new signing or not, the target in the new season should be to better 2017-18.

If we can hit 90 points, it will be a good season, regardless where we end up on the table. Should be very do-able considering we lost more than 10points to brighton, WBA, etc.

matic 2nd season + fresh settled sanchez easily worth 10-15 points

it won't be a bad season if we ignore citeh

i didn't watch the games, but according to ESPN we used 3-5-2 against in the recent friendlies against RM, pool and milan.

perhaps it was more of a need than his intention due to player shortage.

pre-season gloom is good, makes us the dark horse.
the last time we soared in preseason under LVG, we crashed and burned during the season.
yes it was 3-5-2 for most of the friendly games. Mata with Alexis. those advocating for 352 most probably don't watch our games nowadays.

That should be our strongest back 4 at the moment barring anymore injuries. But I wouldn't be surprised if Smalling or Jones makes a cameo appearance.

Bailly was injured during the game and Smalling came on.
Smalling was injured earlier during the preseason and Bailly came on. They rotating to be injured

Maybe, his head might grow too big.. becoming too selfish and thinking ahead of himself..

Until we can be on par, at least on paper with the top teams, then we can say we exhausted all options. We refused to pay additional €5m for Perisic last season, so no, we didn't exhaust all options.

If the manager knows the team is not good enough, he tries to improve them, and also bring in better players. When he can't bring in better one, don't expect him to turn an average player to superb players. He can't go to cheat mode and start editing the stats okay.

End of the day, all I'm saying is support your manager. I don't believe even SAF or Pep can win the EPL with last season's team. #2 was not good, but was better since SAF days. We beaten all the top teams for the first time in seasons. He said judge him after 3rd season, hold your gun and don't shoot so fast.

Oh my God. I believe Man Utd has exhausted all those options you have stated. At this point realistically, it's not the players at fault

On your point though, it is also the manager's attitude/effort on AND off the field that will affect the team, as a whole.

Promotion for MR.
Since we can't choose we we can have realistically, I think we can always hope for the best. We have young players in every department that can play decently though not world class standard but it is proven that if a team can play as a unit, theres a shot at winning titles (Leicester).
I was not much of a Lingard fan initially but I think he deserves his chance, and he has been scoring some good goals.

Can't wait to get stuck in the couch every weekend again.

5mill Euro is not $5 leh. Perisic isn't even worth fussing over either.

Since we are comparing, SAF era had tons of average players turned superb just by the sound of the starting whistle, from David May to Fletcher to Macheda.

I will still give my full support of course but what I'm trying to say, it doesn't look too good, right?
