I’ve grown to become a lot more resistant to things in football not going the way I want. Rarely would I consider posting a new thread in the football forum, but here’s goes. There is a lot of talk about us now being so top heavy that we’re a clusterfeck - which holds merit but really doesn’t concern me as much as something else. I’m sat at my desk pondering United at this point of the season, and wondering is anyone else becoming really frustrated with the type of goals we’re conceding regularly? I’m all for giving teams credit for scoring goals against us, but I really struggle when a large proportion of these are self-inflicted. The goal yesterday really underlined my frustrations, because it was avoidable on two occasions. Then you look back at: City at home Bristol away Leicester away Spurs away Stoke away And probably some of the others which have annoyed me less. Mourinho is considered to be a manager who builds a strong defensive unit and that’s where success starts. But we seem to make defending basic set pieces with our giant team a self-harming exercise. Is it time to finally concede that whilst Jones and Smalling are somewhat capable, they are not in any position to be relied upon as first choice defenders? Do we miss Bailly despite his prowess not being aerial dominance? Is the midfield area making the defensive unit work harder than it needs to? Can we be angry that Lukaku is very bad in our own box? Discuss.
