It's great to see he's got his mojo back. Remember when we stole him from the Chavs, it was some signing thanks to Mourhino. Appears to have found a new lease of life again and was very happy to see him sign another contract.

Never heard him complain/moan. Keeps of social media or least I think he does. Absolute gentelman off and on the pitch.

Losing to Comeback Winning!
These stats doesn't tell the whole story but interesting nonetheless.

Season 19/20With MaticWithout Matic
Scored59/33 = 1.7949/25 = 1.96
Conceded24/33 = 0.7323/25 = 0.92
Clean Sheet19/33 = 0.5807/25 = 0.28

Seems we tend to score more without him, but a lot weaker defensively.
The team tend to score slightly less with him, but far stronger defensively.

But then how many of this is "covered" by Bruno?

Season 19/20 (Pre-Bruno)With MaticWithout Matic
Scored25/17 = 1.4736/21 = 1.71
Conceded12/17 = 0.7123/21 = 1.10
Clean Sheet11/17 = 0.6503/21 = 0.14

:lol: Ok not much changes. He's part of our best 11 for many good reasons. We score less without him but our defense will be a lot worse.+Bruno covered Matic's lower goals input weakness well so it's not a problem.

It's a good trade-off.
