That was scarily bad. It looks like we're under a manager who's completely lost the dressing room and is inevitably about to be fired

No one else in the squad has the tenacity or skill to pull off what Ndombele just did under that pressure in the middle of the pitch. Keep him fit and contented, Mourinho

Ndombele has so much talent. What a player we have there.
He just needs some fitness. The quality is there but he’s so unfit still. Miles off the pace mostly. Not helped by winks and Hojbjerg in midfield who are horrible footballers

Brilliant from Tanguy! That's what the guy can do when given freedom. Get Winks off for Lo Celso and the game is there.

Brilliant from Tanguy, you see what happens when you play quick incisive football ... now get Winks off for Gio & Stevie on for Lucas who’s been missing.

Ndombele what a player!

But bad first half. I Don’t blame Jose, players don’t bother to run..

Players need to ignore Mourinho's 'hit it long' tactic and give t ti Ndombele as much as possible.

I genuinely can't see any progress or signs of what we're trying to do. Different formations, different players, sometimes pressing and sometimes sitting off. It's all over the place.
Totally. Our identity is scatty at best. And it gives the impression on the field that the players aren't 100% sure what their eaxct roles are.

Don’t think we’ve been anywhere near as bad as Jenas is making out. He’s as bad as Neville when United go a goal behind. Our midfield has been pretty weak, but the front three and defence have been decent. Southampton playing well too, I think people seem to forget that the other team can have an affect on the game sometimes.

Looks like Ndombele of all people (who'd have thought it) was the one to finally go "you know what, fuck it...."

Get some better players in DM and CM and we could actually be a good team this season.
