Our Thoughts As Madrid Outshines Man United

Manchester United missed out on an opportunity to lift the Super Cup for the second time in the club’s history, suffering a 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid. Ediale Kingsley and a Manchester United fan had their thoughts poured here.

 

Well, even a Barca fan got to love this Madrid.

Done and dusted in a clinical fashion. English teams must have really slept for too long.

But…Man United gave a good account of themselves. You really can’t say they didn’t try.

At times, you’ve got to start with your first 11. You can argue to Redemption Camp at Lagos-Ibadan express way and back, Rashford deserves to always start.

He missed a couple of goals, but in my opinion, it was the Keeper’s brilliance that was on the play. Fellaini was easily noticeable in the match.

Isco was pure evil and the monster of them all was Casimero.

Now, what could Manchester United have done better? They could have relied more on Matic’s long balls. We saw the results of a few he took. Great guy, awesome player. His shots were the literal assist that produced the first goal.

Well, there you have it. Manchester United is prepared for the season. EPL clubs beware!!!

Let’s not look at that stupid move by Lukaku, where he ought to understand his offside position and allow the better-positioned player to chase the ball. He’ll grow. Everybody can’t be the MSN, or the BBC (if you like).

A Manchester United fan, Osaze Omo-Egbekuse, had this to say about the match, “Matic has been the best player for us by a long mile for the past 2 games he’s started. He has so much composure, guile, experience and plays nice neat and simple.
I don’t know what has happened to Valencia. These days he’s more concerned about being a crunching tackler than the marauding RB he is. He had better wake up. He’s no Roy Keane.
Lindelof still looks raw”.

Osaze also had this to say about Pogba and others, “Pogba has started his over elaboration on the ball again. Micki has started his spells of uselessness that won’t do much to help his confidence.
Rashford def doesn’t have that killer instinct like Lukaku.
Now Lingard.!!!!! For the life of me, I still believe Lingard is not a “Manchester United” type player. I would rather take Welbeck than Lingard. That shows a lot about how low I regard him. Overall Madrid played better. They made it look too easy at some point. They made it look like the pitch was small for them while my players were running laboriously like they were outnumbered.”
