Fredericks infuriates me, you can see in flashes how good he could still be.

Loads of pace and the tricks to get past players and is more than capable of a decent ball in. Just lacks a bit of confidence and composure. Think it’s fair to say injuries haven’t helped him either.

Really hope he gets to push on, I could still see Moyes and Pearce get a song out of him.

Didn't wake up in time so just watched highlights.

One thing that really stood out. It was lovely seeing & hearing the crowd back :heart:

Really makes a difference for this armchair fan 8,000 miles away.

I like Fredericks. Great speed and although not the most skilful, he will do a decent attacking job. Also has a goal in him. I think he's an asset.

Good squad member….but doesn’t start in front of Coufal for me.

Loved the way they double teamed Grealish last season….

Good to see the subs all come around 65 mins.
Certainly a climactic moment.

dear oh dear - leave out the rest of the pedestrian like performance and negative passing ... Coventry should be on the field a long way before he steps foot on the pitch.
You proper seem to have something against Nobes ? What is it ?

I thought we played really well today. Second half was disjointed after all the subs but we controlled the game and created good chances.

Wonderful performance but we have to remember:

1. We’re ahead of them in our preparations
2. They are quite literally the perfect side (playing style) for our system to play against

This was a cracking win, good team showing, and many good individual efforts…but it doesn’t mask the fault that even assuming that we need back up at striker, at the wing, ideally in midfield (but slightly less so), at CB and depending on how Masuaku is going to be fitness wise at LB too. A few injuries and we are extremely bare bones and will have lots of tired players
I bet you're fun at parties :thup:

I didn't get a chance to find a link. How did Yarmolenko look?
I think there is a place for him, maybe against teams that we will have to work to break down rather than counter quickly
