There is nothing like the fickleness of fans.
Putting last year's comments together with the last day or so, It is an absolute disaster to get knocked out of a competition that last year was supposedly only a Mickey Mouse cup and not worth anything.
Stuff happens. Move on.

It’s almost as if some people just like to overreact and moan on here, surely not though!

DW and GDS. Personally, I didn't post as our team were not even worthy of a comment. We were shambolic and unfit and unprepared to match their work rate. But if you think that people are overreacting when they see our team out fought and out desired by a lesser team (No disrespect to Bristol city), then it shows how out of touch you are.

If we get blown apart by Barcelona or Real then we can hold our hand up and admit to being beaten by better sides, but we must never think it's ok to be beaten by a side who has more desire and are prepared to work harder. That's unacceptable I'm afraid.

GDS2 - Or maybe people just say what they think and some class it as an over reaction or a moan.

DW20 - For years Utd supporters classed the league cup as a Mickey Mouse cup and as a club we saw it as a chance to play the youngsters, we also ridiculed teams playing on a Thursday night in Europe, but suddenly that changed last year. The realisation that we were no longer serious title contenders made some supporters revalue these competitions last season and competitions that had previously been subject to ridicule were now our best bet for success. Even this season most people would say if they were honest that on Weds night we lost one of our best chances of success. On Weds morning did we have more chance of winning the League Cup, the league or the Champions League?

You call it fickleness, I call it the stark reality of where we are at the moment as a football club, we are no longer the best team and suddenly competitions that were low on Fergie's radar are our best chance of success.
I would suggest the fact that we fielded a team of 10 internationals, not a team mainly made up of Youth players and still lost compounded people's frustrations. Over the 90mins I thought we didn't play well but if luck was on our side we would have won the game.

good post keanooh.

I don't think the fan's are fickle, we just want a team that competes and shows a little of what Utd are all about. We like to see a team performing well and doing their utmost to win the ball back when possession is lost, what we hate is seeing a team backing off and letting the opposition get to our penalty area and having to make last ditch tackles or hope the opposing attackers have an off day or DDG can pull off a string of saves. SAF ensured we had the fittest team in the league during his tenure, the current team looks like one of the most unfit in the top flight. I do not now if there is any concentration on passing training during the training sessions because looking at the matches there can't be any. I'm not looking at the SAF years with rose tinted (I know we sometimes won games when we were fundamentally outplayed) but we got the basics right, the current team has been getting results but IMHO we were outplayed by both West Brom and Bournemouth in our last two league games. The trend of getting outplayed by nearly all of our opponents is a disturbing one and the luck we have been enjoying regarding getting results from such games will surely run out and see us suffering a pasting.

I said surely not so I agree with you.

GDS. It's Christmas and thanks for agreeing
Keanooh and georgie have nailed it. I think there is a disturbing lack of desire and work rate in the team. I mentioned it after the Bournemouth game. We also got out fought against City, Bristol City, Huddersfield, Chelsea. The list goes on.
United definitely look the unfittest team around and this lack of closing down or running into space is at the crux of the matter and I have to say that it irks most of the fans who sit in our stand at the ground.
Question is, does mourinho know this and doesn't care or are the players not giving their all for the cause? Whatever reason, it is the worst attitude to have in life. If they try 100% and fail, then most on here cannot complain. But to go out on the field fully knowing that Bristol City were going to be at it and not bother to match them is disgusting.

Well it’s not something I say often but I agree with Schmid, there does seem to be a lack or effort and urgency. We do loook sluggish compared to pretty much every other team.

I too find myself on the same side of the wall as NoMid. Who'd have thought, eh NM 😀.

22 Dec 2017 18:06:36
Stevie, we’ve succumbed to the dark side. Use the force Stevie.

GDS Post was somewhat tongue in cheek and I think I did get a bit of overreaction though a load of comments I mainly agree with.
We are a little sensitive. Sorry to wind you all up, but I really do think the glass is more than full.

Welcome to the dark side Stevie. 😊. You'll find people like me, stuck in the 70s and wishing we can play football like Docherty's teams. Then we wake up and realise the number 42 56 buses parked in front of DDG and all our midfielders and attackers sat inside the buses as they can't be arsed tracking back or running into spaces. And Jose is the bus conductor asleep due to his own tactics.
Happy Christmas Stevie.
