Man United lack identity
The Red devils lost their opening home game of a Premier League campaign for just the third time. They lost to Everton in 1992-93 and Swansea in 2014-15. This will make United fans grow even more frustrated. On top of that their rivals are signing quality players. While Ed Woodward looks on from the directors box he will begin to feel the pressure of the fans. Who are yearning for transfer activity.
The Red devils are linked with new players everyday. Each player brings more criticism when the signing is not made. It seems unfair, but that is the environment that all top clubs operate in when results do not go their way.
It's obvious United need to get in some top notch bodies. But that will not change the problems they currently have, if they don't find a identity. What is Solksjaers Philosophy? Do the Norwegian perhaps lack Tactical nous? These are the questions that are popping up, having seen him struggle to impact games with accurate substitutions. I mean there is no pattern of play that repetitive. A way of creating space so that your key players is free to do their thing.
There has been a little time to prepare and I think most coaches would agree. Maybe the off field antics has played a role indirectly. One thing we know for sure is that the check book will be opened. Unless the hierarchy has lost belief in the gaffer.
