It's depressing to read so many so called supporters writing off Ole and the team so early in the season. Can we please be patient. It was unrealistic to expect a wholesale change of players in the transfer window and to see us get back to the level we need to be at to compete with City and Liverpool right away. The rebuilding has started. We are playing brighter attacking football but we are still missing a couple of top midfielders who would make all the difference. Its unfzis to expect ching and gomez to be the answer. Mata and Matic are not the futire and really not the present either. We all know Pogba is not the answer either but at the moment we have to stick with him. I would judge Ole at the end of the season not before. The only reason I would even contemplate sacking him is if we had a terrible run of results playing bad football and it was seriously damaging the younger players confidence. Let's also realise there are not that many great managers available who could do much more with this current squad.

Salford 3 wins in the last 16. That is a poor run of results even in relgation threatened teams. We are playing boring football unless keeping 60% possession without doing anything with it is enough for you after Ole's first 3 games in charge. So that is 2 of your points done to sack Ole now. We keep this run and the young ones will soon be demotivated.

I wonder when neville will go on a 20 min rant about rashford's penalty miss like he did with pogba or make a few off the cuff remarks about how lingard's driving him crazyl like he did with martial.

It is not about missing a pen, it is about the lack of direction from above about who takes pens, about whose ego might have been bruised if a decision had been made. I bet there are very few who played the game who didn’t know who took pens and that indecision came from above Pogba. Maybe Neville didn’t realise but his reaction criticised his mate.

25 Aug 2019 07:10:28
The problem isn't the criticism in itself redman, but the duplicity of it. Neville is coming off as a bit of a xenophobe, pogba or martial play poorly and he will go on rants about them yet the same from rashford or lingard and it is mostly met with silence, look at his media statements in general when moyes was incharge and when mourinho was.

I guess Mou was right again.

Man City B team has better chance to finish in top 4 than us.

The pressure of going unbeaten for the season was too much to bare.
Its good to get that monkey off our backs and we can now go forward without that pressure.

We have had the same problems against packed defences since LVG and there is no reason why they should suddenly disappear. But that said, given the opportunities we had around the box as a result of Palace's commitment to fouling any time a defender was beaten - a tactic that was not adequately punished in my view- we should have cruised to a victory. Unfortunately we do not have a reliable free kick taker (Mata is the best, but he wasn't playing and Rashford is severely overrated) nor, at the moment someone who can even score from the penalty spot. Neither Rashford, Pogba and, especially, Lingard, who seems to have been taking close control lessons from Lukaku, were not anywhere near good enough today.

The frustration comes not so much from lack of effort but from dropping 5 points from 2 games where we were by far the better side.

So I normally leave it a day before posting about a match to let the emotion settle down and to not say anything silly or in the heat of the moment. Yet I strangely feel calm about the game so will post now instead.

First off, we dominated possession. However, we always were against a Hodgson side, especially a Palace side that bar Zaha doesn't look EPL quality. It was clear weeks ago how Palace would set up, and I feel Ole made a mistake in playing both James and Lingard.

Lingard is a useful player, one you want in the tight games where you need someone to do lots of off the ball work to unsettle the opposition and win the ball back high up. Yet against a side that would sit deep and effectively hand you back possession as easily as Palace do it make little sense playing a player of Lingard's skill set.

Likewise James's best attribute is his pace in behind (although his shooting looks pretty good) . So to play him from the start against a team that was going to camp out on their own 18 yard line seems strange.

Palace often had all 11 men behind the ball and showed little ambition, they only had 4 shots all game. We lack the players of invention we need in the final third to break down such deep sitting teams. It's vital for us to bring Gomes into this side, he might be young and he will be inconsistent but he has the movement and imagination required to open up these deep sitting teams. That's twice in 6 days we have been undone by the same tactic (although Palace offered so much less going forward than Wolves, its strange that they are the team that got the win) .

My first real thought is DDG, the winner was a very poor shot to let in, the ball went straight through him. However, the opening goal was also at his near post and for a keeper to be beaten twice at his near post in the same game is a very poor showing. It looks like he has carried his form from last season into this season. I do worry that he might have peaked early as a keeper and he could be on the downward path now.

It might seem strange considering we lost but there was two incidents which I feel need praise for two players often derided. Firstly, Martial's reaction to the penalty, running up grabbing the ball and passing it straight to Rashford. Shows a good team ethic for him to do that. Secondly, Pogba actually getting stuck in and winning the ball back after he lost it. That action lead to our goal. So it shows what can happen if you pu.

Brilliant Shappy, brilliantly boring that essay of yours. You will lose credibility as a poster if you don't take of your rose tinted glasses. Your posts are becoming like our performances. Clueless.

Three shots on target at home against Palace, 3 wins in 16 game run. No Manchester United manager has ever lost 7 of their first 13 games as permanent Manchester United manager. Officially our worst ever manager.

Enjoy the DNA.
