Last time we played was the 2-1 that was a nervy twitchy last 20 minutes:


Ole has to get his United team to play like the first 45 minutes against Partizan when we play at Old Trafford. Becoming dominant at home is something that we could do relatively easily if we just maintained the confidence to do it.

Late tests for McTominay and Lindelof. Have to say, Rojo has been surprisingly consistent when called up for duty this season.

There's no doubt we need some steel in there Bert. Maguire has gone off the boil a bit. And teams seem to play towards Lindalof to get him under pressure. He's quite easily rattled and piss poor in the air. Where as Rocky has a lot more bollocks about him.
I have my doubts about Maguire. Leicester must have been laughing their collective cocks off when we paid £80 million for him. He's a decent enough centre-half but he's nowhere near as good as VVD. Hell, in comparing him with past central defenders, he's not a patch on a Rio, a Pallister, a McQueen, or a Stam. As usual, we got ripped off. Woodward is so fucking incompetent. Other clubs must rub their hands in glee when he calls to inquire about a player. He's been mugged by agents in a way that Gill never would.

I always liked Rojo , his injuries really hurt his chances. Maguire is beginning to misplace passes and few occasions caught under the ball . Lendelof has to do the grunt work and he's not up to that . Unfortunately or fortunately as United improve each position , others deficiencies will appear .

Tuanzebe and Rojo would make an interesting partnership. As for the Brighton game I feel confident. Still believe in Ole and this team is learning and growing all the time. Easy win for us.

I don't get Rojos fans. So far this season, I've seen every of offence we've gone against target him on 1v1 because he's so easy to defeat.
He shouldn't play cb, I prefer him as winger

What a beautiful pass from Fred in the build-up to Rashfords goal!

If the kids confidence keeps building on the pitch we could have a great midfielder after all!

Had some fantastic touches through-out the game..but needs to build on this and create some consistency
