the problem has been that maguire doesn't look after anyone or cut the cross out. he's very good at looking over his shoulder after the ball has been played, though. this has been the situation a few times where there are two defenders and two attackers.. and the defenders have to decide how to split responsibility between them. he's the captain and he isn't decisive or aware enough.

it would be lovely if we had two defensive midfielders. glad you're on board with that, at least.

he's no paul mcgrath, for sure, but who the f*** is?

he's also more of a threat going forward than maguire.

Roma have agreed a deal with Verona for centre-back Marash Kumbulla.

Staying!

At the risk of sounding like Sparky, how far have we fallen that fans are mourning the potential sale of Chris-f***ing-Smalling
And that was with two new players in the back four. They should improve even more this season defensively as they get to know each other more. I'm not worried about signing a defender for defensive sake but our current ones give us nothing going forward which unfortunately is where the scousers get half of their goals from.

That last part is more of an issue with full backs than centre back.

Having Smalling around reminds Bailly and Axel, that if they spend half of next season on the treatment table, their time at Utd is over.

To the detriment of the attack.
