Yeah. Honestly, I wouldn't care too much if he was crossing but crossing badly. Its his refusal to even consider putting the ball into the box. He seems to see his role as being a decoy for Greenwood, or to hold the ball until Bruno drifts wide and puts a cross in for him. If he just swung a few balls in, eventually, one or two of them would fall in a dangerous area even if they weren't pinpoint. A defender may make a mistake on one, a goalie may misjudge flight...him being on that right hand side means our opportunity to cause chaos and panic in the area goes down by levels.
Just try Aaron, you might put 10 crap crosses in but the 11th might lead to a second ball situation that sees Cristiano score a tap in.
Not sure why he is getting praise for being competent on the ball, for once.
He was, yet again, found positionally inadequate on crosses and balls in.
What I don't understand is his reluctance to cross the ball. He will pass it side ways to McTominay who will also is reluctant to cross and passes sideways again.
I never see Fred or McTominay ever cross the ball. Does Carrick and McKena not think it's fundamental for them to cross the ball which will give us more dimensions in attack.
I think it's clear why he doesn't cross as much. It's obviously tactical, which I think should be obvious given that it was just a game ago where our manager has said that we're not that type of team as we don't have the players for it?
