for GK , u can made 10 world class saves but ppl will only remember the comical error that result in goals.
The same goes for defenders, and strikers. Their mistakes will be remembered. - After a while a form appears and after longer while class appears. I know, DDG is not world class. You won't pick him in top 10 GK world wide and yet we need top 5.
But we need to focus on how to get a top GK, and perhaps its not wrong to give him stiff competition. He was in the top 5 GK at some point in his career and he is not old enough to be over the hill.
What we need is another 20-30 goals in the team. And that is only achievable if we have great forward play and a top poacher that does not miss or gets injured so damn often. The opposite of Wout Weghorst, if you must.
I assure you. if we score 20-30 goals more we will firstly forget DDG's howlers, he will be under far less pressure to deliver 1-0's, and we can all move up the table happily.
Its a big problem, its not easy to solve, it is very expensive. But it has to be prioritized. There is no way you can challenge in EPL with a heavy focus on tight defence - Van Gaal tried, Mou tried, we failed. All EPL's have been won with the top scoring teams either top 1 or top 2. It has almost never been won by the top defending team with least conceded or most clean sheets.
We need to chuck away Martial, Weghorst and anyone pretending to call themselves the strikers of MUFC. We are pure suck when come to attack. We also need to sack the people whose job it is to purely devise our attack - doing poorly again.
Of course I know its not so simplistic, that a single Haaland come will settle our problems. There is build up play, pressing, counter, bla bla bla. But DDG is the literally the last person you go to blame on the lack of goals. Suppose even if we have the best GK in the world suddenly today, I think at most we have 6-8 points more in the league. If we have the best attack in the league - come on, i don't need to sell you this plan.This post has been edited by lee82gx: Yesterday, 04:10 PM
