Lets just leave Pool and City aside, clubs like Arsenal, Tot, Chelsea are at our level at the moment.
We can definitely finish in top 4 by playing the kind of football we are playing currently.
Martial looks like a completely different player and James when played on the left side is more threatening than Rashford.
As the season progresses and we gel better, we will be a very difficult team to beat. Gomes should make the bench at least in place of Mata. Defense looks good and with every passing game chemistry between CB's will get better.
I just hope that Sanchez doesn't leave as we are in desperate need to depth in the squad.
One or Two new faces in January or Summer and we will be very close to a complete squad.

Lets just focus on the positives and move ahead, its a marathon not a 100mtr dash.

Good point Becks. Let’s play James on the left, let’s give Greenwood a chance, let’s let the defence get to know each other, let’s HAVE SOME FAITH! The only thing I would add is let’s get Garner into this squad.

Ajh again i agree let's play james on the left. Move rash to the right I've been calling for rash on the right for 18 months.
Play pogba 10.

Becks let's see what ole does at the moment its just more of the same with slightly nicer packaging.
He needs to be ruthless.

If we play Pogba at 10, there is nobody who can produce those killer passes from central areas. Hopefully Fred can step up.

It was great to see Maguire picking out diagonal passes consistently.

Not happy about Pogba in Midfield. He loses the ball too often.

We would all love him to become the player that he could be, but I just think OGS is fighting a losing battle, which is going to cost us goals.

He said last year that he does not like defending and I think opponents will just double up on him when he gets the ball and he won't be able to play his Hollywood pass and then becomes ineffective.

{Ed004's Note - An interesting stat no one picked up from after first two games was that Pogba had won possession the most in the league. I personally feel like we have him playing in his best position. He is certainly putting the hard work in first few games. Our biggest concern is that theres no creativity around him. Everything is played through him so he has no options but to take risks.}
