Man Utd are back to being awful – Gary Neville


Gary Neville

Football icon Gary Neville expressed disappointment in Manchester United’s performance, labeling them as “inconsistent and awful” following their 2-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest. 

The loss, featuring a late winner from Morgan Gibbs-White, marked Forest’s first victory over United since 1992 and left Erik ten Hag’s team trailing nine points behind the top four.

United’s recent struggles include just one win in their last five league games, resulting in a seventh-place position. 

Neville, speaking on Sky Sports, harshly criticized their showing at the City Ground, stating, “Manchester United are back to what they are – inconsistent and awful.” He noted the team’s defeated demeanor and the disappointment among United fans.

Despite the focus on United’s shortcomings, Neville acknowledged Nottingham Forest’s commendable performance. 

He praised Forest for being the superior team throughout the game, emphasizing their resilience even after losing their manager. 

Nicolas Dominguez gave Forest the lead in the second half, prompting a response from United with Marcus Rashford equalizing after a mistake by Matt Turner.

Neville highlighted the peculiar nature of Manchester United’s gameplay, describing them as a “weird team” that seems to accelerate only after conceding a goal. 

He criticized their lack of anticipation and expressed disbelief at their inconsistency, especially considering their exhilarating performance against Villa in the previous match.

Addressing discussions about the players’ commitment to manager Erik ten Hag, Neville questioned their loyalty based on the team’s contrasting performances within the same game. 

He attributed the issues to the team’s own shortcomings, stating, “This almost has nothing to do with Erik ten Hag. From 45 minutes to 45 minutes, they’ve gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. And now it’s the ridiculous.”
