    I do, I've been impressed with is willingness to speak English ever since his first press conference. Just think he could go easier on himself and speak Spanish on occasion.

    And people say we have a decent schedule with Leicester, Everton, Watford and Wolves away.

    After losing away to the number 10 of France.

    We might be ****ed.

    But luckily United have another fixture in the CL. That's good for us :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I thought we'd enjoy the Europa League cos we'd get to bully farmer teams but we can't even beat Renne ffs.

    We’ll score a couple, concede a couple I think.

    Everything with Emery seems hard work. Scoring 3 against a decent team looks a mountain.

    I would rather he just speak in Spanish and actually get the point he's trying to get across to everyone. I admire him for trying to speak in English but his English just isn't good enough yet to give proper responses to the questions . I'm happy to just read a translation If I need to

    But when the opposition start battering you and go into game of the season mode, you'll need outlets later again, but first you got to try and contain them, soak up the pressure and let them loose their steam. Then you go again.

    One of Mkhi/Iwobi had to go down, but I think not for a CM but for a RB. Because thinking about it again, instead of trying to get the centre tight with another CM, a RB and then a tight 441 to get each of the fullbacks a winger to help them defensively against Rennes' obvious tactic of exploiting the wings and congesting the pitch there could have been a good option.
    If you don't concede then for 15 minutes and force them to play a static game around a tightened defence instead of letting them run at you and move around you, Rennes loose their esteem. And then you hit them on the counter and you could have probably even made more use of Auba on the break.

    Missing the point.

    These Özil arguments are just annoying. People bemoaning his lack of application off the ball vs arguments about through balls.

    It’s like having a flatmate who doesn’t do any cleaning pointing out that they assemble all the new furniture.

    Unless you’re getting Messi numbers, there are basics that everyone must do.

    I wonder what language Emery speaks to the players. They still don't get it.

    You're missing the point. He does those basics and more, and better than almost everyone else. THAT was my point.

    These arguments are annoying though.

    Leicester, Everton and Watford will have nothing to play for by then. Wolves have dropped off after winning at Wembley in December.
    Considering the fact that United dropped points in 4 of the 6 league games following CL group games, it's true.

    I'm sorry, I'm just too easily triggered by Özil stuff now.

    I don't know if anyone thinks we're better off without Bellerin with AMN, Lichtsteiner and recently Jenkinson, Mustafi and now even Mkhi as the alternatives. But that doesn't mean it's Bellerin or bust down the line.

    I also underestimated the role of the fullbacks for this team, but that doesn't mean Bellerin should be glorified just 'cause he's the only solid RB at the club.

    lol you can basically see how Ramsey spots Sarr running down the wing and Guendouzi doing nothing and he immediately starts sprinting trying to catch him

    'He's 19 years old' might be something like a valid excuse.
