Absolutely terrible. He and Matic couldn’t cope with Jonjo Shelvey and Hayden.
Threw up in my mouth reading that, crikey, when was the last time someone made those two look competent?

Coaching staff need to grab him and ban him from shooting. No idea why he fancies himself so much when he's worse than fecking Rojo?

Surely one of the worst passers in the league. It's like holding the square or X button for maximum power regardless of distance or direction to a teammate.

I'm sure there were more but he had 3 of the worst passes you would ever see in that game. First one he passed to Solskjaer on the touchline with no player in sight. Second one he seemingly over hit a ball over the top by about 40 yards and finally he passed another straight out of play with no one around. Add to that yet another off balance shot with his right foot from outside the box which should be a fine every time it happens at this stage

At times he might be using shot button to find teammates.

I love Fred... His right foot shots are genuinely hilarious. You've gotta admire the confidence he has in himself to continue to take them on.

And Solskjær has won it!
He is one of the worst passers I have as a midfielder in a Utd shirt. Can't pass for shit, if it isn't 3-5 yards he will underhit or overhit it. But occasionally it's in the general direction. Would love to have a player who could run about and pass the ball playing for us.

His shooting hurts my eyes, sometimes his passing too.
Ah come on now lads you'll trigger the posting of passing stats with that kind of talk.

Some mental passes tonight but i've seen him play worse.

How many like me can say they were in attendance to see Fred score his three goals for Man United?

What will happen first, full capacity supporters returning to Old Trafford or Fred scoring his 4th goal for United?

Dock him a weeks wages whenever he shoots.
Literally just about to say this. A fine for every time he takes a shot outside the box. His conversion rate must be the worst in the league.

I don't find it particularly admirable to watch a player continue to do the same thing unsuccessfully over and over again. Fred has a lot of endearing qualities, his shooting is not one of them.

I've gone past being annoyed at it to just thinking its funny now... his shooting isn't just terrible, it's like, hilariously bad. Plus he clearly thinks he's incredible at shooting too, which makes it all the funnier.

I wish I could believe I was as good at anything in life like Fred thinks he is at shooting.

Do you think he's got something wrong with his vision because I've never seen a player misplace so many passes so badly.

He actually passed the ball out of play last night and there wasn't a player within about 10 metres of where he passed it too, if it were a long cross field ball I could accept it but this was a low side footed pass.

Last night be one of those games where his passing goes to absolute trash. Not the only one suffering from it but some of them were pretty bad.

Mindboggling that a professional footballer at the highest level has a shoot that almost makes me blush.

I would guess he is currently trying to hard to reach the level he has shown before. Really poor confidence atm. That collision with Maguire was also very odd.

That was on maguire, Fred already had the ball and Maguire charges into him.
