The manager said to keep going and Felipe has popped up with two superb goals.”The first half of the season is out of the way. We are setting ourselves up for a good second half.”Aaron Cresswell said of teammate Anderson: “He’s been fantastic and hopefully that continues.”It was a tough start, losing the first four games, but he’s been our in-form man and is our top goalscorer.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

In the set-pieces they are a massive, tall team.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

    first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Why Greenwood played on wingby Paul Vegas21 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why he picked Mason Greenwood on the wing for their 0-0 draw at AZ Alkmaar.Greenwood started the game on the right wing before moving into his more natural centre-forward role which was being occupied by Daniel James.United didn’t manage a shot on target throughout the whole of a dismal 90 minutes in Holland which saw them move on to four points from their first two Europa League group-stage fixtures.”Stretch opponents,” Solskjaer explained. “He stretches them. We never got to grips with the astro turf until second-half. First-half, we took some time before we got control of the ball and the game.”Dan can play down the middle, he has done before, that was a tactical tweak we tried. Of course, Mason’s more natural as a centre forward so we swapped them around.” last_img read more

    first_img​Ex-Man Utd keeper Bosnich: Mistake not replacing Lukakuby Ansser Sadiq16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich believes that not replacing Romelu Lukaku was a significant mistake.The Red Devils sold Lukaku to Inter Milan for a sizeable fee in the summer.They also allowed winger Alexis Sanchez to leave to the Italian club on loan.But no attacking players were signed in the summer, apart from Championship winger Daniel James from Swansea. And Bosnich believes that was a mistake.”Let’s be really frank, the recruitment has been poor over the past three or four years,” Bosnich told Omnisport.”Regardless of what the personal situation was, it was a mistake to let Lukaku go without having a ready-made replacement to come in. Especially at that stage of the season.”They didn’t [sign a replacement for Lukaku] and now Martial, Rashford and all of them have to find their spirit, find their soul and fight back.”There’s no use just sort of turning up at training, doing your job, going to the game, hiding, hoping that you don’t get any criticism and picking up your wages. That doesn’t work at a club like Manchester United.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

We have to wait, find our place and then take our chance.”He added: “They have good attacking players like Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alex Iwobi, [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and a young player I heard a lot about when I was in Juventus and he was in the Academy, Moise Kean, who has a lot of skills and is very strong. But we just have to focus on our jobs and getting the three points.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
