Really hate this day and age of trying to write off players quickly or prove they’re st with stats. It’s boring.
True,I write them off quickly based on using my eyes .

Unless he learns to use his right foot he will never be good enough for any team challenging for top trophies
Loads said similar about Evra when he arrived. He had a shocking start to his United career. We all watch the game through different eyes.

ETH wanted for reason. Pellistri will get a chance now he’s looked lively. Martial has 15 more minutes in him as well.
I believe everyone though Ronaldo was talented but wasteful with little end product in his first season with Utd too. Too many tricks and not enough goals or assists.

That being said, at the moment I don't see the same attitude or drive within Anthony that was clearly inside Ronaldo.

That’s a very astute comment, certainly mirrors my exact thoughts. I took a mate to the Leeds match in Ronaldo’s first season and said to him that he had really quick feet, had real potential and if he could ever produce an end product he’d be a world beater. I didn’t realise, just how good he was going to become though.

You’re right that I don’t see that in Anthony too, but then Ronaldo is one of those once in a few generation players and if Anthony ends up 60% as good he’ll still be one hell of a player. Agree he needs a right foot though.

Apart from the goals he's scored ???
Scoring a goal is different to creating chances.....

The discussion was about creativity (or lack of it) from wide players.
I listened to that as well, as the discussion just focused on creating opportunities, and that we need to see more from Anthony in that department.

He has scored goals, but the focus was more on his need to have everything on his left foot and during games it becomes noticeable that an attack will slow down or a chance goes as cant pass or cross with his right foot.

Its something that can be fixed, and overall I think he has had a good first season. As the games come thick and fast, injuries pile up and we will need to have everyone chipping in with assists and goals to carry the team through.

They'll have another stab at the quadruple next season, then.

Shouldn’t we wait until we’ve got tonight and the weekend out of the way before taking the piss? Bournemouth was funny, but then we slipped the following day with Southampton.

RB look fairly average. Could do with getting one last goal against them though.

High octane match, but low quality by us so far.
We have to get on top of their midfield to stop these balls being threaded through. They’ve had several ‘nearly’ moments through the middle.
Can’t believe VAR isn’t allowed to step in about the Pellistri yellow and tell the ref to stop being a knob. Our luck’s just not with us recently.

Against a better team I’m not sure a 3 goal cushion would be enough tonight. We’ve had a good couple of chances missed though.
