Funny to see how Mustafi gets an absolute slating on here yet he’s the best performing centre back so far this season 🤷🏼‍♂️
Just sayin.

Mustafi is having a far better season under Dick than he ever did under Arsene as are Xhaka and Iwobi, whether they are good enough still is a matter of opinion but all 3 are showing the best we've seen from them.

I thought things were bad on here, but it's even feistier on the Man U pages! :) Interesting comments though, and that Mata, Herrera and Martial are all out of contract next summer. DdG too.

Martial and Auba either side of Ozil and behind Laca. Yes please.
I always liked Mata too.

I don't understand why our page isn't buzzing, 15 games unbeaten under a brand new manager who is still in his first 3 months of his new job in a new league.
I'm not quite sure what people expected or even hoped for but personally I'm very pleasantly surprised to say the least with how things are going so far.

{Ed025's Note - and well you should be G62..

Ive got to be honest, i didn't think it was bad on here, since you know who left. Generally, the posts have been pretty positive, when it is positive and negative when it is negative. I think most posters on here are on point, with their views. Many plusses and a few minusses. The problem with utd fans is because its "maureen" most give him more slack than most including putting up with Neanderthal football. I think he is the posh persons sam allardyce. Or just sam allardyce. Humpa lumpa football of the highest order.

{Ed025's Note - united fans wish jose was allardyce steve.. :)

I'm really not sure what some people expected Ed025 mate, far to much far to soon is my guess mate.
Why we are not all buzzing with excitement at the positives rather than constantly highlighting the negatives after so many years with no sign of improvement in sight is beyond me mate.

{Ed025's Note - i think they must be expecting a wheel to come off G62, he has done superbly well in a very short time and not a lot of people envisaged that coming (me included if im honest) so they might just be reluctant to sing his praises just in case things go tits up, its always hard when you replace someone who was an icon like arsene was and we have all witnessed how man utd have struggled since fergie left, im sure if things continue in a similar vane then things will improve fan wise mate..

To be fair Steve I thought this page would have a resurgence of interest with Dicks impressive start but if anything there are less posts this season than at any time I can remember in the 5 years since I first joined.
Of what posts there are there is definitely an increase of positive ones percentage wise but still the negative posts heavily out number the positive ones which I find strange.

15 games unbeaten with everyone working harder than ever even if they are not always brilliant is enough for me to throw away the negative and buy into the positives again but I do see your point about some people remaining cautious Ed025 mate.

{Ed025's Note - i wish it was different G62, but it is what it is mate..

Gunner, i think i scared a lot of the wenger in boys away and they can't come back now can they? Lol
I mean somebody actually doing something right for this club.
But to be serious for a bit, i think we are in limbo at the moment, it could still go both ways and when it gets better or worse, the posters will flock back. Its all a bit calm at the moment and the season isn't at the sharp end yet.

Fair play Steve mate, I guess I was so ready for the wave of change i was happy to surf on every riple of positive that came our way even if not quite the stuff where world records are broken just yet.

I think we all miss Dags and his jokes! 😢.

I don’t know ed025 mate but he’s definitely a loss to the page.

I do use the United page for my daily dose of humour whilst he’s away though.

{Ed025's Note - thats all good stoner, i do miss my dags time though mate..

We all miss Dags, firstly and most importantly hope all is well in his world and then secondly I hope he's just having a post Arsene adjustment break.
I know he was always loyal to Arsene even when he found it difficult to be so hopefully we will hear from him in the not to distant future when he's got his head and heart more used to Arsene not being around.

{Ed025's Note - amen to that mate..

G62, bottom line is, people don't voice positives but are fairly quick to voice negatives. It's human nature.

Also, as Ed025 said, many of us want to see what's what over the course of a full season. For me, I still feel we're poor but have been lucky in many games.

{Ed025's Note - i touched on that the other week sharpy, we all know that there will be a bad patch and the luck will turn at times mate but no one can argue with the fine start the team has made under dick..

All fair points Sharpie mate, no one can deny we've rode our luck so far something that isn't new to us especially at the back.
For me the most encouraging thing is our new work rate and effort which to some degree is improving our chances of getting lucky.

A couple of seasons back were flying high in the league and we drew with PSG twice in the champions league simply because of opposition awful finishing especially Cavarni home and away and once Everton took thier chances against us so did everyone else, I don't think that will happen this time simply because there is so much more effort commitment and passion since Emery took over.
Time will tell of course as always.

Yes, its funny how Dags disappeared of the face of the earth without saying adios amigos. i'm sure all being well he will return with his old jokes again. Maybe he will turn up in the jungle next week!

{Ed025's Note - lets hope so steve..

Hi Ed I was wondering what happens with fines, you often see players, managers or teams get fined by the FA or UEFA, usually it's peanuts in the world of football and you think more that's not going to make much difference to them, rather than I wonder where the money goes. But the one that stood out was city's fine of £49 million for breaching ffp, which is an absurd punishment for spending too much money (if you spend too much money you then have to pay more money! 😂) but are they transparent about what happens to that fine or does it disappear shadily? Which I would find more disturbing than someone spending too much of their own money on a club they own.

{Ed002's Note - The FFP fine ended up being €20M for Manchester City which wa pair. As you say most fines are of no consequence which is why you will see a continued increase in other sanctions - UEFA take revenue income now. The likes of Tirana, Itysh and Vojvodina lost the Europa League I come in fines. soon were banned for two seasons, etc.. it is better than CHF55k for Sevilla for an extremely questionable deal or further warnings to the likes of Liverpool who are the most charged club by UEFA.}

Having salvaged a draw despite a poor peformance against Wolves, I am not too despondent. After 2 defeats at the start of the season, to have gone unbeaten in the league for the next 10 matches is pleasing and without a defeat in 15 matches.
The areas that are a cause for concern are:
Defence: A quality CB is still needed, as Mustafi still fails to convince. Holding has improved and perhaps a fit Koscielny may improve the situation. Left back is another cause for concern and reports have emerged that we are looking at LB's.
The Xhaka/ Torreira partnership has looked promising, but Xhaka has too many mistakes in him and although a fan, I am starting to think we need a better option. Guendouzi is a fine young prospect, but needs to mature. It would be interesting to try Maitland-Niles alongside Torreira or/ and look to sign a further DM. It really concerns me what happens if Torreira picks up an injury.
The major problem is that the 3 in Emery's preferred 4-2-3-1 tends to comprise of Aubameyang (a striker) , Ozil (who offers little defensively) and Iwobi or Mkhitaryan ( neither of which are known for their (defensive attributes) . Against Wolves at half time Emery stiffened up the 3 with Guendouzi coming on for Iwobi. Sad to lose Welbeck to serious season-ending injury. On the positive side I thought Leno was outstanding, it has been a long time since we had a keeper capable of making point-saving saves.

Leno was outstanding, Brian Clough said Peter Shilton was worth 15 points a session to Forest and I reckon De Gea has been worth 40 points to United for the last 3 seasons.
It's not ideal for your keeper to be man of the match but when all said and done it's what he's there to do when called on.
An outstanding Keeper in his prime really can make such a difference and almost all successful teams have had an outstanding keeper to call on when necessary through out the years.

The big big problem with arsenal is xhaka and the whole of the back four are poor at their jobs. Wether some or any are capable of better with recruitment is debatable. The same players make the same mistakes and look so vulnerable when asked to defend. Some of our players in the attacking area look capable of taking us higher, some behind them look cabable of taking us down. We are on a great unbeaten run but too many more performances like yesterday will soon start to undermine the potential for this season. The most annoying thing under wenger was his inability to sort out the problems. Dick needs to be seen to going someway to sorting his out in january. While i am happy to see the improvements we have made, i am really worried by the lack of improvement in defending. Our own mistakes leading to goals is a disgrace and top of that list is xhaka, he has made more mistakes leading to goals than any player in the prem, since his arrival, apparently. For me the fact he is so obviously not capable and being played is a worry. Our goalkeepers are the best two of any team in the league but that will only take you so far on its own.

The back four xhaka Iwobi Ozil and miki are not good enough.

It was inexplicably awful yesterday and only Lucas and Leno and possibly Holding should be asking for their wages! Front three were terrible as I say after Liverpool inexplicable- maybe thought we drew with Pool let’s just turn up! Hope emery has a hairdryer if that’s the case . One particular point had me screaming at the telly! Wolves were attackingdown their left and their winger had the ball and Hector just stood still giving a free cross in . That is so basic defending yet he did it! Surely someone Boulder preferably should be having a strong word about at least the basics! Yes crybaby Özil was terrible yesterday but to drop or sell him no thanks! Always wanted to know Steve are you Xhaka’s agent? Leno a great buy in my opinion COYG.

Ha ha sussex, i love him really but only when he isn't in our team. As for bellerin, I've said for years he isn't a defender, he can't defend and as a right back, it helps a tad if you can.

Only 2 teams in the prem, Cardiff and arsenal, that haven't gone in at half time with a lead. I suggest while you have a donkey like xhaka in midfield who is limited in his physicality, movement and tackling, we will always struggle. From the minute wenger bought him, our midfield strength has been none existent. Dick, open your eyes to this fraud and get him out!

Xhaka Iwobi Ozil and the back 4 pmsl would they get in any of the top 5 teams I think not please feel free to moan on my post and say how good Ozil is, because you need to take your glasses off he is awful.

Surprise Surprise, what idiot is at fault for that goal. He shouldn't be anywhere near the prem let alone arsenal. Useless!

Just as people were starting to back Xhak, I have a feeling he will spend his whole career handing over his arse to those who start to believe. Needs a match winning performance to level the scales in the second half.

Same as Iwobi and Ozil shocking performance from the back 4 and the 3 names above.
