We're 2nd last ahead of, like I said, Wolves v Fulham.
That Martial Red card was ridiculous.
It is a red as he made contact with the face. However Lamela should have gone as well.
Nah, should have just had a word. Games gone when you send people off for that. Its not even a punch
Players have known for years that if you raise your hands to a player's face it's a sending off. Got no sympathy for Martial. Lamela is a cock however for making such a meal of it.
Yeah, fair enough. You're right though, if martial goes then Lamela has to go too. No idea what the ref/VAR were thinking. Lamela's elbow was more dangerous than Martial's poke, let alone the dive
What about Shaw? If Martial’s was a red, how on Earth was that only a yellow?
Agreed, Shaw had to go.
Annoyingly Pierre had a really good game for Spurs today.
He did, but to be fair, United’s midfield was non-existent.
Well done Pierre.
Because I don't think he got anywhere near that standard in his last season with us.
He did in other seasons and I believe he had been high in winning back possession last season too.
He became a scapegoat at our place.
he is now in a team with some better quality around him and he can focus on his job. Winning the ball back and giving it to someone to play
True, we never really played him as a pure lone CDM. He looked good, that disciplined role really suits him as he isn't very creative, so can just run around and keep it simple.
We really had a lack of clear role definition at times in midfield. Hojbjerg can be a good ball-winner, and I think he demonstrated in his first season with the club that he can be more of an aggressive, box-to-box type as well. He just can't do both at the same time, and in a two-man midfield with JWP you really need the other person to be more Wanyama than Schneiderlin.
After yesterday's scorelines, Vestergaard's value must have quadrupled!
To four quid?
