Man Utd (H) - Premier League -17/1/21 - 16:30

Recommended Posts

I think the team has peaked, as all teams do at some point, worsened by having to play our best midfielders in defence. 

 

They were a fraction away from doing the league and European Cup double two seasons on the spin. Still won one of each. Hopefully the next set of players are as successful as these. 

 

I know that sounds ridiculous to read after last season (I thought so when I read it) but it's genuinely how I see it.

VVD and Gomez/Matip back and Fab and Thiago in midfield, Jota in the forward line, could be a renewed energy. Just some shit circumstances.

Other than binning Firmino for Bobby Buchet I don't know how to fix this either. 

 

Start playing with an advanced playmaker and a real striker?

 

Play with 2 up front??

 

More shots from distance?

 

More attempting to get to the by-line and cut it back (a pretty dangerous attack that we never seem to do)?

 

More and faster one touch play in the final third?

 

Some combination of the above?

 

I don't know. I wish I knew more about football. Klopp does though and he needs to sort our final third play out as it has dipped way, way below the required levels.

It runs deeper than that I'm afraid.

We just need our centre backs back

 

Release our fullbacks further up the pitch

 

Chuck in Diogo for good measure

 

Jobs a goon 'un

We have been shite but we are being massively hamstrung by not having any centre backs which is forcing two of our best midfielders into defence. Jota also being out is making things worse. Put a fit VVD and Gomez into this team, push Hendo and Fabinho into midfield and we look a totally different side. We have fucked up by having no options at the back.

No idea where we go from here. 

 

We don't have a goal or even much threat in us....just everything in front of opposition - slow, easy to defend against and pretty easy to counter. 

 

They actually managed more efforts on target than we did with only a third of the ball - that fact alone is fucking terrible.

 

Players out of position, out of form, out of confidence and if we don't arrest this soon - out of the title race.
