Re: OGS.....

But look how far Neymar has taken it and yet PSG aren’t giving him away. Coutinho and Hazard both went for 100m+ with a year left on their contracts.

I’m not desperate to keep him if he doesn’t want to be here, but I can’t see the sense in handing another club a bargain.

Re: OGS.....

After Maguire, what would Leicester demand for Maddison. What would Alli cost? No sense making a loss when you’re downgrading. We’re under no pressure with his contract and the only person who wants him at Madrid is Zidane and who knows how long he’ll last. United don’t want to sell so if no one wan...

Re: vs Palace

Wolves are a fair bit better than Palace, so we should be winning this comfortably. If we don’t get more from Lingard/Pereira/James etc against this lot, the plan should change. Probably a good time to give Greenwood a start.

Re: OGS.....

Youngest starting xi two weeks running and football is quite good all things considered. Don’t think I’d sack Solskjaer if we don’t qualify for the CL this season.

Re: vs Wolves

The decision not to sign a midfielder is looking like madness right now. We ought to be able to put someone on who'll put their foot on the ball in midfield, move Pogba forward and take James off. Pereira should get a chance playing deeper. He’s a decent passer and he’ll put in more of a shift than...

Re: vs Wolves

Set pieces have been shite for ages. That’s not all on Solskjaer. But the late subs when things obviously aren’t working really piss me off. Wolves have a really solid defence so it was always going to be tough to break them down but we made it hard for ourselves too. Pogba’s too deep considering th...

Re: Pogba Confirmed

If we're going to keep Pogba for one more season then Ed & Ole better get their shit together and start looking for suitable replacements now. It can't be another reactionary deal for whoever's available next summer or whatever big name comes up. It needs properly scouting. It might even require re...

...and why didn't we step in for Rodrigues when Bayern let the buy option lapse?
They offered us 25m and James for Pogba. Pisstake for a player they can’t get rid off.

He’s a great player, but doesn’t exactly fit the high energy/ no short term fixes thing we’re going for.

Re: OGS.....

We hardly ever countered under Mourinho. It was one of the most obvious changes after Ole took over. Ole played how Mourinho was supposed to, but never did.

Re: v chelsea

Pogba was actually crap for 90% of the game but did some magic for 10%. The problem we have is the other midfielders can't do anything even if they have good games so Pogba is essential for now. Pererra got an assist and did more during the game than Pogba. Pereira completed 11 passes the whole gam...
