MLS

Maybe ten years ago a guy of his physicality could do it but he would not be a top player. He’d definitely be the smartest guy on the pitch and that can take you far but no way is he elite in MLS in his condition. It’s a really physically demanding league like the Championship. Probably on average similar in skill as well, the best MLS sides would push for 10th or so in the Prem if they had a good season but the worst MLS sides are definitely losing to some League 1 teams.

He's been a bit of a strange signing for us imo. He's got class on and off the pitch and the professionalism that is so lacking in most of our other players, and in his first few seasons he had impressive numbers when it came to goals/assists.

But even during those times it was like he never really fitted in. He's probably an example of how disjointed our transfer policy has been, a great player but one that didn't ever really suit our style of player.

I don't regret us signing him though. He's certainly been a good player for us imo, just didn't really hit the heights we saw at Chelsea.

We had Him,when he was descending,Utd can never allow themselves to make these kind of signings ever again,if they want to be progressive,like those at the front of the pack.

We signed him when he was 25. Definitely not descending, just bought without rhyme or reason. A signing to try and make up for a woeful summer that let Moyes down and appease fans on what was turning out to be a horrific season. He was the first of what would become a culture of shambolic recruitment. 

I don't necessarily think he's been a bad signing, all things considered. He's a good player, at times great, but his problem has become a common story over the years - he's a luxury player and we've never had the midfield to accommodate him.

Like Shinji Kagawa before him & Mkhitaryan after, they were just never a fit in any United team. 

The club's recruitment has been some shitshow when you look back on it.

Those on top were trying to impose a Chelsea/Arsenal type of play,then came Fellaini and rewrote the script.
