    I agree with the op, I think he would be much better if we used him as an post-orthodox inverted libero instead.

    This might be the strangest thread this season. Toni V is a machine, he's the opposite of lazy. Close this thread, rubbish!

    José said before the Chelsea game that Valencia has a "small problem" and that "he can't play every game". So in addition to Tony V being our most hard-working player, he might be carrying an injury.

    Haha I want to see the numbers of each of our players meters / game average. I got a feeling Valencia is very close to the top..

    DDG and most keepers for that matter are proper lazy, barely leave the area for 90 straight mins and nothing is said but you wanna have a go at Tony V? Ok mate.

    Holy moly.. Couldn't this have been discussed in his thread? I've got plenty of bones to pick with Valencia but last night (and the first leg) was clearly tactical to counter the threat of Achempong. Every time Valencia was out of position Achempong was getting in behind like a knife through butter.

    Lazy? Most definitely not. Worth visiting in the summer for an upgrade/organic replacement? Definitely.

    He loves holding up play when we are up against compact teams; I have seen that in other games against similar opp. this season. It helps our Wingers/AM's to escape markers and find space to run in behind their men or if that doesn't work out, he tries to run past them.
    Tony doesn't cross that often though anymore, or does it from deep- mobility of players coming in the box plays a big role with that.

    The worst thing about ridiculous wind up threads like this, is that some journalists will one day quote the OP, and categorise us all in the same light :(

    Laughable. The guy is like the Road Runner, up and down the right side the entire game. He has been transformed from a fairly average winger into a top full-back. His speed and strength are missed any time he doesn't play, he must be one of the first names on Mourinho's teams sheet. Been one of United's best and most consistent performers this season.
    Is this a serious post ?

    What? He covers the entire right wing on his own.

    just a couple of times I remember him being 20/30 yards behind the play.....

    found that strange for him

    maybe alternating who attacked at points with Shaw
