Maybe we will try that over the season. It's never been great either from what I recall.I'd give Pogba McT a run of games together. Especially when Rashford is back.
I don't think any of our pairs have been a success. Including McFred
Anyway you can't play Fred every week if he is playing how he is so far
The alternative is Pogba in midfield which always gets overrun. Mcfred is the better option. You mentioned Kante for France but even then they had Matuidi in there too. Kante and Pogba in a 2 got overrun against Switzerland in the euros.Rice and Soucek are going to bury McFred into the ground, in the midfield. We are going to get overrun there, putting huge pressure on our defense and leaving our attackers disconnected.
We may still survive in this game, because they don't have good enough attackers and somebody on our side may pull a miracle, but if anybody really thinks that we are winning EPL or UCL with fecking McFred as our midfield - wow, I admire your optimism.
But your first sentence could be applied to McFred I feel they do nothing to warrant starting and it’s been that way for 18 months.Sancho has done nothing to warrant him starting today .
Playing McFred allows Pogba to be further forward and influence the game a lot more.
