    James Garner | Match Discussion thread 2019/20

    Turning into a Carrick/Scholes lovechild. :p He mentioned in an interview with Greenwood and Gomes at the end of last season that he wanted to add goals to his game and joked that he wanted to beat Greenwood for goals to which Greenwood replied that he was going to spend the summer working on...

    Daniel James | Match Discussion thread 2019/20

    The goal would have meant a hell of a lot to him after the rollercoaster ride he's been on this year. He was nowhere a year ago really, nearly moved to Leeds in January but once that fell through, his performances for Swansea went up a level, scored in just his 2nd international game and got a...

    Anthony Martial | Match Discussion thread 2019/20

    I've always felt Martial wanted to be a striker while Rashford wanted to be a Ronaldo type forward. As per Rooney and Ronaldo post-Ruud though, their positions were never fixed and I think that's what Ole is looking for over the next few years in attack. In Dan James and Greenwood he has 2...

    Harry Maguire | Match Discussion thread 2019/20

    He settled my nerves by giving me that sort of feeling Vidic used to give me, just never felt like he was going to get beaten, same with Wan-Bissaka. He'll head the ball away and be brave when looking to block but he also had a bit of Rio about him in composed defending, stayed on his feet and...

    Marcus Rashford | Match Discussion thread 2019/20

    Pogba, Martial and Rashford are all very good penalty takers, sharing it around keeps it fresh I think. Not sure who 4th and 5th choice would be but Lingard took the first in the shootout in Cardiff, James took the winning one, Mata has taken them at times. Think Maguire took a good one in the...

    Aidan Barlow

    As part of the new partnership between the 2 clubs, 14 year old Isak Hansen-Aaroen will join us when he turns 16.

    Ethan Laird

    Personally think he's got the potential to be better than both Dalot and Wan-Bissaka. A more all round full back than both. Had injury problems last season but has started this season excellently and it'd be great to include him on the bench at some point. Have seen him play very well at left back.

    Alexis Sanchez to Italy?

    For the style of play I think we're going to play, we're looking at: Right wing: Greenwood (James) #10: Lingard (Gomes) Left wing: Rashford (Chong) Centre forward: Martial (Sanchez) If we're not going to get him completely off the wage bill I don't see the point in letting Sanchez go and think...

    Manchester United U18s Fixtures 2019/20

    Under 18s as good and as dominant as the Under 23s were last night in a 3-0 win over Sunderland. Anthony Elanga, Connor Stanley and Reece Devine the standouts for me. New signing from Ajax, Dillon Hoogewerf came off the bench for his debut in second half.

    Alexis Sanchez to Italy?

    The talk is he'd be going out on loan and we'd still be paying most of his wages so I don't see the point in that really.

    Utd to resume hunt for Technical Director

    Even if we do appoint one I don't believe for a second that that they will be allowed to perform the role of a typical TD/DoF/whatever they'll call it. I can't see Woodward handing over even some of that control he has. I know people were upset we didn't bring more players in this summer but...

    Premier League: Manchester United vs Chelsea

    Really not sure what to expect from us, mainly because of the midfield. It's the sort of midfield that you either get a very good performance or a very bad one from. McTominay's done really well as a more advanced midfielder, i've not seen anything to suggest yet that he can play as the deeper...

    James Garner | Match Discussion thread 2019/20

    Reserves: West Bromwich Albion 0-5 Manchester United - 9th August 2019 Absolutely superb for the U23s tonight. 2 cracking goals, a 50 yard beaut of a diagonal pass to pre-assist the opener that Scholes would have been proud of and some very good defensive work that Carrick would have been proud...

    Bruno Fernandes

    Link never made sense to me really unless he would have been a Pogba replacement when we really need to replace Matic. It will be interesting to see whether the 4231 played in pre-season is continued. With only 5 midfielders I find it hard to believe we'll be playing regularly with 3 in...

    EFL Trophy 19/20

    Absolutely. I think his contract is out either at the end of this or next season so we need to give him game time to assure him he has a future here, otherwise he'll end up in Germany on a free like Sancho. He's only going to improve with games, he's a better option than Mata if we are to play a...
