  1. Leicester and chelsea within reach and you'd have to fancy our chances of clinching fourth as things stand.
  2. We've seen flashes of good stuff from him but overall his performances at the moment are no where near up to united standards.
  3. That was possibly the most complete performance I've seen from him so far.
  4. Some very good performances amidst some very poor ones. Williams has to start ahead of shaw from now on.
  5. Williams done more positive in ten minutes than shaw has this season
  6. Hard to know what his strengths are. He's a fairly run of the mill defender. Going forward you never see him make a telling pass, cross or shot. He's basically had an easy ride because we've had to invest in more important parts of the team in recent years. Looking ahead we really would benefit from a quality left back.
  7. Downloaded football manager on android. In december already and managed to take united up to first although city and liverpool still to come. Sold shaw, jones and ended ighalos loan. Bought a brazilian wing back, young swedish striker with good heading, an italian winger and a 17 year old from ajax.

    When?

    Its sad that we're probably only a few signings and the right manager away from a decent season. However you can't see it happening. We're stuck in a kind of rut. Really similar to where liverpool were in the 90s. Almost suffering from the weight of their history.
  9. So the unthinkable has finally come to pass.
  10. De gea - Shaw 4 Awb 6 Maguire 5 Lindelof 6 Matic 8 Pogba 7 Bruno 7 Rashford 4 Martial 9 Greenwood 6
  11. The second put the gloss on what was a pretty woeful first half. We need a lot better than this if were to make up ground on the teams above us.
  12. I think this is what has been holding us back since fergie. Barring one decent season under mourinho, which was still a letdown for certain fans, we have hovered around 4th 5th playing a very conservative low risk style of football. In the late 80s early 90s we had the reputation as an attacking side. You felt like on our day we could beat anyone. We were prone to the odd embarrassment as well but once we tightened up certain areas of the squad that brand of attacking play brought long term success. Solskjaer is steadying the ship at best but i can't see him taking us forward.
