    PL Matchday 23: Man Utd vs Brighton

    First half was great. Second half, we were outplayed by Brighton! Who could quite easily have got a draw out of this match. Whether we thought it was won at halftime, or just relaxed and switched off too much, I don't know. But we were lucky to come away with all the points, when, had we played the same way as the first half could have had a comfortable 3 or 4 nil win. Don't understand why we give teams control and confidence when the jobs not fully done? If I was Ole I'd be demanding a new centre half NOW, because sooner or later our static defence will cost us points, and if we can continue winning, 4th place and the money it would bring in the Champions League would justify the transfer fee!

    PL Matchday 22: Spurs vs Man Utd

    Well, we didn't park the bus in front of goal.....just stuck De Gea there! Spurs hammered us second half but Pogba could still have scored 2 on another day. So Ole does what no other United manager has done! Total credit to him!

    PL Matchday 22: Spurs vs Man Utd

    I don't think we are anywhere near the standard of Spurs, which is a sad thing to have to admit when our lot are being paid loads more money than they are! Our defence is really weak, just as I read about Fosu-Mensah wanting a transfer as he cannot get in the Fulham team on loan. Shows how badly I understand football when I thought he had a great future ahead at our club. It's strange that the same defensive players that last year were so solid at the back have been as leaky as a colander this season. Anyway once the cb area is sorted out we should have a lot more solid Base to work from. The defense is the major worry in this game. We've been unable to keep the very weakest teams in the premiership from scoring against us so it's a certainty that Spurs will bag one or more past us. That said, maybe we can pull off a shock win.....but at the end of the day at least we will hopefully play attacking football against them and have tried to score rather than just park the team between them and our goal as VG and José would have!

    Ole: 'The best thing since sliced bread'.

    Ole has started out very well, but let's see how the rest of the season pans out. Arsenal away in the cup was a shitty draw considering what other teams we could have drawn. It would have been good for the board to buy the quality central defender we need in this transfer window, not write off the rest of this season and then look at it in summer, when it might take six months or so for him to settle in. Plus would show some confidence in Ole.

    FAC - 3rd Round - Man Utd vs Reading

    2 class moves won us this game but there was little else to appreciate from the players out there. Tottenham beat their opponents by 7 but this United team were well outperformed by Reading and never showed the commitment of late, It was like watching a José 11 all over again. Just hope it was a blip and not the start of the collapse of the Ole factor.

    FAC - 3rd Round - Man Utd vs Reading

    The Tottenham game will be an acid test. We will need to press high up the pitch and every player would have to play at their peak for us to win that one!

    FAC - 3rd Round - Man Utd vs Reading

    Regardless of what United 11 played, I didn't expect Reading to be having by far the lions share of possession. If their finishing wasn't so shit this game could have been very difficult.

    FAC - 3rd Round - Man Utd vs Reading

    Haven't we got anyone who can put a cross into the six yard box? Jesus, Reading are hammering on the door!

    FAC - 3rd Round - Man Utd vs Reading

    2 class moves 2 goals! But really we should be thrashing this opposition and controlling midfield which we're not. Reading have had lots more attacks than we've had. Still at 2 -0 you've got to get a couple of youngsters on, and see if their enthusiasm and pace can energise our game!

    PL Matchday 21: Newcastle vs Man Utd

    Passed that test. Some good displays tonight. Herrera put in a solid shift. Valencia was our worst player. Never got down the wing, maybe not fit? Can't fault 4 wins in 4 for Ole.

    PL Matchday 21: Newcastle vs Man Utd

    Need sone changes, Newcastle too comfortable at the moment....starting to look ordinary for the first time since Ole came in. Valencia may be captain but he's been shit in this game!

    PL Matchday 21: Newcastle vs Man Utd

    Hope the subs make a big differance in the second half cos we are not getting down the flanks and getting behind Newcastle enough. Maybe need something simple like a punt upfield like what nearly worked for Rashford. Not shooting enough, Pogba not being able to control things. If Newcastle can give us quite a few problems Spurs are going to be about 3 times more difficult to get anything out of.

    PL Matchday 20: Man Utd vs Bournemouth

    Rashford, Pogba, and Martial all playing well. Lingard working hard but not having the impact he is capable of. Should have been a comfortable win at 3 - 0 but absurd defence gave them a Christmas present of a goal. Our defence really is so poor. How did these same players have such a tight defence last year? Anyway, if we go out and get a 4th goal at the start of the second half it will be game over! The only major concern is when we play the top teams with our defending, may be needing 3 goals to stand a chance of winning.

    Great football in the first half but once again giving away a stupid easy goal!

    PL Matchday 20: Man Utd vs Bournemouth

    Bournemouth have been pretty poor of late, so they'll probably put in a blinding performance against us. That said, at home I'd expect us to win by a goal or two. If we can get an early goal and build on it, will be easier. I expect Bournemouth to score past us, everbody else does! Hope Martial is fit, as he looks to be our best goalscorer at present. Hope Lukrapa doesn't play, unless Ole can turn him back to the predator he once was. Hererra instead of Fred in midfield. And Young and Shaw in wingback positions. 8 points plus to make up for top four is going to need a near perfect second half to the season and I'm not sure we are solid enough to make that happen! But at least the football is much more positive now and loads more entertaining. If Mourinho had still been in charge it would have taken six games to score the 8 goals we've took in the last two games.
