Re: vs Brighton

...meanwhile, back in the real world...our local 4th division semi-pro no-hopers just put the German Cup holders out in the first round of the German Cup!
No fluke - just the right tactics executed by a team who wanted to win. JoMo and his whole team could learn a lot from that...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

That's a bit unfair - I was responding to an earlier suggestion that Liverpool might be a serious threat this year, and was merely pointing out that Klopp's style of play means you need to have a deep squad and that they therefore might struggle to maintain a serious challenge. And this is, after al...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

Might be the case Sid, but I was thinking too of his time at Dortmund. That high intensity gegenpressing style can take its toll over the full season. If you don't have good squad depth, you can end up pressing players into games when they have niggling, minor, injuries that would normally respond t...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

They will certainly start well and could even head the table at Christmas - the question is whether they can sustain a real challenge. I like Klopp's style of football, but there is no doubt that his high intensity approach means you end up with a lot of injured player. The perennial question is whe...

Re: United set to create DoF role

Ralf Rangnick would be my choice, though van der Sar sounds like an interesting call... Key thing, as others above have noted, is that having a DOF means you can get your signings teed up well before the transfer window opens. Look at Bayern - they are past masters at agreeing advance terms with pla...

Re: vs Leicester

Thought Pogba had a very strong game. As before, he really seems to react to being captain. Might be worth making that permanent?
Fred looked good too. Think we made a good move there. And although I've never had much time for Shaw, I thought he did well too.
