The most worrying thing from watching that tonight was the look on the young lads faces. We've seen it with Martial, Rashford, Pogba, De Gea. They look utterly miserable and devoid of ideas. Now we're seeing it on the faces of Greenwood and Gomes.

The young lads had not got 1 decent snr player to turn to it was hard to watch.
I can honestly say I've absolutely no idea what ole should do.
I agree the players look miserable. They look like the weight of the world is on their shoulders.
Fred leaves me speechless for all the wrong reasons matic and mata both look well past their best, Did nothing to support the 3 kids in front of them.
Pogba rash mctom maguire young awb all fresh for sunday so there can be no excuses for a lethargic performance. We need to win. Ole needs to win. Newcastle are a poor team. Shaw and martial should be back after the intl break they will make a difference but how big a difference?
A defeat against Newcastle and Liverpool would leave ole hanging by a thread imo.

I think our play is all a bit too complicated and elaborate at the moment.

Too many players in central areas all standing still and getting in each other's way. Short sideways passes with no penetration makes us very predictable and easy to defend against. James, Greenwood and Gomes all had spells on the left and right; Greenwood and James swapped positions upfront on occasions and all looked thoroughly confused and unsure of their role.

In James, Rashford and even Martial we have genuine width, pace and a goal scoring threat on the left. Unfortunately none are as comfortable on the right but with some simple direction and instruction there is no reason why these skills shouldn't be transferable to the other side. Dalot looked dangerous when he ran at the full back and crossed the ball. I'm not convinced by him defensively so maybe he deserves a chance playing further forward especially if James or Rashford can't adapt on the right.

I think we need to go back to basics. Get two wide men to stretch the pitch. Get the ball out wide and let them run at the full back and make things happen with players running into the box.

No doubt we'll have Pereria back on the right and Mata at No10 at the weekend where we'll encounter exactly the same problems. Congestion in the central areas, lack of width and penetration with nobody running forward and a serious lack of chances created.

In my opinion Ole must change to a 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 and get some width, penetration and pace in the team to give us a chance to score some goals.

DLIB, we’ve been playing the same since Van Gaal. Slow labouring build up play. Side ways passing with zero penetration. We do have genuine pace with Martial, Rashford and James but the quality is not there.
I desperately wanted it to work out for Ole but as you’ve said Ken, bad results against Newcastle and Liverpool and he could be in serious trouble.
The future looks very bleak.

We don't have a midfield general or even a proper midfielder to control the tempo of the game.

DLIB, OGS doesn't possess the ability to get these players playing a certain way nor does he have the tactical ability to have them playing in a certain formation. It's just not possible.

Yes the problems are bigger than him but surely having a manager that can get them playing cohesively is a step in the right direction. Then the other issue is that we do not have the talent at our disposal and haven't had for years. We need better investment. The 3 in the summer were good buys, now we need to make another 3.

Liverpool fan here .
A simple suggestion
Keep James martial and rashford in wide forward positions .
Mata in Kaka role or recent firmino type deep lying forward . Pogba spraying passes like Pirlo and Fred and mctominy as tacklers and simple passers .

04 Oct 2019 17:47:26
In kaka role? What is that? Are you talking about the no.10 role? Lol

Pogba like pirlo?

A very difficult and non realistic suggestion. simple 😂.

Mata can't play no 10? Is that what you are saying?

Have u seen Pogba in world cup?
