WHAT THE feck WAS THAT!!!

That is the, ‘City are the level we want to aim for’ comment from Moyes for me! We weren’t o,aging City, Bayern, Juventus, Real or Barcelona. We played Crystal fecking Palance and he used that as reason for the poor performance.

Absolutely gutless and pathetic!

Imposing his style on a game is a foreign concept to Ole, seeing as he doesn't have one.

More like the ‘we must make it hard for Newcastle’.

Waiting for someone to agree with Ole too, telling us how because Palace have done City over at the Eithad recently that their saviour is right.

Thought he would say “the conditions made it hard for us”.

This was equally as awful.

I stopped watching his interviews and pressers long time ago. Probably that's why I'm not pissed off at them anymore. Barely even know what he says in them these days.

Well, a few weeks ago he was still saying that he'd be pushing City all the way and the race wasn't run, so I suppose he has to make excuses now that they've sailed off into the sunset. It's pretty pathetic though.

A few weeks before that when we were first he said we weren't thinking about the title. We've won 2 games since I think

His former Norwegian hero has clearly taught him far to well. All hail the inventor of Norwegian football, Drillo Olsen. Feck me Ole that interview was a Trainwreck.

You should post the full quote, he said Palace could do that when you don’t have the quality and tempo we should have had in our play. He went on to criticise how cheaply we gave the ball away and how slow we were. Standard managerial speak. Nothing like Moyes.

ha ha, a defensive mid maybe? A fecking defender? :lol:

It’s actually impressive he can only imagine bringing on an attacker for an attacker.
I was yelling exactly that! Matic or AWB could have gone for the last 10 mins. Get another wide player in and have Rashford and Greenwood central. But no we have to worry about the dominant Palace players! FFS!

My God. Just sums him up.

Should have no business in be being our manager If he couldn’t see that the players on the pitch were absolutely horseshite and showed no threat at all

Sometimes the caf really overreacts but in this case, that is a very disappointing attitude for Ole to take.

Holy shit. That’s outrageous. Seriously. I try not to be too melodramatic but the fact we’ve a manager in charge of Manchester United who wouldn’t even consider swapping a midfielder or defender for an attacker in the closing minutes of a game where we desperately need a goal is unbelievable.

Especially from someone who keeps talking about “the United way” I’ll be stewing on that one all night now. Genuinely upset about that. Cheers.

Did he really say that Palace made us play the way they want us to play?

While I don't see anything wrong with inital comment (CP did set up in a way which made them hard to break down), worrying part is that Ole took that situation as given without even trying to change possible outcome.

Shuffle players around, put them in different formation, try to be more unpredictable, put subs sooner, try ANYTHING to change outcome instead of "hey looks like we'll draw today, better sit thight and look stupid".

Basically saying "as a manager I have no solution to teams sitting back". In line with Moyes' infamous "I don't know what we have to do to win" after the defeat at Stoke.

We already knew that Ole. What I can't get is why you're in the United dug out.

Why post the full quote when it doesn't suit your agenda eh?!?

I agree with you, nothing in this at all.

I YouTube'd his post match interview, watched about 10 seconds and turned it off. It just isn't worth it. He is lucky to still be at this club, how he can go in winning runs, then go in a patch of games in a looking so bad, I don't get it, just rinse and repeat. I pray we can stay second, I really worry with our form.
