I hated pretty much every second of that match. We were brutal and I've got to pin that on Mourinho. We were slamming into a red wall time and time again, no finesse, no clever movement, no drawing them out or pulling them around. Just one dimensional nonsense over and over again. Absolutely painful to watch. New and improved Jose my arse. Same old negative crap as before. I don't know how much more I can take of this kind of football. If anyone thinks that this is a foundation upon which success will be built then they're off their rocker. You cannot play this way any more. Its so predictable. Thinking we could have another couple of years of this is giving me brain ache.

I don't think either Winks or Sissoko are good enough really. Not enough brains or composure in either of them.
This is obvious. A cursory glance at any of our previous matches where they've played together should've been a big red flag for José but he chose to do it in his biggest match so far. I've seen promise from both of them individually (although I don't think either is good enough) but together they NEVER work.

I’m going to pick out Winks because he won’t get nearly as much shit thrown his way as he deserves.

His performance was as equally pathetic as it was idiotic. TIME AND TIME again he’s being suckered into chasing the ball into the opposition corner flag and leaving us totally exposed in the middle. We virtually had no midfield because he was leaving his station at every opportunity.

I never wish an injury on a player but I sincerely hope this means Ndombele gets the run of games in this team that he deserves. Winks shouldn’t be anywhere near this side.

We were bad but did you think it was a penalty?

Can you also answer why there was only 4 mins of time added on?
The pen was a very close call. It looked like one live and there was a little contact so VAR didn’t overrule. We were given the benefit of the doubt on the Alli goal.

I don’t see why we didn’t get a little more time at the end but I doubt it would’ve changed the outcome.

Lost a little faith in José tonight.

Winks and Sissoko have proved time and time again that they are an awful midfield two. Poch fell for it and now Jose has, really poor selections tonight.
The faith will be lost if he makes that mistake again.

Hopefully he'll give Sessegnon a game as a wing forward now. He can't be more invisible than Moura is. And he's much more likely to provide service to Kane than anyone else in the side.

Our issue is too many question marks over a lot of our regular players.

Winks?

Dier?

Sissoko?

Eriksen?

Moura?

I want to see GLC, N'dombele starting Saturday.

Full of individual errors. Passes putting teammates under pressure, no desire no anything from top to bottom.

Sanchez on the ball is shocking, it’s clear you close down Toby and let Sanchez have the ball and we can’t build from the back.

Kane was really bad. I know he got pretty terrible service but that means he has to make every touch he does get count. He lost the ball every time and didn’t even try and make it difficult for United’s defence. He is meant to be our talisman but he turns these performances in fairly often these days. Is so frustrating because in certain games he looks back to his best.
You just know he's gonna be utterly fucked next season after the Euros too.
