  1. We played without our identity

    Johnson is wrong imo. The players could see we were losing it every time we tried to pass it into the final third, and that's when Preston looked dangerous. Going route one might not have been working in making chances, but at least we were not losing the ball in dangerous areas with players out of position. I thought we had the wrong team and formation, and just needed to stay solid till half time when Johnson could have made the right changes. We conceded because we got frustrated and Paterson left his man, charging to the right and leaving a huge space for them to hit us. Preston had 3 men against our 2 in midfield, and even more importantly they managed to squeeze right up without having to worry about anything in behind. Johnson then made the wrong changes at half time. We improved our passing but had no one to get on the end of the good moves. He has more than often got it right this season. But now I'm thinking we might need to go 433 more often, with Reid deeper, making runs into the box. And then we can have more advanced wingers.
  2. One positive from tonight?...

    Thought we needed to go 433. Said it at half time on here. We could have kept Duric up top and have eliasson and odowda in more advanced wide areas. With Reid, smith and Brownhill in the middle. We didn't have anyone to cross to. Eliasson really was superb. Lets hope he can do that on a regular basis.
  3. Three Not Fit

    Johnson got it very wrong tonight. But even at 0-0 and playing poorly, I thought we would eventually get something from those long balls up to Duric. As long as we did not get frustrated and leave big gaps for Preston to exploit. Then Pato chased over to the other side of the pitch and his full back had acres of room to run into. Duric was struggling to get back but should have taken the guys legs. We should have kept our discipline, as going in at 0-0 would have been decent enough. But we let Preston frustrate us.
  4. Problem with first half was Preston had 3 men against our 2. They have little to worry about in behind. So just need to stop balls into our frontmen which they did well. Paterson been really poor. But I think maybe we should have gone 433 when it was clear we couldn't get anywhere with 442. We got frustrated and pato charged over to the right leaving our left side free to run into which led to the goal. Could see that would happen sooner or later.
  5. Team For Preston?

  6. Duric concerns

    It seems like Woodrow isn't fancied at all now and was only brought in as an emergency 5th option. I wonder if he may go back and we get another loan in January. Sounds very bad if Johnson is comparing Duric to ledley king and Paul mcgrath. They both couldn't even train, King would swim to keep himself fit. Desperately need diedhiou back. Thought he was really beginning to show what he could do before the bad injury.
  7. Barry Bannan?

    Agree he is overrated, certainly by our fans. No doubt he is a classy player, but he can be got at by a team like ours that press well.
  8. Barry Bannan?

    Funny joke
  9. Barry Bannan?

    Is he better than Smith and Brownhill though? Better passer for sure, but is he better at everything else?
  10. Highlights up.

    Wish Reid had left that scramble to Paterson who was running onto it. Looked like we maybe could have nicked this one. Good result though.
  11. Man Utd FAQ

    Cheers. Just got it
  12. Man Utd FAQ

    I don't get why I can't book my seat?
  13. England can/can England win the World Cup?

    We have the best youth sides in world football. Like Germany did and Spain did before them. So we should be winning or at least doing a lot better than group stages or quarters in years to come. Of course people say no chance just because we've been poor for so long. But give it a few years and the talent should be there as we produce much better youngsters than we used to.
  14. I'm not talking about Messi or Neymar. My point was that henderson has performed better than the likes of flashy players like Gerrard and Rooney. Henderson is better defensively than Gerrard. Better at the basics. My point about those two players are they were a liability, failing to do the basics. And did not ever produce moments of brilliance in recent tournements. Henderson might not give you a moment of genius, but he doesn't let the team down.
