Very poor result and performance last night. Crazy how slow the play was from us with absolutely no penetration what so ever. I've backed Ole but the line up really cheesed me off. Williams has an excellent game against Burnley and offers us an attacking sense going forward plus he's quick to get back defensively. Luke shaw's allover the place he cannot defend and doesn't attack full backs just what does he give us? Sod all that's what he gives us. Also Pereira was lively when he came on last night and played well away to Burnley then somehow lingard gets a start last night? What has he done to get in the team.

There is no doubt we need players but Ole made two glaring mistakes last night. Lingard wouldn't even get in Aston Villa's team he would probably struggle to get in any team in the league if I'm being honest. I wouldn't pick Shaw again either as Ashley Young offers us much more. A lot of confidence in Ole died last night we haven't won over 2 games in a row this season is quite frankly ridiculous. If you had told me in 2013 when we won the title that in 7 years time we would be 24 points behind the league leaders who would also have two games in hand I would have laughed my head off. We need players but things need to improve and fast or things could get ugly and it would be such a shame for Solskjaer for it all to end in such a way.

we need to stop playing with 2 cdms this 4 2 3 1 formation does not suit the team.

02 Jan 2020 12:43:50
I agree with you there bolger I must say. Same system all season though isn't it.

02 Jan 2020 12:58:57
So please tell me what else we played with in midfield yesterday. I don't really understand how you fit martial rashford and james/ greenwood into a team, you can't play rash and James/ greenwood as wingers in a 442, who else do we start other than matic and Fred yesterday, maybe pereira in for Jesse but if Pereirra had an off day people would be out for him as usual too. our squad is not good enough.

02 Jan 2020 13:10:53
But ya know what, then these same players go out and beat city and spurs in 3 days and the only team to take points of liverpool so who knows maybe I'm really wrong and they should just sack Ole and try again but I really don't want that to happen, not because of my love for Ole, but because I genuinely feel it is the best thing to do for the club.

02 Jan 2020 13:11:03
It's not that 4 2 3 1 doesn't suit the team.

More to the point, we have too many players that don't suit football.

02 Jan 2020 13:14:58
Keep the same team as Burnley. Why was there any need to change it? If he had an off day? U are talking nonsense now. Pereira and Williams both had very good games and then they are dropped. 1 change can make all the difference let alone two. I already said our squad is short but pick the form players and not players who offer us absolutely nothing.

The only way I can reckon Williams didn't start last night is because the lad is 18 years old, fb is possibly the most difficult position on the pitch and maybe its taking its toll on him training and players senior matches, I was no professional but played rugby and when I was 18 playing for the seniors it would take me way longer to recover than the senior players.
I fully agree with your sentiment however that Williams is the future and Luke Shaw is the past.

02 Jan 2020 13:50:15
I agree Damon, I would have started Pereirra over Lingard cause he's in better form however I'm just saying Andrea's has underperformed in games a lot this season so it may not have made too much of a difference and if he did indeed underperform you can bet there would be posts today saying he should not be in the team. In my opinion neither are good enough.

I don't like slagging our own players off but with Luke Shaw if we are all being honest then other than a month or two in 2015 before his injury he's been a shocking signing. Ashley Young even though he isn't everyone's cup of tea gives everything each time he puts on the red shirt. You cannot say the same for shaw. Maybe the injury took all the action out of him but he doesn't take players on or anything now. Runs forward stops then passes it back he does the same thing every single time.

02 Jan 2020 15:05:02
we don't have any natural wingers, we keep playing our strikers out wide, ole bangs on about how good of a finisher greenwood is but plays him out wide

we are best suited with the team we have to play our full backs as wingers in a 3 5 2 or 3 4 1 2.

until we have actual wingers who can cross a ball it is useless playing with the set up the way we do.

and because we don't have the quality in the middle to control games we get out ran.

thats just my opinion, this 4 3 3 and 4 2 3 1 crap just doesn't work.

daniel james is a winger.

Shaw was excellent against city. Big game. First game back and he played very well. Lingard did well in terms of making space for others and leading the press.

Lots of games in a short space of time, he probably felt he needed to freshen it up. He thought these two guys would give him a similar performance at Arsenal away. It didn't work!
