Won us the game imo. Excellent performance.
he has been great - still a young kid too - he could be a great left back for the next 8/9 years
Great player despite what the Caf experts / Mourinho acolytes have said over the years.
Yeah he's always been technically very good and a lot of people seem to have missed that. Southampton produce a fair few like that.
My problem with him was getting injured every two seconds. If that's truly behind him then theres nothing to worry about (seems to be).
Anyway, been terrific. One of the few positions we dont have to worry about what so ever. Injuries permitting hes basically set for the next 7-8 years if not more. Probably Rashford is the only other one you can say that for, Martial to an extent as well (since he signed his extension). We know they're good enough now, and they're all young so youd expect them to progress still while they're also here for the forseeable future.
He had fitnesss issues but he used to barely get a run of games to build up his fitness. My issue was with the people who slated his ability and made out like he was useless.
2 assists in 2 games iirc. He's not adding to his attacking side which is great to see, really took his chance this season.
Man like Luke is flawless defensively, nothing new.
One of our few players that should be starting in a title winning side.
He’s on the verge of becoming world class. I’m happy for him.
Really glad we decided to stick with him. He’s becoming such a beast of a player, and his best years are still ahead of him.
Looking much sharper in the final third, much needed improvement.
Needs more improvement to be a world class so let’s not get ahead ourselves calling him he’s at edge of world class. However, He’s my motm today (again) and it was top performance once again, I can see him to be a future best left back in the league.
Said it few times, he is just very good footballer. His first touch and passing in general is good. That pass for the goal, he played similar one playing for England.
He should work on his crossing. Yesterday Watford player just stayed very close to Martial when we counter attacked, leaving acres of space for Shaw. He didn't do anything just waited for sometime and finally passed the ball to Martial. If he can work on his crossing, he can whip decent deliveries to box from deeper position too.
Overall he had good game and season. One less position to worry about in summer.
Well he's definitely got his arse into gear big time. Imo the criticism was warranted, as everyone knew he had talent, but I think Jose gave him the boot up the arse needed. And I'm no Jose fan. He looked better from the start of the season and now under Ole he can really flourish, and I think we've seen that with his improved attacking play.
He is absolutely brilliant. Best LB in the league. Has the technical ability to improve going forward. God I hope he stays fit.
was monstrous again. Can we get a gif of the assist? Impeccable pass.
I got proper annoyed when he failed to square a simple cross to be tapped in but apart from that it was very good performance. First touch might be the best in the whole squad. Crossing needs to be improved. Especially if our fullbacks learn to play into the space to be attacked and not always into feet- we'll be scoring goals for fun.
Saying Luke Shaw was MOTM is like the norm these days. POTS for me so far.
What a beast. And some lovely comments about Ole post-match.
He's becoming a truly special player. I've been so impressed with his attacking this season. He's always been a pretty good defender but his passing and dribbling have improved significantly. If he can add shooting over the next year or two we could have an exceptional player on our hands.
Evra was an atrocious crosser; Shaw is probably better at this and at passing. But Paddy was an outstanding dribbler and so much of our play went down the left and some of the one-two passes and movement was just
Shaw can work on this but we need whoever playing on the left and in the middle to have better movement too.
Thank goodness we didn't ship him off and sign Rose for 40-50m!
Defensively, he's the best LB in the league. He is also getting better with his passing and link up play. Now he just needs to work on his fitness and final ball/cross to become one of the best in his position.
I'm sure they already do but more work needs to be done on scenarios where he gets the ball in the opponent's penalty area. The strikers and Shaw need to figure out certain routines to make the most of such situations. I usually find none of our players free or making any useful run when Shaw has the ball in their box. There are no clever runs or opportunities for cut backs into good areas.
Honestly, the treatment bordered abuse. Constantly calling him out, saying ‘he was playing with my brain’, questioning his work ethic when he was actually injured etc.
God, what a blight that man was to this club.
Possibly our player of the season. Faultless performance.
Yup, he really was a horrible influence and he created such negativity it was unreal. Can’t believe some lapped it up.
What did he say I missed it?
You could make a case for him being our player of the season. Certainly one of the most consistent.
"He gives me lots of confidence and let's me know he believes in me and that's all a player needs" Obvious dig at Jose, entirely on the money of course. Goes on to say "... he's been magnificent and it was only a matter of time before he got announced and we're all happy for him ..." nice words very genuinely spoken.
I agree with this. I came in to read about Shaw's performance and it turns into a Mourinho bashing/defending thread.
It's tiresome and even myself get caught up with it.
Look at how consistent he is, I am so happy for him.
That's the kind of pass that Messi would be proud of, it's even more amazing that it came from a left back. If he can work on improving his crossing, he's gonna be the best LB for sure.
Think he's done alright to be honest. He has a hard time because people compare his to Robertson who has like 12 assists
He is getting closer to that level he reached at the start of the 2015/16 season before the injury where he completely owned the left hand side of the pitch. The way he won the ball and drove forward with the ball really reminded me of 15/16 Shaw.
He has always been superb defensively IMO but if he can improve on his crossing and increase his attacking output then I think he would have a good shout at being the best LB in the league.
POTM for March - well done Luke
He'd be considered world class if he could add a proper cross.
Sloppy as feck and now missing for two games, his worst performance in ages.
That suspension really couldn't come at a worse time really. The foul was very clumsy, disappointed in him.
Thought he was terrible
