Interesting stat, Pogba's first penalty yesterday was our first shot on target in 3 hours of football. Imagine the reaction to Mourinho if he was still manager. I've said I hope Ole does well and I would give him time, but we are no better now than under Jose. We don't attack with any intensity, and don't get numbers forward. One example yesterday Martial ran with the ball to the edge of the box, he looked up, Rashford was at the edge of the box, Lukaku out to the right, and every body else further back, hense within 3 passes we were back at half way. Imagine Stirling in that position, he would look up and see 5 or 6 players in and around the box. I hope Ole is strong enough to ditch the lazy players and build a more dynamic team.

The football is no better than it was under jose because we still have all the same players. But the results are so much better because the players are motivated and are obviously trying harder.
There is a void in quality. But they are muddling through as supporters its all we can ask until as you say we have a significant coolest clearout.

I’m glad your on this site ken as you do all the work I would feel obliged to do if you weren’t.

I accept its the same players Ken, but can these players not be told to get forward in numbers to help the attack, Jose was criticized for his defensive tactics, but Ole still has more behind the ball than in support. I expect more adventure from Ole, but i'm not seeing it.

Theres a clear distinction pre and post that 1-0 win at spurs. Before that ole was just a man to come in and put smiles on faces and play entertaining football with no pressure to get results.

You could seen back then we were pressing higher, full backs were playing very high and we were taking a lot more risks.

After that 1-0 win at spurs and the possibility of finishing in the top 4 not being so bleak, everything has become resulted oriented and the style reflects that. We have sat back and countered in pretty much every game as we did under jose.

Only hope is with a full pre season under his belt ole and the team revert back to the pre spurs style of pressing high and taking risks on the ball.

Sandwiched in between two UCL games with Barcelona and with the suspension and injuries the game yesterday was always a potential banana skin.

Rojo coming in to play left back was always going to be less adventurous than Shaw.

We lined up in effectively a 4-1-4-1 with Fred holding, Pogba, Mata, Jesse and Lingard supporting Lukaku. This was not a defensive line up. Nor do I believe the players were told to go out and sit behind the ball or not support.

When you lack control in a game or the other team is threatening to score with a counter it forces players back. They came to old Trafford and played well yesterday in a game where Pogba and Martial and others failed to stamp any authority on the game. Lots of nearly attacks, with no real chances created.

This team is not going to play champagne football week in week out. 3 points, no injuries and big game on Tuesday. Move on to the next one.

On the money, looking at the bigger picture .

Interesting that the match of the day analysis showed the number of times we had large numbers in the box and that meant we were left a bit open which led to a very exciting end to end game that could have gone either way.

We have created plenty of chances just not been clinical. Strange how people see what they want to see rather than what actually happens.
