Sure he was negative in certain games like City and Liverpool away, but a draw in those games constituted a decent result at that point in the season. Ferguson did the exact same thing at times, both domestically and abroad.

 

You think you've played negative football in just those two games? Try at least half of the season. Boring to watch, boring shite football and all of that to finish 6th and try and get a place in the champions league by winning the europa??? Oh look negative football again, low block boring crap against Ajax. I don't understand how you watch this crap. If there was any other footy I'd have it on right now; unfortunately this is the only match. Tell me you are happy to have 30% possession and a lucky deflected goal... please do it.

It's fucking boring but if it gets us into the Champions League next season it's worth it. 

 

Fergie used to get us to play like this literally all the time in the CL in his later years.

If it wins you the Europa, then albeit... good decision. He's still a negative boring low block parasite of football.

Very happy with that. We've looked quite comfortable, and when one of their dribbles does net them some space, we have enough numbers back to mop up. Ajax seem to be leaving everything on the pitch, so I'm not sure what they can do to change the pattern of play in the second half. Still wouldn't mind another goal, but this has been a professional and assured performance so far. No mean feat given the atrocities committed on Monday evening, which must have been dominating the player's thoughts as they have most of ours.

You can't use technical phrases you saw on a tactics blog once as insults, you berk.

Would upset our (excellent) shape. Should bring on fresh legs further forward so we can continue to press / break at pace when possible instead. Maybe if it gets very late and they're just hoofing it into the box (as we definitely would in the same situation), more bodies / height might be needed. But a long way to go until that's the scenario.

Unbelievable bit of chest control by Fellaini a few minutes ago.

 

We look good when we have the ball. We need to get forward and kill this game off. 

 

Fellaini should have done a bit better with that header. Great ball from Pogba.
