What we have to realise is that although everything is far from perfect it is the fact that City are worryingly playing some incredible like the prem hasn't seen for a while. They treating the opposition like Utd did in the 90,s .Otherwise Utd have got off to a splendid start ( the debacle at Huddersfield aside)
Unfortunately Utd are not going to be able to match City's approach Jose doesn't have those players,hence the pragmatic let them have the ball and let them make the mistakes ( hopefully) risky business but it's worked for him, and not one for the blood pressure of the supporters.
I agree it doesn't look like he knows how to get the best out of Lukaku ,he did at least win several aerial duels on sat ,nearly scored and made the winner so you can't knock the lad for that, plus he's still bedding in ,De Bruyne,Sterling even Sane have been at the Emtyhad a few seasons now.
Pogba who got similar peters has been a bigger loss than everyone first though esp complicated by the injury to Fellani ,the sooner they are back the better.
The above 2 alongside Matic are a formidable 3some to face.Mikit is taking far too long to show his best form and I would sooner see Rashford in that place ,I agree with GNev that Martial never seems to playing 100% its up to Jose to unlock
You can forget Lindleov he's toast other than in the worthless or the CL deads.He has found it hard than most to settle,give the lad time.,otherwise if the defenders can stay fit for more than two weeks at a time ,Jose is comfortable with them esp protected by the 3 beasts in front.
The goal sat came from a long pass down the field by DDg not a hoof which got City a similar goal for D bruyne in the derby,it takes all sought,one of City's goals on sat was magnificent for the number of passes and I agree it's nice to see ( well) but it's with a lot of risk ,Utd got the same result with minimum passes,it takes all slights.
One last slight criticism is that I don't get the approach to set prices ,firstly corners If I was Jose I would fine any cunt who hit the first man at a set piece,second I get frustrated that they get under the ball and don't attack from a wider deeper position.Utd should getting more out of set prices or should if they have the 3 mentioned!Smalling,Rojo,Ibra attack the ball.
The complete fuck up at Huddersfield has spoilt an otherwise great start considering the injuries.
