Ronaldo Debut! - Does He Start Though? | Manchester Utd v Newcastle | Preview

Manchester United take on Steve Bruce's Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday, the first game back following the international break. It will also be the first game back for Cristiano Ronaldo as a Man United player, but the question is - does he start or will he come on from the bench?

    V.Beek is not an Ole signing, he didn't want him, otherwise he would play him more. Simple as that. He doesn't fit the way Ole sees his team play. Van de Beek would fit Koemans Barcelona, Man City, Liverpool, Sevilla. But teams like United, Chelsea, PSG, for example he just doesn't fit the way they play. Donny is perfect in a 3 CM team, United only plays with DMs and a number 10. Theres no space for centre midfielders at Oles United. Both Mc Tominey and Fred have defensive capabilities Donny doesn't. I like Donny, wish we could play in a different system that could fit him and all our best players but it doesn't work. MAybe, and it's a maybe United have someone like Palhinha or Rice , he could play, but with only an "old" Matic as a holding midfielder you just can't play Donny. However theres no reason Donny can't have at least 30+ mins in the 2nd half if United is winning well, or even if nothing is working, or against other weaker sides where United is much better.

    Tbh, I agree that fans tend to assume that the player that doesn't play automatically fixes the problem and more often than not, this is not the case. However, in this case we're talking about replacing Fred and I'd be willing to give Tom Heaton and Lee Grant a go before giving this piece of shit another start. Basically, anyone but Andreas Perreira.

    There is no universe where Rashford does not play on the left when he's fit. Our strongest possible midfield and attack is this Ronaldo (Edi / Greenwood) Rashford Sancho Bruno Pogba McTominay There is absolutely no way Pogba replaces Rashford on the left. He plays excellent for France from deep. Mckola is off on this one big time

    To Joe's Donny-Bruno comparison... Bruno wasn't amazing on his debut. He looked decent and was vocal and but took that game to find his feet. Donny came on for whatever 15-20 mins and scored on his debut. He hasn't been afforded a run in the team to show his quality like Bruno has. And he also doesn't need to be as impactful as Bruno to be a notable upgrade on our current midfielders

    Genuinely I'm getting triggered by this Donny talk, he has arguably the two best attacking center mids in the world in front of him, and while he can dictate play from deep, he offers absolutely nothing defensively, so even if he does play, it would still have to be alongside fred/McT/matic, in place of either Pogba or Bruno, now, just what kind of glue would anyone have to be sniffing to drop either of them for Donny, honestly, and that's before even considering that we don't get to see him train, as Ole and the rest of the coaching staff do everyday, it is absolutely moronic that this is even a conversation. Half of United fans are a case study of the Dunning-Kruger effect, stop listening to Talk Sport and ESPN, the other half of united fans think Ole its trying to sabotage us, and its deliberately picking the wrong players or not making subs, if he wanted to do that, don't you guys think he would have just stuck that chance in the CL final over the bar? is there any fucking chance that for just one fkin week we as a fan base could actually get behind our players and staff, and I dunno, support them?!

    Expecting VDB to do what Bruno does is frankly ridiculous. They're completely different players who do completely different things. He got 5 games worth of minutes in the league last season. Five. Out of 38. There is absolutely no excuse for that when Fred and McTominay stink the place up every week.

      @supastar Joe and Jay in particular have a weirdly harsh take on Donny. Despite Donny barely ever getting 90 mins and actually looking good when he plays, he's not taking his chance? For some reason his chance equates to 5 mins at the end of a game whereas Fred's chance is indefinite
