Dalot replaxed replaced Sancho was ok

DVB was sacrificed to accommodate Varane was still ok

Matic for Bruno to shore up the defending was also ok
JL14 for Ronaldo,,, hmmm no idea why
Martial for Fred with couple of minutes of regulation time to go? totally illogical ..,

Messi lingard is only 18 ie a young boy. That's why he helped the young boys. Let's be kind and forgive him. :o

on a separate note..

Barcelona lost 3-0 at home to Bayern Munich.......without mustering a single shot on target.

Proud of Jlingz. What a sensational assist to kill off the game. The hype for him is real and neverending.

Awful way to lose the game. That's why I really hate seeing anyone passing backwards towards the goalkeeper, sometimes they think it's the easy/safe way out and don't concentrate on the execution. Undone the +1 goodwill he earned over the weekend, and got a +3 hate instead. Too bad for him, I have no sympathies for experienced players because they should know and do better.

Nevertheless, we failed to really control the game, even when AaronWB was still on. It wasn't really fluid, and the few counterattacks we had wasn't used well.

This is one of the few times when I thought DavidDG should've and could've done better to save their first goal.

Didn't many use to say that attack is the best defence? Bringing on AnthonyM might have been for that, to ensure they stay back a bit more to guard against a breakaway.

Let's put things into perspective - it's not like we conceded the goal because there wasn't an extra man to man-mark a player during a corner, or the wall short of 1 during a freekick, or one less defensive-minded player tracking back during a counter by them.

We made things harder for ourselves, but it's only the first game. 5 more to go, so it's not a foregone conclusion in any way. Can we win the other 5? Why not. Didn't we just crash out last season after a good start and winning 3 of the first 4?

Lingard & Sancho are British so the British media & those British pundits will not be too critical even if they don't play well.

The only way Lingard can outshine everyone including CR7 and grab all the headlines is this.. good job

Need to rotate games between Ronaldo & Cavani. 2nd half Ronaldo looked tired & lacked the speed. This was the reason he was replaced by Lingard. If Cavani was not injured he would replaced Ronaldo.
