The Official Man Utd Thread - Part 3.

A year and a bit into his reign there's a lack of identity about how the team play. Not terminal but would be worrying for manyoo fans.
I can see what he's trying to do. But some of the players are not good enough/not suited.

The first 35 minutes against Liverpool at Anfield last season was very close to what he wants on a regular basis I'd imagine. But then Liverpool came into the game and it faded away into a nothing match really.
Another issue is I the feeling some players really struggle with tactical instruction. I don't think the high press will work with these players. Ten Hag is wasting his time doing that.
I think your right for at least some of the players, the thing with press at the top level is everyone has a job to do in sync and if one players timing is out the whole thing falls apart.

From what I’ve seen of Hojlund he’s the best in the team at it, Also Mount at Chelsea was excellent a pressing but obviously hasn’t had a proper chance yet at United.

It’s one of those things that takes time to perfect and United a ways out yet in this regard
