Some interesting names in the top 20. Bundesliga is the best attended league generally, it would seem. We really need to think about that stadium expansion though.

Now for those who listen to the United Hour podcast on the latest one I pointed out that the reason I believe Mkhi has been so ineffective is because Pogba being on the pitch gives him more freedom and space to run as well as Pogba being a fantastic passer. So with a small push from @Roosney I de...

Mourinho is getting a lot of stick for the way he sets us up.

It starts with the manager I suppose. Yesterday I couldn't understand his 2 substitutions at HT. Yes we were shockingly bad but we still had control of the ball and were much the superior side.

What will his game plan be against another top 6 team. So how does the nervous one play this. 5 points behind City with Spurs and Chelsea coming up we could be out of the title race after 11 games. Surely he has to go for it, 2 draws will not be enough.
