I took my Utd supporting mate last year. So spent ages after the match analysing it. We were fairly comfortable until they scored but like many matches we had very little ambition. It looked like we were happy at 0-0. And generally we are. As soon as they scored we didn’t look to have another gear. ...

We held onto all of our best players.

When everyone is fit we have a balanced squad.

We’ve got brought in a fair few u23s that might turn out to be good long term investments.
