No it doesn't, but you do, which is the base from where you argue. You can't argue on other people's behalf unless you know it as a fact.

Of course I can argue what a fanbase think, as much as you or anyone else can.

Oh well in that case I am quite sure that the vast majority of fans, think that Ole has made very good signings since he arrived. Ceryainly on here and I'm sure on the wider fanbase.

James is a calamity of a player, but his other signings have ranged from good to great.

James wouldn't be a calamity player if he could get a game on the left

------------------------------------------------

The question needs to be raised why we bought Dan James if he's better on the left than on the right given that most of our attackers prefer playing on the left where they can come inside onto their favoured right foot when they're not playing up front.

It's another reason why his signing didn't make much sense and it just strengthens the argument that last summer's transfer window wasn't actually a very good one.

I just wanted to pop in and say Mahuire isn't a success, he's a fridge, runs like a fridge, turns like a fridge and has a head shaped like a fridge door. How can you win so many headers from corners and put them all wide/over the bar?

James isn't United standard either.

I haven't turned Ole out yet but just the basics of football tell you that if you want to play a high line, then you don't buy a player like Maguire.

--------------------------------------------------

Quite.

Also if you want your full-backs to attack and offer a genuine threat in the final third you don't buy Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

It would even help if he was good in the build up phase but he's not.

You could have ended with "he's a fridge"

If I were to grade Ole on his first full season I'd give him a B+.

My main peeve with him so far is his use (or rather lack of use) of his squad. Doesn't rotate players doesn't bring players off the bench to change the way the game is going. He has good enough players with a wide variety of skillsets he could have called on at many points last season (and on match day one) which he failed to do.

Other than that he has done what's been required of him and has my full support... as long as he learns and improves...

Agreed. Nothing about the singing makes much sense.

Or the signing for that matter...

It was a good one. I would think that he bought James to be understudy for Rashford. But not having a RW means he's been shoehorned in there.
Do I think Ole gets everything right? No, but I'm a retired know nothing.

In your opinion of course mu52. You don't like it when people state things as fact so you probably shouldn't do it yourself.

Very highly rated young winger at a reasonable price. Maybe we could have loaned him out from Jan but Ole didnt replace Lukaku or Sanchez so we couldn't afford to

At least as true as your opinion. And I believe more true, there have been many comments saying just that. Difficult though isn't it when you say what the fan base say without any knowledge of it.

I'm happy with the attack he's built. Midfield is decent. Still need a RW but not a necessity with Greenwood available.

The defence however..

Repeatedly chose De Gea for 2 seasons in a row, after making mistake after mistake. Cost us top 4 in his first season and nearly the same this season.

Is he learning?

AWB. Time will tell if he works out. But right now he's not good enough. Great in games where we need to nullify pacy attackers (like against Palace) but useless going forward. Surely Ole knew this?

Maguire. Could have brought 2-3 promising CB's for that money and at least one would have been an improvement. Lack of pace will mean he's never considered a top CB.

Getting rid of smalling was a mistake. Bailly and Smalling are a better partnership than Maguire/Lindeloff. Pace, power, aggression and we can play a higher line.

Lindelof - we all know he is weak. He keeps getting caught out but will never get dropped.

Is Ole learning? Seems like he has a bit of a blind eye to the defence.

Haven't even mentioned his lack of rotation and running players in to the ground.

Anyways, I am still optimistic Ole will learn and get it right. But I don't want a third season of playing catch up and the players being dead on their feet towards the end of the season.

Playing catch up to who ?
