Manchester United's Problem With The Never Give Up Mentality

Manchester United's Problem

They lacking the mentality especially that of winners (never give in, the die hard and wont beat us in anyway teams). They no doubt still lack physicality, fitness, balance, control, intensity and pressing especially OFF the ball from the back to the front and movement & creativity is weak.

They also critically lack defensive structure and solidity.

They don't assert themselves completely on teams, can't control games, dictate the game it's tempo and finish teams off.. Whilst continuing high levels of sustainability in everything we doing, mostly in those crucial stages & moments of the game..

Seriously need a complete overhaul of that horrible midfield firstly as the major concern urgently (apart from Bruno obviously keep him and maybe just maybe Pogba with Van De Beek give them a chance of proving themselves and see what they can offer in this system of pressing and intensity. Maybe Lingard as well but he looks like his leaving).

Get world class quality midfield player(s) at the least get one now in this window to stabilise things and one in the summer as we definitely need at least two overall (preferably be a N'Golo Kante type of player(s). Or otherwise we will definitely play Europa League no doubt.

Secondly they need Fullbacks who as well can be Wingbacks when needed (in the mold of the likes of Robertson from Liverpool as an example to be honest), fullbacks who can do it all both Defensively and offensively and can be entrusted at the same time. Provide the energy, the options, width, crosses, link ups and creativity upfront and add numbers.

All the while being as solid as ever defensively whether it be on one vs one situations, closing down quickly rather than "falling back", tracking back, the pressing from the halfway/upfront line and overlapping all round nonstop (with physicality, fitness, stamina, calmness, intensity, pressing, smartness, strength and pace are the most essential/crucial in modern day fullbacks and wingbacks same with midfield)..
