    Absolutely agree. Young was the only outfield player to come out of the game yesterday with any credit. Maybe Lingard too.

    Of the rest half played like it was a mid-season friendly, the others like they were Sunday league players.

    He was ok, didn't really get forward a lot but was generally steady.

    Defensively decent but didn't get close to Martial in attack.

    Played a great game, mostly against Mahrez who is a handful..

    Looking over my shoulder.
    He was good defensively, but as you said, he gave Martial absolutely no support. Strange that.

    His bottom level is tragic.

    It is weird, but he never is as good on the right as on the left.

    Honestly I fought he did very well first half, even on the right. Excellent defending when isolated and given Arfield a tough time.

    Heck thought he and Shaw if not for Lingard scoring two would be competing for MOTM. Was great to see proper width and crossing coming from RB.

    Great to see him in such form on his old days. Offers much more going forward than Valencia tbh but a bit less crossing might actually improve our game.

    Lots of crosses, but ultimately wasteful.

    Should have been driving into the box more rather than lumping hopeful crosses in.

    Excellent game. He was one of few bright spots in a horrible match. Well done Ash.

    He wasn't wasteful, he put in a perfect cross for Jesse to miss, then minutes later assisted Jesse. He's been our most consistent player this season and to play well on the left and right shows how good he really is.

    For some reason he looks better on the left, than on the right. Maybe it’s just me.

    Crossing on his stronger foot helped today, other than Mata and Lingard he was the only one providing any kind of threat in attack.

    It says a lot that I was screaming at our players to pass him the ball.

    A much better attacking outlet than Valencia, probably not anywhere near as good defensively but both are wingers who what can you do? Superb ball in, very smart delivery that made me sit up in my chair (the one that pope bloody saved with his face and knew nothing about ffs would have been a beautiful assit). Maybe because of the state of our fullback's crossing in the last couple of seasons.

    When Valencia comes back, maybe get Young up the field into that RW/F spot.

    Says a lot about our side that a left winger who has to play full back to get a game is in contention for that.

    Ashley Young is using the dark arts. Anyone see that elbow to the liver by young just before the ball comes in. Surely you can only learn that type of defending from the master.:lol:

    Funnier in the days it doesn't likely result in him being suspended during a hectic schedule.

    Stupid if he gets a ban considering he's our best/only attacking outlet these days and Valencia is injured.

    Fecking ridiculous that he'll get a ban because of BT replays.

    Where was Barry and Heghazi's bans for assaulting De Gea?

    Mourinho needs to bring that up.

    Well considering he’ll likely get a ban we’ll see if you’re still loving it in a few days. Hopefully he doesn’t, but if the FA don’t ban him for that he’ll be lucky.

    He was solid but I wouldn't be surprised to see the FA jump on that elbow.

    Wouldn’t be surprised?!? He hits a guy like a bitch with his elbow, he is getting 3 games and should be fines for as many games.

    One of the few players left from the SAF era that knows what it means to wear the shirt. Frustration got the better of him in there moment today.
