Don't think pogba in sqaud today.


1.) 25 Nov 2017 13:14:02
Would be disappointing. We are a far better side with Pogba in it.

2.) 25 Nov 2017 13:42:07
He is in the squad.

3.) 25 Nov 2017 14:07:06
Glad you are right, just heard he wasn't at the hotel with the rest of the sqaud.

4.) 25 Nov 2017 14:50:37
I know he’s not not been amazing at left back, but surely Jose can coach Rojo to be our main left back? He’s better than Blind and Young, has decent pace and distribution and plays there for Argentina!

5.) 25 Nov 2017 18:51:56
Rojo is a better CB than LB.

6.) 25 Nov 2017 22:18:53
Young has been great at left back and nothing I’ve ever seen in Rojo would make me think he could do a better job there at the moment. We need a new left back and if not I think young is the best one, as does Jose.

Looking at how little we create in most games I look at the number 10 and think yeh we need someone there maybe Gomes or Maddison but I also think left wing is an issue I think we need a proper left winger
Maybe give Chong a chance but I would like a natural creative winger not sure who just make a choice of Rashford or martail for centre forward also now shaw is out I would give the under 23s captain Williams ago very promising and don't think he would be overawed.


1.) 27 Aug 2019 09:00:59
Gomes will more than likely get a chance in the league cup.
He looked good in pre season aswell.
I think Lingard flatters to deceive.

2.) 27 Aug 2019 10:03:39
Playing 4231 is a formation that lives and dies by the number 10. It's the jewel in the crown. Fans clamering for an 18 year old Gomes to get a chance there just shows how poor Jesse Lingard is.

All of Oles old teammates talk of how he has a nasty streak. It's easy getting rid of Lukaku and Sanchez. Let's see if he'll drop his mate Lingard in the next few games. Play Gomes or play Pogba further forward. Not signing a number 10 (which we were clearly in the market for) may be the sliding doors moment of the season.



05 Aug 2018 21:37:06
Well that was poo, I know we have a lot of players missing but we sit too deep and invite other teams on but don't then break on them quickly we just give the ball away constantly, also I believe perrarai has played ok but I think he would be better playing a bit further forward and have Herrera behind him cutting the oppositions attacks out, and I don't get why darmian is starting before T f m darmian wants out so why play him, I normally wait to a few weeks into the season to see how things are panning out but got to say I'm worried.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 21:49:30
That was rubbishe. Worth putting some money on a Leicester win on Friday?

Gonna be a very long season.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 22:09:47
Putting some money on a team we are playing.

Lyon red, hang your head in shame pal. It's united we support here and we could drop down to league 2 and if never EVER do that.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 22:51:08
Yes angel, never ever bet against utd!

4.) 05 Aug 2018 22:56:34
Easy Tiger!



03 Feb 2018 17:29:45
Thought we played quite well today and deserved to win by more, I thought Sanchez had a very good game but thought the ref was awful Sanchez was kicked all over the park, he should of given us a couple more pens and sent at least one off.


1.) 03 Feb 2018 19:51:37
Sanchez played well. But there's still a but.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 00:28:27
PH we are not Citeh so cannot complain that any of our players have been kicked around. We do not have a Messiah as a manager too.



15 Sep 2017 21:13:51
So guys what would every one do on Sunday midfield wise, options are fellani for pogba straight swap, but does that leave us too slow in midfield so do we play herrara as well as fellani and matic but we would have to leave out mata or miki or my final option play herrara with matic and leave fellani on the bench?


1.) 15 Sep 2017 21:58:01
Matic and Hererra, Miki 10, Rashford and Mata with Lukaku.

2.) 15 Sep 2017 21:58:24
Herrera and Matic will probably be the two mourinho goes with, but i think everton may go ultra defensive as they must be low on confidence after recent results. So no need for a midfield three in this game in my opinion.

3.) 15 Sep 2017 22:27:01
Personally I would go 4231 and go with Matic and Herrera in midfield for two reasons. One Herrera is more mobile and more comfortable in possession which I think will be important against a very mobile and defensive Everton midfield of Schniederlin and Gueye. Secondly I think Fellaini works better as an impact substitute more so than Herrera. If you bring Herrera on for the last twenty minutes he won't offer you a different option, but Fellaini does. The only reason to have options on the bench is for them to be able to change the team dynamic. Fellaini does that better than Herrera imo.

Then stick with Mata, Mkhitaryan and Rashford behind Lukaku. Probably with Valencia, Bailly, Jones and maybe give Shaw a run out if he is fit enough.

4.) 15 Sep 2017 22:31:50
I posed the same question yesterday Phil. i'm not a big fellaini fan but i reognise he is playing well and his form maybe warrents the starting berth. That said herrera is a better forward passer than fellaini and in that respect he is a more like for like swap for pogba.
I would not like us to change the shape that's worked best for us so far. Particularly at home against a vulnerable everton.
So in short😂 personally i would play herrera for pogba and keep the same front 4 of miki mata rash and lukaku.
But i would not be surprised or annoyed if fellaini starts in place of herrera he has earned a start. With only 2 places In midfield at the moment herrera has gone from player of the year to 4th choice.

5.) 15 Sep 2017 22:41:40
Hit reply too soon. Was going to say that even though I would go for a Matic/ Herrera midfield I expect Mourinho to go with Matic/ Fellaini. Which considered Fellaini's form it is hard to argue with, I just feel Fellaini can have more impact from the bench than Herrera. Let's wait and see.

6.) 15 Sep 2017 22:49:53
I think we we might see Carrick and Matic a bit more in the Pogba role (which he can do) and possibly switch Mata for Lingard or Martial due to more disciplined midfield.

7.) 16 Sep 2017 02:43:03
I think we could well see smalling lindelof shaw lingard carrick tuanzebe young fellaini herrera Romero martial all start on tuesday in the league cup.

8.) 16 Sep 2017 09:08:27
I'd be amazed if Fellaini doesn't start, not just his form. Everton are a physical team and Fellaini will suit, not to mention the X factor of playing against your former club. They may be a danger from set-pieces as well so he is better equipped than Herrera to deal with that.

9.) 16 Sep 2017 11:07:54
I'd be inclined to play Carrick and Herrera. I think Carrick could control the game and Herrera could do his running and provide some bite. No harm in giving Matic a rest.

I'd play Mikki at 10 with instructions to look up and bloody well pass the ball instead of beating 4 players then trying to beat them again then losing the ball. Mikki does provide good energy in the middle though. Rashford and Martial out wide for me.

In terms of tactics, I'd play a high tempo pressing game from the off; give them no time to settle. With Carrick able to drop back into defence we could push Valencia and Blind high up the pitch.

Watching the programme about rio what a guy he is, hope he has a great future in everything he does.


1.) 29 Mar 2017 12:40:11
Yes watched that, emotional.

2.) 29 Mar 2017 14:35:32
Just watching it. Incredible family and his wife was a very good person. Rio is a great oerson too.
In this day and age when you see all the spoilt footballers and sportsman, it is a joy and very humbling to see the way Rio and his family and children have dealt with their tragedy.

3.) 29 Mar 2017 16:08:34
Watched it this morning, sad story.
