    Give him sweet kisses, a big hug and tell him that everything will be A-Ok?

    @Ashur No doubt we dont have any other alternative to Matic but there is a slight improvement in his game and he is looking to play forward ball.

    He should be just looking to give the ball to Pogba and Herrera.

    Agree but he can pick a pass aswell (rare) its his slowness to release ball infuriates me and when he looses possesion he doesnt have pace and desire to recover ball but hopefully in summer we will sign a proper DM ala our Fernandinho

    As stated, I haven't changed my opinion that we need to look for an upgrade this summer. Matic can stay and see out his contract as a squad member, a role that would suit him just fine (on top of a required one for us as well).
    That being said, got to give Ole and the staff credit for how they managed to make him decent at least. He has changed his game and the improvement is noticeable. And given the fact that our midfield at this time looks razor thin, I'm actually relieved he stepped it up. If he was the same Matic we saw under Mourinho, we'd be pretty much effed.
    Definitely hope he can keep this up until the end of the season, by which time we can look for someone to replace him long term. And also, I really want Timmy to be brought back as well and start grooming him as a possible option for us in midfield as well.
