Maybe Matic 45 and Donny comes after the break. Let's hope so. Otherwise why the hussle and this quotes and stuff? Let him show himself.

Pathetic. Ruining the career of one a promising young player. If we don’t need him then fecking get rid, why are we wasting his time and our money?

I think VDB will come off the bench and play a chunk of minutes at least.

It was today for him, seriously can't understand why he's not getting a single chance.

Can't blame him if he presents a transfer request at this point, it's getting ridiculous playing Matic ahead of him specially considering Matic's performance against Southampton.

Well, if he can't get a start against fecking Newcastle he's not getting one.

All the talk about him playing a larger role seems to be coming out of everyone's arses.

Matic getting another go over him. My word.

This. Matic cant play 2 matches in a row.
Matic can’t play one match in a row. His legs have gone and he’s a total liability. Disturbing that the coaching staff doesn’t see this. Hopefully it doesn’t cost us points today.

DvB might as well resign himself to cup duty. Really poor from OGS.

Ole says that all the time, just to keep players. He likes to have as many as possible, even if they only play 5 games a season.

Which is what he doesn't want, his agent made that pretty clear.

I remember when we signed him and people laughed when I said he'd be our worst midfielder and bottom of the pecking order as even McTominay, Fred, Lingard offer more.

Yes, he's that rubbish.

Can't believe a player who's offered us absolutely nothing hasn't started.
I think most people's arguments is that we want to see him getting the chance to offer us something, not some minutes here and there, but some actual consistent starts, and with both Fred and McTominay out, who btw have offered very little themselves particularly Fred who is awful, genuinely what is the point? If we actually start him properly and let him get some matches under his belt, not a few minute sub appearences which he isn't even getting, gladly get rid if he isn't good enough, but even that isn't happening. Why didn't we sell him to recoup some money and invest in a midfielder that we'll actually play

He's had minutes and produced very, very little. I think he's practically useless for us.

We'll sell in Jan. We kept him just incase we have a bizarre injury crisis.

Totally agree. Ole is taking the piss now. Not sure what DVB has done. To those saying he has offered nothing when has been been given a chance? I don't mean a few minutes here and there in a month, but a few games on the trot.

We could have easily sold him this summer because there were many teams interested and reinvested that money into another midfielder, it makes no sense to keep him until January where his value will decrease even further cause he won't play at all and we probably won't invest that till next summer now.

I doubt we would ever play a midfield of Pogba & VDB. Neither of them can win the ball. It has to be in place of Pogba's position in the midfield. But since the places in attacking line up are really crowded now, he can only do it by dropping Pogba on the bench. I can only see him getting 30 minutes or backup role at best. Not sure what chat Ole has had with him and how he has been promised more starts. We won't drop Pogba or Bruno for him (unless Pogba stinks up the place in a midfield two).

This is going to be a long old season if everyone loses their shit when Donny doesn't get played.

He's not a 6, so why do we think he will replace matic?

He IS being touted as a 6 but I imagine that's more like Paul Scholes kind of 6 who always paired with someone like Carrick, Fletcher etc. So you are right he won't replace Matic, he can play with Matic/Mctominay/Fred.

You also said we should sign Minamino or Hwang over Haaland.

Donny isn't a CDM or a defensive midfielder so how was he going to start over Pogs or Bruno??

He'll play against Young Boys. He is not good enough to displace Pogba or Bruno.
Amazingly this escapes people.

Because he's supposedly tidy in possession..or something.
I think there seems to be some illusion going on between what people want to see in Beek and what they're actually seeing, which isn't a great deal when he does feature/ come on.

Why do so many want Cleverley mk2 to start????
For fecks sake, I don't know why this has to be repeated on every page. People want him to either be given a chance, or sold. Not kept in this state of purgatory that benefits nobody (not the player, nor the club).

Who in gods name do you think DVB displaces in that lineup?

He's not good enough to be a starter right now.

Find the outrage at the lack of game time for him odd. He's clearly not shown anything in his limited starts (and probably in training) to suggest he should be starting yet apparently we should give him a game. Also find the 'yes he's not been very good but we should give him a run of games to prove himself' argument a little strange. If he gets a chance he needs to take it when it comes. United aren't there at his service to enhance his career, it's up to him to prove he's worth it.

Donny is a squad player currently. Its up to him to take his chance when he comes of the bench. He's not done anything to start a match yet.
