    All that's missing is team spirit... I feel like everyone forgets how important that is, look at Oxlade at Liverpool for example theyre not keeping him because of his amazing football theyre keeping him because he makes the team complete

    Listen to Scholes more. Fred is not Kante, and McTominey is not Jorginho, and they can't be compared to Thiago, Hendo, nor Fabinho. Maybe the likes of Ox are on the same technical level. No matter how good your manager is, these players have their limits.

    I think the midfielder issue is why Pogba was bought but honestly we are all sick talking about him … i believe Fernandez and VDB together can solve this issue but need to form a clever pair alongwith either fred or mctominay to shield, Ragnick can get this working … even previous managers realized this mid issue and that’s where there were failed bids for Fabregas, Thiago, Kroos, etc and then we ended up with panic buys of an injured Bastian & Schneiderlin

    Over the last 10 years or so, Manchester united have spent over 1 billion. 1.76b since 01/02 (rough figures, possibly not too precise). Over the last 10 years, they’ve spent about 100m more than PSG, and around 500m more than Barcelona, yet the solution always seems to be spend more because they should go for the title. I grew up thinking United was of the best teams in the world and beating them would always be a mark of pride/proof of quality. Not anymore, and not quite some time. Many scoffed at the figures spent for Alisson and Van Dijk but few batted an eye at the figures involved in getting Pogba back at united after having been let go on a free. Management and coaching are a major part of the current issues, but the overall recruitment has been questionable. Hard to say which of them, but half the squad should be let go and replaced with players that fit the long-term vision of the next manager while giving some academy players a shot. Just qualify for champions league, and try to ride the wave of the perceived City and Liverpool dominance while competing for cups for a few years. Or just keep spending hundreds of millions on trending players with no regard for work ethic and no vision of what the plan is 5 years from now.

    Not surprised these guys aren't managers. There are too many big heads and inflated egos in the squad and it has been that way since Ferguson retired. Look at Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and others. A team is a unit that is more than the sum of its parts because the players work for the team and work for one another. United have had 4 managers since Ferguson and it isn't getting better. Come summer a serious clear out of the squad needs to take place.

Not enough in my view.. too many individual egos in the squad.. haven't listened to the last 4 managers.. won't start now

    We need a Right Back and 2 midfielders if we re honest with our selves but good luck getting players like Bellingham or Rice either in January or in the summer. Both would cost as much or more than Sancho and it took us 2 years and a 40 million discount to get Jadon. Dont get your hopes up. I think if United could get even Trippier short term and a midfielder who is a destroyer but class on the ball and who doesnt dilly dally before moving it forward as well as someone like Poch or Ten Hag and their entire coaching teams/staff we would be competitive in PL/UCL but expecting all those things to happen perfectly when the people recruiting both managers, coaches and players when they also need to sell Pogba Lingard Martial Henderson Jones Mata is.. more than naive. The sad reality is that United will not win the premier league or the champions league again while owned by the Glazers and ran by Woodward, Judge, Murtough, Arnold and co.

    Learning from last result with Villarreal, we have: same players, new manager (just assigned a day before) with no direct involvement (with due respect to DF and MC) but got different result. I would say players must asked themselves whether they gave fully support to the previous manager or not.

Rashford is excellent Greenwood Sancho another but none of them will be played ahead of CHO Mount, Harvetz, and Lukaku. So for me we Chelsea have a better squad than United. This is utter nonsense from Paul Scholes, this guy has never liked Chelsea that is why he is so negative when it comes to us. Pure Facts!!

    In a word. No. The same structural issues will remain until a new club leadership team, who have experience running massive clubs, are installed. They need a playing strategy, they also need a transfer policy which is informed by the playing strategy and a new manager which is enabled by the rest. Utd are only planning one of these, a new manager and Woodward, who has overseen the last 4 managers is overseeing this appointment too - he keeps doing the same thing and hoping for a different outcome
