    In comparison as a CAM, james has the better vision, passing and shooting.

    Of course pogba is better defensively and has much more stength. I think man u lacks creativity, a player who can launch martial, rashford etc.

    How come Juve are willing to let Cancelo go? Wasn’t he one of their better players last season?

    Maybe for the first couple of months. But he fell off.

    still need a midfielder to replace Herrera, a right winger & a no 10 if we are going for 4231 this year

    plus we spunked £80m on Maguire :cry:

    I wouldn’t be too worried about the fee that the club has paid. You needed a CB and you’ve got your number 1 target. I agree though your midfield is pretty bad right now...AC Milan looked much better in the middle of the park the other day.

    i wouldn't have minded the fee if he was actually an £80m player , he should be like £50m at max

    just dont see him massively improving our defence

    Agreed. And the fact we paid that much likely means we won’t look for another starter unless Lindelof leaves, and I think better CBs will be on the move next summer

    I do if they would have signed a decent partner for him Maguire and AWB are fantastic signings regardless of the fees which mean nothing nowadays ! I just think United are still short on the CB position,you boys will still get 4th or 5th ;)

    Even with Maguire, Lindelof is 100% still our best CB.

    Based on what? The only thing Maguire has on Lindelof is heading. Both have great ball control and passing. Statistically Lindelof has been better in every other defensive category. Lindelof was a top 6 or 7 CB in the league last season. Maguire was arguably not even LCFC’s best CB last season. Not even England’s best CB imo

    I really dont get this Maguire hype.

    He has good traits, I appreciate that. But he was very average last season. Not even in Leicesters top 5 players, let alone the top 5 CBs in the league..

    Better in the air, better 1v1 defending, better at bringing the ball out from the back, Maguire faster too. I've seen Lindelof get spun so many times, very overrated CB because he looks competent compared to the calamity next to him (applies to all your CBs except maybe Smalling).

    Past it but a solid signing for them. 1 CB and another winger away from being a very good side.

    If they manage a Zouma type loan from somewhere they'll do well.

    Me either man. Idk what I’m missing. He’s very overrated imo. Not saying he’s a terrible defender or anything, but some people go on like he’s one of the best CB’s in football. he arguably regressed with LCFC last season. Could argue Evans and/or Morgan had a better season.

    Hes english so theres hype around the fact there arent many good ones around. He plays for a club where he can look even better. He has recent notoriety in his rapid rise. Would have preferred alderwereld s d ziyech for 25 mil each

    Grow up. Saying Maguire is better than Lindelof is not 'out there'. It might be something you disagree with but it's not an absurd statement.

    What does Lindelof excel at? He's a "ball playing" centre back but Maguire is probably better at moving into midfield with it. Maguire is comfortably better in the air. Neither are quick or great 1v1, but Maguire definitely has a higher top speed.

    It really is time to stop giving this guy the attention he craves.

    On a footballing front I think Maguire is going to surprise a few this year. I think 80 mil is way too much but when you put it in perspective Tyrone Mings for 30 and it doesn’t seem so silly.

    Na it still kinda does but theres a scarcity of good young english cbs... yeah i got banned for posting about hip hop. This guy is literally trying to start arguments. He cant have a debate he has to have an argument. He could have an argument with a dog if it didnt agree with his views

    I did say ‘so silly’. It’s definitely still silly money!

    Tbf vvd was seen as silly money but liverpool have a better mamnager and system and attitude. Any player that comes in without a major clear out is futile

    Like I said, the stats are there. The only category you'll find that Maguire is clearly better in is in the air. Bringing the ball out the back, they are both great at it. Lindelof has done is successfully plenty of times last season. The only thing separating them as far has ball control is that Maguire has attempted like 3 more long balls per 90 min than Lindelof, and why wouldn't he with Vardy at ST in a system that was made for the long balls and Vardy to run onto. That's the main reason he stands out, but both are more than capable. Idk how he "looks competent" because of the calamity around him, but somehow has the stats to back it :lol: Lindelof has a higher tackle success rate than Maguire. Idk about Maguire being faster, I've always found Maguire to be pretty slow, I'll have to see them play together to judge that one.

    RT.

    AWB is up there with the best defensive full backs available anywhere right now.

    His attacking game could use a little bit of work but I would be shocked if Utd concede anywhere close to the same amount of goals down their right hand side as they do their left.
