Used to it already. These days we all know how United performance is. Lethargic. No movement. Everyone standing around. No idea. No urgency. Not surprised at how they will start the game these days.

If they play attacking right from the start like in the 2H Newcastle and chelsea game then we will be surprised.

we need our defenders, in fact the whole team to do well before they go down 1-0
of cos, not expecting them to be like that through out for every single game
Our 2nd half was so much better, and VictorL actually looked like a solid defender after the break.

I marked down 3 very important games.

1)12/11 away to Man City
2)6/12 home to Arsenal
3)17/12 away to Liverpool

Earliest that Mourinho could be sacked will be after 12/11 if lose to Man City. For Mourinho to avoid getting sacked he will have to win all these 3 games which is almost impossible.

Our 2nd half was so much better, and VictorL actually looked like a solid defender after the break. Let's hope he has suddenly woken up. Other than that, I wish CristianoR came back to us instead of Juventus. So obvious that he still strikes the ball better than any of our players. And probably faster and technically superior to RomeluL.
We had a good spell and that actually felt like the United of old. How the hell we failed to score against that keeper who conceded 8 against us in a single match?

And DDG came out superbly tops in his duel with CristianoR. We could have been 2-0 or even 3-0 down.

I'd like to see this same starting 11 a few more times. Looks like the way to go.
I don't think LKK/Martial/Rashford should start together.

Just choose 2.

I don't think LKK should start at all... There made your job easier to choose 2.

JM gave his reason for not using any subs cos he didn't trust Chong who is our only attacking option to play and pull us back in the game. Talk about showing confidence to the youngster who didn't even have a chance to prove himself.

Lol, what did I mention, no Fellaini, no plan B... So no subs. What a joke of a tactician he is. Only 1 plan. This shows that he has 0 plans if we're a goal down. This also shows how much trust he has on our young players.

If LVG didn't trust Martial, he wouldnt be the hero he was on his debut and the player he is today.

'And the only really attacking options I had on the bench was a young 18-year-old lad whose never played in the first team before.'

‘And I didn’t think, given the dynamic of the game, it would have been appropriate to put him on.

‘You can’t expect a young kid coming on, making his debut in a game like that, to be able to give me something like scoring a goal. So basically that’s why I didn’t make any changes and just stuck with the players we had out on the pitch.’

We saw TahithChong once. And there's a big gulf between him and AnthonyM on his debut.

Which reminds me, he actually made a good clearance this time round instead of jumping up and ending up under the ball. That's why I have given up expecting headed goals from him.

dont know why LKK still can say the team doesn't understand his play. I bet the team doesn't understand how he cannot finish as well, what a bellend.

but power lah Lindelof. Give him a few more matches and confidence, he can be like Vidic (too early? lol)

let's not start making it sound like Chong would have made a whole lot of difference and use it as ammunition to shoot the mgr. its........
