Are United back again?? It keeps changing every week hard to keep up!


People are so reactionary. Fact is the side is decent and improving in several ways but wildly inconsistent. A bit like the teams I grew up watching in the mid 80's. Which isn't good enough to be honest. I'm not convinced sacking Ole and bringing in Pochettino is the answer. He has never won a trophy as a manger and in fact threw away a league to Leicester. Lots of people see him as the panacea for all ills but I wonder....Managing United is not like managing Spurs or Southampton.

Good to see Ole getting a bit thick after the game. No harm.....good to see the bit of fire from him. Yes I know all teams seem to get fcuked over with fixture arrangements by times, not just United, but it shouldn't happen. It doesn't happen in other European countries and it's especially crazy in the current circumstances where supporters don't have to be catered for. Despite everything United are actually in a better position in the league than this time last year. Need to string a few wins together though.

How did they throw away the league to Leicester? Thatís a bit of a myth doing the rounds about Poch that season. Leicester lost 1 of their last 20 matches. Spurs were never really in that title nor come close to throwing it away.

Lucky to the 3 points tonight given the penalty decisions. Although Utd did have plenty of changes to be ahead prior to that. Bruno is priceless at the minute. Involved in everything good that Utd do.

Goals are a serious problem for utd. Martial isnt clinical enough. Rashford either but he isnt playing a central striker role.  While  Sam Johnstone did make some good stops rasher and martial made them easier stops than a more clinical finisher would have. With the ? hanging over greenwood and the alleged charges against him surely Cavani should be looked at from the start. And although Mata won the penalty van de beek must start ahead of him. Pogba no loss.

Martial is a 5-0 type of player. Rarely produces when itís 0-0 or when his side are trailing. Iím fed up with his lazy ass style and mediocrity.

Rashford needs a Cantona-type partner. Heís basically been burdened with the goalscoring since 18 and he needs a mature, experienced link man. Kane is probably the nearest to that in the PL.

Pogba needs to go ASAP.

Rashford is equally inconsistent and as prone to mediocrity as Martial. One needs help the other needs getting rid of, stange.

Why do you assume he should be sacked?

Id say pogba is poison in that dressing room and utd definitely need a harry kane type player . United were very sliggish in midfield and we definitely need to up the tempo

Zlatan is as strong as a horse and has a great brain. Italian football is not what it was in the '90's so he can still knock a living there. To give you an idea of the standard of player AC Milan hire - Fabio Borini was signed from Sunderland in 2017.

United have had problems scoring goals for a few years now and it doesn't seem to be getting better.  None o the forwards that currently play regularly for United can hold the ball up, link the play or head a ball.

Ya and every time United (a club in transition with frugal owners and incompetent Executives) lose there are shouts for the manager to be sacked. Meanwhile City, with unlimited resources and structures are actually behind United in the table. Early days of course and a bit tongue in cheek but only a bit. I don't think Pep is as good as he's made out and I don't think Ole is as bad as some make him out.

Really tough watch on Saturday evening.

Seem to be a serious lack of ideas of how to break a team down, good to get the win but fearful of how it is going to turn out for Ole.

Needs a serious performance in the CL this week.
