    A new striker in January.

    Morata, Giroud, Bats and Abraham are not enough for us now. Pity

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I think what you're seeing is the instinct left by Conte that you dont abandon your defensive post. It takes time to re-wire people. I also feel like Sarri doesn't implament much progression in the middle and like Conte focuses attack progression on the wings and half spaces.

    Eden Hazard

    Just comparing this season to Salah last season. If Eden is the best in the world now surely Salah was about 11 months ago. Until Eden scores like this long term I'm holding back on calling him the best in the world.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Forgot Kante in the Hazard thread when I mentioned he could win Ballon D'or. Kante should be in the running this season. He makes every team he's in better and you can see the evidence when his teammates aren't the same without him. Pogba would probably give half his salary to have Kante next to him at United.

    Eden Hazard

    Wont be the best until he proves it. Same with Salah last season, sure they may hit a purple patch but it has to be a continual thing. Best right now will do for us however. Eden has the potential and I never thought he was that far off from Messi since he's been here except for consistency. If he carries on scoring like this for the season there's no way to turn him down for Ballon D'or next year. If he carries on it will likely mean Chelsea end up with at least 2 trophies between now and next December

    How should we treat the Europa league?

    To piggy back on the GK situation, I think this is the best situation you'll ever see to give a 3rd keeper minutes. Mr. Bulka deserves time on the pitch off his preseason performances. That will mean we have 3 different keepers start in a given week but let's be honest, Willy will be here 1 more season maximum and we'll be in for another backup unless we test Bulka and prove he's capable or not in competitive situations. Green should never see the field for us. Period. He's only 3rd in terms of wages at this point. #EuropaBulka
  7. For reasons already stated I doubt this hurts us much. Just means the likes of Kalas, Omuero, Piazon and Hector dont stay on the books. We may miss on a late bloomer because of it but we generally tend to sell 22 or 23 year olds who have talent anyway. Chalobah, Ake and Traore come to mind. One positive may be that we stop loaning these talents once they hit 21 and keep them in the squad which could save us from plopping down 30m on the Danny Drinkwaters of the world.

    You said it. Team full of players who have won nothing and a manager who has won nothing. They have to win something or their best will leave. Imagine you're Kane and you have nothing to show for 3 years of dominating, Erikson as well. I'd be surprised if they win a trophy and even more surprised if they hold on to Poch, Kane and Erikson.

    He's got almost exactly the squad he wants. He kinda wants another winger and CB but he's overseen 2 new CB signings and Sanchez to go along with Martial and Rashford so it's not like there's a lack of talent there. I think he's on the verge of losing most of the players' confidence and even though he came out in an aggressive shape it wont last long

    Also fair to raise the question, how long will Poch stay if they keep it up? Is it crazy to believe he could be in charge of United this time next season?

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Exactly. He didn't do it, hence the concern he wouldn't here. Conte was bad at this as well here.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    "Here the problem is the bench because, in Italy, the players’ list for the match is 23; here only 18. It’s not so easy in this period because we play only once a week. But I told the team that this month they have to be patient. In the future, starting from September, I think we play three times three games a week, so there will be space for everybody.” One of my biggest concerns was his lack of rotation at Napoli. Hopefully he serious about this and some of our younger 1st team players see chances.

    Jose Mourinho thread

    The topic of Jose has pulled us down to new depths with this
  14. Brendan's side drew away to some Lithuanian team I've never heard of ahead of the Europa group stages. If they don't make the groups... wow

    Jose Mourinho thread

    No one could ever instill that mentality at United. Failed from the get go.
