Give me 100m+ for Martial and I'd take him to the airport myself. Gutlees cnut. Give me 120m+ for Pogba and I'd definitely think about it. Our 2 most talented players but showing up every 3 or 4 games ain't going to make us champions. It's quite worrying actually. Out of our entire squad there's only about 2 or 3 players playing at a consistent level. Davey G, Shaw (even though he could of done a lot better with their second goal) and I'm sure there's another one somewhere Ole has done a fantastic job getting the players to believe in themselves again but belief can only go so far. The big question is does he have what it takes to rebuild which is what's needed? Maybe if we can can 2 or 3 exceptional players in the current squad will raise their game but if not its going to be a long road ahead.
That was so disappointing, get to the quarters beating Arsenal and Chelsea then produce that damp squib of a performance.
We had a lot of the ball but the play was so slow and sloppy, Pogba, Martial, Rashford all overplaying, dallying on the ball and trying to be cute. I think Ole perhaps made too many changes rushing players back, Lukaku was a big miss and all our cards were on show with nothing on the bench not that we’d have turned it around as we just weren’t at it at all.
I don’t think Pogba should have the captaincy, he has too many games where he is rather half arsed and he doesn’t need that added responsibility.
Wolves are a good side, thoroughly worthy of the win and will likely have a say in the top four race too.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, speaking to BBC Sport: "We started too slowly and played into their hands. Our possession wasn't bright enough and quick enough, so it's disappointing.
"I didn't think we had enough quality in the last third, enough combination play. We had decent dominance with the ball in the first half but that doesn't help if you give the ball away and they can counter.
"This was a big step backwards, mainly because of the quality of the possession and the passing."
I’m glad that Ole watched the same match as us, shame he couldn’t turn it around but regroup and react.
The big question is does he have what it takes to rebuild which is what's needed?
Bugger all to do with Ole that, Glazerwood are the only people who will dictate how far they are prepared to go to do what's needed. Million dollar question which should unfold shortly. Don't hold your breath..
Glad that Ole didn't defend this, he called it for what it was, dreadful. I do think we need to cash in on Martial now and see if we can actually get a player who better fits what we're doing on the wings (in fact, i'd cash in on Sanchez as well and bring in two new wingers who fit the system that Ole seems to want to play, actual wingers, not one winger and a #10 playing as a winger). Also defensively, the glazers and woodward are idiots for not putting some cash aside to bring in a CB in january (a world class one like a Koulibaly), we spent next to nothing and brought in no one of any immediate worth in the summer.
