When is Shaw expected to be fit again? 

 

Young has been a good player for us, despite the mixed opinions of him, but I don't think he has much left to give. His defending involves using all his dirty tricks to make up for physical shortcomings, and going forward he seems to have lost his crossing ability. He hits those floaty inswinging crosses that Fellaini liked to attack, but we have nobody to attack them anymore. The way Williams played in his last couple of games, is he worth a go there?

tbh, i think Williams means we dont have to buy a new left back! but, he is still only 19, so probably not best to rush him into too much too early realy

I'm (wrongly) predicting 0-0 here.  Bournemouth finally have been told it's a good idea to keep the ball out of the back of the net, only to forget that they have to put it in at the other end as well!

I love Young, hes been with us for ages but its time for him to retire as he doesn't have what it takes anymore.

And the shite defending is on show in abundance!

 

 

Lindelof isn't that good is he? He was our best defender before Wan-Bissaka and Maguire, but now hes costing us goals. He doesn't tackled and hes lousy in the air.

Blessing in disguise that Ashley Young gets a ban, I hope we start with Brandon at LB and he has a good game. It was so frustrating that we pushed Young up and didn't just swap James & Rashford on the wing prior to James being subbed

Because, and I hate to say this, Ole is tactically bankrupt. Just look at both Liverpool and City to see how to close a game out after going behind. I know we haven’t got their squads, but fuck me, it’s like a free for all with us sometimes. The only time we seem to win is when our tactics luckily work. There doesn’t seem to be anything in place to counter a team that has us on the ropes.

This is a touch harsh.  His game isn't about winning loads of tackles or headers, it's about positioning, reading the game, making the correct decisions.  His problem is that he's switched from left-sided CB to right-sided with the arrival of Maguire, and he's really struggled to adapt. 

 

Today was always going to be a problem.  We are incapable of breaking down teams that don't come at us, so the games against Liverpool, Norwich, and Chelsea were tailor-made for us to paper over the cracks.  Three teams who will attack us and play into our hands.  Unfortunately, counter-attacking is all we have, so as soon as we play someone who sits deep, the same problems, which haven't gone away, are apparent again.  We have no creativity to unlock those defences, and not enough intensity to wear them down.  Pogba would help with the first part of that, of course, but teams know he's our only creative player so they just shut him down.  We need a better number ten than the three options (Pereria, Mata, Lingard) we have at the moment, and closer, smarter interpassing around the box.  It can be done with the players we have if they showed more ambition and invention in attack, but we're set up to run from deep and don't seem to have a plan when there's no space behind a defence.  The other thing you can do in those situations is have a big man up front and hit crosses, as we did with Fellaini, but that's hardly going to work with what we have at the moment, apart from if we push Maguire up there late in games.  We might have to start doing that.

I'm going to the game tomorrow. Never drove before.

Can I just turn up and some local company will have a spot to park in or does it need to be pre booked? I'll also arrive around 7:30 will I manage to get a spot then no problem? 

 

Thanks.

There’s loads of car parks around, but I’d recommend getting there early and parking as far away as you can handle, because it’s an absolute nightmare to get out of the place after a match. If anything, I’d be inclined to park in town and get the Metrolink up.
