This is not a thread discrediting Pep, he has done very well. It is just relevant with Mourinho's comments on the spending. The squad Mourinho inherited was no where near good enough to challenge for the league. Out of the players in the squad, here are the players who had any experience in chall...

As a fairly young supporter of Manchester United (started watching football c. 2006), I have grown up with a dormant Liverpool and a successful City. The reason Liverpool and Manchester United are such great rivals is due to the success both sides have had. With the success from Liverpool having...

I know what you’re thinking, another City thread. Although it’s a Pep quote it’s not really about them. How completely simple and true is that statement? I’ve always believed attack is the best form of defence. LVG had the right idea but was too cautious in his approach and made largely terrible...

I am just wondering will we ever see United play with out and out width anymore - even the wide players we have now seem like converted forwards/ midfielders who want to cut inside all the time. Is the fear of ceding possession so high that we can't afford to let numbers drop in the centre channels?

He's our most consistent attacking player and someone who constantly puts crosses in for Lukaku to get on the end of. He's alright as a wing back if we play 3 at the back but he should start on the wing if we play a conventional back four so he can take on the defenders more frequently and get in...

The mixed state of our back four has really cost us this season. One area where I really felt we were strong has conspired to haunt us.

what’s the point of it when Young is the only one half decent at it? Even his crosses are wildly inconsistent. Rashford and Shaw down the left were abysmal as you just before they crossed it that it wasn’t going to amount to anything.
