just one of those days for me, they were the better team on the day, we’ll be back next time, disappointing not to get the three points, hopefully we’ll get a win in the next game, no complaints

The key players got a rest against Yeovil, Sanchez ought to have given the squad a lift, we should have been up for this.

There has to be some kind of inquest into that performance. I do believe Joey made the wrong team selection. But their cant be an excuses for Smalling and Jones. Why they weren't at West Brom and Sunderland this season remains a complete mystery. The starting line up left us far too exposed in the middle and leaving Spurs with a spare man all the time. Within 15 minutes it should have been switched to a 3-5-2. Rashford should have started. That's nailed on. Martial was anonymous again. Lukheskey zero service.

It was gifted to them.

Yep, that was bad, but there are typically some who just have to go utterly Doo-Lally...

Spurs weren't that good... they were better than us, there's no argument there... but give any team a 2 goal cushion and they can relax into their football, and we just weren't anywhere near good enough to take back the initiative...

But... well, this was just another excuse for the doom merchants to spit their dummies!

Alf, they dominated us at Old Trafford as well, on our patch

And we didn't gift them two goals, they didn't just randomly happen, some sort of unexplainable cosmic event, they played some good football in the run up to them - especially the Jones one, they worked it out wide well and put in a great ball that's begging for an idiot like Jones to touch it so it flies in the back of the net

wouldn't want to feel like i'm a "doom merchant"...

remember when we got absolutely mullered by keegan's Newcastle and then pinched a 1-0 in the return... then reeled them in for the title. there's always a bad day but that sort of fight hasn't been anywhere to be seen for years now.

i'm not sure the work needs to be done on the training ground... work needs to be done on the mentality of the players.

I think it said it all when the substitution board went up and 9 of the players walked towards the touchline. Its a long time since ive seen so many United players play so bad for a full 90 minutes. It was my lad who spotted Felliani limping. "Is he fuck he's only just come on!"
But he actually was. I noticed he kept bending down holding the back of his leg. After 3 or 4 minutes he still hadn't run it off so fuck knows what happened there.

No Sid, they didn't just magically happen, but they were fuckin easy goals to avoid... the first was just a complete, collective brain fart from our defense... that happens, but let's not start stroking the "genius" of Spurs attack when they punt up to a speculative effort in 11 fuckin seconds... and if Jones has a left fuckin foot, they don't score the second... don't start turning this into something it's not... it's not me saying Spurs were lucky... better is better... but United would have struggled against Canvey Island with that performance!

We were shit... that's it... I don't expect to see us play like that again any time soon!
