Well, the Telles issue has been answered, he has tested positive for C.V.

Heard from a solid source that before Ole brought Rashford on he told him that Naglesmann was a Tory.

At the start of the season it was pretty obvious that due to c. v, only 1 friendly next to no preseason we where under cooked.
Our first few games almost looked like preseason friendlies and we lost 2 games in the league, our first 2 since February.
But since the International break we have continued to Improve.
Defence has took a lot of stick and as a team at the start of the season we where all over the place but against Newcastle, psg, Chelsea and Rb we have conceded 2 goals. Both own goals .
Defence was far better last season than people gave them credit for to be honest.
Work on the training pitch there.
Ole rotated the squad tonight and that's a proper performance from front to back .
We have great options up top, greenwood had a quiet game still finding his feet but that really is a special finish .
Martial looks sharp so does cavani what can you say about rashford .
Before his injury rash for me was outstanding its took him a while to get back but he looks on his way now.
Young lad special talent can you imagine if mbappe had done that tonight .
Our midfield options look great so many different options.
We continue to improve, continue to move in the right direction . Maybe things aren't as bad as some would make out?

Thats a good post jred.
Our 2 best performances have been in Europe.
Both with different systems and personelle. We out fought and out thought both teams and impact from bench in both games was great.
The common theme in both performances was playing 2 up top.
We have not seen that in the league in any of the 5 matches.
We have 4 strikers and no natural wingers in the squad bar james who usually plays on his weaker side.
2 up makes sense with either a diamond or 3 at the back.
Thoroughly agree on Rashford he is just a super guy. His attitude will continue to be and has always been top notch. Its what stylus him apart from many others. Giving that pen to martial was a unique gesture and made getting his own hat trick even more special.
Ole much like last week got every decision right during the game.
We now need to take that form and in game managment into the league
We need to be more aggressive and positive imo.
To me a positive aggressive attacking mindset with a cohesive team all on the 1 page is what Manchester United is all about. A Manchester united team to me should always set out to win the battle 1st in terms of effort commitment and togetherness before they earn the right to win the game. I have felt that ole has abandoned many of the principles and expectations i have for any united manager in that regard.
Tonight all of that was there and i was a proud supporter tonight. Not only becuase of the 5 goals but because that was a team performance all on same page from all who played right through to the manager.
The league season has started poorly perhaps in part down to fitness and perhaps due to the feeling of what could have been from last season and the hangover from that the end of last season was a damp squib.
3 very good additions to the squad plus axel opens up options.
The squad is there imo. The positive mindset and winning demands and intent must come from the manager and flow through his team.
There is no reason why we can't play as structured and as positively and aggressively as we did tonight every week and in every game. We might not score 5 or even win but that's ok when as a supporter you can walk away knowing we gave it everything.
My wish for the rest of the season is more of the same and to play 2 up top.

Its clear to see that the 4 2 3 1/ 4 3 3 is not the formation we should be playing

The 3 5 2 or 5 3 2 and the 4 1 2 1 2 diamomnd we played tonight is much better for the players we have.

We don't have natural wingers i'm hoping we change to either 2 formations above

Another good performace and win.

But which united will we get weekend.

We need to belive in ourselfs and get a run going now.

What a great result, I thought we would win, but not that scoreline.

It was very tight and cagey for a long time, RBL controlled most of the game but never really had an edge. We didn't make any errors at the back and they never really got behind us at all. Good substitutions from Ole, the game changed with Bruno's ball to Rashford and when they went 2 nil down, they just fell apart. Well done to Rashford for taking his chances, they looked shell shocked. If I was Nagelsmann I would worry about how we just ran through the middle after it went to 2nil. Their possession came to nothing and we did a Leicester on them, broke with pace and they looked lost. I am not sure what to make of Upemicano, looked good stepping forward, bit like Rio in that respect but the falling apart is something the needs greater study.

Loved the result.

Back to back tactical masterclass from Ole in Champions League.

{Ed025's Note - it was impressive TRD, very happy for you mate..

28 Oct 2020 22:18:53
The squad now is big enough to compete as Ed025 has said, these kind of performances need to be shifted in Epl.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - we all know the talent is there andy, its all about keeping those standards up now mate..

28 Oct 2020 22:23:06
Brilliant performance, controlled first half but looked lively and then just demolished them once Rash came on, brilliant stuff, 2 wins for the Buyuks and onto the last 16.
Quite liked the shape, pogba played well, DvdB quiet but developing relationships take time, Greenwood the best finisher at the club isn't he, just top drawer all round, maybe we have our mojo back, let's hope we can maintain consistency, that is key.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - that is the key WRD, but if greenwood is a better finisher than marcus he must be one hell of a player mate..

28 Oct 2020 22:30:10
I was honestly confident about today too, but as you said not that confident! Ole got it absolutely spot on. Everything.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Oct 2020 23:06:02
I was confident too but i was wrong. I only believed we win 4-0 😂.

Fun stat: apparently Rashford is only the second substitute to score a hat-trick for United since, you guessed it, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Can't wait to argue about him in twenty years about whether he should be manager or not.

Depends if he goes and gets Cardiff relegated first.

The red machine is starting to roll again, great energy and quick passing tonight. Again very solid and they look happy on the pitch, even Pogba was working.
Our bench looks very strong now too.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - it was good all round redcon, need to bring that level of energy and commitment to the premiership now and the world is your lobster as del boy would say.. :)

28 Oct 2020 22:04:16
Ole out.

Agree1 0Disagree

Very enjoyable match and very dangerous options off the mech well used by OGS.

Quick question - is Telles injured?

Agree3 0Disagree

28 Oct 2020 22:08:43
What has made the difference, is it purely fitness or confidence maybe, the change since Spurs is remarkable.
I thought we might struggle through this period but I am glad to be wrong and we seem to be getting some momentum going.

Yes Eric he must be as the rest of the fit squad members are named on the bench.

Every time Oles job seems to be on the line he becomes prime fergie 😂 on a serious note, probably the best we’ve played in a long time from back to front. He’s been criticised when we’ve been bad so it’s only right for ole to get some praise. We have the squad now I believe to fully compete. It’s not perfect but definitely good enough to challenge this year.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Oct 2020 22:57:12
Telles not playing because he's tested positive
Hopefully it's been contained.

Good subs. Great result. So pleased for rash. Concentrate and be professional and we will win the group. 👍👍👍.

Didn't someone say on here a few years back Rashford would never make it at United.

Just need to take this mood and form into the league Ken. I don't think we should fear anyone.

Agree ajh. Its a very good squad now with good depth. This is a squad that can compete to win trophies. In terms of depth its a better squad than anybody else.
Hopefully southern softies turn up on Sunday and we start to bring confidence gained into league games and stop being so submissive.
1st home win this season too and martial got a goal. All in all a great night. I thoroughly enjoyed that 2nd half.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - very impressive ken..
