Wan Bissaka was awesome today. But why have a sly pop at Young?

11 Aug 2019 19:54:54
Great to see the negativity from the fans hasn't infriltrated the squad yet. Also great to see old trafford rocking and behind ole and the boys.

Clear to see having two centre backs who can pass a football will help us. Keep lindelof and maguire fitt and our build up play will keep improving and the sloppiness we saw today will be ironed out.

Also how good was pogbas pass for the third goal and marauding run for the 4th goal? Teams are definitely going to be reluctant to push up against us with pogbas passing range and rashford and martials pace.

Its almost like the ‘fans’ on twitter during the window aren’t the ones that go to the games isn’t it 😂

Great atmosphere today, hairs standing on end when James scored, so happy for him.

Pogba manages to go from world class to utter useless within the space of a few minutes, can’t argue with 2 assists though.

Great start.

12 Aug 2019 05:47:42
Pogba sloppy at times and class at times.

11 Aug 2019 19:37:29
Just noticed the match post page, when did that start.

It was there all last year jred.

11 Aug 2019 19:59:16
Its been there for quite some time.

11 Aug 2019 20:09:49
Only just noticed it.

11 Aug 2019 21:00:59
Doh! 😁.

12 Aug 2019 12:07:48
Been there for around a year. 😂😂.

11 Aug 2019 18:43:48
Wow. Phenomenal victory and not what I was expecting. I thought we would win but to do it like that. Amazing.

First half we were very sloppy. There was no tempo or intensity to our game and we couldn’t keep hold of the ball. But having the strong defence helped us in a situation where we would have conceded last year.

Maguire and wan Bissaka were phenomenal. It cannot be underestimated what a solid defence can do for the confidence of a team. Both De Gea looks more solid and so does the rest of the team knowing that they have Maguire and lindelof behind. I am so excited to see how these two build a partnership because I think they compliment each other so well.

I thought we were poor in midfield and it will cause us problems as the season goes on. Pogba loses the ball far too often in dangerous areas and looks half arsed. Then he goes and does two sublime assists. He’s so talented but yet so infuriating! We missed a trick not investing in a midfielder but we must get on with it.

Buzzing for martial and rashford getting on the score sheet. It will do wonders for their confidence. I thought martial look far more lively and rashford too. I hope they continue to develop and improve because we need them both hitting 15/ 20+ this season.

Oh Danny james. That reaction to his goal was so pure. It’s amazing to see how much it means to play and score for this club. That’s how I want all our players and signings to feel. Playing for united is a privilege not a burden.

One quick negative. Shaw is simply not good enough. Looks overweight and he’s the weak link in defence. I’d look at Dalot for that position.

Early days still. Not perfect but fantastic start. Long may it continue.

{Ed025's Note - good summary that park mate..

11 Aug 2019 18:57:10
Good summary park.

11 Aug 2019 19:04:29
Perfect Summary Park.

11 Aug 2019 19:06:35
Good summary park. It was a promising performance though and hopefully we get better as the season goes on.

11 Aug 2019 19:08:30
Not sure pogba did look half arsed today, not everything he tried came of but he put a shift in .
Maguire looked class .
Bissaka looks a very good player, Chelsea got in behind him a couple of times but he has a good game today .
Shaw is a better player than dalot and will start the next game .
Energy, workrate and tempo excellent today.

11 Aug 2019 19:13:54
Thought we grew into the game . Mcguire and Wan Bissaka excellent. Over the moon for Daniel James. Stretford end was rocking today. Chelsea support was woeful.

11 Aug 2019 19:22:22
Shaws position al awareness is very poor.

11 Aug 2019 19:30:55
Agree on Pogba jred. To see the rainbow you got to put up with the rain sometimes. I think we have to accept he will lose the ball someone's in bad areas but he killed them off with 2 assists. I thought he worked hard off the ball today.

Shaw did nothing to wrong today imo. He was left isolated 2v1 a couple if times made him look worse than he was. definitely keeps his place and will do for foreseeable future. They have to build on that back 4.

Jessie better than pierira in the more central role. Imo

James will do that all season in games you can't defend against that pace. If he learns quickly we have a beaut.

Maguire and lidelof super. Great to hear ole talking about his leadership qualities. Right man in the right place at the right time. He has an opportunity to lead this club out of the doldrums over the next couple of seasons.

Big game next monday. Momentum is everything at this stage of the season. A different challenge in a very tough atmosphere. Really looking forward to it.

11 Aug 2019 19:31:15
Shaw had zero cover in the first half. I think you are being harsh on him. He looked committed and put in a great shift.

11 Aug 2019 19:39:38
I think the thing about pogba is you have to take the good with the bad unfortunately. No doubting his ability and he can change a game in a second. But he can be so frustrating. He’s still our most creative and talented midfielder though. Great performance though.

11 Aug 2019 19:43:07
Maguire will get the plaudits, deservedly so on his debut, but I thought Lindelof was immense today.

11 Aug 2019 19:45:14
We’ve just beaten Chelsea 4 nil and people are finding fault. After a sloppy start from most of the team everyone put a shift in. And as for Shaw, he was our player of the year last year.

11 Aug 2019 19:48:36
Pogba lost the ball yes, but Lingard and Rashford did too. Why is he always singled out?

11 Aug 2019 19:54:42
Yer definitely lindelof was also very good.

11 Aug 2019 19:58:37
Very good summary Park.

Was indeed a very and surprise win.

11 Aug 2019 20:52:48
Tony it’s not about finding faults. It’s about giving a fair assessment of the positives and negatives. Going towards one side of the spectrum distorts the truth. It was a fantastic result and some brilliant performances. But it is only one game and we must keep our feet on the ground. Hence why I picked out shaw who I personally don’t feel is quite up to it. Just my humble opinion of course.

11 Aug 2019 21:03:38
Agree park.

11 Aug 2019 21:44:40
After the doom and gloom on here what an enjoyable game major signs of the direction ole is trying to take the club . I like the direction it's a breath of fresh .  
Not a perfect performance but good tempo, workrate excellent and after everything that has been written what a performance from maguire, not to mention pogba and both martial and rash on the score sheet.  

Brave decision for rash (or whoever) not to always track back but if the ball breaks down the counter will be on . Leaves the left back open .
I also don't think we where poor in midfield, game was very open today bit like the norwich v scouse . In both games defense starting right from the GK line really opens the game up and creates a lot of space .

Could see a lot of this this season, be interesting to see how teams adapt but it makes for a very entertaining game . A days of a pack cm area coming to an end and end to end football each week .

11 Aug 2019 18:36:39
Great result, but early on we could have conceded 2. Pogba spent most of the game on his backside, slipping every tackle, but must say Harry, AWB and Lindelof were very good. midfield is clearly a weakness. We were very open today and the better teams will punish us, but we will improve. Good team spirit.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Aug 2019 18:51:46
Wow, you’ve really pulled out all the positives in a 4-0 win there mate. No pleasing some people.

11 Aug 2019 19:25:42
Not sure how you can say Shaw is clearly not good enough, he was our player of the year last season. He didn't have a very good game like some of the others but he wasn't poor either. He wasnt helped defensively by rashford most of the time either so he was too against one quite often.

11 Aug 2019 18:31:22
We've got some real pace up front. Inject that front 4 into my veins! What a performance in the second half. Counter attacking at its best. Maguire Lindelof look solid and Wan Bissaka shut out that right side completely. What a signing he's going to be.

Only negative for me was Pereira was a bit of a passenger. I'd rather play Jesse in midfield and play Greenwood or James on the right but I think Ole wanted United to keep them for later to exploit some tired legs with their pace.

The summer is done now. Nothing we can do about it. Let's get behind the boys and hope for more of this.

Ed001. you mentioned, as an answer to a question on the new and fantastic ASK ED podcast, that you would like the site to be more interactive.
Have you thought about doing a live stream commentary on the broadcast games? . Just a thought as I get sick of most of the usual commentators.

{Ed001's Note - you can't do that. You have to pay for a license to do that mate. Otherwise yes we could have done something like that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2019 16:16:26
My bad, sorry Tris, Should have realised when companies spend billions on rights they weld all the back doors shut.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, it is a good idea just unfortunately not so easy to do.}

11 Aug 2019 14:00:25
Absolutely buzzing for today. Personally I'm happy with the transfers done over the summer and have no doubt they will improve the results and the players around them Definitely think we can make top 4 and have a cup run. I'm another one of these long time readers who doesn't post but hopefully can get more involved throughout the season. Big thanks to eds and the posters for making this site what it is


{Ed0333's Note - thanks and have fun on the site over the season bodger.

Welcome bodgerico. Hopefully we get off to a good start, it’s a much nicer place around here when we are winning.
