    I would hope so....

    I would have also hoped they had watched a lot of video before the FA cup and April matches too, but both of those were losses in which United shouldn't have felt hard done by. They were the second best team on the pitch both times.

    I'm fairly confident RLC and CHO will continue to develop into quality starters. RLC has been great when healthy for both Palace and Chelsea, but how consistently healthy he can be is a huge question mark.

    I'm confident in them as well. As long as they stay fit and the injuries don't take too much out of them, they should be fine. It just depends what caliber of players they develop into.

    Healthy RLC was our second best midfielder last year. He doesn't have the passing ability some others have, but his ability to press and create turnovers when defending, and to create separation and beat guys 1v1 when attacking was fantastic for us. He compliments Kante very well in that regard.

    I'm high on Mount, but he needs tons of refining when off the ball, especially in our half.

    Yeah, RLC 1v1 ability is missed right now. His combination of athleticism and strength is huge.

    Mount is still a bit raw. He pressed great to create that goal, but at other times he led to the midfield getting lost to Leicester. He'll get better, but he'll have his ups and downs.

    This year will be a bit like when we brought AVB, except the youth this time has more potential, and Lampard probably has more respect from the vets than AVB had.

    I think Mount's biggest weakness is he has been close to useless when we try and play out from the back. I'm not sure he really knows what to do, as he has looked completely lost. It leaves us short an outlet in trying to transition up the field into the attack.

    Wolves looked pretty bad in week 1, I doubt they'll get a win today.

    Game started about like expected. United with a boatload of possession in the middle third, but Wolves keeping good shape and stopping basically anything in the final third.

    Meh, would rather have Pereira in for set pieces. Not sure what James is supposed to bring against this team...

    I think James has more of a place early in this game when it's expected to be more open.

    If United score, it worked. If they don't, Wolves are gonna back in more and more as the game goes on and James doesn't have as much value as Pereira in a collapsed game.

    I am aware what his skillset is, I just don't see what it does against Wolves

    Martial had it, but just didn't kick at the ball once Bony went for the diving header.

    Looked like he tripped on the legs of the defender and just went down easily.

    Normally you say a keeper shouldn't get beat near post, but that was a spectacular finish. Basically perfect placement.
