    Louis van Gaal on his sacking, his legacy and life in retirement

    The Cup win aside, on the pitch was the worst football i've seen us play. Unbelievably boring. He had 2 good spells , Spring 2015 and Spring 2016. The first was when he stumbled upon the 4-1-4-1 formation with Carrick holding, Fellaini pairing up with Young on the left and Herrera pairing up...

    David De Gea | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    What's happening with De Gea right now is something I feared and one of the reasons why I don't think he'll be worth the wages he's asking for. With an improved defence he won't face the high number of shots he usually does and his concentration won't be as good. And with a reduced number of...

    Fred | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    I thought he was probably our best player on Sunday. He had a poor minute where he made the wrong decision at one end of the pitch and then conceded a penalty (which wasn't).

    Marcus Rashford | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    With Martial and Lingard back, I think we must rest him this weekend and hopefully Southgate will manage his workload too. Has needed a rest for a while, his work rate since Ole came in has he been immense but hasn't been able to do that as much since that injury and the rest of his game is...


    Would be another Sanchez. Need to bring players in that are hungry to win trophies not aging Real Madrid cast-offs that have won 4 Champions League titles, they have no motivation left those players. Van Persie was at the wrong end of his career but his desperation to win a league title made him...

    Diogo Dalot | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    Currently our best option if we're to play a right winger, most games under Ole, we've used 2 strikers with a false 9/attacking midfielder splitting the 2 strikers so the 2 strikers have run the wide channels but in a proper 433 he's our best option to play that right side right now. Probably...

    Champions League Quarter Final Draw 2018/19

    I think Liverpool, City and Atletico are the toughest tests left in the competition, over 2 legs, Atletico are a nightmare, the other 2 I think we can get past. Obviously Barca have Messi and are top of La Liga, I wouldn't fear them like I would have in the past. Bayern is always a tough place...

    Diogo Dalot | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    Has added a lot in his last 2 introductions from the bench. The way he skipped past Bernat that time was fantastic, he's got a magnificent cross on him, the best we've had for a while I think.

    Eric Bailly | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    Played out of position and the whole right side was a disaster first 30 but the goal had nothing to do with him playing out right, just pure poor defending, it's nothing new from him to be honest, like his style but there are some pretty big flaws to iron out. Assuming Rojo is going. Bailly is...

    Scott McTominay | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    Personally can't remember a bad game, been some average ones but can't recall "a stinker". Solid, hard working & consistent player who seems to relish the big games.

    Romelu Lukaku | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    One of the biggest criticism's he's faced in the past is that he doesn't score in big games or important goals, doesn't score winners, often scores in big wins and not often the first scorer in games. He's changed that in the last 3 games. Still has some pretty big weaknesses, find the more he...

    Fred | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    Thought he was excellent. Stopped attacks and got us going forward through bringing the ball forward himself or playing a pass forward. 7 out of 7 long balls. Loved his celebrations after the winner too. Finally his name doesn't seem as out of place as it was before, in the chant. Lets hope it...

    OGS on Sanchez injury: "Might be knee ligaments."

    Conveniently back in time for the Copa America where he'll play brilliantly which will hopefully find us a buyer.

    Jadon Sancho

    I agree, at this stage of his career, he's probably better off staying at Dortmund. Still very young and is playing regularly and playing well. Unless he wants to return to England then I can't see a reason for him to move. I'd absolutely love him to come to us though, he'd add a proper right...

    Romelu Lukaku | Match Discussion thread 2018/19

    Would he want to be just a part of the squad though. I think if a big Euro club came along with something near what we paid for him and wanted him as first choice, he'd happily move and we wouldn't stand in his way.
