So that's now 15 games since Bruno Fernandes signed after a 2-0 defeat at home to Burnley. Since then we have 11 wins, 4 draws, 0 defeats, 38 goals scored, 4 conceded, 11 clean sheets in that time as well.

I think we all hoped Bruno would do well but after a few flops in the last few years you never can tell, but the influence he has had on every player on this team is phenomenal. Let's hope he can keep it up when teams realise they can target him and we might not be as good, that's when other players have to step up, at the moment it seems like forwards can do that and score goals.

Finally, that's 3rd goal, I could watch it all day, when I think of Manchester United that is what I think about, back to front at pace and a quality lethal finish. Ole has us playing the football we want to play and getting the result we want.


1.) 30 Jun 2020 22:48:15
Amazing to think what the season could of been had we signed him in the summer!

2.) 30 Jun 2020 22:59:17
The 3rd goal was a throw back to that Ronaldo goal against Arsenal, superb to watch.

I like what I see of Greenwood, said that in the first game, balance and looks like his strength improved. Needs to play, May really have something

Good result, momentum builds but when Pogba and Bruno went off the level fell notably.

3.) 30 Jun 2020 23:12:50
Agree with all this. I thought matic did very well.

4.) 01 Jul 2020 03:02:45
His pass to Greenwood for the counterattack was pretty special.

5.) 01 Jul 2020 07:54:45
That 3rd goal was United at their best.
The header from Maguire, mad pass from Matic, Greenwood's cross and Bruno's finish. Simply Superb.

Finally we have started to break down teams.

What if we had Bruno from the start of the season.

6.) 01 Jul 2020 08:10:05
Great performance and result.
Dominated start to finish. Best I've seen us play for quite some time.
Matic and bruno the standouts in a really good team performance.

7.) 01 Jul 2020 08:23:10
careful people will think the manager is actually doing a decent job.

8.) 01 Jul 2020 09:08:19
I seriously didn't knew Greenwood was that quick, for out third goal i thought it was Rashford who was running on the wings.

9.) 01 Jul 2020 09:10:05
Bolger the manager has the team coming together, it takes time but it has been clear from the start what the plan is .

10.) 01 Jul 2020 10:18:05
I agree Jred.



30 Nov 2019 14:20:50
So City go 2-1 up with momentum and take off Jesus and go defensive, pep out?


1.) 30 Nov 2019 14:31:21
There's a career in politics for all the Pro Ole fans. Nonsense arguments and stats to show that the man is doing an ok job, yet none of you replied under Kens post showing Ole's absolutely pathetic win percentage.

Spin that into a positive?

2.) 30 Nov 2019 14:31:36
oop north in geordies back yard being saying all week that there isn't a better time to play citee than at the moment- 2-2 proves it.

3.) 30 Nov 2019 14:43:20
Mumbles, perhaps we’re all bored with this. Everyone’s positions are pretty well known so not sure I feel the need to reiterate mine any more.

4.) 30 Nov 2019 14:44:30
Absolutely, he should be gone by tomorrow. It's not like this pep nobody won the league by a record margin last season. What they need is a Cardiff legend to get them back to the top.

5.) 30 Nov 2019 15:27:45
That would be judging a manager on a game by game basis gds2. Better to judge over 30 odd games.

But you can put your rod away you got to bite🤣.

6.) 30 Nov 2019 15:37:54
Is 30 games enough to judge somebody on? Especially given all the set of circumstances that have to be taken into account.

7.) 30 Nov 2019 15:46:03
Mort didn't we sack mourinho on the basis of 17 PL games last season?

8.) 30 Nov 2019 16:31:58
He had lost the dressing room done to death. Amazing how many suddenly wanted Jose to stay. Everyone was calling for his head in the end.

Ole still has the backing of most of the squad. If that changes I'm sure he will have to go just like Jose and Poch did.

9.) 30 Nov 2019 16:34:39
Are results the only way to judge a manager?

{Ed047's Note - ask Pochettino and Emery

10.) 30 Nov 2019 16:59:41

EVERYONE was not calling for Mourinho’s head, I for one was not.


No let’s judge it on the goals they score as former players instead and that warm feeling you get when watching reruns.

11.) 30 Nov 2019 17:06:52
No they should be judged on the sales of pies at half time.

12.) 30 Nov 2019 17:07:22
Not the only but ultimately its what all managers are judged on in the end.

13.) 30 Nov 2019 17:11:01
Dodgy if that logic held true, lvg wouldn't have been sacked. He didn't lose the dressing room, yet he was sacked after the results did not go his way.

14.) 30 Nov 2019 17:23:13
DB i agree with you there mate. Jose had to go in fact he should have resigned when the window closed and begore a ball was kicked. But he wanted a pay off so was never going to resign.
I also agree that ole has not lost the whole dressing room. Matic pogba aside the rest still appear to be trying.
I mean fred periera jessie jones mata young rojo are never thing to go against him he played them most other managers wouldn't and they know that I'm sure.
He has time the club have made that clear but unless things improve he will run out of time.

15.) 30 Nov 2019 19:13:54
I know it's a cliché, but I think that result just shows there are no guaranteed easy games in this league anymore. Anyone on their day can get a result against anyone else in this league. The sooner we start to accept that, then the sooner we can make peace with the odd strange result.

16.) 30 Nov 2019 20:15:39
Mort id say that's fair with the caveat that there are some consistent signs of improvement.
Like i said the decision makers are remaining patient i think the next block of 4 league games could be defining. All 4 are winnable but also we could lose 3.

If we came through with 2 wins and 2 draws it could be the start of some momentum ole desperately needs but hasn't been able to get going all season.
On the flip side i can equally see a win a draw and 2 defeats. If that happens does that sort of return which will leave us probably around 14th 15th after half a season, test the decision makers patience even more.

I see this block of games as an opportunity for him to build momentum but i also thought that of our last 6 against traditionally much weaker teams. But we toiled against them for the most part.

It could go either way over the next 4 matches. Once again opportunity knocks to gain some momentum and confidence. Home game in Europe to try and top the group and an easy cup quarter final alongside those league fixtures. This is perhaps the block of matches that turns their season around.

17.) 30 Nov 2019 21:10:39
Dodgy, Red man is right he wasn't calling for José's head.

Of course he couldn't call for anything with his nose so far up José's backside he couldn't open his mouth 😂.

18.) 30 Nov 2019 23:00:12
a bit like yours up oles shappy.



12 Nov 2019 14:05:28
Never thought I would say this but Fred was actually very very impressive on Saturday, breaking up the play and a number of defence splitting through balls, as well as some nice little touches in small spaces to get himself out of trouble.

So we think a run of games has done him good as he has been improving gradually as the season has gone on or do you think this is a false dawn and he will go back to how he has been? A lot of talk how Ole hasn't improved many players over the last few weeks but I can name a few who are performing better now.

Interesting few weeks ahead to see if some of these players can continue to impress.


1.) 12 Nov 2019 14:33:23
Obviously meant Sunday, I've no idea what he got up to on Saturday but I was impressed by it.

2.) 12 Nov 2019 14:37:53
It's difficult to say with Fred. Certainly he hasn't been given a run of games to play himself into form up until recently. Which has coincided with a big improvement in his play.
Yet, he hasn't really shown anything even in glimpses in the EPL in the games he has played in last season.
His best games have tended to come in European games where the pace is slightly slower. Which suggests he struggles when the tempo is relentless and he doesn't have time. Yet, he has shown improvements in that regard recently.

Hopefully it is the start of him finding his feet and being a good player for us, but at the moment it's probably a little too soon to say. Fingers crossed though.

3.) 12 Nov 2019 14:52:23
a few of us always said he needed a run of games in the team, especially when the team was winning.

to be fair to him he hasn't moaned, has gone on with it and although not the best player you can tell he tries, he runs his balls off.

4.) 12 Nov 2019 16:22:20
I don’t think Fred will ever be a top quality midfielder, and he’s always at risk of a big mistake.

But credit where it’s due, he works hard and is happy doing the defensive grunt work. We are a better team with him in it, than with Pogba and deserves to keep his spot.

5.) 12 Nov 2019 16:46:35
Or probably he had the quality in him given that 2 of the all time greats saw something to go after him ( Pep and Jose) and he just needed a season to get going in the league. Not many foreigners hit the ground running immediately. Not everyone is Zlatan 😁.

Good that you said Ole has improved him. Just waiting for the day when Ole improves himself now and we can be back to the top 😄😄.

6.) 12 Nov 2019 18:37:34
Most impressive thing for me is his lack of whining and his apparent good attitude to hard work.

7.) 12 Nov 2019 19:30:42
I so with that shot had gone in, he deserved it. Right now the team looks lively, we have struggled when we have been lethargic. Stating the obvious I know but energy and pressing has made such a difference.

8.) 12 Nov 2019 22:12:51

I wonder where that went from last season as we had bags of energy when Ole first came in and it just disappeared weirdly even with the same players, very odd. The players have quality and if they use that energy we will have a chance in most games.


I didn’t say Ole has improved him just that when players don’t improve it’s his fault so when they do I think he has to take some credit.

9.) 13 Nov 2019 00:34:38
i would rather watch fred give his all than a half arsed pogba.

10.) 13 Nov 2019 06:16:46
Fred can pick some good passes and provides good energy in the midfield.
But his loose first touch can put him in trouble.

Credit to him for the improvement he has shown.

11.) 13 Nov 2019 16:54:42
There’s the conundrum GDS, the pressing seems to come and go, if we could do it consistently we will worry anyone as Liverpool found out.

Danny, I would have agreed but he keeps taking a step up and he continues then who knows? If we had a creative and talented 10 in front of Fred and McT then I think that would work well.



25 Sep 2019 22:54:41
Shahram / Torqs / Shan,

What do you all have to say about that? 6 goals banged past a tough Rochdale side. I've said all along we didn't need to buy anyone in the summer and I've been proved correct once again, this team will go far, the quadruple is still on and with maybe 1 extra player in January I think we have a great chance of going all the way this year.


1.) 25 Sep 2019 23:45:42
gds get used to it if we keep playing like we are that could be are new local derby.

2.) 25 Sep 2019 23:50:13
Nothing more satisfying than scoring all five penalties in a penalty shoot out. Well done.

Happy to see pogba back to his best too. Great to get back to winning ways.

3.) 26 Sep 2019 03:51:10
Yippeeee hip hip hurray! Dancing in the isles. Now that we have put the mighty Rochdale to the sword, i think i will visit the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower, Disneyland, Antarctica etc etc etc.

Some of us are so pathetic that we are now celebrating things that were considered routine. Scraping through the minnows and first thing they do is come here and gloat.

Get a life.

4.) 26 Sep 2019 04:32:37
GDS. I know u are being sarcastic but you pretty much sounded similar during the window as well.

Most of your comments seemed like it did not bother you at all about how lame our transfer startegy was.

5.) 26 Sep 2019 05:32:48
We are going to rock from now on. Pog is back, 31 tries on goal. Against Rochdale only few teams can do that.

Hopefuly we will keep this form and smash the gunners.

6.) 26 Sep 2019 06:48:11
So, they’re dancing in Skye and Islay?

7.) 26 Sep 2019 07:26:16
They are dancing whichever side you look around, Tony. Its christmas for the United fans all around the world after all we beat Rochdale handsomely. It was a total end to end stuff they feel looking at the scoreline of 5-3 (they don't know its a penalty shootout score) . They are so upbeat about beating the minnows of Arsenal now that they have trashed the challenge of mighty Rochdale.

So yeah, they are dancing everywhere.

8.) 26 Sep 2019 07:57:53
GDS you just did a Mort :)

9.) 26 Sep 2019 08:42:08

No, I didn’t, that was the whole point of this post to show how ridiculous some of the posts aimed at me were.


If you couldn’t see that my post was a joke there’s no hope for you, I know sarcasm is sometimes hard to get by text but come on. Pathetic? Get a life? Haha.

10.) 26 Sep 2019 09:58:16
Srestha, you have already brought this up so why again? If Gds wants to be positive about things then that's his right, maybe in the long run it will turn out to be the right transfer strategy, the problem with the fans including me is we have no patience but we have to give this time or we will just keep going round in circles and nothing will change.

I hope soon garner will be integrated into the team as I agree that matic is finished, a midfield o Scott, pogba and garner I think has good potential but ole needs to start being braver with his selections. A win against arsenal and hopefully we can kick on and we as fans need to get behind the lads and believe that will happen.

11.) 26 Sep 2019 11:42:48
GDS 😂😂😂😂.

12.) 26 Sep 2019 12:50:35
Thanks GDS, thanks for letting me know that i am hopeless. Cheers! May be next life i will be you. I wanted to say next life i will be Ole but no point being in the same position again next life.

Get a life of course, because there are more things than gloating (sarcasm) about a win over a nobody and logging on to this page to showcase your sense of humour first thing you get home from OT.

13.) 26 Sep 2019 14:27:01

I wasn't gloating for God sake, it was a joke, we beat Rochdale on penalties!

I am not bothered what people think or what opinion they have and certainly not one to say i told you so after 1 win or whatever, especially as I keep REPEATING, I think the squad is short and we will be extremely inconsistent this season.

Perhaps chill out a bit, stop with the woe is me attitude.

14.) 26 Sep 2019 18:36:45
Ajh for a man like myself who doesn't check his own posts and has more spelling mistakes or wrong words in them than most i find you're recent spelling call iuts as a bit daft really.
Just another man in a glass house throwing stones. 😂😊😊.

1.) 21 Sep 2019 16:40:37
I think you need the spurs page gds2. Posts like that don't belong on this page unless you are trying to make a silly point which makes you look a bit of an arse imo.

2.) 21 Sep 2019 17:51:03
Sheesh ken, it’s a banter page. Everyone seems so uptight today, Mort got it in the neck too.

3.) 21 Sep 2019 18:47:36
As long as we win tomorrow its a good result for us too.

But if it just to compare managers, let's sing Kumba ya.

4.) 21 Sep 2019 18:49:24
Wow Anthony you seem a bit uptight.

5.) 21 Sep 2019 22:22:03
I’m uptight? Read your reply to GDS, you seem positively clenched.

Interesting we have focussed on the players who have left, (none of which stood out massively to me) rather than the large number of players we have kept on. We have also offered to look after the players that are going and help find them new clubs with dvd packages etc, good from the club in these tough times.

Ramazani was the best of the ones that are going but he’s never set the world alight really so not to worried.

I don’t watch wolves that often but I thought Neves was one of the worst players on the pitch in the league game at OT, I was keeping an eye on him as people say he would be a good signing but all he did was turn and pass backwards all the time and kept getting caught out of position. Maybe it was just a bad day for him.

Red Man,

Fully agree, I had a mate message this morning saying we shouldn't be happy with anything except at least 5-0 against Bournemouth. Now we might and it would be good if we did but it has been a very long time since we scored 5 past anyone in the league so it is crazy to say we would only be happy with that. I would take 6 1-0 wins from penalties from here to be honest I don't really care about performances at this stage.

Shappy, if last night proved anything it is that you can't predict with any confidence that Chelsea and Leicester will only drop points in 'max 2 games', they could actually drop points in 'max 6 games' as that is how many they have to play. I am guessing this time last week you didn't have them down as beating City and losing to West Ham. This season has been unpredictable, especially for the teams chasing top 4 with some crazy results and losses in games you would expect them teams to win comfortably, so for me we just concentrate on ourselves, win every game if we can and that should be enough for 3rd place.

The fixtures for that midweek haven’t been announced yet, I’d assume we will play Thursday though so Monday, Thursday, Sunday. Still a lot of games to fit in but unlikely we will be asked to play 2 games in 3 days.

You’re getting mixed up Shappy, VAR is used for offsides on matters of fact, not clear and obvious errors, they are on other things. A player is either onside or offside, it doesn’t matter how bad the decision is, the VAR makes the final decision.

We will know more about wolves after their next 3 games, they have got a couple of 1-0 wins which have kept them up there with us, their next 3 look trickier and if they win them they will also be pushing for top 4. That last game where they play chelsea and they can’t both win might be helpful for us, but if we keep winning we will finish 3rd imo.

Nice one Leahy, interesting. I also agree this site is brilliant, I’ve been coming on here for years, as soon as we all got logins and they could keep track of who says what it stopped a lot of the keyboard warrior muppets and became a little family. The ed’s (some more than others but just my personal opinion) are really good too and add a lot to this site.

Hi Denis!
