Always the case with Matic and Pogba. Energy and controlled possession is exactly what you don't get from them two.Glad we are winning but that performance was hideous. Horrible scrappy game we can barely keep possession seem to be second best a lot. As usual the other team looks more energetic than us.
Ah ok nice! I think we should go for the 3rd because I don't trust us in the ayWe did the exact same thing at Everton. 1-0 down early on and then 2-1 within the first half.
But he backed himself. Surely that counts for something?That Beckham advert is - even by fragrance advert standards - pure and utter cringe.
Hopefully we go another goal up and we can keep him on and them fresh for Leeds.We ought to be taking Matic off at half-time for that atrocious display, but doubt we'll be seeing either Fred or McT before the 75th minute.
we look ready to concede again. Very unimpressive at the back and at CM. Not protecting the ball and some awful decision making. These players need a rocket up them.Glad we are winning but that performance was hideous. Horrible scrappy game we can barely keep possession seem to be second best a lot.

This. It's not like Matic is providing any defensive contribution whatsoever. He is so done at the top level, it's unreal we keep starting him.I’d rest Matic for Donny, who can do much more for us in attack than Nemanja can. Expand our lead and then bring on Scotty or whoeverwe have on the bench to close shop.
But it didn't happen.Could have been 2-0 down to what is the worst team in the league by a country mile. We might as well just let teams walk the ball into our net at kick off and get it done with in the first minute. Lucky they lost Berge. Will be very disappointing if we don't score at least 2-3 more in the second half now though.
Last time I felt remotely comfortable with our defence was Smalling & Blind.I can't remember when that wasn't the case. Maybe a brief period of an odd pairing, was it Jones and Rojo, under Mourinho. But that was a month or two at most. It's been years since we looked anywhere close to convincing at the back.
