    This one is on Ole and the Ref. Why risking with Ighalo when 1:2 was much better than 1:3? From TOP of the table to Europa league.

    But even if it was a refereeing mistake in that instance, Fred obviously didn't act as if he was on a yellow, lunging in like that into a 50/50. If he hadn't been sent off for that, he would've been for the next one that didn't get the ball.
    He wasn't lunging in the player, though. He miss controlled the ball, then stretched to reach it as it drifted away from him. It wasn't even a foul, let alone a yellow.

    Can’t blame Ole for that, we were playing well and dominating why change it, martial is a waster and then it all changed from a corner and silly sending off

    Bit harsh to blame him for the second miss, they were throwing bodies there.

    The first one was awful, no argument there.
    We still know he can bury those chances. But today he didn't think. I think it's just some kind of pressure. We will get better. We can still qualify without issue. But we would need to do a big game against Leipzig, and now the game against City will be a problem.

    Yes I agree. DDG beaten too easily especially on the first goal, and to be honest, I don't know why Dean Henderson doesn't start the game. DDG has had too much of a free pass at Old Trafford for poor performances.
    We need to try DH for a number of games.

    I didn't know anything and neither did you.

    Fred didn't get sent off because of a poor challenge leading to a second yellow, he got sent off because the ref is a cnut. A world of difference mate.
    He got sent off because he had an awful touch and ended up chasing it, looked worse than it was. He gave the ref a decision to make by lunging in. Clutching at straws blaming the ref mate.

    We aren't a team to be title contenders (EPL and ECL) but with these players we could do a lot better.

    Martial was poor but Ole is the man who kept the most obvious red card of all time on the pitch.
    Got to say that in the modern game it is a red card. But was Fred being aggressive? If I had never seen a football match in my life before, I would say a yellow card was fair. But we have all seen players sent off for a push with the head.

    Martial was awful, missed one sitter and another great chance, should of taken Fred off at half time in my opinion.

    Wasted opportunity.

    He got the ball though to be fair, so ultimately it was the refs fault. But either way, we had more than enough chances to be ahead at that point.

    Every chance it dribbled under his foot.
    And it would have been pure luck. But to criticise him is laughable.

    Thought he could have saved the first one, especially when he saved that one just before the corner

    He was lucky to be on the pitch because Ole let him on more like
    Exactly. Lucky to be shown only a yellow after the head butt, Fred should have calmed down. But he didn’t. There were two other potentially bookable tackles before the final straw.

    Ole will be walking off and asking himself: "Why the hell did I leave Fred on?" It is not about hindsight. It was plain as day he needed hooked.
    We went 2 1 down when he was still on though so it might have not mattered.

    Bad finishing cost us that game. Martial was good last season. He's been shit this year.

    Ole got his tactics right ahead of the game, but his game management has really hurt us tonight.

    A smarter manager could have avoided the red and PSG's third. Not saying we would have won, and we were very good for large parts of the game and missed chances to put it to bed.

    But Ole, his lack of subs and bizarre ones when we were doing ok have cost us.

    No, it was so obvious he was going to be sent off. The ref is human, he gave Fred a chance, not a second one.
    Even in the first half Fred was walking on ice, it was so obvious to sub him at half time.

    I actually think we have a squad that could be title contenders. Martial- Cavani-Rashford with Fernandes pulling the strings is scary. But we need a tactician who can organise a defence. And undertands that when defending corners, you cannot have all 11 players in your penalty box because clearance come straight back at you. You need an out ball. But basic things like this do my head in. We win our game in hand we are two points behind Spurs.

    Bruno was awful as well, but just him screaming at Ole to make a sub redeemed him for me.

    He was going to bring him on then Fred got sent off, then Marcus went off.
    I get that but Fred is a walking error if ever I’ve seen one.
    Soton; error leads to a goal
    Tonight should have been off in the first half, stays on and plays like he doesn’t care.

    Shouid have been subbed on 60 if anytime or at HT.

    Can we just stop blaming everyone
    Sometime you lose in football
    Did not deserve to lose imho
    We will win next week
    Let’s get behind the Team
    I think we played better tonight than we did in Paris
    That's a bit too much. We did not play well the full 90 mins. We played well in bits and parts and so did PSG. They scored from their lucky chances. We fecked up ours.
    So it seems someone needs to be blamed.
