Good win tbf, I called it. Lena are a good team.

I noticed Onana got chipped :)) they've been waiting for that to happen cos he's a sweeper keeper

No doubt it will happen again during the season and the pundits will become hysterical

Alright you lot. Signed myself off from football for the last few months and I'm feeling pretty refreshed.

Still inches away from Qatar and Greenwood and having to pack it in but I've just caught myself up on those transfers and I have to say we've not done that bad considering every cunt wants to take our pants down on transfers.

Ten Hag solved Ronaldo, solved Rashford, solved the defence, solved the midfield, and has now hopefully solved GK and got us a forward who could be special. He's wrestled the squad back from the brink IMO. Even loving that big Johnny Evans is back. Never should've sold him. Dam sight better than Blind, Maguire, Rojo, Jones and Smalling. Obviously he's getting on so might be more a backup but nice to see nonetheless.

Not seen us in preseason and not arsed one bit. Not paying any mind to the circus. Just going to watch games until the inevitable sale.

Hope you're all well.

"Just going to watch games until the inevitable sale."

Think that's a good attitude to have tbh. Enjoy it, and see what happens. The football will undoubtedly be better cos Hag is a top coach and we've made signings that progress his style of play.

Good performance against a full strength Bilbao side. Love seeing some many yoot starting to come through and show they are ready to be involved this season. Gore and Fernandez put in a good performance and Sancho was excellent.

What role did Sancho play?

9. That's been his position all preseason.
He's our backup to Hojlund if its not Greenwood.

False 9 by the looks of it. And apparently he was very good at it too.

Offers something different next season. To my knowledge it's unusual for Hag to try such a thing cos he likes a focal point.

Worry about his physicality but it could work. If Hag thinks Rashford, Antony and Bruno can score the goals with Sancho dropping in. Big "if" looking at last season.

Definitely a plan B or for games where we expect to have possession.

Interesting. I believe false 9 was a tactic ten Hag did use at Ajax and he's also previously mentioned Sancho in that role.
