Seriously? He was an absolutely horrible, snide player at United. Constantly acting the maggot. It was kind of endearing at the time because you knew it must drive rival fans up the wall but it was always going to become intolerable if/when he ended up playing for another club against us.
True, for sure, I did notice. Just surprised how quickly the feeling turned for me. He felt intolerable yesterday, and didn't even do that much

Good squad player. Could easily play instead of McTom, Fred or Matic. Much smarter than Fred

So you judge players on one match? Anderson was a big game player, doesn’t mean I thought he shouldn’t be replaced. Lindelof somehow contrives to have some good games, doesn’t mean that I think he shouldn’t be upgraded.
jordan Henderson was good for Liverpool in a CL final doesnt mean that I think he’s a good footballer
Anderson was not a big game player. The opposite if anything

Actually you probably meant Ander since its his thread, in that case I obviously agree. Ander had more to his game so its hard to see an argument for why Fred would have a "higher ceiling".

And Solskjær has won it!
He was player of the season in our best season since saf retired
I’m aware he was player of the season in 16/17 but that doesn’t negate my point.

Look I liked Herrera he’s a good player but I just don’t agree he’s a player capable of taking United to another level and putting us into title contention.

He was here for 5 years and never showed the ability to be that level of player. At 30 I doubt he’s ever going to either.

I still like Ander, he is nasty and sly, just what this side misses, however neither him or Fred and good enough ability wise to take us back to the top.
I agree, but Herrera would still be a valuable asset to the team. He's a lot better than Donny, Fred and McTominay, more reliable than Matic, and always brought the best out of Pogba when playing together.

He was better defensively than all of those midfielders, was reliable in possession, was one of the best big game players we've had post Fergie, etc. Our midfield still needed strengthening with him and a younger Matic, but we actually downgraded by adding Fred, McTominay and Donny. Incredibly silly from us.

I'm okay without my midfielder diving about everywhere to influence the sport when he can hardly pass, defend or attack to influence from centre midfield instead.

The sport has progressed too much in the last few years to have just one or two clubs fighting for a trophy with a midget like Herrera trying to influence red cards rather than influencing the football directly by goals in and out whilst influencing points and growth as a whole team.
