There are rumours that Angel Gomez migjt snub Utds offers and sign for Chelsea. I would be really upset to see such a talented young player leave. He needs a run in the team to prove himself. How can we afford to lose talent like his?

Salford7

1.) 13 May 2020 00:20:29
Umm probably because he won't sign a contract.

We just signed bruno who everyone is rightly raving about, there are strong links with grealish.

Also for half of the season we had lingard and pereira being chosen ahead of him for every game.

I am not surprised if he wants out and i wish him all the best.


2.) 13 May 2020 04:05:58
All the best to him. Although I don't see him getting much game time at Chelsea either. They have twice the amount of midfielders than we do all around his age looking to break into the first team.


3.) 13 May 2020 08:07:56
The concerns amongst the training staff are about his ability to cope with the EPL physically. Now while superior ability can beat physicality, the player needs to be clever enough to know how to do so. While our coaching staff can see what Gomes is capable of against EPL players every day in training.

This season his competition for places was probably as weak as he will ever have while playing for a top side. An ageing Mata, an out of form Lingard and Andreas Pereira who isn't good enough.

Since the the club have signed Bruno Fernandes and are looking at players like Grealish who would further push Gomes down the peaking order.

He is a clearly talented lad, but he needs to play a season or two of "mens" football either in the championship or in a league such as the Dutch or Portuguese league to develop his understanding and ability to cope physically with a much more demanding style of football.

To that end maybe a move to a club like Chelsea who will invariably loan him out for a year or two might be a good move. Or he will sign a new deal with us and hopefully follow a similar path.


4.) 13 May 2020 09:34:16
Invariably loan him out? Sorry Shappy, but Lampard will give him a chance if he's good enough.


5.) 13 May 2020 09:56:48
RJ28P as would ole but simple fact of the matter is he’s shown nothing when given a chance to warrant more starts.


6.) 13 May 2020 11:00:04
Gomes is very talented, but if anyone has watched him in the u23s especially this season, he’s not warranted a promotion to the first team on those performances. If he goes to Chelsea, good luck to him.

Also you have to ask where he fits in the team? Better player than Andreas and lingard potentially but he’s not really shown much yet. Bruno is top quality so he doesn’t get in there either. I don’t think he’s in the same class as Greenwood either.

A talent, but not sure if he’s going to be as big of a loss as many say.


7.) 13 May 2020 11:52:30
RJ28P, Well that's my point, if he was putting in the performances at United in training then he would be given a chance in the first team.

At United he only had Lingard, Mata and Andreas Pereira to get past before we signed Bruno.

He can play either on the wing or in the No.10 position. Chelsea tend to play either 433 or 4231, so Gomes would be competing for a wide role in a 433 or in any of the three positions between the midfield and the striker in a 4231. So he will be competing with Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Barkley, Pedro and Pulisic. Plus any other players Chelsea sign this summer.

Chelsea have an extensive history of signing young players and loaning them out. Gomes needs games every week, and currently he isn't consistent enough to do that at the top end of the EPL. So he needs a loan wherever he plays next season.


8.) 13 May 2020 13:00:49
RJ Lampard will give him a chance at the expense of whom?


9.) 13 May 2020 14:26:56
Pedro, Willian and Barkley will all likely be gone next season. And with respect, the reason why he isn't playing is because he is running his contract down, like Sancho did at City.
I've watched Gomes a lot (being fortunate enough to have access to a lot of youth games) and he's a talent on par with Hudson-Odoi and Saka if given the consistent minutes.
That said, it seems like the relationship at Utd has soured and it is right for the player to move on.


10.) 13 May 2020 14:48:12
Your right red whisky that goal in pre season against spurs didn’t show any promise. Haha. how many opportunities did he get in the number 10 position with the rest of the 1st 11 also playing.


11.) 13 May 2020 16:32:52
RJ, for the sake of this discussion, let's assume you are right about the three you mentioned. You think Gomes will slot into their MF ahead of Kante, Mount, Pulisic, Loftus, Kovacic, Gilmour, Odoi, Jorgino or Ziyach?


12.) 13 May 2020 17:51:31
Sorry pogthedog he scored one goal in a pre season match. I presume you have unlimited access to the training sessions to say he deserves a chance? Like shappy said if you don’t show enough in training to usurp the likes of pereira and Lingard then there must be a reason why he’s not playing. Ole has been a huge advocate of playing the youth and giving chances. Chong got minutes whilst refusing to sign so I find the idea he’s not playing because of refusing to sign irrelevant.


13.) 13 May 2020 19:32:41
He can certainly play wide in rotation with Odoi, Pulisic and Ziyech. As for pure no. 10s, the only one we have is Ziyech, Mount is better when allowed to sit a little deeper.


14.) 14 May 2020 00:55:21
I like gomes but the lad has reportedly been offered 30k.
Football can be simple, greenwood produced gomes hasn't. 30k and what else should we offer him?


15.) 14 May 2020 00:56:06
My worry is that if teams like Chelsea and Barcelona want to take him what is it that they feel they can get out of him that Ole cannot.

I understand all the points raised by you guys. On one hand if he was performing at a very high level then you would think that he would get a chance to shine in the first team. He is obviously not pulling up any trees but he is young and it must be terribly frustrating if you feel that you do not have rhe managers full confidence and are not going to get a run of games to settle in and prove how good you are.

We are all very happy and surprised at how well an established international £60m player like Bruno has done in such a short time. Yet he has lots of experience and is older than Gomez. Why then do people ezpect a younger player to come into the first team and immediately perform to a high level? Also on the rare times Gomez got a game it was when the team were still struggling. I really do feel he should be given the chance to make it at Utd. I know he is not quite the same player as Grealish but I think he has more natural talent.

For me the way to go would be to give him a decent contract and send him on loan for a season. He would get the games he needs, toughen up physically, and he might appreciate how special it is to have the facilities of and play for Utd. Beckham was loaned out and it didn't hurt his prospects.


16.) 14 May 2020 07:50:19
Salford, the issue is that he clearly hasn't done enough in training to convince he should start ahead of anyone else.

Under other managers you could say that maybe they don't give youth a chance. But Ole has given more than given youth a chance. People also forget that Gomes was given three starts in the Europa League, often against weaker opposition than we play most weeks in the EPL. How did Gomes do in those games? Occasional glimpses of talent, but drifted in and out of the game far too much.

If he can't do it against the likes of Astana then he will struggle against the Everton's, Spurs, Burnley's and Sheffield United's of the EPL.

He is a hugely talented player, but he isn't ready to play at the level we play at. He needs a loan or two in order to develop.

Unfortunately his contact is about to run out and he doesn't want to sign a new deal. Maybe making his debut at 16 has made him inpatient, maybe he has been told he will get more elsewhere.

Who knows. His size will hold him back in the EPL until he learns how to mitigate his lack of physicality. In youth football if you're quick you can avoid physical battles to an extent, but men's football is played at a faster pace, and quick feet alone will not get you out of trouble. You need to read the game well and position yourself in the right areas and be two steps ahead of the opposition.

It's not a case of him just bulking up, although he does look like he could be tackled by a stiff breeze. He needs to learn how to play in the men's game. He is best off doing that on loan as he will need to play 20-30 games a season to start to learn that. He can't get that here with him playing as he has done. So a loan is the solution.

If he signs for Chelsea he will almost certainly leave on loan at some point. As they are in the same boat as us.
If he signs for Barcelona I don't see him getting a huge amount of game time. They don't tend to play with a No.10 so he would be competing for one of the wide forward roles, against Messi, Dembele, Griezmann, Fati and Braithwaite, plus whoever else the club sign this summer. With Neymar being a key target.

He needs a season in the Championship, or to move to a more technical league in Europe on loan. Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium could all be good options.

I hope he makes it, whether that's with us or somewhere else. But it's a long road yet, and he needs to realise that if he is going to make the most of his potential.


17.) 14 May 2020 10:57:20
Sadly for me, Greenwood and Williams aside this is a very underwhelming crop of youngsters, referring to those of the age where they would expect to be getting chances in the first team and making an impression. I've seen Chong the most and he has shown nothing but a haircut I'm afraid. I don't buy the fact that Gomes' size is a problem either but neither has he done enough to suggest that he is any better than the thousands of other kids clubs of this magnitude scout every season. If the tens of thousands he wants every week aren't sufficient let him go, I'm sure we'll resign him for £50m in a few years!


18.) 14 May 2020 15:32:34
Spenno, most young players don't really start to have a regular impact until they are 21/ 22 years old after a season or two as squad players.

In that respect the likes of Rashford and McTominay are starting to reach that level of impact. While Henderson could when he returns from his loan, as could Tuanzebe if he can stay injury free.

However, the likes of Greenwood and Williams are ahead of where they would normally expect for players of their ages. While the likes of Laird, Mengi, Garner, Levitt, Chong and Gomes still have huge potential, but are probably a year or two away from making a serious impact in the first team beyond a few games.

That's 12 young players in total who have a chance to make a telling impact in our first team within the next few years. That's insane and at levels not really seen outside of Ajax or Barcelona.

While we have also signed AWB and Shaw who were two of the best young players in the league when we signed them. Dan James from the Championship. While we are chasing players such as Rice, Rodon, Sancho, Bellingham, Grealish etc some of the best young British talent around.

I would say we have two great groups of young players in our squad. The older group of players between the ages of 21-24 including; Henderson, Tuanzebe, AWB, Shaw, McTominay, Rashford, James and Martial.

With a younger group between 17-20 including; Larid, Williams, Dalot, Mengi, Garner, Levitt, Mejbri, Gomes, Chong and Greenwood.

Giving us 18 EIGHTEEN! players at our club who have a good chance of making it as at least good squad players, with some of them having genuine world class potential.

Seems to me that Arsenal potentially could have a really good season. They have a young manager who in a short time has identified their weaknesses and bought the right players to strengthen their team. He has given the players a structure which plays to their strengths and all without spending stupid amounts. Shows what can be done with the right manager and management structure.

Salford7

1.) 16 Sep 2020 08:21:46
True Salford. Ideally you would need both, like City or Liverpool. But you would be able to do just about fine if you have atleast one of those, a structure or a manager. Chelsea seem to have a solid structure behind a rookie Lampard to help him out. Arsenal too have a good structure behind Arteta. We have a novice manager and a hopeless structure behind him for support. No wonder its 7 years since we last one a PL title because a strong manager would stand up to the board and demand like Jose did while a weak manager would toe the party line. No one would win that way.


2.) 16 Sep 2020 08:39:41
a strong manager also got sacked shan. the owners don't give a crap about what happens on the pitch as long as the money keeps pouring in.

how long have they been searching for this DOF?


i saw something online about owners putting there own money into clubs in the last 5 years and we are bottom of the list with negative 89 million.

evertons and villas owners have more ambition and that's not slagging them teams off but we should have higher ambitions than to just finish in the top 4

the season starts on saturday and we have signed 1 player, we have seen this before with moyes and jose. won't be long before some get there wish and ole is sacked.


3.) 16 Sep 2020 08:41:49
Salford7
Arsenal are on the edge financially owing largely to their purchase of Nicolas Pepe for a huge sum which they didn't really have. Another season without UCL football might see them in financial trouble. And they signed Willain who largely plays a siilar role to the said big money signing, Pepe.
Although Arteta has shown promising signs but still they aren't a top team yet. They do look lot closer to top 4 this season than they did last year but their transfers are driven by Kia Joorabchian.
But they do have some really promising young players so they have hope.

Mind you OGS also had a similar start to his tenure here and hasn't kicked on so let's see where it goes for them.


4.) 16 Sep 2020 09:22:05
Thats what i meant too Bolger. A strong manager would demand and we saw what the amateurs did. If things stand as they are today, Ole would soon be going the same path.

The ambitions are defined by the fans as much as the owners. You could see the celebrations when we finished 3rd because it was a "step in the right direction" forgetting that we finished 2nd the season before. The fans need to be more demanding too else we will just be stuck in this vicious circle of top 4 and then not backing the manager and then we start again with a new manager.

I thought Liverpool winning the league would be a good kick up the back side of the United board but seems they don't really care.


5.) 16 Sep 2020 10:02:20
Arsenal haven't won a league title in a long time, it been 16 years since they won the league and they won't win one anytime soon. Their structure is hardly great either. I agree with Chelsea, City and Liverpool recently. I believe we are taking steps in the right direction and we are a lot closer than people think. But the proof will be in how this season goes, hopefully we all get behind ole and the team and we have a good season.


6.) 16 Sep 2020 10:06:11
Dont forget LVG -not everyones cup of tea but highly regarded throughout Europe for his ability to identify a clubs weaknesses, implement structure and development -things that maybe made him better as a DOF - and he was apparently shocked at how poor we were were in so many ares behind the scenes. Still great value if you catch him on dutch tv talking football.


7.) 16 Sep 2020 10:11:13
oh sorry shan i read it wrong pal

for me i don't think that matters anymore shan, the club won't change the way its run for me until either we drop down the table or the owners leave.


i think as a fan i was happy getting 3rd because we have been in and out of champions league spots the past 7 seasons and everything that comes with getting there was only positive for the club,

attracting better players earning more money which we thought the club would put back into the team

we all had high expectations of this window, ole has given his targets months ago.

woodward and judge and who ever else is dealing with transfers are to slow. if they don't want to pay the money for sancho move on we should have all our signings sorted for the first game,

give the manager and players the best possible start for the season.


8.) 16 Sep 2020 10:57:39
Arsenal may be in a difficult position money wise but they have still gone out and bought good players at sensible prices.

More importantly they have a good young manager who has transformed the players mentality and the proof is in the way they have beaten top teams recently and won something. They are undoubtedly on an upwards curve.

Look at their team now and you see a solid goal keeper a good central defence two good full backs. Decent midfield and a top finisher in Aubamuyang. Now compare that to our team. Keeper is ok. Left full back not as good. We still need a top centre half alongside Maguire. We have no winger and can we honestly say that we have a striker who is definitely going to get 25 goals a season line Aubamuyang? In midfield we have Pogba who nobody knows if he is really committed to the cause.

Then look at the way we play. Do we have a defined system. I don't think so. Also is Ole tactically as astute as Arteta. I am not sure he is.

Above all though is that we seem to lack leadership right at the top of the club ie the Owners, Board and Woodward. Leadership for Utd means setting the right example and being professional and expecting and demanding the best in everything you do. Seems to me that if the club cannot get deals done then they are failing the manager. Yes they have backed him with Maguire and Bruno but they need to address the other signings Ole needs and the structural problems which Ed 002 so often had commented on.

City, Liverpool, Chelsea and now Arsenal are showing us the way to do it. We either do things properly or we get left behind. I don't mind if we don't win a title as long as its only because we did our best and others were better. But it will really annoy me if we are the authors of our own misfortune by shoddy management.


9.) 16 Sep 2020 11:49:29
Arsenal really 🤦‍♂️.


10.) 16 Sep 2020 12:23:24
Salford would you rather arsenal's squad than our? I'd argue we are stronger than them and in a better position to challenge for the title.


11.) 16 Sep 2020 12:57:23
Our amateur manager and amateur setup had a better season than both Chelsea and Arsenal last season.


12.) 16 Sep 2020 13:33:20
Salford if you think they have a better squad then I’d highly disagree. They have made great signings but remains to be seen as to how they will gel and perform. I agree arteta probably has more tactical nous than ole having worked with pep but I think you’re just throwing the toys out of the pram so to speak as we haven’t signed an abundance of players.

There is still time, and if the right player isn’t available then I would rather not plump for the stop gap signings and get bitten in the ass in trying to get rid of them in a year or two.

We do need a right forward/ winger, and imo another CB.
Yes it’s probably amateurish not letting Smalling leave but even if he did there’s no guarantee we could shift jones and Rojo to make further room for a CB. Even with Smalling gone it leaves us with 7 cbs in the first team if you count mengi. If the players don’t leave we cannot justify spending a pretty penny on a new shiny centre back.

We are getting some way to shifting the deadwood and I would say arsenal are in a similar situation. They’ve made signings because they were right but they will still need to clear out the deadwood to create a title winning keeper.

I honestly hope arsenal do crack on as they would have done it in the right way but for now I see no reason why we cannot and will not be finishing higher than them again.

It’s easy to be envious when clubs are signing new players but maybe the upgrades we need just aren’t there so why plump for the same squad filling quality we already have?

We have the numbers we just need the quality. And they are rarely available this summer.


13.) 16 Sep 2020 14:08:26
Title winning team* that should be.


 

 

13 Sep 2020 14:26:31
I still do not get why so many Utd fans want to crucify Pogba. Granted he hasn't set the world alight but he is capable of sublime football and in the correct team supported by good players he will shine. He did for Juve and for France.

Utd are slowly building. Last season when Bruno came in Pogba played a supporting not starring role and we never heard a peep out of him. No complaints about him no longer being the centre of attention. He sees passes that most players will never do and then he has the ability to make the pass successfully. Keep him and get more top quality players around him and we will see the benefit.

Salford7

1.) 13 Sep 2020 14:43:16
He also costs us games because he can't be bothered to track runners, or gives the ball away I bad positions because he's showing off.

When he plays for France he actually makes an effort.

He just doesn't want to be here.


2.) 13 Sep 2020 15:23:48
I’m told he has dominated games. Name me 3 games he has dominated, in fact name me 1. You can’t because he hasn’t.

He’s all image and no substance. Clearly he has all the attributes to be one of the best footballers in the world but he rarely shows those attributes, and even when he does it is fleeting.

He’s sloppy in possession, he gives the ball away far too frequently.

You don’t get why people crucify him, I don’t get why people rate him so highly.


3.) 13 Sep 2020 15:27:27
City away. Took the game by the scruff of the neck and dragged us back in.


4.) 13 Sep 2020 16:27:25
As Mpez says, City away. I would also say Arsenal away, before he was sent off, the same season I believe. He tends to have periods where he is on top, then either gets injured or suspended and it takes a while for him to get into his stride again.


5.) 13 Sep 2020 16:55:02
Call of Duty v’s Rashford and Sancho. He took those boys to the cleaners.

{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣


6.) 13 Sep 2020 17:14:19
He never dominated the game against City. Scoring 2 goals and dominating for 90 minutes is some difference.


7.) 13 Sep 2020 17:13:34
Apart from getting caught in possession a couple of times in games, I've actually been impressed with the way he's played once the season resumed. Tidy, understated, not trying to do too much and keeping it simple. Letting Bruno do the fancy stuff.


8.) 13 Sep 2020 17:23:43
Salford 7, he gets grief because he is lazy and timid which makes him an ineffective footballer.

People yet confused into thinking he is good because he looks like he should be good.

That no one can name a single game where he has bossed it says everything.


9.) 13 Sep 2020 17:54:50
Because he’s been abysmal. Not up for the fight. I can only think of the City game where he dragged us to a victory.

Not to mention the number of goals he gives away and the need for a “new challenge”.


10.) 13 Sep 2020 22:13:13
Must be watching a different pogba to you Nou 😂.


11.) 13 Sep 2020 23:40:40
I think people develop a view on a player sometimes, and struggle to accept when the player does well. Luke Shaw was another that people couldn't bring themselves to say played well, even when he did.

I've never been a big fan of his at all, but I'll still give credit where it's due. Watch the games back, and try and forget it's Pogba. Apart from the obvious mistake against Southampton, yes, I thought he played well.


12.) 14 Sep 2020 09:53:51
People are going to have to come up with a definition for dominating a game otherwise peoples pre conceived biases against pogba are going to stop people saying he ever dominated a game.

Is it a game where he dictated the game from deep, a game where he scored goals and got assists? Because he has done both for us at times whether people like it or not.


13.) 14 Sep 2020 12:13:56
DSG, it doesn't need defining. Players can dominate a game from anywhere on the pitch. You know it when you see it, no?


14.) 14 Sep 2020 15:30:06
The problem with you know it when you see it is that point of view is prone to biases.

There are plenty of performances that if put in my bruno fernandes people would say he dominated the game. But if pogba put in that same exact performance people would say he didn't dominate the game.

Fans, football pundits are just fickle like that, they get ideas in their head, most likely fueled by media portrayals of players and are not for turning.


15.) 14 Sep 2020 16:27:12
Its not because he is showing off, it’s because we have played Pogba too deep. He is open to being pressed and overturning the ball in a dangerous position, I said it numerous times last season, opposition took the ball off him, yet still we continued, numbing tactics. It’s how we play him that has been an issue last season. He needs to get it further forward but we can’t seem to grasp it. Maybe that is one of the reasons he doesn’t want to be here. Decisions need to be made, crazy to let him go into the last season and no doubt have it extended before he walks away for nothing. Just sell him, be realistic on price and replace him. If he wants to stay, Ed says he doesn’t, that’s different. It seems there are egos at stake amongst the amateurs, plus I suspect a loss of precious media clicks.


16.) 14 Sep 2020 16:29:19
Dominated the game against City that's hilarious. You could also put Sanchez in the same category because he had 2 assists that day. He's done sod all since he came, all i hear is people say he has the potential to be one of the best. well when are we going to see it? 4 years and counting. The amount of times he looses possession is frightening and then he sits on his arse and throws his hands up in the air and complains to the referee that he was fouled. I am sick of hearing about him. He's done more for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram than he has for Man United.

Talk sport saying Messi has an agreement that he can activate a clause allowing him to leave for FREE. If true can see him at City. Would be a huge bonus for them.

PSG have showed today how important it is to have a top class midfield. They have been unable to impose themselves on Bayern and provide the bullets for their front men. At the same time Bayern have shown how important it is to have a good tactical plan and the teamwork and commitment to all carry it out.

Ever bangera still pulling the strings for Sevilla, he was one of those we were linked with year after year . got to nullify him. I still think it will be close but if we can play as we did before the Southampton-Placace wham games we will do it.

Severe will win it. They will beat us (again) and beat inter in the final.

Sevilla*.

Nothing like a bit of optimism DJ. 😂
I understand why you are thinking that way.

We must dominate the midfield most importantly.
Feed Martial and Greenwood as quickly as possible.

Dan James,

You say again like we have played them loads of times and always lose!

I agree that I think it will be a really tough game, I said this last week and ken seemed quite annoyed at me for suggesting they are a good side 😂.

They beat us in the Champions League couple of years ago hence why I wrote again.

{Ed047's Note - just go with it ken, you know what he’s like 🤦‍♂️

11.) 12 Aug 2020 23:43:11

Jota in talks with Liverpool apparently £35m. Seems cheap. And yet again others strengthen whilst we dither.

I tbink its unfair to say Bale has no desire to play football. From the outside looking in it seems to me that he does want to play but Zidane does not want him. If that is true and that as various journalists have reported over the years that Bale was frozen out and offered around I can quite believe he might feel insulted.

He has been a fantastic footballer and I think been treated shabbily by Madrid IF the reports are true. You do not win so many titles and become man of the match in a champions league final if you are rubbish.

It may even work in his favour that because he has not played so much latterly he might be able to play at a higher level for longer. A fit Bale would definitely help Utd but I agree with others it should be on a pay per play contract.

So so sad that people post abuse. Has C.V. not taught people anything. especially that we should be nicer to each other and appreciate when others do things for us.

Sorry but I think we need a special-ist centre back not jack of all trades. He is a good player no doubt and a great squad player but we need to get the very best we can for whichever position we need filling.

It's true that these smaller clubs cannot realistically survive in such low attendances but with the billions in the game it is a disgrace that money does not filter down to them.

As important is the possibility of small clubs and their supporters to dream and in some cases like Wigan to achieve the seemingly impossible.

Also if the lower leagues do kot exist it lots the influx of players able to break into the game and progress to the higher leagues. That's not beneficial long term for the game in this country.

Maybe in this C.V. era all league clubs and the governing bodies could for once put petty jealousies and self interest aside and work for the common good and bring in a sensible workable set of responsible financial guidelines so that clubs stop spending stupid amounts of money and lower league clubs do not go bust.

Arsenal may be in a difficult position money wise but they have still gone out and bought good players at sensible prices.

More importantly they have a good young manager who has transformed the players mentality and the proof is in the way they have beaten top teams recently and won something. They are undoubtedly on an upwards curve.

Look at their team now and you see a solid goal keeper a good central defence two good full backs. Decent midfield and a top finisher in Aubamuyang. Now compare that to our team. Keeper is ok. Left full back not as good. We still need a top centre half alongside Maguire. We have no winger and can we honestly say that we have a striker who is definitely going to get 25 goals a season line Aubamuyang? In midfield we have Pogba who nobody knows if he is really committed to the cause.

Then look at the way we play. Do we have a defined system. I don't think so. Also is Ole tactically as astute as Arteta. I am not sure he is.

Above all though is that we seem to lack leadership right at the top of the club ie the Owners, Board and Woodward. Leadership for Utd means setting the right example and being professional and expecting and demanding the best in everything you do. Seems to me that if the club cannot get deals done then they are failing the manager. Yes they have backed him with Maguire and Bruno but they need to address the other signings Ole needs and the structural problems which Ed 002 so often had commented on.

City, Liverpool, Chelsea and now Arsenal are showing us the way to do it. We either do things properly or we get left behind. I don't mind if we don't win a title as long as its only because we did our best and others were better. But it will really annoy me if we are the authors of our own misfortune by shoddy management.

He is very mature for his age in this. Just hope he is focused on the pitch. We need him to score more than last year.

I think getting into the top four will be a lot harder this year.

Arsenal are on the way up. Decent squad and a very strong manager who has already won more in six months or so than Ole in a year and a half.

Chelsea have bought well with more players to come in and won't be as wasteful in front of goal with Werner and defensively will be a lot stronger too.

Realistically Leicester and Wolves will probably not be as good as last year. So I think top five should be a certainty but one never knows.

As to the points total I think if we can turn six draws into wins then that will be where we end up points wise in relation to last year

Fulham seem to be weak but Leeds and West Brom I think will be a lot better than Watford and Norwich. Villa will have a problem if Grealish goes and if they don't get better attackers. Newcastle without funds may have a tough time but overall I think the league this year is stronger than last. And City and Liverpool will be desperate to win the title.
