Some glimpses here and there, but yes, I´ll be surprised as well. Not good enough for United.As an attacking threat in this team he's painfully average. I can understand us taking the gamble on him but it's clear he's not good enough at this level, far too many faults in his game. I'll be surprised if he's a United player by next September.
How many of those passes were threatening? How many shots were threatening?93% pass accuracy, 5 shots, 1 dribble, 1 tackle. Unlike yesterday, he was comfortable on the ball, and looked like a threat running at their defence from the left. One of his better games for United.
Literally none. I like his running and work rate and ability to chase down overhit passes but at the moment he is a hindrance in the side. Love the way his career started but we can't wait for him to find that form again when every game is so crucial now with our crap start in the league and also having so many better alternatives warming the bench.How many of those passes were threatening?

Well, at all getting into these shooting positions is better than what you normally get from James. In don´t rate him, but in fairness, his performance against Newcastle was for his standard, on the better side. That´s my opinion, anyway.How many of those passes were threatening?

Yep. What he showed against Newcastle was a decent squad level performance. Nothing better, nothing worse. If that's how he regularly played then he'd be a decent squad player.Well, at all getting into these shooting positions is better than what you normally get from James.

That's exactly what I was thinking as well. I'm worried he reads the Cafe.That was a very emotional celebration from him, hopefully gives him some confidence. He must be aware of the stick he is getting.
And he’s playing with much worse team-mates for Wales. Which should make it harder for him to make an impression. Swings and roundabouts. It’s obviously mainly a confidence thing. He believes in himself in a Wales shirt.Wales just plays against a much lower level of opposition.
Eh, I wouldn't say that. Worse team mates yes but he's very much an individual type player. Relies on his pace and skill to do his wing play and be a threat. International football has loads more space, generally more back and forth games and lower stabdard of defenders meaning he'll have his time and space to do his part. Same reason Pogba struggles in the prem. Way less time and space on the ball at the higher levels, more tactical, teams will sit back and restrict space and that makes James pretty ineffective. Of course confidence plays a part, but even full confidence James is never going to be a United caliber starting player (which is fine). He also just so happens to be someone who needs regular football to make an impact and build confidence, so using him as a squad player doesn't work all that well either.And he’s playing with much worse team-mates for Wales.

Well, considering how toxic this place is, I would say that it is no wonder if playing for United is heavy on players. I really wish Redcafe would be a little more positive. There are far too many moaners on here. It is fine having a discussion, but calling our own players sh*t and wanting them to feck off is just embarrassing. I was watching a match once and a United "supporter" shouted out that he wanted Herrera to feckin break his leg and die the wanker. When I told him off, I was the idiot -Maybe the pressure of playing for united is too much for the lad? I mean the crosses he was putting in all night were amazing. Really really good. His goal was top notch but most tellingly he played with a smile on his face. After pogbas comments aswell, has to make you wonder if playing for united is heavy on players. Just a thought.
Did anyone see the cross he put in for bale? Quality, pin point stuff.
feck LeedsI don’t know how true those rumours of Leeds wanting him were true but I think the club really screwed him over not selling him, we also could have made a rare profit from a player who’s actually been incredibly poor for us and never will be good enough so it could have been a win-win For everyone.
I think Daniel James will become a player we keep way too long and when we decide to sell his value will be non existent and the players career will be too far gone to salvage.
