    Not
    Fred being the best rated player speaks volumes of how far we've come since then. :laugh:

    6 league losses in the last 57 games me thinks. Decent stuff when you look at it that way. Draws galore and home form... Not so much. :(

    We don't control.the tempo of the game enough to break teams down, and we don't use the width enough, as everyone is looking to cut inside.

    A proper DM who can win the midfield battle, and us actually playing Sancho out on the right, should help.

    Anyone else completely underwhelmed by Sancho?

    I know its early doors and he has been played on the left but he has hardly hit the ground running.

    If playing on the left is an excuse for offering next to nothing then you would have to question the massive fee.

    Like I say early days and hopefully we see some of his ability soon but so far been disappointing.

    He's shit. You should probably try and offload him on someone like Leicester for £35mill or so.... The mugs!

    No, he leads us in shot creating actions per 90 and that's despite having yet to settle into a new system with new team mates and a team that's changed every game. G/A will come.

    Wasn't he sick at the start of the season? 2 starts now,I think. A bit early to be underwhelmed or disappointed for me

    Pretty sure he can play on either side so that shouldn't be the reason.

    He just seems pretty tentative so far. Would like to see him try to make something happen more proactively than he has.

    Sancho is a right sided player and that was one of the positions needed to be addressed. Yet Ole seems to ignore that and plays him on the Left. Yes he can play on the left but the damage he did for Dortmund was on the right. Jess could've been playing on the left.

    He does look a bit tentative but I'm just wondering whether the arrival of Ronaldo has changed the tactics to targeting him only.

    A consistent run on the Right and I'm confident the Dortmund version will arrive very soon.

    Far too early to tell yet, but I never expected a world beater straight from the off, particularly considering our history with Bundesliga based players. But I think he'll come good for us.

    It is though, early days as you said. Every player has to be given a season before being judged, but I've certainly been underwhelmed thus far. :waiting

    didn't havertz only have like 1 goal in his first 20 or 25 matches or something? patience is needed with sancho. slow euros for him, joined up with united late in the summer, and didn't really get a preseason.

    Ole has to go and soon. Let's not argue this.

    I've had enough of seeing Greenwood on the wing, he simply doesn't have the fundamentals of wing play. Rashford is supposed to be back soon and I really want to see this front 4

    Sancho Bruno Rashford
    Ronaldo

    I thought it was unbelievable today that Ole brought Cavani on instead of Sancho when we weren't making good chances. Pogba and Greenwood both deserved to get pulled off the pitch had we not had the injuries to defence

    I couldn't believe he brought Cavani on when we had nobody crossing the ball into the box.

    exactly. between mcfred and greenwood's poor decision making, ronaldo didn't see the ball. another target man wasn't the way to go. we needed someone to progress the ball and create

    Ole could lose all these matches and will still be in charge.

    you really think so? i think fans being back will hurt him more than help him with performances and results like we've had this week
