  1. He scored a very nice goal against United but I have not seen him play many times. He plays on the left and cuts into the middle a lot and we have players that do that. We need somebody who can do that from the right. His crosses are weak and so is his tackling and he is not young as I thought. Does he even want to leave Villa ? He is a Brummie and he's been with Villa since he was 6 years old.
  2. I do not think so, but I dont do the hiring and firing, To me he has not shown he has the tactical nuance to break down sides that dont come out to play or to get players to play to their ability when we are not playing big clubs. Beating Spurs and City has given him breathing room and he will keep his job til near the end of the season if not longer. I suspect the board will give him the next two transfer windows to bring in the 4 or 5 top players we still need.
  3. That's the problem in a nutshell. Great performance today, but its frustrating that we don't show up for games against teams we should be expected to beat. Is it that Solsksjaer can not motivate the players to turn out week to week, or is it the players can only get up for top clubs.
  4. Solskjaer has to be on thin ice. It's got to be getting to a point where top players won't come to United. The papers have us favourites for Sancho and Haaland in January, but why would they come? I think if we lose the next two games and the Board is finding that our run of play is jeopardizing recruitment of top talent coming in this January, then Solskjear wont make it to Christmas. Make a deal with Ponchettino that covers any lose he will suffer if he signs and hope he can bring in some decent players in January.
  5. They should be talking to him, see if he is interested and can bring Kane with him.
  6. There was contact, but not a lot. It was a soft penalty. You feel contact now days and you go down. It's sad but its the way it is.
  7. I don't know who you are playing on Tuesday, but we are playing Wednesday. Think our line up will be a mixture, a number of the kids will play. Won't be a weakened line up, but some first team players will get a rest.
  8. Love Liverpol fans having a go at Atkinson. Many United fans see him as a Liverpool fan. He's given more yellow cards and and red cards to teams facing Liverpool and Liverpool have not lost in a game he has worked since 2015.
  9. That's the way it used to be, but the changed the rule. Any handball in the build up to the goal, waives the goal off. Not really a fan of the new rule but it is what it is.
  10. It hit his hand shouldn't count. Good call.
  11. To be on honest I thought it was a foul. Bit of a dive and he may have already lost the ball, but he was kicked.
  12. Quite a young bench United have today, Greenwood, Gomes, Chong and Tunazbe plus Jones and Fred. I know we have injuries, but you would think with all the money we spend, we would have more depth.
  13. I have often wondered why United get so many injuries. It seems to be going on for a decade or so. The times we used Carrick at CB or Jones or one of the Brazilian twins as a midfielder, not to mention Young as a fullback. Either our training methods are wrong or the pitch they play on or train on is inadequate.
  14. Thanks, so it should come down to who is in better form, providing neither has a knock. You seem to belive that it is Christensen.
  15. Add Wan Bissaka being doubtful and this will be awfully tough for United to get a result. Expect most United fans would settle for a point if it was on offer before kickoff.
