Jose has no excuses today. This was as poor a Chelsea team as I have seen in a long time. To man mark hazard in he first half was a poor decision. We were effectively attacking with ten men. Today showed exactly why jones needs to leave in the summer. He and smalling are such liabilities and jones lost us the game. Don’t know how he has been picked ahead of smalling for england. No excuses from Jose, he had to cbs in bailly and lindelof who he could have selected yet he didn’t. We lost the game because of his decisions.

Feel sorry for rashford. Is is a completely different player to Lukaku and I don’t know why Jose tried to play exactly the same tactics as if Lukaku was playing. Expecting rashford to be a target man is amateur imo. However, he really needs a loan where he is playing regularly because his finishing and decision making is not good enough. I personally think he is better on the left than centrally. Thought martial looked decent when he came on. Hope he stays. Both full backs were very poor today and can’t wait till we have two new ones.

Today was disappointing but we move on. I will be honest my faith in Jose took a massive dent today. But he is not an idiot and he knows what needs to be done. No excuses next season because he has to win the league or at least improve the style of play because it is a really chore watching united these days. Thank god this season is over.

So you think today was worse than the 2 CL games against Seville?
Did we learn from that.

19 May 2018 22:29:55
Thought Smalling played quite well.

Good question jred. I think we were better today than against Sevilla. Our problem is we never take the initiative early in the game. Takes for us to go a goal down to spark into life. I do think once we sort our full backs out we will improve because we lack so much width and our full backs are meant to be the ones that provide it. Nether of them has a particularly good delivery which is costing us. Valencia was in many attacking positions but delivered such poor quality. And corners are a real issue. We must be the most ineffective team in the league from set pieces. Which is ridiculous as we have a team of giants.

Eric I agree smalling was decent today but he isn’t the long term solution. Seems Jose begs to differ. I don’t think we deserved to lose today because Chelsea didn’t really offer much. But a mistake from us and some hazard magic sealed it for them. Hazard is some player would love him at united.

We should maybe leave the attacking to the attackers ?
Do they not have a job to do or is it just the full backs?

Takes us to go a goal down to kick into life? It's the same players tho only thing that changes is the tactics after we go a goal down .

19 May 2018 23:45:22
Corners? That's the problem .

Man marking hazard is not that crazy, he is their only threat!

Hazard and Salah both take passes that our front three get all game and turn them into goals. They make something out of nothing, and we have struggled to do that all season.

Next year we will be better again, but city will have to drop more points for anyone to stand a chance.

Playing at walking pace doesn't help either.

Jred depends how you want your teams to play. Full backs are so important in the modern game especially if your wingers are always cutting in and playing narrow, which our always do. Nobody tests the defence and makes runs beyond the last man. Everything is played in front of the opposition and it’s easy to defend. This is purely a tactical problem though which Jose needs to change so the blame is with him. We always struggle when the onus is on us to break down the opposition team. When we have more possession we lack the quality and creativity.

Dodgy there was no need to man mark hazard yesterday. Chelsea were offering very little going forward. Was classic Jose yesterday try to nullify the opposition rather than try cause problems for them. We had a lot of attacking talent on the pitch who should have been asking Chelsea questions. We didn’t ask any. Anyway we move on and get the right signings in and build on this season.
