    He is definitely not that great tactically. He got the most out of his players just because he is Zidane. Bit to his credit, he did it mostly playing pretty attacking football which pleases Florentino.

    I gave him too much credit for managing all of the egos in the RM locker room.

    Bigger move than people think especially if he can play in a back 3. Even if they don't he's still better than mustafi . This is the first time I've been excited to see arsenal play since the van Persie era.

    Crystal Palace with first goals of the season today ... at OT. And a win. Man how ManU has fallen. Pogba easily pick pocketed in midfield on the last min goal.

    Also a shocking no call on a PK on Martial. Clear hold on the shoulder and no VAR.

    Too many kids and average players (Lingard in the starting 11?) in their midfield. They got rid of the problem players that Ole couldn't corral, but I see them being an erratic team this season with how young they are and Ole being an average coach.

    I live for the day that Jesse Lingard is a starter for Man Utd and receiving calls for England. Seriously, am I being too harsh on him? I just don't rate him. United seems to have a knack for these lackluster talents that get into their starting lineup and even receive NT call ups. Not to say that other clubs don't have it happen, but I suppose I expect it less from a club like United. Other than the occasional flash here or there, I have never seen anything from Lingard. I've only seen Sir Alex get the most of those type of players too.

    Did we? He cost 12mil.

    He made mistakes yes, but he was solid. I mean he wasnt as bad as Roque Jr or David Luiz and Luiz cost waaay more.
    He had one good season, but now has been irking a lot of fans. Average is right.

    UEFA does a "tapetão" and saves Germany from being relegated in the UEFA Nations League.

    Germany's new 3rd jersey for the next Euros.

    Neymar starting to look better even if it was vs Gatassaray.

    Him, Rodrygo, and Vini Jr. all scored today. Rodrygo had a nice volley finish.
