Despite the proclaimed “aggressive” and “dynamic” style, Manchester United’s play has become mundane, relying on narrow wins, like Victor Lindelöf’s goal against Luton. The lack of midfield dynamism and creativity is evident, and false dawns, such as Scott McTominay’s late goals against Brentford, highlight a season struggling to gain momentum.
Manchester United’s lackluster style
Newcomer Alejandro Garnacho stands out as the team’s main attacking threat, showcasing a willingness to take risks. Manager Erik ten Hag must inject style into United’s play to redefine the promised “United way” and achieve more consistent success.
However, there are several disagreements from fans with regards to how Ten Hag runs things. On one hand, Manchester United fans are praising their manager for having a high pointer in comparison to other managers. On the other hand, they state that the team is now “awful” to watch and that Ten Hag’s expensive construction of the team is poor.
