Ed002, if you have a moment?

Who at the club wanted to sign Fred?


{Ed002's Note - Someone who is now gone from the club.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Ed, With this someone now gone and Fred playing so poorly is the club looking to move him on? Or will this not be decided until a manager is announced?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest in him.}

I think he deserves another season. Some players take longer to settle than others. Look at Lindelof this season compared to this season for example. If in 12 months time there's no improvement then needs to be considered.

01 Mar 2019 16:43:15
Totally agree mort.

Hes probably wondering why his name gets sung throughout the game. Sadly it’s because it rhymes with bred. Let’s hope he earns his own song next year.

He looks a little lost at time, adjusting to the pace and the power of the EPL. He is too easily pushed off the ball and he takes too long on the ball at times as well.

I think he could adapt, however To do so will take game time. It's whether he can get that.

I would give him another season the EPL is a massive step up from the Ukrainian league.

The situation with Lindelof is completely different.

Lind is a young cb who had to get used to the physicality of the EPL, and even last season he showed his quality at the international level.

Fred is a player who should be entering his peek years, and I still don’t know what he’s actually good at. Terrible first touch, not particularly creative on the ball, offers nothing in the final third, average defensively.

What is he good at?
What makes him a £50m player?
What is his function in our team?

Thanks Ed002.

I'm afraid I agree with Danny. I don't tho k it's a question of adjusting to the league, I just don't see the basics of first touch, positioning and vision in him.

He looks like he shouldn't even be playing in the Premier League, nevermind for Man Utd.

{Ed002's Note - The solution would be to loan him out as I doubt a buyer can be found at anything like a reasonable price.}

Cheers Ed for the reply. I agree with Danny as well. I cannot see him ever being at the level required to play for Man United. I’d be more than happy if he proved me wrong though.

I agree he’s been poor but Lindelof was shocking and look at him now. Some adjust immediately, some take time, some never adjust. We shall see.

AJH, Lindelof always looked like a good footballer though. Most importantly, he looked comfortable with a ball whereas Fred looks scared by it.
