I mean seriously we must be the only club that would pay £50m for a player then he can’t even make the first 11. Especially when the likes of Fellaini and McTominay are preferred options. Why did we buy him if he isn’t good enough to come straight into the first 11? If he’s not settling quickly s...

Maybe this isn't 100% accurate but we've only seen glimpses of our quality. I hope today we saw why Sarri made this claim. As a team we have a lot of improvements to make but when we have the players to hurt any team in the world. We should remember this.

It's difficult to control for all of the additional variables (prior form, budget, initial team quality) but let's put that to the side initially, and just look at the peaks in United's history.

We must be one of the only sides left in the Premier League that refuses to use our goalkeeper to play out and it must surely be tactic. 95% of the time DDG gets the ball to feet it's just hoof and makes it so difficult for us to keep hold of the ball for long periods. Simply press United,...

I argued at the time that Rooney, although still a very good player, lost an enormous amount of edge with the subsequent foot injuries.

Rated as one of the hottest prospects in the game a few years ago and one of the most coveted players out there. 'Un-trasferable' given the team who he plays for, but he rarely gets mentioned in the same way he used to and it doesn't seem like he's kicked on at all from his younger days. Is this...
