You can tell this from the mostly 20-30 minute cameos he gets here and there?
You say that but the team has been on the beach for weeks. This team just wants the season to end. I don't think we're seeing anything other than a comfortable United win.Surely he has to play against us. These are the scenarios he is meant to thrive in. Space in behind the full backs to run into. Defo scoring a hat trick tomorrow.
I’d say there are reasons. When he signed he hadn’t played any real football for like 2 months and for some reason Potter threw him straight in the starting lineup. The debut cameo at Anfield aside, it was obvious he looked rusty as hell and needed some kind of preseason program to help get his match fitness to the required level. And yes I would say coming into a team that is imploding, that has gone through 3 managers in one season, is hardly ideal.You think there is no reason for starting him 6 times beyond the excuse of "bad coaches".
