    So why didn't Fred even make the bench at the weekend? Do we know yet? If it's not injury or personal issues it does not look good at all for him.

    We bought him because Pep wanted him as back-up for Fernandinho, but Fred wanted to come to us. So we had the first option. I suppose Jose thought he would be a decent back-up or partner for Matic. We have since learned that Herrera was the man all along. Fred will get his chance, but we can chalk this one off as first season syndrome. He will improve and have an impact next season.

    Based on the fact that we had to go the extra mile with his wages, but we didn’t do so for Perisic? How was every other Jose signing shite? Clearly that’s false.

    Unless you are Ole in disguise, not sure you know anymore that what I do. I can only go off what he said unlike you who is going off what he didnt. Its funny how some players are dropped but others are rested. Not saying Fred is the answer but what we seen from Lindeloff, circumstances can change.

    How's Fred rested ? :lol:. Mourinho gave Lindelof chances , Ole didn't even bother with Fred. He is really baby faced assassin. On public he always said things people want to hear but behind , he actually didn't mind winning ugly , didn't mind shutting the door to defend lead and didn't mind dropping players when they failed to perform. It's funny how you can be so naive to not see the reality. I am 100% ole in because he did what i would too if i was a manager. Praising your fave players on public when i don't even rate them. We are going to face psg , Chelsea , Liverpool and crystal palace this February , all harder than Fulham , no chance for Fred to start except we get an injury or suspension.

    Definitely not for Matic. May be for Herrera but he needs to adapt his game. He makes too many touches.

    This thread, very existence of this thread is vindication of bizarre transfers the club has done in past few years.

    I'm sorry but it's glaringly obvious by now that Ole doesn't rate Fred. The fact he has used both Pereira and McTominay (who are both not good enough) over Fred speaks volumes.

    Doubt he will make it here. Awful transfer decision yet again.

    Another 'let's gazump City' transfer blows up in our faces. I swear that City generate fake interest in players just so Woodward will immediately go and buy them while Guardiola does his best Muttley impression.
