    Because with the imminent loss of Sigurdson, Llorente is their best player and is there only source of goals. I watched their game today, they didnt look like scoring today. And Bony is like a minge

    None of them can be a realistic option from open play. As far as stooping to united's level is concerned well sometimes you have to win ugly, i would rather go for a ugli win than looking pretty for 90mins . We did seem a bit short of ideas before the first goal and posters in the match thread were comparing today's performance with last season. With parked buses infront of us and 2 strikers that dont offer aerial threat its not a bad plan B by any means. Afters today's match teams at the lower end especially will use brighton's tactics as a template. We do need a 3rd striker that offers a aerial threat whether its lorente or someone else

    We won 2-0. We didn't have any need for a plan b. We ground them down and our quality shown through without having to resort to long balls in the box hoping for the best. utd winning ugly has seen them finish below us for the last 3 years and I suspect the next 3 at least.
    I'd rather us stick to our principles and have faith in the way we play. We are a lot better set up to succeed this time around than we were last season.

    Naive and complacent. Sorry has to be said.

    I believe our manager feels the same way and like me couldn't give a fuck if you're sorry to say it or not.

    Don't be. There's plenty of teams you can go and watch who have no real plan and resort to hit and hope if that's your thing.
