Joao and Ruben were doing their job, we had Fred and Pogba too what were they doing?

So Bruno has to help them combat Joao and Ruben....

Abeg make them end this world sad
Fred was on Adama in most occasions leaving Pogba alone.

Looks like he's a forward now. If that's the case, he's doing well. But we need midfielders that will keep the ball and create quality chances abeg

Why can’t Fred do that?

We will keep pointing at players anytime we face teams with better managers.

I have decided not to pick blame any player anymore except for obvious individual errors. But our overall play? Na, you can’t build something on nothing. I’d take Potter over Ole.

It’s just so painful because ole will be the end of many talents.

Man city: Rodri (DM) had the highest number of passes last season.

Chelsea: Jorginho (DM) had the highest number of passes last season.

Should we check for Man utd?

That last goal line block was by AWB not Pogba. And that was a different incident in the 6th minute in which he miscued a simple interception to Trincao before he started rolling on the floor picking grass like someone that took Ebuka.cute up on his jazz bet.

Lol. This incident was the one that shocked me, handing opponents possession is typical fred so i took it as one of those days. But this time, Wolves cleared the ball from defence under pressure the ball want directly to fred in our own half, he had almost half of the pitch all to himself, he controlled the ball right into the path of Trincao who was very far away. Varane stood surprised he must be wondering how Fred is even a footballer

Re: Official Manchester United Fan Thread:''20 Times EPL Champion by KingAlabi: 9:37am On Aug 30
A DM won't solve our problems unfortunately, rather he will suffer

This is our formation attacking

...........RW.........CF..............LW.........
LB..........................SS/AM............RB
.........CM...............................CM.......
................CB.................CB................

The CM usually drop to cover our bombing RB/LB when under a counter threat.

A sole DM won't solve the problem, but will be better than Fred or tominay in that role.

The issue is pogba can't play that pivot, he doesn't track back to cover for any bombing full back when under a counter, in that match Fred was cover for Shaw and Pogba for bissaka, they changed sometimes.
But I only saw Fred on trincao and Adama, although he was glided past like he didn't exist, but Pogba was just non-chalant.

Although I agree Bruno joins the CF way too much, but that is the tactics from the coach, Bruno can score goals, why not allow him?
He usually interchanges with the CF in the game, but Bruno isn't a stingy player, if he sees you free to score he would give you the ball.

What we need is a player that can play that pivot better than either MCfred, hence we were linked to more of CMs than DM, and pogba needs to accept his defensive duties or just be played in the RW till rashford returns.

No be only Varane that touch shock... I was left flabbergasted, my man brought pressure on the team out of nothing, instead of covering and pushing Trincao out to the wing, baba decided to chase and tackle Trincao and ended up chopping grass. Thank God he didn't trip Trincao in the penalty box.

Ole believes if he told Bruno his high risk high reward style isn’t always how to play, he would lose his creativity which is not true. He just wants Bruno to score for him, that’s all he knows. Bruno would be a deadlier weapon in the hands of a better manager. He can always drop deep and dictate play if he’s instructed to. He has work rate of a horse.

Amaka has shown that he struggles with team selections when he has too many options, and this must be the reason why he likes running his 1st 11 into the ground.

Hopefully that performance will open their eyes and they can get a DM before the window closes.

Thunder will faya him if he doesn't find a way to rotate and keep this squad fresh.

The useless club should for once do what others are doing and sign a damn DM. angry

Uhm how does passing equate to being bullied? I specifically addressed one thing which was passing. Fred was accused of being bullied, I agreed. Fred was accused of not being able to make passed, I countered.

But you were also talking about Bruno not dropping into midfield etc.

I addressed all your points in a single post.

Yet these same midfielders are in top 3-4 of total passes and successful passes. If they were doing giveaway with this stats, it means Bruno was sleeping then for him to have it worse

We will bench Bruno for 6 games starting from next month. He's mediocre. cool

I mentioned this yesterday. Just like when we wanted Sancho in. I said its like we are praying for Sancho to be bought so that when the play rubbish, the poor boy will hopefully do some magic to secure some or all points. Lets stop playing rubbish first

Only Fred was on Trincao and Adama and the other CMs. Make them kill am na

That was because Adama, Trincao and co were dropping into the midfield. Would it hurt for him to drop in, deprive Wolves of the ball,make them run around and finally retreat? Is that not what happened at the end?
