I think Casemiro has been a reason why we've improved recently but he commits to challenges way to often he has no chance of getting to. The amount of time he goes to ground and doesn't win the ball or take the player out is hurting us in these transitions. Feels he just over commits and as he's the deepest midfielder we're cut wide open.

It's probably because he doesn't have the physicality to keep up but going to ground and not make a foul or winning the ball needs to be cut out.
What is most surprising is his lack of footballing iq. He had a good spell last season for a few months were he looked sharp and on point, but he has been all over the place for a long time.

It's United's luck that most of their experienced players lack discipline and composure.

Casemiro, Bruno, and Rashford should be the calm heads of the team but they're some of the biggest reasons for United's chaotic football.

He was bad, but Utd were even more of a mess when he was subbed.

Ten Hag has killed his midfield players this season, should be sacked for that alone.

So, all in all, since he's signed he's probably shown about a months worth of very good football.

I keep telling people, he is the worst most decorated midfielder from techniques point of view. The biggest problem though is that his legs are gone

This guy was doing backheels in midfield and gifting Fulham the ball. The way him and Bruno are reckless with the ball shows disrespect for the team and fans

Legs aren't able for pace of the Premier league. Players know knock it past him and its either a card or free run at a weak backline. Any midfield with energy against utd has a field day. Hopefully we can move him on and add someone with energy and bite. And hopefully someone younger too that has desire to develop. The 30year old big signings need to stop and focus on younger core. We are years away from city etc so should bother with short term signings. Hopefully we have finally learnt our lesson. Midfield is so unbalanced it's crazy. Anyone of them could be sold and have no complaints bar kobbie and maybe bruno. Eriksen, casemiro, Scott all could be moved on. Missing Mount poor signing considering what was needed. Big summer ahead,hopefully there is some proper plans in place.

He looks like he's lost a bit of pace this season. He's been far less effective and impactful since he's come back from injury. Also doesn't looked bothered/interested. Shame really as I thought he was brilliant last season.

He was having a good game before his sub apart from the one time he tried a backheel in midfield.

He played a great ball to Bruno who failed to control it, that should've been a goal as it was 2 on 1 with the goal.

He scored the winning goal but it’s so easy to beat him one v one. Some people blamed it on set up, but honestly today is clear not because of the set up. The way how he let players just went past him easily is concerning. It’s almost like he’s reluctant to put a challenge. His ability to win the ball back one v one has gone. We should have invest the money on Rice instead of Casemiro in 2022. I think we need someone like Rice not Casemiro.

Almost like the defensive midfield version of early Utd Bruno at times.

Wild and clutch moments all in one. Although it looks like the same trajectory, let's hope he doesn't end up as our deepest midfielder and Bruno of today, sigh.

His ability to anticipate the flight of the ball and win headers though - it's bonkers!

There's no doubt that this version of Casemiro is a flawed DM who we should be looking to urgently replace in the next transfer window. However I still love the guy's passion, winning mentality and willingness to get his head on an attacking set pieces. I really hope we end this season with an FA Cup win and he can bow out from European football on a high.

I have a feeling that Casemiro stills try to find out what position he is playing, what we want from him and what areas to cover.

Casemiro has not "lost his legs", he never had any much better then what see right now - the problem is that Casemiro is not player for 4-2-3-1 but instead ideal in 4-3-3 where he had 2 of the best CMs in the world in Kroos and Modric taking turns in who is the one dropping to take the ball from Casemiro, carry it forward or pass the ball to the final third and the other one would always make a run to cover the position were the dropping one started from just to disorient the defense and stretch out the midfield so the one that dropped gets a more open field to either carry the ball 20-30m or just slide a pass through the middle.

Casemiro a is decent passer, but mainly for functional football and not for Tika Taka football. He is not a playmaker, he is not box-to-box, he is not a CM - he is (and should be played like one if we are keeping one) low sitting CDM who is there to be the ball magnet winning duels both on the ground and in the air, make the area in front of our CBs and behind our 2 CMs in a 4-3-3 formation. He should also have the feeling when to slow down the pace of the game and when to play it faster, because the CDM is often the start of counter attacks.

But we dont have the players for a 4-3-3 and Casemiro is not longer the player we should be adapting or shaping our team after, was more an input in how I felt when he arrived and how I still see it.
His period was last year when he was playing as CM with his partner being the one often staying to cover up when he went on a goal streak haha.

Another big name that we had such high expectations that will not really give us what we expected and pay for.

I think we're definitely more solid with him in the team overall, but he is getting ghosted past far too often. I mean the fact a lot of our players really struggle with keeping the ball doesn't exactly help him.

There's an argument that he's definitely worth keeping for another year, on the proviso that he doesn't play every week.

He's the perfect player for a younger player to learn from before eventually replacing in the long term.

Don't think he's the type of player you learn from, his game is based on desire, willingness to win the ball and work rate rather than just positional discipline. These things can't really be taught.

For one of the highest paid players at the club, that's a terrible stance. Get him out, get a fee for him from Saudi, and bring in someone more long term who stylistically compliments Mainoo. I know our results haven't been too bad of late bar Fulham, but our performances have been poor. Players are basically just running at our mid knowing we lack pace in there and players who can track back. Forest did it blatantly in the first half.

First half he was doing really well defensively with a lot more discipline. As soon as it started to get a little more stretched he was an immediate problem, needs to go at the end of the season, only going to become a bigger problem from here.

Thought he played well in the first, but he inevitably ran out of steam as the game progressed. This is where we needed a better option off the bench to rotate in with him.

Played well defensively but on the ball he is so far away from the quality needed to compete against the top teams in this league. Its light and day watching him and then Rodri on the ball. We cannot carry these technically basic players next season. Hopefully a Saudi club can come in for him.

He's not a bad player but his physically declining fast. We'll have an Eriksen's situation in a year or two. The time to sell is in the summer, he's a big name so probably the Arabs will be interested.

Well if that pass was to Mainoo.. he wouldn't have passed it back to Halland ..
We lack technical players..
It was a poor pass regardless of recipient. Whether Amrabat made the costly mistake or not doesn't change it being a poor pass.
