It’s the hot and giddy summer of 2018 when Ingerlaand reunited the country despite coming back home with nowt but pride. Still we caught sight of the finest Maguire since Adrian booted Cool Ground home in the Gold Cup. Worth a cheeky bid Mr Mourinho?

Of course our main targets are  Willian and Toby Alderweireld. Sadly Ed is still knocking on Romans door on the old Kings Road not realising the Russian’s visa is still in the same in tray as Geert Wilders. Meanwhile Barca have made two bids for him. Come on Ed, sort it out my mate.

Meanwhile Levy will still be committing the financial version of waterboarding  Ed until he pays 70m for Toby.

Anybody else coming in at the expense of a few leaving can only be good news.

Most important of all will be seeing a healthy Sir Alex sitting in his seat for the first match of the season #thoughtswithSAF

Big season ahead, can see us challenging for the title if we get the players Mourinho has identified

Love United, still hate the Glazer’s

Tonight has no bearing on what OGS has done, he has come in and got the team playing to their maximum, that means rolling over the likes of Fulham and Cardiff, Bournemouth and Newcastle, it even means putting on decent displays and beating Spurs and Arsenal.

What it doesn't mean is dining at the top table of European football or winning the EPL, tonight simply brought that into sharp focus.

What the board need to decide going forward is whether OGS is the man they want to hand a lorry load of cash to in order to try and get United to compete in Europe and to challenge for the title, United are way short at that level atm.

He wouldn't be for me and I've said that all along, he may be a legend to us but we can't live in that cuddly wuddly world all the time, he doesn't have the stature on a wider stage, he's not impressive, he doesn't come across as a leader to me.

Paying really for the transfer policy of just buying anyone rather than what we need and players to fit a system. Squad is so thin to fit the system we're trying to play. Sanchez needs to be moved on, just looks plain finished to me.

Did think we shouldn't have brought Mata on at HT. Bring on Lukaku and move Rashford out wide still leaves some threat of pace and Lukaku might have actually won headers from the many crosses we put in. Once we made those HT subs we lost all pace and ability to press from the front and in the second half were just totally outclassed if we're honest.

Going to come down to the boards desire. The squad needs a lot of spending, but I never know with out board if they're just happy with top 4 finishes and don't really care about competing. Ironically it could mean coming 4th would make them less likely to spend a truck load than finishing 4th will.

I'd say the starting XI from last night are up to standard, some as first choice, some as squad players. Most if not all of the rest should be replaced, although that's far too big a job to do quickly.

Decide on a style and how we want to play and sign players accordingly. If its a style based on pace and moving the ball quickly then go with that.

I'd worry that if we make top 4 the board will be happy with that, appoint Solskjaer on the cheap and spend little money on new players.

Don't think we learned anything we didn't already know. They were much better than us but we knew that beforehand. The first goal was always going be dictate and we thought we might struggle if they got it, they did and we were lucky to escape a hiding. Solskjaer can only work with what he's got and out of the squad I'd say there are five or six who are first eleven material, 5-6 who we need to get shot of immediately and the rest are good squad players.

very few top players would SHUN  the RED SHIRT OF UNITED .

Here's a few that have recently :

Hummels

"“The overall package means: a club which fascinates me; a club I have always wanted to join, and where the sporting constellation is right, and which of course plays Champions League football next season."

Varane

“It’s not easy to say ‘no’ to Jose Mourinho,” said Varane, when he did just that in 2016.

N'Golo Kante

“It was amazing to have Mourinho call me, even though I’d been warned before how he would appeal to me,”” Kante said.

“I listened to his arguments about why I should move to United, but at that time I was hesitant between staying at Leicester or leaving for Chelsea.

Renato Sanches

“I arrived late,” Mourinho told Portuguese TV after the Community Shield. “I signed in May, we started talking a week before, but completely out of the process. If I had arrived earlier, I’d fight for him.

“Manchester United watched Renato many times and maybe I did it even more.”

Breel Embolo

“In the winter a few requests came. It’s clear that clubs become alert when a young player does not play.

“Not once (had he considered leaving). I have found a family club with Schalke, in which football is lived. When I was hurt I had so much support, was purposefully and gently reintroduced.”

Willian

“Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I’m very happy at Chelsea.”

Neymar

“A lot of conversations with the player, telling him he wanted to bring him from Barcelona to the Premier League – and Neymar encouraged that.

“But they were blown out of the water by PSG in terms of scale of salary and obviously the willingness to pay the release cause.

Antoine Griezmann

“I have stayed mainly because of the transfer ban. Atletico needed me now more than ever and I felt I had to stay. It would be dirty to leave. I wouldn’t have been myself, or the person that I feel I am today, if I had left this club in that way.”

Alvaro Morata

“Morata is a Real Madrid player. Madrid made a decision and we didn’t reach an agreement with them. It is simple. It is a shame.

“He is a player who made it to the first team with me. We have a special liking for him, he is someone special. I enjoyed seeing his growth at Juventus and Madrid.

“It is like that. I don’t think he can end with us.” Morata joined Chelsea a week later.

Gareth Bale

Various reasons!

Ivan Perisic

This summer’s interest was reported to be dead as Inter inflated the 29-year-old’s price following the tournament.

Justin Kluivert

“I have heard the rumours but I haven’t spoken to Mourinho, a move to Manchester United wouldn’t make sense, for now,” he told Dutch media in early 2018, before joining Roma in the summer.

Harry Maguire

“Leicester have been unbelievable to me and I’m really happy there but I’m also an ambitious player and everyone wants to play at the top.”

lingard and martial arrive at carrington ahead of training apparently , maybe just tagging them along

Interesting, would be amazed if either of them played. Too risky surely? Unless Solskjaer is putting all his eggs into the FA Cup basket?

Both injuries looked like strains which you'd think (and Solskjaer said?) would mean weeks out rather than days. Both rely on quick movement/pace so I'd be amazed if either played for a couple of weeks at least.

Shame about Greenwood as I think he'd have featured in some way tomorrow - I doubt any of the youngsters will be blooded against Liverpool and we'll have players back after that.

Lukaku to start and Rashford back out wide would be the obvious choice unless Solskjaer has something up his sleeve again?

Mata did a good job on Jorginho in the league game, a tactic other teams have used with success. I'm sure Lingard would have had that role if fit

yep agree with all that don. Lukaku has a lot to prove now, he slows us down and his first touch isn't great. Good chance for him to redeem himself.

Would be you buying the curry Pete!

Goes without saying what a big game tonight is for both teams, can see it being a nervy affair.

Mata and lukaku in the same lineup doesn't really inspire confidence.

Can leave us a little over ran and out numbered tbh.

Excellent first hslf.
Report olddesperado February 18, 2019 9:23 PM GMT
The two centre backs, the three midfielders and rashford were absolutely excellent tonight.

Rashford was probably my motm.

I can see us getting palace or wolves away next round.

Bring on City.

Get in there! Great performance and great support from the away fans.

All played well but Herrera the star man for me even without his goal.

Can see us getting City in the draw funnily enough!

Fantastic win tonight. Wolves a much more dangerous cup side than Chelsea.

Looking forward to Pop's visit. Be great to throw a spoke in their wheels.
