I think there's too much hype surrounding Modric. Granted he's technically gifted, and we lack someone with that creativity, but what did he do today?
He doesn't pose enough of a goal threat for me, and is far too physically weak to be a United player.
Give Anderson time to develop I say, he's got the lot.
Also I have a feeling Fergie is holding out for the likes of Cleverley, Pogba and Morrison to break through. Next season I expect all three to get a few chances.
what did modric do today? keep possesion & dicate the play.
thats like does most of spains midfield actually do?
the problem was harrys team selection. playing just crouch upfront means theres no 1 really to aim at.
when we have someone like defoe upfront we are a different team with modric,vdv,bale & lennon playing balls through to his runs behind the defence.
with just crouch upfront we are relying too much on runs from deep.
& crouch isnt mobile enough to be a lone striker in my view.
bales final ball was poor most of the time but to be honest he usually only had a static crouch to aim at.
he creates a lot of chances for out & out strikers like defoe.
bale was ok today not great.
the fact he wasted crossing chances doesnt mean its ok that silva didnt stop the cross coming in.

Bale did nothing but flatter to deceive, much like Lennon, who actually did get the better of Evra most times, but his crossing is almost as bad as Walcotts.
Crouch is the worst striker in the league, whereas you had two top strikers on the bench.
Modric made no real impact on the game. He looks like he does a lot with his great control, but when pressed he just runs around in circles, doing nothing.
It doesn't surprise me why Fergie didn't show any interest in him or VDV. Neither are United players.
