We actually played well yesterday unfortunately s couple of individual mistakes cost us .

jred if we played well we would have won comfortably.
Very good performances from some players, offset by very poor performances from others, does not constitute a good performance overall.

Those that had poor performances were no real surprise. De gea and maguire are, depressingly, our two most senior players and very often cause their own problems. Maguire is a throwback centre half from the 80s, not dynamic at all and afraid to lead a high defensive line.
De gea has no command of his own box, is slow to come off his line and often cowardly in his approach.
This is the worlds costliest defender and highest paid goalkeeper by the way.

Ole’s passive approach and lack of in game management, coupled with a lack of experience and calibre in his support team, mean I struggle to see us ever winning silver under this regime.
However, he will likely continue to do just enough to justify him not being replaced, with the occasional good run of results and probably champions league qualification.

We did play well, strange one as I thought the first half was as good as we have ever looked.

But that's what happens sometimes, look how many times we have played terribly and got a result. Swings and roundabouts.

You think every team that plays well wins? What if both teams play well? Draw?

I think we played well too.

Ole was right in his post match interview: you can’t concede with every shot on your goal. I’m pleased to hear him say that after his blind faith in De Gea to-date.

Rashford had a great chance to score 1 on 1 with a gaping hole between the keepers legs but it was a poor finish. We had chances to score a couple more.

Even the most stubborn of the Ole out brigade must be able to see why we have to play 2 DM’s. Sure it’s frustrating but what else can we do? Bailly is always injured. Lindelof is very average and Maguire, aside from playing everyone on for their equaliser, has the pace of an OAP.

Well Wazza, how about proper coaching for a change?

The defensive players lack organization and communication and get caught out of position every game, forward players like Rashford/ Martial trying to do it all and missing chances when presented.

DeGea still struggles to command the box and is hesitant to come out of his line (even though he has been at the club for almost a decade) .

How come Ole and our coaching staff don't see that and work on it in the training ground?

LPU, Caolan explains very well down the page how the goals we conceded are not down to coaching but individual failings.

Maguires lack of pace and decision to drop in cost us.
Just as De Gea’s limp wrists and bravery of a baby rabbit also cost us.

Blame Ole if you like, but that won’t change anything. Sometimes we just have to admit a few of our players aren’t good enough but the two I mention are a recent £80m signing and the highest paid goalkeeper in the world so I don’t see anything changing in that respect either.
