Romano saying that United will fold and give Dortmund the 120m.

Romano says a lot. Seems very little is actually accurate anymore.


2.) 02 Oct 2020 19:39:26
Where have you seen this Shan? Not seen it myself. So many reports atm. One minute we are convinced Sancho is coming and the next it’s dembele. Can’t wait for Tuesday when the transfer madness is over.


3.) 02 Oct 2020 19:43:45
Wouldn't blame them if they rejected it, utd have messed them about and left them no time to find a replacement.


4.) 02 Oct 2020 19:47:06
Even I don't see it anywhere.
His last update was that price quoted for Sancho before 2 months and now are the same.
Telles deal is in balance as we cannot agree a fee.
CB will depend on players leaving.


5.) 02 Oct 2020 20:46:10
It would be almost hilarious that we stump up what they want and they say no lol, serve us right.


6.) 02 Oct 2020 22:45:28
Almost, Welsh 😁.

Looks like Levy is properly backing Jose this summer. In talks with Ruben Dias now.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 25 Sep 2020 13:59:02
i have them finishing third in the league this year and may give city some tough competition. All said and done, jose is a very good manager and the Spurs team profile suits him - not many prima donnas, mature players, good physicality, anything he achieves will be more than what they did under Poch, profile of the club is not too big to overshadow him etc.


2.) 25 Sep 2020 14:12:00
Interesting if Spurs get him in when we were unable to a couple of years ago.


It’s still Mourinho though. The novelty will wear off.


3.) 25 Sep 2020 14:13:33
True that RLF and not to forget it is Jose's second season too. So all stars aligned. I have them winning the Europa this year.

I thought Levy was the penny pinching one, Ed is outscoring him there.
Probably selling his house to gather funds for some late transfers 😂😂.


4.) 25 Sep 2020 14:32:23
I don't think Spurs will pull up trees this year. The defence looks iffy even with the additions of Doherty, Reguilon and possibly Dias. Three players who have never played together before is hardly a great start, even if all three do well it will take time for them to work well as a unit. Alderweireld is declining and suffers too many injuries, Aurier is a liability defensively as is Sanchez. Tanganga looks a good prospect, expect Jose to ruin him.

The Spurs midfield looks lightweight and lacking creativity. Ndombele hasn't succeed yet. Winks is decent, but needs a player along side him with physicality and drive. Sissoko is Sissoko, good some weeks, shocking others. Alli has been on a downward spiral for 18 months. Lo Celso looked good last season. But he is the only one.

They have an interesting mix of players going forward. Obviously Kane is top class, as is Son. Bergwijn looks a player too. Yet they also have (Lame) la and Moura who are very hit and miss. While adding Bale does add a potentially top player, however, will he be fit often enough?

When I look at this Spurs team I see a new and untested defence, a very poor midfield and a potentially blockbuster front line.

I think the best way to get the most out of this Spurs side is to outscore their opponents. However, they have a safely first manager who might well put the shackles on their best players.

They also have several key players who have in the last few seasons or so struggled with injury, no one would be surprised to see Spurs line up without Alderweireld, Bale and Kane due to injury.

I don't see Spurs challenging for the top 4 this season.


5.) 25 Sep 2020 14:39:14
Spurs furloughed their staffs and are outspending us.

Most importantly, they are improving the squad and backing their manager.

I'm just tired waiting for club to show some ambition to move us forward.


6.) 25 Sep 2020 14:52:44
Shappy, i will give you three names of United and tell me if they gelled even when they didn't play together before. Ferdinand, Vidic and Evra.

You are basing your arguments on a lot of ifs. If Kane and Bale stay fit, if the defence gels, if Sissoko isn't hit wnd miss. What if all of them hit.


7.) 25 Sep 2020 15:47:27
Shan, do you remember Vidic's and Evra's first season? They joined in January and looked a little iffy for the first few months. It wasn't until the start of their first full season that they started to play well as individuals and as a defensive unit.

After they had 6 months and a full pre-season to gel with their teammates.

Can Reguilon, Alderweireld, Doherty and Dias all speak the same language? If not how well will they communicate while trying to build up an on pitch relationship.

Defence more than any other area on the pitch requires months of training, playing and working together to build up and to be able to defend in a unit.

Very few teams get instant success when changing 3 of their back 4.


8.) 25 Sep 2020 16:08:58
Dias joining City apparently.


9.) 25 Sep 2020 15:36:15
I can't see them getting past us or Chelsea and possibly a rejuvenated Arsenal for top 4.


10.) 25 Sep 2020 15:41:18
i am with Shan on this one. I think they will do well. The spurs midfield with winks, sissokko, ndombele, lo Celso, Fernandes has good options. Hojberg is an astute signing and i expect him to do well under jose as he is very good at doing a job (herrera style) . Their defence will also be vastly improved with reguillon and doherty, not to mention if they get Ruben Dias.

You could even argue that their starting 11 with Lloris, reguillon, doherty, alderweireld, Dias (if), Winks, Sossoko, Locelso, Bale, Son, Kane is almost as good as ours. Bonus is they have less focus and pressure on them to perform, a better options frrom the bench with moura, bergwin, ndombele, a new striker maybe and alli, than we do.


11.) 25 Sep 2020 16:26:54
Tanganga looks a good prospect, expect Jose to ruin him? Shappy 😂 I would never have said Jose ruins young players.

Your analysis 🤦‍♂️ my god. I hope jose is reading this, I'm sure he could do with a few of your 'coaching' pointers 😂😂.


12.) 25 Sep 2020 16:45:30
Loll Shappy really hates Jose.

If they get Dias and with Mourinhi in charge i would forget about top 4.

City, liverpool and Spurs will be top 3 and then Arsenal or Chelsea will take the 4th position.

The only way we will make top 4 this year is if we sign a good cb along with a striker or rw.

With Ole and his coaching staff i absolutely have no faith! .


13.) 25 Sep 2020 18:43:17
Thought Dias was for city and skriniar for spurs. at least that’s what was being reported earlier 🤷‍♂️.


14.) 25 Sep 2020 16:46:58
Ed i wanted to ask you what is th3 difference between a manager and! Coach?

Is the coach responsible to teach players how to play or is it headed by directions from the manager as to how and what tactics to use? .

{Ed002's Note - In many cases it is not something that differs much - "manager" is used in the vernacular in the UK. Some "managers" actually have the title "head coach". In mainland Europe many coaches will not be part of the transfer process. In England they tend to have more of a say.}


15.) 25 Sep 2020 20:47:13
Spurs won't finish in the top 3 100%. I can see spurs struggling and mourinho leaving before the seasons finished. He will cause a fraction in their squad, bale signing will also probably hinder them, they have a strict wage bill and I'm sure other will be asking for a pay rise unsuccessfully and that will cause them problems too.

Mourinho used to be a good manager, when the players were men, they could take it, nowadays it will break a lot of them, that is his biggest downfall, the evolution and the younger generation.


16.) 25 Sep 2020 22:22:56
Lads, it’s Tottenham.

In all seriousness, I don’t care what they’re doing. We should be worrying about ourselves.


17.) 25 Sep 2020 23:22:49
Bale will tear the league up can’t believe people writing him off.


18.) 26 Sep 2020 00:30:17
Okay thanks ed.


19.) 26 Sep 2020 09:26:19
Well not all of us follow golf RobbieWood, didn't know they used a league structure now.


20.) 26 Sep 2020 09:34:38
The only thing I can see bale tearing up is the green on the 18th hole. He will most likely be injured for a large part of the season. He has had a lot of muscle injuries over the past few years and he is a pace and power player. Kinda reminds me of Owen.


21.) 26 Sep 2020 19:36:34
This original post has aged badly. Levy has no money for Dias.


 

 

31 Aug 2020 11:11:12
Heard a rumour from the second most reliable source after Ed002 that Matt Judge took a flight from Amsterdam to Cologne. Wonder what he could be doing in Germany now.

Source, twitter ofcourse. 😁😁.

City have withdrawn their offer. Chelsea intersted.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 15 Jan 2018 22:09:18
Cant follow the figures though although I doubt any journo knows. The Indy saying Arsenal wanted Martial PLUS cash? and now its 30 million PLUS Miki? neither of those deals look good to me.


2.) 15 Jan 2018 22:54:54
I can't see Chelsea splashing the cash when there is an unknown with the manager. Probably going public to satisfy fans that they tried.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 02:04:16
Replacement for Hazard is my guess. Hopefully just BS, but if they are in the mix it will be a problem for us I think - these foreigners seem to love London, I doubt they spend much time partying, learning the history and shops you can find anywhere - it's just convenience and the 'image'.

I genuinely don't see the draw in London for a professional footballer over other major cities in the UK.

Di Marzio reporting that we have reached an agreement with Sanchez and his agents.

Shan UNITED boy

Than surely we have. that guy is special at news.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 14:13:10
That guy is specially wrong everytime he opens his mouth.

Incredible.


3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:29:19
Yeah sure he is mikon. What planet you living on. Has always been incredibly accurate. Most have some decent sources.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 10:31:48
Incredibly accurate? that's a stretch, sure he is better than some but he is wrong about transfers all the time!

GDS2, can you kindly point me to the post that said we should have put 5 past a team, let alone Liverpool? I can't seem to find it but funny enough all your posts have that marker. So kindly help.

Jred, you keep asking people their expectations, yours were that your father in law (Ole) survives the season unscathed. isn't that true? So it really doesn't matter to you how we play. When we lose, its just one game. PSG, RBL, Palace, Spurs, City, Baseksehir and Arsenal have all beaten us this season. That is 7 games and after every one of those defeats you have come here and told us that "its just one game". These were defeats. We rode our luck against West Ham, Brighton, Southampton and Wolves. And the worst part was that we played with 11 men and Oles dog behind the ball against City, Chelsea and Liverpool. Are we Man Utd or a goddamn Sunday Pub goers United that we are so scared of teams. Where is the "you score 3 we score 4" attitude? Ole is a very negative manager and always sets up not to lose.

Hey but we shouldn't be complaining about jred's father in law and his ultra negative tactics because we sit top of the league.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 19 Jan 2021 03:33:10
We sit top of the league because the bar has significantly fallen. As Shappy said earlier on, this points total would have us 6th and 4th over the last two years.

Points dropped against our rivals Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal, City, Leicester and Liverpool. 4 points from 18. Showing some ambition in those games could have seen us running away with the league.

Ole is a negative coach. If our previous manager turned out those defensive performances this year plus our embarrassing exit in the Champions League, he would have been roasted.

Looking back at those fixtures leaves a "what if" scenario in my head. We have the players to win any game of football. But I think our manager would rather the headlines after a draw instead of actually trying to win these matches.

The good thing is, the team have shown they can be challenging for the league at the halfway point. So anything other than a proper title challenge this year will be a failure.


2.) 19 Jan 2021 04:51:02
The bar has fallen for some clubs but fortunately Ole and utd have mantained the level. 😁😁.


3.) 19 Jan 2021 06:34:44
For someone who played in some great attacking teams Ole s tactics are often cowardly. You don't need a Keane, Beckham, Giggs to do it, you need 11 players well coached with a work ethic and commitment to getting the ball down, forward passing, lots of movement on and off the ball. We see it in Europe often, smaller teams that are a joy to watch when they play in Europa or CL. they don't have stars but you think "I wish we played like that "or "I hope we don't draw them " Coaching, mentality . I don't know something is missing but we need to step up to close the gap that I believe will be there at the end of the season again.


4.) 19 Jan 2021 07:35:18
Cowardly, hilarious.


5.) 19 Jan 2021 07:48:52
It’s bad on here when we lose. It’s now seemingly worse when we draw.


6.) 19 Jan 2021 08:10:33
😂😂we are not doing well everyone else is doing bad .
Its like when we win because the other team had a bad game.
The target last season was top 4 until we got top 4 .

This season we are top of thecleague at the half way point but thst isn't good enough either 😂😂.


7.) 19 Jan 2021 08:11:03
All on the back of a draw against Liverpool away .


8.) 19 Jan 2021 11:17:39
Shan,

Have you ever heard of exaggerating? Obviously not.

Some of the posts after a draw are hilarious, no wonder other clubs fans laugh at us and call us spoilt.


9.) 19 Jan 2021 12:18:18
Yep, Cowardly. Same as the performances against City, Arsenal, Chelsea at home -never played for a win -Liverpool away last weekend against a makeshift defence with Cavani well rested it would have been a statement to have started him. first shot on target after 34 minutes . that's attacking football is it, from a team with self belief at the top of the table that should be able to go toe to toe with a rival or is it the mark of a team hoping to contain the opposition and get a lucky break a la Jose ? Standards and expectations have obviously fallen amongst fans, I doubt that was Liverpools toughest game this season. A point at Anfield yep decent, probably the same Wolves, Southampton, Everton would settle for.


10.) 19 Jan 2021 12:53:49
True GDS, there are lots of things i haven't heard like "we need to put 5 past Liverpool". You still haven't shown me that.

Jred yet again you side step the question.


11.) 19 Jan 2021 13:35:31
Shan,

I explained it was an exaggeration mate, have a nice day, enjoy the top of the table.


12.) 19 Jan 2021 13:56:27
Shan
Its not the question, its you I avoid, its all nonsense imo .
I'm not even sure there is a question above?

{Ed047's Note - there was more than one question but you dodge away as usual. Painful.


13.) 19 Jan 2021 14:40:55
R we Sunday league goers? I would say NO.


14.) 19 Jan 2021 14:37:05
What was the question?

{Ed047's Note - clearly home learning isn’t working for you


15.) 19 Jan 2021 16:25:17
Funny jred, if 5 replies on one post of mine is you avoiding me, my god if you took interest in me i would have to scoot to a parallel universe.


16.) 19 Jan 2021 16:47:35
Shan only 1 of them was a reply to you and of course this one .
But your right that is one to many.


17.) 19 Jan 2021 17:06:48
Hey we have a quick learner. Clearly things aren't as bad as some would have you believe 😁😁.


18.) 19 Jan 2021 23:17:50
Can any of the Eds explain why posts like the ones on this thread make it through? Just seems like empty name-calling to me.

I only ask because I often try to pick Shan up on his hyperbole and my posts sometimes don’t get uploaded. I’d like to think my points come across as reasoned and fair!


 

 

17 Jan 2021 18:25:01
Boring boring boring. yet again we set up to defend deep. didn't have a go at their midfielder's defence. Pathetic. Havent beaten any of the top 6 this season.

But we stay top for now but City now have it in their hands.

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed004's Note - Going toe to toe with Liverpool at Anfield is never a recommended strategy. We were very unlucky not to win that I feel. Bruno should score and Pogbas was a great chance. Just sloppy in our attacking play today}


1.) 17 Jan 2021 18:28:35
Ed004 this isn’t the same liverpool side we’ve been used too. They had a makeshift defence and yet we barely went at it. We were content for the draw and rarely showed any ambition to go at them. Missed a big chance.

{Ed004's Note - a draw at Anfield I still think is a decent result and we really should have won it at the end.}


2.) 17 Jan 2021 18:42:27
So what would your reaction have been had Fernandez scored at the end?


3.) 17 Jan 2021 18:51:06
Alty Jim, if my aunt had a moustache, i would call her uncle. But she doesn't and Bruno didnt.


4.) 17 Jan 2021 18:51:23
It was not an exciting game, true, but It was pretty much what I expected. If Fernandez or Pogba takes their chance and we win 1-0 most people would be saying Ole had set the team up correctly and that it was a great result. We came very close to breaking a phenomenal home record. We didn't quite do it, but whether we ultimately succeeded or not, doesn't change whether or not it was a well constructed tactical performance.


5.) 17 Jan 2021 19:07:59
Sorry Shawthing but I disagree. Liverpool have been not playing well recently had a makeshift defence and we lacked ambition. We should have thumped them three or four nil.


6.) 17 Jan 2021 19:19:15
Decent point, wasn’t bored at any point, no finger nails left, they haven’t lost at home for 68 games and we are moaning we didn’t go at them and smashed them, their 5 best attacking threats were all in the team and we kept a clean sheet and defended extremely well, 2 away clean sheets in a week after none all season feels good.

This time last year we had just lost at Liverpool to go 20+ points behind them and pretty much give them the title, the difference a year makes in football is huge. Pogba scores and it’s a great performance.


7.) 17 Jan 2021 18:53:20
Ed004, that's Anfield with supporters. An empty Anfield is just another football park. This was a poor Liverpool team whose attackers are woefully out of form and a makeshift defence. Why didn't we have a go at them?

{Ed004's Note - We had two clear cut chances to score and were just one correct through ball away from scoring. Another day and Pogba/Bruno slots in Rashford on one of the many occasions we have}


8.) 17 Jan 2021 19:28:49
A lot is being made of the fact that Liverpool cbs are missing.
VVD is s big miss i'm not sure about the other 2, I think fabinho looks there best cb after VVD
But fab and henderson didn't do much wrong today .
Regardless of what people seem to think liverpool are still a very good team .

Nice to see shaw get some praise on here our 2018 player of the season has been playing well for a while now .
Also I think maguire is playing well again.


9.) 17 Jan 2021 19:51:48
Only difference one year on GDS is that we are top but our fans are still moaning like we are 20 points behind 🤷‍♂️.


10.) 17 Jan 2021 20:16:44
Agree on shaw jred. He was very good today and had been solid all season.
The whole defence played well.
A draw is a fine result.
I didn't enjoy the game or our approach but the result was fine.
Rash was poor bruno martial just as bad but so was mane salah and firmino.
We had 2 best chances but were 2nd best most of the game.
I'm not a big fan of snatch and grab football but its getting results. Happy to be top of the league.


11.) 18 Jan 2021 00:09:37
Problem is a patten emerges, when Bruno doesn’t play well we don’t win.


12.) 18 Jan 2021 11:19:17
Stand,

I thought Bruno was poor against Burnley, we won 1-0. Where’s the pattern?


 

 

12 Jan 2021 21:09:00
If it had been SAF, Moyes, LvG or Jose, the ref would have had an earful for that refereeing of the game so far. 4th official would have had his ears murdered by now. But the nice guy just smiles.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 12 Jan 2021 21:51:43
Wouldn’t make a difference though would it. What an idiotic stick to try to hit Ole with.


2.) 12 Jan 2021 22:11:26
Just stop moaning and get behind the team for God's sake.


3.) 12 Jan 2021 22:13:40
A stick nonetheless. Get with it Alty Jim. You should know better by now. We look at anything to beat Ole with. Even his dogs name.

We go top🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰.


4.) 12 Jan 2021 22:23:37
Yes a great goal by Maguire, oh erm no. The scrutiny on Shaw's tackle was ridiculous. He played the ball and barely touched the other player, the Burnley player made an absolute meal of the challenge. There were lots of late challenges by Burnley players that never seemed to get looked at. We seem to have very little protection from referees lately. Very few yellows are given to opposing teams against us this season. Maybe the players and the manager need to be more vocal about it.


5.) 12 Jan 2021 22:29:25
Hahaha shameless Alty isn’t it.


6.) 12 Jan 2021 22:30:14
Alty, some people recognise flaws and others search for them. Great win tonight. Well done Ole.


7.) 12 Jan 2021 22:49:34
I started typing at half time but didn’t bother.

Shan, we are top of the league. Nothing else matters as far as football is concerned.

It’s also not 1995 any more. People don’t do that these days. They don’t get away with it.

Enjoy the next few days.


8.) 12 Jan 2021 23:13:47
Supasub

I just think that VAR was already in use for a certain red card.

There was definitely enough in the Shaw tackle to go back and review. When you saw the overhead you could see the whole burnley team stop and run towards the tackle. So it impacted the potential red.

Was it a foul? In this game, probably just play on. But it could easily be a yellow (and some refs would even give a red) . In the context of a certain red at the other end, not surprising that the foul is given and a yellow.

Pretty terrible luck, but j just think human nature for a ref and VAR to gi that route.

Imagine how sick Burnley would be down to 10 men. Would have been all over the back pages. Scouse would have been up in arms.

I think the Maguire goal should have stood. But I prefer we won this way.


9.) 13 Jan 2021 01:48:30
Wohooo we top guys now let's smash liverpool.


10.) 13 Jan 2021 04:15:38
I will remember the term "shameless" GDS2. Next time there is no stopping me.


 

 

07 Jan 2021 05:33:45
Not to start another gang war.

But should this game be looked at in isolation or not? This was yet another semi final that we didn't win. This is another trophy that we won't be winning this year.

Why make only 2 subs when you got 5 and wait 75 minutes to make the first one? Donny van de Bench again missing. He should leave this window. So should Telles.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 07 Jan 2021 06:43:55
I do feel for VDB. Pogba can do no wrong under OGS and still get game time.


2.) 07 Jan 2021 06:49:24
Shan, the only ones that needs to leave are Ole and his coaching staff.

Defensive mistakes throughout the season doesn't reflect just on the players alone it has more to do with the defensive coaching. There are also the obvious issues which have been discussed over here a lot of times regarding Ole and all.

Ole has done his bit to sort of raise the hopes and excitement at the club with good football at times along with a much better scouting and recruitment overall. The squad is in a much better shape than ever before needing a few tweaks in a couple of positions. But, his and the coaching staff's inexperience never looks like taking us to the next level to win some silverware.

VDB would be starting games if he was elsewhere, at least bring him on early and give him say 30 minutes every now and then to keep him sharp. Worried that Ole is going to ruin any sort of form and sharpness that VDB had before coming to United.

Ole keeps dropping players who play well in a previous match - one can understand if that is a player coming back from a long term injury, but seems hesitant to start them players even if fully fit over his favoured/ trusted ones who anyway don't seem to be doing well. It's almost like he is stubborn and trusts his first 11 far too much.

Let's see how far Ole can take us.


3.) 07 Jan 2021 07:14:47
If you have to coach and explain to the most expensive defender in the world that if the ball drops at your feet in the six yard box your clear your lines then we have bigger problems than I thought.


4.) 07 Jan 2021 08:11:15
jayo84 I agree but it is clear for everyone to see that these defensive mistakes have been happening throughout the season which points to lack of proper defensive coaching. There doesn't seem to be any sort of communication between the defenders nor any organized system at the back, looks like a bunch of individuals looking and expecting the others to clear the danger.


5.) 07 Jan 2021 09:02:38
We played and got beat by a city team that is playing well and currently probably a better team .
If we had of beat Brentford would it of been special because it was a semi .

Lets play - sorry should have said yes I agree with you on a the whole but I think you can't coach to iradacate individual errors. They are happening on a constant basis from the same culprits. There is no communication whatsoever between the back 5 but some of the individual errors is beyond a joke at this stage and I don't see it been coached out of the players from anyone. Basic positioning knowledge and know how should be a given with a defender but sadly its lacking in some of ours.

Telles should leave this window? What?

Shan you’ve been quiet on here recently and now we lose you’re back with some radical claims.

Let’s see how we do against Burnley and Liverpool.

It was certainly disappointing to lose another semi final there’s no hiding that, but we’ve been on a great run recently. If you’re going to get the knife out after every loss, you surely have to give credit when we go on such a run as we have recently.


8.) 07 Jan 2021 10:47:45
Jred isn't that the concept on competitive sport. You get to play the best and beat the best? Or just because it is City, so we have to let it go? Come on now.


9.) 07 Jan 2021 11:06:24
jayo84 when your defenders don't do even the basics right and that too on a constant basis then who's responsibility is it to correct them and it's not just Maguire/ Lindelof even Bissaka/ Shaw or whoever is playing fullback positions are caught out of positions time and again.

If they are so bad then what is it that Ole and the coaching staff do on the training ground that they still haven't cut out the mistakes.

What you do in training is really vital to your performances on the pitch and even the basic things need to be practiced on a regular basis so that you stay sharp and it becomes part of your instincts.

We are above city in the league so we are better. That was the narrative when we were 3rd last season.


11.) 07 Jan 2021 14:45:16
Knives Wazza? How come? How many games has van de bench played? What has Telles played? Being hooked off at half time in games to be replaced by a poorer shaw. I m not here criticizing the performance but there is no justifying another semi final loss. Wasnt Ole advocating 5 subs. Does he need them if he makes only 2.

Pathetic performance, brilliant win. End of story.

Now a question to jred given that he knows us ( the ole not being good enough United fans) so well that he knows we were disappointed by the victory.

So jred, there has been a common theme to all your posts from the day we lost to Palace on the first day of our season and that is "we finished 3rd last season". What you conveniently don't mention is that we had 66 points, the same as the season before which is fair because we achieved our target of top 4. Now hypothetically if let's say we get 75 points this season but end up 4th or 5th, would you be satisfied or disappointed? And more importantly, should we, the other side be happy or disappointed?

If the above hypothesis holds true then that means that we have improved our points tally by 9 points by winning more or losing less but that also means that a team or 2 who were stagnant last year have improved more than us.

So sir what i am really trying to understand is the goal post you keep mentioning that we keep shifting.

You and i could simply be 2 parallel lines pointing in the same direction but with different thought processes, we won't meet but at the end we all want the same.

Pathetic is harsh Shan. Nobody was more frustrated than me as those on the Live Chat will attest. I’ve posted below and answered a couple of other posts, including chiding jred but answer me this Shan, what is it you want? More points, tick. More goals, tick. Fewer losses, tick. Higher League position, tick. Fast flowing entertaining football, cross.

So, is it style that is the issue right now as everything else is gong in the right direction.

I’m genuinely not looking for an argument, just trying to understand what you need to see to make you happy.


2.) 30 Dec 2020 07:58:31
Top 4 has to be the goal every year regardless of the points you need. If we get 75 points but fail to get top 4, is that an improvement on last year, I wouldn't look at points to see if we have improved I would look at performances. We are still inconsistent, if this team didn't have Bruno we would struggle. Would another manager get this team to perform better, I think another manager would get this team to play as a team, rather than a bunch of individuals.

{Ed025's Note - i disagree GL, the aim should be to win the league every year for a club of united,s stature...you are not arsenal mate..


3.) 30 Dec 2020 08:06:27
3 games in 7 days and it was expected especially against Wolves, against whom we struggle often.

2nd in the league with a game in hand. Reached a semi-final.
I say it has been a good month for us.


4.) 30 Dec 2020 08:15:06
Ed25, we aren't at that stage yet. Winning the league has to be the end goal but we have seen 7 years of dross, just to get some consistency of finishing in the top four should be our next stage which sets us up to go for the league.

{Ed025's Note - you have to aim for the stars imo GL, this is man utd we are talking about mate and second best should not be the mentality to aim for, i think you have a good chance of the title this season and as a squad i would say you are stronger than liverpool certainly in depth..


5.) 30 Dec 2020 08:32:57
Performance cross as you say, Tony - isn't that what Jose was ridiculed for? So why is it that we need to sit and praise Ole when in reality the performances have been similar?

Having said that, at this stage of the season, i am happy with the win no matter how it comes. Yesterday was perfect for me because we won.

Improvement is a relative term, Tony. For me, last year was not an improvement, it was just paper over the cracks because i was comparing it to the season before. Same points so that meant that we were no better but others were poorer. We were simply better than the poorer teams. A man with one eye named king in a blind kingdom.

This season, we need to be better than the rest but also, be better than the Manchester United from last season. That is improvement, more points and higher league position. For me, this is the season when we can actually win it. I can't believe it i am saying it but yes, this is the season. Weird season so what best than this weird team winning it. Liverpool have half their team injured, City are struggling, Chelsea same, Spurs still lacking that winning mentality. If Ole gets us to play as one, a team, then there is no stopping us. But if we finish second to a team that is better than us, then i have no complaints as long as we give them a run for their money. Ole has been here 2 seasons and he should have that authority stamped.


6.) 30 Dec 2020 09:13:35
I don’t think Ole parks the bus, but the team are very inconsistent as are some of the players. Jose is just a mood hoover who will always put pragmatism first. Yes he’s a talented coach but his football is awful and he ostracises people.

I think a lot of our shared frustration is because we see some talent, we can see this is an odd season, and there are opportunities crying out to be taken. I got so frustrated last night, off the back of a good run, great performance against Leeds, good showing against Leicester, we looked flat. But then most teams are having a struggle right now so perhaps the wider issues.

I doubt Ole’s ability as a top line coach but there is clearly improvement this year from last year, the challenge is to make the dire performances the exception as opposed to very other game.


7.) 30 Dec 2020 12:10:02
I don't think either that Ole parked the bus yesterday. That was not the case. We hear very often in Joses press conference to say that he didn't said to his players to defend so deep. Its the mentality the problem. When you are not coached to play good proactive football but counterattacking then you will find a good organised team like Wolves who don't give you space for counter attacks and you will do nothing. We did nothing like Spurs did nothing.
We could then see how Liverpool play against such opponents and how they break them down and you will clearly see the difference. The other day i was really impressed how they played against the double bus of Mourinho and i disagree with Jose that the best team lost.


8.) 30 Dec 2020 12:18:01
Shan - you are talking from both sides of your . mate. This is the season we can actually win it! Did you think that was the case in September and October? And yet that has nothing to do with how the team is performing under Ole right now?
Ed25 - great sentiment but nobody has the right to be in the top 4 or in the title race. You got to earn it. I agree United should aim for that but that wasn’t and isn’t a realistic goal just yet. Dream it, sure.
Squad quality: with thesummer signings, there was more or less agreement that the squad isn’t good enough. Yet, now many players look better (like Fred) . Ole may have some role to play in that.

Shan - hope more of us get behind the team - who knows what will happen but try and enjoy the ride mate. After a last second win on a tired performance (not pathetic Andy for good reason) . even if Ole isn’t your idea of a United manager. should be easy to find some happiness.


9.) 30 Dec 2020 13:44:38
We saw again last night that there doesn't seem to be that urgency in the team as if they didn't realise 3 points would put us 2nd. Chelsea, Arsenal, City at home the same, we didn't seem up for it .

Last season Chelsea slipped up 11 times when they kicked off before us, it looked at one stage is was us or them for 4th - not once in those 11 games did we get maximum points - as with last night ok it worked out but to me that shows a mental frailty.

How much did Bruno cost jred? 100m or 200m? If price decided the quality of the player then Pogba would be the best midfielder in the world. Atleast make intelligent arguments to defend.

Is Ole your son in law jred that he can do no wrong?

Very unlike Shappy to kick a player when he 8s down. Romero now. Did he contact you that he is happy like that or do you want a player coming out in the press and creating a storm?

True GDS, there are lots of things i haven't heard like "we need to put 5 past Liverpool". You still haven't shown me that.

Jred yet again you side step the question.

{Ed025's Note - your right shan and it was very negative, for me you got exactly what you wanted and set up to nulify liverpool from the start, a big big chance to put them to the sword mate...and you blew it..
