6 players from that line up are not playing and 2 of them gone we changed alot of things this summer and we not done yet. About playing manutd our record with them is good it's not like Liverpool or city where most fans completely give up before the game start we have chance of 3 points every time we play them because it's 50/50 no much separate both sidesIn theory, we have upgraded the GK, a CB, the RB, a CM and the RWF. They have a better attack on paper but this is a real chance for us to beat them. It's time to break the cycle of losing to no name opponents.
Agree on the midfield. I've seen enough from all three to know that they can each provide enough forwards passes or runs to help attack whist doing a decent defensive job. We'll need to match the physicality of McTominay and Fred and go toe to toe.Yeah even against Leicester we played well for 20 minutes, but they were the better side for the rest. I think Arteta made a mistake omitting AMN for the last two games. He's a perfect fit for this type of match - his recovery runs are elite and he offers great cover for full backs when they bomb forward. Would be keen to see him in a midfield 3 with Lokonga and Partey.
In what way did he dominate? if anything our matches against United mirror our decline football wise despite the results
An organized 2-0 win on the first match, then next season with Artetaball settled in a historic but awful win that didn't happen due to domination but due to Pogba gifting us a penalty, and then a lucky 0-0 draw that should have been a 3-0 win to United the way the match developed.
The good news is this season we seem to be able to take advantage of those sides into disarray (Sp**s, Villa, Watford, Newcastle), and fortunately for us United is another one of them
I think it's a sympathy tribute for a club legend who failed rather than a tribute for the celebration of his achievements. Like a funeral service.
£7 million quid is a significant chunk of his lifetime's earnings. Other football people who give that kind of money also deserve to be praised.No, it doesnt. Rich football people do that all the time. He received that money because he was a terrible manager so its just awkward.
Even if he invested well, I would be stunned if he was in a position to give away that much money. He made relative peanuts as a player compared to what they earn today and he hasn't been earning a large managerial salary long enough to have that much socked away from football. It sounds made up. 7 million would be a lot even for Mourinho or Pep to give away and they've both been earning a fortune for at least a decade.
