Time for a sir Fergie and Wenger duo to takeover the reins for the remainder of the season.
Pogba was good with Vidal next to him at Juventus. But when he doesn't have that he doesn't really work out. He tried to be the star player by making dribbles but hes not that kind of player. Pogba is a decent team player if he's not the leader. Its said he wants to move to Real but they're also a divided team on the way down.
True but City has more luxury on the bench. The complete bench of City would be a worthwhile addition to United. And did they spend that much more? I think United made higher individual signings, City's most expensive player was Laporte wasn't it?The problem with this United approach is that they really believe the Alex Ferguson method of building the team with academy players + 4/5 acquisitions is going to work in the modern game. You can't compete when you try to force academy players into roles they don't have the talent for. Rashford can't be your main striker, Lingard can't be your attacking midfielder, Greenwood can't be your backup striker, McTominay can't be your main holding mid, etc. Still it seems they are really forcing this issue once again with this "play the kids" approach. Even Guardiola doesn't play Foden very often and he's better than every young United player besides Rashford, you have to earn it by merit not because where you come from.
I remember reading Allegri's eyeing United as his next project but who knows
In the last 5 seasons the net spend of City was €-668M while United was €-486M. Both are 1st and 2nd. Liverpool has a net spend of €-111M. When I see those 3 teams I really don't see United's investment on display in the field compared to those 2.
Yeah but Chelsea will run into games like that with such a young squad. Lamps is doing an awesome job though. This is the most interesting Chelsea i've seen in quite a while.
Owh yeah, good call. Forgot about Allegri. Still, need something better than OGS.I remember reading Allegri's eyeing United as his next project but who knows
A new manager won't change anything. The manager isn't the problem. Pocchettino, Allegri, whoever comes next will struggle the same way. We just really desperately need a new Head of Football and a modern structure at the back end.
You played good that game, the 1st half certainly. Missing chances in the final third. That score doesn't really say a lot. Lampard seems to be doing a good job so far.
Bayern actually offloaded Robben, Ribery and Hummels. While Boateng and Muller aren't starters anymore either. But Kovac wasn't sacked after a mediocre start, and they have new talents emerging such as Gnabry. Bayern doesn't seem to sink.
Kovac had experience in the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt and had even beaten Bayern the season before he joined in the Pokal Cup final. This history meant Bayern were justified in giving him extra time. OGS is just Tim Sherwood with worse tactics who is still coasting on the wins he got when he became manager. If he's not sacked by Christmas I will be very surprised.Bayern actually offloaded Robben, Ribery and Hummels. While Boateng and Muller aren't starters anymore either.

They are doing what United forgot to do.
it’s happened before, right before Koeman got fired. I can’t imagine Silva lasts much longer. And then they’ll get another like 6-8 months of a decent run of play from whoever comes next and we do it all again.
