Good post Danny sums up yesterday very well. I too am not so certain that when we strengthen in the summer we will play more attractive football. I think our defence is weak and Jose is compensating by protecting it. But our attacking players has been woeful all season. There is no style of play or identity and we are constantly relying on bits of magic to win us games. The players look like strangers when they attack. There are some very talented footballers in our team but if they are not being coached properly then it doesn’t matter how much talent you have got.

Jose needs to find a system and style and stick with it. Constantly changing is creating unrest and we are in the position where we still don’t have an understanding between the players on the pitch. Sidelining martial and rashford for Sanchez has proven to be a bad decision. However, martial was a joke when he was introduced yesterday. For a player with a point to prove he was languid and passive. If he doesn’t want to be here then he can be shown the door because I sick of these mentally weak snowflakes who pick and choose when they decide to turn it on.

I’m prepared to give Jose another year but I think we need to be looking for a suitable replacement. We need to find a way of getting the best out of the squad with a system. Finally we need to invest sensibly. It’s so bad but I come to expect these lacklustre performances from us these days. It’s become the norm and that’s the sad thing.

Thanks Park, I blame the players more than the manager for y'days debacle but accept that he must also take some of the responsibility. It's his job to keep them hungry and motivated and most of them looked anything but!

These type of performances need to eradicated if we're to have any chance of challenging for the title next season. There's no doubt we've improved immeasurably in terms of points gained, goals scored and goals conceded but even I must admit that it's felt like a hard slog for the most part. Just as I think we're slowly getting it together they throw in another curve ball like y'day. It's just all so Infuriating!

That’s issue Danny that when we have a great result we follow it up with a shocking performance. Liverpool and then Sevilla spring to mind. We are terrible inconsistent and as Gary Neville said last night that is difficult to coach out of certain players. Right when we seem to be turning a corner we loss in such a terrible way that it feels like doom and gloom. Like many have mentioned we really lack leaders and I can’t see any players in there that are like Rio, vidic, evra or Neville. We lost a whole host of leaders in one go and have never replaced them. Valencia being captain says it all. I’ve never heard him speak or do an interview and am pretty sure he can’t speak English! So in a way I can see jose’s Frustration. But he himself is not inspiring the team. It’s a very strange feeling being a united fan at the moment.
