I've just watched the match back again and I honestly can't think of a player who compares to Wan Bissaka, past or present. I'm not saying he's the best ever RB but he's so unique in his tackling ability. What a great signing he has been.
Brilliant week for the club, let's hope they push on and have a good 2nd half of the season.

I thought he was outstanding. Players who defend as if their lives depended on it are a rare commodity. We have needed midfielders and defenders to do that for years.
The same as we need forwards to press add if their lives depend on it and make runs like their life depends on it.
Great coaches get that from their teams 95 games out of 100. Great players do it 95 times out of 100.
Any team that loses doing that are
Ok in my book.
Ole has a set of players that look like they could possibly be turning a corner. A big test for him now is how he adds depth and quality to the thin squad he has without losing the ethos he is trying to create.
We really need to gain some momentum it changes everything.

It's refreshing to see a full back that's fantastic at defending in the modern game.

Agree0 0Disagree

People complain about him going forward, but personally I think he enables us to attack much more because we don’t need the winger tracking back much to help him out. In saying that James does put a shift in defensively too.

I've watched the game twice now ( still undefeated when my daughter watches) . That first half was the best I've seen us play in years. Under Jose we played long ball every time against city to beat the press. Yesterday we played our way through it and our front 4 were rampant.

I think we are looking to build a system similar to what Liverpool have with their 3 up top. James was brilliant, second half he showed tremendous composure on the ball. Martial linked things beautifully. Lingard was industrious and was excellent imo. However, in Rashford we have a game winner. His record in the big games is superb, and every time he gets the ball now I'm almost expecting something from him, 10 league goals already this season. What a talent.

Wan bissaka is absolutely outstanding, defensively I can't remember us having a better full back for a long long time. I think 1v1 there isn't a better defender in the league. However for all the players I've mentioned, the one I thought was the best player on the pitch was Fred. I will hold my hands up and say I've given him some stick, and thought he was rubbish. This season beside McTominay he's been excellent. They compliment each other brilliantly. The work ethic, the desire and yesterday especially from Fred we saw some quality on the ball too. Very unlucky not to have a couple of assists.

Pogba due back soon, but I'm glad he wasn't there yesterday. That was a team performance, not one player played for themselves. The desire was there, the passion for the shirt and the fans was there. I hope we can put to bed the debate that Pogba is our best player, because to be quite honest he's got the ability, but ability alone doesn't win football matches. Those lads were united yesterday and it was bloody fantastic to see.

Finally just on Ole, I'm delighted for the man. So much criticism after Villa (myself included) but his record in these big games shows he's got something about him. He's clearly not tactically clueless, and most importantly, he's got those players at least united and playing for him. Let's back the man and give him a bit more time. We may never win anything with Ole, but just imagine the feeling if we do, because I was on cloud nine yesterday.

Caolán.

I really wish we didn't have to bolger2, but I will happily let him leave.
Matic, Pogba, Mata and Jones need to be shown out.
I think a Bruno Fernandes would be twice the player for us than Pogba.

Caolan. Great post. You are not alone in the fred critisism. But he has played really well the last 2 games in particular. Mctom being alongside him has helped too he just keeps improving.
I lost patience with ole 2 weeks ago. But most importantly as you say the players didn't and havnt they are all playing for him and have now got the opportunity to get on a little run and get some real momentum going.
Some reinforcements are needed In midfield and attack asap. We can't expect rash martial james mctom to play every game and perform to a high level.
The next challenge for ole is to maintain the results on the occasions that the form dips or an injury occurs.
The squad is threadbare in some areas. I think we are really wull stocked for full backs and centre halves but glaringly weak in mid field and attack.
So yes i would sell pogba. Potentially getting a top player or 2 in exchange that want to accept the challenge of bringing these exciting youngsters with them and buy into the ethos that would be great.
Getting the right snr players in to help these younger lads is not easy. But they do need guidance especially when it gets tough.

I'll be happy to be proven wrong. Rosspique but it will take more than a couple of matches to do that.
Im still unsure that he can deliver the silverware but ill celebrate whenever we win that's for sure.

There are a few of things I want to highlight about yesterdays game.

Firstly, how good we were in that first half. We could have gone in at half time 4-0 up and not have been flattered by the score line. The second half was tougher, but that is to be expected when playing the champions on their own patch when they are managed by one of the greatest tactical minds currently coaching. But we showed fight, grit, determination and character. All things considered one of if not the best performance under Ole.

Secondly, the form of Fred over the last 5-6 weeks has been hugely encouraging. He is starting to look like the player we spent 50m on. Busy off the ball and growing confidence on the ball. Surely first choice along with McTominay now.

Thirdly, Lingard in the last couple of games has had a return to form. He has been busy, disruptive but also showing signs of end product. Most key passes against Spurs and most shots on target against City. He will never be a world beater, but he can be an important squad player especially against the top sides.

Finally, The racial abuse and general disorder from the City fans was appalling and the situation needs to be addressed. It is a sad aspect of society that is creeping back into the beautiful game. Football needs to make the stand against it with the harshest possible punishments to stamp out that behaviour that threatens to damage all we love about the game.

Shappy - I think we've seen evidence this season that a front three of Martial, Rashford and James can be devastating. If you leave the fullbacks isolated and space for them to operate they are capable of tearing anyone apart.

We were brilliant for 10-15 minutes against Sheffield Utd, outstanding in the first half against Spurs and for 20-30 minutes yesterday we made City look like a pub team.

I know he divides opinion but Jesse Lingard has been excellent recently. Many won't agree but in my opinion he is absolutely fundamental to how Ole wants to play. He initiates the press and his movement off the ball causes massive problems for the opposition. He constantly makes intelligent runs to open up space for the likes of Rashford, Martial and James. His return to form and mini revival have been a key element in our last two performances.

As I said at the start of the season Ole gambled on the progression of Martial, Rashford and James and the form of Lingard and Pogba. I think he thought that by signing Maguire and AWB it would give those players a platform to play.

Unfortunately Ole has lost both Pogba and Martial for big chunks of the season and Lingard's form has been no where near good enough.

I think we've seen in fleeting periods that this team has potential. If you add Greenwood in the mix the potential is frightening. I thought he was brilliant against Spurs. His movement is fantastic and he comes alive in the box. He can strike the ball with either foot and if he continues to work hard, surrounds himself with the right people and stays humble the kid will be deadly.

Moving forward I'd like to see Martial drop a touch deeper with Greenwood operating in front with Rashford and James either side. Martial comes to life with the ball at his feet and he likes to play quick one two's. With Greenwood occupying the CB's and Martial collecting the ball in the pockets on the half turn with Rashford and James either side it could be mouth watering. It might be a touch to offensive against the better sides but at Old Trafford against lower placed teams it's something I think could work well.

I suppose the big question is how long can we wait to see if these players can deliver more consistently? I don't think anyone is getting carried away, with each good performance comes three bad ones but we have a young team with bags of potential and maybe they deserve our support and patience for a little while longer after all.

Agree6 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 15:31:54
If Lingard is that good, why are we crying out for somebody to replace him?

He's a creative forward that doesn't create or score goals. Perfect player to be part of the squad and play a handful of games in the season. He's 27 next week. He's not good enough.

Ask yourself this. If he was put on the market tomorrow, what teams in the premier league would be in for him?

Agree5 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:01:46
Mumbles, I don't think Lingard is probably efficient enough to start most matches. But then I didn't think Park Ji Sung was effective enough in most matches either. Yet, Park played in all the big games he was available for and often played a key role even scoring often in those big games.

I think against most sides from 8th down to 20th Lingard won't have a huge impact and that is a problem. Yet against both Spurs and City he has played a key role in us getting two wins in four days. His selfless off the ball running and intelligent pressing often makes a big difference against those top sides.

He should be rightly praised when he performs well, regardless of whether you or I would want him to be first choice most weeks.

Agree6 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:10:26
Squad player at best if you have him in the team 20 or 30 times a season starting. He won't deliver enough for a high echelon team. He can have a role like shiquari play 1 in 5. Not sure that would be great for his brand though.
He seems like a nice lad very committed to the club but not going to produce enough to win a league in a creative role because he doesn't create enough.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:11:35
Park was used to nullify certain opposition players though, not be the link between midfield and attack.

I don't think lingard is good enough to be a starter but he does put a shift in to be fair to him.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:25:07
Mumbles - Lingard's strengths are his work rate, movement and mobility. When he's playing well his energy, movement, pressing and running ability are vital components of this team. He was excellent during Ole's initial winning start but unfortunately his form suffered badly after a few niggling injuries.

Of course he perhaps lacks the quality and composure needed to be considered a really top top player and like a lot of Utd players he has struggled with consistency.

Lingard is actually more effective against the better teams where he is afforded a bit more space and he causes them all kind of problems with his movement and tenacity.

I think Ole was hoping Lingard would kick on this season and perform more consistently but unfortunately this hasn't happened just yet. When he's in form he's a really useful member of the squad and if he can continue to play well he'll be a really important player for us in the second half of the season.

He may have just forced his way back into the team and is one of those playing for his future at the Club. In my opinion when on form he's a much better option than Pereria or Mata. My hope is we can get everyone back fit and see if this team is capable of delivering on a more consistent basis.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:27:24
Sepp, I think that is the best use of Lingard as well.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 11:34:12
The last 2 games we have been great and the talent we possess in these young players is there for all to see.
Every great premier league team have had a strong spine to their team. Look at us the likes of van der Sar, Ferdinand, Keane, Rooney etc and a variety of other through the years. I believe few smart swaps for pogba and we can strengthen our spine to add the improvement needed.
With the flair on the wings and the likes of AWB in full back we are not far off!
We have beaten city and spurs and should have beaten Liverpool so we are heading in right direction!

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:06:03
I think it highlights how good this team can be. However, many are young and with that comes inconsistent performances. Also consider Tuanzebe, Williams, Garner and Greenwood didn't start or play a significant role yesterday. Four lads who look to have huge futures at the club in the long run.

I think with four key signings we could have a very good team in a couple of years time. DM, AM, RW and ST.

Agree6 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:24:34
Shappy, if we get a RW, what happens to James?

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:55:58
Striker, CM/ AM and another centre half as a priority. James is doing brilliantly for first season and rashford has developed to a new level this season. Mc T and Fred playing well too but another experienced introduction in there will bring them on even more!
Just need Leicester to out point the scouse now!

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:58:21
James will have to improve to play. Competition is incredibly healthy. Players need to know that if their form drops then there's someone chomping at the bit to take their spot.

Shappy is spot on with those positions. I'd probably add another CM in there as long as a DM but it would be me being greedy.

The pathway to the United first team should be difficult.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:25:13
CSF, James will continue to get many minutes. The question should be what do we do when James isn't fit or suspended? Who do we play there then?

I think we need a clever creative RW. We have James for pace and for when there is space in behind. But we struggle to create when teams sit deep and perform a low block. What we need is a player who can play from the right hand side, but who has the vision to open teams up with his passing to offer us a different type of player to James who opens teams up with his running.

We also need a similar clever player who can play in the No.10 role who can similarly create when teams sit deep.

While a striker who can play with his back to goal would also give us a huge edge when teams sit deep.

In Rashford, Martial, James and Lingard we have a front four who all play their best when there is space in behind a defence. As seen by our generally good results against top sides who don't park the bus.

However, when that space in behind is denied they struggle to move the ball around quickly enough and cleverly enough to open teams up.

That's why is we can add two players who can use passing and movement to open up deep sitting teams, and a striker who can play with his back to goal and create space behind him for a No.10 then we would have a squad capable of getting results against the smaller teams as well as the top sides.

Add a true defensive midfielder who can shield the defence and allow our full backs to push forward more in certain games. Then we would have a much more balanced squad that will allow tactical changes to suit certain games and certain situations.

The fact we can go from exceptional against teams like City, to shocking against teams like Villa is what is holding us back. If we can bring in the right sort of players that will allow us to put low blocking teams to the sword then we would probably have an extra 8-10 points this season and be comfortably in the top four.

A striker like Cavani or Mandzukic in January and a RW like David Neres or Steven Bergwijn would give us the ability to get those results against the lesser teams for the second half of the season.

Then add someone like Maddison/ Bruno Fernandes and Zakaria/ Kalvin Phillips in the summer and we will in a very good place next season.

Agree7 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:34:40
Yesterday was probably out strongest first 11. When you look to the bench, you realise ho weak we are when compared to other teams.
On the plus side we have a lot of young players with potential.

I think Everton will be tough to play against Sunday.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:51:05
Shappy, I think we will continue how we are this season with James and maybe Dalot as cover. The number 10 slot can be taken by Pogba, with Lingard and Mata as cover. I would personally like another DCM and let Matic go in January. The defence has enough cover on the left and right. If we go for a first team CB then I can see Lindelof leaving and we will be in the same place. Sell Matic and Jones/ Rojo and spend on that CDM and if and when Pogba leaves, get the AM and RW.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 14:06:16
CSF, who we can get in January will be limited. The players I mentioned as possible targets for January are ones I feel are more likely to be available while also having the quality and skills we need.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:12:54
But you were calling for rice all summer and up to a few weeks ago and you've gone off him now shappy.
3 or 4 good experienced players need to come in to get the best iut of these young players.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:31:06
Ken, Rice would be another decent option. I still really rate him. However, Personally I don't think his passing is creative enough to play in a two man midfield for a top side that will have more possession of the ball. That in itself isn't a huge problem, but spending 80m+ on a player who we won't necessarily make a huge impact most weeks doesn't sound like a great idea.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 17:43:49
I agree shaps he is a cb anyway.
In reality if we keep everyone we have a rw cm am (10) st.
An experienced striker to take pressure off martial and allow greenwood a bit of time to develop.
A rw to challenge james and rash for the wide spots
A 10 to challenge jessie
A cm to compliment and challenge fred and mctom. Again experienced would be great to allow garner and levitt another couple of seasons to develop.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:03:17
Hate to admit it but Kalvin would be a great signing for you, closest player to Carrick out there.
With a bit of luck we'll be promoted this year otherwise I can't see us holding onto him.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 19:37:54
Cheers 70. Lots of good things being said about him. I've watched him on tv and he looks very composed but with a bit of steel in there.
Best of luck with that promotion push.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 08:39:02
How good has Dan James been? When he came in i thought he would be a squad player at best turning out in the last few minutes, on the left wing. Probably playing for the reserves occasionally. And yet somehow he's come in slotted in seamlessly on the right side and has been one of our more consistent players all season. Goes to show that occasionally gems like him and Madison can be found in the lower leagues without having to pay extortionate fees.

Last night he kept putting in inviting balls in the six yard, the kind that CFs end up with tap ins.

Also credit to AWB last night he was immense, MOTM by a fair distance. Fred seems to have found his groove and McT is a bundle of energy, those two are developing a good understanding. Pity that Fred had to endure racist chants and projectiles from the home support.

Once AWB let's Sterling out his back pocket I am curious to see what he has to say about the incident seeing as he's previously asked for 9 point deductions for racist incidents.

Next few games are what other big teams call winnable but for us we never really can say for sure.

Also credit to Ole, he's come out of his most testing week yet smelling of roses.

Agree6 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 11:29:09
He has been great but he does need to stop falling over every time he is touched. He put us in trouble a couple of times yesterday when pushed off the ball. A few gym sessions might help.

Agree3 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:09:46
Tony, the important thing is to improve his core and not gain huge muscle mass. He needs to be stronger without gaining size as that will slow him down and make him less mobile.

I'm really impressed with how he is blossoming on the right hand side. Many players sulk when not played in their favoured position. He just gets on with it and works on being the best he can in whichever position he is played in.

Personally he is my favourite signing we made in the summer, even though I love AWB and feel he has more potential. James just has an infectious attitude and work rate. A player who seems to genuinely love playing for the club.

Agree6 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:46:38
Shaps, he’s been great and made that position his own, he just needs more physicality.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:28:43
Tony, it's a fine balance. He needs to be able to not be brushed off the ball so easily. Yet you need to build that up slowly so it doesn't impact his raw pace. It's his core he needs to build, extra muscle mass in his arms or legs will just slow him down.

Either way he has done a great job and has earned his place in the starting 11.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - extra muscle mass in his arms or legs will just slow him down? Have you ever seen a 100m sprinter? Muscle mass doesn't slow them down does it?}

08 Dec 2019 14:27:21
Ed001, Running for 10-12 seconds and running for 90 minutes are a world away. Have you ever seen a physically imposing marathon runner?

Sprinters have well defined leg muscles, but they need to be careful not to have excess muscle or that they build the muscle they do have too quickly. While arm muscles are also not about size.

Sprinters build up lean muscle as the bigger they are the more drag they create when sprinting which slows them down. It's also why sprinters tend to be shorter as the larger stride rate doesn't normally make up for the drag, while they tend to be less explosive due to having longer muscles.

In the past few years we have had players like Valencia and Lukaku who have suffered from a drop in top speed and acceleration due to building muscle mass. They also tired quicker due to carrying the additional weight which meant their endurance was effected and they struggled later on in games.

James doesn't need to get bigger, just more core strength which will make him harder to knock off the ball. His best asset is his pace and stamina, we shouldn't sacrifice any of that to make him physically stronger.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - what are you talking about? You should stop you are talking crap. Pace does not go from adding muscle mass, what the hell is marathon running to do with anything? How many pacey marathon runners do you know? Just stop before you make even more of an arse of yourself than you already have.

By the way, you are completely ignorant with your comments on Valencia. It was nothing to do with muscle mass that Valencia lost pace, it was injuries.

What the hell is tiring quicker got to do with anything? You ignorantly and falsely claimed muscle mass slowed down a player. Nothing to do with endurance or stamina, you were talking about pace. You were wrong. Just stop trying to twist the argument to totally unconnected things.

By the way, how many footballers do you know that run for 90 minutes? None of them do, the ball is not even in play for 60 minutes on average and they spend periods of the game walking or jogging.}

08 Dec 2019 15:20:58
I totally agree with ed here and adding muscles shouldn't slow u down and infact it should make u faster.

I think Shappy is confusing muscle with fat. 😂😂.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 16:24:19
Its ok you you wait for a week shappy will contradict himself and it will all be ok😂
I understand the thought process shappy. But you have it wrong.
There is muscle that can be put on as a footballer that can hinder movement flexability and durability but under the right professional regime that shouldn't happen or be allowed to happen.
The team at Carrington will know what suits his body and game best and strengthen those areas accordingly. Other players will be in their own individual programme designed specifically to their needs.
Rash has the near perfect physique for his game. He is developing very like ronaldo did at the same age.
He could do worse than have a word with his hero and commit himself to a simialar work ethic.

Wonderful performances from the players and the manager. I didn't think he could pull two results out of the bag, but credit where credits due. The Spurs game we played well, not outstanding but we done more than enough and deserved the 3 points.

The City game, the first half was incredible. We could and should have been out of sight. The only problem with that performance was Lingard. He simply isn't good enough to be playing top level football. A proper No.10 in his place and we might start creating more.
I thought we sat back a bit too much in the second half but we defended really well.

Ole was staring at two incredibly difficult games that could have cost him his job if results went South. The reaction from the players was great to see. Even though I don't think he's good enough for the job, those results have probably bought him a couple of months at least.

Lay down a marker over the next 10 games and show everyone of the doubters that we're wrong. There's nowhere to hide anymore. Performances like Spurs and City should be the benchmark. Hopefully the penny has dropped with Ole and the players.

Let's kick on and have a wonderful festive period!

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 07:13:29
I thought Lingard was pretty decent last night. Agree that we need a proper No.10 though.

Also we were playing against City, can't keep playing at the first half tempo for 90 mins so we had to retreat in the 2nd half. We defended really well and were only undone by a set piece.

Can't find fault in the tactics.

Agree7 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 07:30:47
Why must we find fault always. Lingard was excellent last night - as was the whole team.

I think when AWB and Shaw empty their pockets today, they’ll find Sterling and Silva in there.

Agree5 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 08:00:42
AWB, My God, Nobody in the past 2 seasons have nullified Sterling as he did. Amazing defender.
The whole back line with blocks, interceptions, tackles and clearances. Top top performance.

Really was a top performance and well done to Ole and the boys because I was not expecting to come out with 6 point from those two games. I actually thought Lingard was very good and his energy seems to work against the big sides. But yes we do need a bit more quality in that no 10 role. Let’s keep the momentum and the consistency and build a run.

Agree3 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 10:23:35
Yes 2 great games in a week for Jesse but some people have made their minds up so it doesn’t matter what he does.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:06:43
I just expect more from my number 10 than running. He offers very little on the ball. "Why must we focus on the negative" and then focuses on the one criticism in my post.

Anyways, really good week. Ole deserves a reprieve from the chopping block. The Everton game is now a huge one. We can't let our hard work over the last two games be for nothing. More of the same please.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 12:44:40
Fantastic performance in first half. And defended well without threatening in second half. I wish we can retain the ball better when we're in the lead to put less pressure on ourselves. Hopefully, that will come with more maturity.
On Lingard he had two good games GDS, but let's not forget that in the past 9 months, he's been shocking. So 2 good games is not sufficient, we need him to carry on performing 8 out of 10 in every match.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Dec 2019 13:35:50
gds he had a good half yesterday and 1.5 good games don't make up for being worse than a sunday league player for an entire year.

Fair play to Ole.

I criticised his in game management and tactics before but the last 2 games he has proved he can do it.

I have said from the start let's back him and see the plan through, I hope he has won over some of the ole out opinions on here.

Also he has a very good record vs the top 6, kind of reminds me of liverpool a few years back. would turn up against top teams but then lose to the lower teams.

To be fair Big V, the last two games have been superb. City barely laid a glove on us and we were deserved winners. Could and should have won by more.

We should have been out of sight in the first 30 minutes.
5-6 clear cut chances.
City were carved open with our devastating counter attack.

Ole is clearly getting the best out of our front 3.

TRD, front 4, Jesse seems to have rediscovered some form.

Yeah Tony, his pressing and energy was really good yesterday.
However, He needs to improve his goals/ assists tally to share the burden with other forwards.

His is yet to score or assist in the league this season and that really is not a good stat. Hopefully, he has gained confidence with 2 good performances this week and kicks on.
