The truth about United and Ole that people are afraid to admit
Manchester United are showing all the hallmarks of a side who cannot cope at the top level and might not be back there soon unless some significant changes are made.
Woodward’s season-long plan to “get rid of the deadwood, play loads of youngsters, and generate some optimism for the future” has lasted until the first week of October.
Well done, Ed. He’s just loaned out Chris Smalling after giving him a contract extension six months ago. Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are still there after years and years of simply occupying space. The ways Woodward finds to look even more incompetent than he did two weeks ago continue to be absolutely astounding.
There is no way his summer plan was to spend £130m on defenders and needlessly weaken the team in every other area of the pitch, but somehow that happened.
He gave the job to fecking Moyes in the first place and then eventually gave it to Solskjaer, whose only managerial experience in this country prior to this year was getting relegated with Cardiff City for godness sake.
And, fine, sure, the odds are against Ole for the reasons stated above, but Chelsea are basically in the same position as us (relying on kids for squad depth, their main star leaving or agitating for a move, inexperienced manager), yet the very, very beginnings of a new cycle at least look like they are under way for Lampard.
Other than aiming for Harry Maguire at the back post on free-kicks and corners, is there any one tactic or plan that United consistently aim to do? I can’t think of one.
Sure, sometimes philosophies don’t work. Pep during the 16/17 season and all of Van Gaal’s reign (his philosophy needs time, remember), but you could see they were trying something at least.
With the current system, it has gone so far beyond the point of “not knowing which United side is going to turn up” because you know what United side is going to turn up.
It is going to be the United side that prays for a moment of brilliance because we simply cannot control anything else about a game of football.
I think that was it tonight. 5 wins in the last 22 games. That’s not a bad run of form, that’s routine now.https://www.fanchesterunited.com/the-truth-about-united-and-ole-that-people-are-afraid-to-admit/
when you invest in Defender with 130 Millions you should keep clean sheet more and it should not lose to WESTHAM
Spot on with this feature. However whilst Oki carries the can equal responsibility falls upon Phelan and Carrick. Whelan had his time years ago and the game has moved on beyond him. Carrick is totally inexperienced and out of his depth. Consequently we have a coaching structure not fit for purpose and a squad running around like headless chickens. Classic example of lunatics running the asylum
Couldn’t agree more about Carrick and Phelan, we need to get it out of our heads that old “heroes” aren’t the best way forward
The truth is that after years of shit after SAF retired OGS must be given time since he broke up with the transfer policies of his predecessors of bringing costly big names with barely no results.
Stop United is rebuilding our future is bright enough for wins we not going anywhere watch we going to finish top 4 and win Europe cup
Appointing Ole as Man U manager was the worst thing and waisting resources. It was a grave mistake. He failed at Cardiff, and everyone ones that fact. Instead of sharpening players into first world class, Ole is finishing players. Even today if you were to bring Messi to join Man U,He will be finished. Ole has no proper game plan. It’s time let him go before things go to much worse. We love Man U. We are Man U for life. We need a coach to help and develop players like Liverpool and Man city managers. We are even feeling shame to watch our time playing these days. So come Sunday we have already lost
Midfield is as good as men from graveyard – dead. Other teams transition so easily from forward to our defence as if it’s a kindergarten sprinting exercise.
Forget conceding woes for a moment because that’s the best we’ve been handling.
A look at our attacking line’s record (5 goals in 7 games) and it’s no better than a mid-table at best. Players can’t even string 5 passes together at once.. forget creating useful chances. By mistake even if a decent ball comes in box, either players don’t make proper run or position themselves for it or they squander the chance.
If this isn’t enough then our set pieces are another problem. Rashford can’t hit the ball in empty net from Free-kicks and Ole couldn’t care less about it. There’s a clear regression in our attacking abilities added to unplanned game (all I see is ball going to wingers at times, nothing else).
Our players can’t pass well, finish well, position themselves well, can’t make off the ball runs, can’t create chances or play through balls.. nothing.
The truth is that Adhley Young and Libdeloff are two if the wirst defebders. Analyse Pogba’s game and note how many times he loses the ball, gets knocked off the ball or passes the ball backwards. He makes one or two passes and we think he is great. MU are worse off since he arrived. Rashford may have soeed but no football brain
Get rid off the dead wood at old Trafford starting with the manager who does not know what he is doing we have Newcastle tomorrow and after the international break we have Liverpool. he is destroying the club so the board need to act fast and sack him
