Maybe it just sounded like that and they were actually punching their palms with their fists.

Someone tell me that Lindelof is being dumped this summer, he surely can't dupe another manager with his non-defending style of defending. There are worse players, McT, Telles, Elanga, Dalot but Lindelof's passive, anonymous, characterless defending is current Utd perfectly encapsulated.

Ten Hag has some job ahead of him but also a great opportunity, he has to rip it up and start again, top 6 would be a big ask. Purge that squad, identify a handful of players to move forward with.

Having said all that Rangnick is worse than Moyes, but at least we can be grateful that he has fully exposed the true standard of the squad.
Spot on Tibs.

I do sympathise with the FBs to a certain degree. Shit as they are, the fact the midfield offers no cover and the CBs have the sloppiest shoulders imaginable renders their position impossible.

The cover from midfield for the 3rd goal. Was like playing against the computer on FIFA on the easiest setting
Dalot and Telles are right up there as two of the poorest full backs I've seen play for United, I'd actually take Buttner over Telles and he was ****. If both are still at the club next season it'll be a sorry sight.

The defence and the midfield together allow so much space for opponents to exploit it's maddening. The gap between the two yesterday was ridiculous. Either the defence has to step up or the midfield drops back but no one takes responsibility on the pitch, or pays attention to those in the dug out. Don't care what Rangnick says to the press, they're certainly not taking anything on board in training whatever the f*** that is.

Both defence and midfield need a complete overhaul. Not sure I'd keep any of them. Maybe Maguire, maybe Fred? But the rest can go. McTominay has a decent attitude but that's not enough. A very poor player. Varane? Crap. So in short there's one CB and one midfielder (a #8) I think should be kept next season.

i know it's not a big deal but usually the vice captain gives the armband back to captain when they come on the pitch. says a lot about the current mood in the camp.

it's almost certain Maguire will get stripped of the captaincy.
The absolute least of our problems
