We weren’t crap against Newcastle. We deserved to win and played some very nice stuff, , but there were concerns about how easily a shit team got behind us. As did Wolves. As did Southampton. As did Young boys. Some ended well, some didn’t, but our general levels needs to improve, if we’re to be taken seriously bad title contenders.

Of course we need to improve, but tbh we are going to play in a way that will usually give the opposition *some* chances. Suffocating possession stuff a la city is not really United's thing.

Chances, sure, I’m more concerned with performances levels being poor and losing control of games.

Home, we’ve been fine, with danger signs.

Away, we could have had no complaints if we’d lost all three. We’ve created so little and been largely outplayed by average opposition. It’s a concern. Not terminal, not soaked sheets, but a concern.

When the season started, we were looking at fixtures and hopeful we could race out the traps, make a statement etc. It’s game 5 and we’re already saying we need to improve.

We just about deserve what we’ve got so far, but 10 from 12 and top doesn’t tell the whole tale imo.
