    Real have been woeful in the league this season. Like Jam said they're doing Moyes vs Fulham every game.

    Mad how they can switch it up for the CL though. Elite mentality.

    France also have runners and they're fullbacks push up forward so even if Pogba's a bit deep he has options with that GOAT passing.

    We have statues in front of him.

    Schneiderin was just trash. Surprised we got £20+ mill for him cause this guy is struggling at Everton.
    He's trash but you start Fellaini and complain about not having energy in the side.

    Pogba and Bailly both to start against Huddersfield.

    Come on Jose, get it right.

    Jose's interview was pretty insightful.

    Against Newcastle Paul played in midfield, we had a six [Nemanja Matic] and two eights [Jesse Lingard and Pogba], with Paul on the left hand side. If you ask Paul what is his preferred formation it is 4-3-3. If you ask him where he likes to play in that formation it is eight, on the left. That is exactly what he was doing against Newcastle.
    He basically admits what we all know. Pogba likes to play in that left hand halfspace in a three man midfield. But Jesse Lingard as an '8'? That is a stretch of the imagination.

    Damn, just seen the press conference. Jose went HAM on the media and they didn't even know how to answer him back :lol:

    Clearly shows that he's not as stubborn as we thought he was and that he knows what he's doing. Makes sense why we are targeting midfielders this summer too, we can't be having Lingard playing as a #8 lol

    So Pep is the definition of an average manager? One requiring specialised players with key attributes to work in his system.

    Yes.

    Pep’s management is basically doing an open book exam, but the rest of the people can’t use their book.

    Alex Ferguson.

    To a far lesser extent, Conte (see the state of Italy before, during and after).

    I reckon the team tomorrow will be something like this:

    -----------------Romero-----------------
    --Lindelof--Bailly--Jones--Shaw--
    ----------------Carrick------------------
    --------Mctominay--Pogba-----------
    ----------Mata----------Sanchez------
    ------------------Lukaku----------------


    Expect Matic, Young and Valencia to be rested. Romero is our cup keeper.

    And it's that attitude that is, in part, responsible to Britain contributing nothing of value to the the tactical development of football since the early 60s.

    Please tell me you are not stupid enough to buy into all these rumrours surrounding Pogba.

    It was also 'only Newcastle', are you trying to jinx us?

    Scared of Huddersfield?

    Your loss to them came about due to individual errors. They’ve beaten you once in 66 years.

    You’ll win easy. 3-0.

    The mighty have fallen, we are no longer the team we once were.

    So Pogba ill, Matic carrying, Herrera injured, Fellaini injured. We're looking at Carrick and McTominay.

    We really are going to need to go on a midfielder buying spree in summer. We're losing two of them, one doesn't get games and the others are kids. Basically just Pogba and Matic come end of the season.
