Yes to that, although our team did keep giving us hope every so often even till the end (only to give the ball away every bloody time).
For me the truth is somewhere between you and Rhino. Our fans were decent enough at the start, but soon gave way to almost acting like a home crowd (almost!).
That made the “shall we sing a song for you” and “sshh” etc. rather odd and stupid-seeming, given the Stretford End were actually constantly noisier than us for most of the game, props to them - it was no Emirates-style morgue.
i got the impression a high proportion of our support yesterday were probably part-timers like me.
Anyway, what I was seeing on the pitch felt a bit like a kick in the teeth and I didn’t feel much like singing much of the time. Bizarre how our players would build up a move only to just pass it randomly to the opponents. Or other times they wouldn’t bother with the promising move first, just passed themselves into trouble wherever they were starting, from including our own box.
Don’t know about others but it was almost like our best chances started coming when Krul started kicking it long, beating their high press and taking them by surprise.
Severely lacked Pukki though on several occasions... poor Idah is unsurprisingly not Teemu and was unable to make our attacks count. Not blaming him though, he’s only young, first full PL start, was heavily marked and Pukki has honed his effective style over many years .
