Off Topic: Notts Red Devils!!

Hi all, I've opened this thread hopefully so Morti and I can discuss all things Man Utd. Especially stuff that doesn't fit into twitter posts.

Just an experiment...but lets see how we progress. Everyone is welcome to join in.

Few questions for Morti:

- do you still think Adnan should go on loan?
- if not Pedro, who?
- your view on the De Gea situation
- where do you think we'll finish this season?

Great to see my beloved Man United back where they belong.



It was a top performance (based on recent years). Darmain and Memphis are great signings and it looks like we have a fully fit Luke Shaw now.

I think we're only one quality defender away from challenging (not winning)...but being right up there. If we had a Vidic, Kompany or Terry (from last season) it would just be amazing. Plus, of course a committed De Gea.

Hopefully this thread will KO and keep out most of the United talk out of the World Football thread. Which pretty much was a Man United thread anyway.

Like I said, anyone can join in...but I'm really interested to read Morti's thoughts especially.

Here are the match stats:



My Ratings:

20 Romero 6
36 Darmian 8
12 Smalling 7
17 Blind 7
23 Shaw 8
28 Schneiderlin 7
16 Carrick 6 (Schweinsteiger 6 )
08 Mata 6
11 Januzaj 5 (Hernández 5 )
07 Depay Rooney (Fellaini 7 )

Memphis' touches:

Pretty depressed about the whole Pedro thing, tbh. I know he wasn't crucial but annoying how he's now joined a rival team. I'll be less annoyed if we sign a couple more players just hurts atm. Otamendi we should've signed as well but we actually have the best defensive record in the PL since November And Smalling has been amazing too. I still think we need a striker and a winger. Ibra and Mane would be nice

For me a defender is crucial but I don't know who is the solution. Hope LVG can pull a rabbit out of the hat.

At least we got the full backs sorted.

You never know, Darmain-Smalling-Rojo- Shaw could click.

Or maybe I'm too optimistic! I do feel confident this season.

They've looked good so far. Darmian is awesome, Shaw has been really good and will surely only improve and Smalling looks like the boss! Blind has done well too though I do worry about him, just so slow and he's not really built like a CB...

I love players like Blind. Not spectacular but can fit in and do a job in many positions. He's one of my faves in this team.

Reminds me so much of Cocu.

Him at CB is ok in an emergency. But when it gets tough he will be exposed.

I really like this squad now. Just 2-3 more editions and we'll be challenging for everything.

This season a league and FA cup will do

After watching that Newcastle game we really need more in attack. Think we'll get a lot of frustrating afternoons like that if we don't get anyone in

I think it should be either or Schneiderlin/Carrick and Herrera plays each game.

Don't see the reason why we have so much defence minded midfielders. I know we haven't had an opponent score against us yet. But we need to score goals!

Down the years I always liked the fact of one big touch guy who can attack headers and one clever little player. I wasn't convinced Smalling and Blind was that...but now I'm not so sure.

I've never agreed of two big CBs. You only need one big man (Juhász, Vidic, Kompany etc). Many times RedNev2 played at CB alongside a big man and did very well.

Very happy Herrera played!

From now on I'd like to see him be first choice and Schneiderlin/Carrick rotated. Obviously Bastian can be included in the rotation

I loved the game tonight. Darmain is by far the best full back we've had since Denis Irwin. Faultless!

Obviously MOTM is WAZZA!



My ratings:


20 Romero 6
36 Darmian 9
12 Smalling 8
17 Blind 8
23 Shaw 7
16 Carrick 7
21 Herrera 8 (Hernández - 64' 4 )
08 Mata 5 (Young - 62' 5)
11 Januzaj 5 (Schweinsteiger - 45' 7 )
07 Depay 8
10 Rooney 10





See ya next time mate!

I just watched the highlights I edited of the Hungarian footage

Keep an eye on the defence and how they bring the ball out now and make passes/chances. It was like watching Ajax 1994/95.
