    Schweini can't even get into Carrington but Rooney gets in the first 11.

    Him or Carrick sitting and Herrera + Pogba ahead.


    But tactical genius knows best.

    LvG made better use of Martial's talent & so far under Mourinho Martial has been pretty much none existent!

    Also bring Schweiny back ffs

    So many better options we could have bought instead of #Pogbad

    J.Rodriguez
    Xhaka
    Gundogan
    Kante
    Kroos
    the list goes on...

    :facepalm2:
    Wijnaldum tbh

    We play Leicester, Liverpool and Chelsea in our next 4 games. Leicester could be a draw if we're lucky but the other two are certain defeats.

    150m spent and out of the title race before the clocks go back. We've backed the wrong horse unfortunately.

    I feel we miss wingers, Martial is good at LW but on the other side we need an out and out winger like in the old days of Becks, Ronaldo and even Nani. Also having Fellaini and Pogba in the team won't work long term even though Fellaini was great today imo. Btw that was a clear foul on Martial. Ref's quite clearly hate Jose. I think Pogba at 10 with Ibra/Rashford is the way to go.

    Less said about Rooney the better

    I simply can not understand why you would pay £90mil for Pogba then play him in a 2 man midfield.. especially alongside a liability like Fellaini. You're putting a leash on him. You should get a proper DM in like Schneiderlin, with Pogba and somebody else (Herrera?) ahead. Then you could obviously have two wide men flanking Ibrahimovic, but with your players I'd go with a diamond and have Mkhitriyan playing in behind Ibra and Rashford.

    It's not just Pogba. Fellaini, Mata, Kagawa, Di Maria, Falcao, Schneiderlin, Mkhitaryan have all been bought in for big money and repeatedly played out of position. Our board are so obsessed with bringing in Big names with absolutely no thought to how they will fit into the team. It's absolutely pathetic, nobody else in the league does it. Especially when Rooney is undroppable despite being an utter waste of space every week.

    Sr90's post is spot on!

    It will actually start to put off big name players in coming to United altogether knowing that they will probably be played out of their preferred positions.

    Pep's come in. Got his players believing in his style of play, identified the weaknesses in his team and got rid of them.

    Mourinho's come in (round about the same time), still doesn't know his best team and its like LVG's still in charge.

    I bet Arsenal again will lose home and away to piss poor United and Chelsea teams.

    What I like about Pep is he had balls to get rid of deadwood. First week he was already telling Joe Hart he doesn't favour him and that he can leave. Man knows exactly what he wants.

    Sterling has also completely transformed under Pep as well! Absolutely deadly with KDB and Gundogan.

    Put Mhiki instead of Rashford and i would agree. Rashford doesn't do as well on the right he seems more lethal on the left.

    Or Mhiki can play where Fellaini is..

    Thought Fellaini was quite poor today. Job was to screen the back four and help aerially but never seemed to win any headers and Deeney & Ighalo seemed to have too much time on the ball.

    Whether thats the managers fault for playing yet another player out of position...

    Get Basti back.

    ...you sound exactly like Mourinho blaming the ref for our bad performance. It does not hide the fact that we are playing poorly.

    He did this at Chelsea, blaming refs whenever things never went his way and look what happened. It's dejavu and it's happening to us rn wake up...

    This image shows how far each team has run so far this season and it's clear to see that the ones who run the most are the teams who are the most fun to watch.

    City, Liverpool and Spurs working really hard and getting deserved points, whilst United and Chelsea doing the bare minimum.
