'United games more depressing than losing $1m': fans react to another drab night
- Man United hardly created a chance in the 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich for whom it was the first game under new head coach
The pre-season is officially over for Man United as the club have only known one victory in normal time [2-1 vs Real Madrid] and one on penalties [vs AC Milan, 1-1 in normal time]. The final game didn't lift the spirit. Here's what fans have to say:
It's not just this pre-season's thing:
I understand people saying pre season results don’t matter but this is the Utd we saw for large parts of last season, that’s concerning.— Pilib De Brún (Phil Brown) (@Malachians) August 5, 2018
Just push any buttons!
Well, what a lacklustre pre season this has been... Was bored from start to finish watching that game... Quick question, do United remember how to press, charge down defenders, show some urgency, you know, all that kind of thing??⚽️— Corey Burton (@coreyburton180) August 5, 2018
That provides some quotes though:

Matter-of-factly, Bayern wasted some chances:
Good result for Man United, they lost by just one goal— Ahmed (@Ahmed___Wagih) August 5, 2018
Is Jose justified in his complaints about the squad?
United have a class team but Jose really isn’t the man to carry the team to success he’s a defensive manager and we’re a attacking club doesn’t match at all— Keith connolly (@keithenjoyslife) August 5, 2018
Mourinho still missing key players, but that wasn't good just five days before the start of the Premier League season. Might be all right on the night against Leicester but there are still lots of question marks.— Rob Dawson (@RobDawsonESPN) August 5, 2018
Stats don't lie?
Another unwanted record for united. Not a single shot on target in 90 mins. It’s going to be another looong season of unattractive defensive football. Lots of draws and defeats against our rival title contenders if today’s game is anything to go by. No change from last season— ed (@EDasoo) August 5, 2018
Maybe it all has one purpose:
Mourinho doing everything in his power to demonstrate how much united need the signings he wants.— Paul (@yellapiss) August 5, 2018
