Dropping Maguire and Ronaldo, and hopefully McFred, is just the start. Both of the new lads in defence showed up how shit Shaw and Maguire are.
Been thinking the same all day. Not been this buzzing in a long time, felt like a virtually complete performance. But if we drop points through brain farts against Southampton then we'll see how much of a work in progress this side really is. ETH needs to be strong and stick to his guns with Ronaldo, Maguire and Shaw. Big problem last season was, if you drop them, the replacement is just as shite, but with a couple of hungry players breathing down their necks then it can only be an improvement.

Excellent tactics, excellent performance, and gutsy team choices. I thought ETH looked like a deer in headlights the first two games, but he impressed me yesterday. Tore Liverpool open. He dropped Ronaldo for Elanga ffs, then Elanga was very unlucky not to score the first goal.

Of course, we probably can’t play that way against most teams. It was a bit of a return to Oleball. It will be interesting to see if we manage to improve on playing it out from the keeper, the way we tried the first two games. Under Ole, we never managed to develop a convincing style of play when we dominated possession.

Watching Varane and Martinez yesterday was the first time in years that I’ve seen two United players look like a good CB partnership.

Anyone else having trouble using the quote function here? On my iPad and iPhone the quote text is all scrunched up, the box you type into is tiny and there‘s no space to type a comment.
Is it just me or is there a problem?

I can use the quick reply function, but can't quote, can't reply, can't start a new topic.
