can any regular watchers tell me how is Pogba's body language? Can he and Fernandes play together? Where do Utd need to strengthen?

Very good body language playing the game with a smile on his face again, early days yet but both have gelled together very well helped by the Matic sitting behind them in CDM role, Matic has been re-born since Bruno arrived.

Bench options are where United need to strengthen most, a few injuries to first choice players and things will quickly derail once more.

even as crap as Brighton were the other night, that Utd team coughed up some decent chances for Brighton the better teams put away.

There's still a bit of work in progress with this team.
A bit of progress has been made on the defence,  8 clean sheets in the last 13 PL games now more than United managed under Ole in the previous 40 games.

Can usually tell a how ropey a United defence is by the how busy DeGea is,  on Tuesday DeGea only had to make two saves all night and the the first came on 69 minutes from a long range shot from Connolly. By then United had rung the changes, Pogba, Bruno and Shaw all off and the latter while maybe not a long term first choice option played well.

The race for the final few Champions league spots has become very tight.




the way Leicester are playing I expect two from Utd/Wolves and Chelsea. Sky must be delighted. With the league being wrapped up so early they could not have scripted the last day of the season better in terms of Leicester/Utd and Chelsea/Wolves for the top four assuming they all stay in touch. West Ham/Villa could potentially be meaningful as well.

If Leicester's Goal difference was worse off Id say they would be more worried, 9 better off than Utd and if its down to the last game, their goal difference is like an extra point, its whether they lose other points along the way that would decide it.

 Think Chelsea will bounce back from that and Utd still have a few dodgy games in them despite their current form.

Wolves are the team of the season (bar Liverpool of course) and if they hadn't been chasing down Utd I'd be cheering them on
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Given United's run in and the way they are playing at the minute I would not be surprised if that goal difference differential  was more or less eliminated by the last game. I am a big fan of Wolves as well. Love the way they play and I think their midfield is outstanding. They will do well to keep the likes of Neves for next year.

Leicester definitely haven't benefited from the break whereas Utd have. Chelsea have a tough few games as well coming up.

Leicesters problems go way further back than the break, two wins since Christmas..  on the goal difference thing remember Leicester play United on the last day so theoretically anyway there could be a big swing that day. 

Not to slag off Wolves decent team, good manager and play nice football but they not shy in the money department in last few years. Sheffield Uniteds would be a much better achievement thus far

Leicester are on a shocking run, they've got 10 points from their last 11 league games; United only have 21 points in that time.

So what was the deal with Pogba? Was he really injured for all that time or was he just looking out?

Nothing to go on but my own opinion but yeah I think he was injured but he definitely expected to be on his way this summer. Utd also weren't that pushed that he would leave, his fee would at least part fund further reorganization at Utd.

Covid has now changed the landscape completely, is there a transfer out there for him? Possibly/probably will sign a new contract

Chelsea have a tough few games as well coming up.

On the evidence of tonight one of those so called tough games might be one of their easiest.
