    I watched Dave closely yesterday, it was painful at times.

    There was at least three occasions when De Gea had the freedom of going quick and passing straight into the centre.

    It resulted in the second goal. Some people might only see the pivotal moments that lead directly to a goal?

    I saw Silva standing essentially as a fucking striker without once being aware that McTominay was in acres and running right off the back of him.

    Martial tucked right into midfield to stop Angelino joining up, allowing James to stay wide and rip up to shreds.

    Angelino is not good enough for us but a huge liability for us is Sterling not getting back to help any of our left-backs, it's half-arsed and doesn't go with the runner or overlap.

    When Laporte plays, he remedies a lot of this issue because he senses the danger and shifts across. In addition, teams are also wary of his excellent passing and ability to open up the other side of the pitch with his wand crossfield ball out to Bernardo or Mahrez.

    Personally, I also don't think Kevin should ever be in the engine room, he doesn't have the fitness capacity our game puts on it.

    He should play out wide, even if that means impacting Bernardo, Silva or Mahrez.

    Kev must play, as must another set of legs to help Rodri, who I felt very sorry for yesterday.

    OK, so we've cleared up the non quote. Slow, daydreaming, passive are few terms I can throw in about yesterday and other occasions this season. There have also been occasions when a touch more effort is needed at certain points in the game. So I am 100% sure Pep will be attempting to address those things by delivering a "rocket". A one to one chat, a rant, a coaching session. Maybe not my type and likely not yours but there's a few need it. If this form carries on though it will be a real shitter for this team who's achieved so much.

    Because he won’t play a youngster who he says is one of the best ever.

    Angelino is as bad a left back can get.Get that idiot out of the team as soon as possible otherwise we are going to have serious problems in the matches to come. He gets dominated,outpaced,tricked by every tom dick and harry.With the league now surely gone unless those merseyside bottlers bottle it up the focus must turn to the Champions League and Angelino must not start.

    With some stattos on here, if you smacked them in the bollocks with a lump hammer they’d say it was really encouraging because only 1% of people were smacked in the bollocks with a lump hammer that day.

    PSG made a £25 million bid for him before we went for him.
    Bit harsh there but fullbacks seem to be a problem for Pep.

    Best to adopt the policy of the Englishman abroad. When they don’t understand, repeat louder.

    im not saying we would have won yesterdays game but please play fern while we have him in his best role as a holding midfield player. That's not that im blaming Rodri at all. If you have the best in my opinion holding player play him there. Could be difficult now depending on stones injury. To much space in the middle of the park where fern wouldn't allow and protect the back 4.

    Ah right. Now I understand why we were soundly beaten.

    Name any top team in Europe and take away their best two centre backs and you’d see similar results to our’s, but that doesn’t explain how we’ve lost or stopped doing everything that made us so good in the last two years, lack on intensity on and off the ball, slow passive build up play and why the fuck have we just crossed the ball 1000 times in the last few months. Yesterday we played right into Uniteds hands which is just stupid from pep, clearly he didn’t learn from the Chelsea game where we got lucky in that first half
