Manchester United are undoubtedly on a euphoric high right now. After the splendid twist that their encounter against Chelsea went on Sunday, they will certainly be eager to dream again.
The new signings of Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Daniel James, in particular, appear to be exceptional investments based on their initial outing.
Fans are eagerly waiting to see more of them as the season proceeds.
However, now that all the festivities are done, it appears to be baptism season at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Wan-Bissaka’s ‘Spider’ identity is intact as are his tackling prowess.
Now, Daniel James is due his.
Jesse Lingard has decided on an apt nickname for United’s newest Welsh signing.
Paul Pogba happily granted Harry Maguire the new nickname of ‘The Beast’, which is definitely an upgrade from his prior moniker of ‘Slabhead’.

Posting to his Twitter, the English forward said the following: “Welcome to the Theatre of Dreams. Spidey aka Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The Flash aka Daniel James. The Beast aka Harry Maguire.”
Fans clearly love these three nicknames and there is absolutely no doubt that they will catch on well.
The one for James is especially apt as the winger first came into notice as a result of his mind-boggling speed.
Speaking after the game, United’s new no.21 stated the following about United’s massive victory: “I think everyone was raring to go anyway, but we can’t get carried away We’ve got a big, big test at Wolves next week and obviously they’ve shown how good they were, especially against us last season so we’ve got to be prepared for that.”
It is obvious that he is already a favorite in the locker-room and judging by the deafening roar from Old Trafford after his debut goal on Sunday, he is certainly en-route to becoming an absolute fan-favorite too.
