We need to keep the ball for 5 mins first just to shut this crowd up and lower the tempo
It's a very bad result and I think some fans think this group is easier than it is. I'm not suggesting United go out, they could go and dominate the group from here on but that's a tough group it really is.
Exactly. We’ll comfortably qualify no doubts.
I usually come out in defence of Ole, but this was lost in the dressing room at half time. We played chicken shit scared as soon as AWB got sent off, and instead of galvanizing them and attempting even the slightest attack, Ole bottled it and tried to defend for an hour.I know that was poor from both AWB and Lingard, but Ole has cost us that one.
That’s a horrible stat mate, we were awful tonight, yes with 10 men but it felt like backs to the wall for nearly the entire second half, sorry I’m just not accepting anything other than we got this hugely wrong in the second half.
Both by Ronaldo. Inexcusable.
Chelsea gave Liverpool a game when down to 10 men for 50mins. We should be able to do the same against the supposedly weakest team in the group.
Agreed about the Ronaldo switch. He offered nothing up front on his own because he was too isolated and lacked the pace to get in behind, as shown by his pen claim.I might argue Ronaldo should have gone for Greenwood for mobility. But that's a brave man to make that sub.
Fundamentally, we don't have a CM to play with 10. That's the problem. You really need some quality in there, it highlighted where we all know we are weak
