    I knew nothing about the guy at all. I don't even remember that he played against Arsenal. Yeah Sancho is insane but we can't base everything on him

    The irish are furious - makes them look a right dick after that tweet they sent out a few months ago wishing him happy birthday or something. Great for England. We need to pray for a top class keeper in the next few years, Pickford is the best of a bad bunch imo.

    We got Dalot, Chong, Traore etc they seemed to have quite a following around Europe. Martial was probaby the most known one in recent years - nobody had ever hear of him before we signed him.

    Yeah it might help - i have no idea what the club want or this was something Jose wanted. Recruitment has to be alot better - but i guess there's still an element of luck. We have a good scouting network.

    I think so - at the moment he's just doing enough, he misses alot, but in 2/3 years time we could have a world class striker on our hands. I have no idea about a DoF, i think its best to let the manager pick who he needs - but maybe times have changed and we need some who can identify what the team needs objectively. I trust Ole, based on dropping/selling Fellaini and dropping Lukaku - he's only wants 'traditional' United players.. quick and direct. I'm pretty sure they care - i believe they want to see United on top again, i think they'll be big investment in the summer.

    I was actually happy with the back 4 and the 3 midfielders - i thought they weren't overly stretched or getting carved open, Mbappe had one burst through, but Lidelof did well to stop him progressing any further. The biggest problem for me was the front 3, Rashford couldn't hold up the ball, Martial was ineffective and Lingard's passing was not good enough. We got in some good counter attacking positions and just panicked and rushed when those 3 received the ball. Rashford was giving the ball away all night, to be fair to him Silva was outstanding.

    Yeah its a big European tie - let it go. To be honest i think no player for either side should have been sent off, the game should have had 2-3 yellows and that's it. But the Ref set the tone by being way too card happy in the first 15 mins and then wasn't consistent with actual fouls. obviously we still would have lost, but it made it a really stop/start petty game.

    Fucked after Lingard and Martial went off - was a pretty even contest at halftime. After that we lost all our intensity and speed, PSG deserved to win. Thought Shaw, Herrera and Matic had good games. Would have liked more consistency in the Referee, Kimpembe should have been sent off.

    I think they will now - he's put himself firmly in the driving seat - i think the honeymoon period has passed and even with setbacks he can go on a run again, the style of football is too good. Maybe with a DoF appointment, that person can take care of signings leaving Ole/Mike to manage the team. Seems clear from last summer that Woodward is happy to spend a shitload of money, but only on players who are real quality and under 30 (he said this in one of the conference calls) I think Sanchez will be one of the last 30yo signings unless a crazy deal comes along that is too good to turn down (i.e Alderweireld).

    I think your In's are probably more realistic than mine. Neves is the kind of player Ole would love to work with in this counter-attacking style.

    In Alderweireld (CB) - no brainer Koulibaly (CB) - no brainer. Sancho (RW) - one of the best young players i've seen in recent years. Milinkovic-Savic (CM) - long term replacement for Herrera/Matic Militao (RB) - him and Dalot would be good options at RB. Both young, quick and strong. I would also take a punt on Gerard Deulofeu (RW) - a player I've always liked. Good on the ball, always dangerous and pacey. We are so thin at RW that i think he would be a good option and not cost an excessive amount. Out Lukaku Rojo Jones Valencia Darmian McTominey (Loan) Mata What you thinking?

    yeah that would be devastating. i think he's a United fan too. Fair play Pep, fantastic football. The movement is incredible.

    Agree - we lose so much with Lukaku up top.

    Laporte has got to be one of the signings of the season - he looks world class.

    I still think Guendouzi is better - impressive again against City and Chelsea. He's playing like he's 29 not 19, unfortunately he's surrounded by average players around him in midfield and defence. Thought both teams were really poor going forward last night. Anderson reminds me of Nani sometimes, beats a bunch of players and does nothing with it. The second half West Ham were giving the ball away for fun, but Liverpool looked out of ideas. Fabianski was solid as a rock, he's been a good signing.

    They look a little burnt out to me - Klopp has a habit around this time of the season with his teams. I don't know what Klopp is moaning about, 2 key decisions went his way and nearly won him the game.

    Thought Sanchez did okay - nothing special but nothing bad too. Matic still constantly gives the ball away - stuck in that Jose slow pace football while everyone is playing one touch. Young and Bailly just dont fill me with confidence - although both were okay today, Pogba is on another level - such a beast on the ball. Good, tough win that.

    People don't like him for his style of football - i don't think its anything to do with personality or else Poch would be hated - he's the ultimate calm/nice guy. Playing 3 DM's at times is going to make you open for criticism. I think he's restricting that Leicester team. Today is a great day - Martial signs a new contract and Fellaini fucks off to China.

    I'd rather City win it. If Leicester got a decent manager they could be a real force - have a very good squad now.

    Nice comeback - yeah, some strange selections - Pereira had a shocker and Rashford was really poor. But that was pretty much a defeat until the last few minutes. City have bottled it.

    I'd prefer our youth players to be playing rather than being a cash cow - i think most teams would to be fair. You probably have more chance to play in the first team with United, Arsenal & Spurs - maybe Liverpool. No chance at Chelsea or City. No idea whether any of these will make it - but they look promising. Hard to believe Rashford is still only 21 and had 4 seasons under his belt. If Ole gets rid of Fellaini to China - i will absolutely adore the man.

    Him and Chong look very impressive - they need loans right now, they are too good. Also that kid we bought from PSG (last year i think), Troare plays like Pogba.

    Dear god West Ham. Where's Moyes when you need him!

    That was easy. How Arsenal let another top class player go for free again is astounding. Thought Ramsey was excellent.
