Made of glass, like the rest of our defenders, yet nothing is done in the market.

Next time he's fit for any period of time listen to offers.

I can't even understand why he's even getting minutes this pre season. This guy should never have played for us again after the PSG disasterclass. Total Incompetence by the club wasting game time on him when Tuanzebe needs all the experience he can get.

He’s his own worst enemy. You can’t tell me his play style doesn’t contribute to his growing injury concerns. He’s contorting his legs in all sorts of way in the build up to the Son shot.

His positioning and awareness were atrocious even before the injury. They kept getting in on his side because he was unaware of the defensive line and Son was able to make runs in behind with ease.

Was it the same knee as last season? If so, almost certainly related to that injury. Could be a lengthy absence. He's always injured but I always feel bad when its things like knee injuries. Not much you can do about them.

Injured again, shocking.

Overrated injury prone player who is protected by his cult status.

The pitch was a mess to be fair. People slipping all over the place.

Feel really sorry for him, he's a good player but his body just doesn't seem up to it. Hope it's not a re occurance of his previous injury.

We all love United
Any updates on him? Was it the knee or ligament? I saw he had to be carried off by two blokes into the dressing room

Injured all the time and on the rare occasion that he's actually fit he's not even that good

Baffling why he's still here

The man has noodles for ligaments. If you keep getting injured because of twisting and turning then you're not cut out to be a CB. That's basically 90% of your job. Get rid.

I swear this guy looked like an absolute monster of a centre half when he first joined. What happened? Is my memory failing and he’s always been rubbish?

Tuanzebe is ready and still waiting for a chance for a full season in United shirt... not to mention he can keep his cool way better than Bailly.

Perhaps Bailly is faster and stronger but he's simply unavailable for selection almost by default, which makes him pretty much unproductive part of this team.

People complain about Smalling all the time while this joker and Rojo are still in the squad.

For me one of his biggest problem is that he cannot tackle, as in his tackling technique is absolutely fecking shit, no idea whether it's down to poor coaching when he was younger or him being brainless rushing into idiotic tackles but here we are, surely it contributes massively to his injuries problem. The way he fecking slides, it's that he's got absolutely no control of his own legs, most of the time the trailing one.

Whether my assessment is true or bullshit we should just get rid, another crock.

Now I'm more confused why did MUTV produced his documentary.

Telescopic legs? More like....Fragilistic legs

One of the CB’s should have been sold before the tour even started.

He's the R9 of defenders.

Watching the game. Son was ripping him to shreds. How do people rate this guy?

I'm saying it. If you think Bailly is a good player you know nothing about football. Simple as.
