Kira did nothing wrong
- Jan 27, 2013
He brought Lingard on. Ahead of Greenwood.
He's 36 years old and isolated when things don't go our way. Nobody was mentioning his age as a negative on Saturday?We should be winning that even with 10 men.
Really poor tactics to go five at the back and leave 36 year old Ronaldo isolated upfront on his own.
Acted like he's still managing Cardiff. Top teams with world class managers would've come away with 3 points even with 10 men.what exactly did ole wrong? the red was a gamechanger and the backpass from lingard was a one off. if its 1-1 everyone would have taken it with 10 men
They weren't.How are his subs bad when both goals were a result of 2 individual player's mistakes? We looked very shaky after the red card. The switch to 5 at the back worked out. Dalot and Varane made sense.
Putting in a pacy guy like Lingard made sense to play on the break. My preference would have been Greenwood though, but I get the sub. Matic did well when he came on, I don't have a problem with that. He's fine defensively when we play compact.
I'd personally have put Martial on earlier. His hold up could've been useful in giving us some breathing room.
It's silly to criticize his subs because the result was a loss. They're not directly related.
Both goals came after countless of attack to our goal. With amount of attack they pour on us, some of them bound to go in.
We were down to 10 men bud. In a CL away game. Jlingz didn't make a shit pass because our box was being bombarded, he made a shit pass because he brainfarted under pressure. How that is on Ole is beyond me.
The switch to back 5 was stupid as it cede control of midfield to them even more.
Except, we managed to defend nice and compact after half time. We were very exposed right after the red card.
Either put Pogba back to midfield or replace him or Bruno with Matic at half time. Matic-Fred-VdB would let United gain some control as all three can win and keep the ball. And Fred wouldn't have to exhaust himself to the ground.
I simply disagree, but either way, this can never be proven or disproven. I can look at the impact of the subs however and see our defensive shape was much better after Varane came in. Dalot did decent and was capable of covering the entire flank, much better than Sancho. Also we took out 2 of our weakest players with those subs.
Also, Martial should never come on before Greenwood. Mason have been absolutely on fire this season, and if you need to replace Ronaldo, you put Mason in. His movement and pace would give them something else to think about.
Yeah, I'd have rather seen Greenwood come on instead of Jlingz (for Ronnie). But Lingard's last minute brainfart is'nt on Ole, especially when everyone knows he always does quite decent defensively. Putting on fresh legs in midfield that can defend and is fast on the break is logical. Martial came on so late, his sub is irrelevant. His holdup play being so good is probably why he came on. Regardless, its silly to think Greenwood would somehow have made an impact with the 0 service he was getting because we were down to 10.
Yes this. How people can make all these conclusions about our loss and ignore the main cause (US BEING DOWN TO 10) boggles the mindMade loads of subs today- all of them, most in good time to give the players coming on time to impact the game. Some people just spout rubbish to go along with the narrative. Bad day at the office today largely in part to AWB. Credit to young boys let’s hope they give the others a game too
i didnt compare him to saf. you said that a good manager with a good team would have won even with 10. as saf, pep klopp and whoever lost points when down to 10 they are all shit if you are right. i only wanted to show how over the top the reaction is. it was a bad game but its not down to the manager when a player passes the ball to an oppo in the 95 and gift them the game for example. and also the red is not down to ole. until then we controlled the gameLet's see if he can actually win a trophy before we start comparing him with SAF.
Of course any team down to 10 men can lose a game. However, that's not my point. Good managers implement a style of play that allows them to manage games even with 10 men. I've seen City under Pep dominate possession even with 10 men. Look at how Tuchel got his Chelsea team to see out the 2nd half against Liverpool, they looked in complete control and were still creating chances.i didnt compare him to saf. you said that a good manager with a good team would have won even with 10. as saf, pep klopp and whoever lost points when down to 10 they are all shit if you are right. i only wanted to show how over the top the reaction is. it was a bad game but its not down to the manager when a player passes the ball to an oppo in the 95 and gift them the game for example. and also the red is not down to ole. until then we controlled the game
