Arsenal have a couple of clowns in defence and one even bigger clown in midfield but our forwards obviously arenít good enough to take advantage of it. Heart says 2-1 if Martial comes back but i think itíll be 1-3 Arsenal

Itís United so Iíll stay up to watch of course

I think Zaha is a good add to the team
if u r talking ex-players, all those we have let go in post-SAF era are better than our current crop. Depay, di Maria etc.

it's an institutional problem. every player/manager who comes in become worse. maguire AWB James will all become "average" in a couple of months

Our attackers will make clowns look like I.T scary and blood thirsty.

the honeymoon period where u still have energy and enthusiasm to be 120% will only last so long.
if the team keeps doing badly, it will sap away any positive energy they have and that's when they become 'average'

The question is, if our mgr consistently fails to motivate the players, is it the players' fault or the manager's?

SAF was able to make a bunch of average players + 1 or 2 arguably world class ones become a world beater team (more or less).

I think the run of bad results now should not be readily accepted just because OGS is rebuilding, the team is in a transition phase. The bad results will have a very bad impact on the team. Downward spiral, vicious cycle, very hard to pull out of.

wa this is beyond my pay-grade hahaha

could be as simple as getting 1 hard-carry. like how suarez transformed pool from mid table to top 4 team. (no one in mind that is available.)
and then fixing the puzzle with the right manager to get back into title chasing team.

also we need to separate the business and footballing. woodward should stop attending matches for a start. sick of seeing his face!

why 3 yrs?

coz by then half of pool 1st eleven most >30yo, start to decline.
and pep would have left city.

plan is not to improve, but wait for others to fall

Maybe you're on to something. What if he is the anti-hero with negative buffs affecting the whole team? Passing -10, dribbling -10, shooting -10, defending -10.

Actually Aubameyang is so old alr. United has Martial only 23 years old, Rashford only 21, Greenwood only 17.

The future is much brighter for united attackers.

Jesse Lingard played as a ''number 10'' against Rochdale last night.

-Least touches of any Man Utd player.
-Least passes of any Man Utd player.
-Phil Jones made more passes than him in 45 minutes.

There's no point to change manager anymore, been there done that. Ed decided to sack JM, who in my eyes is better than whoever available out there now and appointed Ole. He said he would support Ole. Let's hope he meant it, and we give Ole a few years to turn things around (hopefully).

In the meantime, bear with the results and accept it is not going to be good. When it's too hard to bear, go youtube watch CL Final 1999/2008 or our 8-2 win against Arsenal or 7-1 win against Roma to stroke our ego. Life goes on.
Pretty sure that wasnít what fans think about Mourinho.

Everybody in here wanted him to go.
