Ha I know I'm splitting hairs sorry, if all pieces were queens then F2 to F7 would result in checkmate in one go, assuming they were white and going firstHehe that's fair play and without turning this to a game of chess - going for a one move check mate every game isn't going to work & May do more harm than good.
Lingard has maybe only done less than average to fans; but what we as fans want isn't necessarily what the manager wants on the pitch once the whistle blows.
Furthermore to me, the way he works on the pitch, I can only fathom to say that he tries hard to improve his game off it too. Considering he has had a late upbringing; I reckon he could atleast be a good squad player in a couple of years..
Since he is homegrown; this can only provide benefit and guidance to others too. Either way, the decision to pick him so much is Lingard'fault - it's the managers and it should be treated like that by the fans.
I see your point tho, I think that's more down to the character of the players tho, there are countless examples of teams with stars performing well together. The grafters tend to play in central positions where as wingers that are only good at defending should either be sold or do a Valencia and play full back
I'm not blaming lingard for getting picked I'm blaming him for his own poor performances that severely hinder our attacking potential.
