Kean has shown no ability or aptitude to track a full back.I think we should stick with 442...give the opposition something to think about.
Bernard left -- Kean right and DCL + Richarlison up top.
That would be exciting.
When has Kean ever played wide right in a 4-4-2 ?
He's played wide right (albeit in a 3) probably more times than at centre forward...Kean has shown no ability or aptitude to track a full back.
He's a centre forward FFS.
He's struggling as it is - why give him a task he is ill equiped to perform?
Do you want to obliterate his confidence ?
Zat , usually enjoy and appreciate your posts but ;He's played wide right (albeit in a 3) probably more times than at centre forward...
Not quite sure what the fixation is with a 19 year old being pigeon holed into a specific position...seems peculiar.
Dont see many "FFS Richarlison is a left winger" shouts these days...wonder why? Could be because hes played CF for Brazil youth teams and found his way back there...just as Kean has played wide right...
I really think we need his pace from the flank and as much of a goal threat as possible...Zat , usually enjoy and appreciate your posts but ;
a. If you don't know the difference between playing wide in a 3 man attack and wide in a 4 man midfield then you need to educate yourself and
b. you must surely appreciate the struggle that Kean as a 19 year old , in foreign country , where there is so much expectation of him , failing to get game time is then asked to take on a role completely alien to him. Just imagine that unacustomed to the position he switches off , fails to track his full back who sets up a goal for United , yep that's really going to help him.
With our lack of wide options there is no reason to move on before his contract is up. I actually think he would do well for us if we didn't also sign Richarlison who fills the role of goal scoring, creatively challenged wideish player at a higher level.One year left on his contract, I think it's sensible to keep him until the end unless an offer comes in. He can still offer a threat (when fit) and clearly has a good attitude which is important. No hard feelings against him even though he's not the best player. Give him Walcott over Iwobi any day of the week.
