    Tells you everything isn’t it? Until he’s gone I have no hope for our club. One of the most talentless, brainless, and cowardly players to ever wear the red shirt.

    He's far from the worst to wear the red shirt but its a sad indictment of where the club is at that he's captain.

    I have no idea how he’s managed to be the main right back for the club, let alone captain. Either he has incriminating photos of Ed naked or he’s the luckiest bastard to be in the right place at the right time under so many managers. Pretty sure if we had a proper football structure the moment SAF retired, a DoF would have told LVG to bin him off... but alas since we don’t have that, all those post SAF managers have to figure it out for themselves, which is why we have so much deadwood.

    McTominay's pass wasn't good but why did he throw himself ? Why take that risk after a yellow card just minutes ago ???

    Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young as captains for Manchester United. Baffling.

    This thread is unfair tbh though Young does deserve some criticism. He was quite good when intially purchased and played in his right position which is as an attacking midfielder not wingback or centre back. He didn't ask to be captain, probably lack of alternatives. He was decent last season at left-back with Shaw still coming back to form and no other real options and has been an OK servant. Declined massively after Fergie retired and probably should have been moved on 2 or 3 seasons ago but you could say that about 4 or 5 in this squad.

    I can’t remember disliking watching a player play for us so much.

    His face. His kicking technique. The way he runs like a crab would walk. The fact he’s absolutely fecking hoching.

    We were better when down to ten and that isn’t exaggeration.

    Young tries his best but the way the club keeps rewarding mediocrity is nuts. He epitomizes that sadly

    If you ever want a quick explaination of why we aren't challenging for the title, read the thread title!

    His extension was a mistake I agree but you'll probably see Dalot start next season or maybe Tuanzebe back from loan. I bet you none of the other top 6 clubs would have offered him a deal if we'd allowed him to walk.

    It hurts my eyes reading this thread title, but shows you everything you need to know. Ashley fecking Young captaining this great club. At his best an average PL winger regular at diving now leading us against Barcelona in the CL next week. And we wonder why we are so far behind? Don't wonder, feck the ones that let this to happen.

    We actually played better football with 10 men today than with him on the pitch. Says it all.

    Couldn't agree more. Everything about him just angers me, I was almost glad when he got the red.

    Ashley Young was never consistently good for United.
    Our left side went from Giggs to Ronaldo to Young and that tells you everything you need to know about where we are at the moment.

    Prone to these absolute brainfarts. Was nearly sent off against PSG as well.

    RB needed badly.

    Too fecking right. The wingers for Villa and Wigan are the wing backs for Manchester United, in their mid 30's.

    I think Ashley Young being captain perfectly encapsulates our decline.

    Should have been shipped ages ago but we keep rewarding mediocrity. Can anybody in the transfer committee not see how avg this guy is? He will be shittier playing for lower clubs let alone us. And this guy is our captain. I thought Rooney as captain was bad but never thought we could fall to this level.

    Terrible in possession. When he came under pressure he would just launch it up field. Could not retain the ball at all.

    Smalling as well was the same albeit not as bad.

    I thought he was good the first 2 seasons after his move from Villa, the goals against Arsenal, good crosses, pace and I thought he performed well. After Fergie retired his form collapsed. No consistency in the quality of delivery, he seemed to lose that spark. I don't think anyone can argue he showed decent form last season at left-back. To the point that he ended up starting for England at the WC all the way to the semi-final.

    I would go further, it's a sign of utter failure from the club. You'll have to excuse me, there is someone in another thread getting cheeky because I said half our squad is Everton quality, he doesn't understand the difference between players and squad.

    From true leaders and winners, people bleeding for our shirt, putting their bodies on harms way, to Valencia and Young. When Rio was a DJ...

    Totally agree I thought after Valencia we couldn’t get a worse captain but we managed it , problem we don’t have a single leader at the club not one of them fit to be captain

    Once revered for our wingers and centre backs we, replaced Giggs and Ronaldo with Young and Valencia, and Vidic and Ferdinand with Jones and Smalling. After almost ten years they are all still at the club, and three out of four have signed new contracts. We really fail to aknowledge our mistakes, don't we?

    We really have a problem cutting the chord with average players that just aren't taking us where we think we belong.

    We are not very patient with young players with flair, Zaha and Memphis come to mind.
    But these hard working, 'do a job ' players, who wouldn't look out of place in Middlesbrough, are all coming up on their testimonals.

    The top teams are ruthless in this department. Barca signed Chygrinsky for a high fee in 2009, quickly saw he was wank and shipped him off. If he'd come here instead we would probably be planning a testimonal in the summer.

    I think the time something shat in his mouth in the middle of the game affected him psychologically. It’s all been down hill since then for Ashley.

    Hopefully he played his last game for us. Young wearing arm band (for that matter most players in our squad) shows how far we have fallen.
