He can't get a free pass on the Eriksen signing and playing him out of position though. It's £200k a week wasted on making us a poorer side. I'd have preferred we have the money to Mata. At least he gave a damn.
Get the Rabiot deal done and get Eriksen to the bench. He's not a CM.
It was criminal to play him in the work horse position in CM against Brentford. He's a player that should come on in the 60th minute at 0-0. He's one of the best passers of the ball in the final third in the world. Play him in the final third.
Come on man Mata was a waste of space his legs were gone.
I agree Eriksen was an odd signing I said it at the time but he can’t have been signed to be the holding midfielder he was a bench option in my opinion to play Europa/cup games.
Utd have simply taken to long in making other signings meaning we’ve started both games this season with major tactical problems. 1st game no fit striker and 2nd game using a guy out of position because new signings haven’t arrived.
He is also going to have a massive problem all season trying to play out from the back with De Gea he just can’t do it. Arsenal had this exact same issue when Emery took over with Cech in goal. He was a great keeper a legend of the PL era but he couldn’t adapt to playing from the back I think we face the exact same issue with De Gea.
Eriksen made a mistake yesterday but the pass it’s him was horrible no pace on the ball bobbling all over the place and you could see even before De Gea kicked it that Eriksen would be under pressure. Eriksen should have dealt with it but De Gea should have seen it coming he has to start fizzing these passes into the player to give them the time to play it first time round that corner.
