    Nominations for Kane, Moura, Sissoko and Winks so far. Anyone else?

    I would have taken a point before the game but I am disappointed because we were 2-0 up and conceded a stupid goal a couple of minutes before half time, followed by a needless pen after we dominated for 7 or 8 minutes, it was their first period of possession in the second half never mind attack.

    It’s chalk and cheese because it’s exactly that
    Away game, very hot after a 4 hour flight in an intense atmosphere with a team that’s made 50% changes

    I agree but I have always been in favour of the DoF structure. I think that there is too much involved now for a traditional manager/chairman to work effectively.

    He bought some much needed drive and urgency to our attack.

    Dier would be back in the team for me.

    Add some fight in the middle, something we are lacking atm

    Sissoko does that every game he is Mr ’drive and energy’ IMHO

    I thought that he did very well too. He's been trying and pulling off things in the last couple of games that he would never have tried before.

    I think Kane’s phoning it in too, he’s not working the channels as much, he’s not using his pace or his passing ability to anywhere near their limits.

    I don’t like to see him stropping when another forward doesn’t pass either, he did it twice tonight in situations where he wouldn’t even consider making a pass.

    Flight and temperature are good points!
    The performance tonight was so CL final in so many ways!

    If only he could pass or tackle, or shoot or even possessed a footballing brain what a player he would be, hell if it’s only one of things he would be a decent player.

    Little did we know... or what we feared! We just can't seem to shut games down and control it

    I agree have said Alex Ferguson was actually one the last few years at Man U. But the pub I drink in no one understands football like us on here.

    Objectively, a point away to Olympiacos is far from a disaster. Thay haven't lost at home for ages, and have 8 games in a row without shipping a goal at home, including two CL qualifiers.
    They have also won 6 out of 8 games vs English teams.
    But it's the way we once again let a two goal lead slip, and the performance in general that is concerning.
    Ndombele and Winks as a pairing is not working yet. Both want ball to feet, and don't make runs in between the lines, or behind the defence, to create space. That makes the attacking play static and predictable.

    I cursed him out of it for that but on the second replay they showed, I’m not sure it was an easy pass as there were two defenders between him and Kane and the one coming back would have intercepted the pass I think.

    It also helps with continuity when the head coach leaves for whatever reason, the DoF in theory should appoint a new head coach with the same philosophy as him hence a complete squad rebuild would not be needed.
