Well, if the cutting edge insightfulness of the managers’ pre-match interviews is matched by the performance of their players, Liverpool will win by ten.

Solskjaer displays all the tactical gumption of a toddler.

Think he will try 4-2-4 again. Which was horrific. He has fooled himself into thinking Utd played well mid week, even in 1st half. Utd were abysmal in that 1st half.

Can’t see anything but a Utd win
Liverpool’s midfield is pants and Mane’s not starting,so certainly more confident now.

It really concerns me, if that’s how he comes across when doing media work, what message does he convey to his players?

And surely he can’t think the first half on Wednesday was anything other than abysmal. Sure, they created one or two chances, but the space they conceded when Atalanta were in possession was truly staggering.

You can’t blame Ole for school boy defending.
These are England internationals
Embarrassing
Yes you can, when it happens week after week after week. He has turned them into a horrific nervous defence, completely tactically unaware. At best, they are getting mixed signals in training, and have no idea when to press and when to not.

He’s the manager. What is he telling them? The first goal was absolutely awful. They learn nothing despite these performances being put in week in, week out.

Shaw and Maguire are steady in an England shirt. Today they have been dreadful. Buck stops with the coaching staff, end of.
