That was our chance to widen the gap to Chelsea and all but killing Liverpool and Arsenal's chance of catching us and we blew it, for once Mourinho can't be blamed for the result, we kept missing sitter after sitter.

Especially pissed at rashford and Smalling, 91st minute of the game with a 3 on 3 situation rashford cost us the game, I know Smalling was injured but why on earth then was he marking their biggest player sit out play in the mf don't try to be a hero.

I think this one is on Mou. If he hadnt gone "busparking", and kept Mata and Lingard on we would have scored eventually, and we would have had another sub for Smalling.

And why didn't he take Smalling off the pitch and get Matic back for Smallings position for the last couple of minutes? that's just bad match/ man management.

he put mkhi on for Mata how is that bus parking, Smalling fiasco was players doing manager can't do much with 3 mins to go, that moment showed a clear lack of leaders on pitch, matic should have taken responsibility for that seeing the game out.

There was no bus parking for God's sake it was open from beginning to end a really good game imo we were so so wasteful and we got punished simples

I'm as disappointed as anyone but can we not just see what happened rather than the constant digging.

6 shots on target from 19 taken tells you why we didn't win this game. We should have been out of sight by the 94th minute.

The mix up for their equaliser was down to a lack of leadership on the field. Smalling should have communicated his lack of mobility better. Jones eventually realised and tried to re-jig the defence but Herrera wouldn't go to RB. No one wanted to take responsibility, and as a result Leicester had a chance and took it.

Forget who was on the touchline could you see that happening if one or two of Schmeichel, Vidic, Evra, Neville, Ferdinand, Bruce, Irwin or Keane was on the pitch?

Absolutely not. We lack leaders, we lack fighters.

24 Dec 2017 08:49:38
CSM- totally agree, a lack of leadership it was an error you wouldn't expect to see in Sunday morning football let alone the premiership. It's been mentioned on here by several people in the past about a lack of leaders in the team, yesterday highlighted the issue. Someone on the pitch needs to stand up, if they had, Smalling would have found himself stuck out wide no where near the defence.
All that said how many more times are we going to let teams of the hook missing chances, against WBA it almost cost us yesterday it did.

Last 2 games and losses can be summarized by one thing. zero composure when we have clear scoring opportunities.

People here seem to get a hard on by blaming the manager but the subs are not defensive and players just not looking up to make a simple pass to a wide open teammate or just having some calmness and taking their clear scoring opportunity is on them.

I think Rash has been utter sh. t and he should be benched. He is super selfish and rarely looks to find a teammate in a better position. I know he is 20 but so what, the facts are the facts.

I said on group chat they are going to get mauled by jose after the game and given what he has said publicly i would imagine he has ripped their spoiled asses in private. Expect a very different performance next game.

Time to sell a few in jan for sure and bring in a couple, that always gets the message across very clearly.

xfiles i thought i was the only one thinking that about rashford, since he has been benched for martial in the last few games he seems to want to do nothing but try and score and it is having a bad impact on the team.

24 Dec 2017 09:47:05

Martial is a much better player and has a lot more dimensions to his game and also always looks to pass to a teammate in a better position. Rash is very one dimensional head down and run.

He also has free reign brought in towards the end of games when there is tons of space for him to run into. He is super selfish and Lukaku must be exasperated given the last 2 games and how a simple pass will have him probably score and being ignored.

Not sure what he was thinking when 2 on 2 with lukaku making a run and he just stopped and pulled it back. The last 2 games is all on them and not the manager imo. You can lead a horse to water but you can't force them to drink as they say.

What Jose said was spot on and about time. BTW Fergie also did a lot of that so don't know where people are getting this stuff from that Fergie never said anything in public. Personally saw him rip them after games saying their performance was unacceptable and it will be sorted. usually meant major changes to line up and certain players being in the dog house.

‘Bus parking’ is he new buzz Work though lads, even though the game was end to end and we could have won 6-1 we parked the bus because we made a sub.

24 Dec 2017 10:02:04

People talking nonsense imo. I watch the other teams too and we have more opportunities (except city) . We have so many chances but so so poor in our finishing and decision making and its the players. Its fashionable to blame Jose though. Yesterday should have been 5-1 or 6-1 and and a no contest and people would be praising and gushing about our attacking style.

The reality is we have lots of games in the festive period and you need some calmn, tough seasoned players who can handle the stress both physically and mentally and this group is very new, young and not coping with it well.

What is driving me crazy watching them at the moment is lack of composure and calmness when defending or attacking.

24 Dec 2017 20:38:43
Rashford is a centre forward not a winger Jose changed he s position and he has gone backward since so who s to blame.

24 Dec 2017 21:29:54
I may have been a bit rash on my words, but i was still a bit moody from the game. I didn't exactly mean parking the bus, but we seem to lose our momentum when Lingard and Mata was subed. I think if they had stayed on, we would have eventually scored.

I have a thing of writing in anger and it seldom comes out great. 😁

Merry Christmas guys!
