I think that is a bit of a harsh judgment. Remember that there is more running off the ball, more sprints and more pressing.raycreative wrote: ↑Sat Jan 19, 2019 7:50 pmSecond game in a row seen from a totally different light
If this was the Jose era we would have been accused of parking the bus and playing boring football but under Ole it became a "magnificent result"
Against Brighton despite some saying we were not under the cosh we were under the cosh
I would go as far as saying we were hanging on
If this was a jose team that had ended up clinging on he would have dogs abuse but as this is Ole the great run continues despite an average performance against an average and well organised team
I also like the comment that it is a fitness issue due to the way Jose played
These are professional footballers over half way through the season having a week training in the sun in the Middle East
If fitness is the issue they should be ashamed but honestly it is not
The same weakness's appeared again
Poor at defending set pieces as we have no centre halves who can dominate(still)
Fullbacks were better but not top class
When Pogba stopped dominating the team stopped playing
A good result with an average performance
Under Jose we used to stand off the ball and the Brighton goal came against the run of play.
Lingaard missed a sitter from a wicked Rashford cross.
I don't think Brighton created other clear cut chances.
So yeah 2-0 is a dangerous scoreline. There have been more one and two touch footy. Possession stats have improved.
There are positives and negatives due to the fact that we a vulnerable after the 70th minute.
It's not easy for players revert to the Man Utd style. I think we need to be more clinical in front of goals
