Still have to say this. We need a real MR or RW to balance the squad.

DDG has been leaky this season. For Spain and for us.

Pretty good. Something worth trying. But personally, Sanchez is done. He can't shoot from far so placing him as no 10 is a waste. He can work as a free roaming no 9.

Lukaku can go home. Buy a right wing and a no 10.

Oh btw, luke Shaw still sucks and needs to go. And I assume Valencia has played his last match for united already. Same for Jones. (For the tactic to work better)

What’s wrong with Shaw?????

Don't have proper one for a long time.

Exactly. If I can see our team park bus all the way to UCL final and in the game, we bring on ten defenders to protect 1-0 lead I also don't care. Shouting we are the champion is much more fun than shouting we are beautiful to watch.


Sad thing is poor style poor result

We did that in his first season. By the 2nd season other teams will become wiser, once we get discovered and concede a goal, there's no plan B except for long ball.

That's whats happening now isn't it? We keep conceding a goal first because the opposition keeps piling the pressure, get their first goal and we have to come out from our shells to chase the game.

Lately we have been conceding from set pieces, so somehow the team is not good enough to defend from that. Why do we keep playing a tactic which exposes our weakness even further instead of playing to our strength? We are inviting teams to attack our weakened armor and somehow expecting a win?

Play defensive.. still let opponents score first. Most of the time we have the size/height advantage but yet cannot defend set pieces properly :(

There, you said it. The team is not good enough.

Can JM play better football using his tactics with better players? Yes.
Can JM get more players? Ed says yes but acted no. Fans here say no.

Can we use existing players and play differently? Yes.
Can JM use existing players and play differently? No, he told us so every week with his selection and tactic. But fans here doesn't want to see it and insisting JM must change.

Lastly, can we use existing players and fight for the title? Table doesn't lie.

You got read the whole sentence? I was talking about set pieces where we are not good enough to defend that. It can be down to how the players are setup to defend set pieces as well via man marking or zonal marking. The instruction given to them and what they did on the training ground. It can also be the opposition outwitted JM's tactics to score in set pieces.

All i can say is our set pieces suck when it comes to both defending a set piece and when we get one and are attacking (our corners and free kicks). It's like we kept seeing Rashford taking corner kicks and wonder why he keep taking them even though he seldom clears the first defender. Then we had Jones taking corners as well....Our freekicks started improving when Mata is taking them...that's if he's playing.

Looks like no Europe for us next season unless we win the UCL, Europa or FA Cup.

our set piece defending has been awful for many years now, not sure what is really the issue.
perhaps nobody on that pitch to keep them organized?
