He’ll be the fastest player in the league but his end product needs work. They should send him out on loan for a season because he’s still very inexperienced. Ideally back to us...

I'm looking forward to seeing him in a United shirt. I doubt he'll be an instant starter, but he should be pushing Lingard and Mata for a position on the flank. Ideally I'd like to see him and Chong share right-wing duty, particularly in the Europa League - all those extra games this season should be put to good use for blooding the youngsters.

Meh, it's brought United fans the most joy of the past few years, Stockholm is one of the few highlights to comment on :lol:

Ahh yes Napoli were not happy about that one. Would be funny if they got drawn in same group again but this time with Liverpool top and Napoli second seeds.

That’s a real shame, 49 is no age to go.

Hazard off to Madrid, not going to lie I'll be glad to see the back of him. Amazing footballer but he's carried Chelsea for years and I feel now they'll slip away for a season or two. They're too rich to drop away completely but they're a club I have no love for and would like to be less of a threat, so great. Bye bye Hazard, you have at times been a joy to watch. Let's just hope he doesn't win Real Madrid the Champions League next season.

Watching DJ has been among the more exciting points of the season and he deserves his chance but I worry there’s not a whole lot more there than pace. Loads of mates were asking about him towards the end of January after the Leeds link and I told them all he can’t finish To save his life. The amount of times he’d burst through the defence and then roll the ball to the keeper. Even when the goals started to go in, against Brum and Brentford, it was more down to poor keeping. Then as the season went on you could see he was working on it. It felt like for 3-4 home games in a row he was cutting in from the left and going for the top right hand corner, getting closer each week until hitting That beauty against Stoke. That seemed to be the end of his season though, for the remaining games he went back to his earlier ways of being exciting to watch without anything coming from it.

PostRe: The Football Thread 2018-19 - End of Season Review pg 315
by Festivus Maximus » Mon Jun 10, 2019 10:46 am

Figured we could do a simple end of season review for our teams...

Team: Manchester United
Final Position: 6th :lol:
Highlight of the season: The good run when Ole was at the wheel (before the bus crashed), culminating in that glorious night in Paris :wub:
Lowlight of the season: Getting thoroughly battered and schooled by Liverpool in Jose's last game. A dark day for the club and the point of no return for Mr. Mourinho :dread:
Player of the season: Paul Pogba - despite his flaws and bad-eggyness, he did still top the charts in most categories for United this season. Honourable mention goes to Victor Lindelof for being half-decent.
Worst player of the season: Ashley Young - fire him into the sun and be done with this madness.
Young player of the season: Marcus Rashford... I guess.
Manager rating: Jose - 2/10 :fp: . Ole - 6/10 :|
Overall season rating: 5/10 - wretched :lol:
