Name: Mitchell Jones
Favourite United player: Ole Gunner Solskjaer
Favourite current United player: David de Gea / Juan Mata
What advice would you give Jose Mourinho: I wouldn’t; when Louis van Gaal is in the room, you listen to the manager!
Favourite United Goal: The Rooney overhead kick vs. Man City. Given the controversy surrounding him at the time, it was a perfectly timed antidote to the negativity.
Where will United finish this season: 3rd – will amend to 2nd if a defender comes in before deadline day.
Best United side: I can’t answer this question without doing a great disservice to the likes of George Best, Steve Bruce, Mark Hughes and Bebe. For childhood nostalgia purposes, the 98-99 team was probably as well balanced and fine-tuned as could be asked for. However, Juan Mata would definitely make the team because he’s a beautiful man who should be in every United side.
Player you’d like to see at Old Trafford: If De Gea got his head together and wanted to stay, I’d keep him over making any transfer in the world. However, Harry Kane is exactly the kind of player that Sir Alex Ferguson would have gone for, whilst Gareth Bale just seems to have been built to be a Manchester United player.
Who will finish top scorer at United: Wayne Rooney or Memphis Depay. If they can bag 20 goals each, I’ll be ecstatic.
