I saw Southampton get punished by Chelsea yesterday. They were abysmal.

Any united fans shed any light on what the problems seem to be? You have the most expensive centre back in the world and spent nearly 900 million isn’t it since sir alchy left and seem to still be losing games?

I’m a united fan and we’re crumbling left right and centre.

It’s a case of gambling on young players and losing the bet miserably. Rashford looks like he’s less experienced than 3 seasons ago yet he’s expected to be the voice of the dressing room.

Then an overall lack of motivation against the lesser teams

Bad stuff

Poor recruitment is killing us, anyone who has a decent season we end up going for. Don’t seem to be able to unearth any hidden talent or think past just spunking cash in someone who hits some form.

Let go of a lot of players without having a sound replacement, relying on ‘youth’ who simply aren’t up to standard. Most are mid table players at best and it shows in the league position we are.

Maguire doesn’t look half the player he did at Leicester already, wan Bissaka is decent defensively but gives the ball away a lot and isn’t great going forward. Daniel James looks like good business but still has work to do on his overall game.

Ole is way out of his depth, should have just given him a year to see how it went. Now we kind of have to stick to this long term plan or we end up looking worse than we already do.

Not quite premier league discussion but this came off a few weeks back and didn’t even realise it until a few days ago.

The last one ended with exactly 9 corners. Evil

United is reflection of football in general. The game is dull and lacking in passion or a desire to entertain. The overpriced poorly tasting food and underwhelming club shops add to my not wanting to see another game in a hurry. I can see why a kid would rather play Fortnite.

^^^ Best United have played all season yesterday. Although not difficult given recent results.

I can't ever say going to a club shop has been a part of my footballing experience, other than when I was a kid. Food at Selhurst Park is now half-decent, although overpriced but the pricing is the same everywhere in the prem.

I checked out our fanzone for the first time only because the pub I usually go to had 3 staff on and we weren't getting served before kick-off. Thought it was well done, loads of kids there, competitions and prizes to keep them entertained, mascots and cheerleaders interacting with them and a comp to get on the pitch at half time for a Penalty challenge. When I was a kid you'd have to pay to be a mascot to get on the pitch at half time, so much better now IMO. Those kids that were there for the first time will definitely remember their day out at the football and if it helps encourage the next generation of fans to fly the flag in the Holmesdale End, then I'm all for it. Cool

…. time you had some kids then (if you can) or maybe you can't and don't and that's too bad.

Nothing quite like bringing your own smugness after becoming a father for the first time at the ripe old age of 37 into the football chat. Laughing out loud

I'll take my nephew for now but thanks for your concern Sticking out tongue
