    Bong & March


    2 Not allowed!
    Our weakest players by far.

    I know Bong is only playing as Bernado is injured, but I'd be tempted to play Bruno on the left Bong is that poor. And how March keeps playing ahead of Knocky is beyond me.

    Both Bong & March today looked bereft of ideas going forward and were always looking to break down our attcks by hesitancy, sideways passing or just plain not beimg able to see a pass.

    There was one moment today where March had about 3 opportunities to pull the trigger on the edge of their box but instead just kept going sideways until a Man U player nicked the ball off him.

      They play for the same reason, both are very good at following CH's instructions and reliable in defensive duties. Bong & March have regularly won back their spots despite having more talented players in the squad

      I think (according to the Radio Sussex commentary) that was immediately followed by United moving the ball upfield and Bong giving away the penalty. So if he'd pulled the trigger before losing the ball, no penalty and perhaps a different result?

      I’m surprised it took a couple of hours.

      I'm confused who are talking about Bong and March or Murray.
      At this rate we will be starting games with only 5 players given that the rest have been voted the clubs worst players by some posters.

      Its amazing that the only players to make mistakes are those that are playing and those that don't are the ones not starting.

      I think for the West Brom game we should just start 11 new threads all headed lets talk about ..... With the opening lines all starting why is ..
      .... In the team, Useless only started because its a cup game.

      **** me, reading NSC tonight it seems some have morphed into entitled Premier League fans in record time. Should be beating teams like Liverpool and United.

      I thought Bong and March had decent games today

      Bong made a couple of mistakes and he also did a few things right. Some of his crossing was really good, then there was that moment in the second half where he seemed to take 10 minutes to decide what to do with the ball, he should have just put it in the box immediately.

      If we are going to point out players making mistakes, Stephens made some today, including setting up Pogba for the overhead and giving away a foul in a dangerous position early on.

      March seems to have great games and poor games and you never know which it will be which is frustrating. He certainly should have been more decisive when he had the ball on the edge of the box and messed about for an age coming inside before losing possession.

      But we should cut our players a little slack though, playing away at Old Trafford is about the biggest challenge in world football and for the most part even those players who made some mistakes did Ok today, and despite some mistakes we ran an in form Man United pretty close.

      It's a squad game, all our players should face competition for places, and they do, but we also need to be reasonable. Without us making £60M signings, I'm quite happy with the squad we have in terms of quality and character but we also have to accept that we aren't going to see perfection from everyone every week.

      We ran United close at Old Trafford with our players probably playing at about a 7/10 for the most part. That's not half bad.
