We donít keep the ball particularly well, so possession-based football is clearly not what weíre aiming for. We donít move the ball particularly quickly, so direct and attacking football doesnít seem to be on the agenda either. For all the pace we have at times our counter attacks are abysmal, and thereís a worrying trend for whoever is on the ball to keep running with it and not bother looking up to make the right pass. There have been multiple times Iíve watched us lately where the break has been on and yet the player in possession will hold on to the ball long enough to allow the oppositions defense to get back into shape. Rashford and Lingard are both absolute nightmares for this.

Moyes - cross it in
LVG - possession is more important than goals
Mourinho - defensive team, units all across the pitch, wait for the opposition to make a mistake and attempt to capitalise
Ole - ???

There is absolutely no cohesion to our style of play and itís a huge concern for me, Ole isnít just the caretaker manager now, heís been here for nearly a year and something has to give.
