    Zlatan's reaction to the run was the best thing about today :lol:

    Yes, but in no way can you judge that after a 45 minute spell after Zlatan's first few days.

    He's not a new signing mate. Give it a year and people will clamour for a new shiny toy to replace Shaw.

    No of course not, but I wouldn't completely rule it out.

    We could probably get by in attack with him and Martial for the next decade.

    We could do that but Rashford is going to be a striker. Would it be worth changing his position and potentially messing with his development just to fit in a 35 year old for a season? It would seem like madness to me

    So you want Rashford instead of Ibra. But do you honestly think that will be the case?

    It's quite incredible just how rounded a footballer he is at his age.

    His confidence and technique is ridiculous. Defenders shit themselves when he runs at them. What a little gem.

    I don't think playing on the right would change his game at all tbh. Just look at the way he plays when he's up front, he's already like a winger in many ways. Imagine him running at players and cutting in from the right for 90 minutes, he'd cause all kinds of problems for defenders.

    Getting excited is one thing but saying he should play in front of Zlatan at this stage is just dumb in my opinion.

    Absolutely no doubt he could do it. He probably be great there. But he'd better better through the middle.

    He should play in front of Rooney.

    Oh, we are excited. But my only worry is his age, he is bound to lose form at some parts of the season, like with all young player. As good as he is, he still needs to be managed properly.

    He started playing last season cause of the injuries and look at him now. He's a wonderful, wonderful player.

    It's not that mental to pick the player who suits the side over the bigger name. If we look a more dangerous side with Rashford up front (and I'm not saying we will, the season hasn't even started) then you play him.

    We're clearly a better team when we have pace and movement up top.

    Wasn't there some ridiculous discussion a few months ago about how Rashford's first touch and close control weren't that good? Obviously at 18 still has plenty to work on and improve, but criticizing him at this point comes off like jaded contrarianism simply for the sake of.

    Zlatan has just made his debut and scored a wonderful goal. Plus he has just come of a season where he scored like 50 goals and been one of the best strikers in the world. Rashford has came of his breakthrough season, if this was like 10 games into the season I would understand it more but not on a friendly. Now if it was to take Rooney's position that makes sense as last season Rashford showed more but not on Zlatan or Mkyt for that point! What if we sign Pogba and first game he does ok but Rashford comes on and playes well in is position should we drop Pogba??

    To be fair nobody's criticising him. It's just a few people want Zlatan more.

    God, I love this kid so much. I hope he isn't used sparingly this season; he's already good enough to be an important 1st teamer.

    This lad will be a fantastic option off the bench. Bursting past tired defences.

    Obviously I want him to start more games too, Europa League will be perfect for him.

    His all-round game, one two, passing and close control are very good. He is much better than I thought he will be when I saw him first time. Improved a lot.

    We could also easily play the old 4-4-1-1 with one of Rasford or Zlatan playing SS. Must not be a case of either Rash or Zlatan.

    Rashford is a far greater threat up front because he is mobile and intelligent. He creates overloads on the flanks which unlocks defences, and he also creates more space for the midfield as the defence is forced to drop deeper because of his pace. Carrick would have struggled in the first half because they were pressing us well, but they couldn't in the second half as there was too much ground to cover.
