    Disappointing result, but I left far more disappointed in United's performance.

    All I heard leading in was how things were different now with Mou gone. Now the players are "having fun" and playing "attacking football." Then, at the first sight of a team that isn't a minnow, they immediately revert to playing the most Mourinho game that ever Mourinho-ed. Spurs completely vacated the midfield all game long (and especially once Sissoko got hurt) and I still couldn't tell if it was United or Burnley that was playing.

    That’s such a lazy comparison to make

    Jose teams are notorious for making games ugly. They don’t play expansive regardless of the opponent. He needs hard working players at at least nine spots and requires everyone to focus on the defensive rather than encouraging freedom from his players.

    Ole has done the opposite over the first few matches. Even here, ManU didn’t sit in a shell and with two banks of four and just pump long balls. Rather, they played without natural wingers and pinched narrow, forcing Eriksen and Lamela to beat them with a cross (which is not a strength of either). That’s why I thought the Llorente sub was great. I still thought ManU played good football in possession. Pogba was the best field player by miles.

    The reality is that you beat Spurs by setting a mid to low block and allow their fullbacks to push on. The big thing for me was Lingard sliding wide when Spurs were in possession so that the fullbacks didn’t get overloaded. Rashford sat higher and just found space, which is how they scored. Spurs CBs are great on the ball and 1v1 in tight positions, but they aren’t pacey. I was kind of surprised to not see Sanchez since they were facing Martial and Rashford.

    I think it’s too common to see Team X have more possession and shots and people say “well Team Y parked the bus and didn’t try and play.” Why would you try and out possession a team like Spurs? That’s just being naive to the strengths and weaknesses of both teams.

    Jose teams score a penalty against Burnley at home in the fourth minute and his midfielders don’t see the other penalty box the rest of the match.

    Ole also looks like he's about to try and steal some vibranium or maybe lead an ape rebellion

    I would be more disappointed in Spurs' inability to shoot at anything but the exact center of the goal. De Gea was great, but Spurs kept shooting basically right at him:



    Maybe try shooting it away from the goalie?

    Thanks, gaffer. De Gea never had to move at all to make those saves. What dynamite analysis!

    I'm just saying that it's not good that Spurs created the best 5, or more, chances of the game, but Lloris made the best save of the game (on that Pogba chip).

    The vast majority of my comment had nothing to do with Spurs.

    Yet, you've made it about Spurs. HMMMMMM

    Deflecting from what? I acknowledged that it was a disappointing result. Of course, I would have loved to seen more clinical finishing. I also believe that type of performance produces 2 or more goals against most other PL sides.

    None of that has anything to do with my original statement.

    But I guess Spurs be all in ur heads these days.

    I think the reason why Spurs lost that game is probably because all of their players past, present and for all of eternity are mongoloid fucktards.

    Sound logic. How could anybody possibly refute it?
