Yeah, if only we had a striker who scored goals for fun against shit opposition. :rolleyes:
You're referring to Lukaku, presumably, the very same guy who stated in a recent interview that he wanted out of United after two games under Mourinho.

His inability to see that Lingard and Pereira aren’t and never will be anything more than below championship level footballers when you put them on the field, is one of the most worrying things. The two of them have literally never played well under him and never will because they’re utter dogshit. While I understand that he has injuries and needs to rest players, why not give some youngsters an opportunity.

Ole's options beyond our best starting 11 are extremely limited, though. Even more so with our most influential players Pogba, Mctominay and Rashford being unavailable.
I don’t understand why this is hard for people to understand? They really see football as Football Manager or FIFA2020 and love to hate.

Squad, thin as it is, is not worse than Brugge, Sheffield, Newcastle etc. People can't understand this either.

For feck sakes. We're playing some shit team from the Belgian league. Under LvG, we put 5 past them.

His game management is the one of the worst I have seen. So he doesn't start Bruno but was running Rashford to the ground and even starting him against Colchester. This is shocking management.

Maguie and Martial apart, the XI we put out today was about the level of Brugge
:lol: of course it is, poor little Ole, he's such a unique and talented manager he doesn't deserve this, he's on the level of Guardiola and Klopp and should be at a top top club winning all the silverware. Ott? Yeah but I cba anymore it's like talking to a brick wall

Lingard, Pereira, Mata are all shit but that shouldn't impact the simple things a manager is expected to instill like organization, movement and overall tactical plan. There's so many teams that play much better football than we do with less quality. How anyone watching this game can still think Ole is the right manager is beyond me. Improving the quality of our players will mean we have more individual moments of brilliance but overall as a team we will remain just as inconsistent.

The guy never said anything of the sort, simply that the Brugge squad is equal to our starting lineup tonight minus Maguire and Martial.

Weird.

Absolutely shocking performance. You don't need superstars to play decent football.

Another dreadful performance.
Good away performance away from home.

But worse then City, Tottenham, Chelsea and so on? So what?

For feck sakes. We're playing some shit team from the Belgian league. Under LvG, we put 5 past them.
They are not shit. A CL team. We are playing better then them. And what happened years ago has nothing to do now. Don’t live in past and don’t be hater.

HELLO
Whats the sense in resting players when youre home to watford next, to prolong the difficulty in the second leg when youve Everton away after it?

Has to go now. Sorry.
The next six games I’d say will be enough to determine rather he’s here next season or not. A mixture of big teams in City and Spurs and weaker teams like Brighton, Watford and Sheffield. If his run against the teams he can counter attack all day ends and his run against the cannon fodder continues, we may be closer to 15th than 4th by the end of it. Pep has definitely figured him out anyway.

All starting to feel really sour for me. Never wanted to dislike him but if I had to use 3 words to describe him as a manager I'd go with stubborn pathetic and naïve.


Has nothing about him but poor decisions

Yes, we also won only 1 out of 4 away knockout ties on the way to winning it in 16/17. Getting through is all that matters. Even better if some players get a rest.
Rest from what?

We don't look like going through with performances like these. Led by a terrible manager.

The most insane post I’ve ever read. It doesn’t seem to understand the concept of “resting” which is mental.

You think that Watford is easy game for us? At OT where we need to create something and not just sitting deep and waiting some lucky goal?

That's the joke.
Jesus wept, we rested some players and drew away to Brugge. Hardly the end of the world. We’ll comfortably beat them at home.

Could have brought in Bruno little earlier but a good result away from home.

We've just had two weeks off. Playing one of Fred or Bruno instead of the unholy trinity together wouldn't be that risky at this point.

Surely that applies to the “needs more transfer window crew”

He has no clue about coaching a side at all. We do not know how to pass and how to move off the ball. It is always left to the brilliance of an individual to score a goal. He should be sacked ASAP if only for one reason. Playing Lingard who should have been the first one out of the door, even before Fellaini.

Was thinking the same thing while watching it. Lingard, Pereira, Mata, Dalot. I'm not even sure they'd get in the Brugge side
