Herrera shines when we're playing fast football. He's a good player.
Sid was waxing on about Bielsa at Leeds. Herrera is surely a product of his time at Bilbao. No suprises he'd shine in a fast paced high pressing game... this is why he's looked runabouty for the last 5 years - a one-legged man could have looked runabouty for much of that time.

All this talk of De Gea having to make a few saves - Lloris had to make 8. We were under the cosh in the second but we still cearried a threat.

Kane had a shitload of shots n all, and scored none. Rashford had one on target and buried it.

Our tiring and falling further back in the second half might be due to the fitness regime Mourinho had the squad on. We might not be up to 90 minutes of pressing and hard running. Remember how Liverpool used to look tired in the last 20 mins of their matches, in Klopp's early days.

Aye good shout, there'll definitely be fitness issues with the squad. There's that horrendous stat about how under Jose we ran either the fewest or second fewest of all teams in the Prem. It's because of his bullshit reactive football, were you don't press, you just sit inside your own half, defend like cunts and repeatedly give the ball away by knocking it long.

This is a great assessment of the game: United produced 60 minutes of pure Ole-ball and then: enter gloveman

Also note how it refers to Jose as "the king of pain" :))

nah spurs missed sitters and we couldn’t keep the ball in the second half, the defence and midfield needs major spending tbf, if that was joey you’d say us getting hammered and having none of the ball was probably the plan, it obviously weren’t here though they just couldnt cope tbf
