The mood here is funny. I thought he was the best player along with Greenwood.

No one can move the ball in our team as good as him. Not even Pogba consistently.

He was very good. Doubt he will sign a new contract if he is not going to see any returns on his performances.

Would happily sell him. One of the most frustrating players I've ever seen. Might even be more frustrating than Nani. His scattergun approach is good for a goal here, and an assist there but simply isn't conducive to quality, team orientated football.

He was very good. Some of his touches and short passes were great.

Shit corners though.

Another good performance, but it’s hard to stand out with the way we’re playing.

Don't insult the user. Your post is an idiot.

MOTM for me, was looking to orchestrate all across the front line, used the ball smartly with no wild stuff, and worked his socks to help our double pivot duds.

Some sublime and some not so much. Great touch and pass for the goal and certainly wasn’t a problem today.

Didn’t really see it today from him, he tried hard and wasn’t bad but also not his finest game.

Nah….he actually reminds me a bit of Rooney (username) in that he can do some unbelievable stuff and then do something really poor….but he’s a great player. We’re worse without him.

He does need to start playing like an actual midfielders when we need though. It's absolutely infuriating to see him and Pogba just camp on the Def line along with Ronaldo and the 2 wingers, all of them just watching Luke Shaw, AWB and McT trying to create. Absolutely clueless and shows how fecked up our setup is.

I miss when he is our goal scorer playing like our false 9 type player.

His role has changed too much this season which is disappointing.

He has to organise everything. Constantly pointing and shouting out instructions. It's good that he's so assertive but it's ridiculous that he has to do it so much. The other players should know their fecking roles.

Fully agree with this. This is part of why I want to see us really play a 4-3-3 rather than a 4-2-3-1. He’s too often playing in the wrong strata and I don’t know whether that is with instruction or ill discipline. He’s far too advanced.

I don't know why he insists on taking the corners from the right side. I'd much rather Shaw continue taking them or else if they need a right footer, give it to someone like Sancho. The counter is a direct result of his poor corner, followed up by Fred losing two challenges. He's embarrassingly bad at them and I wonder how much control Ole has on him to not let him do whatever the feck he wants on the pitch.

It is weird to blame on the poor corner. I mean the ball can drop in anywhere and still get countered like that.

Shaw's corner taking for United has been pretty bad to be honest. Plus Shaw would be better stay back on his side to deal with any counter which is ironic.

Its not weird to blame when he constantly either fails to beat the first man or over hits it completely. I'd much rather prefer the latter, at least it goes for a goal kick and we can set our defence.

You guys can laugh and all that but holler at me the day he's part of a great attacking unit that puts up great attacking numbers.
How can you look at some of his outrageous first touches and passes yesterday and not think we are lucky to have him? He's literally dragged us single handedly out of mediocrity.

And as a traditional number 10, he obviously will take risks and lose the ball from time to time. That's just how it works.

Played decent but his shocking corner helped start the counter attack, that seemed to be forgotten. Fred yes should have been better but that doesn't absolve Bruno from not being able to beat the first man

Dont think even you can get away with that you buck-tooth genuis

fecking hell can we appreciate anything these days without whining?
There's literally like a hundred posts on this sub to complain let's have at least one not to.
There's no denying that we're atrocious, but can't we just be happy that one of our lads is doing well?

Been hearing people moan Bruno is holding us back as he loses ball to often, well seen as he only one actually trying something it's likely to happen, take him out the team we are even worse, truly baffling how some watch our games and only pick the negative while ignoring positives.
23 chances by himself and we have scored 14 though but he only has 1 assist in the league?! is actually bizzare, which means that was vs Everton two days ago, attackers got start scoring more his providing chances but our stacked team isn't finishing them, bound to improve I hope as season goes on.

He could have 2 more assists from the games against Young boys and West Ham.

He doesn’t really play like a classic number ten but more like a false nine.
he is absolutely fantastic as a false nine but I am not sure about how he fits with Ronaldo in our current team.
Especially when you also have Pogba who is equally far up the pitch. And we have Greenwood who is also very goal focused. It’s like our attack lacks passes, which would explain our horrendous xg.

Bruno is literally the best thing to happen to us since Fergie left and I guarantee you if he was up for sale all the top clubs would be love to have him.

I know we all have a preferences but I just don't understand how you cant enjoy this man play for us.

He was ok, no forward should be held accountable for a goal conceded when they make a mistake on the other end of the pitch, the vitriol against Nani's losing the ball at the corner flag and us losing the game in the League Cup still baffle me to this day.

Really need to start playing like more of a midfielder and less of a forward though, even if that goes against his own stated preference that he wants to take risks.

He literally has the most chances created in the PL this season and he has dropped back deeper into midfield since Ronaldo came in. He is a 10 and a great one at that, he is the only one in our team actually racking up high quality passes/chances.
