Giving Mata a new deal was mad. Dan James would have been a huge improvement on Mata and James hasnt been at it for months.But but juanfield and he's a nice bloke!
They haven't played for months, you have to expect some rustiness.If I was Ole I would have Lingard mata and Dalot's suits on the stadium door step. Shocking display when they should be fecking chomping to put in good performances. These 3 are part of about 8 or 9 that are fecking stealing a living at this club.
There is a reason we are 6th in the table because the likes of lingard mata periera were regulars before Bruno Joined.Our squad depth in the attack is ridiculously bad. Imagine that Lingard and Mata were starters for us at one point ? Glad we at least moved on from such tragic days.
I'd go for that, maybe with Pogba on for McTom.I’d put Williams on at right back, move Dalot up onto the right wing, put Rashford on left, and take Lingard and Mata off.
Considering how many players we have who are keen on inside left, we have no threat from there today.
My biggest concern, this. Although it isn’t that we don’t have depth; we do. The problem is that the discrepancy between our best players and the likes of Lingard is frightening. We need better players to come in for these games.Our squad depth is atrocious. An injury to Bruno/Rashford/Pogba/Martial and we have nothing left to scare anyone.
