I thought we actually started the game off fairly well. Played some slick stuff and moved the ball around quite well. As the game wore on we lost that though, particularly after halftime where it just became scrappy.
Two very poor sides. United lucky to win given their penalty decision and woodwork hit. Huge 3 points and delighted to fall over the line but if that’s as good as we can offer at home to relegation fodda, we’re in for a long hard season. Can’t wait to play away again next weekend
Fantastic! We really needed the 3 points and a home win to break the spell.
Very lethargic performance and it feels like the players are doing the bare minimum to get a result at times. Perhaps smart since the schedule is pretty brutal, most of these players will play another 90 in just 3 days...
1st home win this season in PL..yay! But for the love of god, can anyone see us achieving anything with Ole in charge! A championship level manager in charge of one of the biggest clubs in world football...and his team plays like one.
Message is the same, Ole out. Needed 3 points, but another awful and draining performance that offers no confidence. The players look done with these tactics. No desire, no passion, no vision, no ambition, i could go on. Ole stands on the sides and looks clueless. Why did it take 80 mins to bring DVB on? How did Matic play 90? Why did Martial jog around for 90 mins? We played a double pivot against a relegation team, zero ambition, ole playing it safe to save his job. His benchmark is Lampard, arteta and Mourinho, and he started before all of them. Yet, he has no style, no vision and we play just as bad as before.
Damn ! That was ugly. The last 5-6 minutes added extra embarrassment. We were at home, defending our socks off a goal lead agaist West Brom who are yet to win a single game this season.
Nevertheless, we won our first game at OT. Happy with 3 points but that was a dreadful performance.
