I thought I made it very clear what I thought are LKK’s capabilities, what he can do and what he can’t do.

LKK is not a striker who dummies or dribbles. The only one thing he really does is to score, so when he doesn’t score he’s not adding anything to the game.

If he scores, all seems fine. But when he doesn’t score, it’s a problem because he doesn’t contribute to the team play otherwise.

Before the season started, was there evidence to shoe that LKK can score for United? I think the answer is yes. But of course at this point in time we don’t feel that way because he can’t even shoot at goal properly.
Before, he can score.

Now, JM looks like deploying him with 3 tasks; score, hold up play, and run at defence. is he doing any of them? no.

Yes if he scores, all ok. if he doesnt? we dont need another deadwood doing walkabout.

What Im trying to say/mean is we need a striker that can score and at least help the team out instead of blaming the team for not adapting to his play

Our squad is so weak now that I don't believe buying a new striker or a new midfield, or a new defender can solve the problem. There is just too many deadwood. I respect the old guards but look at how ruthless SAF was with the old guards. We used to have a strong skeleton from back to front. Back the current team, where is our skeleton?

the skeleton, by the consensus of those pro JM, is inside Woodward's wallet.

At this point in time, not even sure if LKK can score from
an open goal.

If LKK is to be benched, I think Alexis should lead the front line then.

Itís really insane to expect Rashford to step up and be the answer right now.

lol, he already missed an open goal in the Tottenham game.

For me its insane to ask Alexis to lead, because he HAS to lead with that enormous wage. but he's doing nowt as well..

MarcusR will benefit from this stress though. If we can bear with it for 2 years, he will be our main striker by the time he's 23.
Asakura and apeape like this.

LKK can be our version of Giroud...not scoring goals, but his first touch and awareness is pretty poor, so there's no way he will draw players to him to allow the other players like Martial/Rashford to score.

IF you noticed, the team and players have also stopped providing the passes that take advantage of his strength. LKK needs the ball to be fed in a certain manner for him to be effective. The only players that can do that are Pogba, Mata and Miki (in the past). Watch how the other players assisted him during LKK's goal scoring runs last season.

The other young players are all aiming to score the goals themselves...or crossed the ball to LKK in a manner which is difficult for him to control (cos of his lack of technique). When you add in his low confidence and dreadful form now, its no wonder he can't score. Since the team is already comfortable with their current approach to getting goals, they wouldn't want to change it to accommodate to LKK's style of play and risk him wasting the chances they provide to him.

The players too have fallen into the mentality of not wanting to take risks when it involves him. They would rather try and do it on their own or pass to the other players they trust more even if its not working. Just too bad for LKK his days at Utd are almost up. Another player to add to the growing list of transfer failures.

With high wages/transfer fees comes great responsibility to perform week in and out.

i mean where else can it be? you guys cant believe in the players and the board. Take money from Woody buy Perisic suddenly LKK can become RvP? buy Alderweirald/mcguire so Smalling/lindelof/bailly can become vidic or ferdinand? you sure?

For me its never the players (except for a few lah haha) because they are the workers who just follow orders.

its never the board because they dont know anything about football, they just provide the money. Yes I understand Woody has not been trusting JM with cash to spend, because why would he? tell me would he? you all for sure know why.

Dont want to state the obvious why Im Anti-JM, but look at where we are now. We are starting to look like other rival clubs in their darker days. Heck we are bickering like those on Arsenal TV haha. lets not even start about tactics or first 11, because everyone is wrong including me. we know nothing. but one thing is for sure is the current tactics make Man Utd look bad, and proof is in the pudding if you look at the Table.
