    Wolves H Post Match Thread 2-0

    Happy with the result but to be honest I don't really think we played that well at all (although we did defend well with 10 men). We started far too slowly again and could easily have found ourselves behind. Evans in particular looked very poor, although I think we should cut him some slack as it's his first game, etc. For me nobody had a brilliant game, but Pereira looked dangerous and I think he'll be a big player for us this year. As for Wolves - they clearly have some good players, and I think they will be OK this year. Onwards and upwards, I think we should be good when the new players have bedded in a bit more...although I really hope CP settles on a first team ASAP, he shouldn't change the team every week like he did tail end of last season.

    Wolves Pre-Match Thread, 18th Aug

    Personally I don't think Amartey played that badly at Man Utd (and it wasn't a penalty). However I think he'll be dropped, with Pereira moving to RB. Evans should come in for Morgan alongside Maguire. Vardy will come in for Iheanacho I'm sure, unless he decides to play two upfront... I agree that Ghezzal will probably play ahead of Albighton on the left, not sure how I feel about that.

    Man U 2-,Leicester 1 post match thread.

    Overall I thought it was an encouraging performance, thought we deserved a draw. Chilwell and Gray got themselves into some good positions, but their final ball is still very poor. I'm also getting frustrated with Silva, keeps giving the ball away and keeping the ball far too long. But happy overall and I think we should (touch wood) beat Wolves next week.

    Chilwell and Gray were not outstanding. I agree about Pereira though - our best player yesterday I thought.

    Yes it is a slight worry for me as well. If Slimani leaves then our only strikers will be Vardy, Iheanacho and Okazaki. None of them provides much of an aerial threat at all.

    Premier League Thread 2018/19 stuff it in here.

    Easy to look at big spending elsewhere and get worried, but I'm fairly happy with our window. Our debacle in 2016 has left me deeply sceptical about the idea that you can suddenly improve a squad with a glut of big-money transfers, particularly if the players you are buying have never played in the PL before. For the promoted sides it means leaving out players who achieved promotion together; for the others, it means denying places for young/academy players. Everton and West Ham have raised expectations massively for their seasons because of all the spending, but will it actually help?

    Manchester United Away Pre Match Thread

    I'm not sure why but I still reckon at least one of Evans/Maguire will play. If I had to put money on it now I'd say our most likely partnership will be Evans and Morgan. I do think we will lose but I'm hopeful it won't be a battering.

    Manchester United Away Pre Match Thread

    Tbh I now almost expect Evans to play if it's true that he was back in training last week... Maguire might not - but at least Evans/Morgan is less scary than Benny/Morgan. I agree with the rest of it - but I suspect he will go for Iborra to start instead of Silva. Which is a shame because I think Iborra has looked poor in pre-season but I think Puel will prefer to have a bigger player in the midfield, Mourinho's teams are always quite physically strong

    I agree with this. Frankly there was something wrong about the ease with with the club/fans welcomed him back after his tantrum. In the latter half of the season he also essentially gave up trying to defend, but no one seemed to care or get on his back.

    Manchester United Away Pre Match Thread

    I think once it becomes clear their WC players are going to play, it will be more difficult for Puel not to play them. Personally given Iheanacho's form I'd be happy for Vardy to start on the bench, given our defence at the minute it's a much bigger priority that Maguire plays. May not happen but I still haven't given up hope we could see Maguire & Evans tbh.

    Thank you, Andy King.

    Yeah but what's the alternative? It's up to the manager to pick the team, and King doesn't feature in his plans. I feel like for professional pride if nothing else King should have left a couple of seasons ago to find regular football. He's obviously within his rights to stay as a squad player and pick up his wages - but as others have said, we're not a charity at the end of the day.

    Lille 5.05BST away Pre-season match thread.

    So that's Evans, Maddison, Silva and (presumably) Gray who've picked up injuries pre-season. A bit worrying tbh.

    Lille 5.05BST away Pre-season match thread.

    That team tells me we've reached the end of pre-season and Puel still doesn't know what his first team is. I know the World Cup has complicated things this year but it's pretty worrying.

    Maguire and Vardy

    I don't have any problem with them taking the mandated three-week holiday. Equally, I'm sure both of them will want to play at Old Trafford. There's no law that says they can't do both - and any decision not to play them is a matter for Puel, not them. If he decides not to play them because they've 'only' had a week with the squad pre-season then that's his call - and he will have to take responsibility for whatever happens.
