Got tickets for this one, can’t wait to see Ole roaming the dugout
Sorry Burnley but you are in for a pounding.
Thought Greenwood might feature on the bench for this one as Ole has said he’s knocking on the door to make his debut but today he mentioned Mata, Lukaku and Sanchez needing games. Expect we’ll make a couple of changes with Dalot, Fred and one of Mata/Sanchez/Lukaku maybe starting.
Yep, there's no disguising the problems we've got when you scratch the surface - and with our fixture list and squad depth / lack of quality, you'll be lucky to make top 4 and get a decent cup run. We don't have the depth of quality to play Oleball properly. You are going to have to supplement the fringe 11 with the youth as it is.
I was going to say you guys can blame me but since I inspired that comeback...
Not as lively as usual but we weren’t too bad, dominated the game and positive in our play. Lacked the final ball/finish in the first half and if you don’t take your chances then in this league you will be punished. Two poor goals to concede though, Pereira and Jones were a calamity for the first and awful all round for the second, wish that they would stop putting their hands behind their back.
Responded well to being two down, never gave in and clawed ourselves back even with Heaton having another stellar match and Burnley defending well.
We played well or at least in the right way, attitude was also good. It was just down to some moments like Pereira's mistake and Rashford's big chance. If he scores that we hammer them 4-0.
I agree with Ole we should have played it more short and quick. Too many useless crosses in the box. No matter how desperate you try, don't lose your head. We played to their strength with those crosses.
