Mental Fragility Costs Man Utd Once Again in Munich


Onana’s error was one of many that have cost Manchester United dearly this season, illustrating his ineptitude in goalkeeping for United. If he wants to show why United invested so heavily in him he needs to regain his form quickly.

Drunk ambulance-chasing lawyer Frank Galvin takes on a hospital negligence case which his investigator friend (Jack Warden) assures him he can win with ease, only for it to turn into an adventureful tale full of twists and obstacles along the way.


On occasions like these, teams must be brutally honest with themselves – that was certainly the case after Man United endured such an exhausting evening in Munich.

Even in defeat, there were moments of promise for Spurs. Harry Kane scored from a controversial Christian Eriksen handball penalty while Rasmus Hojlund nearly equalized with an audacious volley that nearly hit the bar.

But suddenly the tide began to shift: Casemiro mishandled Fernandes’ pass and it reached Leroy Sane who fired home a low shot past Onana to change the game entirely.

Just five minutes later, Jamal Musiala charged into the box and found Gnabry who calmly slotted home, starting a crazy night that showed just how fragile this team can be, even when in control. Their next test comes against Burnley on Saturday; with just three points separating them from top four spot in Premier League they must find ways to get their season back on track quickly.


United’s tendency to fold under pressure continues to raise alarm bells. After an impressive first 25 minutes of control, they lost focus and gifted Bayern three goals.

At first, Onana conceded a soft goal for the home team’s opening goal as he failed to properly deal with a simple cross from Leroy Sane. When Leroy Sane darted into the penalty area unmarked and his run left untracked by defenders, Serge Gnabry was free to easily score with an easy cutback goal.

The second mistake involved Onana losing control of a clearance and allowing it to ricochet off into James Rodriguez’s path unmarked. Fans familiar with Onana’s excellent performances for Inter and Ajax will no doubt be dismayed at his current slump, but it would be foolish to dismiss him just yet; there may be good reasons why Manchester United pushed so hard for his signing this summer.


Manchester United players and staff have joined in an initiative designed to increase mental health awareness this week, known as Mental Health Awareness Month. It promotes five key ways of well-being recommended by Mind: connecting, taking notice, being active, giving back and continuous learning. Club ambassador Harry Maguire has taken an active part in sessions while actively encouraging conversation amongst his teammates.

Red Devils fans should take heart from Raphael Varane, Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat all returning to training ahead of their trip to Bayern Munich despite an array of injury concerns for them – Luke Shaw sustained an ankle injury against Brighton while Wan-Bissaka injured his hamstring during their defeat there.

Midfielder Amad Diallo, teenagers Dan Gore and Omari Forson as well as goalkeeper Tom Heaton are the other players omitted from the travelling squad.


Andre Onana’s catastrophic mistake effectively ended United’s hopes of salvaging something from this Champions League clash. After starting brightly, Erik ten Hag’s side were never in control after Onana allowed Leroy Sane’s shot through his fingers and, following Rasmus Hojlund’s goal after halftime, Casemiro and Serge Gnabry scored further goals to give Bayern their first group-stage win since 1999.

Old Trafford displayed all of their problems on Wednesday in Munich, with even their veteran players struggling under pressure from Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay’s presence alone being enough to cause issues for United. While those three can certainly cause trouble on occasion, United is severely lacking midfield depth which will give them the balance required. If they want to turn around their European form and avoid sliding further down the table this season – which will prove hard without Aaron Wan-Bissaka or Harry Maguire around – they need midfield quality.
