City have withdrawn their offer. Chelsea intersted.

Cant follow the figures though although I doubt any journo knows. The Indy saying Arsenal wanted Martial PLUS cash? and now its 30 million PLUS Miki? neither of those deals look good to me.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 22:54:54
I can't see Chelsea splashing the cash when there is an unknown with the manager. Probably going public to satisfy fans that they tried.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 02:04:16
Replacement for Hazard is my guess. Hopefully just BS, but if they are in the mix it will be a problem for us I think - these foreigners seem to love London, I doubt they spend much time partying, learning the history and shops you can find anywhere - it's just convenience and the 'image'.

I genuinely don't see the draw in London for a professional footballer over other major cities in the UK.

Di Marzio reporting that we have reached an agreement with Sanchez and his agents.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 14 Jan 2018 13:50:28
Than surely we have. that guy is special at news.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 14:13:10
That guy is specially wrong everytime he opens his mouth.


3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:29:19
Yeah sure he is mikon. What planet you living on. Has always been incredibly accurate. Most have some decent sources.

4.) 15 Jan 2018 10:31:48
Incredibly accurate? that's a stretch, sure he is better than some but he is wrong about transfers all the time!



13 Jun 2017 18:48:47
This goes out to Ed002 if he is available. I read somewhere, I think it was the Chelsea page, that United could be in for Fabregas. could you possibly shed some light on it please? Given that we see a Magic discussion down the page, is it Matic or Fabregas that we are interested in, if either.

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United could potentially be push for Matic as the interest from elsewhere has gone. Fabregas is keen to stay.}

1.) 13 Jun 2017 21:25:38
Sorry Ed, can I clarify, the interest United had elsewhere has gone or interest in Matic from elsewhere has gone?

{Ed002's Note - The other club that was interested in Matic are no longer keen.}

2.) 13 Jun 2017 23:41:11
Cheers for the reply, Ed!

3.) 14 Jun 2017 05:26:33
Thanks Ed. If Fabregas is staying, why are Chelsea considering Verrati? They can't have two similar sorts playing in the same game.

{Ed002's Note - You appear to be on the wrong page.}

4.) 14 Jun 2017 05:38:51

Wasn't the other club that was interested in Matic? If so, have they found someone else they are going for or have they backed out due to a high asking price?

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry - this is the MU page.}

Last year Adidas teased with the Pogba-United ads, this year Huawei has started it with Greizmann. Did anyone see it yet? Jose calling Griezmann.

Underwhelming today. 2nd gear performance today mostly. its 77 min in and can't be sure if we are going to win today.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 19 Jan 2019 17:24:29
I'll take underwhelming against a Brighton side who have beaten us the previous 2 games.

7 from 7. Well done boys.

2.) 19 Jan 2019 18:33:55
I was never really worried, they didn’t really have any chances in the last 10 minutes to make you think they might win. We were really good at times, Rashford’s goal was fantastic and he is in the form of his life, no mention of it though Shan?

3.) 19 Jan 2019 18:35:02

4.) 19 Jan 2019 19:16:03
We played well in the first half and withiut ever really causing us much concern brighton were the better team in the 2nd half.
Our midfield players matic pogba and herrera are playing nearly every min of every game and have looked tired in the last 20 mins of our last 3 league games.
We need fred to start offering a bit more other than that there is only fellaini to look forward to when he gets fit again when the window closes. We really are paper thin in the squad in midfield playing 3 in there.
Ole will have to get creative in rotating our defenders and midfielders as he is woefully short on quality behind his 1st choice.
Dalot showed again today that he is on the right track and improving all the time.
Rotating our front 3 appears easier on paper with rom sanchez and mata as second choices to jessie martial and rash.
7 out of 7. Is more than most even hoped for. Probably 3 points off top 4. Lots to be positive about. We have a monster month ahead of us in feb and the key for me is keeping our midfield and lindelof fresh. Its time for the likes of fred to step up and start making a positive contribution.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 19:25:14
Their goal (completely against the run of play) threw us and made it a nervy end. We could have been 3/ 4 up at the break and had chances second half. Not sure what was underwhelming?
Lindelof had another good game, rashfords goal was stunning.

6.) 19 Jan 2019 19:37:09

It’s a shame Rashford is leaving in the summer because he isn’t good enough 🤣 what’s convenient Shan?

7.) 19 Jan 2019 20:22:48
Shan still thinks rashford is rubbish.

8.) 20 Jan 2019 03:47:16
Yes lads Rashford's goal was brilliant yesterday and there were a few Rooneysque passes from him but did you think he fizzled in and out of the game? Its my opinion and none of you will be changing that unless i see what i want to from him. Consistency in front of goal. But having said that he has been excellent these last few games.

I don't have words for you guys because you are being pigeons by closing your eyes. The performance yesterday was so slow and lethargic. It was a performance similar to dianosaur's, the difference being that under him these world beaters didn't play and gave up and might have ended up drawing.

The club has given in to the player power and is no longer unique and different than any other club in the world. The United Way is done. Wonder what happened to "My way or the highway. " what could have been if the club had backed Beckham, Stam, van Nistelrooy instead of the manager of the time.

9.) 20 Jan 2019 04:45:03
Hasn't he scored 4 in 4 in pl now with 6 goals and 3 assists in last 10 games overall, most will call that consistency.

10.) 20 Jan 2019 05:43:58
Yes CSM, most will. I am not the crowd. Obviously there must be something about him that every manager has put him in the team, he just needs to do it in the game regularly. But as i said, he has been brilliant these past few games and i really hope he continues in this vain of form for long. That will be good for the lad and the club. I will be more than happy to put my hand up and say i was wrong about Rashford. I reserve my judgement. I hope that is fine buddy.

11.) 20 Jan 2019 07:23:32
I don't really mind shan just found the stats interesting given you wanted consistency from him, it's an opinion and rashford isn't a star player yet so everyone is allowed their's.

12.) 20 Jan 2019 09:15:16
One of the commentary team summed it up for me yesterday by saying that we won't need to buy a star striker for the next decade he's ours and I love him the kids going to be a superstar.

13.) 20 Jan 2019 13:12:18
He’s just turned 21. You can’t expect him to be consistent week in weekout yet as he’s still learning. He’s played some many roles, and hasn’t led the line in as many games for us since his debut season. Have some faith in him.



14 Jan 2019 13:29:14
It was a brilliant RESULT yesterday. We beat Spurs at Wembley but please don't let the result shroud the performance. Yesterday was a typical Jose performance where one moment of magic won us the game. Any other goal keeper than David De Gea and we lose that game by a fair few. I am ecstatic by the result, yes, but the performance left a lot to improve on.

I am sorry and many of you may disagree to this but I still feel that this is a temporary dawn and the reason Ole is being called god is because he is a legend of Old Trafford. This was the same performance when we beat Arsenal last year at the Emirates and Jose was slaughtered. Stamford Bridge earlier this year and Jose was hanged. I am not here to support Jose, not at all, but why not call it fair. Yesterday, we were lucky to win it. It wasn't a very good performance, let alone a performance that gets you the hot seat at OT. My heartbeat was racing and reaching and crossing 100 by the time final whistle was blown and more than being happy, I was relieved that it was over.

So, my point is that let it cool down. I am sure if the results continue this way and the performances follow, the board will pay heed and may be even contact Molde to hire Ole permanently. But as of now, he is a temp and will remain that way till the end of the season.

Let the bashing begin :P.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 14 Jan 2019 14:14:56
I thought the Stamford bridge performance was very good and actually can't remember many negatives thrown towards Jose. When we beat big teams he got credit because it was due.

Yes of course we must remain calm and 'real' but OGS can only beat what's in front of him and 6 from 6 is an incredible start.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 14:25:04
Shan I understand your caution, we don't want to get too carried away. However this was a big game for both teams, for us a must win to keep top 4 in sight and spurs had to win if they were to keep their title aspirations alive. I think Ole himself said it post match that we found it difficult to adjust to their change in tactics. DdG was a massive difference, that said Lloris did pull off some good saves as well especially against Pogba. Utd could have and maybe should have; at least doubled the lead in the 1st half. So as it stands it is 6 out of 6. Be it false hope or not, I enjoy our games again!

3.) 14 Jan 2019 14:30:37
Nobody's giving him the job already and one big away win doesn't prove that he's a tactical genius, but you can't deny he sent the team out with a gameplan designed to give us the best chance of winning possible. Spurs had loads of shots on target but only once did Dave have to pull off the remarkable. He's allowed to though, it's his job after all, just like Pogba's allowed to play one of the best passes of his United career. If we had a better partner for Lindelof maybe we would have gave up less opportunities and if Sanchez was fit we would have had someone to seamlessly replace one of the front three and maintain the intensity of our forward press.

It was a very good performance and the areas to improve upon are clear, what's not to like?

4.) 14 Jan 2019 15:15:19

I don't think anybody thinks Ole should have the job yet, we are just enjoying what is happening at the moment and want it to continue. It is all like a bit of a dream, we were a terrible side struggling to hold on to 6th, nowhere near top 4 with a negative goal difference only a month ago, to see where we are now you can't be surprised that people are excited and enjoying it. I wanted a good performance yesterday, if we had lost then so be it, luckily we got the performance, a good tactical display and the result, what a great day.

It might not have been a 'good performance' but at 1-0 in the last 20 minutes we had more shots on target than we had away against Liverpool in the whole game. Spurs were brilliant 2nd half and our keeper is part of our team so he is allowed to make saves. I actually think most keepers would have saved the majority of the chances but they have to be made and De Gea is back to his best.

Jose certainly wasn't hanged for the Chelsea result, we played well and nearly beat them, very unlucky to concede last minute, don't re-write history to make a point, it just makes the rest of your post seem silly as well.

5.) 14 Jan 2019 15:21:04
I am sorry, I don't get the lucky comment.

Dave the Save is doing the job he is employed to do. and doing it well, it is not luck.

An the rest of the team did well too.

We should have scored more.

I find it infuriating when we win and fans call it luck, it isn't.
We were the better team on the day.

The aim is to win by scoring more goals and letting fewer in. We did this, ergo sum, we deserved to win.

Luck does not come into it.

6.) 14 Jan 2019 16:32:29
Gds bud, the only thing we are enjoying right now is the fact that jose isn't here. Yesterday was not a good performance where we scored one and hung on for dear life. The first 3 were good performances, the last 3 games have been iffy to say the least. Also, as was demonstrated by the game yesterday, shots on goal count to nought unless they go in.

7.) 14 Jan 2019 16:33:23

Not sure I agree we were the better team on the day, that isn't to say we didn't play well, we were the better team in the 1st half but we would be devastated to not get anything if we had played how they did in the 2nd half, they were brilliant, it was a very good game with 2 good teams in form.

8.) 14 Jan 2019 16:47:26
Jose would have gone to play for a draw. We would most likely have conceded and with his tactics would've been unable to get back into the game.

9.) 14 Jan 2019 18:42:55
We must have watched a different game Shan. Thought we could have scored more than 1 in first half and for last 30/ 35 We conceded quite a few shots but to say it wasn't a good performance at all? I'm not shouting from the rooftops but we went to Wembley against a very good spurs side, created a good few chances, played some very nice football and won? 6 out of 6?

10.) 14 Jan 2019 23:31:15
There's a narrative running throughout the media, that DDG was all that stopped us from getting a damn good thrashing on Sunday. From what I saw, we could have been 2 or 3 up at half-time. As expected, a team sitting third in the league, a very good team, who were chasing a one goal deficit, were always going to come at us in the second. But still, shots on target finished 11-8, so hardly the one-sided game you'd think from reading the papers today.

And agree, Hellblazer - a goalie is as integral a part of the team as anyone else. He did his job well, which is what we expect a goalie to do. Anyone would think we were playing with an extram man or something.

11.) 15 Jan 2019 01:59:46
Noucamp, they are jealous because on his day DDG is like we have an extra man impassable! 😊.



13 Jan 2019 18:27:21
Absolutely brilliant. that david de gea is some GK. The second half was a typical Jose performance and we were lucky to hold on in that second half but i am not complaining. Rashford CAN score. I am glad.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 13 Jan 2019 18:40:25
This is a very good spurs team. They were missing a few in midfield, but all their stars were there up front. What a fantastic team performance. DDG was immense second half, games like this may just convince him to stay, give him whatever he wants and sign him up Woody.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 19:05:50
Along side extending martial, ddg and Herrera's contract we need to get a cb in this month, Jones spent the entire game in kane's pocket.

3.) 13 Jan 2019 19:08:08
Brilliant DDG tho a lot saveable, rode out luck but tactics was good from Ole, another question answered, dangerous attacks and could’ve had a few ourselves m, thought we deserved the win tbh. 6 in a row, what about it now, beaten Poch. Said it all along, going to be hard to shift Ole on now.

4.) 13 Jan 2019 19:14:40
We can’t have won we can only beat the useless teams 🤣🤣 yes Rashford can score because he’s a hell of a lot better than you give him credit for, did you see the stats against Kane at the same age? We have a potential world class player at the club and I can’t wait to see him achieve it.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 19:24:05
A typical Mourinho second half vs Spurs would have resulted in a 3-0 loss, no?

6.) 13 Jan 2019 19:48:56
I, shine the 2 halves the other way round. They dominate first half, have 11shots on target, and then second half we dominate and take the win with them not having a shot on target. The fact is was the other way round has expletive calling us lucky which is harsh.

7.) 13 Jan 2019 20:06:04
? Very fot fungers.



02 Jan 2019 10:49:54
Hey there everyone. wishing everyone on this page a very happy and a prosperous new year (hoping this isn't their year though) .

Someone missed me the other day and called me out. I am the one who said Rashford would be lucky to be near Defoe and is just a glorified Welbeck. I stand by my opinion on him and will take much more than a couple of games against relegation fodder to prove he is more. We have seen this several times in the past from him, Liverpool last season (these 3 games were probably the next after that game) . So it took him a good year to replicate that performance, hardly world class. Januzaj springs to mind. Where is he by the way?

I agree he is talented but he needs to put that talent into use to be successful. I hope he does.

Happy new year!

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 02 Jan 2019 11:21:35
You sound like Mourinho Shan!

{Ed004's Note - In Rashfords defence, when has he ever gotten to play this many games in a row in his favoured position? The only extended period of time was in his breakout season. I would say comparing him to Welbeck is very harsh. Hes probably quicker, far better technically and strikes the ball far cleaner than Welbeck while being years younger than him. The only thing missing from Rashfords game is clinicalness and composure which will hopefully come from experience.}

2.) 02 Jan 2019 12:11:04
Rashford is rubbish. He's been involved in more goals than any other player this season but he's still rubbish.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 13:09:03
Called you out shan, sounds like we are going to have a dust up 😂

I couldn't remember who stated it. good on you, stand by it mate, hope you'll also be man enough to say you were wrong. Because he is showing a hell of a lot more than Danny welbeck ever did in a United shirt.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 13:32:48
It amazes me how two people can watch the same player and form completely polarised opinions.

Wellbeck and Januzaj? Football. Bloody hell.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 13:41:45
Absolutely Angelred. I will be more than happy to be proven wrong. I am hoping I am proved wrong by a Manchester United player. Always.

But for now, he isn't someone I would bet my life on to score a goal if my life depended on it.

Thanks DLIB, I will be glad if I am half as successful as he is.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 13:58:31
I called you out Shan. Is it fisticuffs or pistols at dawn?

Anyway congratulations for doubling down on the worst opinion of 2018, and already having the worst opinion of 2019, pretty sure it won’t be surpassed over the next 12 months.

7.) 02 Jan 2019 14:01:11
Some people are never happy and satisfied uh? We have been winning games by 2,3,4 goal difference, Rashford stretches down opponents defense with his speed and energy, he has been and integral part of the way Ole and co want to play, you want your striker to be the first one putting pressure on their keeper, defense. He has been very good and now with someone who used to be deadly in that aspect teaching him, He could improve massively. Negativity left the club already, time to start thinking positive, the good days are coming back, i can feel it.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 14:25:53
You are entitled to your opinion Shan, but I am with he majority on this and I hope the lad proves you wrong.
Why didn't you throw in Rossi and Macheda as well during the comparisons?

9.) 02 Jan 2019 16:09:14
Already did those comparisons last season, mbd. 😋😋

Reman, i am as happy as the next United fan with the current form but i am not getting carried away. You guys cherish Rashford, i don't (as of now) . Simple as that. I like a certain standard for a United striker, which Rashford isn't right now. He may well turn out to be and as i said, i am more than happy to be proven wrong. In my lifetime, i have seen Cole, Yorke, Solskjaer, RVN, Rooney, Tevez, Ronaldo, Berbatov, Chicharito, RvP and even Saha. All the above were natural strikers with an instinct/ eye for goal. All i am saying is that Rashford doesn't have that natural striker instinct and that isn't something you develop, it comes in naturally. So, my words were he isn't a good striker but could be a good player.

Danny, its going to be water pistols and balloons. Come on out.

10.) 02 Jan 2019 16:32:04
Like Manchester, Rashford is red.

Fair play for being stubborn on this and coming on to talk about it at literally the worst time. He stalled under Jose and I was worried about him, not anymore, the last few games he has been unplayable, something I never said about Welbeck.

11.) 02 Jan 2019 16:38:22
Ronaldo absolutely did not have a natural strikers instinct at Rashford's age. Not even close. He worked very hard on it but he wasn't the natural finisher like RVN or Yorke/ Cole.

12.) 02 Jan 2019 17:17:38
On his day Welbeck is unplayable. Mostly because he’s injured and can’t be played.

13.) 02 Jan 2019 22:12:14
And that’s another goa and another assist tonight. Ole has said Rashford is a much better way player than he was, he just needs more composure in front of goal.

14.) 02 Jan 2019 22:51:31
Brilliant Danny 😆😆.

15.) 03 Jan 2019 06:55:03
What else did i say Tony? The eye/ instinct for goal. Ole called it composure.



19 Mar 2018 12:58:29
Is it still allowed to post something positive on this page without being shot down or will the "glass is half full" people be looked down upon as if we were West Brom fighting against relegation?

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 19 Mar 2018 13:42:03
You want to talk about how great Rashford is don’t you Shan?

2.) 19 Mar 2018 13:57:44
Absolutely, he is boy wonder, the next Maradona or Pele. I care about the club rather than individual players. But this page as of now is such a turn off. You only see hatred, negative comments. It seems like the posters here are the pundits on TV. I am sure Savage is on here, so is Souness and a few others. So much negativity about the club we all love.

No wonder Eds call us TOXICS. We are what is wrong with this world right now. Cringing, crying, spewing lava everywhere at the first possible chance.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 14:43:29
Good post shan.

4.) 19 Mar 2018 14:52:10
Hatred? Nothing like some hyperbole to try and back up a point.

5.) 19 Mar 2018 14:56:29
Shan so you are now moaning about someone else moaning. Atleast most people criticizing or as you put Cringing, crying, spewing lava everywhere at the first possible chance are doing while sharing their reasons for rather than throwing a tantrum like you are.

6.) 19 Mar 2018 15:32:44
What did i ask of you CSM, remember? Please don't bother. I prefer not to get in an argument with people like yourself who have made up their mind (that is if you have one) . Stevie mate, the page isn't a happy place anymore. I ain't making a point here. Its just what i see here week in week out. No wonder half the regulars are gone from here. People coming on this page to complain about Jose's cringe. Do they even look in the mirror. If he was cringing, what in heaven's name are you doing.

Football is just a game, its not a matter of life and death so stop making it into one. Our players are poor, our manager is absolute rubbish and the board is crap. I am guilty of downgrading people myself (Rashford) but i don't feel like just going on and on and on about it. I am sure once our current manager goes, the next one will face the same fate from this bunch. We are spoilt.

This place used to be fun which it isn't anymore.

7.) 19 Mar 2018 16:22:26
I completely agree there isn’t a lot of fun any more but surely we can debate and discuss without having to be yah boo, which there has been a lot of lately. People are passionate and emotions run high so I guess it isn’t surprising that extremes come to the fore.

I’m not sure how many people want him sacked, but there clearly a level of frustration with his approach and most recent press conferences. Some love him, some hate him, most are probably somewhere in between. Compared to the LVG tenure it’s an oasis of calm on here at the minute.

8.) 19 Mar 2018 17:12:14
I know what you are trying to say Shan but honestly I have found the site very interesting and the debates have been an eye opener. I think everybody on the site has presented their arguments in a respectable way, albeit some more emotional than others. Everyone has a different opinion and the site is a far better place when as many different people as possible voice their views as authentically as possible. Yes it has not all been positive but I think that reflects accurately the way this current united team are performing. I like your posts shan and it would be a shame for you not to post here as often. it has been a bit doom and gloom of late but I feel this is the sort of time when I learn and develop my own view on the current situation.

I find this site can be a mad house at times but it is very cathartic to voice my frustrations when we play badly. I fear I would go crazy without this site! So I wouldn't take it as fans being toxic but that they have an opinion and this platforms allows them to voice it however they please. I hope I have not come across as condescending as that is not my intention.

9.) 19 Mar 2018 20:16:27
Good post park.
I know what i want to happen in the summer. If it happens great if it doesn't ill be supporting the club anyhow.
Jose is in a great position imo he knows what he wants. The board have a choice back him or sack him. Lots of players with a year or 2 left on their contracts. If jose doesn't want them all he has to do is not play them very much then the board has a decision to make. No point giving players new contracts to sit in the stand. Fellaini blind darmian ibra carrick shaw herrera have hardly got out of single figures in league appearances this season so do they sign them all up on multi million pound contracts to sit in the stands not even the bench.
I think jose is playing it right.
Fellaini doesn't want to stay nor ibra carrick retiring i'm sure blind darmian and shaw would like a move rather than waste their time sitting in the stands.
There are others like mata martial and pogba that might look to engineer a move away if they are unhappy and can find a club to take them and pay what the club wants for them.
Lots to look forward to imo.
The first group of players mentioned above won't get into the team for a new manager either imo unless its blinds father or moyes comes back.
Looking forward to what is joyfully 10 more games tbis session and then looking forward to wjat should be a very interesting summer ahead.

Good shout that Shappy. Both great options and won't cost much, but then again its United so even stones cost us diamonds. Wonder what happened with Bertrand. Remember he was linked to us and he is a good option for Shaw to compete with. Are there no fullbacks in our academy?

I am not complaining here guys. But you got to keep in mind the other aspects of the game. We are playing Darmian behind him and he was conpletely left exposed against Leicester because Mata didn't have the legs to help out. If Mata plays centrally, then he is brilliant but on the wings you need to help out your fullback which is where Mata lacks.

Yeah, agreed he was poor. So either ways he isn't in today so may be Martial or Rashford down the left. I also hope Mata doesn't start. My granny who is 92 now runs faster than him.

Well said Ken and i am surprised to say it but i agree with the beast.

Guys i don't hate Rashford. I would be very happy to see him succeed. But as Beast said, i am just not sure if that would be in Manchester.

I understand the sentiment of all of you with his age and him being local. But i am a modern day man and i live in the present. Its a cut throat world and this business is almost the spear. We want to compete with the best out there and yet we are willing to compromise with mediocre. Rashford MAY turn out to be great but is he good enough now? Can you compete with Real, PSG, Juve, Barca, Bayern, City, Chelsea with the quality of a Rashford? I just don't see it. Besides, how many of these top teams really have the patience to live in hope of developing players and still be at the top. You guys had the patience with moyes or lvg? No. More than half on here still don't have the patience to live with Jose but i guarantee you would kill to have jose as the manager if he were Mancunian.

I do not hate Rashford.

Better than most i believe. I still have my head in the right place. I think i need a bit of a time off from this place. See you guys. i will be back when i find the same definition of entertainment as you all.

As to why i don't like what i am seeing is more probably by what i see at the top of the table rather than where we are or what we are doing. Its just that effect to know that it just might be their year.

Ken, i am happy. don't get me wrong. I am happy with the result. I am a results oriented person. But i am failing to see what everyone is seeing with respect to performances. Aftee the first 3 games and first half vs spurs, rest have been the same for what our previous manager was sacked.

Or you'd think this was a Jose team and a Jose performance. Put your hand on your heart and say that tou would have praised it had it been Jose on the manager's seat. The answer is a resounding NO. He and the team would have been slated. that's all i am asking for. Honesty.

Tony, that's a nice stat. However, is there a further drill down of that stat as to how many of those 68% go in the back of the net? That would be interesting. Shots on target mean for nought unless they go in. Rashford gets too many straight in the goal keeper hands or mirubbishs them for my liking.
