Well that was interesting. not. One thing Fred has given me is hope. hope that even in my 50s with an injury riddled amateur past there is still hope for me to play professional football maybe even in the prem๐Ÿ˜‚.

All too predictable i'm afraid. up against ndidi and tiel in midfield play Matic/ Fred. superb. At least one thing's consistent the football is crap. He really is a poor poor coach/ manager but looks like he's staying so it's going to be rinse and repeat. Poor show as they say. Top 4 the goal that's it. sad really sad!

Iโ€™ve come to the conclusion that the reason Fred runs around so much is that heโ€™s constantly chasing his first touch.

I can't for the life of me understand why OGS keeps putting his faith in Fred and Matic. We play two defensive midfielders to protect the central defence yet we are so porous you could drive a bus through our team. It has to be clear to all the coaching staff that neither is good enough. They can have the odd good day but to demonstrate that you are a good player you have to do it when it matters. ie all the time. To be honest, McTominay is not the answer either. Oh to have a player like Ndidi.

The two defensive midfielders but still letting in shed loads is just bizarre isn't it. Matic is poor facsimile of his former self these days and Fred can be just woeful at times. A defensive midfielder who passes more time to the opposition than his own teammates.

The 2 DMs has always illustrated 2 weak spots in our squad for me and its the 2 places we have to concentrate on.
1 - a CB that has recovery pace and can compliment better Maguire
2 - a Midfielder who is strong defensively but has a good passing range also

Swap Lindelof and Fred for those two and all a sudden you have a stronger defensive base but also a more attack minded midfield. One that could probably play 10 yards further up the pitch also.

For all the talk of Haaland and Sancho etc those two positions have to be prioritised.

In addition Ole needs to clear out the deadwood. And that includes making difficult decisions about current first teamer.

A huge summer ahead for us. Again. One that defines Ole's career for better or worse.
