I, like many other United fans, and the three fine gentlemen in the video below, have no idea what’s happening. It seem as though Christmas comes very early that we’re giving out 9 points in the last 3 matches.
The club have new manager with superb reputation, several new players including the most expensive player in the planet. But then, we can’t even beat Watford.
Anyway, as our captain continue to rot, I am glad to see Marcus Rashford keep his top performance going. He’s the only positive, if there is any, from our performance last weekend.
Mkhitaryan just picked up an injury at pointless international friendly match last week and Lingard hasn’t had enough game time since the FA Cup win, yet the manager include them to the starting 11. Now the derby defeat sounds like the pair’s main fault. Well, I don’t believe that. It’s the media wants to sound like it does.
However, of course there are bad performances by the players, even the most expensive player on the planet aren’t immune to such circumstances. But I was wondering, what’s the “punishment” for a manager who pick a wrong starting 11? I am not looking for an answer, but his tactic still puzzles me.
This match review is so kind it will make many United fans agreed that there were a lot of positives comes out from yesterday’s derby defeat.
I don’t disagree, but positives outcome don’t matter if your supposedly best player (Pogba) isn’t turning up and our master tactician manager strangely gamble with his starting 11 (Rashford should starts).
