Utd Lack Identity Under Ole

Danny Blind said: “What is the identity of this Manchester United team? What is his plan?

“It is exactly that what is missing with Solskjaer.

"There is not a tactical plan. His team are not able to put pressure on their opponents like Manchester City.

“It does not always have to be full pressing but we don’t see any of it – everything in the United team is based on the individual qualities of players.
They have those qualities and it often gets a result for the team. But it is never a team result. It has not been looking good in a number of matches.

“United struggle to be dominant – that is the whole problem."

Like Ronaldo, Blind was particularly unimpressed with the display in the 1-1 draw with Everton last weekend.

He added: “After they took the lead against Everton they started to wait for them in their own half.

“They want to score on the counter. But that is not good enough for a club like Manchester United.

“The next thing that you see is how they struggle to turn the game around when Everton equalised. They hardly created any chances.

“The results are not good. He lost against Young Boys, against West Ham in the cup, against Aston Villa and they were lucky against Villarreal because of Ronaldo’s quality.

“And they only just got away with that result.

“It has to improve and it can improve. We cannot say that Solskjaer has had a long career at top level as a manager before United.

“Yes, he was a champion in Norway. But that is a different level. I know why he gets more time than other coaches, he is a child of the club.

“He scored that legendary goal in 1999 which helped them win the Champions League.

“But all that is not enough for what is being produced right now."

Ronaldo’s addition has not helped the balance of the team, according to Blind.

He said: “You are not going to change Cristiano anymore in his thinking and his approach to the game.

“So Solskjaer will have to come up with a playing style for his team where Cristiano can still flourish and the team can still put their opponent under pressure.

“Cristiano has come back and scored some important goals.

“But his presence in the team requires a different way of thinking tactically.

I think Moyes changing the staff is an issue that is overplayed. There were bigger problems that were both out of his control, but also down to him just not having the status to replace a man like Fergie.

Nothing to do with status.

He just wasnt good enough to manage United.

Moyes was sacked as soon as it was mathematically impossible to qualify for the next seasons champions league.

Are we at that stage already? (You'd think so judging by the daily bleating)

Ole has to go if we don’t mount a title challenge this year. He’s had long enough.

They effed up on Moyes, Moyes should still be manager here, should never have hired LVG.

…….

This has to be a WUM comment surely.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think Moyes was given long enough? And properly backed in the market?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Seven months too long. He should never have been appointed in the first place.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
when he started sacking and replacing all the staff with his own Moyes was dead meat. he was employed for continuity.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Would you take him now?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
we have got a manager
