@Federer and Del Potro Mr Balz-Maguire talking in the post match interview. He knew not to interfere when Ronaldo was making his leap to save the day 2 games running in the Champions League. Watch and admired. He will formally undress himself in the showers.

It's one of the complaints you hear a lot. Lacking the high tempo and intensity when it is 0-0. Looking clueless at times, it's like they transform. But then, it is not a regular thing and you wouldn't expect to be let off the hook like that against Liverpool.
Goldbridge seemed disappointed they won lmao. He’s fully on the Ole out train out of nowhere.

What is he saying about Sancho now? Asking because he talked about him every day during the summer transfer window (not even this one, the previous one when we didn't even bring him :-D). So much that I made a take a shot every time Mark says Jadon Sancho game out of it LOL.

Goldbridge and his minions are starting to get worried. A lot of them are now hardcore Ole out people. They end up keep going back to the same thing. If Sancho isn't getting games then why did we bother signing him instead of a midfield player? Again, just think that comes down to Ole being happy with midfield. If we could show that sort of second half intensity from tonight and all that good stuff as a regular thing then I wouldn't complain. (Tighten the defense up so I wouldn't complain as much.)

Even though I'm not keen on McTominay or Fred. I think they've been made scapegoats due to our overall standard. Sometimes I'm wondering if another centre midfield player would make much difference.

Goldbridge was comparing Sancho and Grealish earlier. Another one of his praise Pep moments. Not comparing their game, just how big money was spent on both. Grealish is playing every game and settling down, while Sancho is in and out. ''Pep looks after his players, makes them feel part of the family.''

Felt sorry for Malmo, they just couldn't get anywhere near the ball. The fans looked so disappointed. Could be a different game in Sweden in a few weeks time though, you never know.

One thing to note was the Chelsea wing backs playing more centrally, kind of like what City do with Cancelo. Just a little tweak to the system, but could be interesting to keep an eye on and see how it works against more challenging opposition.

There were some really strange comments from Tuchel today. He's always straight talking, doesn't get involved in speculation or gossip etc.. Yet he says the club have been speaking to Haaland, wants to play him with Lukaku and we'll hear something about it in the next couple of weeks :unsure:

Even if it was essentially a done deal, you wouldn't feel confident coming out with those comments. Strange!

I am of the opinion that the 2nd half was 100% the players. Ronnie rallied them in the break and they went for it.

Solskjaer delivered the halftime speech against Leicester. Ronaldo did it against Atalanta. The Sun reported. Depending on result against Liverpool (and all future games) we will know which one of them took charge in the dressing room. Ole :sick: or Ronnie :love::love::love:

7-0, all scored by young English players and half the team were academy graduates.

You’ve got to imagine Gallagher will have a role next season. Then there’s Christensen and Gilmour who arrived at the academy a bit later than the others.

You would’ve been sectioned if you predicted that from Chelsea 5 years ago.

Maguire is so crap its not even funny, a captain whose leadership is non-existent and makes stupid mistakes all the time.

Apparently this will be Penaldo’s worst loss of his career (5-0 vs Farcelona back in the Pep days)

I can’t say I feel bad for Ole as this has been coming for quite awhile. He has to go. As for the rest of the side I think there’s a lot of talent in it, but you need two quality CMs at minimum.

Best part of that game was the cut from a miserable Alex Ferguson to Kenny Dalglish laughing his head off after the fifth goal.

Man United were dismal, and Liverpool took their chances. Henderson's through ball to Salah for the fifth was sublime.

United fans behind the goal applauding in stoppage time with their team 5-0 down at home to their biggest rivals was pretty shocking.

The picture of United fans leaving the stadium just after an hour has to be one of the most embarrassing scenes ever.

I wasn't confident going into the match but this was beyond the worst nightmare.

Maguire and Shaw played like they had a few before the game, running into each other. Then you're leaving the hottest player in the world free. Salah isn't going to miss. Be here all day talking the match.

Definitely felt like one of the most humbling single results ever. I had to look back at some results, can remember most of them. The 5-0 by Newcastle with that sexy Albert (Murray) lob over Schmeichel. United were the best then so it didn't matter as much.

Have to all Goldbridge again. He was talking about Chelsea firing Frank Lampard. A bigger legend at Chelsea and all, you could see what he was trying to do. They got Tuchel in. Of course, it is a different situation here. Roman likes football and wants Chelsea to be as successful as they can. It's all about making a certain bottom line at United and not falling outside the top 4.

Wouldn't be all Ole out if it was a one-off. You could see it coming, we've gone backwards from last season when we received a bit of luck to due to other team's misfortunes. I'm not screaming Ole out. But, when it happens, it happens. Did feel sorry for him during the post match interview.

Errors leading to shots 8. Rock Bottom.
Clean sheets 1. 18th
foals conceded 15. 18th.

Somehow I misread that as 15 fouls. And it would still be believable, conceded or given. No need for opponents to foul us when we give the ball away instantly, while we just watch most of them effortlessly approach our goal. :-D

Not the first time Maguire and Shaw have come up with a Dumb and Dumber mix up, happened in the embarrassing loss at home to Spurs last season as well.

time to regurgitate my conviction that managers aren't nearly as important as they are made out to be.

any one of the star managers have usually had great and disappointing seasons with various clubs, depending largely on the quality and health of the team and the resources they have available. Same manager, yet very different results. It'd be an exaggeration to say they are glorified mascots, but it's not that far off.

(Yes, I will make up any rationalization to keep Ole at the wheel.)


I do think that his days are numbers, and that Man U need to make some changes to live up their ambitions. That may include switching managers, but probably a lot more than that also.

ESPN reporting Ole may be on the way out. Conte in. Thoughts? :unsure:
I listened to Barbie on the United Stand this morning. She was raving about the Ajax manager. Clickbait title asking - is Ole hours from sack? Sexy Romano was on the show. Yeah, I'd take Conte because he's a proven winner and hasn't started going downhill. Might not stay for long but you wouldn't fancy him to do worse than Ole.

''Unless you want to pay the super chat and expose yourself.''

Not expecting anything from it.

I disagree. :p

Zidane is the mandatory contender for United, but Eddie is pricing him out because he is shooting a DAZN documentary with Ole.

Can't see us getting the lot more. Not with this lot in charge. I see they purchased something else today. Pressure could have been put on them after the match getting cancelled last season. Nothing else came of it, of course. They brought in Sancho, Varane and Ronaldo. All was forgiven until we started playing again.
