Lack of a leader in the outfield all these years
too dependent on Pogba to create sth out of nothing as a result. He created more of nothing out of anything.
He created the goal for james if anything we rely too much on him the other players are being useless

Lingard's running around is useful but lacks the final ball. so if Bruno misplaces more passes than Lingard for United to drop the chase, how many is he misplacing each game?
let's just say well done to the staffs that we dodge a bullet, but they can't be knowing this fact only in the summer, no alternatives until we need to play Pogba in a deep role?

Pogba should be up there creating openings to feed our strikers. he did and we scored.
that's his game, and it's not suited to be placed just before the defenders. and nobody makes 100% passes every game, bound to have some that will be intercepted or he gets tackled away.. so why allow ourselves to panic when he lose the ball?

But Ed says no, cause Bruno misplace more passes than Lingard.

But how does Lingard misplace passes when he does is do headless chicken runs and air balls. You don’t misplace when you don’t even touch it ������

Exposed! Lack of creativity. Pogba himself cannot do much, he needs more creative players and off the ball runners. There will definitely be more of such games whereby Manutd camp in their half and just cannot penetrate through. The opposition sits back and counters and wins the game.

Not replacing Herrera and Fellaini is a huge mistake. Herrera was arguably the team's second best midfielder after Pogba. And if Pogba goes too.. good luck.

Don't think Pogba practised penalty kicks during training.
He would spend his time practising this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZR4urqxlTw

LOL he rather not do it on pitch.
Lingard does his training on social media.
Anyway Ole should start Lingard as DM.
He fits the Kante fitness, he can run around headlessly just to tackle.
Tackling is no brainer so it is easy for him.
We leave the AM role to Mata or push Pigba up front.

worse.
Adam Johnson has more Premier Legaue assists (11) in than Jesse Lingard (10) in the last 6 years. Adam Johnson has been in jail for the last 3 years.

24 hours after the match, and my anger towards the star midfielder losing possession has still yet to subside. Sure, for DDG to be beaten at his near post for his calibre is not normal, but it shouldn't have come to that in the first place.
When we play a high line, we are exposing ourselves to goals of the type like the 1st. It's so route one that I reckon ChrisS or MarouaneF would've dealt with that with ease. But hey, everyone says they are not United quality so they must be that.

It's the same problem since 2 or 3 seasons back - we can't break down teams when they are organised and disciplined. Whilst I'm in no position to question OGS, I find it baffling he would rather have PaulP playing deep when he can't orchestrate the midfield, and is prone to losing possesion.

It will likely be a tough long seasn, so brace yourselves.
I thought the problem was Jose Mourinho

VAR ref gave him advice over the earpiece regarding Cahill, and the 2 penalty calls

or rather, they reviewed the incidents but did not challenge the ref's decision so there was no need to review footage.
that's just silly and inconsistent, cause they looked at the other incident when Rashford was tackled in the box near the byline. In that case,the VAR ref is not really doing his job. There has to be more consistency when it comes to these kind of decisions in a match.

the Bruno misplacing passes bit just seems like a sorry excuse for not getting the low price the board was looking for for Bruno. His passing numbers are surely going to lower when the entire Sporting team is reliant on him to create or score, so he has to take the risks. A player with his number of assists and goals cannot be that bad of a passer as the stats suggest.

Pogba created our goal when he won the ball back off Zaha, and while he was partly responsible for the winner, I won't blame him as he was clearly carrying the entire playmaking of the whole team from deep. Put a better no.10 there rather than Lingard miscontrolling passes and fluffing possession, and Pogba will thrive in that deeper role. One reason why I think Lingard is known to have good movement and space to receive the ball could be that opponents cant be too bothered about it - sure let him have the ball, he ain't going to do much about it anyway. Just focus their attention on Pogba, and the dangermen like Rashford and Martial.

refs, in EPL especially, has been inconsistent so im not surprised at all

nice thread on reddit about how terrible the ref and VAR were.

https://www.reddit.com/r/reddevils/c...oo_vs_crystal/

some of the incidents proved to have far-reaching effects, like how Zaha, on a yellow, cleared out Pogba before our goal... easily a 2nd yellow and sent off, but nooooo... ref did not go back to the incident after our goal.. and who then assisted their winner a few minutes later???

Mr Nice Guy won't badmouth his boss in the press

even Nev has cut down on slamming Woodward so that Ole wont have a hard time at work, rather say things like “There’s loads of Ander Herreras around. He’s nothing special, honestly. There’s loads of him around.”

sure, there are loads out there, but the club didn't get any. that is the thing.
the Bruno misplacing passes bit just seems like a sorry excuse for not getting the low price the board was looking for for Bruno.

It is like "spend money again for another player", hmm, will the owner going to sack me if I buy one more player......

Even if Pep is United current manager, I believe the result is the same.

lingard just needs to score against lpool or manc and the fans will forgive him for the time being
Since DDG is still fans favourite so we can't really blame him, even though many know it's his miscues letting Palace to win, they will still keep quiet

So with Lukaku and Fellaini out of the club, no jones no Smalling, and with Young little playing time, its very normal for them to find another scapegoat which is Lingard lo

Ya come bash me
I luv Lingard deep deep
