    My blood boils everytime he does this. This should be his last season.

    Looking over my shoulder.
    Does he think he is a mother thinking he has eyes in the back of his head? Every time the opposition tries to run in behind him, it works. Also, Smalling should stop sideways passing to Young. He can just lumo it up himself.

    This is it. I think on balance, he's been a useful member of the team over the last 7 years, but it's seriously time to upgrade - whether that is with Dalot or someone more proven coming in.

    There are very few 33 year old out-field players performing at a decent level in the PL this season. Young isn't one of them.

    Expecting him to play 90 mins against Bournemouth, Juventus, then Man City is crazy.

    So fed up with Ashley Young. Stealing a living playing at this level.

    No scapegoating, this is his thread. Who else is supposed to be talked about here ?

    He’s looked at similar to Smalling on here - always being slagged off, but like Smalling who is our best CB, Young is our best RB.

    Which says a lot about our club at this moment.

    I have no issues with Young, but the fact is, he shouldnt be our starter at RB, but its the situation we are in for one reason or another. And its not a one-off, hes actually the only name we can put there, despite knowing they should be upgraded ASAP.

    He had a terrible game. Best RB means feck all if you cannot defend nor cannot stop lumping it forward aimlessly

    Both of them are way below the required standard, and both seem to get some sort of free pass when they sell out their teammates with shirking performances.

    Young's defending has been horrific this season.

    IF you put Young into that City team and forced him to play every single game, they'd still walk the league.

    He's a very Mourinho player when you think about it. Always gives 100%, has a chip on his shoulder, gets at the referee etc

    Giving him an extension is equivalent to Woodward accepting that he is unfit to attract any quality players to the club and/or is no longer willing to spend anything for the team.

    Coming to Young, I think he has been a great servant. But it is time to move on.

    No one wonder the team is in the state it's in ..players who should of been sent packing years ago are still getting extensions. How the mighty have fallen.

    This definitely means Valencia is not getting a new contract. Next season it shall be dalot/new signing in the first team and Young as backup for RB and LB.
    Also I think we have seen the last of TFM in a united shirt

    Far too often he looks down, runs with the ball towards the sideline and just lofts it forward to the opposition without anyone actually making a run.

    Yep, panics far too often and just lumps it forward, we lose the ball and the other team has possession.

    If Dalot isn't an improvement on the current Ashley Young he's a complete waste of money. Sooner he's fit the better.

    Statistically one of the worst crossers in the league.

    feck me, it's funny that he's still a first choice full back at United.

    A failed winger at United - he was a bit of a flop, and now he’s somehow first choice full back in his mid thirties.

    What other club would this happen at. Madness. He is absolutely woeful.

    Funny how our right flank was rock solid without him there and a proper defender in his place, despite every man and his dog knowing to attack us down that side.

    It's even funnier when you remember that one of our other four options at full back is there for exactly the same reason.

    Do we not have a single left footed LB at the club? Just promote the next one already. Sack Jose if he has no faith in youth.

    He is fecking woeful and nobody will ever convince me otherwise.

    When he’s on the pitch, EVERYTHING goes through him. I swear he sees the most of the ball because the entire game plan is to “get it to Young so he can whip in a shite cross”... that’s all well and good if he had a Beckham-like cross on him but he fecking doesn’t. He hits the first defender most of the time!

    The fact that he is our primary attacking outlet is the reason we’re so fecking shit. It’s like I’m the only one that can see this.

    Young is the problem. Smalling is the problem. Buy some proper defenders who can play out from the back and watch the attacking play flow. Them just being on the pitch leaves us at a disadvantage because they’re not good footballers. They’re just not. The sooner we get rid of them, the better.

    I honestly feel about Ashley Young like Michael Scott feels about Toby Flenderson in the US Office. I don't know why but his existence at our club explains so fecking much about why we're shite.

    I think I said the same thing a few weeks back. He's absolutely dreadful.

    He sees so much of the ball that people get fooled into thinking he's had a decent game but he kills any passing moves because his only thought is to drive to the byline and cross or play long balls to the striker. He's shite and has been that way except for about a three week spell every season.

    I hate seeing him in our first 11 and hate that Jose and LVG have given him so much responsibility in our team.

    Man United's captain Ashley fecking Young. Good lord

    100% with you there dude. Dont worry we are supposed to be rewarding mediocre players with another year extension. The only thing I will ever remember of Ashley Young in years to come was the diving for penalties and the bird sh*tting in his mouth

    Really? As much criticism as that performance deserves, that's not one of the traits I would associate with Young.

    I'm changing my mind regarding him being our captain. This shower of shite deserves Ashley fecking Young to be their captain. It all comes in one hand.

    Will never understand the concept behind the title “a good servant to the club”.
    I would be a fantastic servant to any club willing to pay me a 1/50 of what he’s being paid, that’s the bare minimum you’d expect from anyone.
    He’s been nothing but average at best during his time here, completely forgettable player.

    Glad he extended contract, gives him time to chase Stewart Downing.
