Don't give the idiot the clicks.
The bottom line is that Zlatan is pretty much gone, so we've replaced him with Sanchez. Which leaves Rashford in the exact same situation he's been in for 18 months.
'dropped down the pecking order' - he came off the bench before Martial as second sub (first attacking sub) v Huddersfield.
League games pre-Alexis
Southampton (h) - 1st sub, 1st attacking sub
Everton (a) - 1st sub, 1st attacking sub
Stoke (h) - 1st sub, 1st attacking sub
Burnley (a) - 2nd sub, 1st attacking sub
League games post-Alexis
Spurs (a) - unused sub (would have been subbed on if not for Fellaini's injury)
Huddersfield (h) - 2nd sub, 1st attacking sub
No real change. Granted, there hasn't been many games played since we've signed Alexis... which is why it is so fecking stupid for Redknapp to keep yabbering on about it.
He compare Sanchez's situation to his situation when he first came to Anfield. There's nothing to point up from his column there, he failed to pointed that Sanchez brought in in expand of Mkhi which made it even in term of personel.
He failed to mention that Rashford is the most capped player this season.
He not even making a case in terms of tactic hindsight why Sanchez got pick first, just telling a story about wage and fee.
Is that the best columnist Sky can offer?
Where was the same article for City buying Laporte which basically removes Stones from their first 11?
They just can’t seem to quit with United can they. And anyway if Rashford was good enough we would not be trying to buy better players. Fact is he has been involved with more games this season than any other United player.
I actually agree with him... Maybe not right away - he is obviously young and has obviously been playing plenty - but IF Sanchez starts to eat into those minutes, and IF we sign another attacker in the summer (which, after what Jose has said, is guaranteed) we have to be thinking about it. Players don't develop if they're not playing, and sooner rather than later he has to be starting every week and being the main man. Is that going to happen from the bench? Was it looking like happening anyway?
I think he'll be gone in 18 months, but I think hope/think he'll be back a couple of years after that, if he proves himself good enough. Lets be honest - he's not been great this year... Is he a striker or a wide attacker? Are we going to find out while he stays here?
My we rename this thread?
The ‘Jamie Redknapp probably needs to ...’ thread?
Please don't click on that article.
Rashford needs to leave out = totally ignoring these ridiculous kind of so-called "pundits".
If you are good enough you are old enough. For example Nobody going to bench mbappe whenever he went nowadays
The problem is , rashford isn't good enough to start week in week out , we arent rashford fc or youngsters fc
So everything back to him to prove himself
Maybe wait more than two games and see what happens, before starting to worry or suggest Rashford needs to leave?
Well if a young player is going to take career development advice from a former pro, there are few more qualified to give it than 1995 league cup winner Jamie Redknapp.
Apologies if it's already been mentioned, but with the transfer window shut Rashford wouldn't be able to get a Premier League loan move now anyway, and if Redknapp is suggesting he drops down to the Championship he can sod off twice.
Quote? Last thing I remember Jose saying was that making a signing in a position now would mean that we wouldn't be looking for that position in the summer. Priority now seems to be two midfielders to replace Carrick and Fellaini.
Alexis has replaced Mkhitaryan's position in the squad (or, what Mourinho thought Mkhitaryan would be in the first place which is a first Xi player).
I see Alexis as more or less direct competition to Martial's place in the team. Rashford still has an avenue into the team on the right wing. He just needs to take his chances off the bench like Martial did earlier in the season.
Jammy bastard speaks again. He gets paid to talk shit and to stir up controversies. Quite a life He's living, just ignore it.
I believe Rashford has played primarily on the left this season and if United don't bring in another attacker in the summer and continue with Sanchez on the left , then Rashford would probably compete with Martial for the position on right and occasionally filling in for Lukaku.
Ah, yeah. Ignore that. Rashford and Martial rotated on the left to begin with then when Martial became first choice Rashford was the sub for that position. I agree with the rest of your post.
Such a fecking knob. I wish I could get paid to spew bullshit.
Not to leave surely, he still needs to improve alot though. I'd rather picking him for the cup games only for now.
It's amazing how long Redknapp has lasted in his Sky pundit role when he has literally nothing insightful to add about anything.
He just seemed to get his timing really right. He was the inoffensive pretty boy when the Keys and Gray scandal hit and pre-dates the attempt to up their punditry game with Neville and Carragher.
Harry's kid, bangs the anti-Jose pro-Englander drum. Fair play to him. He's obviously made a really good post-football career out of something he has zero talent for. That deserves respect.
Yes, we all know 29 year old Sanchez is a long term threat to 20 year old Rashford....
I haven't read the article but I wouldn't have it's controversial to suggest Rashford has dropped down the pecking order. He has. But to go from that and suggest Rashford should leave is just him being a typical scouse bellend.
He won't recognize a bottom line if it hit him on the bottom circles.
No wonder his missus left.
He's an M.C
Jamie. feck off.
This is all.
In fairness, I do think Rashford should leave on loan. I assume his long term aim is to be a Centre Forward, and Sanchez signing does block his path for that. Personally think it'll be better for his development long term to play up top for a poorer side over the next year or so than to be shunted out wide for a couple of years.
How many 20 year olds are playing up front in starting XI?
It's quite normal for forwards to start on the wing and Rashford wasn't even a CF at youth level.
The idea that he should go on loan is silly. He's played more games than anyone in the squad this season.
Also, how does Sanchez block his path to being a CF?
So Rashford who has played in almost every game for us this season and who only recently started playing from the bench due to a dip in form and Martial's performances, should suddenly leave?
Football pundits baffle me.
Why are some posters offended? Pundits are required to get some controversy going.
Those pricks never do a minimum of research before stating what their biased brains have on the grill.
It is ridiculous and unprofessional considering where they work and the information they have access to.
He did also say this:
”Mourinho has said Sanchez can be an inspiration to Rashford but I don't think that's what he needs right now. We're talking about an established England international. There is only one way to learn, and it's not by sitting next to someone in the dressing room, it's by playing in the team.”
We keep hearing about how a non-participating Zlatan is good to have around as he can be a mentor for Rashford. Now it’s Sanchez turn to be an inspiration to him. What a load of bullshit! So in that respect Rednapp is spot on!
Facts are Rashford’s situation is a difficult one and not easily solved especially after the arrival of Sanchez. So why should the caf go into a meltdown just because a pundit goes out and says he may have to play his football elsewhere? It’s not as if coming to that conclusion is rocket science exactly. Would hate to see that happen myself but you certainly cannot ignore it. Maybe it’s because the pundit was a Liverpool player or he just touched on a nerve. However one thing is for sure Rashford’s situation needs sorting out pretty quick!
Not really, his wife has just left him for a strictly dancer, probably due to all the bollock he keeps spouting.
For a top team? Very few. How many of those CF's at a top team played CF when they were 20? A lot. Sanchez will probably be the back up striker if Lukaku is out in my opinion.
You're right. Instead of playing every game for Manchester United who are 2nd in the league and in the knockout stages in the Champions League, he'd be better off getting more minutes at Huddersfield.
Lads its Jamie Redknapp
Last 5 PL apps:
Huddersfield 20 mins
Spurs 0 mins
Burnley 11 mins
Stoke 11 mins
Everton 13 mins
Trend's more important than looking (as so many do) at the season as a whole.
We have a manager who is reluctant to playing him in a striker role even when our top striker is not scoring goals.
Already at 20 yrs he’s made 15 apps for his country. Time will come he won’t (and shouldn’t) accept not starting games.
It wouldn't be Huddersfield I'm afraid!
