Ferdinand heaped praise on leading Premier League scorer Kane, with the former United centre-back particularly pleased with the 24-year-old's link-up play. "I think Kane showed today why he's the best striker in the league and one of the most potent in Europe because he's bullied United's centre...

If we really need to purchase a new defensive line with players who are or may be willing to transfer, who would be your choices? LB CB CB RB How much would it cost?

Rumours heating up that this is on the way and that details will be revealed at E3. Hope it's true, as RDR is the best game I've EVER played. http://fraghero.com/rumor-red-dead-redemption-2-details-leaked-e3-reveal-planned/

Looking how inept we're away from home against better teams - why don't we just shore up the midfield and make it a real exercise for opposition to get past us? Could it work? DDG Bailly Jones Valencia Matic Shaw- Herrera Fellaini Pogba Lukaku/Martial Sanchez

For all his tactics and his post/pre match annoying excuses the main reason I was on board with Jose joining us was because we really desperately needed to win trophies. We were willing to sacrifice tactics, long term domination and all of that for the instantaneous manager who can get us to win...

We all wanted to see Sanchez in the team. But the issue is throwing a new player into a team when we are playing against a well-drilled top opponent away. Sanchez is not used to helping the team play out from the back, he doesn’t know each player enough to be able to know the runs they make, the...

Watching teams like Spurs and Liverpool doing their whole pressing thing really brings it home how few of our players are any good at tackling the opposition. You just don't often see Manchester United players crunch into a tackle and come up with the ball, leaving their opponent on his arse. Apa...

I’m not sure of the veracity of these claims, but I’ve read it numerous times. The Guardian done a piece on it two or three years ago and it’s been in other publications, but it’s basically seven principles that Jose lives by when it comes to the bigger games. They were first published in a biogr...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sp m-director-sparks-race-row-African-stars.html West Ham United have left themselves open to accusations of racism and potentially unlawful discrimination after telling agents in the transfer window that they don’t want to sign any more African players. After bei...

For me any side worth its salt tends to have the following ingredients (not-exhaustive but just off top of my head) in place to be a successful side and sustain it for a few years: Cohesive tactical Philosophy/Approach to the game both in an attacking an defensive sense, which is effective in the...

I find that since Fergie left, we rarely win a game where we concede the first goal. This is especially true against the bigger teams. It's become so frequent that I more or less prepare myself for defeat as soon as the first goal goes in. On the plus side, we almost never lose the game after we...

Not only due to form, more to try using a more explosive and mobile forward to lead the attack. Thoughts?

Now, before I start. Last night was grim. Have a moan by all means, I wasn't impressed. Tactics were wrong, system was wrong and the players couldn't be arsed. Oh, and Phil Jones. But some of us here take the moaning and dramas to a different level. It's pathetic. We're second in the league behin...

Find it quite staggering that we're so shockingly bad when teams press us. Surely, we have enough technical quality in our squad to play football under pressure? We have Matic, he showed us early on in the season that he's a deceptively decent dribbler and has good technique. Herrera, who was bri...

I mean, really aside from him conceding in the first 10 seconds tonight and leaving us on the back foot for over 90 minutes, I think having him in the squad makes both our manager and our players think that we just need 1 goal, or maybe if we're happy that day with a draw, no goals at all and...

This is something that has been apparent throughout Jose's tenure so far but there surely has to be an answer for it. We look clueless everytime we need to get back into a game and it's a well known fact that Mourinho doesn't coach attacking patterns. Eden Hazard alluded to this last season and t...

It's easy to have this kind of thread after a defeat, especially one like tonight. But what's been on my mind recently, even during the recent string of wins, is the fact that we don't seem to be very serious about clearing players out of this team who are not good enough to compete at the levels...

José Mourinho said: In midfield Michael Carrick will be not the No.16. Who will have Michael Carrick in his shirt next season, so we lose a player. It's there in midfield where we need to improve but to get a player to compensate the situation of Michael. If Fellaini leaves we have two gaps there...

No one wants to say it because he has ability and cost a shite load of money, but it's more true than the thread saying the same about Lukaku. Pogba is a playground footballer. Turns up to show off in games where the opposition are poor enough to allow us the luxury of him doing so. As soon as th...
