The formation change surprised them. The defence that had done nothing for all of the first half were caught out and if we had anything about ourselves we would have scored and made the game hard for them.

They adjusted, hit us on the break and resumed normal service.

Why I watched that for 90 odd minutes after reading this I'll never know. I guess I needed confirmation that it really was as bad as it was and it was.

They should be ashamed of themselves but I doubt they give a flying f*** tbh. If they told me I'd never see a game of football again after today I doubt I'd bad an eyelid.

Defeat Saturday and again v Chelsea should do it. Anything other than back to back defeats will be a sad indictment on Arsenal and Chelsea tbh.

Not just Liverpool tbh. Norwich out worked us on Saturday. Most, if not every, team out works and out fights us. They all want it more and have more pride. Have done all season. In fact, since about March Ď21.

Yep. Norwich played better than us, we just had Ronaldo. Theyíre basically already relegated and they were better than us and came from 2 down. Weíre playing as badly as anyone in the league right now.

I agree, but Ole got most of this squad to 2nd last season. Something massive has gone down.

AWB did pretty well at left back. Unlucky with the goal.

We finished about 30 points off the top. Sounds like a great season

We finished on 66 points, we'll probably end on about the same this season

Ole was never as bad as people made him out to be by the end. He finished above Klopp last season and had a very good record against Pep. The only manager post-Ferguson to make it into the Top 4 in consecutive seasons. Regularly went deep into cup competitions. Set a record for unbeaten games away from home in English football. The way things unravelled for him might simply be explained that there wasn't really big expectations of him initially because it was widely acknowledged that he was doing a rebuilding job. The squad did change a lot under his management and he had a squad and dressing room under his control. This season was the first time there was real expectation to win and with the new signings people looked to him to step up a level which he probably doesn't have in him as a manager. But it didn't mean he was a bad manager. He hit his limit and clearly everything that has happened since at least shows it wasn't all his fault.

Stop talking sense. This forum says that heís sh*t, all the players he bought are sh*t and that heíll only ever be remembered as Unitedís sh*ttest manager. I swear thereís more dippers on here than United fans.

The truth probably lies in the middle. Let's not forget that, comparatively, the verm had a dip last season and had lots of injury problems including their first choice centre half pairing for most of the season.

I think tactically under Ole we were all over the place and we relied on moments of skill or good play between the mediocrity. This season the good play has gone too and is largely mediocrity. Let's not forget that we went a goal down in most games last season too and the play wasn't great.

I honestly think Ronaldo was thrust upon Ole rather than by choice and that undermined him completely. With the contract situation of a few and them zoning out and the expectations I think it finally did for him and any cohesion the squad may have had was undermined by CR7 who has kept us going in many games this season.

Lot of factors all at once instead of Ole being great or Ole being shit but, let's be honest, he was out of his depth at United.
