I don't see the players taking the pitch with a clear understanding of what they're supposed to be doing. Defensively, the back 4 look almost (but not quite) as bad as the players Moyes had last campaign. Red Devil fans can't possibly see that. It looks a hot mess.
You can't possibly defend what you're seeing & think it's fundamentally better than what one saw under Moyes. Marginally better but not so if you look at the funds spent in the transfer market.
It's like you went to Ruth Chris only to be served Fridays...
BTW, in case anyone wants to take swipes about my beloved Barca... I'm just as critical about the side I follow...
I agree with this.
Also United on offense this season have looked pathetic. Considering how much firepower they have & bought, I was expecting more goals or at least a better flowing attack. The defensive issues, not surprising but I just expected more from LvG.
But hey, currently in 4th place.
RVP: On and off injury
Falcao: 217 minutes of actual playing time due to injury
Rooney: 4 goals in 9 appearances as the 10
Mata: 3 goals in 9 appearances playing way out of position
Di Maria: 3 goals in 9 appearances
50% of the firepower you're speaking of has been injured
LVG is dealing with an injury every 3 days, possibly having only 1 match this entire season with his desired starting 11, a weak defence and a depressing midfield, he's currently sitting in 4th yet somehow you expected more.
United players have been gaining an understanding of their roles more and more every week. Things are certainly improving at United, and would be much better if the injury crisis could finally come to an end, especially coming into the business end of the season...
