I never quite agreed with the criticism of him when he first broke through. Ok yes, maybe at times he was a bit limited on the ball but that's at least partly because he was given instructions to keep it simple. I always thought he looked squad player potential at worse. Good at screening and tackling etc. And obviously he's improved further since he started playing more regularly around midway last season. He's definitely more than a squad player now. Before criticizing his performances this season one has to take into account that he is being played out of position. He's currently playing as a 6 when his best position is at 8. For me McTominay is a definite starter and I think he'll improve even further, especially when we get someone else to be the first-choice 6 so he can move back into 8. One of my favorite players in the current squad. I don't think we need to sign another 8/box-to-box except maybe someone for back-up. Focus on 6/CDM instead. Then when Pogba leaves we can assess if we need to sign someone there as well or if Gomes is good enough.
