I saw a stat the other day about presses per game from all the attackers in the league.


I can’t remember who was top, whoever it was had 40 odd per game. Jota and Firmino fared best for us. Can’t remember their numbers. Mo and Mane were doing about 23 per game.

 

Ronaldo was bottom, doing 2.5 per game. The player second bottom (cant remember again) was doing 5 per game.

 

So Ronaldo is working half as hard as the 2nd worst presser on the league.


Neville’s analysis of them being two teams of 5 was interesting tonight.


I think he should be their new manager.

I didn't see the Neville thing, but having a 36 year old Ronaldo up front is the equivalent of what these Serie A teams do and some of these 90's and 2000's teams where you'd have these specialists who only do one thing. 1 striker who scores goals, 2 wingers who play wide, a number 10 who creates chances and two midfielders who tackle. 

 

Man United don't really press, and with Ronaldo they can't. They don't really have patterns of play. It's just go out there and try to do what you're good at individually. Total opposite of what us and City do.

They don’t press, they don’t get behind the ball, there is no style and they aren’t improving. They either aren’t doing it on the training pitch or the players aren’t pay attention. Solakjaer isn’t as good as Klopp, Guardiola or Tuchel.

When I saw the half-arsed way they strolled through that eminently winnable Southampton game a few weeks back, I had the opposite impression Michael Corleone had when he saw a Cuban revolutionary blow himself up and he concluded that if they're that desperate and committed they just might win.

Yes, and usually with managers that are considerably better in every single aspect of management than Ole.

Fuck's sake Carragher.

 

Love Neville's reasons for not calling for him to be sacked.

 

While basically calling for him to be sacked.

Manchester Evening News:

 

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unhappy that the club failed to sign a midfielder in the summer.

 

If he's even remotely unhappy he doesn't realise he's basically a fucking lottery winner. Miles out of his depth with his dream job.

Thing is, he’s such an egotistical gobshite that if united lost their next 40 games after spending another £200 million in January, he’d still be saying he wasn’t given a fair crack of the whip when they finally sacked him.  
 

The only thing worse than an arrogant winner is an arrogant loser.

If only they had signed one last summer. Somebody like Donny Van de Beek maybe?

They have a few midfielders who I suspect Klopp could get a tune out of.

Ole couldn't get a tune out of Stevie Wonder.

I said from the beginning the return of the mighty Ronaldo would be a huge mistake long term.

 

I'm now starting to realize it's actually a huge short term mistake as well.

 

Yet everyone over there demands he should play, even Ferguson. He's stuck in his corner now Sunny boy, damned if he leaves him out damned if he plays.

I remember being scorned left, right and centre by United fans saying Ronaldo was essentially nothing but an extremely good goal poacher these days and would throw off the balance of the team, or at least what balance remained.

 

Anyone who had watched more than a couple of Juve games last season would have been able to see it for themselves. Of course, that would be too sobering for the fans of Hubris F.C and anyone who said it was a mistake were just jealous.

Pretty sure Neville criticising the players last night was an attempted to light a fire under them ahead of Sunday.

It was quite telling on Saturday night as I watched their game MotD, I honestly don't think I heard his name once in the "highlights"

 

He will turn up when he feels like it in the big games, his tracking and pressing are non-existent.

As shit as they are, I can see them getting an incredibly lucky counter-attack win against either us or City. They'll always have the ref bias and Solskjaer won't be stupid enough to play a 4-2-3-1 with Ronaldo up front and Pogba in the midfield 2 against us. (If he does, we'll batter them.)

The authorities should tell the cunts that if, due to their fans, they are unable to safely host the fixture then it is classed as a 2-0 away win. Give them fair warning.


If there are protests again on the weekend I hope to fuck Souness is covering the game for sky.

He'll deffo start him I think. But they'll drop someone else to accommodate him. In fact from that team at the weekend I would expect him to axe greenwood and Sancho and bring in Fred and mctominnay. So a midfield 3 of Fred, mctominnay and matic, with Fernandes and pogba behind the rapist.
