I have no idea why Ole did not attempt to win the game in 90 mins.
Penalties is no good for English teams. I know this. And I don't know why Ole doesn't.
In any case, the EL trophy is notoriously difficult to win. We made the final, so it's a decent stab at the competition.
Ole cost us. Rashford was a passenger the entire 120 minutes, but anyone who's watched us recently could have anticipated that. Then to not make a single sub until extra time is just terrible management.
Dave has some kind of hold over the club or something. It's clear the guy cannot save pens. You have to be ruthless and put Henderson in the goal - not worry about De Gea's feelings. It's a cup game, and everyone knows you might get a pen shootout. Just play the goal keeper who will give you the best chance.
good job to villareal on the penos. embarrassing outing from them otherwise
we had a very positive second half i though, totally dominant and missed some easy chances.
the game fell apart in extra time, just not enough in the tank, then the subs broke any flow we had. really need some options off the bench, the calibre of player chelsea and city can bring up in their front 4.
ah really hard to take vs such a negative side, but the story of our season in many ways, it was one come back too many and teams will always be able to shithouse their way to a draw in europe
You need some balls to manage United and he left on the worst penalty saver I can think of. Say what you like about LVG, he brought Krull on because he was a better keeper for penalties. Utter bottle job.
