    The biggest problem with Jose now is that out of all the big 6 teams, we seem to be the only one who doesn't press the ball. We lose it and retreat. Doesn't seem to be working at all and every shred of confidence our attacking (and seemingly defending now) players we have has been gone long ago. He has to go. It's not gonna change. Wish it could turn around for him as I like Jose, always have!

    To be fair, the last game we pressed high up the pitch and pressed well for at least the first half, the pundits were actually talking about it during half time as the most pressing we've seen since SAF left, or something to that effect.

    I agree I'd like to see a new motivating manager but I have concerns about how good a player we can bring in at the moment as it seems like we can't get players to join United unless we have a high profile manager. I know Zidane is available but I'm not really sure he's the fit for us... but I'd give him a shot, I guess.
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!

    I'm open to giving any attacking coach with some pedigree a shot at this stage. Someone like Poch would be ideal but even someone like Marco Silva I'd take a punt on. Zidane could work out but then he worked with a team infinitely better than ours. If it went wrong we'd be in a bigger mess than we are now.

    Been thinking about it and I suppose all we can do now is get behind the manager because it doesn't look like he's going anywhere. I'd just like to see him try new things.

    Me too. He played attacking football at Real Madrid, so it's not like it's impossible. I don't know what's going on to be honest.

    On my way back from Leicester v Liverpool. Proud to say I was there the day Allisson became a true Liverpool keeper.

    Also Harry Maguire and James Maddison are immense and could both easily play for any team in the league.

    PSG are truly smurfing awful and I can't believe they got away with just a 3-2. Thank the lord for Punished Venom Bobby.

    It's still hard for me to wrap my head around how good James` Milner has been all year and honestly, since he came to the club. Between him and Andy Robertson, I wonder if they run wind sprints after the game just to make sure they get all their steps in.

    Contrast that with Neymar, who seemed allergic to tracking back at all. Time after time, we could just ping the ball to TAA who was all alone since Neymar would not come back beyond the halfway line. I recall him being screamed at when he was at Barca for not playing both ends and it only seems like those tendencies have gotten worse at PSG.

    I refuse to get too, too giddy about this season so far but Klopp really has this team fighting for every blade of grass and they never put their heads down. What a joy to watch.

    Also, Leo Messi.... still pretty much the GOAT. Your move Cristiano.

    And happy birthday to American's savior, don't let the weight of expectations get too heavy.

    Take care all.
