Our in game management

Possibly the most frustrating thing is our in game management.

This season we’ve dropped more points from winning positions than anyone else and what makes it more frustrating is that I believe Ole’s ideal scenario is to go one up, draw the opposition out and then pick them off - which has happened just once this season against Chelsea.

Our problem and I don’t know if it’s the manager or the players or both is cowardice when we do go a goal up. On Sunday we were one nil up and when we had the ball in our own half we hoofed/launched it miles into the other half just to give ourselves a few extra seconds to compose ourselves.

So we have two issues. In some games we can’t score at all and then when we do score we go into our shells. How do we solve those issues? I watched Sheffield United/Arsenal last night and it seems they have a better version of what I’d imagine Ole wants. They went one nil up, defended well and broke with speed. They imo never looked like conceding and controlled the game. I can’t say the same for us.

You up for a challenge Robb?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Always!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Take you pick from these two:

Write a positive article about us, and keep it positive in the comments;

or

Don’t criticise the manager until after our next four games.

You up for either of them?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
You do realise this guys track record for back tracking and not fulfilling bets right?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Tbf I did change my name for 3 months and when I filtered VC for being a prize cant at that point i figured the bet was void as he didn’t live up to the challenge of not being a supervillain

I shall be staying true with this bet my good friend Cleverson
----------------------------------------------------------------------
So tell us what you enjoyed about sunday?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
To be fair, he seems to have taken the challenge of not slating the manager rather than being positive about us.

I shall take that challenge. After 4 games will be the second after the Bournemouth game finishes. I shall say nothing negative about the manager until then even though I’m sure there will be more ammo than Rambo’s garage
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Nice one Robb.

Nothing at stake, but will be interested to see if you can hold back till then.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

👍

I just wanna add a caveat that this article might have some Ole bashing but nothing outside of this article from today until after that Bournemouth game will have Ole bashing from me

lol Liverpool had like 2 good chances all game. We allowed by far the fewest quality chances on our goal but the problem is nearly every teams scores 1 out of 2 chances against us. I can't recall the opposition missing much against us. You see teams like Liverpool get away with opposition missing chances against them.

For example a minute before they scored we had created 3 chances to there 0 in like last 15 minutes before equaliser.

As a statman, I wanted to run these stats past you Hafi

Possession - United 32% Liverpool 68%
Shots on goal - United 2 Liverpool 4
Expected goals - United 0.79 Liverpool 1.03
Expected points - United - 1.10 Liverpool 1.52

Hafi, what are your views on those?

I think Sunday showed that we badly lack squad depth.

That could also explain this stat as well.

Our problem is that very few of our players are above average. A lot of them are mid-table level, and mid-table teams have a proclivity for not seeing out games when they get a goal up.
