With all the injuries we've had - 12 first team players at one stage. Now again Rashford, Martial and Matic have had to pull out of their international commitments. It's just a thought but I wonder is the adaptation to the new style (pressing and quicker transitions) under Ole taking it's toll on the players physically? That they are not used to playing this way and not usually trained to do it. I'm delighted we have changed to this style but it just looks like it's taking it's toll on the players. I would be over the moon if we could stumble into the Champions League next season anyway, shape or form. Get a few strong signings in key positions (CB, RB, CM, RW) to suit the style and a full preseason under our belts then have a proper go at it next year!

Yes Killerscones, after Jose's reign, we are starting to outrun our opponents.
It will take time to build the endurance in our players.
Next season, I feel, the players will be better equipped to adjust to this play style.

Well then the same problems from the last nearly 6 years are going to keep happen. History repeats itself if there isn't change. Please Ed do the right thing. Give the football side of things over to someone in the know and fade into the corporate background where you're a wizard. Horses for courses.

What happened to the talk of a Director of Football being appointed? Where we'll see Herrera getting a contract instead of Phil Jones.

It's fantastic that Ole and Phelan are at the wheel but we'll still need a better football man than Ed to take care of the football matters.

I like it. Who do you have in mind for them 4 positions?

I see your point however our best midfield and attack are by far best suited to our new style of play. Sanchez, Lukaku and Mata slow down and complicate our fast paced attack too much. We saw what happened when we swapped Herrera for Pereira in the Burnley game. Maybe bring in Dalot at wing back. Get a lead in the game then make early substitutions is the dream. Part of that dream also is that Jones doesn't get back in the team again because Bailey fulfills his potential like Lindelof. One can dream!

They'll have had 6 days rest since the Leicester game. We would be out of our mind to play a rotated team against a team fighting relegation. Look what happened when we tried it against Burnley. What's the priority. Top 4 or winning the Champions League? Let's get real. The top 4 is priority. Also, they're not swept off their feet with games at the moment so the same full team could play both games as they will have another 6 days rest after the PSG game. If the last week in the Premier League is anything to go by there is no gimme games in the Premier League at this moment in time.

I agree with you Deependra. I think Ndidi is very talented with room to get even better. He's a destroyer in there in the mould of a Kante. I know it's fantasy but Neves beside him spraying the passes and Pogba in front of them is my dream midfield trio for the next few years. Would obviously cost big money but I think signing them two midfielders would be astute business.

I would rather watch a flying Dalot down the right wing make some great runs and crosses along with the odd defensive mistake as he learns his trade. Instead of a boring Antonio Valencia holding back, playing the safe option everytime.

I said we'd be near challenging or at least playing modern attractive football. The last 5 years we've been doing neither. With either not good enough managers or managers from yesteryear with dated tactics. One game pretty much in the last 5 years we played a high pressing attacking football against spurs at home this year. The first half was the best we looked in years. Yes we died in the second half because of our fitness levels and not being used to that intensity. With the right training and coaching we can do it with most of these players. The articulated trucks, Matic, Fellaini, Lukaku must go for us to move with the times and play this type of football. Moyes, Van Gaal and an outdated depressing Mourinho. Doesn't exactly get the blood flowing. Yes it's the players on the pitch and they do deserve some blame but the majority must go to these managers along with questionable running of the club by Woodward.
