Were Manchester United more boring against Feyenoord than they were under Louis van Gaal?

After a 100% start to the season, Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United have now lost two games in a row after a disappointing result at Feyenoord.

The club was always going to go through a few bad patches in terms of results. But everyone hoped that the style of play would at least improve.

In the Netherlands, that was not evident.

Did you ever think you’d see the day United fans missed Louis van Gaal’s style of play? Us neither…

The football under LVG was bad, but was it THIS bad?

Some United fans certainly thought so.

They just couldn’t create.

And eventually, Feyenoord punished them for it.

A poor start then, for a team that was supposed to be too good for the Europa League.

They’ll have to try a bit harder next time.
