Pogba makes a huge difference to United, we didn't see the best of him last season but he started this season in great form and he's been a huge loss. Once he sorts out his defensive deficiency's United will have one of the worlds best players, he just switches off the odd time and fails to track a run which can be worked on.

Going forward though he's capable of scoring a lot more goals but what surprises me most about him is his creativity, he can easily beat a man as we saw on Saturday and has great vision in and around the area for a man of his size. Lets hope he stays fit.

Would ticket sales have covered the cost of the fee required to host the world cup?

Another world cup in France, very uninspiring.

I haven't a clue how many qualified coaches their are in the country would imagine there isn't enough with funding been the major issue.

Very odd tactics from MON, from very early on you could see the Danes had far too much space in the final 3rd. Ireland committed far too many players forwards towards the press and it left space all over the pitch. The first goal was a huge blow but it was inevitable anyway given the way Ireland had set up. I'm just amazed Ireland set up like that, it played into their hands as they had the only top class player on the pitch and he caused havoc.

Ireland have no quality in the final 3rd, none at all. Even Iceland have Sigurdson, Ireland don't have a player anyway hear his level and until that changes its going to be extremely difficult to qualify for a world cup.

We have a team of average premiership players at best with several of them not any better than players who play in the top half of the championship.

Shane Walsh is such a frustrating player to watch. So much ability but decision making and composure at times let him down.

Ability wise not to many players possess the skills he has but I agree his decision making does let him down although the biggest issue I have with him is the way he drifts out of games.

3 years isn't long enough but I have no issues with a player becoming eligible after spending 5 years in a country. They'd have more association with a country with a lad who has an Irish grandparent but has never been to the country.

How long did Aki & Stander have to live in Ireland before they were eligible?

Corofin will need to improve if their to go all the way although as pointed out they may well not be at their peak yet, only time will tell.

The ref was poor, several of those frees for Brigids were extremely soft and some were just simply not even close to been fouls. Corofin will be disappointed not to have closed out the game when 5 points up and cruising but you have you to give Brigids credit for coming back when they looked out of it.

The 1st test is on between 5am and 7am on rte 2. Surely to buck they could have played it earlier or later in Australia to accommodate the Irish viewers, and not slap bang in the middle of night?

I wouldn't be hugely interested in the series but for the GAA to agree to that time is comical or perhaps its their way of phasing it out when quoting poor viewing figures next time round.

Considering their offering to give you a 1 year deal at 3.0% then 3.3% for a 10 year fix is a great deal.

There obvious comes a time when a mangers time is up seanie but its clearly not now. United are easily in the best place they've been since Fergie left, lets see what happens this season before writing Mourinho's obituary.

United can't pull the same stunts that City do when it comes to players so Mourinho couldn't come in and buy and sell as many players as Pep has done over the road.

This discussion is interesting. Jon Champion suggesting what I was ridiculed for suggesting here over a year ago. Record against the top 6 away is a joke. Won League Cup and Europa because in reality United played no one in those competitions.

http://www.espn.co.uk/football/club/manchester-united/360/video/3262150


United played City, Spurs & Arsenal at the back end of last season when United had begun to the chances of finishing top 4 had already gone. That top 6 record is taken way out of context. People have very short memories, was only a few years since Mourinho won the league. United are in 2nd place, will qualify as group winners in their CL group and in the next round of the League cup. Its hardly been a dreadful start to the season.

Its ridiculous to be writing Mourinho off, winning 2 trophies was a good start and lets see what happens in the next 18 months.

The Glazers as ever get let off, no mention of them at all in the media. This whole mess all started with their under investment after Ronaldo left and wasn't replaced. The rebuilding process is still ongoing given how many average players were bought in the 3 summers after Fergie left.

The Glazers had to pay the debt they loaded on the club at that point .

Yep, unfortunately there's plenty of reds who are completely blind to what went on back then.

Fergie isn't completely exonerated either, Moyes was solely his decision.


Bullshit! He was not the decision maker, the board listened to him but he did not make the decision.

Hardly, they placed all their faith in Fergie to pick the manager and he got it very wrong. He'll have no input again after that.
