Manchester United’s improvement under Jose Mourinho, Leeds’ lack of midfield quality and why Liverpool need to sign Ryan Sessegnon are all debated by TEAMtalk’s readers.

Jose is doing a great job. He took us on when we were at our lowest ebb. Confidence was shot, we’d become a laughing stock, performances were dire and we had no winning mentality under LVG.
Joses made decent signings. In hindsight Pogba’s not done as well as we’d hoped but Jose weren’t to know that and we were all happy on here when signed.
We have a winning mentality again, I was only just thinking about how much less we see of De Gea performing heroics this season. I always have hope we can score yet that had disappeared with LVG.
I’m more than happy, would love top 4 but we’re a hairs breadth away and a couple of top saves away from being so ( Stoke game etc)
Progress definitely, better football and optimism. That had been removed with LVG
Can Liverpool get their stakes on please and sign Ryan Sessegnon asap?
This young lad is fantastic left back – 16yrs old and already 23 appearances under his belt with 6 goals to boot.
If it means loaning him back for a season so be it. It’ll be worth it in the long run.
Same old story. Not surprising is it? We’ve been saying it for weeks now. There just isn’t enough quality in the middle of the park to make any telling contribution.
Have to bite the bullet and see out the remaining nine games, hoping for more slip-ups (like today) from the others around us.
Can’t see any improvement from Sakho, Roofe, Hernandez, Bridcutt, Doukara and O’Kane. The truth of the matter is that they are simply average players.
Ayling was, for me, our man of the match. He is going to be missed against Brighton next week, big time! If ever there’s a game I’m dreading, it’s this one.
Barca is an absolute disgrace to modern football!
How can we forget the theatricals of David Villa and Sergio Busquets?
For each decision against them, they surround the referee!
You touch the boots of Neymar and Suarez and they fall immediately! This only means that they are deliberately looking for penalities!!
All teams have players that put pressure on referees. What Barcelona did was a special moment in football that we may never see again.
Everyone said if any team could do it it was them. But for them to actually do it the way they did was incredible. After PSG scored people all thought PSG were through. I thought it was the best game I’ve ever seen.
Just when all the pressure & (non-AFC) media are all over wenger……his French buddies PSG pull a bottle job to take a bit of the shine off wengers annual CL joke.
Funny thing is that the only other club you could see “pulling off” what PSG did would be us, lol.
JM by now should be looking at strengthening the squad for next season. But whilst he may not know about players he needs to sign I don’t think he knows what team format to play at the back – four at the back, or else 3 at the back with two attacking wing backs.
If he goes 3 at the back then he needs to buy another 2 CBs – Bailly and two others. Because neither Jones or Smalling are anywhere near good enough.
JM should be looking at purchasing the best players around. We are Man Utd and we should be signing the best.
Suprised the club has let it run on coming into the last year of Can’s contract.
Can can negotiate his own transfer outside the PL next January and leave for nothing next summer.
This should have been sorted out one way or another last summer.
Should Can go this summer his value in the transfer market will be considerably lower than it would have been last summer with just a year left on his contract.

Apparently the club want 25 million for him, in the last year of his contract so the club actually values him higher than Lallana who was bought for 26 million with 2-3 years left on his contract but are unwilling to match his contract.
According to reports Lallana was on 65-70k a week. I find it disturbing that the club is unwilling to match Can’s wages to his worth in the market and very unsettling now that Klopp has come out and stated that he wants this saga to be settled by the club.
There are a few Million pounds that we spent wisely. Hazard who was 20 at the time for £32m is a bargain. Costa who was a proven goal scorer for £32m is another bargain. £7m for Azpi is one of the best business. the £7m we spent on Courtois. the £9m that we spent on Moses is now looking a bargain. the £7m that we spent on Cahill. and the £20m we paid to bring back Matic. and more importantly the £34m that we spent on Luiz, who many people including myself criticised at the time now seems a great piece of business.
Not to mention the £23m that we spent of Alonso has also spent wisely. which club gets a creative midfielder in Fabregas for £27m? and the £12m we spent on Zouma is a bargain. only Batshuayi is the one i doubt. and i can’t fault the lad has he hasn’t had enough chances to prove himself due to the form of Costa. even the £21m that we spent on Pedro which everyone was calling a waste now looks well spent. and abovd all, appointing Antonio Conte was the best decision the club has taken since we appointed Jose Mourinho back in 2004/05 season.
To make it 100% accurate “the £32m that we spent on Kante must be one of our our best £32m spends ever”. ????
Just a thought to ponder on: One Paul Pogba equals circa three N’golo Kante’s

999…think we’re forgetting 11 million pounds for a certain Frank Lampard!! Best return on that investment ever. The 26 million on Drogs was also a great investment, as was the 9 million for Ivan and the 7 million for Big Pete. 5 million and Gallas for the world’s best left back wasn’t too shabby either.
True ginger I was just saying 10 million because Vardy is getting on lol… Not many strikers go for big money once they hit 30….
To be fair they do lose pace as they get older, and vardys pace is a huge part of his appeal
