    Another game that we can't afford to lose, especially since Leicester beat Villa and Arsenal are already losing to City. Strong team, but be warned, Lindelof is playing - (our two star youngsters are on the bench again though, so not all bad news)

    What is the obsession with playing Lindelof? I don’t get it!

    We're making Newcastle look good here.

    Take that in.

    They players look absolutely ****ing clueless as to what they're supposed to be doing.

    To be fair, if we're honest, Bailly had a mare the other night.

    Fred and Matic are supposed to be our bedrock in midfield.

    All both have done all match is pass to the nearest Newcastle player.

    Absolutely ****ing garbage, both of them.

    Our bench is very thin on midfield replacements. No McT especially.

    You could take Matic off an put Mata on and it immediately stops the ball being fed straight to the opposition.

    Or Fred, take your pick.

    Martial, Matic and Lindelof off.

    Greenwood, Mata and Tuanzebe (or Bailly) on.

    Now please.

    Just read on Sky that of the last seven shots on goal from inside our box de Gea has only saved two. It used to be that our defence was crap and de Gea was their saviour, but now he seems to be part of the problem - the defence is probably no worse than it used to be but de Gea is the weak link. If I was Ole I would give each keeper a half in each game we played until one emerged the better of the two. Talk of letting one of them leave in the summer is frightening, who the hell would be our number 2.

    If you've got Victor Lindelof playing in front of you, you're going to be a dodgy keeper.

    He needs binning, sharpish. He's never been good enough.

    I don't have complete trust in Henderson just yet, but it may be the case he has to take over full time next season.

    I know I've said these things before but...

    Fred is simply not good enough for United.

    Our goals aren't coming much from any tactical approach. It's individual brilliance we and Ole are counting on. As seen with Rashford.

    But hey I must be just being negative. We're actually really brilliant :wink:

    Solskjaer saw Guardiola play a 'false' 9 earlier so decided to go with his own version, the invisible 9.

    We're playing with ten men here and two of those ten seem intent on playing for the opposition.

    This is ludicrously bad.

    It doesn't just stop there. How can a manager with a heavily defensive coaching team watch us week in week out for 6 months and still not address one single defensive problem? I'm honestly stunned at the incompetence.

    Give him a go at 9, he can't be any worse that Martial!

    Find it funny thinking back to when Zlatan took Martial's No.9 shirt and he cried about it.

    He's got it back now and seemingly doesn't like playing there ffs!
