Fergie time no longer working even with the man himself in the stands
- Man United 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
- The Reds never looked like scoring at the end of the clash like they did with Ferguson in charge
James Robson from the Evening Standard explains why United fans may feel nostalgic: ''When Jose Mourinho ordered Marouane Fellaini to join Romelu Lukaku up top for the final 15 minutes, it said it all. There’s nothing wrong with resorting to Plan B - Ferguson wasn’t averse to it himself. But this modern United lacks the attacking intent of its illustrious predecessors - the creativity and sheer menace.
''Last gasp wins were common place in Ferguson’s time - and none more famous than Barcelona in 1999.
Why didn’t we press high? Jose showed too much respect to Wolves and allowed them play. We regressed today. Oh and Pogba needs to upgrade his football brain and learn when to release the ball. It turned costly today— Chuck Okudo (@chuckokudo) September 22, 2018
''As Mourinho’s side tried to apply the pressure late on, it felt like his side were destined to produce a famous late win in front of their former manager, who was back at Old Trafford for the first time since undergoing brain surgery in May. In the past, rivals would simply crumble under the weight of pressure. Not so anymore.
