Manchester United (2019/20) Season Review

A forgettable average season comes to a deserving end!The team got the fans like me excited on certain occasions but much like last season ran out of gas towards the end (finishing 3rd notwithstanding). Some of the things that stuck of as positives and negatives for me as a fan.+ve Emergence of #MasonGreenwood ! What a finisher the boy is !+ve Anthony Martial stepped up as a true center forward. If he maintains his newfound hunger for goals, he would light up PL and Europe next season.+ve #BrunoFernandez / #Pogba partnership. Good to see a central midfield pair finally blossoming, Both of them are willing to take creative risks and on the long run would auger well for United.+ve #WanBissaka , what a defender. Understandably towards the end of the season he did run out of steam but he is t...

United at Hawthorns

United had it too easy in the first half and for a neutral this match would have been as boring as it gets. I do not know what's with Lukaku and his celebration of no-celebration. Gets to the nerve when you are happy watching your team score and then watch the joy getting killed by the way your team celebrates the goal. I do not know what Rojo brings into this team. He is ridiculous every single time he plays for us. Pogba should be back next week and hopefully that would revive the team a bit. This week like almost all other weeks this season has been about City and they way they play. Honestly the City game much more fun to watch.

Newcastle at United | Pogba returns, Martial and Rasford impresses.

Today's result was as routine as any before the match at Anfield and we all know from what has happened throughout this season, an international break can make or break momentum. All you need to do is ask United or more recently Arsenal or Spurs. The match did expose that one vital cog United was missing on, one Mr Paul Pogba - the swag is back. The MOTM for me was Marcus Rashford for the two very incisive, selfless moments. My thoughts on the match and the rest of the match day can be summarized as below: There is still life left in Arsenal. It was a deserving win against a team who were on upward trajectory. The return of Pogba has brought back the expected swagger back to the United side. Say what you may, but the ease at which he controls the pace of the game gives a boost to e...

Slow, pedestrian and lacking ideas.

Oct 21, United at Huddersfield Town FC. Injuries are part and parcel of the game and we have seen teams manage it better than how United is handling it right now. There is a terrible lack of ideas when a player who is supposed to be an integral part of the team goes off. Today, the Jones injury was the turning point. Although the injury did play a vital part, United were still not in the game prior to that. There was not anything meaningful till the last 15 minutes of the game. Martial and Mata were out of sorts from the word go and up front there was never anything to suggest that United were threatening. I cannot even say that Huddersfield played out their hearts as they didn't have to ! The last second block off Smalling (of all the people) summed up the day for United...

Goals galore and an expected result

Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, Sept 30, 2017 As routine a United performance as you would ever see against a club which now holds the record for the most number of minutes in the start of a season without scoring a goal. Things are not going to get any better for them as they travel to Stamford Bridge next. What impresses me the most about this United is the speed at which they hit off the blocks from the word go! Palace with yet another horrible performance was never going to stop this United juggernaut, without Pogba. I thought I would never say this but Fellaini was the standout performer for United today. The more I see him play for United the more he makes me eat my own words, however, I still do maintain that he is a squad player (a very valuable one though) and shoul...

Gritty United hold on !

United @ St Mary's These are the sort of performances which would count in the end when the season meanders into end zone. There were times when United did exactly the same thing that Mou accused our opponents off this season. It was the 10 men behind the ball which won us this game rather than the plethora of attacking prowess that United possesses. The MOTM performance for me came from the guy who was once called the Duncan Edwards II, by SAF, much to the ridicule of many of the fans and pundits. Today he was rock solid in defense and rarely put forward a wrong step. These sort of performance, albeit in defense, would definitely prove that SAF was not far off target after all. Lukaku is slowly and steadily repaying the 75 mil that was spent by United in bringing him over f...

West-Hammered, United off the a flyer ! [United vs West Ham, Aug 13]

2 Cents, Aug 13th 2017. The most striking difference from the whole of last season is the attitude. The work-rate put in by the trio Matic, Rashford and Mikki were something which we did not see that often last season. Lukaku is going to bang in the goals for us against the mid-table teams. There were a lot of his first touches that left a lot to be desired. The two goals though were of supreme quality. Rashford was my main man today. He was direct, industrious, always available and making those runs down the channel. Mikki and Rashford did well in occasionally interchanging flanks and making life difficult for the wing backs. West Ham as a team were pretty poor today and in no way were they helped by the list of injuries they have. Zabaleta and Arnautović were very good ...

Present day Gladiator eclipses the epic ‘Return of the Two Strikers’.

Everton @ OT. A game that was built up to be the epic return of two strikers will fondly be remembered for the stunning strike by the present day gladiator. The score should be flattering for  United as Everton were the better for major chunks of the game. Every single manager who failed to take heed to SAF (2013) when he stated that Rooney should be put on sale has had to face the consequences. I just hope that Koeman does not get himself added to the list after Moyes and Van Gaal. Rooney, to be fair had one of his best matches since joining Everton and it all fell apart for them after Rooney left. In other words, United started playing better once Rooney left. <forgive me for that> Credit to the OT faithful for showing their appreciation towards Rooney both before th...

So how does the team react when in a difficult situation ?

United @ Stoke, Sept 9th The Bailly/Jones pairing which was immaculate for United for the first three matches was culpable for both the goals that Stoke scored today. These kind of defensive frailties would be exploited by bigger teams Herrera makes his first start of the season after the player of the season performance last year and I daresay Mata was benched for the role he played in Perreira going off to Valencia on loan against Mou’s wishes. The second half, for most parts, was played by United with an eye on the match on Tuesday and it was there to be seen. Stoke had the clearer of chances and but for some accustomed De Gea magic, United would have been staring at a defeat long back. There was a serious lack of quality in the crosses when anybody other than Valencia...

That feeling when you pass your first real test of the season.

Pogba is slowly and steadily becoming the midfield gladiator that United thought they were buying when the World Record transfer fee was broken last year. It was a dominant first half but United simply lacked that finishing touch. There was one instance in the first half when Blind had to hold on to the ball for more than a couple of seconds waiting for somebody in Red to attack the penalty box. United needs to be more dominant while attacking the box. I am still waiting for the time when both Martial and Rashford are allowed to ply their trades through the two wings. Mou might be inclined to give it a try if the two kids were a bit more consistent with their performances. Schmeichel makes it 3 saves out of the last 5 penalties and if that is not special, i wonder what would...
