  1. Agree nice to be linked with £45 million players from Barcelona but would be happier if we saw real progress with targets from Brentford or Bournemouth as time is short!
  2. This season Kelechi has looked so much better both in terms of goals and link up play. I am surprised the club would sell him on although the fact that he is never given consistent game time and substituted when playing well suggests this might happen.Agree he seems to fade in matches but he is a proven scorer. It terms of Edouard the price keeps going up and I don't know whether £40 million is realistic and how much better he is than Iheanacho at Premier League level?. I think Kelechi in the current market is worth more than the £25 million we paid by the way although I think he only has another year on his contract. Would not be happy if he is sold to Villa on the cheap, Sounds like money is tight if we have to sell to bring another striker in which is a bit of a worry
  3. There was talk of limited entry to games from October but I think this is wildly optimistic I also think there is every likelihood of a second wave of infection possibly not as bad as the first but enough to scrap any schemes that involve more than a few thousand in the ground. Sitting in the stands is only one factor - there is entry/exit /concourses/commuting/ making any noise that will generate an aerosol etc. Having said this I'm sure a small number of fans might be allowed in and the question then is the fairest way to do this.Not every season ticket holder will want to attend depending on age,health conditions and family circumstances and this should of course be respected. I'm sure the club with some up with a fair system allowing a certain number of games in a season and categorising the fixtures etc However I don't think season ticket payments will be going out any time soon. Lets hope for a vaccine by Christmas
  4. Centre Back Possibly another full back Winger Striker No more defensive midfielders although an experienced midfield general like Cambiasso would not go amiss! Most importantly new players must add something to what we have not just build the squad numbers..Hopefully targets have already been identified so we need to move early this time.
  5. Bit worried about next season after the last 10 games to be honest.We just don't look like scoring today whatever the statistics might say. Confidence needs sorting asap or we will really struggle next season and we surely need 4 or 5 quality signings which is a big ask without Champions League money. I'm not sure if the tactics were right or wrong today in terms of holding United until the final quarter and using hard working defensive players.Watching United in the first half they looked below par and nervous so I would say it was too negative.Last week however we were too attacking and open against Spurs of course so there is a risk you stop playing to your strengths worrying about the opposition.I thought Perez was unlucky not to start he is creative and gets the odd goal although he divides opinion on this forum.United fans were worried about Barnes but he didn't get a starting place.How we lost 2-0 is still a bit of a mystery but you could say the same v Bournemouth and Spurs.
  6. If Albrighton is fit I think Rodgers might start ahead of Barnes for his crossing ability and defensive quality/work rate.I have to say Barnes or Vardy vs Maguire would be interesting I think Perez should start he has looked as good as anyone over the last few weeks. Presume we are going for a back 4 after a back 3 has conceded so many in recent games? Problem is that even if we went a goal up with a minute to go I would be worried as happened against Watford so I think we will need a couple of goals whilst keeping them out. At least we are underdogs hope that psychology works in our favour and takes a bit of weight off the shoulders.Think of it as a cup game keep our shape and be a bit more in their faces and hope for the best.
  7. Most important thing is to start well. If we go a goal down early and the game gets stretched we have no chance. We need to be a bit more savvy than against Spurs when our wing backs were caught way up the pitch and the back 3 were exposed. Presume it will be a back 4 this time so annoying that we have so few choices at the back. However I think United will be nervous and the longer it remains 0-0 the more chance we have.I can see Tielemans or Perez setting up something during the game for Vardy or maybe Barnes will break his goal drought or something will deflect in . 1-0 will do and I wouldn't be surprised if Wolves get something at Chelsea so I draw could be enough you never know.
  8. On paper with a depleted squad would say 3-1 to United. However, I've been wrong so many times in the past and we know Jamie usually does well against United. Hoping we can forget about the points dropped, live in the present and really go for it.
  9. All 3 goals were very similar with lack of closing down and covering on the right side of the defence.We know Kane likes playing against us and if you give him room he can be world class. We have really missed Ricardo but need a quality defender not to mention a winger and striker before the start of the new season . I'm worried that this poor form will spill into the new season and Rodgers will come under immediate pressure.I was disappointed that we didn't strengthen in January but need 3 or 4 during the summer and we cannot afford to lose our best players either.
  10. Would take a draw without a doubt given our record away at Spurs. That would mean a win against United would do very nicely.If we get thumped today it is going to make things very difficult as we may need to win the final match by 2 or 3 goals.
  11. Confident lively player who was a threat when he played against us. I think he would be a good addition and will get a few goals as well.He won't be cheap but he is young and I would be in favour. I'm pretty sure the manager will have spoken to Maddison about him.
  12. Nice comment from John Percy in the Telegraph that we have cornered the market for left backs. Obviously Spurs and United will be massive tests but he showed huge maturity for his age. Looked like the Blades thought they could exploit the loss of Chilwell early on but soon realised that was not going to happen
  13. Kane and Son have a good record against us and we will struggle if the game gets stretched. If we can frustrate them and get something late on like we did in 2016 that would be a huge bonus. Important we don’t collapse like we did against Bournemouth because goal difference may be key going into the last game
  14. We do need a leader out there to steady the ship. I think the team has lost self belief and started to worry too much about the opposition and this has affected the manager with more defensive type substitutions as we had at half time yesterday. We need a 90 minute performance and 3 points against Sheffield United otherwise there will be intense pressure on Rodgers but I am still hopeful he can turn things around but may be too late for Champions League
  15. Only one goal in it but back 3 not working so Fuchs to come in and maybe Barnes . We have to go for it if we let Arsenal settle can see us conceding another couple
