I thought on the ball it was a better performance than usual, a few decent passes.
It sounds to me like that’s what people seem to be looking for, Someone who takes almost no risks and has 90% passing stats in every game. If we get that player Pogba and Bruno will have to come deeper to advance play but it’s like talking to the wall. It’s Fred’s fault we are out of the CL and only in second. Nothing to do with the attack being a mile off when cavani wasn’t availableI only watched the second half but I thought he made some good progressive passes and didn't just go for the easy option.
He’s at fault so many goals. I don’t understand why people harp on about him at all.
Yeah for someone who's basically only job he is supposed to do well is protect the defence he sure costs us a lot of goals.He’s at fault so many goals. I don’t understand why people harp on about him at all.
If Pogba was at fault for anywhere near as many goals Fred has been, especially as of late this forum would go into meltdown.
Didn't he take alot of set pieces at Shaktar? The only players remaining at that stage were James/Shaw/Axel/Lindelof/De Gea. So I wasn't too surprised to see him step up then especially being more senior than the likes of James.Yeah but he was #6 I think, ballsy from Frederick!
In big games like last night Fred has played well more often than he’s played poorly this season. Seeing as McT had his best game of the season I reckon McFred in the starting line-up would have improved us significantly. Our record with/without Fred speaks for itself anyway. Just like our record with Pogba playing deep is also self explanatory.Can't say for sure anything would've been different had he been fit to start, but at least we would've had a game changer on the bench to be able to make subs earlier.
He has his uses, and has generally been a good big game player, but he's not a top tier midfielder. But I think if we sign a midfielder, the likeliest scenario is he stays as the starter next to the new guy, rather then he gets benched which isn't what most people want, but its fine.
Him or somebody next to mct and play that 442 hybrid which has brought the best out of a lot of players.Felt like we missed him.
