Got to put those barriers I guess.
I'd love to see him play as the most advanced centre midfielder out of the 3, as a no.8/no.10.
I think he'd do really well under someone like Klopp.
I never thought that I'd one day witness what's happening now at this club. An average 29 year old veteran, who's done nothing for this club, is keeping a young player from the academy out of the team week after week. We should have loaned him if Mourinho didn't have a plan to use him.
He'd do well for any manager that values technical ability. Pep would be over the moon to have a player like him. Sadly, we can't say the same for our manager.
Talk about totally missing the point and being near sighted.
Jose went from telling the whole world he was the best player in pre season till completely banishing him out from the squad in a matter of months. To be fair, Jose did start the season with him but that was only for two and a half games. Something must have happened between them for him to lose complete confidence over the player
One and a half. He was quite good against Leicester, then poor against Brighton and got subbed off at half time (he wasn't really any worse than anybody else that match). In the three months since then he's played a grand total of 35 minutes in appearances off the bench against Young Boys, Wolves and Chelsea.
Pirlo was an exceptional player, one of the all time greats. Saying the lad has the potential to be another Pirlo is just bat crazy imho. Let’s wait and see what level he gets to before making mad claims. At the moment he’s nothing more than an unproven young player with potential
So he did the right thing by going out on loan last season (funny how he got so much shit for that), shame he didn't go this season. Would have helped his development playing than warming bench at ManUtd.
What logic. Pointing out how Pereira got overrun by Brighton? as if nine other outfield players weren't equally as bad, or worse? It's not as if Andreas was the proverbial hole in the unsinkable Titanic. It's not as if any other equally poor players that day received the same exile for it, either.
Every other player that day was poor, and therefore, made Pereira's job practically impossible on that occasion.
This is not Roy of the Rovers, lads. You can't expect an entire team to play badly and then focus criticism on Pereira because he didn't channel Keane in Turin on one occasion.
Our midfield badly lacks creativity and mobility but he still can't get a chance, and he shouldn't be playing as a #6 when we don't have the defensive box to box engine to support him, Sadly I think Mourinho will see Pereira and Bailly off before we get rid of him.
I did, foolish yes, but I thought him going on loan would lessen his chances of making it as a first teamer here. It was more frustration that he wouldn't be able to play for us last season. I was wrong, doesn't stand a chance either way with Mourinho at the helm.
This is where a DoF would have come in handy. Who can actually envisage a player's arc and take decisions accordingly. Even if a DoF would have sold him he'd have fetched few million for us (could have sold him with a buyback option also). Now there is a solid risk we may lose him for no money.
He hid against Brighton. It was poor from somebody supposedly trying to make an impression.
I thought he'd have got another chance by now though. He has the talent.
What type of player do you think this guy is? I've only seen him a couple of times and hes looked impressive. Has a good range of passing as a number 6 but players seem to find it to easy to run off him when he started there. I've watched him play watched him further forward and was very impressed with his touch and weight of pass, seems strange that Jose has just forgotten about him.
He is not a DM. Mourinho was just playing him there.
He's like a Brazillian Jonjo Shelvey.
The Caf have tried to convice the world he's a good player for years but to no avail.
I've thought of an idea to create a Jose's cult thread. Do you want to join?
Another young player the Jose-acolytes will turn on. I can't tell if these people are United fans or they came with Jose. Was awful when they and Jose tried to paint him as a mental midget for going out on loan.
Yeah it went really well for him that loan. Sat on his arse in Valencia for most of it.
He should have been fecked off there and then to be honest. He's nowhere near good enough for Manchester United.
Andreas does not seem to be on good terms with Mourinho tbh.
These Mourinho fans - changing goalposts all the time to cater to the pro-Mourinho propaganda.
I knew I wasn't going crazy - kudos to you @Mcking x
The first post is a fake.
Nah looks legit to me..
You are fun, I must admit.
Don't try that.
Swallow your pride and admit you've made a mistake.
Pereira looks good in pre-season but the moment the real stuff came around he looked shite to be honest.
Seriously - who sent you here?
I thought you told us to get behind the players in the other post?
Nothing wrong with constructuve criticism.
1.5 games, good vs LCFC, terrible alongwith EVERY other player on the pitch against Brighton.
What about your favourite player Matic that's been shite all season but somehow still plays every game?
When it comes to defending Mourinho, common sense and logic are thrown out the window.
Do Mourinho have a son? Maybe CA1 is one of his relative.
