Yesterday's game is likely to be the blueprint for the rest of our season.

We were very good, excellent at times, in the first 30-35 minutes. Villa altered things and started to get a bit of a foothold in the last 10-15 minutes of the first half.

In the second half it was clear as day that the players were out on their feet, exhausted and struggling. The simple errors and misplaced passes are a symptom of fatigue.

We have a squad of players nowhere near fit enough to play for 90 minutes at the pace and intensity required to play a pressing game. While we also lack the technical quality and intelligence to play a slower more possession based approach.

Matic is the only midfielder we have who can get his foot on the ball and reliably move it around without gift away possession. Sadly he doesn't have the legs to play for 90 minutes at the required intensity.

Personally I think the best approach is to start with McFred and go for the throat in the first half, then in the second half while leading bring on Matic and Donny for one of Fred or McTominay and Bruno and switch to a more controlled approach once the rest of the team have tired maybe looking to hit teams on the counter in the final 30 minutes.

It might not be pretty, and it might not get the players fitness up as quickly but it should get us more points than allowing our players to be out on their feet and chasing shadows for the final 30 minutes.

Currently we are playing in a very similar way to Liverpool during Klopp's first season. Good in the first half often leading at halftime, but struggling to see out games and conceding late to be pegged back or even lose.

I remember a friend who is a Liverpool fan saying at the time if his side weren't winning by 3 goals at halftime then they probably won't get three points from the game.

I thought the first half was much better, probably better than the first half against Palace.

There is a slight concern that we play our best football without Ronaldo. Bar the Palace game where he actually pressed and worked hard we have struggled with him in the side.

Same with Rashford, he needs to focus more and work harder off the ball for his teammates. He has it in him, I just wonder if his closeness with Pogba and Jesse is impacting his attitude which was absolutely top class when he first broke into the team and his first few years. He might be a victim of not having players with the right attitude to look up to and to guide him. He has the talent, and he has shown the right attitude previously. Hopefully he can get back on track.

I was in my late teens in the mid eighties, and always thought i'd like to go back to those days. Now United have gone back to them days of mid table mediocrity, i want to go to the 90's instead.

{Ed014's Note - ??

More than I expected pre match, but less than I'd hoped for with 15minutes to go. It is what it is I guess ?‍♂️.

{Ed014's Note - let’s be honest, you were gifted 2 goals and looked as inept as ever Tim.

Won’t hear me arguing Ed, just when you are 2-0 up with 15 to go you’d expect to win regardless.

{Ed014's Note - you absolutely would Tim and you’ve got away with it a fair few times, just not today.

Have a good weekend Ed…no north London derby to watch which is a shame?.

{Ed014's Note - and you Tim and really disappointed it isn’t going ahead as actually enjoying watching us now.

Thought we were good first half, definitely the first 30 minutes, it’s a low bar but it’s the best half of football since the palace game and probably our 2nd best half of football all season. Still sloppy at times but a lot more effort and a team playing as a team. Very disappointed with the 2nd half, we don’t seem to be able to keep up any good performance for 90 mins.

Under Ole we didn't start, under Rangnick we never finish. What is the problem? 2nd half we didn't even play. It was like Monday.

Much better first half. Elanga looking 1000 times more dangerous than Rashford has all season.

2 keepers on the bench, are there C.V. issues.

Agree0 Disagree0

No Ronnie, rashford or slabhead. Two out because of injury but maguire on the bench so maybe he's just dropped, hopefully as he's been mustard. Big chance for elanga today, hope he has a good game?.

Really worried now with the players attitudes some just seem lost. If was in there now, ld go back to basics, 4-4-2. Forget all the pressing and just get the players working hard up and down the pitch. Two central, two wingers and work hard for the team, if the big names don't want to, play the younger players. Our attack tonight was non existent and we could have conceded 3 or 4. Worried for Saturdays rematch.

The players are basically refusing to try for RR like they did wiyh Ole.

Maybe the club should ask the players who they want as manager, that way we know they’ll put the effort in (joking) ?.
