Misery in Mancland


TLW Editor Dave Usher joins 'Numbers' to break down another bitterly disappointing performance from the Reds, as they crashed to a 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford.  

 

The defence let in three for the second game in a row, the midfield didn't function once more and aside from one brilliant Benteke strike the attack was toothless again. Another bad day at the office.

Hey dave I was thinking when listening to the podcast when you were talking about the players not knowing what they're supposed to do. I don't think this was better emphasised than when Can and Skyrtel were fucking about passing the ball to each other deep in our own half and then lost the ball because they didn't want to play a forward pass.

Numbers' positivity seems to have disappeared entirely.

I thought they were remarkably restrained there. Dave asked me to do this last night but I couldn't due to other plans. However, I'd've been way more critical of Rodgers than Dave and Numbers were. He needs to go. No one comes back from a mess as bad as this one.

Resigned would be the word that best described how they both sounded to me. Depressing times, there just doesn't seem to be any clear path ahead.

I don't agree with Dave's initial point about the 1st half being ok from our point of view.  United have shown they can be got at even at home.  Other clubs have gone to OT, taken the game to United and have caused them lots of problems.  There should be no fear factor going to OT.  If anything I would have expected us to play more like we did yesterday away to Arsenal & vice versa.

 

ts just a big load of shit we are being served up by Rodgers.  I want him gone asap.

Listening to that podcast, they could have been talking about pretty much every season for the last 25 years. The problems seem to be recurrent regardless of who is in the manager's seat, regardless of who is on the pitch, regardless of who is running the club day-to-day, and regardless of who's name is above the door. For years, we've tried to be too clever for our own good, and very seldom have we been successful off the back of it.

Yep. History shows there are no short cuts to success. Whoever has the best players wins the league and that only comes through purchases. Even Barca didn't build only from within.

That's because we always appoint the wrong people.

Evans was untested, dalglish had been out of the game, Rodgers was untested, Hodgson was mediocre, Houllier was a gamble that paid off, the only one with real pedigree was Rafa and he delivered instantly.

There's no guarantees in football but you've got to help yourself by appointing people who are qualified for the job. It's hard to think of another multi billion pound industry where they'd let so many rank amateurs near the top job.

Nope,can't agree with the first half being ok either. Had the misfortune of sitting near the corner flag near the Stretford end and I near had neck strain from trying to see down the other end of the pitch with us pinned back for so long.
