Donkey Buggering Tyrant who cheats at Monopoly

I think this line of thinking may not be wrong but just strikes me of when kagawa was taking up 'genius' positions and we just weren't on the same wavelength etc. Lingards movement here was great , players weren't picking him out, his thread wasn't people lining up to make excuses. It's up to ole, coaches , players but mostly up to Donny to improve his performances for UnitedTo be fair to him it did look like when he first came on he was playing as the number 9 so not surprising he didn’t get that many touches. Cavani didn’t get that many either when he was on. It is wil to think in 15 minutes of football he didn’t touch the ball. Watching him his movement was really good and he popped up in lots of little spaces so I’m now wondering if I should be lamenting the others around him that they never found him.
It does seem to be a bit of a continuing theme. If you just watch him his movement is brilliant but doesn’t seem to get given the ball by his team mates.
I did think his movement was really good the other day but not even a touch is just crazy.
I’m fairly convinced there is a player there but don’t see where he fits in our squad at all Or where he is likely to get game time. Either has to oust Rashford, Bruno or Pogba and I just don’t see that happening.
Because clubs thought that was too much for a player in a team who had just avoided relegation in the covid era market, which it wasn't. It would've been a steal for whoever bought him. Now, they'll need to cough up a lot more and, imo, he'd still be worth it.If he was available for that price why did nobody buy him?
Maybe that is what we want when we have Bruno on the pitch? I'd like to see then play together more, ideally both sitting a little deeper than they currently do.Donny is the type of player who takes care of the ball. He will never give his teammate a hospital ball, but will try his best to provide a nicely weighted pass as much as possible. This is part of his training. But it also makes him come across as risk averse. He needs time to change and he will come good.
Me too! He is probably more of a Mata replacement rather than a Bruno stand-in. If the game is tight and movement in small spaces is needed. He is your guy. If you are looking to lead the counter-attack, he doesn't have the speed to be that attacker. However, he can be the one involved in the build up.Maybe that is what we want when we have Bruno on the pitch? I'd like to see then play together more, ideally both sitting a little deeper than they currently do.
Honestly, at some point he should play few more minutes this season, as he has tons of energy conserved, would definitely help us at pressing, even though he lacks match rhythm.Hopefully the summer break and pre-season will spark something, cuz there isn't much sign of life atm.
Or unfortunately both.He couldn’t have done much less than the lads tonight? Even I’m starting to wonder about this deal now. Everyone else looks wrecked and we look shite either way. VDB is fresh... maybe use him instead of running Bruno into the ground every match! At this point it’s either a poor signing or poor management.
I have to say, I've recently started to pick up on how good his movement in and around the box can be. Seems to just lack confidence at the minute, hopefully gets more game time in the run in and next season. Still have hope for him.Wonder how many times he had made a run into the box but noone even looks at him.. its very strange the others arent instructed to do that.
Why would you assume everything a player does in a match is instructed? What manager would ever tell his players not to pass to another team mate who is making good runs? Maybe the player hasn't got the vision or awareness, or the runs aren't actually that good, or foils for other players runs.Wonder how many times he had made a run into the box but noone even looks at him.. its very strange the others arent instructed to do that.
