You could see in the last 20 mins that there is now compettion for most places, every ball was being chased down even at 3-nil. Players also getting back to ful fittness too, Utd now have decent squad depth for most positons. Focus now shifts to Sunday. Utd desperatley need to start clocking up points in the league. What team will OGS start with?

Result last night puts the club in a great position to qualify from the group. Two wins against the Turkish side would seal that.

The opportunity to rest players without concern for the final two group games would be a massive help, especially with everything so condensed this season. Play City in the league four days after the return game in Leipzig.

Very sad news. A legend of the club. Heard his brother in law Johnny Giles on Off the Ball last night and it was emotional stuff. He had a tough last few years but by all accounts a lovely person.

Another defeat for Man Utd.  Rashford is great man score when winning 3/4 nil and then goes missing in the tight games.

Rashford has been the difference in more tight/games for United than anybody else the past 3 years. Stupid statement.

A typical inconsistent United. 5-0 win midweek and today lose to Arsenal at home for the first time in 14 years. A poor game that had 0-0 written all over it from early on and probably would have finished 0-0 but for a silly penalty given away on 70 minutes.

In other news sad to hear Bobby Charlton has been diagnosed with dementia.

Pogba should be binned.  Poisonous figure. No shape to Utd team. Serious lack of width.

Domestic weekend games are tough after midweek champions League games. You need a solid squad. Arsenal have been 100% focused on this game since last weekend. Utd have been 100% focused since Wednesday!

United were abysmal yesterday, far too much talk about Arsenal though who failed to create anything of note against a shambolic United. We treated them like they were Bayern Munich, an absolutely gutless display from start to finish.

I've defended Ole to the hilt so far but rightly so deserves a lot of stick for that yesterday, mentioned after Wednesday night we struggled for long periods to put a move together and the theme continued. Formation didn't work yesterday and should have been changed at half time but wasn't and couldn't believe he failed to change it at all, subs didn't work at all.

I've got no issue with him changing formation in Europe but he's can't do it in the league, never make any progress by messing about it with every week. Its going to cost him his job as will having faith in Pogba, he's 27 and not going to change. Every game there's an incident of him switching off or getting caught in the middle of the pitch when in possession, he's out of contract in 18 months and isn't an integral part of this time so needs to be dropped.

I wasn't paying 100% attention to the match as I was doing something else at the same time, but pretty sure Gary Neville said in commentary that Ole did change tactics for the second half, which led to a much improved 3rd quarter (albeit Arsenal re-asserted their authority after that).

Yeah he went from the diamond to a 4-2-3-1 which did beef up the midfield slightly but still had no real impact.

Another shocking performance and I see the have got Poch on Sky this evening. So with his profile being raised again I can see the pressure start to mount even further on Ole.
