Keane & Neville slam 'unacceptable' situation at Man Utd after disastrous start to the season!

Keane & Neville slam 'unacceptable' situation at Man Utd after disastrous start to the season!
well that's what he said to us publicly gary what do you think he'll have made of that privately i think it would have been a shock to him obviously the promise in pre-

season

um but i think anybody who watched those manchester united players that he's been handed as his squad on the

start

of the

season

through the last year or so we will recognise that that's a familiar performance and the people above him should have known that that was an acceptable

situation

to hand eric tenhard that squad at the

start

of the

season

it needed improving more than it has been already now obviously there's two or three weeks to go in the transfer window but he needed three or four weeks to be able to work with them and i'm sure there's an element of everything every new coach that comes in thinks they can do better with the players there than the last coach because they believe they're a better coach and that's probably the case with this but the reality of it is i think he's seen what those players are today they had a good

season

those players when the fans weren't in the stadiums during covert but last

season

when the fans came back if you remember they came back in all those games and during when in the covered

season

if they went behind i don't know how many times they went behind and then kept coming back it was unrealistic once they now go behind in games they can't always come back in the dropping points and i don't think any...

manchester united fan any pundit anybody who's watched this team over the last 12 months seen those same players playing the same positions expecting anything different than they saw today eric tenhard will be disappointed because he saw promising signs in pre-

season

but the reality has hit home do you see any improvement from that performance today roy any cause for optimism no not really and i i think people have to be weary of gary mentioned here when people say pre-

season

i think that was a lot of pr announcements coming out of man united i saw one or two of the games and i still saw some of the same problems again we go back to a lot of the players in the

start

ing eleven particularly midfield it's the same characters same personalities okay some of these players have that there's elements of talent in the squad but when they do have a little setback they can't seem to deal with this can i go back to that dna of this club or the culture of this the players or what's going on the training ground it's not there i don't see personalities i don't see character you said harry mcguire used after the game saying it was a nightmare nightmare

start

well it's up to the players to do something about it harry's the captain after every game or the last

season

it keeps coming up we're disappointed we'll regroup we'll go again leopards and spots they've got to make some changes i know it's not generally always about just...

throwing money at it but if these players aren't up to it or good enough for man united right do you think the players i i think the players that they've got there though i think every single one of them that i watch is given 100 they need probably support of better players coming in alongside them i'm not i'm not sort of saying that there's nothing to do with this but i just asked the question i think they are giving their all but we saw the stats last year gary they don't run they don't sprint they don't that to me that's not given a hundred percent the world's coming out from the training over the last month or two they're not training properly there's discipline they're going to train on time that's got to be there that's that comes from within the group no matter who the coaches you're not better than anybody so it's very hard to criticize players and say they're not giving 100 but if the stats suggest more sort of last

season

it's obvious only one game into the

season

then they're not given a hundred percent i think today was a little bit of lack like a football intelligence they're dead open they can't seem to keep clean sheets you'd use problems for the club as we well know you said earlier i think that and we said it so many times last

season

the problem for manchester united is that the easiest team to play against in the league that's a massive worry but that's a big...
keane neville slam unacceptable situation at man utd after disastrous start to the season
insult you can give a team gary i know it's the only thing it's the openness of them is unbelievable they're chasing back something you see fred and matt tommy on that first goal they chase him back but it's like how have they got themselves in that position exactly well we know they're trying to make signings uh frankie de young is a is a long-term chase it seems and they've got another three weeks to try and get some of these over the line and we're hearing from sky italy just this afternoon that they've had a bid rejected for a former west ham striker 33 year old marco and out of it dave the first thing you do when the phone rings from manchester united is reject the bid because the reality of it is you know full well they've lost that game today they're actually negotiating now from an even worse position than they were yesterday and that's a bigger problem for them what about a i don't know i i i have no comment on it dave i've got a comment on everything in the world apart from manchester united signing marco another today i've got i've got nothing to say what has happened to monday night seriously go on mike what is going on and i don't like putting the boot in it's just yeah we've seen it now for eight ten years it's a pattern it's happening time and time again doesn't i don't even get we don't even get angry don't even get animated about it anymore it's got to the...
point where i don't even want to comment who's making these decisions who's deciding which players are going to come in you know there's a diet they're talking about uh of dan fletcher technical director you've got a new coach john martin obviously he's involved there's a new chief executive that's talking that they're going back to bringing alex ferguson and david gill back to the club my goodness what's going on i shouldn't write them off though should we karen week one it's week one right one of the best the best players for me today was cosido for brighton and why can a brighton find a player like that why can't manchester united why can they do that right and you know these type of players what that's exactly who they need and they can't even find them you know can't find gems and add them to their team and i think that's poor really in itself the rig that's participating look it weighs too heavy on some of the players you talk about the players look the time has come for the glazer family to sell the football club the time has come it's now well they were there today they saw it all didn't they so perhaps they'll offer a little bit more money to the for the for the transfer budget before the end of this window that's right having the money you've got to get the right player zoom with the right character make a talk about players you have to have a certain character to play...
for man united when there is sixty five seventy five thousand at the match and the moon in the groin are they getting your back you can stick your chest out and say i can deal with this i can deal with this expectation you don't necessarily always have to be the best player in english football you can deal with that expectation this group of players have we keep we keep seeing it we see it today again today they can't deal with even a setback okay bright and common they're neat and tidy and even when they go go up just relax you don't panic all of a sudden they give another goal away and then to chase the game the second half man united have to be better than that they have to be dave i'm certainly going to have a go at the coach the coach needs time lots of time and i've actually gotten to the point where i'm not even going to go with the players anymore because if you've got a business and the people who are actually working in that business can't do the job for you then you remove them from those jobs it's actually abused to keep them doing the jobs for longer because actually to be fair they don't enjoy it either the reality is those players either need replacing or supporting more better they have actually put some of the money out there dave seriously the money that was needed to rebuild that squad this summer you can't do it you wouldn't you would have knowledge i'm not getting eccentric about this day or...
exaggerating anything but they needed they had a they knew six months ago eight months ago 12 months ago that there was going to need to be investment this summer all those players were leaving like mata and matic and all the other ones that have left they knew they had the problem with martial obviously not being someone that has been fancy in the past cristiano coming to the end cavani leaving obviously the

situation

with greenwood not at the club anymore not in the club anymore you've got all that

situation

these these things have been known for a long time it's as if it's just hit them now but is it not more of a concern gary where they are targeting the the they've gone back to ayax to sign the center half they've gone to to sign the left back they're trying to chase target to the top of the pitch about every element of this of the recruitment so to rely the reliance upon the dutch league means that the recruitment of the 50 60 people who got work in that department is not being trusted by the manager because he wants to go to players he knows from holland holland has not always been the most precise market for the premier league it's just not always been the most precise market there have been good players come from holland but it's not the market that has the biggest hit rate so i am concerned about that but generally at this moment in time there's a little bit of despair just through the fact that the coach who is an outstanding...
coach has not been given the tools that he needs at the

start

of the

season

so that he can actually

start

the

season

with a new revitalized squad okay but on paper who's better team man united or brighton but he look he's only been with him four weeks five weeks and i think that we saw today to be fair that graham potter has been working with his team for a year or two he's got them you know even though they've lost the summer they've lost cucarella he's got them well coached they know what they're doing eric 10 hard to be fair has got them well coached in pre-

season

but the first sign of pressure those players have basically gone back to default which is what they used to do when the first bits of pressure come on that's what you do until it's embedded into you over a period of months and months you go back to what you used to do when it becomes a little bit sort of difficult and that's what the players have done today you make the point and everyone's talking about when do you ever judge a good team my players on pre-

season

pre

season

means nothing it's when just the real business

start

s it here is there a danger as well that the the the players themselves already had very frail confidence on the back of last

season

after that today it's only going to get worse yeah because we're straight away we're talking about it and straight away it's in everyone's mindset again so yeah they're going to be deflated...
you come in with hope of a new manager they're going to fix it and it hasn't and they're back to like gary said you revert back to type and it needs so much investment and the coach can only do so much and they're only as good as his players looking forward to brentford then next week i actually am already dreading the train down to brentford next saturday morning and already thinking about liverpool coming to old trafford two weeks on monday these are the most exciting times

start

of a

season

already thinking deep breath you know hang in there you know hope they get a result at brentford and then there's a little bit of confidence going into liverpool old trafford because we know what these types of games have done over the last few years they've been graveyard type matches not for the cults they forget the cults but just generally the mood in the ground because of what happened you know david moyes going back eight years lost games against liverpool ollie lost was it five was it five against the pool last

season

i can't remember five and it just becomes a really difficult moment for the players for the fan it's just it's just not nice and look amazing gary i'll go back but the reason you're playing for man united is that you can deal with these these occasions what's the point playing for man united if you can't deal with playing liverpool or having a setback like today that's that's the downside that's the big...
doubt about this group of players what is going on in the training group what is the feeling in the group there must be obviously lacking in confidence but you said i don't mind players lacking the talent but we look at the stats going back to last he's the morrison obviously today they stop running they don't close people don't they don't cover the they don't cover the hard yards that's the big worry the just one thing on the scene there would seem to be this feeling that if manchester united get frankie the young it would have been a successful window no they needed a lot more than just frankie the young now they might not get frankie young hopefully they do because obviously he's an important player to the coach but then that would feel like oh they spent 70 million or 65 million that's a good window no they needed more than that that's a problem with man united now before you get the the top players in as soon as possible now you're waiting and that is the problem there will be a bit of panic and look this shouldn't do but there will be that little bit of panic because the pressure will be big from the fans from the media tomorrow morning manchester united are a big story in the newspapers who knows it might look entirely different next weekend as we say it's only first game up so let's not write them i think you probably wrote city off first game of last

season

when they lost at spurs that came back
