Well, there just aren’t that many options, even at CB, where it’s just a massive selection of crap options.

Mad we sold Smalling, of all our CBS. wouldn’t you start him in a heartbeat right now?

And I’d definitely try to start VDB, he’s hungry and got good quality, flexible player that can go in a few positions. Maybe play him instead of Fred or Mata.

Down already. It’s too much. Just bad news after bad news. Really feels like Ole’s time is up. It’s mad the way the atmosphere in the club changed the past couple of months.

That goal started about 15 yards off Newcastle's goal line

It all feels just like Jose’s last few months at United. We ended the previous season in the CL spots, so some reason for optimism and expectation of building in that. Then the manager obviously didn’t get anything like what he was looking for during the transfer window. Then performances are shambolic, because either the manager is disillusioned, or the players are, or both.

Tbf we went in to summer as one of the form teams in Europe playing great football. It was Woodward and the Glazers changed the mood and destroyed morale by not signing anyone to address our problems. They've basically put the lid on the coffin that is the Ole project cos they're not interested in winning trophies.

So we're in a rut cos them. But Ole has proven he can't get us out. The Fernandes signing turned it around last time. He didn't motivate the squad or change anything tactically. But now he can't sign anyone. So it does look like he's fucked.

Oh yeah, the blame is mostly on the board, not Ole. And even if the problem is Ole, it’s the board that gave him the job, so it’s still their fault.

Slabhead. Let's hope that turns his form around.
