I'm worried about this. We need to find an opportunity to rest him or he's going to burn out. Do we think there's any possibility of at least not starting him for one of the three league games against Leicester, Wolves, or Villa?
He should be sent back to Portugal on vacation the moment Leicester game is over and shouldn’t report back until two days before Villa. We should be able to handle Wolves without Bruno.

After a hattrick of goals and assists.
Then he's never had a special game? If my memory serves me well at least...he's not scored a hat-trick nor gotten a hat-trick of assists yet.

Not the best of matches for him, but he still managed a few key passes which could have resulted in goals, and hit the woodwork himself

Think he means combined, which he got against Leeds.

I liked at one point he screwed up a pass to Pogba and Pogba I think was complaining he was fouled however Bruno instead of reminstrating sprints past Pogba and tries to rectify his mistake by getting back to influence the impending Everton counter.

Bugs the life out of me when players stop playing or trying to get at something or someone for innocuous little fouls. Play to the whistle.

I though that at first but then it was obvious he achieved that against Leeds so gave him the benefit of the doubt by reading the other meaning.
Oh, yeah, that'll teach me not to read back the whole conversation :lol:

I meant due to his productivity, it's another day in the office for him when he scores a couple and grabs an assist.

It's a bit of hyperbole after getting used to his productivity in the last 12 months.

He was resting in this game. He does this for us every once in a while because we can’t afford to actually rest him. Still managed to get Matic riled up so him being on the field was completely justified.

Iconic leader that will be the reason we win many trophies.

What kinda message does that send to the rest though ? Things are improving on many aspects, resting players is needed but Bruno further in the step you mentioned, might create issues we don't need
When the rest of our squad averages the kinds of numbers he averages then we will discuss those issues. Besides, I dont mean a word of anything I said haha

Image where we'd be in the table without Bruno.
Along with Arsenal no doubt, he is single handedly pushing the team upward. No other PL side (maybe Aston Villa) is as dependent on one player as we are.

Doesn't play all that well but still gets a goal and an assist. What a ridiculously good signing we've made.

People might complain about his general play but he still bangs it on when it matters. Also liked his urgency after the equalizer. A real winner and true leader.

Should have had a second assist as well. Partly at fault for their first.

Hes just all action. We'd be lost without him

Bad error but he’s got plenty of money in the bank to be excused for that. He’s easily our best and most consistent player overall. He’s arguably the best player in the league.

He was too cute at moments which contributed to costing us a goal.

Regardless, he did his job. His assist and goal should've been enough to win us the game.

He is seriously the only midfielder we have (bar perhaps Matic) that has a football IQ with triple digits.

He might even be the only regular starter with an IQ like that, but I think Rashford is quite intelligent at football.

Superb today. The failed nutmeg led to a goal, but in fairness to Bruno there was still a lot of work to do after the dispossession.

Imagine Pogba losing the ball in that area. Got himself 1G1A but an overall average performance.

Best player in the league for me. His output is simply incredible. And his importance to the team unparalleled.

Let's not pretend they're even at the same level of productivity.

Another ridiculous statement from yet another #pogbacker who prioritizes the Pog over MUFC. Once your employer shits off to Madrid or PSG or Juventus, we hope to never see you here again.

One injury to him and we will be scrapping for 6th place.

The prospect is terrifying.
