Yeah good that others clubs were not interested, at least made it easier for us. He agreed everything with Spurs last summer and they didn't meet the asking price.

By luck or good planning, things are falling in right places for us finally. Hopefully we make few more right additions next season.

A bit off topic, but what's the current situation with Pogba? I haven't read a rumour about him in a while.

Yous just need to sort your backline out this summer. Attack looks fine, midfield if you keep pobga should be OK, another very good CB and LB and yous will look solid again.

We need one more CB who has pace and can head the ball to play alongside Maguire. For now LB is not priority as Shaw is playing well, AWB is a beast anyways. CB, DM as Matic is not getting any younger, both Fred and McTominay are not DMs and most importantly right winger.

Tbh our defensive record is very good in this 16 game run, the goals we conceded are more to do with GK blunders like De Gea kicking the ball against striker resulting in goal, De Gea getting beaten easily for Spurs goal, Romero rushing out to no mans land. We need CB for sure, Lindelof is ok but we need better than him.

A bit off topic, but what's the current situation with Pogba? I haven't read a rumour about him in a while.

Not many rumors about him leaving now, few reports that Pogba is very happy now and is enjoying playing alongside Bruno. IMO he will stay if we show intention this summer, otherwise we might lose him in 2021 summer as there won't be any club who will pay the asking price this season.

Man Utd need quite a few top class signings to compete with the likes of Man City and especially Liverpool. Even Chelsea have made two great signings with Werner and Ziyech despite possibly losing Willian.

Signing Sancho would be a good start and here the rumours are mainly linking him towards Man Utd.

Manutd became the first team in PL history to win 4 consecutive games with 3 or more goals.

We are playing really well, just have to hope this is not false dawn. We need consistency from players.

Greenwood will be a star. 8 starts + 19 sub appearances, 1000 mins - 9 goals and 1 assist. Barely any tap ins (dont remember any except vs Sheffield United).

In Europa he has 5 goals + 1 assist in 460 mins.

He has added muscles during the lockdown, looks physically strong player and he is proper 2 footed player.

Yeah team is playing well, like the first period during OGS reign. Pk was fishy and I quite was surprised it got upheld tbh :lol:

They need to maintain but like I said before, one of those strikers needs to step up and perform at world class levels (or buy a world class one) or else manU will just be playing for 2-4 instead of first.

Been waiting for this for years.

Hopefully they stick around. They make the league interesting.

I had a soft spot for them since early 2000s. I am glad they have returned.

I didn't watch or interested in them since they disappeared from the EPL, but a couple of years ago I read on news that they hired Bielsa, it's then I realized how long they were out of the top tier.

Leicester losing @spurs atm. Currently, ManU having strong CL qualification chances if it stays like that. Week 38 is Leicester-Manu. H2h in favor of ManU with a 1-0 in OldTrafford.

I had to read the article on the official site a couple of times, because the explanation is a tad convoluted, but anyway, head to head matches in Premier League from this season can be a tie-breaker, but only after the overall goal difference and the overall goals scored:

https://www.premierleague.com/news/1262217


"In 2019/20 the team who have collected the most points in the head-to-head duels between the sides lying level on points, goal difference and number of goals scored, will take the highest finishing position, while the team with the fewest will take the lowest place".

I was rooting for an Anschluss scenario to happen to Chelsea on the final day of the season, but with this Leicester result, that's not going to happen. Still going to hope for it to be Man Utd and Leicester who get the spots but that took a big hit today.

Classic De Gea :lol: should have been an easy save but lets it in.

Strange first half which lasted 57 minutes due to Baily getting into two head collisions.

- - - Updated - - -

Lmaoooo De Gea at it again :lol:

You can't make this shit up. 2-0 to Chelsea.

Should be 0-0 but De Gea spills to shots into the net.

3-0 Chelsea heading to the FA cup final.
