Well one thing we can't say about Ole is that he crumbles under pressure, when it's looking bad he once again gets the big result. 7 away wins on the bounce in the league.

Yep except for semi finals of course. Great away record. Hard to explain why we are so bad at home.


2.) 07 Nov 2020 15:09:48
Yup, when pressure is on, he gets result.
Bruno is Ole's saviour. What a player and much needed leadership from him.


3.) 07 Nov 2020 15:12:15
Bruno is amazing without him Ole wouldve gone long time ago.


4.) 07 Nov 2020 15:24:42
No pressure in semi finals then? 😂

We've West brom and Istanbul next so these fixtures some at a good time for him.


5.) 07 Nov 2020 17:27:18
Oh here we go Ken and Angel with the same post. Was there pressure on his job if he lost the semi final? No, you ignored the whole point of the post to make your own post as usual.

{Ed047's Note - clearly you can say he crumbles under pressure so the original post was actually bollocks! 🤦‍♂️

If Maguire and Lindelof had been terrible today and we let goals in I would expect more posts slagging them off so I think it's fair to say that they were 2 huge positives coming out of this game, from where they were 2 weeks ago they have shown good spirit and improvement and hopefully that continues.

Not withstanding the Undertaker trying to choke out Azpilecueta. What did you make of that? Smalling would have been absolutely smothered here if he did it but at 80m i think you are allowed that.


2.) 25 Oct 2020 05:52:03
Huge improvement in defence compared to the first 2 weeks.
AWB is back to his best.
De Gea was a spectator and literally had to do nothing.
Both teams didn't want to loose but we created the clear cut chances to score.


3.) 25 Oct 2020 07:15:28
TrueRedDevil

You are saying United played that way because they didn’t want to lose? That is the psyche they went into the game with at home! Do you think that is acceptable?


4.) 25 Oct 2020 08:01:18
Lindelof played well, Maguire was still dubious, could have cost the game with better refs and left acres of space several times because he was caught out of possession. He and Fred didn't have good games, James isn't even worth mentioning at thi point.


5.) 25 Oct 2020 09:32:33
Shan,

I think he got away with one and was very good for the other 93 minutes and 50 seconds, from where he was 2 weeks ago to keep a clean sheet is a great improvement.


6.) 25 Oct 2020 10:25:12
I am not arguing he wasnt better than 2 weeks ago but if VAR doesn't cheat, Maguire gives away a penalty and that clean sheet isn't there. Plus Chelsea were as scared as us to attack so our defenders didn't have much to do as such.


7.) 25 Oct 2020 14:33:21
Or De Gea saves it, a penalty doesn’t equal a goal. It didn’t cheat, we’ve had plenty for for us as well as against us, just one of them things.

I am sure there has been a few saying it but I don't really think it can be said enough, our striker is showing himself to be one of the most respectable, honest, hard working, principled men in the world.

I'm not really fussed what your political views are, children starving isn't a political issue and should never have been made into one but what Marcus Rashford is doing is absolutely phenomenal and showing some people in this country up for what they are.

There is a great article about him on the football 365 website today that I'd recommend everybody to read, (sorry if I can't promote other websites, but this is particularly important to this post) .

Some of the stuff he is doing even makes me emotional and I am proud he is a player for our football team, some things transcend football and this is one of them. Thank you Marcus for allowing people to see there is hope in the world.

Well said GDS.


2.) 23 Oct 2020 13:37:52
Well said GDS2, the lad is a true inspiration. Andy Robertson have him perhaps the highest praise he could get 😂

I liked the timing of his post as well, shortly after he'd scored another winner in Paris. Smart.


3.) 23 Oct 2020 13:38:02
Well said GDS he is relentless with it. It is obviously something he cares very deeply about and uses his platform to great effect. Just 22 years old as well, he's an inspiration and deserves every bit of credit he gets I just hope when the stadiums are full his name is sang loudly by all fans as what he has done and continues to do goes beyond football.


4.) 23 Oct 2020 15:02:51
Good post GDS. Much bigger than football what he is doing.


5.) 23 Oct 2020 18:01:41
Gds well said my man.

Our 4-2-3-1 formation has been worked out, it worked for a while last season but managers work out how to play against a certain system and you have to adapt.

I think we were all surprised and worried when we saw the team but a change in personnel actually allowed us to play a different way which wasn't as easy to defend against. Mata was moving into the spaces inside and the front 3 looked more fluid than they have, even though they are worse players. James did well running with the ball and moving between midfield and attack but he has no end product at all and his passing is far too sloppy.

No surprise to me that when we really changed the formation in the last 10 minutes and allowed pogba, vdb and Bruno to just play that we suddenly looked unplayable, they had no play for that, it's the first time we have played all 3 in the same team.

We have Greenwood, martial and cavani to add to that forward line as well, we aren't as bad as people have been making out and hopefully a few of us are looking forward a bit more to the next few weeks rather than expecting us to lose every game. A win next week would put us ahead of Chelsea interestingly. The other teams who we will likely be challenging for top 4 with are dropping points and after a poor start we really need to see if we can kick on.

A lot of the problems are still there but some of the big ones were nullified a little today, let's see what the next few weeks brings.

1.) 18 Oct 2020 07:01:13
It goes to show that Ole doesn't know what his best team or formation is. Yiur are correct that teams have worked Utd out when they play 4231.

The problem is, that when teams play pressing football and pin Utd back, that we make too many mistakes. Both Lindelof and Maguire lack pace and aren't that good technically either. I think it is how they are coached aswell.

Ultimately we are a Jekyll and Hyde team.


2.) 18 Oct 2020 07:44:56
Good see the confidence returning to the players, I admit I was worried about the fixtures coming up, but now not so much.


3.) 18 Oct 2020 08:09:48
The counter attack goal from Bruno was top class.

Next week is absolutely crucial for us.
PSG, Chelsea and Leipzig in 10 days. Therefore the squad rotation was understandable.


4.) 18 Oct 2020 09:02:56
That’s the first thing I thought when they were all on the pitch. Mata, Bruno, Pogba and VdB are our best footballers and it showed instantly. Was a joy to watch and would be great to watch them play together again.


5.) 18 Oct 2020 11:02:18
When the ballers were brought in, it changed the whole dynamic and flow of play. It wasn't any sort of genius formation change in the last 10 minutes.

I hope he is brave enough to trust the capable players in the team from the start. McT/ Matic holding, Van De Beek, Bruno, Mata and things will happen. I don't want to see Fred/ McT starting again, they offer nothing there.


6.) 18 Oct 2020 11:07:18
PSG. Oh my days! Their attack could tear our defence a new one!

Huge 3 points.

GDS2

1.) 26 Sep 2020 15:22:33
Massive.


2.) 26 Sep 2020 15:47:27
Enormous.


3.) 26 Sep 2020 15:50:31
Bigger considering the atrocious performance. A team boasting of Bruno, Rashford, Martial, Pogba amongst others totally outplayed by Brighton. Wow. Lucky 3 points there but i guess no one is complaining on that part.


4.) 26 Sep 2020 16:04:52
I’d honestly try DVB instead of pogba for a few games just to see what happens. He’s currently fitter and sharper and think he could link well with Bruno and the forwards. Pogba isn’t energetic at the best of times but he has had C.V. and hardly played so I’d give him a few more weeks training before starting him again (pogba fans will kill me) 🤷‍♂️🤣.

Eric,

He played there for the under 23s tonight who played a 3-4-3 formation. Williams played right wing back and Pellestri also played. A last minute penalty winner in a 2-1 win, impressive performance considering how young this team is.

Angel,

You say unfortunately our captain will walk straight back in but I thought he had a very good game against Newcastle, he won absolutely everything and looked so assured after he got his goal.

Herrera,

Terrible example, Giggs had a lot of injuries at 32-33.

Ken,

Don’t think so, 3 seasons ago he scored 49 goals in all competitions, just had a few injuries last season, PSG fans wanted him to stay from what I’ve read, works hard for the team and scored goals.

When people say he’s injury prone, do they mean he had a few injuries last season? He’s not been injury prone at all in his career and been rated highly wherever he’s played.

I checked the price for Fred to get sent off at half time and thought it wasn’t worth the bet as even if he came out for the 2nd half Ole would take him off after 15 minutes as he seems incapable of making a sub until 60 minutes. No value there on someone to get sent off in 15 minutes at even money imo.

I agree with that whole post Ken strangely enough. Genuinely nothing on disagree with.

Oh I do miss Paddy on the commentary though, just wish he reffed some of our games, we would have had 12 penalties a game.

Because you’re rude and abrupt to all of my posts and clearly have a problem with me despite me being nothing but polite, never mind, if you don’t see how you’re being then there’s no point, just thought you would be better than that.

GDS2

{Ed025's Note - come on guys you are better than this, please lets have some respect for other peoples opinions even if you dont agree with them, its ok to have a bit of banter but name calling and trashing other posters views is not on, its usually a pleasure to edit the united page as there are some great characters and humour but lately its all got a bit toxic, lets start afresh hey and be more tollerant towards each other...cheers..

Ken, if we win the next 2 games do you think the people who hate Ole being in charge of our club and think he is ‘ruining everything United stand for’ will back off? I don’t.
