Ah well there is a positive at least, Fellani's third card of the season, means he will be banned in a couple of games time.

Fellaini is not the biggest problem. We are slow to the ball and wasteful in possession and we create nothing.

Same as last year.

Watford just wanted it more and gave everything.

Gives away possession for a goal and then gives away a penalty, we may be poor in general but he has stood out as a big problem for a long time.

toothless display, no direction and Watford were the better team. Rooney is living off "past" glories...Mourinho needs to show some resolve and pick players on form and ability to fit the system he wants to play.

No system, square pegs etc. A bit like England over the past 20 years. The players are there, but don't work together.

Harsh on Young BTW, he's played well whenever and wherever asked to play the past 3 years.

Rooney is of course the biggest problem. Missed composure of Blind, i'm a big fan of his.

You simply can't play Zlatan and Rooney in the same team, or even Rooney and Pogba either.

Does anyone think this current team could/would perform better under Fergie's management?

great question. I have no idea. I'd like to think that he wouldn't persist with Fellaini, so we'd at least be a little better in one aspect.

Jose will get it right, but the balance of the team is not good at the moment.

I think Rooney will play midweek, he needs to find some form very quickly.

I would play Blind, Schneiderlin/Herrera, and Pogba in midfield, Zlatan up front supported by Rashford and an other, depending on who is fit.

City in the next round. Interesting.

That Jose / Pep magnetism strikes again.
