Attaboy!

I hope Ole doesn't have the problem with Pogba that Moyes had with Rooney. If Paul isn't playing well, looks tired or is on the verge of getting a red, you take him off. And right now all 3 seem to be the case.

Thankfully this time we kept a fucking clean sheet and we didn't sweat those missed chances.

The best news out of tonight, besides the clean sheet and the fact that we are 6 points away from Chelsea now, is that we won dirty. We'll need that trait later on.

We just need to get the best possible back 4 playing. Young, Smalling, Linde (who was majestic tonight) and Shaw. If we had them and a solid midfield pair, we would be playing 4-4-2 with Heskaku-Rash up front and Lingard-Martial on the wings and we would be raping teams. Icon_cool

On a final note, Valencia is finished. He's our damn club captain and he returned from injury overweight. Roy Keane always returned in the best possible shape. Gary Neville had the decency to retire when he couldn't hack it anymore. Valencia is still at the club because no one had the basic decency to get rid of him and the rest of the passengers we've been stuck with.

pogba & matic looked knackered near the end of game, something to be expected if you always played full 90 mins in fixtures like this. hopefully we'll see some change against Reading with Fred, Perreira play in their positions respectively. Sanchez also looks promising, with Martial seems little bit unfit due to effect of food poisoining, we might can put Sanchez on the left.
my team against Reading:
Romero
Dalot Lindelof Jones Young
Mata Perreira Fred
Lingard Lukaku Sanchez

Working today even though getting over a mild flu. Finished a little early so found a feed for the game around the 63rd minute! Glad I missed the early portion of the game. Definitely a scrappy win which should’ve been 4-0. Some serious fouling going on especially by that ahole Shelvey.

But 12 points out of 12, and Chelsea dropped points. Could have just gone home but I’m so into watching us play I actually stayed at the office. Once I started ignoring my staffs questions they figured out I was busy with United.

No doubt there. With a 3-4 year younger Matic pairing Pogba alongside your lineup we'd be rampant. The key to our season going forward though is going to be getting the most out of our back 4 and that means Tony and Jones don't play any more matches. Maybe we bring in a CB in the window or maybe we bring back a loanee, but we need better cover than those 2 accidents waiting to happen.

3 pts back of Arsenal, 6 pts back of Chelsea and finally into the double digit positive in goal differential. You have to think that a match like today would have been lost or at best drawn with the cunt still in charge. Hope is definitely still alive and teams are starting to get that fear back when facing us. Jan 13th can't come soon enough to see how far we've really come though.

I enjoyed seeing the grit when we faced our first challenge away from home since Ole. It was a big test for players and managers and both were patient and responded..

Not to get ahead of ourselves... ok fuck it, I'm jumping way ahead here! Currently on 38 points from 21 matches, that leaves us 17 matches or a possibility of 51 remaining points for a total of 89 points available to us. If we end up the season with a bang average of say 34 points from those 17 matches we'd be at 72 which in most seasons is borderline 4th place. The way we're playing I think we'll do better than that, anyone putting any money on Ole maintaining his winning streak through May?? Icon_cool

Attaboy. Icon_cool I am also very hooked into watching our games and following all the fallout. Such a stark difference compared to 3 weeks ago, when I barely watched the games!

We probably would have won the previous 3 under the Cunt with 2-1 scorelines or something. We definitely wouldn't have won this one. But then again, I may be giving him too much credit. It amazes me when people say Ole won the games Jose would have won anyway. Really? Jose not beating Brighton, Crystal Palace, Wolves and Southampton is the reason why we are in this place to begin with!

Speaking of the defence, if I was Woodward and Ole, I would troll Jose and pay Toby's buyout clause and sign him in January. He wouldn't solve all our problems, but he would be a better option than Jones or Bailly.

That was a relief because we were all wondering if Ole can games that don't go in our favor. Obviously we would love for everything to go our way from the opening whistle, but football doesn't work like that.

Now it will be interesting to see how Ole does against teams that are considered direct competitors. Like Spurs. We can't win those games with pretty football like we did the last 3 or with scrappy displays like we did last night. We'll need to defend better and limit their best players (along with playing attackingly). It's a delicate balance.

I mean, we could try to just go for it, but it won't work out well. We could beat Spurs in an open game, but City and Liverpool are a different animal.

72-75 will be a massive overachievement! We are currently set for less than 70.The good thing is that we have Chelsea, City and Liverpool at home, so we should pick up more point in those games than we did in the first round (1 point). It will also be a case of how the Champions League will affect us. We play Arsenal at the Emirates right after the second leg at Paris.

I just hope this isn't a honeymoon and we crumble after it wears off and the players stop being happy that Mourinho left. We deserve a happy ending to the season.

Costas- saw a report on Ole talking with Deadwood about possible transfers. In they mention we are looking for a CB and brought up Manolas from Roma. Based on what he’s done fir Greek National team. Do u think he would be an upgrade from what we have? What I read is he has done well at aroma. Just never rally seen him play tbh

I don't think we need him. If we are going to look at the CB pair as one guy who's more aggressive and one guy who's mopping up, Manolas belongs mostly in the second category. As does Lindelof, who's been very good this season. I feel we need a more combative defender who will command the penalty box. Somone like Sokratis, only better!

I'm not knocking the Greek lads (truth be told, Manolas and Sokratis are by far the best Greek players right now). I just feel that the next signing we make in defence should be from the very top shelf.

Cheers! I agree about needing a top shelf CB, if we can get one...
