@Crackers pop your tent up in here and get comfortable.
I think us muppets need a winter break too,
Yeah but I claim this patch.
Well done. A lot of work to be done in this sector.
This guy is ideal in more ways than one for United.
First off, he is an outstanding player that is very attainable for United. I'm convinced he could dovetail well with Pogba, and even fill in for him alongside a conventional 8 if/when Pogba is missing.
No midfielder on the market is more talented than he. Make it happen Jose!
With Sanchez coming in now, a transfer like this makes a lot of sense for me. We need to start controlling games better and adding a good midfielder would be needed
Oh this is who people mean. I kept seeing people say we should buy Savic and I thought they meant the Atletico defender who used to play for City.
Can anyone point me in the direction of any news that links us with Savic recently? I'm a lost muppet currently
Setting up camp.
The last I heard of us being linked to him was in December.
Just bought his IF card in FIFA earlier and he's a beast. Sign him up Woody!
Who's better Savic or the lad Bayern just got?
Different types of midfielders by the looks of it.
Milinkovic-Savic is much better going forward and in the air whilst Gortezka is much better at his defnsive duties.
How has SMS got a negative defensive score?
I'd rather we sign one and promote youth. I'd like to see TFM back in mid and see how he gets on.
That's what I was thinking too...
TFM at RB and Andreas back in CM. I'd be happy with that.
Tbf, he's looked good for me in both position. Completely forgot about Andreas, good shout.
I have not watched Lazio at all this season. Is this guy really good or he is a bit overhyped at the moment?
Agreed - although I think we could still find space for another squad member with the number that look likely to leave. I quite like the idea of Fabinho as he covers both positions but SMS does seem like a strong option too!
City may move for him as their Yaya Toure replacement according to MEN.
There will be hell to pay if we let them sign him.
So a spot on the bench then?
He's really good but also really similar to Pogba, down to a certain lack of consistency within games
Except Savic is already miles ahead of Perreira.
The few games I've seen him he plays in the exact same zone as Pogba as an attack-minded LCM. Really good player, but poor fit.
Savic signed and Andreas recalled.
Vidal stats are comfortably superior to them both, and he is having a "relatively" slow season.
Probably because he switches off positionally a lot more than Pogba does and doesn't have Pogba's pressing ability as he's not as mobile, essentially he'd put Pogba in the same spot he's in now, having to play deeper, for that we might as well just get a proper #10 in Ozil for free and be done with it.
He's only played 4 games this season according to Squawka....
you have to select bundesliga...
Are we even linked to him? I'm surprised we have 600 over posts for him here
Because of Sanchez City will be posting stories like this for months.
I'm so not in favor of having Pogba playing in a midfield 2. We all want to see the Pogba of Juve dominating teams and taking shots and scoring goals. He needs to be handled in a similar manner as what Scholesy was. Scholes in his early years played higher up and then as he got older, he receded in midfield.
We need to play a 4-3-3.... We need a #8/6 hybrid to compliment Pogba.... Can Pogb, Savic and Matic play together effectively without stiflling Pogba and Savic's attacking ability?
Ahh i see the other two auto selected their league but Vidal did not, awkward sod.
Best case scenario
I really think we have enough strength and height in midfield. When we play teams that move the ball quickly our midfield is too slow and we get overrun.
Savic looks a good player to me, but is very similar to Pogba. We obviously lack quick feet and mobility, and I would therefore argue that Seri is the better fit for our midfield. We can`t play with three long limbed machomen in midfield.
I mean, I think we could do with more of these attributes, but to use Pogba as an example of someone lacking quick feet and mobility couldn't be more wrong. In fact, I struggle to think of a quicker-footed or more mobile central midfielder. Do you think this just because he is also tall and strong?
According to this, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic covers 11km per game on average. I think this idea that he isn't mobile could well be a myth.
When I watch him play, he is basically like the less hard working of Pogba with less passing ability of central midfield. He has flair, can dribble, has power, long range shooting, his main service threats are for final third basically more of attacking mind midfielder. He looks a quality player, has potential to be world class attacking midfielder but I don't know if we actually need him. He's a bit similar to Hamsik more than Pogba IMO.
Thought he was nothing like Hamsik but I only saw highlights so will say no more.
