Disappointed. He needs to work harder. And Ole needs to play him on the right.
I don't think anyone is suggesting that no. But I think people, myself included, think in some situations there's a case to be made to bring on VDB to go more attacking. Fred is useless so it's like playing with one man down at times.I really don't get the vdb thing. Are seriously suggesting vdb and pogba would have been a good midfield two. The only answer here is to bring better midfield players in.
I think sometimes though you have to be able to get the ball with some quality to the forward players. Fred can't do that. Matic can't do it when pressed. VDB may be able to just add a little more quality in possession.There may be a case for that when you are chasing a game. But would you bring him on rather than cavani or even martial if you are chasing a goal. I think Donny is one of those players who gets better the less he plays.
Could do that yeah. Could bring him on for Pogba or actually for Fernandes. I'm just saying there's options and sometimes they need something a little different.We would never get the ball though. We could have maybe played him alongside fred or matic and move pogba back to the left.
He is definitely playing within himself so far, like he's been told to just hang onto the ball and whenever possible give it to Ronaldo or Pogba. We haven't seen him run at players, and I think he's tried one shot. Patience will do.
