If he's fit I'd actually like Keita to play to help find the handbrake on their bus. 

Fred does that all on his own

They're set up to defend deep and play on the counter with pace with Rashford, James and Martial if he's fit. That's tactically inept against the dross of the league as it gives no method for breaking teams down who want to sit deep and let you have the ball. It might work against some better teams though as it's basically Hodgson's Palace blueprint.

 

First goal is massive. If we get it I can see us playing the same sort of spoiling game we played against Spurs in the final knowing they lack the creativity to break us down if we stay organised.

I actually think Origi is a far better player coming from the bench as he is as a starter.

In a blow for us, Pogba is almost certain to miss the game. 

 

Paul Pogba looks certain to miss next Sunday's crunch clash against Liverpool, with Manchester United medics fearing he could be sidelined until at least the end of October. Sportsmail revealed earlier this week that the France midfielder had arrived in Dubai to complete a warm weather rehabilitation programme at the state-of-the-art Transform Altitude Performance Center in hope of accelerating his recovery from a foot injury.

Pogba >>>>> McTominay and Matic put together, so that’s fantastic news for us.

He's the kind of fella that could do something world class in a game so it's good for us.

He's not world class and is a liability in a lot of games against top class players by virtue of the fact that instead of Vidal, Pirlo or Kante to cover for him, he has mediocre players. 

However, he could still score a worldie or play a great defence splitting pass. Given the alternatives they have, it's good news.

Solksjaer would only have played him as a DM ahead of the defence anyway, a position where he isn't very good and also a liability in how easy he loses the ball.

I hear Rashford won the clubs MUFC goal of the month competition for September.

Because he scored the teams only goal of September and that was a penalty.

Not, quite that bad, I checked because it made me laugh. McTominay scores against Arsenal in the league. So he won by virtue of scoring their only in play goal of the month, astonishing’

 

They also scored against the mighty Rochdale in the Milk Cup...

 

Its amazing how bad they are.

I'm still not into it.

 

I stopped watching Man Utd games in 2009 and I stopped watching Liverpool-Man Utd games entirely in 2015 .

 

It was the best decision I've made this decade and I can't recommend it enough.

I stopped as well, unless I was actually at the game, but I did watch the Anfield game  last season and we won, so I may watch this time.

Bobby got an hour against Nigeria and fab only ten mins today. Both now have a week to prepare for this. 

Netherlands away to Belarus, Scotland home to San Marino, both at 5 so hopefully robbo, virgil and gini come through unscathed so that'll be everyone bar the England lads back by the morning.

I’ve just seen Danny Mills (who I normally disagree with) on Sky doing his combined Liverpool/Mancs 11 - all eleven were Liverpool!! Haha

The United fans I know are in fucking meltdown!  

With what justification in all seriousness? Not fucking ONE of their lot would start for us, not one! Pogba, at his best and in form would, I suppose, but he's injured and woefully out of form.

It’s hilarious especially as Mills normally loves to big up the Mancs.

On present form not a single Manc would be in there , but you could argue that Pogba is a better player than Hendo / Gini , and Maguire v Matip is a contest. De Gea is on a steep descent & Wan-Bissaka definitely behind Trent.

    • Some people put out a depleted XI against Shrewsbury, others put out a depleted XI against Real Madrid.
    • Jürgen Klopp has a strong ally in his decision to give his senior players a week off during the scheduled winter break rather than play in the fourth round replay against Shrewsbury.

      Klopp has received some criticism in some quarters, but Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers spoke strongly in favour of the German. 

      The Echo reported the Northern Irishman as saying:

      “He's well within his rights to do that.

      “That's why you have your first-team squad, you have reserve players and why you have youth players.

      "I said a number of weeks ago that the load that is put on players and the pressure that some players have over the December, Christmas period, this week was designed (to help that).

      “It's not really you would say a break, but it's something at least for the players to have and to go away and recover a little bit.

      "To then organise the replays within that was ridiculous.

      Rodgers believes managers should have every right to pick their team because player welfare should be at the forefront of everyone’s minds.

      “Jurgen is within his rights to pick whatever team he wants to pick.   "If he's going to decide to rest all his players for the benefit of the club, because that's who he is employed by, then that's what he does and he has every right to do that."  

      Importantly, Gini Wijnaldum is also right behind his manager’s actions and spoke about how important this break is for a player. 

      'Since I've been in the Premier League I've played the season without a winter break but I also know, before I came to the Premier League, how good it is for a player to have some rest.

      'After the rest you can go again. Your body is more rested than if you keep on going, so that's a good thing.

      “As a player you want to be involved in every game there is but you also have to deal with your body and sometimes your body just says that it is not the right choice to do.

      'You just have to see how the situation is but if the manager decides that the younger players are going to play the game then we should accept it.'

      Former Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand understood the reasoning, but believed that Klopp should be on the touchline for the contest.

      "When you are a successful team, you are fighting on all fronts and Liverpool are doing that. I totally understand you have to shuffle your pack.

      “He wants to make sure his squad remains fresh and if he thinks he can get through to the next round with a younger team, then so be it. 

      “It's a great experience for those players.

      “The only issue I have and he's taking a liberty in some ways, is if he's not actually going to be in the dugout.
        “That's where I draw the line. I think the manager should be in the dugout for every game.   'It doesn't matter whether he's putting out a depleted squad or not."

    • I think our best possible "alternative" side should play. I reckon the "alternative" senior players should want to play - especially the ones who failed to impress yesterday. And I'd love it if Jurgen managed the game, and explained the reason for his turnaround: that his dedication and integrity in leading the club - and respecting paying fans - overrode his disillusionment with the convenient sense of propriety and inconsistency displayed by the nation's leading football bodies. That, to me, would be making an even bigger stand than the one he's currently planning on making.    
    • If only we'd got the job done yesterday... I'd be writing this in a non-existent thread.
