ripping the reward

Of course his average would be better due to smaller sample size and he played with a better team. Put absolute donkeys in front of Bruno(equivalent to Lingard and Perreira) and his numbers will suffer.It doesn't really matter if Bruno's average score is higher. I'll take a 7.5 player with the occasionally 5/10 performance over a player that always gets between 6 and 7.
Bruno played with Rashford, Greenwood and Martial in front of him, players that get him goals(win him penalties) and assists(can score screamers even from simple passes) even if he had off games, like his last 5 or so games.
The bolded part seems to be deliberately ignored by some people. Not to mention those 3 weeks were arguably our most crucial of the season.I don’t see how anyone can give it to Bruno when he played basically less than half a season, and the last 2-3 weeks of the season he was pretty shit. And please don’t cite G/A stats as they provide 0 context.
I think it’s clearly Martial, but I can understand votes for Maguire as well. I think Rashford drops out just because of his injury and lesser impact after coming back from it.
Also can’t believe people are trying to use Caf ratings as statistical evidence of someone being better.
