Fernandes appears to have been quite a good signing for them, you have to say

He was involved in all 5 goals in this game. 

 

Excellent at set pieces and creating chances, but not a great all round midfielder from what I've seen.

The best thing is that I don't give a shit about them anymore unless we are playing them. I even want them to beat the likes of City and Chelsea as they are no threat to us at all. Had forgot they were playing until I came on here.

Yeah, but isn't that kind of expected for an attacking midfielder? 13 goals and 10 assists in 25 games seems a good return, to me, even if some of those goals are pens.

I think because I grew up with them always being the 'team' and taking years of shit from their fans, I have a deep-rooted hatred of them. They could be playing Sunday league and I'd still be made if of they lost.

Some???

 

I think eight of them 13 were pelanties. Read somewhere that of the last 14 of his 27 goals for United and Sporting last season were.

Even when they're shit their deal with the devil is still in place. Just once I'd like to see them play against a decent side in a match where the ref clearly just fucking hates them and doesn't give them a thing. They'd probably end up sacking Solskjaer at half time.

Yes, I think that would still count as some. But OK, let's say he's only scored 5 goals from open play, as well as 8 pens. I'd still say that's a good return for an attacking midfielder.

I didn't see the end but I'm guessing the referee played extra time as Brighton scored during injury time,  did they take ages celebrating?  There must be something in the rules about VAR after the final whistle has blown.

No he added on an extra 1.5 minutes after what he should have for a goal being scored in extra time. He was determined to give united one last chance

He's done well for them up to now alright.  Whether he can go a full season is another thing.

They wouldn't of got top 4 without Fernández. He's been a very good signing for them. Even if he's not as good as what they make out. Bit like Cantona brilliant for them, incredibly important but wouldn't even make my top 10 billion football players. Better comedy actor than international footballer. Unlike our King who is magnificent.

It genuinely doesn't matter if Fernandes is any good or not. If they keep playing him and Pogba, both of whom want to play as number 10s, in front of 68 year old Matic, in front of one of the worst collection of defenders in the league, they are going to continue being utter shite.

United were time wasting into injury time though.  They took nearly a full minute to make that Van De Beek sub after the board had gone up with 5 on it.  Then you add on Brighton’s celebrations and it’s difficult to complain.  At the end of the day that stupid cunt shouldn’t be trying to handball it in his own box.

Plus van De Beek who is the exact same type of midfielder as Pogba and Fernandes.
