So were Vidic and Evra this far into their United careers. They now both sit in the argument for our best ever players in their respective positions.I was critical of De Gea earlier in the season with his refusal to collect any cross that was played into the 6-yard box - as he should at the very least be commanding that area.
Since Rangnick came in, I have noticed that De Gea's confidence has grown and he has been performing well.
You only have to check my post history to see that I am critical of Rashford, and also Bruno (when he constantly gives the ball away), though I will be the first to say that Bruno played well today, and he just needs to eradicate the needless yellow cards he picks up.
With regards to judging players after half a season, I honestly believe that I will be saying the same about Sancho after two thirds of the season, at three quarters of the season, and then again at the end of the season.
For the price we paid, he has been a massive disappointment.
You might be proven right in a couple of years, but to call him a dud so soon is just far too reactionary in my book, especially when we've been trying to play him as another Rashford for most of the (half) season so far.
