box to box primary role is not a DM

DM role has been given to MCT
He is enjoying a free role whether he wants to help out in attack or defend is up to him.
Hence you see a big hole when MCT is moving up or sideways to cover someone else usually is AWB.
Thats how Dano got sent off for taking MCT out.
I would say Pogba is lazy if only he has half what Dan James can give then we would be winning games.
Our midfield is not protecting the defenders.
Ole introduced Matic to cover them and at least give some height to the team.
Also to push the lazy pogba up front.

Ole's team shape more like 2 deep midfielders, to make up for what the team lacking

Martial injured how to start

Pogba is playing deep playmaker role

Defensive is all up to mctominay

Maybe Ole should change to 433 and let Pogba roam forward to provide more creativity and potency upfront.

Seems like he can do more damage up the field and he’s useless in defending anyway.

opta stats show that man utd's defence is ranked 3rd

offence is ranked 9th - this excludes all penalties awarded, converted or not
offensive play has been awful since SAF retired

You think so easy to be manager. If 1 key player not in the mood to play (eg Pogba or DDG) the team will struggle to win.
even during SAF time, one key player missing is enough to lose the title

1994-95 - cantona suspension for kung fu kick, Manutd finished 2nd in League and FA Cup

in other seasons, 2 months hamstring injury during run-in to Giggs and 8 months suspension for missing drug test Rio Ferdinand, both seasons the titles were lost to Arsenal

No ppl to spread passes at the back..If play matic means Pogba need to do more pressing and cover

I dun think he likes that

Defensively we are fine

It's the attack. No clear cut chances created

That is what i am thinking too
We should put pogba up front to create nothing into something.
Leave fred/gardner/MCT as holding players.

at the moment we are using Pogba to move the ball from our own half.

After 4 games Liverpool & Man City are pulling ahead from the rest of the teams. Going to be either of them winning the title this season. Man Utd expected to lose 12 points (total 4 games) against Liverpool & Man City home & away.

Saw this on fb, When Liverpool play:

Crossed in by Trent, ohh an own goal! 1-0. Oh the defender passes it to Mane, it's 2-0!

When Man Utd play:

Crossed in by James, flicked up by Vestergaard, overhead kick clearance by Yoshida straight to Romeu who does 44 keepy uppies around the United attack then lofts it over to Cedric who clears the ball with his nob and deflects off a seagull, United throw in.

Kane scored from the penalty spot against Arsenal. Now Tottenham 2-0. Most of the time players will be able to score from the penalty spot.
