Yeah, because ratings have been known to be infallible right?
6 is a decent rating though, to be fair. Not a bad rating, just not outstanding one so I don't think it proves him wrong that much. Didn't watch the match though, have no interest in friendly internationals to be honest.
Had a fine first half, won the penalty, had a great run leading to a chance and generally did little wrong whenever he got the ball. Odd timing.If Cavani hits the ground running. There'll be no starting 11 spot for Martial when his suspension's up.
Shocking start to the season from him.
I think when they are a partnership it needs to be a 3511 with Rashford being our main goalscorer and Martial playing behind him to be creative, dribble at the defence, pass or shoot.His overall play was good, holding the ball up well and linking, but him and Rashford both need to sort out their shooting (at the right end)
People are always gonna criticize him if he doesn’t score or light the world up. He did well, nothing outstanding but he caused trouble with the limited chances he got. Compare that to the performance of an Mbappé and he was better.Had a fine first half, won the penalty, had a great run leading to a chance and generally did little wrong whenever he got the ball. Odd timing.
It was an unbelievably bad header. As well as shutting his eyes he turned his head the wrong fecking way. Seemed to just let the ball hit him. Woke him up a bit, though, like you say. Was better from that point on.He actually played alright after the own goal. The own goal was criminal though. You can’t shut your eyes when heading the ball. He’s a bit of a fanny.
"Won a penalty" is a bit rich to be honest. He was a bit wank today but you can tell both Rashford and Martial have no chemistry in the 3-5-2 yet, Rashford squandered some good positions and Martial made some individual errors that cost us. He was on a hiding to nothing in this game, if he has a good game he has to wait a while to play again, if he was shit then it is no big deal because he won't be back for a while.The guy just won a penalty and created his only chance. Any reason why Cavani should replace him?
If Cavani plays better he'll replace him. If he plays worse Martial will replace. All good for the team ! Let's not take sides okay ? Competition between both will bring the best out of everyone and will force both to work their socks off without being confident about starting every game. Cavani is absolutely not here to just collect his salary and set on the bench the whole season.The guy just won a penalty and created his only chance. Any reason why Cavani should replace him?
