Even going into this game with at least 9 starters out with injuries I have confidence that we will come away from Selhurst Park with 3 points. This will be a test for Ole, is seams like every week is yet another test for Ole, and it would not surprise me one bit if we come out all guns blazing in an attempt to put Palace going backwards.

I mean I'm sure we'll play on the front foot but who do we start. The pile kicked us and I don't even know who will start except the ba k 5.

DDG

Young. Smalling. Lindelof. Shaw

Fred. Mctom. Pogba


Rashford. Lukaku. Sanchez


I don't know as if rash will even start after being kicked by the dirty pile.

Prediction : Away win 0-3. I think we'll have way too much for palace.

I think it will be a tough game, with our B side playing an organised Palace.
Lets hope Arizona is right though, and we Snatchez a goal! :laugh:

Well let's see if some other midfielder takes the mantle. We will need it for next week tough game.

We need to play at a high tempo and keep the standards that this team has set.

Hopefully there will be no more injuries else DDG will have to play outfield.

Seriously, Ole, the way he adapts game to game, he's proving every concern wrong. It honestly feels like we're back in the Fergie days

I just have to say that Ole is a genius, after that pile game where we lost players we had this tricky game.

The first goal was passed into the net almost a Ole like finish, second goal and then a bit of a scare.

But what do we do we still we still go for the third and we deserved this victory.

Tactical genius this Ole is becoming.

Good win, better performance but 4-3-3 will not bring out the best in Pogba. Nevertheless, I'm glad Fred got a run out, a bit rusty at the beginning thou. I'm hoping to see Fred, Mctominay and Perreira in midfield more often. It was blatantly clear that our tempo/performance was more sustained throughout the game.

Unless Herarra is injured he has to be a first pick in midfield on form, and I would pick him over any of thsoe three you suggest

Good win against very poor opposition

The usual symptons all showed themselves
As Dante said earlier "This Lukaku is rubbish".Well yes i sort of agree.I would use the words "very average"
He had nobody marking him the entire game
It was his first goals for 10 games which is hardly a good return for a so called top striker.He missed 2 very easy chances before he scored and as usual he scored against a team that will consider they have had a very successful season if they are not relegated
However if he is a player that floats your boat i am happy for you
I prefer the likes of Mbappe and Aquero or Andy Cole or Dwight Yorke or RVN or even Ole

On the assumption that Josie bought Fred he has wasted the Glazer money(After all it wouldn't/couldn't have been Ed Woodward could it :laugh: :laugh: )
You might call him rusty.I would use the word anonymous at best and rubbish at worst.He had no influence on last nights game

Palace,poor as they were still had 3 or 4 very good chances caused by very poor centre half defending

Nothing is guaranteed in football and you do get some daft results and are not guaranteed to win all the games you should but this was one that you would put in the "really should win" catergory
And win we did

I didn't think we'd win, but credit to the boys.. 3 points and 3 goals.. credit to the lads

I can't make my mind about Fred.. we just don't have good luck with south americans

That game plan has Sir Alex Fergusson’s fingerprints all over it. Before anyone jumps to the conclusion that I am suggesting that Sir Alex is running the show, let me say that I do not for one minute believe that is the case - Ole is defiantly his own man. Ole has spent 14+ years working for and with Sir Alex and he has learned a hell of a lot from those 14 years.

Even before Lukaku’s goals each side of the halftime we had the game fully in control and only a comedy of errors on defense got the score back to 1 - 2 and gave Palace some hope. The substitutions where a stokes of brilliance, my first assumption after seeing who was coming on was that we were going to 5 at the back and two upfront. Instead Ole was going for a third goal and it didn’t take long to get the game clinching goal.

Random thoughts on the game
• Ole is a great manager for United and is growing better with each game.
• It was good to see Fred get a chance to show why Mourinho wanted him. He appeared a little lost in the first half playing further back than I think he is used to, in the second half he was more forward and appeared much more comfortable - a two goal lead will do that.
• McTominay had a really good game protecting the back four, breaking up Palaces play in midfield and helping out on the attack.
• The last few games Shaw has come into his own and started to look lie the player we all hoped he would be when Van Gaal brought him in.
• Sanchez was active, but not very effective, on defense but a passenger on offense. If Sanchez is going to play on the left side, then Pogba has to be on the right otherwise they end up in the same place.
• Pogba had a truly team game today doing whatever he had to do wherever on the pitch for the team, one of his best performance for United.
• Playing Dalot upfront worked out well for us, I don’t think that will be his long-term position but filling in as needed he worked out well.
• It was great to see James Garner (Maverick) get some first team action :clap: .


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