Harry my dear fellow, you've a bit of cheek to a waltz back in when things have kind of started going your way mate.
I'll say this for Jose, after analysing Ajax I thought they'd cause us problems, but that was a tactical master class, that bout Traore is dynamite but their front 3 plays attacking mids seem to do an LVG more than a Cruyff, they were like Rashford, beat as many players as you can going straight ahead then try and find one white shirt among 5/6 blue ones.
Fellani was given a task and he was impeccable.
Rashford was shite, unless you're giving him shorter balls or balls to feet, he hasn't the control yet to use his pace, he wastes a few seconds before he's in control and ready to bomb forward.
Thought Smalling might have been picked because when they were attacking, Smalling and Fellani were back which might also have made sure they keep to their natural instincts of not getting it out wide, even when there was acres of space because we'd clear it.
Herrera, thankless task but was always harassing them.
Mickey T had some poor spells but his goal shows you what he can do, there's not many players clever or skilful enough to try something like that in our squad, maybe Zlatan, maybe Mata. Game changers.
I was delighted to see the pressure valve being released on Jose, at the end that's what you want to see. If he can shore up that defence, surely Fosu and Tuanzabe can move up into proper squad players now.
I'll tell you what though, that cb Sanchez isn't half it, look at the size of that cunt and he can out sprint Rashford and Lingard, which, setting your footballing judgement to one side, are lean and fuckin speed machines. Cheeky punt on him woukdnt go amiss, and if Traore could play left which is what we need, I'd have a go at him as well.
Shows you though that when he really strategises, he can defeat teams, e.g. Chelsea and last night, if he can't do that 65 games a season, then improve the midfield and if he doesn't coach attackers, a left sided threat and someone who can hold the ball up is a must because that's not Rashfords game, I've no problem with Rashford coming on after an hour when teams are flagging or playing ahead of someone clever enough to play to his strengths like Mata or Mickey T
But aye straight into group stages, just hope City and Liverpool fuck up their qualifiers!
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.
