Yet another massively over hyped manager/player this forum pined for.I really wanted EtH to be the one. He’s not it.
Because we have Rashford who decides to do 55 stepovers before looking up and attempting to find a pass.How are Brighton players always so free, while we always look like we have no options?
I’m starting to sound a right miserable sod but I’ve had enough of these players, how can we not have a defined way of playing where everyone knows their positions and the players around them. We just throw 11 players out there and let them do what the want. Disgraceful.At some point we have to start looking at our supposed stars. Bruno and Rashford are just all over the damn place.
Last season our goal difference was negative for half of it. I always felt like GD is a better barometer for the quality of a team than anything else. Feck knows how we finished 3rd. We were appalling since FebruaryOnly 5 teams in the league have a worse goal difference than us.
Yeah but Hojlund would actually look for people in better positions when he got the ball. Rashford just isn't interested in doing anything except shooting 90% of the time. It's fine when he's scoring but there's far too many games when this approach will lose us points/potential goals.We basically played with two strikers independent of each other today, rather than a partnership.
It’s almost like they care more about winning than getting the goal themselves.Oh look, Brighton's wide players pass the fecking ball to their teammates in the box! What a wild idea! Quick, someone take notes of this novel, revolutionary concept! Let's sign a forward only to have one winger shoot 99/100 times and on the opposite flank, we have Scott McTominay who had about seven passes the entire first half. Breathtaking stuff.
It took a bit of class and courage from a youngster that rarely even features to get us on the scoresheet. Moments FC, baby.
We’re in an era where we are nowhere near City. They are a club plucked from obscurity and pumped with billions generated elsewhere. We are a club plucked from extreme success and milked for the billions that generated. Should have accepted that by now.
