Pre Season Talk.

A good read from the BBC today.

https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49144693

Of most interest to me is the piece about our lack of fitness under Jose and how we have gone about addressing it.

There are a few speculative parts by the author. One being we had no interest in Bale form the get go and the other being the 4-2-3-1 formation that we must not play with Pogba and Matic being the 2.

Plenty there for us to talk about on the first day of the week.

but don't be surprised if this focus on fitness leads to a massive injury crisis come february.

...........

Or he is getting it right so this doesn't happen.

meh ... i have heard this fitness nonsense from pretty much every manager who is new to a team. you never hear anyone say that the previous manager spent too much time on fitness. it's just an easy thing to say that fans will believe.

i would be astonished if solskjaer had better fitness people than jose, who of course uses tactical periodisation. to be honest. we will never really know. but don't be surprised if this focus on fitness leads to a massive injury crisis come february.

Seems like we always have an injury crisis every season. Might as well have the fitter players to go with it.

Another BBCsport article on Man Utd.... shocker.

..............

They have articles on lots of teams. What an odd comment.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Indeed they have but not as many as Man Utd articles in a given timeframe...

I doubt even Salford gazette wrote as many articles as BBC wrote on Man Utd.

There are two articles on the BBC Sport main page covering United. This isn't anything new.

Go back to your bog cleaning Maf.

The BBC publish quite a lot of United articles, but they tend to open them up to comments.

This leads to them being flooded with hundreds of sh*tty, snide, idiotic b*llocks from opposition fans complaining about the BBC always publishing United articles...

Which means the BBC are happy to continue to publish United articles as it shows they are getting the hits they need...
