Desperately lacking a tiny bit of quality on the final ball. Anderson guilty of under and over playing several passes.
I reckon he'll come good sooner or later :wink:

43' | 1-0

Noble looks to pop the ball wide but there's no-one available - so he cuts inside and finds Yarmolenko who finishes just inside De Gea's right-hand post. West Ham have the lead!

Great goal, we had to get it or it would have been a massive missed opportunity.

Lovely finish :thup:

Great goal after a poor half. Now get Wilshere on for Fornals. He needs to work out the pace of the Prem and hopefully will come good but was so slow in movement and decision making. COYI.

46:06 | HT 1-0

A terribly dull first half is sparked into life in the closing moments by Yarmolenko's opener. It's a fantastic time to score and means both Pellegrini and Solskjaer will be amending their team talks. I'll see you on the other side...

We look such a slow team. Haller is class, but he can look a bit lumbering, same with Yarmo, Noble and Fornals. That's got to be the priority where to strengthen next time. We need energy.

Get in!
I felt that was going in as soon as I saw it fall to his left foot \o/

We definitely ended the half on top, but still lacked teeth. Fortunately we put away the best half chance we created!

shame the game's lacked real quality until then..

even then Yarmo was a little off balance and took a heavy touch but managed to find his feet fairly quickly and hit a half volley while he looked a little off balance...

both team guilty of misplaying passes - summed up by Diop and Fredericks on the touchline.


still maybe we can push on. no one has been awful, but no one (Rice excepted) has actually played really well.

little glimpses here and there - so good half time talk Pellers and get us moving on here please...

p.s. the site is a slow as treacle for me today and there isn't a lot of folks on here relatively speaking.

Don't really get the criticism of Fornals, he's been no worse in possession than anyone else on the pitch, the whole team has been slow

Ahh apparently, according to NBC's halftime analysis, Man Utd have a lot of injury problems.

Well that explains it then :thdn:

And now they're discussing Chelsea v Liverpool.

Christ on a bike do we need some pace and urgency, it is slow and predictable , the goal was well worked but we need to inject some life into our play, bit like the loading of the posts on this site.

I think a lot, like I’m about to, have tried and given up. No idea technically what’s up but I hope it can be fixed because it’s spoiling the site for me. I’m finding it to be not as smooth as the old setup at any time and pretty much unusable at peak times.

Nice one Yarmo & COYI in the second half!!
