I was worried that they were gonna continue with their awful spell towards the end of the last season and then go on to fire Ole but now it really looks encouraging that he may just be good enough to be around that 4th spot and avoid getting fired for almost entire season which would be a perfect scenario.

It’s been just over 18 months since they were last back and now they’re back again.

How do they do it? 

May as well give them the league now to be honest.

He is garbage. Good enough cross to Martial for the goal (with terrible marking) - but he's terrible. You should keep playing him.

You’re good on the break though...but utterly crap elsewhere...

I’ve always thought your defensive problems were more to do with your midfield than anything else


Two of them are no where near good enough, and the other one?  The other one just looks on a different level at times and then at other times looks like it’s all beneath him...

Notwithstanding the scoreline, quite a few really good signs

AWB the anti-Trent in attack. When we play if those two ever touch the universe will end.

Pogba, moody and listless as ever, only springs into action at 4-0 for the opportunity to pad his stats, starts calling for the ball and waving his arms about angrily.

General midfield: championship level.

Captain Beefheart: Seems somehow even slower in red, and 100% with terrible header placement. Clearly worth just more than VVD Yoshida, just about.

Luke ate all the pies: huffing after 10 mins. Not seen after 20.

The crowd: From exuberant to groaning in 15 mins, then ecstatic certain title winners on a quick double against the run of play. This lot will be ripping everyone new ones before Sept is out.

Shaping up to be another excellent season
Damn that Mane's good!

Now, I’m no coach (and I know some of you are).. but isn’t it the job of the coaching team to decide on a style, buy players to suit it and spend the preseason coaching them to achieve it?

Or am I being unreasonable?

Yeah, I actually watched the match today as I was in the pub. Both teams were poor, but you’ve got some quick forwards in Martial and Rashford, and a player like Pogba who can pick a proper pass on the break, who punished Chelsea’s poor defending. Fair bit of luck too on the run of the ball. One of those games that looks like an annihilation if you only know the score and didn’t see the game.

I’m hoping Chelsea are this shit on Wednesday and Lampard hasn’t weirdly prioritised a Super Cup over league points...

For some situations, no. A typical allardyce, parachuted in as the January window closes, normally to a team with no budget is excellent at finding round holes for his round pegs. Maybe that's what United need....

It works both ways - you can impose a style and buy the players to fit, or you can have some general principles of play, and adapt the rest to the players you have. Getting caught between the two stools is what catches most English/British managers out

Diverting little tidbit in the Mail (yes, I know) today.

Quote
Ed Woodward has encouraged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to start parking in the manager's spot at Manchester United's Carrington training ground.

The Norwegian was reluctant to use the space, given he saw it as 'the gaffer's (Mr. Ferguson's) spot' which he did not feel comfortable with taking.

However, executive vice chairman Woodward, perhaps wary of continued jibes that United live in the past, or perhaps of the radical opinion that the manager should park in the manager's parking space, is keen for the club to move forward and has made his feelings known.

It's a results business, and the players probably thought the club hadn't hired a manager to replace Mourinho given that the parking space was invariably empty since last December. They needed to realize that the gnome in the human suit wasn't just there for ornamental purposes and that there was more to him than chirping "We are Man United" in a high-pitched voice.

With all the hullabo about VAR, defenders wrapping 2 arms around and blatant holding is ok I guess as long as it's outside the box because refrees will let it go. This is what the MOM absolute bargain defender and United's shiny new toy did just before the second goal.

Of course it is. Both teams were awful, and united won't be gifted that much space every week, and they won't come against such an ineffective attacking side every week either.

Loving the media reaction this morning - full of words like 'destruction', 'rout', Utd's front line looking dangerous this season etc.

Any front line with pace is going to look dangerous when the opposition centrebacks are stood on the halfway line all game you numpties.

I can't even begin to imagine how many chances we'd create if Salah and Mane had a whole half a pitch to run into.

Oh it comes to Divock Origi... he's won the European Cup for Liverpool! The man who cut down Barcelona has taken Tottenham down in Madrid! And it's dreamland worrying times for Liverpool Football Club. Shame really.

The parking space issue speaks volumes. Ferguson's probably still turning up frequently enough to make this an ongoing dilemma....otherwise, why would anybody give a fuck? An "empty space" set aside for the person who holds the role is just that.

It's not fucking 'haunted' and it's not like it's Ferguson's pipe, slippers and hobnobs somebody wants to re-purpose for themselves, or that cosy, warm side of the bed next to his missus. It's a parking space. Ferguson's got a statue full of birdshit permanently parked outside the ground, and a stand with his name on it.

Perhaps the parking space in question isn't individually 'named' and just says "Manager" in which case, get it named you twats, and let Ferguson and everybody else know [especially Solskjaer] that it's now a transient piece of estate which is automatically inherited by the person the players must currently call 'gaffer.'

I still think it's a combination of Ferguson still turning up however, and Solskjaer being well aware of this, and feeling like a twat displacing him after the many aeons he's been habitually using it.

Now that they have the league wrapped up, we can just be grateful they aren't in the CL.

There was a really really odd comment from Solskjaer after the game....


He said ‘we're working on finding style that suits us, suits the players we have’...

Now, I’m no coach (and I know some of you are).. but isn’t it the job of the coaching team to decide on a style, buy players to suit it and spend the preseason coaching them to achieve it?

Or am I being unreasonable?

Wants weird about it is there’s only one way you can play with that squad - a low block and counter attack.
He keeps wanting them to press which is a nonsense, the midfield isn’t athletic or quick enough
As soon as they dropped off in the second half then looked to counter they looked much better

Problem for them is in this league if you want top 4 you’ve got to dominate the dross - don’t think they’re set up to do that at all

They've been irrelevant for a few years, but now that they're champions, it brings back all the reasons why I hate them. Have to put with their smug fans going on about how they're the biggest club in London now. Still congrats to Ole for his spirit of 99, roll on 2021
