Free kick end of an important game desperate for a goal. We all know Mata has to be on it. I watched and couldn't understand why Fred was taking it, in fact there are a few I would rather take it than Fred.

Ole said post match that Mata and Fred had a free kick competition in training that Fred won by scoring 7 times . What utter amateur nonsense, again. The manager should ignore that puerile childish nonsense and tell the best free kick taker to take it. Lack of leadership from management and we saw it before with the Pogba Rashford penalty farce. It also shows management have not learned from that. Pathetic lack of leadership.

{Ed047's Note - Ollie really is a shocker, I can’t believe some of the stuff he comes out with.

I think it's more pathetic that pep has managed to lose to the worst manager of all time on two occasions this season.

30 Jan 2020 08:40:14
so let's blame ole because 2 grown men decided upon themselves to take the free kick

if fred was banging them in training why doesn't

he deserve to try and give it a go.

How do you rate the best free kick taker?

To get in the team you are supposed to play the best in training to prove you deserve to start. So why doesn't the same apply to taking set pieces?

If Fred outperformed Mata in training in a specific metric then he should be ahead of him in the matches for that specific metric.

{Ed001's Note - surely the issue is how can such a crap free kick taker be the best at it in the team?}

Because if ever a free kick was nailed on for Mata, it was that one last night.

30 Jan 2020 09:09:07
Rashford was blasting free kicks everywhere but on target for the past year or so. I didn't hear too much about managers being totally inept because of it then.
Have you managed to hit bull on that Ole dartboard you have yet mate.

Mata took a free kick from a similar place in the Burnley game and missed it I believe.

30 Jan 2020 09:28:18
To be fair, it’s similar to the penalty taking debacle with Rashford and Martial. It probably happens at every club, the problem is our manager tells the press.
At one point when that free kick was being lined up, I thought Lindelof was going to have a crack 😳
It should’ve been Mata taking it all day long. As much as I now like Fred, his shot is awful.

30 Jan 2020 09:30:56
Don't worry lads, Bruno will step and take set pieces from now.

30 Jan 2020 09:31:59
Red Man, I think it shows how amateur we are. Mata should be taking that all day long, then he is basically ushered away from it by Fred, and even more worrying, Pereira. Absolute joke.

30 Jan 2020 09:55:49
Anyone who has watched the youth teams will know out of the three of them Andreas could have been considered the best option.

30 Jan 2020 10:07:49
I believe Mata has scored every free kick he's ever taken.

30 Jan 2020 10:34:12
He has Nou even the one he didn't take last night apparently.

30 Jan 2020 13:21:56
Wiggy 😁 Caolan, I agree, mate. It's one of the better parts of his game. Maybe Mata for his composure at that stage, but I mentioned on the live chat, Andreas would be a good shout.
