If you want to read into our friendly line up, Kean is definitely off. Not even made the bench. Worrying that DCL couldn't make the squad. With Richy still in Tokyo, essential that we sign another forward, and soon!

Same old same old, 1-0 down, after 15 minutes with 23% possession and 23 passes.

Richarlison missed pen for Brazil in the final. hope they go on and win and he doesn't have his confidence knocked by it!

Absolute disgrace, the executives at the club need sacking for some of these players we have signed in the past few years, this squad is the worst I can remember, even in the 90s we at least had players who would fight for the shirt. This is going to be an awful season judging by today. Pathetic performance from all 11 players on the pitch in the first 45.

3rd preseason friendly in and you want some of the board sacked? That would really help the cause wouldn't it 🙄😂.

So its better to move forward as we are?

I can understand the frustration. Rafa has probably the most difficult managerial job of his life trying to mold this lot into a good footballing side. I don't believe that the previous managers have been all that bad apart from Big Sam but nobody so far has been successful, hopefully Rafa will be the first.

{Ed025's Note - we all do mike, but its one hell of a challenge mate..

It's a friendly, DG, and we haven't got a recognised senior striker in the squad. Did you expect us to steam roll a good Utd team?
But you say you want certain members of the board sacked, so please explain how that would help us 'move forward'

Gbamin and Kean were pinged by the NHS app. DCL has a minor toe injury. Bad result still.

{Ed025's Note - i know it was only a friendly hugo and we had players out, but it did highlight just how thin our squad is mate..

I didn’t know there was such a thing as a friendly game against Man U.

Its thin and generally bad I think, Ed. We’ve been in dire need of a reality check for a while I think. Far from where we think we are or think we deserve to be.

{Ed025's Note - very much so hugo, time for them all to step up to the plate mate..

How long have we been saying that though, Ed? Seems since Moshiri came in. Too scattergun. Least when we were punching above our weight, we had that to fall back on, now we’re just bad. Top to bottom.

{Ed025's Note - i wish i could disagree hugo..

9 conceded in last two matches against Premier league team and that's with the opposition declaring and Ancelotti and Benetiz in charge both universally agreed to be top managers/ tactician, no money, record signing in hiding and likely to never play again. Main striker injured, Ricky half way across the world and will be in need of a rest sometime soon. That said will still waste a fiver on top four finish because you never know!

Some over-reaction to a friendly game I think. It's main purpose is to give players some game time; no-one got injured, 20 subs each, strikers not playing, nothing riding on the game, youth players given a chance to play in the first team, some of them for the first team, at Old Trafford as part of their development. Rafa will probably have made his mind up about Delph and a few others if he hadn't already, maybe even an element of putting players in shop window.

We already knew the team needs some radical surgery and today's game doesn't change that: Priority: RB, then CF if Moise goes (likely) , CM/ AM (2 if James goes) , CB if Yerry goes, possibly another RW but Gray and Townsend actually looking decent. Fingers crossed we can get them in by the end of August.
