Cool Diogo Dalot was exceptional last night



No way Der Gaffer lets him go.

AWB is in big trouble.

Probably his best game for us. Which isnít difficult.

I have serious doubts whether heís a good enough defender to play regularly, but he certainly offers more coming forward than AWB. That pass for Rashford on the Ronaldo goal doesnít happen with AWB.

If Rangnick is prioritising the attacking aspect of the full backs, then heís got a decent chance of getting a place held down.

I don't think he's good enough defensively, although got about a bit last night. At least at this point in his career.

AWB is the better defender of the two, but we're Man United if we can't have wingbacks that attack then what's the point.

Hopefully Ralf can get the defense sorted to a point that we don't need a wingback who is better defender than he is attacker.

Exceptional is a bit strong, defended a few one on ones well and delivered a nice pass to Rashford. His best game for us and maybe the best performance by a Utd full back this season, and deserves to keep his place in the next game because of that performance, but if we are settling for that as exceptional then we are f***ed.

But then he's 21 and has barely been played on 2 years. Portuguese international. Dortmund tried to snaffle him last summer.

With proper coaching and regular games he'll be the best full back at the club by some distance.

We donít need a world class play in each position. A rb that is competent enough . We won the double with Wes brown playing at RB in 2008, he was hardly gunning for best RB of the year. AWB just doesnít do it for me and I much rather see dalot play. He might not be the first team choice of ralf but at this stage I rather see dalot be the 2nd choice to the RB than AWB , if the boss does want to sign a new one

Iím on the Dalot express too.

Did I mention mrs Roth and I were in town after a game a couple of months ago and ended up chatting to a bloke on the next table who was his agent?

Scathing about Ole and also said Bruno and Ronnie might not work out that wellÖ.

May well serialise the conversation over a couple of months.

Stay tuned to hear what he said about Mike ĎMikeí PhelanÖ

My right back.....



AWB is an absolute liability, a block tackle merchant...

Offers nothing going forward, positional sense is the worse I've seen in a defender, not vocal , confident or assured.

He's lost his place.

The game has changed slightly since 2008 tbf.

Full-back is a hugely important position these days, and none of ours come anywhere near the top fullbacks in the league

Dalot did alright last night, I just canít see him being anything more than decent.

Thought he was about adequate.

Very good ball for the Ronaldo goal. Heís a back up right back if we had a good one.

We're so used to our full backs being straight up f***ing appalling that we're over reacting at run of the mill performances.

This man set the f***ing standard on which all other United fullbacks should be judged

Might be remembering things a little too fondly, but I remember Brown being outstanding for that one season. Pretty meh before and after, but 07/08 campaign he was really really good.

Dalot may be a better option, but I donít get the thinly (but not well) disguised dig at one of our players. But maybe I donít get what being a ďfanĒ is all about.
