The guy is so attacking minded it can occasionally hurt him. Even the simple passes to the wings were so close to being howlers. But he plays them so far in front of the man that if he gets it right it speeds up play and creates huge chances. As mentioned he does not seem to be able to dial it back a notch. Sometimes we need to retain the ball not go for the home run.His lowest level reminds me of Rooney on his pub player-mode days. Can't even make the simplest of passes, just mistake after mistake.
Yeah by definition he will be streaky I think. But he has:For all the people saying he's been poor. Fair enough. But he takes risks. The rewards of such a player are that he gets goals and assists. You take that away from him and we have a safety-first player with a fraction of the goals and assists that he has.
I'm happy for him to make some misplaced passes if it means that he gets a goal or assist every game.
Seeing that he got an ”assist” for that Martial goal keeps reminding me why i dont pay attention to assist stats. To much stats focusing nowadays.Off day yesterday but maybe due to him overplaying. Still got an assist for the Martial goal. Shows how far he's raised the bar.
You must hate tap-in goals too then. Relax , not all excellent on the plate assist gets converted so these things even out over the course of season.Seeing that he got an ”assist” for that Martial goal keeps reminding me why i dont pay attention to assist stats. To much stats focusing nowadays.
Or you can have Lingard and Perreira who will play the safe pass and we won't create anything.So many people saying he was poor yesterday... Fair enough, but he still managed to make one assist. It’s actually not that dreadful to make one assist even on your bad days.
That’s nonsense to be fair (in my humble opinion). Bruno was poor. He got an ‘assist’, which just shows the nonsense emphasis on stats in today’s game. A footballer should not get an assist without creating a goalscoring chance In my opinion. Getting an assist for a solo goal is ridiculous.I don't get the bad game thing, he did fine. Pogba had a bad game, Wan Bissaka had a bad game, Fernandes was fine.
https://www.manutd.com/en/news/deta...and-more-pre-match-stats-for-palace-v-man-utdBruno Fernandes has scored five goals in his last four Premier League away games, with his brace at Brighton & Hove Albion sandwiched between efforts against Everton, Tottenham and Aston Villa.
If he nets at Selhurst Park, he’ll be the first United player to score in five straight away games in the competition since Zlatan Ibrahimovic in January 2017, and the fourth to do so overall for the Reds, after Dutch strikers Ruud van Nistelrooy (twice) and Robin van Persie.
Please don't talk about Lingard in reference to Bruno, it's demeaning to yourself.That’s nonsense to be fair (in my humble opinion). Bruno was poor. He got an ‘assist’, which just shows the nonsense emphasis on stats in today’s game. A footballer should not get an assist without creating a goalscoring chance In my opinion. Getting an assist for a solo goal is ridiculous.
Obviously no need to throw the player away, but there is some serious hypocrisy with regards to other players if that performance was considered ‘fine’. If Lingard had turned that in, he would rightly be criticised. He needs to do better, and will do better.
Yeah Bruno and Pogba together can either be the best partnership you can wish for else if they both have "one of those days", it's tear your hair out stuff.Hoddle naming him BT's MOTM just shows what an awful pundit he is
As for Bruno he was better when he cut out the rashness in his play, sometimes you need to keep it simple when you're under the cosh rather than trying the spectacular (that goes for Pogba as well)
Yeah he's a bit like prime Sanchez - he won't hold onto the ball like Xavi or Scholes, but he will create an awful lot of chances. Just look at our goals per game ratio before and after his signing. Plus his work rate off the ball is sensational.I don't mind him losing possession. He is that type of player. Played role in both goals, should have scored too. Took good set pieces. As usual he works his socks off.
Hope Woody kept the receipts. Looking like a shadow of his former self for awhile now
He won the ball with a great tackle a second before the quick pass. I don't think it was as big a deal as you make it out to be here. Lets not get the pitchforks out like he did something similar to Pogba vs Southampton.Bruno's dogshit rushed desperate pass caused the Palace goal, it was an awful bit of judgement from him. Luckily VAR saved him/us.
