Absolutely. The Newcastle game would have become really hard work with Martial instead of Ronaldo.

Ole says he picked up "a strain" in the behind closed doors game during the international window. Was asked what sort of strain and he said it doesn't matter.

Yeah it was a strange response from Ole, not sure what to make of it

Yep I agree.

No chance does Martial score the first Ronaldo goal.

He just doesn't have that instinct or movement that truly elite strikers do.

It increasingly looks like a shite plan to avoid him getting called up in October.

I'm not questioning him being unavailable, he is not exactly Harry Maguire on that front, but the way we keep our cards close to our chest is bizarre.

He’s very particular about his fitness. Thankfully Ronaldo has immediately taken up the baton.

I think Ole said he was going to start training this week?

Ronaldo’s really putting him in the shade. United can’t afford to be relying on a part-time up front.

Would be nice to have him available for tonight but I'm also more than happy for a repeat of his contributions in the run in like last season even if that means we barely see him before then

We should keep this guy fit and engaged. He still has a role to play this season. We are going to have tired legs at some point and he will be invaluable

Lost the no.7 shirt, lost his place in the team, lost his car keys

Do we need this kind of negative energy around the team?

Was badly missed last night. Martial's finished at this club as far as I'm concerned.

Shame he couldn't play last night. Ronaldo might have stolen his thunder but I hope he understands this is Ronaldo, it's not just any player we've shunted him out for. He still has a part to play and the fans love him.

FFS Cavani still injured? Since he has joined he has missed a lot of games!

Good thing we bought Ronaldo otherwise we'd be starting the season with that wet blanket Martial leading the line.

Hopefully he’s back soon as he would be a great option. No movement from Martial is really telling. Edi doesn’t even have to do anything and he’s already more of a danger. Ole has been a bit hush about him as of late too so maybe he’ll mention something in tomorrow’s presser, but he needs to return soon.

:lol: Jesus. You’re full of bad takes this last 24 hours. He hasn’t yet been available for selection since Ronaldo joined the club!
That’s the whole point, Pogue!

He’s hardly available for selection, this season or last. There’s always lack of fitness, some knock, some issue related to travel. Seven games into the season when Ronaldo is rotated, he’s still not ready to play. Ronaldo’s two years older, but is so evidently completely dedicated to his craft, still able to offer a full-time contribution as a world class striker. Edinson? Not so much.

If Ronaldo had not suddenly become available, this season could have been really ugly early on: Rashford’s had surgery, Sancho’s ineffective, Martial’s disinterested. We’re quite lucky that the lack of Cavani has only become a noticeable problem last night.

Cavani was available for most of last season. Certainly had plenty of streaks of games that matched Ronaldo’s seven whole games so far this season.

Him and Rashford both missing the start of this season is obviously a pain in the arse but let’s not change history to make a point.

Really missed him as that focal point up front last night. We looked fairly blunt without him, Ronaldo and even Rashford available :(
