Man that was hard viewing, not even the fact we lost, more so because it was everything I expected to see. Predictable lineup with the same potential problems that we have every week and what do ya'know it's the same old crap that unfolds before us. I thought the players put in the effort, the whole motivation thing seems like a smokescreen to distract from the fact that we just aren't setting up in our strongest lineup. Like for like subs and absolutely no imagination or attempt to give United something new to deal with. If I was the opposing manager I could write down the substitutions we will make before the match and get 99% of them right. The players aren't executing whatever this plan A is, but I won't take seriously a manager who can't see that you have to have more then one approach to win a football match. Maybe it's admirable to think that your brand of football is/will be so dominating that it will crush anything that comes into it's path, but realistically this doesn't work for any top team and you have to be more malleable to create your own success. On to the next match..
