DvB was on the bench. He wouldn't be on the bench if he had COVID.Better than midweek. 3 points and 3 goals.. we took our foot of the gas in 2nd half but I thought we controlled the 2nd half better than the first.
why can’t McTominay play with that energy every week.
shaw look better than Telles.
i thought Eric did ok but Maguire is so easily beaten on the ground it’s getting embarrassing.
can only think DVB had bad covid as it was a game for him to at least come on.?????
Our current performances are the sort that when we do lose an upcoming game it won't be a surprise to anyone, regardless of if we have won the previous 3 or 4. Unfortunately that's just the level we're at right now, it's hard to make changes/develop while going through a lot of games in quick succession but hopefully we see small improvements each time.Same shit being said before Ole got sacked. Performances didn’t matter because we won. Except they do matter because eventually luck runs out.
Step by step process. Klopp didn't come in and have immediate success. It took a while for the players to truly grasp the system. Give him a few months to work on these muppets and we might see more of his style in the play.Bit worrying we didnt press that much. Kicking long then at goal kicks. We took our foot off the gas in the second half and had better control of the game. But i dont know, in the long term if we play like this we are in trouble.
I had the feeling watching the game last night that Ralf asked them to go back to basics and not to push the pressing and to not play out from the back, to avoid bringing unnecessary pressure.Bit worrying we didnt press that much. Kicking long then at goal kicks. We took our foot off the gas in the second half and had better control of the game. But i dont know, in the long term if we play like this we are in trouble.
Yeah and how dumb is it to kick long onto the head of Tarkowski? Sometimes I think we are clueless.Bit worrying we didnt press that much. Kicking long then at goal kicks. We took our foot off the gas in the second half and had better control of the game. But i dont know, in the long term if we play like this we are in trouble.
Very good assessment.I think that over the last few months our confidence has been eroded to zero, there may be many reasons for this including the players themselves, I think the embarrassing results against City and in particular Pool are still reverberating in the players minds, right now we look like a team playing with no belief who capitulate as soon as things start to go against them, the Burnley performance typified this, we looked so timid at times even when we were 3 goals to the good, if you compare our performance last night to the kind of performances we see city and pool putting in, even Chelsea and Spurs there is a gulf of difference, there is no cohesion or dominance, we won 3-1 but the score could have easily been 3-3 (or 6-3 if Ronaldo was on it)
We need a run of luck and Ralf to try and get the players believing in themselves again, Ralf needs to settle on a formation and system and drill it into the players
Miserably post. Never happy with nothingIt was a win, but I don't see any issue with being concerned with the performance. Burnley still had quite a lot of chances to score, and, to be honest, there wasn't anywhere near enough difference in level of performance between Manutd and Burnley.
I still don't think we controlled the game at any point, which isn't great. There needs to be a big improvement against Wolves and Aston Villa, or we may be played off the park again.
