Since his debut in September 2015, Anthony Martial has scored 49 goals in all competitions for Manchester United - more than any other player.

The fact that Ole has come into the club and seen the raw potential and talent of Martial, Rashford and Greenwood and promised them a lot of gametime is testament to the fact that he can see a good striking talent.
Lukaku would have slowed down the progress of others.
Ole gave Martial his shirt back, which should have never been taken in the first place.
Martial, Rashford and Greenwood are probably the hardest strikers to defend against, all good dribblers, ball pacy, and comfortable anywhere in front 3.
If it works out it's deadly.
Last year we kept playing Rashford, lingard and martial until all of them went injured.
I would really like Ole to rotate a little with Dan James and Greenwood and Angel Gomes.

I told you lads lol 😁 absolute fantastic performance, the real Manchester United are back.

Settle down, it was a very even match and they hit the post 3 times in the first half, if they had gone in it could have been a different outcome.

Wolves next Monday will be a tough game, but confidence breeds success and you could see that grow as the game went on.

Best moment of the game for me was James scoring, everyone lauds the potential of Greenwood, but for me James is going to be a special player for us.

One swallow doesn't make a summer.
However, more positives than negatives and it was great to see all three debutants getting off to a good and confident start.

12 Aug 2019 10:02:39

James has a lot of pace but will need to improve his end product to be special for us, this is obviously possible and would be great to see. His goal and celebration yesterday gives me goosebumps watching it back, the whole place went wild, great scenes.

12 Aug 2019 12:31:58
They didn't go in grimm, you don't get any points for hitting the post, did you not see us scoring 4 goals? And them scoring none?

11 Aug 2019 22:23:56
Sat in an english bar in spain watching United beat Chelsea 4.0 on the opening day of the season with a bunch of guys I've never met before. happy as a pig In. Did i mention my best mates a Chelsea fan.

Come on wolves, let's see what you've got.

I just wanted to say that the goal from Daniel James was truly a special and emotional moment. You could see all the lads run to him as they knew just how much it meant to him and his family after losing his father. We’re a family club and result aside, I’m glad that we were all able to share the moment with him as fans.

Great result today and now on to Wolves who I think will be a much tougher test.

Rashford, Lingard, McTominay, Pereira Greenwood. 5 Academy players played today (I’m ignoring Pogba) . That’s a pretty impressive stat.

Someone else mentioned somewhere the team spirit looked strong with a team huddle after each goal. Apparently after the third, McTominay was heard shouting ‘we go again’ to the other players, he’s maturing very quickly. The result was possibly flattering but the spirit and togetherness looked strong and the age of the team was very low. It’s a long road back but perhaps we have started.

Don't want to get over-emotional after one result, because God forbid a football supporter gets emotional over his team, but it felt just a little more like my United, today. Small steps.

11 Aug 2019 21:26:23
I love seeing the academy players come through Tony. Was brilliant to see. And yes I saw that from mctominay. He’s a fantastic example and a rarity in the modern game. He’s in some ways a throw back to early 2000s where footballers were less flashy. I’m a massive fan. Had my doubts but so happy to be proven wrong.

11 Aug 2019 21:28:16
Wonderful attacking play. Took our chances brilliantly. And we were great to watch.
Pogba lost the ball too many times, and we started sluggishly and too open. So hopefully we can correct these.
But a great result and the attacking play was superb.
All three debutants did extremely well.
We can't get carried away, but we will go to Wolves in confident mood, and hopefully, we can extract revenge on them.

11 Aug 2019 21:56:50
McTom is starting to look the real deal. Noticed Pogba seemed peripheral to the celebrations. This season should be spent finding a player to compliment McTom as he could have a big future if he keeps progressing.

11 Aug 2019 22:19:35
There's positives. A lot to build on. Couple of negatives but they can be worked on. I said couple days ago that mctom is a future captain.

12 Aug 2019 06:56:21
" We go again" I'm glad someone else has taken new ownership of that phrase Ajh. It used to fill me with nightmares 🙄.

12 Aug 2019 07:03:18
I understand one swallow doesn't make a summer but am I happy? Too damned right I am! Sure there are things to work on but so many positives. We go again!

12 Aug 2019 08:26:51
It's a step in the right direction, a fresh of breath air to be honest .
A few more performances like that what will people moan about.

11 Aug 2019 20:51:48
Over the world with that win, absolutely fantastic, But then i prefer not to get carried away.

After "THAT NIGHT IN PARIS" scene i would like to keep my enthusiasm under control.

Hoping for more of the same boys.

Wow, what a win!

I was so pleased to see us fully commit to a pressing first 11 by leaving out Mata, Matic and Young.

They'll play their part this season (hopefully mostly in the cups) and guide our youngsters in training but to have every player able to press was amazing to see.

We have some real possitive personalities emerging as well with McTominay and Maguire being particularly vocal on the pitch. Was good to see Lindelof giving advice to WB, after the mix up, as well.

I have no doubt we won't be winning 4-0 each week but with strong positive characters like this in our team hopefully they'll keep other's chins up when things don't go our way.

Great win, GGMU!

Well got to say i'm happy with that result and performance. Room for improvement deffinatly!
I think we will see a few different combinations in midfield this season as there is at least 1 place up for grabs.
For me the back 5 picks itself now. I don't think there is any question to who are strongest back 5 are and it has been some time since we could say that. Really happy Rashford and Martial got amongst the goals today. Those 2 having their best goal scoring seasons will be vital this year if we have ambitions of finishing 3rd/ 4th which realisticly is probably the best we can do this year and hopefully a domestic cup, maybe europa?
But i think the best thing about today is that there was a clear and obvious togetherness with the players in the celebrations it looks like they have put how they finished last season behind them.

11 Aug 2019 20:42:51
Great performance, hopefully we will strengthen the forward line too, with a top class striker brought in.

11 Aug 2019 21:08:09
Do you mean expensive striker?

12 Aug 2019 08:42:44
I think our front line is sorted with Martial, Rashford, Lingard, James and Pereira. Greenwood, Chong and Gomes with Mata for experience will play as back up and Cup games hopefully.

11 Aug 2019 20:02:16
Well I won't be a coward about it now. Congrats on the victory :-)

Guess it was deserved, though I don't think the difference between the 2 was nearly as big as the score suggests. We got a bit unlucky with the finishing on a couple chances, and on some other the players just didn't pick the right options.

After your penalty our inexperience showed and it took a while for us to regain composure and take control again. 2nd goal sealed it (lazy by Azpi), and 3rd made it worse than it had to be (again, thanks for switching off, Azpi) .

4th goal I thought was a bit of a shame. Zouma was down because of contact to the head. Maguire even signalled to stop play. Taylor even looked at it and just didn't do anything. Was a bit sad to see that happen.

Winning 4-0 is never undeserved, but I thought it was overly harsh for us. Good start to the season for you.
As I've said before, you have a good team with some very good players. But chance creation has to be a bit of a concern as you had to rely on idiot errors from us. Obviously we gladly obliged today lol.

Onwards and upwards for us. We've still got some big players getting back from injury in Rudiger, Kante and Callum, with James and Pulisic also getting starts soon probably. So things should improve rapidly. Hopefully.

It’s fine margins sometimes Jackson. I don’t think we should get over excited and I don’t think you should get too depressed, it was a very even game for an hour. However, I don’t see where your goals are going to come from which is going to hurt you mate.

11 Aug 2019 21:00:14
Jackson 4 nil does not reflect the game as a whole mate but pulisic had to start for me. Goals are going to bee the issue. Big fight on for Chelsea to secure top 4 imo.

11 Aug 2019 21:25:13
We rode our luck in the first half, Jackson, and it just clicked in the second. Flattering, but that's football. Kudos for coming on here as well, mate.

11 Aug 2019 21:28:31
I thought you guys played some nice stuff in the first half Jackson but maybe lacked that killer instinct. Defensively you just caved after the second goal. I don’t think you are quite as bad as that result suggests. But I think it will be a bit of a struggle.

11 Aug 2019 21:34:34
Goals will indeed be the issue for us. But then we've had Morata, Torres and Shevchenko up front, so nothing new for us I guess haha.

12 Aug 2019 05:46:37
Kante in the starting 11 will make a huge difference Jackson.
But the world class quality of Eden Hazard was clearly missing.

12 Aug 2019 08:26:31
Fair play to you coming on here Jackson.
If one or both of those two efforts that hit the woodwork go in it's a totally different game with Chelsea in charge.
Bloody glad they didn't!
I had the feeling with everything that has gone on and been talked about this summer that this result would be a surprise to us all.
I just didn't know if it would be a positive or a negative.
Delighted it was the former :)
I think ths season is going to be one hell of a ride!
