Mitrovic went from 3 premier league goals to 43 in the championship the very next season. Yes he has started with 2 in 2 this year so we shall see. Solanke scored 30 goals in the championship.With all due respect, both of you are overrating McT and underrating the championship, in my opinion
McT has played over a hundred games for United and he’s “average as feck” in at least 80% of his games. He has one world class game against Leeds each season. Honestly, I thought Scott would be one of the players who would respond best to ETH’s coaching and look like a new player, but pre-season and these first two games have shown otherwise, unfortunately. He can’t even control a feckin ball, let alone pass it properly. We’ve seen him at his best(aforementioned Leeds games), but we mostly see him at his worse or near it.
Moreover, Garner is probably the only midfielder we have left who can play the holding role or the deepest midfield role. Hannibal (who has since been allowed to go on loan) can also replace McT’s minutes. Let McT go, we blood two youngsters who, on paper, can probably reach a higher level than McT, they can split his 2000+ minutes. Savage and Iqbal can get some in the cups as well.
TEAM of the season midfielders include: Ryan Yates, Phillip Billing, Oliver Skipp,
Jared Bowen from the age of 21 averaged 17 league goals per season. came into the premier league scored 1 in his first season (although only 13 games) then 8 in his second season. McTominay playing more advanced is going for 25
