This isn't the manager's fault.


He’s dogmatically trying to introduce a style of play that he doesn’t have the players for, against an extremely well-drilled and expertly recruited team. No, it’s not his fault that the defenders have been individually poor and De Gea is a relic who can’t pass, but he certainly hasn’t helped himself.

Every manager imposes a style of play, or at least they should do!  He's not a miracle worker, and was never going to transform a patchy squad into a decent team instantly.  De Gea's passing hasn't been the problem, that's an odd take.

De Gea’s limited passing makes it incredibly easy for Brighton to press. It is literally always a problem.

Liverpool and United are going all out for the Europa League places this season. I think Watford and Brentford will finish above both of them. Every team that plays against Klopp's bully boys will just dry their pitch out with hair dryers.

Pleased with a first win away at Old Trafford today. Thought we'd miss Bissouma and Cucurella but I should put my faith in Potterball. Doesn't always work (we'll undoubtedly lose 1-0 at home to one of the bottom 3 in January) but when it works, it is effective.

 

I wasn't sure why United had signed Eriksen when they have Fernandes but he was by far the most composed player out there for Man U.
