you have added 3 good players to a squad that came 2nd last year and still have the best gk in the world, your net spend in the past 5 years is higher than anyone other than city.

 

pipe down and stop complaining. spurs for example have come t4 for three years in a row and the only player they have any possibility of signing is jack grealish lmfao

Oh Fuck off we signed an injured youngster who wont be first team material for a few years and has played some 7 professional games for Porto, and a fourth choice goalkeeper who will barely even get a kick. Only Fred was what we needed. Woodward should back the fucking manager, if he did we'd have Perisic marauding down the wing instead of fucking Juan "the snail" Mata who has no pace nor productivity anymore. Or a Jesse Lingard who can't play wide and reinvented himself as an attacking midfielder anyway.

 

I don't care if Spurs don't get nobody because they are Spurs, failure is in their DNA. We're Manchester United, our standards are infinitely higher than theirs.

that "youngster" has looked awesome when he has played, fyi. 

 

youve got the most expensive first 11 in the PL (or if not the 2nd most expensive) and have just added a £50million midfielder to that. 

 

mourinho 3rd season syndrome is gonna kick in thoguh i expect, excuses have already started

Man Utd don't need a centre-back, their problem is going forward. They conceded one more goal than Man City last season but scored 36 less. Maybe Jose is sending rumors around to protect the likes of Sanchez, Pogba and Rashford who need to perform better.

Ole is a TERRIBLE manager and you would have been MUCH better sticking with Mou till end of the year, lmao.

He has won three league titles in Norway (or so I'm told). Yes, the competition is weak by so is his own team by that metric. He has come a long way since his time at Cardiff (in which the situation he walked into as his first job was terrible, a bad team and the club being in a mess overall).

 

My understanding from what I have read is that he likes to play a high line, high press, counter pressing (although not as intensely as Klopp's Liverpool did last season and the year before) with 3 midfielders (alternating between two #8's or pushing ome up to play as a #10). Attacking football inspired by his time with Fergie, and with a somewhat possession based philosophy (he has said he is inspired by Pep Guardiola in the past).

 

For me, the only thing left to play for is the FA Cup, we have no chamce in the rest of the competitions. I would like for him to mainly try to unite the team again, and play exciting attacking football. We have had boring slow football from Moyes, LvG and Mourinho so we need something to bring excitement back to the fans. I don't expect us to tear up trees because this is a huge step up from the Norweigan league but if he can set us up nicely for the next manager and get us through the season I will take it. Hopefully afterwards Pochettino can come in and take us to the next level.

 

If we had stuck with Mourinho we would have finished tenth.

i mean you trashed cardiff which was pretty impressive

however dont forget cardiff fucking suck hahaha. still - the way you played was scary good

 

i really think you should get zidane instead of paying a over 30m for poch - though i think poch is better out of the two i think zidane as a free agent is still a brilliant option

i had a massive argument with my first as he said a couple of weeks ago its a one horse race (city)

so fuck him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyway, on title race; its extremely tight. I think the city game this january will actually be pivotal on how this goes. 

 

On city's side is experience and their squad depth. 

On our side is the fact we're grinding out ridiculous results despite playing poorly, we easily have 2 more gears. Against us is the fact we have no backups to VVD or Alison. Also the worry we might actually just start getting punished for our poor performances. 

 

Also I don't think its too far to say James Milner is world class in regards to being a utility man. I cannot name ANY player in the world who can play at a top-class level at RB, LB, CMF, AMF, DMF but he can do it and I think an injury to him would be difficult. 

 

Hopefully Ox will be back for the latter part of this season and help further boost us.

Now on United...

 

I think they're a shambles. Sacking Mourinho was the right decision. Ole is basically just someone they can fire at any point in time regardless of how well he does given his poor CV which allows them to now forward plan and slowly assemble the backroom staff and framework they need for their next big manager. 

 

Poch seems like the very very obvious option. I think he'll be great. If United can get him for 30M its a no brainer. However I think Spurs will want a lot more for him and make it very difficult to get him. If I was Poch, I wouldn't want to move to United. Given how good hes been at Spurs, he's basically waiting for the Bayern, Barcelona or Real Madrid job. I'd easily wait it out if I was him. Also Spur's squad is clearly better than United's. I'd negotiate a big wage rise and a healthy transfer budget for next year, then potentially move on to a much bigger club in a season or two.

 

Zidane as an option for United is interesting. I think he'd be a good shout. You don't win the champions league 3 times in a row without being very special. However, he has no record in building a team and squad together, and some of his youth choices at Madrid were questionable. Poch would probably be a bit safer in that regard. 

 

Regardless of who they choose, its going to be an uphill battle for United. Their squad needs sorting. Their best bet is to concentrate on sacrificing the next 1-3 years towards Martial and Rashford's development. They're both probably a season behind where they should be.. as they have the quality to be at the Sane/Sterling level of performances but sadly they've been messed about for a couple of seasons. Big question marks remain over Pogba. If someone came in for him, I'd personally sell him. Hes not worth the hype, wages or price tag; and hes proven to be a poison in the dressing room when the going gets tough.

 

United reminds me a lot of Liverpool 3 seasons ago. We had Clyne-Lovren-Matip-Milner as our defence; so a non-defender playing LB, 2 shaky CBs and no dedicated leader in defence. Upfront they probably need to make a decision on whether they sell Lukaku or not. I'm not sure if he fits in and hes showed a high level of mental weakness when the going gets tough. He says all the right things but hes a confidence player and I think United could do with more grit and determination upfront. A bit like our situation with Benteke, albiet he infinitley better than Benteke. They probably need to sort out the Sanchez issue too. I just think Martial and Rashford are too good to be played out of position and I think outside, there are better options than them [especially Rashford].

In terms of Ole,  if he has a good season and challenges strongly for top 4, I'd edge towards keeping him. His managerial record is dreadful but hes managed dreadful teams and players. I think bringing back the feel good factor to United for the next 18 months might actually trump the need to constantly hunt trophies with short term solutions. I think the fans would also be much for leniant towards Ole giving youth a chance and not getting immediate success than someone else.

Imo Solskjærs record isn't dreadful his first job was taking over a Cardiff side in an absolute state. From what I've read the club was a mess at the time. So yes he got relegated but that shouldn't have been his first job anyway, nobody should start off in the PL. When he went to Molde he helped them develop a playing identity and win several league titles with them. I saw someone say Molde winning their league is like Everton winning the PL in terms of the status of the two clubs relative to their domestic competition. He had a bad start but has come into his own as a manager.

 

I would still probably go for Pochettino unless we get top 4 (which I think we wont) but you guys are being super harsh on him, maybe because you both support Liverpool. The Norweigan league competition may not be great, but neither are his own players at Molde. It's just that I wouldn't risk missing out on Poch unless the next 6 months are completely unreal because he's a modern world class manager who ticks virtually every box in terms of what we need. But I think Ole will do us proud even if he doesn't get offerred the job at the end of the season. If he can entertain the fans for the remainder of the season by playing the "United Way" I wont kick up a fuss at him when we lose games.

City's strength in depth is good but the one key position they need to add a backup to in DM. They have looked vulnerable when Fernandihno is injured and Palace exposed them. On top of that Mendy is more injury prone than Abou Diaby so they may just end up signing a new le back in the summer. And probably spend £80m on Frenkie de Jong who is supposedly the next big deep laying playmaker who currently plays for Ajax.

 

I feel Liverpool are a major threat not only domestically but also in Europe. Bayern are a right mess under Niko Kovac and you will beat them imo. I would rather City win the league than Liverpool but Idk what's worse in Europe, Liverpool adding a sixth or City establishing themselves as a force with their first European title. Either is a nightmare scenario so lets hope Barca get their act together.

I think the idea United get Pochettino without being bent over by Daniel Levy is idealistic at best.

 

 

At worst Levy just doesn't let Poch leave

Is there anything Levy can actually do if we Pochettino resigns in the summer and we give him the £40m or so to pay off his contract?

I'm not buying this Fernandinho is god thing. They have enough cover and enough players to still beat teams. 

I think its moreso that the form Liverpool & City [until the last 2 weeks] was quite honestly FREAKISH. Like you shouldn't have as many points as these two teams do have.

City have just been the first to drop off and waver on this crazy run they've had. 

 

Its bound to come and looking at their fixtures in the latter half of December, it could and has happened. Their January is looking very easy after they play us. 

 

7 points clear at the top and we're now equal on goal difference. I think our lack of experience in a title race is very worrying and the fact we are very very dependent on Allision and VVD. Other than that, I'm fairly confident because of the good old saying  from SAF "Attack wins you games, Defence wins you titles" and our defence speaks for itself whilst I feel City's is good but not as good as ours.

 

In the Champions League, I hope we progress. In theory we should do, but Bayern have a huge amount of pedigree and this is our first season contesting strongly on MULTIPLE fronts, which will be a lot of the boys to take in.

Paying out an employment contract isn't necessarily legal in all cases.

 

 

If that was true clubs could just pay out 4 years of a player's wages whenever in order to get a transfer.  Realistically this never happens.  The details of Poch's contract are something I would only trust when his agent leaks it to the Times or the Telegraph, as commonly happens, and not before.  Until then Poch's 5 year expensive contract is a black box that can't be opened, and nobody can predict the contents

Fucking hell tommorow is gonna be intense. 

 

I have a feeling City will win it sadly but my mind tells me we should draw or win it. 

 

On paper, we're unbeaten, we have an awesome defence so we shouldn't concede a lot, and our attack is bound to score. 

 

However, we're playing away; its make-or-break for City, and we're bottlers for all intents and purposes. Also they have their full strength XI out which sucks.

yeah absolutely brutal game ahead - i'm genuinely quite worried

however - if we win then i struggle to see how they spring back considering the remaining fixtures

 

in midfield the selection is crucial as well - henderson or fabinho? shaqiri or milner? for me the only guaranteed starter should be wijnaldum in our midfield
