I hate to think Shakespear is in the dressing room now saying well done guys, just keep it up in the second half, we will get a chance at some point.

Done well defensively, Utd have been good and need to get around Pogba.

 

That being said, our attempts to keep the ball have been absolutely pathetic, questionable whether we have fielded professional footballers. 

 

Also one of Shinji's terrible games

This game is too physical for Shinji, swop him for Slim half time & Gray for Albrighton, it's easy being a Manager innit.

So far so good. They've dominated but we expected that.

 

Yep but not THAT dominant ...

And they ended up losing.

 

we are 0-0 away to a rampant man united team. Bit of perspective needed!

 

Yeah, to some extent I agree but we've not shown any composure on the ball. It's only a matter of time until we concede, really.

Mahrez piss poor, Okazaki frustrating. Slimani and Gray at half-time.

Let's see how long it will stay that way. Attack is the best defense. I prefer to lose 4-1 while trying instead of parking a bus that isn't going stop them anyway.

We are woeful at relieving pressure just for a few minutes, yes Utd are decent going forward but we should still have players decent enough of keeping the ball for 30 seconds....what do we do during training sessions.

I said it and was laughed at. 

I stopped bothering. I just always read "but he won the league". In games where chances are few, he is the worst player you could imagine playing.

Mahrez has been our secondbest player, even put in a couple of defensive moves; header and tackle

Managed to see out the first half, no side can defend constantly for 90 mins, so Shakespeare will need to change something for the second half.

 

Oka far too slow and lightweight needs to come off and also Albrighton ineffective/quiet (which is rare) 

Slim needs to go upfront with Vardy as they need some extra presence up top.

 

I will eco what Col says that I also am surprised at how uncomfortable and hard we make being in possession.

I know we're not going to out pass teams but just general easing the pressure/keepball must be a given.

Just about got away without conceding and a couple of potentially dangerous free-kicks not given. Defensively we've looked fairly solid although giving too much space around 25 yards out, we need to keep the ball better, in the five minutes before half-time we gave the ball away needlessly three times which could've been costly.

 

Can't see us holding out but a bit more composure and we might be able to threaten a bit more.

Why are the pundits trying to convince themselves that Matas disallowed goal was onside. It was clearly off and its not up for debate

People complaining about Mahrez yet he's basically our only player passing forwards or looking for runs. Absolutely baffling.

Watch out, you'll be labelled as algerian fanboy.
