    Seems that Jesé Lingard bashing is the new in-thing. He’s the anti-Christ to attacking football, a player who is stealing a living and worse than all other players in the PL. And that’s just the opinion of United fans.

    This thread http://www.redcafe.net/threads/worst-pl-players-stealing-a-living.434056/ had some United fans quick to bash Lingard, only in the team because he’s local etc. I’m going to call this bashing Lingardism From now on.

    This guy doesn’t understand and clearly no talking to him. Perhaps this video may help.



    Talking about 17 year old Gomes in a transfer forum thread, Lingardism even slips in there
    Since they don’t even play in the same way, not sure how a 17 year old who is not yet an u-23 regular is going to be better.

    Well said this guy, he gets it. Fergie always had utility players who could do a job for the team, O’Shea, park, phizza to name just 3. You don’t win things without players like that getting minutes alongside the more talented players or illustrious names.

    So, here’s to Jese Lingard.

    You seem genuinely upset every time someone criticises Lingard. Are you related to him or something?

    No, I just recognize what he brings to the squad. The Lingardism has been over the top imho

    It’s not just Lingard though. It was Fellaini (a little less so now). People are on Herrera’s case these days. Lindelof hasn’t even settled and there’s cries for him to be sold.

    He’s done ok.

    Lindelof and Young deserve threads like this. I been critical of Young’s final ball and he’s not a long term solution.

    You could make this thread about any number of players through the years. I'm making peace with the fact that more than half of this site are miserable keyboard know it alls who go silent every time their depressing wisdom turns out to be nonsense.young is another great example , as is the fact that so many thought we were going to get rattled by Watford

    I definately see what Young brings to the squad. Crossing and set pieces. He also beats a player.

    Lingard? I suppose that this thread has convinced me that he is the new Messiah.

    He's obviously going to be criticised because he's worse than our other attacking players. What the feck do you expect?

    I'll confess I'm not a huge fan. He wears his heart on his sleeve, but he's just not good enough to be here long term I don't think.

    He's crap... shouldn't be anywhere near our bench never mind starting. If we had a better player who could do his role we'd be so much better.

    His off the movement and picking the right spaces to change the front 2 to a front 3 is absolutely a fine thing to watch.

    Linga Rd is a better Am than a winger. Martial is a CF not a LW. Don't get fooled by the football they play in their worst positions.

    Same with young - young is a quality wingback - its time we forgot about the guy who use do be a left winger/left midfielder for us.

    Because he's generally fairly shit, largely does sod all and misses glaring opportunities infront of goal on a regular basis (see tonight).

    A spade is a spade, innit.

    He plays in an advance position; either AM/L AM/C or AM/R and has a combined total of 20 goals and 15 assists in 129 games. Outside of the usual "stats aren't everything" argument, his overall influence isn't sufficient to justify his inclusion as a squad player. Arguments for his inclusion from those who cite his defensive contributions also ought to know that his tackles won and interceptions made per game have dropped progressively over a five year period.

    I thought he did well for Martial's goal. His overall play has been decent. Should have done better for the rebound he belted straight at Gomes though.

    He's still better than Mkhi right now, and it's a toss up between him and Mata on form IMO.

    Hardly an open goal if Gomes was there to make the save. Blatant Lingardism there.

    He brings diddly-squat. Maybe that'd valuable to Jose.

    This is a good game from him, which unfortunately is not saying a lot. Still a better showing than Mkhi has put in any time recently.

    In regards the OP, I think as well as his performances, people can be irritated by his personality on and off the pitch.

    It's the guys who criticise Lingard when we're in the midst of smashing a team away that clearly have issues.

    I've always said it, his movement helps us in attack immensely. He may not be the best or most skillful but he's runs creates space for others.

    His finishing is poor. Should have scored the 4th for us. Let us not make him great, just a good squad player.

    He's been very good tonight and in several key games last season. I can't understand it.

    Lingard has been better than anything Mhikitaryan and Mata have cooked up lately.. The Caf took Lindelof and tore him a new one and Young has had a torrid time... Fellaini was the anti christ... His wages have nothing to do with him, he seems well liked and gets on with it.. But he is a good squad player and one of our own.. But dont worry we will buy someone from Dortmund to let us down..

    If you can’t see that he had a good game so far today then perhaps football is not for you. Try handball or something.

    He's one of the best in the league off the ball. His movement is unreal, he always picks up space and makes it easier for everyone else. He just doesn't have that top level end product

    I don’t hate any united player but he’s not good enough. He constantly plays what should be attacking balls behind the receiving player, has no pace and doesn’t get the number of assists and goals to justify his attacking place in the team.

    Don’t try to make it personal by defending an average player.

    You don't need a video to explain what your eyes can tell you from consistently watching him play, he is not good enough for a club that aspires to be the best in the world.

    I am starting to think that a lot of Lingard supporters have never played football. That video is beyond embarrassing, he pretty much talks about Lingard's performance against Chelsea where we all know he had a good game along with the rest of the team. Sigh!!!!

    I like him. He's an inoffensive squad player. I dont want him starting against City in a fortnight, but games like this he puts his shift in. I'm sure Gabby Obertain got less shit than he does.
