    @CelticDevil I thought it was a joke at first when I heard about it, but it's not - it did actually happen

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 2018/19

    He really needs to freshen things up. Our performances have become stale - tonight was particularly disappointing, as I would have expected to see a reaction after losing last week. Some of it is down to us running on empty, but that's why we need to make changes.

    Paul Scholes

    Cynic in me thinks that "owner sticking his nose him" was a convenient excuse. He'll be back on BT in no time though, so he won't have to worry about what to do with some of his time.

    It's ok, he'll be back on BT in no time.

    Zinedine Zidane

    Strange that he's gone back so soon after leaving, particularly considering his record there. He's not going to do any better than he did the first time. Imagine if the opposite happens and it all ends badly!

    I thought he played well again. I certainly don't think it was a penalty, so he was unlucky. They probably play in different positions and so it wouldn't be a like for like replacement, but I'd be quite keen for him to take Matic's place in the team. I think we'd be a lot better.

    Nemanja Matic 2018/19

    I have to agree with the criticism of him. He did make a good start to his career here and had a good first half-season, but since then I think he's been a very disappointing signing. His best days are definitely behind him. Although he did initially improve a bit under Ole, I don't think his improvement was significant and I don't really see what he brings to the team that others couldn't. I think if we want to progess and change our style of play then we need someone more dynamic who will offer us a lot more.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 2018/19

    The unbeaten run was always going to come to an end, and considering how long it's gone on for it's no big deal. I think his gameplan was wrong at the start. Starting with a 4-4-2, particularly with Matic in midfield, meant we were completely overrun. When he changed the system we were a lot more comfortable and started to play a lot better, so hopefully that is a lesson learned.

    Romelu Lukaku 2018/19

    After looking like a shadow of himself for most of the season, he's certainly back on top form. He certainly has flaws, but I think people are too slow to recognise his strengths as well. The character and desire he shows can't be underestimated either.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 2018/19

    I have some sympathy for your opinion actually and do agree with a lot of it. I'm as delighted as anyone with the result against PSG, it was a magical night. Not only did I think we had no chance of winning the game, when I saw the matchday squad I was concerned we could be on the receiving end of a bad result. So we did show great character, and his tactical changes with Dalot worked well. At the same time, if we are honest, PSG threw away the tie. Based on their performances in both legs and their superior squad they should be going through. Two of our goals were mistakes from them. They were too arrogant and seemed to think they just had to turn up. However, the result itself just adds to the run of results that we've had under Ole and means that we just can't give the job to anyone else. We're a completely different team, and I don't think anyone saw any of this coming when Mourinho was sacked.

    Eric Bailly 2018/19

    He's the only player who doesn't get plaudits from the PSG game. It does seem a bit harsh since he's certainly not a RB, but him needing to be substituted due to injury ended up being a blessing for us. I would agree with others that he probably doesn't have a future here. He's got some good raw attributes, but the best you could say is that he hasn't developed at all since he came. In fact, he's probably regressed. And that's when he's even fit. I think it says a lot about his place in the pecking order that whenever I'm discussing our CBs I pretty much forget he's even here most of the time.

    UCL - Last 16 - PSG vs Man Utd (2nd leg)

    It was always going to be a hard task, but when you take a look at the travelling squad it looks like it could be a bad night. I didn't think we had a chance anyway, whichever team we were putting out, but at the same time you don't want to to see a weakened team on the receiving end of a big defeat. It wouldn't do much for confidence.

    Diogo Dalot

    It's an interesting one, because that's certainly one position that we don't have (m)any options for. If he is comfortable playing there, then he's got the chance to stake a claim for that position.

    Andreas Pereira - 2018/19

    I've only seen the highlights, but from them it did look like there were a few flashes of really good play from him. It was a fantastic strike as well. I certainly think there's a space for him in the squad with the chance of getting regular games, even if he doesn't make strongest 11.

    Romelu Lukaku 2018/19

    Only saw the highlights but the two goals were great finishes. It was good to see him get the two goals, because I do think his form has been gradually improving in recent weeks and he's been playing well. He definitely took his chance as the main striker last night with Rashford and Martial being out.
