    Yellow card for Phillips - another sign that the 18 months of limited playing has made him very very rusty.

    I didn't think Phillips looked to bad when he came on.

    The Denmark match is going to the toughest group match the Euros for sure.

    They lost 3-2 and Henderson wasn't captain, Berghaus was. But correct otherwise.

    I think that's got more to do with the circumstances in which he left Villa when he played for them rather than peoples' disapproval of him as England manager.

    It's to do with his refusal to pick Jack Grealish when he was at villa I think

    It is but it plays into Villa’s fans reactions whenever Watkins and Konsa are not selected.

    Mainoo maybe not doing as well. One of his weaker performances so far.

    Konsa was in the last squad and Watkins has been in the last few on the spin. I don't think the few inflammatory comments you see on social media are that widely representative of a stadium of 40k people.

    Luke Shaw subbed off at half time.

    Mainoo has looked very comfortable in possession

    Looked great on the ball. There's been a lot of space in United's midfield off the ball at times but that's what happens you have a team that has barely any possession retention and is forced to defend transition after transition.

    This is what I mean when I say I'd like to see him in a more structured setup with better personnel, rather than playing alongside Casemiro and Bruno who both treat the ball like a bomb.

    I think he'll look great alongside rice and Bellingham. Much better players than the United midfield

    I don’t think we will see a change in the Man United midfield until next season where Cassmiro (And Mount) might leave.

    How do you manage to bring Mount into everything? :ROFLMAO:

    He's barely kicked a ball this season due to injury, he's not part of the midfield issues we're talking about. It's also not likely United sell him before he's even had a chance to prove himself there.

    Looking at the United forums the hype is starting to die down a bit and they're noticing that he's often quite poor off the ball, albeit with many eye-catching moments on it. Personally I do think his cumbersomeness is an issue in this regard.

    I'm not knocking him as such, I just don't think the hype helps. He's still doing very well overall and I wouldn't object to him being called up with the state of Phillips and Henderson right now. It would be interesting to see him in a midfield with Rice and Bellingham.

    I have a feeling Southgate will call him up but personally I think it's a bit too early

    He’ll improve off the ball as he gets older. It doesn’t help that he is playing alongside Casemiro, who looks finished physically.

    Really? I think he's made a massive difference to the side since he's come back. He made 9 tackles yesterday which is a lot. He's past his best granted but I'm not sure he's finished.

    Mainoo should improve off the ball, I agree with you there.

    I think Southgate might well choose him or Jones to be called up to balance the issues Phillips and Henderson have. It won’t be as controversial selecting both of them if someone new is given a call up as well even if as it stands Gallagher does not deserve to dropped but both of those kept.
