MR was the worst performer of the night. His performance truly has taken a nose dive. Once again it was DDG that saved us from defeat plus VAR was kind this time, denying AS a good goal. The fans really hates Stevie G with all the booing.
Aston Villa bossed the midfield for most of the game and if we to be challenging for the 4th spot, we desperately need to improve on this department. Almost every team we played so far, the battle is lost in the midfield, thus the missed 3 points
When will Greenwood and Rashford ever learn to pass the ball instead of always wanting to take shots. They have to improve on this part of their game cos they wasted many chances for the team to score

Time for DVDB to force his way out. Last game Rangnick praised him yet refused to start him. Without Pogba and Scotty yet Donny cannot be picked?
Why sign Sancho when he cannot even find his place in the starting XI

lenghan 16-01-2022 03:25 AM

HT we lead 1-0 after BF's goal gifted by Villa's goalie
Good first half by the lads and surprising only 1 British player in the team.

lenghan 16-01-2022 04:03 AM

BF scored his 2nd goal after assist by Fred.
This 2nd half Villa has started to pick up their game

Honestly MR totally not missed in this game, nor is HM's absence felt at all
DDG has been excellent. keeping us in the game with few good saves

lenghan 16-01-2022 04:11 AM

Villa pulled one back after a great attacking move

lenghan 16-01-2022 04:15 AM

2-2 now. Villa is looking great with Coutinho introduction with a goal and an assist

KeeHuat 16-01-2022 04:39 AM

Poor to let a 2 goal lead slip.

The energy level dropped in the second half. Matic is too slow now.

lenghan 16-01-2022 04:48 AM

I think Rangnick had been naïve blowing away 2-0 lead with 20mins to go.
Villa was already picking up in the 2nd half and with the intro of the Brazilian genius by SG Rangnick should have taken off Fred and Matic as the midfield was being overrun. And as usual Donny was introduced at the 88th min!!!
Cavani was totally not given any service by the midfield

KeeHuat 16-01-2022 01:54 PM

Martial has been weak mentally and don't know what is going on inside his head.

Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that Anthony Martial did not want to play in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Aston Villa as he seeks a January transfer.

The Red Devils were missing several attackers for the trip to Villa Park, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford both carrying injuries, yet Martial – who is fit for selection – was not named in the matchday squad, with United only able to name eight substitutes.

Asked about his lack of subs, and if Martial was the reason, Rangnick explained: ‘Yes, he didn’t want to be in the squad.

‘He would have been in the squad normally but he didn’t want to, and that’s the reason why he was not travelling with us yesterday.’

Wished there are clauses in the contract that punishes such errant act of defiant. Blame it on the Glazers for protecting Martial all along esp during Jose's time when he blocked the sales

Now reply from Martial, who is telling the truth!

Anthony Martial rejects Ralf Rangnick claim he refused to be in Man Utd squad at Aston Villa

France striker Anthony Martial has rejected interim Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick's claim that he refused to be in the squad to play Aston Villa.

Martial has already told Rangnick he wants to leave United this month and Sevilla are keen to sign him.

"I will never refuse to play a match for Man Utd," said the 26-year-old forward in a social media post.

"I've been here for seven years and I never disrespected and will never disrespect the club and the fans."

KeeHuat 17-01-2022 06:11 AM

Elanga played well, attacked and was direct against the opposing players and worked well to defend. Ran out of steam a bit in the second half.

So now it is a case of who is telling the truth.
One thing is for sure, Rangnick should not discuss "internal conflicts" to the press and throwing his players under the bus to deflect his naivety iafter the team dropped points against Villa. Instead he should focus on what went wrong with his tactics or game plan. Even if AM was included in the squad, doubt he would be used as a sub and AM knew this is going to be the case

Maybe to prove a point to Joel Grazier, who thinks Martial is the French Pele and is reluctant to sell him.

Ralf Rangnick announces new Man Utd formation as stars can't make 4-2-2-2 work

Ralf Rangnick is planning an overhaul of Manchester United's tactics after a concerning run of one win in four Premier League games leaves them seventh in the table

Ralf Rangnick will discard his favoured formation in a bid to reverse Manchester United 's poor form and get Jadon Sancho firing.

The interim manager is ready to do away with his 4-2-2-2 set-up and pursue a 4-3-3 system he hopes will benefit United's stuttering £73million winger.

Sancho had to settle for a late cameo against Steven Gerrard's side and the struggling England international has only scored twice since his big-money arrival from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

Rangnick admits his traditional 4-2-2-2 has not played to the 21-year-old's strengths and the German is ready to shake up his tactics so he can line up in his "best position".

"We have now decided to play a 4-3-3 like we did against Aston Villa, with one holding six, two eights and three offensive players," Rangnick said ahead of United's trip to Brentford on Wednesday night.

"It's clear in a 4-3-3 that he (Sancho) is a player for either of the wing positions, either left or right, he can play both.

United: De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Varane, Telles; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes (c), Elanga; Ronaldo.

Subs: Heaton, Henderson, Jones, Maguire, Matic, van de Beek, Mata, Rashford, Martial.

lenghan 20-01-2022 05:59 AM

HT 0-0
We are playing shitty football again without a single shot on target whereas Brentford had 3 on target. All the possession we had was a bloody waste of time without any creativity

lenghan 20-01-2022 06:15 AM

Elanga scored from a good assist by Fred, Good ball control by Elanga too

lenghan 20-01-2022 06:23 AM

Greenwood scored the 2nd after a good build up assisted by BF

lenghan 20-01-2022 06:32 AM

CR7 very unhappy when being sub
HM and MR in, CR7 and MG off
Bringing in HM is hopefully to prevent a repeat at Villa

lenghan 20-01-2022 06:41 AM

3-0 MR scored the all important
Very good build up again this time by SM from almost the half way line with a good pass to BF to feed MR to smash the ball to the back of the net
We then see Rangnick, apparently trying to console CR7

A completely different team performance in the 2nd half. First half SM and Fred were shit but now they are credited for 2 goals
But overall DDG kept us in the game in the first half

lenghan 20-01-2022 06:45 AM

A silly goal to concede. 3-1 now
That was why I mentioned the "all important" 3rd goal to calm the nerves

lenghan 20-01-2022 06:59 AM

Once again a game of 2 halves, fortunately a good 2nd half that won us the game. To me DDG was the MOTM for his saves in the 1st half
The backline were pretty solid with Varane playing a commanding role but the midfield was totally non existent in the first half but picked up in the 2nd

loveikan 20-01-2022 10:43 AM

A fortunate win. Dalot and McTom were good.
The latter bossed the midfield in the 2nd half.

We are Playing more and more like our national team.
Good for one half only just that we don't which half

KeeHuat 20-01-2022 02:21 PM

1st half was poor with De Gea making saves to keep the score at 0-0.

Play improved in the 2nd half and Elanga took his goal nicely. Fernandes' attempted chip over the keeper at the end was poor and he could have scored t make it 4-1.

Hope McTominay is not injured as he was substituted.

KeeHuat 22-01-2022 11:18 PM

Man Utd XI: De Gea, Maguire, Ronaldo, Greenwood, Fred, Fernandes, Varane, Dalot, Telles, Elanga, McTominay.

Subs: Henderson, Jones, Mata, Martial, Rashford, Lingard, Cavani, Matic, Van de Beek.

lenghan 23-01-2022 12:43 AM

We had been unable to take advantage of West Ham's poor play so far.
In fact both teams are lacking in creativity. Our best chance was the call for a penalty on CR7 but ref waved it off. Altho slow motion suggest it was a close call

lenghan 23-01-2022 01:45 AM

Our strikers all left their shooting boots at home
Out of 14 attempts only Fred had a good attempt at goal

lenghan 23-01-2022 02:03 AM

MR won the game for us with almost the last kick of the match.
The introduction of AM made the difference. He created a very good move for EC to pass to MR to simply do a tap in for the winning goal
Who cares 3 points in the bag

lenghan 23-01-2022 02:14 AM

Rangnick is in for a big headache with AM now
To be honest AM made the difference when introduced and he was the one that created the opportunity for MR to score.
Rangnick dared not take out CR7 even tho he had an average game.
Consolation is our defence held out well with HM not making too many mistakes but this was cos West Ham were poor going forward having only 1 shot on target which was actually in an offside position

KeeHuat 23-01-2022 03:00 AM

It's Fergie time, scoring a winner right at the end.

West Ham didn't deserve to win and they were playing for a draw.

Rangnick threw on 2 forwards to go for the win and this affected the midfield and a bit of control was lost. The team played better defensively.

lenghan 26-01-2022 11:48 AM

Looks likely that no new players are going to come this Jan.
We have, as usual been linked with countless players and the Board had not sanctioned any new players for Rangnick.
Even Julian Alvarez whom we were heavily linked is now a Man City player. They do not pussy foot around. Identified and buy, simple as that whereas we drag our feet hoping for cut throat price

lenghan 30-01-2022 10:37 PM

Rangnick looks unlikely to get any new players judging from the way our Board handles these affairs. We should really learn from our major competitors. Just look at Liverpool...out of nowhere they pull of the signing of Porto's Diaz which of course we were also linked. Our Board only talks and allows the media to hype such news but truly had no intention to sign

"Mason Greenwood has been suspended by Manchester United amid accusations he allegedly attacked his long-term girlfriend Harriet Robson.

The club released a statement on Sunday which read: “Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice.”

Apparently evidence are overwhelming against Greenwood
Looks like this will destroy and end his footballing career
But like always....innocent until proven guilty.
Currently he is arrested and investigation is ongoing

A pity that a career is ruined. Poor Rangnick, having to deal with one problem after another...from disgruntled players questioning his training styles, leaked internal info, not backed by the Board for requested new players, players lining up to leave the club and now this Greenwood's alleged criminal indiscretion. Looks like managers after SAF are cursed at the Club. To compound the issue he is not even the permanent manager as yet and thus not surprise that players dared to "betray" him

lenghan 01-02-2022 02:11 PM

Donny's first words after joining Everton on loan
 
"I hope to bring my football qualities, my passing, and, of course, scoring goals. It is a big part of my game to score and give assists and I will try to do that again.

"And it is not only offensive, you have to defend as a midfielder and I can do that as well."

This is indeed very damning for Ole and Rangnick.
Hoped he succeed at Everton

KeeHuat 05-02-2022 04:15 AM

United: Henderson; Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire (c), Shaw; McTominay, Pogba, Fernandes; Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford.

Substitutes: Heaton, Grant, Jones, Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Hannibal, Mata, Matic, Elanga.

KeeHuat 05-02-2022 08:05 AM

If the chances are not taken, then this is the result.

The match should have been over in the 1st half with the no goals from the many changes and the missed penalty by Ronaldo. Only Sancho scored.

The goal by Middlesbrough should have been disallowed for handball and the reason given that it was accidental is wrong.
