That's why we have to stretch the pitch.
There's always space somewhere.
And if it means crossing the ball more so be it.
Barkley and Cleverley are capable of putting it good balls from wide-ish positions as well as Coleman and Kone(!) from more conventional positions. Not to mention obviously the other players not in the team atm.
Utd have always been able to hit people on the break and they must have had teams sit back against them more than anyone else over the past 20 years.
It doesn't have to all be length of the field charges either.
It can just be direct play on the edge of the box like a fast one/two.
Interesting you should say that. Just been speaking to a United mate, who said watching our first two goals on MOTD was like watching United under Fergie.
Stands to reason we should do what they did so well - learn to terrify teams coming to Goodison. A game plan is all well and good, but if the defenders are panicking..
