Totally undeserved scoreline 14:12 - Aug 19 with 2120 viewsMrSwerve

In my opinion. We passed the ball well and defended well for much of the game.

What it does show though is how threadbare our bench is.

Really, really poor substitutions by Clement today.

He said we wouldn't be getting tonked 3 / 4 nil under his management, but his changes caused this today. He'll learn though.

I don't think he can win in this situation. He made changes to chase the game. It's the personnel that he had available to bring on is what the problem is in my opinion.

Took off the wrong players though. Fer has had an absolute nightmare and his mistake killed the game.

Maybe Mesa could only last 60 though.

Can't legislate for Fer having a brainfart for the second and carroll's assist for the third either.

Adding llorente and ki to that squad still leaves us well short of quality and legs in midfield.

Marginally better than Soton, but we just don't have enough quality in the starting 11 let alone the bench. I'm not sure what else PC could do, albiet Routs lost the ball 5 times out of 7 and McBurnie almost feel over unopposed on I think only touch. Our squad is the weakest v peers since we've been in PL. The performance was better than Soton but we still give Utd huge amounts of space and complete MF control in 2nd half. They took their chances unlike Soton but I'm not sure why it's an unfair score. They have quality strikers / AM who also missed quite a few chances. Two easier games on paper, so let's see how we perform. Llorente should give us more control holding ball up and naturally ability to head crosses on target.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Undeserved or not....the scoreline is reality.

Our squad is painfully lacking in depth of quality. We need players in defence, midfield and attack as it stands.

We have lost Siggy, not scored in 2 games with only 1 shot on target.........a big defeat today. A lot of opposition fans will be looking at us and thinking that we could be going down.

Big week and a half for the club........its going to be busy thats for sure.

Blame this result firmly at the Yanks door.

We were crying out for quality additions, but we've dithered whilst waiting for Golden Bollocks fee to be agreed. They should have dipped into their own pot 6 f*cking weeks ago.

Don't necessarily agree with that. Other sides will know this `Utd side have few weaknesses in their game. They'll also see that e=we'd kept them down to one goal for then great majority of the game and that our dubs changed our structure allowing Utd moire freedom.

And I'll say this. The score wouldn't have been that much different if Siggy and Llorente were on imo. We can't say if it wasn't for Siggy leaving.......!

Thats the issue, we didnt have Siggy or Llorente.

The squad has no depth. As stated further back, one or two extra additions should have been brought in before we sold Siggy.

Exactly what I said to the missus on the way back,thought the scoreline at the end was a little harsh on us,I'm not saying we don't have issues,but harsh non the less.

What pot is this? We know the owners have never said they would put extra money in to buy players.

They are very wealthy chaps, one would assume, so they could, and should have dipped into their own pot. They could have been reimbursed once the golden bollocks deal went through.

Please don't mistake me as being one of the divs that thought that the sell out was an investment, you're barking up the wrong tree if you are.

If holding out to the later stages of the window and using the funds from Gylfi#s sale means we don't end up in any kind of debt to the Americans, no matter how short term, then that's what needs to happen.

both mesa and fer were blowing out of their backsides before 60 minutes and united were bypassing our midfield at will. Gutted with the score line and hate losing but if it helps the board to spend a bit then I'll take a defeat to man you

I don't know when it startrd but there is an air of over pretentious, self entitlement from our fanbase recently

'Scoring goals from set pieces is rubbish' - well we havent scored a goal from anywhere yet, so ill take rubbish at the moment

'Didn't deserve to lose by 4' - what else do you deserve when the other team sticks it in your net 4 times?

It's strange, but considering the scoreline I don't feel that disheartened. Mesa showed enough defensively for me to suggest he will be an asset. The wing-back system worked very well considering that we've hardly ever played with 5 at the back during our entire tenure in the Premier League. That says a lot about Clement's coaching ability.

Clement went for broke with the change to a 4-4-2 without a holding midfielder. It ultimately cost us, but leading up to the crucial second we looked threatening at times. He probably should have delayed the change for a further 10 minutes or so.

Yes, we obviously need to strengthen, and today re-inforces that. But that would have been the case even if we'd miraculously won. We also have Llorente, Britton and Ki to come back.

The main thing that gives me confidence for the season ahead is that I have confidence in Clement's competence. We should be comfortable with a few decent additions to the squad.

I don't think they've got much of a pot and even if they do, I wouldn't want them lending the club money, which I assume is the only way to do it while they aren't sole owners?

Agree with the gist of your post though. What they should have done is sold Siggy 6 weeks ago, or at least shortly after the initial bid.

Also agree with blaming them for the state of the squad. I thought they started this transfer window really well, moving out Gomis, Tabanou, Amat and Borja. Then we signed Mesa and recouped most of it via Cork. They've really fcked up from that point on though.
