Because the manager is a clueless idiot who doesn't have a clue what he's doing! Martial is a striker who wants to play up front yet he doesn't. Then he plays Young and Lingard there instead? What a joke!!! And he left Mata on the right when he's played well on the middle... Where he's best off because of the way he plays. It's just a joke.
Yeah it was... At half time it was obvious! To not move Mata at all was a disgrace! He should have spotted the obvious and then acted but he didn't. And to play Young up front? I mean come on... I thought he was brought on to provide balance and allow Martial to play through the middle. But no no he was played up front.
In his time at United there has been some truly appalling decisions that he's made. But I think that today topped the lot. Our best attacking player was Martial but he didn't get a chance through the middle despite being a striker. Young and Lingard looked lost through the middle and Mata was ineffective and exposed on the right.
At one point with the way that Fosu-Mensah was playing I thought maybe he'd gone for a 3 at the back?! But then Rojo and Mata would be two of the last players I'd look to play at full back. So if that was what he was doing then that's even worse than what we are already thinking.
