    He was decent, but still you can't really rely on him. The guy is so far from the player he was when we signed him. I think he'll go back to Smalling partnering with someone. Hopefully yesterday was a one-off and the players can make up for it. Brighton were fucking brilliant though.

    i don't think its anything like that. I just think he's lost faith/trust in many of his players (just as most fans do) the CB's and Luke Shaw/Martial cannot be trusted. Our defence is loaded with individual errors - not one of them can be trusted.

    Gary Neville said something like: All 5 of Man Utd's center backs are reckless and lunge in when they don't need to". He's exactly right. It's time to bring someone like Rio in to teach these guys - they haven't got a clue.

    Man that team on paper shouldn't be blowing them away. Barely any chances created in 90mins. Absolutely disgusting. The players should be ashamed of themselves, zero effort and nobody taking responsibility. I hope Jose sticks it to them fuckers.

    That kid in Arsenal's midfield is a star.

    Just join it, its only one game in - a couple of matches picking up points and you can recover pretty quick.

    I saw someone in another league that triple captained Luke Shaw. He got like 33pts, but why the fuk would you think to do that in the first place?

    That was the highest score for one gameweek i've ever seen from someone im in a league with. Made the mistake of making Sanchez my captain, he was shite.

    Him and Martial need to work on their decision making - both hesitate too much when they get themselves into good positions. Ability wise - they are not much different to someone like Mbappe, but he has vastly superior finishing/decision making. I don't know if both Rashford/Martial will correct these issues this season - it seems to be the same thing every match but expecting different results. I fear for Arsenal this season, they look even weaker and nervous than last season - that 19 year in midfield was incredible for them though. Expected that from Liverpool, West Ham will be in real trouble if they persist with that high line. The worst tactics possible against that kind of opposition.

    Thats fucked up. I couldn't believe Fernandez was sold for that little. Anyway, love this Pogba, Pereira, Fred midfield. Pereira is the real deal - so dynamic and confident.

    Just seems to be they couldn't get the players Jose wanted (we don't know why) but looks like they won't be held to ransom. From the players inside the camp - they seem to love the guy. Everything else is crazy speculation to sell papers. We're seeing wild stories that contradict themselves within the same day - this only happens on a huge scale with United. Now doubt, he's pissy about his players that have come back late from WC. He's needs to shut up and get on with it. Like you said yourself - the modern footballer is different now, they have to be treated like children in many ways, they wouldn't last under Fergie. You know i am allowed to challenge your opinion, this is what this place is for after-all. But it does seem to be the same regurgitated stuff every single time - when in reality we've actually had a decent few years compared to before Jose, but its like we're been relegated listening to you sometimes.

    EVERY single thing the guy does... you have to pick out the negative. We were 2nd in the league last season - get a grip. 3rd season syndrome is an absolute myth - as many people have clarified, but you seem hellbent on believing it. Obsessive is accurate i think. I don't agree with some of his choices (some of these are on the previous pages) but he's won a few trophies and took us to 2nd so far ... its not perfect, i get that, but its not the disaster you make it out to be sometimes. Jumping from, not promoting youth, to board lost faith, players falling out, left behind by other managers etc... you've every excuse under the sun on here. Reality is, we've at least won things and performed well in the league for the first time in years. You answered your own question, he's older - much calmer and mellow. It happens to everyone - even Fergie massively toned it down as he grew older. It's possible the wheels could come off this season, Fred could be shit, Pogba at 50% and Sanchez still under-performing etc - but there's also the possibility that with a few adjustments we could really push on from last season. I've said repeatedly on here - other clubs haven't had a a good transfer window either - Chelsea has just lost one of their best players ffs. Yet it always comes back to Jose. We still have a damn good side - the best squad in the league along with City imo.

    Boy, Jose really got you butthurt or something. It's kinda weird/obsessive how you are always hating on the guy.

    Its literally the last position we need strengthening. I get none of them are world class, but all of them are still good defenders. So whats the point?
