Review

8 out of 8. Beating two top 6 teams and it's no less than we deserve.

Both teams fielded very strongs teams and it was a compressive victory for us. Goals by Sanchez, Lingaard and Martial gave us a good win.

The high press and we don't really give fouls away near our penalty area. Scoring goals and playing with some style as well.

On to the next. We in the 5th round of the FA Cup now.

He MUST stay. He's the right manager for Manchester United.

Not sure how long Ole and the boys can keep this run going but I'm pretty sure that in the future its already going to be right up there with some of the brighter spots in the clubs history.

God I've missed watching us play like we did today :clap: :clap: :clap:

Really good win and enjoyable to watch. Two top 6 team scalps in away matches, that’s an important fact.

Strange how everyone on this site, in the media and the ex pro’s have berated this group of players.......these results explode every football cliche ever spoken or written hahaha

They were written off when they showed nothing and rightly being praised for what they are showing in this new system.
I wonder how much SAF has to do with all this to be honest. So De ja vu!

I know I may get slated for this, but I thought Lindelhof and Bailly looked better together as the game went on, it wasn't all edge of the seat stuff like it is with Mike and Calamity. Even when clamity came on at RB, he seemed to do quite well.

Hi guys.
Haven't posted in a while as I frankly found United too depressing.
I have MU TV but did not bother watching 'highlights' or anything.

The point I want to make is that we should clear our heads of preconceptions like 'Calamity' Jones

We don't even know what players we have as Jose destroyed them.

The nearest I ever came to being decent at a game was pool, and you have to play your game.
If you are not allowed to take the shots that come naturally to you, in a flow, you will do rubbish.

All our players were inhibited from playing their game.

The one I noticed that most with is Matic, although he is a strong Jose supporter.

He used to play little but sideways and back passes, but now comes out with some lovely attacking through balls.

I really did not know that he could see that sort of pass.

Lindehoff is our most improved defender, and was immense last night.

Bailly also did not look like a frustrated all in wrestler always on the verge of being sent off.

We probably still do need a Van Dijk if we can find one in the summer, but we have no idea what Ole will manage to drag out of the people we have.

It is great to have United back

Ole literally resurrected the United Spirit ..

Under Jose when the score was 1-2 he would have shut up shop. But this new style is to hunt goals

I never wanted Jose as United manager, as in my view he played his team in a kind of anti-football.

Never having played he approached the game as though it were chess, moving his pieces around.

So his technique was to buy 'the best' players, then ignore the their subtle understanding of the game which enabled them.

He could never deal with real flair players like Hazard or Ronaldo, and could not develop young players, as he was interested in the machine under his control.

So he excelled in getting the most out of fundamentally the fundamentally rather mediocre and defensive minded.

He also acted like acid eroding the game of flair players and play, so that his 3 year tenure everywhere was inherent in his approach with the personal fallings out a symptom of his negative and mechanistic approach.

I just watched the press conference of Ole, and the joy and love of football shone.

We are branded glory hunters, but I would sooner lose under Ole than win under Jose.

Winning under Ole is of course even better.

Ole is about the joy of football in his press conferences and elsewhere.

Jose is all about him, football is just a vehicle for his personal triumphs.

I don’t want to get carried away, after all it was only Arsenal, but after a while I to ask myself; who could get more out of these players than Ole has. More important for me, is that Ole has molded these players into a team again. For far too many games in the first half of the season we look like 11 fellows who met in a pub 30 minutes prior to kickoff. On the pitch it was 11 individuals looking for a stroke of brilliance from someone, now we are playing like we actually have a plan to score goals instead of a mindset of; if we stop them from scoring, we are guaranteed at lest one point.

What points out the difference more than anything else for me,

An away game second half leading by a goal:
Under Mourinho; Lukaku off - Fellaini on, Sanchez off - McTominay on
Under Ole; Lukaku off - Rashford on, Sanchez off - Martial on

Long may this train keep rolling.


I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.
