Is ESPN inept?
Sanmi Ade
Sanmi Ade:
At some point, we need to address the clear bias that ESPN FC has towards Manchester United. It may never happen because they want to talk about the most followed club in England, so controversial takes like these always draw fans in.
Solkjaer beat Guardiola 3 times, Lampard 3 times, Mourinho once and drew once. You do not get to 3 semi-finals by not understanding your tactics.
The only time you can say he was rattled was the FA Cup semi-final and you could argue that he did not have his best team because he was trying to make the top 4.
And SEVILLA? We blew so many chances that had nothing to do with tactics. We simply missed and if he had a deeper squad, he would have changed and someone else would have scored. This take is lazy at best and frankly, we need better content from the ESPN team. Cue Mark Ogden to come and repeat some nonsense about United tomorrow or Monday.
Do better.

Why not talk about Frank Lampard’s poor defensive tactics as a manager, how he ruined a decent goalkeeper and made decent defenders into less than average. I assure you even if Ole wins the title, these lot will say it was nothing to do with him, whilst continuing to make excuses for Lampard. If by some miracle you haven’t noticed how bias they are, here is some evidence to ponder. Ole, Lampard and Arteta were appointed as permanent managers; Compare this channel’s initial reaction to their appointment. For Ole they were strongly against it and asked the question what has he done to deserve the job (No reasonable question). However, for the other 2 they were very positive towards their appointments as managers and never asked the question what they have done to deserve the job, even though they were far less experienced than Ole. Can anyone answer why the contrasting treatment of these 3 managers?

If you follow their logic Pep isn't a top manager because he doesn't ever change the way he plays.

They finished 3rd, despite all the odds against Ole and our players were clearly fatigued by the last few games of the season The next season hasn't even started and you're already asking "Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tactically inept?" The agenda is really clear here

Frank has absolutely no concept of strong bench😂
So you can't have top quality players coming on from bench??
Lampard buys truck loads of players they applaud him. And OLE tries it, Paul pogba is going out😅. Gimme a break

Siddhant Singh
Siddhant Singh:
these guys really sound inept...especially the reference to FA cup semi final and Europa League semi...the team had run into ground with a smaller squad as they have no depth in quality...had martial converted 1-2 chances, ole would have been genius isnt it..i could honestly do a better analysis than these guys...

You would see them giving out praises to pep while he is soo stubborn with his tactics after spending millions and millions..this is just shameful..

When peps teams are pressed they do not change the way they play so I don’t know why you guys keep criticizing ole for sticking to his own style.
Nishanth Ashok
Nishanth Ashok:
Wow the hate against United🙄. ESPN seems to think that the only good way of playing football is like how City plays "with lot's of possession" or how Liverpool plays with the counter press to catch out teams. Anything else and you are supposed to be tactically inept.

I don't know how they say Ole is inept or tactically weak. He's always tweaked his system to try and get the maximum from what he had. Before Bruno came, we were a counter attacking team because we had no one who could break down compact defences. Pogba was injured for 2/3rd of the season, and the midfield we used had Fred, Mctominay and Lingard/Pereira till the end of January. Only after Bruno and Pogba came did United start playing more out from the back, and keep the ball.

Do we have a fixed style of playing? No. Do I think that's bad? Absolutely not. I feel it makes us tactically flexible and easier to adapt to any change in tactics. That doesn't mean Ole is perfect. He has more to learn. If anything he needs to become more proactive, make more changes on the go for starters. But from what I've seen, he can learn and become better.

All these analysts hate ole for some or other reason.
It can be English bias, or maybe they just all wish they in his shoes.

Looks like only Liverpool, has the best player according to these guys mentality.
Seems like only world class players can win games.
They just degrade other players.

It sad ESPN

I want to know who said because VVB is in pogba wont play. Other teams sign players for depth good signing. United sign players for depth it’s where is he gonna play blah blah blah.
The Football Director
The Football Director:
I don't think he's been the flop some of these guys said he'd be. I've said before you don't get the notable results he's gotten against the big clubs if you're an idiot. But on this they're right: he's not good at making changes in games. If plan A doesn't work, he either doesn't have a plan B or doesn't know how to make plan A work better. Untill he figures that out, he's not winning anything no matter who he signs. That's why I was content to see him stay long enough to complete the rebuild and if he doesn't get a new contract after that I won't lose sleep over it. I like him, I think he's got potential, but Ole has to evolve now if he's going to keep the job. And Frank Lampard changes his tactics AND squad every week. I love him, but if Jorginho sneezes he changes 4 players the following week.

Come on Don, you can't be suggesting United to play an all attacking midfield without a proper CDM. That's not ideal in the Premier League at least. Not with that United defence.

United need to play more direct if the opponent press them like liverpool because their front there are fast and can exploit space behind pressing team.

The fullback need to cross more not just running up down all the time. And if they want to sign Sancho please sign in ASAP!!!!
