we deserved to win the game, i thought first half we played fantastic footy, long time i haven't seen us play that kinda footy, very exciting and entertaining but we lacked concentration in the second half and allow them to grow into the game, we regained composure and possesion but after the goal, what's up with Pogba? why Rashford didn't take the penalty? he scored last weekend, a point it is but i am excited about the way we play, i feel like now we have an identity, a defined way of play not like before that we were shambles, very excited to see the players Ole goes after the next transfer window. one or two more midifielders and we will be up there challenging i think.

Agree0 Disagree0

We had good possession but this fantastic football in the first half, how many shots did it bring us? How many in the second half?

No we didn't.
If you don't as he goals you don't deserve to win.
Did Chelsea deserve to beat us last week as they had loads better chances than we did. No because they didn't score goals.
We played ok but rarely threatened. Nothing new. If and when you have a very poor midfield there are lots of games that you will struggle to create chances despite being relatively comfortable.

Lingard struggles against teams who sit deep.
It's time to start Mason.

Another frustrating aspect was poor set piece deliveries. We must be making use of Maguire's heading prowess.

Finally, there are loads of positives like playing out from the back, energy, etc, .
Last year we struggled to get a grip against Wolves, but this time we played well but the creativity was missing in the final third.
We look to be heading in the right direction.

TrueRedDevil, Perreira is the solution to the set-piece issue, at least for now. I'd give him a serious run in the attacking midfield role, which the option to switch with Pogba if needed (like in the second half last night, when Wolves changed their approach to neutralise Pogba's influence from the deep role) . But it seems Ole is intent on playing Lingard, he spoke before the game that he wanted James to play, so the obvious choice was to leave out Perreira and move Lingard to the centre, there seemed to be no consideration to drop Lingard.

Played well last night an other step forward, lads are going to make a few of the doom and gloom look a bit daft .
Martial was really good last night, linders couldt get in the game and james looked what he is still very raw .
Decent team wolves with some decent players but we got on top of them for most of the game.
Still early days but we already look better imo.

If your a Utd fan then you shouldn't be complaining about last night's performance.

Utd dominated the game throughout apart from the 10 min spell when Wolves scored.

Ole made it clear that it would take 2 or 3 windows to get things right.

We can't expect the finished article yet.

The team is defending better and dominated possession last night. The missing ingredient is that the final ball was missing. This suggests we still have work to do in getting a play maker.

Wolves were not defensive they had periods when they couldn't get the ball.

Ole has shown his intention. Rojo, Jones and Smalling can't make the squad. Neither can Darmian or Sanchez. Matic and Young are only on the bench. So it is becoming clear where these players are starting to be with Ole. We may move on Sanchez and Rojo in this window but maybe on loan.

The problem is that these players are on large wages and when they leave Utd the only way for them is down. Generally they will only play for smaller clubs on lower wages, so getting rid will take time. Due to FFP we can keep signing players without getting rid of more. We may have to accept that sometimes you get rid of some players in one window and sign a replacement in the next window.

We need to be patient and be in this for the long term in order to get things right.

I have so much more optimism than 12 months ago. It's not perfect but things are improving for me.

Stop the complaining.
