Geez, it's just the perfect timing...Pogba barely comes back and now McT is out for some time. :(

Thought the booking was harsh.
It didn’t stop him flying into tackles after. A bit careless at times with possesion.

His desire, passion and work rate are 10/10. But midfielder limited like him must be backup option at best( and i am saying this only because he is local kid.)

I am old fashion guy i guess. I can't rate midfielder( i repeat midfielder, so position that dictates tempo) who si technically too limited. Era when one midfielder was a bully is over long time ago. Yes, you need hard working midfielder in squad but that midfielder must also be good on the ball. He doesn't need to be Modric, Pogba or Silva of course but he needs to have solid technique. Especially if he plays in midfield 2 like we are( sort of) playing. It is not coincidence that we are overrun in midfield in away games when teams play high pressing football against us.

The fear is McTominay has suffered knee ligament damage FFS, the club can't buy break after a win.

Mctominay is so much better than Fred in the double pivot, and on balance better than pogba this season too. Fred has had 4 or 5 good games but mctominay has been out most important player and only real leader for much of the season - Fred looked lost without a few weeks ago
....better at heading the bal maybe. Fred is the much better midfielder though - pivot or not - and has been incredibly consistent this season. Definitely more than 4 to 5 games in other words.

Hoping we’ve got Soumaré lined up this January
Still...a new player from another league needs time to acclimatise himself. Will he be afforded such time?
A couple of bad games and he ll be slated by the toxic section of our fan Base.

I hope we go for a proper midfielder to play next to Fred. This could be a big chance for us to finally upgrade our midfield.
Wow a player who’s arguably been our best player this season hits a dip in form and The knifes are out. He then plays a half injuried where he may have ligament damage and people conclude that he’s not good enough anyway so we should use this to “upgrade”

We need to upgrade many positions man, and CM is certainly one of them.

That doesn't mean McTom hasn't had a good season and isn't a very useful player to have.

Been excellent this season so far, perhaps just dropped a little in the last two or three games, so may have needed a short break, but unfortunately looks like it could be a little longer. Fingers crossed that he's back soon and raring to go. Not entirely happy with Pogba in his place for the next few games probably, we will possibly not be so good defensively, but hopefully will create s lot more chances.

Same bloke just described Fred as incredibly consistent so safe to discount anything he says

He just needs time out of the firing line. He's still very young for midfield. Give him a break.

If the start of the season and end of last season is anything to go by I ament banking on it. We need a totally different pogba than the last 9 months. Mctominay playing would have helped me a lot in my view

The way that post was written was as though this was the opportunity united needed to get another player in. And I found that disgusting given it’s one of our youth players who’s a starter in the team and one of our “fans” is happy that he’s out.

I agree we need to improve our midfield but I don’t think it’s Fred or Scots position is a priority. It’s more amf and adding quality in depth.

This means we're now going to have Pogba back in CM with the continual rotation of Lingard & Pereira at #10..

I don't think he's been anywhere near our best player this season, and we went into the Newcastle game in 8th place. Nothing to write home about.

And that’s down to Scott?

It’s amazing that people look at our best players this season and put it down to them for us not being better. Wasn’t that long ago some on here were saying that Rashford had to go on loan and Martial wasn’t good enough.

Scott’s role in the team is to break up opposition play and distribute the ball which he does well. His job isn’t to act as the creative outlet in the team.

Knee ligaments are at best case 3 months on the sidelines, that's just if its sprained. If he's ruptured it then he's looking at 7-9 months depending if there meniscus damage.

With our injury luck I'm not surprised if he's out for the rest of the season.

I'm no expert, but Health Harvard says:
""How long a knee sprain lasts depends on the type of knee sprain, the severity of your injury, your rehabilitation program and the types of sports you play. In general, milder Grade I and Grade II MCL or LCL sprains heal within 2 to 4 weeks, but other types of knee sprains may take 4 to 12 months."

Unfortunately, I don’t back any of these journalists to ask about it.

The timing of the injury is very irritating. First, pogba just came back and we are again back to having 2 settled midfielders. Second, this injury means Matic stays. Bad bad timing.

I don't think you can say he's been our best player. AWB has done his job better than McTominay. Rashford has had bigger highs than McTominay. I would put them above Scott.

Will be very annoyed if his recklessness has done him over as there was no need for it.

Alas, the exuberance of youth, I suppose.

With our dearth of deeper midfielders, we’ll be severely compromised without him.

Incredibly unlucky.

i don't mind and welcome the commitment he showed. He didn't want to stand down against a defensive Newcastle side and tried to set the tone that we were ready to fight for every ball even if we knew we would dominated possession.

Such a fecking shame, we can't see McFred behind Pogba FFS.

Surely this means we get a CM in the January window? Shame we can't see the 3 best midfielders together but hopefully we can get another good one in.

This. Having completely torn my acl and lcl and partially torn my mcl and pcl (all in one fun injury, mind), I can assure you there’s a world of difference on how long you heal depending on which ligament you hurt and how bad the sprain is.
MCLs and LCLs are on the inside and outside of the knee, respectively, get direct blood flow and heal on their own and much quicker. ACLs and PCLs are in the anterior and posterior, respectively, Of the knee and don’t get that blood flow. Tears of ACLs and PCLs require surgery.
If he’s got a mild mcl sprain, he could be back in late January. If he’s completely torn his acl, he’s done for the season.

world of difference depending on which knee ligament he’s hurt and how badly.
