:07
Not a fan of Dier myself, he gives the ball away a lot, very average at most parts of the game. He can make good last ditch tackles and is decent in the air, but we'd get our pants pulled down for Spurs weak link imo.

Agree5 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - very average for me beast..

21 May 2018 18:20:04
What about lindelof?
30 odd mil didn't even make the bench for the final .
Have we Give up in him.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 May 2018 18:37:00
Dier is so average it’s painful. I would like to see Alderweireld come in but we already have two very good young cbs at the club who we should be building our defence around. Lindelof and bailly have hardly been allowed to play together or build an understanding. That is 60m spent on defenders the manager wanted. No point buying more if he is going to just bench them for dumb and dumber (jones and smalling) . Perhaps giving bailly and lindelof an opportunity to make the position there own would be the best way forward. It’s not rocket science.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 May 2018 18:37:22
Dier is often exposed and slow thinking. He is no better than Phil Jones at CB or CM.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 May 2018 18:42:06
Lindelof improved a lot over the season, just think he needs a good run instead of the odd game, shame he never really got to try and build a partnership with Bailly this season.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 May 2018 19:15:15
Alderweild and Erickson will be my pick of the Spurs team.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 May 2018 20:11:20
Glad to se eopinions to my own on dier I think he’s dire (waheyyy) he doesn’t offer anything really, bad being a utility player. Think I’d rather have jones as much as he makes mistakes he puts 110% every game.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2018 20:35:50
Fair do, i was just thinking maybe its time to buy players who know the league, as for dier (dire), fair enough, i just think he could do a job (yes a bad one, before anyone says maybe), but he has leadership quality, look the likes of when tony adams started at the arse, even his own fans called him a donkey, look at john terry at chavski, not blessed with pace or technical ability, but again it was what he brought as a whole that made the fans (and players' wives! ) love him, i see dier in that same mold, clearly the united dressing room is lacking someone to bring them together, and so far there's no-one stepping up;so for me, dier could be that man., but that'll be just me again then!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2018 22:03:52
dose not lindelof play right back for sweeden when asked we could save money there instead of buying shiny new players all the time.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2018 22:21:05
Agreed Cesar never seen the obsession of praise in dier. Never been impressed by him. Too slow as cb and has not got a good enough passing range to play defensive midfield.

Dawz- that would be square pegs in round holes again. Lindelof was bought to play cb and should be played there. Need to start playing players in their proper positions.

Just want to share my two cents about Sanchez and how it impacted our season and see what you guys think.

When we signed him, I wasn't exactly over the moon, like you'd usually be when you sign a big player in the league. He wasn't what we needed at all, nor did it address any of the problems we have seen all season. It made us even more unbalanced and disrupted how we were playing. Around late Dec/ early Jan, we had a pretty settled 11 and were doing okay. I said at the time how it was a more "look what we can do" signing, rather than a properly planned one (over City) . Now this isn't a dig at him or anything, but to me he just doesn't seem a good fit and I'm not sure if we will ever see the best of him (hope I'm wrong) . We desperately needed a RW more at the time (still do) and would of been way more beneficial to our season to sign someone like a Mahrez for example. It's just so frustrating because it's so obvious what we have needed all year and how it's turned out.

The balance in our team has cost us this season and probably impacted how we play in general, so I just hope Mourinho going forward, addresses what we actually need, otherwise this time next year will be even more negative than it already is.

You lot have got suspicious minds .

Agree4 0Disagree

{Ed004's Note - My concern with Sanchez is that I don't know if his poor form is down to not being used to our tactics and just him needing a preseason and bit of time to gel. If we can get him to his best there's very few players around better in his position. However, I'm worried we have seen the best of Sanchez. I can't really tell but he seems like he's lost a yard of pace and I'm worried we are going to see a Rooney like decline}

21 May 2018 16:41:11
Love it Leahy.

'It's always on mind mind', how much it 'all shook up' Martial's season. Maybe we should 'Return to Sender', got a feeling 'it's now or never'. Or simply Sanchez just needs a 'Big Hunk O'Love', but I don't think he'll get it from the 'Devil in Disguise".

Haha fair play guys.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2018 17:13:15
Also yer completely agree Ed, thought that too tbf. He's been playing non stop for years, so wouldn't be surprised if he is burnt out and he doesn't look at quick as he used to be. Just hope he does rediscover his form, because as we all have seen, he can be absolutely lethal.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed004's Note - I'm hoping he's just burn out and needs a nice rest over preseason. I'm worried tho that he's losing his athleticism that made him a pain to deal with}

Alexis sanchez:

Started 12 league games, 2 goals and 3 assists.

Anthony Martial:

Started 18 league games (12 as sub) 9 goals and 5 assists.

Was sanchez worth all the hassle and commontion to sign him?

Has anthony martial been as bad as made out this season? Bearing in mind he was on course for double figures goals and assists before sanchez arrived.

If it was a straight choice between sanchez and martial, taking into account age and ability who would you keep?

Agree4 0Disagree

21 May 2018 15:04:22
Martial was doing ok, but was very inconsistent - I love watching him play, much better than Rashford for me. On paper Sanchez was a fantastic signing, like so many have been on paper.

Truth is a player is only as good as the manager let's them be more often that not. You see several of our ex-players and other Prem players pulling up trees in other teams/ leagues, not just our club but some players just don't fit certain styles or systems. Some join us and are never the same again afterwards.

Sanchez left Arsenal as their superstar - he is a fantastic player - almost every team in Europe would have signed him if they could.

Put it this way we have a lot of players playing well below their known potential - that is not a fluke, there is a pattern and I know how to change it, or at least try to change it!

Agree4 0Disagree

21 May 2018 15:07:29
Martial. Sanchez obviously the better player but he looks like he's on a completely different wavelength to all of our attackers and the midfield. Doesn't look suited to playing on the break at all, countless breaks fall apart when he slows it down. He'll no doubt improve but the last 5 months have been the worst he's played this decade. Shouldn't have signed him, think Woodward just fancied a "statement signing". That statement being he has no footballing intelligence.

Agree1 3Disagree

I seen Memphis Depay score a hat trick for Lyon last game.

Agree0 1Disagree

21 May 2018 21:00:55
Martial, Sanchez, Lukaku and Rashford should scare the hell out of defences and score goals galore. Supported by Pog as a 10 I think he’d do wonders there.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 May 2018 14:17:20
United reportedly about to make a bid for Toby Alderweireld in the region of £55m, can't make my mind up about him but he would be better than having to put up with Jones and Smalling again next season.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed004's Note - He is the best cb in the league and used to playing in a higher line which I hope we implement. Him and Bailly seem to be a perfect partnership in the making. Just sort out right and left back and we are nearly good to go}

21 May 2018 14:26:17
Yes would like to see him paired with Bailly, hoping the rumours of Sandro joining are true as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2018 14:42:23
Not sure either for that money-although he is certainly a talent. I hope Bailly gets off the naughty step, which is where he appears to be .

I would go for quality over quanity every time, I see no place for Jones/ Blind/ Rojo - Smalling at a push/ lindelof/ new cb/ bailly / tuanzebe is plenty.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 May 2018 14:56:14
I couldn't believe Spurs got him so cheap to be honest, same with Kante to Chelsea. Both of them now would cost 5 times what was paid just a few years ago. Still worth it.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 May 2018 15:01:50
55 million pounds for a centre back that will be 30 in August and has spent 2 thirds of the season out with injury. madness.

Agree2 1Disagree

21 May 2018 16:24:55
He will be terrific signing.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 May 2018 18:39:32
Kante is a magnificent player. Would improve every single team in the world. What a steal Chelsea got him for. He would easily cost 100m if sold. There is nobody like him in world football.
