Pogba, f in pass. 2 possible goal chances missed'

Now lukaku does the same. We need to learn to pass when there are better options.

Oh bore off, it’s a 2-0 away win and our first clean sheet in an age.

No surprise to see you slate a player coming on who scored ten seconds later, amazing

You really need to embrace the positives, moaning about players not passing yet we are firing in goals now. Exactly what would make you happy???

To be fair, we did look like we'd taken a big step backward tonight...our passing was awful and defensively we were pretty shaky! However, we came through with the 3 points and Ole has won his first 4 games...a feat only achieved by Sir Matt previously...so we can be thankful

We play like that against Spurs and we'll be battered!!

I thought we were pretty good, loads better than a month ago.

Thought Lascelles walked a tightrope, especially first half when he tugged into Rashford on numerous occasions.

I can't complain.

Speaking of Spurs, it depends which one shows up, the usual one, or the first ne versus Wolves. It can't be worse than the last time we played them, surely?

People like you acting your age. Everything I posted had similar posts in Red Cafe & other forums by the dozen, NONE said different. You clearly did not watch the match. Take a trip over to Red Cafe & see for yourself.

Saying it as it was. As previous post, check out Red Cafe as many felt much worse, a lot were saying back to Mourinho way of playing... go on take a look.

Why would anyone with an ounce of self respect visit Red Cafe?

I would be very surprised if the stats back this up. Just by watching the first 45 minutes it looked to me as if we had far more possession in their final third, and far more attempts on goal than under Mourinho.

For me it just wasn't quite clicking, but we can't expect to play well and win every game, let alone score 4 each time.

We won while not at our best, but the positive play was there. For the forth straight match it was more like Manchester United than anything we've seen since SAF retired.

Well his honeymoon period lasted well.

Ole out
Anyone would be better than Ole
Bring back Jose
Man City would have won this 5-0

Go to a difficult ground in January, and chalk out a 2-0 win, the fourth on the bounce. Can't believe anyone would whine about it.

We have the capability of playing well, of playing much better. We really need to learn to pass the ball to a player in a better position than we are. I can imagine if Rashford is in a great position to score, & Lukaku is at a poor angle on the side & goes for goal & fails, then Rashford will do the same when the position is reversed. This is not how we want players to behave. Take Messi, we all know he can score from all angles, but he passes to players in better positions, & they in turn often score a goal as a result. The favour will be paid back the next time. Everyone wins. Instead of 'some on here' running me down for my remark, take a look at the game & see Lukaku's reaction, he was well ****** off. The same for other players when they are in good shooting positions & the player with the ball goes for goal at an impossible angle. We know sometimes it comes off, but this is a game of strategy & getting a goal is the ultimate end for ALL players.

I think I liked it better when we still had José, at least then you had something rational to moan about

Micon doesn’t actually have an opinion, he is just the mouthpiece for Red Cafe. I think we can all confidently ignore him.
