He could be the one. Seems to have everything.

Does everything quickly too, which is something I vaguely remember being a good quality.

It's certainly a trait a United player should have, albeit that is coming from someone who loved to watch Berbs play. Players that hold onto it too long don't thrive at United in the main.

This is where the club needs to decide what style of football it actually wants to play and stick to it. As boring and soul-destroying as it was to watch, it was clear what LvG wanted; possession based football, patient build up, attacking players capable of taking on defenders and making space for teammates to move into to break teams down. Unfortunately we had a past it Van Persie, a Falcao in rehab, a Depay that decided to beef up too much and the same old fucking idiots we call out now clogging the squad up. And Schneiderlin (what a nothing).

Since Mou took over we've gradually become a more counter-attacking side but without any actual counter-attacking football. Admittedly that has changed a bit under Ole, but we still look absolutely laborious when attacking at times, especially later on in games. I know he's been calling out fitness so hopefully that changes, but it's alarming how often we seem to lack cohesiveness.

It's why throwing the baby out with the bath water in 2016 was such a disaster. United will not get back to the level we want to be at until we improve our possession and positional play. The tempo and movement between the lines didn't progress in LvG's second season the way he wanted, but the shape and the structure remained a decent base to build on. The appreciation of controlling the ball and making the opposition move will come again at some point but it's been set back by the anti-possession drilled in under Mou.

A Portuguese double of Fernandes and Neves could be an option. Guys who have the skill and brains to control and change the rhythm of a game. I don't have the scouting knowledge of the European game but Koulibaly, Neves, Fernandes and another pacey attacking option would do me. There will be plenty of alternatives if the club have some insight into the current market.
