That’s not what I’ve said, I’ve said that McTominay is more consistent and better than Fletcher was at 22, I stand by it whole heartly.People are in this thread genuinely claiming, after a few decent matches, that Scott McTominay is not only better than Herrera, but that he's also better than Darren Fletcher.. yet no doubt these same people are wondering how we've ended up with such a shower on the field of appalling players not good enough to be playing for this club, it makes you think.
Just fyi, whilst McTominay aint half bad, he's not United first team quality, well i guess he is right now because we are piss poor.
If you remember that version of Fletcher you would agree too.
Steady on sweetheart, no need for name calling.You've got to blind and dumb at this point to not see what Herrera brought to the club. The bloke won the ball back for fun. He injected pace into the side. Had an immaculate touch, and as much as you want to belittle his passing abilities, you'll see more throughballs and dangerous passes then you'll see from Mctominay right now. And yeah, he did 'get the club,' which is why he'd still be running around like a lunatic in the 90th minute when the rest of the team had given up. He happened to also be the last natural leader we had on the pitch.
Your comparison to Arteta just goes to show how off you are about what type of player he was for us. His defensive contribution was far and away the and most important aspect of his game, but people still insist on judging him on his playmaking abilities.
I do appreciate his tacking ability and even his positional awareness, but claiming he injected pace into the side is simply wrong, I don’t think I’ve seen a midfielder passing it to his goalie as often as he did, let’s not reinvent history, it was ridiculous.
Hence why I reckon Mourinho wanted someone else in.
