I don't want to dwell too much on today's game it was a pretty poor showing but Ole has got his work cut out getting some of these players to work hard consistently over the course of a full season.

The intensity and energy was missing from minute one today. There was no appetite or desire to press or put pressure on the ball and we wanted to play the game like a testimonial.

Matic has been terrible since his return from injury. He makes Fellaini look nimble and mobile. Martial has magic in his boots when the ball is at his feet but far too often he's lethargic and disinterested, the same can be said of Pogba and even Herrera was lacklustre.

The talent in our squad is unquestionable but I am concerned about what I perceive as a lack of effort and endeavour. Our running stats were poor under Jose which I believed was predominantly down to tactics, they have improved slightly under Ole but are still no where near good enough. Ole has consistently said that Utd should never be outworked but this has happened with alarming regularity over recent games.

If we are to have any chance of bridging the gap then the players must treat every opponent with respect and the effort levels should be the same whether we play Watford or Barcelona. I think a few of our players have been guilty in believing in their own hype especially since the PSG game and this attitude must change.

Today was a warning take heed because Wolves won't be so generous.

We have a few coming back from injuries, who need a couple of games.

One hopes that Wolves will be thinking more about the Cup and maybe be both a tad distracted and saving some players. For United, from now to the end of May, every time we play, that game will the most important of the season.

Yeah i agree we were poor today.
Lots of players off the pace but as jred said a few have not played in a while.
Rashford and shaw both had good decent games and seem to have found a good level of consistency.
Matic looked very poor today and herrera likewise.
Mata was a passenger for the most part.
But a win is a win and wolves are the next hurdle. We will need to be better than we were today.

I said to myself at halftime that Martial is too much of a bystander when crosses come in. He does not anticipate and make runs into the six. When Rashford beat the keeper out wide, he was late, and when Mata spun, he was standing and waiting. Lukaku is often guilty of the same thing - standing and waiting instead of anticipating and lunging. Then second half, credit to him, he got himself in the scramble at the goal line and scored.

Hopefully Ole can teach all of the strikers a bot more in the art of getting into goalscoring positions. People always marvel at the last touch, the goal itself, but the best goalscorers have a hunger to get into the right spots. Falcao showed it for us (too bad he had not recovered), as did Chicharito, and Rooney to some extent. Ronaldo has grown more and more into having that quality.

Im really not sure whether he is too dumb or too lazy zidaniel.
He reminds me of bubba gump to be honest.

for the last few weeks herrera has played like lvg is in charge passing backwards all the time and as for pogba ijust do not see how he can be classed as world class.
