    Wonder if Matic is a late arrival or actually isn't in the squad?

    The idea is that he’d get £50 for every good touch, but then something on top of that if ALL of his touches are good. Like an extra-special reward.

    I know he's going to start Young at LB since Shaw isn't there but I really wish he'd go Tuanzebe or Williams or even **** Red Card Rojo

    Doesn’t matter who our LB is, Salah never runs up at OT anyway :trollface:

    When will people learn, if you really want to say stuff like this, don't do it before the match, the backfire potential is enormous ffs :sweat_smile:

    Tbf, Young always turns up, defensively, against Salah, so if there’s any member of your team I wouldn’t wanna see playing LB tomorrow, it’s him.

    Do you believe Salah is thinking about a move to Spain? He has been poor this season by his standards, his heart doesn't seem to be in it, maybe he is being bullied by Mane?

    What are his standards? He has 4 goals and 3 assists in 8 games, which is a total of 7 goal contributions.

    In 2017/18, he had 6 goal contributions in his first 8 games.

    In 2018/19, he had 5.

    So, statistically, this has actually been his best start.

    United could fall as far as 16th in the table after tomorrow’s match. And 1 pt out of the relegation zone. Yikes.

    Or rise as high as 7th

    League is very compact right now.

    Apparently Dave has rejoined the squad and fancies himself for tomorrow.

    Barça don’t have room for them and Real are a shambles.

    9 games is nearly a quarter of the season. Your sample size excuse is running out of time.

    We have always said wait till around Christmas. If it’s really bad, the next international break.

    I can't stress enough that sacking Ole would be a massive mistake. It also condraticts the message we've been trying to send out since his arrival.

    He needs backing, proper backing, not this ametuer stuff we had from Ed and judge in the summer. Keep the faith and back the manager in the stands & in the boardroom, and we will return the the right end of the table. It's not an overnight thing. We all knew that before so why people are jumping on the Ole out campaign now is ludicrous

    If Di Maria is a snake for changing his mind, then so are some of our "fans" imho

    I loved Ole as a player and I believe he has the mentality to return us where we want/need to be. Certain clubs have certain cultures. Ole thrived here before on a playing compacity... He needs time to flourish again

    Just my 2p

    You can see the pain etched on ole's face when results go against us. He cares. I want a manager who cares. Not a mercanary like others have been in the past...

    Allegri is a great manager, but also unproven outside of his home country... I mean, loads of managers could guide a juventus team to success. That's why I don't rate Zidane... Good coaches they may be... But managers? Questionable if you ask me

    Agree all around. Some of the “fans” are trying to cancel a ski jump mid-jump.

    If I know I'm going to die during that ski jump, I'm good with cancelling it and saving whatever's left of my life.

    I don't see the comparison between Di Maria and us. Di Maria changed his mind in a month. Nothing changed in the time he made that statement and the time he left.

    I think I don't even need to say a lot changed between the time everyone wanted Ole in and some realized he has no clue what he's doing.

    I’m not gonna pick at the Ole debate again but for the purposes of the analogy, if you wanted to live, you’d focus on trying to stick the landing because as I said, you’re trying to cancel mid-jump. You’ve already left the ramp. You’re airborne now.

    It's not an excuse because I'm not saying its guaranteed to turn around in the slightest. As several of us have said so many times now, I'm simply saying he should be given more time before coming to a conclusion.

    Yeah, I'd rather spread my hands and legs out, possibly injuring them but saving my life. I 100% die if I continue with this stupid, ill-fated jump just because my favorite uncle who used to be great 20 years ago told me to. If I abandon it, maybe I'll be injured but have a chance of coming out alive.

    It's perfectly plausible that it doesn't turn out this way, but if, with a bit of luck, Ole is able to turn this around, there's quite a sizeable chunk of this fanbase who really don't deserve to enjoy it. As I said before, there's thinking a managerial change is the best option, and there's the stuff way beyond that that some people are coming out with.
