This isn’t a record that the Man Utd fans in the Football Transfer Tavern want…
After weeks of build-up in the Football Transfer Tavern, the Man Utd vs Liverpool game failed to deliver on any of the expectations that it had produced.
Our punters in the Tavern were expecting a great game, but in reality, we got a cagey affair with neither side looking particularly impressive.
In fact, the biggest talking point from the game wasn’t a shocking miss or a terrible tackle as expected; it was actually a statistic.
Despite being a side that typically dominated possession, Man Utd had just 34% of ball possession throughout the 90 minutes – the lowest that they have ever had in the Premier League
It would appear that Jose Mourinho has finally arrived in Manchester – and he has brought his dull, slow form of football with him.
As expected, the punters in the Tavern found that stat particularly hilarious – especially given the huge array of talent on display for the Red Devils.
Unsurprisingly, it was a very similar story on Twitter…

United 34% possession, 1 shot on goal. Parking the bus is a understatement!!

United with 34% possession. Is this why you spent almost £200m last summer?

34% possession for Utd and Mourinho says we were boring. Who was playing 6 at the back??????

Wow. Absolutely brutal!
It looks like Twitter is in agreement with our punters. A Jose Mourinho special!
The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have told the Man Utd faithful to get used to it…
How can you spend so much and still look so poor?
