    How is he playing? Don't seem to recall anything special in last year, but then I don't follow that team much.

    Anyone think this is a coincidence when you got that story recently of them lot saying they should have sold him? :) Maybe we have bought him. Lazio would never openly say it. I think we probably will be looking for another winger so I guess he would be a possibility. He's still young and people are very quick to rubbish players. It's not his fault the transfer markets been ruined by plastic clubs with their ego driven owners..

    Watched him four times now and he is not a very good player. Need to stay away from him as he is worse than Nani.

    The commentator and Stewart Robson on BT don't rate him that highly.

    Exactly. A nothing player, loses the ball as much as Di Maria in crap form if not more and doesn't even have half the creativity of the argentinian to make up for it.

    Does he normally play as he played against us? If so, we should go in for him, he is what we need on our RW.

    He was absolutely brilliant a few months earlier. He isn't the most consistent player yet though.

    He is 25, in the Brazilian national team, and with premier league experience. I hope he raised some eyebrows today. I would much rather we went for someone like him instead of the big name signings.

    I thought he had a pretty quiet game if I'm honest, goal aside.

    Good player, helped West Ham keep the ball and get on the front foot. Also played on the right at times showing he could be an option there

    Cheeky £40m bid? Or £45m + Lingard?

    Would walk right into our side. He's a fantastic player. I've always rated him.

    Like I said in the match thread, both him and Lanzini are levels above our players that were playing in the same positions today; Mata and Lingard.

    It kinda shows how far off we are from having a decent squad when these are the kinds of players we're relying upon to carry us to a top 4 spot.

    No, put him in our team, and Lukaku, Rashford, Martial, heck even Lingard in West Ham's, and we'd be saying he's crap, and we should buy one of them instead, we need to fix the issues we have with the players we have, not just constantly replace them and hope for the best.

    I don’t think he’s anything special. We should be looking for considerably better.

    I dont think he is an United type of player. He looks desinterested majority of time like Martial. But two things you need to know before posting those stats:
    1- His pass completion are not due to bad sideway passes but attempts to create actual chances of goal.

    2 - There is no point comparing United stats with players from smaller clubs. Those middle table clubs are not clear favorites in the vast majority of games. Is not like their wingers and strikers are with the ball all the time close to adversary box. Also is not like he has Pogba on his side to put him in 1x1 situations.

    Actually watching the game today with your own eyes you really think those players are better than Felipe Anderson?

    I have only presented stats.
    Do I believe Pogba, Martial & Rashford are better than Felipe Anderson? Yes. Of course.
    Do I believe Felipe Anderson can have a good game in the same game Pogba, Martial and Rashford aren't having a good game? Yes. Of course.

    Do you think Felipe Anderson is a better footballer than Pogba, Martial & Rashford?

    He's been pretty tasty every time I've seen him play. Better than what we've got on the wings anyway. But yes, maybe we can aim higher, if we can attract top talent. CL place will be pretty imperative.

    1 - Look, i'm pretty sure you thought you nailed it dropping stats comparing a winger from a small club with Man United wide strikers and Paul Pogba, but that is not an argument. You sound ike people from non footballer countries. You can't do that. If we will play this game you should compare KDB goals/assists per minute with Martial/Pogba/Rashford and tell me if you will agree with the stats.

    2 - You realize Martial goal/minute in the Premier League is better than Sadio Mane, right? Do you think the stats are right in this case too?

    3 - Pogba is a midfielder. Is Pogba better than Felipe Anderson? Yes, of course. I dont think Anderson can play as midfielder. Can we compare their stats with a straight face? No.

    4 - Is Rashford better than Felipe Anderson as a winger? No, he is not. I would prefer Rashford in my team? Yes. He is younger and can be a top 9.

    5 - Is Martial better than Felipe Anderson? No, he is not. Put him in a middle table club and he will probably score two goals season.
