Re: English Football 2015-16

Our press was shockingly bad. You could see from the KO how high our line was which is obviously a dangerous tactic vs Theo/Alexis but as I said before KO LVG isn't changing his style and sitting deep.

Fwiw I don't mind a high press vs Arsenal especially with no Kos and Cech isn't great with his feet but first 20mins looked like our intention was to let the Arsenal CB's have all the time they wanted then press hard in MF since it's the only explanation as to why they were left completely uncontested.

Rooney has zero idea how to play the 10 position defensively but this is nothing new. Vs Italy you could see Joe Hart screaming at him to pick up Pirlo and vs Barca SAF was shouting "I'm the ****ing manager pick him up" wrt Busquets. Both teams got dominated and lost, he made Cazorla look as good as those 2.

Schweinsteiger was trying to do the job of both Rooney/Memphis and what it even more annoying was Neville in commentary saying "Schweinsteiger keeps vacating that position and Arsenal are finding the space to play around him" whilst completely ignoring it was because Rooney is a ****** and Memphis is quite lazy. The heat map vs Arsenal shows Schweinsteiger's average position as being higher than Rooney, if Rooney had any intelligence whatsoever he should at least cover for Schweinsteiger but no he basically just walks around pointing at people for other players to mark.

The last image cashy's posted there's effectively 6 Utd players (Carrick will do well to get across to cover Ozil's space) taken out of the game from a simple ball played into the DM, brilliant.

yeh but if two of your players arnt pressing/being lazy dicks, surely its silly/pointless for one man from CM to go bombing forward all the time. Neville did keep saying he hopes he finds the intelligence to stop. Surely the best thing for him to do was to stop doing it and LVG does what hes supposed to get paid for and sort that **** out whilst its going on. Just looked a whole cluster **** from them all

Re: English Football 2015-16

Trying not to feel bad all day over it BAIDS.

She did tell me to "get your ****ing hands off me" when I tried to help her up which hasn't helped my mood. Should have used this to absolve myself of any anguish I had.

**** her now!!! don't feel half as bad after I've wrote how she reacted.

Re: English Football 2015-16

don't get why Schneiderlin wasn't playing... carrick isn't the robust midfielder needed in the big games. seems schn is the newest guy to be taught a lesson by lvg for some reason or another. bringing on fellaini was so lol when you see he played as a 3rd cmf.

think all 3 of schweini/carrick/schneiderlin should have started with rooney being benched as he is just a liability vs better teams

Yes, it's very good. Some people need a certain amount of action to enjoy a show and if you're one of those, this show might not be for you. If that's not a hurdle for you, this show has really well written characters which are acted phenomenally well.

Quality has been consistently great throughout too.

one player not doing what he is supposed to positionally(rooney) ****s up the whole system(martial's positioning is pretty wtf as well tbf).

just look at the example from above again with rooney giving coquelin too much space


had he picked him up schweinsteiger could have dropped off to pick up özil and we would have been forced to go long
