Injuries really ruined him. Don't think he'll be here beyond this season and expect him to be another player to leave for free.
Not this again. Weghorst is all heart and effort, but he's worse. There is a reason Burnley rather cut their losses and sold him than even using him as back up. When you use shite standard to compare players then you still receive shite outcome because the better player, which Martial is, is dreadful.Not a footballer. Weghorst was more effective. And he was dreadful.
He was very good in his cameo against Bayern. Just as always, you never know which performance he would turn in. That goes back to he's less injury prone.What was that one moment this season when he looked like a decent player? It was weird, like we suddenly had old Martial back for a couple seconds.
Hojlund can be counted as young player. Our supposed super talented natural striker got into troubled and exiled to Spain to rebuild his career. In a functional squad, a young striker like Hojlund should either have an experienced starter ahead of him, or an experienced reliable back up. Here we have Martial. He's quite old enough in career experience, but he's never the experience in his game. Never know which kind of performance he would serve. And the good performance is rarer with his declining fitness,What’s going on in the youth that we can’t find someone to give his minutes to?
There’s no need to even comment on his performances anymore. We know his effort and level, but how is he still getting minutes?
Yup. I mean like ... Every loan we sent him on was an absolute disaster as far as Martial is concerned. Him being our backup no9 just wouldn't happen at any other club with title ambitions. That's how far we have fallen. Spunking massive wages on a player who never made much of an effort even at his peak, who knows he's never going to get near a club like Man Utd ever again, and is just seeing out his contract until the end.Total waste of a squad place. You always know what he'll give you and it's generally a half arsed effort without end product so yeah a waste of space.
I think he's mentally checked outAs a Martial fanboy, it's depressing to see what he's become. I always overlooked his demeanor, feeling like he's not the expressive type, but it's hard not think it told more about him, a possible red flag. He doesn't like football this lad. He should be busting his guts to at least earn a new contract but he doesn't seem to care to even do that.
I never understood why it matters what he may do for another team when he leaves. The fact is he's been utterly invisible here for years and offers nothing to the team. That's all we need to know. Matters not a jot if he does well elsewhere he's crap here.Need to get rid. He is just a pointless player at the moment, and has been for some time. Watch him get sold to Marseille or back to Monaco, magically be among the most available players in the world and absolutely tear it up. That would be our kind of luck
Was just thinking this - this must be the longest he's stayed fit in ages?... Though not playing any football (even when you're actually on the pitch) will help with thatIronically he's the one that has stayed fit when everyone else around him is dropping like flies.
