What's with the brainfarts honestly? Is it inexperience, lack of intelligence or tactical prowess? Last night another was added to the list, I'm kicking the man whilst he's down but I thought it would be interesting to keep an archive to look back on, these are all since Feb 2021 apart from the last one:

- Played 5 at the back with one forward with 10 men vs Young Boys, making it impossible to hold onto possession past the halfway line for 45 minutes
- Took Fred off for the last 6 minutes vs Young Boys and played Lingard in his position instead, Lingard fecks up and the game's lost
- Doesn't make a sub until the 100th minute in a European final vs Villareal, who made 5 subs in the 90 minute period, loses on pens.
- Took Greenwood off for Tuanzebe vs Everton without instructing anyone to cover the right wing, fecked with the shape the space was exploited and we conceded late again to make it 3-3.
- Brought Dan James off for Shaw vs Milan first leg, fecked with the team shape and was all Milan after that point, conceded late goal.
- Rested Bruno before international break vs Leicester in a quarter final, had 2 defensive CMs on the pitch up until the 85th minute when we were already 3-1 down.
- Doesn't sub Fred off at half time vs PSG when he should've been sent off, Fred gets sent off, PSG score and win.

Shouldn't really be added to a "brain fart" list, when one player recklessly left us with 10men for an hour, and another played one of the worst backpasses in history to cost us a creditable draw in the 92nd min.

You can imagine the moans if he'd left Ronaldo on meaning we were defending with 9 in effect for the last 20.

There's enough threads to cover this kind of discussion.
